In the wake of Target announcing this week that they are discontinuing their Canadian operations, I thought I would post some photos of one of my favourite Target pieces, the Crane sweater from the Altuzarra for Target collection that debuted in September 2014. I love this sweater. It’s comfortable, and I feel so stylish when I wear it.
I’ve posted about the Target designer collaborations in the past. I was so excited that the Canadian Target stores brought the pieces in! I don’t live anywhere near the border, so it would be tough to drive to the American stores for the collections. This red suit from the Altuzarra collection is a favourite of mine.
As much as I love to support local Canadian businesses, and I try to whenever possible, I’ll miss the novelty of being able to access the collections!
I’ll going to miss the blogger collaborations as well. I’ve gotten some great home pieces from them. Hopefully there will be some good sales before the stores close for good. I know I’ll be one sad Canadian when they do!
It has been ages since I’ve posted anything, mostly because this is the only outfit I’ve been wearing lately! I’ve been forced into a hiatus by the weather.
With temperatures dropping as low as -29 degrees Celsius (-20 degrees Fahrenheit!) I’ve been waddling around with layers of tights and long underwear under my pants for days! Being a fashion blogger in the north isn’t easy.
My hat says it all, I hate winter.

I don’t normally have time to post during the week, but I wanted to do a quick shout-out to Edmonton jewelry designer BangBang Bijoux. I picked these earrings up from her most recent collection at Royal Bison this past weekend, and I think they are one of her best designs yet!
Looking forward to weekend two of Royal Bison!
There have been a lot of great events in Edmonton in the last few weeks. Here’s a photo recap of my two of my favourites.
PARK finally brought their famous event to Edmonton! Waiting for the show to start.

I wore a sequinned top by H&M, a Danier Leather skirt, and UNIF Hellraiser shoes.
As the days get shorter, and winter gets closer, my outfits are a hybrid of warm and cool weather pieces. Ankle jeans, wool blazer and flip flops, anything goes.
This J. Crew jeweled collar Regent Blazer has been a go-to piece for me the past few weeks because it’s warm enough to act as outerwear for now, and stylish enough for anything.
This was such a fun outfit to pull together. All the colours match!
Blazer, baseball cap and necklace from J. Crew, top from H&M, jeans by Adriano Goldschmied, bag by Longchamp, mirrored aviator sunglasses by Ray Bans.
Today is my birthday (my ACTUAL 29th) birthday, and I’m celebrating with the cutest little ensemble.
The dress is the Kate Spade Structured Silk Mini Dress. When I first saw it in the store, I fell in love with it, but I wasn’t sure someone as tall as I am (5’10) could pull it off. Fortunately I was wrong!
I paired it with the sweetest Kate Spade necklace. It’s like the two were meant to go together.
Who’s ready for a party???
Dress and necklace, Kate Spade, shoes are Fly London.
It’s been just over a month since the Altuzarra for Target collection hit store shelves, and I’ve really been loving a lot of the pieces, in particular, the red suit. I’ve worn this to a couple of events already, including Western Canada Fashion Week in Edmonton, and received a lot of compliments.
It’s hard not to feel fabulous when you’re wearing it.
The Target collection is a cheap and easy way to be on point with the trends. Celebs, including Elizabeth Olsen have been spotted in similar suits this season. (Photo from Tumblr.) So in my opinion, definitely worth picking up if it’s still in stock at your local Target.

Rocking another concert tee today. This one is from the Ryan Adams show at the Winspear Centre in Edmonton last week. It’s still warm enough to wear sandals, and I’m thrilled!
I love the style of this tee! I’m not hardcore enough to wear actual metal tees!
It’s cute with patterned pants too!
Sunglasses by Celine, jacket from J. Crew, necklace from Urban Outfitters, pants from Club Monaco, bag by Louis Vuitton, sandals by TKees.
Wearing a little civic pride with this cute little tank from Bamboo Ballroom in Edmonton. The Whyte Ave boutique has long been one of my favourite shop local destinations, and I love that they’re branching out with their own design.

I’m back after a hard drive malfunction that caused me to lose almost two months of blog posts! In that time, fall has arrived, which means it’s fall gain fashion time! Plaids and ankle boots are IN. This cute little top from H&M is under $30, and it’s so versatile!
I picked up this cute Betsey Johnson tulle covered toque (beanie to you Americans) at Simons and it’s perfect for covering my dark roots!
Fall doesn’t just mean new clothes, it means new colours for your nails too! Red is always a classic, and it’s nice to go a little darker when the weather gets colder. I’ve got Claudette by Julep on order, and I know I’ll be wearing it a lot once it gets here! (Bonus, it’s on sale right now too!) What are YOUR favourite nail colours for fall?
