Polka Dot & Leopard

I love blazers – my closet is overflowing with them. I cannot buy any more but I can borrow this polka dot blazer  from a friend. I mean the least I could do was show her how to style it, stay at home mom style. It’s who I am. I also told her she could [Read more…]

I’m doing something different today. I was approached by the Ontario College of Teachers (or The College) to discuss their role in the Ontario public school system. To be honest I had no idea what The College did or who they were. As I talked to some other parents I found I was not alone. As a [Read more…]

Joules - Floral Dresses and More

Recently Joules approached me to work with them and create a little board of some of my favourite things. They are a UK brand that is expanding their e-commerce business into the USA.

#WMCFW - Fashion Week

I didn’t get to many shows this season – so far none. #WMCFW fail. The stomach sickness has followed us this week. I was able to get to the Clarins event and I was introduced to their Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster (self tanner). I wore the most comfortable and chic pleated pants. Yes I actually [Read more…]

So Close...Yet So Far Away

I wanted to pair a bold colour with these pants and immediately thought bright pink would work with this plaid pattern. It’s been freezing so of course I layered. For the indoor pictures I figured might as well not be wearing boots and socks and I wanted a subtle shoe so nude flats it was. [Read more…]
