The Spring Skinny

I love spring! It brings a renewed sense of freshness that’s much needed after a long, cold winter. I wish I could say that with spring comes lots of sun and beautiful weather but sadly, here in the Pacific Northwest it seems to bring more rain. The saying “April showers bring May flowers” holds true here in Vancouver. Nevertheless, I look forward to infusing my wardrobe with some pretty colors and welcoming spring with lighter layers. You can easily add a pop of color to an outfit with a bright necklace or lipstick but the leading trend this spring is colored denim. Everything from pale pastels to saturated brights are a fun way of brightening an outfit. Paired with some adorable flats they make for the perfect transition from winter to spring!

International Women’s Day

Welcome to Pearls and Lace! In the
spirit of celebrating and inspiring
women, I thought today would be a wonderful day to start something new in my life. Although I’ve been thinking about creating a blog for a while, the motivational words from this years International Women’s Day inspired me to put my dreams into action.

With spring just around the corner I find myself bursting with creativity; it seems as though everywhere I look I find inspiration for my home, fashion and life. I love drawing inspiration from the different seasons and spring’s sense of rejuvenation is one of my favorite. I look forward to sharing all the things that I love with others!
