Craving a break from neutrals, I’d planned a series of colourful spring outfits for the week but had a nagging urge to get creative and infuse a little something extra into the posts.
Inspired by a collage exercise that @jasmindowling shared, I decided to try it out myself using the colours within the outfits as inspiration for the collage. It’s a quick and easy way to get creative and just the motivation I’ve needed to crack open some old magazines.
So here’s a fresh, peachy outfit I’m loving for spring PLUS a fun, colourful collage. I hope you’ll tune in each day this week for a new outfit and a new (just for fun) creation!

Years ago I used to envy bloggers who were churning out new head-to-toe looks on the regular. Of course, I’ve since realized that it’s so much more fulfilling when an old item in my closet can be given a whole new life by pairing it with something fresh. This look is made up of items I’ve collected over many years and each one tells a little story.
This duster is a long time spring favourite from ESBY’s first release of the style a few years back (early 2017). I love the rich clay colour of the heavy linen and how it pairs so well with their newly released vintage brick Marie Top (which is indeed reversible!). The joy I felt when I realized that they would work so well together was not insignificant.
I’ve lost track of when I added my ivory linen Florence Pants because the style has become so integral to my closet but they’re at least a couple of years old now. These sandals were a purchase during my short time in Barcelona last summer and I couldn’t wait to bring them out for this year.
My jewelry collection is largely Canadian-made and four of my favourite independent designers are all part of this look (linked to each below).
While it takes time to build a wardrobe you love, it’s well worth the wait!
