These early September days are so beautiful it feels like summer is lingering a little while longer before it leaves us for good. I took these photos a couple weeks back they are of my little cousin Jaime, she is a dancer with the most beautiful heart and spirit, it also happens to be her birthday today!

Sometimes there is nothing more appealing than a whispery dress to feel your best. I will be sad to be packing away my summer clothing items but still excited to start layering for the colder weather! This summer was my busiest yet but I somehow managed to have a good balance between summiting mountains, working towards a new career and casual get togethers with friends. I am looking forward to the fall as I am always excited for new beginnings. Adri is off at school and I am starting a new business venture that I cant wait to share with you! Farewell summer, thanks for the good times!

A couple weeks back I purchased a few items from Brandy Melville and instantly fell in love with the fit of the Bethan dress. I have linked below a few other dresses perfect for summer and that can easily transition into fall:) hope you find this helpful!! xx

 

1. This t-shirt dress from Urban outfitters is super easy to wear, comfy and casual.

2. I’m love with this Free people dress that can easily be transitioned into the different seasons.

3. I love everything about this dress. Plus its on sale!

4. Nasty Gal has some seriously cool cut out styles, I particularly love this one.

5. My favourite style of dress is a comfortable shift dress with selves like this one here

The other day I pulled out one of my summer dresses pairing it with black tights and a cozy sweater from Zara. For the majority of the summer I practically live in dresses but since it gets reeeaally cold where I live they sit in my closet during the long winter months. It’s nice to bring some floral prints back into my life since I have been wearing mostly neutral sweaters and leggings for the past little while!

 

hope you stay warm!

My friend Collete and I took these shots on one of the Gorge’s windier mornings. As a Hood River Native she is blessed with wavy wind blown hair, an excellent combination when paired with a simple and flowing dress (as seen here). Because hot days are spent on the water, an easy ensemble like this makes for the perfect Gorge approved outfit.

We love to showcase pretty dresses as well as family, friends and the talent behind them. Kaleigh Jo Kirk can sing and write her own music while playing almost every musical instrument you can think of. At 14 years old she will be representing Calgary as a Cultural Ambassador. The best part about her is that she is my little cousin and I love her!

Here is her latest song!

This dress would be perfect for a day at the beach! I love how the pretty crochet pattern adds a dimension while still preserving the simplicity of the dress. The necklace completes it so perfectly!

To me, summertime is about simplicity and light fabrics. I love the delicate lace top paired with the flowing peach coloured bottom! Also her peach nails to match. mmm peaches  xx

Here is a spirited girl wearing a playful dress! We love the cute flower pattern and the easy style. Most of all, we love the dress matched with a pair of red gum boots and a girl who will splash in the puddles!

Now with the warm weather making it’s long awaited appearance I have been on the hunt for the perfect summer dress! I am hoping for something easy, flowy and figure flattering. When I discovered the dresses above from asos had met all of my hopeful requirements and with so many cute styles to choose from I can’t decide which one to buy! Which dress would you get most wear out of this summer?
