Four pieces of clothing that you need to add to your wardrobe this Summer

Summer is here! I’m super excited because it's Ava's birth month! Can you believe that she's going to be 2?!? It's almost 24 months since I gave birth to her. Getting back to my old self was a journey. I'm still not there yet.. HELLO extra 15 pounds.. but that doesn't mean that I can't try to look cute.

I’ve been on the internet hunt, looking for affordable clothing to rock in this Canadian HEAT and was able to snag some cute finds! I also realized that a lot of these fashion items can be used as Fall outfits, later on in the year! 

With that being said, here are four pieces of clothing that you need to add to your wardrobe!

TREND: Bomber Jackets

You don't have to be a high school jock to enjoy the bomber jacket trend.
They're fashionable, come in various prints/colours and are pretty affordable.

Fun in the Sun + My Vacay Bag

I wish I could describe how I am right now...Stressed is an understatement
Instead of dwelling on my woes, my fiancĂ© and I are going to take a nice island vacation. 
Just to clear our minds so when we get back we can work on the several tasks at hand. 
Nothing clears your mind like a beach, free drinks and sun.

It's so important to have a purse/wallet with you at all times on vacay. Especially something that can carry your suitcase keys, tip money, lipglosses.. need I go on.

This year I found the perfect sized cross body bag on Rosegal ($10.46 US).

I won't lie...
White is usually not the first colour I'd grab for but I wanted to get something outside of the box.
 The front of the bag is a hasp closure. Which is something that I usually avoid because if I drop my bag I don't want all the contents to fall out. But lucky for me this has an interior pocket. So if I drop my bag nothing falls out. Perfect! There is also a zipper pocket at the back. Plus another pocket inside. And of course the best thing about the bag (which made me interested in the first place)  is the fact that you can wear the straps around across your body or you can take them off and hold it like a clutch.  For me wearing it across my body would be best this will prevent me putting it down maybe to wash my hands and forgetting it to pick it up. Unlimited drinks might do that to you..

Fashion: Tribal Batwing Sweater

Have you ever seen an article of clothing on somebody else and really wanted it. I remember seeing a girl shopping in this amazing tribal print open front sweater. She paired it with a tank, leggings and thigh high boots. It was so cute!

I was contacted by Rosewholesale, while searching the site- I seen a similar sweater in cream! I had to have it.

If you're not familiar with the site they are:

Focusing on the very latest in affordable fashion style, both attire and accessories, we provide thousands of the latest in chic product lines, to give maximum choice to our discerning clientele. We aim to provide an extensive range of high quality, trendy fashion clothing – not only at the lowest prices, but also with a professional dedicated service to our valued customers from all over the world.
Since it's cold outside, I focused on sweaters (they have over 700 styles!). 
Plus they have a lot of cute tops and dresses that I would definitely add to my wardrobe.

The sweater I chose:
  • Oversized (can be worn with a belt)
  • Thick & Warm
  • Over universal size
I just have to remember to hand wash it..or it will shrink in the dryer.

There is a lot to view on the site. It totally easy to get overwhelmed and want to buy everything.
My tip would be sort by price, read the reviews and be aware of shipping costs from your country!

This purse is extremely well made. Nothing I expected to get from quality bought from the internet. I've been using it for over two months and I can tell you it's sturdy. You will definitely get a lot of compliments with this bag!

comparable to these cute shoes.
