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.

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?

Shopping for beauty products isn’t always easy – between all of the different options and brands, there’s always a bit of a challenge when it comes to finding that one perfect product (or completely updating your routine). Rexall has decided to make things a little bit easier with the relaunch of their beauty department; trust me, beauty lovers will be very happy with this!

Oodles of theBalm lippies!

The new Inspired Beauty department was designed to create the best beauty shopping experience possible from every aspect – with the new layout and clean black & white background, all of their brands are showcased in a way that makes finding the perfect products for your needs a snap! I had a chance to check it out (located in the Rexall at 901 Eglinton Ave W, Toronto), and loved how easy it was to see what was available. Everything is organized into easy to follow sections, with cosmetics, haircare, skincare, body, nails and tools (along with a new fragrance section) all covered! Of course, Rexall cosmeticians are always available to help out if you need a hand finding exactly what you need.

First of all, Rexall has introduced Milani and e.l.f., which is so exciting! I love both of these brands; they have great prices and products. They’ll be joining other amazing brands (and some of my faves!), like theBalm, Real Techniques, Cargo, KIT (a Rexall exclusive line) and NYX, which has also received an expanded space. Talk about beauty heaven, no?
