Valentine’s Day Gift Guide For Him

If the man in your life is as hard to buy for as mine, I gotcha! I wanted to put together some fun gift ideas for the guys, nothing crazy or too expensive but something to show them that we care!

Clayton and I have already established that our Valentines Day will be staying in our pjs all day, watching one of the netflix series and having breakfast for dinner! This is my kind of valentines day but if your man is taking you out for a romantic time it might be nice to surprise him with a little something something, and by something i mean a gift;)

I hope this helps give you gals some ideas for your man and makes the process a bit easier!

Hope you enjoy! xo

My Favourite New Trends

I think it is safe to say this is my favourite fashion post to date!!!!!

As I continue to grow out my hair I have been looking for other alternatives to styling my pixie as showering and styling every single morning is no good! (super jealous of those of you who can rock a ponytail or messy bun!!) so I decided to try my luck at hats and the verdict is… I lovvve them!! This brown one I picked up in Calgary at Chapel’s Hats and the brand is Christy’s. I have linked some similar hats below including one for $12!!! I was really hesitant at first because of the length of my hair. Most women I see wearing this style have beautiful long hair braided to one side or done in curls and now we know a little pixie can be just as cute!

Another trend I am loving right now is Faux Fur Accessories. I picked up this scarf on recommendation from another Edmonton based blogger on instagram and I am in love with it! It is so soft and the multi colours allow so many different outfit pairings and it is currently 60% off!!! Under $20!! (link here). Faux fur is a great way to spice up any outfit especially in the fall and winter. Other faux fur accessories that could be incorporated into any outfit include a faux fur vest, mittens or toque and these require minimal investment and look so fab! I have added some additional faux fur accessories and their links below! I have also linked the remainder of my outfit details below!

I hope you guys enjoy!

Christmas Host Attire


We are hosting Christmas this year for the first time in our new home and I could not be more excited!!!! This Wildfox t shirt from Miss Boss is perfection for the occasion and I couldn’t help dressing it up! I also had to indulge in the holiday festivities with my present bow earrings and bow pumps! I love adding red into my outfits especially around the holidays and doing so with some cute red pumps and bright red lipstick is a subtle  way of achieving that without being overpowering! Ive attached all of the outfit details below as well as am sharing my Christmas Morning Wife Saver Recipe from the Best of Bridge Recipe Book which was one of my moms favourite and of which I will be making for our Christmas morning!

Party Time!

I am so excited to ring in the Christmas season at Eliasz & Ella & Miss Boss’ Holiday Fete! For this very reason I wanted to dress up and celebrate! I am such a huge fan of Christmas so any excuse to get dressed up I’ll take!

Dressing for a holiday party should be all about fun! For this reason I love a great pair of sparkly shoes! I nabbed these beautiful glitter Badgley Mischka shoes online last fall after seeing them at the Bay! They will be a holiday staple for years to come and they can easily dress up any outfit! I linked some similar shoes for a quarter of the price (here)!

I love different takes on little black dresses so I fell in love with this H&M Lace dress with 3/4 sleeves, its sexy without showing all the goodies lol! You really don’t have to spend a ton of money on a dress to look and feel amazing, I have probably had this dress for 3 years now and its such a great go to! There are so many ways to spice up an older dresses without spending little to no money, new shoes, new jewelry, new lipstick! Some of my favourite places to shop for dresses is Asos, H&M & Forever 21, I have linked some favourites below!

Have a great weekend gals and I hope to see you at the party tomorrow! xo

Transitioning Summer Dresses Into Fall

As fall approaches, most women are packing up their summer clothes and bringing out the boots and sweaters especially here in Alberta as it has been much colder here recently. But before you do that think about pairing some of those cute summer dresses with leggings, a pair of ankle booties and a vest or knee high boots and an oversized cardigan! You can completely change the dynamic of the dress but adding some of these fab fall accessories! This will allow you to stretch your wardrobe and use the existing clothes you have in a variety of different ways!

This bright blue boho dress I picked up over the summer at forever21 for $25, the vest which has been on constant repeat I nabbed last fall from Anthropologie. I have linked some identical replicas below for a third of the cost!

Hope you enjoy and have a fab weekend!! xo
