Olive and Silk.

New colour for fall: Olive! A great accessory colour and also a great new nail polish option that I am most definitely going to try once the leaves start to drop. This olive bag is by Joie and has expandable sides for extra room (needed). Paired here with a sleeveless silk blouse with embroidered detail which is a great layering piece and such a comfortable fabric (also by Joie). As you already know, I do love a giant scarf and this one by Wilfred is huge. My husband opened it up all the way and said ‘are you kidding me?’. It really is comprable to a blanket, but when looped around, tucked in and tied up, it is one versatile piece.  Olive and silk – sounds like the start of a great fall season (or how I’d describe an amazing martini).

Mother’s Day.

Celebrating mother’s day is a special time for me. My husband always spoils me for being a step-mama and we always celebrate again doing something as a family when we are with the boys. Mother’s day always falls right on or between my Dad and Sister’s birthdays so it’s usually an all encompassing celebration. Going for Mother’s Day brunch seems to be a popular tradition and this year was no different. We went a bit formal this year (my husband said, “Am I really wearing the suit I got married in to eat eggs today?”) and I wore my new favourite dress from Marc by Marc Jacobs. It is so comfortable and feminine and I love the low back with the gathered material. I hope that all you mom’s out there (however you define motherhood) were celebrated and loved as you should be.

Navy and red dress: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Famous 5.

Last week I was invited to attend a luncheon celebrating influential women in leadership. The Famous 5 series was held at the Palliser and I was honoured to be included in that room. When trying to decide what to wear, I went for simple and professional (with a pop of colour). I figure you can never go wrong with a classic tailored black blazer.

Black blazer: Talula

Black skinnies: Rag & Bone

Cream silk tank: Club Monaco (I added in a quick pic of the back – check out the yellow zipper detail! Too bad it was covered up.)

Bright blue purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Beige pumps: Nine West
