Comfy Travel Outfit

Fashion, Outfits







Hello Lovelies! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend with your families, friends, and loved ones. We had such lovely time, and although we weren’t able to be with family, we were blessed with amazing time with friends, delicious food, and definitely one too many desserts :)

Since many of you will be traveling home I thought I’d share one of my favorite travel outfits on the blog today. When we are on the road, I like to go for something chic, sporty, yet super comfy. A few weeks ago we were in Regina for a wedding and stayed over at the Hotel Saskatchewan, Autograph Collection. It is the most adorable hotel, with 20th-century charm with white marble bathrooms and oversized windows. Love, love, love!

The day after the wedding we spoiled ourselves to a delicious breakfast in bed, and thanks to our late check-out spent the day relaxing in our robes, drinking warm lattés :) After a relaxing day like that, my favorite outfit for hitting the road is this pair of joggers from Aritzia and my favorite H&M sweater. Plus, I always have my fluffy slippers close by to make the long trek cozy and comfy! What are some of your travel must-haves? <3

The Timeless Rose Gold Style

Fashion, Outfits












Hello lovelies! Coming to you from the most beautiful fall season ever! Which means it’s time for those over the knee boots, and cute long-sleeve dresses. Also, since it’s officially Watch Wednesday :) I thought I’d share a little post on styling the Rose Gold Debut Watch from Medium Watches. It is the perfect fall accessory, and goes so well dressed up or even with a cozy sweater. This time I paired the Debut White with the rose gold mesh straps, which are great for dressing up your look for date night!

The rose gold features are a great accent to all the fall colors around, and perfectly pops with this Halogen long-sleeve dress from Nordstrom. The neutral black Kate Spade cross-body purse doesn’t overpower the look, and allows it all to come together. When you want to style up the watch, don’t be scared to add a little extra bracelet or fine chain to accompany it. This is another great way to change it up and get a bit of a different look styled. The rose gold is definitely timeless, and I love having it in my fall wardrobe this year! What is your favorite watch this season? <3

Fall Jackets and Leather Booties

Fashion, Outfits












Hello Lovelies, and happy October to you all! Fall is absolutely beautiful right now, with all the gorgeous sunset-colored leaves. My absolute favorite are the deep, bright red ones – amazing! I love getting out of the house on these days (before the dreadful cold hits!!) even if it’s just for a short walk by the river, taking the dog around the block, or just stopping at one of the parks.

My mum and I had such a fun little walk in the park the other day. Not too hot, not too cold, so I threw on a fun 3/4 sleeve knit, my cute Steve Madden booties, plus my new favorite rose gold watch from Medium Watches (stay tuned for a full post coming soon!) and my trusty old leather jacket. Although, it was probably still too hot to whip out that baby – ambitious, but not necessary :) I know I shouldn’t jinx it, and should just enjoy the weather while it’s here. But remember, it’s always about being grateful for the time you do have in the seasons that you love! What are your favorite moments to cherish this Fall? <3

The Light-Weight Fall Jacket

Fashion, Outfits










Hello Lovelies! If you’re anything like me, then giving those summer dresses is the hardest part of the changing seasons. There’s nothing easier than a fun little dress and a pair of sandals to simplify your staple wardrobe. So in order to hang on a little longer, a light-weight fall jacket is an absolute must! It’s a great way to style a dress while staying a little bit warmer.

This khaki green fall jacket from Club Monaco is one of my favorites right now. The sleeves are 3/4, which is great for those warmer fall days while still keeping the cold out! Overall, this has been a go-to outfit for me lately. It’s perfect for a relaxed lunch date, paired with some sandals. Or you can dress it up with a pair of heel booties to kick it up a notch! Either way, it is a simple wardrobe staple and a great way to transition into fall. What are some of your favorite trends going into the new season? <3

Simons Calgary Grand Opening Tour

Fashion, Outfits


















Hello Lovelies! It’s been a weeks since the grand opening of Simons here in Calgary, so I thought I’d share a few snapshots I took while on the VIP pre-opening tour. Oh what fun!! The store is amazing and is spread out over five floors – ah-MAZING! I got to tour with one of my blogger babes, Andréa Margarita from Bad Peace – check out her blog here! As well as the lovely Courtney Brown from DearEverything – you can check her out here, and don’t forget to stop by her YouTube channel for a fun video of the event!

Simons is a family owned retailer that was originally started in Quebec City! I was lucky enough to be invited to tour the store and be shown around by the CEO Peter Simons & his brother Richard Simons, VP of Merchandising. It was so great to hear their story of how the business has been passed down through the generations and their incredible goals for the future. The store itself is beautiful; we were welcomed by the full team as well as their women’s buyer! After the tour and meeting the artists, we were served drinks and appetizers, as well as some amazing samples from The Chocolate Lab. If you haven’t yet, you have to check them out!!

I took a few shots of some of my favorite outfits, and definitely fell in love with the yellow Levi sweatshirt. Oh, and did a mention the men’s section?! So awesome! I don’t know about you, but the men’s section is always one of my favorite things in a store. I die for all their things, and so desperately wish my hubby would let me buy all his clothes for him.. But he’s more of a shopper than I am, so I can’t take the fun away from him! It’s so great to have them right here in Calgary now, and I cannot wait to see all the new goodies that come out for the summer time season. They have such a great collection of brands, from Matt & May, to Nike, to Vera Moda, North Face, you name it! And then they also have their own Simons brand, and exclusive designer sections for both the women and men’s lines as well. Hope you enjoy my little capture of the event, and be sure to check out the video as well! <3
