casual cape

The weather is erratic in Toronto…snow, unseasonably mild temperatures, wind storms and of course unseasonably cold temperatures. I don’t even know what I’m going to wear from day to day. But I do know that this cape (last seen here) can be “winterfied” with a nice cashmere sweater and long gloves. Lunch with a very [Read more…]

it bears repeating - faux leather leggings

This blouse and these faux leather leggings are in heavy wardrobe rotation (last seen here & here). I’ve just been changing the toppers to switch up the looks. To be honest, I have been wearing the three pairs of pants over and over again – these faux leather leggings, the wine coloured cropped trousers (here) and the [Read more…]

another cape...still from Ann Taylor

I am still feeding my cape obsession and it’s because I love the drama. I don’t like personal drama but I can get behind wardrobe drama – especially when everyone has access to this type of drama.  I wanted to pair this cape with an outfit that would showcase how great this cape was and I [Read more…]

leopard coat

Still borrowing from LOFT and featuring this beautiful leopard coat. My favourite part has to be that the sleeves are a decent length on me. I also think that pattern is perfect. Canadian women own lots of black wool winter coats. If you’re looking to update your wardrobe try this “neutral” pattern. Paired with these [Read more…]

the scarf

This past weekend I attended another blogger conference Blissdom Canada. I left that conference full of ideas, learnings and actionable findings. My market research brain was sated because the sessions I attended where led by industry heavy weights like editors Jennifer Reynolds, Brandie Wiekle and Sandra E. Martin and speakers Shelagh Cummins and Scott Stratten [Read more…]

lbd

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I was at a wedding over the weekend. I was struggling with what to wear and decided on a classic little black dress (lbd). LBDs are great because you can easily dress them up with the right jewelry and shoes. Wearing – LBD, Pink [Read more…]

fall cardigans

This outfit, specifically the tunic and jeans, has become my go to for running around doing errands and meeting friends for lunch. It’s easy and adding this long cardigan, scarf and navy suede shoes transforms this outfit (which I featured here for Chico’s last time) and make it ready for fall. The scarf is from Chico’s. [Read more…]

Can I have a "J" for Joe Fresh

It’s hard to take the fancy out of me.  Outfit Details – Sweater, Joe Fresh || Jeans, Gap (old, similar here, here & here) || Shoes, Ann Taylor (similar here, UK Manolo sale here) Linking [Read more…]

I was able to see some old blogging friends, Jenny from Crazy Style [Read more…]
