The weather here in Toronto hasn’t quite reached Spring temps yet.  We’ve had a few beautiful, warm days but most have been on the chillier side.  I did get overly excited when I saw the first blooming tree this week, so I’m pretty hopeful.  But this floral Banana Republic dress certainly has me ready for Spring.


My parents are coming to visit me in Toronto this weekend, which means a few days full of family, food, and shopping . . . my ideal weekend.  I’m especially thankful that I get to spend Mother’s Day with my Mom, because that’s not always the case.  I’m also excited because tomorrow is the first Floral Market of the season in Toronto. This will be my first time going so you can bet I’ll be unable to control myself with all of the beautiful floral photos I’ll share on Instagram.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and a lovely Mother’s Day for all of you Mama’s out there.




Radiant Orchid, Pantone 2014 Color of the Year

Wednesday, January 15, 2014 40 0



As you are probably already aware, Pantone (the global authority on color), named Radiant Orchid the color of the year for 2014.  Described by Pantone as an “enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones”, Radiant Orchid is a “captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm”.  Charm me that indeed. As a self proclaimed girly-girl (and one who’s favorite color has been purple since childhood), Radiant Orchid is right up my alley.


Shown in many designer collections during the Spring 2014 Runway shows, Radiant Orchid will be everywhere in stores this Spring, and I can’t wait.  It’s already popped up in the form of accessories, and I’m sure a lot more clothing pieces will be available shortly.  Here are a few Radiant Orchid pieces that I have my eye on that are currently in stores.
