For Fox Sake {what stella wore}

What Stella Wore Fog + Fern Top // Joe Fresh Jeans // Gap Shoes // Fog + Fern Headband I mean she wears A LOT of clothing! It’s safe to say I dress and re-dress Stella Grace 3 times a day (because we’re all about self feeding right now). I feel like if anyone knows clothes it would be a parent at this very stage. We’re stretching, pulling, rolling and tossing so many items of clothing off our babes and into the hamper a day it should be a sport. If anyone is going to be a concessionaire of quality clothing it’s us! AM I RIGHT?! We […]

Back-To-School with Walmart

  Summer is nearly over and our minds (including our exhausted bodies) are excited for the school year ahead.  GRADE ONE is a pretty big deal over here; Sofia has mentally convinced herself she is now in a real grade. Unlike the 2 years of pre-school and 1 year of kindergarten, Grade One is different, IT’S A NUMBER which means it’s the real deal now, she’s in SCHOOL! Oh how I love 6-year-old reasoning!   Walmart Canada Website // Facebook // Twitter // Pinterest Similar to what we did last year, we partnered with Walmart on the Back-to-School Apparel Solutions program, and headed straight to where we knew the deals were and our money could be stretched; WALMART! Sofia was given  a $100 […]

FASHION: LYST is your new shopping buddy

What do you get when you cross a fashion obsessed woman 3 weeks postpartum, who find herself stuck inside most days due to c-section recovery? You get a lyst-addict, that’s what.  I was introduced to lyst as the Pinterest of shopping websites (well then, hello newest obsession!). Where you can save items to a personal board and keep a close eye on them for when, you know… WHEN THEY GO ON SALE! No word of a lie people, this exists. Lyst allows you to save items on a virtual board that you can re-visit again and again and again (as you do). You will be notified of stock alerts, […]

{mini} FASHION: Patterns & Layers

{Joe Fresh Shirt //  Joe Fresh Pants  //  H&M Vest  //  Joe Fresh Boots  //  Miss Giggle Buns Headband} Can I get this in adult size please?  Layers are really what it’s all about when it comes to this unpredictable weather we have here in Vancouver. We wake and it’s grim and foggy and dress accordingly, by noon the sun is shining, we pass people wear sunnies and we’re both sweltering in our so called weather appropriate ensembles. That’s the beauty of layers, they mask the foolishness of believing a morning face to be true to it’s word; you can remove a layer or two and fit in with the crowd quite […]

{mini} FASHION: Cats & Paperboy Hats

{Joe Fresh Sweater //  Joe Fresh Pants  //  Joe Fresh Jacket  //  Joe Fresh Boots  //  Joe Fresh Hat} First and foremost, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY GIRL!

The clothing is so on point, trend wise, and it’s crazy affordable. Oh […]

{MINI} FASHION: It’s all Black & White

{Joe Fresh Shirt  //  H&M Pants  //  Jacket c/o Memoiyo  //  Joe Fresh Boots  //  Miss Giggle Buns Headband}   It was one of those morning, we rushed out the door assuming it would be ridiculously hot outside like it had been 2 weeks running, and we step foot out the door and realize we actually may need our jackets. Not only might we need to cover up but those sandles were wearing are probably not appropriate if that nasty rain cloud comes through on her threats. Back in the door to dress according to the weather, grabbed a jacket and switch out our toe bearing shoes for….. BOOTS MAMA! I […]

FASHION: Versatility with Hudson’s Bay

When I get approached to style an outfit, I get excited. But when I’m asked to style a few outfits for a store I shop at faithfully, I get all sorts’ of giddy. Hudson’s Bay asked me to style a few pieces from their INC International Concepts line showing off its versatility; obviously I agreed. Not only do I love Hudson’s Bay and their many clothing lines, but versatility is what I look for in every piece of clothing that enters my wardrobe. My closet is by no means a walk-in my friends, each piece must be chosen carefully and strategically. Let me tell you about a totally inappropriate way […]

FASHION: His & Her “People Footwear” Style

HERS: Old Navy Tank & Jeans // Charlotte Russe Shirt // Shoes c/o People Footwear // Citrus Silver Necklace HIS: Old Navy Shorts // Target Shirt // Shoes c/o People Footwear Get ready to add shoes onto your weekly monthly dusting routine. For real people, the comfort of these babies will have you leaving your current shoe collection in the dust, literally. You won’t wanna wear anything else as far as I’m concerned, so my suggestion is, get 2 pairs, 1 in a fun color (like I’ve done above)and 1 in a neutral, white or black. Sammy and I are casual dressers 98% of the time, with the other 2% of our […]

{mini} FASHION: Fashionable Advice

{Joe Fresh Jeans // Shirt c/o Melijoe // Old Navy Vest // Target Shoes // Miss Giggle Buns Headband } When Sofia gets new clothes she must wear it yesterday. It’s quite serious actually, I have to be sure that I wash any new clothing before she even sets eyes on them, as once she catches wind of the new residence moving into her closet she is all about how fast she can get into them. Could this actually be a gene that I have passed along to her? Like eager-fashion-beaver or something? I dunno what it is, but no doubt we both have it in our blood. …mama, these clothes make me smile […]
