The Statement Sleeve



Lately, I have really been into very simple yet fun outfits. I have been a little busier than usual, so it's really important that I dress comfortably while looking put together. Enter the statement sleeve. Statement sleeve tops are a wonderful addition to any wardrobe as they can be dressed up or down with the appropriate bottoms. I love pairing a t-shirt style with shorts or denim and a more structured top with white denim, dress pants or a skirt. 

There are endless ways to style the statement sleeve and today I'm rounding up some of my favourite pieces. Give this fun trend a try for the summer!

Mother's Day Gift Ideas



Mother's Day is in less than two weeks, which is plenty of time to find the perfect gift. I think Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to treat your mom with something that she would otherwise not purchase for herself. The sky is the limit when it comes to Mother's Day and today I'm rounding up the best gifts for your mom! I didn't have a clue what to get my mom, and she didn't know what she wanted either. I was browsing a mall - with no intention of shopping - when I saw something that I knew she would love. Sometimes the best gifts jump out at you and sometimes you need a little bit of help. This gift guide is a great place to start if you fall into the second category. From luxury to low end, I made sure to include a variety of items at different price points to satisfy any budget.

Spring Stripes with Joe Fresh

Spring weather has finally started to show up - which means I can start putting my warm weather clothes to use. I think I switched my closet over way too early, considering just a couple weeks ago there was a huge ice storm that shut down the city. This week, the temperature is supposed to cross twenty degrees, which is a perfect opportunity to wear this combo!





When it's warm - I love wearing white. It feels very crisp and fresh for the weather and the colour also reflects heat which prevents overheating on super hot days. I love that this isn't a basic white top - the back has a super fun stripe detail that I love! It definitely lives up to the saying 'business in the front, a party in the back'. Overall, it's a super lightweight shirt that would also work well with shorts.







For this outfit, I paired the top with jeans because it's still a bit chilly out. It's so hard to find well fitting jeans for short legs like mine. This pair has a short inseam and it makes a huge difference in the fit!
