I have been so MIA lately – so sorry! Joel has been working like crazy which has meant less blogging for me. We are on our way home today back to Calgary… for good! I am so beyond excited. So bear with me as we settle in, I may go missing again for a bit. But please know I appreciate each and every one of you for supporting me and following along. I do post more frequently on my Instagram, so be sure to be following along there!

There’s something about fall that makes you break out all of your plaid hiding in your closet (and for me there’s a whole lot of it). I love me some plaid! This boyfriend plaid button down was no exception – I love the looser fit, and can’t wait to layer it with thick, cozy sweaters for the upcoming months. I paired with my favorite distressed boyfriends – and added some heels because that always spices up any old outfit.

I hope you all had a wonderful week and will take the weekend to sit back, relax and enjoy yourself – I will be unpacking and reorganizing my house! Thanks for reading!

 NIGHT

Shoes: Zara..not available (similar here) | Clutch: Forever21 | Lipstick: MAC “Lady Danger

We all know I love a good jumpsuit – and when I found this one at Target for a steal of a deal, I grabbed it! I have a ton that are great for summer, but I wanted to carry my love for the jumpsuit trend into the fall. I took this jumpsuit and created a day to night look! I kept it simple with a hat, clutch and slides for the day and then added a bold lip, laid back pony tail and strappy nude heels for the night! It was a perfect, easy transition. What are some of your favorite ways to change a look from day to night?

I hope you’re all having a great week, thanks for reading!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are recharged and refreshed to begin a new week!

I wore this look the other night for a dinner date with my hubby (plus the little one of course). We actually have yet to go out without our little Addi.  Being apart from both of our families in the summer makes that tad difficult, so that is one thing we are looking forward to doing once we are home. I am picturing a dinner and a movie date (it’ll be my first movie in a theatre in 6 months!) – although in this moment I get sad thinking of leaving our babe for the first time – it’s so bittersweet!

These faux leather joggers caught my eye and I instantly envisioned wearing so many cute things with them this fall and winter! I threw on this knit relaxed fit t-shirt, some heels, added a statement necklace and bold lip and ran out the door! Sometimes the simple is best, and in this case, it created an ultra chic and edgy look!

On another note, we are officially in the teething zone, and I am officially in the zone of shedding my thanks-to-pregnancy-thick-hair – I may or may not be crying as I write this! I always heard from girlfriends that you start to lose some hair at some point after your baby, most said around three months – so I assumed I was the lucky one who missed that stage – but the joke is on me because here I am.. losing hair left, right and centre. Any of you mama’s have any tips on how you kept some thickness to your hair post baby – or how you prevented it all from falling out? Any advice would be appreciated!

As always,  thanks for reading!

Transition

It is officially September – which means I am in full on fall mode! The weather has changed and you can feel the crispness in the air – I have been pulling out my sweaters, and layering up. This sweater in particular is such a great basic for any wardrobe! I find Noul is so wonderful for its basics and I know I will be finding more gems to wear this fall and winter to layer! This cardigan in particular is so cozy, and the neutral grey tone allows it to be paired with so much. I can’t wait to wear it this winter with some bulky scarves and winter boots. I have been gravitating towards pieces that I can wear to keep warm to transition into fall, so a basic like this cardigan has been on repeat for me!

I hope you’re all enjoying your week! Thanks for reading and supporting LBC, I appreciate it more than you know!

I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend! I moved yet again with my little family, and spent the weekend with my whole family in my dad’s hometown. We enjoyed coffee on the patio, delicious homecooked meals, beautiful walks and gorgeous views. We had bonfires and sing alongs around the fire – it was just the perfect way to end the summer!  It also felt nice to getaway for a little bit before the chaos of another month away from home. Addi has been such a trooper through all of our long drives and the moving. She is such a sweet baby, I feel so lucky! I took these photos of her the day we did another road trip and spent the day loading the car, traveling home, unloading, then unpacking (somewhat) and then repacking for another three weeks. Through this, she sat content on her soft Saranoni blanket, and watched me work away – happy as a clam!

Addi has been cozied up with her Saranoni pink lush blanket – it is so incredibly soft and comfy. I also love how luxurious it feels. If there is one thing that we both enjoy, it is our cuddle time and this is something I hope lasts as long as possible – I envision many cold winter nights with us two snuggled on the couch with this blanket. With this being a toddler-teen blanket, I feel it will last as Addi grows and will be one of her favourites. Head to my instagram to find out how you can win one of these toddler-teen blankets of your choice – I will be choosing two winners on Tuesday, September 9th!

Thanks for reading!

Feeling Fall

Transitioning from summer into fall is one of my favorite times of the year. It has not been too cold yet, but there is a crispness in the air and it makes me want to break out everything “fall”. I decided to start with a color palette that pertains to fall, along with some pieces that will work great now and more into the new season. Burgundy and navy are two staples I have on repeat throughout the fall season! This simple babydoll dress with lace accents went perfect with some ankle booties and a hat. This dress can be worn many ways, such as with tights, a chunky knit and tall boots when it gets cooler, I can’t wait to wear that along with a Pumpkin Spiced Latte in hand!

We have had a busy week around here.. we are currently packing up our rental apartment in Edmonton, and getting ready to move to Saskatoon for the month of September. It is going to be hectic, but I cannot wait until we are back home in our house in Calgary. There is so much to look forward to in this new season! Addi has been doing a little better with her sleep training, but we are most definitely still working on things. I think we will establish a better routine when we are at home in our own house and settled, at least that’s what I am hoping for, fingers crossed!

I hope you’re all having a fantastic week, happy hump day! Thanks for reading.

TWELVElittle

 When it came to diaper bags, I was one picky mama! I wanted everything out of it – functionality and style were key! This TWELVElittle bag is just that and is one of my favourites. I absolutely adore the shape of this tote and how it could pass as a casual purse. I can wear anything with it! I didn’t want to have to sacrifice my outfit on the daily for a bag I feel didn’t match my style. I love that this diaper bag can be carried in so many ways. I can wear it as a hands-free crossbody, as a tote and carried on one shoulder.

It is effortless and has so much storage and functionality. There are so many pockets on the inside that work great for many reasons. I find I like to have a specific pocket for specific items such as baby toy wipes, extra soothers, diaper creams and so on. That way, when I am in a hurry or needing something quickly, I am able to find it instead of digging through an entire bag! It also is waterproof, which is so useful for any bottle spills or if I am out in the rain. Of course it also includes a change pad! As you can tell I absolutely adore this bag and love that it is the perfect combo of a diaper bag and a tote purse!

Sidenote: This “maman poule” sweater is one of my new favs. It means “mummy hen”. émoi émoi is a darling online shop for moms-to-be and has so many cute options. I almost can’t wait to be pregnant again to be able to find some maternity gems. Be sure to check them out!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Thanks for reading.
