Pattern Play

First my big news - I am a member of Yorkdale Mall's (the best mall in Canada) Style Council. To say that I am excited, honoured, happy, pinch me I'm still dreaming doesn't describe how I'm feeling. I will be blogging for Yorkdale Mall and here is my introduction.

For those who have visited my blog you know that my "style" weakness is prints and print mixing. I'm not a big print fan so it's not a stretch that I'm not that great at print mixing. Well my friend Jane at Toronto Shopaholic is pushing me out of my comfort zone and here's to more prints in my future. She's hosting a print mixing blog hop that I'm part of.

Nancy from Cocoa Jewelry sent me these wrap bracelets in yellow, light blue (think Tiffany's) and cream. I am obsessed with them and am wearing them with everything.

The handbag is another one of my favourite from Danier. I was recently at an event at Yorkdale and was constantly asked about the bag. Everyone's first thought was Valentino and looks of shock and awe followed when I said Danier. An affordable LEATHER handbag that is trendy, stylish and accessible. Danier is stepping up their accessories game and I say RUN don't walk to your nearest Danier.

Blazer & Skinnies, The Gap. Top, J Crew (old). Shoes, Jimmy Choo. Purse, Danier. Sunglasses, c/o Jeanne Beker. Bracelets, c/o Cocoa Jewelry (Mocha Line). 

I look miserable in these pictures and I'm not. Not sure what happened.

I'm also linking up with YOLO Monday blog hop here. Enjoy seeing what a new group of bloggers are doing.


  1. I think it looks great! The anchor and stripe keeps everything nautical and totally works ;) Bravo for pushing yourself to try something different (isn't that part of what this whole style blogging thing is about?!)

  2. Love this look! Classy with a touch of Memorial Day fun!

  3. FABuoous outfit~ so inspiring!

  4. Congrats!!!! You look great!

  5. Love these icy colors on a fresh summer day, great top!

  6. Looking amazing dear! Love the vest

  7. Love your stripes vs the nautical print. Sweet!

    Now can you tell dear Yorkdale to bring back "Long Tall Sally"? I can't get down to mid-Toronto and I detest online shopping!


  8. Congratulations on that.
    Well this is honesty one of the best print mixes I have seen, loving it, loving the whole outfit.
    Clutch is totally gorgeous.
