I am loving this seasons’ straw bags. The crossbody, the bucket bag, the tote, all the shapes and colours. So cute. I want them all. But since I can’t have them all, and really don’t need them all, I am sharing with you. Someone should have them.
Here are some of my favourite bags, all under $100.
Half Moon Crossbody. Banana Republic.
This one is a little more pricey, but Banana Republic does go on sale for 40% off, so keep an eye out.

The shirtdress has become a wardrobe staple for me. Not only is it comfortable and flattering but it’s a really versatile piece. And because of its versatility its also a great piece to pack. I have been trying to become a more efficient packer (still a work in progress) so I am always on the hunt for pieces that can be worn multiple ways. To say that I am overpacker is an understatement. Anyhow, back to the shirt dress….
Here are three different ways to style your shirtdress. Plus I have included some of my favourite spring shirtdresses if you are looking to add one to your wardrobe.
One: Add a Belt
I typically replace the self tie fabric belt that comes with the shirtdress with a belt I already have. I love the look of a chunky leather belt paired with neutral mules for a more casual look. And you can see how a simple belt switch changes the look – the red belt totally dresses it up especially if you add a pair of a heels.

The shirtdress is a wardrobe staple for me in the spring/summer. If I’m not wearing denim shorts on the weekend, you can find me in a shirtdress. It’s so easy to wear and it’s versatile. Sure you can wear it on its own, but you can also belt it, add a jacket or wear it open as a flowy layer.
Shop my favourite shirtdresses for spring/summer below. Most under $50 and a few under $100.

So I may have a bit of an obsession with sunglasses. I have more than 20 pairs sitting at my front entrance way (must find a good way to organize). And they aren’t all new. Some of them are 5+ years old. For me they are like finding the right pair of shoes for an outfit, they really help complete the look. So I like options. Which is why I never spend more than $30 on a pair. In fact usually they are less than $20.
So if you are on the hunt for a new pair of sunnies, or two, here are a few of my favourite pairs with links to shop. I broke the list out into three categories: cat eye, round frame and statement.

This season there are so many tees with feminine details like ruffles, frills, knots, embroidery, beading, fringe………. ♥ ♥ ♥
And since I am at home alot I tend to live in tees. And basics are fine but they can tend to get a little boring. Just because you are at home doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with fashion. I love a good ruffle hem tee like this one I picked up from Winners for only $35. Its such a flattering shape, looks great with denim and can totally be dressed up for the office. I also love pairing my ruffle tees with a flowy vest or kimono.
Here are a few of my favourite feminine tees. As usual, all under $50.

Here are a couple looks I put together for these shoes. All the items are under $50 and can be shopped online (free shipping with min spend and free returns).
Look 1: Dressed Up Denim
Not only does the low block heel make these shoes super wearable, but they are also really versatile. They are a little unexpected with denim but I love the look. They look great with a pair of distressed girlfriend jeans too.
1. Distressed Denim Cut-offs. American Eagle.
2. Black and White Bow Top. Zara.
3. Black Heart Sunnies. Aldo.
4. Half Moon Tote. Zara
5. Pointed Cap Toe Block Heels. Zara.
Look 2: Office Chic
These shoes make me miss my office job. And they are comfortable enough that you don’t need to take an extra pair of walking shoes with you in your handbag to do a lunch run. These shoes are sort of prim and proper so I like the rest of the outfit to be a little more edgy.
1. Paper Bag Waist Cropped Trousers. TopShop at The Bay.
2. Twist Detail Tee. Zara ($10)
3. Layered Necklace. Aldo (only $!5).
4. Raffia Crossbody Bag. Zara.
5. Pointed Cap Toe Block Heels. Zara.
I don’t usually get excited about bags to be honest. Or at least I haven’t in a few years. I think it’s because I got too caught up in being all practical – needing a bag to fit EVERYTHING I might possible need for myself and my kid. But this Spring there are just way too many cute bags to be practical.
All of a sudden I find myself obsessed with bags. Mini cross body, straw totes, geometric shapes, bright colours, pom poms, Love them all. However, they aren’t going to fit everything I may, or may not, need in a day. But I have decided that’s okay. I can stash a diaper bag in the car just in case and carry a super cute bag for myself.
Here are a few of my favourite bags right now. And as always they are pretty affordable, most of them are less than $50.
