Summer mix and match

I love, love, LOVE summer. After almost six months of snowing, we finally have some nice weather here in Edmonton ūüėČ As you can see, dresses are my favourite fashion staple. However, I like wearing shorts and cardigans too! In fact, I was already hoarding summer clothes back in December! One of the things I bought on boxing day, was a floral wrap-up maxi dress from Forever 21. What I like about this wrap-up dress is that I can wear it in two ways. Today, I’ll be sharing a look, wearing this dress as a cardigan, for casual days and maybe festivals as well.

Happy Hippie (Post engagement shoot)

Today was our engagement shoot and it was so much fun! As much as I love having my photos taken (lol¬†okay so this might really sound too egocentric haha), I find it awkward posing for a professional photographer. Along with the photos, we also had our videographer a while ago to shoot our¬†wedding teaser. We had our shoot at Whyte Ave because it’s one of the hippest part of Edmonton and we wanted to have less rustic themed photos as possible. The shoot ended at 2PM and because it was nice out, I grabbed this opportunity to do a quick OOTD lol. I’ll also share our official engagement photos in the coming days. So if you’ll notice that I’m wearing the same dress, you already know why ;P

The $23 Sporty chic look

Hey guys! I’ve been MIA again for weeks ūüė¶ Been juggling my time between my new job, some wedding preparations, going to the gym and getting power naps in between lol. But hey, it feels so good to be busy! Anyways, I did a quick OOTD a few weeks ago which I am about to share right now. I love this look as it’s perfect for summer. Would you also believe that achieving this look only cost me $23? Ahh, thanks Urban Behaviour!

OOTD: Vintage vibe with Urban Behaviour

If you’ve been reading my blog constantly, especially the fashion section, you already know by now how much I love everything vintage. I even tried incorporating vintage stuff¬†to our upcoming wedding in August (we’ll be having a bohemian vintage inspired wedding and I’m so excited!!!). With regards to my style, on the other hand, it’s actually a mix of everything. But still, I have more vintage and floral dresses on my wardrobe ūüėČ ¬†Today I decided to wear yet another floral dress in nude colours. Nude coloured outfits always look effortless but very stylish. It gave me a vintage vibe, which I love and a little touch of boho too.

The Underground Tap and Grill

My fiance and I¬†rarely go out but when we do, we make sure that we’re going to a place that’s worth our money. We love going to Downtown Edmonton for two reasons. First, my fiance works there and second is because of our favourite restaurant. I am talking about The Underground Tap and Grill. We’ve been to The Underground for countless times already but we never got tired of it. The interior, music, drinks and good food are just a few reasons why we always love to come back.

OOTD: Work outfit

Every fashionista knows that LBD or little black dress is a staple and is definitely a must have. What I like most about this dress is that it’s wearable whatever season and is easily styled. On days that I need to look professional, LBDs are my best bet.¬†The dress can survive on it’s own but depending on my mood, I try to put accessories for more style.

WCW and fashion inspo, Joelle

When I was in high school, I got criticized because of my clothes. As much as I want to wear nice clothes, my insecurities has dominated my style. I’ve always been on the heavy side so I thought my clothing options are limited. Not to mention my financial stability– I was always broke too! Good thing I already get pass through that stage of my life. I’m still on the heavy side, but I don’t let it stop me. I love dressing up and I believe that my weight should not compromise my style. Sadly, I know that some women still have the mindset I had 12 years ago. The good news is, we can always work on our insecurities, all we need is a support group. With that being said, I’d like to introduce to you one of the girls I look up to who will teach us a thing or two about confidence and fashion. Let’s welcome this week’s WCW: Joelle.

OOTD: Red skirt dilemma

Have you ever bought something you really liked it but eventually realize that you don’t? Do you keep it? Or give it to someone else? Or maybe throw it away for good? I recently had this dilemma when I bought a red skirt¬†from Urban Planet. I was excited to try it but I couldn’t match it with any of my tops! Maybe it was also because it was winter that time which made my choices very¬†limited. But now that it’s spring, I¬†finally made use of my red skirt and I’m glad I kept it.

The Craft Beer Market experience

I’ve been hearing good things about the Craft Beer Market but didn’t get the chance to visit the place until last Sunday in our¬†bloggers brunch.¬†When I entered the¬†pub, I immediately noticed how hip it was. The pub’s logo is painted on a brick wall which also serves as their reception area. They also have high ceilings and for someone who appreciates interior design (thanks to Property Brothers! lol), I consider it as one of their assets (besides their craft beer, of course).

Edmonton Bloggers Brunch

I never took blogging seriously until fall of last year. So when I ¬†did, I looked for ways to connect with other bloggers, especially those who are in the city. I got¬†invited to an event back in January but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend.¬†Finally, just last Sunday, I was able to meet passionate bloggers from Edmonton in our bloggers brunch held at the Craft Beer Market. ¬†The event was arranged by Christine Bruckmann, from Just another Edmonton mommy. ¬†She is also the admin of the Bloggers in Edmonton group on Facebook, if I’m not mistaken. This was my first networking and bloggers event so imagine how stoked I was!
