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!).
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!
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!
I love that we’re experiencing a heat wave in Toronto which means that there is absolutely no shame when it comes sporting those light pastels a few days longer. In fact, I rarely stick by colour rules when it comes to fashion. Gone are the days of no white after Labour Day and truthfully speaking, I think whites and pastels, especially paired with chunky cozy knits are so yummy during the cooler season.
I love attending weddings.
They are so full of love, laugh, and joy, and well, also gives me an excuse to dress up for the occasion! After attending four weddings over the last several weeks, I must say I’ve become a pro at dressing as a wedding guest!
First, comfort is key. I mean, let’s face it, there is much eating and dancing to be done after all! And secondly, dressing appropriately for the venue and type of ceremony is also just as important. If you’re attending a backyard garden wedding, you may not want to show up in super high stilettos because I guarantee you’ll have a hard time navigating across the lawn!
I’m a sucker for a great floral dress.
When I come across one that can double up for work and play, I definite won’t be passing it up. I was a little skeptical of the fit of this LE CHATEAU floral print wrap dress as first, as I thought the cut may be on the conservative side. But after putting it on, I was sold.
Can you believe I’ve never stepped foot onto this location before? For those of you who live in Toronto, Sugar Beach has become a local favourite due to the cute pink umbrellas that stand tall against the city waterfront. Perhaps it was my (almost) all pink outfit that inspired me to visit Sugar Beach on this particular afternoon for an impromptu photo shoot.
As the snow continues to come down today, it’s pretty clear that I was a bit premature celebrating what I thought was the arrival of Spring! Rest assure, soon enough the warmer weather will make its way, and that’s why it’s never too early to start adding new Springtime pieces to the closet!
