leather pants 

Leather pants are one of those surprise staples you never know you need until you try. I wear them 10x more than I wear regular leggings, because they are just as easy but make me feel hot instead of lazy. They are best with cozy sweaters, but can be dressed up for work with a […]

sexy back 

   There is just something special about a seemingly office appropriate dress that surprises you with a fantastic cut out back. I’m all about multi-use, and this dress takes me from work (with a sleeveless blazer) right into dinner or drinks without batting an eyelash. It’s lady-like but also a little flirty. The pattern even […]

home again, home again

         I’m sitting in my living room in Vancouver after 8 glorious days in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. The whole trip was awesome – we got a lot of sunshine, some crazy beautiful storms and most importantly so much relaxing. I read 4 books, wore barely any make-up, and ate an astronomical amount […]

it’s all white

You’ve already seen me rock these white, ripped up jeans here but I’ve been seeing a lot of all white looks out there for spring and wanted to wear my own today. I mentioned in the last post I often pair these pants with a longer, loose shirt as I have done here. I decided […]

spring layers

Today was the perfect temperature. You can feel the spring warmth in the air, and I spent some quality time in the park enjoying it with my boyfriend and our dog. I wanted to have bare legs, but needed more coverage and coziness up top. This sweater is lightweight cotton but does the job nicely. […]
