3 Floral Looks For Valentine’s Day (& Beyond)

12th Feb 2019

A day dedicated to love can be whenever you want it to be, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t excited for Valentine’s Day this year. For us, the day of love is a reminder that spring is right around the corner and it’s time to welcome bright hues and fresh blooms into our wardrobe.  To make sure you look and feel your best on the most romantic day of the year, we’ve created three floral-inspired looks, all from our new spring ’19 collections. Read on to find out how to make a statement in a bold floral ensemble or keep things subtle with hint of florals accents, pinks and reds. The Classic Floral Bouquet Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a statement floral top. It’s flirty and head-turning, and there’s no denying these red hues have the ability to instantly brighten your mood. When it comes to desk-to-dinner ready tops, we’re totally crushing on this elegant Chiffon Blouse. Its drapey silhouette looks gorgeous with sleek bottoms like our Slim Essential Fit Stretch Pant and subtle jewellery for an effortlessly romantic look. The Romantic Ruffles If bright and bold red isn’t your style, opt for romantic, feminine accents in your ensemble. We have a soft spot for this Ruffle Detail Floral Top thanks to its intricate floral pattern, delicate styling and also, because it pairs perfectly with our new favourite Navy Capri of the season.

5 New Year Goals We Should All Share

5 New Year Goals We Should All Share

2nd Jan 2019

Amidst all the hosting, shopping and celebrating, the thought of setting New Year goals and “I really need to” is running in everyone’s mind. From weight loss to new career goals, we all have our wish-list to achieve but the truth is, nearly 90 percent of those optimistically life-altering plans fail. And, that’s never good news!   The reasons are simple: We set goals that are either too high or too low; we aim for things that provide momentarily happiness and while we may start strong, our will dwindles, bit by bit along the way. So, how about we make sure that the year 2019 is nothing short of amazing by setting goals that lead to inner peace and mindfulness? Here are some ideas to start with.  1. Smile More Nothing you wear is more important than your smile and it has everything to do with how grateful you are for the little things in life.Thousands of great things happen to us every day and they are all cues to smile more — a hot cup of freshly brewed coffee, a hug from your child, a kiss from a loved one — aren’t these all good enough reasons for a wide grin? 2. Eat Healthier  For most of us, changing our unhealthy habits is a challenge of a lifetime but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. The key is to take baby steps in the right direction: Removing processed food with whole foods, eating one healthy meal a day and clearing off misconceptions like healthy food = bland food, are some easy hab …

Trends to Wear: All Things Plaid

20th Dec 2018

As much as we love florals and solid colours, we all know that no print will ever be quite as festive as plaid. So this season, we decided to elevate the plaid in our collection with checkered outerwear, classic cardigans and chic accessories. Whether you want to go bold, add a subtle touch under another pattern or include only a hint of plaid in your accessories, we're sharing our top tips to help you look stylish in this forever classic…throughout the festive season (and the rest of the year, too!). Tip 1: Rework Your Favourite Plaid Shirt  We all have a staple plaid shirt (or five!) in our closets that can be worn a million different ways, so don’t be afraid to try something new!  Tuck your plaid shirt into our Slim Essential Denim for a streamlined look that’s a little dressier, or play up your favourite neutral sweater with a pop of plaid underneath. You can also opt for our Point Zero Pearl Detail Plaid Shirt for a subtle feminine flair.  Tip 2: Experiment with Plaid Accessories From scarves to socks, there are tons of ways you can add a hint of plaid to your outfit. We’re loving plaid layering pieces right now – especially our Reversible Blanket Scarf that has a classic plaid print on one side and an on-trend animal print on the other – a definite must-have this time of the year! And how can we forget the ever-so-essential - the ultra-warm and soft Plaid Thermal Socks that have a practical non-slip gripper …

Christmas, with all the shopping, cooking and hosting, sometimes leaves us with little or no time to sit back and relax with our loved ones.

Curl up on the couch with your loved ones for a night to remember but before you snuggle, make sure you have all the essentials: some festive PJ's and warm socks to keep you toasty.  Cozy Up Your Bedtime Routine Our sleep patterns tend to get a little haywire over the holidays, so it’s the perfect time of year to upgrade your bedtime routine for a good night’s sleep (a hydrating eye mask, some scented hand creams and a lavender pillow spray are a few fab additions).  And, of course, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got the right clothes to help you relax. Choose something comfy and warm with a festive touch to really cozy up your shut-eye.  Schedule Some Me-Time  It’s the most wonderful time of the year – but also one of the busiest!
