Styling My Cape Jacket for Spring

Hello babes! Today I am showing off my Zaful Cape Jacket in anticipation of the weather warming up. I styled it with my black over-the-knee boots from Steve Madden. The crossbody bag is something I’ve had for a few years from Michael Kors. I have been obsessed with its glowing Sapphire colour for a long time! Ideally I would wear something sleeveless under a jacket like this – but it’s still far too cold! What are

Musings of a Millennial Turning 30

Hello Babes! Well – this is it, I’ve officially hit the big 3-0. Scary? Not at all! Although, I simply cannot believe how much the time has flown. When people would tell me that it goes faster the older you get I didn’t believe them! I was told by a dear friend of mine that turning 50 is a very liberating age. It might be safe to say that 30, for me is somewhere along

capsule wardrobe challenge

My 10-Day Capsule Wardrobe Challenge Experience

I had often dreamed of having a capsule wardrobe but never intentionally acted on it. In theory it sounded amazing to have a few select, neutral pieces that all paired well with each other for endless combinations. When my friend V announced that she was taking on the #winter10x10 capsule wardrobe challenge I was ready to give it a shot. It was created by Lee Vosburgh and Caroline Joy. Those participating would choose 10 items

Zaful Valentine’s Day Sale Wishlist

Hi Beauties! It has been awhile since I have written a wishlist post. I thought I would share a few of my favourite items right now from an online boutique called Zaful. I love that they offer so much selection and it is all very affordable! I should also mention that they have a wide range of sizes available, from petite to plus. Right now they are having a Valentine’s Day sale until February 14th so

Neutral PinkBlush

Holiday Neutrals

I like to grab a warm cup of cozy for the holidays – and I suppose what I am feeling inside is reflected in my outfits. I love comfy, neutral pieces and a mix of various textures. I partnered again with PinkBlush and styled my camel ladder cut top with my favorite wool coat. The sleeves from the shirt almost appear to be an extension of the jacket. I am obsessed – what’s not to love? I

Ruffle Top

Mama Style Diaries: Ruffles + Skinnies = LOVE

I love outfits that are actually effortless but look like you put work into them! This gorgeous look (that I am aiming to wear a couple more times before the cold weather hits) fits the bill perfectly! I wore it the other day while my hubs and I went out to run a few errands, take a quick photo shoot and grab a cold drink. I have always had my eye on a top like

Zaful Sweater

Athleisure Cool for Fall

Although I do like dressing up, there is a side of me that also loves to thoughtfully piece together casual looks. I have always been drawn to slouchy pieces – over sized jackets and sweaters, wide leg pants, large scarves and flowing vests to name a few. I am also a really big fan of athleisure. I am not saying you will spot me in yoga pants running around doing errands anytime soon, but it

Stylish Diaper Bags for Busy Mamas

When I started shopping for baby gear I had it in mind to splurge on two items – a stroller and diaper bag. I was more than willing to purchase second-hand baby clothes and save money on other items but I figured that these two essentials in particular needed to have excellent quality, functionality and style. I ended up choosing a Lily-Jade bag; their Madeline style in the Brandy colour. Today I dish on what

Celebrating My One Year Blogiversary!

This month marks one year for my blog! I cannot believe all the changes that have happened in such a short time. I have had the privilege of working with so many amazing individuals and brands. Prior to starting this blog in connection with my Fashion Illustration business, I was on the beauty panel as a regular contributor for Toronto Beauty Reviews – founded by Elaine Atkins. Writing for Elaine taught me quite a bit

Zaful Midi Dress Wish List

I have often seen Zaful posts on Instagram, and recently my sister mentioned the online shopping site to me while I was helping a friend source out some cute, reasonably priced bathing suits for her vacation in Greece. Swimming apparel aside, they also have a lot of cute clothing in a wide variety of styles – one of them being the midi dress. This length of dress has made a comeback in a big way
