Little Spring Dress.

One of my favourite parts about Spring is getting to wear dresses more often! I have been a fan of d.RA for such a long time (see some of my other d.RA looks here & here), and they have the most beautiful collection of Spring ready dresses this season.

These are two of my absolute favourite dresses from the collection (along with this gorgeous white maxi that I toted along to Mexico) I always fall for white dresses (they are so romantic) and the bright yellow floral maxi is perfectly flowy and cute, great for a day at the beach or for evening with a leather jacket & heels.

I already have my eye on a few other pieces, including this amazing top & skirt combo that they've released this season in chambray (I lived in the white version last year)

I always love discovering a brand that makes effortlessly chic pieces that are super easy to wear and fun to style. d.RA has offered an amazing shopping code giving you 35% off site wide when you use AFLAFAVES at checkout...offer runs until May 15 so get your shop on!

For me, getting dressed should be fun, and for that to be your experience, it is all about finding the right pieces. I have been a fan of Beginning Boutique for ages now, and I chose to highlight three of their Spring pieces because they all are easy to wear & fun to style.

I don't usually go for romper's, but I love this one because the back detail is so pretty! Of course I am a huge fan of white paired with white looks, and can't get enough lace,especially during the Spring/Summer months, so this skirt was a must, and I have been drawn towards off the shoulder dresses lately so of course this one caught my eye, and I loved dressing it up with the strappy sandals & fun printed jacket.

Hair by Sarah Braim at The House of Blond, Styled with XO Styling Iron

I absolutely love having long hair, but using heating tools, traveling and swimming in the ocean & pools, it truly takes it's toll. I also colour my hair, so it is super important to me to take care of my locks with regular masking, but most importantly, to visit a stylist that truly understands the importance of hair health.

I was so excited to meet Sarah Braim, owner of The House of Blond (who also did my hair for this shoot)she has taught me so much about how to truly care for my hair, and is the Queen when it comes to colouring! She changed my world and because I do get so many questions from my readers about where I get my hair done, I wanted to highlight Sarah and share my experience at The House of Blond with you.

I am all about keeping my look as natural as possible, and Sarah definitely understands that. She keeps my blonde highlights looking healthy and not fried (which has happened to me, I have had crazy split ends and frizzing from dying my hair before, and this is not normal! If this is happening to you, definitely change stylists) and always does a deep conditioning and gloss on my hair every time I visit her for highlights, putting back some of the nutrients it needs after the dying process.

My hair has come so far from when I began working with Sarah, and I can keep it long and continue to use heating tools and dying my hair because she makes sure not to overdue the processing. It has that perfect sun-kissed look without the damage that so often comes along with dying.

Sarah is also so amazing at styling...I feel like a movie star whenever I leave her salon, she creates the perfect soft, beachy waves with the XO Styling Iron (she is also killer with braiding and up-do's, definitely worth a visit if you have a special event coming up) and spending time in her beautiful salon is such a treat, it has a huge window wall that lets in beautiful, natural light (which is great to be able to see your colour right away too)and she spoils her clients with delicious latte's and often time little is the best!

You can book with Sarah online here at The House of Blond.
