Spring is finally in the air, which means it’s just about time to put those winter coats and boots away and pull out the warm weather clothes. This is one of my favourite seasons for a few reasons; clothes get lighter, colour palettes change and we begin to inject more of a rainbow of shades into our closets, and everything feels fresh and new. I’m not a big fan of winter, so finding a new spring outfit has definitely been on my mind, and I set out to visit Bramalea City Centre to find something to get me excited for milder temps.

I had the vision of the perfect spring outfit in my mind when I made my way to the mall: a flirty dress, cute heels and a nice jacket to keep me warm (any Canadian knows that you can never really trust winter to be fully gone until at least the end of April). BCC has tons of great options for clothing, shoes and accessories and I knew that my shopping experience was going to be a fun one.

Jacket: RW&CO / Dress: Harlequin Collection / Bag: Aldo / Shoes: Call It Spring / Earrings/Necklace: H&M

Right off the bat, I fell hard for a trench coat from RW&CO. It was love at first sight and I knew it had to be mine. The heavier fabric meant it would help me to stay warm as the seasons change and the price tag couldn’t be beat – it was on sale for only $100 from the regular price of $170! They always have great deals and this was one of the best. I then stumbled onto the store Harlequin Collection and found the perfect match for my coat. They have lots of fun pieces with a bit of a boho vibe, and I found a gorgeous frilly, striped dress that’s going to be perfect for spring and summer. Sold!

Bag: Aldo / Rings: H&M

Now that I had the main pieces of my outfit down, it was time to accessorize, and I had a feeling that this wouldn’t be a difficult task at all. I decided to start off with a bag and knew that Aldo would be a great place to look. The store has lots of fun, colourful options right now and I decided to go with a pretty clutch with strap adorned with beautiful flowers and pastel shades that played off of the dress and trench. Shoes were next on my list, and I knew that I wanted to go with something neutral. Call It Spring was the perfect place to find these and I found a gorgeous nude pair with a block heel that looks great and feels comfortable. I finished off the look with a few pieces of jewelry that I found at H&M for a great price and a bright red lip (Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Always Red) to make it date night or girls’ night ready.

Shoes: Famous Footwear / Bag: Forever 21

Of course, I couldn’t help but notice all of the cute sneakers that all of the shoe stores seem to have on display right now and I decided to take my outfit one step further with a more accessible daytime version. I was so excited to find a gorgeous pair of white Nike sneaks with lace-like detailing at Famous Footwear that fit in so well with the dress that I picked up earlier. I also grabbed a fun mini-backpack at Forever 21 and a tube of Fenty Gloss Bomb from Sephora to complete my daytime look.

I am so over the moon with how my look came together – it’s the perfect outfit for springtime and can be worn in so many different situations. I also can’t believe how easy it was to find everything that I wanted and to put together what I had envisioned in my mind beforehand. I’m a super picky shopper and the selection of stores made it so easy for me to get exactly what I was looking for. My shopping experience was made even better thanks to the BCC FashioniCITY App, where you can upload your receipts after shopping to redeem for great rewards and find amazing deals.

Ahhh. Spring has finally sprung; the trees are blooming, the sunshine is returning and the warmer weather is on its way. It means that it’s time to enjoy long weekends & cottage trips. Today I’m sharing my long weekend style essentials and some of the cute #DixieDeals I picked up at the Dixie Outlet Mall. These pieces will definitely be in heavy rotation for me this season and into the summer.

Since things are still warming up a little, a cute jacket (pictured from Urban Planet, $30) is an absolute must. I love having a lightweight jacket that I can just throw on over anything to protect from the wind and rain when I’m out. It isn’t too heavy but adds that little layer of protection from the elements and inevitable mosquitos.

For cooler nights spent by a bonfire, you can’t go wrong with a cozy sweater (sweater pictured from Dynamite, $2 – yes, $2). Wrap yourself up in a soft one to keep yourself warm when things get a little chilly. And if you’re like me and plan on spending your spring & summer going on adventures – there’s never been a better time than Canada’s 150th to get out and explore – grab a pair of sneakers (sneakers pictured from Urban Planet, $12) to keep your feet protected and comfortable.

Printed shorts (shorts pictured from GUESS, on sale for $32) are always a great option. Whether you go with a pattern or print (like these flamingos I’m so enamored with), they add a little personality to any outfit and they go great with a sweater. Pair them with a cute, loose tank (top pictured from Winners, $17) and you’ve got a perfect sunny day outfit.

