Just because the sun is refusing to show itself, doesn't mean we still can't get excited about Spring/Summer accessories! With the extra time mother nature is giving us to amp up our wardrobes, MAD has put together some 'must have' items to complete your seasonal outfits, including a featured striped skirt! 

Our first segment we focused on key accessories such as a good quality pair of sunglasses like our new PANDA shades, also cross body bags, statement necklaces and much more! To listen in on Nicola and Courtney's conversation click on the link below!

(PANDA styles available here, fedoras available here, cross body's available here, necklaces available in store, scarves available in store, printed totes available here)
This isn't the first time we cover stripes and capitalize on it's versatility but we still love to show you ways to reinvent a classic! In this portion of our segment we styled the same skirt in 3 functional ways: 
1) Casual everyday comfort
2) Workplace chic with a colourful blouse and neutral blazer and 
3) A playful mix of prints for a fun night out 

Watch these outfits in action as Nicola covers these easy to adapt styles for your closet!

We've had a lot of excitement since our last Instagram post with a ton of celebrations packed into April and continuing on into the month of May that we are so excited to share with all of you! 

To kick off April the MAD Team toasted to Jen's one year anniversary working for Mad About Style with a familiar 'clang' of champagne flutes and many, many tasty treats at Joey's restaurant. 
(You can expect to find us here after we have events or extremely long days of work that without a doubt requires a definite 
de-stressing period, a necessity in our opinion) 

Following, another big party was brewing but this one was kept a surprise till it's unveil a weekend towards the end of April. Ryan, Nicolas husband after weeks of planning, had organized a surprise party for her champagne birthday with all of Nicola's close friends and family. Able to keep it under wraps, she hadn't the slightest clue until suspicion grew when he sat her in the back set of the truck and blind folded her on the way home from dinner...He took her for a drive confusing the usual routes to their home where we all waited for their entrance. Ryan even made sure to carry her up the driveway and into the house to ensure that she really had no idea where she was! 

Needless to say, the party was a huge success and it truly was such a beautiful night filled with love that started with a large romantic gesture followed by some tears of joy that lead to dance offs and lots of laughter.  
May, although not quite over, there were yet some thrilling experiences to share! We finally can also enjoy the outdoors with the beautiful weather here to stay! May undoubtedly has given everyone a boost of energy we all desperately needed now that we can look forward to the summer heat and time spent outside on patios and cabins! 
We had a night planned in May for months in advance...Some of you may not have heard, but Nicola was nominated to win Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award from the WBOM (Women Business Owners of Manitoba) that came as a huge surprise but honor to Nicola and everyone involved in the Mad About Style Boutique! WBOM created an extravagant gala event at the Winnipeg Convention Centre where we got decked out in fancy gowns and indulged in a limo service. And although she did not win, we still applaud Nicola for her hard work and for her incredible determination to create what Mad About Style is today! We celebrated into the night continuing on to 529's lounge where we shared good conversation and more champagne...a flawless evening to congratulate this deserving woman! 

We are so looking forward to the summertime not only for the weather but for projects in the works and more nights to celebrate to come! We hope everyone is enjoying their Spring and stay tuned for more fun posts! xx

 The colour white...We all admire it's presence and looks fantastic when seen, but a lot of us shy away because either we are accident/stain prone or we just don't know how to work with it, rather, have it work for us! Giving her valued insight, Nicola gives us the scoop last TGIFashion Friday with Breakfast Television on how to claim this shade in both the "black and white" trend as well as strictly white separates! 
White is making a big display this spring/summer and if you do not already have your favourite styles and pieces ready, take a cue from Nicola as she talks about the classic skinny jean and wide leg trouser! It's important to feel comfortable in any type of clothing you own, so if white still makes you feel uneasy, try finding a shape of pant that will flatter your figure and personal style OR opt for another white staple such as a blazer! 
Listen in on Nicola and Courtney in our first segment as they talk the colour white:

Mint blouse available here // Striped mint knit available here 
// Mint cross body bag available here // Yoga Jeans available in store
With the two most common and popular shades of the entire colour palette, our options are pretty much endless! From your basics tees and blouses to geometric cut outs and timeless prints, you can really get creative! For our second segment we channeled classic looks in both a pant and dress style option. Watch and listen as Nicola takes us through a classic ensemble to a trendy look for you to take inspiration this season:

Black blouse available here // Sand tote available here 
// Striped shift dress available in store // Black cross body bag available here 
// Yoga Jeans available in store 

Have a great week!

This Sunday May 12th, we honour one very special person in our lives, our moms! A day dedicated to spending time with your families and the women we truly appreciate for all they have done and given to us. This Mother's Day, how ever you choose to celebrate, Mad About Style also comes prepared with gift and great wardrobe ideas! With the nice weather that FINALLY arrived we are all so inspired by the bright colours and pastels we can finally debut outdoors in the sunshine.
1. A classic white jean will never fail with your favourite blouse! Add some jewellery and heels to dress up your look and you've created a simple yet formal outfit to take you from day to night. Us MAD girls love this pastel lilac blouse available online here with our tonal jewelled necklace available online here! If you have not yet found a staple white jean to infiltrate your summer wardrobe, this Yoga Jean is not only so comfortable but it's thicker material also takes away any sheerness you may fear with a light coloured bottom (available in store, $119.00)
2. Dressing up does not mean you have to go all out! A simple dress with the right accessories can have a formal feel without being too over the top. At Mad About Style we love our shift dresses (colours, patterns you name it we've most likely had it). They have a great simple, streamlined cut perfect as a backdrop to build your outfit! This coral shift dress has a beautiful colour that pops which we paired with subdued nudes to soften the look. Shift dresses also look great with flats if you choose not to go with a heel! Find our shift dress online here, along with our tote and wedges! 
And finally, the gift to go along on your Mothers Day plans, Tiber River Naturals has promotions this month to pamper the woman in your life with manicures and pedicures or a relaxing facial! Visit one of their two locations or visit their website for more gift ideas and contact information. 

We hope everyone enjoys their Mothers Day!

One of our very own lakes has been nominated and declared Threatened Lake of the Year for 2013? It's true, Lake Winnipeg which was once known as one of the ten largest fresh water lakes in the World is now considered the World's most threatened lake with it's rapid increase in toxic materials! This is grave news to us Manitoban's who have enjoyed our summers along side one of our famous beaches
Lending a hand to the Lake Winnipeg crisis is Tiber River Naturals, who will be donating one dollar with every hand soap sold to the Lake Winnipeg Foundation. Tiber River has dedicated their resources to develop products with natural ingredients that help keep your body and the environment safe and these foaming hand soaps are just one of the many environmentally friendly products they offer! 
Help Tiber raise money for this devastating disaster by popping into one of their two locations and picking up one or three of their deliciously scented soaps!
