My big thing with the nice weather coming up is to stop looking like a schlub. When the weather is crappy, I am very basic with how I look – no make up, jeans and long sleeved v-neck sweater is pretty much my uniform. But now that the sun is coming out to play with us sad little winter-beaten Canadians, it’s time to make a change and spruce things up. I’ve already started with some new makeup (Bare Escentuals, I love you for not screwing up my rosacea), and now it’s time for some new duds!
As a very special treat the other week, Boy bought me my very first Anthropologie dress to celebrate the nice weather. I tend to wear all jewel tones (blues, greens and purples), so I am trying to branch out and get more colourful and I think the dress fits the bill!
I went in looking for another dress, but when I didn’t find it, this one caught my eye. It’s colourful and light and airy and I am hoping if the weather holds out, I might be able to wear it to my sister-in-law’s baby shower at the end of April.
Today with the weather being so nice, I am also mulling a trip to Smart Set on my lunch break. I saw an adorable dress in the window on my walk to work and if it’s in my budget and appropriate enough to wear to work, I think I might suck it up and buy it*. I am done with looking like a tired 27-year-old bum!
Anyway, as the weather warms up, I want to know – are you eyeing anything special for your waredrobe for the upcoming season? What items are you coveting?
*Okay, so the Smart Set dress might be blue, but it is still very pretty looking.
