things i love right now

the things i love right now definitely scream “spring is here!” – i’m ready for the weather to brighten, and the windows in our downtown apartment to stay open 24/7. here are just a few things that make my life more sparkly.

estée lauder’s spring pastel polishes are just so pretty. i’m especially loving the pink shade (narcissist) on my fingers! aerin lauder’s spring style palette smells of roses and is such a nice little spring treat. i plan to use it for an upcoming long weekend getaway with my love | i wear these nike free run runners to the gym, on walks with my pup, ava, and even to run errands they’re so stylish. i love the neon pink! | we picked up this rug from ikea about a month ago, and i love the print – it’s in our office and really makes the space feel stylish and special. plus, it was only $70! | i’ve been meaning to frame my cocoa and hearts painting for, um, over a year. an ikea frame wouldn’t do it justice so we got it custom framed at opus, which is a local art shop. it was about $40 to do, and for a special piece of art, it’s completely worth it. right now it sits in my home office, and it makes me happy every time i see it | m.a.c’s new ‘japanese maple’ lippy is a beautiful creamy beige-nude and made the perfect addition to my professional makeup kit


fashion friday: what to wear to a wedding

spring wedding what to wear

it’s wedding season! this little ‘what to wear’ spring wedding feature includes a great floral print, and a neon belt to wrap around the mint or cream dress (YES, you can wear white to a wedding!).

i am a firm believer that you shouldn’t need to purchase a new outfit for a wedding… unless you’re the bride of course! build the look around an item most of us have in our closet: a summer dress. pair it with some neutral accessories and of course don’t forget a little wrap for the evening chill (this one comes in a few different colours); even more importantly, don’t forget to stash a pair of flats in the car for late night dancing! … seriously, nothing kills the night faster than sore feet.
