Mother’s Day with GlamaMama

POSTED April 27th, 2015

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and as a mom…..actually a GlamaMama, I expect to be spoiled extra special that day! And a new outfit for Mother’s Day brunch is a wonderful way to start off the day. I’m currently obsessed with anything floral and this pretty halter dress by BCBG is just right for a patio and sunshine. Pastel colours in baby blues and pale pinks are also on my radar and these fabulous blue strappy high heeled sandals are just the thing with my new dress or dressed down with the perfect pair of jeans. Every mom needs a new purse for the season and this pretty pale pink Coach Mini Carryall will carry me (no pun intended) over for the summer season. This stunning rose-gold watch from Michael Kors would be my one piece of statement jewellery until of course I unwrap my Mother’s Day gifts! A little blue Birks box with this gorgeous Borealis™ Blue Topaz and Pavé Diamond Ring, my signature fragrance Allure by Chanel and my two adorable girls would make for a picture perfect day! Happy Mother’s Day!

Style Statement Tees for Spring

POSTED April 21st, 2015

As the weather warms and we’re beginning to ditch the cocoon coats, thick cardigans and chunky turtlenecks, it’s the perfect time to add spring’s statement tee to your wish list. Flowing trench coats, pastel-hued blazers and sleeveless waistcoats are all the rage this season leaving any patterns or embellishments for the wardrobe staple: the t-shirt. Here’s a round up of some statement tees that are sure to inspire your next outfit:

Spring 2015 Denim Trends

POSTED April 10th, 2015

Denim is one of those fabulous fabrics that we Canadians love to wear year round (Canadian tuxedo anyone??) and this spring is no exception. We thought we’d break down the various ways you can incorporate denim or chambray into your wardrobe picks for the season while keeping in line with the over-arching trends.

1. The Boyfriend Jean
This style of jean has always varied over the years but again – we are definitely straying from the skinny jean for all you trend lovers out there. This pair from the Gap look great paired with a tucked in blouse and chunky heels.

2. The Wide Leg Pant
That’s right, skinny is out and flared is back in. While we wouldn’t suggest ditching your skinnies just yet, we’re loving this sleek option from Banana Republic

3. The Jean Skirt
Perhaps of my favourite trends this season, the jean skirt is back. Look for embellishments, distressed versions or frayed hems for a fun take on a classic trend.

4. The Romper
Another silhouette you can expect to see in different variations this spring and summer, we love the casual effect that chambray brings to this style.

5. The Distressed White Jean
If you didn’t invest in a pair of distressed jeans for the quintessential winter white look this past season, consider grabbing a pair of these for spring and summer.

6. The Shortie
Festival season has officially kicked off and bohemian fashion inspiration can be found everywhere as a result. Consider these distressed shorts a wardrobe staple for spring and summer.
