FASHION FRIDAY — OOTD: Red For Hemophilia ♥️

Hello lovelies & Happy Friday! Today’s Fashion Friday post is dedicated to something special — April 17th is World Hemophilia Day, a fact brought to my attention by my friend Victoria (aka @hitchingsstitches on Instagram). Last year I did some beautiful red roses, but since it falls on Friday this year, I wanted to dedicated my OOTD.

For those who might not know, hemophilia is a bleeding disorder that personally affects both her beautiful little boys. As a Mom, I can’t image dealing with something so scary, so I’m always happy to show my support. In fact, myself & both kiddos are wearing red to show support today (& if I can I’ll try to get a picture of all three of us!)

Red Puff Sleeve Blouse from H&M (similar one from this season here). Dark Levi’s slimming skinny jean. Not Pictured: Black Flats

I bought this shirt almost two years ago on clearance at H&M, & absolutely fell in love with the dramatic sleeves. But honestly, I think I’ve actually worn it once… maybe. But after my post looking at old outfits of years past, I’ve kind of been inspired to pull out my more stand out pieces from my closet. I mean, that’s when I’m not wearing my usual social isolation rotation of sweats. Haha.

What do you think about this look? Are you wearing red today for World Hemophilia Day? If you haven’t thought about it, & have the chance, I definitely enough you to throw something red on (your favourite red shirt, your favourite red polish) & use the hashtag #redforhemophilia on Instagram if you post about! ♥️

FASHION FRIDAY — Reacting to Old Outfits

Hello lovelies & happy Friday.

Today I have a bit of a different Fashion Friday post to share with you. I’ll be honest — like in self isolation means the majority of the time I’m wearing comfy pants & my favourite sweatshirts, which while I think I look adorable, aren’t really the most fashion forward looks. So I had a really fun idea for today’s post — I thought I would react to old fashion looks from my old blog!

Once upon a time, aka 10+ years ago, I used to document my daily fashion looks. It’s been a while since I went through that old blog, but I actually really love looking at old pictures & old outfits — it’s like a time capsule into another time in my life.

So let’s take a stroll down memory lane!

FASHION FRIDAY — My 5 Favourite Dresses for Spring (from my own closet)

Hello lovelies & happy Friday. & happy first FULL day of Spring!

It feels like I’ve been waiting for this day too long. & even though it doesn’t quite feel like Spring yet, that doesn’t mean I haven’t already started dreaming about wearing all my favourite Spring-y dresses — literally, as soon as it’s warm enough I don’t think about wearing pants. I’m all about the dress. So just for fun I thought I’d share my 5 favourite dresses to wear when it comes to warmer months, all from deep in my own closet!

FASHION FRIDAY — Headband Obsessed (A mini haul)

Hello lovelies! Hope everyone is having a lovely start to their Friday. This week’s Fashion Friday post is dedicated to my current favourite accessory — the headband. More specifically, the slightly padded & knitted headband that I’ve seen all over Instagram & Pinterest.

Here’s the thing — I LOVE headbands. I’ve always loved headbands. I have a whole drawer full of floral headbands I collected a few years back. & I’ve really been wanting to jump on this knotted headband trend for a while, but getting out to shop has kind of been a struggle the last few months. So I thought, now that I’m gearing up to return to work at the end of the month, it would be fun to get myself some new headbands. Plus with my new hair cut, I’ve been much more excited to actually DO things with my hair.

Cue a mini haul of headbands!

FASHION FRIDAY — My New Haircut for Spring 2020

Hello lovelies & happy Friday! I’m back with another brand new Fashion Friday post!

Recently I’ve been seeing everyone with the haircut of the moment: the bob. Obviously, the bob is not a new hair style — it’s been around FOREVER — but I seems to be making a resurgence & after seeing whole lot of amazing looking short bob inspiration, I decided it was time to bring my hair back to life after almost two years of bleaching it! I needed a new & fresh cut & I knew that I needed this trendy hair cut in my life again.

For those who don’t know what my hair looked like before, here it is: faded blue ombré with long layers. & some sad looking natural wave that were kind of dead thanks to the over-bleaching.

Before

& now for the after….
