It’s peony season! If you follow designers, bloggers, and floral enthusiasts on Instagram or elsewhere, you’ll likely see a peony-infusion in your feeds. My mom brought me the first two cuttings from her garden over the weekend, and the blooms are just so pretty. I saved my readers from multiple photos this time, but I can’t promise that I’ll be stopping with this one!
The pretty peony has inspired this two-of-a-kind post.

Club Monaco releases beautiful collections each season, but its light, airy, and white pieces in the spring/summer collections are particularly beautiful. I rarely get to a Club Monaco store because we don’t have one in the Waterloo region, but when I do, I try to pick up a piece or two that will be a little something special in my wardrobe. This skirt and this skirt, for example, have served me well over the years!

coin necklace, $129 CAD (on sale)
Colby scalloped dress, $229 CAD

Last month, I bought these Cole Haan sneakers, and I’ve been wearing them almost daily (not in the rain!) since I bought them. They are so comfortable! These white ones are probably just as comfortable, and have their own distinct, classic Cole-Haan, basketweave pattern.
By now, many have you have heard that Jenna Lyons – J.Crew’s creative director – is on her way out after working with the brand for 26 years! I really like so many of J.Crew’s designs, but the prices are high for just-okay quality. I don’t buy anything at J.Crew unless it’s on sale from the store or the factory store. What about you?
These two lady jackets though – I want them both!

Recently, I styled some outfits with various totes from Sea Bags – a Maine shop that specializes in crafting high-quality bags and accessories using recycled sails.
Today, I’m taking you on a close-up tour of my customized tote. I adore it! Truly. Absolutely did not expect to love it as much as I do.
But, first, a photo of me during one summer of sailing (which made it onto the cover of Ontario Sailor magazine, by the way):
There I am in red, weighing the boat down…and enjoying the view, ignoring the fact that things were getting pretty wild on the high seas (ha ha – not the high seas, but it sounds¬† dramatic). It doesn’t look like I was working so hard, but I assure you that my role was essential. That’s what I like to tell myself! As a graduation gift from my Master’s program, my parents contacted the magazine and photographer and got their hands on the original photo. I now have it framed on my office gallery wall. I love it. This is a special photo and brings back many happy memories.
So now back to the whole point of this post – my Sea Bags tote. Do you see those massive sails on the boats? Sea Bags reuses olds sails like those and turns them into an amazing collection of totes.
My custom monogram tote arrived several weeks ago, and I was certainly surprised by the quality of it. For today’s post, I’m sharing five things that I like – really really like – about my customized Sea Bag tote.
1. The size. The tote is large, and it’s going to be a great bag to bring to Florida this summer. It’s also good for trips to the market and short getaways, too. The tote can fit a few towels, and it can certainly fit enough for an overnight trip.
2. The stitching. I knew the sail material would be substantial, but I didn’t expect the stitching to be so detailed and designy (yes, I just made up that word). This was a very nice surprise!
3. The clasp. Another pleasant surprise was the strength and weight of the clasp. This is an optional feature, and I would encourage you to opt-in. It’s a shiny detail that’s functional, too.
4. The custom letters. Anything personalized floats my boat. I’m thinking that my last name initial should have been the biggest and in the middle, but I may have placed my order too quickly to pay attention to monogram etiquette. Word to the wise – investigate the options before you place the order!
5. The extra inside pocket. This was an add-on, and I would certainly recommend it. Inside pockets like this are great for keys, lipstick, money, and more. I also like that the branding is on the pocket. This reminds me that my tote was Made In America by a team of passionate people!
There are so many options that you can consider when you place your Sea Bags tote order. My bag, for example, starts at $185 USD, but the inside pocket ($20) and the clasp ($10) were add-ons. The Sea Bags team used navy handles instead of the traditional hemp version on my bag, and I’m so happy that the Sea Bags team decided on these custom options for me. I’m very appreciative, and this design is definitely me!

I’m going to be riding in style this spring thanks to my newest bike accessory – or stylish necessity, I should say. Let me introduce you to my Thousand bike helmet. My brain is my most valuable asset, so here’s to keeping it protected while I ride around town on my Peugeot.
In addition to the classic, simplicity of the helmet, I love the eco-friendly leatherette strap and the magnetic open tab lock. Easy on-off action right there. The circle Thousand poplock that you see in the photo below is also magnetic and I can use the hole to tread my lock through it and lock up this beauty with my bike. I think this helmet’s design is fantastic all around! (Learn more about the Thousand design.)
And while I wait for the snow to melt, I can only take indoor selfies with the helmet. It’ll be much more useful to me when I’m on my Peugeot! ¬†¬†
All photos by me. All opinions are my own. Thanks to Thousand for partnering on this post.
After spending a few days in the North Carolina sunshine, then coming back to some warm(er) weather in Waterloo, I’m definitely ready to exchange my boots and bonhomme coat for some lighter layers.
And Anthropologie‘s current collection of easy pieces has got me thinking that I need to inject (even more) white into my wardrobe this spring/summer.

