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?

Top - Joe Fresh || Vest - BB Dakota || Necklace - Silpada c/o Silpada rep Tracey Taylor || Jeans - Old Navy || Earrings - Silver Daisy || Bracelet - Baubles || Watch - Michael Kors || Boots - Marshalls

Easter is one of my favorite holidays - the fun of the Easter egg hunt and enjoying a delicious meal with family.  When ever I wear this vest I sort of feel like the Easter bunny.  This vest is so furry, warm and cozy, I can only imagine what a bunny would feel like!  This is also one of those outfits that I can throw on without really thinking about it, yet look great and be able to chase after the kids all day.  And after the Easter bunny comes I'm sure I'll be chasing after the kids from eating all that chocolate.  Hope everyone has a lovely Easter with their loved ones!

Jumpsuit - c/o eShakti || Necklace - Stella & Dot || Bracelet - Baubles || Watch - Michael Kors || Shoes - Nine West

This jumpsuit was my go to at the end of the summer last year when I needed to get dressed up.  It is the perfect way to feel pulled together quickly without having to think about much.  Plus, I LOVE that the neckline on this comes complete with a snap making it easy for this mama to nurse while on the go. This outfit will be going back into rotation once spring hits!  Plus at it is super easy to customize your outfit.  You can customize everything from the length of a dress to the sleeve type.  Customization is great if you are like me a have a problem with length.  You do pay a bit extra but it is worth it.  I loved the cropped style of this jumpsuit making it great for summer!  What are some of your favorites at eShakti?

Rainy Days

Blazer - Numph || Tee - Joe Fresh || Jeans - Joe Fresh || Necklace - Stella & Dot || Bracelet - Baubles || Earrings - Silver Daisy || Boots - Hunter || Boot Cuffs - handmade by my Mom

Lately it feels as if spring has come early.  These days are full of mild weather and rain, perfect weather to try out my new hunter boots that my hubby got me for Christmas!  The boots cuffs that my mom made are also perfect to help keep my legs warm if the days turns cold.  And lately a tee and a blazer seems to be my go to for outfits; such a quick and easy way to feel pulled together but comfy enough to chase after the kids.  What are your go to wardrobe items at this time of year?

Blazer - Numph || Top - c/o My Home Apparel || Necklace - Beck & Boosh || Jeans - Black Orchid Denim || Boots - via Marshalls || Lips - Mary Kay Nourishine Lip gloss in Rock N' Red

Home, a place we all love to go.  When I won this shirt from My Home Apparel on Facebook before Christmas I was estatic.  I am very lucky to still live in my home province of New Brunswick and it is very near and dear to my heart.  As a former Miss New Brunswick as well, I certainly wear this shirt with pride.  I always receive so many compliments on it each time I wear it.  My favorite part of it is the New Brunswick flag inside the shape of our province.  I also love how great my Beck & Boosh necklace looks with it.  Both My Home Apparel and Beck & Boosh are based out of Nova Scotia. If you haven't checked them out before, you NEED to!  I love being able to support Canadian companies.

What is your favorite thing about home?
