Easter Stripes with a Pop Of Colour

With Good Friday tomorrow it is time to celebrate Easter with good food and family! With Easter usually comes dinners, brunches and an excuse to get a little dressed up! I have teamed up with Miss Boss to bring you a beautiful option for an Easter outfit this weekend!

Monochromic stripes are such a great option, in my opinion, for any outing casual or dressy and this BB Dakota Jaxson Striped Dress is utter perfection. A thick and stretchy material, it is perfect for a comfy laid back option with sneakers or a dressier look like this one that we have put together! (I also love that its not tight especially if you are conscious of your mid section like this mama!!) It allows you an easy to pair base with any other piece in your wardrobe, patterned (floral would be adorable too) or colour! (It snowed the day we took these photos so I added some leggings and boots however a cute pair of ankle booties without the leggings would be a great option too if the weather is warmer where you are!). Also keep in mind I am 5’10 so the dress came a bit high on me but for anyone smaller it would be a great fit without the need to wear anything underneath!

Now lets talk accessories! This coral Matt and Nat Abiko clutch is the perfect pop of pink for this Easter weekend! I love the clutch handle and the three pockets that allow you to fit everything you need! I paired this outfit with knee high boots and a sparkly necklace and earrings to dress it up a bit (all accessories are linked below), you could also get away with a pop of colour with your accessories too. See what I mean, the options are endless!

Lastly lets talk about this bomber. I mean what can you say, this BB Dakota Troy Jacket is perfection! I loved the cropped length, perfect to be paired with a dress like this one or a t-shirt and jeans! I also love the beautiful silver detailed zipper and drawstring bottom. This is a jacket that will transition flawlessly from spring to summer to fall and the neutral black colouring will compliment any outfit! Definitely a wardrobe staple for sure!

Ive posted the remaining details of my outfit below, I hope you all have a wonderful Easter filled weekend with yummy food and much love!

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!

Spring Plaid Jacket – Rebecca King

I have been anxiously awaiting nice weather to take this jacket out for a spin and to say the least I am obsessed, I mean how could you not be! This jacket was a Christmas gift from the hubby and something I had had my eye on since it was released!

This plaid jacket was designed by Rebecca King, a designer out of Saskatchewan (yay Canada!) whose eye for quality material, versatile pieces and stunning design is sheer perfection. Oh and did I mention its currently on sale!!

I decided to pair the jacket with my favourite Vince Camuto over the knee boots that just so happen to match the elbow pad patch, added some more pattern with my Matt & Nat cork clutch and some neutral bracelets by Eliasz and Ella! Its such a versatile piece with such a fun pattern, it will be a wardrobe essential of mine for years to come!

Hope you enjoy!

Transitioning into Spring: Flares

Spring has sprung in Edmonton and the weather for the most part has been amazing minus a little overnight snow fall!!!

Spring can be a more difficult time to dress because it is still cooler in the morning and at night. It is too cold to wear sandals and shorts but warm enough you don’t want to wear a jacket! This combo is ideal for transitioning into spring and I am loving flare jeans paired with a thick wedge and flowy top!

Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!

Styling A Bodysuit

Can we please take a moment to thank the hair gods for letting my hair grow to a length that I can finally curl it!!!! Yipeee!! No more justin bieber side part (well at least not everyday now)!!!

Haha any who! My last couple fashion posts have been pretty casual so I wanted to spice things up with this gorgeous bodysuit from Express Clothing. I am loving the criss-cross front that can be dressed up or dressed down and also adds a little sexiness..Oooo!!! Bodysuits have really come along way and are such a great alternative to a top.

I am a huge fan of body suits especially when it comes to work because tucking a shirt in all the time is super annoying and having the lines from your shirt show through your pants because its not perfectly flat and tucked, no thank you! Body suits are also very flattering and reasonably priced as well. It took me a while to find one I loved and I just recently was told that Express is carrying a whole line of bodysuits so I am sure I will be adding more to my collection! I have linked all of the outfit details below!

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!
