Camel calling

Vancouver fashion blogger camel outfit how to wear joggers

I've been all about matching tone-on-tone lately.

Case in point: These cool camel joggers paired with a wool coat and simple white add-ons such as a white v-neck tee and classic Vans slip-ons.

I find the look of shades so alluring — and mega chic. Maybe it's all the images I've seen on Instagram and Pinterest of people sporting all-grey looks. And don't even get me started on denim-on-denim.

Consider yourselves warned, I'm going to be getting pretty matchy-matchy in the next few months.

Happy Wednesday and thank you for stopping by!

Coat: H&M (love this one) | Pants: Wilfred Buffon jogger | Tee: Old Navy | Shoes: Vans | Bag: Coach | Jewelry: Cartier, Poppy Finch and Tiffany & Co.

VIDEO: Schwarzkopf IGORA Color10 demo + giveaway

Full beauty confession: I usually hate getting my hair done.

There's neither a salon horror story in my past nor any good reason, really, for feeling this way.

Except, of course, for the fact that getting my thick, unruly head of hair done usually takes between 2-5 hours to complete —I kid you not — and I absolutely loathe sitting in one place for that long.

Between the colouring, washing, drying and styling — my hair appointments are never an in-and-out thing.  And I always feel so bad for the stylists when me (and my puff-prone hair!) sit down in their chairs for a service.

So, given the above context, it's easy to see why the idea of Schwarzkopf's IGORA Color10 formula, which provides permanent colour in 10 minutes of processing (!!!), appeals to me.

Given my hectic schedule, and my even more hectic hair, the idea that my tresses could be coloured in the time it takes me to paint my nails is nothing short of a miracle.

I had the opportunity to visit Poised Nail Lounge & Spa in Yaletown last week to test out the IGORA Color10 process.

Downtown chic

Outfit roundup Topshop jeans Anine Bing boots CHANEL Rouge Coco lipstick

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

I'm all about finding a routine when it comes to your wardrobe.

I like to think of it as adopting your own personal uniform. And the above items, for me, are some of the closet MVPs that make up my day-to-day, no-brainer looks.

From a great pair of denim such as these Topshop Jaime jeans (which I recently picked up in both black and grey!),  a simple and somewhat cheeky sweatshirt such as this one from Forever 21, and a great pair of boots — which are by my personal favourite Anine Bing — I'm all about padding my wardrobe with classic pieces that work well with a multitude of separates.

I've been leaning more toward bare eyes and look-at-me lips lately, hence the oh-so chic CHANEL Rouge Coco — and if you haven't ever slicked this lipstick on, it's a must-try, trust me.

Finally, how can you go wrong with a structured, carry-all tote such as this one from Gap? Answer: you can't.

And a stylish hat is at the top of my wishlist for spring. In a deliciously deep navy, this Rag and Bone Wide Brim Wool Hat is anything-but ordinary.

Happy Friday and thank you for stopping by!
