Spring Shopping List: Rain Boots

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 8 0



I have a few items on my Spring Shopping List, but at the very top of that list is definitely rain boots.  I was unprepared for the crazy snow we had this winter, and I have a strong feeling that Toronto is going to see a lot of rain over the next couple of months.  I’ve learned my lesson, and I’m already on the hunt for the perfect rain boots, umbrellas and rain coats.


I’ve been a big fan of all of the lovely ladies rain boots by Joules, but never knew that they carried clothing, coats and accessories until I was looking for rain boots on their website.  I’m in love with all of the pretty florals, stripes and bright colors in their collection right now.  Cute rain boots can add such a fun finishing touch to an outfit.  Below are two looks that I would wear from head-to-toe, with all pieces from Joules.  I think these navy floral print wellies are maybe the prettiest rain boots I’ve ever seen, and this fabulous striped sun hat is also in my shopping cart.




All items by Joules:  Dress, Necklace, Rain Boots, Hat, Handbag.



All items by Joules: Coat, Rain Boots, Top, Jeans, Scarf, Striped Bracelet, Yellow Bracelet, Blue Bracelet, Tote.




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.
