Somewhere in between Winter and Spring I’m really not sure what to put on my body right now. With a brief window of warm weather last weekend I took the opportunity to sport some cropped trousers. Because the wind is still chilly I am over the moon with this super cozy over-sized cardigan! Also I want to add that this sleeveless black blouse From Banana Republic is so simple, but yet in the brief times that I’ve worn it recently I received SO many compliments on it; I can already tell that both will be on high rotation. 

I also want to draw your attention to this fab necklace! It’s from a local online shop based out of Truro Nova Scotia! 🙂 The idea for Beck and Boosh arose from a common passion for jewelry and all things fashion.  Co-owners
Rebecca LaPointe and Miriah Kearney couldn’t any sweater if they were made of sugar, and they are not only next door neighbors with two young boys
each, but are also both teachers who grew up in Truro, Nova Scotia. Both teachers! Be still my beating heart 🙂 Having gone through the Education program myself I am growing more and more fond of these girls by the second.

Adorable and affordable these girls are doing some great work! Products are sourced
directly to avoid the ‘middle-man’ mark up. Most of Beck and Boosh jewelry comes
from India and a small selection from Korea and China. They
import each piece and take time choosing each product, getting to know
the manufacturers and the ethics behind the goods. Beck and Boosh deal with very
small manufacturers, where products are made, bought and sold fairly.
You can check out their blog to see some pics of where we buy and what the buying process looks like (http://blog.beckandboosh.com).

I’m over the moon with my Khaleesi Inspired necklace (available here and also available in pink and gold), and you should see people’s face when I tell them the price! I’ve been wearing mine constantly since I got it! I’ve been wearing it with mint green, ivory, and basically anything I can pretty much get away with! Thanks so much girls for picking out such a great piece for me I love it! 

Happy Friday!!

    Looking like a real North Ender in this getup! 😉 Love the boots, pants, bag combo! And Loving the new hair (I know it's been a little while, but I've yet to see it in person, so I'm just getting used to it through pictures) :P.

    Those pants! Love. At first I thought they were just basic black but the dark plaid is even better, it's subtle but such a beautiful detail.
    xox,
