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:

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.

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!

Friday Favourites!

Friday Favourites!

The first week back to work after the holidays is the worst, am  I right?

Here are 5 things that I’m loving this week:

1- This is one of my favourite articles about fashion that I’ve read in a long time. I agree with everything she says!

2- This is my new favourite blush, and it’s under $10. So far, I’ve only found it at The Real Canadian Superstore in Ottawa. FYI : the all-time best, most flattering colour is Luminoso. You’ll love it, trust me!

3- I bought this sweater in a bunch of different colours, because it’s on sale for $23 at Nordstrom (different colours than what you see online). I bought it one size bigger than I need and it’s the coziest sweater I own!

4- The most Instagrammed beauty products of 2015 (I’ve only tried 4 of them, need to catch up!)

5- My new year’s resolution is to drink more water, so I carry this around with me everywhere I go! it’s sold out, but I love this one too!

Happy weekend!
