4 Fall Looks with Dixie Outlet Mall (3rd Look)


Sharing my 3rd look today that I purchased at Dixie Outlet Mall. I love this outfit so much! It's so comfy and very causal. Perfect for everyday running around doing errands.
This is my first cotton plaid shirt, all the others I own are flannel. I got it from Urban Planet for $15 (Reg. 22.99) It's so lightweight and love the fact it has the buttons on the arms, so I have the option to roll my sleeves up. To go with my plaid shirt, I found these distressed black skinny jeans also at Urban Planet. They were regular $39.99, but I ended up getting $5 off if I signed up for their emails.
To complete the look, I found these beautiful taupe ankle boots from Call It Spring. I can walk around in these boots all day, they are just so comfortable! The small chunky heel makes a world of a different on my feel compared to a stiletto heel.  They were $79.99, but there was a promo for $20 off so I got them for $59.99.
If you missed look 1 and 2, check them out here and here!
Hope everyone has a great week!

4 Fall Looks with Dixie Outlet Mall (2nd Look)


Here is my next look I purchased from my Dixie Outlet Mall collaboration. (If you missed my first look, click here)
I love these Jogger pants I picked up at Dynamite. So happy they came in this olive green colour, because I don't have anything that colour in my Fall wardrobe as of yet. They were regular $49.95, but I got them for only $30! The black short sleeve top I found at Ardene for a steal! The whole store was 70% off, so I got it for only $4.35 (Reg. $14.50)I'm still kicking myself I didn't buy more.
These pants would look great with any flats, but I wanted to go for a more dressy look. So, I found these suede closed toe heels from Sirens for only $11.99 (Reg. $19.98). My purse is the same one from the last post. I picked it up at Winners for only $39.99 (Reg. $75.00). On cooler nights a leather jacket would go perfect with this outfit!
Stay tuned for look 3 coming to the blog next week!
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving weekend!

Afternoon Tea at The Plaza Hotel

If you follow me on Instagram, you would remember I was in NYC back in August celebrating my 8th wedding Anniversary. During our stay, we were lucky enough to experience the famous afternoon tea at The Plaza hotel in the Palm Court.

The Palm Court is so beautiful and elegant. As soon as you walk into the hotel, the restaurant is straight ahead.  I can't believe it's been around for over 100 years. The gorgeous stained-glass dome has everyone looking up while dining. It's so pretty!


Afternoon Tea is served daily from 12-5pm, and I strongly suggest to book a reservation because they book up all the time. We booked our reservation for 1pm. We had the choice of choosing from 2 options. "The New Yorker Tea" or "The Champagne Tea" Who could turn down champagne? so we went with the Champagne Afternoon Tea.
Once we were seated, we were given a menu of a wide selection of loose leaf teas to choose from. I got "The Des Amants" tea which is an apple, cinnamon and vanilla flavour. My husband got the "Rooibos Des Vahines" which is a Vanilla Almond flavour.
  While we waited for our tea, they brought us 2 glasses of Champagne in these gorgeous glasses which had The Plaza's logo engraved on it. We got to chose from 2 types of Champagne as well, the Veuve Clicquot Brut or the Moet & Chandon Brut Rose Imperial, we went with the Veuve Clicquot Brut.

Our sandwiches and desserts were served on this beautiful 3 tier tray.
For our sandwiches and savories we had:
-Thyme Roasted Prime Rib Sandwich, Horseradish Aioli and Arugula on an Onion Roll
-Peekytoe Crab Salad, Green Apple, Cucumber, Black Truffle Oil, Grain Mustard Aioli on a Pretzel Crostini
-Foie Gras Torchon, Sweet & Sour Shallots, Cracked Hazelnuts, Fig Jam on a Toasted Brioche
-Hudson Valley Smoked Salmon, Smoked Salmon Mousse, Pickled Mustard Seeds, Pressed Cucumber
My favourite was the Lobster Roll, Daikon Sprouts on a Buttered Brioche Roll! Yum! They also have a Confit New Potato with Chive Crème Fraiche and American Sturgeon Caviar! It was my first time having Caviar and I have to say it was pretty good!
We also had freshly baked scones with Double Devonshire Cream and Lemon Curd and Preserves. They were so good!

