You know it’s summer when I step out in white jeans. OK. I’m old school. I cannot wear white pants or shoes before Memorial Day. Everyone says it’s a fashion rule to be broken. I disagree. That said once Memorial Day does hit I can’t stop rocking the white jeans. I have “nice” ones that are work appropriate and destroyed ones that are weekend appropriate. The key to white jeans? Don’t pair them with anything that will make you look like a nurse! Unless you are one of course. Here I paired my first foray with a breezy Free People dress and my new rose gold Birkenstock sandals. Love them! Oh… you know those sunglasses with flat lenses that are so hot now? Check out these Kate Spade!

What is it about ripped up jeans that’s so cool? I can’t stop wearing these. Not only are they cool, but they’re so comfortable! Perfect amount of stretch. I know Abercrombie & Fitch isn’t having the moment it did some time ago, but their jeans fit and they look good and they’re reasonable! The rest of the outfit? Free People on top — of course. I’m attempting to incorporate some colour into my spring wardrobe! And the adorable little booties with the fringe are by Ash. Love that brand. Cool styles and comfortable. Don’t forget your accessories people! They can really make an outfit and complete the vibe! Mirrored sunglasses in a complementary colour are a start. They always say not to overdo it on the jewellery. I get it, but don’t necessarily agree. If it works go for it! Layer your necklaces and pile on the bracelets. No worries!
Wrap – Great Option!
goo.ey – Design-led phone cases inspired by art and fashion. goo.ey cases stick to glass and mirror so you can enjoy your device hands free.
I was so excited to receive this case. First of all — it’s sparkly. Second of all — it’s pink. Breast cancer survivor — must have pink. This particular case is from the Phoebe Lettice collection but they have many amazing designer collections to choose from. The coolest thing is that instead of taking a selfie with your arm swinging in the breeze or holding a stick in front of you it sticks to glass so you’re hand’s free! You can then set the timer while you position yourself properly or, if you have an Apple Watch you can control your camera with that and hit the button when you’re ready.
I love that you can take a whole body selfie and get all sorts of different outfit angles. I do have to admit that I was terrified to hang my phone on a mirror or window, but it didn’t fall! It really sticks! Don’t let the name deceive you. You’re not actually walking around with a sticky gooey phone case. It’s perfectly smooth but the material also keeps it from slipping around too much if you rest it on your desk or a table. Love it!
Here are some shots I took playing around with my new goo.ey case. Enjoy!

My niece planned our family day starting with a trip to the rink. She knew her aunt could skate as a kid. I’m not even going to tell you how many years it’s been since I put on a pair of skates. The ones I’m wearing? They’re my custom skates from when I was a kid! Much to my surprise I can still do it! I was actually quite good back in the day and took lessons and did shows. After all, I grew up in Canada so we had a lot of ice! I was shaky at first but it all came back. I even did a little jump! Après skate was brunch, books, hover boarding and a chihuahua in a euphonium!

I tried something new last time and apparently you all missed my commentary. I guess I should be flattered that you actually read what I write! Here it goes…
Can I just mention that winter blogging is tough? How often am I dressed before the sun sets? Not very apparently! And I adore winter fashion and would love to show you so much more! Oh well… I give up. Pictures from my sitting room and living room, Scotch in hand, will have to do until the sun stays up a little longer.
This awesome sweater kimono with fun fringes at the bottom was all I needed to be cozy yet chic. I always have a cami or tank underneath everything because restaurants are so overheated in the winter. I need to be able to strip down as much as possible! I adore how dark greys and blacks make shiny jewellery pop so well. The necklace is a new acquisition that my parents brought back from Europe and I needed the right outfit to show it off. Side note… I love these Prada Chelsea boots!

Happy Halloween! So not my thing! That said, my husband and I attended a benefit this past weekend and had to come up with something! I was going for hipster but I’m honestly not sure if it came out as hipster, or grunge or something combined. My husband has been told that he could be any of the characters on The Big Bang Theory so he went for Leonard Hofstadter. I think he was spot on!
