Top Style Blog: Summerxskin

QC’s head office is located in Ottawa, Canada, so we do have a bit of a soft spot for our fellow Canadian bloggers. One of our absolute favorites is the top style blog written by the lovely Anum Khan. This Toronto native authors Summerxskin, and though it’s only been around for a little under a year, it’s already gathered an impressive and loyal following.

Anum (pronounced Ahh-num) named her blog after the song Summer Skin by Death Cab for Cutie. That in itself made us want to know more, but we were also intrigued by her unique and playful personal style. She just has a way of mixing basics with special little pieces to create the perfect ensembles. She also has a knack for choosing really great accessories. Sometimes we get jealous…

Check out some of our favorite looks!

Summerxskin is one of those blogs we check in with every once and awhile to get some down to earth yet playful everyday style inspiration. We recommend you check it out, along with Anum’s Pinterest account and Youtube channel. Style and beauty inspiration galore! Get ready, you’re probably about to experience some serious blog love.

Blogger Feature: Janice Dickson

Much of our spare time is dedicated to keeping up with our favorite blogs, and we get so excited when we come across new ones. We love being inspired to try wearing new things, eating new things, and seeing new things, which is exactly the reason we’ve fallen in love with the style blog The Haute Life and its sister lifestyle blog Make and Manner. The lovely and highly humorous mind behind these two blogs is Janice Dickson from Toronto, Canada. She’s worked with the likes of fashion designer Philip Sparks and is on the fast road to making a name for herself, or we think so at least!

Janice’s lifestyle blog Make and Manner came along first, and is what we first got hooked on. She documents a wide variety of wonderful things, from everyday Toronto adventures to her recent travels. Throw in some delicious recipes, DIY’s, and creative outfit posts and you’ve got a must-read blog. We loved it when an outfit post would pop up here and there, so we were pretty excited when Janice launched The Haute Life, a blog dedicated specifically to style posts. Take a look at some of our favorite posts from both!

Oh yeah, she also has a sailboat and knows how to use it. That’s just plain cool. Visit The Haute Life and Make and Manner and see for yourself why we’re so enamored. These might just become some of your regular must-reads!
