One of my favorite signs of Spring is that I can swap out my heavy winter coat for a trench coat. I love the details of a good trench coat; double-breasted, shoulder epaulets, gun flap, and storm shield. There’s quite a rich history behind the trench coat as it was originally designed by Thomas Burberry as part of the uniform issued to the British Army during WWI.  It was during the trench warfare that the iconic coat got its […]

Cape Convert

You guys, this cape is EVERYTHING. And it’s only $40 at Target. I love it. I’m usually such a blazer fan but this cape has made me a convert. You get the versatility of a blazer but you can move! I love blazers but sometimes they can restrict movement so I’m loving that this cape gives me more comfort that way. Plus, it immediately elevates any look. I’m pretty stoked to see all the ways I […]

Vested Interest

According to the calendar it’s officially Spring but here in The Mitten mother nature hasn’t quite gotten there yet. As such I have to resist the urge to put away all my sweaters and pull out my espadrilles and sandals. It’s not an easy thing to marry Winter and Spring together. No two seasons could be more opposite so that poses quite the clothing conundrum. One of my go-to strategies is layering. This military-inspired vest […]

Denim for Days

Spring is finally starting to sprout up here in The Mitten and it has me storing up my warmer season staples. This H&M Conscious chambray shirt is def going to be my go-to along with my distressed denim. The trick to keeping all denim looks from going Canadian tuxedo is to vary the shades of denim. I’m also a big fan of adding interesting details in your accessories. Turquoise is big this season so I […]


  One of the best investments you can make in your wardrobe is a statement jacket. This leather jacket I scored from Zara looks like it could have come from a high-end brand like Acne or AllSaints. Instead I got it on sale and have never been able to find one like it for much under $1000. A jacket like this one is an important piece of your wardrobe. While you can get statement jackets in […]

No Stone Unturned

One of the things I love most about fashion is its ability to make you feel like you can do anything. Like when you’re excited to get dressed in the morning because you’re feeling inspired by putting things you already have together in a new way. Shopping your closet is one of my fav ways to get a new perspective and that helps carry over in my attitude for the rest of my day. Accessories […]

Winter Blues

It’s that time of the year when the whispers of Spring that peak through Winter’s doldrums make you long for warmer temps and sunny skies. One good sign Spring is on its way is that I can bust out my holey jeans. In the Winter months it’s usually too cold but come Summer they’re a great way to wear denim and keep cool. Pair them with a long cardi to keep you cozy and you […]

Monochrome State of Mind

I’ve never been interested in rules of fashion. In fact, I was embracing trends long before I knew there was such a thing. I’ve always felt like rules were meant to be bent, nowhere more so than in fashion. Here is one that I actually can get behind though – monochromatic dressing. As someone who needs 2 inch heels to reach 5 feet tall and is constantly asking people to reach the top shelf in […]

Hat Trick

I love a good hat! And this one by Topshop is one of my favs. But it wasn’t always that way. When I was a kid my mom thought I looked cute in them but every time she put one on me I tore it off. So would be the story of me and hats – only on long enough for my mom to snap a quick pic. I completely forgot about them until a […]

Trench Coat with a Twist

There are few things I love more than a designer collaboration with one of my favorite fast-fashion retailers. Something about all that hype and anticipation makes them like the Rose Bowl of the fashion world. Probably one of my favorites to date is the Altuzarra for Target collection. This trench combines the versatility of the trench with the elegance of a dress. The contrasting coated jean sleeves give it an edge so it’s the perfect […]
