Bring It On!

I love snow. Sorry all you summer fanatics, but winter is just my favourite. Snow is pretty. Rain is just sad.  There’s nothing like putting on a great pair of jeans and a cozy sweater and watching the snow fall. Not to mention my favourite accessory — the scarf. I actually incorporate scarves into every season, but the winter ones are the best! I saw this sweater in the Nordstrom Savvy department right when it arrived and I had to have it. Something about it just called to me. It’s a nice chunky knit and has the hi/lo concept which gives it some funkiness. For me to buy something not on sale it’s gotta really be right. Here I paired it with jeans and my Sorel boots for a casual look. What good Canadian girl doesn’t own a pair of Sorel boots? I’ve also worn it to the office with black pants and riding boots giving it a totally different, yet equally cool vibe. Versatility is everything. Hope you like it as much as I do!

Falling For It

What a nice break! The temperature today only reached about 70 degrees. Such a welcome change from the heat wave we’ve been experiencing. I had to wear something just a little bit “fall-ish”.

This top can definitely be put into the “Wear it Now, Wear it Later” category. I could easily incorporate it into my true fall wardrobe. OK, I put on coated jeans again. So sue me! These are slightly too thick for a hot summer day but feel just fine when it’s nice and cool and breezy. I’m so obsessed with Oliver Peoples sunglasses. These are very oversized, but the soft “pecan” colour gives them a soft pretty look. Fringed suede booties are definitely another cross over item. I think the light colour allows me to wear them in the spring and summer, especially with cropped pants, shorts or a skirt without looking silly. Love my boots!

Too Hot!

Too Hot!

I’m not referring to me. I’m referring to the weather. It’s over 90 degrees and the air conditioning can’t keep up! I had to wear something cool that didn’t touch me. People in my office are always freezing and I’m always dying of the heat! I’m so not a fan of the heat! This dress is light and airy so I didn’t feel like my clothes were sticking to me. It has a graphic pattern and some sequins that are very subtle.

A friend of mine told me that she never thought about accessorizing until she read my blog. You know who you are! Yeah! I influenced someone! Enjoy the outfit and accessories!

En Brun

En Brun

Yesterday was just a brown day. Brown everything. I guess it’s a break from black. Living in the New York Metropolitan area I’m prone to wearing boatloads of black though lately I’ve been trying to mix it up a little and brighten things up for spring. This look combined comfort, trendy and a little edgy all at once. And, once again, I defaulted to some of those cute spring booties! By the way… it’s hard to type with a chihuahua sitting on your hands and half on your laptop!

Hump Day

Feeling neutral today for hump day. This spring bootie trend is just awesome! I actually built my outfit around the boots and the necklace. We were watching a show later in the evening and they’re were making fun of wearing black with brown. Is that still a thing? I mix them. Uh oh!

Finally the temperature has dropped to a normal spring level and the sun has once again come out. I love this jacket. It’s a combination of biker cool and floral pretty. I also am in love with spring booties! We all know how much I love my boots! Thanks to my guest photographer today!

Go With the Flow

It has been pointed out to me by a friend that I love “flowy”. She’s right. I do! Can’t help it. It’s flattering, comfortable and stylish all at the same time. I’m going with the flow 🙂
