So if you follow me on social media you already know I own a lot of glasses… and I’ll probably keep getting more, because why not?! They’re an accessory I actually need, and wear every day. Having different frames is a great way to switch up my look or add a little pop to a simple outfit (plus they make me look smarter, right?).
Recently I had to pleasure of going into Ollie Quinn in Gastown to get the “Ollie Quinn experience”. As someone who chooses glasses online this was new to me! Like a traditional optical there was a ton of frames to try on, but the environment felt super relaxed and no one was pushing me to buy anything or up-sell me. The staff were so helpful, and even pulled a handful of frames that would suit me!
They have every kind of frame, and the price point is great! After trying on a bunch of glasses (and nearly buying some pretty dramatic ones) I settled on a pair of deep tortoise ones with the prettiest rose gold arm accent called Clemes!
Overall the experience was awesome, and I would highly recommend checking them out next time you’re downtown, or even browse their collection online!

Until next time,
Seeing as spring likes to take its time here in BC, I love anything with layers for this time of year. Cozy + light is the way to go! If you’ve followed along here, or on my Instagram you know that I’m a lover of simple + casual outfits so obviously I fell in love with these pieces from Montrose + George as soon as I saw them!
This outfit would be perfect for the weekend! I would wear it to go to the city or just hangout with my husband around the house! Its casual, and incredibly comfortable (seriously everything is so soft). It’s the perfect combination to transition into the warmer spring days – hopefully they come soon!
I love the look of this long, open front cardigan, it’s buttery soft, lightweight but still incredibly cozy. It also has cuffed sleeves and front pockets which is always a win in my books! This would look great with almost anything under it, but for myself I couldn’t resist pairing it with a crisp white t-shirt.
Then to add a little bit of extra flair I paired the cardigan and t-shirt with these distressed skinny jeans and leopard print slip on sneakers. I love adding a pop of colour or a fun pattern to mix up an otherwise neutral outfit (and I’m a sucker for anything leopard).
In addition to being perfect for day wear, this outfit would be super easy to transition to a date night outfit! Just swap the cardigan for a leather jacket and add some booties + a red lip!
Do dress up, or dress down on the weekend? Let me know in the comments!
Until Next Time,

The weather has finally cooled down, the leaves are changing and, I’ve been to the pumpkin patch three times already. Safe to say fall is in full swing! One of my favourite things about fall is being able to wear cozy clothing and layer on scarves + hats and of course sit at home on a rainy day with the fireplace on. Because I look forward to fall all year I wanted to share my go-to look with you!
I absolutely love the look of a more structured jacket over a cozy sweater, jeans and a pair of sneakers. This outfit is great because its comfortable, easy and looks put together yet effortless (and honestly it is). The neutral tones look great on pretty much everyone and you could always add a fun pop of colour with a handbag or scarf. I would wear this look pretty much anywhere: coffee with a friend, errands, even to work!
I chose my dark grey frames with this look because they’re neutral, but also a little different compared to the typical black frames. The sweater also adds a nice texture to the ensemble – I love the way it looks against the jeans and the softness of the jacket. It also elongates the legs by wearing it tucked into my jeans, and adds more interest to the outfit.

I have been loving the look of shorter, dainty necklaces for a while now, so when I found custom necklaces at Moo & the Bear I was so excited. She made this beautiful monogrammed gold-fill necklace for me and honestly I’ve worn it everyday since I picked it up!
This necklace is 16″ long and made with gold fill, so it’s not irritating at all on my skin! It goes with everything and it layers well with longer pendants. I can see myself wearing this with summer dresses + tanks as well (that is if summer ever comes…). It’s the perfect everyday accessory!
