A Girly Way to Wear Timberland Boots

cold shoulder blouse with camo jeans and gucci sunnies

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”

Floral Accents to Dress Up a Casual Outfit

Floral Accents to Dress Up a Casual Outfit

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”

Holiday Gift Giving on a Budget

Holiday Gift Giving on a Budget with Dixie Outlet Mall

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.

Marcelle Revival + Skin Renewal Launch

Marcelle Revival + Skin Renewal

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.  Continue reading “Marcelle Revival + Skin Renewal Launch”

Military and Fall Florals

Pinkstix military crossbody bag

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!?  Continue reading “Military and Fall Florals”
