Spring is finally here! I’m so excited for the warm weather, it’s been tough transitioning back into the cold weather ever since my Bali trip. You’re probably wondering why I haven’t shared any photos on my blog yet but I promise you they’re coming! This year has been hectic with work, weddings (I’m in 3!) and bachelorette trips – it’s making this year fun but leaving me with no time to blog.
Anyways, back to this polka dot dress. I absolutely love the look, it’s such a perfect transition piece. The viscose fabric is light and airy so you can layer it or wear the dress by itself. Since the weather is still chilly in Toronto, I’ve been pairing this with tights and boots while accessorizing it with a scarf for extra warmth. For when the weather warms up, I would wear this dress with a pair of light-coloured sandals and summer hat to break up the black. I’m going to be honest, I was skeptical at first about the polka dots as it’s not a print that I own but the cutting and flow of the dress sold me! I loved it even more when I tried the dress on.
ZARA Polka Dot Dress ($49.90)
Tights: Rachel’s Box – I got a chance to try a few pairs of tights from Rachel’s Box and I love the quality and fit. I wear these Black Sheer Tight the most, they’re sexy and comfortable. What’s also great about these tights is that you can get a subscription, first complete the style questionnaire as the tights are pre-selected based on your style and then choose the frequency of the delivery.
Shoes: Aldo – I bought these boots last year but these Aldo Jeffres Boots are very similar!
Last week I had the opportunity to attend the CMA Gala with my Tangerine work family. Although we didn’t win an award this time around, it was great to be surrounded by industry professionals who were recognized for their creativity and hard work. I felt inspired and had a ton of fun bonding with the team (they’re quite amazing). Keep scrolling for outfit details and more pictures from that night.
The Little Black Dress:
I found this dress at M for Mendocino the day before the CMA Gala. It was pure luck since I don’t always shop at that store but I thought I’d pop by. After trying on a few dresses, the one that was on sale with an additional 30% off fit the best. It ended up being less than $30! I’m not sure if they’re still available at the store but since it was only a week ago, maybe it’s still there!
You can never go wrong with another LBD. The thick criss-cross straps are what makes this dress and I love the open back too. With the back of this dress, I had to wear a stick-on bra but I couldn’t find the one I have the morning of the gala so I had to purchase a new one. I’ve been told that the La Senza Lightly Lined Feather-Lite Backless Bra one is pretty good so out of desperation, I decided to take the plunge and drop $70 for them. I know I know, it’s double the cost of my dress but don’t judge me. I wore it throughout the whole night and didn’t feel uncomfortable at all and it stuck on pretty well. Now I know why it cost that much! I do recommend it if you often wear backless tops or dresses, this one is way better than the one that I misplaced.
Hope you had a great weekend! I went to a wedding on Saturday and because the ceremony and reception weren’t back-to-back, I was able to do an outfit change for the evening. I LOVE weddings, it’s such a happy moment shared between 2 lovebirds with their closest friends and family. I’ve known my friend since I was 11 so it was needless to say that it was an emotional moment – so happy for the newly wed couple! This is the first of many weddings that I have lined up for this year so I will be sharing more wedding looks and outfits in the upcoming months!
Top: Zara – This top is quite fitted and cropped, to make it appropriate for a wedding ceremony, I made sure to pair it with a flowy, high-waisted skirt with a little more length.
Skirt: Small boutique in Seoul, South Korea (I need to go back for some shopping – miss it so much there!). This skirt is one of my favourite statement pieces in my closet. ❤
Bag: Danier Leather
Shoes: Steve Madden (similar ones here, here & here)
I’m loving this Forever 21 Crinkled Surplice Romper! You got a sneak peek of this cute little number when I shared it on last week’s My Obsession Monday post so I wanted to show you how versatile it is and what I would pair it with!
Christmas is around the corner and that means outfit planning for all the upcoming holiday parties and get-togethers. When it comes to shopping, I always love finding pieces that are versatile so that I can style them in different ways. Here are 3 different holiday looks that will be great for all your holiday parties!
This little sequins crop top is the perfect party piece to add some sparkle to your holiday look! As for the shoes, pick a pair of chunky heels for comfort so that you can mingle and dance the night away!
