Dress UpI'll Follow You Anywhere

So I already published the BIGGEST NOLA GUIDE EVER, but believe it or not, there are still a few more posts to come. One of the restaurants in my guide was so special that I figured it was owed an entire post of its own.

Pastel people, meet Brennan’s, one of the pinkest and prettiest places I’ve ever been! I noticed the cotton-candy pink exterior on our first walk through the French Quarter on day one, and without even glancing at the menu I knew we had to go in – it was love at first sight!

A few days later we returned for brunch and explored the space itself, a wonderful collection of whimsical rooms filled with my favourite shades of green, pink and peach. There were hand-painted oyster dishes on the walls, glass lined with drawings of tropical birds, gorgeous tiled tables and a courtyard complete with pink flowers and a turtle fountain! It seemed never ending as I explored room to room, and even the bath room was what dreams are made of.

In my star spangled romper and pink sunnies I couldn’t have felt more at home, and if you love pink, you’ll fit right in too!

I may be the queen of all things pastel, but even I can recognize the importance of a perfect little black dress (aka LBD!)

This piece by Lovers + Friends, one of my favourite brands and makers of the best dresses, is fit for just about any occasion. From day to night and casual to classy, the flouncy cut and adorable back details will have you turning heads from all angles this holiday season. That said it wouldn’t be a holiday look without a bit of sparkle, and that’s where the shoes come in. Studded with delicate crystals, these suede sandals by Raye elevate any look. Most days I pair them with socks and cropped denim, but for December only a dress will do!

Finished with my classic blush pink trench and a delicate pink scarf, this outfit might just be one of my favourites of the season!

I’m usually the first to get excited for the holidays, but I’ve been moving a bit slower this year and suddenly the season is here! Time for peppermint hot cocoa, baking, gift shopping and my personal favourite, holiday parties with sparkling dress codes!

I’ll take any chance I can get to wear a dress, especially in winter, so the holiday party season really bodes well in my books. This look all started with the perfect copper ruffle wrap dress from TOBI, which inspires me to start mixing metallic tones. My hair is currently a subtle shade of rose gold, and I’ve been piling on jewels in shades of pink and pearl thanks to Mai Lin’s beautiful reminder bracelet collection, so accessorizing from there was easy. Velvet and sequin patterned flats from ALDO were a shoe-in, especially when they pair perfectly with their matching purse counterpart, and my favourite black wool coat from Evernew topped the whole thing off.

The past couple weeks have been a rare glimpse of transitional weather here in Toronto – a time when one can wear light jackets and bare legs with thick socks. Though I fear that time has now officially passed, we were able to get out and shoot one of my favourite transitional outfits while the weather allowed.

Suede shoes are one of those temperamental items that must be worn with care, so I’ve been wearing these new baby blue beauties as much as I can before the rain and snow start to fall. My pink Haerfest backpack has also been a mainstay in the accessories department this Autumn – it fits a laptop AND looks super cute with just about everything.

Clothing-wise I love the contradiction of business pieces with casual fun items, so this blush Club Monaco blazer and ruffle top were a perfect match with my new vegan leather skirt by Dynamite (now on super sale for only $20!)

We love any excuse to get outside and get dressed up, so when Lancôme invited us to a rose-filled luncheon to celebrate their newest beauty releases, we couldn’t resist RSVP’ing “Yes please!”

I’d just recieved a perfectly peach dress from Revolve in the mail (the Gigi Wrap Dress to be exact) so my outfit was a no-brainer. Paired with my new Cara Mules by Raye in a deeper shade of peach and my go-to Mansur bucket bag in ballet slipper pink, my main goal was to look like a rose in bloom.

What do you guys think? Too much pink, or yes-way-rosé?
