Life Lately: August 2017 Edition

I’m not sure about you all but I am not ready for summer to be over. I still feel like I need more summer fun and I’m looking forward to the end of August as I’ll be off on vacation.  My hubby and I both took off the last week in August to do some last day trips with the girls.  I also like to take off the first week in September to help with the transition back to school.  I cannot believe my baby girl is going into grade 1, yikes this is such a big step for her and mommy too.

Anywho hope you are all enjoying these last few weeks of summer break and here’s a little bit of my life lately:


Truth be told I’m not much of a T.V. person in fact I haven’t watched many of the iconic shows that have been around in the last few years.  However, since my girls are still going to bed early the hubs and I decided to take advantage of this and try out some shows so we can just chill out together.


I mean come on for all you GOT addicts, isn’t this season incredibly epic?! We don’t usually watch live T.V. so we have gone through all of the seasons in the last year.  It’s exciting to be watching season 7 as it unfolds and it certainly does not disappoint.


This is another show we are both obsessed with, we are so ready for season 2 on October 31.  This show is T.V. at it’s finest if you ask me-it’s original, has fantastic writing and very talented actors so all around a win-win. I am a fan of anything 80’s so this show is also nostalgic and the dark 80’s retro music is very cool.  It does have the sci-fi element so it may not be for everyone but whether you are a fan of this genre or not it is worth giving it a shot.


Chelsea 28 floral dress (sold out but I also love this one, this one and this one) / maxi dress C/O Shopbop (sold out)

My second cousin just tied the knot this past weekend.  I don’t often get to see my cousins and extended family so I enjoyed having the time to reconnect with people.

I wore this Chelsea 28 floral dress for the day, this was actually the first purchase I ever made from Nordstrom (sorry as it’s sold out online).  Since Nordi’s arrived in Toronto this brand is one of my faves.  Here are some more chic items from their fall collection.

The strapless maxi dress is from Shopbop.  It was one of the items I choose from Shopbop after working with them but unfortunately it is also sold out:( It’s by a brand called Cooper & Ella if you were interested in checking them out.


Although I have been on a shopping ban the last month I can’t help but be excited for fall…well fall shopping that is and here a few things I have my eye on:

1. cold-shoulder babydoll top / 2. light coat / 3. V-neck sweater /4. ankle skinny jeans / 5. booties


For my birthday my hubby surprised me with COLDPLAY tickets! The concert in Toronto is on August 21 and I am counting down the days.

Here is one of my fave Coldplay songs live in concert from Paris:

Thanks for stopping by and reading!

    We like saving all the GOT episodes for a huge binge. It is too hard to wait an entire week! Lol! 🙂 I love those dresses and you have some great things on your fall wish list. Those booties gave me all the heart eyes. I hope you have a great weekend!

    I used to be all about shows until I had kids and now I still haven’t gotten back into them. We did watch The Crown and I loved that. I’d love to watch Game of Thrones, but I feel so far behind now! I love that blue dress, so gorgeous!
