New: Fashion Fridays

Fashionable business look. Teal Blazer with black and white stripe high waisted skirt.

Oh goodness! What a whirlwind it has been. We decided to put our first home up for sale and boy oh boy, what a lot of work decluttering is! Although, I am excited to share some room reveals and DIY projects I completed to stage and list. Funny how you put so much effort into making your home perfect for someone else to buy but you’ve lived in it contently without your unfinished projects for so long.

So, with that being said, there are ALOT of new things coming to the blog! Of course I’ll always share pieces of my baby stories as that’s what created this in the first place. But I’ll also be sharing my DIY projects (lots of gold spray paint has been used,  gallery walls finished etc), thrift finds, recipes (mostly appetizers as I burn all things sweet) and starting today, I’m introducing my new thing #CastleFashionFridays. Every Friday I’ll be posting about something fashion related. It might a full outfit, a favourite piece, an accessory or maybe even some fashionable guests! This will not only make me committed to at least one post per week, but it will be a lot of fun to concentrate on all things girly.

So for our first Fashion Friday post I share one of my favourite blazers. As a full-time sales professional who is growing a photography business on the side, I love a good fitted blazer. This one is not only super cute in the teal but it is really light! The ruched sleeves add a nice feminine touch (I hate boxy looking blazers). I have paired it with a black and white high waisted pencil skirt from forever 21. The dark tights are only present due to the frigid weather, but I think they add to the darker look (and hide the palest legs you ever did see!).  This blazer is so versatile!  You can wear it to work and social events. Definitely a perfect piece for the upcoming spring season but I admittedly, sport it all year long! The skirt is super stretchy and so comfy. I’ve worn it with a flowy top while out on the town with the girls.

    That blazer is going to transition perfectly into spring, which is hopefully right around the corner. I’m inspired to pair a colourful blazer with a pair of white skinnies, a slouchy tucked-in tee, and some flats for the perfect weekend look while running around town!

    I can’t believe how thrown off I am by seeing you with blond hair again. The brunette hair has been such a stunning change, it seems like you’ve been dark-haired forever. Now – tell us what we all really want to know… Do blonds really have more fun?! 😉

    If you’re looking for some mommy and me style guests, I happen to have a very adorable baby on hand! Heehee!

    I love this look!!! The blazer is definitely very versatile makes me want to get a teal blazer haha! I loved how you kept it simple with classic pieces I think anyone can pull this off! I’m excited to see all of your new and exciting post to come! I think its awesome that you created a series to keep you motivated. Series helps to remind you that “hey I got something to write about” without going crazy! Much success to your new move and photography and blog work!!!
