Spring Blush

With all this snow we have been getting, I am wishing for Spring. Around this time of year, I like to brighten up my wardrobe and pull out some fun colours hoping that spring will grace us with her presence. It seems as if the snow is never going to melt away, but I am hopeful that we are going to see spring some time soon!

Blouse: c/o Pink BlushJeans: Urban Planet

Mauve is a soft, neutral colour.  I consider it to be in the “blush pink” family. It goes with pretty much any colour and is absolutely the perfect colour base for a spring outfit. Blush emulates pink, but isn’t as vibrant and in your face – stunning for this time of year. I picked this blouse up at my favourite feminine online boutique, Pink Blush. I always look to Pink Blush for cute, feminine pieces that I can add to my closet. Especially around this time of year when I am looking to brighten up my wardrobe!

My favourite look for this tie front blouse is pairing it with jeans on the bottom. Anyone who knows me, know I love to use jeans as the basis of my outfits. A good pair of jeans is a staple in any woman’s wardrobe – no matter the season. However, there are so many different ways you could style this tie front blouse. You can dress it up by adding a fun patterned skirt on the bottom, or even with some lighter pastel or white pants on the bottom for summer!

I like to add third pieces on top of outfits generally as well. When we think about how many months we spend layering in Canada, it’s nice to always keep a third piece in mind when looking at a basic outfit like this one. I chose to add a fun textured “teddy coat”. It’s also a neutral coloured piece, which means it won’t take away from the blouse itself…and gives the whole look another dimension. Always add the third piece! I tend to wrap myself up in sweaters in this cold weather, but having fun blouses that you can transition from winter to spring, is key in keeping your wardrobe consistent!

Fall Chenille

It’s my favourite time of year and we are in complete full swing. Despite the gloomy rain, I pretty much love everything about the fall season. This year, I have been consumed with school. I am no longer a student and am now a full blown teacher – hard to believe, eh? There is nothing I love more, than a comfy sweater to spend those long school days in and this year, I am LOVING chenille fabric.

Sweater: c/o Pink Blush  / Jeans: Urban Planet / Shoes: Converse

Chenille is a soft, velvet-like fabric. It has an amazing feel, is super cozy and PERFECT for these chilly fall days we are having. I got this at my favourite women’s online boutique, Pink Blush. I can almost guarantee you will find a gorgeous piece for any season in their boutique. My closet is certainly stocked full of chic items (thank you Pink Blush!). 

My go-to look for this sweater is accompanying it with jeans on the bottom. I think that jeans are a great fall piece to have (and every woman should have a favourite pair of jeans in their closet ready to go). There are many other ways you could style this sweater. You can style it with a cute fall skirt, or even with some darker pants to really make the colour POP in the sweater. Another way I wear this chenille is with a third piece on top of the sweater along with the jeans.

Having a third piece to any outfit takes your look up a notch, because it adds another element. My typical third piece is a vest in the fall because it gives the look texture and I love the layered look! However, you could do a cute jacket or scarf as well (great opportunity to pattern mix with the scarf!). There are so many ways you can style a fall sweater…which is exactly what I love about sweaters in general. Also, I can get across enough that this fabric is SO SOFT!

Fun on the Farm

It’s been a hot summer, and I am more than ready for the weather to cool down! There’s something about the smell of fall hanging in the air and the crisp winds starting to pick up that puts a smile on my face. Fall is my favourite season and time of year and I love going to the farm to kick off the season! However, just because the temperatures drop, doesn’t mean you pack the dresses away!

In fact, this is the perfect time of year to transition some of your summer staples to the cooler season! This grey wrap midi-dress is one of my new favourite dresses. I picked it up at Pink Blush and I cannot get enough of it! It is the simplest piece to style and extremely comfortable. As many of you know, Pink Blush is my favourite online boutique to pick up key pieces for my wardrobe! It is super si

mple to fill your cart with amazing finds and I am never disappointed!

