Special Edition: Album Photo Shoot Part 2

My last post was part one of our photo shoot for The Asking’s new album. My hubby and I have a duo called The Asking and we’re releasing a new album! If you missed Part 1 of the photo shoot, be sure to check it out! For the second look for our album photo shoot I chose this vintage dress from Saks that my mom had from her pageant days. It has the perfect 60’s/70’s […]

Special Edition: Album Photo Shoot Part 1

Over the past few months the duo my husband and I have, The Asking, have been hard at work on a new album. It’s been difficult to juggle both the album and The House Blend so I’ve had to post less. That’s frustrating for me because I love working on this blog and creating cool content! But I did have the chance to curate this beautiful photoshoot with my fabulous photographer, Amie Akers, for the album […]

Bomber and Blues

I have to say I’m pretty excited that bomber jackets have made a comeback! They’re the perfect mix of military and comfort. I’ve paired it with denim and brogue boots for the perfect balance of trends and basics.

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 […]

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 […]
