Easter is such a refreshing holiday - flowers are blooming and the soft scent of spring is in the air. This Easter I'll be heading to the Okanagan to spend some time with my family and friends which I am super excited about - nothing says Easter dinner like Turkey and wine! Obviously as we all know Easter traditions change as you go from a child to an adult so I thought this would be a fun way to keep the traditions alive (at least until I have children!). I mean, who wouldn't want a basket full of chocolate, wine, and other goodies?! This would make the perfect gift for a girlfriend or hostess, or Gentleman - the perfect Easter treat for your girl.

For a period of my life (16-18) I was obsessed with Nicole Richie and her super chic, boho vibes. Lately I've been all about the boho, relaxed, beachy style. Now if only the weather would match my urge to wear shorts and sandals than we'd be all good!

I am SO excited that we brought back this GORGEOUS tee to Cake For Breakfast! This is definitely one of my all time favorite pieces - it's so perfect when you're looking for a pretty, neutral punch of graphic. This tee can really be dressed for any occasion. I loved the relaxed feel of pairing it with destroyed denim and an oversized light jacket. PS yes those are shorts.. it was like 18 degrees the other day!

Shades Of Blue //

Friday, 6 March 2015

Skirt: Lulu*s c/o | Jacket: Nordstrom (sold out, similar1similar2) | Tee: H&M | Necklaces: Katie Dean Jewelry c/o & Aldo (old, but also love this!) Bracelet: Elizabeth Stone c/o | Sunnies: Maccs

There's not much more that I love than a gorgeous sunny day in Vancouver. The other day the sun was shining so it was the perfect excuse to wear this beautiful blue maxi skirt from Lulu*s. The skirt is so feminine and whimsical that I decided to toughen it up a bit with a moto jacket and some fierce sunnies. Also how amazing is this double spike necklace from Katie Dean?! I am obsessing over all her pieces and how they are the perfect mix of delicate and edgy.

I don't think there's anything that gives me more peace than a clean and organized desk, actually make that a clean and organized anything! This has been my desk situation for the past little while and I've been loving the simplicity of it.

Coffee Date //

Friday, 27 February 2015

Coat: H&M (old, similar) | Shirt: Levis (old, similar) | Jeans: Rag & Bone | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Shoes: Loly In The Sky | Watch: Michael Kors (sold out, similar) | Earrings: Jcrew (sold out, but also loving these!) | Rings: Forever21 (old, similar) | Sunnies: Forever21

I have had this camel blazer/coat for what seems like forever and hardly wore it until as of late. I love re-falling in love with a piece from long ago and seeing it in a whole new light! I'm the type of person that loves getting rid of clothes - clearing out anything I don't wear to make room for new pieces - it makes me feel refreshed. Now looking back on photos I see items I would love again if I still had them ha! Oh well - such is life. Happy Thursday!
