Styling A Bodysuit

Can we please take a moment to thank the hair gods for letting my hair grow to a length that I can finally curl it!!!! Yipeee!! No more justin bieber side part (well at least not everyday now)!!!

Haha any who! My last couple fashion posts have been pretty casual so I wanted to spice things up with this gorgeous bodysuit from Express Clothing. I am loving the criss-cross front that can be dressed up or dressed down and also adds a little sexiness..Oooo!!! Bodysuits have really come along way and are such a great alternative to a top.

I am a huge fan of body suits especially when it comes to work because tucking a shirt in all the time is super annoying and having the lines from your shirt show through your pants because its not perfectly flat and tucked, no thank you! Body suits are also very flattering and reasonably priced as well. It took me a while to find one I loved and I just recently was told that Express is carrying a whole line of bodysuits so I am sure I will be adding more to my collection! I have linked all of the outfit details below!

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!

Day to Night Transition

I wanted to start showing some more versatility with pieces, how to wear them and with what so you can get the most out of your existing wardrobe without having to go out and spend money!!

This BCBG leather jacket I got at Winners over two years ago for $80 and I have had continuous wear out of it ever since! My favourite part about this jacket is the quilting and silver detail, it makes it different and a piece that is sure to stand out as well as the functionality of it!

I wanted to put together a day to night look that is easy to transition to. The first look is a great running around or traveling outfit. With runners and a patterned scarf its an easy look to pull together that is comfortable and chic! For the second outfit I did a quick change to a faux fur scarf and heels keeping the rest of my outfit and bag the same! This would be a great look for a date night out with the hubs! These looks can easily be applied to any jacket of any colour or material! Lastly, in the summer a bright pop of colour in either a top or handbag would be super cute with this outfit!

Hope you guys enjoy! xo

Olive

Trees are changing colour, leaves are falling, pumpkin spice lattes are being drank, and my favourite colour has come back into my life! It is definitely fall here in Edmonton and I am doing a happy dance! This time of year is by far one of my favourites!

It is no secret one of my go to, all time favourite colours is Olive. Im obsessed! It literally can be paired with any shade and gives it a subtle pop of colour without being overwhelming or overpowering. One of my favourite ways to wear this colour is with accessories until I found this midi skirt for $18! I decided to pair this outfit with nude accents to make sure I really let the Olive shine, and yes maybe I went overboard on the Olive but I love it!

Midi skirts and dresses are huge this fall and I am loving the appropriate length for work and also loving the fact that I can pair them with an oversized sweater and boots for a casual look!

Hope you enjoy! xo

Tuesday Trends – Trapeze

No I am not referring to a circus act! A trapeze tee or dress is a high low cut on a t shirt/dress style top that has a loose/flowy bottom! To put it lightly I am obsessed with these tees!  These shirts can be worn with leggings or a side tucked in on a great pair of ripped denim. Below I have shared my favourites!

Enjoy!xo

Tuesday Trends – Burgundy

Burgundy is huge for this coming fall, so I am sharing my favourite burgundy pieces that can be added to any wardrobe! This colour is so beautiful and a perfect compliment to a neutral outfit! You can even spice things up with a burgundy lipstick, or nail polish, one of my favourite colours to wear in the fall!

Express Wine Fring CrossBody Bag l Also comes in Black $30 Fringe is also huge for the upcoming fall season and the combination of this colour and style will be fab with any outfit!

LuLu Carmen Sun Diego Burgundy Floppy Hat l Also comes in Black Brown & Grey $32. Floppy hats are so chic and I love the thinker felt material that can double as keeping your noggin warm and looking on point!

Express Distress Lace Up Ankle Boots l I love love love ankle booties and in burgundy these are a must. I love that they are flat, they could be worn with shorts or a skirt in later summer and will transition into fall beautiful with jeans or leggings!

Express Oversized Windowpane Plaid Shirt Plaid is an absolute must for me in the fall and the combination of this colour and pattern are perfection. I also love the length and cut of this tunic style that can be paired flawlessly with jeans or leggings.

July Favourites

Is anyone else struggling with the fact that our summer is half over!!! Ahh!! Especially here in Canada we wait so long for the summer to come and when it gets here it is over in the blink of an eye! This month has been especially hectic for us as we await the possession of our home that we have spent the last year building. With lots of ups and downs we are one sleep away from getting the keys to our forever home. I can’t even tell you how relieved and excited I am to start this new phase in our life, something we have waited so long and worked so hard for! Any who! I wanted to round up my favourites from this past month and I look forward to sharing my moving/packing and unpacking tips as well as a preview of our house and how we are decorating!

Hope you guys enjoy! xo

By the colours and patterns of my favourites you would think its already fall however I am so in love with neutrals colour lately that for summer or fall these pieces will be flawless!

Dalmation Leaf Bracelet > This bracelet is gorgeous, the colour combination and pattern make it easy to accessorize with silver, black, grey or brown. It is a perfect transitional piece from summer to fall!

“Casual Fresh”Crystal Quartz Stone Necklace > I love this necklace! I can wear it with jeans or dress it up and it looks amazing in either light. If you are looking for a beautiful Canadian necklace that can be worn so many ways, you can stop looking!

Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick in Melted Fig > This colour is so gorgeous, it is the perfect dusty rose with a hint of purple. I will continue wearing this shade to finish out the summer and right into fall!

Express Clothing Gray Mid Rise Jean Leggings (Buy 1 Get One $29.99) I have a tough time finding jeans long enough and comfortable enough to wear, Im big into leggings  for the comfortable reason and these jeggings are so awesome. Jean leggings are the way to go, they look great but are super comfortable and stretchy!

Express Clothing Knotty Wedge Sandal in Natural (currently 30% off!) I have been looking for the perfect pair of nude shoes to wear and when I saw these on sale I couldn’t resist! The knotty details give the shoe some dimension, and they are surprisingly comfortable! I will be wearing these babies until it snows!

Matt & Nat Ohara in Cork > This bag was also featured in my May Favourites but If you follow me on instagram you know my obsession with this bag! I use it every day either as a clutch or a mini purse inside my Raylan work bag. The cork is so beautiful plus it is Canadian made and made of recycled material! Matt & Nat’s new fall line is absolutely stunning and I have my eye on a couple to add to my collection!

Essie Nail Polish in Master Plan > I am usually a gel girl but with our moving fiasco they ended up all falling off so Ive really been into painting my nails lately and when I saw this colour I knew it would become by favourite! It is the perfect combination of a taupe and grey colour, and will be yet another perfect shade to transition from summer to fall!

All Grey Everyday

Grey is such a beautiful shade and a great neutral base for any wardrobe. I couldn’t resist this BB Dakota Grady Drape Wool Coat at Miss Boss which will take me from Summer to Fall and into Spring. This jacket will be an essential piece in my wardrobe for years to come, a statement piece that flatters any wardrobe, casual or work.  It is a soft wool, light weight jacket that is just as gorgeous draped open as it is done up. I will be sharing a dressier outfit with this jacket in the coming week to show some diversity so stay tuned!

This outfit is a great casual option for travel, running around the city or an afternoon shopping date. I chose to do simple jewelry, this Eliasz & Ella Quartz Necklace is an absolute stunner and the perfect accessory for any wardrobe. I love the simplistic beauty of this piece. The Eliasz & Ella Cityscape Stainless Steel Bracelet is the perfect compliment, and it has the Edmonton Skyline on it, how cool is that!!! Ive linked the remainder of the outfit details below!

Hope you enjoy! xo
