Wedding Reception Attire

SONY DSC

Yesterday I showed you what I wore to my friend’s wedding ceremony here, and today, the reception.

You can’t go wrong with a maxi dress. Unless, of course, you’re wearing a white maxi dress. Well, then again, please don’t ever wear white to a wedding. Or cream, or very light peach. I always say steer clear of anything that can even remotely be considered a bridal dress :P

Let’s also take a moment to step back and see yet another statement necklace featured around my neck. I wasn’t lying when I said I was going to pick up my necklace game. I fell in love with this piece at a BCBG sale, and have never regretted it. Unfortunately, the necklace broke on me at one point, but luckily for my handy crazy glue skills, it looks like nothing has ever happened.

Have a great day, and stay classy!

Running Errands in a Striped Maxi

SONY DSC

Happy Monday, Realists! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. We spent it…inside. Both days indoors. The weather this weekend was far from “let’s spend the day outside” type of weather. Cold, rainy, and just overall gloomy. So we opted to just have some quality time at home all together :)

Not going out = no outfits. No outfits = no posts. No posts = no good. Don’t worry, I’ll make it work! ;) Not the first time I’ve done this. I have some errands to run today, so I figured I would snap some pictures, come back in, write a quick post, and then continue about my day.

A maxi dress. That perfect piece of clothing that allows you to be comfy and stylish all at the same time. They’re so versatile, have so many styles, and can really be worn at pretty much almost any occasion. Bold prints, stripes, solids, a maxi dress comes in so many personalities. And depending on how you style it, your whole ensemble can completely change. You can pair them with sneakers for a more sporty, casual vibe. Sandals for a cute and everyday look. Or heels for a classy, going out for a nice supper look. Oh, the possibilities!

I opted for a striped maxi with some comfy sandals. Easy to run around in, all the while still looking chic. I topped it all off with a straw fedora.

Now I’m off! Hope you’ll have a wonderful Monday, and stay classy!

The Remaining of NY Summed Up

Back in good ol’ Montreal…where the weather right now is a little rainy, but looks like it’ll get better by the weekend! Lucky for us, the day we left New York, the weather there was also gloomy and raining, which was fine since our previous days were quite sunny and nice.

There are only so many pictures, but let me tell you, we did have a great time! I haven’t walked so much in quite a while, so it felt nice to just be able to do that (even though our legs were KILLING by the next day :P). As I mentioned in my last post what we were planning on doing, we spent a good amount of our Saturday strolling through the MET. The exhibit I wanted to see most was the Punk: From Chaos to Couture. What an exhibit! The fashions that were displayed were phenomenal and it was so exciting to see all these different designers’ outfits. Such art! If you’re in the area, or are heading there soon, go check it out! It’s really something, along with the many other exhibits going on there, that shouldn’t be missed!

Now that my vacation fun is over (Vegas & New York), expect daily posts coming your way! I’m hoping to incorporate some other types of posts (i.e. recipes, fitness, diy, etc) so if any of you have any suggestions on what you would like to read, throw them my way! Like I always mention, I love to hear your thoughts! Until next time, stay classy realists ;)

Vegas Flight Attire

Vegas! Woohoo! So excited to be in this energetic, and hot, city! This is not my first time here, nor my last, but it’s my first time spending it with only girls! (This will get interesting ;)) So, as promised, I will keep up with my posting ( I know I missed yesterday’s, but it was quite hectic!), and here’s my first outfit/story that started in Montreal, and ended in Vegas!

The past few times that I’ve flown for more than an hour, I’ve always worn the typical flight ensemble; tights, a tee, and a sweater for when it gets chilly. I already am not a huge fan of flying, so getting dressed up for it was never thought of, until this flight! Now, I didn’t “dress up”, but I did settle on wearing this simple, black, maxi dress, accompanied by my trusty turquoise blazer.

This maxi dress is perfect in the sense that it cost me, drumroll, $13!!! As I was strolling through the mall the other day, preparing for the photo shoot I just took part in, I strolled past none other than Sirens and saw this dress hanging there with the price card “$13”. I haven’t walked into a Sirens in yeeeaaaaaars, but I thought “What’s the shame in trying it?” Good thing I did!! Fits perfect, love a racer-back and v-neck anything, and it’s comfy! Score!

First day was just mostly us hanging poolside, so not many pictures to show, but I will definitely be bringing you some! Keep reading, and stay classy!

P.s. These pictures are not the best, please forgive me, but they will get better! I’ll make sure to get somewhere (outside ;)) with better lighting! :)

Grand-parents’ 50th anniversary

DSC04500

This past Saturday was a big deal for our family. It was my grand-parents’ 50th anniversary! 50 years together. I think “Wow!”, and then I remember “Oh right, I’m married too and will be making that mark one day as well…” This August is my 5th anniversary (woohoo!) Another 45 years to go ;)

To help celebrate this wonderful occasion, we all decided to throw them a surprise party at this awesome Greek restaurant called Mythos. My grand-parents are as Greek as they come, so to know that they would enjoy eating/dancing here was a given!

Now, any reason for me to dress up is a good reason, although  I like to believe that you don’t really “need” a reason, per se. So, with the weather really warming up in Montreal, I had the pleasure of pulling out this beautiful maxi dress that I’m absolutely in love with. Everything from the colors, to the way it fits, down to the draped fabric on the right side. Also, for this special occasion, I felt that it was a perfect time to pull out my wedding shoes. I try to wear these sexy babies as often as I can!

On another note, I’ll be leaving for Sin City tomorrow. Yes, Las Vegas, baby! I’m so excited for this trip because I’ll be spending it with some of my cousins, and I’ve yet to go to Vegas with only girls. I’ll be sure to continue with my posts, so make sure to tune in and read all about my vacation in Vegas!

You don’t need me to remind you, stay classy, realists!
