Livelovesara About Page Sara and Daughter Merle

I’m Sara. The woman obsessed with trying to build the perfect wardrobe.

I am also an extreme bibliophile, a hopeful traveller, trying my hardest to learn french, and a mom to two girls. I have been married for 14 years to Thomas aka Tom who is a former musician and now works in the tv/movie industry near Toronto, Ontario, Canada where we located to several years ago.

What you will find on here: My obsessive determination to build myself the perfect wardrobe. I log my daily outfits on my Instagram and What I Wore posts. Weekly I answer packing light requests via my Packing Light Series. In this series I attempt to put together the perfect travel capsule wardrobe for each person based on style, colour palettes and preferred brands. These capsules then get posted to Pinterest where they get 6.3 million monthly views across the boards. Weekends are for Weekly Reads and Finds, where I share any good articles, and sales/shopping finds that I have come across that week.

I am not a photographer and as a stay at home mom who spends a huge part of her day homeschooling her two children I don’t have a lot of extra time to take pictures. The snapshots of my life are actual snapshots that are quickly taken while we are running around or running out the door. While you won’t get beautiful photography on here you will get the real me, and my promise maintain that realness with you.

Sara xoxo

  1. Stoked for your site Sara. I have been friends with Naomi Brewer since we were 18 she told me about your page. ♡ Thanks for keeping it real! Aloha Ona

  2. I always keep it real which is probably why I don’t have a shit ton of friends 😉 I’m still working the kinks out on here and trying to figure out what direction I am going with it. Thanks for stopping by! Sara

  3. Stumbled across your site via something from Pinterest and I love it. Going to Italy this fall so your list is perfect! Can’t wait to put it all together on my over-50 bod! Thanks

    • Yay! I love to hear when a list is helpful 🙂 I hope you have a fantastic time in Italy!

  4. Hi Sara! I found you on Pinterest right before my trip to Tulum. I love your style and packing lists, inspiring and helpful! Our style is similar and age :)) Keep on keeping on!

    • Thank you! I love when people find the lists useful, and I love that we are similar tastes and ages. It makes me feel better about not dressing like what a “mom” is supposed to dress like 🙂

  5. Hi, I found your site through Pinterest and I love all of your travel lists! As a 30-something Mom, I second guess all of my outfits (too young? Too mom-ish?). I’m looking forward to catching up on your posts.

    • Thanks Sarah! I use to second guess everything too for many years trying to fit in to that “appropriate mom wear” box and decided to say screw it a few years back. I just dress as me and pick things based more on feeling good and myself in them rather than trying to wear what someone else thinks a mom should dress like. Just be you and you can’t really go wrong. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  6. I found your new teacher capsule wardrobe on Pintrest. As a retired educator, I was curious about what you would recommend. You did a great job. I also liked that the clothes were not size 2. Great suggestions. When I taught primary grades, the standard teacher wardrobe included an oversized, drop waist, dress with an apple on the chest. I never dressed like that. I wanted to look professional in things that could be easily washed. Thank you for creating a professional looking wardrobe that doesn’t break the bank.
