Outings with the hubby are even better when I’m sporting some local love. Vintage florals from @ygkstudios and these earrings are my latest fav. Created by @sherryjeffery.artist, a talented Kingston maker who creates everything right here with her own two hands. Swipe 👉 for a closer look at this fierce pair, that also goes so easily with just about anything (I styled them with my spiky necklace, cus I’m wild like that).

Consider this post my official protest, Mother Nature. What is with the April ice storm? Geeze! So Canadian, not cute. Vent complete. ⠀
You’ll find me drinking hot tea in fuzzy socks perusing old photos from Jamaica while I count down to our next little tropical getaway. T-20...🐠 🌴☀️

How are you hunkering down? Happy hibernating friends. .

As things finally begin to slow and settle down, I can go back to having Indian food date nights with the hubby, in dark florals of course (see last post for my latest obsession). Bring the spring please! .

Hooray for the long weekend!
Dark floral pieces are one of my secret weapons this time of year. I love to sneak in some spring, even when it’s still a little chilly. It’s the perfect way to transition your look without being too excitable and jumping right into sandals. ⠀
It also makes for great Easter weekend wear if you’re celebrating. What are your plans? Travel? Relaxing? Whatever it is, just be sure to incorporate lots of chocolate 🍫😋

Hoppy Easter 🐇🐰 ⠀

For the past several weeks, the hubby and I have gone full-gear into home buying mode. We’ve been living in a condos for years and it’s time for a little more space. Including a much-wanted large closet, decent yard and more places to store all our cat hair (my favourite accessory, lol) 😹🌷👗 ⠀
Little did we know, house hunting would become an all-encompassing crazy wild ride in a racing market. Thankfully, we’ve got some people who we love and trust who are guiding us along the way. Grateful for the journey as I know that love will make any house we end up buying a home, right? Well, I’m excited so you’ll all have to put up with my cheese. ☺️ 🧀 ⠀
All I know is, it sure has been challenging to juggle a thousand priorities. Work, blog, general adulting, you know? Got any tips for staying organized? Share your wisdom, oh time management masters. 🙌

But, amongst the chaos, I have discovered that house hunting is a great excuse for spontaneous photos ops in new places. Thanks hubby ❤️📸 .

When you’ve had such a busy week, it’s only fair to have a sassy Saturday.

So, let’s throw it back to that time I styled a super fun photo shoot with @knitwhitscouture, had a whole rack of fabulous pieces, but still stole a dress and heels (a la @winners of course) from my fellow model @katkryza to style this particular look. 😝☺️

So, I guess I’m always sassy. Ah well, enjoy your weekend and happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Sunday, keep it easy. Relax and if necessary, cheat... ⠀
Accidentally shrink your husband’s shirt in the wash? Don’t waste it, wear it instead. Perfectly comfy weekend wear. ⠀
Forgot to wash your hair? Spray a little dry shampoo and give it a twist. An up-do looks better with a collared shirt anyway. ⠀
Don’t think you have the right bling to jazz up that masculine shirt? You just might. Turns out that necklace you bought for your wedding day actually works perfectly. ⠀
Sometimes looking put together is a matter of cheating a little and finding ways to make it work. But shh, don’t tell anyone.

International Women’s Day. A day of reflection. But, THIS year is different.

Because this year, the conversation is continuous. We spoke of women’s issues yesterday, and we’ll still be talking about it tomorrow.

Why? Because intelligent discourse, debate and discussion is the first step towards progress. ⠀
Thank you to the warriors out there who are driving the movement, raising their voices and demanding change. ⠀
Today is just one day, keep talking, keep listening, keep marching on, each and everyday. ⠀
And if you want to do it in bright bold heels too, I’m all for it.

Casual weekend vibes. ⠀
Same backpack, same booties, same city (Toronto, last weekend). ⠀
For a quick overnight getaway you don’t really need to pack multiple shoes and purses. You just need to plan ahead! Choose pieces you can dress up or down to keep packing to a minimum. Oh, and if it’s grey and rainy, a little pop of colour does the trick. ⠀
Got any packing tricks of your own? Please do share...

Happy Saturday! .

As many of you probably saw, I spent this past weekend gallivanting around Toronto. Always nice to visit the city I lived in for so many years, especially when it’s to see the Tony award-winning play Come From Away. I could make this entire post about how phenomenal this production is, but I’ll just tell you that I spent 4 years studying the arts and this may have been the best play I have EVER seen. Like, ever.

Check out my TravelSTRUCK insta story highlight above to see more of this look and some silly boomerags…

This is what I wore strutting around the city streets pre and post play while breaking my own fashion rules. Normally, I would tell you that your jacket should be about the same length, if not longer, than the outfit you’re sporting underneath. I just find it’s usually an easy way to look put-together while outside. But the shape of this pea-coat and skirt complement one another, so I think it works in this case. ⠀
Do you agree? Disagree? Yay or nay!? Are there any fashion rules you break? ⠀

This scarf goes with everything, including suede over-knee boots and patterned tights. Fun and done. ✌️♥️ ⠀
Happy Family Day long-weekend to my fellow local folks (and President’s Day to my friends in the US) .

Oh Valentine’s Day. You either love it, or hate it. Regardless of your status and how you choose to celebrate (or not celebrate) I hope your day is filled with love!

If you need a little lovely inspiration for this warm and fuzzy day, my blog’s homepage carousel has been updated with my favourite valentine’s related content, including our love story (dramatic, and straight out of a romantic comedy). Link in bio as per usual.

Almost 4 years in, and I am ever so grateful to have this man in my life, who fills each and every day with love. On top of all the wonderful things he does for me on the daily, he also often takes the photos you see posted here, in case you’ve ever wondered. Somehow, I even convinced him to make an appearance in my insta-story today, a rare sighting…

But just because it’s v-day, it doesn’t mean I’m going to plaster a bunch of mushy stuff all over here. Love and relationships can’t be boiled down to heart-shaped chocolate. For us, our marriage has only improved as the years have passed. We used to fight more, and communicate less. You help one another grow, become better people, and evolve. Most importantly, you do it together.

Every marriage and partnership is different. What is special about yours? ⠀
