It’s Cherry Blossom season in Vancouver and I’m loving it! There are trees in full bloom throughout Vancouver, and everyone is coming out to photograph them and take part in the Annual Cherry Blossom Festive, which runs March 24 – April 17. Daniella and I have started a new tradition of shooting among the cherry blossoms and this year Daniella scouted the perfect location in Burnaby, under a canopy of what looks like pink snow – so beautiful!
With the weather also turning, I am fully embracing the Spring season. I’m pulling my lighter and brighter favorites out of the closet, as nothing says Spring quite like the color white; it makes everything look so crisp and fresh! Everything that I am wearing in this week’s style shoot are from seasons past and because they are classic cuts and neutral in color, I’ve been able to carry them through the years without looking dated. When I work with my clients on their “Rockin Walk-In” wardrobe session, I always encourage them to work with what they have. If it works for your style category and body silhouette, and if the style is timeless, all you need to do is add a few accessories to style the look in a relevant way. Sometime new isn’t always better, we just need to wear what we love and love what we wear!
Take for example my white cotton blazer. I got this at Zara almost 4 years ago, and it’s still going strong! I slipped it over my silver pleated peplum blouse, which is a real oldie that I picked up almost 10 years ago at Winners on the sales rack for $20 – score! I can’t even believe it still fits me but I love this piece and can’t seem to let it go. The peplum cut is great for camouflaging the tummy area and the fabric has a lovely reflective sheen to it and works beautifully for all seasons, casually or dressed up. AND, I love how it coordinates so nicely with my vintage sparkly clutch from Value Village!
These ankle zip, blush pink pants are Jbrand (my favorite demin brand because they fit me the best!), also from Winners from 3 years ago, are the perfect fit and length. Being petite it’s challenging to find a hemline that does not require alterations, especially when there’s a zipper detail. For the most part, I always need a tailor to alter my hemline, and it’s a wise idea to get to know a great taylor in your area!
My shoes are by Sophia Webster (I die!) and I got them at The Bay downtown 3 or 4 years ago. I absolutely love this designer simply because her shoes have so much personality or, should I say #NadittudeTM! – haha. The delicate leather floral detail on the front really stand out and every time I wear them, I get so many compliments! More over, her ornate and colorful shoe designs elevate a simple outfit so beautifully!
And in case you didn’t know, I’ll be taking over Value Village’s Instagram feed over the next three days so be sure to follow along and join in on the fun! Click here to learn more
