ON ME: Dress: Bench / Shoes: Town Shoes (similar from ASOS) / Bag: Bench / Hat: Forever 21 

In spite of returning to Canada from 48ºC weather in Dubai, I really haven't been coping with the heat all that well. When faced with a heat wave like the one we've been experiencing, pants are a strict no and there are only so many shorts I can reach for in a week.

That's why this free flowing dress from Bench is the perfect piece to take out on a summer day in the city. Olive green is a great shade to rock in the weeks leading up to fall - colourful enough for summer and subdued enough for fall. 

I'm the kinda girl that will try to cram her life into a tiny little bag rather than just upgrade to a bigger bag, so this leather backpack from Bench is basically a Godsend. It's easy to swing over the shoulder and pack the essentials (and then some).

To finish up, I added my favourite wide brim fedora, and these edgy silver cap-toe plimsols. 

Thanks for reading! We've got a lot of fun stuff in the works so come back soon and follow us on Instagram for updates.
