Love for Lace







I managed to fit in one itsy bitsy photo shoot while I was on vacation in Buzios. We are mid-April in Canada and sadly, we are about three months shy from any type of condition that would allow me to strut around in this type of attire. Take me back to Brazil!

Thanks for following and happy shopping!

Winter to Spring Sequins





It's that transition period where the snow has melted, the trees are bare, the grass is brown and there is mud/slush everywhere. Yes, not the most romantic scenery that you can imagine but alas, it's the reality of early April. Here are two outfits that are meant to bring a little sparkle to the dreary climate conditions if you so happen to be experiencing Spring like I am.

Thanks for following and happy shopping!

Winter Look: Jacket: UniQueen - $93, Top: Vintage - $65, Earrings: Stella & Dot - $40, Clutch: BCBG - $20, Ring: Swatch - Gift available here, Sunglasses: Presence - $16.

Spring Look: Cardigan: Zara - $40, Wallet: Kate Spade - $70, Sweater: Gap - $5, Ring: Swatch - Gift available here, Sunglasses: Presence - $16, Necklace: Zara - $25, H&M - $16.

Living in Neutrals









My first week back from vacation has involved catching up on my favourite realty t.v. shows, napping an inexcusable amount and eating mini eggs…non stop. It really is the little things that make you feel at home.

Canadian Lumberjack









I am so excited to share these photos taken by my friend, Jennifer Barr, who is equally talented as she is beautiful. This is the second time she has photographed me for this blog (see Hawaiian Warrior). 

It's hard to believe that our reunion post high school was only a year ago! I always love hanging out with Jen because every time I see her, I feel inspired to wake up before sunrise, exercise everyday, be super productive and eat healthy ALL the time (only one of us is successful at accomplishing these tasks…hint: it's not me. Curse my lack of will power and my reality t.v. and junk food dependency). Other than those minor differences, we have a shared love of food, fashion, Starbucks, photography, vacationing and all things pretty and sparkly! When you find someone with this many shared interests and teaches you so much (about books, music, life and how to create a killer itinerary *cough cough* NYC), you latch on to them for dear life and never let them go! 

We will be spending a lot of time together this summer so hopefully you will see more of her work soon, but for now, you can check out her keen eye, amazing taste and killer photography skills on her instagram account @jlcbarr

Jacket: courtsey of Jen, Hat: courtesy of Jen, Jeans: Celebrity Pink - $21, Boots: Steve Madden - $105, Sweater: J.Crew - $25.

Black and Gold Accents











I've made some progress with videos but I thought I would re-enter the wonderful world of fashion photography to switch things up again. We're in the beginning of March and there are no signs of Spring in sight, so you will be seeing a lot more photos of my winterwear. In order to bring some lightness to the dreary weather I thought I would add some sparkle to the mix, as I tend to do. 

Thanks for following and happy shopping!

Coat: H&M - $45, Booots: ASOS - $36, Blouse: Joe Fresh - $35, Ring: United People - $30, Bracelets: H&M - $2 each, Earrings: Anna Dello Russo for H&M - $30, Sunglasses: Presence - $16, Tights - old, Skirt: H&M - $35, Clutch: Forever 21 - $20.
