Soft Pink

Smart Set Blazer and Tassel Necklace, H&M Skirt, Joe Fresh Silk Blouse, Rebecca Minkoff MAB Tote, Joan & David Booties, Michael Kors Darci Watch, Dolce & Gabbana Sunnies

I had my eye on this Joe Fresh blouse for a while - the pastely pink color is perfect, and I was lacking basic blouses from my closet. If you don't know this already, Joe Fresh often has killer sales on their website, and I snagged this beauty for $11. In fact, they also have amazing sales in store - I saw some lovely silk blouses at my local Joe Fresh for $5! None in my size sadly, but I did find two pairs of pants for $5. Their new Spring lineup is looking amazing - I'm obsessed with this skirt, and this striped dress. How sleek is that polo collar?

Zara Shirt (still available), Banana Republic Sweater, Old Navy Coated Skinnies, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Aldo Boots, Dolce & Gabbana Sunnies (found at Winners for a cool $40), Michael Kors Watch, H&M Bracelet, BCBGeneration Bangle, 

Happy Monday friends! How was your weekend? I spent mine visiting my home town for my friend's birthday and had a blast. But this also means that not much rest was had (partially because of the hockey game - Yay Canada!) and this Monday is particularly difficult. Let's just leave it at that because my brain feels like it's melting ;)

Inspired by... Downton Abbey

Inspired by Downton Abbey

Like many others before me, I've fallen for Downton Abbey. After watching all 4 seasons in 3 weeks, it's safe to say I'm obsessed. Watching the show, I couldn't help but be amazed at the detailing in all the costumes. I've never been one to love vintage wear, but Downton Abbey seriously make the 20s fashion look amazing. Searching for inspiration for this collage, I found a few designers that were inspired by the 20s - Parker, for example, has a lot of flapper-like dresses. And Eugenia Kim's hats that look like they are straight from the 20s. My favorite pieces are the jewels though. J Crew has a few 20s style jewels that have my heart - art deco necklace, you will be mine!

Are you a fan of Downton Abbey? What's your opinion on 20s fashion? Aye or nay?

Color Theory

Old Navy Sweater, Madewell Skirt, Joan & David Boots, Rebecca Minkoff MAB Bag, Banana Republic and Smart Set Bracelets, H&M Necklace, Michael Kors Darci Watch, Asos Sunnies

Getting through this last stretch of winter, I've been trying to add some color to my looks in order to prepare for Spring. Or you know, just to generally pretend it isn't winter. This bright lime green sweater is such a fun shade! And I love that the knit is light enough to be a transition piece into Spring.

Tartan and Dots

Old Navy Coat, Joe Fresh Blouse, J Brand Denim, Smart Set Scarf, Aldo Pumps, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, Banana Republic Factory Bracelet, Gorjana Ring, House of Harlow Sunnies

Happy Monday! I realized this morning that Roll Up The Rim is BACK at Tim Horton's. Yay! I don't love Tim Horton's that much, but Roll Up the Rim is the shit! And this year, there's two places on your cup to roll up! I know I'm a little over-excited about this, but it's Monday morning, I'll take any excitement I can get.

This Smart Set tartan scarf has served me so well this fall/winter. I've worn it a ton, and I've been loving pairing it up with other prints like in today's post. I'll almost be sad to say goodbye to it when the weather warms up. Notice that I said almost, because I won't be sorry at all when all this snow is gone! We got another 30 cm of snow this weekend and there's nowhere to put it!

This is a very Canadian post - Tim Hortons, snow, centimeters! 'Tis who I am, my friends!

P.S. A quick thanks to Kate who keeps rocking it in the picture department!

Feeling Blue

Asos Sunnies (still available here), Gap Denim, Banana Republic Cardigan, Joe Fresh Lace Peplum, J Crew Dean Ankle Boots, Rebecca Minkoff MAB Tote Bag, Michael Kors Darci Watch, Simmons Necklace

Well eff is it ever frustrating uploading pictures to Blogger and having them look like crap. According to Kate, saving and uploading pictures as .png files instead of .jpg helps a little so I'll give that a go next time I edit pictures. For now, sorry about the quality!

I've documented my obsession with mirrored lens sunglasses on my Instagram recently, but my obsession really started with the Asos beauties I'm wearing in today's post. I love how blue they are reflecting! I now own a couple more Joe Fresh mirrored lens sunnies (one purchase totally inspired by this post), but these red Ray-Bans have stolen my heart. I get the feeling that more colored lens sunglasses will make their way into my mini-collection!

Happy hump-day!

A Touch of Leopard

BB Dakota Blazer, Old Navy Dress, Vintage Blouse, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Ivanka Trump Kayden Pumps. Bauble Bar Earrings, Michael Kors Watch, House of Harlow Sunnies

Truthfully, it's definitely not warm enough to not wear tights around here. But when a mild day announced itself, I couldn't resist taking these pictures without them (which I'm slightly regretting since my legs are so pale!). To hell with tights!

Hope your weekend was good! Mine was pretty relaxed, but full! The boyfriend and I visited his dad who lives about an hour away from where we live. He lives in the country and I always find it soothing to get a breath of fresh air! On Sunday, I attended a screenwriting workshop, in line with my New Year's resolution or being more involved in the film community. When I wasn't doing those two things, I was in my Roots sweatpants, and it was heavenly.

I did get a chance to quickly stop by Target to check out new Peter Pilotto for Target collection. I literally had about 15 minutes to look at everything before I had to be at my workshop and quickly tried on the floral print red shift dress, and the asymmetrical skirt, but the dress was the only winner. I need to take a longer look at the pieces next time I'm in there! I'm pretty sure my local store didn't have the full collection, so I'll make sure to check the Target in my hometown next time I'm there (and I'll be sure to check for your skirt Melanie!)

Hope you all had a good weekend! Did anyone else pick up some Peter Pilotto for Target pieces?

Hello friends! One more day, and it's Friday! This week has gone so fast, but every day has been dragging - so weird!  Sidenote - how annoying is static? It's everywhere lately, and it's driving me crazy!

If you get a chance, please go read my feature over on the Style Up Blog! Big thanks to the Style Up peeps for featuring me - I feel a little bit like a celebrity!

Have a great weekend!

Dreaming of Spring/Summer

I recently acquired these beautiful Sperrys from StyleNV after winning Kate's giveaway and can't stop staring at them and wearing them in the house. They are the Audrey style in quilted black leather and they simply could not be anymore perfect. I cannot wait for the day where the weather gets warmer and I can finally wear them with a striped tee and boyfriend jeans! With its gorgeous leather and tan/gold leather laces, I can tell they are going to be a Spring/Summer staple in my wardrobe. Are you also buying items in anticipation for Spring/Summer? I can't seem to stop with the weather inappropriate purchases!

Bag Love

H&M Sweater, Joe Fresh Blouse, DL1961 Denim, Marc Fisher Booties, Rebecca Minkoff MAB Tote, Forever 21 Sunnies, Michael Kors Darci Watch, Smart Set Necklace

Say hello to my little friend - my new black bag that is! I had been looking for a massive black bag for a while and this beauty is perfect! It carries everything I need for work - including a change of shoes! 

I spend my weekend catching up with a friend who lives out of town - we went skating, had some dessert and coffee and did a bit of shopping. All this was paired with very tolerable winter weather! I had a blast! How was your weekend?
