December…Fabulous Friday’s Linkup is On!

Are we ready for celebrating?? Note to Covid: We’ve learned to adapt and no matter all the darn rules- Nothing’s bringing this lady down the scaredy lonely hole! Decorating is done- shopping is happening- and baking’s on the agenda!

Making my Christmas Eve dinner list and checking it twice. Except….Our Premier announced that Christmas is off. You can only celebrate with those living under your own roof- must have same address. He’s gonna have that policed. In fact, he’s encouraging people to report on those who break the law. Yes. Imagine that it’s come to that. Feeling a lot like dictatorship…

But this still won’t get me down because I have had a worst Christmas before this one. In fact, last Christmas Eve was the saddest it could ever be…I lost my Dad on Christmas Eve morning of 2019. He lived with us. So Covid’s got nothing on me- in fact I’m thankful my dad didn’t have to live a moment in this awfulness. And- I will be dining with my family and will be toasting with a glass of red wine from my Dad’s bottle of home made wine that he was saving for us all to drink together last Christmas, and obviously that never happened. I figured we’d enjoy it as a family this year and reminisce, not the sadness, but all the goodness he brought to this world.

Still, I’m looking forward to Christmas, and preparing for the New Year to come. It wasn’t all bad, I did get one more grandson! We’ve all adapted to the pandemic- even if life has changed in so many ways- we still have much to be thankful for. God has a plan- and that’s always a good thing:)

This week I also started my Fragrance contract work (which I do every year for Christmas time and other special holidays. So I’m enjoying a bit of glitz and glamour and a lot of dressing up in black. It’s very chic I know, but I adore color and prints! Will have to make up for those on my days off. Meanwhile…Here’s to some fun print mixing blouse and vest styled up with some leatherette leggings in aubergine- I love! Dressing up at home- my way!

The little blue velvet booties aren’t bad either. What do you think?

Okay moving right along to My FAVOURITE FASHION DIVA from the Linkup Party: Gail from Is This Mutton!!! Vest or Gilet…Read her post on this to find out!

Garments have different names in the UK and the US.  Is This Mutton explores the differences starting with gilet which is called a vest in the US.  She wears a lollipop pink faux fur gilet from Kettlewell.
Have I ever told you that I am a Vest fanatic??? I am absolutely nuts about this pink gorgeous one!!!

And here’s My FAVOURITE READ from the Linkup : 5 Common Style Mistakes, by Style Yourself Confident This was so interesting!

Common style mistakes #commonstylemistakes #stylemistakes https://www.style-yourself-confident.com/common-style-mistakes.html

And Now- Are You Ready For the Party??!!

Come and Link up Your Posts with me and have a chance to be featured here on my blog- I love featuring my Fashionista Divas!

Fall Scarves: Go Big- Go Gorgeous!

Are you ready for Scarf Styling Weather?

I am! By now you all know how much I love my scarves (I go around building hanging units just for these babies of mine!)- so you know I’m right in my element when the cool weather comes around.

This fall I’m styling up Bellelily scarves and loving how I’m incorporating them in several of my looks- I’ve even transformed one altogether!  These scarves are even better than what they look like online.  I love the quality and softness, as well as the vibrance of the colors.    See here what I mean:

This first look is this incredible plaid pocket wrap shawl scarf !

Next, how delicious is this color block striped tassel pashmina?! It arrived in a gift bag ready for Christmas giving…

Lastly, look at how I styled this winter warm plaid wrap shawl scarf. So many ways to change it up!

The first thing that I noted about these scarves (besides the beautiful warm colors) is the quality. I love that they use 100% wool- making them warm and practical for Canadian winters- but they’re also super soft!

Another important point for me is size.   In my opinion, when it comes to warm scarves; the bigger the better.  And Bellelily is right on point when it comes to this!  That’s what I find so fun about these scarves, because of their softness and how large they are, it makes them so easily transformable into outfits and looks.  So many possibilities.  They’re way more than just a simple accessory.

Winter isn’t even here and I’ve already styled these lovelies more than some of the tops I own!  Imagine what I’ll do when winter coat season comes around.  I’ll be wrapping myself up in chic ways; over the coat completely- around my neck- and as a hoodie as well.  Winter? Bring it on!

If you love these scarves too- Use my Exclusive Coupon: 10% off for order over CAD$52:  BLE10

Check out Bellelily’s All under $9.99, or clearance page as well- you’re bound to find something you love!

FABULOUS FRIDAY’S Link Up Party- Canada Day and a Styling Challenge…

July is finally here- and along with that comes Canada Day!  Such a different one for me, (the cover photo was taken last year in Greece for Canada Day) as I’m living with my daughter to help her out- so no partying! But anyway, who can really party with Covid still lurking.  But! How fun that on my daughter’s quaint street they had mini parades and neighborly cook outs! See the video clip below…

First week of July also started with a Styling Tips post for Northern summers, by your very own Montreal Styling Diva here..You can go check that out here: How Does a Montreal Girl Adapt her Styling to the Summer Season

And, just because styling is my very favourite thing, a fun challenge! Norbyah and Anna started the Trends In Your Closet Challenge– which I’m crazy about! 

