Goodbye 2013

2013 was not a banner year for me so I’m honestly not sad to see it go. Here’s to a Happy, Healthy and Fashionable 2014. A huge thank you to all my faithful readers! Happy New Year!

Her Name Was Lola

I really have no idea who Lola is, but it’s a great little Latin Bistro by us with a very pretty fire pit outside. It’s not always possible to get in, so when they had space at the last minute we dashed out the door. I had a lousy week which means I went shopping this weekend. Everything is on sale now. Time to buy those boots and coats you’ve been coveting!

Black and gold is such a fabulous combination. It looks rich and put together no matter what you do. I saw this jacket and it was on sale for less than a third the regular price. It’s not like I don’t own a leather jacket, I just don’t own one like this! Then I couldn’t resist boots with matching gold studs. Too cool. Keeping the trend moving I put on a bunch of black and gold studded jewellery, a gold top and my favourite J Brand coated skinny black jeans.

And The Festivities Continue

And The Festivities Continue

I mean, after all, you can’t just celebrate for one evening can you? This outfit was for a special steak dinner in the town where I previously lived. While it’s a rather conservative town overall, I’m not so I went with a mix. The blouse is conservative just because it’s a blouse, but the two layers and animal print and flowing sleeves turned it up a notch. Instead of plain black pants I went with these Rag & Bone that have leather stitches on the bottom. The shoes; well… they are really amazing but they are truly what I refer to as “dinner shoes”. That’s pretty much all you can do in them. Sit and eat dinner.  Walk to the car? Um…. no! Like my new Troll Bead bracelet? I’ll have to get details of each bead. It was a birthday gift from mum and dad. I can’t wait to go choose more! Lubi is wearing an adorable little number by Martha Stewart for PetSmart. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday To Me!

Happy Birthday To Me!

Yesterday I celebrated my birthday. This hasn’t been a fabulous year for me having been diagnosed with breast cancer and having been through all of the things that go along with it. This year my birthday wasn’t about a number. It was about celebrating life with my amazing family. I had my hair done earlier in the day at Sparks to pamper myself a little bit and in the evening we had supper at my mum and dad’s with my family and my husband’s family. Since dinner was at the house it wasn’t fancy, but I wanted to wear something kind of special for my day. I had been waiting for the right evening to wear this amazing ASTR cardigan from Nordstrom Savvy. I love that it’s black and blue — one of my favourite colour combinations — and the fringes are so much fun! I paired it with a simple black silk tee underneath and these amazing J Brand jeans with little holes up the back. While I wanted some height, I didn’t feel it necessary to prance around the house in stilettos so I chose these simple booties with a chunkier heel. They are comfortable and didn’t distract from the rest of the details in the outfit.
