camel and denim

26.11.18






Camel to me has become the quintessential colour of fall. And I'm trying to hold onto fall for a little while longer! So guys, there is no shame in my game! I've been wearing these jeans non-stop. I have them in two different washes and I think i wear them probably six out of seven days of the week. The other day, I'm most likely in black jeans for a change, or in pajamas chilling at home. I'm a firm believer in buying two of a piece if you really love something. I've done it with jeans, t-shirts, sweaters and I've never regretted it.

On another note, happy shopping on this Cyber Monday! There have been so many shopping guides from bloggers so I'm sure you know where the best deals are. Though I didn't do any of that, I think I'm going to do holiday gift guides and have them up starting next week. Let me know if you have any specifics you'd like to see! Also, I have a collaboration this week with a shapewear brand and I'm really excited about it. One of the questions I get asked the most is which shapewear I like the best so I'm excited to share it with you ladies that are interested!

         

     

knits and plaids

19.11.18




Happy Monday! I got this coat last year and I'm still super in love with it this year. I don't think the plaid trend is going anywhere. Just like skinny jeans and and block heels, I'm pretty sure this is going to be a staple in our closets. The thing with trends is that it doesn't really matter if something comes and goes, if it fits well and is tailored to your body, it will always be in style. So my biggest advice while shopping right now - because let's face, it, we all shop for ourselves too while we're out doing the Christmas shopping; the sales are just too good - is to focus on fit. So you can still gravitate towards the trends like florals and plaid, but remember that it will only go the distance if it fits well. Proper fit equals chic. And chic is always in!

I've always loved the look of a pretty coat or blazer caped over the shoulders. It looks so luxurious. So while I walked down the street with this coat properly on, I wanted to be a little extra while posing for these photos. I felt quite fabulous, I must admit! I wore this chunky turtleneck knit under with some raw hem jeans and white booties. I wore this sweater on my Instagram stories recently and got so many questions about it. It's like two year old Joe Fresh! It's no longer available, but I linked all similar looks below. Also, I've gotten requests to share my size in everything I wear so here it is below!

the belted blazer

16.11.18





Cheers! We've made it to the weekend! It's been a long week, so I'm looking forward to maybe sleeping in and things slowing down... I wish! Julien is approaching two and day by day is becoming more of a little raging psychopath. An adorable, sweet raging psychopath. It's all about balance, right? A little meltdown in a cafe here, and then hugs and 'thank you mama' there.

I love a good blazer (check out my IGTV video on nine ways to style a plaid blazer). I got this double breasted blazer last year from H&M and it's probably my most coveted blazer. What I love most about it is that it's cinched in at the waist so it gives that va va voom effect, especially with a belt. I love pairing something so classic with these distressed jeans because it brings a little edge to the look. An unlikely combo is always refreshing. There's that balance thing again! I hope you have a good weekend!

This blazer is old, but here are some similar ones linked below! And you can check some out here.
