My Top 5 Favorite Books

Good morning and Happy Monday everyone! With it now officially summer I thought I would share my top 5 favorite books, because there is nothing better than laying out in the sun with a good book to read.

1) The Help by Kathryn Stockett

2) Only Time Will Tell by Jeffrey Archer 

3) Shanghai Girls by Lisa See

4) We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter

5) Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton 

Do you have any recommendations for me? I’m always on the hunt for a new book!

Keeping casual today in a simple cut offs & striped sweater combo. I added on the wide brimmed hat because it has been crazy sunny here and I want to keep the sun off my face, plus it’s super cute, and finished off the look with some white sneakers.

Corduroy Skirt & Bell Sleeve Blouse

Skirt – similar HERE, HERE & HERE

Sneakers – HERE

Maybe its the cold & windy weather lately, or the fact that I basically only follow Australian fashion bloggers but this outfit is giving me some fall vibes (totally unintentional by the way)! Of course this outfit would never be suitable for the chilly falls we experience here in Alberta, so I deem it perfectly acceptable for spring/summer.

Here I paired this super cute Corduroy Skirt in a beautiful rust color with a dramatic Bell Sleeve Blouse, keeping my accessories neutral with some White Sneakers and a simple Black Purse.
