POWERFUL RED SUIT


Hola, babeeeezzzz! Ok! It has been four weeks since my last blog and I swear I've been praying for it not to rain so I can go out and shoot. And don't even try to tell me to bring an umbrella, there's only so many shots I can take with an umbrella in hand, and most importantly the camera getting wet is a big no no! But like Brandon Lee said, "It can't rain all the time" so the moment it stopped raining I put my hair in a bun, put on some sunglasses and went shooting! Ain't nobody taking extra time putting on makeup when the weather app shows "no rain" for only an hour!

Spring is just around the corner and I could not be happier about it, fall and spring are my most favourite seasons when it comes to style. For my transitional outfit I wanted to showcase this powerful red suit from Massimo Dutti, which you can also buy separately, the pants and jacket are both gorgeous pieces. I love it together for that CEO Babe look, but I especially love wearing it separately. The jacket adds a pop of colour to any outfit and the pants fit so well that they look great whether you combine with flats for a weekend look or power it up with a pair of killer pumps. However, I decided to make this suit look powerfully feminine, so I paired it up with my new kitten heel slingbacks from Zara. Unfortunately they've sold out in all all sizes, but seeing as polka dots are so in this year you can find similar shoes here and here. I am so happy polka dots are in this season, they are far from a trend, more so making a comeback and everyone should have at least one polkadot piece in their closet. My favourite polka dot piece is the hand-me-down Prada Dress that my friend gave to me!

Other great news I wanted to share is that Daniel and I decided to buy a one way ticket to Bali, and right after that we are going to Europe for 6 weeks. We both chose one thing we don't love about our city, Vancouver, and came up with gloomy weather and the fact that it is a quiet city, for us, anyway. With that being said, we will be getting the sun from Indonesia and surrounding countries, come back to Vancouver for a couple weeks to attend our good friends' wedding and then head to Europe where we are thinking to temporarily settle in Portugal, but that part is still being decided. All that matters is that the tickets are booked. We absolutely love Vancouver and will always have a home here, but no city is perfect, we can't change the weather or vibe of the city, so why not move somewhere that can give us that. I'm so excited about all of this, finding someone that is as easygoing as I am when it comes to packing your bags and move elsewhere is so liberating. And I ain't one to live off a backpack or about that low maintenance life, lol, we will live our lives as close to the way we do here, except with more sunshine and liveliness. I also had an aha moment recently about what I am passionate about in life and figured out my career path, but I will leave that conversation piece for my next blog post, one good news at a time. Mwuuah!

What are some of your favourite transitional pieces?

  18. Definitely powerful. I love what such a bold and powerful color does to a pant suit on a woman. Stunning. I was just reading a book over the holidays about a woman who wore a powerful red trench coat to meet a client and the impression it left on them – this reminded me of that.
