If there’s one thing that’s been consistent with my style since (dare I say it, high school), it’s been Timberlands. I’ve always loved classic Timbs. Although nowadays I’ll wear them in a slightly more feminine way. Back in the day I would have worn them with baggy camo pants but now I’m more into a girly way to wear Timberland boots. Note how I haven’t had to sacrificed the camo pant thanks to this lovely pair of Mavi camouflage jeans. Continue reading “A Girly Way to Wear Timberland Boots”
My absolute go to’s this Fall season for casual wear have been this pink lace up front sweater and distressed 7 for All Mankind jeans. Both pieces are beyond comfortable and I’ve pretty much been living in them. That being said, as cute as both pieces are, they make for a very casual outfit. Which I’m not against but I do prefer to be dressed up just a little bit. While I love pendant necklaces, I don’t typically wear them with lace up sweaters as I find them too distracting on the neckline. I feel that the lace up in itself is a statement therefore don’t want to draw any attention away from that. Continue reading “Floral Accents to Dress Up a Casual Outfit”
As I sit here and write this post I counted that it’s 43 days until Christmas. Now if you’re anything like me, you probably don’t want to hear that. Believe me neither do I. But every. single. year. I tell myself that I will NOT get caught up in a last minute hustle to buy gifts…and sure enough, there I am doing the mad scramble days before hoping I manage to get everything on time.
Every year the hubby and I say we’re going to start our holiday shopping at the beginning of November…well, it’s mid November now and I can’t say I’ve stored up a single thing. But, the good news is that I’ve been working with Dixie Outlet Mall on a fun little Holiday gift giving on a budget project and hopefully this post helps you out not only on timely holiday shopping, but especially if you’re working with a tight budget.

A few weeks ago I attended the Marcelle Revival + Skin Renewal launch event and got to leave home with samples from the new line. As someone in their early 30’s I am no stranger to the importance of taking care of one’s skin preventatively in order to combat the onset of signs of aging. Years ago I was advised by a nurse who was well versed on skincare that one shouldn’t wait for the onset of fine lines and wrinkles to start an anti-aging regiment. Everything she said made sense as I had already begun to notice a degradation of elasticity, firmness and most noticeably of all – hydration, so further prevention seemed like a great idea.

Give me military anything and I’m in. The military theme has always been a favourite of mine so naturally when Pinkstix released their military crossbody bag I had to add it to my Fall lineup. And if you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know that I love a good juxtaposition hence why this look is styled with feminine accents instead of a more masculine vibe. The warm taupe is a great colour for fall and I appreciate the easy to access interior compartment for cell phone storage. Now you can’t tell from the photos, but the bag has a leopard lining which just makes me smile every time I open the flap. Sucker for leopard print too…but really who isn’t!?
