Ahhh. Spring is finally here. We’ve officially hit the first day of spring, and while it may not have felt like it, I’m still happy knowing that we’re hopefully going to be moving towards warmer weather soon. I like winter for about 5 days each year, so you can imagine why I’m so happy that we’ve hit it. This season brings so many good feelings and today I wanted to share with you 6 things I’m excited about for spring 2018. Let’s get to it!

  1. Pretty Spring Manis – One of my favourite things about spring is the reintroduction of colour, especially those that are pastel in nature. It’s finally time to put the black away and add a bit more lightness into our lives, which is why I tend to fall hard for spring nail polish collections. I’m really loving the Chic Shook collection from CND and the Blush Collection from Sally Hansen, both of which have plenty of soft tones and pretty, Easter-ready shades. My picks: CND Vinylux Long Wear Polish in Jellied and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Blush Against the World

2. Getting my Glow Back – At this point in time, my skin is super pale and feeling pretty dull and dried out. The past few weeks have been pretty harsh, with cold temps and nasty wind, and my skin is definitely reflecting this. Spring is all about feeling fresh and new, and I feel like one of the best ways to show that on your face is with a healthy glow. Add some bronzer or a beautiful highlight to your face and give it a quick revival. My picks: L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Nude Highlighter Palette, L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion (for a quick, all-over glow) and Elizabeth Arden Dare the Bare Bronzing Gel Pearls (for a natural-looking bronze boost)

3. Fresh Spring Scents – I feel like spring is really about different things reawakening, including our senses. I start to reach for fragrances that can best be described as delicate and refreshing, which I think really reflects what’s going on in nature. My pick: Clean Fresh Linens Eau de Parfum

4. Lighter Clothing – As much as I love being cosy and wrapped in blanket-like sweaters, I much rather prefer the light fabrics and flowy dresses of spring and summer. Since I’m going away in a few weeks, I’ve been looking out for pieces that will keep feeling comfortable, breathable and cool when the weather starts to warm up – and that includes what I’m wearing under my clothes. My pick: La Vie en Rose Lightly Lined Spacer Foam Bra (the perfect T-shirt bra!)

5. Easy, Breezy Skincare – Once again, spring is all about taking off the layers and bringing things back to life – including your skin. I love how skincare gets a bit more lightweight and is more about brightening and maintaining a healthy appearance. My pick: Olay Luminous Whip Face Moisturizer (BONUS: it has SPF 25 included, so you can make sure your skin is protected without even thinking about it)

6. Adding a Little Sparkle – Ok, yes, this is one that can happen anytime, but what better time to sparkle than when the sun is shining? Now that you’re casting off the sweaters and coats, it’s time to reemerge as the beautiful, sparkling goddesses that we are. And hey, who can ever say no to a little bling? My pick: Kiss Jewel Fantasy Nails (I’ve worn them and they’re freaking gorgeous)

What are you looking forward to for spring?

Winter really seems to be dragging on, doesn’t it? We’ve had a pretty cold, snowy season this year and it’s been a little harsh, especially after the past few years which have been a bit lighter on the winter side.

I’m “patiently” waiting for the warmer weather to hit, and in the meantime I’m trying to keep my wardrobe a bit on the lighter, fun side to help me make it through the last push of winter. I’m crushing on pink pieces and sweaters that are lighter but still cozy. Check out my picks for the sweaters from stores like Tobi that will at least help you feel a bit better about making it through the next little bit of cold weater.

I’m always for a pretty pink sweater, I love how this laced up shoulder sweater ($57 CAD) looks cute and cozy.

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?

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.
