Spring must have: Outerwear edition

Ok Canadians spring is here!  Buh bye winter!  You're all packed up!

With spring comes a new wardrobe!!  Time to pack up the parkas and sweaters to make room for all the spring newness!  While I have been out and about in the market for work I have also been looking for new pieces to add to my wardrobe. Let's be honest, I looked pretty slummy all winter.  I lived in tights! Not very business casual appropriate but since I spent 95% of my time behind a computer I figured WTH eh!

Well, I guess I was doing something right because they gave me a promotion 8 weeks ago!! This could also explain the inconsistent blog posts as well :) .  So between my new gig & spring what better excuse is it to revamp my wardrobe.  Here are the top three must have outerwear pieces i saw in the market this spring:

1. The Denim Jacket

Walk down any street and you will see at least one person rocking the denim jacket.  It's light, versatile and the ultimate layering piece.  Pair it with a cute pair of jeans for a casual day or rock it with a floral printed dress and pumps for a night out.  The denim jacket is truly this season's most affordable must have item! Every retailer across the board has one in their assortment this year.  I picked mine up at Wal-Mart for $25! What a steal!

2.  The Cotton Utility Jacket

This jacket really adds the finishing touch to your outfit.  A true no-brainer piece that can be tossed on and make you look trés stylish!  If you are looking to add one of these to your wardrobe you probably won't have to look too hard as I saw a version of this jacket in every store while i was out and about.  If you are looking for a dressier piece check out Banana Republic's version.  Old Navy has a very budget friendly middle of the road version but my 2 favs are Aritzia's & Garage's washed down version.  Perfect to toss on over my much loved tights!

3. Sports Bomber

Ok... this item is not a true must have but certainly the most trendy. Channel the 90's .. ie sporty spice!  I am still debating whether or not i can rock a floral printed version.  No not there yet but i certainly picked a solid black one up at Smart Set.  Hurry it's on sale now!

Daily Randomness:
-I'm returning the Sephora Collection Rouge infusion lip stain in magenta. It's awful.  I purchased this on a whim after watching a review by Makeupgeek.  It feels watery on the lips and did not stain.  It came off almost immediately after application.

-After two days of rain i am beyond happy to see Mr Sunshine today!  Hello Sun!  Too bad i didn't check the weather before leaving the house. My feet are feeling a little warm in these boots!
