Prezzie Wezzie

Today I decided that I am going to quit my job and start a pantyhose business. What a lucrative industry that must be! For realz though, you spend $18 on a pair that suck you in just right and then one wear run run away. 

In other news, sometimes you just want to grab a quickie to go dress to go to worky that you can throw on without having to worry about ironing, and be comfy throughout the day. This dress is that. To top it off, it was a present from my seester for my birthday!

Today is the day I say goodbye to my youth, in mourning in my all black outfit. Apparently, mother nature is in mourning too with the return of this freezing cold! Just plain rude. So I didn't actually get a picture of the outfit..but here's an outfit from last week! Where the weather was springy and I was young and spry.

Around 5 years ago I wrote a list of things I wanted to accomplish before I turned 30. Well I've hit the half way point and I haven't done much! So now I will be entering ramp up mode. Beware world because one of things is getting a motorcycle licence. I'll alert everyone when that happens so they can stay off the roads..and their front lawns too. 

On a more positive note, thanks to my friends and co-workers for making me feel special on this day! (knowing that I'm just a little bitter..). I would hug you..but I hate you..just kidding..but seriously, don't touch me.

Spring Forward in Style

I know Spring hasn't fully arrived yet, in Halifax anyway, but a girl can dream right?? I just want to look like a pastel rainbow at a candy store with flowers in my hair. That's what spring is to me for some reason. 

Another bonus of spring forward is that my watches are all synchronized again! *one handed fist pump*

All items above are from Joe Fresh and with 'fresh' in the name, you really can't go wrong!

Style on a Dime

1. Blazer - Dynamite - $39.90 - here
2. Romper - Asos - $34.92 - here
3. Purse - Nine West - $75.00 - here
4. Sunglasses - Aldo - $12.00 - here
5. Sandals - DV by Dolce Vita - $79.00 - here

Look like Kourtney Kardashian for just a little over $200! If you're shopping on a budget, here's a style tip - spend a little more on items that you'll get more wear out of. In this example, the pricier items are the shoes and purse; however, you're more likely to wear shoes and purses with several outfits than with a romper.

So go on friends, go shop so you can look like the starlet that you're mommy always said you were.

Colour Blocking for the Timid

Depending on your occupation, it can sometimes be hard to bring your favourite trends into the office. Thank god ass-less chaps aren't trending right now, that might be a tough one to try to find a happy medium for. 

Colour blocking is a great one! It's not risque (unless you're colour blocking a bra top and a pencil skirt - come on ladies) AND it can be done in several intensities. For example, if you feel like a full on colour blocked outfit in bright hues is a bit much, then I present to you 'Colour Blocking 101 - For the timid'. 

Start with a solid coloured top and keep the rest of the outfit in a neutral shade. You can never go wrong with black in my case! Then add another bold colour on your footsies! This way, you're still partaking in the trend, yet you're a little more subtle about it.

How bold are you with your colour blocks?

Birthstone: Aquamarine

Remember when you were a kid and you just couldn't wait until your birthday? Countdowns would start months in advance and turning 10 felt like the coolest thing ever because you had finally hit the double digits. Well the start of March is the start of my birthday countdown; however, unlike the 9 year old me who couldn't wait for the big day, I am dreading it! 

2013 is the year I turn the big ol' 2 5. That's a whole other demographic checkbox on forms, people! Just imagine the exertion of having to move my hand 1 cm to check this new box. I mean, come on.
