Spring has always been one of my favourite times of year. After months of hiding under puffy coats and bulky hats it’s time to get out into the city again and BE CUTE!
Unfortunately, this Spring has been postponed due to COVID-19 and the need to practice Social Distancing (and I do hope you all are doing your part). Instead of brunching on patios and sipping wine, er, soda in the park we are all stuck in our homes.
But, just because we are Social Isolating doesn’t mean that we can’t still be cute! If you’re like me, you still have to walk your furry friends a couple times a day and even if you don’t have dogs to take care of it is still recommended that you get out at least once a day to take a solo walk, jog or bike ride.
Staying active and getting fresh air is important for your mental health during this lock-down, and as long as you stay 6-feet apart from others you can do so safely and FASHIONABLY.
For my afternoon/evenings I like to take the time to get dressed up for what I call my
My (properly distanced) friend snapped this photo of me during one such adventure in Toronto last week.
This is an easy to put together look that mixes old and new from my closet and is functional for the activity it’s being worn for – waling these guys.

In the early days of Spring it’s still a little dull outside, so I like to stick to a basic black and white look. It’s chic and timeless. I start to mix more colour into the look as the days get warmer – like nature itself!
Here, I’m wearing bomber jacket made of sweatshirt material from
Forever 21. It’s a stable of day-to-day wear this time of year. Surprisingly warm and light it’s practical without being bland.
I accent it with a Kelly Green crossbody purse, a graphic popcorn Tee (both
Forever 21) and music note socks from Soxxy Socks. 🙂
Animal print continues to be a 2020 on-trend vibe … and I happily oblige with my tiered leopard print skirt (from
Shein, I think).
It’s muddy in the springtime in Canada so I need to wear boots, but they don’t have be ugly.
Timbos are popular for a reason, you know! I round the look off with a chartreuse headband from Addition Elle and a girl shouldn’t go anywhere without her Dior Sunnies!
This entire look is without nylons – it’s spring – RELEASE THE LEGS!
We may be in a global pandemic, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t look great!
How are y’all remaining sane and managing your mental health while Social Isolating?
