I really love my leather jacket.  I’ve had this classic black leather Michael Kors jacket for a few years now.  I wear it almost year round, with the exception of our short hot weather season.   Whether it’s with colour, jeans, over a dress, or my paired with my go-to uniform, it just works.  I also clearly really love scarves.  I have quite a few in my collection and clearly an outfit of mine isn’t complete without one!

Do you have any favourite staples in your closet?

I have written before that one of the simplest ways to get ready quickly in the morning and feel fabulous when you leave the house is to create a uniform.  By uniform I mean a go to look you know you feel good in that you can style different ways to wear for many different occasions.

A version of this look would be my go to outfit when I’m in a pinch or don’t really want to think too much about what to wear.  As a Momma, I don’t have a lot of time to get ready but still want to look cute while being comfortable.  My winter uniform entails… a shorter cotton/lycra skirt, an oversized top, blouse, or sweater, heavy tights, ankle boots, scarf, and a couple well appointed accessories.  This version of my go to look is perfect for lunches with friends, shopping with my Little Miss, or family brunch and weekend outings.

Stay tuned for two more looks of my uniform that I’ll be sharing over the next couple weeks.

It’s always challenging to shed my daily wardrobe of pj’s and cozies after the holidays and get back to actual clothes.  I refuse to be uncomfortable so I’ve been gravitating to my collection of knit dresses in my closet.  This one you’ve seen before and is an absolute favorite.  I wear this dress for everything from lunch and coffee dates, to running errands, to dinner parties.  I must do another Nicole Bridger shop soon!

Grey days...

January mood

With Vancouver currently covered in a thick blanket of fog, I have found myself dressing to match the weather …literally.  Grey has been one of my go to colours for years.  It’s a great casual basic.  Now that I’m working on getting refocused on work as well as home and life organization after the holidays, I’m spending more time at home and in my office.  My go to items of the moment  seem to be fitted jersey skirts layered with tights, comfortable foot wear, cozy knits, and blanket scarves.  Even as I’m writing this I’m wearing grey knit pants, a black and grey striped tee, and long grey cardi.

January always feels like such a sleepy month.  I’ve been trying to take advantage of this bit of extra time to set goals, catch up with some friends, exercise,  and begin new projects.  Happy New Year All!

New Years Eve used to be about me shopping for a new fabulous outfit, getting all dressed up, and breaking in a new pair of heels until the wee hours of the New Year.  Soooo, life has changed a little.  This year I’m shopping my own wardrobe, finding something cute but comfortable, and I’ll be sipping champagne with my loves until…well, until we get tired and decide it’s time to go to bed.  {You can always celebrate Eastern time.}

We have no idea what exactly we’ll be doing tonight, but we know it will be low key and as a family.  This look I styled with items from my wardrobe.  I  kept comfort the priority and then added touches of shine and glamour.  Tonight’s look might be an even more casual approach, but I’m ok with that; as long as there is bubbly.

Happy New Year!
