Ponytail Mail



My daughter and I go through a lot of hair elastics.  Between both of us in dance class, ponytails for my daughter at school and whenever I need to have my hair out of my face, it feels like we are always looking for an elastic.



These hair ties are handcrafted in Toronto, ON (who doesn't love to support Canadian businesses!).  The soft stretchable elastic won't rip your hair or leave creases in it.  Plus they come in great colours and you can wear them on your wrist as accessories.




I love how soft these elastics are and how easily they go in and around your hair.  The colours are great and can be matched to any outfit!



Ponytail Mail also offers a subscription service which allows you to pick from 5 to 20 hair ties that will be shipped directly to your door every month (or every other month if you prefer).  Not into the subscription thing?  They also offer single hair ties, collections and headbands.  (Note:  They currently only ship within Canada)

Try-day Friday

Hat - Lyla & Bo c/o *Ella ||  Tee - *Ella || Jeans - Old Navy || Booties - Guess || Watches - Michael Kors

At Christmas time, Ella ran this super fun 10 days of giveaways where they would hide a gift somewhere in the city and post clues in their Instagram stories.  It was always so fun to see where the gifts were hidden each day.  I was one of the lucky ones to find a gift certificate for this hat (Huge thanks Ella!)  I'm not going to lie when I first got this hat I thought I could never pull it off.  But thanks to Dia&Co. who challenged me to step outside my comfort zone, I put this outfit together last weekend.  At first I wasn't too sure about it, but my daughter kept telling me how much she liked the hat and how pretty I looked (5 year olds are so sweet!).  I definitely think this is an outfit I am going to be wearing again.  I'd love to see you face your fashion fears.  What is the one thing you are afraid to wear and step out of your fashion comfort zone?

Casual Sunday









Top - Vero Moda via The Clothes Mine || Jeans - Yoga Jeans || Boots - Hunter || Necklack - Beck & Boosh || Watch - Michael Kors

Sundays in our house are always so relaxing.  We have a nice easy morning, go to church and then in the afternoon usually curl up and watch a movie or go outside and play.  This past sunday the temperatures were so nice and warm we went public skating and then made a snowman while our little man slept.  Laid back Sunday's are always my favorite.  And with relaxing comes comfortable clothes.  The top I am wearing is from The Clothes Mine here in Saint John.  It is a second hand store with many items that still have tags attached!  When I purchased this piece a couple of weeks ago I didn't realize how quickly this simple striped shirt would become a staple in my wardrobe.  Basics such as this shirt look great with jeans, dress pants or tucked into a skirt!  What are some of your basics and favorite Sunday activities?

Summer, please?





Dress - c/o Milliemeno || Necklace - Giant Tiger || Shoes - Nine West || Watch - Michael Kors

Can we just go back to summer now please?  As the second snow storm this week goes on outside, I just wanted to share with you a look from last summer that I didn't get a chance to share on the blog.  I am totally in love with this dress and I want to say a huge thank you to Milliemeno and Rebecca of Winnipeg Style for this adorable dress that I won in her instagram giveaway last year.  This dress got some major wear last year and will again this summer, but first does someone want to come shovel my driveway?

Heart Fun






Jacket - Dex || Tee - Heart Fun || Jeans - Black Orchid Denim || Booties - c/o Sole Society || Necklace - Stella & Dot

How adorable is this heart fun tee?  Even more awesome is that all proceeds are donated to great causes.  These shirts were created by 7 year old Kaiya.  She has a youtube channel and her mission is to spread love and joy to everyone.  Be sure to check out her videos which document her journey to spread kindess.  She is the sweetest little girl!  Ten percent of all proceeds from the sale of these shirts go to non-profits that promote inclusion.  I am wearing a youth medium above, now my daughter wants to wear it.  Stay tuned for how she styled it.

Plus can I just say how in love I am with this moto-jacket from Ella.  I can't believe that I never had one before this.  I have worn it with jeans and over dresses to work.   A very versatile piece to add to your closet.  Looking forward to stopping by Ella tomorrow.  Enjoy your weekend!

Too Long

Happy 2017!  I am so happy to finally be back with a blog post.  It has been way too long.  Finishing up my masters has completely taken over everything but in the spring I will be back full force.  Only one more course to go!  So for now, I will post when I can but I am super excited to be back blogging more regularly.  You can always follow along on instagram (@sighgushgasp) for more frequent posts.

Today I am so happy to be showing you this skirt from eShakti.  They are a great website that allows you to customize your clothing - length, sleeve style, etc.  I personally love them because it allows me to make sure my skirt lengths are just right and that everything fits perfectly!  This skirt is now going to be on regular rotation in my closet, totally in love with it!  Plus it has pockets, enough said. 

Here are a few of my favorites from their site:
-  Have you seen their simple, yet so perfect, boat neck knit top?  So verstaile and could be worn through all seasons.  Could I have one in every colour, please?
- eShakti now makes jeans!  For a tall girl like me this is a dream come true!  I can now order jeans that have a long enough inseam.  I am loving these skinny jeans in indigo.
-And how cute is this asymmetrical hem dress?  Great for work and will take you from winter to spring!

Goodbye Summer






Dress - Pink Stitch || Necklace - J.Crew via EBay || Shoes - Sole Society || Sunnies - Maui Jim || Watch - Michael Kors

This time of year starts to mark the end of summer.  The temps start dropping and back to school shopping is in full force.  I love summer so much but it is always so short.  This dress (which I purchased last summer) has been amazing!  It is so great for those warm days (which we have had a lot of this summer, yay!) and is the perfect combination of pulled together and comfy.  So with the long weekend upon us - goodbye summer, until next time....
