Little Black Dress for the Holidays


Dress:  Tobi  // Coat:  Zara ( other color) // Heels:  BCBGeneration ( similar)
Lipstick:  Smashbox Be Legendary in "Legendary" // Earrings:  Chayle

I love having a couple little black dresses in my closet for dressy occasions, especially around the holidays. I wear them to multiple events, like winter formal and the Nutcracker ballet, but switch up my heels, coat, accessories, and hair-style so it feels like a brand new outfit. I'll be wearing this dress to my winter formal this Friday! Tobi has some great dresses for formal.

Goodbye Fall

Parka: Canada Goose // Scarf: J. Crew Factory // Sweater: Tobi 
Jeans: 7 For All Mankind // Booties: Sam Edelman

This weekend the temperature dipped below freezing and we had a light snow fall, so I started pulling all of my cold weather favorites out of my closet. I've already worn my Canada Goose a few times this month and definitely felt a little extra wearing a parka in November! Under my parka I like to wear a cozy sweater (Tobi has some great options) paired with a festive plaid scarf. I wore this outfit with my new leather booties, before I get stuck wearing Hunter boots or clunky Sorels for the rest of the season.

Holiday Gift Guide: Beauty

Travalo Travel Perfume Atomizer - This is perfect for the traveler!
Borghese Active Fango Mud Mask - My mom, sister, and I love this mask! It leaves your skin feeling so soft and refreshed. I tried a similar, more expensive mask from Glam Glow and wasn't impressed at all. 

Makeup brands come out with the BEST products around the holidays. I love all of the amazing value gift sets and beautiful limited editions. Christmas is the perfect time to treat someone to a nice beauty gift that they wouldn't buy some themselves, like a Borghese face mask, a monogrammed cosmetic case, or a luxury perfume. There are also plenty of inexpensive options, like the Deborah Lippmann nail polish set ($25!) or the MAC Snow Ball Rose lip gloss kit ($30).

Thanksgiving Outfit Inspiration

Thank you to Elle for suggesting this post! Unfortunately there was a delay with receiving my camera and I wasn't able to shoot an outfit, so I decided to pick some of my favorite Thanksgiving outfits from Pinterest. I tried to include outfits with wardrobe staples that you probably have in your closet.

For some reason Canadian Thanksgiving happens in October, so I'm super jealous of everyone who gets to spend time with family and stuff their face with turkey next week!
Enjoy :)

Hunter Boots + a Cozy Sweater + Jacket + Plaid Scarf

Trench Coat + Striped Sweater + Tall Boots

Holiday Gift Guide: Mom



Happy Monday everyone! This week I'm kicking off my Holiday Gift Guide series. Each week I'll be posting a different gift guide to help you with your Christmas shopping. Although it's still November, Starbucks has released it's holiday drinks and I've been listening to Michael Buble's Christmas album, so I don't think it's too early to start thinking about gifts ;)

Whenever I ask my mom what she wants for Christmas, she usually says a day without cell phones or no arguing in the house (haha). My go to's are hand cream or some sort of product from the Body Shop. Other gifts that she likes are scarves/shawls. One year we got her custom a painting of our house from an artist on Etsy. There are tons of artists who can paint your house, pet etc. I think this is a super sweet idea if you're looking for something more sentimental!

Winter Formal Dresses Under $200



First Row: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5
Second Row: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5
Third Row: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5
Fourth Row: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

November may seem a little premature to be looking at dresses for formal, but December is less than a month away. I've included some of my favorite long and short dresses for formall, all under $200.

My winter formal is less than a month away, so I've been looking at dresses. Last year I waited too long to order a dress online, so I had to rush to the mall a week before formal which was stressful to say the least.
