Obsession File: Whites and Blues

I've been dreaming with soft whites and blues and I can't wait for the weather to warm up and dress lightly. Chambray and whites will be a big part of my summer uniform, and I'm loving these pieces above, I mean how cool and relaxed those striped pants look? And aren't flat espadrilles the best? By the way, if you're thinking of getting a pair of soludos I should tell you that they run a bit small, I bought mine a size bigger, so just take that in mind ;)

Don't you love how you can take a simple tee and some denim from day to night with the right accessories? It's all about swapping flats for heels, reaching out for a clutch, adding some sparkle, and tossing on a blazer, as easy as that! It's a formula that never fails, and when the night calls out for a casual but put together look, this is a great option ;)

Inspiration File: My Nourish Box

Happy Monday everyone, hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend! I want to start the week off with this beautiful gift I received from my blogging friend Rachel, all the way from Down Under, hoping to bring you some inspiring words for your week, and passing on some kindness ;) This is not a sponsored post at all nor was I asked to do it in exchange for this box; this is just what happens when you receive genuine love and care, and you feel like sharing it ;)

Just to give you some background, Rachel and I go back a couple of years when she was blogging at Little Bits of Lovely. We quickly became "online friends" and even though we don't talk that often, we have kept in touch and I really consider her a friend. So, imagine how nice it was to receive this lovely gift from her latest venture? This whole idea of sending a "nourish box" as a gift is brilliant, especially when is curated with such good taste, don't you think? I'm smitten with the contents, and I gotta tell you, I've never had such a luxurious candle that smells as incredible as this one does. So, make sure to check out My Nourish Box, and I'd suggest following her Pinterest account as she was in the list of top 20 fashion accounts to follow by Mashable (just saying!) ;)

My life File: Blush Shop

On Tuesday I shared what I wore to a lovely afternoon tea party at Blush Shop, and now is time to take you inside Michele's beautiful shop :) Hope you enjoy them, and if you don't follow her already on Instagram, you seriously are missing out! She has incredible style and her photos are always gorgeous, a must for sure!

Great Finds File: Shopbop Friends & Family

Well, well, Shopbop is having their Friends and Family sale so this would be the time to get anything that's been on your radar, because you'll be saving 25% ;) In my opinion, I'd be getting things you can wear for Summer, like comfy flat espadrilles and cute sandals, totes that would be great for weekends, beach trips, or just farmer's markets; and of course, cute little summer dresses that can be dressed both up and down ;)

This would also be a great time to invest in a classic bag, like a timeless satchel. My choices would be this, this or this. And if you're looking for a statement floral top, this is the prettiest I've seen in a while! Happy shopping ;)

As I was saying yesterday, I had a lovely afternoon at Blush Shop on Sunday, and this is what I wore for the tea party Michele hosted. I have to tell you, this skirt is the most comfortable pencil skirt I have ever had. Both the lace and the lining are stretchy making it feel incredibly comfortable and not restricted at all, so I highly recommend it if you like it, comes in white too, just saying ;)

On a different note, I've been having some issues with my links so I'm including them in photos as well, hoping they will work!

My life file: Eventful weekend

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I had a good one, starting with a fun night out with my Strive Life crew on Friday to see our friends Craig Stickland and Natural Animal perform. These guys super talented and I really recommend you check out their music, so so good! Then on Saturday I celebrated Matthew's 4th birthday (four!!!) with a picnic at the park ;) And on Sunday, I headed to Guelph with Jenny for an afternoon tea party at Blush Shop where we got together with some fellow bloggers, we sipped tea, had some sweets and shopped a little bit (not too bad huh?!) Hope yours was great too! Here are some snaps from last week, including some sneak peeks at upcoming posts ;)

Went to check out Indigo's Summer collection and took tons of photos that I'll share soon (so much good stuff! as usual)
