Look no further, I found the perfect black lace bralette that will actually hold your girls in and cover your cleavage! Unless of course that is not what you are looking to do.
I was searching high and low for a bralette that I could wear under tops that have a deep neckline or my romper that crosses over the chest. You and I both know that the cross top never has enough coverage and I don’t want my girls peaking through the sides.
This black lace bralette is from Addition Elle, and the just restocked it! So I urge you to buy it right away! I regretted not buying it last month, when I featured it on my CTV segment about Addition Elle bras.
So, to thank my readers for sticking around, I decided to post a pic of me in the bra! It’s so delicate and pretty that I want to wear it out in public, just like that!
This bra is size X at Addition Elle, which fits like a Large/XL in other stores and is only $40. I am also told the lingerie line at Addition Elle fits one size smaller than normal. In the last picture, you can see how the delicate lace in the back is thick enough to actually cover your back and not get wedged under the rolls! hahaha
Why are you still reading? GO BUY THE BRALETTE!
My style goal this spring and summer is to embrace the boho fashion trend, and I think these photos taken at The Tech Wall (a.k.a dog park!) prove that Emma and I nailed it!
I met Emma online, through the Rising Tide Society (Ottawa Chapter). It’s a collaborative group for creatives. We organized this shoot in a few days and made some magic happen! Emma primarily does Ottawa wedding photography, but she’s obviously skilled in street style… wouldn’t you say? These photos came out perfect, and the shoot only lasted 20 min! Now that is talent! She has a great eye and I love the way she makes colours so bright and vibrant!
Now, about the outfit!
I bought my off-the-shoulder top last summer inside Fashion Truck Canada during Bluesfest last year. It was a great investment! I’ve worn it many times and the fact that it’s long and flowy means versatility! I’m wearing Paige jeans from Fashion United, a vintage Fendi purse, my new Emu Australia mules, sunnies from Ardene (I know!right?) and my hat from Aritzia.
Get Social with Emma!
This Sunday, I signed up for a major impromptu photoshoot with the most talented creative powerhouse I know: Brittany Frid, Owner and Creative Director of Satin & Snow, Ottawa’s leading fine art wedding planning and designing company.
Yes. This woman of many talents, is also picking up photography on her not-so-spare time. I’ve been following Brittany over the last two years online and I truly admire her self-made success. Like me, she works hard, non-stop, round-the-clock. That’s what it takes to make it, and my friends, she has made it.
I love her fresh romantic style and her creative eye. She has photographed me in ways that I have never seen myself. It’s remarkable. I am so in love with these photos and feel privileged to have worked with her. You know that I ALWAYS smile in my pictures, it’s my security blanket. I usually hate my serious face, and this woman captured it bang on! Or “BINGO” as she would say! She admitted that she was weary of shooting in the sunlight, and would also be going out of her comfort zone. But I have to say that the light and gentle breeze are what made these pictures come alive.
When I asked what “mood” she wanted to shoot, she told me “light, white and airy”. With only a few minutes to get ready for the photo shoot, I knew only one skirt could pull this look together: my white pleated skirt from Melanie Lynn, circa 2012. I can’t believe I have had it for that long. In fact, I wore it to my best friend’s wedding when I just found out I was pregnant with Victor. Lots of great memories in that skirt! So glad the style has come back. You can pick up a similar pleated skirt at Aritzia (I recently bought the black one!). I paired it with my blush Academy knit tank which I purchased after my Spring Lookbook photoshoot with Smithery and my grey hat (also from Artizia). On my lips, I am wearing Stila’s liquid lipstick in Baci.
I was happy to have been invited to an intimate presentation with Lynn Spence who was sharing her styling tips for spring with none other than… Sears Canada! Yes, Sears. I never thought I would openly admit to it, but Sears has game this season!
I love Lynn. I met her a few months back at Shepherd’s Fall Fashion Week. She is such a delight and always looks amazing! I truly appreciate all her tips and styling advice. She is a true pro. You can tell by the way she describes fabric and clothing and especially when she comes up with on-the-fly styling ideas.
Here is a recap of some of Lynn’s tips:
- Feminine and flirty are a hit whether you pair a floral skirt with it’s matching cardigan or wear them as seperates
- The beige trench coat is still, well, a classic piece in your wardrobe and the perfect addition to any monochromatic look
- Moto jackets can be styled as a blazer for a more edgy and modern twist
- Embossed textures offer a luxurious but comfortable look
- Blush is THE colour of the season
- White jeans go with everything (but we already knew that!)
Being the curious person that I am, I am looking forward to heading over to Sears and checking out the clothes for myself!
