Love for Lace







I managed to fit in one itsy bitsy photo shoot while I was on vacation in Buzios. We are mid-April in Canada and sadly, we are about three months shy from any type of condition that would allow me to strut around in this type of attire. Take me back to Brazil!

Thanks for following and happy shopping!

Winter to Spring Sequins





It's that transition period where the snow has melted, the trees are bare, the grass is brown and there is mud/slush everywhere. Yes, not the most romantic scenery that you can imagine but alas, it's the reality of early April. Here are two outfits that are meant to bring a little sparkle to the dreary climate conditions if you so happen to be experiencing Spring like I am.

Thanks for following and happy shopping!

Winter Look: Jacket: UniQueen - $93, Top: Vintage - $65, Earrings: Stella & Dot - $40, Clutch: BCBG - $20, Ring: Swatch - Gift available here, Sunglasses: Presence - $16.

Spring Look: Cardigan: Zara - $40, Wallet: Kate Spade - $70, Sweater: Gap - $5, Ring: Swatch - Gift available here, Sunglasses: Presence - $16, Necklace: Zara - $25, H&M - $16.

Canadian Lumberjack









I am so excited to share these photos taken by my friend, Jennifer Barr, who is equally talented as she is beautiful. This is the second time she has photographed me for this blog (see Hawaiian Warrior). 

It's hard to believe that our reunion post high school was only a year ago! I always love hanging out with Jen because every time I see her, I feel inspired to wake up before sunrise, exercise everyday, be super productive and eat healthy ALL the time (only one of us is successful at accomplishing these tasks…hint: it's not me. Curse my lack of will power and my reality t.v. and junk food dependency). Other than those minor differences, we have a shared love of food, fashion, Starbucks, photography, vacationing and all things pretty and sparkly! When you find someone with this many shared interests and teaches you so much (about books, music, life and how to create a killer itinerary *cough cough* NYC), you latch on to them for dear life and never let them go! 

We will be spending a lot of time together this summer so hopefully you will see more of her work soon, but for now, you can check out her keen eye, amazing taste and killer photography skills on her instagram account @jlcbarr
