Summer is finally on the horizon; after a few chilly weeks the sun has been shining and things are looking up! I love summer clothing and the sunshine that comes along with it, so now is the perfect time to start transitioning my wardrobe to cute, warm-weather outfits while still being able to deal with cooler temperatures. I picked up these perfect pieces from the Dixie Outlet Mall that will make the move from spring to summer clothing a lot easier.

I absolutely love dresses, especially on a warm day. The first hints of sunshine mean that it’s time to start wearing them more often. Unfortunately, sun dresses are a little out of the question at this point since it is still a bit cool, so I like to opt for maxis and knee-length versions, like this one that I picked up at Winners. They’re still cute but provide a little more coverage which makes them a lot more versatile. Throw a jean jacket on over top and you’ll be good in the evening when the sun goes down as well.

It’s not quite time to go full sandal every day, but I still love to wear an open-toed shoe. I’ve been loving this pair that I picked up at Famous Footwear (who, by the way, have a great reward program & regularly send out coupons – make sure you sign up!). They’re still sandal-esque but have a bit more coverage, making them great for wearing casually during the day or for a night out.

It’s still, sadly, not quite warm enough for shorts (though if the past few days are any indication, we should be there this weekend) but this doesn’t mean that you have to stick with regular blue jeans. A white pair (like these ones from Winners that I snagged for $25 – can you say steal?) really freshens things up, and keeping them rolled to a cropped length adds a bit more of a warm weather feel to them. Pair them with a cute tank with a bit of crop (this knitted style from Urban Planet is cute and inexpensive – they always have great sales and I was able to pick up a second in a different colour for only $1!) and a cute pair of sandals, like this pair from Boathouse that just so happened to come in millennial pink, and you’ve got the perfect outfit.

How do you like to transition your wardrobe from spring to summer?

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.

I have to start this post off by making an exiting announcement: I’m now an ambassador for Dixie Outlet Mall! I’m sure you’ve seen my posts about Dixie in the past; it’s an outlet mall located in Mississauga (and right around the corner from me, so I do a lot of damage to my wallet there) that has a ton of great stores with amazing prices, which means putting together an outfit on a budget is a snap. Over the next few months, I’ll be serving up fashion inspo and sharing all the amazing #DixieDeals that I snag.

Moving on, my first task as an ambassador was putting together a killer Valentine’s Day date night outfit. To me, the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit is sweet with a hint of sexy, and this is exactly what I wanted when I set out to do a little shopping.

I knew I wanted to find something pretty in pink, and was thrilled when I found this pretty, flowy top at the Forever 21 outlet for only $10.50! After scoring that amazing deal, I knew that finding the rest of my outfit would be a breeze.

I also wanted to find a pink bag to go along with the outfit and knew that Winners would be a great stop to check out next. Of course, this is one of my favourite stores and the Dixie location always has a great selection of new clothing and bags up for grabs. I fell in love with this pink purse from Steve Madden, which was a steal at only $40. It was the perfect match for my top, and while there I found a cute lacy bra and panty set ($20 for both) that also makes a perfect pick for Valentine’s Day.

To finish the outfit off, I decided to head to Urban Planet, where I found these over the knee boots ($45 with a sale) and cute black mini skirt ($15). They add a sexy touch to a feminine outfit and think they fit in perfectly with the look!

Lately, I’ve been trying to expand my jewelry collection with a few timeless, classic pieces that I’ll be able to wear in many different situations. Of course, a new watch seemed to be the perfect place to turn; it can add a little professionalism to an outfit, a touch of sophistication, or a bit of fun to a look.

I recently got the chance to pick a piece from Medium Watches, a new Canadian-based watch brand (that ships worldwide). The brand launched with two lines, the The Debut (their women’s style) and The Intro (for the guys – but of course, you can switch it up to match your style).

Both styles are available in a nice selection of shades, and can be customized with different straps, making it easy to find the perfect piece to fit into your collection. They also add a really nice touch with the option of engraving so you can add a personal message for yourself or someone special.

Of course, I’m a sucker for rose gold, and had to go with The Debut in black with a gorgeous rose gold mesh strap. It suits my style so perfectly, and I love that the rose gold adds a nice hint of femininity to this sophisticated looking piece. What style would you choose?
