Winter Nail Care

Winter on the East Coast of Canada is always cold.  Which unfortunately leads to dry skin and brittle nails for me during the winter months.  I must admit I usually do a pretty good job of taking care of my skin but unfortunately my nails usually get forgotten about.  This winter I am vowing to follow these steps below from Julep, to help keep my nails in tip top shape and have them all ready for those warmer months!

I am in love with these winter nail colours from Julep!  My favorites are Joanne and Shari.  What are yours?  You can check out more amazing nail colours here.

I'm Not Sure


Sweater - Jack by BB Dakota* || Skirt - c/o Blue Vanilla || Necklace - Stella & Dot || Boots - Steve Madden || Tights - Plush || Watch - Michael Kors

When I first received this skirt in the mail a few weeks back it was love at first sight.  The length, pattern and feminity are perfect; but when I put it on I wasn't so sure.  I find I always have a hard time styling skirts such as these and I'm not sure I even like how I styled it above.  But it certainly was a piece that took me out of my comfort zone.  I am still absolutely in love with it but would like a better way to style it.  What are your thoughts?  How would you style the above skirt?

Top - c/o eShakti || Pants - H&M || Shoes - Old Navy || Clutch - Manchester Shoe Salon || Sunnies - Coach || Bracelet - Stella & Dot

As a math teacher I love anything with a geometric print!  This adorable top from eShakti is now the perfect addition to my teaching wardrobe.  Even though these photos were taken in August, (and I took a bit of a blogging break - thanks for sticking around blog reader!) this shirt will now be on regular rotation in the work wardrobe.  I love the colours and how it fits perfectly!  That is the wonderful thing about eShakti, you can customize your size for any of their clothing!  I am absolutely smitten with this denim dress - so unique!  They also have a fabulous deal on right now, buy 2 get one free!  Check it out before this deal is gone!

The shirt was provided to me by eShakti for review.  All above opinions are 100% honest and my own.

Top - c/o Sugarhill Boutique (on sale!) || Shorts - Old Navy || Necklace - Stella & Dot || Sunnies - Coach || Shoes - Clarks || Watch - Michael Kors

Metallic was a trend I wasn't sure I could do.  I always thought it may be hard to work into an outfit.  When I saw this adorable tee from Sugarhill Boutique I knew it could work for me.  While I wasn't crazy about the heart cut outs that were on the sleeves, I did like the idea of rolling them up to add in a bit of contrast.  The material in this shirt is so soft and comfy, I am in love!  This will be paired with jeans all fall too!  What is your favorite way to wear metallic?

Sunshiny days

sugar hill boutique

After tropical storm Arthur and all this rain all I am dreaming of is sunshine and wearing bright pieces again!  I love the colours of these pieces from sugarhill boutique.  The green top could be worn on casual Friday or would look fabulous tucked into this bright yellow skirt.  A perfect summer office outfit.  

Hope everyone is safe after yesterday's storm!
