Easter Bunny

Happy Easter!

fullsizeoutput_5ea

I hope your weekend has been filled with impossibly high sugar intakes and sweet love!

Easter celebrations are low key now that my only child has hit the late teens and while he did enjoy chocolate and I got hugs and kisses, there was sadly no Easter Egg Hunt for me him this year.

Regardless of egg hunts or sugar highs I still can’t resist a outfit with a theme. This adorable bunny top is curtesy of H&M’s plus line. I’ve scored some really great picks from them although the line is very limited. Take note: they offer a lot more online and only select stores carry the plus items.

Skirt from Addition Elle and tights, as always, from We Love Colors.

Anyone else do an Easter inspired outfit for the weekend?

Spring Flowers

IMG_5751

I’ve been ready for Spring sunshine for weeks now! It’s been making random appearances through my office window.

fullsizeoutput_59a

I honestly can’t remember the last time I went barefoot as opposed to warm socks and Uggs, even indoors! I’m definitely ready to bring out my Spring wardrobe now though.

fullsizeoutput_58c

I picked this hippie blouse up from the sale rack at H&M because all the detailing was too amazing to pass up! The high collar, the eyelet and the sheer back with large keyhole!!!

FYI, trying to capture a photo from behind, is the worst.

The jeans were an amazing find from Charlotte Russe which I featured on a previous Shopping Cart post. I paid $12.50 for these beauties!!

I already know these will end up being well worn throughout the Spring and Summer this year!

What are you most excited to put on this Spring?

Pretty in Pink

I’m back!

It was a much longer than anticipated return to OOTD posts but my work trip was intense & then I got insanely sick. But I’m back! And so is SPRING!!!!

IMG_4931

I was so happy to get in and see my stylist for an update of my colour. We had a bit of fun with a messy/curly style while I was there too.

Today I’m rockin this adorable, super short Forever 21+ collared dress. I tried it previously with leggings and jeggings but what it was really waiting for was Spring weather and tights!

fullsizeoutput_571

We Love Colors are everything to me in the Spring and Fall. I have so many colours and honestly always think I need more. This particular shade is Orchid Pink. The adorable saddle shoes were a total steal from ModCloth.

This is my ‘Hi, I’m feeling cute’ look.

Out of This World

fullsizeoutput_348

Oh hello there!

Busy week for me and I’ll be honest, I haven’t gotten out of the house much! Working from home offers me so many amazing advantages but it does sometimes result in unwashed hair and yoga pants. I try to avoid that cliche as much as possible by picking out outfits I love, doing my hair and makeup…even when I do only have a video conference that day.

I’m loving my grape elbow patch dress for workdays. I can wear leggings or tights with it and still feel comfy and cozy while looking pretty.

fullsizeoutput_34d

I purchased the dress online from the super cute In Pursuit – a mobile boutique based out of Saint John, New Brunswick that I loved shopping out during my time out east. It’s actually set up in a big pink truck and sets up location all over the city. It’s adorable and you need to see it, but also they have an online store so I can keep shopping!

fullsizeoutput_34a

Wheeeee!

Seriously, I love this dress! I matched it with my We Love Colors splash tights! We Love Colors is my favourite place to purchase coloured tights. They have every colour you can dream of and even ones you didn’t even think of yet!

Wild At Heart – Valentine’s Day

fullsizeoutput_338

So the big romantic day has arrived, Valentine’s Day 2017!

My sweetie has been under the weather so we will have a low key celebration but he definitely didn’t miss the opportunity to still spoil me with chocolates and flowers (such a traditionalist)!

img_4223

Of course I didn’t want to miss out on the special Valentine’s Day outfit either. I thought about a pink dress but since we won’t be going out on the town this week I chose something a little more Wild At Heart.

img_4226

My Torrid sequin heart sweater was a perfect choice for the day (and pretty much all days if I’m being honest) and it’s so darn cute! I love the wide neck and grey is perfect for me these days. I love sequins but I typically shy away from them in clothes because they fall off quickly and all of a sudden it looks sloppy and you spent too much. This sweater is holding up though! I purchased this when it was first released in November and throw it in the washer AND dryer… not a single sequin has jumped ship!

fullsizeoutput_335

I paired the sweater up with my new Junarose leather looking leggings from ASOS.

fullsizeoutput_337

The front of the leggings are leather looking with a stretchy back. I love them and already know they will be a frequent for nights out. Kind of love them with the red booties that I scored from the now defunct shoeme. It was my go-to store for Canadian online shoe shopping so if any of you have great links for shoes let me know in the comments!!!!

And of course I needed to update my nails with a new colour and Jamberry. I’m wearing Grey Matter from X Factor (Sephora) with Jamberry Gray & Silver Stripe wrap.

So tell me about your plans (and shoes) this week! Was happening in your world?

Winter Floral

Canadian weather gets me down! Snow then rain, ice then rain. I decided today’s outfit post needed to lift my spirits a little bit so it’s a little dressier than my typical working-from-home wear of sweaters and leggings.

 

img_3948

It’s not an oversized hoodie and polka dot leggings but I assure you it’s just as comfy!

fullsizeoutput_2cc

When I ordered this blouse from Torrid I was in love with the hi-lo style but wasn’t sure about the overall look and how it might suit me. Now it’s one of those outfits that everyone compliments me on each time I wear it!

fullsizeoutput_2ec

Brighter than my usual black, navy or grey routine I feel feminine and pretty. I pair it with a Forever21 tank for layering in the cold and some high waisted jeggings from there as well.

Wrapping things up I’ve got my go-to everyday jewelry and some Jamberry nail wraps I’ve paired with Sephora polish!

Cowl be there

You should probably get used to me sharing my love of eShakti here as my love knows no bounds. Consider downloading the app and signing up for all the amazing discounts because when you check out all they have to offer you are going to start your own affair with them! During their Boxing Day sale I snagged myself a seriously heavy shopping cart with even heavier discounts.

There is a new line of products featuring heavy cotton knits, asymmetrical patterns and some fabulous cowl necks!

cl0043514ml1   cl0043757ml   cl0044185ml   cl0045695ml

Feeling like I might be cold forever in this grey winter, I snagged a bunch of these heavy knits thinking they would keep me fashionable while warm.

img_3853   img_3867

I bought the Cowl Neck Top in both black and navy. It is so easy to dress up or just get cozy in. I often pair it with legging for working from home but love it with jeans when heading out.

img_3863

 

I paired the black top with my favourite Forever21+ high waisted jeggings and a pair of boots I picked up from their clearance section for under $20. With knee-high socks from Urban Outfitters, presto, perfect outfit for shopping with my GirlGang!

Did I mention this top has pockets?!

img_3864

It’s also perfect with leggings due to it’s almost tunic length. Here I’ve paired it with my tattoo leggings from Torrid to channel my inner rockstar.

img_3865

These awesome fake suede red booties were purchased from the  shoeme.ca outlet!

Have you tried eShakti? What did you get and how was your experience? Did you know they do custom fits and sizes as well?!
