Mint Obsessed Spring 2017

Is anyone else ready for spring?! This year more than ever, I am so excited for the coming spring and summer season because I am on maternity leave and will get to enjoy the entire summer off with my little love, something I have not done since I was a teenager!! I am so looking forward to spending our time 0utside, enjoying the sun, being active and sharing in new places and adventures with my little man!

I am also a huge fan of spring fashion, the pastel colours, bright patterns and I am currently so drawn to that light blue/mint colour in literally every piece of clothing and accessory so I have put together my favs below for you to enjoy!!

Hope you have a great rest of your week & weekend!

Camo Love

The second I saw this t shirt I knew I had to have it! Oh the possibilities! Dressing it up or down I would have countless ways to wear this top. Not to mention it is probably the softest material of t shirt I own and available right here in Edmonton! This Z Supply Camo Tee also comes one Blue and White as well as a sleeveless camo version, all available at Miss Boss!!

Hope you guys enjoy!! xo

 

The first look I wanted to do with this tee was a bit dresser. I paired it with this black midi skirt from Forever 21 (keep in mind you could also throw this tee over a dress as well to add some pattern as well) and added some gold details which I am currently obsessed with! (Outfit Details Below!)

1 Year Anniversary & Some Exciting News!!!

I literally cannot believe it has been one year since I posted my very first post, where in the heck has the time gone?!!!

When I started this blog I really had no idea what I was doing or what I was getting myself into!!  I just knew that I wanted to do it and I wasn’t going to let anyone or anything to stop me (Im stubborn and strong headed like that!)  Initially it was really tough, almost like riding a roller coaster trying to anticipate the curves and drops, manage the blog on top of family and work but I slowly found my groove! I have gained so much respect for other bloggers especially those that balance jobs, life and family. Most people do not realize the time, commitment and dedication it takes to maintain a blog and I quickly learned I was going to have to be much more organized in order to make B&B a success!

Throughout this last year I have learned so much and have really grown as an individual. This blog has truly made me a better person and has been nothing short of a blessing in my life. I have met so many amazing and beautiful people and that has inspired me to expand B&B into offering Personal Style Consulting!!! I am elated to finally offer this service to help women achieve confidence as well as look and feel great in their wardrobe.

Thank you so much for following me on this amazing journey and heres to hoping it never ends!

My Shopping Secret

Today I am sharing my biggest shopping secret including how I got this skirt for $8!

One of the best things you can do for your wallet is shop out of season. What does this mean?! Buy winter clothes in the spring and summer clothes in the fall/winter. This may seem like a downer as you have to wait until the following season to wear your pieces, however you will get the greatest discounts and your wallet will thank you! This time of year is when all of the winter accessories/coats/boots will start to go on sale and the closer to spring the greater the discount as stores want to get rid of their inventory for their new lines that are coming in!

I have tried to find this exact skirt online and it is sold out so I have linked several similar options all for under $10!
