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:

Sorry I haven’t been posting more often, I’m trying to come up with new ideas for you guys! If you want me to write about anything specific, leave me a note in the comments below!

These are a few things I’ve picked up recently. So many things are on SUPER SALE, which I why I had to share it it you!

1- Joe Fresh Haul
OMG I love the sales at Joe at the end of each season. I’ve picked up so many great pieces at ridiculously low prices. I encourage you to check out your local store (or shop online, but beware, everything on clearance is final sale) and look through the sale racks, you’re sure to find some awesome stuff. I picked up the SOFTEST boyfriend plaid shirt (go one size up), the coziest turtleneck (I also sized up on this one) and the cutest après-ski shirt (should have sized up!). I also got a pair of black booties for $29, ridiculous.

2- Drugstore Haul
I am so happy that brands like L’Oreal and Maybelline are making products that can compete with high-end brands. I picked up a few essentials, including the new BB Cushion Foundation from L’Oreal, which, so far, is a great option when I don’t want or need full coverage. This NYX lip primer has been amazing at preventing my lipstick from bleeding (anyone else have this problem?) and I picked up a darker colour of my favourite concealer which I will use to contour!

 

3-Winners Finds
I have some fun trips planned to warmer destinations, so I was very happy to see that Winners is stocked with great swimwear right now (they also got big shipments of Nike golf clothes, if anyone is interested!). I picked up this great one-piece from BCBG for under $40. Is it just me or are one-pieces making a huge comeback? I’m not complaining!

4- The perfect chambray shirt?
I’ve seen this top on so many people now and I NEED ONE IN MY LIFE. But I really want to find the perfect one, that’s the right length and super soft, and not too wrinkly….Is that too much to ask? These are my top 3 contenders right now, from Old Navy, J.Crew and Nordstrom.

Happy shopping!

What I’m wearing these days!

What I’m wearing these days!

Even with a closet full of clothes, I always find myself choosing the same few pieces over and over. This is what I’m wearing, and loving, these days.

1- Tomgirl Jeans
I can’t tell you how long I’ve been looking for the right pair of boyfriend jeans. These are my favourite so far, they fit just right and are perfect for lounging around the house.

2- Aztec Poncho
I love, love, love this overpiece. It’s the perfect length, it’s more interesting than your basic cardigan and it’s ON SALE!

3- Cabin Socks
I have a few pairs of these from Roots, but they are a bit too big for me. I love this version from Garage, and I love the shorter style, so I bought a bunch of pairs and it’s all I wear!

4- Knit Jegging
I can’t say enough good things about this pair of pants. I’ve had mine for  3 years and they are still as black as the day I bought them. I actually have two pairs, and I cut a hole in the knees on one pair, and I pretty much wear them every day. They keep their shape and have the perfect amount of stretch. I HIGHLY recommend these pants.

5- Pocket Tees
I have several different styles of tees that I alternate through. Anything with rayon in it is my favourite type, they feel really nice and look expensive, even though they are definitely not! The downside is that you have to hand wash them or they will shrink, but they are still the best tees I have found so far.

Happy New Year! See you in 2016!

Fall Shopping Wish List

Fall Shopping Wish List

After a few weeks to colder weather under my belt, I’m starting to realize what’s missing in my wardrobe. These are a few things I’m looking to purchase in the near future:

1- Ankle Boots
There used to be a time when I was always in heels. But then I turned 30 (a few years ago…) and I am all over flat or low-heeled footwear. But I still want to look fashionable, so I think these will be a great addition!

2- Fur-trimmed wool coat
I just took my winter coats out of storage, and my wool coat has seen better days. It’s time to add a new one to the collection.

3- Midi-length skirt
I have some winter appropriate cropped sweaters that I want to wear over the holidays, so I’m looking for the perfect black skirt to match them with. I don’t want anything too form-fitting, but nothing too flared either. This is proving to be my hardest item to find so far. But I’ve got some good leads!

4- Driveway-shoveling boots
I don’t believe this is an actual term for footwear, but I just want a great pair of do-anything, but still keep my feet warm and look cute boots. Something to shovel snow and head to the cottage.

5- Oxfords or Loafers
you can’t go anywhere these days without seeing a girl in this type of shoe. With good reason, they are super stylish, a nod to a different era, and the perfect holiday party shoe.
