Hello and Happy Valentines Day! 

I’m writing to you from snowy Blue Mountain this morning. Peter and I are about to head down for breakfast but I wanted to make sure I got this post up bright and early for you guys because 1. I wanted to say Happy Valentines day and 2. My favourite OTK boots just got marked down to $39!! My jaw was on the floor last night when I noticed the price drop, $39 is an insane deal for boots this cute and well fitting. If you’ve been eyeing them for a while or have been needing a good OTK boot, I highly suggest giving these ones a try. Grab them in black since they go with everything and I promise you’ll be thanking me next fall when all the OTK boots are full price and in high demand. Also I wanted to mention this wrap top, its super high quality so it would be perfect for work tucked into dress pants or a skirt but can also be easily dressed down with jeans – like I’m showing above.

Okay we’re off to breakfast and then headed into the Village for some shopping and exploring. Have a wonderful Valentines day everyone!

 

A Weekend Ready OOTD!

Happy Friday guys!

I realized today that I’ve been linking all my outfit details to mostly Canadian sites (since I’m Canadian) and seeing as so many of my readers are coming from the US, I decided I would start linking to both US & Canadian sites just to makes things seamless for everyone. Todays OOTD is a warm and cozy outfit, perfect for the weekend! It’s supposed to be another mild weekend here, which means I can finally leave my huge parka at home and wear thick knit sweaters instead. I picked up this cable knit sweater last week on major sale, I think it was $28 after all the discounts!? (extra 50% off with code GAPFIFTY) I sized up to a Medium for a roomier fit. Also I was so in love with my black OTK boots from this post, I ordered them in the Cognac colour too…they are such a steal for only $65!

In other news, I went to the gym everyday this week(Yay for small accomplishments!!) I’m super sore, but it feels good. Peter and I are taking blog pictures today and then going for sushi tonight and I’m sooo excited, I’ve been craving it all week!

 

 

 

Black & White Buffalo Check!

Good morning guys! Todays #OOTD is an outfit I wore over the weekend to grab lunch with Peter. This look is one of my favourite outfits I’ve styled lately, I just love the look of OTK boots with fitted dresses… and the buffalo check scarf really pops with the whole look. I’m so glad I found these boots because they dress up even the simplest outfits, and are at such a good price point right now at $65! The sweater dress I’m wearing is super comfortable and soft, I love the little mock neck and the zipper detail down the whole back of the dress. I purchased an XS in this dress so it would fit my waist but because of that it is short. Keep in mind though I’m really tall so to anyone of average height or shorter, its going to hit you mid thigh!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I’ll see you guys on Wednesday for another handbag review!! You guys seemed to really love the last one so I’m going to do one for my new Michael Kors Sloan bag(pictured in todays post).

See you then!

Bring on 2018 + Life Updates!

Hey guys,

Just wanted to check in with you and wish you all a very Happy New Year! I’ve been sick in bed for the past few days, which is the last way I wanted to ring in the new year – but hey, at least I’m going into 2018 well rested haha. I’ve got some big plans for this year and can’t wait to start putting them into motion. Every January I love getting super organized and refreshed, I always start by donation pieces in my closet/room that I haven’t been wearing or using in the past year. Going from drawer to drawer completely re-organizing and cleaning everything so I know where everything is when I need it next. Luckily I did that the week before Christmas (before I got sick) which makes me feel a little less guilty about being stuck in bed this week.

My biggest resolution for 2018 is to make my blog a priority again. I get so caught up in trying to juggle everything perfectly that I get overwhelmed and end up hiding from it all. This year I’m taking the pressure off by being more organized and taking things one task at a time. I also really want to start incorporating video into the blog (which I know I’ve mentioned before).The topics won’t be anything too different from what I usually post on here but it’ll just be in video form, which will help me to better connect with you guys! And as for that Vlog I told you guys about a while ago…Its done and ready to upload. I tried uploading it multiple times but every time I do there’s a weird fuzzy line through the screen whenever I’m talking. So I’m trying to fix that before it goes up, which will hopefully be by the end of the week(fingers crossed). I was thinking of filming a ‘what I got for Christmas’ video too, so let me know if thats something you’d want to see! I’m open to any video or blog post topic ideas you guys might have, I’ve been making lists of my ideas lately but would love to know what you guys want to see.

Also, I wanted to say thank you to everyone whose been following along through 2017. You guys are the absolute best and I appreciate every single one of you! I’m going to do a lot more giveaways for you in 2018 as my way of saying thank you<3
