April Showers

Pink Hunter Boots | White Skinny Jeans | Zara Quilted Navy Jacket (old, VERY similar option) | Chloe Beige Cross-body Bag  | MAC lipstick in Girl About Town | Bauble Bar White Tassel Earrings

Does anyone else feel like this past month has flown by!? I cannot believe that in less than a week April will be upon us.

With April comes more showers, and many hopes of May flowers! In preparation for the April showers, I pulled out my favourite pair of Hunter boots. These boots are perfect for taking me through this time of year, and make the dreary days a little brighter with a pop of pink.

My Favourite Floral

Floral Wrap Midi DressThe Dressery Boutique c/o| Steve Madden Strappy Sandals | Chloe Dupe Purse | Ray-ban Aviators

Have you ever slipped on a piece of clothing and just felt like everything about it is perfect? For me, this dress is that piece.

A little background on this dress. A few months back one of my best friends introduced me to The Dressery Boutique, which lead to many night of us swooning over pieces on their site, glass of wine in hand. This girlfriend of mine picked up some pieces from the shop and I was always so impressed by the quality of everything she picked up. I had been stalking the site for a while in hopes of snagging a perfect spring dress and was so happy I spotted this one as soon as it launched! This dress feels like butter. Seriously, it’s perfect! The first time I put it on I didn’t want to take it off, and can’t wait to take it on an upcoming trip – the material won’t wrinkle in your suitcase.

I’ve also got my eye on this skirt, this dress, and this top, for my upcoming travels. If you’ve got your eye on anything from The Dressery, you can get it 10% off with code THEEMALEXANDER10. Happy shopping 🙂

 

Spring Air

With spring in the air and new blooms bursting through the ground, I have been getting more and more excited to pull out some of my favourite pieces from last year, while adding a few new ones to my collection. One of the pieces I have started collecting, in various colours for various seasons, is this pleated midi skirt. From the fit, to how it flows, it’s the perfect piece to take me through this season and into the next.

 

What I Wore to The Farmers Market

One of the things that gets me through those cold winter days is the Terra Winter Market. All spring and summer I spend as many Saturday mornings as I can at the Farmers Market, and it makes me so sad every time it ends, so when I found out about the Winter Market I knew I had to check it out. This place is such a breath of fresh air on those icy dry days! Hiding out in the greenhouse with a Popsicle in hand brings me great joy.

This past weekend I met up with my momma at the market in this easy weekend outfit, it was so refreshing to just slip on some flats and toss a light scarf over my shoulders. I can’t wait for more days like these!

My Favourite Combo

Boohoo Grey Cropped Moto Jacket | Shein Blush Lace Top | American Eagle Dream Jean | Lord & Taylor Pink Flats | Jewelled Pink Crossbody Purse

If you follow me on Instagram you would know that I am totally hooked on pastel combos right now. My absolute favourite combo lately is this blush pink with a soft grey, especially the combo of  a feminine lace blouse with a moto jacket to add a little edge to the outfit. What is your favourite style right now?

Spring Dresses for Less(es)

SHEIN Frill Detail Bishop Dress | Grey Sam Edelman Booties | Navy Blue Fedora | Chloe Dupe Beige Cross-body Bag

See what I did there? dresses for less(es)… I’m at least trying to be clever haha!

If you’ve been following along here you would know that I have been obsessing over spring lately, particularly when it comes to fashion and florals. With some fun travel and event plans on the horizon, I have been on the hunt for the perfect dresses to take me through this transitional period and into spring and summer.

Since many of you, like me, are on a budget I decided to round up a bunch of my favourite dresses under $100 (most under $50) to take you through this last bit of winter and into spring:

Swinging Into Spring

Guys! There is less than one month until spring will be upon us and I seriously cannot wait. I feel like so often I have spoken about my disdain for winter this year. While it was truly beautiful, it has been rough for Josh and I. Between the extreme cold, feet of snow, and constant sickness, our ability to get out and enjoy this season has been seriously limited. This has left me longing for the warmer weather, longer days, and new life that spring brings.

While I can’t make the warmer weather come faster, I have been able to bring my wardrobe into spring with a plethora of pastel coats, floral maxi skirts, and fitted knits. The combination of all three brought this outfit to life and I must admit, this is probably my favourite outfit so far this year. Twirling around in this skirt had me dreaming of swinging into spring – any day now *crosses fingers*.
