Look Book: Bold Colours & Waiting For Cherry Blossoms!!

Thursday, April 5, 2012

The cherry blossoms have started to bloom in our neighbourhood (yippee!) and I can't wait to take some photos. Really, is there anything prettier than trees exploding in pink?! It's one of my favourite things about the spring season and I love being able to document it. Unfortunately, when we took these photos, it started to drizzle, so off we went to our favourite covered location and took a couple quick snaps before meeting up with our friends for a fabulous dinner party. Yay food! Oh my goodness, it was a feast!! 
This week (exciting!) I had the chance to wrap & ship a few "Oh, Poppy!" orders. I just bought the cutest packaging for it: little craft paper envelopes, red glitter heart seals, and chocolate brown & light blue polka dot ribbon. Fun! On another note, are you guys super excited for Easter long weekend?! Martin & I are off for four days. We'll be attending Easter service on Sunday, spending lots of time outdoors with our doggy, and then buckling down to finish our taxes on Monday.
As for the outfit?! This dress has become a fast favorite in my closet, along with the colour green. Lately, I'm really drawn to bold colours - love 'em! For spring, I'm looking to experiment with some new colour pairings such as: aqua/orange, lime green/pale pink or even something slightly more classic like navy paired with a pop of yellow. What are you guys loving right now?! xo veronika

  25. I've been on a shopping diet of sorts since December - I'm only allowed to buy things from my meticulously curated wishlist. One of those things is an emerald green skirt or dress, which for the life of me I have not been able to find... That is, until I saw this post! This dress is just perfect, Veronika, starting with the colour and moving on to, well, everything else about it. And how fun to see one of your designs featured! Happy Easter!
