While we have rain in the forecast for the next little while (April showers, sigh) even just a few days of glorious sunshine was all the convincing I needed to break out all my spring trends.

This Aritzia kimono is basically this goal incarnate: it combines a wear-with-anything breezy silhouette with a dreamy floral print in the perfect spring colour palette (think of this paired with blue jeans, powdery pinks, airy whites or chic greys). Best of all, its base is black—while I love me some colour, the ever-elegant black backdrop makes this so much more versatile.

This is a deceptively detail heavy look (between the lace-up heels to the print to the texture play with the leather leggings) so all that’s needed to pull it together is some delicate jewelry, which I sourced as usual from the ever-chic offerings of Leah Alexandra.

I can’t stress enough how much it means to me to receive a note at any point but last week, it was especially incredible and I so appreciate it. So thank you again from the bottom of my heart!
