Finally, I’m kicking off my short and sweet festival series sharing my looks from Palm Springs and Revolvefest. I had such a fun time styling festival looks and literally want to do it all over again! Since Festival season has officially kicked off I wanted to get all my looks up on the blog for a little bit of inspiration!
Festival season has officially kicked off with both weekends of Coachella now over. I didn’t attend Coachella this year but was out in the desert for Revolve Festival. The hot and dry heat can be harsh on your skin and ain’t no one has time for dry damaged skin! Last year, my newbie self to the desert only brought out moisturizer and sunscreen.
Last weekend the weather in Toronto was GORGEOUS. Can’t say the same now, it’s almost like Spring came to tease us and now Winter is having its last stretch. At least there hasn’t been any more snow since Sunday *rolls eyes*. But in all honesty, the weather has been pretty mild so far this April and I really can’t complain. Plus, I’ve been able to go bare legged for a couple of days so far soooo that’s another WIN! If you’re super excited, like me, for this Spring weather and are looking to add some colour into your wardrobe, well have I got the colour for you. Now before I let the secret out to which colour will be hot for Spring. Let me start off by saying I was never into this particular colour, ever! I felt like it just didn’t suit my skin tone and was just a weird colour to wear. But, my mind has definitely been changed and I’ll be adding more pieces of this colour into my Spring closet! The 1 Color You Need to Try this Spring: Okay, so drumroll please… the 1 colour you need to try for Spring is lavender! Lavender was all over the SS19 runways and has been making quite the appearance on the ‘gram. It’s definitely girly but it’s worth a try even if you tend to stay away from pinks and purples, like me. I’m loving lavender with denim (like what I’m wearing above). It would also look…

Okay, let’s be real. This platform-90’s sneaker style has been a strange trend that not everyone has been in to. I’ve gotten mixed reviews over on Instagram for my pair. And to be honest, I wasn’t loving them either until I started to see them on basically every blogger. Slowly but surely these platform sneakers grew on me and I realized influencer marketing really works, lol! If you’re anything like me, you may not be totally into these kicks. But, give them a chance (cause they’re kEwL) and trust me, you may think you may not be able to rock them, but girl I know you can! Scroll below to see my top 5 platform sneakers for Spring.

As much as I’m over the cold and Winter (Spring, you’re free to show up at anytime now) I honestly love building my jacket wardrobe every year. I’ve been a huge fan of the teddy jacket the past couple of years. But, the puffer jackets have made a huge comeback, thanks to the 90’s trending in fashion, and I thought I’d give this trend a go! My metallic puffer jacket is from Shein (under $40) and actually pretty warm! I layered it with my black fuzzy turtleneck and I was so toasty. Besides my feet and face lol. I shared this puffer on Instagram stories and had such a great response to it that I decided to round up my favourite puffer jackets you need this Winter! My advice, get them all 😉 5 Puffer Jackets You Need for Winter: Shein Revolve Missguided Shopbop Pretty Little Thing Which puffer jacket is your favourite? xo Lauren

Happy 2019! First post of the year and I wanted to share a more dressier look and one of my favourite styles right now. Lately, I’ve been layering dresses and loving it. Especially when layering a little sparkle with a slip dress. It’s so fun to wear and gives you more coverage in the colder months. I’ve also been into layering my casual looks too, which I’ll be sharing more of this Winter. My slip dress and sheer tee are both from Shop Honey. And my boots are from Zara. I’ve linked some similar options below: Dress (similar) | Tee (similar) | Bootsxo Lauren

Jacket (50% off) | Sweater (50% off) | Jeans (50% off)| Bag (50% off) | Boots With the Holidays going strong and beautiful dresses everywhere, it can feel hard to shine and stand out in your casual outfits! And as tempting as it is to add sequins and glitter to every outfit, it’s just not practical. Creating a casual outfit to shine and stand out in can sometimes feel hard. Thankfully, Express has made it easy this Holiday season to not just shine with their Holiday pieces, but, with their casual pieces too. Below, I’m sharing my 3 ways to shine and stand out in your casual outfits with Express. 3 Ways to Shine and Stand Out in Your Casual Outfits: 1. Choose the right jacket One of the easiest ways to shine wearing a casual look is choosing the right jacket. Ditch the black puffer or peacoat for something more fun. A great jacket to help you shine is not only stylish but warm too. This faux fur lined boyfriend jacket literally checks off every box. It’s super warm, cozy and is very versatile, too! I love an oversized fit to make a statement. Plus, as the weather gets colder I can bundle more underneath because of it’s oversized fit! 2. Pick the perfect pair of pants As the weather gets colder, I like to swap out my light washed destroyed denim for darker wash denim. Sometimes, darker wash denim without some rips can be a little boring. I love how…
