The season of Christmas parties and potlucks has started, and I’m ready with my new favourite Christmas outfit. The skirt is glittery, and pairing it with a red and green flannel makes it practical (warmth wise) too!
Adding a couple of glitzy necklaces really dresses up the flannel! (Inspired by my Crew colleague Kristina.)
I’ve been rocking the J. Crew Goodwinn Purse lately. It’s surprisingly versatile for such a small bag.
Floral brocade pencil skirt, plaid shirt, Goodwinn bag, pearl necklace and crystal Venus flytrap necklace from J. Crew, sunglasses by Marc by Marc Jacobs, rings are vintage, bracelet by In God We Trust NYC, tights by Joe Fresh, and Hellraisers shoes by Unif.
Not strictly fashion related, but yesterday my beloved Puggles, Fawn and Dubh celebrated their fifth birthday! They are sisters, born in the same litter.
As usual, Fawn was a perfect angel, and posed nicely for her birthday photos.
Dubh was not so co-operative.
The girls have been known to make the original foray into fashion. Here they are wearing their Edmonton Oilers and Saskatchewan Roughriders shirts.

I can’t believe I’m wearing light coloured denim from head to toe, but what can I say, I’m loving it!
In keeping with my two of my favourite trend this year, my top is covered in jewels! And I’ve added a leopard print belt to break up the denim.
Since I’m already doing jewels on the shirt, I went with a silver choker instead of a large statement necklace for a simple effect.
Top is the J. Crew boy shirt in beaded chambray, bag is the J. Crew Goodwinn purse, belt is from Target, sunglasses are Marc by Marc Jacobs, moccasins by Minnetonka, Return to Tiffany choker by Tiffany & Co.
There is no denying that winter has arrived in Edmonton, and no one is sadder about than I am. So I’m staying warm today with another jewelled sweatshirt and a fur scarf.
The scarf is from the closet of my stylish friend Jeannine, sweatshirt from J. Crew, maxi from Loft 82 in Edmonton, and boots by Sam Edelman.
I find in the winter, it can be really easy to slip into a rut of wearing greys and blacks, so I’ll have to watch out for that myself! This is my second post of black and grey in a row.
Accessories are always the finishing touch for any outfit, so along with Jeannine’s scarf, I’m wearing a La Mer wrap watch, vintage rings, and my “Return to Tiffany” heart shaped earrings. Cozy and chic!
If anyone had told me a year ago that I’d be all about sweatshirts this winter, I would have thought they were crazy. I just can’t get enough of the painted jewel sweatshirt by J. Crew though! This is at least the third post I’ve made about it.
I’ve paired it with the Talula Exeter Blazer, which is a piece that I really like because Aritzia sells it in a short and a long length, which is great for ladies of all different heights.
Another piece that I can’t get enough of is the J. Crew crystal chevron-link necklace, which I have been wearing with everything!
Tights are by Joe Fresh, bag is Marc by Marc Jacobs.
I have no guilt admitting that I’m a huge Pokémon fan, and while I’m not usually a fan of graphic tshirts, it’s such a comfy option….
And if I’m going to wear a bright orange tshirt, I may as well match it with my orange, Louis Vuitton Neverfull Graffiti, right?
The J. Crew Grande Crystal Drops Statement Necklace is a perfect finishing touch.
Long cardigan from Loft 82 in Edmonton, sunglasses by Ray Bans, bracelet Marc by Marc Jacobs, pixie pants from J. Crew, boots by Sam Edelman.
It’s no secret that I love J. Crew. The clothes are great, and when they go on sale the deals are amazing. And it turns out I’m not the only one. A few months ago, I made a post about Lena Dunham filming Girls in the same J. Crew blouse I’d blogged about a few days earlier. Since then I’ve seen a lot of J. Crew pieces pop up in TV shows, so this is my “celebrity style” post.
Rashida Jones in Parks & Recreation and Michelle Obama both sporting the J. Crew Field Jacket.
Amy Poehler wearing the J. Crew Excursion Vest in Parks & Recreation.
Amy Poehler wearing the French Hen blouse in Parks & Recreation.
And my favourite of all, Carrie Brownstein wearing the J. Crew Heart Throb Boy Shirt!
Do you ever find yourself saying “I have that!” when you’re watching tv?
Posting a couple of outfits from the past weeks before the snow fell! This is a simple outfit that effectively uses patterns and accessories with a lovely result!
The J. Crew grande crystal drops looks pretty extravagant, but it works well over a simple top. Love the colour of this sweater for fall.
The sweater is the Baton Bailey sweater from Aritzia.
The ribbon detail on the back is lovely!
The geometric print toothpick jeans from J. Crew are the final touch.
Sunglasses are Missoni, bangle is from In God We Trust NYC, ballet flats by Bloch, bag is the Alexander Wang Rocco tote.
The cool weather has returned to the Edmonton region, and that means I’m breaking out my wool Fridget Apparel cardigan for the season! This is one of my very favourite pieces, and was made by a local Edmonton designer Bridget Smatlan.
Close up of the fantastic detailing on the shoulders.
I paired it with a black leather skirt, and the J. Crew crystal chevron-link necklace and jewelled sateen shell. Perfect for a chilly day.
My sister is a huge fan (ba-dum-cha!) of vintage style clothing, so in honour of her birthday today, I’m showing off the Bettie Page Fanny Skirt. Now Niamh would tell you that a skirt like this absolutely MUST be worn with a crinoline, but I say rules are for breaking. Crinolines are itchy, and too dressy for work!
Tucked into the skirt, is my J. Crew Tilda Rhinestone top, which is the perfect vacs for every outfit. I absolutely love this piece. I got mine at the J. Crew retail store in the spring, but the Factory store has one out right now if you missed out!
Adding to the vintage theme is my crests of Canada charm bracelet, which came from the antique mall here in Edmonton.
Not sure where the cardigan or belt are from, they’ve been in my closet a long time. Bettie Page skirt from Rowena in Edmonton, J. Crew blouse, Joe Fresh tights (the best tights you can get for $6!), vintage, Tiffany and Marc by Marc Jacobs bracelets and Balenciaga bag.