I know I’m not the only one around here who loves a good bow. Am I right? Look at these fancy mules from Winners (selection varies by store, of course) and the Vera Wang dinner plate. A perfect pair!

On Christmas Eve, I opted to wear this sweet striped top, and people seemed to love it as much as I do! Since then, I’ve added a bell-sleeved shirt to my wardrobe (or more pirate-like, a colleague has told me), and now I’ve seen this style popping up all over the place.
Let’s ring in the weekend with some bell sleeves, shall we?
Here are five inspiration outfits:

If you’ve been hopping around the blogs this winter, then you’ve surely seen the hype over L.L.Bean’s signature Bean Boots. Heck, there’s even a Bootmobile that’s been on tour! But, L.L.Bean has much more to offer than Bean boots and tote bags (two of its popular items, of course). On a recent browsing adventure, I realized how much I was drawn to L.L.Bean’s leather collection, and I thought the collection would start off some beautiful, wearable, and affordable outfits (all items from L.L. Bean!).
Outfit 1 was built around the leather crossbody. It’s a classic shape and works beautifully year-round.
Outfit 2 was inspired by Trask’s perforated slide. We’ve seen slides since the fall, and I think we’ll be seeing more of them this spring. These perforated versions are super sleek.
Outfit 3 was built from the bottom – up. It began with these handsewn leather loafers in a potentially surprising version – white.
Thanks to L.L.Bean for sponsoring this post.
It’s February. And it’s cold. So some may think it’s too early to talk about swimsuits. But I can’t help it. I’m dreaming of warmth and this photo of Kaylee and this photo of Rachel have inspired this swimsuit post (don’t the ladies look amazing, by the way?).

If you’re looking for ways to spread a little love around your home and wardrobe this month, I’ve done a little sleuthing to round-up some really special and pretty items.
Bisou vase, arrow tray, XOXO pillow, kiss kiss dish, arrow love tray, femme vase, Vivetta hearts shirt, Chiara Ferragni hearts t-shirt, Saint Laurent sunglasses, Love Moschino wallet, heart print robe, pajama blouse, journal, coin pouch, mugs
Although it’s still winter, and I would much prefer it to be over already, the colder temperatures mean that we can hygge for a little while longer. Get cozy. Stay warm. And maybe treat yourself to something special this weekend.

