Concert tee series continues

image

Rocking another concert tee today. This one is from the Ryan Adams show at the Winspear Centre in Edmonton last week. It’s still warm enough to wear sandals, and I’m thrilled!

image

I love the style of this tee! I’m not hardcore enough to wear actual metal tees!

image

It’s cute with patterned pants too!

Sunglasses by Celine, jacket from J. Crew, necklace from Urban Outfitters, pants from Club Monaco, bag by Louis Vuitton, sandals by TKees.

Eye heart yeg!

Wearing a little civic pride with this cute little tank from Bamboo Ballroom in Edmonton. The Whyte Ave boutique has long been one of my favourite shop local destinations, and I love that they’re branching out with their own design.

Fall fashion + Julep nails

image

I’m back after a hard drive malfunction that caused me to lose almost two months of blog posts! In that time, fall has arrived, which means it’s fall gain fashion time! Plaids and ankle boots are IN. This cute little top from H&M is under $30, and it’s so versatile!

image

I picked up this cute Betsey Johnson tulle covered toque (beanie to you Americans) at Simons and it’s perfect for covering my dark roots!

image

Fall doesn’t just mean new clothes, it means new colours for your nails too! Red is always a classic, and it’s nice to go a little darker when the weather gets colder. I’ve got Claudette by Julep on order, and I know I’ll be wearing it a lot once it gets here! (Bonus, it’s on sale right now too!) What are YOUR favourite nail colours for fall?

Crop it, crop it crop it low girl

image

Crop top for a night out? Why not. Keeping with my rule that it has to be paired with a longer separate, and going all black this time.

image

This particular top has some killer back detail!

image

Midi type skirts have been a favourite of mine for years because I’m tall, but this year they’re finally trendy! And you can see why. They’re so much fun to dance in.

Skirt by Bettie Page, crop top from ShopNastyGal.com a few years back, Wayfarers by Ray Bans, bag by Louis Vuitton, sandals by TKees, black Puggle is my dear friend and a perfect accessory!

Jaws theme swimming

I went to a pool party this weekend, and kept it simple with the Hawaiian Sunset print from J. Crew. The long sleeves on the popover were perfect for when the temperature cooled down in the evening.

image

The little sunglasses necklace from Marc by Marc Jacobs was my favourite touch.

Hat, shorts and top from J. Crew, bikini is so old I couldn’t even begin to guess…., necklace Marc by Marc Jacobs, sandals by TKees, Ray Ban Wayfarers.

Bermuda shorts and tropical prints

image

Despite the title of this post, this is a perfect outfit for work in the summer. Most offices and work places will allow a 10 inch Bermuda short, and of course a classic black blazer.

image

Of course, not all workplaces may be so forgiving of a blouse with a print like this, but I’m lucky enough to work in a place that does! This is the “Vacationland” print blouse by J. Crew. And it’s almost enough to make me feel like I’m on vacay!

Short and sweet. Blouse, Bermuda shorts and crystal necklace from J. Crew, watch by Daniel Wellington, blazer by Blend, sandals by TKees, Wayfarers by Ray Bans, bag by Alexander Wang.

Playdate

image

A playsuit is my idea of a comfortable alternative to shorts and a tee shirt outfit for a casual night out. I wore this to a baseball game on Canada Day with a bunch of my coworkers.

image

It was hot and sunny out, so a hat and large sunglasses were required. These are the Frankie’s by Quay Eyewear.

image

This romper came with a ribbon tie, but I added my own belt for an extra pop.

Romper by Kensie, belt is vintage Moschino, sunglasses by Quay, sweater from Loft 82 in Edmonton, Sweet Nothings necklace by In God We Trust NYC, bag by Kate Spade, flip flops by TKees, sun hat from J. Crew.

A little bit of temporary patriotism!

With the girls from work.

I love this Lion King tank top from Hot Topic, but I wasn’t really sure it was something I could work into my day to day wardrobe. I guess I had forgotten the golden rule of the season, a statement necklace is the solution for everything!

image

I picked the J. Crew stone burst necklace, because the colours complement the shirt perfectly!

image

The black maxi skirt is dressier than leggings or jeans, and is lovely for lunch with friends or an afternoon walk. A denim jacket is a great third piece, and in particular I like the texture on the front of this J. Crew one.

image

How can you not love this top? I will say that it’s made from cheap fabric that’s prone to pilling, but I like that it was inexpensive because it’s not going to be a classic piece in my closet.

Maybelline Nail Tattoos

image

I came across these Maybelline Colorshow Nail Tattoos at the pharmacy the other day, and I figured I’d give them a try! They were easy to apply, and three days in they are holding up well.

image

This is “The Financial District”. I’m looking forward to trying the other patterns!

Play!

image

Playsuits are so trendy this year, but since it won’t really fit my work wardrobe, I didn’t want to spend a whole lot of money. I picked this one up at winners for less than $20.00.

I paired it with a sunhat and a nice leather bag to dress it up for a perfect weekend look!

image

My “Sweet Nothings” necklace by In God We Trust is just the right finishing touch.
