THE PERFECT BLAZER FOR SPRING

IMG_4950

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope everyone had an incredible weekend and St. Patty’s Day! I just stayed in and worked most of the weekend, to be honest. Lately I’ve preferred to stay in with Zelda (my new puppy) on the weekends. She still has to get one more shot before I can start taking her to public places (which she is getting on Friday). So playing, training, and spending time with her is one of my top priorities right now!

However, I did get out to do a quick photoshoot with this AMAZING pink blazer! The moment I saw this blazer, I fell in love. As most of you know, I’m OBSESSED with pink, so this was a jaw dropper for me. It’s by Bardot and I ordered mine from Nordstrom, however they sold out almost immediately. They do still have a couple available at Revolve, which I’ll link here. I love how unique it is. It’s definitely not a piece that you see on a regular basis. It’s very comfortable, and it fits true to size. I’m wearing a medium.

The jeans I’m wearing are by Hudson, and they’re available here, at Bigley Shoes & Clothing. 80% of my jeans are by Hudson. Although they’re a bit of an investment piece, they fit like a glove and are incredibly comfortable.

The shoes I’m wearing are by Hispinita. They’re also from Bigley Shoes & Clothing. They’re currently only available in store but will be available online very soon.

6 OF MY FAVORITE SPRING SHOES FROM BIGLEY’S

HEY GUYS!

Long time no talk! If you follow my blog Instagram stories (dollysdressingroom) you’re probably aware that the last couple months have been a little crazy (I’ll explain details in a later post). However, as promised, I’m going to commit to two blog posts a week, starting today!

With spring just around the corner, I figured I would start by sharing a few of my favorite spring shoes!

Bigley’s selection of shoes right now is AMAZING. I recently did a little spring “shopping spree” myself, and it was so hard to narrow down what I wanted. Although I wasn’t able to purchase all of these, they’re definitely all on my list of must-haves!

Here are six of my favorite spring shoes from Bigley’s:

IMG_4648

1. FRANCO SARTO- VELLEZ PUMP

It  doesn’t get much more chic then this. I love how these Franco Sarto heels are sophisticated, yet trendy at the same time (blush is still a major trend this season). The heel is a very low block heel, which makes them comfortable and easy to walk in. This is a great spring shoe to wear to the office, a conference, brunch with the girls, or meetings with clients.

2. SOLUDOS- CIAO BELLA PLATFORM SMOKING SLIPPER

Soludos is a new brand at Bigley’s, that they just started carrying this season. However, Soludos seem to be up and coming everywhere at the moment. They’re chic, cute, and casual. This is one of my favorite pairs, but there are numerous styles to choose from. They’re great to slip on with a pair of jeans and cute shirt, or denim shorts and a tank. I also think they’re a great gift idea! Possibly for your bridesmaids (if you’re engaged), your mom for Mother’s Day, or maybe your bestie for her Birthday.

3. FERGALICIOUS- RATTLE BOOTIE

Can you tell that I’m still on the blush bandwagon?! Pink has always been my favorite color, meaning this trend will never get old to me! But how cute are these booties?! They’re by FERGALICIOUS, and the price point isn’t bad ($100). If you follow bigleyshoesbobcaygeon on Instagram, you’ve probably heard me talk about these numerous times. I love the cut out detail, and the block heel makes them easy to walk in. I own these and love them! Perfect for date-night. They’re also available in Black. The peep toe detail on these booties would create total ‘boho-chic’ vibes with a flowy maxi dress, or cropped trendy jeans.

4. JESSICA SIMPSON- CRIZMA SANDALS

These sandals are the definition of pineapple perfection! They’re tropical, sweet, and make a HUGE statement. You could wear a very simple outfit such as denim shorts or denim cropped jeans with a white tee, and pop the look with these sandals. They would also look cute with a flowy maxi dress. They’re definitely a perfect statement sandal for spring and summer!

5. VINCE CAMUTO- KOLISSA

These Vince Camuto shoes were one of the first pair of new arrivals that caught my eye. I love how they’re sweet, simple, and sophisticated. The flexible slingback strap makes them easy to put on and take off, and the low heel makes them practical to walk in. They’re very versatile, in the sense that they can easily been dressed up or down. You could simply wear them with jeans and a tee, or you could wear them out for a night on the town with a little cocktail dress. Definitely one of my favs this spring!

6. CLARKS- TEADALE RHEA SNEAKERS

Platform sneakers are very on trend right now, combine that with blush and the stitched rand detail, and you have yourself the PERFECT sneaker for spring. I love these sneakers because the platform is slight and the styling is minimal. They’re comfortable and easy to walk in, yet have just the right amount of style and trend.

 

 

Cozy and Stylish Outfit of the Day

9756B2B5-7EBC-4E62-9D48-616CCFD3A30F

Today was the first day that the temperature really dropped, here in Bobcaygeon. Once again, we’re coming up to that transition period between fall and winter. Putting together outfits around this time can sometimes be a little tricky. Especially if you still want to look stylish, but stay warm at the same time (without wearing a full on winter coat). That’s one of the reasons I love this look.

