FRINGE //

Friday, 29 September 2017










Sweater: c/o Windsor Store | Jeans: c/o Mavi Jeans | Heels: c/o Le Château | Sunnies: c/o Zero UV Bag: Prada | Hat: Lack of Colour

Now that the weather is getting chilly I have officially started stocking up on all the cozy chunky knits. This sweater I actually picked up last year but still love it - super comfy and such a cute lace up detail in the front. I also recently received these jeans from Mavi and they have been on repeat - the fringe detail at the bottom are to die for - such a fun way to switch up your regular denim.

BLUSH WRAP COAT //

Jacket: c/o Le Château | Denim: c/o Dynamite | Shoes: Garment Project | Bag: Gucci

Well it seems as though I blinked and Fall is in full swing! Time seriously flies! I think I say this every year but Fall is my favourite time of year for fashion - there's nothing like cozy layers. I have been loving this wrap coat from Le Château for my everyday wear - super comfy and in the most gorgeous shade of blush. I can also take this right into winter with a heavier coat overtop and a great toque.

Recently Danny and I visited one of our favorite cities - LA! We love going to LA because the weather is always beautiful and it's only a 2 hour plane ride away. It also has some of the most instagrammable spots I can think of because let's be real - we do it for the gram. 

When we go to LA we always prefer to stay in West Hollywood. It's super close to everything (our most expensive uber was $17) and it homes some of our favorite spots. We stayed at The Carlyle Inn which is located right on Robertson BLVD and a 20 minute walk or $5 uber ride away from hot spots like Alfred Tea, Gracias Madre, Catch, etc. etc. We absolutely LOVED the location but also the hotel in general. It has a gorgeous black and white striped court yard (did I mention doing it for the gram yet?), with sun chairs and adorable umbrellas for enjoying the California sun. We were also pleasantly surprised to learn it came with complimentary breakfast and wait for it.. COMPLEMENTARY HAPPY HOUR!! Sorry for yelling but I seriously couldn't believe that last one. We definitely took advantage of both! The breakfast was awesome because we would get ready, grab a quick bite downstairs, and head out site seeing. And it wasn't all muffins and bagels like some comp'd breakfasts can be - I'm talking eggs, hashbrowns, waffles, sausages - you name it! We also grabbed a few happy hour bevs one night before heading out to dinner - it was the perfect way to start our night in LA! 

The whole hotel was stunning and with gorgeous attention to detail in each room - definitely our new go-to hotel when in LA.

CELEBRATING SUMMER WITH GOOD FRIENDS //

Sunday, 3 September 2017

















Last weekend Danny and I got together with some of our favorite people to have a good old fashioned barbecue and watch the fights (let's be honest the fight was just background noise while I caught up with my girlfriends). Lately Danny and I have been talking a lot about how important it is that we both make time to see our friends. With life being as crazy as it is, we can sometimes put our friends on the back burner, and that's 1. not cool, and 2. not healthy. It's super important for both of us to have balance both within our own lives and our marriage. We talked about making our friends more of a priority and making time to see and connect with them. When our good friends asked us to come over for a BBQ we obviously cleared our schedules! What better way to reconnect with friends than over some cold bevs. I'm always torn with what to bring to a get together but thought Smirnoff Ice would be an easy crowd pleaser. Especially the NEW Smirnoff Ice Party Packs - four flavours and in cans to make for the perfect ready to drink bev for long weekend BBQs and lawn games.

We spent the day playing croquet until the sun went down then moved the party inside to watch some of the pre-matches and of course the main event. We ended up staying there until 2AM listening to throwback tunes and dancing the night away. All of our friends rolled in as the night went on - so much fun. We haven't all hung out in so long so it was awesome to see everyone. We of course woke up super tired and poor Danny had to work the next day but it was worth it - now we have the memories of spending the fight of the century with our favourite people.
