CASUAL DENIM

A wardrobe staple.

A denim jacket is an absolute necessity when it comes to transitioning between summer and fall weather. It’s ridiculously comfortable and goes with literally anything in your closet.

I found this treasure at Addition Elle and immediately fell in love. Being a tall girl, I loved the longer, oversized look of this jacket. It was perfect for all of my mini-ish dresses and skirts that I love to wear when it’s still warm outside but need an extra layer over in the evenings when it cools down. Enter the t-shirt dress. I’ve been living in them all summer and I will probably continue to wear them into the early winter. I actually love this on from ASOS because it’s a thicker cotton material, making it perfect for the cooler fall weather. Add a pair of my favourite sunglasses and sporty-looking running shoes and I’m good to go!

FENTY BEAUTY x RIHANNA

I’m definitely throwing shade, No. 480 to be exact.

If you haven’t heard about Rihanna’s latest beauty collection I cannot speak to you. Seriously, my own mother is obsessed and she barely wears makeup.

My theory is that anything Rihanna touches turns into the next big thing—from slip dresses to the sans bras trend, furry slides, and now an inclusive makeup empire. She’s a trendsetter like no other and she is quickly taking the beauty world by storm. I couldn’t be happier and I will support her, bank account allowing.

As a woman of colour, and most notably a girl with dark skin, I was so excited about Fenty Beauty the minute I heard there were 40 different foundation shades. I’m even more pleased to know that every time I walk into a Sephora, the dark girl shades are almost immediately sold out. I have to order online as a result, but I’m happy to do so when I know the product is THAT good.

And it’s not just the foundation. The entire collection has been flying off the shelves. My favourite are the Killawatt highlighters and the Matchsticks. Oh and then basically everything else. Why? Because RIRI.

CULLOTES AND LACE

I’m officially obsessed.

I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of culottes but never actually tried them on. Now I can confirm that I’ve been missing out on a comfortable and essential wardrobe item.

Not only are they easy to wear, they’re so easy to style. I couldn’t decide exactly how I wanted to wear them because there were so many options. I decided on balancing the looser fit of the culottes with a more fitted top. Enter the bodysuit and blazer combination!

Lingerie as streetwear isn’t new but I’m still about it. I love the contrast.

This Ashley Graham bodysuit is probably my favourite item in my closet right now and I will definitely buy a few more before the year is out.
