sunnies: c/o Camilla d’Errico for Clearly Contacts,  tee: thrifted from Value Village

I have been making efforts this year to make my closet more eco-friendly.  So what have I been doing?

  • Consuming/shopping less. I have been utilizing the pieces in my wardrobe more and having fun with styling things in new ways.
  • Purchasing locally made and/or sustainable fabric choices when possible.
  • Thrifting! I have actually been enjoying the odd trip into a thrift shop so see what little gems I may find.

This fun little California tee was a great find.  I was first drawn to the colours and the graphic.  I kinda have this thing for cute t-shirts. (*wink) I have been living in these light wash jeans I picked up in the Fall at Old Navy.  They are a multi times a week item right now. They look perfectly Springy with the tee and this light pink blazer I bought a couple years ago tied the look together.  As always, a cute pair of shoes (or ankle boots in this case) and some fab accessories complete the outfit.  I am completely in LOVE with these new Camilla d’Errico for Clearly Contacts sunnies.  I am pretty sure they make me look a lot cooler than I really am.

So? What have y’all been wearing these days?  Any thrift finds?

Spring Vibes 2016

We are a couple of weeks into Spring, and it is feeling so good!  I adore my Winter duds, but shedding some layers and putting away the Winter coats feels ah-mazing.  My closet edit continues.  I have an appointment at a consignment shop on Monday to take in some of my previously loved items to sell.  I still have more to sort through, but it’s happening.  I have been selective in what has been coming in and realistic about what I actually wear on a daily basis.  This little mood board sums up nicely the type of look I have been rocking lately.  It’s been distressed denim, easy tees, lightweight cardis, soft scarves, ankle boots, sunnies, and a few other well appointed accessories.  My mood board consists of things I already own (or are very similar to something I have) as well as pieces I am hoping to acquire.  I am on the search for a great little stripe dress like this one.  I’d like to wear it now over skinny jeans but want it along enough that I can wear it later with bare legs.  I also think a black and white floral bomber jacket would be super cute with jeans and all my West + Wind tees.

What are you all shopping for for Spring?

 

glasses c/o Firmoo

Cue the spring shiny weather!  We have had so much rain and grey weather here on the West Coast, so this glorious sunshine has got us all outside to soak up that vitamin D.  Transitioning into Spring usually means infusing a bit of colour into the wardrobe.  I still love the ease of my neutrals, so a subtle unexpected pop of colour can be a good way for me to get Spring-y.  These cute new specs from Firmoo are the perfect shade of lavender.

For those of you who follow me on Snapchat, you will have seen this week was one of disheveled mommy moments along with some sartorial wins.  That’s how most of my weeks roll. Before becoming a mom, I swore I would never be one of those moms who looked tired and like she just threw on whatever was quick and easy.  Well, I now realize that those days just gotta happen sometimes.  I have mastered the 10 minute get ready and go (for myself…child not included)  and some days a shower is a luxury not a necessity.  (Sidenote….I always giggle when I see 5 minute make up challenges.  Five minutes?  Why so long?  Haha!  I’m a two minute and 30 second girl.) No, I haven’t given up.  I still love to get dolled up, but day to day doesn’t have to be so hard.

Would you like a FREE pair of Firmoo specs of your own?  The first 10 readers to leave a comment on this post will be sent a shopping code for you to redeem a free pair of glasses courtesy of Firmoo.  Details: You must be a first time Firmoo customer.  Shipping and handling fee are extra.   There will be a select number of glasses to choose from.  The shopping code will be sent to you via email by me and it will expire on April 18th/2016.
Good luck!

Oh the awkward time of year where we attempt to transition our wardrobe from winter to spring.  We inevitably are either way too hot or freezing.  It’s a tough sartorial balancing act.  One of my musts for my spring wardrobe is a denim jacket.  {Or in my case two denim jackets.  One more spendy & fitted to go with dresses, tanks, etc. and the other cheap and cheerful plus a bit roomier to layer over slightly bulkier items.}

I picked up this super cute polka dot dress with my June trip to San Fransisco in mind.  However, my motto is “buy it now, where it later…but also where it now” .  I’m still working on a catchier way of saying this.  I get too impatient to wait for the warm weather to kick in to wear my new, carefully selected, finds.  Yesterday was a warm sunny day that was screaming for me to throw this dress on.   {Dress details that I love…the elastic waist makes it perfect for my curvy figure…the adjustable straps allow for a proper fit in the bust area…for the hot weather I’ll pair it with a blue lacey bra, sandals, and my straw hat.}
