Sweater Dress + Riding Boots

Every once in a while, I get reminded that even though my life is all weddings all the time (between working at a wedding mag and planning my own wedding later this year), this whole thing originated in 2009, with me as a second year Literature major, bored out of my skull in a small university town, deciding on a whim to join the blogging community, which was at the time was very different than it is today. When Vince Camuto approached me to collaborate on styling a pair of boots for their blog, I was honoured to be featured not just for my day job, but for this personal blog that has meant so much and brought so many wonderful opportunities over the past seven (!!!) years. You can head over to Vince Camuto's blog, The Crest, to read my full interview.
Over the next few months I'm excited to return to blogging on a semi-regular basis, and am so looking forward to reconnecting with all of my internet friends - I have so missed you all!

Black Top + Leopard Skirt

Winter has officially arrived. Snow is on the ground, I've traded my suede boots for Sorels, and I don't dare step outside without at least two layers on. It doesn't feel real that I was wearing Jimmy Choo loafers just a few weeks ago. You won't believe this, but these pictures were taken when it was technically "winter," though I can't remember a winter in my lifetime when I could get away with bare legs for brief periods of times.
Happy 2016, all. It's surreal that I can say that I'm getting married this year. Wedding planning is in full swing, with everything planned for early September. I've got the dress portion of things covered. Everything else? Well... that's what planners are for. And thank God for her.

All Navy Everything

The weather has been abnormally warm for December, but you won't hear me complaining. I've been on a skirt-buying binge this season and there are no signs of stopping. Right now, I'm particularly loving the resurgence of 60's mod cuts and 70's suede button up styles.

ShopVoc Friends

Recently, I spent the afternoon hanging out with my dear friend Dani in Liberty Village. The weather has been weirdly temperate for this time of year, requiring just a light jacket or none at all. I'm holding onto the ability to wear my Repetto's for as long as I can get away with it. We spent all day dressing up in all kinds of things and ended up settling on these ultra cozy things for the rainy day. You can get almost everything we're wearing at her newly rebranded store ShopVoc and get 25% off your entire order with the code "shopvoc25".

Fall Layers + Chloé Boots

It's officially autumn, and thank goodness for it. As much as I adore my summer uniform of day dresses and ballet flats, I'm ready to trade it in for ripped jeans, leather jackets and blanket scarves - I love this time of year. I spent Canadian Thanksgiving in New York City attending Bridal Fashion Week. My fiancé tagged along and we had a wonderful weekend staying at The Plaza Hotel. Despite the hectic schedule, I was able to squeeze in some shopping and a few dinners out (Minetta Tavern, Sushi of Gari and Bâtard were highlights). Now I'm home for a bit while the next issue of WedLuxe is in production, and I'm so excited for what the coming Fall months will bring.
For the next few posts, I've collaborated with ShopVOC to style some of their latest pieces for Fall. Head on over to their newly revamped online store to purchase everything I'm wearing, and use the code "shopvoc25" to get 25% off sitewide. Happy shopping!
