Pretty Pairs: The Spring Underwear Guide under $100

Untitled-1
I am one of those people who makes sure to purchase new undergarments as often as possible. When I go to the mall, more often than not, I come home with new underwear or a bra. I feel like it is important to have fresh, matching bra and panty sets fitting to each season, as putting on something that makes you feel cute, pretty or sexy can really set your mood for the day.  I mean, no one feels hot in underwear with holes in it. Although I tend to stick to Aerie for many of my undergarments, (I love their #aeriereal campaign), a few of the prints and colours (#4)  in the pairs I have shown below have me needing to make a trip to the other locations. Here is a list of 8 pairs (some I have created, some come together) that I am loving for spring!

The Coastal Cafe Huevos Rancheros

1 copy
Ever since I was introduced to the Coastal Cafe in Halifax about 4 years ago by my boyfriends brother, I crave it on a constant basis. I love everything on their menu, but their huevos rancheros is my personal vice. Since moving to Toronto, I can’t satisfy my CC craving when it strikes, so I am left feeling empty inside (not exactly, but pretty close). The other day a craving arose while Matt (my boyfriends brother) and I were talking about how much we enjoyed The Coastal Cafe’s huevos rancheros.  My sister, the lovely little gem that she is, reminded me that I actually owned a cookbook that had that exact recipe in it. I was so overjoyed when I remembered that she was right that I decided to make the huevos the next morning. Naturally, Matt came over the next morning too. Although the exact recipe for the huevos  is only found in the Halifax Tastes cookbook,  here is a similar recipe for you to try out for yourself. And if that doesn’t do the trick you might just have to plan a trip to The Coastal Cafe.

Easter Pastels

I found this Elie Tahari dress a few months ago while aimlessly browsing the Saks outlet store. I hadn’t planned on purchasing anything that day, but as soon as I laid eyes it, I knew it had to be mine (it just looked so lonely hanging there by itself). The fabric is so luxe, and it is the most beautiful pastel blue colour I have ever seen. The green trim on the dress also adds such unexpected detail. I love the dress on its own, but since the weather was still chilly this weekend, I went with a crisp white button down that ended up looking preppy and prim for Easter weekend.
