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?
In the past few weeks I think I’ve bought 5 tops with ruffles, no joke. Two sweaters, this tee, and a tank; Ok so four, excessive?
I don’t consider myself very “girly” in terms of how I dress, yet I’ve found myself leaning towards ruffles and “girlier” garments lately when I’ve been out shopping. The thing is they’re more statement ruffles than they are silly, frilly, cutesy etc etc. I’m into statement pieces where the rest of my outfit can be relaxed, like this t-shirt with dramatic sleeves paired with this $20 pair of vintage Lee light wash denim that has curious paint stains in various spots (like the turquoise one on the inside of my pant leg..). This top makes me want to flamenco dance and if you know me you know that dancing is never to far away from happening. The subtle statement game is where I’m at lately because I truly loooove to be comfortable and this t-shirt is just that. I have been on the hunt for a few more statement tops I can bust out this fall before I have to throw a giant parka on top of it. I also just don’t have many nice tops, so my goals is to get back into fun outfits like I used to and not be afraid to wear a top with gigantic ruffled sleeves.
