  I’m not afraid of colour. Are you? I often look around the blogosphere (well, on Instagram specifically) and see a whole lot of monochrome colour palettes. I’m talking about all, and only, neutrals. While I love this colour palette a lot, because it looks très chic, I am a huge fan of colour. But, sometimes it can make me feel like an outsider.  What I have learned from posting outfits on my blog over the past few years, is how important it is to keep doing what brings me joy. If I was someone who loved to wear only…

  There’s a buzz everywhere right now about fall fashion; but the reality is, it’s still really hot outside. Don’t get me wrong, I’m really excited all the amazing clothes fall has to offer, and I’m looking forward to embracing all the super fun fall trends coming our way. But (yes, there’s a but), summer is so short that I am holding onto it as long as I possibly can. Blazers, coats, boots, jeans, scarfs, and everything else fall. Yes please! Just give me a little time to come to terms with the fact that I won’t be hitting up…

Fashion Trends and Outfit Inspiration by Style Blogger A Side Of Vogue

  I have a confession to make. While I love this top, because it’s breezy (great for the warm weather!), on trend, and ever so pretty, I’ve had the hardest time finding a way to wear it that’s flattering on me. You’ve seen me wear it here with pants, when I was touring Peller Estates Winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake; and while that’s okay for a casual look, it’s doesn’t do my figure any justice. It also doesn’t give the top (or my entire look) the wow factor I know it has the potential for. After tearing everything I own out of…

Feminine Vanity Desk for Make-up from Anthropologie

  I can’t even tell you how much I adore the feminine vanity desk set-up in the photo above. I was searching Pinterest for inspiration and came across this photo. It was love at first sight! Everything about it is pure perfection. Would it be ‘not in good taste’ to copy this look exactly for my condo makeover? 😉 Because I would really really love to transport myself into this room; right this very second! I did some research to find out where it originally came from, and low and behold, it’s from Anthropologie! Like, hello!!? I always knew Anthrologie…

  One of my favourite ways to wear a midi skirt is to pair it with a classic button up collared shirt. It’s my go-to style trick when I want to look a little more “professional” while making sure my outfit is still fashion forward. Next time you decide to wear a midi skirt, I hope this post inspires you to try pairing it with a collared shirt. And, if you add a fun print into the mix (either the skirt or shirt) your outfit will jump up a notch on the wow factor scale. What’s your favourite way to…

  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. Does that ever happen to you? If so, and you’re looking for ideas on how to dress up a pair of shorts, I hope you find inspiration from my outfit in this post. 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…
