I'm... in.... a...pencil....skirt!

Crazy I know! I'm a big fan of pencil skirts but I have to admit, I'm super self conscious in them! I think the last time I featured a pencil skirt was here. The dilemma I have is that I'm small on top but I have hips (that I will thank my mom's Latina genes). I love having curves but I don't really like showing them off in tight skirts. This skirt from Winners however changed my mind. Not only was the price aaaaamazing but of course the pattern attracted me.

Also, isn't this tee perfect for taking pictures in a park? This tee from Joe Fresh is actually part of their athletic collection but I love it paired with this skirt for a more casual look.

Happy Wednesday everyone! (How is April almost over?!)

I've always loved menswear inspired looks,  especially when styled with chic feminine twists.
The 424 Fifth line has such a great balance between classic feminine and masculine with a touch of modern. I absolutely fell in love with the bonded mesh tee and the oversized vest. Both pieces are easily transferable between seasons which is a huge plus in my books. As I've gotten older, I've really tried to steer in the direction of "quality over quantity".

The weather was so nice over the weekend that I felt completely comfortable wearing this outfit without a coat or anything which felt great! I did however choose to wear my heels on a very long walk and the result were some blisters which are never fun haha.

What do you guys think of menswear inspired looks & quality over quantity?

jacket: zara (older) // blouse: joe fresh // jeans: c/o joe fresh // booties: aldo // watch: michael kors 

The weather gods were good to me today by granting one day free of rain, snow and wind!
Although the weather is still sadly in the limbo of Winter-Spring I won't let it bring me down in terms of colour choices. I really don't give this Zara tweed jacket enough credit, it's so cute and definitely will be worn a lot more this Spring! This outfit is pretty Spring time appropriate but I may have been a tad ambitious when it came to the peep toe booties. They look cute but my toes were cold!

Seriously, we've had a horrible Winter and it's now the middle of April, I think it's about time we get some nice conditions! I know I've complained A LOT about the weather and I know I live in Canada and should be used to it but I don't think I ever will! This girl isn't meant to live somewhere so cold! haha
It's supposed to warm up this weekend so fingers crossed it does!

Have a wonderful long weekend and to all those that celebrate Easter, Happy Easter!
