“Do you have the time?

Hello, Realists! I’m back from my long weekend. I’m so busy trying to get ready for our 9-day stay in Toronto, hence the reason why I missed yesterday. Hope you all had a lovely weekend and a great Monday back to reality!

Today I want to talk about one of my many obsessions. Something I rarely ever leave the house with; a watch. A watch to me is almost like underwear (almost! there are times you’ll see me without one, but underwear, I can never do the commando thing!). I’m not going to lie, there are moments where I get lazy in the “accessorizing” department, but I find as long as I have a watch on, it helps pull together an outfit without even needing to try.

The hubby surprised me with 2 more watches from Vegas (Thank you again!!), and I LOVE them!! 2 more pieces I can add to my ever-expanding collection of watches (which you can see below ;)).

How do you guys go about telling time?? Are you  an avid watch-wearer as myself, or would you rather get your time off your phone?? Do tell!

Realists, have a great Tuesday and stay classy!

Graphic Tees

Looking for a new way to spice up your outfits this summer/fall? Something to replace a basic tee? Why not try out one of the hottest trends out there right now; graphic t-shirts. They’re literally popping up everywhere so don’t tell me you don’t know what I’m talking about ;)

We’ve got designers on end putting out their version of the perfect graphic tee. Comme Des Garcons, Maison Martin Margiela, and Burberry, to name a few, have all taken on this course of putting out some fine graphic prints. From shirts with writing, to animals, to just overall crazy prints, whatever you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it. If not, don’t worry, there are plenty of either online shops or pop-up stores that you can print on your own graphics. I for one am all down for this trend. As much as I love a plain tee, ones with pictures or writing always have a way of making your outfit that much more interesting. I love that you can take something so simple like an animal print tee, and make it look perfect and not childish (Aimee from songofstyle does it perfect here!). 

How do you feel about this trend? Have you already jumped on board, or are you still looking into it? I’m definitely planning on getting out there and looking for a few myself. Although, I should really just go through my own closet first because I know for a fact I’ve got a few awesome ones lying around. I’ll make sure to dig them up and do some posts on them! Until then, here are a few styles I’ve chosen that I think would fit perfectly in my closet.

Have a wonderful rest of your Friday, Realists, a beautiful weekend, and stay classy!

Draw-string Shorts


Realists, I’m finally feeling a little more like myself and my coughing attacks are now only coming seldom at night (not that that’s a great thing, but at least I’m not scaring people off during the day). The weather is also finally continuing to feel more and more like summer, which is an added bonus to my feeling better!

As I’ve mentioned previously here, I do love my shorts, and these draw-string shorts are one of my favorites. The material is so soft and comfy, and I love the looseness of them. A great pair of shorts like this looks awesome paired with a tighter, tucked in top, or a looser top as I’m wearing here. We all know how versatility is key, and these shorts fit right in that category!

Guess what? It’s Friday!!! Hope you all have a lovely day and an awesome weekend!! Be safe and stay classy!

White Jeans


White jeans…oh how I hate to love them. They look so clean and crisp the second you put them on, but then you have to cross your fingers (and toes) that they still look as good when you get home later that day. Having kids doesn’t make it any easier, but I say “Screw it! I don’t care” and continue to wear them!

They’re a really good contrast to the blue jean, especially during the spring/summer seasons. And pairing white jeans with anything is great because it always makes your other pieces stand out more. If you’ve yet to give white jeans a try, just do it! One piece of advice, make sure you always carry around a Tide-to-go stick ;)

Happy hump day, Realists! Enjoy the rest of it and stay classy!

Black & Blue


As I’ve mentioned in a previous post here, Monday’s & Tuesday’s I’m usually at my parents house for supper. It’s great because I get to see my family (Tuesday’s are usually when all my siblings round up), the girls get to see their grandparents, aunts and uncle, and I get to lay back a little and watch everyone want to take care of the them ;) (it’s like a mini-vacation every time!)

I may be only going to my parent’s house, but it doesn’t mean that I can’t throw on a pair of heels to compliment my outfit. A simple black tank and some blue shorts. An ensemble that I could’ve easily just ran out with in a pair of flats, but I decided that I was in the mood for some heels.

You’ve seen these heels paired here with some skinnies and a 3/4 top, and now, shorts and a tank! Oh how I love versatility!

Enjoy your day, realists, and stay classy!

Caged Tank


Today I’m posting an outfit I first put together while in Vegas. I really liked the way these 2 pieces complimented each other, and couldn’t wait until it was hot enough here in Montreal to be able to wear this ensemble again. Lucky me, as mentioned yesterday, the heat’s here, which meant it was time to pull them out of my closet!

I love the bright color of the shorts, and they’re the perfect fit. A go-to short for the summer, but the top is really what makes this outfit stand out. I bought this item a few months ago, and as I was scrolling through the clothing on Nastygal, I then came across this particular piece and knew I had to own it.  I’m so into anything with an opened-back, especially when they’re this good. And hey, any reason to not wear a bra, is a good reason, you with me, ladies? ;)

Hope you all have a lovely rest of your Friday and a great weekend! Stay classy, realists!

My pink suede shoes


Mondays & Tuesdays, I usually pick up the girls from daycare and spend supper at my parents’ house. A little thought; when you first move out of the house you grew up in, to go live on your own, most of us want to get as far away from our parents as we can. Trust me, when you have kids, it’s almost the complete opposite. You WANT to be close to parents! Going over there is like a mini vacation.  You could just sit back while they do all the work. Thanks, Mommy & Papa ;)

Now, getting back to where this whole post started. When it’s winter, I almost don’t care what I wear when heading over there. I mean, who’s going to see and judge me? But during the summer, I finally get the chance to pull out all my cute clothes and shoes, so any chance I get to sport them out of the house, I take it!!

This top was a last minute grab while heading to the cash at the DKNY in Woodbury. I didn’t try it on. We were all tired, wet (was raining all day :() and just wanted to get out of there and head back home. I’m so happy I decided to pick it up! One wear, and I’m pretty sure this will now become my go-to tank top. So comfy, love the color, and fits perfect! And these shoes…how can you turn your back on a sweet pair of pink suede shoes with metal heels. The cherry on top? The tiny insert of faux-croc on the heel of the shoe. Love! I thank the hubby for finding these among the many women ripping through the shoe boxes at Neiman Marcus; Last Call.

Realists, hope you all had a lovely start to the week! Remember, when summer’s around, take any opportunity you get to just dress up!
