Just when I thought I could finally pack up my winter coats and pull out my spring jackets, Mother Nature turned on me . . . again. Although, I really can’t complain considering my Canadian family and friends have been slammed with a horrendous never-ending winter this year. I feel for you guys 😉

The weather yesterday did, however, give me an excuse to wear these gorgeous colorblock boots from Ross. The crystal collar and boots give this business look the perfect amount of dazzle for the work week. It adds style without being over-the-top for the office. You may want to add tights depending on your weather. I probably should have, considering it started to snow just as I finished taking photos (as you can probably tell in my last pic). Hopefully, that photo will be my very last with snow for a while!

Casual Cool

Starting off the week with a casual cool look that is both stylish and practical. The weather has been all over the place lately, but this outfit felt perfect during the day and once it cooled down, the cardigan added just the right amount of warmth.

The Fossil bag shown in this look has been one of my favorites for years, but I have to say I am loving their new Sydney Satchel, it’s gorgeous! I find that Fossil has such great quality leather handbags without over-the-top prices. Can’t wait to see the upcoming collections!

Bright Beauty

When the weather is gloomy, it’s hard to feel motivated throughout the week. That’s where the power of brights comes in! I find that throwing on a bright blouse, jacket, or accessory, can completely turn your day around. Hot pink and orange automatically make me think of Spring and Summer, and let’s face it, we all love those few months out of the year. Sunshine, patios, picnics, barbecues, and pool time — need I say more? Fortunately, Spring is just around the corner, but until then I’ll have to settle for bright layers!

(Fur)ocious

Feeling (fur)ocious in my faux fur scarf, sheer blouse, and jewel toned accessories for today’s look. This is such a great outfit for the weekend, and the faux fur scarf is so warm and cozy! The jewel toned handbag and boots add a rich pop of color without being over the top, and compliment the tortoise jewelry perfectly. If you are not a fan of adding multiple colors to your look, start with adding one bold hue and go from there!

I apologize for the silence the past couple of days, there just aren’t enough hours in the day sometimes! Decided to pull out this oldie, but goodie last week for work, and I’m so glad I did. I purchased this dress a few years ago from Forever 21, and I forgot how much I love it. Watercolor and ruffles never get old! This dress is classy enough for a special event, but also appropriate for a Monday meeting. I always keep my eye out in Forever 21 for similar styles that I can use for work and play.
