I’ve been talking a lot about closet cleaning and organization lately.  That is because it had been such a focus for me and my own personal style evolution.  Editing my wardrobe has been therapeutic for me.  I have been finding getting dressed a whole lot easier when I know I love the items hanging in my closet.  Getting ready in the morning has to be as effortless as possible.  When I’m going through my closet and selecting the items that will stay, I like to think of the ways items can be worn together for a fresh feel.  I also have a great mix of national brands, Canadian brands, and items from local shops.

This collection of goodies are perfect for a casual boho feel.  This pair of Old Navy jeans are at the top of my must wear pile.  I kind of live in them. (See them styled here last Spring with a fab thrift shop find.)   This amazing Brave Leather fringe tote is right on trend with its perfectly pink hue. (See it styled here from last year.)  These cute little boots from Plenty were an awesome sale purchase last year and will be great to transition me into the warmer weather…that is bound to show up any day now.   My pretty jewels have been taking a backseat these days. Babies and jewelry don’t mix, unless of course you are wearing some fab teething pieces.  This lovely necklace is from Mama Gems.  She will have the shop closed for a bit to have a baby, however I also love these local Vancouver shops,  Glitter & Spice and LouLouLollipop.

I’ve been so inspired by all the closet purging I’ve been doing that it is going to be a focus throughout my whole home.  This years goal…get rid of all the extra!

Weekend Uniform Checklist

1. Jeans: I just bought a great pair of comfortable skinny faded black jeans, similar to these J Brand ones.  I found mine at Winners for only $30!

2. Aviators: My mirrored Ray Ban sunnies my sister gave me are a year round favourite.  They make me feel like the cool mom at the playground;)

3. T-shirts…everyone needs like a million. This one is from Uniqlo.  A cool shop one of my besties told me to shop at when I went to San Fransisco in June.  I stocked up!

4. Cozy Socks: These Stance socks are uber cozy.  I recently got to preview the new collection at the Dela Cruz PR Holiday Preview.  I scored a cute new striped pair!

5. Hats are a great go to for those days when washing your hair seems like an enormous task.  I have a grey TopShop cap just like this Club Monaco one.  Fave go to for a few years now.

6. Weekender Bag: How cool are these duffel bags by FJALLRAVEN?  This was another cool line I got to check out at the holiday preview event. Great colour!!!

7.  Large bag: I have a little collection of Co-Lab by Christopher Kon bags.  They are cheap and cheerful and perfect to throw your whole life in before you head out the door.

8. Water bottle: When my husband and I were up in Whistler, we picked up a Swell water bottle.  This thing is awesome!  It keeps liquids hot for up to 12 hours and cold for 24 hours.  Awesome gift for Momma’s.  You can keep water at the temp you need if you use powder formula; but also good for coffee, water, tea, or anything else you want to take on the go.

9. Utility jacket: LOVE the Maison Scotch label.  This jacket is similar to my old Inwear standby that I have had for a gagillion years.  It might be time for an upgrade this year.

10.  Scarf season is just around the corner.  I try to limit myself with how many I buy each season, but I may have already picked up a new Artitzia blanket scarf.  Forever 21 has some awesome cheep and cheerful options though.

11. Watch: Another cute Forever 21 find…might have to pick this one up so I’m not wearing my Michael Kors one during outside play sessions with the Little Miss.

12.  Casual boots: These boots soooooo remind me of high school!   I love that the classic Dr. Marten boot, I rocked in the 90′s, is completely current all over again.  I’m on the hunt for a new comfortable, flat ankle boot.  These might do the trick!
