mommy and me: christmas ootd

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetLast year, I compiled a Christmas outfit list that I desperately wanted to buy and wear. This year, I put together an actual outfit that I will be wearing. 

This OOTD is both practical and coordinated with my littlest. My dress was purchased from Choies. While light grey definitely doesn’t hide any flaws, I just adore the colour.

Remy’s cute onesie was actually purchased from the grocery store. It has a wonderful sparkle to it that makes it look dressier than a regular onesie. Her thick tights are from The Children’s Place.

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetI don’t always match my daughter like this. However, it’s Christmas, and if ugly sweaters are fashionable, then so are matching outfits. At least in my world.

See you next week!

matching green dresses

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetHave any of you ever seen The Money Pit? It has always been one of my favourite movies. Little did I know that I would one day be living it out.

Our new home so far has had its share of issues. Remember the scene in the film where Tom Hanks and Shelley Long had to boil water in order to take a bath? We did that for a week. Or when Hanks rings the doorbell and gets shocked, so he starts knocking on the door and it falls in? I got locked out one afternoon when I tried unlocking the door and my key got stuck in the lock and is now permanently bent. Or when they had to pack up the house and move out in order for it to get exterminated? Oh wait, that was us.

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetLast week was a complete nightmare. We ended up having to move back to the acreage while our own money pit was getting sprayed. While we were staying there, I wanted to make the most of it. I slowly began to feel more like myself. The weather was gorgeous, and the dogs were able to roam freely, and my little sidekick of a daughter adjusted exceptionally well. So on one particular day, I put on our new green dresses, and Remy and I had a photo shoot.

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetThank goodness for my family. If it wasn’t for them, I don’t know where we would’ve gone with all of our things, a baby, two dogs, and a cat. We will turn this money pit around, slowly, but surely.

wears : winners

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetOh, glorious, glorious summer. You have been especially kind to us on the prairies this year. We have been given blazing hot days since the end of April. With each passing month, my shorts have become shorter, and my tops lighter. 

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetDo any of you have the store Winners where you live? It has amazing name brand clothing offered at great discounted price. In fact, my cool summer outfit was purchased from there. Of course, I mean cool as in airy and chic! You can never go wrong with a store like that. :-)))

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetI hope that everyone is enjoying their summer so far. Happy, happy Monday.

buy these : baby booties (babybbasic)

Remy Crocheted Booties - 1One item that we did not purchase before Remy was born was any type of footwear. I had asked my sister if she ever put her babies in shoes, and she replied that she did not. In fact, she said to just buy a ton of sleepers for them. That way, their feet would always be covered. So we did. 

Remy Booties - 1In hindsight, I would have done things differently. My husband and I quickly grew to detest sleepers. We found that the sheer number of buttons, as well as the fact that our tiny baby had to become more than half naked in order to change one diaper was just too much. Instead, we opted for onesies, pants, and socks. It was much less of a hassle, in our opinion! Plus, I enjoyed creating her outfits. ;-)

Remy Booties - 5.1Now that we are in the summer months, Remy is foregoing pants and socks. This means that I have nothing to put on her feet! Worried that they may get cold, I was in desperate need of footwear. So, I searched Instagram and Etsy, and much to my surprise I came across the cutest Canadian store. It is called babyBbasic

The store offers a great selection of booties. I chose navy blue for Remy. Because they are made of cotton, her feet shouldn’t overheat on a warm day.

Everything about the booties is too cute! I especially love the leather ties and tags. They are also stretchy enough so that she will have quite a few months to wear them. Score!

Remy Booties - 6.1My next purchase from the shop is going to be a bonnet. Now that Remy is teething, I am needing a bib for her as well. Oh the things I wish I knew before I had her!

Happy Monday, everyone!

3 best warm weather dresses

off%20the%20shoulderWhen things start to warm up outside, you want your wardrobe to follow suit. This year, there are a few different dresses that you need to add to your closet that will keep you feeling cool while looking fabulously fashionable.

Take a look at these top dress styles for the the coming season.

The Off-the-Shoulder Dress
Off-the-shoulder dresses have come back in a big way this season. They’re a trendy way to show off a bit of skin in a way that won’t leave you feeling overexposed. According to My Fashion Life, Kate Beckinsale perfectly demonstrated the trend at the New York premiere of her latest movie, Love and Friendship.

“Shoulders are having a major fashion moment,” My Fashion Life wrote. Beckinsale rocked the trend “in a simple yet sophisticated off-shoulder navy mermaid dress by Vatanika teamed with fishnet Louboutin heels adding a touch of goth glam to the look with black nail polish.”

Follow her premiere style and you can’t lose.

shirt%20dress2The Shirt Dress
There’s two kinds of shirt dresses. The first looks like an oversized T-shirt, with its loose lines and comfy, relaxed feel. You can usually find them in everything from cotton blends, to a jersey knit fabric. They’re fairly casual, but they’re certainly cute enough to wear out for a day of shopping or a girls’ night in.

The other is a button-up variety that’s either fitted throughout the bodice or cinched with a belt to accentuate the wearer’s curves. They’re usually seen as a bit more formal, or at the very least, it’s more commonly seen in high fashion settings. The designers featured on Lyst range from top names like Michael Kors, Armani, and Versace, proving that these dresses are more than a cosy coverup. Feel free to wear one of these to work, meetings, or out on the town for date night.

slip%20dress5The Slip Dress
These slinky dresses used to be meant for under your clothes, but they’re quickly becoming a staple for outerwear among the fashion elite. A trend alert from Platform recommends a few different styles with varying details, but it also sets decent guidelines by suggesting pairing them with boots if it’s chilly or sandals for a dainty, feminine summer look.

Granted, the slip dress can be pretty revealing on its own. So if it doesn’t leave enough to the imagination for your liking, it’s a great piece to play with in a layered outfit. You can try it out under jackets or cardigans, as well as over a pair of leggings. It’s doesn’t have to be your main focus, but it can certainly help you create a fashion-forward outfit that you can’t achieve otherwise.

These dresses are summer and mommy approved. Find yours before it’s too late!
