I thought I’d round up some of my favourite dresses for this season that would be great for Easter. I went out and got the first dress listed below, but I’m thinking I may have to pick up the others as well! Plus, Michael and I are going away on a very exciting trip this summer and these dresses would be perfect for it.
Old Navy: Patterned Boho Swing Dress. They seem to be sold out online but I picked mine up in store. AND it was on sale for 50% off so it was only $22!
Today I wanted to share some of my fashion staples that are under $50. I have a very “simple” style, most days opting for a t-shirt and cardigan. These are some of my favourite items that I think you NEED in your wardrobe!
These are moderately high waisted, so you never run the risk of showing anything you’re not supposed to, and they are very comfortable. Plus, they’re under $25! The only thing with these is that when you wear and wash them as much as I do, they do fade from their original black colour. But I don’t really mind this since they are so inexpensive.
This is the perfect t-shirt, it’s long enough that it covers your butt if you want to wear it with leggings, which is always a plus for me! I love to travel in leggings and running shoes (to be comfortable) so I’m always looking for a shirt that I can swear with this outfit, and this t-shirt is the perfect one!
This is a pretty basic item but I particularly love this in the winter, to wear under a cardigan or even a possibly scratchy wool sweater. It can also be great for when you’re wearing pants that have a busy pattern to tone it down a little bit.
I love throwing this on a simple or “plain” outfit to make it stand out a little. It’s also great to grab when you’re on the go and the weather is a little bit chillier. I love that it’s so versatile, it can keep you warm when it’s cool but if it gets warmer, you can take wrap it around your waist.
I hope you enjoyed this short list! What are some of your fashion staples?

Today I just wanted to share a fun & festive outfit that I’m wearing on my birthday.
I always love wearing “holiday” sweaters this time of year to get into the holiday spirit!
Sweater: I got this from Garage a couple of years ago but I can’t find it anywhere online. I found a super cute one from Forever 21, which I linked. This one from GAP factory is also another one I’d love to wear!
Today I’m sharing how to style a plain neutral sweater 3 ways: for the office (+ a small variation), for a night out and for a casual day. I bought this sweater at Forever 21.
The details for each outfit are at the end.
For the office: I paired the sweater with a blue & white striped dress shirt underneath, making sure to stick the collar of the shirt over the collar of the sweater. I tucked both of these into black dress pants and added silver flats. I’m using my work bag: the Kate Spade Cedar Street Jensen.
Variation: Replace the dress pants with black jeans and keep the dress shirt and sweater untucked for a more casual office look.
2. For a night out: I paired the sweater with black jeans, black patent heels, a gold statement necklace and a black cross body bag.
3. For a casual day out: I threw on some blue jeans, with my Steve Madden sneakers, my pink Kate Spade cross body bag (that goes with pretty much everything) and a Tiffany and Co. necklace.
Now for the details:
1.Dress pants: Costco. I couldn’t find them but I linked similar ones here.
Today I’m sharing this “comfy cozy” outfit. I love throwing on a t-shirt with a great chunky sweater/cardigan for an easy but “put-together” look. I especially love this cardigan because it keeps me so warm, and it is quite long, so I can wear leggings with it and be even more comfortable!
The details are below!
Beige t-shirt: I bought mine a couple of years ago at TJ Maxx but I found this similar one from Forever 21 for $4.90!!
Cream cardigan: GAP. I bought this last year at the outlet, but here’s a similar one.
Leggings: Champion. These are my favourite! I bought them about a year and a half ago and no matter how many times I wash them, they don’t lose their elasticity.
I thought I would share my three favourite sweaters/cardigans that are perfect for fall. These are what I like to call my “comfy cozy” sweaters.
Poncho-style turtle neck sweater from GAP. I got mine at the outlet so it can’t be bought online, but this is a similar one that I think would be just as warm and comfortable. Alternatively, I found this one from Reitmans that is almost the same colour.
2) Pink long sleeve cardigan. This one is SO soft. I bought this last year at Reitmans so this exact model isn’t available anymore, but this is a very similar one, in the same colour. And it’s on sale!
3) Burgundy sweater from Hollister. Currently on sale!
I hope you enjoyed this short round-up! I’m very big on effortless style and these are great to throw on over a basic t-shirt or tank top.
