uniform

For the past year and a half, I have had a predominantly black dress code at work. Prior to that grey was my ride or die, but not being able to wear it at my job brought things to a stand still. As you know I’m a firm believer in having multi-purpose clothes, which really just ended up meant […]

april showers 

               After all that beautiful sunshine, we are back to a typical Vancouver spring. The much cooler temperatures and looming rain clouds are a rough reminder that the summer preview we’d been having was all too temporary. On the bright side, this reality check is making me even more excited for my trip […]

jean genie 

            As a Canadian, it’s pretty much a given I have zero aversion to the denim on denim trend we’ve been seeing for the past few years. I especially love it when a trend comes along that is built on basics most people have in their closet already! Simply take your favourite […]

spring neutrals

         As the fashion world loves to remind us, spring is the time for florals, pastels and all things feminine. It’s easy to get swept up in the sartorial splendour with the changing of the seasons, but it’s also unnecessary. You can welcome the warm(ish) weather in other ways, like by putting together […]

linen

            Linen is such a summer material. It’s lightweight and gives that casual cool vibe since it’s impossible to keep wrinkle free! As much as I love fabrics that keep their shape so I don’t have to iron, linen is one of the few materials that’s better when you make peace with […]

making culottes casual

         Although I love these pants (and they are as comfy as wearing sweats!) I had mainly been using them as work attire until now. I like to think I invest in versatile pieces, so it was time to build them into something more casual this past long weekend. Plaid is a great […]

spring essentials now 

         I know it’s only just February, but I’m in the mood for spring already. And sometimes on days like today, Vancouver humours me and plays along. Though it may not be warm enough to get away with no jacket and bare legs for long, there are lots of spring pieces you can […]

Mock Neck

         You know I love my turtlenecks, but there is a certain amount of fussing around that goes with them. Is the cowl folded over right? Does this look like a neck brace? That kind of thing. No such problems with a mock neck top like this! Although the last time I wore […]

knit culottes

         I think I found something more comfortable than sweats…these knitted culottes are amazing. I keep referring to them as “leg sweaters” which maybe isn’t the most flattering but is pretty accurate. They may be cropped, but since they’re made of merino wool they are still nice and cozy. My one word of advice […]

2016

      I know most of you probably have a dress picked out for tonight, but if you’re like me and still on the fence about what to wear, here’s another idea. Instead of going for a girly, glamorous look, why not create a more relaxed menswear inspired outfit to dance the night away in? […]
