It’s Time To Bust Out The Summer Clothes

The first half of the year has flown by, and while I barely remember where some of those months went I am so excited to finally enjoy the warmer weather and to bust out the summer clothes. I am feeling stripes and solids, denim and white and summer dresses in every colour imaginable. I am also focusing on me and self care as I hope that you are as well – YOU ARE WORTH IT!!! Take some time to do whatever you need to do to feel balanced, happy and your best and don’t forget to drink tons of water, apply sunscreen and wear clothes that make you happy. Here is my mood board for June:

Dream Home

I suddenly realized a couple of weeks ago that it was already May and I could barely remember the last few months.  Nothing traumatic had happened for the weeks and months to fly by for me but, I had done something that I normally try to avoid – I had gotten so caught up in the random everyday stresses of life that I had lost sight of the bigger picture. I was focusing on things that really didn’t deserve so much attention and I needed to hit the reset button. So in an effort to get back on track I have been taking some time to just dream, breathe and reconnect with what makes me happy and, what I would like to achieve in my life long term.

As many of you may know, I love interiors and architecture (some may even say that I am a little obsessed) so much of the time that I spent dreaming involved where I would like to live long term.  And today’s dream home is positively swoon-worthy.

My Favourite Closet Staple

Hi Everyone!

according to the calendar it is finally spring, and while in reality the cold weather has decided to stick around a little longer (as I write this, it is currently pouring ice rain and snow is expected shortly) I am ready to start shedding a few layers of clothing.  Closet staples are a personal thing that depend on your lifestyle and fashion needs but there are a few key items that work in most people’s wardrobe – a white t-shirt and a well fitting pair of jeans are  perfect examples of this.  Then there is my favourite closet staple – a white dress shirt.  This key item has the ability to elevate any look that you may be rocking, be it classic, sexy, conservative or modern to name a few.  I prefer my dress shirts to be loose fitting so that I can easily half tuck it into jeans or dress pants.  Here are a few of my favourite looks featuring the white dress shirt:

Inspiring Interior

Hi Everyone!

I love discovering designers and beautiful spaces on Instagram, which is exactly where I discovered the designer of today’s Inspiring Interior. I was especially excited to discover Montana LaBelle’s work because she is Canadian just like me.

Located in Toronto, this Lytton Park residence is elegant and modern perfection. The bright white walls contrast perfectly with the darker touches and details such as the beautiful banister, frames and black grout in the bathroom (which I am particularly obsessed with).   Contrasting marble in the kitchen, the light filled living room and floating bed in the bedroom sharply elevate the fabulous factor of this home. Love! Love! Love!  Here are some of my favourite pictures of this gorgeous home.

Street Style Favourites From Copenhagen Fashion Week A/W 18

This past week was Copenhagen Fashion Week for A/W 2018 and not surprisingly all of my favourite Scandinavian fashion girls came out in true form.  There was a lot of plaid, wide leg pants and bright colours effortlessly tempered with florals, denim, fur and leather for looks as swoon worthy as Copenhagen itself.  Here are a few of my favourite street style looks from Copenhagen this past week:
