Oh So Lovely

It's Friday and what better way to celebrate than with some fun tunes?! Loving the new music from Danish singer Oh Land. She has such a beautiful voice and a refreshing, upbeat sound. Check out these songs and her album is also pretty amazing!

Such a fun live performance. Love the sweet xylophone sound.

Sunny Disposition

The weather has taken a wonderful turn to be full of sunshine and warm temps. Amazing how that can instantly lift your mood and make the day seem so carefree. I even snuck in some time to to lay by pool yesterday in the lovely but unusual 80 degree weather. I felt like the luckiest girl and can not wait for more sunny days ahead.

Loving these wood bangles that would brighten any day!

Breakin the Rules

Gap Shirt, Bottega Veneta Belt, Joe's Jeans, Marc by Marc Jacobs Purse, Family Antique Necklace, Rings: Off Saks & Forever 21, Foster Grant Sunnies, BCBG Flats

I love to try new things, especially in fashion. Recently I was inspired by Charlize Theron's denim on denim outfit. I tried this look out for myself & had fun with it.

Tips for trying a double denim ensemble:
  • Keep the denims in completely different washes. The most flattering is a dark denim on the bottom half & a lighter denim on the top.
  • Wearing it with neutral & classic accessories to let the denim do the talking.
  • Confidence & a sense of humor. You are wearing a Canadian Tuxedo after all:)

Love these pearl snap buttons!

Style Icon

Elizabeth Taylor has been a source of inspiration to me thru her glamourous style, tenacity of life, and compassion towards others. She had a heart and spirit larger than life, and I loved seeing her on film. I also loved her passion for jewelry. She will surely be missed and I know her legacy will continue to inspire.

Just Glorious

Spring is here and flowers are beautifully blooming! This past weekend I went to Filoli with my family. I love visiting this amazing estate and seeing the gorgeous gardens. I would definitely recommend planning a visit soon to check out the tulips and daffodils while they are still in bloom.

Happy St. Patty's Day!

I am not sure why I love this holiday so much. Maybe it's because I am part Irish or just the fact that the color green makes me so happy.

Here's my touch of green to celebrate this fun day.

Electric Feel

One of my main inspirations is color. Right now I am obsessed with electric blue. I loved seeing this color pop on the runway. I can't wait to incorporate more of this color into my wardrobe in any way, I just love how vibrant & joyful it is.
