I wanted to give props to all my favourite Canadian companies geared towards women, its so important to shop local and support small business this time of year because you know you are supporting families and their dreams in doing so!

1970’s Inspired Fall Look

I could easily say fall fashion is my absolute favourite, not only for the comfort, textures and rich colours but for the layering! When I was putting this look together I was inspired by the era of hippies and flare jeans, with an modernized, edgy & boho vibe! I am such a huge fan of ponchos (especially ones that can double as scarves) and styling this one in particular with an edgier criss cross t shirt from Tobi and flare jeans worked flawlessly! Each piece really complimented each other and it is an outfit that would look good and compliment any body type!

I have linked all of my outfit details below and hope this look inspires any of you to have fun with your fashion<3

Athleisure

Athleisure, i.e. my #momuniform haha! Lets face it, whether you are a mom, a working women or both, everyone needs comfy, fashionable alternatives! Below I have shared my favourite pieces and how to style them for an

Jackets

Im a huge fan of bomber jackets recently, not only can they be worn with workout leggings but they can also be dressed up with jeans and a cute lace top! I tend to lean towards neutral shades when it comes to jackets as it will give you a broader ranger of uses and more ways to pair with different outfits! Ive also added my favourite floral bomber below to show another way to style these different bombers!

Pants

I love me a great patterned pant! That being said you want to make sure that if you are going to style a patterned or printed pant you want to stay neutral on the rest of your wardrobe so it is not too overwhelming! On the reverse if you are wearing a solid colour pant, a floral or patterned bomber would be the way to go!

Shoes

When it comes to shoes you can really do no wrong! Go for comfort but have fun with the pattern and print whether its rose gold, tropical print or metallic it will make your outfit pop!

Easter Stripes with a Pop Of Colour

With Good Friday tomorrow it is time to celebrate Easter with good food and family! With Easter usually comes dinners, brunches and an excuse to get a little dressed up! I have teamed up with Miss Boss to bring you a beautiful option for an Easter outfit this weekend!

Monochromic stripes are such a great option, in my opinion, for any outing casual or dressy and this BB Dakota Jaxson Striped Dress is utter perfection. A thick and stretchy material, it is perfect for a comfy laid back option with sneakers or a dressier look like this one that we have put together! (I also love that its not tight especially if you are conscious of your mid section like this mama!!) It allows you an easy to pair base with any other piece in your wardrobe, patterned (floral would be adorable too) or colour! (It snowed the day we took these photos so I added some leggings and boots however a cute pair of ankle booties without the leggings would be a great option too if the weather is warmer where you are!). Also keep in mind I am 5’10 so the dress came a bit high on me but for anyone smaller it would be a great fit without the need to wear anything underneath!

Now lets talk accessories! This coral Matt and Nat Abiko clutch is the perfect pop of pink for this Easter weekend! I love the clutch handle and the three pockets that allow you to fit everything you need! I paired this outfit with knee high boots and a sparkly necklace and earrings to dress it up a bit (all accessories are linked below), you could also get away with a pop of colour with your accessories too. See what I mean, the options are endless!

Lastly lets talk about this bomber. I mean what can you say, this BB Dakota Troy Jacket is perfection! I loved the cropped length, perfect to be paired with a dress like this one or a t-shirt and jeans! I also love the beautiful silver detailed zipper and drawstring bottom. This is a jacket that will transition flawlessly from spring to summer to fall and the neutral black colouring will compliment any outfit! Definitely a wardrobe staple for sure!

Ive posted the remaining details of my outfit below, I hope you all have a wonderful Easter filled weekend with yummy food and much love!

Off The Shoulder Trend Spring 2017

Happy Saturday Loves!!

It is April 1st today which means it is officially spring!! I love what spring brings, pastel colours, fresh tulips, no snow lol and ofcourse spring fashion!! Another spring 2017 trend I am absolutely obsessing over, off the shoulder anything! Shoulders are so beautiful, classy and yet fun without being too revealing! I also love that this trend can be worn dressy, casual, to a weddings or an afternoon patio date!

There are so many retailers coming out with dresses and tops in this style but with so much variations, embroidered, eyelet, tassels and every colour imaginable including one of my favs, chambray!!

Ive rounded up my favourite tops and dresses

Hope you enjoy!!
