Just Inspire Me…

Oh my do I love this bathroom. After I found this I remembered that I barely posted any of my “outfit” posts from Hawaii. So because this jogged my memory…I feel like the landscape and my outfit well resembles this dreamy tropical bathroom!

Shop this look: Top: Gap | Jeans: Mother Denim (really comfy jeans!) | Scarf: 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target | Shoes: House of Harlow (Marshalls score!) | Sunnies: Rayban Aviators (worn all Summer!) | Bracelets: Madewell & Stella and Dot | Rings: Nicola Chong Jewellery

Now with all the hype dying down from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target launch (which was like a piranha feeding frenzy), I really now get a chance to mix and match with some of the things I have bought. This scarf was a score! And as a nabbed it about 0.5 seconds before the other lady had a chance to grab it…I grabbed this one and the BOOM one. Turns out this one was the better choice and it matched perfectly with my House of Harlow shoes – which were a total Marshalls score!

Sometimes you just have good luck and it really does pay off – or at least make you pretty darn happy!

Happy Tuesday lovelies!

The Home T…

Shop this look: t-shirt – The Home T | jeans – GAP | shoes – Prabal Garung for Target | bag- Marc by Marc Jacobs | necklaces – J Crew | Lips: NARS Heatwave | Watch – Kate Spade Gramercy Grand | sunnies – Versace

I saw this t-shirt on Pinterest, and I knew that if the company was smart..they would make a Canada one. And bang – they did! There is something really neat about displaying where you are from, I mean we all do it. Whether it’s sports teams, license plates, or Olympic gear..most of us are pretty proud of where we either live..or where we came from.

The great thing about this t-shirt is that it is already super duper soft, and has a vintage feel. Bonus when you are buying something brand spanking new. Secondly, part of the proceeds go to charity!

Now remember when I told you guys that I got a new camera – I think I did. Well it takes awesome pics, and unfortunately because the bf and my Mama wear glasses…and never want to take them off…my pictures sometimes appear blurry. I apologize!

Thanks for reading, happy Wednesday!

Shop this look: Top: Zara (old)- similar | Shorts: GAP | Shoes: Topshop (old) | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs – new! | Sunnies: Rayban aviator wayfarers – new! Bracelets: Hula Hoops Maui, Stella & Dot | Rings: Nicola Chong Jewellery, GLAMROCKS design, Club Monaco | Lips: NARS Heatwave | iPhone Case: J Crew – love this one | Nails: OPI Cajun Shrimp

There is something about really neat graffiti in the city. It can really make things stand out or get lost. Luckily I was wearing a relatively neutral look last night, and I took perfect opportunity to give you guys a change of scenery for a bit! So we stood there in about 30 degree weather – the bf wearing a suit…and shot against this awesome art!

The bf is getting much better at getting my pictures just right (they usually turn out super blurry/he forgets that my hair looks “piecey” or like in the last shot my glasses are completely crooked!). He has told me he has a client who really loves photography so maybe that guy can teach him a few pointers.

I keep explaining to him that all the other famous bloggers/fashion bloggers their husbands and bf’s take all their pictures! The thing about the bf is that he really is a quick learner once we get the hang of things. He is unusually great at all sports, give him something and he will excel!

So we will get there…in due time!

Thanks for following, Happy Thursday!

Jean jacket: GAP | Plaid shirt: Woolrich | T-shirt: Market twenty seven c/o | Leggings: Talula | Wedges: Target | Watch: Timex $30! | Bracelet: Links of London | Rings: Nicola Chong Jewellery, Silpada, GLAMROCKSdesigns| Lips: Tarte Lipsurgence in Fiery | Sunglasses: Anthropologie

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!

Jacket: A Movable Feast | Hat: Joe Fresh | Chinos: GAP | Boots: Zara | Avaitors: Anthropologie | Lips: Tarte Lipsurgence in Enchanted (seriously a super fave!)

I am a Pinterest-er. I go on there every day, expecting to be inspired. And it never seems to disappoint. I am quite the sucker for wonderful images. Personal style posts…

– insert serious “ugh” sound-

– huge sucker –

(I totally secretly wish that I was one of those awesome style bloggers I see all the time there too!)

I like to make mental notes of what part of their outfit makes it just right? Colour? Hair? Slouchy pants/tight pants? Stilettos?

Since I seriously enjoy fashion/fashion bloggers…and am always interested in trying to use the items of clothing that I already have to duplicate/try to duplicate, or even just being inspired to try new outfits I haven’t tried before.

Usually it is easier said than done, because the fit is sometimes off…that’s frustrating. But for the most part playing dress up can be fun!

Since I know you have voiced/liked my outfit posts before…come with me on this style journey!

This was the bf and I last weekend. We had a wonderful dinner date at our fave pizza place in town.. QMP (Queen Margherita). And I tried something different with my hair…curly!

This is usually how our dinner date nights go down… I pick him up from work, we drive to the restaurant (as we chase the sunset), we get out and take pictures (sometimes he thinks that I only dress up for you guys), and then we head to the restaurant.

He is funny about taking pictures. Ridiculous in fact. He seems to think that he doesn’t know anything (even with the directions that I give him). He thinks that it is just beginners luck. I always tell him, that we are beyond that..he actually can take half decent pics (with guidance).  But still.

Silly guy. Look at that face.
