Favourite Looks of 2016

Ive had some time on my hands waiting for this little baby to arrive so I decided to recap my favourite looks from this past year and boy were there some great ones! (if I can say so myself!!) Even being pregnant 70% of this year I was able to find versatile, unique pieces that I could wear during and after my pregnancy! I look forward to a new year of adventure, becoming a mama and finding my own style within the category!

Hope you guys enjoy!

November Instagram Roundup

This last month has gone by faster than I could have ever imagined! With Christmas and our little mans due date just weeks away it is all starting to sink in that soon our little family of three will be four. I am a ball of excitement and nerves, I just cannot wait to meet our little man!!

We are feeling pretty prepared (I guess as prepared as you can be) but I know nothing will truly prepare us for his arrival!! The nursery is finished, the diaper bag packed and I am slowly in the process of packing Clayton and I’s overnight bag and getting the car seat in the car. It is all so surreal. I remember when I first found out I was pregnant, I kept thinking how long we had to wait to meet our little one and just wanted to fast forward to 9mths and now month 9 is here!!! ah!!!

Any who, I wanted to round up some of my November instagram outfits, this was a big hit last month and I know once baby comes my daily outfits will no longer be instagram worthy (which I cannot wait for by the way!!)

Hope you enjoy!

As mr turtle continues to grow I have been living in leggings and sweaters, comfortable and still fashionable but sometimes that can get a little boring and repetitive… enter this gorgeous scarf/kimono!! I absolutely love versatile pieces that you can wear multiple ways! This functionality extends the value and life of any piece of clothing. At only $58 this Gentle Fawn Kirin Kimono is worth every cent! Ive worn it as a scarf as well as both sides of the reversible kimono. Another added benefit of this piece is that the colour is monochrome enough it is bound to enhance any outfit!

Also if you are in Edmonton, don’t forget to drop by Miss Boss tomorrow, Eliasz & Ella will be releasing their Holiday Jewelry Exclusives from 10am-5pm!!! You can enter to win 2 gift baskets both valued at $150 as well as enjoy gift wrapping on all of your holiday purchases!

I wanted to put together a fun yet comfortable work look for the week! I havent done one in a while and considering most of us spend our days at work it only makes sense!

I love me some stripes and this top from Calvin Klein has been such a great staple in my wardrobe even prior to my baby bump and it still fits, yah!! We are closing in on 33 weeks and I am still trying to avoid purchasing a lot of maternity pieces and make use of the clothes I have! The only maternity piece in this outfit are the faux leather leggings (Ive linked non maternity vegan leather leggings here, these are on my buy list post baby!). They give the outfit some flare, they are super comfortable and versatile, easily paired with a sweater or tunic top! The blazer is also Calvin Klein (a great  Winners find) and is another key staple in a work wardrobe! I have linked my outfit details below!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Pregnancy Update – 31 Weeks

I was fortunate enough to spend this past week and weekend with my mom and aunt here in Calgary! We took advantage of the work week ahead we had in Calgary and decided some girls time was a must!

Sunday was forecasted to be a beautiful day so we decided we should head to Canmore for the day. We had brunch at the Crazy Weed in Canmore (highly recommend), I had the French Toast and it was absolutely to die for! After walking around the river and snapping some pictures, we decided an impromptu trip to Banff was in order. The Christmas Shop and Fudgery were calling my name!!! It was such a great way to spend the weekend and made the work week in ahead a little less painful;) Throughout the week we also visited some great locally owned restaurants in Calgary including Rea’s and Broken Yolk, I would highly recommend all of them! Ive shared some pictures from some of the restaurants (I was obviously on a french toast kick;))

Pregnancy wise Ive been feeling great, still making several trips to the washroom throughout the night but other than that the time is flying by! We are closing in on 32 weeks and turtle is moving more than ever! Ive noticed his movements are definitely getting stronger and he consistently has dance parties around 2am and 430am;) Ive been continuing chiropractic and massage which I swear is the reason I feel so good. I have however noticed my body shifting more in the recent weeks, it must be preping for birth… ahhh!!!! In preparation for birth I have also started drinking Red Raspberry Leaf Tea which is suppose to help the uterus and other female organs prep for labour, at this point whats the harm and if it helps, yah!! Weekly baths with lavender epson salts has also become a much needed part of my routine.

Fashion wise I am finding myself reaching more for comfy and functionality than anything. C’est Moi leggings and oversized sweaters have become a staple and are really a must for any pregnant women!! I am still trying to avoid maternity clothes as much as possible and this combo makes it so easy and doable!

I hope you guys have a great weekend and enjoy all of the halloween festivities!!

Warm Plaid

When I think of fall I can’t help but think of warm neutrals and plaid! This outfit is a great everyday wear and can easily be dressed up with a dress and tall boots. The functionality of a good cardigan and scarf can go a long way!! As an added bonus both the scarf and cardigan are very reasonably priced at $24 and $36 (linked below). I am also so in love with this cork bag, I can’t tell you how many times I get stopped to ask where it is and what it is made out of! It is Matt & Nat’s Cork Kinta bag (linked below) and its made from recycled material. Believe it or not the cork bag transitions flawlessly from day to night and the neutral colours make it a win for every outfit!!

As I close in on 30 weeks I finally decided I needed some maternity jeans! Jeans were the only thing causing me some discomfort so I headed over the Yo Mama Maternity and fell in  with these Queen Mum dark denim jeans. I wanted dark denim to that I was able to transition them from work to casual, and be able to dress them up and dress them down! They also will transition to non maternity jeans after turtle is born which makes the investment even more worth it!

I hope you guys have a great weekend! I am off to get my winter tires put on;)
