Trainers...(Sneakers)

For some reason I have been eyeing up trainers (or sneakers if you are in America) lately! I think it is because they are so comfortable and easy to wear. Here are a few I have been looking at. These and these are my favourite! I have these (womens) in black and have worn them non-stop.

Wish List – Bags and More Bags

Wish List - Bags

Peek-a-Boo // Speedy // Alma bb

Double Flap // Tote

Keepall // Boy // Backpack

It has been a while since I did a ‘Wish list’ and I do not think I have ever done one specifically for bags! Here are just a few bags I have my eye on. The Boy Bag and Double Flap (M/Lg) are 2 classic bags that I do not think you can go wrong with. The keepall I think would be great for short get aways or even as a carry on bag. However, I can’t decide on what size would be the best. What size do you think is best? This backpack looks great for everyday use and I love all the pockets on it. I just became away of this Chanel tote and think it would make a great everyday bag – something you can just throw everything into and go.

What bags do you have your eye on?

Autumn Layers

Autumn Layers

At 10:21am today it was officially Autumn. The beginning of a new season is always exciting! Here are a few ideas for your Autumn closet/beauty regime/house as the weather starts to cool down. Boots and a dark plum lipstick are always a must. You cannot go wrong with this lipstick. It lasts ALL day! A leather biker jacket and a hat are other good staples to have. I am loving this wool hat!

What are you looking forward to most this Autumn?

Nordstrom Anniversary SALE

Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale

I wanted to take a quick break between my Amsterdam posts because as most of you know the Nordstrom anniversary sale opened to the public today. This is one of the biggest sales of the year and bloggers have been posting about it non-stop! I wanted to share with you all a few I got as well as some other fantastic deals I had to (very hesitantly) pass on (otherwise my bill would have been astronomical-it is so easy to do!).

Leggings are one of my go to items in the Autumn and winter. Simply pairing them with a white tee (or long sweater) and boots make for an easy and comfortable outfit. These leggings were rated just under 5 *’s and have over 2000(!) reviews. At $33 they seem like a steal! I can’t wait till they arrive so I can see if they are worth all the hype. I will keep you posted.

Leggings

I have been wearing my Valentino trainers I got back in March ALL the time. They are very comfortable and easy to pair with outfits. The fact that they are black means they go with everything. Well I saw these pumas included in the sale and thought they might be a nice backup to have.

Trainers

As I said above I LOVE an oversized sweater. This sweater looked so comfortable and I really liked the V neck because I can easily add a statement necklace to dress it up a bit. I ordered a size up so that it would be oversized. It comes in 4 colours and is also under $40! 

Jumper

Lastly, I added the top to my basket because I liked the pattern and felt it could be easily dressed up for work or down with a pair of jeans. I’m a lttle hesitant on whether or not it is going to be too sheer but I will have to wait and see. 

Shirt

Here are some other great deals they have….

Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale Cont.

 

You can’t go wrong with a pair of Rag & Bone boots! I also think this coat is Amazing! I think the camel colour is so chic! I love this earring. I have the Black and clear ones and wear them all the time. Isn’t this palette great…It contains everything you need for your cheeks (blush, bronzer and a highlighter). Check out some of my other picks above.

Make sure to check out the great deals at Nordstrom!! Let me know what you guys get!

Online Window Shopping – Currently Coveting

Currently Coveting
White Dress // Body Oil // White Bag // Suede Booties // Black Strappy Pumps // Earrings // Candle // Pillows // Black Strappy Heels

You know I love a bit of Online Window Shopping….well here is my latest. Back around Christmas I tried on this white dress in a blue and white version and loved it. However, I could not justify the price – now I see they have it in a plain white version and they are both on sale! I discovered this body oil when I was looking up the Diptyque body creme that I had a sample of. The body creme has such an amazing smell that I can’t wait to try the body oil when I see it in store. I love Boots and think these are amazing – I’m not one who wears a lot of silver but I do love the buckles on these boots. How can you not like these strappy pumps or these strappy heals?? They are so edgy – I love them! Definitely something to save up for or try and find a dupe for! I thought these earrings were very simple but still had a “wow” factor. I love Eucalyptus and also want to see how this candle smells when I’m next in a department store in Atlanta – that and the Biaes room spray. I love the Biaes candle and would be interested to see how they compare. Of course there is another bag in there – one that is simple and chic and would go with errything! Lastly, I thought these outdoor pillows were fun. A great colour and pattern! Looking at the picture I realize there is a definite colour theme doing on this time – white, back, and gold/yellow!

Valentine’s Day Picks

Valentine Picks

Candle // Pouch // Pumps // Body Creme

Scarf // Purse // Tray // Earrings

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and here are a few Valentine’s Day Picks I found that would make great gifts (or to treat yourself) for all different budgets. I love the smell of roses and Jo Malone makes nice luxurious body crèmes that feel great on the skin. Diptyque candles have great throw and will leave the entire room smelling like fragrant and this Roses one is no exception! Who wouldn’t love a great pair of red pumps with red soles to match! They would be great for a date night. This pouch would be great for makeup or to keep bits n’ bobs in your purse, especially this purse, and the quote is cute! I have these earrings in the clear crystal and love wearing them day and night. They have a lot of colours to choose from as well. Wouldn’t this tray would be a great place to put your jewelry when taking it off for bed. They make ones with all the different letters in the alphabet so it is a bit more personal. Lastly, scarfs always add a nice finishing touch to an outfit and this one comes in a pretty light pink color – great for Valentine’s Day and as we move into Spring.

What Valentine’s Day gifts do you have in mind?

Online Window Shopping – Basics

Online Shopping Basics LBD (Left & Right) // Trench (Top & Bottom) // Toggle Coat (Top & Bottom) // Sweater

Nude Pump // Hat (Top & Bottom) // Sunglasses // Bag // Black Pump

I have been online window shopping again…this time it is Online Window Shopping – Basics! I think it is definitely worth investing in great basic pieces that will last wear after wear. Investing in these pieces is worthwhile because they will not only last season after season but never go out of style but can be easily spruced up with some lower priced trendy items.

As it is cold out side right now I will start with a coat. You can never go wrong with a classic trench coat! I also really like Duffle/Toggle coats like Paddington Bear wears. Finding one with a big hood is a must because it will keep you really warm! A classic nude (or black) pump is another fantastic piece that will go with anything and is something every lady should have in her wardrobe. A nice sweater will keep you warm and toasty in the winter and can also be worn with a plethora of items – jeans, skirts, dress trousers…you name it!

Next up is a large brim fedora. Now I realize this may not be everyone’s cup of tea but I don’t think you can go wrong with such a classic hat (I also LOVE hats). It is also a plus that it keeps your head warm and your hair somewhat out of your face on cold and windy days. We can’t talk about classics and not mention the little black dress! I am loving this one and this one! For accessorizes, I think a great pair of sunglasses is a must; be sure to find something that fits and works with your face shape. There are so many images available online that show what shape and style suits what face shape. A favourite of mine is the Ray ban Wayfarer.

I am going to finish off with a bag (another favourite of mine)! I picked a piece I currently have and love using, a Mulberry Bayswater. This is an amazing bag that fits in the crook of your arm and can hold an amazing amount that make it easy to transition from office to day off.

When I look to invest in pieces, see the price tag and flinch I try to calculate cost per wear. If it is something I am going to wear over and over again the cost per wear goes way down – at least that is my justification! Haha!

What are some of your key pieces that you think every wardrobe should have?

Lots of Love,