Up until recently, I knew very little about outdoorsy company, Patagonia. I associated the brand with fleece. Lots and lots of fleece. Fleece is not exactly my style. It’s true. But in one of my MBA classes about sustainability, a team of my peers presented a case for Patagonia’s sustainability practices, and I was very impressed.
Patagonia has a robust sustainability mission, and it is working to reducing its environmental impact. On each item’s web page, you can learn about the factories where the product has been made and material has been sourced. Further, Patagonia stands behind its products. It offers an ironclad guarantee, encourages repairs and replacements to extend an item’s life cycle, and promotes its reuse and recycle program. Hillary Clinton has been wearing her Patagonia for 20 years.
So, what does Patagonia have to offer in my favourite colour scheme? Let’s investigate!
What do you think? Are you investing in any Patagonia this winter? Are you already a loyal fan?
p.s. My MBA team investigated Canada Goose’s sustainability efforts. They’re not so impressive.
I’d love just about everything from clothing company Everlane. I placed my first order not that long ago to test the waters after reading so much about this company online. There are a lot of bloggers who seem to rave about Everlane, and I was curious about quality and fit. The images and styling suit my aesthetic, so I was definitely eager to see an item up-close.
I ordered a classic white tee, and it’s made of super soft material. It fits well, but it’s on the thinner side, so it’s a good one for layering.
I appreciate that the clothing descriptions include a link to the factories where they’re made. Everlane uses #KnowYourFactories to provide consumers with more information about its manufacturing processes. I was most interested in learning more about the Italian factories that produce some of Everlane’s leather goods.
cashmere crew, $100 (available in many colours)
cotton poplin sleeveless dress, $80
slim silk shirt, $78
modern smoking loafer, $160
The Petra market, $365 (available in other colours)
Everlane also has items for children and men, so it seems to be a great stop for the whole family.
Have you ordered anything from Everlane? What was your experience?
Have a great weekend, everyone!
Note: Shipping to Canada was just under $10 for my order. Images via Everlane.
I wear a white shirt at least once a week. Often more. I wear white shirts to work and on the weekend, too. In every season. And on a bike. And sometimes with sparkles. I wear white shirts with a suit jacket, with jeans, or under a cardigan. Short sleeve or long sleeve – I’ll take them all! I can’t get enough of them! (I feel like I’ve just channeled my inner-Dr. Seuss with that little blurb.)
That said, white shirts don’t last forever, and I have recently had to say good-bye to several of my favourites. It’s time to refresh my white shirt collection, and here are five beauties that have caught my attention.
Kate Spade poplin shirt (I actually own and love this shirt!)
Are you a fan, too? Any recommendations?
Have a great weekend, everyone!
The Duchess of Cambridge’s style always grabs my attention. I love just about every outfit she has been photographed wearing.
Her recent look in a floor-length Self-Portrait dress amazed me. She looked stunning in the white gown.
Here are some other beautiful white Self-Portrait dress in case you’re looking to channel your inner Duchess sometime soon.
Velvet has been everywhere in the fashion world this fall, but I think we’ll also be seeing it invade some of our home designs on both a small and large scale. While some may opt for rich jewel tones when it comes to velvet, I would encourage you to also think about how creamy velvet can warm up and add luxury to your home and wardrobe.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
The other day, I stopped in at the Simon Outlet Mall off the 401 on Trafalgar (is that officially Milton?). Even though I travel that way every few weeks, I rarely stop in because I dislike the crowds, and I never really have time for a leisurely browse. On this visit though, I was at the mall early enough on a Saturday to beat some of the crowds of people, so I stopped into a few stores. To my surprise, Kate Spade was having a super sale, so I scored big tiiiiiime.
That shopping trip then got me thinking about Kate Spade’s current collection, so of course I’ve opted to share my top picks with you today.

In one of my various online surfing adventures, I came across Spartan Shop and fell in love with just about every product in its inventory. One more beautiful than the next. Let’s just say I lingered a little while on the site.
Look at these beauties:

As you know, #WhiteCabanaWearsPink every Monday this month to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.
Today, we’re talking about mixing pink into your wardrobe.
First, some inspiration from Blair Eadie of Atlantic Pacific:
I love how Blair beautifully styles all-pink outfits. It’s easy to think about a monochromatic look in black, but pink? It’s not the colour that usually comes to my mind for a head-to-toe look. She also wears every shade of pink – blush, rose, bubblegum, and vibrant pinks, too.
Here are some pink pieces that have me staring.

Every Monday in the month of October, pink will be taking over White Cabana. This month, #WhiteCabanaWearsPink to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. Read more about #WhiteCabanaWearsPink.
Club Monaco is one of my all-time fave stores for beautiful pieces that fit me well. I can always find something that I like for work or casual wear when I’m at Club Monaco. Thankfully for my bank account, the closest Club Monaco is an hour away. The distance, however, doesn’t stop me from drooling at the online site.
Here are my top five picks currently at Club Monaco:
Hatleth ruffle sleeve top, $189.50
Hartford cost shirt, $215
Triete shearling coat, $899 (on sale)
Kapana skirt, $198.50
¬†Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
I’ve written about Toronto’s Opelle two years ago in this post, and I’m coming back to it because the collection of handbags is stunning. Co-owners Amy Malcolm and Beth Nicholson Crago have a beautiful aesthetic and their designs continue to catch my fashion-loving eye!
Vanda, $261 (on sale)
Botanist, $253 (on sale)
Roberta Sling, $195
I really like how Milton-based blogger Sabrina Smelko has styled the Lotus Weekender two ways in her recent post. Here’s a peek:

