Perfect for Weekend: Easy, Layered Spring Outfit
April 6, 2014
I've been slacking on posting outfits lately. I'd like to blame it entirely on the weather, but in reality I've just been an odd mix of busy and lazy - basically the worst combo ever for a blogger. I celebrated my 24th birthday on April 3rd and since then I've felt a renewed sense of determination to continue to push forward with my site - so I'm really happy to share today's spring outfit post with you.
I've never been much of a spring girl. I love me some summer heat, but I've always been more of a fall/autumn kinda person. I love layers, chunky scarves and all the deep hues that come with autumn. BUT, I've vowed to try to incorporate more colour into my life in 2014 - starting with spring. :)
A couple weeks ago, I hit up the Eaton Centre's Dynamite and H&M stores in search of some spring-appropriate pieces. I grabbed a denim jacket and floral dress from H&M, among several other things. I also recently received these beautiful and oh-so-comfy block heel shoeties from Sole Society. They're called Gilia and make any outfit immediately look perfectly polished!
Since it wasn't all that warm today, I layered my new H&M denim jacket on top of my black and floral dress. The dress is a really pretty cut. It's very "fit and flare", so it comes in very tight throughout the bust and waist but flares out at the hips to give a svelte silhouette. It's fabulous for a girl looking to up her curves or minimize a pear-shape body type.
I really wish I had more of a tan, because the shoes would pop SO much more. I suppose it's time to whip out my trusty St Tropez bronzing mousse! The "French Taupe" shade of leather is the perfect neutral. It's not too warm and not too cold, so it'll match a lot of different outfits.
Any who, this is what I wore when I was out and about today searching for condos around the city. I've started a second blog (gasp, I know!) called Condo Babe that's going to be all about small space design and (eventually) the process of designing my first properly owned home. There's not much there just yet, but please do check back.
I hope you're having a great weekend! I promise to be back with more outfits soon. For real this time. ;)
