Something I personally find helpful to do all year is to reevaluate my mind processes and my thoughts. During a drive to town today I caught myself thinking “Why do men make more than women?” Than it hit me. “Who did I buy that from?” “Where and when did I get sold this belief.” So I decided, I decide.
This could be said for anything you think or believe.
Change what you think.
I’d like to add, change what you wear, just for fun!
Please share your eye opener thoughts for 2016….
Happy New Year!
This time of year it is easy to fall in the black trap. We can certainly lighten our mood and feel the warmth of the season by switching up our outer layers with bright colours as well as colours that let us be seen in dark stormy weather, especially here on the wet-coast.
Without being tacky, some festive cloves in bright prints are both warm and practical. So make the prints playful!
Keep dry with umbrellas and hats that are also some unique colour so it easily coordinates with lots of items in your collection.
Mustard, red, tartan, for starters… or this wonderful moss.
Thank you Cloe – it was a great way to start my morning!
You are a wonderful person too.

When cooler weather kicks in we need to be creative with layers and colours.
A fitted warm fleece with a pop of paprika will do the trick!
Include clean lines and handbags or stylish backpack designs with details in the hardware and handles,
plus a blend of colours like this one that will go with almost anything for casual day wear.

Classic cream, beige and black stunning and simple!
Make this look with what you have in your wardrobe.
Heals, black and a skirt would work too.

All purpose leather black purse, you can never go wrong!
Soft edged hat, for day or evening…

Beauty in the fall leaves of Autumn finds a stranger from across the pond
in Ross Bay. The cemetery gardens by the ocean somehow makes a perfect October backdrop!
Our Vancouverite waits for her husband finishing up the Marathon…
Her layers so perfect weekend retreat West Coast wear – how so you ask?
All the pieces are elegant casual with simple, clean and golden / silver accents that are tasteful.
