bold…

This season we are busting out with our boldest of accessories. Starting with bags big or small. Put the focus on your bold and beautiful bag and keep the rest of your outfit simple (but never boring). I love this Rainbow tote or this one by Kate Spade.  I also love to hit vintage shops for great vintage statement bags.

planning ahead…

The long term forecast is good. It has me daydreaming of ice cream al fresco, open-toe sandals, and light breezy blouses. Luckily, with all the sales currently on I can afford to shop for everything my heart desires without any collateral damage at all (to my bank account). I just love finds like this very chic and stylish sleeveless blouse from H&M.com. I especially love the price!

spring?…

warehouse.com  $105 CAD

I feel like Spring weather is a thing of the past. We seem to go from winter to summer in the blink of an eye. So…what to wear when you’re feeling Spring but there’s still a chill in the air? I love long knit dresses. Long enough to cover my legs from the still cold-ish temperature yet well, it’s a dress that I don’t have to hide under my winter parka. Also not yet time for strappy sandals so I can play with other styles that are more fitted to the wet streets. I know sunny, warm days are just around the corner. But, until then…

plaid skirt…

This season we continue to see plaid/tartan in key pieces like skirts, pants, and of course coats and jackets. I’ve posted about plaid before so clearly I have a thing for it. I can’t help it…I love how it punches up any outfit taking it from ordinary to something special.  I love the pencil skirt for so many reasons. It looks so refined on almost any body type (proportion is key) and it never goes out of style. Check out this look…
