3 WAYS TO WEAR BLACK THIS FALL & WINTER

Whenever the seasons change from warm to cool, I’m always drawn to darker colours. A palette of deep, earthy hues like coal, auburn, chestnut and dark olive always feels so comforting to wear. Black, in particular, has an innate sophistication and a grounding quality that has a big impact on my minimalist style of dressing. While a dark palette can sometimes feel severe, I’ve found that there are simple ways to soften the look and add warmth. To demonstrate these, I’ll be using a few new pieces from Eileen Fisher*, which have quickly become some of my favourite staples of the season. So, if li ..read more

I love revisiting my closet staples with fresh eyes and discovering new ways to style them for another season. Today I’m doing exactly that and sharing four ways to consider styling a basic white button up. I’ve had The Tailor Proper Fit shirt by Power of My People in my closet since the start of 2021 and it only seems to get more comfortable and more versatile with every season. I love the crisp white, single pocket, tonal buttons, relaxed fit, and minimal details that keep it feeling casual (like a buttonless collar and seamless front placket). It’s made in Canada from sustainably sourced 4 ..read more

1y ago
Spring has always been a tricky season for me when it comes to a concise sense of style and it feels really good to finally have a cohesive foundation to work from. When it comes to curating an intentional and functional wardrobe versatility needs to be a priority. When I say something is “versatile” what I mean is: It can easily mix and match with most of the closet. It can be styled several different ways. It can work for a range of occasions from casual to elevated. It feels good to wear and move in, whether sitting, walking, driving or active. This year I made a point of noting which ite ..read more

SENTIMENTS FROM THE STYLE BEE NEWSLETTER

In each Style Bee newsletter I share a sentiment that spoke to me during the week. Sometimes it’s a question that got me thinking, sometimes it’s a thought that stuck with me, sometimes it’s a bit of gentle guidance. I often hear from subscribers that the sentiments have resonated with them as well and I thought it would be worth sharing some from this year so far here on the blog. Yes, quotes can be a bit eye roll inducing but they can also be comforting, encouraging, thought-provoking and even perspective shifting. When someone’s words meet us where we’re at it can help us feel less isolated ..read more
