Happy Friday eve! Can you believe that it's almost October?! We have been having extreme heat alerts and advisories where I live, so its felt nothing like fall. Last fall season, the bomber jacket was seen everywhere and was definitely a fall staple piece. I love this Reitmans bomber, the pattern and colours are beautiful and are a great transition piece into fall. I paired the bomber with a simple t and distressed jeans and my favourite pair of black booties. I would also suggest wearing this bomber with a pair of joggers and sneakers for a more casual look.

I haven’t posted in a hot minute…gosh time flies..I have been MIA as I went back to work after my 1 year maternity leave and these past couple of weeks have been crazy busy. I am back blogging and I couldn’t be more excited to share Ricki’s September Campaign that I am thrilled to be a part of!
This month Ricki’s is launching their campaign with a focus on their Instant Smooth pants. I know as a teacher and my own experiences and also from conversations with colleagues and friends, that there is always a major struggle to find that perfect workwear pant. They either bunch, ride up, are uncomfortable or its just hard to find that ‘perfect pair’. When Ricki’s approached me to post about their Instant Smooth pants, I wanted to of course know a little more about these pants that everyone seems to love. I am so glad that I did because I think they’re fabulous too!
What’s great about the Instant Smooth pants is that they feature a hidden shaper panel designed to help smooth your midsection. It’s not designed to suck you in, it’s just really comfy! I was really impressed when I picked out my own pair of Instant Smooth Pants…think Yoga pants. They were fashionable, workwear appropriate and oh so comfortable. Check, check and check!
I selected black, but there are many other colours, styles and pant cuts. Ricki’s currently has nine styles online and more will be arriving within the next few weeks. Right now Ricki’s has an event going on in store, is if you head to a Ricki’s store from now until September 25 and try on a pair of Instant Smooth pants, you receive 25% of your purchase (whether you buy the pants or not). AH-MAZING!
I decided to pair my fab Instant Smooth Pants with this gorgeous royal blue ruffled blouse and this long black sweater from Ricki’s. The royal is such a lovely colour that pops and amps up just a boring black workwear look. If you love this workwear look and these Instant Smooth Pants as much as I do, head to your local Ricki’s or hit up their website!
Thanks for reading and happy shopping!

Can you believe that summer is almost over?! It has definitely flown by, sadly the end of summer means my son starts JK, my daughter starts daycare and I go back to work. I am going to miss spending so much time with both of my love bugs.
Earlier in the summer, I posted about the struggle to find the perfect Maxi dress. I had luck again and found this beautiful one from Winners. I am always picky about prints that I wear, and I just LOVE this one. The combination of the different blues and white is so pretty. This was most definitely a #winnersfabfind and also a great transitional piece between seasons. Thanks for reading and enjoy this last full week of summer!

Gosh, its been a hot minute since I've posted. July was such a crazy month- both of my babes had their birthdays, my husband and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary and I got everything back to school for my son who is starting JK in September (tears). I cannot believe that we are already in August, the summer will soon be over and my maternity leave will of come to an end. While its still gorgeous outside, I wanted to share this simple, and elegant summer look that can also easily transition into fall.
These black and white Reitmans printed soft woven pants are not only chic, but are a great transitional piece to fall. Oh..they are also currently on sale! I paired them with this fabulous white lace up tank (also on sale) and a simple pair of black pumps. What I love about both pieces is that they can be mixed and matched with different colours, and you can add a Moto jacket and booties for a fall look. Guys,Reitmans is killing the fashion game. If you haven't been, you seriously need to head to one of their stores. I was sent their Fall Look book and its TDF.

I am dedicating a separate post (I wore this romper in our family photos here ) to this very requested and coveted romper! I think I have been asked more times through social media, my Blog & email where I got this romper more than any other clothing item that I have posted.
It's funny because I actually purchased this romper as my mom and I were looking for outfits at Marshalls for my dad, husband and brother to wear to our family photo shoot and I spotted this and loved it. I love the colour, the off the shoulder trend and of course the delicate crochet lace detail. Definitely a #lovemarshalls moment for me. I also saw this romper at Winners as well. I don't think you can find it any longer (although you may be lucky), but stay tuned for some other amazing Marshalls/Winners Fab Finds!

I hope that everyone had a fantastic Canada Day & 4th of July!
My daughter has been pretty sick, fever, ear infection etc, so we have had a lot of sleepless nights, but she seems to slowly getting better. My poor little pudding pop...
Now that summer is in full swing, I am sharing this super easy summer look. As a momma, I am always looking for something that's quick to throw on (don't have to iron), easy, comfortable and of course cute. What I really love about this Reitmans dress is it's versatility. I have paired it with these Nine West heels, but I would also suggest pairing it with a pair of flats, gladiators, sneakers or even a pair of booties. This dress would definitely be a great transitional piece from summer to fall. Stripes are always in, and you can never go wrong with Black & White, the perfect neutrals!

Doesn’t this romper make you wish you were on a tropical island?
I love me a good romper and this one from Reitmans is no exception. The pattern and colours are gorgeous and it fits beautifully, not to mention the softness of the material. If you’re looking to spice up your boring black romper, I would definitely add this beauty to your collection. I love how versatile it is, it can be dressed up with a pair of heels or down with a pair of flats. Perfect for a daytime or evening out!

Happy Monday everyone!
We just got back from our vacation to Florida, and let me tell you I need another vacation lol. We had great weather and a lovely time! Does anyone else hate unpacking more than anything?! The struggle is so real for me...the worst!
Now that I am back, I am sharing one of my favourite looks that I wore last week before we left. If you've been following FLM for a while, you probably know that I have a certain style and colours that I love to wear. One combo that I am obsessed with in the summer is blue & white. There is something so fresh, chic, clean and crisp about it. This top from Reitmans, I LOVE. Not only is it super cute, but it's t-shirt material so its really soft and comfortable. I loved it so much that I also purchased it in white!
Reitmans has so many awesome summer pieces online and in stores right now! I am going to be sharing some more coming soon!
Thanks for reading!

Although some products have been given to me for review, all opinions are always my own.
Every summer I have been in search of the perfect Maxi dress...unfortunately, I haven't really had much success, until now. This Reitmans Maxi Dress is not only beautiful, I love the colour combination, its so fresh and screams summer! Most importantly, it is so light weight and comfortable and perfect for a warm summer day. If you've been searching for the perfect Maxi, your search is over, run to Reitmans and get this one!

The Basic Momiform....if you haven't heard of this term... then let me enlighten you. First, the Urban Dictionary defines the "Momiform" as an outfit worn by a 30 something mom that has lost all sense of style...heck no! Whoever came up with that definition is definitely not a 30 something stylish momma, let me tell you haha.
Before I had my kids, for some crazy reason I could wear uncomortable pieces of clothing for pretty long periods of time. This includes uncomfortable shoes. What was I thinking?! To me a momiform is an outfit (worn by a mom) that is fashionable, stylish and oh so comfortable. The perfect outfit for chasing your babes around...
For me this usually includes a loose fitting t, a pair of lululemon leggings/jeans and my converse, New Balance or Nikes...this look features one of my momiform looks, white distressed denim (don't wear these all that often...white gets dirty), a grey Lululemon t and my New Balance sneakers.
I was thinking of starting a momiform series....let me know what you think and what you'd like to see more of on FLM!
