Weekly Wishlist

I often spend my days fantasizing about all the pieces that I will spend my hard earned money on when I inevitably go shopping after I’m through at work. Although some may say that I have a slight addiction, I see it as merely a means of self expression as well as a way of channeling my creativity.

The following is a list of my current obsessions. Receipt of these items will be confirmed at a later date.

1. Sweet Summer Sundress

Transitional Dressing

Hey Pals,

As you all must know, I oddly love the awkward period that falls in between seasons. That being said, there is nothing more important than knowing how to dress during this weird transitional time… IT IS SO CONFUSING! I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent throwing clothes onto my floor and in turn, being late, because the weather is just so….. “Is it warm??” “Is it cold?” “Can I pull out my spring jacket? Do I even need a jacket?” “Do I dare start wearing my cut offs yet????”

These are all very important, pressing questions and if you don’t know the answers, it can take you hours to decide on your outfit in the morning.

Well, I’m here to help. Since it’s still quite chilly here in the T Dot, layers are key. You will be pleased to learn that at this point, you MAY retire your winter jacket as we all know that everyone is sick and tired of shlepping that thing around!!!

This outfit, with a light camo jacket and a pair of wedged sneakers was perfect to get me through a chilly early spring day.

To survive this awkward time, these are some essential items you must covet:

1. A plain white silky blouse to wear under sweaters or on their own. When it starts getting a bit warmer, pair with cut offs and lace up combat boots (or wedge sneakers).

2. A green/khaki camo type jacket. Light yet does the trick on those chillier days.

3. Wedge sneakers- Wear with dresses/shorts before its hot enough for sandals

4. Bright coloured scarves- my favourite colours of the season are bright yellow and seafoam green. These colours will add a fresh springy vibe to any outfit! 

5. Jewellery. Lots and lots of jewellery. Duh. – this goes for any season! You can never be wearing too many rings. And never underestimate the power of some good arm candy (I just picked up some amazing pieces from Nordstrom BP while I was in Delray Beach, FL).

HAPPY SPRING!!!

Singing for Spring!!!!

Greetings world! I am back and ready to blog!!

 

The past year has been a whirlwind of ups and downs- one of the best years of my life however not without many challenges to overcome. But enough on that.

I’ve been very inspired as of late, and I have a funny feeling it has to do with the changing of seasons. It may sound odd, but I love that transitional period of time that falls in between seasons. Something about the anticipation… and standing by as winter slowly turns to spring. That eagerness that soon you will be sitting on a sunny patio and strolling the streets sans a heavy, burdening coat. Although it is still quite chilly here in Toronto (bordering 10-12 degrees celsius), theres something comforting and hopeful about the the anticipation of the sunny spring days to come. I can’t wait to be overwhelmed by the delicious smell of fresh blooming flowers! Most of all, I can’t wait to start entertaining the thought of wearing that sundress that has been sitting in my closet, calling my name, just BEGGING to be worn.

Wish I were here. In Paris.... Sigh.

Wish I were here. In Paris…. Sigh.

Keep watching my blog this season because I have lots to share!!!

TREND ALERT: Ombré Nails

Ombré is the new black! If you haven’t been living under a rock, you are well aware that ombré hair colour is here to stay!

Now ombré nails are making their way onto the scene. They’re edgy, fun and a sure way to spice up your boring solid coloured manicure.

I went with the black/grey/silver theme today.

You can also mix colours or go with a gradient effect using each nail as a different shade of your main colour.

Whichever style you choose to go with, your ombré is sure to create nail envy, wherever you go!
