I know. The same checked blazer has been everywhere, on everyone. “Me too” clothes. I didn’t even want one until I saw these amazing sleeves. OK. So they’re not practical for work because they’re kinda huge and get in the way, but so much fun for going out! I went with a velvet tank underneath because I’m notoriously hot in restaurants and paired with boyfriend jeans and loafers for an upscale casual vibe.
The new jewellery is my anniversary gift from my hubby and I love it! Swarovski crystal for our crystal anniversary. It’s so beautiful and I can see wearing it with really dressy outfits too! Enjoy!

So Sunday at work is jeans day. YAY!! I find it so much easier to get dressed when my beloved denim is involved. It’s fun to dress up and oh so nice to mix it up and not wear yet another pair of black pants. Making denim work appropriate isn’t always an easy task though. It definitely requires a nice top and shoes. No sweatshirts and sneakers with ripped jeans in the office. Right?
One of my favourite designers for shirts is Rails. The shirts are a little pricy but the quality and design are both great. They’re known for their plaids, but have some “fancier” options too. Nice shoes? Right up my alley. These are Prada found on sale at Saks and they’re so unbelievably comfortable. The platform gives me height but keeps my foot flat. Bonus! They also opened a new Saks Off 5th close to me where I found these jeans. Probably too close!
I have to mention this necklace and my current obsession with said necklace. Have you seen the show Schitt’s Creek? Hilarious! Watch! Alexis wears this sideways “A”. I found one on the Anthropologie website and the day I got a free shipping email I made it mine!

It never fails. Fall comes and I’m so excited about the change in weather and can’t wait to show you my fall outfits and then I remember how early it gets dark! Indoor pictures. So much more difficult! I love being able to wear fall colours and sweaters and boots though and I actually don’t even mind that it gets dark earlier. I like going out for supper after the sun sets. I know I’m weird. I’ve been told so a million times! It’s October so the breast cancer extensions are in — #survivor — and I’ve dyed the rest a deep purple though its hard to see in the pictures. It’s still quite warm here in the Northeast so I haven’t been able to break out the sweaters yet, but at least I’m in long flowing sleeves and long pants. Enjoy!

So, I’m really not a beauty blogger but this I have to share. When Maelove asked me to try their new product “The Sun Protector” I was excited and nervous. SPF on the face can be cruel. Breakouts, itchiness, etc. This product is a mineral based sunscreen (18% zinc) SPF 30 (non-nano) and is:
- Infused with antioxidants and doubles as a makeup primer
- Does not leave you greasy, flaky or with a white cast
- Made in America and developed in Silicon Valley
I have to tell you. It’s great. My skin didn’t break out, wasn’t itchy and surprise… my makeup stays so much better when I use it! Plus it’s very reasonably priced for a great skincare product. Use it all year long. I know we don’t think about SPF in the months other than summer but it’s so important!
Try it for yourself and let me know how you like it!
