Welcome to chic everywhere

chic everywhere

Last week I retired the name torontoShopoholic. I started building my original Toronto Shopping website back in 2009 when my daughter was only a few months old. She is now 7.5! I added a personal style blog to the brand after the birth of my son in 2011 and he is turning 5 this week. I have been at this blogging game for a while.

When I picked my original blog name I thought it was a fun combination. It wasn’t my way of admitting any shopping addiction (although that might be a matter of perspective according to my husband!!). At the time I never imagined that we would leave Toronto.

Of course I was wrong. I had gone from being a stay at home mom to a working mom and we rarely made it back into Toronto.  Continue Reading…

Work Layers

work layers

Dressing for September is full of contradictions. Even within the same day. You might need warm layers in the morning and no layers by late afternoon.

I like the whole sleeveless coat idea for a work layer instead of a cardigan or something shapeless. This way you have more structure and still look professional.  Continue Reading…
