Finally, we can see the light at the end of the cold, dark tunnel that we call winter here in Canada! After what feels like the longest winter EVER, this past Friday officially marked the first day of spring!
I do not know about you, but the freezing cold winter that we experienced this year really put damper on my mood, and my wardrobe! By the time that February rolled around, I felt like I was in a style rut that consisted of base layers, sweat pants and winter boots.
Since the days are lasting longer and the sun has finally made an appearance, I have felt inspired to kick my wardrobe back into high gear. Getting back into the groove of dressing well after such a slump can be a difficult task, so I have rounded up 3 outfits that are sure to boost your confidence and put a little spring in your step!
Outfit #1: Flower Power
If there is one thing that I love about spring, it has to be the all of the new life that blooms around us! From flowers to butterflies, there is nothing quite like the feeling of spring in the air. Why not celebrate that feeling everyday by incorporating blooms and butterflies into your wardrobe with a pair of printed shorts! There are so many great options in stores right now, but this pair from Joe Fresh especially caught my attention because of the longer length and flowy shape. When pairing a top and accessories with printed shorts, pull from colors that are in the print. The bright yellow top, reminiscent of the sun, will instantly brighten your mood. A mint clutch and statement necklace adds some interest and really ties the colors together. Top it off with a wide brimmed hat, and neutral sandals that are both stylish and comfortable!

Outfit #2: Pastel Weekend
During the spring and summer months one of my absolute favorite things to do is wake up early and head to the local market. The weekend is always a good excuse to dress casually, but causal does not have to be boring! A pair of pastel pink skinny jeans adds a light pop of color to the look and will put you in a loving and caring mood. Instead of a plain t-shirt, opt for something with unexpected detailing like a graphic print, or this one with a feminine scalloped trim. Finish the look off with a light cardigan, fun bejeweled flats, and an oversized tote to hold of your fresh spring produce.

Outfit #3: Spring Fling
Whether you are heading out on a date with your significant other or getting gussied up for girlâ€™s night out, a sundress is a sure-fire way to boost your mood and confidence. Pastel yellow looks amazing on every skin-tone and represents all things positive and cheerful, which is exactly how everyone wants to feel on a night out. A pretty pair of floral print kitten heels literally puts spring in your step, while a skinny belt helps create that feminine, hourglass shape. Finish the look off with a bright bag, drop earrings and vintage looking cat-eye sunnies and you will be ready to take on the town!
