Wedding Ceremony Attire

SONY DSC

Good morning/evening, Realists!! We meet again! I hope you all had as lovely a weekend as I did and are ready to commence a new week.

This past Saturday, a good friend of mine got married to her best friend, and I couldn’t be happier for the lovely couple. It was a memorable day that started out by watching the two lovebirds become officially husband and wife. Weddings always get me all choked up.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you’ve probably noticed that I hardly ever wear necklaces. This little metal collar necklace has been sitting in my drawer of jewelry for close to two months now. Every time I would try to pair it with an outfit, I always felt like it just wasn’t looking the way I thought it would. Once again, I tried it on, and I LOVED it! I had to have been crazy the other times I’ve tried it and thought it just was never going to work. I think it’s time for me to pick up my necklace game and continue to search for a few new standout pieces. Realists, how do you feel about your necklace collection? More simple, or more statement? Maybe just not at all? Comment below, I love to know how you feel about this jewelry piece.

Now it’s back to the grind, everyone! Enjoy your Monday and stay classy.

Birthday Supper

SONY DSC

Hello fellow Realists! Hoping you all had a splendid weekend and getting back to the real world yesterday wasn’t too hard for you :)

This past Sunday was my birthday (woohoo), but since the hubby was out of town, he took me out for a nice supper this past Thursday. After wanting to take me to this restaurant for a while now, he made reservations at Le Filet, an outstanding restaurant that really lived up to everything I’ve heard. Honestly, if you came up to me and told me that this would be my last supper, I’d be cool with it! I would then proceed with licking my plates clean, because frankly, if it wasn’t such a classy place, I would’ve probably done that on Thursday ;) We’ve eaten at some great restaurants throughout the years, but the food here was really top notch, and the service? Excellent! You really do get what you pay for.

As for the outfit, I knew I had to pull out the floral shirt I once wore here (paired with shorts and floral heels), and it definitely had to be paired with my much loved leopard heels. Mixing prints is always fun, and leopard is being considered a neutral because of the abundance of prints it can be paired with. You can never go wrong with a little leopard in your life ;)

I’m off to continue with my fall cleaning!! Have a great Tuesday, Realists, and stay classy!

SONY DSCI finally bought an ear cuff! I’ve been wanting one for a while now, and after coming across this one, I knew I had to have it! I don’t really wear earrings anymore, except for the ones you always see there, so an ear cuff is the perfect accessory. They really add a lot of character to an outfit.

A Week of Style; Satin Cargo Trousers – Day 3

DSC01127

As my uncle put it, today’s way of styling our satin cargo trousers would be a “night on the town” look. You’ve got the leopard print heels, the red clutch, a silk blue top, and some sparkly sunglasses.

I actually am quite fond of this look. It’s feminine with that touch of edge from the trousers. This is something I would wear out to a nice supper or drinks with the ladies.

I have a confession. I’ve had this top for yeeeaaarrrrssss, and I think I can count on one hand the amount of times I’ve worn it… Horrible!! I’m not a huge fan of turtle-necks (I’m quite claustrophobic so I’m usually turned off by them), but I think because this is silk, it deterred me away from that closed up feeling. After seeing how it looked paired with these pants, I’m going to be looking for more bottoms I could pair it with. Make sure I get my money’s worth :P Are you guys fans of turtle-necks? Do tell!

Once again, we’ve made it the middle of the week. How time flies! Have a wonderful hump-day and stay classy!

A Casual Supper

SONY DSCSONY DSC

Yesterday, my family and I went out to have supper. Nothing fancy, just a simple Chinese restaurant (Tong Por, if ever you’re in Saint-Laurent and are a fan of Chinese cuisine, quite tasty! Check it out!). Now, just because there was no need to dress up, doesn’t mean that I couldn’t pull out a pair of my favorite heels!

Yes, I did wear heels, but the rest of my outfit was kept very simple with a plain white tank, and boyfriend jeans. I was eyeing these heels since I first saw them at the Louboutin store, and you can only imagine how I felt when I came across them at the Neiman Marcus; Last Call in San Francisco. Crazy price, last one, and my size!! Needless to say, the husband didn’t try to put up much of a fight after seeing the price and they came straight home with me ;)

Heels, a little lipstick, some jewelry. Such an easy way to make a classic tee + jean combo that much more interesting! A go-to outfit that can be special every time :)

With the weather being a bit chilly in Montreal, I thought that this was the perfect go-to outfit! Hopefully wherever you’re reading this from, the weather is a bit nicer than ours! Stay classy realists!

My favorite new top

002

Ever since getting pregnant with my first daughter about 4 years ago, and then after she was born, having my second daughter exactly 18 months later, I really wasn’t in any shape (pun intended) or mood to even want to think about shopping, let alone actually going through with it! Which is quite a surprise considering I LOVE clothing, shoes, accessories  etc. Now that the youngest is 2, I’ve been working very hard to get my body back, if not better! I recently looked at my wardrobe and thought “Damn, I need an update”. After finding this top in Vegas, I knew that it was the perfect addition to my updated wardrobe.

Loose tops, tights tops, there’s a time and place for both, but I feel like more recently, I’m drawn to the loose, long look. Looking at this top, you can see why I fell hard for it. It’s perfection from the color, to the fit, to the oh-so soft fabric. Can be paired with skinnies (as I did here), would look super cute with shorts, and can also be pulled off with a looser type of pant, just have to make sure they fit together!

On another note, I’ll be leaving for New York on Thursday (this time, just the hubby & I), and this is actually only my 2nd time there!! We’re super stoked to be having a mini-vacation by ourselves. Any suggestions out there on what we must do/see/eat?? We’re looking forward to eating mostly food trucks and DDD spots. Would love to hear any suggestions!! Stay classy, realists!

p.s. I’ve still yet to fix my camera, which means photos are continuing to being taken with my iPhone, but bear with me! A new lens will come soon, hopefully ;)

004 008 I love that the style is to be buttoned to the top, but I’ve also worn it opened which looks just as good!019 My first amazing purchase from a previous trip to Vegas :)011 025 027Top: Ted Baker, Pants: Vero Moda, Shoes: Christian Louboutin, Sunglasses: Aldo, Bracelet: Forever21, Ring: BCBG
