Shimmery Sparrows


Looking for the perfect place to spend Saturday evenings? Look no further than one of the great restaurants in Yaletown! Because that's what we sure did when we were invited to a birthday celebration that soon turned into a surprise marriage proposal! As I am in the same stage of my life as the newly engaged birthday girl, I was overwhelmed with joy for her.

I knew I wanted to wear some sparkle for this occasion and this skirt was just perfect thing.  I'm also in love with mixing prints and overall I was very pleased with this outfit! As to not overwhelm the whole look, I kept the accessories neutral!


Top: Zara
Necklace: Vintage
Bag: Loeffler Randall
Shoes: Stella McCartney

Your skirt is so impressive, Mina! I just love all of the colours, it reminds me of bright, joyful birthday wrapping :) The neutrals you've paired it with are just perfect, and I'm in love with the bird print on your skirt. Too cute! It was wonderful to be able to meet you in person yesterday. What a shame you won't be able to join in at our next monthly meet-up, but I'm sure you'll be having so much fun in Japan that you won't even miss us :)
xox,
