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!

Comfy Sandals & Chambray

Sandals, USA Similar (under $50) and Similar (under $100) // Jeans (mine have faded over time) // Top – Fat Face (old), Similar // Bag // Necklace – J Crew (Old), similar and Similar

I LOVE these sandals! They go with everything and are so comfortable. The price tag is also one that does not make you gasp. I was heading to lunch with a friend so kept everything very casual but you could easy pair these sandals with a dress, blazer, and clutch to make it a little more fancy. The fact that these shoes are so versatile makes them a great piece to have in your wardrobe.

I hope you are all have a great week! Thanks for stopping by.

Fringe…

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. As you can tell from a few of my recent posts I just discovered Polyvore. I love it! It is great for inspiration for anything from fashion and jewelry to home ideas. Since fringe trend is huge this Spring I thought I would create a board on that. Check out some of my picks above.

I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of nude pumps and I finally found them! Nude pumps are great because they literally go with everything and they make your legs look longer – as long as you get the right colour. I love these pumps because they are really comfortable and have a classic shape. I paired them with a Zara suede dress and a bright bag for a pop of colour.

Have a great weekend!

Grey Jeans and Chelsea Boots

I picked up some grey jeans and chelsea boots while I was in England and wore them when I went to Guildford one evening to meet my friend Katy for dinner. I kept it very causal and comfortable pairing both with a bright top, leather jacket and hat.

After dinner we set off to find a place to have one last drink before heading home. We ended up at The Kings Head where we were both thoroughly entertained by 2 men practicing magic tricks on us and a man who was dressed up as a red nose walking through the door (for red nose day). I always want to know how the magic tricks are done and Katy and myself couldn’t stop trying to figure out how they were done on the walk back towards our lift home.

Shades of Green – Playsuit

Happy Monday Everybody! This is a continuation of my previous post. In that one you saw the makeup I wore to a wine dinner, well here is the outfit! It got this green playsuit (that looks like a dress from the front) a couple of months ago and have been really excited about wearing it. I thought the wine dinner was the perfect occasion.

I think this playsuit is great because it can easily be dressed up or down and can be worn year round. Here I just paired it with tights to help stay warm and heeled booties just to dress it up a bit. In the summer, minus the tights and add some sandals!

Here it is!

Playsuit 2

I will say I had to snap pictures the next day because when we left we were running late (not my fault) and it was too dark. The next day it was SO cold, I had a hard time keeping my jacket open and scarf not bundled around me. On top of that it was really windy! Yet, I still had a great time and thank you to my good friend Virginia for taking them for me!

P.S. I am not one to match my eye makeup (and earrings) to my outfit BUT it was all green and that is a favorite of mine – also I think the green eyeliner was subtle enough that it worked.

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,

Monthly Favourites – November

This post is a bit late (Thanksgiving threw me off with my posts) but here are my Monthly Favourites – November.

F84 F84 Close

This is my most reached for foundation brush F84 (I have had it for years)! I love how it buffs the foundation into the skins and gives a natural (non streaky) finish. I have a couple of the different ones that are in the same family (F80, F82, F86) and really like using them all but this is my favourite.

Ed Sheeran

Hozier

I have been listening to Ed Sheeran’s album non-stop since I downloaded it on iTunes. I think it is great. I have also really been enjoying the Hozier album. I downloaded it after hearing the “Take me to Church” song and hearing from a friend that the album was really good.

Candle

This Yankee Farmer’s Market candle was a gift and I burned it non-stop in November. It was the perfect scent to get you in the mood for Thanksgiving.

Shadow

This Cyber Lilac eye shadow is perfect for ladies with green eyes (and everyone else!). It is a pretty shimmer purple colour and I have really enjoyed wearing it lately.

Newbury Front Newbury Back

These Newbury boots have rave reviews online and I decided to order a pair and see how I liked them. I choose the grey pair with the piping because I have a black bootie that is very similar in shape and so wanted something a bit different. These were also on sale (I got them on shopbop during their cyber Monday sale – which lasted a few days) for over 50% off! They are made of Nubuck and are so soft and comfortable! I see why they have such great reviews!

Juicing

 

Juice

Finally, my last favourite is an item I have had for years! My husband and I got a juicer (sharper image – not sure the model) a few years ago as an engagement present from his parents. We both love juicing but hadn’t pulled it out for a few months….well that changed in November and we have been using it constantly!

I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving with friends and family! I cant believe it is already December. This year has gone by so fast.

Lots of Love,
