I don’t know much about my ancestry or genetics because my maternal grandmother was adopted and I background on my birth father’s side. A few months ago I decided I wanted to know more so I went down the rabbit hole of internet-researching DNA kits. There are so many options out there – with varying levels of reliability, price, and differences in what information they provide. After much research I decided to order a 23 & Me Health & Ancestry Kit. Today I am sharing my honest review of the 23 & Me DNA kit. Wondering what the heck I’m doing in the photo above?? I swear it relates to the DNA kit – read on to see how 👀 PS. Before I get started – FYI: You can get 10% off your 23 & Me order by using my referral link here!   Two Types of 23 & Me DNA Kits: 23 & Me has two different DNA kit options – the Ancestry Service & the Health & Ancestry Service. You can read the specific differences on their website; but in short – the Health & Ancestry kit has all of the ancestral components of the initial kit, but […]

I’m such a fan of this white lace pencil skirt. (…. did you catch that dad humor?! There are paper fan umbrellas above me in these pics 😂) In all seriousness though, this lace pencil skirt is a great piece or your wear-to-work wardrobe. It’s polished, it’s comfortable (it has an elastic waist!), and it has a beautiful hemline. The first time I wore it to the office I received a number of compliments – but also a number of questions about wearing lace to the office. I realized that lace can be a bit intimidating when it comes to styling it for the office / a work environment so I wanted to bring you an easy guide on the do’s and dont’s of styling lace for the office. pearl detail blouse // white lace pencil skirt // similar white belt – (Canadian link) (US link) // white heels // lipstick (shade is K-Dub) I think the biggest concern people have with styling lace for work, is a worry that it is not professional enough. That is not the case at all if you keep in mind the following ‘Do’s‘ when picking out a lace piece that you plan on […]

I  couldn’t resist taking photos at this gorgeous farmhouse chic spot, and i figured my floral dress that can be worn for the office (more pics of it styled with a blazer below!) would be the perfect outfit for it. You may not know this about me, but I’m a country girl at heart! I grew up on 36 acres with tons of animals. My dad is a veterinarian so in addition to our own cats, dogs & horses, there were always tons of unique pets coming and going. While I’m a city girl now and spend 99% of my time in suits, I will always have a soft spot for everything country and love the mix of country / farmhouse meets modern. Hence this chic farmhouse decor paired with my a summer wear-to-work outfit! Dress from Simons (shop floral wear to work dresses below) // similar blazer This floral dress jumped out at me the moment i saw it. I love the button front / flared fit, and it is *just* long enough that I feel comfortable wearing it to the office. As you can see below, for work I pair it with an olive green blazer to keep […]

Fashion / Beauty: 1. Espadrilles: I only got these shoes a few days ago, but I love them so much that they already top my list of fashion favorites for the month!

It’s no secret that I love colorful pantsuits. I ‘m a die hard pant suit fan; make it in a color and I am sold! I think if there was one fashion style I was to be most known for, it would probably be colored pantsuits. I’ve styled so many here on LLB and instagram over the past three years that I decided it was about time that I rounded them up and give you a bunch of colored pantsuits all in one spot for some colorful corporate style inspiration! Speaking of my instagram – head over there later today for a ridiculous colored pant suit video I made. It was a blast to film and I am being a total goofball in it. I’ll be posting sometime late morning! Now let’s get to some colored suits! – –     Red     – – You can’t go wrong with a suit in such a powerful color. It’s easy to accessorize with simple black and white, and always looks polished. See Full Red Suit Post: Here Shop Red Pantsuits: – –     Orange     – – Not a color I ever thought I’d wear; I’ve found myself drawn more and more to orange this year. […]

What to Know About New Abortion Laws Last week the state of Alabama passed the most restrictive abortion law currently in existence in the United States of America, banning abortion outright and making it punishable (for doctor’s performing abortions) by up to 99 years in prison. This got the world’s attention. But this is just one piece of a very complex puzzle that goes to the heart of the legal system, human rights, and the role of government. Let me be very clear. I believe that these laws are not about being “pro-life”. These laws are about control. These laws ensure the perpetuation of cycles of poverty. If the issue here was really about protecting life, the supporters of these bills would be advocates of greater funding to the foster care system, better access to parenting resources, and greater investment in childhood education. They are not. Because this is not about protecting life. This is the systemic dismantling of women’s rights. So what do you need to know about the new abortion laws? I’m going to break it down into categories. The Legal Background The New Laws What this Means Right Now / Current Abortion Access Next steps What YOU […]

This seersucker jumpsuit is quickly becoming one of my favorite pieces for spring/summer. You can’t help but feel summery when you wear seersucker and this jumpsuit has been putting me in the best mood for the warm weather we’ve been having here in Vancouver. I’ve seen a lot of seersucker dresses over the years, which are beautiful, but I really like that Eliza J has taken seersucker and created a jumpsuit since it’s nice to have something in this material that you can wear on an active spring/summer day. I wore this look to hang out at the seawall, and I would wear it with keds or converse to bike the sea wall or go on a mini-adventure around town. Seersucker jumpsuit c/o // Dress version // Heels (almost sold out. Similar here) As always with Eliza J, I’m impressed by the quality of this seersucker jumpsuit. It’s lined, the zipper sits perfectly, and the pleats on the front make the jumpsuit extra flattering/slimming. I also love the attention to detail with the ruffle shoulders. How cute are they! One thing I should note about the jumpsuit is the fit. I’m 5’8 and it just fits me length wise without […]
