Weekend wardrobe

weekend wardrobe Wilfred Aritzia joggers

I'm not going to lie, this whole "athleisure" trend that has taken over the fashion world really appeals to the lazy side of my style.

No, I'm not going to start wearing my sweats to work — but the fact that I can wear a pair of stylish joggers, Nike Free Runs and a few flashy accessories to create a pulled-together weekend look is pretty OK with me. 

I mean, I've always believed throwing a CHANEL bag over virtually any outfit just ups the overall chicness — and this outfit might just prove that theory correct.

Happy weekend and thank you for stopping by!

Benefit Puff Off Instant Eye Gel: A quick review

Benefit Puff Off Instant Eye Gel: A quick review

What it is: An under-eye gel in an innovative gel formula that helps to smooth and cool tired skin. 


Beauty bonus: After application, this gel didn't settle into fine lines (yay!) and provided pretty, puff-free eyes all day long. 


Beauty bummer: If a hit of moisture is what you're after, this product won't exactly replace your moisturizer. 


Overall: This product is like a colour-correcting serum with an added bonus of de-puffing. 

The cooling (and oh-so cute looking!) iron tip has that perfectly quirky Benefit-esque look, which acts to not only make you smile but adds to the application and de-puffing effect. 

Would I recommend? Yes!
Available: Sephora and Sephora.ca 
Price: $36

Plaid + leather

J Brand leather leggings outfit idea

I'm working from Toronto this week, and while it's quite a bit chillier here than back home in Vancouver, I actually brought this exact outfit along for the ride.

Not only are the J Brand leather leggings super chic, they are also surprisingly warm, which make them perfect for these sub-zero temps.

And while I brought a pair of rubber boots for the commute to the downtown office (OK, I'm staying two blocks away, so I can't really even call it a commute!), I made sure these snakeskin Sam Edelman ballet flats made it into my suitcase too.

What can I say, if I like an outfit, I wear it again and again and ... :P

Happy Tuesday and thank you for reading!

Bow details

InWear maxi sweater cardigan and Le Chateau bow heels

I don't often have the love-at-first-sight experience in stores ... at least not one strong enough that I feel compelled to purchase the item.

That's why, when it actually happens, I. Just. Can't. Say. No.

Case in point: this luxurious camel-coloured sweater coat and these amazing bow heels from Le Chateau.

While I wasn't really shopping for a maxi cardigan or strappy heels, I just couldn't leave these items at the store.

I imagine that I will wear this versatile maxi cardigan with just about everything — and don't even get me started on these heels.

The bow detail at the back feels fun and flirty, but in the front? They are all chic.

Happy weekend and thank you for stopping by!
