Triangl Bikini

i have been meaning to do this post for some time now, i was just waiting for the weather to get a little bit warmer. it's only march here in canada so we are no where near beach weather but definitely an improvement from winter.  For those lucky enough living in warmer climates or heading off on vacation soon you can use this information right now... for everyone else (like me!) still in the cold you can keep it in mind for the upcoming summer :)
Triangl bikinis have been around for some time now,  you would have seen them if you have any form of social media particularly instagram. i received this one a couple of months ago but i am lucky enough to own 2 pairs. i own Milly in santa rosa splash, which you can see in a blog post here! and this one which is also Milly in pretty in paris.
i am a huge fan of triangl bikinis ! they are made out of Neoprene (the stuff wetsuits are made out of) and they mold to your body perfectly, i was a little afraid that the top would be too big on me  but the XS moulded to my body perfectly (i am a 32B.) Also the good thing about Neoprene is that you don't have to worry about your bikini sliding around ! bonus for waterslides and jumping in and out of the pool.
For all of you feeling a little skeptical about the high prices and if they are worth the money.... i think you are paying for the quality and not the brand, there is a reason these bikinis have such a high price mark. The bikinis are so perfectly made and the material/stitching is incredible. i know there are some "mock" ones out there and while i have not tried them i have seen them in store and the quality just isn't quite there... don't get me wrong!  they are great bikinis! and for a lower price they are a great option. But if you really want to invest in quality i would recommend triangl :)
Overall i am very pleased and happy with triangl bikinis and how cute is the packaging they come in!

Angora pink

It is a windy day here.... when will the days of flowy summer dresses come.... i don't know but i am patiently waiting. The beginning of spring is always an interesting time here, some days are warm and some days give you flashbacks of winter. When its super cold outside i tend to hide inside under a blanket (or i try to anyway haha) for this outfit i grabbed this light pink angora sweater because its incredibly soft and the colours seemed appropriate from spring. i layered it overtop of a sleeveless blouse with a bow tied at the front for a femenine if the light pink wasn't enough haha. i grabbed one of my favourite shorts, houndstooth of course and i cant help but get 90's vibes when wearing this outfit.  (now i want to watch cluless...) Not to mention the white pompom attached to my purse. This past weekend was very uneventful i went shopping all day friday and then to dinner at all you can eat japanese restaurant. Saturday and sunday were fairly relaxed and spent some time with family :)

Pink coat for spring

The spring time is the perfect opportunity to experiment with different colours and to be a little bolder with your outfits. i am obsessed with this pink coat, its a great statement piece that goes perfectly with so many outfits.  i paired it with this Argyle sweater that has the same pink on it with a camel colour and white. The sweater is a v neck and it looked a bit bear when i put the jacket on so i layered a sleeveless blouse with a collar on it underneath, and i think it is the perfect pairing. For the first time this year i put on a skirt with no tights! yayy for warmer weather!! by doing this i realized how pale i really am lol i need a tan so badly haha... i reflect light. As for shoes, of course i needed my heels so i grabbed some tan ones to bring that colour back into the outfit as well as i chose the same colour for the bag.  Ant to to top it off i added a white headband !
I hope you all have an amazing weekend (its a long weekend here) filled with warm weather and a bit of shopping ;)

Pink and Houndstooth

i've been trying to incorporate some lighter colours into my outfits because spring starts this weekend! only a few more days till the trees start blooming! the weather can be a bit chillier at times so light coloured jackets are key this time of year! i love the look of a white coat but i find myself being extra careful with whats around me and the things i touch because i'm always scared of getting it dirty. I am obsessed with this houndstooth skirt it has such a 90's vibe to it, it could've easily been part of the wardrobe in clueless. Since the rest of the outfit was very light i felt that black tights would be too harsh so i opted for some thin light gray tights, which i think compliment the outfit perfectly. Now for my scarf, probably my favourite scarf out of all of the ones i own! it is so soft and the shade of pink is perfect.

Bright Red Coat

Its a rainy day and i can hear a thunder storm starting... occasionally i  love a day where i can staying inside and just lazy around while there is an intense thunder storm. i don't know why i just find it some comforting, especially thunder storms at night <3 its a bit colder this week so i pulled out my long red coat and extra high heels, i love that look because it is so elongating. i've always wanted to be tall but my body stopped growing once i hit 5'5... not short but not exactly tall. So any opportunity to make myself appear taller i will take haha.
its the first day of spring this sunday and i know i said i wouldn't but i already started spring shopping, let me know if you guys would like me to incorporate some haul type posts.

Navy and Green

Spring is just a week away and i can't contain my excitement! i am ready for flowers and for the trees to actually have leaves on them! but as much as i complain about the cold weather it is nice to live somewhere where we have all 4 seasons. By the end of the summer i am bored of summer clothes and want fall clothing... which is the position i am in now, i am so bored of winter clothing and i am ready for pastels and summer dresses. i am sure that if i lived somewhere where is was mostly warm  such as in LA i would get bored of summer clothes and be sad when i see cute layered fall/winter clothing because i wouldn't be able to wear it!  but you know some people really love summer weather... i do hate snow with a passion.

Since it has been a tad bit warmer the past few days... not below 0! wooo. i have been trying to wear  tights that are a bit more sheer because i think it adds such nice interest to any outfit. i was in a bit of a rut where i would constantly grab black tights because i was scared of getting my coloured ones dirty with the snow... i have to stop worrying and just live. This is one of my favourite tights but i unfortunately don't wear them often enough i love the effect that the lines give, i think it looks so cute and a bit less obvious than  navy tights would have been.  You know what i've  been trying to find!  navy pointy  heels!  i don't know why this is so hard to find !  i have found some rounded toe ones but i want pointy ones so if you see some out there let a girl knowwww! speaking of navyyyy i want to buy every piece of navy clothing i see, in my opinion you can match many more colours to navy than black. Black can be a bit harsh sometimes depending on the colour you pair it with, but navy usually flows perfectly. For this outfit i tried to keep it simple by just using two colours and then adding a neutral (but fun!) pair of tights.
