neutral whites

As a fashion blogger, I suffer from outfit remorse probably more than the usual person. Taking photos of my personal style has made me pickier than I should be. Looking back at these photos, I wish I had gone with a full all-white outfit and thrown on my white blazer (or maybe invested in a winter white wool coat like this one by Theyskens' Theory. Love). Even so, I have all the love in the world for this Banana Republic coat, don't get me wrong. And I have definitely been gravitating towards neutrals lately  black, gray, white, beige. Maybe I'm just being boring? But I love mixing different textures and styles in a monochrome colour to really make something unique. And finally, I've stopped being afraid of wearing white in the colder months. An accomplishment to say the least. It's always kind of thrilling to step outside your comfort zone, right?

chase those dreams girl

"Every morning you have two choices: continue to sleep with your dreams, or wake up and chase them." Dreaming big has always been my 'thing.' I would talk about these grandiose ideas that I'd have, and my family never lets me forget the time I really wanted to become an astronomer (yup). I believed that discovering a new planet was definitely my calling. Turns out, I excelled in English rather than Science, but I digress. Truly, it has been a blessing to actually wake up at the crack of dawn, sit down at my desk and work towards my dream in Vancouver. Silhouette Social has been in operation for a week and it's already been one crazy, rewarding adventure! I honestly can't wait to see where we end up in a month, six months, a year. 

To thank everyone for their support in our soft launch, we want you to #ChicYourOffice with a giveaway on the Silhouette Social blog! Win Kate Spade + Chapters Indigo goodies for your desk to keep you inspired to chase your every dream. Happy Tuesday! xo

announcing silhouette social

Oh, happy day. I have been a busy bee these past couple of weeks, and I am absolutely thrilled to announce my new baby: Silhouette Social. Along with my business partner, friend, and most beautiful/caring/fabulous person I know (Hey Marissa!) we are embarking on this adventure of a lifetime. We both have dreamed about owning our own company someday, and it is surreal to think that today is that day. We are combining our strengths in design and social media to bring to life a digital creative agency. WOW. Just typing that gives me goosebumps.

When life closes a door, there is always a window open to let in a little sunlight. In this case, after my New York internship sadly fell through due to visa issues, I decided it was the perfect opportunity to pick myself up and start creating. I have never been so motivated, excited, anxious, stressed out, and undeniably happy in so long. So here you go, world. Here is Silhouette Social, a close-knit social media company in Vancouver, BC, that is built on big & bold ideas. I hope you love it as much as I do.

I truly appreciate all your support! This is such an exciting adventure and wow, I love you guys.
