Flower Power

“Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” Miranda Priestley’s famed catty retort from The Devil Wears Prada may live on in infamy, but truth be told I’m not the biggest fan of floral prints.  And I’m seemingly late to the party with this trend this year….with summer in full bloom and all (see what I did there 😉…

Belt It!

I was on the verge of uttering “I have nothing to wear” one morning last week, as I tried to plan my outfit for the day. All I knew was that I wanted to wear these gold open-toed sling backs (Nine West) no matter what! I bought them last summer for a wedding I was…

Summertime Simple

BBQ invitations are in full force … and I’m lovin’ it! So fun, flirty, light-weight summer dresses is what I’m all over when it comes to going from the heat of daytime sun into the wee hours of late night drinking in someone’s backyard or balcony. Like this easy-peasy summertime look I put together the…

Hello, Yellow!

It was a gloomy partly cloudy day in Toronto … and surprisingly chilly for a July day. With an afternoon full of meetings in the downtown core (yuck), my mood needed some lifting.  So I decided that my outfit needed to be bright, loud and fresh. Here’s what I came up with: I’ve been searching…

Deep-V Faux Wrap

I have to say that I’ve been really, really good about NOT making too many additional outfit purchase since my Cross Boarder Shopping Extravaganza earlier this summer.  Buuuuuuut, every now and again, usually when I finally make it into the office downtown, I maybe find an amazing piece or two that is simply too lovely…

Graphic Tiki

Nothing screams summertime like tiki prints! I picked up this graphic tiki dress from Forever21 recently — with full intentions on saving it for the Toronto Vintage Society’s annual Tiki Party this August. (Check it out this year friends….super fun times…add it to your summertime fun calendar!)  😉 Buuuuut I couldn’t wait! Since my toes…

Backless Nautical Navy

Ooo!!  It’s summertime and I have to admit, I’ve been baring my arms and legs much more than I ever had in pervious summers. Blogging has gotten me braver in my outfit choices and more confident to rock things I’d normally shy away from.  Like this fantastic dress I picked up cross-border shopping recently ……

Dog Days of Summer

I’m a total city girl.  Growing up cottage-less, I’ve never really got to enjoy “the great outdoors” much as a kid…and have only really started to appreciate being out in nature as an adult. Before moving into a shoe-box sized condo, I owned a house  in the East York/Upper Beaches area of Toronto with a…
