Spring Picks: Clothing & Acessories

All of a sudden it went from beautiful weather to somewhat cold and rainy weather here in Canada! Nevertheless here is a compilation of spring and summer clothing and accessory items that I have my eye out for.

Tops- I absolutely am LOVING the sheer chiffon tops, I love the movement of them and how they flow. They come in an assortment of colors and add the perfect pop of color to any outfit. I haven't bought any yet but my sister has a similar chiffon top (picture below) that pairs great with colored skinny jeans. I also am a lover of cardigans, I swear I have a weakness for them to be exact. The versatility is amazing, I wear them with dresses, tanks, and tees and they wear well with jeans, shorts, skirts, and dresses as I mentioned. I've noticed that button down printed tops are really popular this season as well. I saw quite a few of them at Old Navy and Urban Planet a while back. Lace detailing on tops and summer dresses is also another popular addition to clothing items these days, it adds a great feminine touch that's elegant and flirty. I really adore the white summer lace dress (also pictured below) it's a crisp, clean, and sophisticated look that is never out of style. 
Pants and Dresses- Colored skinny jeans are my go to these days! At first I was super self-conscious about wearing colored jeans just because I thought it would be too much but I was completely wrong!! Every store I walk into has a vast assortment of colored jeans, you name it they've got variations of pinks, and blues, to purples, and pastels. Currently I have a cobalt pair, a light blue pair, and two grey pair of skinny jeans. I would really like to add a mint color, and light pink to my collection. My best friend actually had gone to Super-Store and Joe Fresh has a nice variety of light colors! So far I've worn some of my old dresses a couple of times but I NEED new ones. I really like the ones below, the colors, the style, I like that they cinch in at the waist therefore elongating the legs and revealing a taller figure.

Accessories- As someone who wears a Hijab (head scarf) I love to change up my scarfs and get more bright colored ones. I went to Ardene the other day and was in awe, they had so many printed scarfs, and beautiful Pashmina pastel scarfs. Also flats are another spring/summer go to; they are comfortable, and look fab with anything you pair them with. Studded flats seem to be everywhere, Aldo has so many pairs with either studs, or crystal embellishment on them. Lastly I adore long dainty necklaces for summer.  Chunkier jewelry is also great for nights out, however for daytime accessories this necklace is great. It's inspired by the beach, Aldo also has great necklaces. A bit on the pricier side, but I find their accessories are unique.

What are some of your go to clothing and accessory items for the spring? Have you already swapped out your wardrobe for lighter and brighter colors?
Hope your having a great day, I plan to come aboard the blogging world in full force again as school is finally over.