My oldest Longchamp bag is over 15 years old. When I first brought it back from France, Longchamp hadn’t yet made it to North America. Everyone was missing out on the usefulness of Le Pliage. Now, however, Longchamp has crossed the Atlantic, and its bags are available in multiple styles and colours in stores and online. Lucky us! Here are five of my current faves (beyond the classic Le Pliage collection)…
What do you think of Longchamp’s current collection? Have a great weekend, everyone!
Hello from sunny Florida! I’m having a grand ol’ time here doing just about nothing every day. It’s a real vacation!
You don’t need much more than a couple of bathing suits and some sunglasses when you’re here. It’s fabulous!
sunglasses, $7.90, Forever21
Haskell sunglasses, starting at $95, Warby Parker
Fendi cat eye sunglasses, $765CAD, Nordstrom

white sunglasses, $16.99, Target
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
p.s. Just look at this gorgeous beach.
I’m currently vacationing in sunny Florida! It’s super hot in Florida at the moment, and my friend Shannon and I have agreed that we should stick to a grueling schedule of beach-pool-beach-pool with some meals in between. Tough, yes. That’s how we roll when we’re in Florida! Of course, though, there’ll be days and nights of shopping trips, and we’re looking forward to a trip-within-a-trip to Sarasota. Oh – and we’ll be seeing two concerts while we’re here – Gwen Stefani and the Dave Matthews Band. Very cool. Good times ahead!
I’m a decent packer, and I generally have a good sense of what outfits I may need while I’m on vacation. That said, I sometimes pack more than I need and I don’t like lugging around useless weight. For this vacation, I wanted to pack light – absurdly light – because (a) I don’t wear much more than bathing suits while I’m here, (b) it’s too hot to wear more than a bathing suit, and (c) I’m hoping for a few sales which means I’ll be returning with a heavier luggage on my way home. I’m so good at supporting the American economy when I’m in Florida that I should really get a prize.
I’m (almost) ready to challenge myself to stick to a very strict colour scheme this trip. I’m starting with two navy/white bikinis that I picked up in Copenhagen last month from H&M. Most of my packing for this trip revolved around navy/white (quite a departure from the usual black and white, I know). Here’s what I considered (and just about ended up following through on) packing for this vacation (very similar items, not necessarily the exact items).
sunglasses, sun hat, watch, dress, bikini, kaftan coverup, flip flops, white tee,¬†white denim shorts, purse, navy shorts, dress, tank top, striped bikini, sneakers, sweatshirt, pajamas, sandals, sports bra, sports tank, running shoes, running skirt
What do you think? Could you spend two weeks in Florida with these 22 pieces?
Hello again dear readers! Welcome back! I hope you didn’t mind the break. I meant to come back to the blog yesterday and share news about Copenhagen, but I was having issues with my photos, so my posts remain in draft form at the moment. They’re not quite ready to be published. Thanks in advance for your patience and I battle jet-lag and get my life reorganized after by 2+ week holiday. (Tough life, I know.)
For today, since it’s Tuesday, I’ll share two they’re-so-much-alike items. And since it’s summer (my favourite season), and the beach is nearly always on my mind, I thought I’d bring some scallops to the web pages of White Cabana.
A few weeks ago, I bought a great outfit at Banana Republic, and it was so nice to add some new pieces to my wardrobe. I don’t go clothes shopping as often as I used to, I have to admit. This is partly because I don’t have time and partly because I don’t need or want anything specific (gosh, I sound so practical and boring, don’t I?).
Even still, I love to browse online and in stores (when I can) to see the new colours and collections each season. Here are some of the items that have recently caught my attention.
one shouldered top, $180, Theory
white jean shorts, $44.95, L.L.Bean
short sleeve embellished tee, $88, Banana Republic (I bought this and love it!)
Bev cut-out heel, $128, Banana Republic
Loeffler Randall sandal, $220, Club Monaco
dress, $69.90, Zara
They’re such pretty pieces, aren’t they?
I love having fresh flowers in my home. I’m good with just about any flower – carnations, hydrangeas, peonies, freesia, orchids, roses…you really can’t go wrong. Fresh flowers add elegance, joy, and sunshine to any room.
Since it’s spring, peonies are in full bloom, but I like today’s focus on the lily flower. Aren’t they both so pretty?

