The other evening I was window shopping at Chanel, peeking through the glass admiring the “Boy Bag”. It’s lovely shape, gorgeous leather, glistening gold shoulder chain and iconic symbol all taunting me. It was at that exact moment I decided to take the plunge and purchase the bag I have been coveting for months. I entered the shop, approached a charming salesclerk and just as I was at the counter preparing to make my purchase…..I woke up. A total dream, but one I need to part ways with. Will I ever own my dream handbag? One never knows. I see it featured on several of my favorite reads and it has been a “covet worthy” item time and time again. The Chanel will always hold a special place in my heart.
Now, officially on the rebound from my “relationship” with the Boy Bag I discovered the new love of my life, the Ranger. This I told myself is definitely The One! Given its lush red leather and similar style to the Chanel, I was able to put my past love behind me and move on. With so many gorgeous designer handbags out there, which bag is your absolute dream handbag? Thank you so much for your comments!
Cynthia Rowley skirt (similar here and here, Jacob top, Banana Republic bag (Similar here in different color), Zara heels
When I purchased this top, my first thought was to pair it with a brown skirt or pants as I tend to gravitate towards a matched look when it comes to wearing brown. Brown and black were opponents in my closet though I am not sure why, as brown can be just as versatile as black when combined with other colors. In deciding to give this pairing a go, my Cynthia Rowley skirt and Jacob top were the perfect start. What is your favorite color to wear with brown? Thank you for your comments!
Hello Friday! It seems like only yesterday I was posting my weekly favorites from Pinterest, and here I am again. Friday also means the weekend has arrived and I can look forward to enjoying some downtime and plan to do something, or nothing at all over Saturday and Sunday. This weekend I know that baking is a definite after discovering this recipe on one of my favorite reads. It looks super yummy so hopefully I can replicate that yumminess! Depending on the weather getting to the beach or enjoying coffee outside at my favorite cafe may also be in the cards. Oh the possibilities the weekend brings. Oops totally went off topic here, back to Pinterest! This week my favorites captured my interest for a variety of reasons. Those gorgeous black boots and cute handbag, perfect. Really great neutral flats that look super comfy. Boyfriend jeans with heels and a black tee, simple look to style. The sweetest dress, clutch and statement necklace all with a boho vibe, beautiful. Relaxed style in loose-fitting top, culottes, shoulder bag and flats, would be nice for work. An easy hairstyle, yes please, and finally 5 ways to look more stylish, simple fashion advice. Hope you find a little inspiration as well in my choices this week. Thank you for reading and for taking the time to comment, I truly appreciate it. Have a great weekend!
I know that Fridays are normally reserved for denim in the workplace, but I could not resist pairing this Old Navy soft blue chambray shirt with a simple black work skirt. Less casual buttoned up I paired my shirt with a belt, heels and my new Favorite bag. What do you think of this alternative to business wear look? Thank you so much for your comments!
With so many things scheduled into life day-to-day, I find that sticking to any sort of regular fitness regime can be a struggle. Lately I have been ignoring the call of the gym or any other fitness related activities and opting for my comfy sofa and latest episodes of my favorite shows. That was until recently, when collecting my mail, the Athleta catalogue totally caught my eye. If you are looking for stylish fitness wear, this site has it all. Here are a few of the pieces I am currently craving and that may just inspire me to get out to run/yoga class again. What do you think of my choices? Thank you so much for your comments!
With Fall still upon us, my favorites this week all relate to achieving great Fall style. A closet clean-out is a good place to start. What to keep, what to give away, what needs to be altered and what pieces to add. Some great inspiration in the top five street style trends and 25 It-Bags for fall. My other favorites are perfect examples of simple casual looks for Fall with denim, cozy sweaters and smart coats all nicely styled. Hope you find some inspiration from my choices heading into your Saturday. Have a great weekend!
A cute black blazer for me is a great alternative to pairing a sweater with denim. I purchased this one on sale and love its versatility. On this day in over 80 degree heat (yep my neighbours think I’m crazy) I quickly took a few photos to share this easy look with you. I chose to wear it here with a plain linen top, jeans and boots, but in a cooler climate I would layer a warmer top underneath and pair full on socks with my boots. The garden has become my backdrop for my photos lately but I promise to escape it soon and share some other locations. Thank you so much for commenting!
The weather where I live is crazy warm right now so it is tough to post through the different seasons. My season basically remains the same year round. Although we do have a “winter”, style changes are limited to darker nail colour, boots and the odd sweater or jacket. With all the great fall fashion featured everywhere I realize how much I miss it. Recently when I was in Zara I purchased some basic black trousers that can go from here, paired with lighter pieces, to home, where I can wear them with boots and a knit sweater. For this look I paired them with a top from H&M along with one of my favorite statement necklaces from Forever 21. What is your favorite piece of clothing to transition between seasons/climates? Thank you so much for commenting!
I am very excited about my favorite Pins this week as they all encompass one timeless piece of fashion, the moto jacket. Each of these Pins caught my eye and had me seeking out my current covet. Whether it’s Topshop, ASOS, Madewell, Shopbop, Danier Leather or Urban Outfitters (to name just a few), there are plenty of options out there. My preference is the universally favorite black leather, but the various non-leather and coloured leather versions are just as cool. I imagine mine with skirts, jeans, even shorts, but the styling options are endless. Have you added one to your wardrobe? Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. Have an amazing weekend!
I have a favorite book shop I always visit when I am home that offers more than just books. I could mooch about in it for hours! On my last visit I spotted this cute clutch. I love the shade of blue and words embossed on it. For a smart casual look I have paired it here with a comfy white shirt, my favorite skinny jeans and heels.
