grey day

pants (Laura); wrap top (Banana Republic); grey tank (Fairweather); shoes (Spring); ring (Banana Republic)

I am in love with the colour grey right now!

And one of my favourite combinations is grey and yellow. Swoon.

As you can see, wrapping is one of my favourite things to do. I recommend it to everybody! Ha!

Have a fantastic weekend!

the b/f.

Pray for him. Indeed.
(please excuse the mess of a room behind him...we're in the middle of major cleaning!)

capris (Suzy Shier); top (Walmart); flats (Payless); ring (Banana Republic)

I am a shoe gal.

Love every kind of shoe - running shoes, sandals, peep-toes, flats, heels. I LOVE heels.

I do have a new appreciation for flats though. I wear them to work, from work and on weekends. Is it a sign of getting older that I can't handle high heels for long periods of time anymore?? Eek!

Going into Payless last week, I saw tons of super cute flats at great prices - so, in true shoe-nista fashion - I had to pick up a few pairs. It is a new season :)

wrap it up!

cardigan (Forever 21); pants (Reitmans); grey tank (Fairweather); necklace (Banana Republic)

Since I wore a wrap top earlier in the week and liked how it looked on me, I decided to re-create a similar silhouette with an open front cardi. I love the material of this one - so soft!

I really like how it turned out. Some people thought it was a top and with the belt to the side, it looked like a one-piece.

So part of dressing my best means highlighting my small-ish waist. Ok :)

hanging out.

top (Winners); black capris (Reitmans); bead necklace (Jacob)

Nothing too exciting here.

I spied these capris hanging in my closet and then my eyesight fell on the purple top. A match was made!

Sorry it's so dark...I think my favourite pose is leaning against the wall. Ha!

Have a great hump day folks!

jeans (Reitmans); coral wrap-top (Banana Republic); black tank (Fairweather); earrings (ALDO); necklace (Pish Posh); ring (Banana Republic); shoes (Le Chateau)

I have discoverd that wrap-tops are super flattering on me.

I do have to be careful though because of the hefty heavies I carry up top. Ha! It can throw off my body proportions.

It's a long-standing joke between my b/f and I about dinner. He usually cooks and he has yet to see me really make him a meal. I'm a good Greek girl and let me tell ya, I can cook. Problem is, I can cook large quantities. I have to figure out how to tone it down for 2!

Last night I tried my hand at chicken cacciatore. I was actually really nervous to make it for him. In the past, I've made fajitas, egg mcmuffins, etc you know...little things. This was a meal. turned out AMAZING! Seriously. Am definitely gonna float my own boat here because it was delicious.

I can cook! Or atleast I have proven to my love that I can provide meals for him.

Sunday: jeans (Reitmans); grey top (Winners); black jacket (Reitmans)

Friday: brown capris (Suzy Shier); white top (Ricki's); denim jacket (GAP); statement necklace (Banana Republic)

Was it gorgeous weather where you were this past weekend?

It was amazing here!

Friday my boss let me go home early so I could run some errands and make dinner for some friends. I started off making quesadillas and they turned into fajitas! Super yummy nonetheless. My outfit was inspired by Kimberly at Fab Finds Under 50 (the first blog I ever started reading!) I've mentioned before how I love jewellery from Banana Republic and that's where this is from.

Sunday was so beautiful that the b/f and I went downtown to what we call our Market area. We ate lunch on a patio and strolled the outdoor vendors. I felt very chic walking about with my sparkly top. Sequins for day? Yes, please!

maxi dress (Winners); denim blazer (Winners); bracelets (don't remember)

Please excuse the look on my face. It was after a very long day and I was pooped!

I bought these wonderful maxi dresses last year (after discovering a few super flattering ones when I had thought that this was a trend I was going to have to pass on) and then noticed a few bloggers teaming them with a jacket to make them work-appropriate. Good job ladies!!

Great shoes, eh?? Ha! I teamed this get-up with some muted silver flats.

It was a perfect outfit for work and then super comfortable enough for me to wear to an outing at a museum.

Have a fabulous weekend!!

top (H&M); pants (Reitmans); shoes (Winners); necklace (Banana Republic)

I love this top.

I first ever saw it on a blog I read (I have forgotten which one) and then on a shopping trip to Montreal, found it in H&M!
I love it but while it fits in the sleeves, it is a large shirt. I'm thinking of taking it to my tailor to see if she can do anything with it. Pull it in somewhere...not sure...

My eyes are red because I spent the afternoon meeting some hospital families that we are featuring at our annual Telethon. We watched a preview of their pre-taped stories and are amazing. I can't really say more than that. It definitely makes you feel good about being alive and healthy.

Hug a loved one today!

end of week.

top (Walmart); jeans (GAP); slippers

This was last Friday's outfit.

I bought this top at Walmart a few weeks ago thinking it will look amazing with white pants for the summer. On Friday it was just begging to be worn so I paired it with my dark denim for work. I like the waist definition and pearl buttons on it.

Walmart has been getting some super cute flowy tops lately and at fabulous prices. This one was only $12. Not bad for a top I know will get lots of wear.

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

suiting up.

black suit (Reitmans); green top (Banana Republic); necklace (Top Shop); bracelets (Club Monaco); shoes (Spring)

I love wearing a suit.

Even more, I love wearing a mix and match suit - instead of matchy-matchy. Now in this case, I do realize it's all black but it's a different textured black jacket than the pants. And I have a few other skirt and pant suits that I mix up texture and colour.

The touches of colour in the green and yellow make me feel very chic and dare I say, powerful when I have them together like this.

I have an extra bounce in my step and a twinkle in my eye and a sparkle in my confidence with this outfit.

Gotta love the power of a suit.
