Casual Sunday









Top - Vero Moda via The Clothes Mine || Jeans - Yoga Jeans || Boots - Hunter || Necklack - Beck & Boosh || Watch - Michael Kors

Sundays in our house are always so relaxing.  We have a nice easy morning, go to church and then in the afternoon usually curl up and watch a movie or go outside and play.  This past sunday the temperatures were so nice and warm we went public skating and then made a snowman while our little man slept.  Laid back Sunday's are always my favorite.  And with relaxing comes comfortable clothes.  The top I am wearing is from The Clothes Mine here in Saint John.  It is a second hand store with many items that still have tags attached!  When I purchased this piece a couple of weeks ago I didn't realize how quickly this simple striped shirt would become a staple in my wardrobe.  Basics such as this shirt look great with jeans, dress pants or tucked into a skirt!  What are some of your basics and favorite Sunday activities?

Summer, please?





Dress - c/o Milliemeno || Necklace - Giant Tiger || Shoes - Nine West || Watch - Michael Kors

Can we just go back to summer now please?  As the second snow storm this week goes on outside, I just wanted to share with you a look from last summer that I didn't get a chance to share on the blog.  I am totally in love with this dress and I want to say a huge thank you to Milliemeno and Rebecca of Winnipeg Style for this adorable dress that I won in her instagram giveaway last year.  This dress got some major wear last year and will again this summer, but first does someone want to come shovel my driveway?

Heart Fun






Jacket - Dex || Tee - Heart Fun || Jeans - Black Orchid Denim || Booties - c/o Sole Society || Necklace - Stella & Dot

How adorable is this heart fun tee?  Even more awesome is that all proceeds are donated to great causes.  These shirts were created by 7 year old Kaiya.  She has a youtube channel and her mission is to spread love and joy to everyone.  Be sure to check out her videos which document her journey to spread kindess.  She is the sweetest little girl!  Ten percent of all proceeds from the sale of these shirts go to non-profits that promote inclusion.  I am wearing a youth medium above, now my daughter wants to wear it.  Stay tuned for how she styled it.

Plus can I just say how in love I am with this moto-jacket from Ella.  I can't believe that I never had one before this.  I have worn it with jeans and over dresses to work.   A very versatile piece to add to your closet.  Looking forward to stopping by Ella tomorrow.  Enjoy your weekend!

Too Long








Top - Tees by Tina via Baubles || Skirt - c/o eShakti || Clutch - Manchester Shoe Salon || Necklace - Stella & Dot || Earrings - Beck & Boosh || Shoes - Old Navy || Watch - Michael Kors

Happy 2017!  I am so happy to finally be back with a blog post.  It has been way too long.  Finishing up my masters has completely taken over everything but in the spring I will be back full force.  Only one more course to go!  So for now, I will post when I can but I am super excited to be back blogging more regularly.  You can always follow along on instagram (@sighgushgasp) for more frequent posts.

Today I am so happy to be showing you this skirt from eShakti.  They are a great website that allows you to customize your clothing - length, sleeve style, etc.  I personally love them because it allows me to make sure my skirt lengths are just right and that everything fits perfectly!  This skirt is now going to be on regular rotation in my closet, totally in love with it!  Plus it has pockets, enough said. 

Here are a few of my favorites from their site:
-  Have you seen their simple, yet so perfect, boat neck knit top?  So verstaile and could be worn through all seasons.  Could I have one in every colour, please?
- eShakti now makes jeans!  For a tall girl like me this is a dream come true!  I can now order jeans that have a long enough inseam.  I am loving these skinny jeans in indigo.
-And how cute is this asymmetrical hem dress?  Great for work and will take you from winter to spring!

Goodbye Summer






Dress - Pink Stitch || Necklace - J.Crew via EBay || Shoes - Sole Society || Sunnies - Maui Jim || Watch - Michael Kors

This time of year starts to mark the end of summer.  The temps start dropping and back to school shopping is in full force.  I love summer so much but it is always so short.  This dress (which I purchased last summer) has been amazing!  It is so great for those warm days (which we have had a lot of this summer, yay!) and is the perfect combination of pulled together and comfy.  So with the long weekend upon us - goodbye summer, until next time....

Glamour Secrets: Give & Take



From now until September 23rd Glamour Secrets is hosting its 10th annual give and  take hair appliance trade in event.  All used hair appliances that are donated will benefit local women's charities and shelters.  You can bring in your gently used hair appliances (curling irons, flat irons, hair dryers, etc.) to any Trade Secret/Glamour Secret location in Canada.  To thank you for your donation, you can take 50% off select hair appliances in store.  It doesn't matter what you trade in, for example if you bring in a used curling iron, you do not have to buy a curling iron, you can buy a flat iron if you want.  Here are a few of the hair appliances you can purchase during this event:






I think this campaign is an amazing way to give back.  I was so happy to be able to stop by Glamour Secrets in Champlain Place in Moncton last week.  I donated two curling irons that I no longer use and purchased a new flat iron as mine had stopped working.  


This campaign is all about women helping women.  The Dieppe location is hoping to double the amount of hair appliances they donate to women's shelters this year.  

"Year after year our clients tell us how much they love the cause.  Many have appliances in drawers at home they haven't used for a while," explains Clinton Davis, co-owner of Glamour Secrets Dieppe.  "Even clients who don't necessarily need new appliances still come and donate their used ones."

It was such a pleasure to meet Saly and Clinton Davis, the owners of Glamour Secrets Dieppe.   They have a wonderful location with lovely staff.  Also, while you are there making a donation don't forget to stock up on any hair essentials or to book your next salon appointment as they offer full salon services.  



Thank you to Glamour Secrets Dieppe for having me!  I can't wait to come back next time I am in Moncton.  And if you are in the Moncton area, be sure to stop by with your donations!

LORDON


Last week uptown Saint John saw a wonderful new addition open up.  Lordon opened in the former Birks location.  This boutique replaces Silver Daisy that was located on King Street.  This posh boutique is a must stop for any fashionista.  And it's safe to say I want one of everything in store!





Not only do they carry beautiful clothes but they also now have a bit of lingerie and a small selection
of lotions and creams.  Every little detail of this store is perfection!  





How gorgeous are those watches?!?!?


Congrats to Kate and her team on this wonderful addition to the uptown!  I can't wait to go back to shop!  Stop by next time you are uptown!  Be sure to tag your photos of your purchases with #ohmylordon.  Happy shopping!
