Contemporary Elegance Portraits with Shanel

This past weekend I had the fabulous experience of getting the beautiful and energizing Shanel of From the Heart and Soul in front of my lens for a day of beauty, elegance, glamour, and a few good laughs along the way. From the moment she walked in through hair, makeup, and clothing changes this woman just radiates confidence, poise, and the very definition of contemporary elegance through the portrait artwork creation session. I'm thrilled to share with you today just a few of the many sides to Shanel in art with her portraits!

Style Me Monday: Looking Hot While Getting Sexy

Looking Hot While Getting Sexy

 

This week's style inspiration comes from my recent trip to Lululemon with my good friend Michelle.
I have been working this year to get myself looking & feeling good inside and out. I've cleaned up my eating, been hitting the gym regularly, sleeping more at night, and taking care of myself.
My usual gym wear consists of oversized tees or basic ribbed tanks, with stretchy pants or short. This year I got to add the awesome skirt pictured before (and a fun hairband) to my workout wear wardrobe. I was super thrilled with the fabrics, the fit, the styles but two things that stood out:
  1. They have all lengths! Hallelujah!
  2. When they add grip to something (like the grip on the legs of the shorts under that skirt so they don't ride up or the little grip dots inside my new hairband) the grip is made of silicone and there's no latex in sight (I'm allergic).

 

Now I'm setting goals for myself then rewarding myself with a fantastic workout wardrobe!

 

What do you wear to workout?

Style Me Monday: Accessories Love!

Okay, anybody else a massive accessories junkie?

I love accessories more than I can say. Shoes, Scarves, Hats, Jewellery, Bags and more!

This year I've done a whole lot of paring back in my wardrobe and accessories banishing the old, worn out, too big, too small, and the stuff I just plain don't wear. Now looking at it there are some key things missing - colour & personality.

I've been holding off buying clothes til I lose more weight, or decide on my style, or find out if I got the job....

Sound familiar? One place where you can start to spice it up - Accessories!

These items are high on my wish list:

1) A beautiful silver necklace inspired by skeleton keys that spells out "LOVE"

2) This beautiful light teal/seafoam colour school boy bag! It's got colour and structure that add some character to even simple jeans and tees.

Accessories Love!

Style Me Monday: Spring Skirts

Spring has sprung and it's finally starting to feel like it! This last weekend got me thinking about pulling out the skirts to celebrate the rising temperatures!
This week I pulled together a few of my favorite styles.
When I cracked open the closet and peered inside...
Where were my cute skirts? Where was the fun and polish?
Oh Right...at this time last year I was ill, and 15lbs heavier.
I used that as an excuse not to buy or wear anything that attracted attention or showed my body.
Now it's time for a change...
Am I at my goal weight? No!
Is that going to stop me from being fabulous? No!
Today I've rounded up 4 of the top styles on my wishlist this year
1.) Classic ALine Skirt in Black, Navy, or Charcoal
2.) A Colourful, Textured, or Printed Pencil Skirt
3.) A Skirt with Youthful flare like this sequin number
4.) A Classic Pencil Skirt with a twist - Bandage Layers, Unique accents
This are now on my shopping list. (I'm keeping my eye's out for a number of items for my wardrobe this spring...)
What's your favourite spring skirt style?

Style Me Monday: Nautical Inspiration

Nautical Inspiration

 

What Style Trend are you trying out this Spring?
I fully admit, I'm not always up on (or supportive of) the biggest trends in fashion, but, one style inspiration that always looks gorgeous to me is the nautical stripe.
The nautical stripe can be casual or dressy but always comes off classy.
My question is, with something so versatile and classic...why have I never in my adult life owned a nautical stripe?
I think the time has come to add this staple to my wardrobe. My next challenge...finding the perfect piece and fit!

Wedding Wednesday: Keep the Love Alive

Keep the love alive

 

Okay, I know technically I'm on vacation this week and not supposed to be writing but I just had to share this.
I found it on pinterest a few weeks ago and loved it! The idea is at you bridal/wedding shower, stag and doe, or even the wedding itself you set out a can or notebook and ask guests to put down some date ideas. It can be hard during the planning stages and in the year that follows the wedding to take the time to make dates with each other but this time together is oh so important to your relationship. This gives you a great resource of ideas big and small for whenever you can find a little time to spend together.
Hope you love iYours Enthusiastically Rebecca - Rebecca Nash Photographyt!

As you probably know, this years fashion colour of the year is Emerald. It's popping up everywhere!
My question is, will you be incorporating it into your 2013 wedding day?
Here are a few of my favourite ways to add a splash of this fresh green shade into the day with your bridesmaids dresses (but lets face it, I'd wear this dress anywhere!), a great bag of essentials for you and your girls, or a pretty mani & pedi!
