100% More Floral


When life gets a little too hectic and you have zero time to blog, you go on vacation!

I wish I could regale you with stories of wild pool parties, exotic locations and a killer tan but since I already live in on of Canada’s favourite vacation locales I spent a week off just enjoying my town and completely winding down.

It was perfection.


Day 1 – I already look less stressed, and 100% more floral.


Another new addition to my look – a Summer update for my hair! I decided for a more pink colour and blunt bangs. Pleased as (pink) punch!

Outfit Details:

Peachy Ribbed tank – Old Navy

Floral Short Kimono – Forever 21+

Denim Capris – Torrid

Blue vegan Flats   – Modcloth

Sunglasses – vintage & broke about 25 minutes later….

The Pink Lady

Since our teen years haven’t we all wanted to be part of The Pink Ladies and wear the coveted satin jacket?


I’m not going to even dig into my love of Rizzo and pencil skits right now but I did find the perfect satin bomber for myself recently from Charlotte Russe!


I fell in love with this jacket after having seen much more expensive versions all over lately. I wasn’t ready to commit a lot of funds for this possibly fleeting fashion but this one is available in standard and plus sizes from Charlotte Russe and currently on sale for under $25!!

The Boohoo Coated denim pants from ASOS Curve were another great deal for $30 but there are only a few pairs left now and they are going for $15! Rush to ASOS for this steal but I would suggest sizing up as they were tighter than I expected.


I’m loving the sunny Spring weather and recently got the pink redone in my hair which always makes me feel wonderful.


Gorgeous watercolour floral.

Spring Flowers


I’ve been ready for Spring sunshine for weeks now! It’s been making random appearances through my office window.


I honestly can’t remember the last time I went barefoot as opposed to warm socks and Uggs, even indoors! I’m definitely ready to bring out my Spring wardrobe now though.


I picked this hippie blouse up from the sale rack at H&M because all the detailing was too amazing to pass up! The high collar, the eyelet and the sheer back with large keyhole!!!


FYI, trying to capture a photo from behind, is the worst.

The jeans were an amazing find from Charlotte Russe which I featured on a previous Shopping Cart post. I paid $12.50 for these beauties!!


I already know these will end up being well worn throughout the Spring and Summer this year!


What are you most excited to put on this Spring?

Pretty in Pink

I’m back!

It was a much longer than anticipated return to OOTD posts but my work trip was intense & then I got insanely sick. But I’m back! And so is SPRING!!!!


I was so happy to get in and see my stylist for an update of my colour. We had a bit of fun with a messy/curly style while I was there too.


Today I’m rockin this adorable, super short Forever 21+ collared dress. I tried it previously with leggings and jeggings but what it was really waiting for was Spring weather and tights!


We Love Colors are everything to me in the Spring and Fall. I have so many colours and honestly always think I need more. This particular shade is Orchid Pink. The adorable saddle shoes were a total steal from ModCloth.


This is my ‘Hi, I’m feeling cute’ look.

Out of This World


Oh hello there!

Busy week for me and I’ll be honest, I haven’t gotten out of the house much! Working from home offers me so many amazing advantages but it does sometimes result in unwashed hair and yoga pants. I try to avoid that cliche as much as possible by picking out outfits I love, doing my hair and makeup…even when I do only have a video conference that day.

I’m loving my grape elbow patch dress for workdays. I can wear leggings or tights with it and still feel comfy and cozy while looking pretty.


I purchased the dress online from the super cute In Pursuit – a mobile boutique based out of Saint John, New Brunswick that I loved shopping out during my time out east. It’s actually set up in a big pink truck and sets up location all over the city. It’s adorable and you need to see it, but also they have an online store so I can keep shopping!



Seriously, I love this dress! I matched it with my We Love Colors splash tights! We Love Colors is my favourite place to purchase coloured tights. They have every colour you can dream of and even ones you didn’t even think of yet!

Wild At Heart – Valentine’s Day


So the big romantic day has arrived, Valentine’s Day 2017!

My sweetie has been under the weather so we will have a low key celebration but he definitely didn’t miss the opportunity to still spoil me with chocolates and flowers (such a traditionalist)!


Of course I didn’t want to miss out on the special Valentine’s Day outfit either. I thought about a pink dress but since we won’t be going out on the town this week I chose something a little more Wild At Heart.


My Torrid sequin heart sweater was a perfect choice for the day (and pretty much all days if I’m being honest) and it’s so darn cute! I love the wide neck and grey is perfect for me these days. I love sequins but I typically shy away from them in clothes because they fall off quickly and all of a sudden it looks sloppy and you spent too much. This sweater is holding up though! I purchased this when it was first released in November and throw it in the washer AND dryer… not a single sequin has jumped ship!


I paired the sweater up with my new Junarose leather looking leggings from ASOS.


The front of the leggings are leather looking with a stretchy back. I love them and already know they will be a frequent for nights out. Kind of love them with the red booties that I scored from the now defunct shoeme. It was my go-to store for Canadian online shoe shopping so if any of you have great links for shoes let me know in the comments!!!!

And of course I needed to update my nails with a new colour and Jamberry. I’m wearing Grey Matter from X Factor (Sephora) with Jamberry Gray & Silver Stripe wrap.


So tell me about your plans (and shoes) this week! Was happening in your world?

Cowl be there

You should probably get used to me sharing my love of eShakti here as my love knows no bounds. Consider downloading the app and signing up for all the amazing discounts because when you check out all they have to offer you are going to start your own affair with them! During their Boxing Day sale I snagged myself a seriously heavy shopping cart with even heavier discounts.

There is a new line of products featuring heavy cotton knits, asymmetrical patterns and some fabulous cowl necks!

Feeling like I might be cold forever in this grey winter, I snagged a bunch of these heavy knits thinking they would keep me fashionable while warm.

I bought the Cowl Neck Top in both black and navy. It is so easy to dress up or just get cozy in. I often pair it with legging for working from home but love it with jeans when heading out.



I paired the black top with my favourite Forever21+ high waisted jeggings and a pair of boots I picked up from their clearance section for under $20. With knee-high socks from Urban Outfitters, presto, perfect outfit for shopping with my GirlGang!

Did I mention this top has pockets?!


It’s also perfect with leggings due to it’s almost tunic length. Here I’ve paired it with my tattoo leggings from Torrid to channel my inner rockstar.


These awesome fake suede red booties were purchased from the outlet!


Have you tried eShakti? What did you get and how was your experience? Did you know they do custom fits and sizes as well?!
