Little Black Dress

img_5206

There is so much to be said about a great little black dress. It’s versatile, can be on heavy rotation, you can work layers into it, and it can be the mediator of a statement shoe or bag.  Or simply, the little black dress can be the focal point of interest. It is a dependable wardrobe staple that everyone should have. Pictured I am wearing my LBD as the simple focus, and I paired it with a suede bootie. It is an overall-put-together-look, and with a slicked ponytail, you can’t go wrong in showcasing a simple yet sophisticated look.

Hey y’all! Just want to throw in a quick weekend outfit post. Although we are in November, the weather has been super good to us. We get to enjoy all the fall favours without the chilling temperature. Fall is the best season to wear clothes, and the fact that I can still be wearing culottes this time of year makes it even better. You probably all know how obsessed I am with grey and how much I love pairing neutral tones. I got these amazing culottes from Oak + Fort with it’s matching top, which I will be sure to post together soon.  Other fall staples; leather jacket, skinny jeans, booties, bombers, your favourite double breasted overcoat, and the list goes on. Take advantage of this warm fall weather before we have to cover up in winter coats and boots!

A Writers Craft IIII

I am here with some more of my favourite excerpts in literature. I am going to post a few tonight; I am feeling exceptionally deep..

“Years of love have been forgot, in the hatred of a minute.” – Edgar Allan Poe

“I read once that the ancient Egyptians had fifty words for sand, and the Eskimos had a hundred words for snow. I wish I had a thousand words for love, but all that comes to mind is the way you move against me while you sleep..& there are no words for that.”

“I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic then to love people.” – Van Gogh

“The best people possess a feeling for beauty. The courage to take risks. The discipline to tell the truth. The capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded. Sometimes destroyed.” – Ernest Hemingway

“A great man is always wiling to be little.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

Until next time,

ME IN NYC

It has always been a dream of mine to go to New York City in the fall for my birthday, and for me this year that came true! I am so blessed to have such an amazing best friend who surprised me with the trip which couldn’t have come at a better time, considering I really needed a reason to get away for a little bit. I am excited to share with you guys some pictures from the trip, including what I wore while roaming around my favourite city.

It felt really good to leave everything behind, even just for a few days. It is important to clear your head, take time for yourself and kind of discover who you are, what you want and where you are headed. Life can get pretty crazy and rough, so if it is going to take a quick weekend away to help sort yourself out, do it. Everyone needs a break sometimes.

BOYISH CHARM

One thing I love to embody is the borrowed-from-the-boys look. I am super into the cigarette pant + oxfords look, especially when I throw a trench coat over top which really plays with aspects of masculine and feminine style. Nowadays that men and women shop in each others sections anyhow makes me even more excited to play in the mens section and work it into stuff I already have. img_5196

ME IN D&G

Hi guys! I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted a look (I suck), but now that fall is arriving, I will definitely be sure to post a lot more. Fall is my favourite season to dress for, so stay tuned for how I style it.

I really wanted to share with you guys these killer Dolce & Gabbana boots for fall. We just got them in at Saks and I could not wait to put them on. Make sure to pop in to Saks at Sherway Gardens for all your fall desires. We have received a lot of amazing styles to help you transition into the new season and keep you looking fresh for fall!

TONE+TONE

IMG_3873IMG_3955

One of my favourite things to do with a look is to play with tones. Mixing neutrals with a touch of colour tends to intimidate people but realistically, playing with tones is an infallible way of creating a really unique or cool look. For me, navy is my black, and I never go wrong with a navy+neutral or navy+color combo.

Always

Hi guys! I just wanted to share some short but sweet Sunday inspiration. No matter what is going on in your life or whether or not you think you’re ready, when it comes to you, always embrace it. Choose love, every time. 

OOTD CHRONICLES

Hey y’all! I know it has been awhile so I wanted to do something a little different and show you guys shots of my outfits from work. Considering that is where I spend the majority of my time, I figured it is imperative to take pictures of my day-to-day that I can share with you guys.

Until next time,
