COVETING FOR SPRING

Spring has officially arrived! I couldn’t be happier, especially since our weather has been so up and down, going from rain to snow and back again. Now that the sun is officially out, I cannot help but start thinking of things to add to my spring list of must-haves.
Most of the time when I am putting my list together, I evaluate what the next couple of months look like for me. Am I travelling, in the office or needing more casual pieces? This is where I start with accessories and move my way up to clothing. This season, nudes and white are very much in, which I love considering how much they really add a chic element to a look, completing any outfit imaginable!
The two items that I am coveting for this season are these Stuart Weitzman heels and Chloe bag. They are the perfect go-to as they can be mixed and matched into your casual wardrobe or dressed up for those special occasions; vacationing, weddings, lunch dates- you name it! This bag is another love that I simply have not been able to get out of my mind. It’s got the perfect structure and can be mixed and matched with everything seamlessly. I’ve curated my must-haves for this spring above along with some extras below!
What are your must-haves for the season? Let me know below. xoxo

5 WAYS TO GET SPRING READY

It’s time to make way for breezy silhouettes and colourful shades that come with the spring season! Now it’s just a matter of figuring out how to get properly organized! To ensure that getting ready is inspiring and stress-free, read on for essential tips on how to get your wardrobe spring ready while reclaiming your closet.

1. PURGE

As I am such a huge advocate for cleaning out my closet once per season, I truly believe that storing previous seasonal items will take away the stress that comes with spring cleaning. Take an afternoon to sort through everything in your wardrobe- moving those oversized sweaters and boots to the back of your closet, while getting rid of items that no longer serve you. As hard as it may be to part with certain items, it’s always good to donate them so they can be appreciated in a new home. This will make room for new spring pieces that will breathe new life into your everyday routine. As I’ve always said, style goes beyond the perfect outfit of the day. You really want to ensure your closet is clutter-free and looks just as chic and put together so you can do the same.

2. DECOR

Speaking for the every-day girl, I can truly say my closet is my favourite room in the house. It tells a story as much as it inspires me to put my best foot forward. When it comes to updating my space, I usually look for home decor finds that are in synch with my style and personality. These pieces are what make my space captivating and unique. It’s where I want to be before my day gets too hectic. After purging your closet, I highly recommend assessing your design concept of your closet space. Ensure you have a full length mirror, proper storage solutions for your jewelry, makeup and shoes along with a clutter-free, airy room. This will inspire you to get dressed effortlessly because finding items on the go will be a cinch!

3. LIGHTING

Lighting really helps define a space. It’s also imperative that your closet has sufficient lighting so you can locate items easily. Since some of us have a limited amount of space, you will want a light that defines that aesthetic and helps set the tone of the room. A chandelier is one of those pieces. Wayfair is such a hidden gem and you can find many styles that are affordable. As my closet is still under construction, I’ve been eyeing this light fixture to go with the overall theme.

4. EDIT + PLAN AHEAD

If there is one thing that we all have in common is a busy lifestyle. Once your closet is spring ready and organized, take some time to sift through your items and plan some looks so you won’t repeat outfits too often (ie. always jeans and a tee). Think about your upcoming week and plan outfits around staple pieces like mixing a print with a solid pant and a classic pump. Switch out pumps for flats if you’re on the go. For casual looks, you can plan around a pair of jeans etc. Have fun with it!

5. IN WITH THE NEW

Once your closet feels simplified, trust me when I say your life will not be the same! Not only does a clear, seasonal ready closet make everything more manageable, your closet will most certainly have that boutique experience. What is better than shopping in your own closet? After following the first couple of steps, you can now add new items that you’ve been coveting for spring. I’ve been eyeing this bagheels and wrap dress. Perfect for my chosen colour palette for the season.

THE PINK BOMBER

BOMBER | SWEATER | SKIRT | BOOTS | CHOKER | RINGS (1,2)

I’ve always believed that confidence comes from within, but it never hurts to have the right outfit! There’s just something about wearing that special piece that can really elevate your mood for that perfect outfit of the day! Personally my favourite looks are when I can marry two completely different styles into one to achieve that effortless, chic vibe. These can be pieces that are a little understated, something a little more fashion forward or sophisticated. Mix that with a piece that is a little unexpected and you have that perfect #ootd! Today’s look is all about that.

While I normally keep my style polished, there are days when I want to put on something with a tad more drama. It can be a piece with an interesting shape, fabric or cute detailing. So naturally when I was online shopping, I spotted this number from Dynamite and couldn’t resist! I love the tie up details in the front, not to mention the pretty shade of pink; perfect for spring! Bombers are becoming such a universal piece of clothing and this one is the perfect combination of sweet and sexy. It features just the right amount to make a bold statement without overpowering your whole outfit. Depending on how I style my look for the day, I can wear this jacket pretty much anywhere!
What do you think about pink bombers for spring? Do share. xoxo
