1) Konifer wood watch (c/o) : A very cool Canadian brand of watches all made of wood.  This oversized one is a beauty.
2) I Wear the Headdress head wraps:  Hot days mean keeping my hair up and back.
3) my Mansur Gavriel bucket bag + clutch : Nothing new, but love bring out some old faves after a while.
4) little gold rings
5) Fall fashion mags : Not really doing my usual Fall wardrobe planning.  With a big baby bump to dress, I’ll just be doing the best I can.
6) Racinne Ultimate Youth Power Eye Serum (c/o):  My new go-to to help battle my tired eyes.  It’s youth in a bottle.

 

This look is definitely a departure from my usual denim look I rock on most days.  I forgot how nice it is to slip on a dress.  I used to wear dresses almost everyday when I was working outside of the home.  I loved that I always felt comfortable but polished.  A dress is one thing to put on.  It is a quick and easy way to get dressed.  There is definitely still a chill in the air and layers are required.  On the days that have been a bit warmer, I have been swapping out my cardis for kimonos.  I got this beautiful one a couple years ago from Farminista.com.  I obviously love that they are based out of my home province of Saskatchewan.  This silk dress was an amazing find at the Nicole Bridger warehouse sale last month.  Even though this shade of green is typically a more Fall colour, the floral kimono freshens it up with a Spring vibe.  I really do need to dress up more.  With that said, I’m going to go through on a pair of jeans now.

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!

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!
