New Kids on the Block

March 20, 2013

Dress c/o Zara Canada, vintage clutch, flats c/o Tieks, earrings c/o Poshlocket,
Persol sunglasses c/o SmartBuyGlasses Canada, Club Monaco ring

Sometimes, it’s okay to jump on the bandwagon. Usually, I try to go for the pieces that not everyone has, but in the case of this Zara Canada dress, I’m totally fine with it. A couple of my cross-country blog lovelies (Kate and Vickie) also nabbed it up to celebrate the launch of Zara Canada’s e-com site, and I’m happy that I’m part of the Colour Block Dress Gang.

I feel like it’s the perfect piece for cross-season transitions: though this was a particularly sunny day so I could juuust get away without tights, for now, I’ll probably be covering up with tights and some booties. Can’t wait to style it up in a whole bunch of different ways.

To really keep it spring-esque for now though, these neon Tieks are the perfect thing to add a touch of freshness. So in love with the colour! As always, they’re unbelievably comfortable – will definitely be wearing these on heavy-rotation too!
