Easter Weekend


Happy Easter weekend everyone!!

Although I'm running a marathon on Saturday, my weekend will be full of eating this lovely cake and drinking tea from my Easter mugs. This guys name is Chester...the bunny. I name my mugs, is that weird? I have an issue, I understand.


We've had some whacked weather lately but I was so happy when I saw these pretty flowers blooming in my garden! I love flowers, if I could have my entire house and yard filled with them I would. Thanks to my mom, my yard pretty much is filled with flowers and its so beautiful in the summer.




I'll have more Easter photos for you on Sunday, along with an outfit post!

Tie Dye Maxi









Here is my look for today

With yet another weekend of Coachella coming up I decided to do another Coachella inspired outfit. The weather in Toronto has become severely cold/windy so I could not bare going outside without a jacket of some sort. I did notice along my news feed on Instagram that some people were complaining about the cool nights in the desert, so here is my nighttime Coachella outfit (minus the sunglasses). I received both of these pieces from Buffalo David Bitton and they have become some of my favourite pieces (especially the leather jacket). I love to mix different styles together, like classic/girly meets edgy. In this case I'm mixing hippie with edge and I love it!!

Gold Accents











Here is my look for today!

Even though it snowed yesterday I'm still charging forward with spring outfits! Thankfully by the time I got home from work the snow had almost disappeared but this is a typical outfit I would wear to work. This Gentle Fawn blouse is such a happy spring top and looks great paired with my trench coat with yellow detailing. These heels were a wee bit cold for the weather yesterday, but I can't get over how cool the straps are at the front! I'm seriously hoping mother nature gets her act together because I have so many dresses bursting out of my closet ready to see the light of day (and ready to be on my blog). See you tomorrow :)

New Running Gear

So its no surprise that I get a kick out of wearing nice work out clothes. That does sound slightly wrong, as I write this, because why am I spending so much on something that I'm essentially sweating in? BUT regardless, it motivates me.
Anyways, I've been on the hunt for a windbreaker/light rain jacket to run in. I went to Sport Chek and was pretty impressed with their selection but nothing jumped out at me until I hit the sale section (how convenient). I fell in love with this Adidas one because it was light and easy to run in and also completely matched my running shoes...not to mention the price of $34 was an easy sale.





Running Shoes : Nike
Pants : Lululemon 
Tank : Nike

Coachella Inspired













Here is my look for today!

I'm sure most of you know by the all the photos and posts that this weekend is Coachella. For anyone that doesn't know Coachella, it is a music festival in the middle of the desert about 2 hours from LA. Every celebrity and fashionista go and show off their best "festival" outfit. Considering I'm not there this weekend I thought I would show off my own Coachella outfit. I received this beautiful Gentle Fawn maxi dress and it truly is the best summer/festival outfit! The slits down each side and the bandeau piece around the chest makes it sexy but keeps it funky with the crazy coloured pattern! This will definitely be a great dress to grab and go this summer. Love it!

Dress : Gentle Fawn 
Coral Bracelet : Fredrick Prince 
Hat : Le Chateau 
Booties : Urban Planet
Gold Bangle : (Value Village)
Bag : (Value Village)

Stella & Dot Carry On Bags

I haven't travelled a lot in my life but when I went on my trip to Vegas I realized I didn't have a proper carry on. The day of my trip, as I'm rummaging through all my bags, I realized they were all too small, too big, awkward shape or had a super stiff fabric (not ideal for shoving under an airplane seat). I ended up using this freebie Victoria's Secret bag. It had short straps and was super uncomfortable to lug around. It fit everything nicely, but I'm on the hunt for one I can use not only as a carry on but also one to use while on my trip. 

Stella &Dot has a specific travel accessories section and I was introduced to their carry on bags when I went to a Stella &Dot Party. The carry on bags are measured out to be the regulated carry on size and they all expand at the bottom for more room. It's perfect if you have purchased some items on your trip and you're bringing them back on the plane with you. The straps are great to throw over your shoulder and its a nice shape to stuff a laptop and many other items.  

Here are some of my favourites:




I think the elephant bag is my favourite because I figured it's a great design for all year round (plus the elephants are so cute). The other ones are a wee bit summery, although they are all beautiful. I'm having a tough time deciding, which is your favourite!!?
