{Fashion Fridays} Neutralize it

Happy Fashion Friday!

Today is all about adding and layering neutrals to an outfit. I’m a super fan of this. Wednesday’s outfit below is the proof in the pudding. Soft neutrals on top with fun, bold prints (J Crew) on the bottom. Get into mixing prints here by adding a leopard peep-toe pump!

For more on mixing prints, check out a recent {Fashion Fridays} post on it here.

White on white - layer it up!

You can also do neutral all around and pump up the colour in your accessories (below: Fischer Street). Rooftop for a glass of vino anyone?

Obsessed with white denim.

No but seriously, could I? Adorable office outfit (depending where you work, of course) that is perfect for day to evening!

With love, go rock neutrals and whites this weekend.

Today’s post is dedicated to a Happy Long Weekend of sunshine, patio drinks and relaxation. Here are a few of our faves to kick off the weekend…


Love me some Lavender.

Flowers in your drink? Why yes! There is a cute little tin of edible lavender flowers staring at me every time the cupboard door opens. I found these at Olive & Olives after a long hunt for some Lavender Shortbread (which by the way, were a HUGE hit on Valentine’s Day). Now I have another use for it! Lavender Limemade.

Slushy, slushy, slushy.

This yummy Riesling Strawberry Slushy is from one of my all time favourite bloggers, Lisa Thiele (tee-lee) from With Style and Grace. She has so many goodies on her blog, plus, they’re gluten free!

That’s all for now. Happy Thursday! Happy Victoria Day Long Weekend!

{Fashion Fridays} Travel Bug

Just back this week from an UH-MAZING trip with some of the most inspiring women I know. Probably should have blogged about this before leaving, but I’ve got the travel bug in me now!

Packing light can be a challenge…I blame it on the shoes. While the outfits below don’t cut down on the shoes, here are few items that are sure to take you from casual day to date with the girls.

Tip: Come up with a solid base. Get creative with the accessories!

From day...

From day…

...into night!

Coral lips totally count as a base. I’m obsessed with this look. Never too much beauty in a coral lip (day or night!). Check out some more of my fave coral lips looks here in {Fashion Fridays} The Coral Lip.

What are your tips for traveling fashionably?