Of course, if you’re planning on a weekend getaway you’ll need a cute bag that can hold everything you need. A large weekender bag (bag pictured from Call It Spring, on sale for $40) doubles as a purse and is great for packing your clothes, toiletries and anything else you need for a road trip, beach day or cottage escape.

After the weather we’ve been having for the past couple of weeks in Toronto, I’m ready to call it a day and move down south. I may still have a few weeks to go until I can spend some time in the sunshine, but I decided to start getting ready early & give you a little warm weather inspo. I recently made a visit to Dixie Outlet Mall to pick up some Spring Break Essentials – let’s check them out!

Of course, when it comes to spring break, spending some quality time on the beach is always key. I love a good pair of jean shorts ($12 – for real – at Boathouse) for wearing to the beach; they’re comfortable and look cute over a bathing suit! A pair of cute shades is always a must-have as well. I managed to score an amazing deal on these heart-shaped sunnies (on sale for $6 at Aldo) that give me major Riverdale vibes.

Of course, a cute bathing suit is basically the uniform of spring break, and I fell in love with this one from Ardene (I picked up the matching set for only $9). It has this retro feel to it that I adore, and has a really great fit. Who knew you could pick up an amazing bathing suit at such a great price?

To finish off my casual daytime wear, I found these fantastic Montego Bay sandals from Payless ($15) that can be worn on the beach or out for drinks later on! The gold and white straps add a really nice feel to these.

When it comes to spring break essentials, I also like to pack a fun nighttime look that’s perfect for dinner along the beach or dancing all night with a margarita in hand. This romantic romper from Winners ($25, compared at $40) was the perfect choice for this; I can’t wait to wear it for drinks at my favourite spot in Costa Rica next month! And of course, the perfect outfit deserves the perfect shoes, so I decided to splurge a little with this gorgeous pair from Call It Spring ($60). They’re really light and the wedge makes them super comfortable, which makes wearing them for a few hours that much more bearable.

The holidays are pretty much here, which means it’s time to get glammed up for all of the celebrations and cocktail parties that are bound to be coming at you from every direction. I find that getting dressed up for the holidays can always be a bit of a challenge, as you’ve just about blown your budget from shopping for presents and don’t want to spend a lot on something new to wear.

Cue Dixie Outlet Mall, a fantastic shopping centre just outside of Toronto that brings together great looks at an even better price. With a fab selection of retailers ranging like Winners, Nine West, and GUESS to choose from, it’s easy to score some amazing deals to fit any style and budget!

Dixie Outlet Mall gave me a bit of a challenge this year – with a $100 gift card in my pocket, I had to put together a gorgeous head-to-toe holiday outfit that would be perfect for all of the parties I’m planning on going to this year. Normally, this might be a bit of a challenge, but I knew that the amazing deals at Dixie would make it easy – and I was right!

I fell hard for this stunning beaded romper (which came with a $50 price tag) and knew that I had to have it – it was so beautiful and definitely holiday appropriate!

Don’t you just love a good deal?

When the holidays roll around, it’s definitely time to up your style game while sticking to a tight budget – this time of the year can definitely get to be pretty expensive! This year, I decided to do a little shopping at Dixie Outlet Mall to find exactly what I need for the holidays – 3 outfits that will have me covered throughout the week and a half I’m out celebrating, meeting with friends and family & eating too much turkey – without breaking the bank (I spent just over $150 on everything here thanks to some great sales and finds).

Sweater: Urban Planet | Pants: Urban Planet | Heels: Call It Spring

Outfit 1: Everyone needs a fun “ugly” Christmas sweater! I found this one at Urban Planet and fell in love — the light’s on the Christmas tree actually light up, making this a must have for me! I paired it with some black leggings and these shimmering heels from Call It Spring, which ended up going perfectly with all of the outfits I put together – gotta love a versatile shoe!

Outfit 2: For my second outfit, I wanted to find a chic dress to wear to family get togethers & parties. I loved this LBD I found at Winners – the necklace detailing is so pretty and adds a nice dainty touch, while the thin sheer sections add a bit of edge to it!

Outfit 3: For my last outfit (yes, I know it’s similar to the last – I’ve got a thing for LBDs), I wanted a more playful dress; something that can be worn for night’s out with my gal pals & NYE. I found this dress at Winners as well, and loved the crocheted details. The sheer paneling & skirt length that’s a bit shorter than my previous dress made it perfect for an evening out.

What will you be wearing this holiday season?
