Like a Royal // Winter Fashion Inspiration

This week's outfit is a mix of romantic & modern vibes.  The stripes, over the knee boots and bold royal blue jacket are throughly modern but the lace crop top adds a touch of femininity!

I love that this crop top from Yoins has a high neckline which keeps the look classy even though the top is a little bit sheer (is classy crop top an oxymoron?!?).  I wore a simple white tank underneath for our photoshoot, but the pattern is busy enough that you could easily pull off wearing it with just a nude coloured bra underneath.  Just make sure to pair it with high waisted bottoms to keep the look polished.

Victorian Inspired // via Cherbourg, France

Today's blog post comes from the charming French city of Cherbourg.  Cherbourg is located along the English channel, in the beautiful region of Normandy, France.  The lovely town is brimming with rich history and while walking along the coastline, we passed by an oversized cement bunker, evidence of the past wars you'd otherwise have never known were once fought here.

Cherbourg was the last city we visited on our trip that used euros as their currency.  Therefore, we spent most of our day finding bakeries and coffee shops to sample goodies and spend all of our remaining change on.  It was here, that I discovered the opera cake (the most divine french confection made of a light almond cake, chocolate ganache and espresso).  If you are ever in France, you must try this wonderful dessert!

Winter Darling

Shooting fashion in winter is always a challenge, but when the temperature dips below -40, our photoshoots end up something like this... arrive at our photoshoot location, take photos for one minute, notice our fingers are turning bright red (we can photoshop that right?), keep shooting another minute, okay its getting reeaaally cold now, run back to car to warm up, check photos, realize our lens fogged up from the temperature changes and everything looks blurry, run outside again, take more photos, run back to car,  repeat process 2-3 more times before eventually giving up and grabbing coffee!  So, yes, blogging in winter is obviously very glamorous! ;)

Now, on to today's outfit!  I'm very pleased with this leopard coat from Yoins.  It arrived looking exactly as pictured and is perfect for adding a little pattern to an otherwise neutral outfit.  It's nicely lined and because of its sleek fabric I think it would make for a lovely rain coat to wear this spring!

The Best of 2015!

So this has maybe been one of the longest breaks in posting I've ever had, but I wanted to start off 2016 with a recap and I have majorly been struggling on how to write this post!  For the past two weeks, I've had a case of "I'll finish writing it tomorrow" because lets be honest.... 2015 has been a pretty big year.

This year, we designed a house, built it and finally moved in.

We finally took the family trip to Paris we had always dreamed about.  Then traveled to Germany, Spain, Denmark & Portugal.

A White Christmas - Holiday Outfit Inspiration

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break! Here in Winnipeg, we had a beautiful white Christmas with lots of fluffy snow.  We have been non-stop busy over the holidays visiting with friends and connecting with extended family, but now that the new year is almost upon us, I'm excited to be back in my office creating some exciting new content for you guys!

Now, on to today's outfit inspiration post!  Every time Christmas time rolls around, I love to bring this old floral skirt out from the back of my closet.  It's actually a vintage dress my mom wore when I was younger (I have an old family Christmas photo of my mom wearing it when I was a baby!).  It used to have oversized white lace detailing on the top that screamed 1980's but with a little sewing I repurposed into a classic pencil skirt.
