OOTD - Blush Pink Bodysuit

Wednesday, 28 September 2016

Can you notice a trend for me? I've been borderline obsessed with the colour blush pink, and it's an addiction that's carried me all through summer and now well into fall.  When I saw this light-coloured bodysuit from Dynamite, I knew that it had to make it's way into my collection.  I love the colour, as it's more on the nude side of things, and it pairs so well with this black high-waisted mini skirt.  Add a pair of white kicks to keep things from looking too 'club wear' and you're good to go!

I'm not huge into jewelry; I usually like to keep things to one item per outfit and for that reason, I like for that one item to be really special. This gorgeous floral watch from Olivia Burton is such a special piece and is always a conversation started - I mean, who doesn't love flowers!

I just wanted to take some time to chat about this Hieleven blush pink bucket bag.  This is, without a doubt, one of my absolute favourite bags and I'm still in awe of the quality for the price point. For a genuine leather bag, in such an on-trend colour to be in the $100.00 range is amazing. The leather itself is coated and makes the bag very low-maintenance, so it's perfect for Fall when it can go from sunny to raining in an instant.

What do you think? Do you guys have a colour, and seem to gravitate towards it? Let me know!

OOTD - Blush Pink For Fall

Monday, 26 September 2016

Now that the air has definitely cooled, I think that it's safe to say that Fall has arrived. Not wanting to do-away with my summer wardrobe just yet, I've been relying on old tips and tricks to transition warm-weather pieces into autumn. For example, option for a longer hem in my skirt. The midi skirt is a great transitional piece to keep in your wardrobe as it keeps your legs warm during those cool mornings, but you're able to breath once the temperatures rise in the afternoon.  Pair this entire outfit with a leather jacket and you're ready for whatever temperatures this crazy time of year will throw at you!

OOTD - What I Wore To The Nordstrom Gala

Friday, 23 September 2016

Happy Friday Noobs! Those of you that follow me on Instagram saw that I had recently attended the Nordstrom Gala, to celebrate the fact that Nordstrom has finally opening its first location in Toronto, in the CF Eaton Centre.  The night was absolutely incredible and I had so much fun exploring this exciting new additiona to Toronto retail.  For the gala, I kept my look simple with a sleek white dress and my favourite pair of "going out" pumps. Add a pink bag and some killer curls and I was ready to party the night away!

A HUGE shoutout to Alicia from The Queens Shoppe who blowdried and curled my hair to perfection. I could not stop staring at myself as I left the salon and basically emptied out my collection of dry shampoo trying to extend this style as long as I possibly could. It's safe to say that I have found my go-to girl when it comes to big-occasion hairstyles.  If you're in the Toronto area, definitely give The Queens Shoppe salon a try!

What do you guys think? Are you into the pseudo-Marilyn Monroe look? What do you wear on big nights out? Let me know!
