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:

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
ISSA cross body purse, $318, Opelle (and this, too!)
They’re such pretty pieces, aren’t they?
