Spring Lookbook | #2014BloggerChallenge

Today is a day of many firsts for me. Not only is it my first ever Outfit of the Day post, but it is also the first time I've 'officially' shown my face on my blog! We're soon approaching my blog's first year anniversary, so it's about time I show my face right? 

Today's 2014 Blogger Challenge was to make a simple post of an outfit we would where in spring. Instead, I've taken the opportunity to create a mini lookbook. Somehow I always find myself over-achieving for these challenges haha :P Also, sorry for the awkward posing and such, you'll come to learn (if you haven't already) that I am a very awkward person in many situations...

OUTFIT #1

My first outfit is for the warm spring days where if it weren't for the melting snow around you, it would feel like summer. Though I still find myself sticking with monochrome clothes, I do like to add some colour when the weather gets warmer.

Shirt: Guess
Skirt: Walmart
Boots: Target

Bow: Handmade

I've recently loved wearing half my hair up. I always find that my scalp starts to hurt when I wear my hair in a high pony for an entire day, so this hairstyle is perfect for keeping my hair out of the way without a ponytail. I also have a slight obsession with bows... Let me know if you want a DIY post on how I made this bow!

A closer look on my boots from Target. These are my first pair of heeled ankle boots and I love them!

Cardigan: Forever XXI

It's normally pretty chilly in Canada during the springtime so I put on this oversized knit cardigan for the morning and evening when the temperature is still pretty low.

OUTFIT #2

Like I mentioned before, the weather here tends to be on the colder side. This outfit is much more realistic and suitable for spring in Canada.


Denim Shirt: American Eagle
Leggings: Uniqlo
Combat Boots: Globo Shoes
Jacket: Gap

These photos weren't originally going to be used for this post, so you'll have to excuse my craziness haha :P 

OUTFIT #3

Little bonus outfit idea from my older sister, Connie! For the day where the temperature outside was miraculously 23°C, this is what she chose to wear....

Oh, side note, this was part of the present I gave her for her birthday, just saying. ;)


Dress: H&M

So this is my very first outfit post coming to an end. I hope I was able to give you some ideas on how to revamp your wardrobe for spring!

I'll see you soon! x

  1. I love your dress from h&m, it really suits you. I want to start wearing more dresses for spring and summer as I normally just wear shorts, and I'd love to know how you made that bow yourself, it looks like you'd bought it in a shop!
