I think I have become a little bird print obsessed lately and if you have read some of my blog posts in the last little while you would have noticed this too! So when I saw this skirt online from Chicwish I knew I had to have it and the price was quite reasonable too making it impossible to resist! I had never purchased anything from them before so I didn't know what to expect but I was very happy with the skirt when it arrived. There are far too many online stores that are not very good and I try to do as much research as possible before I purchase anything just to be safe.
Statement necklaces are one thing that I can't have enough of. The bigger the better! I really love to show them off in the summer with bright colors but they can also look just equally as amazing in the winter too layered over a turtleneck. I think this one will put a smile on my face in every season this year!
Tell me what your obsessions are at the moment? I would love to hear all about it!
I wanted to show off this beautiful picture that Carly from Carly Watts Illustration drew of me from my last blog post. I was so impressed by this drawing as it is a perfect match to me and what I was wearing! She is so very talented and I was so honored that she drew me.

For a lot of people here in Canada it has been a super short work week as most people took an extra long 4 day weekend because of Canada Day on July 1st. It was nice to have some extra time off just to relax and catch up on some personal stuff but the weather was so crazy that doing anything outside was out of the question. The winds were really out of control and there was non-stop rain causing some flooding! Good thing I am not a camper as that would have ruined any chance of having a good time! So when the sun was shining today I was happy to get outside and take some photos!
I think fun printed capris are a must have for every lady this summer as they are fantastic to wear any day whether going out shopping or going to work. I don't think shorts are really acceptable to wear to a professional workplace but capris are perfect and so much more stylish! If you are going to be outside and the weather is super hot try sticking to lighter colored capris to stay cool as wearing black or darker colors will have you overheating! I know most people may go for just plain colored capris but why not try some printed ones. Summer is so short here in Winnipeg so I try to make the most of it by wearing more fun summer prints!

Being a petite person I always find it hard to find a dress that fits me perfectly. There is always something wrong with the fit and I either have to try to fix it myself or pay a professional to fix it. Even petite dresses don't work for me sometimes as they seem to make them too short in length and I am not always going for that look. Then I found eShakti, which is an amazing online clothing store and they offer the option of ordering their clothing in custom sizing. Who wouldn't want a dress or any piece of clothing that is made just to fit you?! There really is a dress for everyone there as they make clothing from sizes 0 - 36! When ordering my dress from eShakti besides entering in my body measurements for custom sizing I was even able to choose the sleeve style as well as the length of the dress which are things that are really important to me! I know most people don't fit perfectly into a dress off the rack so this is such a great option.
I decided on ordering this beautiful vintage inspired dress with little birds on a wire embroidered on it. When the dress arrived I couldn't wait to open the package! I was so excited to see how it turned out and when I tried the dress on I was so extremely happy. It really fit me the way I wanted it to! By adding my own personal touches with accessories my outfit was perfect!
Nothing beats a dress that was made just for me! I can't wait to order another dress from eShakti!

So swimwear season is upon us and I know most women are like me and just cringe when they need to get a new piece of swimwear. Trying on swimwear in a store is a little intimidating for me so when I had the opportunity to get a swimsuit from Swimco.com I jumped on it. Swimco is a fabulous Canadian swimwear company started in 1975 and just this year they launched their online store! I know we all love online shopping! You may think that it is hard enough to buy a swimsuit in person so how could anyone buy a swimsuit online well at Swimco.com they make it so easy. They have size charts along with fit tips and they even have a live chat button to ask any question. I actually did use the live chat feature to ask a question and I was greeted within seconds, not like some companies that make you wait forever to be greeted. The person chatting with me gave me my answer within a minute and I was completely satisfied. I decided on ordering a one piece bandeau swimsuit by Profile by Gottex in a bright cobalt blue. The shipping was super fast and in the package along with my swimsuit was a really cute re-usable bag. The swimsuit fit me perfectly as I went by the size chart and I liked how it has ruching at the bust and stomach to conceal any flaws I may have. I loved the swimsuit so much that I wanted to show it off. Since I am not going to wear just a swimsuit on my blog I decided to style it as part of my outfit like a really gorgeous bustier and as it was raining it was perfect to wear!
Who knew swimwear could be so glamorous?!

I mentioned in my last blog post that the midi skirt is one of my favorite clothing trends for spring 2014, so now I thought I would talk about my favorite spring accessory. As we all know no outfit is complete without the perfect accessories! My adorable bird clutch purse called Flight of Fancy (such a fitting name for such a sweet bag!) from Mary Frances is the perfect way to welcome in spring and summer! When the birds start singing outside and the sun is shining bright I know spring has arrived! This bag is so colorful and cute and compliments any outfit so beautifully!
I am loving so many of the new bags from the spring/summer Mary Frances collection, just check out this adorable My Garden bag or this Cherry Pie bag! You can check out the whole collection by clicking here and see what your favorites are!
The weather has been hot these past few days and it seems it went from freezing cold to crazy hot in just a week this year! To keep cool I try to wear clothing made of natural fabrics such as cotton or linen as they let my skin breathe so much better than something made of polyester. These types of fabrics do cost a little more but they are definitely worth the investment! I think a cute printed cotton blouse is perfect to wear all spring and summer long. It just so happens that the printed blouse that I am wearing is a perfect match for my tea cup hat!
Let me know what you are going to buy this spring and summer?
