ShopSense Sale Picks

Good morning ladies!  You know I try to keep things as affordable as possible here (for my sake too!) and share how I mix and match various price points.  That said, major sales are happening this time of year and ShopSense is having a huge sale on current season designer items!  This never happens so if you're in the market for a specific handbag or pair of shoes, now is the time to jump on it.

 I've been eyeing that Alexander Wang wallet in the top row and you know I recently picked up the Givency Antigona--but how beautiful is it in the cream colour (they also have two black versions on sale here and here).  Per usually I'm loving neutrals, and I think if you're going to take the plunge and invest in a designer bag, a neutral colour is your best bet.

Dressed Up Boyfriend Jeans


Today I'm sharing how I like to dress up my boyfriend jeans and it's quite simple: nude pumps, a chic leather jacket, and simple accessories.  I love denim with some interest and the rips on these are great.  It's definitely a looser fit than I'm used to, but great for days when you want to be slightly more comfortable and on trend at the same time.

To dress these down, I rock them with tennis shoes but recently picked up some cute espadrille flats that I think will be great or a pair of tan gladiator sandals and a basic v-neck tee.

Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

shoes // tank (similar) // leggings // headphones

On Friday night I literally had to drag myself to the gym, but it was made easier when my girlfriend agreed to come with.  

Afterwards, a few quick errands and I went home to find Marco waiting with sushi for us #yay!

Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale Picks

The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is happening through May 31st and there are so many great deals; if you're looking to stock up on some Summer essentials or designer pieces, this is a great time as thousands of items are up to 40% off (pictures are click-able).

I love both fitted and flowy tops for the gym but the latter are nice for those days you're feeling bloated.  Colourful leggings and cool cut outs are my favourite for adding interest in the gym.  I'm in love with that windbreaker and like to rock various shoes at the gym including trainers for cardio days and hi-tops for heavy lifting.

Floral Romper & Givenchy Antigona

Spring has final sprung and my wardrobe couldn't be happier!  I feel this new sense of excitement now for getting dressed with the endless options now that the warmer weather is finally here.  

I picked up this romper a few weeks ago and shared it in My Spring Picks video.  I've already worn it a couple times--to brunch for Mother's Day being one of them.  It's the perfect combination of chic, yet covered, yet on trend all at the same time.  The sleeves win in my books too because I find it rare to find a romper with sleeves that fits and flatters.

Long Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Happy Tuesday!  Yesterday was Victoria Day in Canada making it a long weekend which was seriously just what the Doctor ordered.  The weekend was pretty busy until Sunday night, so Monday was a great day to do me and recharge.  With that, onto the snaps!

On Friday night I went and got my nails done and chose this neon pink from China Glaze (I normally tend towards OPI or Essie, but there was nothing as fluro as this and I loved it).

The Perfect Cat-Eye Make-Up Tutorial

Today I'm sharing how I create my usual, daily winged liner, or cat eye, with liquid liner.  I've been wearing this for years, alternating the thickness of the line depending on how I'm feeling, but it's definitely my go-to look.
I know liquid liner can be a little tricky and a little intimidating, but I'm sharing a secret trick I use, combined with a little patience you'll be getting your feline on in now time.  Check out the video below...

A Crop Top for the Office

H&M crop top (similar) & skirt (similar) // Enzo Angiolini pumps // Nine West bag (similarlove this one) // sunnies // The Bay cuff

This is definitely a look I'd wear to the office, however, I'd pair a full cami underneath instead of just a bralette for a bit more coverage.  

You ladies know how much I love neutrals and the office is no exception.  That said, I do feel a pull towards a bit more colour for Spring and love how this cross-body bag looks more chic when carried on the shoulder for work.

Weekend Casual for a BBQ

We went to a BBQ on the weekend, the first of the season, and it was pretty chilly so I threw on these comfy jeans and oversized sweater.  The perfect combination of not overdressed, comfortable and put together.

My Chucks are getting pretty worn in as they've become my to-and-fro gym shoe, not to mention worn to the death during our trip to NYC last Fall.  However, I remember when I first got them and they were so white, I just wanted them to look more worn in--oh how I'm eating my words now!

Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

On Saturday morning I got up pretty early and had the day to myself since Marco was playing in a golf tournament.  It was actually quite nice to have zero plans but plenty of options.  Will I clean?  Will I shop? Will I sit around in my gym clothes all. day. long. ?! 
I hit the gym mid morning and then made a couple of stops on my way home.  Then, got super productive and cleaned and did laundry all afternoon, which wasn't very fun but I turned up the EDM and got it done.

White Distressed Denim & Stan Smith Sneakers

Garage denim jacket (similar; love this silhouette) // Joe Fresh striped top // Urban Planet pants (DIY'ed; similar) // Adidas Stan Smith kicks // American Eagle scarf (similar; splurge) // Christian Siriano cross-body bag (similar; similar) // Ardene sunnies (similar; classic splurge)

Lately I have been living in sneakers during the evenings and on weekends.  There is something so effortlessly cool looking about a dressed up (or down, in this case) outfit with a pair of fresh whites--not to mention comfy!  I pulled out this new scarf to add a pop of neon colour to an otherwise fairly neutral palette.

Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

I spent Friday evening at the Genuis Bar at the Apple store, attempting to get my MacBook fixed.  It's been really slow lately and editing videos has become so difficult and much lengthier due to this.  Unfortunately I have to go back tonight and try another route.

Boyfriend Jeans & Stan Smith Sneakers

Urban Planet cardigan (similar) // Harlow tank (similar; similar) // Urban Planet denim (similar & love these in white) // Adidas Stan Smith sneakers // American Eagle necklace // Gucci sunnies

I have never been a huge fan of boyfriend jeans, for myself at least, but these ones, which have a slimmer fit, are more like girlfriend jeans and right up my alley.  I love distressed denim and these have just enough relax to them (and a high-waist #instaspanx).  As you know, I love neutrals, but when I saw this tanergine-peach cardigan, I gave it a go and loved it!  I think the warmer weather is making me want to inject some colour into my wardrobe.

Lastly, I replaced my Pumas with these chic Stan Smiths, which I have loved from afar for years.  They definitely aren't as comfortable, but I love the look and pop of green.  I can't wait to style them in a more dressed up manner with black skinnies and a long wool coat.
