Spring Shopping with NEON Toronto

Hey there – it’s been a while!

A few weeks ago I got invited to NEON Toronto on Queen Street in preparation for Spring! I had a wonderful shopping experience with really great customer service from the store staff. They were all so helpful and allowed me to run around pulling outfits and really maximizing the store space and decor for my photos.

NEON has been around for over 20 years in Quebec. They had a store in Toronto before relocating to a bigger space on Queen Street. I had such a fun time exploring all corners of the store and didn’t realize they carried so many brands like Levi’s, Billabong, Element, OBEY Clothing, Fjallraven and RayBan just to name a few.

Spring is always a great time to freshen up your wardrobe with a few new pieces. I went through the store and pulled out 4 spring looks to share with you before I chose my favourite one.

Layering is key when it comes to spring fashion. I kept the jean jacket as a staple piece with all 4 looks as spring is usually still quite chilly in Toronto and it’s necessary to keep a jacket around.

My Obsession Monday: Polka Dot Dress

My Obsession Monday - Zara Polka Dot Dress.jpg

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.

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!
