The Canadian Screen Awards

As a Canadian I like to support Canadian products and achievements. Although award shows aren't my thing, when a friend offered tickets to the Canadian Screen Awards, I had to jump on the offer. Hosted by the ever so funny Martin Short, it turned out to be a wonderful night, filled with friends, laughs and wine! A well deserved break from my crazy schedule during midterms, dressing up and having a night out with the girls was heavenly. My outfit was both playful and sophisticated. With a flowy satin dress, paired with a structured jacket to ensure the best of both worlds. Here's a shot from my evening! Congrats to all the Canadians and once again I am so proud to be Canadian. Enjoy!

Winter Brights Fill me with Delight

As a Canadian, I endure extremely long winters, beginning often in November and lasting well into March, sometimes even April. What makes the short days filled with little sun a little brighter is dressing, well brighter. This season fashion reflected this idea with lots of bright sweaters and bags. My personal favourite bright being bubble gum pink, this is just one of my many bright items. The best part about brights, they transition perfectly into spring. So when the somewhat awkward progression happens, from winter to spring, you have the perfect mid-seasonal change ready to go! Why no enjoy the winter as best you can with fun colours!

These Boots Were Made For Strutting

I am head over wedges in love with these boots, they are over the knee, black suede heeled wedges with a gold zipper along the back. These sky-scraper boots have a 5in heel but feel like I'm walking on air. I have had the same pair of knee-high heeled booties for quite some time and wore the life out of them, thus the replacement. Heeled booties are an essential for every chic woman's wardrobe as they replace heels during the dullest months of the winter. Easier to walk in and much warmer for your feet and legs, knee high or over the knee boots are a must. So here's mine, paired with a casual dress for a night at the bar. Also perfect with jeans, skirts and legginings. I wear these boots to work, school and out. Enjoy!

Bring on the New Year

Happy 2013 Everyone!!!

I first want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season! I love the holidays and the whole month of December because it is all about giving, spreading cheer and trying to be a better 'you'. This year I reflected back on 2012 and realized I accomplished a lot and am really proud of myself. Last year I made an extremely long list of resolutions and things I wanted to accomplished and I succeed in almost everything. This year I am looking to do more of the same. I graduate from university this spring which means many things are going to change. But as always I want to approach each challenge and opportunity with grace, style and determination. My biggest, or rather, most pressing and important resolution is to write my grandmother's memoir. Let me know what your resolutions are! Here's a picture from Christmas Eve with my older brother and my younger sister. Enjoy and Bring on the New Year!!!
