I’m back!

I’m back!

I know, it’s been way too long! But I have a good reason, I’ve been busy creating a human! I am expecting a baby in November so I’ve been a bit distracted the past few months! We also just found out the gender, and I’ll share that with you soon!



But I’m excited to start blogging again, I have so much to talk about!

I’m leaving you with advice for the weekend: SHOP THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE! It’s their biggest sale of the year, where the new fall arrivals go on sale until August 8th, and then go back to regular price. So none of that picked through summer stuff, these are the new, must-have pieces! You can shop online or visit their amazing store in Ottawa. Beware, things sell out fast!

Here are a few of my favourite items from the sale:

New stores and shopping news!

New stores and shopping news!

Happy Monday!

I can’t think of a better way to kick off the week, than to share some fun news in the world of shopping! So here goes.

1- Last week, I checked out the new Saks Off 5th Outlet store at Tanger Outlets in Ottawa. It’s worth the drive. It’s a beautiful big store, filled with incredible brands. The shoe section is to die for, and they have the cutest kids area too. Want even better news? They are opening a second store in the Rideau Centre this fall! GAME.CHANGER.

2- I just heard that H&M will finally offer online shopping to Canada. About time right!

3- H&M is also opening the city’s largest store in the Rideau Centre this summer!

4-Zara is expanding in the Rideau Centre to include their popular and so amazing home line. This is such great news!

5- This is old news, but if you haven’t heard, Target offers shipping to Canada. So it’s easier to accept that we no longer have stores nearby.

That’s it for now!

Have a great week!

Which Spring trends will you embrace this year?

Which Spring trends will you embrace this year?

I know, I know, there’s a giant snow storm outside. But I don’t care, I am SOOOOO ready for Spring.

I took a look at my post on Spring trends from last year, and I definitely wore and loved all the trends I chatted about. Let’s see if the same is true for this year!

Here are the 2016 trends I’m excited about and my top picks for each.


1- Off the Shoulder Tops
This is my favourite trend by far. Nothing wrong with showing off a little collarbone (don’t forget to highlight it so it pops even more!) and with everyone cutting their hair into lobs (long bobs), this trend is perfect for shoulder grazing hair. I have a lot of favourites (I mentioned two here) and here is another one I love, and this one too!

2- Bold Stripes
I’m a stripes girl, through and through. Half my closet is stripes, so I’m excited that designers are all over this pattern. I love the nautical feel of it all, and it works well with all the monochromatic colours in my wardrobe. I like this sweater, this dress (you can buy it in Ottawa here) and also this top.

3- White Sneakers
I think I’m a little behind on this trend, and now that I’ve noticed it, it’s everywhere. Every model is rocking these shoes as their off-duty look, and I’m so happy that comfortable footwear is trendy, won’t complain about that! I love this pair, this one, and also this one.

4-Raw Hem Jeans
I love seeing how designers change up jean designs each year to keep them fresh and interesting. The raw hem is perfect to wear with espadrilles, sandals, and pretty much any summer shoe. It’s effortless, and has a fun beachy feel. I bought this pair already, and love this one, as well as this one.

5-Romantic Floral
I think my closet this year will be filled with stripes and florals, that’s it! Not only do these two patterns work well together, floral dresses are so romantic and perfect for summer dates nights. I am already dreaming of my warm-weather trips coming up, so I can wear pieces like this, this and this.

I’m calling it, Spring 2016 is gonna be the BEST!

Happy shopping.
