This Halloween, I went as Carmen Sandiego. As a young girl, there were so few shows that featured female leads kicking butt, and that’s likely why I loved Sailor Moon, Power Rangers and Carmen Sandiego so much. I’m jealous of girls growing up with Moana today! Anyways my Carmen Sandiego Halloween costume was easy to create, and wearable for daily life too!

I had a bit of difficulty finding a red trench coat, but luckily, Amazon had the perfect red trench coat for under $75. I already had a red hat, but this felt fedora would be an even better match. For my yellow scarf, I picked it up at Obsessions Fashion in the PATH, but this yellow scarf is a similar option.

Daniel dressed up as Inspector Gadget! In my mind, I like to think Carmen Sandiego ran off with the goofy, loveable Inspector Gadget.… View Full Post

One of my favourite memories from my trip to NYC this Spring was spending the day in SoHo. The weather was gorgeous, and we had so much fun exploring the shops, sights and eats.

For our visit to SoHo in New York, I am wearing a blue Zara dress with bell sleeves (similar dress under $15 here), Adidas Neo Advantage sneakers (I raved about them here), and a Mackage mini Rubie bag.

I had an Elle Woods moment this weekend. I can’t believe it, but I’m the proud owner of a hot pink suit. This gorgeous set is c/o Talbots and it combines a bright shade of magenta with a clean, modern cut.

This Talbots blazer is part of their 70th Anniversary Collection. The brand pulled 7 different pieces from 7 different decades of modern, classic style. For the 1980s, they brought back the power suit in an eye-catching colour in the Exclusive Anniversary Collection Blazer. The 1980s power suit was iconic, and I love how this one reimagines the silhouette with a more relaxed silhouette. Coloured suits were definitely more popular back then, and I love how this one is unapologetically bold. I’m obsessed with the thick fabric and gold button details. It’s so preppy and lovely.

I paired the Anniversary Collection blazer with the Hampshire Ankle Pants to create my hot pink suit. I love these pants with their straight cut and modern cropped length. I’d love to wear both pieces separately too, to create ample looks for the office and nights out. I pulled the look together with my Gucci Marmont belt for a touch of glam, that also complimented the blazer’s gold buttons.
