Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had an amaaaaazing Labour Day long weekend. In Canada/America it’s the unofficial end of Summer, but I’m just not ready to let it go! Firstly, this past weekend in Toronto, we experienced a bloody heatwave, which I can’t remember ever happening in the past couple of years. So clearly, Toronto is holding onto Summer and I have zero complaints about that.

Anyways, let’s get to the outfit – shall we? I kept it simple and casual in white denim and a striped knit long-sleeve. I think sometimes I want to overshare/overwear everything and make a statement that I forget, less is truly more. I kept it clean and fresh with neutrals from head to toe, but prevented it from being boring with a pattern on the top and the bottom. I find that when you understand the anatomy of your outfit, you can incorporate bolder pieces to compliment but not overwhelm.

Tell me in the comments below, how do you add prints/patterns to your outfits without them taking over?
