I’ve been trying to make the most of sunshiny days by wearing happy Summer pieces when I can.   White, florals, dresses, skirts!  Unfortunately with these days few and far between I feel like I’ve been in a rut.   It’s hard to feel inspired to get dressed in the morning with nothing but grey clouds in the forecast.

Tomorrow’s challenge…snap out of it!  Time to stop whining about this typical Vancouver weather and get on with my love affair with Spring clothes.

I’m sure you’ve all noticed that is has been Spring for a few weeks now, but the weather is just not cooperating.  Even though there is still a chill in the air, this does not make down filled winter parkas acceptable for this time of year.  I have been amazed at the amount of women I see in the morning on their way to work wearing a pretty Spring outfit with a giant parka over top.  Ladies….it don’t look good.   When fashion crimes such as these are committed, I have to speak out.

There are plenty of ways to look chic and season appropriate and still be warm and cozy.  For outerwear try a trench.  Weather short or long this fashion staple is always in style and will keep you warm and dry.  This is a heads up for the lady I saw earlier this week in the bulkiest white coat I’ve ever seen.  And no, it didn’t work with your pink floral dress and strappy shoes.  Get a grip!

Not ready to bare your legs?  I love ankle length straight legged pants and jeans.  Warm and chic and look great with ballet flats.  Very Audrey Hepburn.  You can also start thinking sunless tanner.  This way when your legs are out for all to see, your legs will have the head start.  I personally love Jergens!  No orange or streaky color.

Scarves are a great addition to any outfit.  Just no woolly scarves….think silk scarves in pretty prints.

Cardigans are a girl’s best friend.  I’ve been wearing on almost everyday.  Layer them with cute printed tops underneath (try a pretty floral).  I feel put together and very Springy without freezing.

Your cardi can be cropped or extra long.  It’s cute way to add a layer on the chilly days.

 Throw one over a dress, tank, or anything else you like!

So ladies, it’s time to ditch your heavy black boots, down filled parkas, and anything that has fur trim on it.  Embrace the new season.  It’s a great excuse to go shopping;-)

It is finally Spring!  Sure the weather hasn’t quite caught up yet, but I’m there.  I’ve always been a Fall girl, but this year I find myself obsessed with Spring fashion.  I’m excited about all the colour, fresh whites,  floral prints, saddle bags, midi and maxi length skirts, canvas shoes, nautical stripes….and the list goes on and on and on.  There seems to be a flirty ease to the season.

Fidelity Denim has come out with a fabulous look book for their Spring/Summer season.  Not only does it show off what’s new in Fidelity jeans, it shows what’s on trend for the season.  Love this look (from their Fall look book) of florals with ankle skinny’s, pop of colour in the tights, and a high sexy python shoe.  I even love the bun (this is a fave look of mine on hot summer days).

People Style Watch Magazine (one of my faves for right now fashion), had this pic of Olivia Palermo in a Topshop long floral maxi skirt.  I love the casual vibe she gave the look by adding an edgy jacket.  It’s beautiful and Springy, but totally wearable right now with tights to keep us warm.

Another great Fidelity look from their Spring look book!  Flared jeans are back in a big way.  Adding stripes, platforms, and topping it off with this awesome hat (yes, I’m a hat girl) gives a laid back but polished look.



What looks are you going to be rockin this Spring?  Is your style pretty floral dresses
