Camo & Red

SONY DSC

Wow, it’s been awhile I’ve been off! I’ve been so busy this past week, it’s nice to be back in the game! Hope you all didn’t miss me too much ;)

Yesterday was Labour Day, (yay to long weekends!) so we took the opportunity of a day off to spend some time downtown followed by taking the girls to their first movie at the movie theatre. How happy they were :)

It’s now September, which unfortunately means summer’s coming to an end :( On the plus side, we get to now start putting together fall outfits which are always fun! As much as I love 25+ degree weather, I love dressing for fall. Booties and scarves, blazers and colorful tights, so many amazing fall pieces to play around with. My outfit here isn’t “fall-fall” per see, but it’s a transition for me with the pants (I try to never wear pants during the summer).

I love camo and red, something about this print and color combo that always makes me happy, so I obviously had to pair my camo jeans with some red heels. Tie it all together with a simple white tee, and you’ve got a great ensemble that can be pulled off without even trying.

Realists, I hope you all had a lovely week, and if you had the day off yesterday, I hope you took advantage of it ;) Stay Classy!

Belts & Sunnies

I can’t help it. I’m such a typical mom when it comes to taking pictures of my girls and wanting to show them off. As hard as I try not to, because, you know, those people can get a little “too much” with it, I couldn’t not take any pictures yesterday to post about them today.

Once again, I had nothing to do with whatever fashion choices they made that day. It’s all whatever their little brains wanted them to put together, Mardi Gras beads and all. They’re clearly too cool for daycare ;)

Seriously, as much as we all complain that the weekends always come to an end and we have to begin all over again on Monday, days go by so fast!! It’s Wednesday already! Happy hump day, and stay classy!

Flowers & Sparkles

SONY DSC

Yesterday, after the girls were finished getting ready for daycare, I just stopped, looked at them, and thought “And I didn’t help you all today!” They both decided that they didn’t need my say in what they were going to wear for that day. As I mentioned in my 1st post about their style here, there are times where I’ll dress them up, but then, there are times like yesterday, where they’re too old to hear anything from me. They’re amazing in so many ways, and fashion knowledge is one of them :P

Wednesday’s here once again! Have a happy hump day and stay classy!

P.s. Apologies for the subtle blurriness. Kids don’t stand still very well :P

My Little Fashionistas

SONY DSC

Hello, Realists! Hope you’re all doing/feeling better than I am. I’ve been feeling a little under-the-weather these past few days, hence the reason why I wasn’t around yesterday. I’m still not in any shape to want to take pictures, so I figured it’s a great moment for me to start a new category on the blog called ‘Stylish Little Ones’.

As much as I try to put my little girls’ outfits together in the morning, for the most part, I somehow get tossed to the side while they scramble through looking for the perfect outfit. There are definitely times where I look at them and say “Oh, yes, so cute, but maybe this top would look better?” And then there are those other moments, which let me tell you, come quite often, where I just look at them and think “Wow! You really are your mother’s daughter!” Today being one of those days.

I don’t like to tell them what they “should” wear, but like any parent who’s into fashion, I do like to explain why some items don’t work with others. On this morning, I personally found they nailed it! I mean, I’m their mom, I think they would look beautiful in a burlap sack. So, rather than put you guys through torture and have to see me with red, puffy, eyes, and probably be able to hear me cough through the pictures, here’s my little ones in their OOTD ;)

Have a lovely day, Realists, and stay classy!

P.s. As you’ll see on the older one, she’s completely decked out in Joe Fresh. One of my favorite places to shop for children. Such cute clothing at reasonable prices! If you’ve yet to check it out, please do yourself a favour and go! :)

Camo & Stripes

SONY DSC

Ok, I’m convinced mother nature is bi-polar…Monday, I’m wearing shorts and a tank, and yesterday, back to jeans and a cardigan. So far, summer hasn’t been consistent around here, so I’m just crossing my fingers that the nicer weather that’s coming today, will be staying with us!

Because of the rain outside, I opted for taking pictures indoors. As for the outfit, I was in a camo kind of mood, and to spice it up a little, I paired these jeans with a striped cardigan. I also thought I’d go for something a little different by wearing this beanie I received as a gift quite a while ago. Honestly (and I’d like to apologize to my sister for this), I don’t think I’ve ever really worn this hat before…but I’m happy I finally decided to break it out!! It adds a little subtle interest to an overall casual outfit.

Have a lovely rest of your day, Realists, and join me in crossing our fingers for warmer weather! Stay classy!

Muscle Tank; Casual / Chic

SONY DSC

“Rain, rain, go away! Come again…” never?? ;) The weather is warming up in Montreal. Spring is finally creeping up on us! Which, sadly, does bring us days of rain. Just because the day’s a little on the gloomy side, doesn’t stop me from bringing you outfit #1 of my DIY muscle tee!

Today, I wanted to bring you a casual/chic outfit that can really be worn on so many occasions. Movies, lunch, dinner, and even drinks with the girls. Casual enough to not be too dressy, but still has that pop with the extra high, skinny heels (love a great single-sole heel! No pain, no gain ;))!

Instead of pairing this all with a simple pair of jeans, I just bought these awesome camo pants and knew that they were perfect for this outfit! Camouflage print is showing up everywhere this season, and rightfully so! It’s a chic looking pair of pants with an added touch of ruggedness. Topped off with a faux-leather bomber. Outfit #1!

Make sure to check in tomorrow for outfit #2! Will I be going for an everyday ensemble, or something a little more dressy? You’ll soon find out! Until tomorrow, stay classy, realists!

SONY DSCLove these Gap jeans! They never seem to fit right, so I was stoked to put these on & have a perfect fit!SONY DSCWhat do you guys think of my new hair??

Oh, Reddit…!

Yesterday, my oh-so-lovely husband decided to be funny and post a not-so-flattering picture of me on Reddit. The picture was one of the unchosen ones from my Sunday’s outfit for my daughter’s birthday. Now, while the picture of me is not the best angle, or anything for that matter, he decided to post it because it looked like I had alien antenna’s on my head. Not thinking he would get much traffic from it, the comments started pouring in! Positive comments? Quite the contrary…

Most of the comments were of random redditors saying that from the angle the picture was taken, I look like Skrillex… Now, at first, I must admit I was a little confused, until I studied the picture a little more. Skrillex indeed! Quite hilarious, actually, but hey! You can’t look perfect 24/7 ;) What I found most interesting, is that one of the users actually recognized me! Says we went to the same elementary school! The curiosity is killing me! If you read my blog, please let me know who you are! :)

You can view how it all went down here. I hope that if anybody who has commented on that post, has made their way to my blog and can see for themselves that I am most definitely NOT related to Skrillex ;)

As always, stay classy realists, and redditors ;)

And now, the infamous “Antennae’s meets Skrillex” picture!

A 2-year old’s birthday, part two! ;)

SONY DSCAs mentioned in yesterday’s post, we always have two separate birthday parties for the girls. Saturday’s outfit was more of a fun, cute, and flirty kind of look with the skater skirt and tights.

For Sunday’s look, since it was family, I decided to go a little more conservative. Nevertheless, it is as easy to run around in, cooking, cleaning, and chasing after the girls, as yesterdays outfit. My grand-parents are enamoured with the way I dress now, compared to my teenage years. Well, I guess to them, anything is better than black, on black, with some extra black, throw in TWO arms-full of spiked bracelets (but still today, I do add my own personal flare!). I must upload a picture for you realists one day soon!!

‘Till that day comes, stay classy realists! ;)
