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!

If this is a look that you are loving as well, I have rounded up a bunch of more reasonable palm pieces below:

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!

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 😉

One of my favourite dresses of all time!

When I received the invitation for one of my best girlfriend’s weddings, I immediately realized I was going to need an exceptional dress! She is so classy and fabulous I knew this was going to be no ordinary soiree.  I started my search for a dress that was worthy of attending these beautiful nuptials… 😉  As soon as I saw this bold, gorgeous floral party dress I knew that it would be perfect (and so was the price!)

This is one of my very favourite dresses that I have hanging in my closet.  I have gotten so many compliments on it.  This dress also comes in a handful of other pretty prints if you are looking for a great dress for a special occasion.  It is a super feminine length and such a flattering cut! Now I just need more occasions to wear it!

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 🙂

One Cardigan Styled Three Ways

Good Morning everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start 🙂

I am all about versatility when it comes to fashion.  I love finding a dress I can utilize for multiple seasons, a great denim shirt that I can dress up or down, or in this case- a cardigan I can wear with all different styles of outfits! It is a great way to make your existing wardrobe stretch a little further 🙂 I am cardigan obsessed and this one that I am featuring is a current favourite. (The BP. brand from Nordstrom is awesome!) Not a colour I usually buy, but I am finding it to be super wearable with so many things in my closet! For today’s post I wanted to show how this one article of clothing could be worn with a few different styles of outfits.

Leopard Love

We have had a few chilly weeks here in B.C this last little while.  So you know what that means… time to break out my collection of cute faux fur jackets… LOL!  This leopard print is one of the coats I get the most compliments on. It adds a bit of fun to even the plainest outfit.  I have worn mine with everything from plain black leggings and runners to a party dress and heels.

In addition to being ridiculously fun, it is SO warm!  Also, it really is a style of jacket you are only going to need to purchase once in your life! I might be a bit of a shopper, but even I have a hard time justifying the need to buy more then one leopard print coat… LOL!
