Inspired by a recent purchase, we are talking hot bottoms. Literally speaking. I am a huge fan of cable knit sweaters, now we are transitioning the cable knit into the form of shorts. They add a unique texture which are rare for a pair of shorts. The nice thing about these knit bottoms is that you can wear them year round. Wear them when you're headed to the beach this summer or over a pair of tights come fall. Your tush will always be one hot bottom.
I can't get enough of Yves Saint Laurent's RTW collection for the season. Sorry, Saint Laurent rather. It's so major, I wish I had every piece in my wardrobe. The perfect blend of late romanticism, tailored boyfriend appeal and combined with a modern twist of the 70s. I've been extremely inspired by the 70s lately, and personally wish I could pull it, however, a girl can dream. Rachel Zoe on the other hand, always looks phenomenal in a 70s inspired outfit. Wide legged trousers are top of mind right now. Personally, I wish I could dress like this everyday, but I don't know how the streets of Toronto would handle it.

Grunge. The careless look of tousled hair, oversized clothes, rips and studs... or as Jean Paul Gaultier told Vogue in 1993, "Grunge is nothing more than the way we dress when we have no money." To each their own, but a lot of today's fashion stems from the grunge subgenre of alternative rock from the mid 80s. My latest trend love are grunge shoes. You will definitely see them heading into pre-fall and fall collections next season. Now, these aren't a dainty little thing, honey. Think slightly exaggerated, chunky and bold. Try these shoes to downplay a feminine outfit or wear them as a bold statement to accent your outfit.

There's something about the jumpsuit that is appealing to any woman - it's clean lines, the fact that it is non-fussy and all you have to do is slip into it. What's not to love. The sleek jumpsuit is perfect for evening wear and is the ideal alternative to a dress or pantsuit. These four are my favorite for the season. When choosing a jumpsuit, remember it's all about cut and fabrics. I personally like a lighter material with movement such as silk or satin crepe.

Swimwear season has arrived and I feel ill-prepared. I tend to be picky when it comes to swimwear as we all should be. Used to oversized looks, this is one you can't just borrow from the boys. Sticking to the normal uniform, I love all black swimwear which focuses on the details. This season, I'm digging the scuba-esque sportswear trend when it comes to swimwear. It's completely different from what you would see on your regular beach babe, yet it is still completely sexy.

Men's pants have been top of mind lately. Well the whole borrowed from the boys look is always favored in my books. This look was inspired by boyfriend denim. Pair your baggy pants with classic black pumps and feminine materials such as silks and tweeds. Don't be afraid to throw on a statement bauble necklace to finish off the look and to add a girly touch. This outfit works because it's easy-to-wear, stylish and is a great casual go-to outfit every girl must test out.
