Splurge Item of the Week: Printed Maxi!

Printed Maxi from Splurge

This fun printed maxi dress is the SPLURGE HANDBAGS item of the week!  It's light, summery, and flattering on any figure!  I paired it with some luxe accessories, including the red stone earrings from Splurge.  To finish the look off, I added an unexpected pop of colour with the bag, and tied it all together with the white and gold jacket, belt and sandal.  

I put this look together specifically to transition from day to night; an idea for a weekend trip to a new city when you won't have time to get back to your hotel between daytime sight-seeing and exploring the nightlife when the sun goes down.

Off Shore with Theodore!


On Wednesday, I had the unexpected thrill of taking an afternoon tour on the famous Theodore Tugboat!  My good friend Brittany was our tour guide and did a great job of educating the passengers on some Halifax history, and about some of the other ships in the harbour!  This really is a beautiful city, and I am so lucky to be able to live in it, right on the water!  If you've never been to Hali, see these photos as evidence of just how magnificent this place is!

The Art of Sunshine


Yesterday I took full advantage of the glorious sunshine and marvellous weather we were having!  I went out afternoon adventuring with my sister.  We started with some cold beverages and explored our beautiful city with no real plan (which is always the best plan, I say).  She introduced me to a curated consignment shop Called BIG Pony - lots of unique pieces!

Next we decided to check out some local art galleries and antique shops.  I wanted to buy everything at Argyle Fine Art, but couldn't leave without two prints (see below) by Nova Scotia artist Jane Rovers!  The gallery staff laughed as I said, "I must have these - they match my drapes perfectly!".  Admittedly, it was a pretty funny thing to blurt out!  


We finished the day with a rooftop-patio bite and a little ride on this swing we discovered!  Perfect end to a spontaneous sunny afternoon!

 

Clearly having too much fun!

Turn it Up Tuesday! Ft. G.R.L.


This is a super fun jam by rising girl band G.R.L., and I love the story!  Basically the lyrics talk about a dude that is attractive to the eye but has a sh*tty personality, and the girl is like, "Peace out."  I'm all about focusing on someone's insides as much as their looks, and while I know that this is just meant to be a fun pop song, I love that they have the guts to just say this dude has an "Ugly Heart".

The fashion in this video is super fun.  Watch, enjoy, and stay away from the ugly hearts!

Turn it up Tuesday! Ft. Meghan Trainor



This week's Turn it Up Tuesday brings a newcomer with a super fun style and a message of self-worth!  It's so impressive and inspiring to see an artist make such a social statement with their first major single...talk about risk-taking!  But I am all about this jam!  Trainor fuses a doo-wop Jazz feel with hip-hop beats - Genius if you ask me!

Enjoy, and remember: You're beautiful no matter what size you are!

Splurge Item of the Week: L.A. Lovin'!

Splurge Item #2

This awesome L.A. tee from Splurge is the Item of the Week!  It's loose-fitting, simple, with just enough embellishment to give your outfit some attitude.  Because of the loose fit, I shared some options for bottoms that you could tuck this tee into to give you some figure!
