fashion-blog-outfit-ideas-a-side-of-vogue

  This is the perfect example of an outfit I didn’t know I needed until I owned it. I bought these black high waisted shorts, and this blue and white striped top (how fun is the flounce!?!) while I was on my way to the beach for the day, with my mom, and we stopped for an impromptu shopping spree. I’m so glad we did because this has been one of my favourite outfits this summer. I might even go as far as saying it is the perfect summer outfit. The top is a mix of classic and trendy. Classic…

Home Tour, House Inspiration, Decorating, Interior Design, Home Decor

What I love most about this SoCal Bungalow home tour is how the pops of colour really stand out among the neutral canvas. The whole house gives off major beach side vibes – something I can never get enough of! From the perfectly styled bookshelves, to the minimalist bedroom, to the oh-so-inviting living space; I have the urge to lounge around in an easy breezy swimsuit cover-up, before and after hitting the beach. A few things I love about this Home Tour: the double rug – one neutral and one colourful the exposed beams on the ceiling the dark hardwood…

how-to-dress-up-shorts-outfit-ideas

I’m a huge lover of skirts and dresses, but sometimes I just want to wear a pair of shorts. And sometimes that urge happens to be when I’m going out for dinner and want to get dressed up.

Dressing up your shorts is actually really simple to do, even though it can seem daunting. Here are three easy steps to create a fancier look: The number one…

Boho Decor Ideas, Home Decor, House Inspiration, Modern White Chair, Beachside Home Tour

There has clearly been a boho theme on the blog for the last few posts (see here and here) so I figure, why not keep it going for one post longer with this two-bedroom Mexican abode? It is summer after all, and if you’re anything like me, that makes you feel free and alive – which is pretty much what I think about when I think boho vibes. There are a few things in this home tour that aren’t my style (for example: the the faux animal head decor on the wall), but looking past those details this home as…

Flower crown with white summer dress and brass necklace | A Side of Vogue, fashion and lifestyle blog

I have an inner hippie. What I mean by that, is that I have this desire to be barefooted on a beach, with a flowy dress, flowers in my hair, and not a care in the world. Do you ever have a longing for this too, or am I the only one? As you saw in the most beautiful boho style summer picnic I’ve ever been to, I had a chance to release that inner hippie for the day. It was magical. If you had a chance to view that post, you already know know what outfit I wore; but…

Boho Inspired Summer Picnic Party, more on A Side Of Vogue

Today we’re taking a look at the most beautiful boho style summer picnic I’ve ever been to; where I had the chance to release my inner hippie. To say I was on Cloud9 is an understatement; because a group of girlfriends + a beach + delicious food + pretty everything = the best day ever. Seriously, if I could go bare foot on a beach, wearing a floral crown, everyday, I would! I spent the day with a bunch of awesome ladies I met since starting my blog, that I am so blessed to call friends (Jenny, Kaylee, Talia; and…

The Best Home Decor Of The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, NSale Online Shopping

With all the thought about how Klay and I are going to redecorate the condo (which is coming along really S L O W L Y), it’s no wonder that I got lost browsing the Home section of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I was adding everything to my wishlist; one might say it was getting a bit out of control (if that’s even possible?). But you guys, there are a lot of swoon worthy home decor items for really great prices (the home sale section has 1840 products!!). I know that I already briefly touched on my favourites for the…

feminine-style-inspiration-a-side-of-vogue

There is something about a pretty feminine midi skirt that instantly makes me feel great! Do you have a piece of clothing that does that to you? When I saw this one in H&M I knew I had to have it – the floral applique was too pretty to resist (it also comes in coral pink)! In the store, I wasn’t sure what I’d wear the skirt with, so the true test was taking it home to see if it looked good with anything already in my closet. I was able to pull my white dress shirt out of my…

Today’s home tour is right up my alley, because it’s a small space with lots of style. You’ll understand when you see the photos below! There are shoes and handbags on the book shelf (my dream decor), trays of perfume, make-up and jewellery, flowers, lots of white, and an adorable bar tray on the mantle. ALL OF THIS, in 450 square feet!! 3 rooms in 1. I repeat, all of this in 450 square feet! Like, seriously, Dria Murphy, from the Alise Collective, is practically a magician! You can see why I had to share this, right!? Once again I find…
