Spring might juuust be my favourite season. The weather is getting warmer, the flowers are starting to come back, the birds are singing — things are literally abuzz once again! And with that comes Spring fashion. Which, granted, has been a little different for us …

Well, the flowers aren’t quite up yet but I have heard some birds singing lately so I’m taking that as a sign – Spring is on her way, people!! I promise you it’ll get here eventually! Hopefully we’ve left the worst of Winter behind us, so in my mind it’s full steam ahead. And on that note, as you begin transitioning your wardrobe to lighter and brighter pieces, I wanted to highlight a few trends I’ve seen floating around Instagram’s fashion sphere in the off chance your wardrobe needs a little Spring refresher. Shop any of the looks below by clicking on the picture!
#1. Eye-spy tie dye. Yep, you read that right, the über groovy rainbow pattern is back! Now, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably looking to keep this one on the more subtle side. If you don’t want to bust out your moon boots quite yet, opt for something that only has one dominant colour in it.
2. Statement sleeves. Sleeves are bigger than ever this Spring! I find it the perfect time to wear them too, because something about Spring just makes me want to dress a little girlier, a little more romantic. Take your outfit from 0 – 100 with a dramatic sleeve real fast!
3. Cardigan craze. Forget wearing a cami under your cardigan, you don’t need it this Spring! Button it all up, or leave a few selectively undone – the choice is yours for this ultra cool girl look.
4. Pretty in pastels. This one tends to come back into rotation every Spring, but I’ve especially noticed this year how many brands are rolling out clothes in soft hues of lavender, baby blue and pastel yellow. A guaranteed mood booster!
5. Vintage vibes. Think covered buttons, satin fabrics and Victorian-esque shapes, this Spring is going to be full of vintage inspired blouses. An ode to the ultra Tumblr girl, these blouses are all about that dreamy mood. Now all we need are the flowers!
Just a little post rounding up some of my favourite things for Valentine’s Day! I know some people either love or hate this day because they think it’s overrated and overpriced. Ultimately, I really like the day of love. February 14th is in the dead of Winter, people are getting antsy for Spring and quite frankly, I like having a little day to celebrate and get excited about.
For me, Valentine’s Day is about love in general, so why not start with yourself? Sure, it can also be about loving on someone else, like a significant other, or a friend if you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day — but I like looking at it as a reminder to give a little self love!
Last year, I did a post telling you to buy lingerie for Valentine’s Day (for yourself) — and this still rings true for me. If there was ever a day to pamper yourself, wouldn’t it be Valentine’s Day?
So treat yourself to some new cute PJs, or splurge on that face mask you’ve been eyeing. While everyone else is out spending money at dinner, opt to take a long soak in a bubble bath or set aside time to dive into that book you’ve been meaning to read. Trust me, leaning into the little things you love can really go a long way in radiating that love outwards!

Accessories are one of those things that can totally make or break an outfit. They can take an otherwise basic outfit and elevate it to the next level. And this Spring, I’ve been allllll about those accessories. From seashells to pearls, this Spring more is …
Hi guys, long time no see! Sorry for the inactivity on the blog lately — things here have been crazy busy from trying to plan a wedding to me changing shows for work. The blog unfortunately had to take a back seat for a little bit but I finally feel like I’ve got my feet under me and I’m hitting the ground running.
So let’s talk spring style! The weather is finally taking a turn for the better here and it’s put me in the BEST mood these days. Crazy how a bit of warmth and sunshine can really motivate you!
Now, I don’t think you can talk about spring style and not mention white jeans. They are a spring staple for sure. Something about them just works in the springtime. And honestly, I’ve gone through my fair share of duds. The last thing you want is an ill-fitting pair of white jeans. Since they are so bright they really draw your eye’s attention to them, you want them to be as flattering as can be. And non see-through. My first pair were a super thin material and let me tell you – it’s not a good look. When done right, I find white jeans super chic. When done wrong — kinda cheap looking.
Pictured above I’m wearing Levi’s. I was confident in buying them because Levi’s are a tried and true brand known for their thick denim. And that works to my advantage in two ways: 1) it holds everything in and won’t sag and 2) they weren’t gonna be see-through. Do you ever find super thin jeans are quick to sag? I find they stretch out way easier and make my look bigger than I am. So I stuck to a brand I knew was gonna deliver.
Now, I’m not a super flashy person when it comes to fashion. So just having a pair of white jeans meant I was a little outside my comfort zone. I decided to dip my toes in the white jean pool in the most subtle way I could – and that was by sticking to a neutral colour palette. By sticking to neutrals, I let the jeans take the spotlight and didn’t pair them with anything that could compete. And honestly, I LOVED the outcome! For me, it stuck the perfect balance. Classic and yet fashion forward. Do you own a pair of white jeans? Would you try tonal dressing? Let me know, would love to hear from you!
