Blue Winter | Wear Your Favourite Dresses In The Cold

Many of you gave high praises for the Old Navy Luxe Round Hemmed tees, and I am so glad I ordered mine. They are easy to dress up of down, layer or wear alone. Plus they come in many beautiful, neutral colours!

Do you have a favourite piece of clothing that no matter what season you always wear it?

I stumbled upon this dress last fall, and I nearly took it back because I was on the fence about it. Well, it is now one of my favourite clothing items!

It has a peek-a-boo back making it perfect for summer, but like I said it’s a favourite so I have worn it on repeat this Winter with duster cardigans and patterned sweaters.

I’ll admit I’m late to the layering dresses and t-shirt fad but I’m loving it! If you haven’t tried it yet you need to – it is so comfy and not at all awkward or uncomfortable.

P.S I order the “long” versions and they are the perfect length for anyone 5′ 9″ and over.

8 Things To Do In Gilbert, Arizona With Kids

8 Things To Do In Gilbert, Arizona With Kids

My family loves visiting Arizona. You have the heat of Mexico with the comfortable amenities of home all in one location!

Not only is it hot in Arizona, it is relatively inexpensive to fly from Canada (if you just bring 1 or no checked bags). 

For all 5 of us to fly, that would be 2 adult tickets and 2 child tickets and 1 infant on lap ticket, we could fly round trip for $1150 CAD. Compared to a family vacation to Pueto Rico which the flights would cost us $2300 CAD.

But in this blog post I’m not sharing why we love going to Arizona, I want to share what we did in Gilbert, Arizona during our last couple trips!

Fun Activities For Families To Do Around Gilbert, AZ

  1. Grab a coffee & tour Agritopia: I don’t know how to describe the Gilbert Agritopia other than it is such an unique community! And I wish we had known about the tours of the Gilbert Agritopia (they happen every 3rd Wednesday of the month at 10:00am), but we still were able to appreciate the beauty of their Biblical Garden while sipping on our “monsoon slushes”. It’s a stunning place to grab a coffee and enjoy a nice walk with your children.
  2. Swimming: It may sound simple but if you can find an AirBnB or hotel with a pool your kids will be entertained all week. Fortunately, Matt’s parents have a vacation home in Arizona (our girls call it the “pool house”) and the pool is where our girls spend most of their day.
  3. Sports Game: Thankfully the Phoenix area has so many sport teams and games to watch – there is baseball, hockey, football, volleyball, basketball. There are so many options depending on your budget!
  4. Top Golf: I was hesitant about taking the girls to Top Golf the first time, but it ended up being an awesome time! We have nothing like Top Golf in Canada let alone Edmonton. It’s similar to a driving range but it’s a fun twist on whacking a ball. At the time Abigail was 1 year old and Annaliese was 3 years old, we had Abigail sit in the stroller the whole time and then Annaliese took a turn hitting the ball. TIP: Request the lowest level for peace of mind with younger kids. 
  5. Outlet Malls: We loved walking around the outdoor Phoenix Premium Outlet mall or San Tan Village during the weekdays because it’s basically empty. The girls could walk around freely while Matt & I window shopped or stopped for a coffee.
  6. Indulge In Amazing American Fast Food: Let’s name off all the delicious restaurants that the US has and Canada does not – Chick Fil-A, Dunkin Donuts, Sonic’s Drive-Thru, P.F Changs, In-N-Out, Jack N’ The Box, White Castle. Sometimes I wish I lived closer to the border…
  7. Stock Pile BoSa Donuts Every Morning: I had never heard about BoSa Doughnuts and I don’t know if they are a Phoenix thing or an America thing, but they are beyond delicious! Our top picks are the apple fritters, plain old fashion, and glazed twist.
  8. Hiking in the Desert: Hiking in Arizona is completely different than hiking in Canada. But it’s an awesome unique experience! Our favourite trails close to Gilbert are in San Tan Mountain Region Park. There are trails for all levels of experience and difficulty.

What’s your favourite family vacation spot?

Mom Style | Best Button Down Blouses For Breast-Feeding

It’s one thing to finally fit into regular, non-maternity clothes but when you’re still breast-feeding your closet is still limited. I have you’re back because I found you the best button down blouses for breast feeding! 

This time breast feeding my baby I discovered the wonderful invention of button down shirts instead of the option of ugly nursing shirts or hoisting up my whole shirt, we’ve all been there when you forget an undershirt and you’re sitting there with your tummy exposed. It feels vulnerable and uncortable, at least for me it does.

I’ve linked a few stunning button down shirts, most are 40% off right now so it’s a win!

Top Things You Need For The Perfect, Winter Day Inside

Garage Sweater Dynamite Sweater Dress Edmonton Alberta Fashion Blogger

Christmas may be over and done, but the relaxing has just begun!

During the holidays we’re so concerned with filling our schedules with busy activities, but if you’re like me and find it difficult to say no (trust me, I’m working on it), find a day or two in your week and make plans to do nothing.

Some people call it a mental health day, Matt and I call it making plans to do nothing.

I always want to feel cute, even when it’s freezing and no-one is going to see me all day – right now, I am obsessed with this sweater dress from Dynamite. Pair it with adorable knee high socks and sparkly accessories, and your outfit is complete!

Or if you’re in more of a casual mood Garage has a selection of beautiful knit sweaters – I may have bought the same sweater in all the colours on Boxing Day. If you like it a lot, why not?

A day spent snuggled up baking cookies, acoustic music playing throughout your speakers, drinking tea lattes, watching feel-good movies wrapped up in a throw in your slippers sounds perfect to me!

Frock Box Canada Edmonton Blogger Fashion WinterFrock Box Canada Edmonton Blogger Fashion WinterFrock Box Canada Edmonton Blogger Fashion WinterFrock Box Canada Edmonton Blogger Fashion WinterFrock Box Canada Edmonton Blogger Fashion Winter

As soon as I became a mom I had a personal style crisis – my body had changed and my sense of style evolved – I didn’t know what I liked to wear!

Plus it didn’t help that I dispised in-store shopping – I would be overwhelmed with the options and didn’t know what did/did not look good on my body.

But that’s what Frock Box Canada is for! You’ll have stylists who want to empower you through your clothes, they offer their boxes in size small to 3XL. They have 3 separate monthly box subscriptions: Frock Box Favourites, Frock Box Jewel, and Frock Box Gold.

Once you select your box, you will fill out an in-depth survey for your stylist to completely understand your style

Then Frock Box will send you a package of personally selected items! Depending on if you like the style and fit you will keep them or return them with the return shipping 

It’s a simple but effective system for your stylists to pick the best items for you, where you keep exactly what you want. It’s tailored to your budget, your style, and your size – for you to look and feel your best.

When I opened my package I was so excited when I pulled out this gorgeous polka-dot vest and plaid scarf! Mail day is the best, especially when it’s guaranteed to come every month with items specifically chosen for me.

Use the code HONEYANDBETTS on your first box for a $0 styling fee!

Have you ever used a personal stylist?
