Outfit Inspriation + Friday Favourites

Apr 5, 2013

I'm ready to make this my new spring uniform. So cute! I can't wait to nab those yellow Madewell sandals. Does anyone know how their shoes fit? Fingers crossed, they run true to size. As for this weekend, it looks the rain gods have spoken because our sun has disappeared. I'm okay with that though... I'm really looking forward to taking it easy and soaking in some fabulous downtime! Really, what could be better?!... Happy weekend, everyone!
Things I'm loving:

This fabulous post on yoga from my blogging pal Gaby of This Little Port.

Love the boho vibe of these gorgeous earrings... so lovely for spring!

Oooh, scarf perfection. Would love to wear mine with skinnies & a loose cami.

Hoping to add this classic beauty to my jewelry collection. I am a diamond addict! Admitting it is the first step, right?!...

Excited to start hiking again this spring & summer. I'm hoping to check out Teapot Hill in Chilliwack!

Lovely to see that Stella & Dot will be donating 20% of the retail price of these pieces for Autism Awareness month!

I've been listening to my springtime playlist all week. Yup, I'm notorious for overplaying my favourite songs.

This floral blazer from Shop Ruche is crazy perfect for spring.... just add a striped tee & light wash skinnies!


  1. Love the madewell denim vest, their spring collection is on point this year!


    1. jacket is looking fabulous!! jacket will be looking so superb for this given dress.. complete and superb matching senses of dress..

  2. happiest weekend wishes V!!! even though the wet weather's returned i can always rely on you for a bright spot view into major goodness :) love the outfit insp here, especially those darling Madewell sandals - so cute! i've bought a few shoes from there and for me, they've always been true to size. what i've taken to doing now is that since i'm a 71/2, i size up to an 8 and usually that works really well. it leaves some extra wiggle room so my tootsies don't get cramped up and if they're too big then a little insole does wonders too.

    good lucks with your fun time purchase, can't wait to see how you style them! um, a tour of teapot hill...count me in!! sounds extra fab, thanks for the awesome tip plus the many rad links. lots to peruse through, yah. xo ♥

  3. Oooh, what a lovely selection, V! I'm practically swooning over that striped dress, and I can totally see you sporting it with all the pieces you've included in your selection... especially those yellow sandals! In my experience, Madewell shoes run a bit big. I had a pair of six size boots (which I should never have bought, really) that were at least a half, if not a full size too big... and I'm normally a 6.5! Happy Friday :)

  4. Love that striped dress!


  5. I always did Teapot Hill growing up!! Loved it :) My grandma lives in Cultus Lake so our family did it every summer...lots of little cousins! haha

  6. That black and white dress will find its way into my closet! Have a wonderful weekend!


  7. I love the dress and the sandals! I'm going to have to look into finding that dress as well.

  8. Teapot Hill looks so divine. It makes me want to get out hiking myself :) And by the way, I'm pretty sure I'm in love with your taste in music. I've been in a musical rut lately and the spring playlist was ear candy. How do you normally go about finding music? I totally suggest making the playlist a reoccurring feature on your blog! If you have any recommendations you'd like to pass on, I would totally love to hear them!!


    1. Hello, Lauren! Thanks so much for your sweet comment, as always. Yes, I'm so excited to check out Teapot Hill. And as for where I find my music... just through friends, iTunes and the internet, and yes def want to make the playlist a recurring feature on the blog! xo

  9. I love the dress and layered Bracelets! Hope you enjoy your relaxing weekend!! xx

    1. Aw, thanks honey! So nice to visit with you yesterday!! Can't wait to do it again next week. xo

  10. Love those sandals!



  11. I love striped dresses, but I always have to try them on first before buying to see how the stripes make me look! haha

    Prabal Gurung for Target Giveaway!

  12. Ooh! That denim vest is the best! I really want to get one for myself this summer, because I love my denim jacket, but it's way too warm for durring the summer heat!

    And I'm totes with you on the over playing songs thing! *winks*

  13. The best are no.1 up to no.6 ♥


  14. I LOVE bold black & white stripes for spring! I ordered my first pair of shoes from Madwell - their ballet flat skimmers - and found them to run a 1/2 too big, but with sandals that have straps to hold this on, it shouldn't be a problem!
    Cute cute cuteness!

  15. Lovely Spring outfit! Dresses + jean jackets = canadian lady-tuxedo. fact.

    also, diamonds are a girl's best friend.
