clearly contacts giveaway




Bring on the hipster glasses. After moving to Gastown in Vancouver, I am now allowed to rock these daily, guilt-free. Perfect for dressing up or down, the subtle cat-eye on these frames from ClearlyContacts.ca is perfect for us with smaller, rounder faces  and hello tortoise + pink! Lately I've been wearing them while lounging at home in a cozy sweater and the softest b.up pajamas from Pjzzzz

I love fashion with a cause, and I especially love the way ClearlyContacts.ca gives back with their one-for-one business model. For every Evergreen frame sold, a seed is sent to a tree nursery in a developing country where agroforestry workshops provide local farmers with the education they need to cultivate their own land. Designed with a vintage-chic vibe (and how great are the brightly coloured frames?) I love that the Evergreen collection is both fashion-forward and eco-friendly.

I'm so excited that ClearlyContacts.ca is offering one of my readers a free pair of their own frames from the Evergreen line! Enter below for your chance to win. Good luck and happy Monday! xo

blush blouse



During my move to Vancouver this month, I went through my entire closet and purged. It felt really great to only keep what I loved and donate the rest. At the same time, I was also able to 'shop my own closet' and find pieces that I'd completely forgotten about (or thought looked terrible on me, but actually suit my style now). So when I discovered this blouse tucked away from a few years ago, I knew I had to style it again for Spring. This light blush colour is one of my favourites, and I love the simple collar embellishment. So much so, that I opted out of wearing any jewellery at all (a first)! So don't be afraid, take a look at some of your closet items from past seasons and re-style them for Spring. I dare you. Happy Tuesday! xo

new perspectives

I've been living in the heart of Vancouver for a week now, and I've already opened my eyes to the incredible possibilities that the city has to offer. Between simple walks to my favourite coffee shops, having brunch with creative minds, and going through ridiculous antics and long life-conversations with my roommate, I feel as though I have a new perspective on where I'm headed. Things recently have been thrown a little off balance, but I'm seeing it as a way to build strength and determination to get to where I want to be.

Speaking of new perspectives, I recently worked with PRSPECTV by Pierce, an up-and-coming photographer in Vancouver with a seriously cool vibe and amazing talent behind the lens. I put together this outfit to reflect my style recently, pieces that I feel great in and can take me from day-to-night (also recreating this look from Instagram). We went with a balance of hard and soft, shooting in Gastown, and I love how the photos turned out. Check out his work and have an amazing weekend everyone. xo
