dreaming of springtime

I really need a Monday pick-me-up, and coffee is just not going to cut it on this dreary day in Vancouver. It's rainy, cold, and all-around miserable! My Spring clothes are grumbling at me from my closet as I am reverting back to my warm cozy sweaters and winter boots. This should not be happening in April! While I wait for the sunshine to arrive (hopefully later on this week), I was browsing one of my go-to blogs, Fashion Gone Rogue, and came across some amazing Spring-inspired campaigns. I can't wait for bright colours, wavy hair, and the whole relaxed attitude that Spring and Summer bring. Especially with all the stores carrying shorts, florals, and pretty lightweight dresses, it is impossible for me to wrap my head around winter wear anymore. I want no worries, no torrential rain, just loveliness. Is that too much to ask? I sincerely hope your Monday was more cheery than mine. I'm hoping a get together with some best friends is going to put a smile on my face. And when the weather clears up, I promise there will be more outfit posts! For now, enjoy a little springtime inspiration.

  1. I agree... we were so teased by the pretty weather one or two weeks ago and now I've heard it's just non stop rain til the weekend at least! :( Thanks for the doses of inspiration with these photos! Btw did you get my last email about meeting? How does your finals schedule look- think we can squeeze it in?


  2. Thanks for the breath of spring. It was so bloody awful out today. The only thing even close to chic on me when I went out were my rubber boots. The rest of me said "I want to stay as warm and dry as possible for the time I have to be out here."

    Spring is supposed to be back in a few days. Hope so! With new pictures from you, right? :)

  3. I am dreaming about Spring as well! It was here during the weekend but today it's dark and rainy outside... These pictures are beautiful!

    Check out my Monday post... maybe it will cheer you up a bit... or that's the point at least :)



  4. Ugh I'm wearing my winter boots and layering like mad today, but I refuse to wear my winter coats because I just drycleaned them all and put them away for the season. Enough of this cold weather!

  5. I love the hair in all of these shoots. I have yet to master the wave, but I'm working on it!

  8. I completely agree with you, I'm so over dressing for the Winter but Colorado keeps teasing me with sunny days one minute and snowy days the next! Love all these looks :)


  9. I am screaming for spring to come ! It's april,god damn it ! But I have to stay close to my warm clothes if I want to be fresh when spring comes for real!
