Happy Easter Monday!  Every year, I want to do a photo shoot with the cherry blossoms as a backdrop.  How can I resist the beautiful flowers?  I managed to ask my photographer to capture some soft light photos (with the flowers) to create a romantic look.

What do you think of my caged heels?  I popped in Nine West last week and had no intention of buying shoes, but ended up with two pairs.  Go figure.  I love the caged heels trend and I can’t wait to restyle these with skinnies or shorts.

Five things you don’t know about me

1.  I never used a backpack throughout high school.  Does the Prada nylon one counts?  Haha, just kidding.  Instead of a backpack, I carried a briefcase and jammed all my books in there.  It looked similar to the picture below.  I’m not sure why I didn’t use a backpack but that was “in” among my friends.  I don’t recall where I bought them, but I do remember that I was partial to the tan coloured ones.  I can only squeeze a couple of binders and one textbook in this bag so it’s not that practical.

It’s embarrassing, but I don’t really know how to tweet.  Probably because I’m old. ;)  I’m learning though.  Last month, I tweeted about this pair of sandals and of course I had to mention Forever 21.  Thanks to Forever 21 for retweeting my pic, I got 405 Twitter favourites and 87 retweets!  That’s one heck of an accomplishment for me!  Happy Tweeting!

I know.  I know.  Another Forever 21 item, can’t help it, this romper is too cute to pass up.  Like a jumpsuit, a romper can take you from day to night.  The only disadvantage is that it’s inconvenient to go to the washroom.  My advice is to cut out the caffeine (for the day, of course). ;)

Blue jumpsuit

Pumps:  J. Crew (old)  Clutch:  CKNW Handbags (old)
Bracelet:  Hermes  Watch:  Hong Kong
Necklace:  Vintage  Earrings:  Aldo Accessories


It’s officially spring so that means I’m taking out all my dresses, shorts, and jumpsuits.  Jumpsuits are a hot trend this spring and summer.  I love the vibrant colour of my jumpsuit.  Who doesn’t love cobalt blue?  I can see myself wearing this jumpsuit in a variety of ways.  Perhaps with a cute cropped top and a pair of sky-high heels next time. :)