This jacket is so insanely warm and cozy, it blew me away! It’s soooo soft, it almost feels like you’re walking around in a cozy bathrobe lol. It’s by BB Dakota, and one of my fav items at the moment. When I had it on today, I received SO many compliments on it. Again, if you haven’t already noticed, I LOVE neutral pieces. I wore a burgundy top under it, to go with my boots. However, you could pretty much rock any colour you wanted with it.

The boots I’m wearing are by Michael Kors. They’re actually the exact same as the taupe ones I wore in this post here. The only difference is these ones have a small block heel on them. If you want more info on them, check out this blog post. It will give you more deets.

The purse I’m carrying is actually by Celine Dion. Celine Dion just recently launched her handbag line, and all of them are STUNNING. I love the gold detail on it, I feel like it really makes this look pop. Find more Celine Dion bags here.

Camo Fever

IMG_7211

I don’t know about you guys, but I have major camo fever this fall! I mean, my fiancé is on deployment in Afghanistan right now, so I’m sure that’s adding to my obsession with camo, LOL! But in all seriousness, I can’t stop wearing this camo coat!

This camo coat is by Dex and as soon as it arrived at Bigley’s, I went berserk! I had pretty much hit my budget in terms of clothing for the season, but I just could. not. resist! It’s also only $79.99, which pretty much made my decision for me. Most of the time I wear it with this cute little cable knit sweater underneath (also by Dex). It’s the perfect weight for fall. It’s not too heavy, but when the temperature drops at night, it still keeps you warm enough. I even wore this look to my fam’s Thanksgiving dinner, this past weekend. I decided to cuff the sweaters sleeves over top, just to give it that extra punch!

You could wear almost any pair of jeans with this look. I’ve rotated between black jeans, dark blue jeans, and the pair that I’m wearing.

I find camel (brown, chestnut, whatever you want to call it) accessories , look great with this look too! It adds some richness to the outfit.

Casual Yet Edgy Look For Fall

edgy blog post 1

Fall has officially started. However, here in Bobcaygeon the weather is giving us mixed signals. One day it’s hot like July, and other days it’s freezing like January. This look is perfect for those days when you just don’t know what to expect, when it comes to the weather. If it’s cooler you have the cardigan to keep you warm, and if it warms up you can just drop the cardi.

Bigley’s has been receiving new arrivals on the daily, and now that I’m back to work full-time, it’s hard to keep my hands off of all the new goodies. I was trying this dress and sweater on the other day, and I loved how comfortable it was. But I wanted to find a cute pair of shoes for it, in order to give it a little bit more sass. Needless to say, these amazing booties were exactly what I was looking for.

These booties are by Gerry Weber, a new brand Bigley’s just started carrying this season. I’ve been wearing them to work all day long, and they’re extremely comfortable. I love how they add the perfect amount of edginess to the look. They can be worn with rolled up jeans and a cute shirt, or with a cute little dress like I’m wearing here. They’re definitely a go-to bootie for me this fall and winter season.

The dress and cardigan I’m wearing are by BB Dakota. Both these items are sooooooo comfortable! I literally feel like I’m in pajamas at work. The dress is also super cute on its on. It’s a tank style top (no sleeves). This cardigan is also a perfect go-to basic for fall and winter. It’s easy to throw on with leggings and high boots, or just over top of a t-shirt and jeans. There’s so many different ways you can wear it, it’s a piece you can’t go wrong with.

To top off the look I threw on this cute little hat, which is available at Bigley’s Beach House.

Adorable Off-the-shoulder Dress

IMG_3541

I’m pretty sure 90% of the blog posts I’ve done this summer have consisted of dresses, but I can’t help it! Dresses have literally been allll I’ve been wearing lately! However, I’ve been showing you guys my absolute favourites, and I have to add this one to the list!

This dress is by the same designer as a couple of the recent dresses I’ve wrote about- Parker. I wasn’t kidding when I said I stalked up on Parker dresses. They’ve definitely played a major part in my summer wardrobe.

I love how Parker dresses are super stylish and trendy, yet youthful at the same time. They always add so much detail to each garment. This one in particular has the ruffle detail at the top, and black embroidery throughout the top and bottom. The white pin-stripe also makes it a classic.

Here’s the most exciting part of this whole blog post- PARKER IS CURRENTLY 50% OFF AT BIGLEY’S!! How could you possibly go wrong?!

The hat I’m wearing is available at Bigleys Beach House, and is currently 10% off. It’s such a cute touch. The shoes I’m wearing are by Michael Kors. There’s only a few sizes left, however they’re currently 30% off at Bigleys, and they also come in a cognac colour.

The Sweetest Little White Dress

IMG_2848

I recently went on another little shopping spree at Bigley’s. I realized that out of everything I was trying on, I kept falling in love with Parker dresses. Which actually worked out in my favour, considering they’re 40% off right now. When I tried on this dress in particular, I knew I HAD to have it.

I love the detail in this dress. The embroidery around the neckline and the embroidery throughout the dress, make it such a stunning piece. The cold shoulders, ruffle sleeves and bottom also make it super trendy for summer.

Normally I would wear a pair of wedges with this dress, such as these. However, when I took these pictures I was actually working at the Beach House. The Michael Kors sandals I’m wearing are my go-to sandals for work, considering they provide total comfort throughout a whole day of being on your feet.

The sunglasses I’m wearing are also from Bigleys. They have SO many chic and stylish sunnies this season, and they just top off any look.
