Here I am trying to write a post about pom poms and all I can think of is how darn cute Margot is in these pictures. Ah she kills me with how adorable she is. Now, back on topic about pom poms. I am obsessed. I do have a very addictive personality until I get tired of something and then off to the next thing. But pom poms have been on my radar for a while now. I got this pom pom cape when I visited Rochecter and I will admit, I got it off from the kids' section. I couldn't resist. I had to have it. 

Up next, are the cute pom pom clip ons I added on my shoes. I got a box from Pombons and I have been adding this clip ons on everything I can think of. From purses, to shoes, to even on my clothes. A great accessory to have, and also a Canadian product. The pom pom clip ons  come in various colours. I got the Dragonfruit, Cotton Candy and Marshmallow set,  but you can customize your box and add the colours of your choice in your order.

I got this beautiful print Leota dress last month, and then it daunted on me that it is definitely not summer yet. Since I don't want to wait till summer to wear this beauty, I decided to mix it up and dress it for winter. Leota has tons of designs that are appropriate for all seasons and I love the fun prints their collections have, whether they are in their winter or summer collection. There is definitely no rule that says you cannot wear summer prints in winter, but it is essential for you to make it winter weather appropriate. Here are different ways to wear your summer dress in winter. Depending on the print and design of your dress you can choose one or two of the following ways to make your dress look as if it was made to be worn in winter. 

Layer your Dress

Throw on a jacket,cardigan or a fur vest like I did, on top of your dress to break the busy print. Darker colours like grey, black, brown or even something that is beige will work the best when you are wearing prints in winter. 

Wear a Shirt Underneath

If the dress is sleeveless,  I love adding a turtleneck or a white button-down shirt underneath. The perfect way to keep warm and also make your dress winter appropriate. 

Add a Sweater 

Another fun option is wearing a sweater on top of your dress. This instantly turns your look from a one piece to a two piece combo. I would go for an oversized grey or beige knitted sweater. Now you have transformed your dress into a skirt. 

Don't Forget the Tights

Although tights are not necessary, although they are if you want to keep warm, adding tights also helps to transform your summer print to a winter favourite. Because I wore knee high boots, I decided not to. But, if I went with flats instead I would have definitely wore a pair of black or grey tights. 

Shoes

Although not necessary, wearing boots usually adds that winter vibe to your look, but you don't have to. It all depends how busy the pattern of your dress is. Mine screams Palm Springs, so I thought it was necessary to go with a winter style shoe.

This time of the year has all of us in love. Even those that are self-proclaimed Valentine’s Day boycotters, I know deep down inside you love the pink and red palettes that are showcased in every corner when February hits. It is hard to imagine a world without love. As much as we say we don’t need Valentine’s Day to show our love to our loved ones the sad truth is we do. We get so caught up in our daily routines that we forget to show our appreciation every now and then. Time has a funny way of slipping through our fingers. Kamiran and I are guilty of that. Especially since moving in together our lives are even more interconnected, and it is so much easier to fall into a routine where you forget how grateful you are of one another.

That’s why I love Valentine’s Day and finding a reason to dress up. With the help of Ted Baker we found a perfectly fitted suit for Kamiran and the most beautifully designed little black dress (FEIFEI) for me. The top of my dress with its intricate lace embroidery and the most beautiful pleated tulle bottom; this dress has romance written all over it.It is always hard to come up with options of what to wear on Valentine’s day, but Ted Baker is always a good start to your search. You can never go wrong with the suits, and according to Kamiran he has never bought a suit that didn’t need to be fitted, but not this one. It was the perfect fit. So if your man is looking for a hustle free – ready to wear purchase Ted Baker is a safe choice.

We are also slightly obsessed with watches. Time as a concept on its own has played a very important factor in the shaping of our relationship and even us being together. In more ways than I can explain, time is very close to our hearts. So every year Kamiran knows that a watch is coming his way. This year I opted for the  Daniel Wellington Dapper Reading 38mm with rose gold details and a black strap watch. It is hard to tell because of the reflection of the light but I love the watch I picked for Kamiran because of its blue dials. Lightweight like a feather, not flashy whatsoever, with the right amount of luxury and masculinity; I knew I had to get one for myself as well. For myself, I got the Classic Black York 36mm with rose gold details and a dark brown crocodile strap. Matchy-matchy we are, but both watches suit our personalities.

Can't believe the weekend is almost here, and thankfully I have no plans so that means lot's of time for coffee and walks with Margot. If you have a dog or you love walking and are always running around town for errands you know that comfortable shoes are a must. I have never been one to love sneakers. I boycotted them for the longest time, but finally I gave in when I was introduced to Native Shoes. (Also it is a Canadian brand!) Sure, they are sneakers, but there is something effortlessly chic about them. Apart from the fact that their design gets an A in my books, I love how lightweight they are. You honestly have got to try them. I can't even feel them when I am wearing them, which makes long walks enjoyable. It's probably the superfoam insole or the rubber toe and heels inserts. I don't know whatever it is, these shoes have become my favourites for running errands on weekends and walking Margot. I am wearing the Air blue colour but I also love this Dublin Grey toned pair. Did I mention these shoes are vegan! 

Any sneakers you love wearing?
