Pink Blossoms X Spring is Here

The annual cherry blossoms has begun to grace the streets of Vancouver to celebrate a major spring comeback. To kick off the gorgeous weather, I am wearing a coral quarter-sleeve to contrast the black. Along with this styling' black utility vest (a piece with high restyling EQ), I am going for a mix of girliness with a retro-inspired knee length pleated skirt. Black is not the most inspiring colour during the spring time, but the flowiness fabric is more than fitting!

I am also incredly sorry for the blogging hiatus. I do have a confession to make; I have self-diagnosed myself with SBD. Nope, not SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), but SBD (Seasonal Blogging Disorder). Winter really makes me want to curl up in a corner and wear layers of blankets to work everyday - especially a refridgerated work place with a constant temperature of 15. But all jokes aside, I've been performing lots of house-cleaning since upgrading my relationship status to "living together" and also finishing off a part-time night course (WOOHOO!). So I am back for good!

Enjoy your Easter Weekend!

Brighter Days

We've all seen brighter days. This was a gorgeous sunny day last weekend in Steveston - a preview of what would be spring in the next few weeks (or few months). Even though the weather may be staggering to catch up with the seasons, why not infuse some brightness into our outfits?

Here I am in a weekend outfit to grab some fish and chips with friends at Pajos! This is definitely a transitional winter-to-spring outfit,with a beige coat (super cute with the collar and wide sleeves!), rolled up jeans and BRIGHT mint-coloured wedges! I threw on an ethnically-inspired, patterned pashmina. Theres a lot of colour going on but if you look closely, there is some bright blue detailing in the embroidery. Plus, I am obsessed about the mix and match patterned looks and I frankly don't care if it looks unmatched. I just want to wear a heck of a lot COLOUR! YOU CAN'T STOP ME!

Now, I gotta mention that a guy friend of mine impressed me by pointing out that I rolled up my jeans to elongate my legs visually...Well done my friend. Who said guys dont pay attention to these things? I am thoroughly impressed!

Anyhow, let's just appreciate the gorgeous blue skies in these photos and daydream about our summertime in a cut-off shorts walking around Kits Beach. Ah the life.
Keep dreaming =)
