Summer Dresses Under $50

My Weekend Travel Essentials

This weekend I was able to travel out of the the city and enjoy myself in wine country. A weekend away was exactly what I needed. The open air, good wine, and fantastic company!

Weekend travel is short and sweet, but always worth it. I always make sure to pack my bag for anything I could need, especially when the weather is fluctuating.

Here is my weekend travel essential list.Read More

Favourites Friday #56

This week’s favourites are a collection of the items that have become a godsend on this cold winter mornings.Read More

I’m two weeks into my job and I already have figured out exactly what outfits work with the dress code and keep me comfortable from 7:30-4:30. It’s an art, trust me.

This week I thought I’d share a week’s worth of outfits that I think are great for work and will provide the same comfort as those college year leggings.Read More
