Friday Favourites

I’m back with another collection of random things that have captured my heart and attention this week!

Favourite Accessory Beth from Rustic Rose Jewelry in Alberta reached out to me to take a look at her jewelry and I fell head over heels for it AND am excited to be bringing it to DRB! It will be making it’s debut very soon, in the meantime I am crushing on this gorgeous dream catcher necklace from her!

Favourite Food A while back I hosted a Pampered Chef party and the presenter made the most delish Hamburger Salad ever. Unfortunately over time I lost the recipe so I was thrilled when I stumbled upon Pioneer Woman’s Cheeseburger Salad and in a full circle moment seen that she had adapted it from the Pampered Chef recipe! It is a staple salad in our house!

Favourite Wall Gallery I am obsessed with decorating with portraits and pictures that I have taken myself and have an entire pinterest collection dedicated to hoarding wall gallery inspiration. With that said, my all time favourite wall gallery is one I did myself and adorns my living room wall!

Favourite Belly Laugh Oh my word, my husband shared this video with me and I laughed until tears were rolling down my face. It had me from the start but at 1:40 it tipped me over the edge! So funny!

I hope you enjoyed this weeks round-up and that you have an amazing April weekend!

Cheers,

Spring Style Forecast- Part 2

Continuing on from Part 1 of our Spring Style Forecast I have compiled a few more of this seasons hottest trends…..

Floral Prints

I thought floral was hot last year but we haven’t seen anything yet! Soft and subtle or bold and bright, floral prints are the HOTTEST trend of spring.

Cold Shoulder

This trend has me so excited, there are so many gorgeous cold shoulder tops coming in! Style tip: pair a cold shoulder top with your favourite pair of jeans….hiding your legs when your baring your shoulders makes for a balanced, classy look and draws the attention upwards!

Stripes

Stripes are proving to be a classic spring favourite and I love the twist that is popping up this spring combining stripes with floral prints!

I am really excited to add this weekly feature to our blog to share the TEN newest arrivals that have landed at DRB.

We are working towards releasing all of our weekly arrivals on Tuesdays so even though today may be a recap of styles that have been recently posted next Tuesday will hopefully be a whole new slate of spring goodies! We are crossing our fingers that our next shipments get here in time!! We are expecting a few hiccups along the way before we get our timing right.

Regardless, I plan to highlight some of our hottest styles incorporated into outfits that will inspire you to dress for the seasons and beyond!

Friday Favourites

Wow, it has been a crazy week here at DRB juggling business as usual with my last minute mad dash to get my books in order for the accountant! Every year I tell myself I won’t procrastinate but every year I do! But I have survived and am here today with my first Friday Favourites compilation where I will share a few things that have caught my eye throughout the week!

Spring 2017 Style Forecast

Spring has officially sprung according to the calendar and thankfully we have been getting a taste of that fabulous warmer weather which reminds me of this meme I seen the other day…..

march22 2017 fb3

Just change the 45 degrees to 10 degrees and it is 100% appropriate for us in Canada! Isn’t it funny how quickly we adjust and adapt to our changing seasons?

With the warmer weather also comes the anticipation of switching out our heavy winter coats and chunky knits with lighter spring options!

Don’t get caught in the “heat” of the changing seasons……I am here to highlight the hottest trends of Spring 2017 over the next couple weeks so you will be style wise and ready to go!

Spring 2017’s Hottest Colours

I am always excited to check out Pantone’s colour forecasts for each season and how the colours pop up in the newest fashions.

March10 2017 FB2.jpg

I have noticed “Pale Dogwood” popping up all over the fashion world and I think the biggest reason is because it works so well with all skin tones!23144 pretty blooms baseball tee blush.jpg

Pretty Blooms Baseball Tee

“Kale” is a timeless classic colour that we are excited to see carried into Spring 2017!

Top Of Class Cardigan

Bell Sleeves & Ruffles

Light and flowing just seems to feel right after a cold winter and wearing heavy, warm fabrics. Subtle bell sleeve and ruffles are adding a nice touch of femininity and whimsy this spring!

Distressed Jeans

Oh ya, I am above excited that distressed jeans are still holding strong as a hot trend, they are a personal favourite of mine! Pair them with a classic top and flats or wedges for a perfect casual chic look.
