Woke up bright and early to shoot in front of this gorgeous bubblegum-coloured backdrop. I've always fancied bright coloured things, but never for anything clothing related so when Wendy suggested to stop by this building, I was in absolute love. I wore my typical neutral, black and white ensemble so this was perfect against the pink. Now that the weather is warming up, I'm taking full advantage of light Spring jackets or shirts and tying it around my waist as a just-in-case for those breezy mornings and evenings.

Dress: Wilfred Laurette dress
Shoes: RED Valentino velvet flocked booties (similar)
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody bag

Since Toronto Fashion Week, I've been looking for an excuse to re-wear my outfit sans leggings. Last weekend was my chance since it was a high of 18 degrees and was still cool enough to warrant a leather jacket and booties! Lately, I have been obsessed with lace slips because of it's relaxed silhouette and how easy it is to throw on. I've been searching for more online, but nothing compares to this one by Wilfred. It's ultra-lightweight and perfect with a leather jacket or even an oversized knit sweater. I also picked a blush pink version from the Babaton line and can't wait to wear it this weekend!

Shoes: Topshop 'Margot' leather booties
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody bag

As much as I am trying to inject colour into my spring wardrobe, I can't pass up on an opportunity to wear neutrals. After an entire year, I was finally able to pull out my Babaton trench coat from the closet last weekend and decided to wear it over a simple white tee with some black pieces. The muted tones against the grey concrete looks amazing, don't you think?

In Full Bloom

When I hear "Spring", I immediately think of light pastel colours and florals. Whether it's flowers blooming in the season or floral printed pieces. Spring after spring, the uplifting print has never failed us. On the SS'15 runways, I remember seeing a lot of 3D floral prints on crop tops or muted floral prints on midi skirts. For Valentino, it was vibrant-coloured florals on cross body bags and dresses; Chloe it was white floral crochet, and Alice + Olivia – flirty and fun crop tops and flouncy dresses. Sometimes floral prints can come off rather old and dated, but I believe that if you find the right cut and shape for your figure, it will look modern and feminine. These three favourite designers did a fabulous job keeping the youth in these pieces while pulling in ‘60s and ‘70s influences.

This season, I’ve partnered with Winners to discover floral #WINNERSFabFinds at their locations. While mining through their racks and racks of clothing, I found these perfect trendy pieces for the spring:

Ever since the move, I've been spending my weekends either being adventurous and out exploring the city or being a homebody. I love the city, but most days, I enjoy the comfort and simple pleasures of being indoors so I can catch up on Netflix or blogging. Yesterday, I woke up and slipped into a button-down white shirt, a pair of ripped jeans and made myself a cup of roasted milk tea to start my day. I tend to feel most inspired to shoot and blog on weekend mornings and/or afternoons when there's a lot of natural light. This was the same when I lived at home, except I rarely received daylight because of where my room was located in the house. To be totally truthful, this was actually an important factor when we were determining where to live because I wanted a space where I could be motivated to blog more. As of late, I've been encouraged to do more planning and photos because the sun did not set until 7PM so hopefully I can keep this up. I want to get to a point where I can be posting more often than once or twice a week to keep the content fresh and interesting. If you have any suggestions on what you'd like to see more of, comment below!

The Shoe Diary

April 17, 2015

Untitled Over the last few years, I have really become a shoe-holic. I used to own a handful of shoes and wear them over and over again until they're worn out. Now, I'm finding myself splurging on shoes (and bags) instead of clothes. It's true - they are the best accessory to perfect your outfit.
