Mixing Feminine & Edgy

Wednesday, May 25, 2016

Today I'm back with another shoe pick from Le Chateau - this time battling the crazy wind in a pair of suede pointy toe pumps in taupe. Pointy toe pumps haven't been on my radar, but when I saw these recently at Le Chateau I fell in love with the cutout trim detailing. They also come in cobalt and coral and you can grab them here. For this look I took a subtle approach in mixing edgy and feminine. The flowy floral blouse serves as the perfect feminine touch, while the white cross body bag and distressed denim give it that edge factor. 

Stay Blissful!:-)

Stand Out

Sunday, May 22, 2016

Happy Sunday everyone! It's Victoria Day long weekend here in BC so it will be nice to have tomorrow off so Chase and I can spend some time together. If the weather is good, we may head to the beach for the day and hopefully get a shoot in!

I don't have a lot of violet pieces in my wardrobe, so when I came across this light and airy top, I couldn't resist adding it to my summer top collection (it's currently on sale and less than $50!). And it just so happened to go perfectly with my new blue suede purse from Zara. To finish off the look, I added a gorgeous pair of pewter heels, metallic sunglasses, and dark distressed boyfriend jeans. An outfit like this would be perfect for a fun night out with your girlfriends! 

Hope everyone has an awesome week and thanks so much for stopping by and reading!

Stay Blissful! :-)

Bare Shoulders

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Off the shoulder tops are one of many trends I was very excited to try this season. I've always admired the way they look on other people, but given that I've always been a little insecure about my wide shoulders, it wasn't a trend I immediately jumped on. I actually find them sort of awkward to wear, and personally I think they take some time to get use to.

I really like this particular one by Lord & Taylor because the back has an adorable keyhole tie closure and can easily be adjusted, allowing the top to actually stay in place. I typically only wear off the shoulder tops on days I don't plan on doing much running around, as I find they aren't always the most comfortable. Either way, I love how cute they look and really look forward to getting some more this Spring/Summer.

What's your thoughts on off the shoulder tops? Let me know in the comments below!

Glam Date Night with Pink Martini

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

Chase and I haven't had a date night in a while, so last week we decided that we would head out for dinner at a nearby Greek restaurant. I ended up wearing this gorgeous white and navy dress, paired with a quilted nude purse, nude sandals, and statement gold jewelry. Since our usual date nights consist of me wearing something a bit more casual, I couldn't resist slipping into a cute dress for the evening. I love that this Flock and Role dress by Pink Martini is the perfect mix of playful and chic, and can easily be transitioned into an everyday dress, paired with your favourite pair of sandals or flats. It would also be the perfect dress to wear to an upcoming summer wedding.

The dress fits true to size, and for reference, I'm wearing a small. This is my first time ordering anything from Pink Martini, and let me tell you; the quality definitely justifies the price. 

**P.S. Shop Bop is having a surprise sale for the next 3 days, with up to 40% off on select styles! Shop the sale right here.

Stay blissful!:-)

Into The Fray (Plus Exciting News!!)

Saturday, April 30, 2016

Today, I'm so excited to announce that I'll be working with Le Chateau as one of their shoe ambassadors! For the next 9 months, I will be styling my favourite pick(s) for you all, chosen from their wide assortment of trend setting styles. This month, I decided to go with an open toe mule in nude (which also comes in black and under $80!).

On a side note, I swear I'm always battling the crazy wind when we're out taking photos - I leave the house with my hair styled, and by the time we start shooting, my hair is a complete disaster. Seriously, half the photos are always me fixing my hair lol. 

If you saw my recent instagram post, I was sporting a pair of these fabulous uneven fray hem jeans, with my new striped off-the shoulder top (post on these coming soon!). If you're a frequent reader of my blog, you know how much I love distressed denim, and now, I've recently fallen in love with uneven hem fray jeans. Although fray jeans have been around for a while, I recently started seeing more of the uneven look appear in-store. I must say, these 3 combined, are deadly, and I would consider them my new favourite style for denim. 

What's your take on uneven fray hem jeans? Let me know in the comments below! 

Stay Blissful!:-)

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

You all know how much I love printed dresses and tops (as seen here, here, and here), so today I've rounded up 10 of my top current picks for printed dresses, that are all under $100Whether you're heading to a summer wedding, or out with your girlfriends for brunch, a cute and fun sundress is a great addition to add to your Spring/Summer wardrobe. 

It was actually super windy the day Chase and I shot these photos that when I was going through them all, half of them were me holding down my dress, so I wouldn't flash everyone walking by...(#bloggerproblems)! lol. Probably not the best dress to wear on a super windy day:p. 

I hope you all are having a great week, and as always, thanks so much for stopping by and reading!
