Outfit dissection: Spring coat layering

This weekend, sun, patios, and even bare-legs came out in full spring effect. {Heck yes.}

As I pulled out a dress and spring jacket, I was reminded of one of the true beauties of warm weather: oneoutfit. Come spring, we no longer have the added hassle of planning two outfits—the outfit we wear outside AND the striped-down version of it we wear inside.

We get to focus on picking + wearing just one outfit that will give us confidence, comfortability, and joy.

And one of my favourite spring pieces—that takes you effortlessly and elegantly from coffee to cocktails—is a tailored spring coat.

Today, I’m showing you one of the ways I style my spring coat, and giving you a little inside look by dissecting what exactly is at play in this seemingly simple outfit.

(And I’m actually utilizing all these tricks in this single outfit!)

The best stores for online shopping in Canada (and one site you NEED to know about!)

Sorry international friends, this post may not be that helpful to you. But it’s something I wanted to share because over here in Canada, online shopping has been tough.

In Canada, online shopping has involved paying for shipping, paying for return shipping (or deciding it’s not worth it and keeping the item—the worst thing for our closet!), surprise expensive duties we may or may not get hit with, or the messages “online shopping is not available in your country” and “we cannot ship to Canada at this time.” The worst, right?

It's with a little happy dance, I say it's gotten a little easier over the past few years. In fact, even as a chronic returnerer I am now able to avoid the malls + shop online regularly—without wasting any pennies.