I wore a white-on-white-on-white outfit last weekend, and I loved it. It’s such a fresh clean look, and it makes me feel super summery. Thinking of all-white summer ensembles prompted¬† me to browse through some of my favourite shops to see what white dresses they have to offer us this summer.
Here we go…
Nadeer eyelet dress, $279, Club Monaco
off-the-shoulder dress, $149, J.Crew
linen v-neck and flare dress, $62.99 (on sale), Gap
pleated skirt sweater dress, $428, Kate Spade
DVF cotton eyelet dress, $410, Diane von Furstenberg
Aren’t they pretty?
Last month, I introduced you to Needham Lane’s sleepwear collection. I’ve been wearing my pj sets ever since they arrived, and they’re doing very well. The fabric is soft, the fit is good, and my sets have survived multiple turns through the washer and dryer. Yes, dryer, too.
I packed them up for my recent trip to Toronto, and my friend Shannon was kind enough to take some photos (she found her inner Nigel Barker-noted fashion photographer). While I know models prepare for photoshoots with the help of a hair, makeup, and styling team, I prepared by waking up, brushing my teeth, and brushing my hair. I opted for a low-fuss,¬†au naturel approach (did I have a choice?).
I actually slept in the Maxwell long sleeve pajama, and I wear this one regularly because I like the long sleeves and pants. I like the black and white checkered pattern, too.
(I’m only pretending – did I fool you?)
wearing the Maxwell long sleeve pajama
In addition to the checked long sleeve set, Needham Lane sent over the¬†Madison fuchsia short sleeve capri pajama. It’s hard to resist a crisp white set, and I like the punch of fuchsia. The pants have a fuchsia drawstring, but I’d recommend that Needham Lane look into adding fuchsia piping on the pant cuff too.
I set up the chess board, but it was just for show (#honestblogger).
walking in pjs and slippers with coffee (why not, right?)
I couldn’t resist jumping in my PJs (let’s just call this my morning exercise routine)

I also brought along the Pippa aqua kimono robe. The robe is white, but it has aqua piping around the edges and cuffs. If you’re not into white, I’d encourage you to look into all the other colourful robes at Needham Lane. This would make such a nice gift for Mother’s Day or a friend’s birthday. The Pippa might just become my new go-to travel robe. It’s easy to throw into luggage, and it adds an additional layer of comfort when you’re away from home. I basically danced around in it for the photos…

I should let you know that although Needham Lane has a large selection of colourful sleepwear (not everything is black and white). And the last chance section has some incredible deals at the moment (e.g., this cornflower blue pajama is only $20). Shipping to USA is $5 and to Canada is $20. Finally, if you sign up to Needham Lane via email, you’ll get a 20% off coupon code. Bonus!
What’s prettier or more feminine than ruffles? Okay, maybe hearts and bows, but ruffles are still at the top of the femininity list, right? They’re great for your wardrobe and your home as you can see by today’s two-for-Tuesday.

Just until about 3 or 4 years ago (or maybe 5?), I completely avoided stripes in my wardrobe. If something had stripes on it, I’d look the other way. Nowadays, though, I can’t resist them. Mostly, I go for the horizontal variety, but I also look for something a bit unusual (e.g., I loved this Banana Republic top as soon as I put it on).
Here are several stripes that caught my eye.

Signature boatneck stripe top, L.L.Bean

I’d like to wish my sister a very happy birthday today!
Happy birthday, Corie!
I hope your day is super fun and fabulous! If only you had this tiara to go with your t-shirt and jeans, right?

Yes, it’s true, I’m a newbie fan of L.L.Bean, and there’s no turning back. I have been so extremely happy with the quality and design of the items I have received in the last few months. Now that the weather has warmed up slightly, I’ve hung up the long 850 DownTek coat (except when it suddenly gets cold), and I’ve been wearing the Maine Lodge 850 DownTek Hoodie almost daily. So many people have complimented me on it, too, and it seems like they’ve been surprised that it’s an L.L.Bean jacket. Their curiosity has been piqued! In addition, my black L.L.Bean skinny jeans have been put through the washer and dryer on a weekly basis, and they’re still holding their quality and shape. Good news!
So today I thought I’d share with you my top five must-haves for spring from L.L.Bean.

What do you think? Do you have your eye on other items? Let me know!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
Did everyone have a nice long weekend? I just ended a glorious 5-day weekend! It started with a surprise snow day on Thursday (say what!?), which meant that (basically) the Waterloo region shut down. We had a crazy ice storm, and I was happy to get some random, minor projects done around my home and then embrace my lazy side.
Friday, my new bed arrived (oh my goodness – it’s so. darn. glorious.). I’ll share photos in the months ahead once I (finally) buy a new mattress (any suggestions?), upgrade my nightstands, and buy the perfect bedside lamps. This is the Year of My Bed, and this makes me happy!
Saturday and Sunday was family time…which involved a lot of food and loud discussions.
I took Monday off, too, and with the weather so dreary, I was in the mood for a few errands and a lot of nothing.
And this brings us to Tuesday…time for a two-for-Tuesday comparison! Today it’s all about texture!
