Monochromatic dressing (that is, one colour from head to toe) is a huge trend for Spring 2013.  I am particularly fond of this trend because it’s really easy to pull a look together, and I always feel a little extra stylish when wearing one single colour (see my past cobalt blue outfit here).  I’m thrilled to be partnering with 3 fabulous ladies to show you how each of us has taken the runway trend and worn it in real life.

 

Amy from Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins is lovely in white, Sara from Glitter and Grace is chic in black, and Star from Beauty and Bows is pretty in pink.  I felt fresh and ready for Spring in my full-on mint look.  Will you be sporting the monochromatic trend this season?

Spring 2013 Trends - Ruffles

Dress: BCBG (similar by MSGM, and loving this one shoulder version too!). Handbag: Coach. Shoes: Nine West (U.S. link) (Canadian link). Watch: Michael Kors. Rings: Coach. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

When I was uploading these photos, I realized that I’ve been wearing a lot of pink and yellow over the last couple of weeks (as seen here and here).  Probably because this colour combination screams “Spring”, and I’m so ready for Winter to be over.  I’m loving any shade of pink with yellow right now, including pastel pink and the dress that I’m wearing in these photos which has more of a coral hue.

 

These photos were taken last week in Old Town Scottsdale, Arizona.  It was so nice to bust out the summer wardrobe, and it really put me in warm weather mode.  I’ve decided that I’m officially done with wearing pantyhose or tights until next Fall.  I might regret that decision tomorrow when our temps will be near the freezing mark, but I’ll stay strong.

 

Despite the cold weather, I’m really looking forward to this weekend.  My parents and brother are coming to Toronto for a visit, which means a great few days full of family, fun and food.  Do you have any big weekend plans?  I hope you all have a great one!

Ahh, these photos bring up major vacation withdrawal.  Justin and I had such a fantastic time in Scottsdale, Arizona last week.  I was there for a marketing course for work, while Justin joined me to soak up some desert sun.  Our little saying all week was that I was “the fool in school, while he was cool by the pool”.  I did get my fair share of pool side lounging in though, and I was definitely able to enjoy the 90 degree weather.  Oh Arizona, I sure do miss you.
