Treating Yourself Is The Spice Of Life

I eluded to a small Anthropolgogie shopping spree in my Jillian Michaels Body Shred recap, which made many of you chuckle. Really though, did anyone think I’d make it out of Toronto without setting foot in that store? [silence] Didn’t think so. It has been quite a while since I’ve shared an outfit post, so here is my excuse to show off a new purchase – and a beautiful bouquet of flowers I spoiled myself with. ellepottsiestreet styleflowerstreat yo selflauren

After A Little Hiatus, It’s Time For Another Round of Outfit Pictures

I know, I know, I’ve been slacking with my outfit sharing lately. Life has been crazy and showering and doing my hair taking pictures has fallen by the wayside. I’m sure you’ve all missed my smiling mug shots lots – ha! Anyways, if you did, today is your lucky day. ellepottsie ellepottsie ellepottsieellepottsie ellepottsie ellepottsieJeans: Citizens of Humanity (old) / T Shirt: Aritzia – Wilfred / Jacket: American Eagle (similar) / Purse: Chloe / Sunnies: Ray-Ban /Sandals: Anthropologie – IsaperaellepottsieHave a lovely day friends!

Fabulous Finds Friday

For some reason everyday this week has felt like Friday – but lo and behold, it is now the real deal! Today’s fabulous finds are inspired by the warm summer months ahead of us – I guess you could say that this is another one of my sunny uniforms!

FAB FRI1. How cute is this Floral Recipe Box?! I am always jotting down recipes and I end up with post it notes all over the kitchen – this vintage looking tin would definitely help me declutter. And I’d probably bake more often too, just to fill it up!

2. Jeans shorts are fabulous for the summer, but this pair of Rag & Bone black cut offs will set you apart from the crowd. Just a little edgy and a lot flattering – now that is right up my alley.

3. Eye wear is absolutely essential when you’re sitting on a patio enjoying the warm weather and this Warby Parker pair will keep you looking stylish – and incognitio, if that’s what you’re going for.

4. As the days get longer, keeping track of time becomes more difficult. Wear this Nixon classic and you won’t miss a beat.

5. Treat yourself to a pedicure and then head to your local Zara [or online store] and pick up these neutral and metallic flats. Your feet will love you!

6. Top it all off with a graphic t – I’m loving all the designer parody slogans lately, especially Homies South Central which pays homage to the low rider culture in South Central LA while creatively spoofing the Hermes signature logo.

Have a wonderful Friday friends!

Fabulous Finds Friday

I had every intention to post about the upcoming Ottawa Race Weekend and my first half marathon training experiences, but then I came across this beautiful Dolce Vita peplum blouse and it tugged on my heart strings so much that I couldn’t resist sharing it with you right now. I promise I will write at least one post about my half marathon experience [and it will be complete since I’ll write it after race day] – I do have lots to talk about when it comes to running but today is Friday, and I definitely have a few fabulous items on my wishlist.

Fab Friday

This is my uniform for the next few months – a beautiful, lightweight tank top [how great is this Dolce Vita Eyelet Peplum Blouse?!], a pair of denim cut offs [Citizens of Humanity Ava Cutoffs], printed sandals [Loeffler Randal], a small shoulder bag to hold my summer essentials [Pour La Victoire] and a pair of half-frame sunnies [Ray-Ban]. If only the weather would cooperate.

What is your summer outfit of choice?

Have a wonderful weekend!
