Just when I thought I could finally pack up my winter coats and pull out my spring jackets, Mother Nature turned on me . . . again. Although, I really can’t complain considering my Canadian family and friends have been slammed with a horrendous never-ending winter this year. I feel for you guys 😉

The weather yesterday did, however, give me an excuse to wear these gorgeous colorblock boots from Ross. The crystal collar and boots give this business look the perfect amount of dazzle for the work week. It adds style without being over-the-top for the office. You may want to add tights depending on your weather. I probably should have, considering it started to snow just as I finished taking photos (as you can probably tell in my last pic). Hopefully, that photo will be my very last with snow for a while!

Casual Cool

Starting off the week with a casual cool look that is both stylish and practical. The weather has been all over the place lately, but this outfit felt perfect during the day and once it cooled down, the cardigan added just the right amount of warmth.

The Fossil bag shown in this look has been one of my favorites for years, but I have to say I am loving their new Sydney Satchel, it’s gorgeous! I find that Fossil has such great quality leather handbags without over-the-top prices. Can’t wait to see the upcoming collections!

Looking for the perfect outfit for exploring the city in the warmer months to come? Try styling a black drop-waist dress and glitter kicks for a casual look with a playful flare. Black dresses are always chic. Style it with your heels for work and quickly swap them for your Keds before running a few errands or meeting friends in the city!

Working Denim

At my work place, we can only wear jeans on casual Friday, so naturally I found another way to incorporate denim. Denim button-ups are so easy to transition from winter to summer. It was still pretty chilly when I chose this look, but I’ll definitely be styling my denim shirt with shorts and skirts in the months to come. I’ve linked a few denim options above that I’m currently loving…

Bright Beauty

When the weather is gloomy, it’s hard to feel motivated throughout the week. That’s where the power of brights comes in! I find that throwing on a bright blouse, jacket, or accessory, can completely turn your day around. Hot pink and orange automatically make me think of Spring and Summer, and let’s face it, we all love those few months out of the year. Sunshine, patios, picnics, barbecues, and pool time — need I say more? Fortunately, Spring is just around the corner, but until then I’ll have to settle for bright layers!

When I was planning my wedding, I spent countless hours browsing wedding photography. Bridal shots and couple shots were always my favorite. There is just something about wedding photos that I always find so inspiring, and to this day I still enjoy looking through wedding magazines and wedding blogs. When I worked as a bridal stylist, I absolutely loved witnessing the bride’s reaction when she found “the” dress. It was a joy to be able to contribute to such an important day in a person’s life. I have a feeling that my time working in the wedding industry is not quite finished yet 😉

Now that I’ve had my special day, I thought I would share some bridal glamour shots for all of those brides-to-be out there!

Edgy Meets Effortless

Starting off the week with a laid-back look that makes a statement. I love that these leggings aren’t your traditional leopard print. The black and gold leopard give this effortless look a little extra edge. However, if you are looking for a more feminine way to style these, try pairing them with a skirt and heels for a flirty and fun look!

Color Me Crazy

I’m all about neutrals, but I can’t resist a colorful blouse that you can style multiple ways. I chose to pair this blouse with a navy skirt, rather than black, for something a little different. Adding multiple colored accessories brings out the various colors in the blouse without being over-the-top or detracting from the look. Sometimes you just need a little color to brighten up your day 😉

Side Tracked

Once again, I’m wearing a black and gray combo. I can’t seem to get enough of these shades, but adding the fuchsia bag gives the look a focal point. On a side note, I’m loving the look of these midi boots with patterned tights, and it doesn’t hurt that they are extremely comfortable. I’ve been wearing them to work all week, and they were definitely worth the money!

(Fur)ocious

Feeling (fur)ocious in my faux fur scarf, sheer blouse, and jewel toned accessories for today’s look. This is such a great outfit for the weekend, and the faux fur scarf is so warm and cozy! The jewel toned handbag and boots add a rich pop of color without being over the top, and compliment the tortoise jewelry perfectly. If you are not a fan of adding multiple colors to your look, start with adding one bold hue and go from there!
