La Vie en Rose

Pretty in pink is the name of the game and Gail and Leslie are putting the “rose” in rosé with these beautiful spring looks.


I got my rose-coloured glasses so everything’s coming up roses! This pink skirt is an oldie but a goodie. I had it especially made for me a couple of years ago by design duo Greta Constantine.

The skirt is made of a stretchy but very durable material so it allows you to feel “held in” but still comfy because comfy is important.

I decided to pair this bold coloured skirt with an equally bold top in the form of this neon bodysuit. The neon trend continues unabated and admit that I jumped on the bandwagon. The bodysuit features a plunging neckline and batwing slings.

I completed my look with these floral pumps and voila, my pretty in pink look is complete.

For my tall girls, here is an option for you: Skirt // Bodysuit


 I believe a suit is one of the easiest outfits to rock. Why you might ask…because you don’t have to try hard to pair it with anything. The jacket matches the pants and bing bang boom, you’re beasically reay. And not only are you ready, you look pulled together and fly.

I am not ashamed to admit that I stalked this pink floral suit for weeks, probably months before clicking the button on this purchase.  I love the colour and the print was to die for, but I was trying to hold out for a sale (yeah a girl’s gotta work within her budget!lol). But one day cold winters day, I caved in and scooped this up off the River Island site an quite frankly, I don’t regret it!

I wanted to mix prints and textured so I paired this beautiful suit with a printed blouse and teddy bear coat. This purse was the perfect pink accent and a nice touch to round out the look. TALL SLIM GIRLS BEWARE: While I ADORE River Island, they are not one for making their pants for tall girls. I got a way with it in these pants, but when I buy wider leg trousers or jumpsuits from them I have to think twice. I usually need to go up a size – or two, to get enough length in thehem, which means an automatic trip to the tailor if I can’t maiver it with a belt or hide the waist line with a jacket or top. Please River Island, give us a little extra length in those hemlines!!!! I still love you though!!!xoxo

Now that I’m looking like a boss, I’ma go do some boss-tings!OL (i.e. brunch with the girls!!!:-)
