A couple quick snaps I took outside of Wayne Gretzky’s last night. Toronto is alive with sports love right now and that makes me oh so happy! The Raptors are in the playoffs, the Blue Jays are getting in the swing of things and well we just won’t talk about the Leafs.
I happily went to the Jays game last night and then popped back over to 99′s to catch the end of the basketball game and I am pleased to report both teams won. I can’t wait to see how the rest of the playoff series pans out so expect many sports references in the week’s to come. I promise we’ll still be covering fashion over here but I love when I can combine a more casual style with one of my favourite topics!
Are you a sports fan or is the subject completely boring to you? Let me know!

It was an amazing long weekend in the city! Easter is such a special time for me, I feel it’s signifies change of the new season and an opportunity to start anew. So with the sun shining and sweater weather a thing of the past, I happily sported this outfit to Easter Sunday dinner with my family. I have been obsessed with these Ann Taylor blazers - they are the perfect spring layer - light enough for the warming weather but necessary for chillier evenings.
I also happily sported my new shoes that I was eyeing forever and finally took the plunge! These shoesies so remind me of 101 Dalmatians’ and of course they’re all about that black & white trend.
Ahh spring is in the air and I could NOT be happier! Finally Happy Monday Littles!

It was another excellent weekend in the city! The weather always helps but I also found I made the most of the days and even found some time to relax. I was happy to catch up with friends I haven’t seen in a while, enjoy the sunshine and sneak in a few delicious meals. I actually don’t think I’ve laughed so hard over an entire weekend in a long time, and it was true to the old adage that Laughter Truly is the Best Medicine.
I’ve been heavy into my Pinterest research for my move, looking at how best to decorate the living and dining areas of the new condo as they are one long, open unit. SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME . Follow me on Pinterest here to see my inspiration ideas.
We also have the Easter long weekend coming up and I’m thrilled about some extra time off and spending a few days with my love, who I have been missing terribly for weeks! I was lucky enough to get some inspiration from the Easter Bunny over at Ferrero Rocher on how to supply family and friends with a few chocolate treats. I happily got in the spirit by enjoying some chocolates over the weekend and was quite inspired by this post here for ways to add Easter elements around the house.
I’m hoping the weather continues to cooperate as we head into Friday but either way, I don’t think there’s much that can bring down my spirits after the amazing memories I made over the past few days and all of the excitement to look forward to over the long.
Happy Monday xo!
Just a few inspirations from this week. I’ve recently been obsessed with color and brights ~ probably has a little to do with the fact that the sun’s been out for longer than four or five hours a day! I just want to experience colour and sparkle in everything I encounter, like the beet salad above from Gilead Wine Bar to the Nike’s below. I’m finally seeing beauty in any moment, which is evident in my recent love for Nancy Meyers’ set décor to matching fruit loops & accessories and plain & simple pastel pairings. I also was happy to receive a few beautiful pieces c/o Jewlz From Lineve, which I cannot wait to style. The beautiful bauble piece below is the perfect way to welcome spring and tie in some sparkle into my look.
I am coming out of my black, white & grey shell ~ ready to embrace colour in a BIG way! What are some of your favourite ways to get ready for spring with colour? Let me know xo! And check out more colourful cures on my Instagram @LEXNIKO.
Spring is finally here in the city! I am loving the longer days and the sunshine makes my hectic schedule a little more pleasant. It has been bare bones on the blog and that’s due to the face I have recently moved from my place in the city back north for a month. I’m in the process of finding a new place and admittedly my day job, a long distance relationship and trying to move and find a new home has left me pooched and something had to give.
I am truly looking forward to my time at home and it hasn’t been long but I am already noticing a benefit from being here. There’s something serene in not feeling like I must attend every event or social gathering that I typically say yes to, as everything’s just around the corner when you live in the middle of the city. I know how often I say this but I always feel like I need to getaway and recharge my batteries and what better place to go than home?
I’m hoping this vanity doesn’t wear off but I know I eventually have to head back downtown on my own (wahh I want my mumsie). As this is the simplest of facts, it was nice to recently discover a holistic oasis within the city at Chi Junky. Chi Junky is a wellness centre and private yoga studio in Toronto. I was lucky to visit for a one-on-one tour with owner, Rachelle Wintzen and discovered so much about my health and the importance of taking the time to care for yourself.
Rachelle took me through Iridology, which is a non-invasive tool that allows you to discover health flaws and features through the eyes. It was incredible to see what was working well and what could improve in my body, simply by viewing patterns and colours in my iris. I am happy to report that so far things look pretty good but there was definitely room for improvement and Rachelle helped me put together a plan to ensure that I work towards fixing certain aspects of my health.
If you’re in the city I suggest you stop by and chat with one of the lovely Junkys. I feel great about the changes I’ve made and look forward to seeing the benefits even further as I continue down a happier and healthier path this spring.
If you follow my Instagram then you saw my quick little jaunt to Montreal a few weeks back. I was fortunate to work with the StyleLab Montreal team to visit with a number of Canadian fur designers and style our own Look Of The Day (#LOTD) using pieces from our collaborators.
I absolutely loved styling my looks and it was amazing to work with the beautiful model and layer in brilliant pieces from these incredible designers. The full outfit details for each look are here and there are some photos below for you to enjoy!
