One of the most memorable day trips this summer was to Terre Bleu Lavender Farm. About an hour north-west of Toronto, this gorgeous little farm had fields full of gorgeous lavender blooms. We went on… View Full Post
The hunt for a great pair of jeans is always exhausting. With so many styles, cuts and fits, it can be a bit overwhelming. But one brand, NYDJ promises to help you look one size smaller in jeans! A few weeks ago, I checked out the NYDJ pop-up event to get fitted for a pair of jeans. This season, the denim brand has teamed up with Dress for Success Toronto, and is donating $10 if you try on a pair of jeans. Women in the GTA can get this experience at the Toronto Women’s Show on November 10-12, 2017. The series will also roll out in offices across the greater city area.
I was really excited to check out the brand and participate, because I wanted to support the wonderful cause. I actually had a chance to chat with one woman who used the service, who had difficulties landing a job as a Diversity consultant after moving from India. She explained how working with Dress for Success involved so much respect, and that they found the perfect look to compliment her style and type of job interview. We chatted about how difficult it can be getting through the job interview process, and how the right clothes and confidence can help get a job. She’s since gone on to work with Ernst & Young and now works as an independent diversity consultant. It’s great to see a fashion brand team up with this initiative, so I’d definitely recommend trying on a pair!
I got set up with a fit consultant and tried on a few styles. I originally went for a pair of dark skinny jeans, but ended up falling in love with the boyfriend style. All the girls at the event wearing the boyfriend style raved about how comfy they are. I personally loved how they were casual, but were still clean and proper enough to wear to work on casual fridays. NYDJ is locally available at Hudson’s Bay and Nordstrom.

Last weekend, a few bloggers joined for a lovely Sunday brunch. We checked out a new spot on Harbord Street in Toronto, Café Cancan. The restaurant was colourful, and the food was equally lively! I’m sharing my Cafe Cancan Toronto Review in case you’re hoping to check it out!
I’m wearing a beaded shirt dress from Banana Republic, which I picked up in New York City, a pair of gold leather loafers from Winners (similar gold loafers here under $25!), and a purple Kate Spade New York bag.

span style=”font-weight: 400;”>Interview week for Toronto articling recruitment is coming up… and I wanted to share what to wear to an articling interview, specifically for the ladies in the summer. I’ve rounded up a few workwear ideas in this post, but wanted to share some corporate interview outfit ideas. While these suggestions are specifically geared to the legal field/Toronto recruitment, they will definitely work for other young women in corporate settings.
What to wear to an articling interview: The classic skirt suit
Ahh the skirt suit. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan. I find skirt suits to be a bit too formal and uncomfortable, especially if you have the same “skirt-twisting” problem as I do. However, an elegant, well-fitted skirt suit can be a confident choice for an articling interview.
I’m wearing a lightweight wool skirt suit from Theory. Specifically, I am wearing the Gabe Jacket in Edition Fabric. Theory is by far my favourite suit brand, and I find their cuts to be modern, classic and very timeless. This particular Edition suit was also made in USA, and I found it on discount at HR2 in Vaughan Mills. I really recommend visiting HR2 for great suit options!
The weekend is finally here. After a long week of work, meetings and events, I’m so looking forward to winding down with a good read by the lake. I’ve packed my Amazon Kindle Paperwhite and… View Full Post
