Toddler Tiger








Dress - c/o Giant Tiger || Sunnies - Mexx || Necklace - Carter's || Shoes - Keen

One great thing about Giant Tiger is their fabulous selection of kids clothes.  While at I was the Grand opening in St. Stephen last weekend, I picked up this adorable dress there for $5 (yes you read that right, $5!).  Best of all my little girl loves it and it is perfect for summer!  She loves it so much she has already asked to go there to do back to school shopping for clothes.  I can definitely see many mother daughter shopping trips there in our future :).  Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine!

Grand Opening - Giant Tiger St. Stephen


On Saturday I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of the Giant Tiger location in St. Stephen.  This was my first time in a Giant Tiger store and I was very pleasantly surprised!  The store is so bright and everything is laid out in a way that makes it easy to find everything.
Giant Tiger not only has fun but also very affordable fashion.  As a busy mom to two kids, affordability and quality are important to me; both of which Giant Tiger offers.  I had the opportunity to check out their clothing lines and I wasn't disappointed (outfit posts to come!).  They have three lines - Lily Morgan, myStyle and ACX (active wear).  Lily Morgan was my favorite out of the 3 brands, as it offers a dressier option in all sizes.  That is another wonderful thing about Giant Tiger, it does not matter what size you are, they have everything from sizes 0 to 24.
Giant Tiger is not only a fabulous store but they are involved in the communities their stores are located in.  On Saturday, they had a wonderful BBQ going on with the proceeds going to the St. Stephen High Hockey team.  The whole opening had the feel of a summer party with great music, food and the wonderful staff, along with treats at the checkout and Friendly the Giant Tiger!  Elsa and Spiderman were also on hand from 1 - 3pm to take photos with the kids.  The store hours of the St. Stephen location are Monday - Saturday 8:00am to 9:00pm and Sundays from 10:00am to 5:00pm.


I can't wait to go back and shop!  I had a wonderful time!  A huge thanks to Giant Tiger for inviting me!  Stay tuned for outfit posts featuring items from Giant Tiger.

National Champions






Blazer - RW & Co. || Tank - Target || Skirt - Jacob || Necklace - Stella & Dot || Heels - Old Navy || Watch - Michael Kors

Our Reach for the Top team recently came home with the National title.  To celebrate their win and return, our school held blue and white day (our school colours).  I wanted to keep my look professional but incorporate our school colours at the same time.  These Old Navy heels that I picked up a couple of years ago were perfect and are such a fun shade of blue!  Congrats again to our team on their big win and all their hard work!

The Right Cut






Blazer - Zara || Tank - The Pickled Paisley || Jeans - Black Orchid Denim  || Necklace - Stella & Dot || Shoes - Nine West ||  Watch - Michael Kors

 This white blazer is the perfect cut. It always lay perfectly, it really makes me wish I had bought one of them in every colour.  It has become a staple in my word wardrobe and I wear it at least once a week.  Plus how fun is this polka dot top!  It is cute and flowy, so perfect for summer!  Have a great weekend!

Party Ready






Tank & Leatherette leggings - Joe fresh || Blazer - Numph || Booties - c/o Sole Society || Necklace - Stella & Dot || Bracelet - Baubles || Watch - Michael Kors || Earrings - Silver Daisy

This outfit was purchased for my Christmas party in December but has gotten worn many times since then.  I wore it most recently on our evening out to Beer Fest here in Saint John.  I love the mix of texture with the faux leather and sequin.  And did I mention how fabulous this tank is?  I love it so much I also bought it in blush pink.  I can't wait to style them both this summer when the warmer weather arrives.  What is your go to outfit for those evenings out?

Mixed






Jeans - Black Orchid Denim ||  Tee - Joe Fresh || Blazer - Smart Set || Scarf - H&M || Sunnies - Maui Jim || Shoes - Sole Society || Earring - Beck & Boosh


 When I first started mixing patterns I never would have thought I would have loved the combination of stripes and leopard as much as I do.  For me, stripes and leopard together are a classic combination.  I not only pair this tee and scarf together, but I pair this scarf with a black and white striped dress for work.  The key thing to remember when mixing patterns is to make sure one pattern is smaller than the other.  What are your favorite patterns to mix?

Black, White and Red All Over






Blazer - Smart Set || Top - Joe Fresh || Pants - Yoga Jeans || Necklace - Stella & Dot || Shoes - Sole Society || Sunnies - Maui Jim || Earrings - Beck & Boosh || Watch - Michael Kors


This week was myfirst week back to work after maternity leave.  How does a year go so fast?  In many ways after the first day it felt like I never left.  And I must admit it is nice to re-discover all my work clothes!  It is almost like having a whole new wardrobe to wear.  This was the outfit I wore for the first day back (which was a PD day for teachers).  The yoga jeans pictured above are my favorite and are so comfy!  Plus they fit well and are long, a bonus for me!  Also I love that yoga jeans are Canadian. What are your favorite jeans?
