Dress Up

Though the weather has suggested otherwise this past week, I’m calling it – Winter is dead! I’m always the first to jump the gun on sunny weather, stripping down to show as much skin as possible even when it’s far too early to reasonably do so. What can I say, I LOVE the feeling of warmth on my skin! I need to be free! Winter jackets and long johns have been stifling me for far too long (says the girl who spent most of the winter in California…)

This season I’m trying to be extra selective when adding to my wardrobe. Now that i find myself living in a pocket-size apartment, so I’m only accepting really special pieces and elegant staples, and I try to shed something worn out every time I bring in something new. This rose satin wrap dress from LULU by Rana falls somewhere in-between – the cut is both modern and classic, and the longer sleeve length makes it an ideal transitional Spring item. Paired with a trench (because Spring layering is crucial), ballet-inspired pumps from ALDO, the perfect ’70s inspired mani from Chillhouse and hints of tortoise shell & gold, this look is simple but still fun.

Because really, what’s the point in getting dressed if it’s not fun, right?

Dress Up

You’ve heard me complain about the lack of colour here in Toronto many a time, so you can imagine the thrill I felt upon learning Crown Flora (a super dreamy local plant shop) decided to paint their entire massive Parkdale storefront pink!

Conveniently I’d just so happened to pick up an amazing strappy slip dress from Nasty Gal while in LA that perfectly matched Toronto’s newest destination photo wall, so I got all dolled up and took to the Parkdale hot spot!

Paired with over-the-knee boots from ALDO (a new staple in my wardrobe), a perfect plain white tee, and the ultimate team jacket from Bow and Drape, this rosy transitional outfit was just the thing to lift my spirits re: the gloomy weather we’ve been having.
