As we start off the new month I wanted to share my favorites from last month. I think you will really like the picks this month. Let’s get to it:
This dress is a under $40 piece that is so great for spring! Since we’ve had unseasonably warm weather for March I’ve been able to wear it 3 times already (with a denim jacket, but still!)
2) The Perfect Jeans:
These high-waist stretchy jeans are hands-down my new favorite denim! You can’t go wrong with under $100 jeans that are actually comfortable while still looking good!
3. Spring Leopard Print:
One trend I really loved this past month is soft leopard print. I always think of leopard as a more bold fall/winter trend, but this year we are seeing a lot of pastel leopard or blush leopard that is perfect for a spring outfit. Some of current favorites are:
This night cream is amazing you guys! My skin has been really red & dull (thanks winter), but I got this cream in March and have used it once a week so far and the results are incredible. My skin is so much brighter and healthier looking when I wake up after using this!
I liked it so much that I’m actually giving one away as part of my monthly giveaway on my instagram! Check out this post to enter to win!
1) Quick Trip Home to Ontario:
Heading home to Ontario to see my family and best friend Maddie’s baby Presley was great. Nothing beats cuddles with an adorable newborn!
2) Cross-Border Shopping with Britta:
My friend Britta and I took a Saturday and headed over the border for some shopping in Bellingham. Once a season at least I try to head down for a Trader Joe’s / Target shop and Britta and I had such a blast this time!
3) Michelle Obama’s “Becoming” Tour:
My friend RJ and I went to see the Michelle Obama tour stop here in Vancouver and it was an incredible night. I’m so inspired by the work Michelle Obama has done and the way she has carried herself in the public eye. I’m about halfway done “Becoming” right now, and I definitely recommend reading it!
4. Blogger Events:
This was a busy month for blogger events, which was great! Vancouver doesn’t usually have many events so it was a nice to change to have a bunch of great brand events this month. Two of my favorites were the brunch with Kia Motors at an airport hanger, and the Poshmark Canada launch party!
Season 3 of The Santa Clarita Diet:
Since I’ve been so sick this month, I’ve watched a lot of TV. Season 3 of the Santa Clarita Diet just came out and it is such a funny, creative show. Check it out if you haven’t seen it yet!
Yep, I am one of those people who is still watching Grey’s Anatomy! I can’t be the only one?!
This month I caught up on the new season, and oh my gosh the most recent episode was incredible. Honestly I think it should have come with a trigger warning for sexual assault, but other than that, I was so impressed by how they handled such a difficult topic. I think part of why I like Grey’s Anatomy in general is Shondra Rhimes’ ability to address current socio-political issues.
Favorite Blog Posts I Shared:
My favorite post from March has to be the baby blue suit, only because of how much you guys all loved it. This was my highest viewed and most shared post of the month!
I really enjoyed sharing more about me, and I love this outfit so this post definitely makes my favorites of the month.
Written for International Women’s Day, this post felt very personal and very important to me. While it’s titled dear female lawyers, I think the heart of it applies to women in any field. If you haven’t read it yet, I would love to hear your thoughts.
1. Marrakesh Travel Guide – by Mollie Moore
As the title implies, this is a travel guide for Marrakesh. I just loved Mollie’s Marrakesh photos and am definitely wanting to plan a trip there asap!
2. 5 Clothing Stores to Visit in Seattle – by Annabelle Kristine
This is making me want another cross-border trip! I haven’t actually spent much time in Seattle, and considering I’ve lived here in Vancouver for 4 years that’s just crazy. This spring/summer I want to do a Seattle weekend getaway.
3. Peach Mint Smash Cocktail – by My Style Vita
This drink looks amazing!! I have been pinning spring/summer cocktails like crazy this month – I can’t wait for backyard BBQs this summer! This peach mint smash though is definitely my top pick to try.
