prepster chic

Old Navy sweater / Forever 21 chambray shirt, shoes and necklace / H&M skirt and bag  / Aldo ring / 

Chambray shirt + chunky knit sweater + a neon yellow mini = perfect outfit for a cold spring day. For me, this is a rather preppy look - I don't do the button down and sweater layering very often. I must admit though, I'm kind of liking it. It's effortlessly chic and timeless. There's always a "not-new-but-new-to-me" trend to embrace. 

Happy Friday, lovelies!

a little inspiration

The last few days have been up in down in weather, mostly down - freezing cold (even snow in the Greater Toronto Area). All I can do is look at some spring/summer inspiration as I pull my winter coat back out to keep warm. Here are some trends I'm looking forward to sporting. 

1) Combining flow, girlie, floral printed dresses ans skirts with edgy shoes.
2) Colour blocked sandals.
3) Taking the regular jeans and a blazer and stepping it up a notch with colours instead of basics.
4) Matching coloured trousers with coloured shoes .
5) Lightweight blazer/jacket to spruce up some jeans.
6) Light, flowy, breezy fabrics that form a sea of white. 

cobalt peplum

Zara top and leggings / H&M bag / Aldo shoes and bangles / Forever 21 necklace / Stella & Dot Bardot bracelet

My obsession with cobalt blue continues, and this time it's in peplum form. 

Happy Monday!

leather & lace

Dollhouse leather jacket / Wildfox tee / Forever 21 skirt / H&M bag / Tahari shoes

Simple outfit. I tried to dress down a lace skirt with my Wildfox white tee and my leather jacket. When I first bought this skirt, I saw it as strictly a going out piece/nigh time look. So I'm happy to get more use out of it while the sun's still out - more bang for your buck (though the buck was only $12!). Gives me so many ideas for the rest of my closet.

blue flirtation

ASOS top / H&M skirt and bag / Shoes from random shop in Montreal / Selection of H&M, Aldo and Stella & Dot bangles / Forever 21 bib necklace

Happy Monday! I'm running late on posting this today so I'll keep it short and sweet. Here's a quick outfit post from Date Night. A very girlie, flirtatious look with black and blue - even the nails are blue!

my week with instagram

It's Friday! I thought I'd share my past week on Instagram with you guys. I've been on it for a week and I'm sort of addicted. I think that's the first step right - admitting there's an issue? Well, you were my witnesses. I'm addicted to Instagram. Have a great weekend lovebugs!

highlighter yellow

Urban Outfiters sweater / H&M skirt and bag / Boots from London / Forever 21 bib necklace / Stella & Dot earrings

I take it as a sign from the shopping gods when I walk into a store and see something that matches my nail polish. This was the case at Urban Outfitters last weekend. Though this sweater may be too bright for some, for me and my Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow nails, it was a match made in heaven! 

mint condition

Forever 21 blazer, jeans, and cuff / H&M tee / Aldo heels / Costa Blanca bag / Stella & Dot necklace

I picked up these jeans from Forever 21 this weekend and I'm legitimately obsessed with them. For starters, they're super comfy, but more importantly, they're exactly the shade of mint I was looking for-still in the pastel family, but a little more vibrant. Love it when I can cross things off my wishlist!

by the tracks

Costa Blanca Luxe cashmere sweater / Forever 21 high low skirt / Primark shoes / H&M bag / Stella & Dot Bardot Bangle

Happy Monday! I hope you all had an amazing long weekend! I mostly enjoyed nice meals with family and friends and did some light shopping (here and here). I can already tell this week is going to be rough. It's gonna be hard to get back into the regular routine!

PS: Can you tell this was my Easter outfit? Obviously I had to match the holiday right!?!

the white shirt + giveaway winner

A white button down shirt goes a long way. A couple years ago, I would describe it as stuffy, too structured or just uncomfortable (probably because I associated it with "work"). Now, it's become my go-to piece when I have no idea what to pair with a certain item. Jeans, shorts, flowy skirts or structured skirts - whatever it may be, a white shirt definitely polishes it off. Then slap on some accessories, and out the door. I can always appreciate a look that's quick and easy.

Onto other news. Thanks so much to all those of you who participated in in my Giveaway. The entries were all so sweet. And the winner is... CurlyGirly21!

CurlyGirly21, email me ASAP at so I can get this off to you!

tahari beauties

I went on a little girls road trip/shopping trip to Buffalo on the weekend. Got a few things, but these have to be my favourite purchase. As soon as I got them I decided I just had to go out that night to wear them. Too bad eight hours of trying things on and walking around countless malls tired a girl out!

PS: Don't forget to enter my Giveaway! I'll be picking a winner tomorrow.

rock on, rock hard

Dollhouse leather jacket / Fairweather dress / Aldo bag / Shoes from a randio shop in Eaton Centre

Okay. So the post title is a little dramatic, but this is my definition of rocker chic right there - leather and leopard. Of course, I had to throw in the pink frilly dress to really make it me. We've been experiencing some very moody weather here in Toronto. One day it's T-shirt weather, the next day I'm pulling my winter jacket out again. My leather jacket has definitely served as a happy medium when I'm not sure what to expect when I step out. Mother Nature, make up your mind already. We'd be quite grateful.
