Christmas Party Must-Haves

Christmas party season is fast approaching!! I love all the holiday parties, but sometimes it can be difficult to come up with new looks for each event. That’s why I like to stock my closet with a few unique and multifunctional pieces that can make up different looks.

Use a statement necklace to dress up everything from jeans and a t-shirt to a skirt and sweater combo, casual or formal dresses… the list goes on. It’s worth it to invest in a few quality pieces, and no one does statement necklaces better than J Crew!

It’s no secret: I love gold. Working it into my everyday wardrobe brings me a lot of joy, and with gold being so on trend this fall/winter the options are endless! From lamé to denim – it’s easy to…

Unexpected Layers

One of the best things about cooler weather is getting to play with layers! Living in Calgary, where the weather is known to change on a dime, calls for a seasonless wardrobe in my opinion. So I like to try…
