Is anyone else loving longline tops lately? I am obsessed with how the long layers play with the silhouette of a pair of denim skinnies or leather leggings. With a set of pin-pump booties and a killer bomber jacket, this look screams daytime chic.
Beyond the fact that you’re making a statement, can I mention how insanely comfortable this whole look was? I wore it day-to-night and I was happy as a clam the whole way through. I’m going to be stocking up on a ton of these from my favorite high street retailers and layering them all fall long.
If you couldn’t tell, I’m a little excited fall is here…my favorite season, I cannot wait to share more looks with y’all.
I had the most uplifting and incredible day thanks to TELUS and Free The Children’s We Day.
Beyond the once-in-a-lifetime performances and inspiring speakers, I got to spend the day meeting and chatting with youth from all over Canada who were motivated enough to volunteer their time to help others as sweat equity to experience We Day.
If I was sharing my feelings of the day with you in person, I would literally be talking over my words right now! I had the pleasure of chatting with We Day founder and speaker, Craig Kielburger and singer/musician, Francesco Yates.
Beyond being SO lovely, Francesco’s latest hit, #CallForChange, is this year’s We Day theme song.
For every video shared with the hashtag #CallForChange, TELUS will donate $10.00 to Free The Children.
Be sure to check out the video below, it’s certainly won’t disappoint and I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to participate and learn more about this amazing initiative.

Shot some looks on Saturday, which is great because I woke up SO sick on Sunday morning. This fringe dress was definitely my favorite look and so fun to shoot. I was nervous to sport it during the day but it completely complemented this oversized denim jacket and low ankle booties for a midday brunch. I love finding versatile pieces that are beyond “one use only” and this dress could easily be taken to night with a pair of killer heels and a leather jacket.
I am obsessing over navy, burgundy and burnt orange for fall and cannot wait to incorporate some bold colors into my typical black, white and charcoal grey uniform. I am currently coveting this skirt for fall and I cannot wait to add it to my collection and style it for a shoot.

Quickly snapped these pics with my papa a few weeks ago. I love the detail of this dress and it is the perfect summer shift that can easily be layered into fall and paired with black booties. I cannot believe summer is almost over and we are heading into a new season! While I will miss the long sunny days, I am secretly looking forward to leather & layers, cozy knits and over the knee boots.
What are you most looking forward to for fall? Or are you sad to see summer go?
Welcome back my lovelies! While I wanted to write a whole bunch more to kick off my first post back for fall, I’m just at a loss for words.
If you caught me over on Instagram (@lexniko) you know that I had the most wonderful European vacation but came back to some devastating news that I’m still recovering from. But that is is life and I promised myself I would keep up this blog because it is one thing that truly makes me happy, week over week and year over year. It keeps me focused and sane and I just want to keep creating fun outfits to share with you!
So today’s text will be light and I’ll continue to post and may not have much to say, but know that I am here and excited to be back. Fall is my favorite time of year and I LOVE styling looks for the season. I am eager to catch up on trends, invest in some cozy layers and just enjoy the beauty in the change of scenery.
Stay tuned for more posts and if there’s anything you want to see leave a comment below or on Instagram!

Hi guys! I know it’s been slow over here on the blog and to be honest, I’ve been trying to get a few things in order before bridesmaid duties this weekend and my trip next week (follow on Instagram and Snapchat @lexniko).
I have felt a tad uninspired lately and just haven’t been my typically positive or upbeat self. I’m not sure if I feel in flux, if I feel unfulfilled or if I’m simply sad summer is ending. I recently came across an excellent post by a favorite blogger of mine, NoteBrooke, and it really forced me to question whether this blog has run it’s course or if my heart is still in it.
I’ve constantly been waiting for this, that or the other to “happen” to kickstart some new energy into the blog but at the end of the day, I love writing and creating, there’s no way I’m ready to give it up. If I’m being truthful with myself, the only person that’s going to instil new life into this project is me and I’ve made a recent decision to focus my efforts elsewhere and it’s left me feeling a bit lost.
So I’m giving fair warning now: I’m allowing myself some time to think about where I am taking this blog and with that I’m going to take some time away from it to reflect on just that. I have always intended to inspire others and I feel like my heart hasn’t been projecting that on the page as of late. If I’m going to continue to put time in to this passion piece, I want the quality to be that of a level that I’m proud to share with all of you.
I am so thankful for my readers and I’m so thankful for all of those who follow my adventures each and every day on social media, but I’m looking forward to some time away, reflection and life outside of the internet while I figure out where my place is over on here.
I had such an awesome time at the Andy Warhol Pop Up in Toronto last week. This amazing collection of screen print art was so cool to see in person and learn more about the background of The Factory, each piece and Warhol himself. I am suddenly fascinated with learning more about this unique character and the inspiration behind his work. The exhibit is in Toronto until December 2015 so do make it a point to come and visit if you’re able to!

It’s been such a relaxing week and this weather has been perfect! Before I head off again for the August long weekend and then EUROPE (!!!) at the end of the month, I’ve been laying low and getting things organized at home. The welcomed downtime has allowed me to get in to a bit of a routine: I’ve been working out in the morning, eating dinner at home and I’ve been taking the most wonderful baths before bed.
One item that I’ve been using in the bath is JoeSCRUB. This amazing coffee-based scrub is made of 100% natural ingredients and leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated. I use it a couple nights a week and it’s so gentle and soothing, I honestly can’t get enough of it.
The team at JoeSCRUB is also offering an exclusive 25% OFF for I’m A Little readers with the code IMALITTLE25 until August 31st.
Let me know if you get your hands on this amazing scrub and what you think! Leave a comment below or on my Instagram @LEXNIKO.
This weekend was just lovely. Beyond feeling a little under the weather, I had a jam packed couple of days in the city. I brunched with a girlfriend, took in some Pan Am sports and spent my Sunday with my pup at PetSmart for National Ice Cream Day. I loved this comfy outfit I wore for the event, so I actually had my papa snap a few photos of me outside of my parents’ house. I even took in a couple movies (Trainwreck and Magic Mike XXL were both so fun!) and rounded out my weekend with Oyster Fest and Sunday night dinner with friends.
I cannot believe how much I got up to but it definitely hit me Monday as I woke up with a sore throat and cough :(. Looks like I’ll be resting up for this week and laying low…I’m off again next weekend to Montreal for Osheaga so until then I’m going to do my best to relax and take it easy.
Hope you had a great weekend and here’s to a fabulous week xx!
This summer is in full swing and with that came some major heat! I don’t know about you but for me nothing beats the summer heat quite like ice cream. My friends & I have a standing Sunday night date for a scoop or two, but this Sunday is extra special because I’m delighted to get my furry friend, Choco in on the fun.
I’m thrilled to share that I’ll be celebrating National Ice Cream Day this Sunday, July 19, at 12 PM at PetSmart Richmond Hill (225 High Tech Road). Pet parents can bring their pups to this PetSmart PetsHotel location to receive a four-ounce complimentary serving of dog-safe ice cream, Treat Time.
This delicious frozen treat is traditionally offered as an add-on service to sweeten pets’ stays at the PetSmart PetsHotel whether they are there overnight or just for a few hours of Doggie Day Camp. Choco loves his snack when I bring him to the PetSmart PetsHotel in Richmond Hill for a little day care visit or hair cut.
I hope you can stop by to get a free scoop from 12:00 to 4:00 pm! Choco and I will be hanging out from 12:00 to 1:00 pm so if you’re in the neighbourhood, stop by, say hi and snap some pics with us!
We can’t wait to meet you!
See you on Sunday and follow along on Instagram @LEXNIKO for more dets!
