Let the Sun Shine In!

Even though it is only January 20, the weather this week has been so springy! It’s been above zero and so much sun. I know for people who don’t live in the arctic tundra of Alberta this is not that great of a forecast, but it’s glorious to me and it makes me so excited for springtime and all the spring style and fashion coming our way! These are a few of favourite things for spring!

I love a good crop top and I’m so glad they are staying in style for another season. I love them with a high waisted midi skirt with a bright print for warmer weather. This Oscar de la Renta look is everything!

Fringe! Fringe forever! I love a modern take on a style from different eras; 70’s style fringe and 20’s style fringe.

Such a great feel to this flapper-esque Proenza Schouler. source

This Etro fringe look is festival ready. source

Even though I have enough bags to last anyone a lifetime, every season something gorgeous and to die for comes out and I yearn for it!

3.1 Phillip Lim pastels for spring!

This Givenchy clutch is so great for going out and how cute is the baby’s breath motif?

The jeans I’m into right now are MOTHER. These are a couple pairs I’m eyeing to pick up in the next few months.

I found both these pairs on Revolve www.revolveclothing.com

One of a my favourite coats that I own is a poppy red trench that I bought years ago and I can’t even remember where. I wear it so much in spring and fall so I have been scouring for another to add this year.

This aqua Burberry trench is soooo stunning, I’m obsessed!

I also think a nice print in a trench is so classic and goes well with so many outfits. I think this houndstooth Michael Kors you could dress up for a night out or dress down with jeans and black flats.

Some warm weather shoes are starting to pop up. I love a good slip on with jeans and capris, like these Stuart Weitzman ones.

I’m also liking these little red booties from aldo.

Last but not least I really really WANT this dress from ASOS. Wouldn’t it be so great for a spring wedding?

ASOS is such an amazing site. They have what seems like an endless supply of clothes and so reasonably priced. This dress also caught my eye when I was spending HOURS on the site today.

Enjoy this fabulous January weather, I’m sure we’ll get a cold snap in February!

It is a well known fact that every woman needs a good little black dress. Does anyone have as hard a time as me finding the perfect dress? I got this dress years ago and I don’t like to wear it that often because I’m scared to wear it out and not ever find another black dress I like as much. This is the perfect one for me. Good length, girly bow, pockets (I love a pocketed dress surprise). And I especially love that it is so demure in the front but has a sexier feel in the back. A black dress is such a great canvas to accessorize. With this look I only added a fun shoe but you could go crazy with bangles and earrings. I’m still getting used to my short hair, whenever I run my hands through it I’m expecting more hair at the bottom. But it feels way better and I was so ready for a change I’m glad I did it. I’m also on my way back to blonde and so happy about it, I am accepting my blonde fate. I went to Calgary to visit a girlfriend over the weekend and we did a really fun and easy breakfast recipe I’ll blog about asap. It’s starting to get way cooler at night so I’m beginning to think about my fall wardrobe wish list. It is extensive of course. I love summer, but I also love getting into fall clothes. I try to stay away from the malls at this time of year because of all the back to school madness. When the a mall is extremely packed it literally gives me anxiety. I much prefer to shop during slow times , like a Tuesday morning in October. If only it would only get as cold as fall here instead of plummeting into the minus 20 range. Why do we live in this land? I hope everyone had a great weekend!
