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.

My Winter Outerwear Staples

632E4F19-63BF-4A4A-BE36-B33254894F3F

Well, the winter season is officially in full force. Especially here in Canada. This look has been my go-to look lately.

This coat is by J Crew. I love having a statement coat that I can wear on a daily basis, that is stylish but still keeps me warm. This coat comes in numerous different colours, but I’m a huge fan of this blush colour. I’ve mentioned before that this colour is very on trend right now. However, I’m a pink lover whether it’s trending or not! I also love the gold detail, and the pockets and hood make it very practical. Although J Crew coats tend to be a little pricey, they will last for years.

Hunter boots have been trending for numerous years now, and there’s a reason for it. Not only are they super practical, considering they’re 100% waterproof, they’ve also become a fashion statement. They’re also great for EVERY season. In the winter, I line mine with the Hunter boot socks in order to make them a little warmer. Personally, I like the tall black gloss, because they’re so versatile and can be worn with so many different looks. They’re always one of my go-to boots.

My boots, hat, and leggings are all from Bigley’s.

Hue leggings are my favourite because they last forever, there’s so many different colours and styles, and these ones in particular are super warm!

Outfit Of The Day: Perfect For Transitioning From Fall To Winter

IMG_8778

Hey guys! Sorry I’ve been a little MIA recently! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks! Black Friday is quickly approaching us, which is a busy time for the marketing team at Bigley’s. I’ve also been hitting up the gym more frequently, which has been awesome, but has cut into my blogging time a bit! Hopefully once we get through Black Friday I’ll be able to juggle my extra time between the gym and blogging a little better! However, I’m super excited to show you this look! This was my “outfit of the day”, one day last week. It’s a great outfit for transitioning from fall to winter.

This coat is by Lyla + Luxe. One of the things that I love most about this coat is that it’s a very stretchy material, which makes it even more comfortable then it looks. I also love the colour. If you keep up-to-date with fashion trends, you’ve probably heard over and over again that olive is the neutral of the season. And to be honest, I couldn’t be happier about that. Whether it’s trending or not, olive has always been one of my favourite colours to wear. PS. (totally off topic) but I just want to clarify that in Canada we spell ‘favourite’ and ‘colour’ with a U lol. A few American readers have kindly reached out to let me know I’ve been spelling those words wrong, however for some reason here in Canada we spell them a little differently! Just wanted to clear that up! haha. Anywho, back to this coat. I love the length of it as well. Not only does it add a bit more warmth, and allows you to dress it up if need be. I decided to keep it pretty casual here, but a little bootie with a heel would be super cute as well.

The sweater I’m wearing is by French Connection. This sweater is so extremely warm. It also looks great on its own. It’s a great neutral, cozy sweater to wear with a pair of jeans. However, if you have a problem with wearing wool sweaters due to them feeling itchy, I wouldn’t recommend this sweater to you. As warm and cozy as it is, it does feel a little itchy on the skin.

The boots I’m wearing are by Ten Points, which is a fairly new brand that Bigley’s is carrying. One thing that I love about these boots is that they’re made with VEGETABLE tanned leather. They’re a great ‘everyday’ boot. They’re a little more casual but still pull the outfit together, to appear classy and stylish. They’re also available in dark blue.

My purse is by Fossil, and is available in store at Bigley Shoes & Clothing.

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.

Super Cute Neutral Look for Fall & Winter

9A530953-D5DA-4ACA-B500-098A89424536

I told you guys my next post was going to be about my hair, but when I put this look together today I got so excited, I had to bump it to the front of the line! But all the details about my hair will be next! Promise!

I’ve been eyeing these boots ever since they arrived at Bigley’s, and when I paired them with this vest I knew I HAD to have them! These boots are by Michael Kors. They’re available in burgundy and black as well. I could go on for days about these boots, but I’ll try to keep it short and sweet! One of the main reasons I love them so much, is how versatile they are. You could dress them up and wear them with a dress or a skirt. Or you could pair them with something more casual, like I did here or with a oversized sweater and leggings. I also love the colour. It’s the perfect neutral, meaning outfit options are endless! Another thing I should point out is how stretchy they are. One of my girlfriends always has trouble finding tall boots that fit her calf, but these ones fit no problem! The tie detail at the top also helps with this.  Also can we talk about how cute the silver chain detail around the heel is?! LOVE! Needless to say, these will be a pair of my go-to boots for fall and winter!

Moving on to this ADORABLE vest. It’s by Cupcakes & Cashmere. Again, the colour is the first thing I fell in love with. It’s neutral, and can be worn with numerous things, numerous different ways (over a dress, over a top and skirt, over a long sweater and leggings, etc.). Not to mention, it’s SOOOOO cozy! It’s the perfect definition of comfort and style. So again, this will be another key piece for me the next couple of seasons.

I paired it with a basic cream sweater underneath, and added this super cute Fossil purse, which is actually a brand spanken new arrival at Bigley’s.
