dreamin' in the shade

I'm still shocked by the warm weather. Around 5PM, the temperature reached 18°C and there were some ladies taking a stroll in flip-flops! It's weird to think that a week ago, I was still bundled up in a winter coat, freezing while waiting for the bus and risking my life (haha) on icy, slippery pavement. Oh, Quebec! You're full of surprises!
Today, I mixed a minty skirt with a bright lemon-coloured sweater. Pastels and crazy brights are a pretty unusual pairing, but they look very refreshing together. It's a fun take on the colour blocking trend. I picked white add-ons to keep the look light and springy. I wore my new lace tights for the first time and we instantly became best friends! This type of tights are perfect for warmer days - they let your legs breathe a little!

Skirt: Everly via Simons (30 $) // Sweater: SWS (3 $) // Tights: Ardène (3 $)
Shoes: Deena & Ozzy (10 $) // Sunglasses: Simons (12 $) // Earrings: vintage // Belt: vintage
