Some days are made for spending on the couch with a good book, a cup of tea and a cute dog to cuddle with. This was one of those days for me.

Dreaming of Spring: Wardrobe Wishlist

Oh this snow. This horrible, cold, wet, snow. Ugh.

Okay -  I know, I know - I live in Canada. It snows here. Duh. But still. It's been oh-so-cold for the past few weeks and it snows like every other day and I'm just tired of putting on 18 bajillion layers every single time I want to go out of the house, and I'm tired of days where the air is so cold it freezes your nose shut and then hurts your teeth when you breathe.

Okay - that was probably too much information - the point is - it's cold, and I'm sick of it.

To combat my Feb-blah-ary I've been doing a considerable amount of online window(s) shopping and I thought I would share my Spring Wardrobe Wishlist with you all! I'm dreaming of bright pink, coral, green and blue. Sunny yellows and bright rich reds. I'm dreaming flowers and prints and fun accessories too!

Vintage Inspired

Every now and then I get just a teensy bit obsessed with vintage and retro styling. I love the pictures I have of my great-grandmothers in their cotton day-dresses, sensible tweeds, and good walkable dressy shoes. I love the hats (and I'm wearing a fascintor headband in homage to them) and the simple accessories.

Fabulous Friday - Introducing Andrea!

It's back for another round - Fabulous Friday!
You've actually heard from Andrea before because she is the make-up queen behind the Mom skin-care and Mommy makeup posts - and now I've finally convinced her to to share her style with you as well!
She is a make-up guru, a Younique Representative, a social media maven and a Mama to 3 kiddos! Welcome Andrea!

A lazy Sunday with a little grocery shopping, late lunch with the family. What to wear... This mama is all about comfort (but I still want to look like I tried...) So this is what I came up with!

Some of my fave bloggers have been mentioning wearing some "neglected" clothing pieces lately... which made me think of this faux shearling moto type vest that's been hanging in my front closet.

Deck of Cards

In my first couple of years of high-school my mother used to remark that my wardrobe resembled nothing more than a deck of cards. It was, truly an abundance of red, black and white. And while I wholeheartedly embrace *almost* all the colours of the rainbow in my wardrobe now, there is something satisfying to me about a deck of cards outfit.

Pleather and Plaid

Don't you love a good thrifting find? I know I do. I was out with my sister and randomly happened upon this red pleather jacket. It's a Le Chateau, so the quality is decent, but I sure wasn't swayed by the $45 price tag. Of course that's when the lady working the shop mentioned that the blue tag items were 75% off that day. Pleather jacket for $13? Sold!

Cardi and Scarf

Get a bunch of Moms and Mom-types together and you'll see an abundance of these two things: cardigans and scarves.

Outdoorsy... ish

This is one of those outfits that I always try and categorize and it comes out as "Outdoors...y....ish".
Thing is - if I was actually spending time outdoors, I probably wouldn't be wearing this. But this is the kind of outfit that people think of when you say "outdoorsy". Y'know?

Cobalt & Stripes

I've been trying to think of things other than plain white to wear under my cobalt blazer. Sometimes you just get in a rut with certain items of clothing. I finally decided to try throwing it on over my striped tee and green pants.

Dressed up Loungewear

When I was younger I totally did not understand the concept of "loungewear". I mean, honestly - an entire type of clothing dedicated to.... uh... lounging? Of course, I had loungewear, but when I was a teen that consisted of basically my entire closet - comfy sweats, t-shirts, etc etc.

The girl in the Purple Dress

I absolutely love this purple dress. It was such a find on a Walmart Clearance rack that myself and two of my other good friends also have it! One day we're going to plan ahead and all wear it at the same time - just for giggles!
