1 Dress 2 Ways

Dress: Forever 21 s/o
Blazer: Boohoo {similar}
Booties: Target
Feather Necklace: Stitches Outlet
Rose Gold Watch: Geneva 

Dress: Forever 21 s/o
Sweater: Bluenotes s/o {also styled here}
Rose Gold Watch: Geneva

It is still far too cold here to wear dresses, even with tights it's a daring move. I am dreaming of cute Easter outfits with pastel colored skirts and dresses but I think I will have to be more creative if I plan to leave the house at all! For those of you who have warmer weather, or are brave enough to rock a dress in "sprinter" (spring/winter) here is an excellent way to style your dress for formal and casual events.

OOTD: Simplicity

Top: Target
Jeans: Hollister color s/o
"Vintage" Watch Necklace: Stitches, also styled here

Here is a super simple outfit that you can put together with basic pieces from your wardrobe that you probably already own. The statement piece could be jewelry like I did, but you could also wear a statement jacket, scarf or even shoes. It's really easy to play and customize this look using different colors.

My Top 5 Spring Rain Boots

With yesterday being the first day of spring I thought I would do a spring inspired fashion wish list for springs most important staple...Rain boots!

1. Joules EVEDON $167.00 / 2. Kamik Jennifer Boot $79.99 / 3. Hunter Original Short Gloss Rain Boot $155.00 / 4. Hunter Asymmetric Color Block Boot $210.00 / 5. Joules WELLYPRINT $69.00

Why did I choose these 5? The first pair of boots are epitome of classic girly and I want them so bad. The Kamik boots come in all sorts of different vibrant spring colors and they are all so perfect. Nothing says perfect rain boots more than a bright yellow pair, am I right? Next, I love this swing on the classic Hunter boot. I've tried on a pair of original talls and with bigger feet it's a bit overwhelming. This color block pattern breaks up the appearance of a long boot and would help flatter larger feet. And finally a cute print/pattern was needed. Of course I chose one with dogs all over. It's easy to find a pair with anything that expresses your tastes.

OOTD: Leather & Pearls

T-shirt: Forever21 {similar}
Leather Jacket: Urban Behaviour
Jeans: old 
Wedge Sneakers: Charlotte Russe s/o
Necklace: Stitches Outlet {similar}

Tonight we went to the opening night of the movie Insurgent. I must say it was pretty darn good - better than the first one in the series. If you are a fan of post-apocalyptic/dystopian stories I highly recommend this series. Read the books too! 

My outfit tonight had some edgy inspiration and I added a necklace with a pearl strand to add a bit of girly. I love the edgy + girly combination. These sneaker wedges are super comfortable and I can walk around in them all day. I wish I could find them online but they were a gift from 2 years ago or so. They are a good item to invest in if you can find yourself a pair like mine. Also a good black leather jacket is a must have wardrobe staple, I've had mine for almost 4 years now.

Burger Review: Kelsey's

Messy Fish Sandwich
The Expectation:

The Reality:

"Wild North Pacific cod fillet brew-battered in house and fried to perfection. Topped with creamy coleslaw, fresh tomato slices, shredded lettuce and zesty tartar sauce on a rustic bun. "

comments: plain tasting, but not over powered with flavours or spices. Exactly what I expected from a fish sandwich which is why I gave it 4 stars. I had extra tartar sauce on mine because I love it. Very filling, definitely not stingy with the fish portions. 

The codfather of sandwiches!