For dessert we had a selection of pastries and sweets such as:
-Almond and Apple Frangipane Savarin
-Coffee and Brandy Chouquette
-Pistachio Green Tea Financier
-Chocolate  Passion Fruit Macaron
-Chocolate Hazelnut Plaisier
-Black  & White  Éclair
-Fresh Fruit Tart

 Everything was so good. We were stuffed after all that food. The experience we had eating at the Plaza was amazing! I so recommend going if you were visiting NYC. The service was excellent too. I kind of felt like we were treated like royalty, lol! Everything from the table setting, the service, and the food, it was so luxury.
 Once we finished eating, we got to tour some of the rooms in the plaza. The rooms are GORGEOUS!
The first room we saw was "The Tower Room" The room and bed was in a round room with a 23 foot brick turret  ceiling. It also overlooked Fifth Avenue as well.

The next suite we saw was " The Ellington Park Suite" It had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The suite connected to another bedroom which would be perfect for a family. The parents would have the suite and the kids would be in the second bedroom. The suite had a very elegant living room, and the bedrooms were full of mosaic tile and gold accent pieces.

4 Fall Looks with Dixie Outlet Mall (1st Look)

If you read my blog often, you'll remember my posts on my collaborations with Dixie Outlet Mall, and the amazing deals I have found.
For those of you who are new to my blog, Dixie Outlet Mall is located in Mississauga, Ontario. Every time I go, I always find a good deal. So, if you live in the area, you have to check it out. They just added a Forever 21 that has nothing over $15 in the store! Amazing right?!
I am so excited that I have partnered with them again to show you 4 different fall outfits and how much I saved.
Here is my first look:


This outfit is perfect for the beginning of Fall. The past few days have been so nice - you don't need a jacket.
I picked up this cute dress from Urban Planet for only $20 (Reg. $42) I am going to get so much use out of this dress. I can wear it in the summer with a pair of flip flops, or in the fall with thigh high boots like I styled it here. For those cooler nights, I could always throw on a light jacket.
I wanted a pair of thigh high boots last year, but I couldn't find a pair in my size. They were selling out everywhere! I picked up these ones at Sirens for $54.99. They were just put on the shelves a couple of days before I purchased them, so they were regular price, but I think they are a staple item for Fall. To finish off the look, I scored this purse for only $39.99 at Winners (Reg. $75 ) The nail head detail and tassel sold me, lol!
Check back next week for Look 2!

Floral Kimono




Kimono- Jean Machine     White Jeans- Urban Planet     Grey Tank Top- Forever 21 
 Booties- Sirens    Choker- Pretty Thingz
Sorry for the lack of posts the past couple of weeks. With my son going back to school, and my husband starting a new job, we needed to figure out a new routine. 

I absolutely love this look on the blog today. I purchased this Floral Kimono at Jean Machine, and I think it's another great transition piece into Fall. It's very lightweight and flows so well. 
I love the floral print too. The flowers are a perfect size that doesn't make it look too busy.  I think it will look great with any pair of denim or black leggings. I styled it here with white jeans, a dark grey tank top, and black booties which I think goes well together. To finish off the look, I added a wrap around choker which has gold accent pieces on the ends which I love! 
I linked some similar items below that I love too. Have a great week!

Blue & White Romper

Dress- Winners    Shoes- Target    Handbag- Louis Vuitton    Sunglasses- GUESS
This is pretty embarrassing to say, but this is my first Romper! I know..crazy right? I always loved the look of them, but I could never find one that fit me properly.
This one is from Winners, and I love it so much. I am so glad I finally found one that I liked.  I wore this for our second dinner in NYC a few weeks ago (See first outfit here
 I paired it with my nude heels from Target, and my LV Neverfull handbag. I love the pattern detail on the romper, and the cute little tie waist tassel. I also love that it has long sleeves, which is perfect to wear now as we transition into the Fall. I think it would look super cute with a pair of booties! Can't wait for the cooler weather- I love Fall so much!
I have linked a few other items that are similar below. Hope you have a great weekend!

Grey Floral Dress

Dress- Marshalls    Shoes- Target    Handbag- Louis Vuitton   Sunglasses- GUESS
 I love this dress so much. I picked it up about a month ago from Marshalls, for our trip to NYC a few weeks ago. I wore it for our Anniversary dinner at Buddakan. (yes, that's the restaurant from the movie Sex in the City, lol) The food was amazing!  I highly recommend going there if you are in New York City. It's such a gorgeous restaurant too.
I fell in love with the beautiful floral pattern on this dress- it's just so pretty. I paired it with my nude heels from Target which are so comfortable.
I am so glad I brought my LV Neverfull bag with me.  It was perfect to carry my bigger items like my camera and sweater because I always get cold in restaurants with the AC.
I have another outfit I wore for our second dinner that I will be posting later this week, so stay tuned.
I linked a few other similar items that I love below! Have a great week!