A mix of Style and Sustainability, go check out the looks and go ahead and join too! The challenge is on until July 5th.

Have a Great Weekend Everyone!

The Friday FASHIONPHILE: Style Inspiration for Quarant-EASTER!

Even if this holy holiday will be celebrated and spent in a completely different way than what we are used to, it doesn’t mean that we can’t dress up in super duper stylish and fun outfits!

I’ve spent some time perusing some of my favourite blogs and Insta feeds (what else can a girl do with so much time on her hands?!)- and found some amazingly stylish looks that I’m obsessed with. Take a look – see if these inspire you as well!

Let’s begin with a gorgeous jumpsuit! Honestly I’ve never seen a more adorable look or perfect fit. The colours sing to me. Check out this gorgeous ray of sunshine, Andrea, on Instagram at: instagram.com/livingoncloudnine9- or her blog: Living on Cloud Nine


The beautiful and ever-so sweet, Jill can be found at her pretty Instagram feed instagram.com/jmary_likes, where all things pink are loved. Here we see her in an adorable jeans look. She’s dressed it up so perfectly that I think this would make such a glam-casual look for Easter. What do you think?

You want beauty, originality and swag- look no forward than to this creative beauty! Find her on Instagram at: instagram.com/ladysoswag Look at the way she owns her looks. This splash of colour is so inspiring!

I am always in awe at how chic and stylish Suzanne makes everything look- even in her casual ootd’s! How sensational is this dress? Effortless beauty. See more of Suzanne’s gorgeous looks over at her blog Crazy Blonde Life or on instagram.com/crazyblondelife

Beauty plus ecclectic for a look to inspire? Then you must visit this gorgeousness over at: instagram.com/the_refashionista (where old is the new new as she puts it!). You cannot imagine the looks she upcycles and puts together- and what a beauty! Check her out and see how she can inspire your look! A mix of patterns for the holiday- perfect!

Elizabeth is truly a sweetheart and a beauty in every sense of the word. If effervescence is your aim- then go check her site- Fashion thrifting-vintage at its best! Fashionable and wholesome and stylish all the way! /For more inspo see: instagram.con/staygoldengirl

Always something new with Morag- and she makes it so fun! How about a splash of red this Easter (red is so in for spring!). If pants are your thing- how cute is this outfit she styled?! Check out this amazing and creative lady over at: instagram.com/mogzee_m

Love me a great vintage find- and that’s what you’ll get with Annette- she’s totally the expert. Her finds are incredible and you should see how she styles them up. How gorgeous is this dress?? Find more incredible looks over at: A Vintage Splendor and at: instagram.com/vintagesplendor

Ok…so you want original, totally unconventional and incredible looks? Then zoom over to instagram.com/affectionatelyaudrey– where Audrey will mesmorize you! How talented is this young soul? Upcycling and making outfits and jewelry in unimaginable ways; reminiscing the past. Such pretty colours for Easter- just look at these outfits!

Caroline, the brilliant Making it in Manhattan Author, is the meaning of true inspiration itself. This girl can put together magical outfits- honestly this is like right out of fashion fantasy paradise. Outfits in the most delicious palettes you can only dream about- that’s what you’ll be guaranteed on her site Making it in Manhttan and on instagram.com/cvazzana. Who would have thought of this delicious sandals and outfit combination- to die for!!

And here’s another fabulous lady who inspires pure, smooth elegance- Jess from Elegantly Dressed and Stylish-she can also be found at: instagram.com/elegantlydressedandstylish. I love the way she wears this easy flowy yellow beauty!

And then, this adorable fashionista; Samantha of The New York Blonde blog, and at: instagram.com/thenyblonde . This cutie has superb taste and such finesse and poise that she makes any outfit look sparkly and glamorous- stuff fairy-tales are made of. Superbly stylish and always ahead of her game- this girl will always inspire you. I love these looks she’s styling, which I think would be so perfectly pretty for Easter!

The beautiful Kelly dresses up with such flair and ease, you’ll certainly get inspiration from all that she wears. You can find more inspiration by follwing her at 50 Shades of Style, also at: instagram.com/50shadesofstylebykelley– I adore this dress on her! It’s one of my favourites- love it for Easter!

How inspired are you after seeing all these fabulous looks?! These ladies are rocking their style- and I encourage you to find yours! Who says you can’t dress up during Quarantine?

Which was your favourite look?

I love reading other great blog posts- so I thought to include some really good ones for you to check out! They have linkup parties where you can link your own posts. Go check them out and show some love. Have a good one!
