A Sugar Coated Spring

I don’t know about you, but I am SO READY to retire my winter layers and get into the swing of spring! My faithful faux fur coat is starting to feel like a villain in a bad movie…just when you think you’ve seen the last of him, he comes back out. To celebrate the four day weekend over Easter, I put together this Spring-inspired outfit from some of the 80 stores at Buchanan Galleries, and spent a fun afternoon with Gary walking around our old neighbourhood.

Outfit Details:
Sugar Coated tee | H&M
Gingham skirt | Mango
Silver camera bag | Accessorize
Hair flower | Claire’s
Puma sneakers | Kids Footlocker (yep, really!)
Fuchsia Fever lipstick | Benefit Cosmetics at Boots

All available at Buchanan Galleries 

Hair by #BLOW | Nails by Swoon Nails 

We visited the Botanic Gardens, where it feels like a spring day all year round! I’d visited #BLOW earlier that morning for a quick hair appointment, and they gave me the 1960s fantasy bouffant of my dreams. It just goes to show that you can get the Priscilla Presley-meets-Betty Rubble hair you’ve always wanted (you just need the right salon!).

My favourite part of this outfit has to be the mint Sugar Coated tee from H&M. I’ve been falling in love with slogan tees all over again lately, and that pastel green shade has ‘Spring’ written all over it!

Also, can we just take five and talk about these creeper-style Puma sneakers? Yes, they are technically definitely from a children’s shoe store, but hey – if the shoe fits (boom boom!), who am I to complain? I walked around in them all day, from the Botanic Gardens, to lunch at West on the Corner, and back into the city centre again. Cute AND comfy!

I hope you guys have been starting to enjoy the sunnier days and got a chance to take it easy over Easter. Thank you for your patience and support with my blog rebrand also – I really appreciate it and can’t wait to reveal more!

Tell me, have you started wearing your favourite Spring pieces yet? And which cartoon character’s hair do YOU most admire?

Here’s to a sugar coated spring…
