Rachel was super helpful and I absolutely loved all her choices for me.

The Ultimate Vegas Outfit

Top - Target || Skirt - Jack by BB Dakota via *Ella || Shoes - c/o Sole Society || Sunnies - Coach || Bracelet - Baubles || Necklace - Silpada c/o Silpada rep Tracey Taylor || Clutch - Manchester Shoe Salon

I absolutely LOVE Las Vegas!  Oh the shopping, shows and food are just amazing!  I haven't been there for a few years but I will definitely go back.  I recently came across where you can easily find information on any hotel in Las Vegas. For their #UltimateVegasOutfit challenge I chose to base my outfit around The Cosmopolitan resort. I love the modern look of it and the pop of pink in the Marquee club.  The pop of pink in my outfit was inspired by the photos of the Marquee.  This is a great outfit to wear during the day with a pair of flats to tour the strip and to go shopping.  Then switch out those flats for heels, put on some great jewelry and pair with a clutch for a great outfit to go out for the evening.  When I go back maybe I will get to stay at the Cosmopolitan!  

Someone wanted in on the fun of photos.  I'm sure she'll love Vegas someday too :)

Keepin' it Fresh

Top & Pants - Joe Fresh || Necklace - Stella & Dot || Shoes - Sole Society || Sunnies - Coach || Watch - Michael Kors

Joe Fresh is always so tempting everytime I go grocery shopping.  I was so excited when I found this top while shopping at Joe Fresh earlier this summer, as it is perfect for nursing!  Plus these Joe Fresh pants are the perfect pant for the end of summer and the colour works great for fall too.  Gotta love pieces that span many seasons!  Plus I think I have lived in these Sole Society heels every chance I got this summer.  I love the d'orsay style and am planning on adding more to my closet.  Plus who doesn't love a little leopard?  

Hope you are enjoying these last few days of summer!

Silpada Feature & a Giveaway

Silpada is known for its high quality, hand crafted sterling silver jewelry.  Another great thing about Silpada is ALL items from all collections hold a lifetime guarantee. 

A year ago they launched their K & R line of fashion jewellery, and both collections compliment one another.  I am a gold toned jewelry lover so when they came out with this collection I was thrilled.   But even more exciting is the launch of their accessories line.  This collection just launched this fall and if you are like me, you will have a hard time deciding which is your favorite!  A huge thank you to my Silpada Rep Tracey for letting me have a look at all these beautiful items! 

Army green is a great colour for fall, and looks amazing when paired with animal print in the Timeless Tortoise Watch and Zahara Clutch. 

Isn’t this Dakota handbag just the best!  I love the fringe detail and the leather is so buttery soft!  This is definitely on my wish list!

Scarves are so versatile and an essential accessory for fall.  Here are just 2 ways to wear these Silpada beauties!

I love tying the Olivia Scarf so the beautiful orange tones shine through. 

With the many ways to wear scarves, why not tie your scarf so you can wear it like a vest.  The Sloan scarf is perfect for this and wearing it as a vest is a great way to transition your wardrobe into fall (and get extra wear out of your wardrobe). 

Now for the exciting giveaway….

DSW Moncton Opening Event

What girl doesn't love sparkle?  And they certainly had a huge selection of shoes with bling!

It was so hard not to want to buy everything!

I love the mixture of textures in these boots!

My love for shoes goes back many years.  It is a love I share with my sisters and my mom; my 3 year old daughter has our inherited our love of shoes gene too.  So when I heard that DSW was coming to Moncton I was over the moon!  I had been an admirer of the shoes on their website for years.  And when I was invited to their VIP event I was ecstatic! 

The event exceeded my expectations with a candy bar, amazing food, drinks and a $25 gift card!  My 2 hour shopping experience was pure bliss and I kept going up and down the aisles multiple times.  I am sure I saw different things each time I went up and down the rows.  In the end I ended up with a gorgeous pair of coach flats (the ones I am trying on above) and a pair of Naturalizer boots for fall.

If you have never been to a DSW location you NEED to go there!  Not only do they have fabulous prices on their shoes, and a wide variety of styles; but they also carry beautiful purses and jewelry as well.  I can't wait to go back!  Anyone want to go shoe shopping?
