Teddy Bear

Turning into a teddy bear seems to be the trend this season and I’m sooo not mad about that. I’m all about a fuzzy piece of clothing and always have been so when this trend started to come about I was extremely excited. It’s also the best trend ever for those of us that don’t like to get out of bed because I’m always soooo cozy in my outfit. I got this sweater at H&M in the Divided section quite recently and I really loved it because it’s the same style as a Patagonia sweater but half the price. I’ve yet to get a good teddy coat but I think that’s my next purchase while this trend is happening.

This outfit speaks to my soul. Full of earth tones and 70’s rocker vibes. I always think I was born in the wrong decade but I know everything is meant to be, and hey maybe I was alive in a past life but died or something. WHO KNOWS! haha.

This outfit is something I would wear while transitioning from Spring to Summer. The days are pretty hot but the evenings cool off and a light jacket is needed most of the time. One of my fave things to buy on vintage shopping trips are oversized blazers which is how I got my hands on this baby. It’s really thin and feels like linen but I know it’s not. I’m not sure the fabric because there aren’t any tags. It was around $8 and I just love this fit. You’ll also catch me wearing this with denim cut offs and a band tee all summer since it’s light enough to throw in my bag until dusk when I need it.

If you know me you know all I wear is denim. It’s basically my second layer of skin, although unhealthy denim could be pyjamas for me.Because I wear denim everyday, I like to fancy it up here a there so topping it off with some silk and an outrageous pair of
Jackie O inspired sunnies helps my denim life from feeling stale. I don’t gravitate to dresses or skirts very often, I just don’t feel like I can be myself and makes getting dressed for special events that much more special. I have loads of denim: ripped, skinny, light wash, white, snakeskin etc and yet I never tried the “jegging” style. Joe Fresh makes jeggings every year. They aren’t your typical jegging where it’s a legging painted to look like denim, it’s denim with a wholeeee lot of stretch. I could do the splits in these pants if I wanted to, I’ve also taken a nap in them once or twice (accidentally of course). If you don’t love denim because you find it’s uncomfortable I highly suggest popping into Joe Fresh and trying out their jegging styles-even Thanksgiving dinner is no match for these pants!

Lace Ups and Lace

lace-ups-and-lace-3DIY Shirt, LaSenza Lingerie Lace Bodysuit, Aritzia Skirt, Public Desire (Similar) Shoes

These shirts are everywhere since Kendall Jenner first rocked it on a shopping trip in LA. Though that girl can get away with the deep v-neck cut she had going on and a very nearly-not-there lace bralette; IRL we can’t exactly do that. I got this shirt at Common Sort-my second home- for $8 and gave it a quick chop to recreate the look. I’m not about spending money on crazy trends that come and go quickly as I’ve mentioned a million times over. Even if I became a billionaire tomorrow I don’t think I would spend more than you should on “quick trends”.  Splurging on classic pieces you know will be versatile and long-lasting is where you should invest money in your wardrobe, like this Aritzia Pencil skirt. A tad pricey but this double slit linen pencil skirt has a little extra something going for it style-wise, is actually super comfortable, and a must-have in every woman’s closet. A pencil skirt is one of the easiest pieces you can rock from day-to-night. Work to play, switching up your shoes and your top, a pencil skirt is always a sexy option if it’s well tailored and you feel sexy in it. Comfort is key.
