Trend I am Loving: Palm Leaf Print!

Palm leaf print was one of my favourite trends form last year and I am so happy to see that it is going to be super popular again this year! There is something so happy about these bold leaves… they always gives me that sunshine, vacation feeling 🙂

This dress was one of my favourites from last year and lucky for you it has been restocked for Spring!

Pretty in Pink!

Hello friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  We are currently soaking up the sunshine in Maui, but I couldn’t wait to share this adorable dress with you 🙂  Pastel pink and delicate lace?! Two of my very favourite elements of Spring fashion 🙂 Added bonus, it was an absolute steal.  Can there ever be too much pink in your wardrobe?! I have a feeling this one is going to sell out fast.

The Prettiest Pastels!

I absolutely love Springtime in Vancouver!  It is also probably my favourite season for fashion.  The cherry blossom trees are starting to bloom and they make the streets around where we live look absolutely gorgeous.  Everything just looks so refreshed 🙂  I have been loving these clear and sunny days as of late.

There are so many gorgeous pastels out for Spring right now! I love the soft neutrals and all of the lace that I have been seeing. It takes a lot of self-control for me to not buy every beautiful floral dress or delicate skirt that I see.  I may have gone a little overboard collaging the items below, but I absolutely adore all of these colours!

One. Blossom Silk Skinny Scarf //  Two. Purple Pleated Blouse //  Three. Scalloped Lace Top //  Four. Pink Embroidered Pleated Scarf //  Five. Floral Dress //  Six. Pink Lace Dress // Seven. Pinstripe Wrap Dress //  Eight. Lavender Button Dress //  Nine. Floral Cold Shoulder Top //  Ten. Pink Ball Drop Earrings //  Eleven. Bow-Tie Slides //  Twelve. Lace Romper //  Thirteen. Mesh Ruffle Detail Dress //  Fourteen. Mint Distressed Jeans // Fifteen. Floral-Print Belt //  Sixteen. Violet Crossbody Bag //  Seventeen. Adorned Drop Earrings //  Eighteen. Lace Midi Dress //  Nineteen. Blue Block Heel

 

I hope that I have been able to help you refresh your wardrobe for this Spring!

Instagram outfits

Happy Monday everyone! Today I am doing a roundup of some of my Instagram outfits! A few of these items are super versatile for transitioning from Winter to Spring.  The ruffled culottes will look super cute with a tank and some wedges once the temperature warms up around here!  I am completely obsessed with these new blush pink slides… last I checked all sizes were still in stock and they are a STEAL!  Under each photo is the direct link to shop if you wanted to add any of these items to your wardrobe as well!

Happy shopping 😉

Grey Tulle Dress

Until I started my blog, I had no idea how many fun mural walls we had here in Vancouver!  I saw this gorgeous one on the corner of South Granville and West 13th Avenue and thought it would be the perfect backdrop to show off this adorable grey knit and tulle dress I had hanging in my closet.  Who doesn’t love tulle? I always feel like I am channelling my inner Carrie Bradshaw when I wear it… LOL!

Is this not the perfect dress for Spring? It is called the Tranquil Thoughts dress and I found it on a flash sale from VICI (one of my new favourite online sites!) They have the cutest and most reasonably priced clothing. I have been super pleased with everything that I have purchase 🙂

Currently Living in: Loungewear!

I don’t know about you, but I cannot get enough of cozy loungewear right now!  It most likely has something to do with the freezing temperatures outside or the surprise snow we have been waking up to…. but I am finding on my days off, all I want to do is be lazy with my boys around the house!  As much as I love my party dresses, they are not really the most practical choice for sitting on the floor playing duplo or for snuggling with sticky fingered little babes… lol. I have been living in my powder pink joggers and cozy pullovers.

I love anything that is super cozy while still looking cute 🙂

High, Medium & Low Priced Dresses!

I consider myself to be a bit of a deal finder.  Whenever my girlfriends are looking for a specific item they want, I take great pride in being able to search it out and find it for them at a smoking deal!  I definitely own some investment pieces, and have so much appreciation for good quality and luxury items, but I am also a sucker for a bargain!  I have been obsessed with velvet this year and am making a conscious effort not to go overboard with this particular trend.  I had been seeing these gorgeous velvet wrap dresses everywhere and after losing the internal struggle with the more practical version of myself, I came to the conclusion that I needed one hanging in my closet… LOL!  I decided to shop around to see if I could find an option I liked at a lower price point.  Well, it was a successful mission so I decided I should share some of my various priced finds with you guys 🙂

Here are some of the other velvet wrap dresses I came across if we are like-minded and it is an item you were thinking your closet was missing as well…  😉

MEDIUM:

LOW:

What do you think? I felt my $30 grey wrap dress was just as cute as the $230 version!
