Sweet Pants


Top: Young Fabulous & Broke (similar) | Pants: Sweet Pants | Choker: Beth Godfrey (Sold at Canopy Blue)

I’m always on the hunt for new comfy sweatpants that are still cute. I found these Sweet Pants in a blue army print that I’m in love with. They’re super comfortable but you can also be caught wearing them out of the house.

Parker Pants

Hi everyone! I’ve been so busy with my first year of law school but don’t worry the blog is back! I had my fair share of travelling this summer and am ready to share with you some city “necessities” along with some new fall looks. I’m loving these high waisted Parker pants with big flare bottoms. I had a hard time picking a top to match because all of my black tops worked with it. Such an easy pant to wear and throw on to dress up. If you’re in the Toronto area make sure to check them out at Canopy Blue.

Summer Season?

Well, I thought I was about to skip my first winter in Chicago but it seems like that all changed this past weekend. It was the most bipolar weather I have ever witnessed. There truly were all four seasons in one day; there was a snowstorm then sun with warm weather and back to snowing within the minutes. A little snow won’t stop me from believing summer is almost here though! I thought I would share with you some of my favorite bikinis for all of you out there starting to plan your summer vacations. I have a serious bikini problem and can’t wait for this weather to warm up so I can start buying some more!

Barristers’ Ball


I’m back!!! I took quite an extended break from blogging since I just started my first year of law school in the fall. So what better than to have my first post be about my law school ball. The evening was spent at the Chicago History Museum and for the first time in a long time I was able to wear a gown. It’s basically reliving the glory days of high school prom but this time with an open bar!

Last week was very special since it was my mom’s birthday!! We had a cute little brunch at our house and obviously had to go all out for dessert with this Studio 54 themed cake. Not only did it look beautiful but this red velvet and coconut cake tasted just as good. My favorite dish (besides the cake) was the gravlax on a sweet potato pancake with lemon mustard crème fraiche. Here is a similar recipe that I found online for you to try at home.

Hi! Welcome to the Blair Necessities. I recently graduated from the University of Southern California in sunny Los Angeles. Growing up in Toronto and Florida it was a big change for me to move out to the west coast and I am eternally grateful that I did. The city has so much to offer and as I move on to the next chapter of my life I find myself wanting to make sure that LA will always be a part of it. Perfect weather, best restaurants and great people, what more is there to ask for. With some free time after I graduated I decided to start The Blair Necessities as a way to display my unique fashion style that has evolved from the many places I have been able to experience. The Blair Necessities will include all things from fashion, food and travel. Hope you enjoy!

xoxo Blair
