Spring Has Sprung... with West 49!

I was lucky enough to shop West 49's Spring Collection a few weeks ago when they asked me to put together a look for the upcoming season. The outfit I came up with may be a bit premature for Vancouver's current weather, but it includes all the elements of Spring that I'm excited for: cut-out details, graphic prints, and a tiny bit of neon.

Truthfully, I haven't been to West 49 in years (not since my younger wannabe skater days) but I was really impressed to find a number of cute items that easily suit my changed tastes in in fashion/style. If you haven't been to West 49 in a while, I recommend checking out their offerings... it's not the store you might think it is!

  6. I'm always surprised when I go into West 49 - they have surprisingly cute pieces, nothing like back in the day when it was all chunky Vans and wallet chains :) I love the skirt you picked!

  11. West 49 sounds great, we don't have it in the UK, but I'd love to have a nosey! You look so pretty, I love the skirt and the top with it is perfect. Your hair is gorgeous too, so effortlessly chic
