culottes for work

I had every intention of posting more last week, but it was just one of those weeks – bee sting, goose egg, asthma like symptoms and a personal loss. That was all by Tuesday. On Wednesday I’ll be on Cityline and I wanted to give you a sneak peak into one of my outfits – [Read more…]

pink skirt transitions

The weather in Toronto has been temperamental to say the least – you never know what you’re going to get. Then there are my obsessions with this popcorn sweater from Banana Republic and this pink skirt from Pink Tartan. Pairing it together is very 80s/90s and you’ll see this silhouette everywhere.

Today’s post is not the usual outfit ideas one, today I’m going to be discussing The Ontario College of Teachers (The College for the rest of this post) and why certification is important for teachers.

neutrals...again

I have been wearing this outfit on repeat but with slight variations – yesterday I had to add a jean jacket and I switched out the shoes for a pair of gold studded nude flats. Neutral dressing is easy and a great way to transition into cooler temperatures. Fall is here in Toronto and I [Read more…]

Texture and some more texture.

I have been featuring lots of midi skirts, today I’m going back to my roots. A simple and chic outfit featuring a textured pencil skirt and a great v-neck sweater. When selecting pieces for your wardrobe you’re not always going to be wearing the latest trends – basics are your foundation.   Some women may [Read more…]

This summer I went to the Hilroy Back To School preview. If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I was so inspired by the Nake Berkus products I cleaned out my laundry/craft/home office space and am in the process of adding shelving and art to make the space my own. I realize [Read more…]
