Classic!

Hey guys! Hope you had a good start to you week! This one is a crazy busy one for me as I am heading home to Toronto Wednesday night to celebrate one of my best friends weddings! So excited to be going home but getting prepared for departure is an entire other story. Between packing and getting someone to watch our dog and all the other things that follow it is a crazy stressful couple of days before hand on top of the fact that I am working every single day. Anyways, I've been wanting to share this date night look with you for a while now! Black and white is always a classic go to for me! It's always a sharp combination...this look in particular had a little bit of and Audrey feel to it too! I'm hoping I'll get a couple more posts ready so that I can still share with you guys while I'm out of town! Hope you like it! Enjoy!

Transitional Shift!

Hey guys!! Happy Friday! Finally, the end of the week is here! I, along with every other blogger are sharing our transition into fall tips! It's such an easy time to switch because it's early in the fall season and the days are still pretty warm so you can still wear summer pieces while simply changing some accessories and your shoes into some cute boots and you're good to go! This dress is one of my favorite fall transition pieces...as soon as I saw it all I could think was that it's the ideal transitional shift dress. Perfect for the end of summer and fall! I dressed it up two different ways so you can see how easy it is, one dress and two very different looks! I hope you like it! Enjoy!

White Done Right!

Hey guys! Hope you had a great labor day long weekend!! I spent the entire time laboring and working crazy hard all weekend! I am beyond exhausted! The joys of the hospitality industry, working when everyone else is playing! Anyways, labor day always marks the official transition to fall...I woke up this morning to a chilly morning and having to put more layers on to take my dog for a walk which I absolutely love! Labor day weekend every year I always get the question from friends and family whether they are joking or not...asking me about wearing white after this weekend which always makes me laugh! So here is my opinion on white after labor day....do it!! I don't believe in rules when it comes to fashion! If you can make it work, go for it. Wearing white after the long weekend is a pretty easy transition all it requires is some proper layering. Key things to work in with your white pieces are; boots, neutral tones, scarves, jackets and sweaters! Like every other fall outfit, it's all about layering the right pieces! I put together a couple outfits below that give you a couple ideas and hopefully inspire you a little! Hope you like it! Enjoy!

Military Vest Summer Edition!

Hey guys! So this look is kinda creeping into the fall category....I want it to be fall but we're not there quite yet! This is also a look where when seeing the pictures, it wasn't as cute as I thought it was! The shoes totally ruined this for me....I would have much rather gone for a classic black pump or some strappy stiletto sandals or something. The green definitely doesn't look as good in the pictures as it did in person! Ah well, you win some you loose some. Such is the fashion game...sometimes you're totally on point and other times your outfit just isn't as fab as you think it is! Anyways, hope the military vest summer edition inspires you to bring out and start playing with some of your fall pieces! Enjoy! 
P.S. Now you all see why I wear sunnies in all my photos...I always seem to have a serious case of squinty eyes without them!

Drool Worthy Recipes: Part 2!

Hey guys! Happy weekend! Hope you all have some great plans! Not much going on here...just spending lots of time in the garden followed by lots of cooking and baking in the kitchen! That's partially why I'm writing this post...I have so many vegetables that are ready to be picked in my garden that I've been on the hunt for recipes to use them up so here are a couple that I've either made or have been holding onto waiting to use! Hope there are a couple in here that you like enough to add to your recipe collection! Enjoy!

I actually made a vegan version of this by substituting a mixture of coconut milk and unsweetened almond milk and tempeh "bacon" instead of the bacon and added some cumin! Amazing!

Blue Aztec Maxi!

Hey guys!! Hope you had a great week! I planned on doing more posts while my mum was in town visiting but it was such a busy week that just didn't happen! The entire week exhausted me! So much so I feel like I'm coming down with a bit of a flu now which I am nursing before it gets any worse! Anyways, I've been wanting to share this dress with you for a while now...definitely one of my favorites up on my online boutique right now! Maxi dresses are the perfect lazy day fashion piece. They're pretty spectacular on their own most of the time that they don't need great shoes or accessories to complete the look...it's fairly finished all on it's on! Hope you like it! Enjoy!

Wide Leg Trousers!

Hey guys! So I was killing time wandering around this second hand store called Buffalo Exchange before work a while ago and found two great pieces! An amazing pair of wide leg trousers, I have always been a sucker for wide leg trousers and these were such a great pair! I think I still need to hem them a bit as I'm super short and they're almost like pants on me when I'm not wearing pumps but still such a great fit otherwise! The other piece I found was a bright colored floral crop top, how could I say no!? I love second hand finds. It truly feels like you're striking gold! These two pieces came to a whopping $26! Amazing. This outfit was hard to shoot as these pieces move around your body because they're super loose but these photos definitely don't show that very well! I think the loose pieces work well together because there is a that little bit of skin showing from the crop top, if not I would usually pair wide leg trousers with a fitted top! Hope you like the look! Enjoy!
