All Put Together

An outfit packed with punch!! 
I adore my leopard pants that I got about 2 years ago but ever since I got this bright yellow collarless blazer I think these two pieces were just a match made in heaven!  Since the pants on their own make quite the statement and only come out for special occasions, I feel like the pop of colour created a more wearable look because the vibrant yellow diffuses the leopard print impact.  I don't want to make my pants jealous or anything, but this killer blazer stole this outfits show!

Gotta Have it


So a few times while I have been out shopping I've caught sight of necklaces that appear to have been painted.  Since I'm loving my bright colours right now I can't help but love the idea of these fun accessories.  What I think is so great is the fact that some of the pieces I have come across that have been painted are tacky necklaces that I TOTALLY wore when I was in like elementary school!!!!  Who would have thought a little coat of paint would make them wearable and cool again?! I'll tell you one man who did; amazing jeweller Tom Binns! Check out some of his creations below and let me know if this is a hot summer accessory that you would rock this season!

After flipping through these necklaces you might be thinking to yourself that this seems like such an easy project to do.  Guess what? You're right and I'm thinking of trying one out for myself too!!  Check out these two blogs who show you how to do just that!

Who Made The Cover

Two major trends that we can see on magazine covers this month {as well as February and March} is the bedazzled bathing suit from Prada's S/S 2012 Collection and Louis Vuitton's eyelet pastel designs.  I fell in love with the sparkling bathing suit the moment I saw it on the runway but I have to admit I am growing tired of it being overused on covers.  The gasp of appeal has been lost and it's unfortunate since there is so much more incredible designer creations that could be showcased!  As for Louis Vuitton's dainty and feminine eyelet cut patterns.  Overused? Yes.  Am I over it? No!  The S/S Collection was filled with several different pieces that each seem to be taking their turn on the covers leaving us captivated by the romance of Louis Vuitton each time!

All Put Together

I love these little sequined short shorts!!  I took this look from dinner to a night full of dancing just by simply removing the blazer.  I had a lot of fun with shorts worn with nylons over the past winter season {oddly enough since I can't stand being the least bit cold}.  It was a nice change to go from sequined dresses last year to {sequined} shorts this year.  Sequin can be over powering so these little dazzlers were the perfect dose to get a bit more creative with the overall look.

Change Room Diaries

Today's images were captured in the change rooms of Club Monaco

I was totally struck by this shimmery gold pleated skirt. It's so fun and flirty for whatever the occasion might be! I paired it with a navy knitted sweater but would love to see it paired with something coral to give the outfit more of a pop!

Sexy sexy leopard print alert! But it's not just the print, the length adds so much more appeal to it!  Obviously you can dress this skirt up more but I decided to keep it relaxed with this knitted sweater and let the skirt do the showing off!

A pleated maxi skirt is an essential to to have in your spring and summer wardrobe this year.  There are so many options to choose from when it comes to these skirts between colour, style, fabric etc. So find the right one that works for you and rock it!!  This one was a heavier silk with two slits on each side and this being in a cream colour you have an endless amount of colours you could pair this up {or down} with.

It's that time again to get a little nautical!  I love this anchor sweater!  It would be my perfect go to item for my cottage get-away days!  Although this sweater would look hot with the obvious pairing of jeans, I decided to take it a step further in the flirty direction and tried it on with a navy silk pleated mini with a delicate lace trim.  Now how cute is that for dressing this look up?!

For any vest lovers out there, this one is awesome!  The mustard colour looks great with the dark khaki gold sequin.  The pleats make it flow nicely for the warm season yet the colour could take this piece into fall.  How do you wear your vests?

Gotta Have it


For my birthday I got to pick out one of my gifts so I decided to go to Holt Renfrew.  Among the endless amounts of dream worthy items I couldn't help but get drawn into these little leopard print flats.  Yep, I can't yet kick my love for animal print.  And nor should I have to because I could see myself putting a lot of mileage on these puppies over spring and summer.  And if you want to go a step of fun further you can get these in purple since colour is something we don't need to shy away from anytime soon!
