OOTD Tassles and Palms

style

Palazzo pants in a smooth, flow material, black top. Sparkly flatforms and a fresh mani-pedi. I have been enjoying the tassel necklace I made after a trip to Portugal, inspired by the colourful jewellery I was seeing throughout our trip. It was the perfect rainbow of colour to accessorize for pride month … discreetly. And nothing makes me feel more entitled to a bit of pampering (hands and feet) than being targeted by a homophobic little twerp for being out at my job.

Happy Pride month. We’re here. We’re queer. We’re not going anywhere.

OOTD Pretty Little Florals

style

I don’t know which is more embarrassing, that I noticed Aria, on Pretty Little Liars, was wearing my dress, or that I was watching PLL and watched every season (if I’m being honest).

But today’s inspiration was an easy tie-waist dress, from Anthro, with pretty cutout details; paired with booties, a cute bag, and embellished cardigan, I was ready for the slight drop in temperature. The belly was definitely racking up style points with the above-the-bump bow.

OOTD Prom Style

style

Knocked up and on my way to prom. Twenty years later, lol. I’m lucky to have a few yearly excuses to get dressed up.

This Anthropologie dress was such a steal. Regularly $470, I scooped it up for $89 on sale a few seasons ago. I altered it and fortunately it still fits over this gradually expanding bump.

The shoes are from The Bay, purchased for my brother’s wedding last year; the wedge is oh-so-slight and I can walk in them for hours. Oh… and this is the same hair I tossed into a lazy bun at 7 am after not washing it for four days. Always classy.

Once, Twice…

style

I know a dress is a good one when I want to wear it twice in three days. I picked up this blue and white, kaftan style midi dress with tie-front for $40, and turned the corner of the rack to find my friend holding the same one.

Super versatile and easy to wear, it was a perfect choice over jeans, for a very windy day, paired with a black leather jacket and ankle cowboy boots. On the patio and into the evening, it was comfortable and breezy.

Two days later I wore it for a day date with my nieces to the movies, ice cream and for a walk on the windy beach, paired with a long denim jacket, Topshop peep toe slides and whimsical earrings.

Aldo sunglasses, Zara moto jacket, Gap denim trench, Frye cowboy boots, Topshop leather peep toe boot and H&M dress.

I love the flora of this print, which reminds me of wallpaper or the plates we had in my house when I was growing up. And the tie front means that while it fits now, it will also be a cinch to cinch it when I have a waistline again!

Is there an outfit you are wearing on repeat this spring?
