Sunday Brunch

Forever 21 jacket, H&M shirt, vintage denim via Public Butter, thrifted bag and shoes, my boyfriends hat, H&M earrings

This is probably one of my favourite Spring outfits I’ve ever styled. It’s the perfect amount of layering for when it cools off in the evenings and is warm in the day. Looks I lean towards are basics paired with a pop, in this case the jacket and shoes. It’s nice to finally add some colour and texture to my outfits. The Winter just drags on and makes my personal style suffer because I can’t be bothered to change things up. I wish sometimes I was in a warmer climate like L.A. or something; I’m sure all of us Canadians do. This outfit pulls together some of my favourite pieces I own and trends. This bag for example is my obsession for the Summer and it was only $3.00 at Value Village. Some of my most treasured pieces are generally thrifted or vintage finds because they’re absolutely priceless. This Summer I can’t wait to wear more straw bags. I have a bunch I’ve thrifted that need to see the light! What are the trends that you can’t wait to wear this Summer?

My birthday is looming, yes I say looming because the years are flying by! I have a grey hair that won’t quit and some wrinkles of which I never believed would appear, but THEY DO/DID! Anyways, my birthday also reminds me that I get to spoil myself. Now that I’m an adult, I am allowed to spend my money the way I please. I think self love is super important so why not? I want to start a new tradition for myself of buying a piece of jewellery for myself each birthday. Jewellery is something I can collect and look at to remind me of the place I was in when I bought it, so I think this will be a special thing I do for myself. Agree?

There is nothing more comfortable (and stylish) to me than a good sneaker. I love that sneakers are a huge fashion trend that’s sticking around. I can remember when wearing sneakers with a dress or skirt was a MEGA fashion no no, but now it’s the s@#% (as long as it’s paired well of course). Every brand I click on these days while online “window shopping” has a ‘walking’, ‘lifestyle’, or ‘casual’ section because they know they have to cater to the stylish street wearability that is the sneaker trend. On my days off I like to kick it (get it) in sneakers most of the time because my feet are usually exhausted (server life). I can’t wait to get my feet into some of the sneakers I’ve been eyeing above this season. I love that brands are bringing back their classic styles with a twist. The platform trend has to be my favourite, mostly because I wear heels due to that fact that I didn’t win the lottery in terms of height, so the heeled sneaker has been quite a blessing. I think first on my list are the platform Keds canvas platform and the Reebok Classics. I’m really into those two styles at the moment and can see myself getting a lot of wear out of them.

How do you feel about sneakers and the fashion statement they’re making?

This Spring is COLD! Tis the season for an easy throw on jacket that is equally stylish and warm “ish”. The “teddy” coat is the coat of the season. I think it’s effortless and chic and adds that touch of personal style when you’re in a slump and stuck wearing basics ( am I only referring to myself here?
