Two weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending the North American Fur & Fashion Exposition in Montreal (NAFFEM) with my girl Christina from The Style Mogul. We were honoured to be asked by the Fur Council of Canada to be 2 of 9 bloggers to participate in the NAFFEM Style Lab. I will share some more details and photos of the event soon, but in the mean time, here is what I wore to the expo.
Deciding what to wear was more challenging than I anticipated. I had to choose an outfit that was pretty and somewhat professional, yet showed my personal style. I needed layers in case I was too warm or too hot, and I definitely needed comfy shoes since I would be on my feet all day. This was the outfit I finally decided upon. Christina snapped these photos for me as we were leaving the trade show. Thanks girl!
Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
Since the weather has been getting warmer, I’ve been living in this pretty pink and blue striped BCBG coat. I picked it up on our way to Chicago last month at an outlet mall in Indiana.
The original price of this jacket was $268, marked down to $119, which was a little too high for me. I tried it on anyway and of course fell in love. I asked the sales associate if there were any further discounts on the coat, and he said no. Sadly, I put it back on the rack, but then the sales associate said he could check the price just in case. To my sheer delight, the coat rang up at only $49! Obviously, I couldn’t pass it up at that price!
My lesson learned, and my outlet shopping tip for you, is to ALWAYS ask a sales associate to check the price of an item if price is deterring you from making the purchase. Hopefully, it may be cheaper than marked on the tag.
P.S. I’m excited to be linking up with sweet Jane on her blog Toronto Shopoholic for her #waywewear light wash denim series. Check it out!

When I was uploading these photos, I realized that I’ve been wearing a lot of pink and yellow over the last couple of weeks (as seen here and here). Probably because this colour combination screams “Spring”, and I’m so ready for Winter to be over. I’m loving any shade of pink with yellow right now, including pastel pink and the dress that I’m wearing in these photos which has more of a coral hue.
These photos were taken last week in Old Town Scottsdale, Arizona. It was so nice to bust out the summer wardrobe, and it really put me in warm weather mode. I’ve decided that I’m officially done with wearing pantyhose or tights until next Fall. I might regret that decision tomorrow when our temps will be near the freezing mark, but I’ll stay strong.
Despite the cold weather, I’m really looking forward to this weekend. My parents and brother are coming to Toronto for a visit, which means a great few days full of family, fun and food. Do you have any big weekend plans? I hope you all have a great one!
Some of you may have seen on Instagram that I’m currently in Scottsdale, Arizona. I’m pretty lucky that my work sent me here to take a marketing course. Justin has never been to Arizona, so he tagged along with me, and while I’m stuck in a meeting room all day, he’s sipping margaritas by the pool and enjoying the desert air. Okay, I can’t complain. . . we tacked on a few extra days to the trip so I could enjoy the beautiful weather and sightseeing too. I’ll share some pics soon.
I also want to mention that I had the honour of being featured in Framework Magazine’s April Blogger Panel. Framework is a fabulous online magazine dedicated to the essential elements of stylish living. Thanks Framework!
