At the Tulip Fields with Chicwish!

I finally had the opportunity to check out the Abbotsford Bloom Tulip Festival a couple weeks ago.  It did not disappoint, the flowers were absolutely gorgeous! I decided to wear this beautiful floral skirt that one of my favourite online boutiques Chicwish had gifted me!

I have been shopping on the Chicwish site for years so I was thrilled when they reached out to see if I would be interested in styling some of their clothing.  Their pieces are vintage inspired, super feminine and fun, which I absolutely love!  The clothing is great quality, set still affordable.  I fell in love with this skirt as soon as I saw it.  This beautiful backdrop seemed like the perfect occasion to finally showcase it!

If you are going to be a guest at a wedding this Summer or looking for a unique sundress that you aren’t going to see walking around on everybody else, I highly encourage you to check out the Chicwish site.  Their clothing is really beautiful and I cannot wait to show you what other pieces I will be wearing 🙂

Polka Dot Midi Skirt

One of my favourite Kate Spade quotes is “You can’t have a bad day in polka dots!”  I have made it one of my fashion mantras.. LOL! I am a sucker for anything with a cute polka dot print.  I feel like my closet might be getting a little full of black and white polka spots though… which is why I was so excited when I found this pretty blue and back polka dot skirt!

I feel like it is going to be one of those great Spring transitional pieces! It was actually snowing when we shot these photos so I wore it with my cozy turtleneck, but it will also be adorable with sandals and Spring tops as well!  I adore its retro vibe 🙂

Chambray & Laser Cut Skirt

This chambray shirt is one of my favourite and most versatile items in my closet.  It is so easy to dress up or down.  I love to throw it on with a pair of leggings when I’m home with the kids or pair it with jeans for a cute “Canadian tuxedo” kind of look 😉  One of my go to ways to wear it though, is tucked into various skirts.  I’ve worn it with dressier minis, tulle ballet type skirts, colourful pleated midis and I love it with this white laser cut skirt.

Denim Shirt // White Skirt (sold out) similar HERE & HERE // Tassel Earrings // similar Purse

Such an effortless and fun look!  I have owned a handful of different chambray shirts and this one is by far my favourite.  It is long enough to wear with leggings, actually stays tucked in place with pants or skirts and looks really cute knotted at the waist as well.  The lightweight material is also perfect for throwing on overtop of a sundress during the Spring or Summer as well!

Blushing

This soft, baby pink is one of my favourite colours to wear right now.  To be honest I love most shades of pink, I’m not discriminatory… lol.  Lately though, I have noticed this pretty blush colour starting to creep into my closet more and more!  This particular skirt is so easy to wear.  It is light weight, breezy and super feminine.  The price is nice too :))  I have linked my particular outfit below as well as few other great items in this pretty pink if you are looking to add some blush to your summer lineup!

I love this colour so much and I can guarantee you are going to be seeing it a ton this Fall as well.  It is soft enough that it is easy to coordinate with the cooler tones of next season… the tans, blues, browns and greys… so gorgeous!

Stay tuned, I am already working on that post…

Blue Asymmetrical Skirt

One of my favourite recent purchases is this asymmetrical striped skirt.  I love this bright blue for Spring and Summer.  This particular skirt is super versatile in that I can fancy it up with a sleeveless blouse and cute heels when I want to feel a bit dressier, or wear it with a simple tank top and flip flops for a more casual vibe.  The latter is literally my summer uniform this year.  I love to throw on a cute midi skirt, light weight tank and sandals. It lets me feel a little bit dressed up while still being practical enough to play with my kids.

I love the layered ruffles on this particular skirt.
