Velvet Wrap Dress

Velvet Wrap Dress

Velvet Wrap Dress c/o | Beaded Heels | Purse (under $25) | Lipstick

There’s nothing quite like having a piece of clothing that was made for you. When I spotted this velvet wrap dress from eShakti I knew I needed to have it for this holiday season. It is so incredibly comfortable, and with eShakti’s customization options it is perfectly fitted to me. I love that I am able to select the perfect length for my height, sleeve option to make me comfortable, add pockets (which is always a yes), and even swap out the fabric to pick the perfect print or shade to match my style. I can’t wait to wear this to my hubby’s work Christmas party!

Happy weekend y’all! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and got some Black Friday shopping done. Since I’ve been home sick I ended up getting just about all my Christmas shopping done online. Today I’m heading out to get the rest of it done on Small Business Saturday. One of my favourite local small businesses is Olivia Rose, she has the cutest tulle skirts and tops for women and a large array of girls clothes which are also now available at Indigo (almost all her pieces are 25% off this weekend) and Hudson’s Bay. I love her store and watching her business grow over the years, and of course I love wearing her pieces – how perfect is this tulle skirt!?

Be sure to click on her links and check out the girls pieces if you have a little lady in your life, her pieces are seriously SO darling!

My Christmas Wishlist

Christmas Wishlist.png

1 | 2 | 3 |4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12

Honestly I am mostly posting this because my hubby has been asking me for a Christmas wishlist for the past couple weeks and I know this will be the easiest way to show him things I would like. I also know that some of you will be looking for gifts for a gal in your life and I like to think that these are some great ideas.

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2896640″]

  1. Cute workout pants – I love these two-toned cropped leggings, they would be great for both working out and for running errands after. I especially love that they’re high waist and ultra flattering even when you get overheated at Barre class and end up just wearing a sports bra – anyone else with me?
  2. An essential oil diffuser – I have had this on my wishlist for a while now. I love putting drops of lavender essential oil on my pillow before I go to sleep and when my neighbour brings hers over to our house it feels so calm and relaxing in our home. Not only are they good for relaxing and refreshing your home but some of the oils can also help with colds, which I need today 🙁
  3. Silk pillow case and eye mask – This is another one of those items that I have wanted for a while. I have some breakage along the crown of my head and have heard this will help with that. Fingers crossed!
  4. Gloves or Mittens – I lost a couple of pairs last year and could really use some new ones. Also, these ones are too dang cute!
  5. Hair Oil – Again, I have some breakage and find this hair oil really helps to smooth over damaged hair and any frizz.
  6. Cozy bow slippers – I hate wearing socks but love wearing slippers around the house. These adorable ones  would be perfect to replace the ones my puppies killed…
  7. CANDY! – If you haven’t tried the Sugarfina Champagne Gummy Bears yet, you need to! I am not usually much of a candy lover, chocolate and baked goods are usually my jam, but these are my absolutely favourite! Someone please put these in my stocking.
  8. Makeup Brushes – This set seems like a great value. I bought myself a pack like this about ten years ago and I still use it all the time. It was definitely a great purchase.
  9. Christmas Jammies – I LOVE getting a new pair of PJ’s at Christmas. I just think it’s so fun to have a new pair of jammies to wear on Christmas morning and these would be so dang cute!!
  10. Robe – Like the PJ’s I love a good cozy robe and any gal would appreciate this gift.
  11. A New Watch – A clean streamlined watch that can be worn with a multitude of outfits, yet still has some unique style to it is a great gift for any lady in your life.
  12. A Yoga Mat – A great gift for any lady in your life who loves yoga or barre….or who lost their mat recently…like me.

Plaid Love

Sweater | Plaid Skirt | Pom-Pom Heels | Similar Necklace | Similar Bracelet | Lipstick

Hi ya’ll, I hope your week is going well so far. Over the next month I’m going to be stepping up my blog game with more weekly posts so I can bring you the most holiday looks and gift guides possible between now and Christmas. If you have any requests for gift guides or looks, please leave them in the comments below.

Today’s holiday look is all about plaid. I have been loving it lately – well, basically this time every year haha. I always find I pull out my plaid skirts, which all happen to be from J.Crew, to take me from work to date night with J, or to special occasions like our family photos last year. What are your favourite pieces right now?

Getting Ready for the Holidays

Midi Skirt | Lace Top | Beaded Heels | Purse (under $25) | Earrings | Lipstick

This week we started singing Christmas carol’s around the office…mostly to annoy my colleague, I watched Elf last week, and last night it snowed! Oh, and I had my first (dairy free) peppermint mocha. I am full on into the holiday spirit now and so ready to start celebrating with a lineup of brunches, lunches, dinners, and nights out – and a few more viewings of my favourite Christmas movies. With all of these events passing by, and coming up, I am going to continue to share my outfits from many of these outings. I wore this outfit to a work event with Square One. I LOVE this bright red paired with the lace detailing on this blouse, it’s comfortable while still being fashionable. I also want to mention these fun shoes. I have said it once, but I will say it again, YOU NEED THESE HEELS! I bought them part way through the evening when my feet were swollen, blistered, and bleeding. I wore a pair of heels I bought a couple years back, and broke in, but was not having a good time with them. Desperate for some relief I headed into TopShop and snagged this pair. These heels are perfect for spending an evening on your feet plus they are so very cute and perfect for the holidays!

Holiday Home Decor

Holiday Home Decor.JPG

I asked on Instagram yesterday and more than 80% of you chose a holiday home decor post for today! Thank you for your feedback – I always love being able to provide you with posts that you want.

As you can see, my Christmas decor picks are very pink this year, with accents of gold and green. I am so excited to decorate this weekend and put together a full post on our holiday decor for this year. Josh is rolling his eye over how girly I am going with it, but I am not the least bit sorry – I am SO pumped to put this look together this year and to finally spend our first Christmas together in our home (Josh was on shift for the past two Christmas’s)

Cozy Yet Classy

Thanksgiving outfit-11.jpg

Knit Turtleneck | Blouse | Faux Leather Leggings | Heels | Purse

I hope you all had a great weekend. For us, it flew by with a set up day on Friday and gala event on Saturday. We snapped these photos shortly before heading to the venue to do some final checks before the event. When working busy weeks, like this past one, I like to stay comfy while looking professional and put together. I find the easiest way to achieve this look in the fall-winter months is with leather leggings and layering one of my favourite blouses with a cozy knit. It’s a simple yet stylish look that can easily take you from the office to a Thanksgiving dinner – stretchy pants are key.
