A Little Lace and a Update

Hey lovelies! Sorry for not blogging sooner but due to moving, packing for a vaca/besties wedding in Cali and not having internet (I'm currently coming to you via Starbucks), it has been quite difficult.  Talk about craziness & so much excitement!

There is no doubt that I am a lover of lace & sparkle.  There is something about the two textures that makes me feel so lady like.  I feel like this outfit would’ve been so cute to wear for brunch or to a tea but I just wore it for a day in the city.  Sometimes it's just nice to dress up with no where to go.

As Ty and I are off to Cali tomorrow, I won't be back to the blog until Monday, August 5th!  But stay tuned for all the fun details from our adventures.

Have a wonderful day,

Bow Crazy!

There is no doubt that I'm currently craving everything bows! When I first stumbled upon this pair of bow denim I gasped!  How cute are they!?  I was doubting they would fit as I often have a hard time finding denim that fits properly, I can't stand when it sits low on my hips and are constantly falling down!  But apparently it was meant to be as they fit exactly how I like.  Yay!
In other news, if you follow me on Instagram you will know I'm in the process of moving.  We have had a few hiccups along the way but by the end of next week we are hoping to be settled in to our new place (well at least down to minimal boxes).  Wish us luck!

Lace & Leopard

In attempt to beat the heat, I've been sporting this sun hat over and over again.  It's the perfect protection from the sun while still being so chic.  In combination with this hat I decided to pair it with lace and leopard.  I've always been a huge fan of combining textures and prints, I feel that it gives an outfit such definition.  What are you currently wearing to beat the heat?

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Hi lovelies!  I am so excited to share with you my favourite muffin recipe, banana chocolate chip!  As a kid I always enjoyed when my parents would make these muffins for my brother and I for breakfast on the odd occasion.  It was always such a treat.  Now I want to share it with you.  I've modified this recipe which was originally from Company's Coming- Muffins and More.  I hope you are able to try out this fantastic recipe at home and enjoy these delicious muffins!

What you'll need:
All purpose flour- 1 3/4 cups
Sugar- 1/2 cup
Baking powder- 3 tsp.
Semi-sweet chocolate chips- 1/2 cup

Egg- 1
Coconut oil- 1/4 cup
Skim milk- 1/4 cup
Mashed bananas- 1 cup

Instructions: Mix the first four ingredients together.  After melting the coconut oil and beating the egg add in last four ingredients and stir.  Place the mixed ingredients into a muffin pan, each cup 3/4 full. Bake in the oven at 400 F for 17-20 minutes until muffins are browned.  Let cool and enjoy!

Recipe adapted from Company's Coming- Muffins & More by Jean Pare. (Fourth Edition July 1985)

Happy Weekend,

Chevron Print

Hey lovelies! I hope you've been having a lovely week.  I had so much fun this past weekend with my family, it was hard to watch them go home.  I meant to get to the blog sooner but unfortunately right before I was about to shoot some blog pics on Monday we had a huge rain storm.  It poured for hours causing a lot of floods and delays in transit.  It was pretty crazy. 
While on my shopping adventures this weekend I bought this fab maxi.  I am in love with this colourful chevron print.  Even with a simple t-shirt it feels so put together.  

Wearing: Skirt from Honey, T-shirt [Target], Necklace old [H&M], Flip flops gifted, Sunnies [Little Burgundy].

Thank you Qunshuo Ma for the photography.

Have a great day,

Sparkles For Day

I am a huge fan of sparkle, whether it's on a piece of jewelry or a garment.  I find that a lot of people shy away from sparkle thinking it's only for special occasions.  I say be adventurous and wear that sparkle.  Trust me, you'll be glad you did.  You always feel so much better when you are loving what you're wearing and what girl doesn't love wearing some sparkle?  I wore this last outfit last week for lunch with a friend.  I kept things on the more casual side by pairing this sequin top with flats and my fav boyfriend shorts.

Today my mom and brother are flying to the city to visit me, I'm SO excited to spend some time with them!  I will be cherishing every moment with them...and probably hugging them 10 times a day.  While they are here we will be celebrating my mom's birthday, she's a July 4th baby!  Often, our family would travel to the states for her birthday because there was always something fun going on on her big day.  This year, I have some fun things planned for her here in Toronto...but more on that later.
Wearing: Top, Shoes & Necklace [J.Crew], Shorts similar [Gap], Sunnies not online [Zara]

I hope you have the most happy Wednesday, (And to all my American friends, Happy (early) 4th!).
