Joe Fresh

There’s no place like home

Joe Fresh denim shirt and jeans, Nine West shoe, Zara jacket

There’s no better outfit than the Canadian tuxedo for Fall. It’s chic and super warm since you’re rocking a thick denim. On top I threw on my trusty leather jacket for some edge, more texture and honestly more warmth. For this outfit I wanted the shoes to speak for themselves. They’re giving me serious life with the Dorothy vibes. The Wizard of Oz was my number one movie growing up as a kid. My mother tells me she put it on at least once a day. My boyfriend recently said I don’t know how people can watch the same movie over and over, and I’m one of those people; I blame my mom haha. I saw these shoes at Winners and passed on them until two weeks later I couldn’t stop thinking about them and finally bought them and I ain’t mad!

LBD

Joe Fresh Dress, Yoki Loafers, Rayban Sunglasses 

Love me an LBD. This one I don’t know why but I hardly have worn it since I bought it three years ago. I’ve mentioned before I have trouble wearing dresses. I always feel over done and I really don’t know why. I wore dresses as a child a lot. This dress is really cute and I can’t believe Joe Fresh produced it. It’s hard to get all the details of a black dress on camera, it is silk, with two slits on the side up to the knee area. It cinches at the waist which is flattering and gives you some shape or you’d look like a sack. The neck detail is also really cool, I wish I had gotten a closer photo for you. This dress is super effortless chic and perfectly light and breezy on a hot summer’s day like this day in particular. I just threw on some loafers, black sunnies and a black backpack (not pictured as it was stuffed with Value Village finds). 

Nautical StripesΒ

Something about navy and white striped anything that gives you a nautical feel. I really like pairing something like this was deep cherry red pop of accesories or nails and keep everything else super neutral. I’ve had these shorts for a few years so unfortunately you can no longer find them at joe. Though I wish they would re-do this design because they’re so comfortable and I wish I had bought more. They’re we’re only $39 and they’re silk, like hello! I also wish I had bought the matching top but you live and you learn right! I found this top at Value Village and instantly wanted to pair it  with these shorts. So, who has a boat I can hop aboard?

 Most days you’ll find me in some variation of a jeans and t-shirt combo. I’m all about being comfortable. I remember I used to dress in ways that I thought was on trend, and it may have been, but I just never felt comfortable. I remember putting outfits together that I knew I wouldn’t wear but would photograph for my blog because it was spread across magazines and was the “trend at the time”. Meanwhile after shooting pictures I would change back into jeans and t-shirt. That has become such a go-to for me that it’s comical when I put a dress on I feel extremely over-done. 

Jeans and a t-shirt is how I feel my most comfortable and I like to spice it up with accessories. A statement jacket, interesting shoes, dramatic sunglasses, unique bag and the list does on.
