Outfit of the day and a couple of great sale items

I've gotten a bit of feedback about the outfit of the day idea and you tell me you like it so here is attempt number two. :)
This is a fun, easy and colourful summer style. Maxi dresses are breezy and light and a good way to beat the heat.

Cardigan: Winners, I wore it in the last OOTD, the brand is Say What?
Maxi dress: Winners again, I just got this one and it was only $19.99, brand is She's Cool.
Wedges: B-O-C
Necklace: Everything Luxury, an eBay store
Bracelets: EllaMarsh and Walmart
Thumb ring: it's old, not sure where I got it

I also tried a Pinterest inspired hairstyle today. It was very easy, just tie a low ponytail, pull the pony through itself once and then roll it almost like it's going to go through a second time. Fasten with some bobby pins and add a few flower pins. Easy, cute and super summery.

I have a couple products to mention that I found on great sales. This Dove dry shampoo is one of the best ones I have used, and I have gone through quite a few of them. A dry shampoo is a summer must, with the increased heat the scalp can get oily so fast. A dry shampoo isn't the same as fully washing your hair but it can definitely get you another day or two between washes. 
This particular dry shampoo is on sale at Shoppers Drug Mart right now for just $2! The scent is great too.

 I found this Maybelline Eyestudio make up palette on sale at London Drugs. Regularly $12, on sale for $7, a great deal and I love the colours.

The pigment is very good, especially the teal. I am wearing it for the first time today so have only had it on for a couple of hours but so far staying power is good with no creasing(I'm wearing a shadow primer under it).

Hopefully you get a chance to cash in on these great deals. In the meantime I leave you with this great summer song. It makes me smile every time I hear it. :)
