On Trend: Western Inspired Belt

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Hello everyone! This western inspired belt is another trend that I've fallen in love with recently, and will definitely be making  many appearances on the blog this Fall. I purchased it a few weeks back and already worn it with skinny jeans, denim shorts, and a shirtdress. A belt like this takes basic to a whole new level!

Today, I decided to style it with a high waisted denim skirt, polka dot frill blouse, black slides, metallic sunglasses, and a studded mini cross body, to give it a cool girl vibe. Only limited sizes available in this top, so grab it quickly as it's not being re-stocked. You can also grab this exact belt below.

What's your thoughts on the western inspired belt? Let me know in the comments below!

Beat The Heat

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

A few weeks back Chase and I checked out a local restaurant called Hawthorne Beer Market & Bistro, which is just up the street from our place. We always talked about going there, and finally for date night we did. Although it was pricey, the food was absolutely amazing! 

I picked up this dress during the Zara Summer sale (I warned you all prior how much I bought!:p) and wore it again recently with a pair of white sneakers, while running errands. I'm happy to announce that Summer has FINALLY hit Vancouver! It's been so hot here the past few days and this dress managed to keep me nice and cool! 

I would also love to rock this dress with a pair of block heels next, which if you haven't grabbed yet, definitely do. Block heels are trending this season, and not only do they look amazing on, they're also super comfy. I've linked my favourite pair here

Stay Blissful!:-)

Romantic Red

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

Red isn't a colour I normally gravitate towards; even though I've always adored the way it looks on other people. But when I saw this top recently, I fell in love with the gorgeous ruffle detailing and bell sleeves. I got it while shopping the Zara Summer sale a few weeks back, with no major event plans. 

My nephews concert is coming up in September, and I think this would be the perfect outfit to wear for a night out downtown. I'm also going to see Keith Urban in September, which I'm super excited for since I missed him last time he was here. I can't wait to plan an outfit for that night as well! I'm thinking something a bit more casual:-). 

This top recently sold out on the Zara website, but if you're looking for  a great selection of red off the shoulder tops, I've linked them down below. I've also linked these jeans and lace up heels.

Why You Need A Sleeveless Vest for Fall

Sunday, August 7, 2016

I feel like we haven't had much of a Summer in Vancouver this year, which is really unfortunate since Summer is the season I look forward to the most. Now with Fall right around the corner, I'm already starting to do some shopping for key staple pieces. During the #NSALE I picked up this vest, along with these jeans and knitted high neck tank. 

I love the fit of the jeans and how they have just the right amount of distressing. The mustard suede vest is such a great fit, also 40% off right now ($31.20), and fully stocked. The knitted tank fits on the smaller side, so I would definitely suggest sizing up (I'm wearing a large).

I think a sleeveless vest serves as an excellent transitional piece, giving you the option to wear it with a sweater when it gets cooler, or a tank for warmer days. Making it an ideal piece to add to your wardrobe this Summer/early Fall.   

Today is also the last day of the #NSALE, so make sure you head over to your local Nordstrom or shop your favorite finds here

NYX Cosmetics After Party Look

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

Couple weeks ago I was invited to attend my first local event for fashion and makeup bloggers, hosted by NYX Cosmetics. I was happy to  meet some local bloggers and got to connect with a few. This was my first local blogger event and I must say I was pretty nervous, since I didn't know anyone. Luckily I was able to bring a guest and ended up inviting my awesome girlfriend, Seema (pictured above). 

I've attached a short video from the event here, along with some photos you can check out here. I was very impressed with the event and must say NYX Cosmetics definitely knows how to throw an awesome party, with amazing food, music, and service!

For the event, I ended up wearing this gorgeous floral maxi that I scored during the Zara summer sale for less than $35! I paired it with taupe open toe lace up heelsa green purse and gold Kate Spade earrings to finish off the look. The dress is sold out, but I've added some of my favorite floral dresses below for you all to shop.

Stay Blissful!:-) 

Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone

Wednesday, July 27, 2016

I've never been one to handle stress well, and so the idea of stepping outside my comfort zone has always made me a bit nervous. Over the years I've learned to let go of a lot, and go outside my comfort zone; both in my personal life and with fashion.

 The idea of experimenting with different looks has always been super fun and exciting, even if I didn't have the courage to wear it in public. For instance, I've wanted to try clogs for the longest time, but wasn't sure if I could pull them off. I'm so glad I gave them a go because I absolutely love how chic they look and can't wait to style them with a maxi dress next. They're also the most comfortable pair of heels I own!

I managed to get a bunch of great items for Fall during the #NSale, such as this burgundy cardigan and these distressed skinny jeans. Unfortunately, the cardigan is sold out, but there are still a few sizes left in the jeans. 

Have you stepped outside your comfort zone with anything lately? I'd love to hear about it! Let me know in the comments below!

Stay Blissful!:-)

Casual Chic with Hieleven

Wednesday, July 13, 2016

If there's one bag that I can't live without, it's the bucket bag. Recently, I was introduced to amazing brand, called Hieleven Handbags, which sells a wide assortment of timeless and minimalist bags. From shoulder bags, totes, crossbodys, to my ultimate favourite bucket bag, I was exstatic to find they carry a mini version of the bucket bag. You can check out their entire collection here.

I'm headed to my first blogger event this Saturday and super excited to get a chance to meet some local bloggers. It's being hosted by NYX Cosmetics in Vancouver. I've already connected with many amazing bloggers worldwide, but never made any connections locally. I will be sharing some photos from the event with you all, so stay tuned!

Stay Blissful!:-).
