MY STYLE: SPRING DRESS LOVE

Happy Friday, my lovely Peaches! Not only is Easter weekend finally upon us, but it’s the first weekend that feels like Spring is here to stay. And that means more fashion posts coming your way (because let’s face it – cold, winter weather does not inspire me).

Today I am featuring one of my all-time favourite dresses I’ve ever found at Your Big Sister’s Closet. I’m generally drawn to skater style dresses, as they fit my body type perfectly, and when I saw this cheerful piece hanging in the store I went straight for it. Ever since its purchase, I’ve worn this dress for all occasions; parties, brunch, shopping, day trips, even while writing this blog post…it’s super versatile. I often pair it with tights and a bolero, but as the weather warms up, I lose the bolero and add a colourful necklace for an extra punch of whimsy. If I’m daring I will wear coloured hosiery instead of tights, but only if I plan on doing a lot of sitting (#tallgirlproblems).  I’ll be a sad gal the day this dress starts to fade and has to be retired.

What’s your favourite Spring piece? Let me know in the comments below!

MY STYLE: SPRING FAVOURITES

Happy first week of spring, everyone! With last week’s dumping of snow, I thought we would never get here. But alas, the sun is staying out a few hours longer, the birds are chirping, and Easter is just around the corner. To get in the mood for the season, I thought I would share a few of my favourite spring fashion pieces.

Flats: Flats are my fashion best friend. And although I wear them year round, I’m always excited when spring rolls around because I can finally wear them without hearing people ask “Aren’t your feet cold?” It’s a beautiful thing! Spring is also when I typically refresh my collection with a few new pairs. To me, spring cleaning is all about making room for pretty new things in your closest, am I right?

Cheerful Colours: With the amount of black I own, you might think this is an odd choice. But I do love a brightly coloured piece, and the warm spring weather always seems like the perfect time to add some cheer to your wardrobe. My go-to spring colours are usually pinks, peaches and oranges, with the odd splash of teal in the mix. What are yours?

The Shades: With the days getting longer and the sun getting brighter, you can’t forget to protect your pretty peepers. I tend to gravitate towards cat-eye or vintage inspired frames, as they add a little fun and whimsy to your look. And when you’ve been brunching too hard on a sunny Sunday morning with your gal pals, throw on a pair and nobody will be the wiser. Insta-style!

GOLDEN GLOBE STYLE: METALLIC SPARKLE

Roll out the red carpet because awards season has arrived! There is something I love about the Golden Globes that I don’t feel for the Oscars. The Globes are an evening of glamour, but with less of the pomp and fluff, more fun, (seemingly) more enjoyment, and people usually say hilarious stuff as the champagne flows. It’s my kinda night!

Like the majority of viewers, I also love watching for the fashion. I particularly enjoy seeing what trends emerge. This year, Emma Stone took the trend of metallic sequins and made it truly sparkle. Not only did her look appear effortless, but I absolutely loved the whimsical touch of the sequin stars that cascaded down her gown – they shimmered with every step. So I’ve recreated the look with pieces that are fun, playful, and perfect for a night on the town with your ladies, or a hot date.

Did Emma Stone’s look make it to your list of favourites? Let me know in the comments!
