Coveted | Spring and Summer

Hello beautiful.
Spring is upon us… actually in Canada one feels a little confused with the weather. But spring is here and it’s time to start playing with colours, prints and cuts.

You liked that intro didn't you? Dare I say it? I am a colour-virgin. I don’t usually wear bright coloured clothing. I reserve fun colours for my face.

Another tidbit is I usually wear semi-conservative clothes. When I was in my teens I was never allowed to wear bikinis, short-shorts, mini-skirts… God help me if I even contemplated wearing a micro-mini. Basically everything mini was band.

Do I regret this? Sometimes. I never got to wear a bikini when I had a flat stomach.

As I've gotten older dressing conservatively is my safe zone. I don’t mind it and it actually is my defined style.

I wanted to share with you my first inspirational board for this spring/summer:

Stripe Dress With Cut Out Back By Love
Emmy Demi Wedge By Tory Burch
Kelsey Middy Satchel By Tory Burch
Falling Leaf Stud Earrings By Astley Clarke
Moonlight Star Mosaic Bangle By Astley Clarke

Keep in mind it's an inspirational board... these items are a bit pricey.
I have always wanted to buy something for the Astley Clarke website but I am too nervous. What if the duty fees are super high!?

I realize this isn't that conservative but you get the picture.

Kiss and Hugs

      Wow… I had to repost this a couple times… Fail.

  2. This is a gorgeous dress! I'm a monochrome girl as well, I find it hard to mix colour in with my outfits!
