Spring Layers


I’m going to pretend that we didn’t wake up with a dusting of snow on the ground yesterday, ok? Those are April showers that I’d rather not think about! But back to spring, this is a great everyday outfit for me. And for those of you that work in a semi-casual environment, this would work well for you too. This lightweight cardigan in particular is a wonderful layer for the spring/summer months. Very versatile and I can already tell I’ll be grabbing it regularly. Have you guys found any great pieces that you’re obsessed with lately?

Bold Shift


First off, thanks for all of your kind words and positive feedback on Wednesday’s kitchen reno post! It took a team and I certainly can’t take all the credit, but boy did I have fun! We’ll see how things pan out in the future, but I’d love to have more decor/reno’s to share with you :)

Today I’m sharing this fun, bold shift that’s oh-so perfect for Spring. It falls a bit on the short side, which is why I paired it with flats, but you could always size up if you are on the tall side or wanted a bit more length. You could also wear it as a tunic with leggings, but with the temperatures slowly rising, I decided it was time to let my legs breathe a bit!
