Sweater c/o Left on Houston, booties c/o Massimo Dutti,
Rebecca Minkoff bag, dress c/o Boutique Onze, H&M hat,

It's officially bare-leg weather! Yesterday was the first day that I had to actually had to shed my jacket because I was too hot - just a T-shirt, jeans and flats. It's kind of ridiculous how much joy it brought me. As much as I love Vancouver, I've always dreamed of living somewhere warm year-round - while I can understand how people would miss the seasons, bouncing between summer heat and spring warmth would be completely fine with me.

This is my general uniform for when temps start warming up: a breezy sundress (loving this 70s-esque Boutique Onze piece!) with a loosely knit sweater (as always, Left on Houston's sweaters never disappoint). A standout hat and tawny accessories add a bit of visual interest without losing comfort. This was the perfect look for weekend errands - we had a lot of running to do on Sunday (we were on a time crunch because Matt had a random last-minute errand he had to run, i.e. he was getting my birthday present) and this look did the trick.

Speaking of the onset of spring, you won't want to miss my Robson in Bloom giveaway! If you're in the Lower Mainland, you can win $100 to Zara - enter here and be sure to stay tuned for Melissa and Jen's (and enter Alicia's before the 10th to be in the running for $100 to Aritzia!). Happy Tuesday lovelies!

  6. Beautiful outfit! I'm with you on wishing for warmth year round. I know the people who don't have seasons always say they wish they did, but I'd be very happy with warm and hot.

    I keep waiting for it to get warmer so I can wear an outfit like this. A cute dress and cozy sweater are the best pieces for spring (bare legs of course)!

  7. Bare legs seems like a distant dream here in Toronto. I'm dreaming small, just to get rid of the coats!
