...... we are moving to Canada!

It has been a long road to get to this point, but the stars started to align in so many ways we never thought possible. The dreams we had, the dreams we have been working so hard to get to, they are becoming reality NEXT month. We still have to pinch ourselves every once in a while to make sure aren't dreaming anymore and this is actually happening! 


why Canada?

My entire family lives in British Columbia, Canada. I was born and raised in central BC, Okanagan, where my family still is. After Stephen and I decided to get married we knew it would be a goal to one day move to BC and continue to raise our family. 

what will we miss about Arizona?

Oh there are so many things! Most importantly we are going to miss Stephen's family! His parents and one of his brothers (and his family!) live in Arizona. We can't wait for them to come visit us in Canada! Other things we will miss: TARGET!!! What will I do without target?! The variety of restaurants and for Stephen all his fast food restaurants he loves so much. I am going to miss the beautiful desert and sun everyday, but we are excited to have actual seasons. We will also miss the the easy accessibility to almost everything being here in a huge city. It will be an adjustment going to a small town,  dealing with weather issues, and learning to cook each night but we are up for the challenge!


what does this mean for C&B?

As most of my blog content is focused around Fashion and Style I am going to do my best to try and keep that up...however the mall in our new town is not very mall-ish. The closest actual mall is an hour from me, and the closest Nordstrom is 4 hours... what!!! So I know there will be some adjustments in this area as well. I am going to do my best to give updates on how the move is going for us, our life getting settled in a new area, and all other parts of life. So I ask that you stay with me and be patient as we take on this adventure and see how the blog plays along!

what about my Stesha Jordan Photography company?

Yes, that will continue! I am excited to already be working as soon as we arrive. The Okanagan (the area of BC we will be moving) is gorgeous and their wedding industry is huge! As much as I am going to miss the beautiful desert landscape, I am excited to be able to photograph lakes side weddings, wineries, and the incredible forest. You can follow along on that journey as well if you would like here on my website or here on instagram! Will I be back to Arizona?! Heck YES! For all of my amazing clients in Arizona I will be retuning twice a year, Fall and Spring to still capture your special moments. My Fall dates are already book, so email me for booking info: steshajordanphotography@gmail.com 


Thank you all for being such amazing and loyal readers of Classic & Bubbly! It has been amazing to write over the years and share my life with you all. I am even more excited to share this huge adventure that we, as a family are taking on! If you have any question about moving countries we have quickly become experts haha! The process has been long, tiring, and stressful but the hard part is over (well half way over!) and the fun part is about to begin!

3 Spring must have items
Friday, April 7, 2017


jeans (old - similar) // shoes (under $60!) // top // bag (under $50!) // earrings c/o

One of the goals I had when building my wardrobe was to buy staple items I could mix and match with often.  I have found if I invest in a few items that I love, I can add little new items here and there each season to spruce up my looks. This outfit has 3 of my 'must have' items:

pants and shorts are a must have for my closet. long jeans are versatile and can be worn through all 4 seasons (winter white !) and white denim shorts are a go to for me during both Spring and Summer!

2. comfy pair of wedges
I am a bargain shopper but I am all about comfort. these  cognac wedges are the knock off version and are only $59.00! they are super comfy and literally go with every outfit possible!

3. a natural colored crossbody
I love light and airy summer colors so a nude, blush, cream colored bag is a necessity! like this one which is only $44!



Once I have found my to go items, it has been so much easier (and quicker!) throwing together outfits. I don't struggle with, "i have nothing to wear" nearly as much as I used too! Yes, of course I am always looking for something newer or brighter but for the most part once I have my staple items in my wardrobe it is all about mixing and matching!

Happy Friday,

SHOP THE LOOK:


casual spring outfit
Wednesday, April 5, 2017


shorts (old - similar) // top (comes in 5 colors) // jacket (old - similar) // bag (under $50!) // shoes // necklace c/o 

How pretty in the blush pink cami?! I bought it in white last year and literally wear it all. the. time! It is so versatile and easy to just throw on. When I saw it came in blush (also comes in 5 additional colors!) I bought it right away. With Spring in full swing and easy around the corner this pink is a perfect option for the season!


I also picked up some adidas (I know, everyone has them!) but althesure shoes are sure comfy! As I get older (man this body is feeling in lately) I find support for my feet is crucial. So not only are these shoes so cute, I wear them instead of sandals for a little more support. Plus, the entire family has them now so we look extra cute together ;) 

Thanks so much for reading today, I hope everyone's have a wonderful week so far! xx

SHOP THIS LOOK:


there's a tiger on my top
Monday, April 3, 2017


jeans (old - similar) // top c/o // earrings c/o // bag c/o // shoes (comes in 5 colors)

My favorite part of this outfit is the tiger centered right in the middle of this fabulous embroidered top! Every time I put it on, a smile automatically appears on my face, I mean how can it not?! Plus, I get to pair it with these fun tassel earnings which also come in 18 total colors!!


Do you remember these block heels?! I wore them a ton last year and good news, they are back in stock just in time for Spring and Summer. I actually picked mine up at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (they sold out almost instantly!) and wore them non stop last Fall. They are back and now available in 5 total colors, I have had my eyes on the Navy as well!

Sorry I have been so MIA, life has been crazy busy! If you are new to reading the blog you may not know I am also a wedding photographer here in Arizona (Stesha Jordan Photography) and this Spring season has booked back to back.  I promise I will try and get back to a regular posting schedule ASAP :)

SHOP THE OUTFIT:


OTS Maxi
Wednesday, March 15, 2017


dress c/o // shoes (old - similar) // bag (under $40!) // necklace c/o // sunglasses

I love, love comfy sundresses for summer time! With the temperatures already in the 90's here in Arizona (sorry for the rest of the country who is getting extreme snow!) summer heat is in full swing. I love the doubled sided slits in this dress, allows for so much comfort and room to move. Sometimes I feel a little trapped in maxi dresses but not this one! The dress is much nicer quality than the price tag suggests, its only $18!


I also have my go to crossbody that I picked up last year and is back in stock. Its only $36 and literally goes with every outfit I own! I have been trying to stay in a more neutral color pallet while using the same accessories, sometimes 20 bags hanging in the closet gets a bit extreme.
