Insta-awsome

I don’t know if you know this, but Instagram is awesome. I am addicted. I am on Instagram more than I am on Facebook (or any other form of social network). I love scrolling through peoples’ images, getting to see outfit inspirations, pictures of nature and best of all… peoples’ pets.

Here are a few of my favorite instagram pics from the past few weeks.

Oscars Best Dressed – Easy Pick

I don’t know if you were aware of this, but the Oscars were last sunday. Haha. Just kidding. A billion people were apparently watching. A BILLION! Pure craziness. So of course all of Hollywood was looking fantastic, some more fantastic than others of course. And my pick for Best Dressed? So Easy.

Amanda Seyfried rocked this number by Alexander McQueen.  I’m usually not even a fan of this type of neckline but she looked absolutely fantastic.  Amanda Seyfried wore this neckline a lot better than Salma Hayek.  Both wore McQueen but Amanda Seyfried definitely ended up on top.

OOTD! Heading to work : )

So, I work 6 days per week.  Every week.  So I need to get creative in my wardrobe in order to mix it up.  Otherwise I find myself wearing my old faithful outfits.  That is boring.  So today I decided to bust out my skinny black pants, add a new top from J Crew Factory and my go to black Aritzia blazer and I was pretty satisfied.  And then I realized it was missing something.  Color.

 

Pants: Dynamite, Top: J Crew Factory, Blazer: Aritzia, Necklace: J Crew Factory

I added my fantastic necklace from the J Crew Factory store, and BAM! Complete.

 

 

Amazing Deal… J Crew Does it Again!

I took a spin through the J Crew Store in West Edmonton Mall shortly after Christmas to find a delightful assortment of treats.  The necklace below is an example:

I’m so in love with this beauty, and again – post Christmas deals flying everywhere.  I got this on a crazy discount, something like 50% off the last ticket price which brought it to 15$. 

I love a fantastic deal.

Valentines Day Look

I LOVE Valentines Day. There is something about blatant celebrations of love that I am just enamoured with. So, in celebration of V Day, I decided to add a little color to my look but without being overtly pink and red.

I hope you had a lovely Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day!!

Today I am spreading the gospel of Love!  Buuuuut, I didn’t want my outfit to be too pink and red so I decided to accessorize with a few items to add a little Valentines flare to my look.

Just a little pink and purple to liven an otherwize everyday work look.  Spread the Love!

What I am wearing

How do you know when you love something?  When you just wear it and you can’t wait to wear it again.  Hence below:

Dress: Smart Set, Blazer: Aritzia, Scarf: J Crew Factory, Boots: Browns

So I pulled this beauty out of my closet today and decided that YES! I will go ahead and wear this lapis colored dress again.  Since its kinda warm out I added the scarf so that I don’t have to wear a jacket over my blazer (because obviously there is nothing worse).  Add the boots because I live in Edmonton and the weather is nothing but snow and slush right now and I think that I am pretty happy with the way that this turned out.  PS, I even gave my hair a little curl today which is something that I NEVER do.  So feeling good!
