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.
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!
I have totally been MIA for the last month or so, but for a very good reason so I hope you all understand!! I’ve missed blogging and I’ll be getting back into the groove very soon. I started a new job recently and it’s such a refreshing change of environment – the team, company and work are all amazing!
Spring is around the corner and Zara came out with so many cute pieces! Here are a few items that I bought over the course of this month – what do you think?
I LOVE Zara shoes so I thought I’d round up my favourites spring essentials from their S/S’16 selection! These are fun for when the weather warms up and the best part is that they’re all under $100! I’ve also included some style inspiration on how you can sport these with different looks.
I’m so happy that sneakers are so trendy now and you can sport them outside of the gym and potentially even dress them up a little! I don’t own a lot since I’m used to wearing more heels but I am always on a lookout for cool styles. This pastel pair is super cute – the suede material adds a softness to the look and the lace tie is perfect for the spring/summer outfits.
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!
Hope you’ve all been staying warm and dry. The weather has been nasty lately but to make things a little brighter, let’s talk about spring! I recently got invited to the Ever New Spring 2016 Preview at the Rose and Sons Swan – all the flowers and beautiful pieces got me dreaming of spring looks!
Thanks for having me, Kirsten! She’s the absolute cutest and I love the dress that she’s in. Ever New has some really great lace-up piece in this spring collection.
Their ‘Season Essentials’ collection had so many fresh pieces that are great for the city girl and ‘Positano Postcard’ had a feminine flare, filled with whites, light pastels and a burst of colour. Those pieces make you want to start planning your next holiday getaway!
They had a flat lay station – so genius! It’s great for those of us who want to capture the perfect shot for Instagram! I picked out some of my favourite pieces from each collection for my flat lays.
