Pink and Gold

Happy Easter!

Inspired by Easter’s pretty colors (and the pink pants that I wore to run some last minute Easter errands this morning) I thought today would be the perfect day for something feminine and romantic with a hint of glitter! There aren’t many colors that go together as effortlessly as pink and gold. There are so many shades of pink to choose from but at the moment there’s one that seems to be popping up a lot: coral. It’s a gorgeous color that adds a brilliant pop to any outfit without being overly bright and it pairs beautifully with gold! So this weekend don’t be afraid to add coral and gold to your spring outfit! Besides, who can resist adding a little sparkle to an outfit, I know I certainly can’t!

Lacey Affair

It’s no secret that I love lace! I love it for so many reasons; it’s elegant, timeless and simply beautiful! It has the unique ability to take an ordinary outfit and make it into something extraordinary! There are many varieties of lace including Chantilly and Alençon, which are popular choices for brides because of their intricate swirls and floral patterns. There isn’t anything more feminine and delicate than lace which is one of the reasons why it’s always been a popular fashion choice. More recently lace has evolved to be used in any article of clothing imaginable, from shorts to shoes! Adding a gorgeous piece to an outfit will give it that added wow and I promise people won’t be able to resist complementing you on it!

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!
