Dotted Jeans & Peplum Top

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Outfit deets:
* Imaginary Voyage peplum top which you've seen with a green pencil skirt.
* Rewash dotted denim which I purchased the first time I went to Vegas.
* Liliana wedges which you've seen with a black and white dress and also on vacation in Punta Cana back in April.
* Accessories: Emily Elizabeth necklace, Material Girl cuff & G21 sunnies.

This peplum top has been in my closet since last summer, it wasn't expensive (under $30) and I wore it a few times but this summer it has been getting a ton of play.  I find myself reaching for it with skirts, denim and other pants, so much so that I have to stop myself from wearing it weekly.  Does that ever happen to you?  You develop a deep love for something you've had for a while?

Also, while I've been somewhat obsessed with neutrals lately, I could not deny how stellar these shoes looked with these jeans.  They popped in colour against the tone of this denim that I set aside my nude pumps and just went for it with the neon.  Then again, only a handful of more weeks to really rock sandals and bright neons before the snow flies so might as well take advantage.

VIDEO | Fiddler Lake Resort Weekend

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Remember a couple weekends ago when I went to that cottage with 15 friends?  

Well, I made a little video.  

I wasn't planning on it, but then we got in the car and I got excited thinking about a music montage vlog I could whip up as a keepsake to our weekend... and so, after several hours of editing, here it is.  

Thanks for watching! xo

Faux Leather Blazer & Burgundy Dance Leggings

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Outfit deets:
* Dynamite faux leather blazer (new!).
* C'est Moi tank (old) which you've seen a long time ago with my favourite scarf and on the weekend almost a year ago during a photography course.
* Boathouse leggings (new!).
* Accessories:  Dolce & Gabanna glasses.

After Marco and I filmed my next video for Place d'Orleans on the weekend, he started to snap a couple shots of me sitting on the couch... turns out the man has a serious hidden talent!  While he won't be replacing Serena anytime soon, I had to share these shots he got of me on our new couch.  There are even a few that would make great head shots... if I ever needed that sort of thing... with my hair up.

Also, I'll be sharing these items in my video later this week but PDO has the blazer and leggings in store right now, so run, if you're in the area and looking to scoop them up.  This blazer totally reminds me of the olive green/faux leather one I picked up this time last year (see it in an outfit post here)--such a great silhouette and price point.

Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Monday, August 18, 2014

On Friday night I went to Nature Nocturne at the Museum of Nature; a once monthly event where they turn the museum into a night club with multiple rooms with different DJ's and sounds and more. Since it was the kick off to Pride Week here in Ottawa, this one had a burlesque and drag Queen show which was so fun to watch.

There was this huge octopus that hung from the ceiling and changed colours; trust me when I saw it was a huge photo-op to anyone with an Instagram account (ha).

Mini Week Recap

Friday, August 15, 2014

This week has been busy--my own doing--with something happening every night.  I don't usually jam pack my schedule, but this week just ended up that way and now I have a weekend with very little plans planned and that's quite alright with me.
On Monday and Wednesday I met up with a friend and we worked out.

I painted my nails with OPI's, 'Mod About You' which is a milky pink that's really pretty but, it's similar to an opaque white where, once it starts to chip, it looks really bad, really fast.
