I hate to be a Canadian cliché, but I'm so happy to see the weather getting warmer. It means I can stop dressing in twos (i.e. snow boots and heavy parka for the commute to work and open-toe shoes and blazers for when I get there).

The warmer weather is also making for more interesting weekend-wear. I've been able to bust out two of my favourite things right now: lace-up shoes and long sleeveless jackets/waistcoats.

I find lace-up shoes so whimsical and fun. Although a bit cumbersome to put on, they almost make me feel like a ballerina. I picked up these nude leather flats at the Gap a few months ago during the holidays. I scored them at 50% off and haven't really been able to wear them until now.

The long sleeveless jacket is a trend I am happy to get on board with. I layer it with everything, including jeans, skirts and dresses. I've even rocked it at work with a pencil skirt and blouse. It's a great transitional piece that I never expected I would love so much. The look can be a bit overbearing sometimes, which is why I chose a lighter colorway. Some of my sartorial choices with this piece have been a bit questionable, but I'll continue to experiment, nonetheless.
