Exposè

 No, you are not imagining it - I have indeed pulled my ghostly bare legs out of hiding (aka a pair of opaque Joe Fresh tights) and have exposed them to the spring weather. Although it isn't warm enough to be this brave every day it is fun to run around town in a long flowing skirt and let the breeze hit you skin that has been hidden for many months. I found this skirt in the back of my mom's closet and know that it will be a staple for the next few seasons.

Blue Jean Baby

 The spring time weather is among us (not taking into account the freak snow/hail storm this afternoon) and I cannot wait to eliminate tights from my wardrobe come summer time! Since it isn't quite that warm yet I have begun bringing the warmth into my everyday styles in different ways. I found this dress at H&M and just loved the style so much that I bought it in 2 colours! I had spotted this necklace in the latest issue of LOULOU and just had to have it - I love the pastel colours and flower prints. I'm hoping infusing colour and florals into my everyday wears will convince the summer heat to come sooner!

TOMS 1 Day Without Shoes

 When I first heard about TOMS 1 Day Without Shoes from my friend Melissa I was instantly intrigued and knew that I had to participate! TOMS aim is to 'make you walk in someone else's bare feet' and realize what it is like to not have a pair of shoes at you disposal. I decided to show what my idea day without shoes would entail (since I work at a scrap metal company and it would be dangerous to walk around at work in bare feet). I absolutely adore strolling around outside in my bare feet when the weather warms up -  there is nothing better than feeling the cool grass in between you toes, but I honestly don't think I could spend more than an hour or two in my bare feet. I think I am going to purchase these lovelies so that TOMS will donate a pair of sturdy comfortable shoes to a child in need!

SportsGal

 Found some photos from Whistler that my mom took while we were procrastinating hitting the slopes! This is always my snowboarding ensemble, which usually doubles as my comfy weekend wear. It is practical in that all the pieces are very comfy, warm and easy to move around in - yet not sloppy so I still feel a little hip when heading to the lodge for lunch or to an apres-ski bar.

p.s who is getting their pedicure on for TOMS 1 day without shoes tomorrow?? I put on my OPI shatter polish especially for this occasion. For all the info check it out from Strategic Objectives PR and tune in tomorrow and I will be showcasing my day without shoes!
