April Showers






Shirt: J. Crew, Jeans: Gap, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Bracelets: c/o Derng, c/o Shlomit Ofir, and O My Heart!, Watch: Michael Kors, Belt: Jacob, Shoes: Zara, Nails: Butter London Disco Biscuit c/o Nail Polish Canada, iPhone case: J. Crew

Sometimes blogging proves to be very difficult. After not getting photos of my Easter dinner outfit on Easter day, I decided to dress back up in it the next day for photos. (Yes, sometimes this happens.) Just as I was about to grab my camera, it started to pour. I checked the weather forecast and it's apparently supposed to rain every day but 2 for the next 14 days. Sigh. Sad that I had zero outfit posts for the coming week, I took off my Easter dinner outfit and put on my super comfy clothes and took to the couch. I heard the rain taper off and I ran outside and snapped these quickly so that I'd have something to share - so here you have my holiday Monday lounge around the house outfit, with a few extra accessories!

Speaking of accessories, I am loving my new mixed metal bracelets from Derng! I love how nicely the gold & silver tones go together, and I can wear them with virtually everything! Stay tuned for a fun giveaway happening soon!! 

And let's jump from my wrist to my nails for a second - Nail Polish Canada was kind enough to send me two Butter London polishes to review! I had never tried Butter London before, but I am pretty impressed and loving this shimmery almost jelly-like polish called Disco Biscuit! Both of the colors I picked out are different from everything else in my collection!

I hope you all had an amazing Easter weekend!

  2. Hi pretty girl! Your accessorizing is so much fun and really elevates this simple outfit. The pops of pink are so sweet and go perfectly with the leopard! I know how you feel about the rain - don't be discouraged though: living in Vancouver where our forecast calls for that kind of weather 75% of the year, I've learned that it's quite rare that a long term forecast is actually right. Some sun will surely sneak in there and you'll get some posts done!

    Hope you're having a great week Kate!

  4. Oh so pretty and the leopard is a bit unexpected but fun. And don't worry, the rain will go away soon and you will be able to snap pics of your cute outfits again.

  5. Love the pink knot bracelet, is that one of yours?
    Your lounge around the house look is rather more photogenic than mine all weekend. Done with being sick. Refusing to be sick again this year after last week!
