Spring Lookbook

I know its a little bit late but its finally warm here in Canada ! I always see spring lookbooks and people wear sleeveless dresses and shorts and its like we don't all live in LA where spring is pretty much summer, so I thought I would share a realistic Canadian spring lookbook. For the first look (which happens to be my favourite)  I wore this houndstooth print skirt with a red mock neck long sleeved shirt. For the most part it's warm enough to wear bare legs but I would rather keep myself a bit warmer with a long sleeved top, both pieces are from H&M. I also pulled out a black beret (last time for the season... tear) which I thought matched the style perfectly, that one is from Coach. To finish the look off I grabbed my mini black backpack (from Spring)  and strappy heels (from Le Chateau)

The second look is my second favourite look of the lookbook, its a bit more casual than I normally wear, I  actually decided to give the clear glasses trend a try. I've worn them in a previous post but I am obsessed with how it looks with a ponytail and the entire outfit. These round glasses are from Wear me pro and they are so cute! I can't wait to wear them again ! I wore them with this light beige long sleeved shirt an a white denim skirt (both from H&M.) To keep the rest of the outfit light I draped this denim jacket over my shoulders, I got this jacket while I was in Peru from The Gap and its taking everything in me not to wear it every day.

The third outfit is a little more colourful, I wore this Long sleeved red shirt (the same as the first outfit) and paired it with this pink midi skirt form Zara.  I've been obsessed with this red and pink combination lately, I'm not sure why (yes I know I look like a valentines day card) I think its so cute and girly. To add some interest to the outfit I paired it with this red and gold embellished cross body bag that I got at a boutique in niagara on the lake. To add to the theme I wore red heels and some pale nude coloured sunnies from Aerie. Aerie actually has a lot of really cute sunglasses!  One of my new favourite places to stop by when i'm at the mall.

The fourth outfit is a little more formal, but still a bit more edgy with the black patent skirt. I got this skirt from Express and its so cute! I cannot tell you how long I looked for a skirt like this and I'm so happy I found it ! I paired it with a plain light blue blouse from H&M and a clear purse from Zara. Since the outfit is really minimal I really wanted to play with the accessories! You guys know I've been really into these metal embellished headbands (they remind me of tiaras and who doesn't want to be a princes.... am I right) I grabbed a silver one because I thought it matched the light blue tones a bit better and also added these dangly pear earrings that have a bit of silver jewels at the top.

The last look is a bit more "scholarly" Definitely a nod at ivy prep fashion. Ivy prep is my favourite style to wear in the fall so I thought i would try to apply it to my spring wardrobe. Although the colours aren't particularly light for spring I still think its a great spring outfit ! I wore this lace cropped shirt that has beautiful flared sleeves ! (from zara) and I paired it with my favourite denim skirt from H&M (you guys have seen it countless times) For a little warmth I wore this thin grey blazer from Topshop that has this awesome tiger patch on the side. I again gave the clear glasses trend a try, I've been seeing these aviator glasses all over instagram and I just had to try them ! I love how they compliment the outfit giving it more school vibes.

so those are all the looks i hope you guys like them let me know in the comments which looks is your favourite! I also added a video below if you want to see the looks in action ! Make sure to subscribe to my channel because there will be a couple of birthday videos going up on there next week !

Strawberry Lemonade

Spring is in full bloom and the trees have filled with beautiful coloured flowers. I stumbled across this tree that stood on a blanket of soft light pink flowers, As you may know light pink is my favourite colour so my heart skipped a beat when I saw it!  I was wearing this Lemon printed dress from Metisu and it is the Yellow double strap lemon print skater dress (Link here) which happens to be THE perfect summer dress!  With the weather getting warmer I've been so inspired by summer dresses and the pretty colours they come in. My favourite style is anything that has a slight fit and flare shape to it which gives it a more girly/feminine look. Another thing that has really got me thinking about summer is my birthday, in my mind summer starts when my birthday arrives (June 1st  woooooooooo) although I know summer doesn't officially start till later in birthday always reminds me of school ending and warmer days. Make sure you follow me on instagram and subscribe to my  youtube channel to see what i'm up to this coming up weekend for my birthday !

Two-Toned Denim

Ah how amazing are these two toned jeans ! As some of you may know I've been trying to get into wearing more jeans lately and I've been able to find some really cool looking jeans which has really enticed me to wear them more often. One of my favourite pairs right now are these two toned jeans which match pretty much everything while giving the outfit a lot of interest! I got these pants from Shein and they are the Paneled raw hem jeans (link here)  they have an amazing loose fit which makes them incredibly comfortable ! Denim on denim is such a huge trend right now but if you're not ready to wear the Canadian tuxedo then this is a great alternative which allows you to still rock the trend but in a much more subtle way. I paired the pants with this ruffled white blouse from Zara and a pair of nude heels. Its a super casual outfit which was perfect for running errands.

Floral City

I feel like I'm walking in a field of flowers when wearing this dress. It has a certain "modern victorian" feel to it with the beautifully detailed flowers and the fit and flare shape, But its also very indicative of the 50's. If you've been following my blog for a while you know I always  gravitate towards more vintage items so this dress is a dream come true. I love dresses that have a tailed shape to them as you have probably noticed I am a BIG fan of synching in my waist with a ribbon and tying it in a bow, I did the same thing with this dress just for a little bit more interest.  I got this dress from Metisu and it is the blue sleeveless floral pattern swing midi dress (Link here) . The quality is amazing and the fit is even better ! I know I'll be wearing this dress over and over again through the spring and summer. I paired this dress with some nude heels that way the focus stays on the dress! I also wore these gold and pink earrings from Happiness boutique  (Link to earrings here) I thought they matched the colours on the dress perfectly ! I was walking through the city in this dress and I felt like I was surrounded by flowers.

NEW IN: Military Jacket

One of the newest additions to my closet is this bright red military jacket!  I've always been obsessed with the Victorian era and the fashion from that time, The puffy dresses, pastel colours and sky high hair.  I take a lot of inspiration from female fashion of that time for spring/summer, But mens fashion was also very interesting and I take inspiration from that during the fall/winter. This military jacket is very indicative of those times and I love the detailing at the front, although it is not fall or winter I just simply couldn't pass it up ! This little cropped jacket is from Bershka (link here)   it also comes in Navy blue (I regret not getting both TBH) I paired the jacket with a white ruffled chiffon blouse which matched the style perfectly. I've actually had this blouse in my closet for numerous years and never get tired of wearing it! Since its getting warmer I opted for some simple black high waisted shorts and topped it off with a cabby hat !

Sugar Plum

I never gave it much thought but.... there really aren't many things that are the colour purple. I even noticed that finding cute purple clothes are hard to find. I remember back in high school I wanted to find a lavender prom dress, think Miley Cyrus's purple dress in the last song... that is literally what I wanted to wear for prom. I unfortunately was unsuccessful and ended up wearing a white one with a mauve ribbon tied around the waist. When I saw this purple sweater at H&M I knew I had to have it!  (link here) I am lacking some purple clothes in my closet and I fell in love with all the ruffles and its girly nature. I paired it with this medium wash denim skirt from Make Me Chic  (Link Here) It's actually currently on sale for an amazing price! I love the fit and the distressed hem not only on the bottom of the skirt but also the back pockets, which is such a fun detail ! I also wore these purple and brown sunglasses from Wear Me Po (link here) that match perfectly with the whole outfit !
