Long Sleeved Romper & Strappy Heels

Friday, July 3, 2015


O U T F I T  D E E T S :  ROMPER  |  HEELS - OLD (SIMILAR, SIMILAR)  |  CLUTCH / IPAD CASE  |  NECKLACE  |  SUNGLASSES

Although I'm not much of a dress person--I much prefer pants and shorts, or even a skirt--rompers are one thing I absolutely love.  It's a one-stop-shop for dressing but like the dress' cooler, big sister.  When I find one that fits me, I have to scoop it up.  This one from H&M is extra great because of the sleeves--which is perfect for evening (and great for ladies who like to keep their arms covered).

I dressed this up with some single-sole sandals I've had for several years that are still going strong.  If you're looking to up your shoe game, a strappy pair like this will get a ton of mileage from dressier looks like today or a more casual, edgy vibe like this.  They are one of my go-to style of shoes; they work from day to night, and with wedding season upon us will take you from ceremony to the dance floor.  Definitely a great, simplistic shoe you can add to your wardrobe at various price points.

Fourth of July Outfit

Thursday, July 2, 2015


O U T F I T  D E E T S :  HOODED DENIM JACKET (SIMILAR, LOVE THIS) |  OLD NAVY TANK - OLD (SIMILAR)  |  SHORTS (SIMILAR, DISTRESSED)  |  URBAN PLANET GLADIATOR SANDALS (SIMILAR, SIMILAR, LOVE THESE)  |  FRINGE BAG  |  BIZOU FLAT TOP SUNGLASSES (BUDGET FRIENDLY, WANT THESE SO BAD)

As most of you know, I'm Canadian so yesterday I was celebrating Canada Day with my friends (did you see the SnapChats?  I'm acoest1984 & they should still be live if you're here early enough) and also the long-awaited birth of my new nephew (eek!).

That said, I didn't get a post up in time for Canada Day style #redandwhiterepresent but since I know a lot of my ladies are American, I had to share this look as I love a good red-white-blue combo.

This look is super easy and perfect for a BBQ or picnic--just throw on some white shorts, a red top with some detail and a denim jacket--or swap the white shorts for denim shorts and throw on a white jacket instead.  Pair it with some gladiator sandals and a fringe bag to add some style and it's the perfect festive yet comfortable and chic look to take you from day to fireworks.  Also, I threw some white pants in my bag to take with me to keep warm just in case.

Workout Clothing Haul

Wednesday, July 1, 2015



Shopping for workout clothing has been one of my favourite things over the past six months, not necessarily because I'm working out more, per say, but simply because they're comfortable!

I love checking out Marshalls and Winners as they always have new stock every week and offer some of my favourite brands at great prices.  Since they turnover so quickly, I have to continuously be checking so I don't miss out (haha, what a theory!).

Today I'm sharing a huge, collective workout clothing haul from bottoms, tops, sports bras, etc.  A lot of the items I've purchased are available on line so check out the links below.

Thanks for watching! xo

A Look Back at June

Tuesday, June 30, 2015


June has come and gone and the only thing that is calming me is that Summer technically just began...otherwise, here comes the cliché: how is it the end of June already!?

In June I shared a ton of outfit posts, but that first pic and that last pic are my favourites.  I picked up a pair of wedges that I had been coveting for over a year and shared some of my Instagram / selfie outfits in a post (with links to purchase almost everything).

The highlight of June was a big birthday bash for a friend mid-month.  The host thought of everything from amazing food, lighting, a wicked outdoor scene and even a DJ who spun the best music all night long.  

I shared my new lace-up heels and bucket bag in an outfit post (from my Bag & Shoe Haul video), got more wear out of that floral romper, shared my purchases from our trip to Italy, and checked out a new rooftop patio with my guy one night.

It rained a ton, I wore my new fave muscle tee and shared how to update your wardrobe on a budget for Summer.  I picked out some new shades (which were included in my 7 Great Styles Under $25 post), got the coolest sports bra (under $20!) and got the new Triangl Bambi bikini.

Finally, something new to add to this month's recap, my June playlist--all my fave songs that I've been killing in the gym, in the car and at parties when I sneak take-over the music.

Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Monday, June 29, 2015



On Friday night I went for a manicure and got this sleek grey colour, which is super similar to a favourite I shared last month.  I had my girl re-shape my nails into a coffin shape and although they are a little short, she pulled it off (she's so good!).
