Beat the heat

August 3, 2011

In high summer, there’s nothing like a long, flowing maxi skirt to keep you cool. I love this patterned skirt not only for its lovely shades of green, but because it has two hidden pockets. Perfect for hiding treasures while you explore, or a pair of sunglasses while wandering in and out of shops.

Head to toe H&M excluding Delux fedora, Fossil watch, Spring ring, and Toms

This little ring is one of my favorites lately. It pairs perfectly with blue or green tones, as well as floral prints. And I just realized now that my nails kind of match the skirt, both are a broken shattered pattern!

I hope you’re having a great week, and going on your own adventures in the sun!


I can see the light

May 11, 2011

Well what do you know, it’s finally spring!

Sorry I have been M.I.A. lately…. Work has been super busy! I was sent out of town for business, then I got sick, then when I was finally home I had a lot of commitments and that left me no time for blogging. But I’m super excited not only to be back here blogging, but to be collaborating with a friend of mine that’s a photographer to do some fun photo shoots! I have lots of great ideas so I will be posting regularly again. Oh, and did I mention I’m going to Mexico?

For now here is a sneak peek at some of my inspiration for the spring:

I would love to pack up a bag like this one from Fossil and go away for the weekend

This is the pool I will be lounging in when I’m in Mexico ūüôā

I have five little daisy’s sprouting in this nifty little pot I got at H&M with their Conscious Collection. grow little flowers!!!

That’s all for now, I hope you are enjoying all the spring showers! That can only mean one thing, a glorious summer is up ahead!


Spring feeling

January 24, 2011

It’s like this every year. Our first glimpse of sun and decent temperatures (around 10 degrees) and the west coast is transformed into full on spring! I am so excited to switch my wardrobe to all the cute spring items I have stored away, if only the weather would co-operate!

With spring also comes spring cleaning. I really do need to go through my wardrobe each season and have a toss, sell, or keep bag. I find I hold onto many items of clothing because I am attached. However I need to make room for some of the cute new things I have been finding lately!!

One of my favorite purchases this year hasn’t even arrived in the mail. I have been following blogger Jen from JenLovesKev for a while now, and she became one of Mod Cloth’s Blogger’s of the Month the other week and had a dress named after her. It really fits with her style, which I love, and I knew as soon as I saw the dress it would fit perfectly in my wardrobe. I can see myself wearing it all year round; with cardigans and thick tights right now or on it’s own with a simple belt or necklace in the summer.

Aren’t the little foxes adorable? It also has pockets at the front which for me is a real deciding factor. It has pockets? Done!!!

Then last weekend, I went shopping down by Seattle at the outlets and found myself a great new purse. I really love Kensie & Kensie Girl clothing, not just because they are Canadian but because they create such nice pieces that work easily into my wardrobe. I can always find something I like from Kensie. So when I found this cute purse with a little bow on it, I fell in love! It was super cheap to, around $35!! I almost bought one in a gorgeous blue but decided I really like the shape of this one.

Spring has also livened up my room with this gorgeous new Teen Vogue bed set that I won! While at Teen Vogue Fashion U, there were many displays set up in the lobby we could look at between classes. One of them was a bed with their new bed spreads you can now purchase at JCPenny stores. I entered the contest because I loved the flower print and thought it was really different. One day I came home to three big boxes and inside was this bed set! I was so surprised and happy I couldn’t help dancing around and showing it off to anyone that would look. My dreams are sweeter now that I have this lovely floral comforter to keep me warm at night.

I think the colors really compliment my purple walls, and the comforter would liven up a couch as well since it’s only a twin size. Thank you again teen Vogue for this amazing prize!!!

So that’s been my spring so far, how has everyone else been this year?


Garden Party

March 25, 2010

On March 23rd I attended the Garden Party for H&M’s new Garden Collection.

All the clothing is made of organic or recycled materials, including the plastic bags! Also, snacks such as cheese on a stick and little brownies were all made from organic food. I really like the concept H&M followed for this gorgeous and very affordable line of clothing. It really suits H&M and the image they are trying to maintain, despite a few blips in the media.

My favorite part of the night were of course, the decorations! Real grass decorated the store along with fresh cut flowers and garden accessories. It felt like I was transported to a garden in spring time where everyone is very well dressed! I also loved that the mannequins were adorned with long blond hair similar to the campaign’s model.

I loved this gorgeous red dress, but sadly can’t afford to spend my limited funds on such a fancy dress. I did however leave with a really cute nude pink tank top with flowers up the front!

I totally love the dress on the right with giant pockets, it would be perfect for gardening in!

The night was a success, now run to your nearest H&M and check out the collection in person!!


Happy St.Patrick’s Day!

March 17, 2010

Here’s a taste of how I plan on celebrating…

No green beer in my immediate future since I have class until 8pm. But you never know…



Spring has Sprung

February 25, 2010

sorry for the lack of posts, I’ve been busy enjoying a little something called the Winter Olympics that happen to be hosted in my city.

AKA I’m partying it up while I only have one class.

However there was a stretch of really nice weather that appears to be back for one day so I thought I’d live it up in this cute little dress I found. Enjoy!!
