Spring Fever

April…I have been waiting a long time for you to arrive. Usually April is the first glimpse of tulips in my front garden, the neighborhood bunnies sitting under our trees on the new grass that has been under the snow for 6 months and the promise of no socks, ballet flats and a light jacket. This year it seems spring has been delayed in Edmonton – insert a sigh of impatience here.

It may still be a little winter-ish here but I can’t ignore all the pretty spring colors that jump out at me as I’m browsing all my favorite fashion sites.  Flirty little dresses, sandals, pastel jackets and pants, florals – all brighten up my day.

If we come to the end of April and there is still snow on the ground well….I don’t care.  I won’t be able to ignore my spring fever any more.  Look out snow –  my pastel pants, floral prints and ballet flats are coming out to play.

While I was hiding from our horrible weather I pulled together a little spring wishlist of pretty springy items that would most definitely chase my winter blues away.


1.  J. Crew Scarf – a must on my list to keep the chill away on the cooler spring days
2.  Dior Trianon Eyeshadow Palette – brighten up those eyes with pastel popping colors
3.  Christian Laboutin Pigalle Spike Flats – the Laboutin Pigalle collection of shoes are to      die for in their heel and flat version.
4.  Rebecca Minkoff Mini Perry Tote – love the color on this beautiful tote
5.  Rag and Bone Vespa Jacket – a fabulous alternative to the black leather jacket
6.  Marc Jacobs T-Shirt with J.Crew Statement necklace
7.  Rag and Bone Jeans – lighter jeans – It’s Spring……

The month of LOVE has begun.  Who doesn’t enjoy a little love….or treats, or pink or hearts or……
