I love living in soft and lightweight fabrics this time of the year, when the sticky humid weather finally starts to level off making it just perfect for comfortable materials such as linen and buttery soft denim. The combination is great for transitional weather as we head into ‘back to school’ season.
Every year when the cherry blossoms make an appearance, I beat myself up for NOT making the trek to High Park in Toronto for some beautiful snaps. The truth is, I’m just not all that into crowds nor thrilled about having to get up at 5 am for that perfect shot.
My love for basic mules continues this season and the ones I’m wearing in this post from Joe Fresh are a must have. They seem to be unavailable online, but if you make your way to the stores, hopefully you’ll be able to snatch a pair (I’ve also seen them in pink!).
Spring has finally sprung and despite the unseasonably chilly weather, I’m totally ready!
This time of the year is honestly the best time to snatch up some great sale finds. I love stocking up on Winter coats and boots that I’ve been eyeing the past few months and storing them away for next season. Often times, there are also some fabulous transitional pieces you can pick up for Spring!
A bit of Spring weather decided to make an appearance after the brutally low temperatures we’ve been experiencing and I know that it’s not going to last for long as we anticipate the extreme cold front to arrive this weekend.
Making the best of this above freezing weather, I was finally able to swap the down-filled jacket and clunky winter boots with this luxe fur cocoon pullover, wool coat, and over-the-knee boots.
Sparkle is always appropriate especially during the holidays!
Hope you all had a great Christmas! For me it was full of great food, drink, family and friends. On my last workday before the holiday break, I decided to add a bit of sparkle to my outfit. I love the subtle infusion of glitter from this Joe Fresh blouse and this pair of embellished mesh satin heel from LE CHÂTEAU. It’s always a bit tricky to strike a balance between work and play, but I think this does just the trick.
What is your go-to outfit this winter season?
When the temperature starts to drop, all I think about are over sized knits and comfortable booties. I honestly can’t have enough of these items in my closet, and my husband can definitely attest to that! When I saw this cozy cardigan in the store front, I had to go into the store to try it on. This longline cardigan is so versatile and soft! It can be worn on a warmer day as outerwear or layered under a wool coat for some added warmth when the temps are about to drop way below zero. These over-the-knee boots were also a new addition. I was love the neutral colour and that they’re flat and super comfortable to walk in!
I’ve been a long time fan of Olivia Palermo. Those of you who binged watched “The City” back in 2008 will likely agree with my mini obsession over Olivia’s amazing style. Honestly, I’d probably wear every outfit she wore on the show nearly a decade ago, NOW. When Banana Republic announced the release of the Olivia Palermo collaboration collection, I had a major fan girl moment. The collection released in September, and guys, if I had a bottomless wallet, I’d bring EVERY single item home with me!
Red is not typically a colour I gravitate to when it comes to stocking up my everyday wardrobe. To me, perhaps coming from a Chinese upbringing, I’ve always connected red with Chinese New Year or getting married. In our culture, red is a symbol of good luck and celebration, and though I don’t consider myself a ‘traditional’ Chinese girl, I’ve always reserved this very vibrant and happy colour only for special occasions (remember that red Chinese dress from my wedding?!).
When LE CHATEAU handpicked this red cashmere-like belted trench coat for me, I was a little intimidated by it. I would have normally picked a safer color, such as the black or camel version but super glad it encouraged me to push my own boundaries by sporting it with a fun twist on business casual.
I find it always a challenged to dress appropriately during Fall when the weather hasn’t quite transitioned yet. I’ve stocked my closet up with cozy knits, wool pants, thigh high boots in preparation for the colder weather but looks like Fall just isn’t quite ready to hang around for good yet! But don’t get me wrong, no complaints here!
