This week’s fashionista is Carissa! Carissa is a mom of 2 adorable daughters, Lily 3 and Aryn 6 months. Carissa lives in Oakville Ontario and is enjoying her mat leave time off from teaching elementary kids.

Carissa and I go way back, our parents were sailing friends and we spent many summers with our sailboats anchored together in Georgian Bay. When you spend that much time in small quarters, you get creative ideas on how to pass the time. Dying our hair random colours, taunting boys, putting on choreographed dance shows to TLC and creating odd food concoctions to name a few.


I have to mention that Carissa’s creative food menu would explain her love for creating, she makes the most amazing cakes and can make any old junky cabinet look high end.
Carissa has always loved fashion and often hits the outlets in Buffalo NY for great pieces. She has a natural effortless style and always looks fresh and beautiful.
You will often see Carissa in a leather jacket or boyfriend blazer, cute blouse or loose cardi, skinny jeans or a pair of sweetlegs leggings and a pair of over the knee boots or TOMS for the park.
I am so excited for my fabulous friend Carissa to represent my hometown and be this weeks fashionista!
