Day 5

I am on day 5 of my style challenge and I feel its going great and think it will only get better. It is making me think outside of the box and to really go through my closet. I am having to find piece that haven’t been worn in a while or not at all. Yes, I am only on day 5 so the though process it still a little on the easier side. I do feel its going to start to get a lot tougher by next week when part of my plan of doing this challenge was to try my hardest to not ware the same thing twice if I can. Yes, there will be some exception as jeans are different. Everyone including me have a couple of pairs that are loved so much that they get worn all the time. So yes I will most like be wearing my jeans more then once, and really who doesn’t.

if you haven’t checked out my outfits on instagram here are the ones from the past few days. I f you are on instagram and want to follow along or try my challenge yourself,  you can do so with the hash tag #MrsLongsStyleChallenge. I would love to see the outfits that you have styled and put together. And for those who are following along I have see some great pieces and cant wait to see the rest.

Enjoy!

Style Challenge

As the month of May is here I am starting it off with a style challenge. It is my birthday month and I want to enjoy it to the fullest.

I have created a list that I feel will best challenge myself at trying new outfits, new pieces And bring out the a new me. My challenge this month is full of bright bold colours, as I love them but tend to stick to the grays and blacks as they are easy to pair and find in my closet. I have also added some prints and patters so I can take my self out of the neutral zone no solids. I also want to accessorize as much as possible.

This challenge may also want to take me out and do a little spring shopping as I may need to update my closet as some days I’m not so sure I have the outfit in there. and it hasn’t really been up dated in a few years as I tend to purchase more for my boys now then myself.

I hope this month of challenges starts off my 32nd year with new adventures, dreams and creations.

If you would like to see the outfits I will be putting together, follow me on instagram as that it where my creations will be displayed.

you can find me under the user name mrslongslifestyle and I will be using the #MrsLongsStyleChallenge

Bright Whites

As spring has finely arrive in the city of Toronto I feel the need to bring out my white pants. Yes I have been wanting to wear them all winter and I really should have as winter whites look amazing, I just didn’t have it in me. Well now I do and I have found my inspiration to do so.
As I was spending a little time pinning on one of my favorite sites (I may spend a little to much time on there.) I found some amazing outfits with white pants. One stood out at me, as if felt like I could recreate it as I had similar clothing in my closet and looks office appropriate.

This outfit was perfect for me to try and make it my own. Spring style at it finest I think so here is my recreation on how I have style a similar looking piece.

Enjoy!

A Spring Start

Hello again I feel I should be saying as it has been so long. My March was jammed packed full of life evens and my April is off to the same start.

As I never got to do a post for the month of March here it is in review.
I had an amazing March. If you follow me on instagram you may all ready know this, as I have posted a few pictures there. For some reason I always find time for a quick update as I have a little love for instagrm and a life full of pictures.
My month started off with a wonderful week with my family to the in Cancun Mexico. The place was just beautiful and great for our whole family. There where things for the kids to do everyday. The pool was great as we spent most of our week there and we met a lot of great people. My husband and I could not have asked or wished for a better time. We are already trying to plan our trip back next year.

My month was also full of a few different outfit changes. Now that the season spring has arrived I am hoping to have a better verity of colours and style. The problem I have been having is the calendar is saying it’s spring but I have to say here in Toronto it hasn’t felt to much like it. I could really use some more warmer days as I would really like to get rig of the socks and pull out the flats. I know I really could but I am one of those people that just cant get warm and once my feet are cold that is it an I am done for the day.
so as April is here please send some warm beautiful weather our way so I can put away the boots and bring out the flats and enjoy some good choice in style and fashion as I am a little tired of the winter wardrobes.

Weekend Getaway!

I would like to thank some lovely ladies for putting together a bachelorette weekend get away. It was a day at the Scandinave Spa in Blue Mountain where we relaxed and enjoys a much needed massage and some beautiful baths. It was a very relaxing morning.
After or morning at the spa we headed over to the Village where we checked in to the Westin Hotel to clean our selfs up for a nice dinner out. We ate at a delicious restaurant called Copper Blues in the heart of the villages. After dinner we end our night off in our suite with some fun & games, lots of wine spritzers and plenty of great conversations had by all. It was a night of celebration for a beautiful lady I will soon call my “Sister”. It was a wonderful weekend away!

To the spa I wore: Denim top: H&M / Leggings: Walmart / Shoes: True Religion /Scarf: Target Canada

To dinner I wore: Sweater: Winners / Jeans: Forever21 / Boots: Old Navy / Bracelets: Aldo / Necklace: Forever21

Thursday!

Here is Thursdays work wear. I wish I could take better pictures but I’m finding the time quite difficult between juggling two kids, a job and a hobby (blogging) that I’m very interested in.
I would love some time to take some better pictures, but as I am my photographer and model and have two busy body’s around at all time is just not the easiest. I have tried to take some pictures once they have gone to bed it’s just the lighting is not on my side so this is what I have ended up with. I promise I will keep trying and find new ways to work/photograph.
If any one out there is going through the same thing as I am, I would love some ideas on how you balance your life/work/hobby and how you make it work.

Gray Days

It’s Tuesday and I am feeling a little gray….. Well my outfit is.
This dress I could not pass up. I purchased it last February when I was down in florida for $10. It was a great deal and a perfect piece for our up and down, hot and cold weather we have been having.
It is the perfect fall dress and I paired it with a set of warm leggings to keep my legs warm on the first full day of fall.
I have been waiting a while to bring out this comfy dress but now that fall is officially here I cant see a better outfit to bring in the season.
