Totally Random Friday – May 16th

I am sitting and waiting for my turn for laser eye surgery so just a quick TRF for you today. I’ll be back next week! Have a great long weekend!

OPIcoke

OPI and Coca-Cola have put together a collaboration. I don’t see any dates for release on the website and none of the nail blogs I read have done a swatch post. Let me know if you see anything about it.

Club Monaco has done a capsule collection with cupcakes and cashmere (written by Emily Schuman and includes posts on fashion, food, home decor, beauty plus more). There is a leather skirt, a gorgeous trench and even a pair of shoes, but my fav has to be these two dresses:

Spring showers bring spring flowers

Hey party people! I hope it’s thawing and warming up out there for all of you. The weather is getting nicer around here and all that awful white stuff is slowly slipping away down the drains. And you know what that means – Florals! I am a huge fan of this pattern genre and I am looking forward to incorporating them into my outfit each and every day.

Here’s some of my favs.

This dress from Club Monaco has an unexpected cutout in the back making it appear as two pieces. Interesting!

What are your favourite floral pieces? Are you already wearing them or keeping them for warmer temps? Happy Shopping!

Trend: Pointed toe ballet flats

Sorry I haven’t posted for 12 days. I had this post all set up and ready to go before my trip to Toronto last week and between packing and the long weekend, I just forgot to press go. And then I had good intentions of posting while I was in Toronto but that didn’t happen either.

So, I am back and had a great time, especially checking out all the new trends coming down the pipe for spring. I’ll be sure to post what I bought soon.

Today I wanted to talk about a huge trend that is starting to pop up everywhere: the pointed toe ballet flat. It’s so cute, I think know I want several pairs.

I love the Material Girl line at Hudson’s Bay. Here she does a cute geometric tribal print.

SEshoes

I am a total sucker for Sam and usually pick up a pair of his sandals every summer. Hopefully this gorgeous shoe will come in some colours.

Club Monaco just started doing shoes in the past couple of years and while I haven’t been in love with any yet, these white ones are definitely in the right direction for me.

VCflats

I love this yellow pair from Vince Camuto, also available at Hudson’s Bay.

Which pair(s) do you like? Or is there a completely different pair that you have your eye on? Leave me a comment. Happy Shopping!

Valentine’s Day sweet treats

I’ve never been big on Valentine’s Day. Flowers are overpriced, chocolates give me hives and the restaurants all are crowded. If it were up to me, the custom would be to send your lover shoes or a great purse.

But since it’s not up to me, here are some sweet treats for you (and I) to drool over on this lovely Hallmark-made-up holiday. Feel free to send this list to your honey so they know what you really want. 😉

I am crazy over these silver ballet flats from Joe. They will be perfect for work, shopping and date nights walking down Corydon.

OOTB cardigan

This darling cardigan lends itself to spring but will keep you toasty warm while the temperatures slowly climb to above zero. Available at Out of the Blue

This cute dress from Artizia also comes in a gorgeous red colour, perfect for Valentine’s Day.

CMleatherlacedress

Rejoice leather lovers, leather continues to be hot this season. But bargain hunters need not apply: this gorgeous white leather laser cutout dress from Club Monaco will set you back $995.

I picked up a bib necklace from Paramix last week and caught myself wanting more than one including this Peter Pan collar and floral choker. Check out her great selection on Facebook or Instagram.
