I am really trying to make my closet more basic lately. It just makes the pieces in my closet more timeless and it’s easier to style with as well. I decided to syle this olive green oversized turtleneck that is a vintage find ( got to love those). I added my simple and favorite Levis mom jeans to keep the look casual and to stay comfortable. To bring the outfit all together, I added this camel colored suede jacket from H&M. I love how this jacket gives a clean finish to the whole look.
For shoes, I added these black closed-toe shoes that I bought from Call it Spring. Simple yet again clean to bring the casual look together. Then last but not least I added this cute silver detailed black hat from Forever 21.
There you have it chicas. A simple look with a cute oversized olive vintage knit sweater. You can really find some gems if you have the time and go to the right locations for vintage shopping. I hope you all enjoyed this Fridays look and I will see you next week Tuesday for another great post!
Sometimes it’s good just to go back to the basics. An LBD never goes wrong for any occasion. You can wear an LBD for work, a wedding, dinner with the family, out with the girls. Really it just comes down to the style of the dress and the accessories you decide to pair it with
I got this slip lace detailed dress from Marshalls. I love how simple the dress is but the lace detailing gives it a classy, delicate and sexy touch to the overall dress. I then decided to add my black closed toe shoes that I bought from Call it Spring. There is something about an all black look that really keeps the look sleek and classic so when you are looking at your photos ten years from now you can still say “I can wear that dress again”.
Now the accessories are where the dress really comes to life. The dress is like the crust, sauce, and cheese of the pizza and the accessories are the toppings. For this look, I added the Tom Ford cheetah sunglasses from Point of View Boutique. The pop of color and pattern really brings the whole look together. These glasses are definitely crowd stopper. If you really want to go all out or might be going out at night time when it cooler, add a duster jacket or motor jacket to keep the look classy yet add some color to this all black ensemble. I added my yellow suede motor jacket from Mink (why not? I feel so bad ass with this jacket). There’s something about a motor jacket that makes me feel like I should be on a motorcycle in style.
Can I just say that this book is for the books? I will be officially be adding a few of these photos to my polaroid collage. This superstar jacket is amazing for the spring and summer season for a great statement piece and layering item.
I got this suede Mink jacket from a vendor at one of my local flea markets, 613 Flea, in Ottawa and I will defiantly say this will not be the last that I go vintage hunting for statement pieces. The suede material makes this jacket to Lux and the color brings such a bright fun addition to any outfit.
I then pulled out my polka dot white and navy blue collared top that I bought from Marshalls a couple months ago. The best trick is to add pattern and color to any outfit when in doubt. In this case, I added the vibrant jacket to compliment this classic polka-dot blouse.
Lastly, I added my white denim cut off mini skirt to match the top and keep this look crisp and clean.
For shoes, I got these amazing kitten heel black suede shoes from Call it Spring. You can never go wrong with a simple classic black shoe. They are a staple that never gets out of style in your closet.
To finish this look, I added these amazing Tom Ford aviator glasses from Point of View Opticians. I love the look of the glasses as they are so clean and crisp though they bring a sense of 70’s to the whole look which I absolutely love.
Over the shoulder dresses and tops are everywhere making it a given that I and maybe every chicas will be wearing them all spring and summer long.
I was sent this dress by Pink Martini. Pink Martini is a Canadian clothing brand from Toronto that sells contemporary style clothing. I was told to choose an item from their website to try it out. I decided to choose this amazing waterfall off the shoulder dress.The dress hugs to your body at the bottom and has a flirty flowy feel with the top ruffles and the off the shoulder.
I then decided to pair the dress with these white and gold sandals that I bought from Aldos. I have had these sandals for a year now and they go with everything which I love. For the glasses, I teamed up with a local eyewear company called Point of View Opticians where they had so many great designers such as Jimmy Choo, Tom Ford and much more. I choose these classic Tom Ford Ombre effect Aviators. Tom Ford is probably one of my favorite designers for eyewear. He executes the shape of the eyewear so well allowing them to fit all different face types. These glasses literally slid on like a glove.
Floral is a given when it comes to spring and summer fashion. When in doubt you can honestly just wear a floral dress and you are ready for the catwalk.
This look I decided to choose this white cut out dress from Forever 21. I love the blue and pink flowers. This looks amazing aginst the white canvas. I also like the length as it is not too short and still gives a sexy feel with the backless feature and the cut outs.
I then decided to add my silver loafers from Just Fab. It brought an edgy feel to it ( you know how I like my edgy and girly/chic vibes). An alternative would be to add it with neutral gladiator sandals or Pink fushia heels that will match perfectly with the pink detailing on the dress. Of course with no surprise, I added the Call it Spring rose gold sunglasses.
You can easily wear this look for a picnic or while having a couple drinks on the patio with your friends.
This outfit is all about being fun, flirty and girly. I love lace because it gives a sense of elegance and grace to any outfit while bright vibrant colors give a sense of fun, flirtiness, and joy to the overall outfit.
I decided to start with the famous scallop lace 3/4 top from Marshalls. Can I just say the detailing on this top is phenomenal! It is so intricate and well designed. The top gives a garden tea party vibe to it which is perfect for day to day errands to a gathering with the girls on a Saturday morning over brunch a mimosas. I then brought this fun BCBG peach chiffon skirt that I bought a couple years ago. The pleating is definitely a style this spring and going into the summer. This is one of those it looks like a skirt but theiy are shorts type of shorts. Lastly, I added my Call it Spring Sunglasses (surprise?) and my gold and white sandals from Aldos that I bought a million years ago.
There you have it! You are ready to go to a garden party with the queen, really. What would you guys wear to a garden party?
Every woman/girl has a mellow sunflower spirit in them. I decided to show mine in the art of fashion. This sunflower outfit shows a fun care free woman finding herself in the flowers that surrounds her.
She wears an off the shoulder blue pinstripe top with puffy sleeves from Marshalls. She then wears a white denim skirt that is both fashionably chic and carefree with the ridged cut off denim detailing at the bottom of the skirt still giving that ‘carefree’ vibe. Shoes? This outfit has none, just the shoes you are born with. What better way to complete this hippy outfit with the natural touch of bare feet. However, a great alternative would be white gladiator sandals ( there are a few at Just Fab, Aldo and Call it Spring). I then added my staple rose gold sunglasses from Spring
There you have it! You have completed your flower child outfit. I really enjoy creating a story behind some of my looks. It just makes it that much more exciting when you wear an outfit. Remember to keep you sunflower child spirit burning.

Sometimes I will say a Sunday best outfit does make me feel like I am Audrey Hepburn. All I am missing is some tea, scones and some girlfriends to chat with on a lovely Sunday spring morning.
I decided that for this fun look I had to add this tulle skirt from Simons. The gliter skirt screams Spring. I then added this high neck black body suit from Zara along with another vintage piece from my mom’s closet, beige blazer. With the different textures, the chiffon sleeves and the soft silk like cotton for the rest of the bodysuit gives the outfit more dimension while complimenting the girly fun tulle skirt. I then added the cute clutch from Forever 21 to give this outfit a bit of spice. What better way to add spice to an outfit than with the color red.
For the shoes, I kept my staple Just Fab nude heels and added the Call it Spring rose gold sunglasses that plays as a nude in this outfit as the colors are either dark or bright and bold like the red satchel bag.
There you have it! Another great outfit brought to you by this chicas. You can wear this for tea with the girls, night out at a nice Parisian restaurant or to a theater show ( why not be the show as well 😉 ).
