NYX Prom

Top, Smart Set. Skirt, Diane von Furstenberg. Clutch, Dior. Sandals, Dolce Vita. Necklace c/o Happiness Boutique. Ring, Samantha Wills.

Had the pleasure of attending prom hosted by NYX Cosmetics held at a lovely venue on Queen St E in Toronto.  For the look, I did not want to go with a traditional style dress so instead I opted for a top + skirt combo for that two piece effect. Paired a Diane von Furstenberg gold tiered skirt (circa 2010) with a simple black knit tank threaded with gold to compliment the skirt. Dior clutch and lace up sandals with some statement jewelry completed the look. With prom coming up, what are you planning to wear?
The inside was illuminated with pink lighting and decor, equipped with photo booths, makeup stations and resinated with the baddest jams from the 90's. Amongst some really vibrant makeup, of special note were the pink makeup sponges. Ummm...how adorable!?

Spent the day hanging out in downtown Toronto taking in some old familiar sights and truly got that Spring feeling wearing this boho kimono style top with the sunshine beating down on me. Loving the effortlessly stylish look that is so easily achieved by layering this Casablanca top over a simple white dress. It would also look great with a crop and shorts but I'll save that for slightly warmer double digits. I paired the look with the City Girl shoe which also happens to be from Pink Martini,a  crochet detailed saddle bag, and turquoise detailed jewelry for that bohemian vibe. Glad that it's Friday again and looking forward to the weekend - what are you plans?

Retro Print Maxi Dress

Very Volatile Libbylou Boot
 
Dress, here. Bag, Sole Society. Boots, Very Volatile. Sunnies, Gucci.

Been on the hunt for the perfect maxi dress that gives off boho vibes, and I found it here. Also really loving the side slit action on both sides, and planning the countless shoe styling possibilities (ankle boots in spring, lace ups and gladiators in the summer). Wore this to a last minute day trip to wine country, and it couldn't have worked out more perfectly for our travels.

Spring Feeling

Top, Sunnies, Lulus. Skirt, Zara. Booties, Very Volatile. Necklace, Bag c/o Pinkstix.

Spent a lovely afternoon in downtown Toronto which also turned into into my first Magnolia spotting of the season. Every year I make it a point to catch these trees as they blossom, but all I ever seem to find is the one flower that is still clinging on for dear life off a bare tree with a sea of pink petals on the ground. These trees do not stay in bloom for long, and I was simply elated when we caught these by sheer fluke - and on a day we were shooting! As for the outfit, I am wearing the top part of a two-piece lace dress paired with a button front denim skirt, and these Very Volatile western style ankle boots I picked up from Nordstrom the other day - they have immediately become my favourite shoe.

Pink Leopard Spots

Top, Topshop. Jeans, Diesel. Flats, Zara. Belt, Mexx. Purse, Rebecca Minkoff. Sunglasses, Celine. Bracelet c/o Pinkstix. Ring, Child of Wild.

After what seemed like an eternity of winter it was nice nice to finally shelf those knits in lieu of silk tops and the ability to forgo outwear. For this evening out I wore a pair of Diesel flared jeans with a pink leopard silk top. I debated over heels vs flats for the longest time and in the end settled for lace up ballet flats as I had been going for a more casual dressed down sorta look. Although I'm sure this getup would have looked more chic with a pair of black strappy heels.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
