Sunday Feels

There have been some really crazy weather changes going on where I’m from. A few weekends ago, it went from a summer-like Saturday to a chilly and dark Sunday. When the weather drastically takes a turn for the worst, I always want to dress comfortably in clothes that are good for lounging on the couch…

Patterns for Professionals

This month has been so insane, I felt like it would never end. I had a ton of meetings and had to dress professionally for all of them. Normally ultra professional wear seems to equate to black, black, and more black. The winter blues hit me pretty hard though and I could not stand the thought…

Oscars Best Dressed

I wait all year for the Oscars. I love to see the glamour that Hollywood’s A-listers bring to the red carpet. This year had some definite stars for me, but overall I felt it was a little lacklustre. Personally, I was really feeling the reds, golds, and whites that were making their way to the…

Sweater by the Sea

The winter is still raging on with tons of snow still being dumped daily. I wanted to feel that much colder, so I decided to take a trip to the water. (It’s not actually the sea, just one of the Great Lakes). Anyways, my boyfriend and I went out to a small waterside town and…

Valentine’s Day

Whether you are going to spend Valentine’s Day with a partner or friends or even alone, you should look super glam. Glam on this loveliest day of love includes tones of red and pink with hair and makeup all done up in just the right way. I personally never wear warm colours (red, orange, yellow, etc),…

What’s In in Outerwear

Being in a professional program, sometimes I have to sacrifice warmth for style or “business appropriate attire”. On crappy days where the weather dips below freezing and the rain can’t decide if it wants to be snow or not, I am always tempted to grab my North Face parka that still has my ski tags…

Foggy Sunday

Yesterday was unbelievably foggy, like Gotham city level foggy or British country side in Atonement foggy. It was nice because I was stuck inside for most of the day studying. I did go out for a coffee break though and it was unseasonably warm out. Warm enough that freezing cold me didn’t need a coat….

Winter Coats

Unfortunately it is still winter. I am one of those people that after the Christmas season is done, I am ready for winter to bid adieu and make way for spring. To my dismay, this never seems to be the case (remember I do live in Canada AKA in an igloo). I am also chronically cold…

Challenge

So, my being in the MBA program forced me out a job and my bank account has shriveled up in response to no cash inflow and lots of cash outflow from the holiday gift buying for others (and holiday sale shopping for myself). I have decided to challenge myself to not spending money on anything…

Back to Business (School)

In case anyone hasn’t read my immensely interesting “About Me” page, which does not attract as much traffic as one might think, I am in business school. Actually, to be more specific I am in my Masters of Business Administration. Being in this program requires a semi-strict dress code, semi strict because we can be…

Golden Globes

Wowza. The fashion last night was so en pointe. I loved that all the celebrities brought their A-game from head to toe with so many different colours and embellishments, it was seriously beautiful. There were some bold trends that really stuck out: yellow, pink tones, black and white to mention a few. Some of my…

Dress Down Button Up

Today was a very special day- my boyfriend and I went looking at engagement rings. I wanted to look put together, but also I wanted to be warm and comfortable since it is still very cold. Oval, princess, emerald, and on and on. It is pretty exhausting looking, but we were able to narrow down…
