La Dolce Vita posted about the new Roberta Freymann by Olivia Palermo Collection of necklaces and I've been obsessed ever since. Olivia always has the most amazing 'statement' necklaces and she doesn't disappoint with these. This new collection consists of gorgeous necklaces made out of silk and glass beads. They're all named after Olivia's favourite neighbourhoods in cities throughout the world. My favourite is the blue, clear and white Tribeca necklace! I WANT!

I've been a horrible blogger lately - sorry! I've been so busy running around that I haven't been able to find time to actually sit down and do a proper blog post! I promise to do another reno/house purchases update soon - I just need to complete some of the finishing touches. Our new couches/chairs for the living room have been ordered and should be here in another 4-6 weeks (probably post-baby which is crazy). We decided to go with a Lee Industries slipcovered sofa and chairs in white. Aside from house stuff, I have picked up a few other things lately so here's the run down...
Tory Burch's Eddie flats are SO comfortable! I haven't bought these yet but I've ordered a yellow pair and they should arrive in the next week. I think they'll be perfect for running around after the bambino this summer. I love the camel colour as well but they only have purple and yellow at Holts...
I bought this Elizabeth and James ruched-sleeve blazer in white (the only photo I could find was in taupe) for my baby shower. I think it'll look great post-baby with jeans!

I bought the Free Flow tank from Anthropologie to wear post-baby. I debated between the beige and the navy for quite a while before picking up the beige. I love them both but decided I'd wear the beige more this Summer.

I absolutely fell in love with the Nanette Lepore Rogue Jacket when I saw it a few weeks ago. The navy/white/camel pinstripes are adorable but the puff sleeve detailing and floral lining really make this blazer. BTW - it's also one of Rachel Zoe's picks on Piperlime!

I also bought an amazing black LINE leather jacket that I'll post about soon. I can't find any photos online and haven't had a chance to take a photo of the jacket so I'll save it for another post.

That's it for now. I hope everyone had a great weekend! xoxo

I'm so sorry for my extended leave of absence! Things have been SO busy with all of the renos. I promise to post an updated Recent Purchases (home edition) soon and will post some before/after photos as well. In the meantime, I was browsing Anthropologie tonight and absolutely fell in love with all of their new necklaces. Here are a few of my favourites - they're all perfect accessories for Spring!

Double Toursade Necklace - I love the turquoise/mint colour of this necklace. It would look perfect with a fun Spring dress or dressed down with jeans and a t-shirt. And can you believe it's only $38 CDN?

Flicker, Flicker Necklace is the most expensive of the ones I've highlighted but it is definitely a great statement piece. Love it!
