Positive Mindset

March 20, 2017

There is nothing quite like finding the perfect motivational quote to start off your week right!

Starting off your week on the right foot is all about a positive attitude going in.  At times it may feel easier to focus your thoughts on what’s not going right in your life, but in the long run it’s a whole lot more straining on you physically and mentally.  Don’t get me wrong, we all have bad days, but in order to keep a positive mindset it is important to keep your energy focused around the positive!  I have put together a list of a few of my favourite motivational quotes (along with some pretty pictures) to get you in that great state of mind!  Let’s rock the week ahead!  Do you have a favourite quote that keeps your motivation up?  I’d love to hear it in the comments below!

5 Ways to Style a Slip Dress

March 9, 2017

When it comes to wearability, a slip dress has got to be up there on my list of favourites.  I don’t mind having to splurge on one because I know just how often I will be wearing it.  If you are looking for your first slip dress, I recommend looking for one in a neutral palette.  If you are like me a like a little punch of colour, simply choose one in a palette you often wear.  Finding a slip dress in a light weight material is definitely an essential as it adds to the versatility of the piece.  And lastly, don’t be afraid of those delicate details like lace, beading or soft prints.  A slip dress is meant to add a little punch to an outfit or stand out on it’s own, you don’t want something that’s simply going to just blend and bore in your wardrobe.  With that said, here are 5 of my favourite ways to style a slip dress:

  1. Layered over skinny jeans topped with a baggy cardigan.
  2. Topped with a leather jacket paired with mules: If your slip dress is something a little more sheer like mine, make sure to pair it with appropriate undergarments i.e. a slip.
  3. Over a t-shirt and pleather leggings topped with OTK boots and a blanket scarf.
  4. Over a long sleeve shirt and paired with ripped denim.
  5. As a coverup: Headed on vacation?  A slip dress plays double duty not only being the perfect beach coverup but works wonders with layers for the journey to your tropical destination.

Transitioning into Spring with Sweater Dresses

February 23, 2017

You know those days when all you want to wear is a dress but it’s still just a little too cold out?  As we transition into spring, now is the perfect time for sweater dresses!  Here are 3 tips I use when looking for the perfect spring sweater dress.

  1. Feminine Details: ruffles, a pop of colour, bold prints or a hint of lace really make one sweater dress standout from the next.
  2. Lightweight: a heavy knit sweater dress is anything but comfortable when the weather is all over the place.
  3. Fantastic Fit: Whether you like something with a more boxy fit (like the ones I’m wearing) or something that hugs your curves, find a fit that feels fantastic on you!  Length is also something that should not be overlooked.  Think about what bottoms you plan on wearing with the sweater dress before committing to a length.
