I’m so excited to share the 2nd of 3 posts wearing my favorite dresses from the Jill Jill Stuart Fall and Holiday Collections. It was really hard to choose my top pieces from the collections, but as soon as I saw this stunning hand-cut floral strapless dress, there was no question in my mind that this was at the top of my list. It fits like a glove, and the color is just so pretty. I wore this to a holiday party last week, and I couldn’t stop looking down at all of the gorgeous little flowers.


Since we had so much snow last week, Gaby and I slipped into our favorite cupcake spot to take these photographs. If you are ever in Toronto, Desmond & Beatrice is a must visit for the best cupcakes you’ll ever eat.

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I took these photos 2 weeks ago when I was visiting my hometown for our annual family reunion. My Mother has a very large extended family, and each year, over 60 of us gather together for a delicious Christmas lunch. I usually dress a little more festively, but I was antsy to wear this fabulous faux leather skirt, so classic black and white it was.

TGIF! I am particularly excited to share today’s post with all of you. Living in the Beautiful North, you would think that I would have a huge wardrobe full of cold weather pieces to keep me nice and toasty this time of year, however, I’ve always struggled to find the perfect winter coat that keeps me super warm but doesn’t make me look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man . . . until now.


Meet Eleven Elfs, my newest obsession, and the absolute most perfect winter coat I’ve ever worn. When Eleven Elfs approached me a couple of months ago to try one of their coats, I was a little hesitant because I’ve had bad luck with puffy coats in the past, where they usually overwhelm my frame and make me look huge. I visited their showroom to check out their full collection, and as soon as I tried on one of their beautiful coats, I was in L-O-V-E.


I was blown away by how soft and lightweight all of the Eleven Elfs coats are. Filled with 90% premium down and 10% feather, this coat keeps me oh-so-cozy and warm while outside in the elements, but it’s so lightweight that it somehow magically keeps me comfortable (and not overly heated) when inside a building or shopping in the mall. It’s washable so I don’t have to worry about dry cleaning, and it’s water repellant, which means water and snow just slide right off of it without making it damp. The coat is really flexible too, so my movements don’t feel restricted.


I can honestly say that this is my ideal winter coat. I’ve been telling all of my friends about it for weeks, and I’m thrilled to finally share it with you all. This is an investment piece but absolutely worth every penny. Now that the weather here is colder, I’ve been wearing it non-stop for the last two weeks, and I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve received. I will most definitely be picking this coat up in another color. Now, the difficulty is just choosing which one! If you’re in the market for a new warm winter coat, I highly recommend this awesome Eleven Elfs coat.
