Outfit deets:
* Walmart sweatshirt (similar and on sale & cute quilted version).
* Snap quilted sweat skirt (purchased at Winners; almost identical here & better quality here).
* Enzo Angiolini heels (also loving these).
* Accessories: Joe Fresh necklace, Swarovski & Expressions bangles.

I'm not sure why I haven't paired these two pieces together sooner because I'm essentially rocking a glorified sweatsuit!  Well, not exactly but I love the look of a sweatshirt and a statement necklace and since getting these shoes it seems all the outfits I have been waiting to wear with the perfect nude pump are coming to fruition.

I've had this sweatshirt for over a year and wear it now and again but always very casually and never to work.  That said, it's slim fitting through the arms and body which makes it more chic and paired with a statement necklace and fancier pieces it feels very put together.

Lastly, sorry the image quality isn't the norm, I convinced Serena to snap a few photos of me with my iPhone so I could share with you as it seems I'm often wearing a favourite outfit or new pieces on the days we aren't shooting.  Cheers.

Outfit deets:
* Vero Moda blazer which I purchased on Boxing Day and you've seen with a pretty floral dress.
* Jules & James fox top which you've seen with hot pink shorts in the summertime.
* Jacob jeans (thrifted) which I don't wear often because they stretch out quickly but I love the knee and back details on.
* Aldo Baulch heels which you've seen with red leather pants.  Considering I was torn on spending the $40 bucks on these and wear them at least twice a week, I'd say I've easily gotten my money's worth.
* Accessories: Limité necklace, Bijoux Terner cuff & vintage (via garage sale) clutch.

I picked up this cute fox top almost two years ago at Zellers and it's been a favourite in these summer and winter time.  It has spaghetti straps but the neckline is pleated and the fabric is a thicker, matte satin finish--all around goodness.  It feels good and looks good considering it was such an inexpensive find.  On top of all that, the print is cheeky and unexpected and always makes people giggle--I like that.

One of my favourite tips to share with friends when rolling your jeans is to keep it messy, 'Like you didn't try, but you actually did'.  It looks effortless despite the few minutes it took to get those messed up cuffs juuust right.

Outfit deets: 
* Vero Moda top (new!).
* Zara pants (old) which you saw a year ago at my birthday dinner.
* Aldo heels--my favourite pumps right now that I wear at least twice a week.  They are still available too in many sizes.
* Accessories: Le Chateau cuff, F21 necklace and Aldo & Spring midi rings.

I'm so excited to share these photos because I'm standing in my future kitchen.  I've been dreaming of all the things I want to cook and how clean I will keep the refrigerator.  Don't worry though, I'm sure that novelty will wear off real quick and we will be ordering take-out faster than you can say butter chicken.

As March quickly approaches, I'm starting to feel overwhelmed with all the stuff I have to do.  I'm becoming super ruthless with items in my closet and the sell/consign/donate pile has grown (check out my closet sale here).  That said, my apartment is suffering big time as it feels like I'm drowning in clothes--not a terrible problem, but still.  I keep telling myself it's temporary because as of March 1st, I'm going to take any items that don't sell to my favourite consignment store.

We have decided to officially move in the weekend of March 8th and are in the process of doing some furniture shopping.  We've decided on a beautiful platform bed and are on the cusp of sealing the deal on a sectional.  I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself but mister man wants me to hold off on sharing photos until we are in and settled--but not to worry, I've got befores and afters coming your way soon!

As always, thanks for stopping by and sharing this piece of my life, the comments on my move post were so sweet and supportive.  I feel I have real friends in you all, and I read every comment--now, who's coming to the housewarming!?

* Accessories: H&M necklace & midi rings & various bangles

Happy Thursday!  Oh happy day!  Some exciting things are in the works, and I'm totally going to be all secretive about it, but it's happy personal life changes that I will share soon, so stay tuned.

In other realms, I've had a really nice week, productive and busy.  I had several errands to run on Monday evening and then put myself in bed, asleep by 11pm--which is so rare (I love staying up late, which is horrible because I have to get up early; anyone else with me?).  Tuesday I had a styling client where we worked in her closet and styled over 20 outfits, which was a great success.  Finally, last night, a few more errands, a business dinner meeting and then got my hands on some quality time with my man.

This weekend doesn't look like it will be slowing down either with a birthday dinner, a baby shower and video editing in between.

Hope you are having a super week and jeans-day tomorrow!  C'mon weekend!

Outfit deets:
* H&M jeans (old).
* H by Halston cap-toe heels from Bakers (picked up in Vegas) which you've seen with maroon waxed pants, with a sequin skirt & when I went to Toronto in March 2013 for Fashion Week.
* Accessories: A.Co Designs key necklace & MK watch.

These photos are actually from months ago and I just realized I never posted them!  Nothing too special, a simple metallic sweater I picked up during my trip to Vegas and some skinnies for a casual Friday during the winter.  Definitely not wearing this sort of thing right now with the heat, thankfully.

