The super sweet Amy (from Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins) and I partnered today to showcase one of Spring 2013’s hottest trends: bold stripes.  When I heard this was a “trend” for Spring, my first thought was that stripes are always in style, sort of like animal prints and denim.  Maybe I’m a little slow on the uptake, but I finally realized that “trendy” just means that designers and retailers have decided to focus on it this particular season and that it will be readily available in stores.  Zara has definitely committed to both bold stripes and black & white this Spring.  They have so much of it currently in store, including this great skirt I picked up a few weeks ago.  I thought it would be fun to pair this bold print with a matching top for a look that almost appears like a dress.

 

Coincidentally, Amy and I went for similar looks but she paired her fabulous striped shorts with a bright pop of one of my favourite colours, cobalt blue.  Please visit Amy’s blog, Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins, to check out more photos and details of her pretty look.

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  My weekend was ultra boring but absolutely perfect.  Sunday, we stayed in bed watching movies all morning and finally got around to watching Argo. . . wow, what a fabulous movie.  Even though I knew how it ended, it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.  My one complaint would be how it drastically minimized the important role that Canadians played in aiding in the safe return of the Americans, however, this truly was a fantastic movie.  Have you seen Argo?  Did you love it as much as I did?  How was your weekend?

Words can not express how much I am in love with this editorial from Vogue Australia’s March issue. Photographed by Will Davidson, the ultra-soft lighting and the bare dessert setting took my breath away. Gorgeous as always, Liu Wen is perfectly styled in beautiful pastel pieces, paired with perfect hair and make-up. The 1st photo with the mirror lights glistening on Liu, and the 2nd picture with the fabulous white floral dress both make my heart skip a beat. Which photo is your favourite?
