Happy Tuesday!

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.

My Obsession Monday: Forever 21 Romper

My Obsession Monday - Forever 21 Romper.jpg

Happy Monday lovelies!

The sun’s out and it’s getting me excited about Spring! There may still be another month or so of winter jackets and Sorels, but it’s never too early to start looking at spring outfit inspiration! Am I right?

I love pieces that are great on their own and also versatile enough to transition from season to season. That is why I am obsessed with this Forever 21 Crinkled Surplice Romper in Olive for only $19.90! It comes in 3 colours – all neutrals! The peach colour may be a little too light for my complexion but I would definitely pick up the black one as well (if they restock)! The lightweight material makes it easy to layer pieces over and under the romper without making it feel too frumpy. I sported this piece with tights and tall boots at the Ever New Spring Preview (post will go up next week!) since it’s still a bit chilly but when it warms up, I’ll rock it with strappy sandals and open toe shoes!

Throwback to the time I attended the Saks Canada x Shantell Martin event. I had a BLAST and I look forward to checking out the new Saks Fifth Canada store on Queen Street!

It was really awesome to be in such a creative space. Shantell Martin spent days before the event and illustrated all over the walls, floor, and canvases in her bold style. I love the style of her work, it’s very impactful and it tells a story.

Casual Chic: Weekday Style

Hi everyone – Happy Thursday!

The Trends collection is my favourite line from H&M! They carry some really cool trendy, avant-garde piece. The price point is a bit higher than the rest of the H&M collections but I will splurge a bit when I find a piece I really like. This peach sweater is my most recent purchase from that collection and I LOVE IT!
