Two looks are better than One…

13 Jun

One

Two

top (le fou by Wilfred @ Aritzia)

silk pants and leggings (Wilfred @ Aritzia)

clutch and earrings (Forever21)

pearl necklace (my mum)

glitter pumps (Steve Madden)

ring (Chanel)

This pretty blush top makes it very easy to go from a  relaxed classy look to something a little more edgy with just a change of bottoms and accessories.  For a nice dinner date look, I paired it with some silk slacks and a classic strand of pearls.  To take the look to something more daring for cocktails and dancing, I switched out the pants for some leather leggings and replaced the pearls with feather earrings for a little bit of rock and roll.  Now that I have the outfits, I just need to make the plans!  Looking forward to the weekend already…

Happy Monday everyone!

Weekend Basics

10 Jun

I love dressing easy and comfortably during the weekends.  I like to choose pieces that go easily together and can be dressed up or down fairly quickly because I rarely plan my weekend activities ahead of time.  This bag is one of my favorites this season.  It holds everything I need  with ample space and the navy stripes set the tone for summer with a nautical feel.

Wedges are also great for the weekend and I can’t get enough of these Jeffrey Campbell ones!  They look good even with my chipped toe nail, hehe and also provide me a few extra inches without the extra pain that usually accompanies heels.

tank (Talula @ Aritzia)

shorts (Forever21)

bag (H&M)

wedges (Jeffrey Campbell)

After searching far and wide for a summer sweater I settled upon this basic black linen one from T. Babaton.  I love the lightness that comes with the linen, a perfect summer fabric.  And of course, bloomer shorts are just so precious that I had to add another pair to the collection!  I am looking forward to a nice, relaxing and fun filled weekend!

Happy Friday!

Lady Like

8 Jun

I love the soft lines and feminine details of this outfit.  This is what I would put together for an afternoon strolling through museums or a romantic Sunday brunch.  I like to mix up different textures (in this case…suede, lace, silk and leather) when wearing monochromatic or neutral colors.  I think it brings attention to small details and makes an otherwise plain outfit well…spectacular.

Originally, the photos above are what I had in mind for the outfit but on this particular day, I decided to dress it down a little bit for a laid back day of shopping with my sister.  I also wore my favorite Chambray shirt as a light jacket over this outfit but took it off for the pictures because it was getting quite warm out!  A big surprise around here.

handbag (Furla)

shoulder bag (Marc by Marc Jacobs)

suede pumps (Steve Madden)

leather strap wedges (Dolce Vita)

belt (Wilfred @ Aritzia)

sunglasses (Marc by Marc Jacobs)

I’m sure I’ll put all of these pieces into heavy rotation this summer.  I love versatile outfits!  Don’t you?

I don’t know if the flowers on this particular tank are dandelions or not but that’s what they remind me of.

Wanderer

1 Jun

I can’t wait for the weather to warm up a little more so I can wander around in this get up.  Didn’t think I would be a major fan of the midi skirts this season but I LOVE them.  This is one of the few I have gotten and I am so glad I gave them a chance.  It is light, comfy and makes me feel delightfully happy!

 

This sheer textured black tee and striped bandeau add elements that make this summer outfit more fun without taking focus from the skirt’s floral print.

Add a straw fedora and you are ready for a day at a nearby festival.

In an iPhone Instant

31 May

J got me an iPhone this past Sunday and I have been playing with it non stop! Of course I found some fun photo apps that I just HAD to try out and a WordPress app too. Here are some pics from yesterday’s evening stroll…