I have already styled this dress a couple of ways, but today I wanted to show you my favourite way. Everybody knows that a good jean jacket is pretty much necessary to have in one’s wardrobe. I, personally, have three and I cycle them in and out of outfits as needed. For this look, I decided to pair it with my white denim jacket to give it a summer-fall transition feel.

White is such a tricky colour to style around this time of year. Sometimes it works for the cooler seasons, but it is primarily a summer colour. However, pairing it with other fall toned pieces creates the perfect September ensemble! I think that this wrap dress contrasts the white denim, all in all creating a very fun September look!

Last, but not least, I went for a more casual shoe. First of all, I was spending my morning at the farmer’s market and also running a few errands. Second of all, it’s a cute casual and comfortable look while still maintaining an element of flare! You can definitely jazz this ensemble up with a pair of low kitten heels or even wedges!

Fall is quickly approaching and I can’t contain my excitement! If you need me, I’ll be sipping my pumpkin spice latte, wrapped in a blanket scarf, shopping for pumpkins!

Happy Fall!

Whimsical Wrap Dress

Summer is in full swing, and what better way to celebrate the sunny season than with a whimsical getaway?! A couple of weeks ago, I hopped on a plane and spontaneously flew to Punta Cana! Punta Cana is such a magical place, and every moment I was there, I felt like a true princess.

Vacations are a time to kick back and relax, but also the time to experiment with your style! Tropical prints, light fabric, and bold colours are all apart of the vibes you can play with! Before this getaway, I had never ventured to the islands, or anywhere remotely tropical…so needless to say, it was my opportunity to have FUN!

PinkBlush is one of my go-to boutiques for fun prints and feminine style. I literally always find something that makes me feel amazing. This beautiful wrap tie dress caught my eye instantly when I was curating my vacation looks. I just love the vibes it gives off. This isn’t a dress I would normally gravitate to because the print is outside my comfort zone. However, I took a chance and I am SO glad that I did.

I love the ruffle detail in the neckline, and how it ties around the waist. It’s such a unique and fun style, and perfect for your tropical getaway! The pops of colour in the print really resonated with me, and I feel like it’s just such a simple dress to style. Here, I styled it with my go-to flip flops, but throwing on a pair of neutral wedges takes the look to a whole new level!

As always, PinkBlush didn’t let me down, and I continue to drool over their perfectly feminine styles.

CHEERS!

Matching with the Cherry Blossoms

Summer is finally here! It felt like the drippy weather was never going to end! I am so happy to be getting outside, feeling that warm summer breeze and just embracing the season. It certainly is one of my favourite times of the year.

It is time to put your winter boots away and pull out the outdoor kicks! I love shoes, but I have never been one to wear sneakers as my every day. I love my flip flops and pretty much live in them throughout the summer. However, I recently have been getting a lot more active and sneakers are becoming my number one choice.

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of Skechers (here and here). I recently received this amazing pair of “Flex Appeal” Skechers running shoes. They are pretty much what I live in now. They have air cooled memory foam technology in the soles which make them light, airy and completely comfortable. Also, they are PINK (that’s my kind of shoe). I love how great they make my feet feel, and how stylish they are all at the same time.

I recently trekked down to High Park to do some city sight seeing. Early May is the peak time to view the cherry blossoms bloom, and there was no way I was going to miss out on something so beautiful! I don’t live right in Toronto, so it was definitely a hike to get there, but I made it and I definitely didn’t mind matching with the blossoms.

For this look, I didn’t want to look super sporty. I also wanted pink to be the POP of my look, so I paired the shoes with some more casual and muted pieces (i.e. denim jacket, black jeans, etc.). The eye-catching pink scarf pulls the look together because of the POP of pink in the shoes (side note: it was way too hot for a scarf…oh well). I really love how this look was so simple to style and throw together!

Skechers is my go-to for in style, casual and cute shoes. As a bonus (and I really mean bonus, because women do not emphasize this certain factor in most shoe scenarios), they are SO COMFORTABLE. I cannot say that enough!

Keep it cute and casual with Skechers this season!
