Gilded Mint Wraps from Jamberry.

This ASOS Curve dress was a long shot since ordering it online without being able to try it on and it’s a style that I’ve never tried. Not to mention this was much more form fitting than my usual look but it was well worth the risk!

Tree puns are so sappy.

I’m so completely in love with bright colours although I tend to reserve them to home decor far too often. I’m always telling myself, this season I will buy all the colours!

fullsizeoutput_700

We had endless amounts of rain over my vacation so of course now that I’m work ready… the sun is shining once again. I’m loving this outfit, mostly from Eloqui as the perfect day to night type of look. This will be going into the suitcase for work trips this summer.

100% More Floral

fullsizeoutput_6a7

When life gets a little too hectic and you have zero time to blog, you go on vacation!

I wish I could regale you with stories of wild pool parties, exotic locations and a killer tan but since I already live in on of Canada’s favourite vacation locales I spent a week off just enjoying my town and completely winding down.

It was perfection.

Day 1 – I already look less stressed, and 100% more floral.

The Pink Lady

Since our teen years haven’t we all wanted to be part of The Pink Ladies and wear the coveted satin jacket?

a7f037565715b9c70274a3d44d41daa2

I’m not going to even dig into my love of Rizzo and pencil skits right now but I did find the perfect satin bomber for myself recently from Charlotte Russe!

fullsizeoutput_628fullsizeoutput_627

I fell in love with this jacket after having seen much more expensive versions all over lately. I wasn’t ready to commit a lot of funds for this possibly fleeting fashion but this one is available in standard and plus sizes from Charlotte Russe and currently on sale for under $25!!

The Boohoo Coated denim pants from ASOS Curve were another great deal for $30 but there are only a few pairs left now and they are going for $15! Rush to ASOS for this steal but I would suggest sizing up as they were tighter than I expected.

I’m loving the sunny Spring weather and recently got the pink redone in my hair which always makes me feel wonderful.

Gorgeous watercolour floral.

Easter Bunny

Happy Easter!

fullsizeoutput_5ea

I hope your weekend has been filled with impossibly high sugar intakes and sweet love!

Easter celebrations are low key now that my only child has hit the late teens and while he did enjoy chocolate and I got hugs and kisses, there was sadly no Easter Egg Hunt for me him this year.

fullsizeoutput_5e4fullsizeoutput_5e8

Regardless of egg hunts or sugar highs I still can’t resist a outfit with a theme. This adorable bunny top is curtesy of H&M’s plus line. I’ve scored some really great picks from them although the line is very limited. Take note: they offer a lot more online and only select stores carry the plus items.

Skirt from Addition Elle and tights, as always, from We Love Colors.

Anyone else do an Easter inspired outfit for the weekend?

Spring Flowers

IMG_5751

I’ve been ready for Spring sunshine for weeks now! It’s been making random appearances through my office window.

fullsizeoutput_59a

I honestly can’t remember the last time I went barefoot as opposed to warm socks and Uggs, even indoors! I’m definitely ready to bring out my Spring wardrobe now though.

fullsizeoutput_58c

I picked this hippie blouse up from the sale rack at H&M because all the detailing was too amazing to pass up! The high collar, the eyelet and the sheer back with large keyhole!!!

fullsizeoutput_59e

FYI, trying to capture a photo from behind, is the worst.

The jeans were an amazing find from Charlotte Russe which I featured on a previous Shopping Cart post. I paid $12.50 for these beauties!!

fullsizeoutput_5a1

I already know these will end up being well worn throughout the Spring and Summer this year!

What are you most excited to put on this Spring?

Pretty in Pink

I’m back!

It was a much longer than anticipated return to OOTD posts but my work trip was intense & then I got insanely sick. But I’m back! And so is SPRING!!!!

I was so happy to get in and see my stylist for an update of my colour. We had a bit of fun with a messy/curly style while I was there too.

fullsizeoutput_56f

Today I’m rockin this adorable, super short Forever 21+ collared dress. I tried it previously with leggings and jeggings but what it was really waiting for was Spring weather and tights!

fullsizeoutput_571

We Love Colors are everything to me in the Spring and Fall. I have so many colours and honestly always think I need more. This particular shade is Orchid Pink. The adorable saddle shoes were a total steal from ModCloth.

This is my ‘Hi, I’m feeling cute’ look.
