Break out the White Blazer

We are finally approaching summer and I am so glad. Why? Summer whites! I am totally in love with wearing white pants, white blazers, shoes, tops! The white colour palette for the seasons is beautiful – you can use it as a pop, you can do a monochrome look, you can use it to accessorize!

White Blazer: Suzy Shier (similar here and here) / Top: Winners (similar here and here) / Jeans: Ralph Lauren (similar here) / Flats: mark. by Avon (similar here) / Bag: Aldo (similar here and here)

I picked this white blazer up a couple of years ago, and it has been my summer staple ever since. It brightens the entire look. I went with a coloured top underneath that had traces of white in the pattern to make the blazer pop even more. This was more of a casual look, so cropped jeans was the way to go.

Finally, I went the more accessory-less route because of how strong the pattern is in the top. I matched the bag to the shoes in an off neutral colour to not take away from the focal point of the outfit.

Mother’s Day was this past Sunday and I got to share the day with my whole family, including my mother and Grandmother! It was such a lovely day, the sun was shining and I couldn’t have asked for a better time spent with my family.

Enjoy!

The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again…the time when we honour all of our hardworking, sweet, caring and loving mothers who have always been there for us time and time again. This is one of my favourite days because I get to spend the entire day with my mother and grandmother – quality time is the best time! With Mother’s Day right around the corner, it’s time to go out and get a nice gift for that special lady. This gift guide, hopefully will spark some ideas…

ZAPPOS PINK & WHITE SCARF / KATE SPADE ‘MOM KNOWS BEST’ ELEPHANT NECKLACE / CHLOE FRAGRANCE / KENDRA SCOTT DROP EARRINGS / KATE SPADE ‘MOM KNOWS BEST’ GIRAFFE NECKLACE / OLD NAVY TASSEL SADDLE PURSE / NEIMAN MARCUS BUCKET BAG / CHLOE SUNGLASSES / CHLOE LOVE STORY BODY LOTION / JONATHAN ADLER CANDLE / JCPENNEY DECO PILLOW


MY FAVOURITES

I personally believe that any Mom would love nothing more than quality time with their children and a giant hug on Mother’s Day, but it is nice to show your appreciation and love for them through a present that you really know they will love! Here are my current faves for this year:

Kate Spade ‘Mom Knows Best’ Elephant Necklace

Kate_Spade_Necklace

Kate Spade makes the best jewelry, right? I love how simple the pieces are and this one necklace is one step better than your typical ‘MOM’ necklace spelled out. This is representative of your relationship and I love how the trunks of the elephants are linked – something I know my momma would love!!

Neiman Marcus Bucket Bag

Neiman_Marcus_Bag

I am really loving the colour blush these days. Moms tend to carry a ton of stuff in their bags – that’s not a criticism, it’s the truth. Moms carry everything from mints, to their favourite book (at least, my momma does!). This is the perfect bag for the Mom who carries her life in her bag – and the colour is totally in style!

Chloe Sunglasses

Sunnies

The colour is a tad out there…I mean, I typically go for the black sunglasses, but these are progressive and fun! Chloe makes the best sunnies and these are so much fun for the sunny season!!

Mother’s Day is an important day out of the year – it’s a time for us to stop and think about the women who work so hard to make our lives amazing! They are the women who raised us and so this is a day for us to give back to them!! For this reason, don’t hold back when it comes to showing your appreciation, for example you could try these Cambridge punting experiences if you have a little extra cash to spend this year; Cambridge is famous for its punting boats and it makes for an ultra relaxing day. For something a little closer to home, call up your Mom and book a brunch table because this day should be the most special out of the entire year for you and your momma!

Happy Mother’s Day!
