Navy Blue & Lemons


Yesterday as I was getting ready to go do a little shopping at Costco, I reached into my closet thinking I was pulling out a navy blue tank top I have, but instead, out came this dress! I was a little confused because it’s the exact same color and fabric (plus I’m a little sick, AGAIN! So my brain’s a little off), and had to take a few seconds before I remembered this dress.

I believe I bought this dress a little over a year ago, and am still uncertain on how I feel about it. It’s very comfy, always love a great navy blue piece, I think it’s just how I feel about it on me…hmmm…I still wore it out, but still debating on whether to keep it or offer it to one of my sisters. ;)

We’ve made it to Wednesday! How the days go by. Have a happy hump-day and stay classy!

Wedged Espadrilles


Happy Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

This past Saturday, we went to go visit the hubby’s parents after not seeing them for close to a year. They have a second home in Vietnam and now spend a lot of time there. Since it was a pretty casual outing, I kept my outfit simple with this pair of high-waisted shorts (that are one of my favorites!) coupled with a simple grey tank.

As for footwear, I’m sporting these super comfy wedged espadrilles. If you’re looking for height, as well as that needed comfy factor, wedges are the way to go! Much easier to walk around in than heels because of the one sole. Best part about wedges? No fear of getting stuck in side-walk cracks ;) Also, this summer, espadrilles are trending, so I would definitely suggest snagging yourself a pair!

Enjoy the rest of your Monday, Realists, and stay classy!

Drop-waist Dress


After watching The Great Gatsby yesterday, I felt the need to pull out my one and only drop-waist dress. Oh, how I wish I could’ve lived during the 20’s!

I bought this dress a couple of years ago after snagging it from this crazy sale at Jacob for about $10-$15 (original price, I believe was around $50+). I love the silhouette of a drop-waist because I’m always reminded of the Roaring Twenties. Unfortunately, and I’m not sure why, I actually haven’t worn this dress that often since I first purchased it. I guess watching that movie reminded me of it ;)

I was debating between a few pairs of shoes, and chose to go with these pair of leopard heels with a black bow. Funny because I remember a few years back when I first bought these heels, I thought that they were a nice, high height. Today?? I rarely buy heels lower than 5″. I say the higher, the better ;)

I threw on some pearl bracelets to give it more of that 20’s vibe. And voila, my Gatsby inspired outfit!

Realists, it’s Friday! Have a wonderful day and an awesome weekend. Stay classy!

Muscle Tank; The finale!


Today is the finale of our “DIY muscle tank” outfit combos. We had casual/chic, then I gave you sporty, yesterday was full of clean and sharp details, and today, I give to you something that is pretty much expected of a rocker tee…an everyday, grungish look! Something I would definitely wear to a concert, or just strolling around doing some shopping.

A pair of jean shorts, some black high-knee socks, a striped cardigan, all topped off with the ultimate cherry; a classic pair of black Chucks. Comfy, cute, and can really be worn all day, everyday. This whole outfit makes me feel like a teenager again ;)

And there you have it! The conclusion to this weeks DIY! One shirt, 4 ways. Hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did. Did anyone jump on board with me during this? If so, I would love to hear about how you styled, or would style your own muscle tee! While on this note, I would also love to bring you some more DIY’s in the future! Realists, any suggestions?? I’m very interested to know what you would like to see next! Until the next post, as always, muscle tee or not, stay classy ;)

Another dress, another sweater


This weekend’s Saturday wasn’t a fancy one, so I decided to wear an outfit that was comfortable enough to take care of the kids during the day, but still looked fashionable for a Saturday night with the hubby.

Montreal is finally beginning to feel a little more “springy”. Sun is shining, snow is melting, and more and more people are strolling outdoors. As nice as the weather is, there were some chilling winds that Saturday which kept us staying mostly indoors. We had lunch at Boston Pizza, which was quite good and VERY kid friendly. Then after lunch, we dropped off the girls for their usual sleep over party at yiayia & papou’s (grandma & grandpa). After the girls were dropped off, we decided to go downtown to catch a movie followed by some yummy sushi for dinner.

On my previous post about second winter, I paired a loose sweater over my dress to keep me a little warmer. On Saturday, I went the same route, except this time, with a cardigan. Accompanied by my trusty knee boots. I was warm, comfy, and would like to think I still looked good ;)

How did you spend your weekend? Anything special, or just another day? No matter what you did, I’m sure you were classy as always ;)

P.s. Olympus Has Fallen. Great movie!! Definitely one to check out!! I mean, anything Gerald Butler’s in automatically makes it worth my while :P

Maple on a stick… here we come!!!

Today, I’ll be attending a field trip with the girls and their daycare to a Cabane-à-sucre. Translated literally to sugar-shack. A whole daycare full of kids and maple syrup… this is going to be interesting to say the least… Even then, I still love to attend these outings because 1; I get to keep an eye on my girls, and 2; it’s memories I am fortunate enough to be there for.

Although I could care less for dipping popsicle sticks into snow to pick up maple, or even to indulge in the massive amounts of maple injected food, as a mom, most of what you do is to make your kids happy :)

Now, just because I’ll be surrounded by tons of kids, snow, and lots of, shall I repeat it again, MAPLE!! It doesn’t mean I can’t put together a comfy, versatile outfit, and still look cute! Bring on the festivities!! And now, dear realists, for the first time on the blog, let me introduce to you my two, beautiful baby girls!

Stay classy, realists! ;)
