Miss Lady Bug

Happy May Day Everyone!

I don’t know about you but I am so done with this rainy, cloudy, dismal weather!

FAIL!! Mother Nature…FAIL! The good news is that you have the whole month of May to redeem yourself. Enough April showers already! You will receive a Mulligan for today’s weather debacle.  This rain simply won’t do.  There are wedge heels, summer dresses, and sun hats to be worn…….did you not get the memo?

This past Saturday, when the sun was shining strong , my boyfriend Ed and I took advantage of the day and snapped these shots for today’s post. I hope you like : )

 


This outfit is 100% thrift – minus the shoes and jewelry. Who says that you need serious coin to look fab!                                   **Note the Peggy Nash election sign on the front lawn** Today is election day!  Make sure you vote ; )

Mixing colour and print is a huge trend for the spring. Although it can seem daunting and you run the risk of looking like Bozo the clown, when executed well, the results can be simply fabulous!

Here are 3 key tips to keep in mind when mixing prints…

  1. Mix big prints with small prints. Try to keep the small prints on the bottom.
  2. If you want to play it safe then keep the colours similar. If you want to create an uber, edgy, show-stopping look, then experiment with complimentary colours.
  3. Pull the look together with a statement belt and accessories.

 

While we were shooting, the lady from a few doors down was taking a jaunty stroll.  She stopped for a chat ; )  She commented on my skirt, declaring that “it was beautiful, like a beautiful Lady bug!” She is fabulous in her pink coat and hat………don’t you think?  Bless her!! I love randomness!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!
