Hello, Yellow!


Hello everyone!

It’s been a looong time since I last posted, so I’m here to give you a little life update.

1. I got a cat! We rehomed him a few months ago. We named him Lupin after Remus Lupin from Harry Potter. He loves to follow us around the house and play with his tunnels. He is the first real pet I’ve ever had, and honestly the adjustment hasn’t been as difficult as I thought it would be. If you check my Insta Stories you will see him make quite a few appearances. It turns out I’m kind of a cat lady.

2. I got, and recovered from, severe cystic acne. I think this one deserves its own post, so I won’t go into too many details right now. But this is one of the reasons I’ve been a bit AWOL.

3. I started taking more time for myself. For the past three and a half years I’ve worked two jobs. I really enjoyed them both, but it also meant that I was working seven days a week. I finally reached the realization that this just wasn’t sustainable for me and my happiness, so I decided to leave my second job and spend more time with my family. I now have time to run errands, exercise, read, and get enough sleep.

4. I cut my hair! I’ve had long hair for the past ten years, and I really did love it. But after it took me almost an hour just to wash and brush my hair one day (I didn’t even brush it), I knew I was absolutely ready to make a big change. I cut off over a foot of hair and I haven’t looked back since. My morning routine is so much easier and I no longer have to worry about setting aside enough time to wash my hair.

I think that’s it for updates!

This yellow sweater is an absolute gem! Yellow is my happy colour. Every time I wear it I feel like I can take on anything. This sweater is particularly fantastic because it’s comfortable and it’s from a company that values sustainable, high quality fabrics. I’ve purchased a few items from them and they’ve all exceeded my expectations. This is not sponsored, by the way, I just really love their products. The yellow colour is sold out, but I’ve linked the same sweater in lilac.











Thank you so much for reading! Let me know what topics you would like to see me cover in the comments.



Embroidered Denim


One of my favourite trends for spring and summer is embroidered denim. The embroidery instantly elevates your basic outfit and turns it into something a little more unique. I absolutely love this pair of Pilcro jeans from Anthropologie. They are so comfortable! I love to pair them with a basic tee and Converse sneakers when I’m running errands or going out with friends.

P.S. If you are looking for a pair of skinny jeans as opposed to the boyfriend cut that I’m wearing, I would recommend this pair from Free People. And if you’re interested in trying the trend, but don’t want to break your budget, you could try this vest from Forever 21.

Fifties Flair

yellow dress (7)_edited

I am so excited to talk to you about my experience shopping with http://www.eshakti.com. While browsing eShakti’s selection of dresses, I fell head over heels for this 1950’s inspired frock. I absolutely love the fit and flare style and the gorgeous hue. What really impressed me about eShakti was that nearly every element of this dress was customizable. I was able to have the dress tailored to my exact measurements and I adjusted the length to hit at my knee. I was also given the option to change the sleeves and eliminate the pockets on the dress. I chose to keep those two elements the same. The dress arrived really quickly and I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the garment. I would definitely order from eShakti again!

The Old and the New

earrings, necklace, shawl, dress, bag, shoes

This outfit is all about incorporating the old with the new. I purchased these earrings, necklace, and shawl over a year ago, and I have been wearing them on repeat ever since. The items I have linked are not exact, but they are very similar to the pieces I am wearing. I purchased this bag a few months back and I have used it almost every day since. I love that it can hold everything that I need to tote to and from work while making me feel like a modern day Mary Poppins. This dress and these shoes are newer additions to my closet, but I love that they fit in so well with my existing wardrobe.

Comfy and Cozy

There is hardly anything I love more than the holiday season. What’s better than spending time with family, eating more food than you thought possible, and watching movies galore? Not much!

This sweater is the best way to stay cozy during those chilly winter days. I paired this sweater with a fun toque and a comfy pair of jeans. These shoes are no longer available, but I’ve linked a similar pair.

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas!

Layers on Layers

I LOVE Halloween. I’ve been reading mystery novels and watching scary movies all month, which may have inspired my outfit for this post. With my orange nailpolish and long black layers, I’m ready to join the Addam’s family. This tunic is one of my favourite pieces, I love the asymmetrical hemline. I paired it with this scarf, which is so incredibly soft, and this super versatile hat. The jeans and booties that I’m wearing are old favourites, but I’ve linked very similar pieces.

Fur Stole

fur stole, earrings, necklacedress, boots

 I found the perfect accessory! This faux fur stole by local designer The Cross Fox Design is a must have for fall and winter. A fur collar instantly glams up any outfit, and this piece is super versatile. Not only is this piece incredibly stylish, it is also warm, soft and luxurious. I paired it with this comfy, casual dress from Anthropologie and a pair of navy boots.
