Planning Your Autumn Wardrobe, Style File Friday

Autumn seems a long way off in the middle of July but the retail landscape is anywhere from one to three months ahead of the rest of us! I love the colder weather of autumn and winter, and the clothing that accompanies it. However, to make the most of my wardrobe and the season, I start planning one to two months ahead what I plan on generally wearing for the season- it gives me the time I need to find or purchase anything I need, and time to clear out what I won’t be wearing! This post will help you highlight how to identify what you have for your autumn wardrobe, what you need, and what you can get rid of!

Living Sustainably, Pt III: Your Wardrobe

Welcome to the third part of my sustainability series! While Part I was all about food, and Part II was all about the home, this is going to focus on how to tackle your wardrobe and make changes for a more green closet! (For anyone following along, I will be doing a fourth part next week.) We all have thoughtful and specific-to-us wardrobes that suit our tastes and needs, but that doesn’t mean that it suits the environment. Building a sustainable wardrobe is certainly a long term but worthwhile process that can be done by anyone! Today I’m sharing the four things you can focus on when looking at your wardrobe with green glasses…

Summer Skincare Routine, Style File Friday

The summer- the time for most of us where we try to take advantage of the warm weather and do all of those outdoorsy activities that are difficult to do in the extreme cold and metres of snow. (Or rain/ normal amounts of snow that you may have…) It’s also the time when we tend to be harder on our skin. Sure, we often get dry in the winter but the summer can actually work against your skin in big ways. This is how I’m tackling the summer weather and protecting my skin!

Lilly Pulitzer Cori Dress Review, Style File Friday

I’ve got a fairly conservative style of dress, in regards to colour and print. I’m slowly learning to take more risks, branch out, and not take my clothing so seriously. It doesn’t mean that I’m not going to avoid the neon pinks and yellows, but animals and multiple colours!! I’m hoping that these reviews will help at least a few people- I find that Lilly can be hit and miss with pieces and there aren’t always a ton of reviews available. So, without further adieu, my newest piece of summer clothing…

Brighton Crossbody, Style File Friday

If you are anything like me, or live anywhere like Winnipeg, you may be slightly hard on your handbags. My holy grail handbags are doing well, but my other bags get beat up after a while. With how cold Winnipeg is (-45°C in the winter, anyone??) and being on the go a lot of the time, I seem to go through purses faster than I would like. However, I recently received the perfect crossbody for me, and it’s more durable than I think most cars are these days. If you need something to stand up to unknown forces, read on!

Longchamp Le Pliage Review, Style File Friday

If you remember my Style To-Do List from April, you will recall that I had a Longchamp tote on it! Because I travel as much as I do, I knew that it would be solid investment (that I have been eyeing up for years). Everyone swears by them but I debated for the better part of two years if it would be worth it to invest that much in a simple canvas tote bag. I finally decided to go through it as that much time spent thinking on it has to mean something. Now that I’ve spent some time with it, I’m sharing my thoughts and review!

Michael Kors Daisy Moc, Style File Friday

I have been on the hunt for a comfortable but practical pair of flats for work for months now. I am very particular about ballet flats (they are near impossible to find a comfortable pair for under $130 USD) and I am hesitant to buy any shoes that I can’t try on. (Winnipeg is not the most wonderful place in the world for shoe shopping. Or any shopping…) Miracle of miracles, I finally found a pair while shopping in Seattle!! The Daisy Moc (Michael by Michael Kors) is perfect for what I need, and I’m pretty excited that I finally can step up my shoe game at work!

Lifestyle Investments

Early adulthood is the land of difficult choices, less money than we would like, and a whole lot of confusion. Most of us flounder in some way or another, but you can set yourself up for a solid future by making some key investments. This isn’t about monetary investments- see a professional financial advisor for those- but rather investment items that worth the time and money of picking the right one. As I come to my late twenties, I’ve learned over the years where to spend and where to save, and I’m passing that knowledge on!

Lilly Pulitzer Popover, Style File Friday

If you happened to read my SS17 Style To-Do List, you will recall that my list is actually quite short- just three things! I’ve acquired the first item on my list, a Lilly Pulitzer popover. It took a bit of Facebook re-sale board stalking, but I was able to get a print that I love at a wonderful price, and I’m wearing it as I sit at the airport and wait for my flight (so far, so good on the warmth). Today is going to be a review of the popover and my recommendations!

Lilly Pulitzer Windward Dress, Style File Friday

Continuing on in my spring and summer theme for clothing, I’m sharing a light and fun dress that I was able to find for a fantastic price! The Windward Dress is a casual, cotton dress from Lilly Pulitzer that I bought for less than half of the retail price with patience and luck. I’m still working on branching out from my wardrobe of many, many solid neutrals (and stripes that are essentially a neutral…), so Lilly is a perfect infusion of fun and pattern. Although Sea Ruffles (this pattern) is monochromatic, the light blue and white is not at all present in my wardrobe! Look at me, branching out like an adult. This is the story of how I actually found the dress, and my review and thoughts of it!
