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!

Happy Monday!

I know this outfit screams spring, but maybe if I dress like spring the universe will bring me some spring weather(lol wishful thinking!). I won’t lie to you – I was absolutely freezing shooting this look but I’m just itching for fresh colour palettes and light layers these days. I love this look so much, all the embroidery on this blush pink top makes me so happy…and of course I had to pair it with my favourite white denim! I can’t forget to mention this adorable scalloped tote, and its actually reversible to the metallic rose gold inside – two bags for the price of one!

Top Trends for Spring 2018!

Hey guys,

Sorry for the late upload today…these collages took a lot longer to make then I had anticipated lol! I wanted to give you the low down on all the trends coming up for Spring/Summer 2018! I can’t wait for the weather to get warmer so I can start sporting some of these trends. I get so anxious waiting for spring to get here because with the 5 months of cold weather we get in Canada, its so nice to finally brighten up my wardrobe again and wear some lighter layers.

Panton’s colour of the year is Ultra Violet, so expect to see a ton of purple shades in stores come spring! Also I love dressing in pastels – especially pink – when the weather warms up so Im loving that this is still a trend for 2018.

Trench coats are said to be HUGE this year. I’ve had my eye on the trench above for about a year now…maybe this a sign I need to buy it already haha! Also, I’m excited to try out the slip dress trend. Not sure if I can pull it off, but we will soon find out!

I’m loving the feminine patters this year with all the florals and polkadots, these two are going to be on major repeat for me come spring!

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!
