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.

Denim Shorts

Hello Realists!! Excuse me for my 3-day weekend. Yesterday was a holiday for most here in Montreal, as it was St. Jean Baptiste, so I took advantage of the beautiful weather we had earlier in the day (luckily I made it home before the thunder-showers began) and enjoyed a nice picnic with my girls, sister and uncle.

It’s so nice to wake up in the morning and not have to leave with a sweater on. I can finally stash away all of our winter clothing and make more room for dresses and shorts ;) Speaking of shorts, as I’ve mentioned in a post here, they’re really my go to item for the hot weather. So, seeing as how denim shorts are being seen all over this summer, I’ve put together a little collage of a few shorts I wouldn’t mind adding to my collection.

The great thing about denim shorts is that they can easily be dressed up or down, depending on the event. A killer pair of heels and a dressy top, or some Converse and a muscle tee, they’re so versatile that everyone should own at least one pair! Another great thing about denim shorts? They don’t always have to be the typical blue. Branch out and go shopping for some fun, colorful denim!

How do you feel about denim shorts? Or shorts in general? You know me, I do love to hear your thoughts! Hope you all had a lovely weekend and Monday. Stay Classy!

A Stylist’s Style

DSC04423

Happy Monday! As I mentioned in a previous post, yesterday I had the opportunity to take part in a photo shoot for a couple of friends’ album launch. Like I explained in my “About Me” section, I’m a fashion designer turned stylist. I do still enjoy making clothing at home for myself, children, and close family and friends, but there’s something about being able to dress someone in clothing they wouldn’t normally choose for themselves! I love making people think outside of the box;) I had so much fun on set yesterday, and can’t wait for the next one!

Now, I also brought up about how I would be posting pictures for all of you to see, but as per the musical artists’ requests, I will be post-poning any pictures on set until they have publicized their own first. So, for now, I give you the outfit I wore that day!

A simple, yet still fun, outfit that is not restraining when needing to make sure the boys looked perfect! Yes, it’s those pants again…and the blazer…I know, it looks like I literally only own 1 pair of pants, but these are so comfy and perfect, that I can’t not always find an excuse to pull them out! I swear, I have a vast selection of jeans, I just really like these ;) As for the blazer, same goes with that! I know you all have those favorite items you can’t stop yourself from wearing :P

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, realists. Tomorrow, I will be posting about this beautiful dress I had the pleasure of wearing to my grand-parent’s 50th anniversary, so make sure to check in! And stay classy!

Breakfast date!

SONY DSC

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of enjoying a nice breakfast with a lovely friend of mine. I am a HUGE breakfast fan, and the hubby could really care less for it. So whenever I get the chance to indulge in this wonderful morning meal, without having to make it myself, I take it!

As I was excited in the morning for my yummy breakfast plate (yes, I get quite excited when it comes to food!), the weather was bringing that excitement down. It felt as if it was time for “third winter”! The winds are killer! But did that stop me from looking comfy-chic? Not at all!

I love this top from H&M. Great price (only $15!) and super comfy! I bought 3 different colors and don’t regret them at all! I mean, with a price like that, how could you?? The shoes. Oh, these shoes. How I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them. I snagged these babies at a Neiman Marcus Last Call for a great price!! Last pair, and luckily for me, my exact size! No stretching or insoles needed ;)

I hope that wherever you’re reading this from, it’s much warmer for you than it is for me. If you’re stuck with the same deal, fear not! The weather network says mother nature will be bringing us some heat!…hopefully they get it right this time ;) Stay classy, realists!
