Fly Me to the Tropics (Stat!)

lipstick readyTravelling over the holidays? Me too!! In preparation for my trip to the tropics, I handily saved all my travel essentials to my StyleSpotter App for iPad. Being a very visual person, this was the perfect way for me to visually see what I needed to pack  & be able to check everything off my list. If you haven’t had a chance to take a peek at the StyleSpotter App, download yours from the App store today! You won’t regret it (I must admit, it’s very addicting) I’m happy to say that StyleSpotter has been ranked in the Top 100 Lifestyle Apps on iTunes!

If you’re not familiar yet, StyleSpotter is the easiest way to share & shop the latest trends, all at the touch of your iPad. Browse, compare & bookmark all your favorites to your profile from their database of a half million items. And while your at it, connect with friends to see what they’re shopping for! (shop my faves at ‘The Working Girl’). Another bonus? automatically get exclusive coupons & alerts when your ‘saved’ items drop in price from any online retailer. Happy (shopping) Holidays!!

Black on Black

In a world filled with choices sometimes it’s just best to stick with simple sophistication – Black on Black that is. I love to start with a neutral palette + add in splashes of color for balance; during the winter month’s a deep red laquer or lipstain.

Welcome Fall with Old Navy

With the closing of Summer comes the excitement of Fall + the endless possibilities our wardrobes have to offer. It has been years since I’ve had the urge to stop into Old Navy – however, this season is entirely different! This Fall Old Navy has released a wonderfully girlie collection of trendy meets cute womenswear; the perfect mix of working-girl + weekend layering. From printed + patterned denim, polka dots, stripes + comfy sweatshirts, Old Navy really thought about everything trending right now + delivered in a tastefully chic way. While sorting through the Fall 2013 lookbook, I quickly realize I had a real problem on my hands…. I want ALL of the pieces I’ve shared below – see for yourself!

Burberry Hearts #LFW

If you’ve been following along from home, you may have caught Burberry’s Prorsum Spring/Summer 2014 Presentation at London Fashion Week – and I must say, they’ve stolen my heart this season! Hearts, animal prints + classic stripes stole the show at Monday’s Burberry runway lineup – everything from the perfect pencils skirt to chic office staples to my favorite Burberry trench. I was having a hard time deciding which were my favorite pieces!! Everything in this collection is pretty, sophisticated + functional – a well-rounded assortment for the modern-day working girl! Well done Burberry, you nailed it once again!

PARTYSKIRTS + Shopbop = Amazing!

If by some sort of twisted mishap you missed the (BIG) news … my favorite PARTYSKIRTS are now available on shopbop! I couldn’t be more proud + inspired by the two little ladies behind the brand. Local to Vancouver + obvious dreamers at heart, these girls are taking things to a new level. Talk about a success story – I want one in every color!

From Head-to-Toe

How much are we loving this look!? Whether for a day full of meetings or a night out to dinner, this look holds up the simple sophistication of ‘busy business-woman’ on top with a twist of casual fun down below. Simple, yet sophisticated is always the way to go when you’re faced with a hectic day – I know I’m always looking for something that will take me from morning to-night without having to pack a stash of extra options along with me. Thank you to refinedstylefashion.com for posting this look!

Warby Parker New Collection: Ocean Avenue

warby-parker-ocean-avenue-2

I’m a big fan of Warby Parker Eyewear, so I was tickled pink when they asked me to help introduce the launch of their newest collection: Ocean Avenue! Besides offering a range of cleverly designed vintage-inspired frames, the reason I love this brand so much is because they are a socially conscious business. For every pair of glasses purchased, another pair is given to someone in need – how amazing is that!? Let’s get ready for summer + help out someone in need by heading over to the Warby Parker website for a closer peek at all the greatness they have to offer! I’ve also shared some of my favorites from the collection, paired with some summer essentials – which ones are your favorite?!
