This season, I’m embracing bright, colourful pieces, experimenting with volume and adding some life into old closet favourites with new accessories. The inspiration for this outfit were the little crocus flowers peeking out of the ground a couple weeks ago. I wore this purple midi skirt outfit to church on Easter weekend and then on a date to visit Allan Gardens to see the spring bulbs!

I’m wearing a yellow scalloped top from H&M (old, similar here), a purple midi skirt c/o Chicwish, watercolour Maddox sandals by Nicole Miller Artelier c/o DSW Canada, and a Kate Spade bag.

These watercolour sandals from DSW Canada are perfect for summer. I love the graphic watercolour/graffiti print, it’s definitely edgy and completely different. What I really love about these heels are the fun leather tassles. Tassles and pom poms are a trendy detail, so keep your eye out while you’re shopping. I think these heels will also go well with a pair of skinny jeans and a white tee, or to jazz up a plain white dress this summer. The warm weather has me excited for more fun summer fashion to come!

My first designer handbag was from Coach… I remember going to the Eaton Centre and purchasing it, with my first month’s worth of paycheques from my part time job. I’ve cherished it since, and picked up a few more Coach pieces along the way. I’ve always been a huge fan of their leather pieces, so I absolutely couldn’t say no to making a Coach Rogue bag review.

I’m wearing an olive Coach Rogue Bag, a striped lantern sleeve shirt from SheIn, embellished boyfriend jeans from H&M, and scalloped Finnley heels from Nine West.

I love how this outfit has modern elements, with vintage touches. The ripped jeans keep the puffy-sleeved shirt from looking too “Anne of Green Gables” while the scalloped heels add a girly touch to the look. I love how this outfit juxtaposes masculine elements (the jeans and the bag) with feminine style.

The Coach Rogue bag, from the Coach 1941 line, comes in dozens of colours. Embellished with flowers, snakeskin, fringed, grommeted… the Coach Rogue has already taken many forms. I’m wearing the black copper and olive Coach Rogue in Glovetanned Pebble leather, in the regular size. I find that it’s perfect for storing essentials, including my DSLR, wallet, water bottle, notebook, an iPad/e-reader and a mini umbrella. I also love that it has a few compartments and a convenient, built-in change purse with a vintage clasp. The feet on the bottom, piping and leather-covered metal handles add structure and function to the bag.… View Full Post

Yesterday, I had my last law school lecture. It’s crazy that law school is coming to an end, and it has been an incredibly challenging but rewarding time. I’ve forged many relationships with my peers and mentors, that have pushed me to be curious, hard-working and kind. Just yesterday, I learned about a new legal area – artificial intelligence in the employment law context, and one of my peers told me all about Electronic fibre computers and their military applications. Law school is a really cool place. It’s easy to get swept up in all the readings, assignments and 100% exams, but for the most part, I’ll remember inspiring guest lectures, cross-examining witnesses, making closing statements in a real courtroom and talking about nerdy things at my CIPPIC clinic placement. I am so excited to be done, but it’s all starting to get a little bittersweet.

I’m moving back to Toronto on April 30, and packing away this segment of my life. My law school journey started with me researching employment law when I found myself in a shady post-journalism-graduate internship. I then studied for the LSAT for a year (and took it three times!), applied to several law schools and agonized over the wait. I applied to Interior Design School, and as I was about to pay my application fee, I got the call from Ottawa U in early summer 2014 and jumped! I went to J. Crew that day and bought two blazers… I’ve since tripled my collection.… View Full Post

Over the past couple years, I’ve become obsessed with sneakers! I have a few pairs from Adidas, but have been debating between getting a pair of Stan Smiths vs Superstars. I’ve found the PERFECT balance between each iconic sneaker – keep reading for my Adidas Neo Advantage Review.

I’m wearing a striped breton top, jeans from Zara (similar ripped jeans here), a waterfall trench coat, a Mackage mini Rubie bag and Adidas sneakers c/o DSW Canada.

These sneakers feature white leather, perforated details (like the Stan Smiths) and adorable rose gold stripes on the outside, like the Superstar. I love how these are streamlined like the Stan Smith sneakers, but feature the iconic three stripes. And rose gold to boot! This pair is also a steal from DSW Canada! Seriously, don’t miss out on this pair! They are practically half the price of a pair of Stan Smith sneakers, and come in rose gold. Need I say more?… View Full Post
