Cool cape

Coach blanket cape coat outfit blogger

Blanket capes and scarves were everywhere this winter season.

And because I was neither willing nor able to shell out the $1,600-some dollars for those oh-so covetable Burberry cape ponchos (you know the ones!) — I decided to opt for something a little more affordable.

I picked up this Coach version at a factory outlet store earlier this winter and have been so happy with it. It's stylish, cozy and, let's face it, at around $200, it has a much nicer price tag than its runway counterpart.

Sometimes I hate being so fiscally responsible. :P

Happy Friday and thank you for stopping by!

Sporty chic

424 Fifth neoprene baseball hat


It feels like my outfit posts have been a bit few and far between lately, but bear with me, because they're coming.

I shot this look about a week ago on a particularly chilly day in the Fraser Valley — way too chilly for a mini dress.

But I was so eager to style this great spring Gap dress — and you know how it goes when you finally settle on a look that you're excited about — you've just got to wear it!

Paired with a sporty-luxe hat, black ankle boots and a whole lot of 90s influence, this scuba t-shirt dress is fun, flirty and surprisingly versatile.

Despite the frigid temps, I had a ton of fun shooting this athletic-inspired look. Check out a quick video I threw together from the day.


Today, I'm off to Palm Springs for a few days of rest and relaxation in order to celebrate my eldest sister's birthday. Be sure to follow along on Instagram!

Happy Wednesday and thank you for stopping by.

Vichy Homme Idealizer Multi-Action Moisturizer: A quick review

 Vichy Homme Idealizer Multi-Action Moisturizer review

What it is: Vichy Homme Idealizer Multi-Action Moisturizer is a new cream for men that is available in two formulas: one for the burly bearded and one for the frequent shaver.

The lotions, when used post-shave, work to instantly soothe irritation, moisturize, and reduce signs of aging and fatigue. What is most unique about this lotion is that it helps improve overall ease and effectiveness of the next day's shave for smooth skin, or helps to moisturize beard hair for those with more to, well, manscape.

Beauty bonus: This lotion does not burn the skin when applied directly after shaving like most lotions. It has a subtle scent that won’t scare off even the most low-maintenance man.

Beauty bummer: Guys, don’t expect an immediate visible decrease in signs of aging and fatigue. This lotion requires a few applications to truly improve skin’s overall condition — but when it kicks in, it really shows.

Overall: This lightweight and refreshing aftershave lotion is a must for even the most demanding manscaper or bearded beauty.

Would recommend: Yes

Price: $25 

Where sold: Shoppers Drug Mart

Note: Product testing conducted by my sisters' boyfriends. :P

Current mood: Friday faves

Fashion inspirational top images


It's finally Friday, and all I've got to say is #TGIF.

I'm heading to Palm Springs mid-week next week and I have serious pre-vacation brain.

You know what I'm talking about, right? When you stare at your computer screen for far longer than appropriate as you daydream about what you're going to be doing on your holiday. Ya, that has been me.

That's why I wanted to share a bit of my daydreaming in a roundup of Friday fashion fave images.

From messy buns to must-read books, my mind sets to wandering with this set of images. Dare to dream.

Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!
