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!

MY STYLE: SUMMER SKIRTS PT. 2

With the official arrival of fall less than a week away, it’s now or never for one of my last summer style post! Although the days have already started to cool down, and I may have already indulged in a Pumpkin Spice Latte (or two), I am still enjoying some of my summer pieces – one of them being this fabulous skirt from Lane Bryant.You may remember another fun skirt that I picked up from Lane Bryant in the first part of my Summer Skirts posts. I grabbed this colourful piece at the same time because if there’s one thing I love more than skirts, it’s skirts on clearance!

I was drawn to the bright pinks and oranges of this piece, and once I tried it on I discovered a bonus little treat: pockets! It was super comfy and the elastic waist allows me to wear it lower down closer to my hips, or higher up as an empire style, adding an extra layer of versatility. To complete the look I paired it with some fuchsia flats and an ombre necklace to compliment the shades in the skirt. This outfit turned out to be perfect for lounging poolside with my feet dipped in the water!

MY STYLE: BACK TO SCHOOL

It’s that time of year again; the weather is changing, the days are getting a little bit shorter, and it’s back to school! And while I won’t be waiting for the school bus this morning, it’s still fun to put together an outfit for the occasion.

When I think of back to school fashion, I think of primary colours and playful patterns. For this look I started with a pleated A-line dress in yellow with navy stripes – something classic – and paired it with some scholastic themed accessories. Add a pair of coloured tights and swap out some of the accessories, and you’ve got an outfit that can carry you through the chillier autumn months. What is your favourite part of this look?
