POSTS IN STYLE & FASHION

Smithery Style

If you have followed me at all you know that the struggle for me is real when it comes to promoting and talking about style.  I mean, almost every day while deep in conversation about my passion for inspiring women to choose the life they want to live it somehow...

Owning Yourself

Last week I talked about my dilemma.  An identity crisis of sorts in which I question if you can be both a soul searcher and a lover of style all wrapped up in one (and when I say "you" - I'm really talking about "me").  Every week while deep in a conversation about...

Life or Style Blogger?

It happens almost every week.  I am deep in conversation with a friend, partner or a mom at the school about my passion for inspiring women to choose the life they want to live and just like that I am suddenly being asked about the "amazing" shoes or jeans that I...

Average or Beautiful?

"A worldwide study by Dove reveals a staggering 96 per cent of women around the world describe themselves as average, leaving just four per cent to admit they consider themselves beautiful." Based on statistics alone that means that almost all of you reading this -...

My Favourite Things This Week

This week was a full one to say the least.  Full of decisions, memories and what my husband and I didn't realize was probably the biggest and most exciting things we have ever done for our kids.  Here are some of my favourite things this week: Pool.  Yep - we did it....

My Summer SALE Picks!

Its the most wonderful time of the year!  Everyone always gets excited about Boxing Day sales - but let me tell you, the sales that are happening RIGHT now are just as good as the ones you wait for on December 26th - you're just not giving them the attention they...

Summer Trends, Style, Fashion & Must Haves

Seasonal "must haves" (lets be honest, the only thing I "must have" is coffee), summer trends and style you just CAN'T live without.  If you are anything like me and see all of the latest and greatest style and fashion trends of the season you are left with an...

My Favourite Things This Week

Summer weather and vibes have officially arrived this week and I couldn't be more ready.  One of my BFF's was due with her first baby (born on Thursday - yay!) which meant she was ready to walk that baby right out of her at Yorkdale last Friday (relax, not literally)....

Love What You Wear, Love How You Feel

I was recently asked to write a Blog Post about "What the Best Style Advice Was That I Ever Got" as a contest entry.  I could have gone in the more traditional route of "bright accessories" or "mixing patterns" but I believe style and fashion is about much more than...

Sometimes You Just Need Jewellery

If you've never been a girl that hoped, wished or even gently suggested (by suggested, I mean emailing my husband the direct online shopping link) a piece of jewellery that you've had your eye on then you should probably stop reading. I love jewellery just as much as...

My Favourite Things This Week

As quickly as summer temperatures arrived this week they were just as quickly replaced with pre-spring weather - sigh!  But for the few days we had a taste of the weather that is to come we took full advantage.  Scooters, Baseball Games, Open-toed sandals and a quick...

Spring Style: Outfits Of The Week

Roundup of this week's "OOTD" (outfit of the day, which for the record I TOTALLY had to google when I first joined Instagram).  I realized through "dressing myself up and posing" this past week that I am all about Functional Fashion.  I love to look and feel my best,...
