There’s something so nice about shopping online shopping. You can do it in your PJs from your bed, everything gets delivered right to your front door, and I find you have a better chance of finding exactly what you’re looking for since the selection seems to be wider, both in styles and sizing! There are so many online shops available too, so it’s easy to find something that suits your style (TobiTobi is one of my faves!). Sometimes looking for clothing can be a little daunting though, so I’m sharing 5 tips for online clothes shopping to help you get what you want!

1. Take your measurements and look at size charts for any items you’re thinking about purchasing. Sizing can run differently from store to store, so make sure your measurements are up to date and consult the size charts (which are usually located right under the size selection) to determine what size will fit you best.

2. Read reviews. Take a look at reviews for both the store that you’re shopping from and the specific item of clothing that you’re looking at. Usually, reviews of the item will give you a better idea of fit and they sometimes include images of customers wearing that piece of clothing.

3. Keep an eye out for deals and coupons. Online stores always seem to have tons of great deals, sales and offers. Many offer discounts right on the front page for signing up for a newsletter or sprinkled throughout the site. Take a look for these or do a quick Google search to see if you can find any. And don’t forget to sign up for eBates! Many stores can be found on here and offer cashback on your purchases. I’ve gotten a ton of money back just from shopping online.

4. Check out the return policy. Of course, even if you look into sizing, there’s always a chance that you might not like the item when you receive it or it might not fit properly. Before you order, take a look into their return policy and whether or not they offer free shipping for returns, just in case!

5. Look into shipping times. This one can be really important, especially if you’re planning on ordering from a store that ships from out of country. These are usually available on the FAQ page and are definitely a good idea to look into if you need your outfit in a hurry.

Hopefully, these tips for online clothes shopping can help make your next order a success. What stores do you like to order from online?

Winter really seems to be dragging on, doesn’t it? We’ve had a pretty cold, snowy season this year and it’s been a little harsh, especially after the past few years which have been a bit lighter on the winter side.

I’m “patiently” waiting for the warmer weather to hit, and in the meantime I’m trying to keep my wardrobe a bit on the lighter, fun side to help me make it through the last push of winter. I’m crushing on pink pieces and sweaters that are lighter but still cozy. Check out my picks for the sweaters from stores like Tobi that will at least help you feel a bit better about making it through the next little bit of cold weater.

Weekends were made for the warm weather. Time spent at the cottage, camping and road tripping means you need to pack smart so you can get going and make the most of our beautiful summers. Get ready to head out with our weekend getaway essentials.

Even though chances are you won’t be wearing a ton of makeup, don’t forget to take it all off (yes, that includes sweat & anything else the elements throw at you) at the end of the day. Klorane Makeup Remover Biodegradable Wipes with Soothing Cornflower ($11) are gentle but leave your skin feeling clean and fresh, so you have no excuse when you don’t have a full washroom at your disposal.

If you’re only heading out for a night or two and don’t want to worry about washing, drying & styling your hair, dry shampoo is a must. Batiste Lotus Dry Shampoo ($9) smells great and leaves your hair feeling clean and refreshed without and heavy residue.

Don’t feel like bringing all of your full-sized products along? Pack your fave shampoos, conditioners and body washes into reusable bottles (like those in the Avon Be Inspired Travel Set, $20) for easy packing and use. When they start to empty out, just top them up and use them for all of your weekend adventures.

When it comes to packing, you want to make sure that you have a bag that’s easy to carry and holds everything you need; bonus points if it looks cute. The Getaway Bag from Poppy & Peonies ($125) is the perfect size for a weekend getaway and comes with a matching cosmetics bag to throw your toiletries in.

Whether you’re spending a couple of hours in a car or lounging around the campfire, weekend wear is all about stylish comfort. You’ll feel great taking a walk on the beach or a hike with a sporty crop top like this one from Hyba ($40 – and I totally went out and bought it as soon as it hit stores!), and the Myria dress ($54) from MEC is perfect for both travel and looking cute when you arrive at your destination.

What do you bring along for weekend getaways during the summer?

After the weather we’ve been having for the past couple of weeks in Toronto, I’m ready to call it a day and move down south. I may still have a few weeks to go until I can spend some time in the sunshine, but I decided to start getting ready early & give you a little warm weather inspo. I recently made a visit to Dixie Outlet Mall to pick up some Spring Break Essentials – let’s check them out!

Of course, when it comes to spring break, spending some quality time on the beach is always key. I love a good pair of jean shorts ($12 – for real – at Boathouse) for wearing to the beach; they’re comfortable and look cute over a bathing suit! A pair of cute shades is always a must-have as well. I managed to score an amazing deal on these heart-shaped sunnies (on sale for $6 at Aldo) that give me major Riverdale vibes.

Of course, a cute bathing suit is basically the uniform of spring break, and I fell in love with this one from Ardene (I picked up the matching set for only $9). It has this retro feel to it that I adore, and has a really great fit. Who knew you could pick up an amazing bathing suit at such a great price?

To finish off my casual daytime wear, I found these fantastic Montego Bay sandals from Payless ($15) that can be worn on the beach or out for drinks later on! The gold and white straps add a really nice feel to these.

When it comes to spring break essentials, I also like to pack a fun nighttime look that’s perfect for dinner along the beach or dancing all night with a margarita in hand. This romantic romper from Winners ($25, compared at $40) was the perfect choice for this; I can’t wait to wear it for drinks at my favourite spot in Costa Rica next month! And of course, the perfect outfit deserves the perfect shoes, so I decided to splurge a little with this gorgeous pair from Call It Spring ($60). They’re really light and the wedge makes them super comfortable, which makes wearing them for a few hours that much more bearable.

I was recently introduced to ça va de soi, a Montreal-based knitwear line. Since 1972, founders Antoine Nasri & Odile Bougain (along with their family) have been bringing luxurious, high quality knits to the fashion scene. With carefully selected fibers from around the world, they’ve created a line of not-so-basic basics that combine the best of quality with comfort, for items that are breathable, long lasting and able to be worn throughout any season. I’ve pulled together some of my favourite items to take you through the summer – and beyond.

1. Cozy up around the campfire with the Debbie 3/4 sleeve Jacquard Sweater. I adore the pattern and this sweater will be sure to keep you warm without getting too hot while sitting around the fire on a gorgeous summer night.

2. You can never be wedding season ready without a fab wrap scarf. The Orane Summer Scarf is beyond soft and perfect for covering up during the ceremony or afterwards when you talk a walk to cool down. This scarf may be a bit of an investment, but the “perfect cotton” it’s made of will never pill, fade or lose its sheen.

3. A great crop top can really survive throughout the year depending on how you pair it, but is especially in style in the summer. This Mireille crop fits perfect with a bit of stretch and a little discreet support for your girls, making it the ultimate beach and festival ready top.

4. There’s nothing worse than heading to the office or a fun night out during the summer looking great and having your clothes become a wrinkled mess after fighting through the heat to get there. This Delfine skirt is form fitting, lightweight and wrinkle-free, so you always look completely put together. I’m obsessed with the crochet detail!
