A simple outfit I can toss on and go is what I look for 90% of the time. So, when I find an easy outfit pairing like this tank and cardigan combo I’m sold.
This past weekend it FINALLY felt like spring! I thought I might cry tears of joy when I saw the forecast, and the real thing was even better. We walked around town for a few hours, stopping to get some fro-yo and a drink on the patio – it was everything I have been dreaming of for the past six months of snow.
One of my favourite pieces to wear this time of year is a simple kimono or light oversized cardigan, they’re the perfect topper for this time of year and quickly elevate a simple outfit.
I’ve started to feel like my blog and instagram have become a weather report lately. We have certainly had the most intense winter I’ve encountered in my time and this weekend’s ice and freezing rain storm certainly put a damper on my hopes of spring blooms popping up soon. I am just keeping my fingers crossed that all the little buds I saw earlier this week haven’t died.
With this ice and freezing rain keeping us under covers I decided to make the best of it and get my bags packed for some upcoming travels, along with cleaning our house and playing with and snuggling my puppies. I may have also binge watched a bunch of interesting shows on Netflix. What are your favourite Netflix shows to binge watch?
While I love a good floral print, or vibrant outfit, the classics will always hold strong in my wardrobe. So when I find classic pieces with a fun twist I’m sold! I recently took a trip to Zara and fell in love with this skirt and turtleneck. I love the pearl detailing on the turtleneck and the blush tone of the skirt! They’re such perfect pieces that take me from the office to date night and into the weekend.

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.
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?
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*.
