OOTD 65: Calling All Bell-ievers!

ootd

COAT: WILFRED | FAUX FUR STOLE: PARKHURST | BLOUSE: LOFT | PANTS: LOFT | BOOTS: DOLCE VITA | FLATS: ZARA | PURSE: KATE SPADE | NECKLACE: ZARA

Hope everyone had a great weekend and a manageable Monday!

I spent my weekend celebrating a sister’s birthday (spoiler alert: it ended with Mac & Cheese at 2am oops), getting my butt kicked at a Strong by Zumba class and teaching my young niece and nephews how to ice skate!

I spent Monday hobbling around in heels and sore from the workouts so I changed into my fave Chanel-inspired flats from Zara.

And then I flew through my Tuesday with the help of my bell sleeves. So many feels.

I wish I could show you just how much I love the bell-sleeves trend. Actually,  I think  I just might! Prepare yourselves for tons of bell sleeve envy (probably for the next 4 OOTDs because I only have that many bell-sleeved blouses………..unless shopping………).

I’ll be sure to keep you posted! Peep through the break for a closer look at some of my outfit details, a pic of me skating and maybe a gratuitous selfie with Snapchat filters because follow me: readyorNat (duh).

Shop: Nike Cortez

Nike Classic Cortez Leather Sneakers, $95 CAD

Sure, Stan Smiths had their moment, but rocking my Nike Cortez’ got me feeling like:

bruno-mars

Comfortable, always on trend and, hey, white sneakers are always fun.

Also, if they’re good enough for Bruno and The Hooligans… *adds second pair to online Shopping Cart.*

Who’s with me, blogosphere?  ❤

Today, I really, really missed C (my Prince Charming!). To help me cope, I decided to wear all my fave things (and drink wine). From the fur stole, to the printed cuppa button up shirt, plated tips heels, statement necklace and Mindy Kaling/Project inspired printed Marc Jacobs crossbody bag, Nat survived hump day. Happy First OOTD of 2017 to me. ❤ ❤ ❤

The Best fitbit Charge 2 Bands

We all know that blogging more consistently is one of my New Year’s Resolutions, but it’s time that I share a slightly more pressing resolution: weight loss.

Yes, I’m one of those Resolutioners, but I can explain.

Exercise scares the living daylights out of me. I grew up with very limited athletic ability/inclination, but I have been trying so hard to lead a healthy lifestyle. I’m kicking it into high gear in 2017 in anticipation of my cousin’s wedding in the UK in April, and hoping I can keep it long-term as I prepare for my own walk down the aisle in 2018.

To motivate myself, I’m switching my watch for the fitbit Charge 2 wristband so that I can monitor my progress. So far, it’s encouraged me to keep my stats up and hold myself accountable – a great start, but…

Fashion wise, fitness wristbands are a huge downgrade.

Enter: First world Problem. Can I wear two watches on one arm? Can I get away with my current wristwear game and maybe hide the fitbit on my other wrist, under my blouse sleeves? Will my fitbit work if I wear it on my ankle like a tracker i.e. LiLo on house arrest?

Such a dilemma. I mean, look how pretty my current set up is! Yes, this may seem like a shameless ring and mani pic, but I’m going somewhere with this, I swear.

Choosing between fashion and function is a serious #FWP.

My fashion conscience and office-working, trend-loving self would never forgive me for wearing the basic black band out in public (gym is acceptable), so, after some research, I present my fave official and after-market straps for the fitbit Charge 2. See all the trendy options that I’m considering after the break. You’re welcome. signature

Maybe I’ve been busy, but not much has changed! Except my hair. And my necklace (finally). And I did pick up the tarte palette of my April Must-Haves dreams. 

Is it too late now to say sorry?

For a quick review of the tarte RAINFOREST OF THE SEA WIPEOUT Colour-Correcting Palette, keep reading!

April Must-Haves

The English Nerd in me rejoices every April because I can say: “April is the cruelest month”… And then I look around the room to see who actually understood that reference. (T.S. Elliot’s “The Waste Land” – one of my fave poems!)

April really is the cruelest month because 1) April Showers, 2) I never make it to Coachella and 3) I still ‘like’ ❤ all the Coachella IG pics on my feed like a sucker. Ladies, if you and I are on the same boat…

Cheer yourselves up with my monthly must-haves! 🙂

Confessions of a Springaholic

Spring Buys

Ok, I can explain the logic behind this splurge.

What kind of person would I be if I blogged all about spring cleaning and refreshing essentials, but didn’t follow my own advice? A hypocrite, of course, but with a poor complexion and terribly styled hair. Even. Worse.

I’ve been on and on about how the dry climate in my new city has taken its toll on my skin and hair. I’ve been trying all sorts of different products, but I’ve finally committed to the ones above. For Spring, at least.

To find out what I like about my new Spring picks, keep reading!
