Last week, Shoppers Drug Mart invited me for a complete women’s pampering weekend leading up to the “Love You” Run for Women on Sunday, May 7, 2017. If you were following along my Instagram stories, you would have seen that we checked into the Sheraton Ottawa Hotel, got made over ( by DIOR!!) at the SDM Beauty Gala inside the Rideau Centre, had dinner at Restaurant 18 and then I pampered myself with some of the products I received in my goody bag from Shoppers Drug Mart! And… I almost fainted when I received a note to pick up a free pair of Brooks running shoes at the Running Room. I can’t wait to break these bad boys in, after my surgery on June 7!
Who would have ever predicted that athletic wear would become a fashion trend? Thank goodness the fashion gods have blessed us with Athleisure! I am more than happy to wear cushioned running shoes and leggings for the sake of style, I know my feet and legs are thanking me. Today’s post is all about Athleisure for curvy women, and I have partnered with Addition Elle to bring you the latest and greatest they have to offer this season. It’s been difficult to find really supportive workout clothes that come in larger sizes, and I am extremely grateful that Addition Elle has us covered!
For my trip to Toronto a few weeks ago, I headed over to Merivale Vision Care to pull some sunglasses to help me style some looks. Merivale Vision Care, also known as EyeSeeYow on Instagram, is Ottawa’s premier destination for unique and stylish designer sunglasses and eyewear in the city. The staff is super friendly and the inventory is out of this world!
Lately, I am in love with the oversized vintage denim jacket trend, albeit I realize that it’s not the most flattering look, especially for my wide frame. But you know what? I don’t care! I love my vintage Preloved jean jacket by Wrangler. It’s so comfortable and roomy and it does that perfect temperature control only denim can do. I wear it all the time, and I am styling a lot of looks using this trend.
