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 […]

greyscale 

            Some of my favourite looks are totally devoid of colour like this one. Grey and black are just so easy to pull together and if you do it right with unexpected textures or details you can sill stand out without any bold hues. These grey boots are probably the best example […]

canadiana 

                  Some days it’s good to just be cozy and warm. Those are days for flannel shirts, silky jersey tops and jeans with a lot of stretch in them. Put on some sunglasses to cover those tired eyes and go!  I love a good plaid and this one has been kicking around […]

graphic tee

I don’t own a lot of t-shirts, but this one from the guys section at Value Village is just oversized and long enough. It was actually warm enough today to wear this. No sweater! I paired the t-shirt with a blazer and heels to make it a bit less causal. Plus it’s all black and […]
