Happy Monday! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! Hard to believe that less than two weeks ago I was roaming around Mykonos, Greece in sleeve-less dresses, flowy pieces and strappy sandals. I visited a fabulous Toronto boutique, Sense of Independence prior to my departure to pick up some new pieces for my honeymoon. I ended up with this mix medium sweater vest (along with a few other favourites) and I absolutely love the added chiffon layer that nearly sweeps the floor. It’s an item that is truly unique and perfect for transitional weather. I paired the sweater vest with a basic black ribbed dress and some new accessories I received from ALEX AND ANI to celebrate the launch of their flat rate Canadian shipping offer ($9.95 or free for orders over $75).
I’m excited to partner with Sense of Independence to give one lucky winner an electronic gift card valued at $100 Canadian dollars to be spent on their online boutique. I love shopping there because they have SO many great finds and unique labels that are not readily available in major retail stores. A few on my lust list are the RENEE 3/4 Sleeve Print Dress, KERISMA Flowy Open Coat, and KENSIE Buffalo Check Blanket Sweater. Be sure to check out the boutique, free shipping on orders over $100 within Canada and $9.95 across the US!

We spent most our time in Mykonos getting lost on the island and finding different nooks and crannies to explore. The island was truly a dream. Mykonos, is most famous of its beaches, architecture, and most of all, nightlife. However, most of the beach parties, nightclubs, and beach bars are already closed for the year in late September/early October, which made the island less busy but incredibly enjoyable for honeymooners like us. We stayed 3 nights at the Belvedere Boutique Hotel which is where these photos were snapped (literally just outside of our hotel room). I’ll be sure to share a full list of travel recommendations soon, so please stay tuned!
