Masquerade Ball

Last weekend I had the privilege of attending a Masquerade Ball benefiting Mamas for Mamas!  If you haven’t heard of Mamas for Mamas they are a non-profit organization that supports all mothers who are in crisis in Kelowna and surrounding areas.  As a mama of two very little children this really hits home and I was so happy to support this event.  Jillian Harris is their Celebrity Mama Ambassador and I think it is so awesome that she can use her platform and network to bring attention and help to this organization!

Putting together an avant-garde look for this event was SO much fun!  I just love the drama and and glam of something like this.  It takes me back to my figure skater days and and is an awesome occasion for this mama to get out of her “mom clothes” and into something dressy.

Last month Todd and I attended the Daffodil Ball 2017 in Kelowna hosted at Quails Gate Winery!  This years event asked that guests dress in their finest “Garden Party Attire” as the event was held outdoors in the stunning vineyards.  Clear tents were erected to shield guests from the elements but you still had the feel of the gorgeous setting at Quails Gate.  Everyone really got into the theme and there were many beautiful hats and fascinators!  The Daffodil Ball was a huge success and raised over $250,000 for cancer research which is pretty amazing!

Spring has had a very slow start here in Kelowna.  And I mean a VERY slow start.  A long winter this year has made way for a drawn out rainy/cold season.  I’m hoping this means summer will be equally as long because there is nothing like summer in Kelowna!  To hold us over until that moment arrives is this transitional weather look.  Blush is all the rage these days and I can’t help but be obsessed!  Happy Friday friends!

I’m obsessing over everything “blush” this season and have a feeling I will be wearing this blazer on repeat!  It’s loose structure is casual and effortless but still has a “put together” feel.  I also absolutely LOVE the pickup sleeve detail.  Scroll to the bottom for full outfit details and where to find everything.  Happy Thursday friends!

This elegant and classic jacket has become one of my fast favorites!  Bought at Ann Taylor on Black Friday for 50% off it was definitely a great purchase and one that I will wear for years to come.  The classic lines and style of the jacket will never be out of style.  It’s very “Chanel”!  It also comes in petite sizes which is wonderful for small framed gals.  With narrow shoulders and a shorter jacket and sleeve length it needs absolutely no tailoring.  While this piece appears to be sold out online it seems to available in store in the multi colour I’m wearing and also black.  I’d recommend using the “Find in Store” locator on Ann Taylor’s website to see if it is available near you!

Last month Todd and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary!  This is the outfit I wore for our weeknight date night out.  It has been super cold in Kelowna this winter so this was a great “dress up” option without actually wearing a dress.  The sweater is so cozy and I really love the feminine details of the peplum and bell sleeves.

It’s a New Year and time for some fresh looks!  Spending American Thanksgiving in my hometown of Columbus, Ohio was amazing for many reasons and the shopping was high on the list!  Every time I go there to visit my family (usually twice a year) I tend to go a little nuts in the shopping department.  Kelowna can be difficult when it comes to finding great clothes and accessories.  We are just so limited here.  That being said there are some very cute boutiques that have adorable things!  I just always enjoy shopping in Columbus because they literally have EVERY store right at your fingertips.  Nordstrom, Saks, Express, LOFT, Ann Taylor, Macys, I could go on and on.  The sales have been extra good this season around the holidays so I definitely took advantage of that.  I am a huge fan of mixing high and low end and never having to pay full price for anything (well except maybe those darn handbags!) just by doing a bit of research before buying.  An outfit can look absolutely amazing without costing a fortune on every piece by using great staples such as a nice denim and killer handbag.  Save money by going less expensive with everything else.

Festive LBD

After a brief break from actual blog posts I’m excited to be releasing new content in these upcoming weeks!  My life is so crazy with two little babies, my step children and their activities, the holidays, family and friends and just trying to manage it all!  Christmas is absolutely my favorite time of the year.  I love everything about it and dressing for holiday parties is high on top of my list!  This year we have had a few fun things going on and it’s no secret I like clothes so picking some festive items out has been a blast.  This LBD is so beautiful and totally affordable!  And it also comes in petite sizes which is great for shorties like me.  That way we don’t have to alter it and loose the beautiful detail in the hemline.  Score!  I was lucky enough to purchase this dress on Black Friday for 50% off but I know that LOFT does great sales all the time so you don’t ever have to pay full price!  Adding the pops of RED and statement earrings take it up a notch for the holidays.  I seriously can’t wait for Christmas morning with all the kids!  Maverick doesn’t understand much about it yet but he did just have a Birthday (two on Dec 2!) and he enjoyed opening up presents and getting toys.  It’s fun to relive all the magic through his eyes!