How is everyone's week going?  Mine is pretty awesome (even at times when it's not so awesome, let's be honest, we can all be a little more grateful for what we do have, than what we don't) and I'm counting down till the weekend.  Love that it's a short week!

Happy 4th to all my American readers!  Thanks for your continued support, comments, likes on FB and Instagram and tweets.  And not just the Americans, but all my readers.  You guys really make blogging more worthwhile and more enjoyable so thank YOU.

Happy Friday!!

So last night I put a good dent into my packing for Domincan.  I spent hours styling outfits, laying them out on my bed, accessorizing, etc.  I'm a terrible packer and if I don't style my outfits, I will simply throw all of my favourite items into a suitcase and call it a trip.  Problem with that is, all my favourite items equal about 3/4 of my closet... and that doesn't fit in a suitcase... so...

I will be sharing with you tomorrow what I packed, from nighttime looks to bikinis to shoes.  I'm so excited to go away, lie on the beach (slathered in sunscreen) and just relax. 

Have a great day!

 Outfit deets:
* Calvin Klein dress (from Ross) that was a birthday gift from my parents (that I picked out).  First time wearing this!
* Dynamite faux leather, perforated blazer (a Christmas gift from my parents).  Seen with a ruffled top and navy.
* Payless heels (new!).  Love these and saw my mom rocking them and had to get a pair for myself (that's a first!).  They have a snake-skin print to them and a lower heel, which is nice for those days where you want a heel but don't want 4+ inches.  These are also super comfortable and when I went shopping with my girlfriend to get them, she picked up a pair for herself!
* Accessories: H&M necklace, Pandora bracelet, Suzy rings & Jacob bangle

Monday is here already!  My weekend went by fairly slow, and I did quite a bit so I can't complain too much.  That and with the weather getting warmer, it's getting lighter earlier in the mornings and the sun is staying out past 7pm making getting up for work on Monday not so bad (I'm grateful to have a job also, as there have been many lay offs recently and it's just awful).

Friday night I went for a massage after work at a new spot and it was amazing.  The girl really knew her stuff and gave my muscles a good work out.  Afterwards it was home to get ready and out to dinner.  Saturday ended up being a totally impromptu shopping day with one of my besties and I finally got to check out the new Marshalls that just opened up here; and you guys, I picked up some killer finds (video coming) that I'm extra excited about.  That evening was a birthday celebration for my grandpa (85!) and I hung out with some girlfriends afterwards.  Sunday ended up being totally lazy (well, I did go for a 'quick' 2km run, which is pretty impressive since I never workout on the weekend) and while I felt a little unproductive and bored at times, meh, sometimes you need that on the weekend.

Do you ever lose things?

I have never lost things before but lately my good habit seems to be changing.  Blame it on moving a few too many times, or just being simply unorganized but it's happening.  And it's frustrating.

Namely, one of my favourite necklaces has been misplaced.  It could be in a few places, but if I knew which places, it wouldn't be missing!  It's frustrating because I was always so diligent with keeping track of things and now I can't seem to help it!

Are you the winner of the Towne & Reese earrings?  Find out here.

I love inexpensive accessories (it means I can afford to buy more, right?) and love stocking up at H&M, Forever 21, Sirens, and lately, Dollarama.  Yes, the dollar store.  You'd be surprised what you can find there (if you haven't already looked) and why pay more than $1 for a pair of silver hoop earrings when you don't have to?  And nobody knows the difference!  Exactly.

So I'm siting down writing this post when I realize my tail bone is quite tender (yes, tender).  How did that happen?  And really, how does one get a 'tender' tailbone when you don't know how it happened.  Surely the only time your tailbone hurts is when you know you've done something to it.  Thanks body, also known as Secret Agent Body.

So I'm one of those people that always has to have music playing.  It's one of the first things I do when I get home from work; put some music on.  Whether it's a tv music channel, streaming it online or (last resort) pumping it from my iPhone.  My preference is always hip-hop, dance and ambient.  The latter is always my favourite dining music.  Music is a must when dining.  And when throwing parties.  And when cooking.  And, well, always.  Agree?  Agent tailbone does.

What's a post without words?  Um.  A wordless post?  You guys, it's so late, I'm so tired and I just need to go to sleep.  You don't mind if I skip the words this time and leave you with just some pictures instead?

PS - It's OPI 'Flashbulb Fuchsia'

I'll admit, the minute I saw these pants on Blair I was in awe and to find out they were from Old Navy (you mean, within my budget?!) and still available?! Hello!  I went out and hooked a sistah up, and by sistah, I mean myself.  While I normally wear skirts and dresses to work, it's nice to actually find a pair of pants that fit well and I love - a rare combo.

So I ran into this guy at work, that I don't see very often, while wearing the salsa dress... he's French and while I speak it, we were talking in English (a surefire way to ensure having some messages lost in translation) and he asked me if I was having a baby (I know it's a flowy dress, but...) and it must have been the shocked look on my face because he quickly retracted his question and realized what he'd said.  What he meant to ask was when I was planning on having a baby, not if I was having a baby.  Anyways, we had a good laugh about it, but geeze, the baby questions don't stop as soon as you get married!
