Dressing the bump has both been a fun yet challenging experience. Early on in my pregnancy, I was able to get away with repurposing my own closet, finding interesting ways to wear oversized clothing that I already own or secretly leaving buttons and zippers undone. Then as the pregnancy progressed, it’s absolutely necessary to shop for a few key maternity clothing items or the least bring in some new pieces that can accommodate the growing belly.
K, I’m SO stoked about this post because I’m finally sharing the gender of our little mini!!! Are you guys ready?! Drum roll….WE’RE HAVING A BOY!!! Majority of you guessed girl…
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.
