With Spring just around the corner, I partnered with Joe Fresh to bring their “Free Your Fresh” Campaign to life by trying something fun and new to welcome this new season. I gathered up a couple of my besties and spent the morning sharpening our cake decorating skills at Velvet Lane Cakes located in Toronto.
This has ought to be my favourite time of the year. When the trees are ready to shed its coat and the leaves are dressed with beautiful shades of gold.
While the trees are ridding its coat, I on the other hand is shopping for a new one! As we transition from the slightly cooler weather to the deep chill of winter, it’s important to add appropriate outerwear and accessories to keep warm. This in between weather can be quite unpredictable in Toronto, its cold enough to ditch the trench coat but not yet time to bring out the down filled parkas.
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!
