Bailey Nelson

Who ever said premium glasses had to cost a fortune?! The wonderful people at Bailey Nelson aspire to bring everyone the same quality glasses and sunglasses as all the luxury brands at a fraction of the cost, and I appreciate that! They started in Australia in 2012, and they now have locations all across Australia, New Zealand and the UK, and a total of 6 stores across Canada, including Vancouver, Ottawa, and Toronto. Breaking away from the same supply chain that other designers use and thus saving you all the mark-ups, Bailey Nelson manufactures their glasses using quality materials and craftsmanship. They’re striving to change the glasses industry and…

Twirl

Twirl. That’s all I want to do when I wear this top! If you read my last style post, you would already know that I’m obsessed with frilly white tops, so this top from SheIn was the perfect addition to my ever-growing collection! I came across it while shopping online for more summer shirts, and I just had to have it (especially since it’s such a great price)! It makes quite the statement on its own, with its large, accentuated ruffles, that not much else is really needed. I’ve styled with a pair of treggings (which is not a made up word, btw) and lace-up high heels,…

No Frills

The name of this blog post is a bit of a misnomer because it’s actually about frills – a lot of them! As you may have noticed if you follow me on Instagram, I have a bit of an obsession with frilly tops (as seen here and here), and in particular, white frilly tops (more to come in my next style post). I also love off-the-shoulder tops, so this little number from Club Monaco is exactly my style. Speaking of Club Monaco, if you live in Toronto, have you had a chance to check out the Club Monaco Market at the Bloor St. W. location…

On the Fringe

There’s just something about warm, sunny weather and white jeans that go hand in hand! Despite having to be so extremely careful when wearing them, white jeans are one of my favourite things to put on in the spring and summer. I think they look so lovely on women. Fun fact: the first time my parents met, it was at a party. My mother was wearing white jeans and it was one of the things that caught my father’s eye and caused him to approach her. I guess it was love at first white (my parents will probably kill me for sharing this story!) But anyway, on to…

Bench – Comfy, Casual

When it comes to fashion, you shouldn’t have to compromise comfort for style. As much as I love elevating a look with a pair of heels, I basically live in flats and runners on the weekend, and outside of the office, my style is, for the most part, quite minimal and relaxed. So, when I find clothes that are comfortable, stylish, and easy to throw on, I will put them on serious rotation! I recently had the opportunity to shop the Bench collection and it was such a revelation! Prior to then, I really only associated Bench with workout clothes, since all I seemed to see people in was their…

Shopping the GEOX Nebula Collection

My quest for the perfect suede running shoe is finally over! A couple weeks ago, I was invited to shop the new GEOX Nebula collection*, where I scored this pair of grey runners. I had been looking for suede running shoes for a while, but could never manage to find the right pair. So when the opportunity arose to shop GEOX, I was super excited! When it comes to runners, I tend to stick to the usual colours: white and black. So this time, I thought I’d go in a different direction and add some colour to my running shoe collection. GEOX Nebulas come in lots of colours and…

Feeling Festive

I follow a lot of other fashion bloggers for inspiration; and so, I couldn’t help but notice the absolute ONSLAUGHT of photos from Coachella on my Instagram feed for the past couple of weeks from high profile international bloggers and even some from Canada who made the trip to Indio, California. They all look so well put together in their free-flowing, boho chic festival attire, without even a single hair out of place (unless it was intentionally done that way to look effortless), all while posing in front of the iconic Coachella Ferris wheel. Case in point: But real talk: how many bloggers…

Think Pink

Let’s play a little game – it’s called the “Would you rather game”. Would you rather: have a short, but really cold winter OR a mild, but really long winter (or in our case, a winter that lingers into the spring)?! At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I’m essentially complaining about the current weather in Toronto yet again! When my Instagram hubby and I shot this look, it was below zero, and we had to keep on running back inside First Canadian Place every 10 minutes in order to warm our hands and feet up! I purchased…

Crazy for Culottes

I have a little confession to make… workwear is the part of my wardrobe that I basically neglect. I would go to the office in pyjamas, if I could. I like to be super comfy when I’m working (I even sit cross-legged on my chair); and although it’s attractive to see a woman in a power suit, let’s face it, business attire is uncomfortable. If someone can find me a blazer that doesn’t feel restrictive when I type, please let me know! I am normally very minimalist in my dressing, but I am even more so when dressing for the office. Generally, little thought goes into what I wear…

Toronto Fashion Week

So, it’s been a little while since my last blog post, but for good reason. Last week, in addition to what’s normally on my plate, I was juggling going to work full-time and attending Toronto Fashion Week (TFW)! Thankfully, I was able to keep up with my posts on Instagram, if you’ve been following along. But I wanted to ensure to devote an entire blog post to my TFW adventures when I had the opportunity! This one is going to be a long one, so get cozy before you start reading this 🙂 Although it was only my second time attending fashion week, this time around,…
