Happy New Year! I hope you had a marvellous time last night, however you spent it. Since I am basically a magpie in human form, New Year’s Eve is the perfect reason to break out the sparkliest New Year’s Eve party dress I own, or more realistically, a great excuse to buy a new one.

Birthday Outfit 2: Metallic Skirt

Birthday Outfit 2: Metallic Skirt | Sara du Jour

Quick Links: Mango Metallic Skirt | Off the Shoulder Top | Black Booties | Gold Earrings

I’m such an over-the-top person, that wearing a metallic skirt and top as my *birthday outfit* felt extremely casual to me. Not a dress!? On my birthday??? Identity crisis aside, I found this gorgeous gunmetal skirt at Mango and needed it in my life. And then needed to style an outfit around it.  (more…)

The Black Velvet Birthday Dress

Black Velvet Birthday Dress | Sara du Jour

Quick Links: Black Velvet Cutout Dress | Kate Spade Bag | Gold Earrings

It’s my birthday! And this lucky lady had two birthday parties, one on Friday night, and one on Saturday. I celebrated twice last year too, because I have two major groups of friends, each with their own uniquely wonderful and hilarious group dynamic. I find it simpler and more fun to have separate events rather than trying to blend the groups together. (Plus, who doesn’t want two birthday parties!?) (more…)

Holiday Party Style: The Little Black Dress

Holiday Party Style: The LBD | Sara du Jour

Lulu’s Black DressWanderlust & Co. Earrings | Sam Edelman Heels | Nine West Clutch

I love a classic silhouette, and many of the outfits on this blog feature figure-hugging midi dresses. I think they’re beautiful on every body type, and perfect for office holiday parties – particularly if you want to dress a little more conservatively while still feeling fancy and looking great.

I love party season. Mid-November until the first of January is a dazzling whirlwind of holiday parties, my birthday, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. So many reasons to dress up! And as anyone who knows me knows – I’ll take any excuse. (more…)

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…)

Loving Lately: Spring Finds + Favorites

Loving Lately: Spring Edition

I’ve been a little off the grid the last few months (though you can always find me on Instagram), but I thought I’d return to the blogosphere to share a few of my favourite things, ranging from beauty, to fashion and tech.  (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…)

Sparkling New Year’s Eve Outfit

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…)
