OMGoodness me don’t those look yummy! No real recipe, she just posted about her chip making endeavour…delish.
We found that via Cupcakes & Cashmere.
Top: Club Monaco | Skirt: Target similar here | Shoes: Prabel Garung for Target | Bracelet: Ann Taylor similar here | Belt: Joe Fresh similar here | Nail polish: Deborah Lippman “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” | Sunglasses: Versace similar here
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!
I have this itch. This severe itch to redecorate the spaces I spend time in. Whether it is a small addition, a re-purposing idea, or to revamp the entire thing. It is there.
So ya’ll know I can design..haha. But this idea of me constantly improving my spaces is fun, but exhausting. I mean I am always always in my everyday life, helping people change their spaces. Come up with new ideas, find them make creative uses of their spaces as is and it is rare that we really get to just revamp!
Wondering why for the rant today… well all you lovely Instagram followers of mine know that the bf loves me so much and has allowed me to change aspects of his space. Which is this one on the website. A bit too manly and cold right?
The bf knows that I constantly want to change his space…even though I don’t live there. So I sneakily keep adding more pillows, or changing their covers, putting candles and picture frames where I can. And buying new bedding (which my mother would say I am notorious for!) So I finally decided to approach the topic, after we had had plenty of conversations about the idea of us moving in together – which will not be happening unless we get a townhouse/house.
My pitch was why not make the best of the fact that we have this decent place here, and the rent is good. Let’s make it a little step closer to being more like “us”.
With a good long convo- about money and longevity and money, and maybe the fact that revamping it will not make me want to spend more time here, and a semi “Ok you can do a few things”.
Slash that was my take on me getting the go-ahead and that is all I have been doing for the past 4 days.
I pretty much got everything I want except: a slipcovered sofa, a new rug, new side chairs, new dining table and some wallpaper. BUT I seriously got a ton of improvements from the before and guess what…
He likes it better.
The new and improved place is cozier, more welcoming, and much much more grown up.
I will post the reveal eventually, but for now follow me on Instagram @natach11 for the latest!
Happy Tuesday lovelies!
On somewhat cloudy dreary days like today…I would love breakfast in bed!
With the whole wedding season in full swing, and me loving it all…I have been noticing some really sweet ideas for the “head tables” or maybe even just a table for the two! I thought that these ideas were just darling, and I would not mind sharing with my love for that day either.
Happy Monday 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.
