Latest Outfit: Summer Whites

Summer white with touches of cognac leather
Madewell jacket and boots | Joe Fresh blouse | Bootlegger Temperance collection 'Marlow' skirt (c/o) | J. Crew belt | Gap clutch

Hello, glorious spring weather! With sunshine and temperatures in the mid-teens last weekend, it was time for my first bare-legs outfit of the season. This eyelet skirt is from Bootlegger's all-white Temperance summer 2014 collection, which I had the pleasure of previewing last Friday. The tops and dresses boast luxe finishes and details like crochet, lace, raw-edged silk, and embroidery. Definitely worth checking out.

#GudPopUp Shop Open This Weekend

If you have time during this sun-drenched weekend to do a little exploring in Gastown, make a point of stopping by the Gud Pop Up Shop, located in the Greenstems florist's shop (315 Abbott St. at West Cordova). Not only is the setup a feast for the eyes (hello, floral arrangements and succulents colour-coordinated to Gud's body and hair care products), it's a great chance to get better acquainted with the new line from Burt's Bees.

Luxe or Less: Floral Shoes

Lush petals and a good mix of darker colours give these shoes year-round appeal. Play up their ladylike allure with a full midi skirt or wear them with faded boyfriend jeans for a casual-luxe vibe.
