Summer is coming close to an end, at least that’s what it feels like here in Calgary. Despite this, i’m not quite ready to give up all of my favourite summer styles just yet. Lately i’ve been making an effort to wear as many dresses as possible to make the most of the remaining warm days. This dress by Free People is one of my favourites. I love the way it flows and the embroidery is adorable. To accessorize this look I added one of my favourite Goorin Brothers hats. I havent worn it in a while so I figured it was about time I dusted it off! I also added one of my favourite quartz Shesso necklaces and a pair of black leather booties!
I recently went through my closet to see if I could take some of my old favourite items and make a fresh new look with them. I havent paired this vest with a dress yet so I figured it was about time that I did. This white dress from Urban Outfitters Urban Renewal line is one of my favourites and it turned out to be the perfect dress for this look! I normally wear it on it’s own or with a jacket but I love the way it looks with this vest. Sometimes you just need to go through your closet and look for different ways to wear older items. This can give new life to old favourites. This is a good idea especially if you are on a budget and can’t add new pieces to your wardrobe.
For this look I want to concentrate mainly on the accessories. I love to layer bangles and bracelets and i’ve finally added a few substantial pieces to my collection! I love the way the different colours of the bracelets compliment each other. As for the necklace, I love how big and bold it is. It really stands out, especially when worn with a darker coloured shirt.
The necklace and bracelets are from a company called Color by Amber. If you’ve never heard of them I suggest you do yourself a favour and check them out! The pieces are made from 40% recycled material in an eco friendly facility. If that isn’t awesome enough, they also give 10% of each sale from the Full Circle line back to help Artisans build up their communities, as well as create businesses for themselves and their families. It’s nice to find a company that is making a difference in the world. This way you can look good and feel good about what you are wearing!
Lately i’ve been really into the Denim & Supply line by Ralph Lauren. They’ve got a lot of really cool pieces, the graphic tees in particular. I’m a big fan of shirts that have a vintage feel to them, so naturally I was drawn to this muscle tank. It’s hands down my favourite top at the moment, i’m finding it hard not to wear it every day! This look or something similar, is what you’ll find me wearing any time during the week. Don’t get me wrong, I do love to dress up sometimes but this is my go to style for everyday.
This past weekend I took a trip out to Medicine Hat with Tyrell to visit family. While we were there we did a little bit of exploring and shot some photos. This look is nice and simple, and perfect for warm summer weather. Dresses make choosing an outfit so easy and I love that. I especially love this adorable dress by Ralph Lauren. The fit is perfect and the floral pattern is fresh and summery! To accessorize this look, I chose one of my favourite black brixton hats and a pair of black Steve Madden booties.
You probably didn’t know this but I have terrible vision. It’s pretty bad, I wear contacts almost everyday. I recently received a new pair of prescription spectacles from TIJN eyewear and I think they’re awesome! I’m pretty sure that they are a similar size to the glasses I had when I was 13 and i’m sure I hated them at the time. I’m glad that it’s fashionable to wear glasses in this day and age because optically challenged people like myself would like to give the contacts a break every now and then.
Oh and this top by Camp Collection is pretty awesome too. I was not in fact alive in 75 but I bet it was great!
Two of my all time favourite items of clothing include band shirts and cardigans. My closet is overflowing with a wide variety of both of these. This cardigan by Lovestitch is one of my all time favourites, I love the fringe on the bottom and it has a really flattering fit. I think I have a serious addiction to off-white cardigans, my closet is full of them! For the rest of the look I chose this awesome tank top. It’s one of my new favourites, I love The Doors and Jim Morrison so it was an easy choice.
