Favorites File: BaubleBar


Happy Monday! Today I want to introduce you to a new series here on the blog filed under Favorites, a new category where I will be sharing favorite brands, shops, blogs, apps, you name it. I already have a long list of blogs/brands I want to share with you, and today I'm kicking off the series with one of my favorite shops for fashion jewelry: BaubleBar.

Not only do I love their products, but their packaging is seriously beautiful, I love love love opening their boxes and seeing that bright pop of pink with the black and white tissue paper inside (I should have photographed that!), I think I get as excited for the packaging as for the contents ;) Right now I'm obsessed with ear jackets and I love this set (3 pairs for $48) that they introduced not long ago (such a great idea). I'm also loving these earrings, which are trendy but very delicate and sophisticated.

I want to give you the heads up that even though I did receive some of these as gifts, this is not a sponsored post, I just felt really inspired to take some snaps last week and wanted to share my genuine love for the brand, which by the way, is exactly what I would do if this was sponsored as I only partner up with brands I truly love :) Did that sound confusing? lol

Anyway, wishing you all a wonderful week!

Crystal Ray Ear Jackets, c/o one of my favorites right now :)



Maharaja Necklace (no longer available), Crystal Feather Bib



Zig zag earrings c/o (no longer available)

Fashion File: Madewell Spring Preview


Madewell is probably my favorite store, and the latest looks from what's to come for Spring are making me even more excited for warmer weather. I love that the whole collection is filled with updated classics, denim (their jeans are among my absolute faves!) beautiful textures, and military inspired pieces, and of course, the muted palette (with some pops of reds and corals) is right up my alley ;) Let's take a look at my favorite outfits :)

Effortless and comfortable, no doubt about that!

Loving this dress and the cut-outs, and how about those flats?

Denim on denim? yes plase! Even though I'm not a fan of flared jeans, that top is calling my name ;)

You can count on this: Criss-cross sandals will be everywhere ;)

Super super cute jumpsuit! Dress it up with heels and a blazer for a night out ;)

Loving this blush and coral combo!

Denim, oxfords, stripes...

You will never see me wearing overalls but that perforated top looks amazing to me ;)

Let's take notes on how to dress down jumpsuits. And, let's add that tote to our wish list, wouldn't it be perfect as a beach tote?

Outfits File: Black and White Stripes


While in Miami I enlisted my mom to take some outfit photos for me because let me tell you, doing outfit photos in the freezing cold here in Toronto is not an easy task, ask my friend Jenny, we have lost our fingers several times (ok, I'm exaggerating, but it seriously feels that way) while doing so. So of course I had to take advantage of the beautiful weather, and I really wanted to share this outfit because those Spitfire sunglasses at $24 (regularly $39!) and that top from Forever 21 at $18, are seriously a good deal. I have received a ton of compliments on the sunglasses and I've witnessed a lot of surprised faces when I tell people that the top is from Forever 21 ;)

Wearing: J.Crew earrings (sold out, long version, similar, similar vintage option) / BaubleBar Ear clip c/o (from this set) / Spitfire Helix Cat Eye Sunglasses (on sale for $24) / Forever 21 Sateen Trapeze Top / J.O.A. laser cut faux leather skirt (similar) / Nine West Jaiden Pointed Toe Booties




My Life File: Photos from Disney World


Happy Monday!! On Sunday morning Matthew and I left the warm and sunny Miami days behind us and got back home to Toronto (thank Goodness the weather wasn't too bad yesterday). We arrived early in the morning and went straight to brunch, then rested a bit and I couldn't help it but clean the apartment, do some laundry, and get some groceries (nothing like starting the week off right!). I also went through the photos I took at Disney World and Miami, so here is the first part of a little re-cap, hope you enjoy it! :)

PS: The second week of January is perfect for visiting the parks, the line-ups (if any) were super short, and we were able to get on the rides 2-3 times each :) Our average wait was probably 10-15 minutes, with just two roller coasters with a 30 minutes wait, not bad at all :)


Happy Weekend!


Hoping you all have a wonderful weekend! I'll be spending my last days in Miami, soaking in all the warmth and wishing this trip didn't come to an end ;) Here are a few links to check out if you'd like to ;)
