Studded Jean Jacket and Other Pumped Up Basics

Forever21 Jean Jacket, AE tank top, black leggings, nine west gold flats, summer basics
I love this studded jean jacket! Comfy clothes are a must have when running errands or spending the day walking through a new city discovering it’s hidden treasures. This casual outfit is functional, weather appropriate (yes mom, I brought a jacket!) and oh-so comfortable.

Birdface Rebrand

As you may have noticed, I took some time to re-brand the site as well as my social media handles. I am moving away from Birdface into a name that is more symbolic as to what this blog is: a personal style blog of a working mama in the city! 

Quebec City Mini Vacay

hot topic tank leather leggings checkered Vans

Quebec City is a place that most Toronto school kids visit between grades 6 and 8. The main area is best navigated on foot so comfortable shoes (like my classicVans!) and leggings were a must! This breezy tank top was also necessary for the mild heatwave they were having.
There is so much history and even the landscape makes you daydream how things must have been a couple hundred years ago. 

The Big Apple Colborne - Light Sweater with Chiffon Detail

Light Sweater Chiffon Top Handle Handbag Gold Flats Leggings

Sometimes doing something nostalgic stirs up childlike excitement and breathes new life into the otherwise mundane musings of life. After a long drive home from Quebec City, I begged Tom to stop at The Big Apple off of the highway. As luck would have it, we also needed gas so he really couldn’t afford to not make the pit stop!  

Leopard Print Blouse with Black Jeans=Lazy Mornings

Leopard Print Blouse, Black Jean, mules

Mornings have always been hard for me. Luckily I married a saint that wakes up early and takes Taylor to daycare to give me an extra 30 minutes to sleep in. Even with this extra time, I still try to pick out my outfits beforehand. This leopard print blouse and black skinny jean combo is a go to.

Distillery District Romance in a Backless Blue DressLazy Mornings

Backless Blue Dress, studded belt, pumps
I can't get enough of this backless, ruffled, light blue cocktail dress! Sometimes a girl needs to spend an evening dancing the night away feeling pretty, amiright?! Luckily, I had the pleasure of attending a gorgeous wedding this past weekend for my cousin (now cousins!). We celebrated their love and nuptials in the Distillery District, one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city!

Leather Jacket, Dark Florals, Happy (half) New Year!

Floral Dress, Leather Jacket, Bucket Bag, Pumps

September will always feel like a fresh start for me. It’s like I’ve been programmed by the school year to get organized, reinvent my wardrobe, connect with old friends and set personal goals for myself. With the chill in this morning’s (and some of last week’s) air, I started dreaming of chunky sweaters and Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I jumped at the chance to don my leather coat! I also can't get enough of dark floral dresses with opaque tights.
