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: 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 […]

FASHION: Crystal Clear

{Old Navy Jeans // Target Shirt & Shoes // Necklace c/o Alison Storry} Accessories are what makes me. If I didn’t have accessories I would just be the walking advertisement and serious supporter of jeans and a tee. 93% of the time this is the start to my outfits for the entire week, weekend are a different story, less fancy and more plaid pj pants with the only added accessory being a bra when company arrives. My eyes are always hunting. Hunting for the perfect everyday necklace or the most adorable earrings or better yet a bracelet I can stack without suffocation. My neck, ears, and wrists can never get enough, much to […]

FASHION: Bambi Beautiful

SHOP THE LOOK// Jeans  –  Top  –  Sweater  –  Boots It’s no joke I enjoy dressing Sofia as much as I do myself, and some days her more than I. Kids clothing is just so, fun, so carefree, it has absolutely no rules and I love that most about it. Their are many things I hope for, for Sofia, one of them is strength and bravery. I hope that she can walk to the beat of her own drum, be herself, love the skin she is in, and I hope she can inspire others to do the same. Recently I found a new, and by new I mean […]
