Go Bold

When it comes to clothing, I'm not nearly as bold as I used to be. In high school my mom referred to my daily clothing choices as 'costumes' (looking back, they totally were) and I studied fashion in university, so dressing for lectures was practically a course credit. I used to wear lots of colour too - pink, turquoise and red - but my grown up self favours grey, black and white. How boring.

This spring, colour is back in a big way. Coloured denim, colour blocking and neon, I am finding myself once again attracted to a bright spectrum and ready to inject my wardrobe with colour. It all started with a pair of cornflower blue jeggings from my BFF Alex in Australia and last week I picked up some really fun tops at Old Navy (I'm always surprised what I can find in there for a song). J. Crew's entire Spring collection is amazing and there are some great pieces at local favourite Aritzia too.

So what do you think? Will you be going bold this Spring too?

PS. Have you checked out ShoeMint yet? It's a monthly shoe club created by actress Rachel Bilson and celeb stylist Nicole Chavez. Start on the site by taking a fun style quiz and based on your answers, shoes are 'selected' for you each month. ShoeMint shoes are made by Steve Madden and are only $79.98. I am coveting the 'Hattie' shoe above, so much fun for Spring!
