Snow White Halloween Costume

Snow White Halloween Costume | Sara du Jour
I’m baaaaack! And just in time for Halloween. You didn’t think I’d miss an opportunity to play dress up, did you? I’ve dressed up as many iconic fictional females, from Holly Golightly to Lara Croft to Hermione Granger to Belle. This year, I went for the original Disney princess: Snow White. (more…)

Summer Scalloped Style Haul

Summer Scalloped Style Haul | Sara du Jour

lilac tote bag | scalloped flats | studded pumps

Happy first day of summer! This is the happiest I’ve been on a Monday for a while, because I’ve taken a vacation day, and thus have my own, private long weekend. (So #blessed.) I’m happily still lazing about in bed, snacking on grapes and watching a few Youtube videos on my iPad while I put together this blog post. (more…)

Retro White Dress Outfit + Tobi Haul

Retro White Dress Outfit + Tobi Haul | Sara du Jour

White dress c/o Tobi | Aldo kitten heels | Sole Society ‘Vivian’ sunglasses

This spring I’ve been doing something more brave than usual: I’m wearing white. I love the way white looks in an outfit, but when you’re as much of a hazard to yourself as I am, wearing it is a big risk. (more…)

Spring Style Haul: F21, Zara, + Mendocino

Spring Fashion Haul | Sara du Jour

So, I meant to post this spring style haul weeks earlier, when spring in Toronto had really just begun. Temperatures were finally warming, meaning Canadians were tentatively peeling off their parkas and poking their heads out the door. Trees were shaking off memories of snow and starting to bloom, lifting everyone’s spirits.

Cut to: today – the weather is gorgeous, and it’s just about summer. I’m running around in dresses most days! But until June 22nd, it’s still technically spring. So onwards with this (delayed) spring haul.  (more…)

Boot and Shoe Haul | Tory Burch & Aldo

Boot and Shoe Haul – Tory Burch, Jessica Simpson, & Aldo | Sara du Jour

Oh, I’ve been very bad these last few months. This boot and shoe haul is a bit delayed because of all the busyness that is the holiday season, but better late than never I suppose!

Forgive me father for I have sinned – there were too many amazing sales around Black Friday, and I am weak. This shoe haul is a collection of footwear I snagged at an amazing price the week of Black Friday, as well as a very generous Christmas present. But fear not! If you are coveting thy internet neighbour’s shoes, all of these are still currently available in stores. (more…)

My Gym Bag Essentials

My Gym Bag Essentials | Sara du Jour

When it comes to sticking to a fitness regimen, it helps to have the right gear. I know that for me, if my fitness gear is cute, I’m excited to use it and that helps me stay motivated. If you’re striving to keep to your New Year’s resolution to exercise more frequently (or at all), packing your gym bag essentials the night before makes it easier to grab it and go the next morning. And that’s means you have one less excuse to make the day-of!

I am the opposite of a morning person, so I go to the gym straight from work a few days a week. Here’s what I typically pack: (more…)

Sparkly New Year's Eve Party Outfit | Sara du Jour

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a smashing time ringing in 2016 with your friends or loves last night. Now that we’re all in bed, browsing the internet and nursing our collective hangovers, let’s talk about fashion.

New Year’s Eve is both one of my favourite nights of the year and one of my favourite nights to dress for. It is without a doubt the sparkliest holiday, and I try to take full advantage.  (more…)

Retro Glamour Little Red Dress Outfit

Retro Glamour Little Red Dress Outfit | Sara du Jour

Holiday party season continues, as does my love affair with 1950s fashion. It truly is my favourite decade for feminine style, followed closely by the 1940s. That’s why I combined a 1940s Rita Hayworth-inspired hairstyle with a 1950s Marilyn Monroe-inspired little red dress for this glamourous evening look. (more…)

Retro 1950s Christmas Party Outfit

Retro 1950s Christmas Party Outfit | Sara du Jour

*Gasp!* An outfit post! I know, it’s been a minute. But every time I do a poll asking which of my blog post types is your favourite, outfit posts seem to come out on top, so I’m doing my best to oblige. Anyway, I recently hosted a Christmas cocktail party at my apartment for some friends from the office, and since I was going all Stepford-y with the food and drinks I prepared (stay tuned for that post), I figured I’d do the same with my outfit of the evening.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s Halloween Costume

Audrey Hepburn (Holly Golightly) Breakfast at Tiffany's Halloween Costume | Sara du Jour
Halloween is one of the holidays I look forward to most each year. While many people like to embrace all things spooky and dark, I pretty much just love the excuse to dress up as one of my favourite characters. So, maybe that’s not quite the essence of Halloween, but… (more…)
