Do you remember when the sister and I headed to Florida for a mini-sister-vacay? Remember when we hit up Target like there was no tomorrow? Well these shoes and that skirt is what we walked away with, amongst many other things.
It seems that tons of fashion bloggers are huge fans of designer anything, especially when it comes to a $39.99 pair of “designer designed” shoes! I am one of those peeps. I have decided to invest in better quality items, but sometimes the trendy ones sneak in there, and the trendy ones will only be purchased with a very low price tag..only.
Therefore my usual “trendy” hit ups are places like H & M, Target, Joe Fresh, Forever21. And if I want to spend a little more and probably hold onto them for longer: Zara, Anthropologie, Free People, Club Monaco, Mendocino..along with some really cute small boutique like stores.
So this my friends is a trendy piece, and they are seriously neon and pretty darn great!

It seems like IKAT is everywhere these days. Fashion houses start it…and then eventually it weeds it’s way into home decor and everyday fashion brands. Accessories are usually the last, as they jump on the fact that there is this evident trend going on. I have always loved it, and love certain patterns of it as it can definitely can be overdone. Some of my clients really don’t like it though- they think it is too trendy.
Happy Tuesday lovelies!
Jacket: Zara – similar here | T-shirt: Zara- similar here | Jeans: Zara- similar here | Shoes: Converse | Bag: Louis Vuitton | Jewellery: Club Monaco- want this one, GLAMROCKS design, Ann Taylor (love this one), Stella & Dot
So I have had those Converse for maybe at least 5 years. When all the hype was about wearing Chucks. I barely wore them, gave them to my sister, and then I thought, because of fashionista’s on Pinterest.. I might as well give em a try again.
This was what I wore to sweet talk the Apple or Rogers guy into a) giving me a new phone b) fixing mine for free.
Fixed my phone, and didn’t need a new one, unfortunately…
Maybe next time…as my “usual” Apple guy was no where to be found (he’s the one who always gives me free stuff and fixes my computer).
Little did I know I was wearing every single thing Zara..until now. Hahaha.
Happy Thursday lovelies!
Dress: sister’s Zara | Shoes: Christian Louboutin, similar | Sunnies: Versace, similar | Bracelets: Ann Taylor – seriously want this one, Stella & Dot, Madewell, similar | Watch: Kate Spade | Rings: Nicola Chong Jewellery & GLAMROCKS design
So I did it. I bit the bullet. Pulled the trigger. Saved like there was no tomorrow…and got them. And let me tell you.
I L O V E T H E M.
Almost so much that it would seem pathetic. I mean they are shoes right. Just shoes. Shoes with a killer heel, an amazing cut out by the toes, a colour I can wear almost everyday, and that red. Oh my that perfect shade of RED.
Do they hurt your feet. Of course- when I wear them for an entire night. But so do my $20 shoes, and they hurt so much more. I love how my feet look in them, how slender my legs look. Ok maybe this is a love love relationship with my shoes – I know I’ll stop.
But so I wore them to the wedding we went to, and then this outfit to a bridal shower yesterday. With the sister’s brand spanking new Zara dress which is now sold out- yes-Great purchase!
Now onto bigger things…should I get them in black? Just kidding…I may wait a bit. But man, hot shoes can seriously make a girl feel special.
I love weddings. I love the idea of having a day to share in someones love, to watch real men cry, to watch pieces of art that are wedding gowns parade down that aisle. I love eating great food, getting to drink as much as you want, and party like there is no tomorrow. I love having an event to go to, with someone/people I love and share a great night out with almost no care in the world.
I am not the girl who has her wedding planned. Nor am I the girl who has “dreamed” about this day her whole life.
I am just the girl who loves going to beautiful events. The girl who knows pretty much exactly what she wants about everything.
I am the girl who knows exactly which song she would love to dance to with her guy- this one. Which photographer she wants – this one. Who she wants to write signs like the ones above - this one. The girl who knows most definitely that she will have peonies at her wedding- a family sentiment. Who also maybe has made an entire board of gorgeous weddings she loves, and would love to have eventually.
I know what I want…for that day…when it comes. Don’t worry, you will know…
But I have always loved weddings..and cannot wait for this weekend when the bf and I attend a seriously awesome black tie affair- may have gotten a kick-ass dress in coral, and spoiled myself with my first pair of Louboutin heels- in nude. It is gonna be a James Bond kind of night-eeeeek!
Happy Thursday lovelies!
There are days where I get magazines which I cannot wait to open up…yesterday was one of those days. The days where new J Crew/Anthropologie catalogues come in the mail.
I love the styling, the patterns, the jewels. I pretty much usually want just about everything in there…or at least I try to convince myself that I do
totallymostdefinitelyabsolutely need another bracelet/pair of jeans/chambray shirt/bikini/candle.
GO and get their loot peeps – they have some seriously great stuff!

Yesterday was sister day. Since the sister has been busy working away at school, we barely get to go out and spend a day just us girls. So yesterday was that day because she is leaving to visit the fams in AZ tomorrow.
We spent the day getting our nails done, lunch, errands, shopping (maybe too much shopping)…and just hanging out! It was fun and long overdue. I miss having her around with me, being my little design assistant. She’s the best. I just need to remember to get her on a day of plenty of sleep, feed her, make sure she doesn’t exhaust herself too much..and well feed/water her – then we are good to go!
Funny how she’s like this and so is the bf..one in the same..lucky me I guess!
Happy Tuesday lovelies!
Oh my..may be a dream closet of mine/any woman!
We apologize for being a little MIA lately…we are usually pretty on top of things. But with Nest being seriously busy, Toast starting up and M about ready to pop…us ladies have some serious stuff goin’ on!
So as we apologize to all you lovely peeps that want to hear the things we have to say twice a day…we may be in a bit of a daze for the next little while.
With all this business stuff going on, it really got me thinking!
Well you know how much I love revamping things every year or so…I think we may need a new face for this blog. I mean don’t get me wrong..I love what the sisters did, but they know me a little too well, and know that as I grow…my ideas of design change.
Hear me out.
I would love a place for interiors, events, family, life, personal style, fashion – to exist in one. So I am thinking of renaming this blog, and maybe expanding it a little to encompass Toast AND Nest. More of a lifestyle type. We will obviously continue Interior of the day, but we may occasionally pop in Event of the day, or fashion inspiration. I just want people to feel like this place is a place for all things Design & Life.
Any ideas lovelies? Let me know your thoughts!
