Vivacious Pink

Skot Apparel PartySkirt, Elie Tahari leather jacket, Confetti & Co tee, H&M Scarf and mittens, Chanel 2.55 bag, Christian Louboutin shoes, LOVECOCO necklace

Valentine's day is fast approaching and while I'm happy to skip the chocolates and hallmark cards, I do love beautiful splashes of heart-shaped decorations all over the place.  This adorable heart tee was a gift from the oh-so-sweet Amy of Confetti & Co. If you haven't checked out her amazing shop full of fun party decorations yet, you're missing out! Speaking of a party, how awesome is this PartySkirt in vivacious pink? I'm often in awe of the many talented self-starters in our beautiful city of Vancouver and am inspired by their creativity and ambition. Whether it's fashion, home decor, or baked goods, I hope to feature more local businesses on the blog this year!

Pastel Winter

Joe Fresh blouse, Oak and Fort leggings, ASOS faux-fur scarf, Stuart Weitzman shoes, Kate Spade clutch, Tiffany & Co bracelet

We've been pretty lucky over here on the west coast this winter. The weather has been beautiful - barely any rain and lots of bright, spring-like days. This means I've been wearing a lot of pastel coloured Joe Fresh silk blouses with light layers lately. Their tops are so affordable and perfect for both work and play. This simple blouse and leggings look wouldn't be complete without some fun accessories. The Kate Spade glitter clutch and Tiffany & Co bow bracelet were from dear friends of mine for Christmas.  I love them both and will treasure these for years to come.  Classic, wearable gifts are always a good idea!

Home Office

The corner of our apartment where the Christmas tree once lived was looking awfully empty after the holidays. To fill the void, we put in a new desk and setup a small home office! The simple yet elegant desk was a bargain find from Target and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. I've been spending a lot of time in my new favourite spot in the apartment. Whether it's work or light reading, this bright and airy corner is perfect for a little me-time and gets me inspired for more creativity!

The details:
You've asked so here they are!

Desk (Threshold Basic Desk) from Target

Hello "Heart of Gold" Print from SS Print Shop
Branch jewelry holder from West Elm
Gold Lip tea cup and saucer from Lofty Living

New Year New Look

Zara dress and coat, Michael Kors bag, Jessica Simpson boots, J.Crew necklace, Marc Jacobs watch

Happy 2014! I hope your new year is off to a great start. It's been a busy couple of weeks for us, which is why I'm just getting the chance to post this outfit now. Both the silk dress and the tweed and leather coat were recent sale finds from Zara. I thought, what better way to kick off the new year than to wear a bold red dress and a multi-textured coat? Not only is this classic with a twist look great for work, it's also perfect for a dinner date.  This look also expresses a tougher, bolder side of me and reflects how determined I am in working to make this the best year yet both professionally and personally.  I hope to share some exciting news about LOVECOCO and other ideas in the making soon!
