First Day of Spring

I really wish this is what it actually looked like in Vancouver on the first day of spring, but alas it is not. These were taken in a park outside of Ollie's family home in beautiful sunny Australia, but hopefully I will be able to wear this look at home soon. It is the first day of spring after all!

I bought both the skirt and top while in Australia and both were amazing deals. I think this was the absolute perfect time to visit because all of their summer items were on sale! It couldn't have been better timing because I will have everything ready for when the warm weather finally hits in Canada.

Today is also the very first International Day of Happiness. I really think this is the best idea I've heard in a very long time. Just knowing that it was Happy Day instantly put me in a better mood. I work in customer service and unfortunately most people didn't seem to get the happiness memo, but hopefully it will catch on a little more next year. I've been taking part in the early launch of a site called Happify and it ties so perfectly into this day. Their motto is "Bringing the Science of Happiness to Everyday Life". I really love this and hope that it gains a huge audience because it truly deserves it. I mean, who doesn't want to be happier? I know I can never get enough of it!

I was wearing:

Witchery Top
Zara Bag
H&M Shoes

Thanks so much for visiting!
