Long Weekend


Happy Wednesday, loves! I feel like my posting schedule has been super sporatic lately--and that's mainly because I just started my full time job (FOR REALS now, no more training!) and it's been such a whirlwind the last couple of days. Anticipating longer work hours already, but not going to give up on this blogging gig...just be prepared for some late night posts and editing! ;D

This last long weekend marked the final few days of being totally work (and stress!) free. A whole 3 days to myself in the city while everyone else headed out of town for the holiday. Needless to say, it was a completely packed weekend--from a trip to the Prospect Park Smorgasburg Sunday afternoon, to dinner and drinks over at Grand Banks in the evening...to a nice lowkey movie date with the bae the next day. Which movie did we catch? You'll know if you followed along on snapchat! ;D šŸ‘»:Achen12

While it's power dressing on the weekdays for that 9-5...I'm all about those casual summer vibes during the weekend. Been seeing the lace up trend completely blow up--first from shoes and now over to dresses & tops! Can't get enough of this white lace up shift dress, perfect for all your summer weekend endeavors when you pair with a light wash denim jacket!

Meanwhile, found the only sunnies I'll be needing this summer--except if you do get bored of them, return and rent a new pair with Ditto's designer sunnies rental service! A different pair of sunnies could mean a completely different feel to the same look. Accessories are everything. Best part? Ditto makes it completely hassle free and so easy to rent. Plus, not only are they just $24/month--get your first month FREE with my code "aretastylesecrets"! Treat your wardrobe to an endless supply of designer eyerwear. ;) You won't regret it.

That's about it for now. A couple of super exciting things that have been in the works for months and I can't wait to share! Coming soon...very soon. 

With Much Love,
