Crochet and Animal Print

Mixing a crochet knit with an animal print creates a fun fashion statement.

The crochet trend is one element from the 70's that I love. Today I’m wearing this long sleeved crochet top that I've had for years. I sometimes wear it as a beach cover up, but today I paired it with a brown tank top and an animal print skirt. The mix of these two trends creates a fun, subtle look. I added these copper-y, gold tie front sandals and a small leather tooled bag to complete this outfit. What do you think of this mix of elements? Is it something you would wear? Do you like the crochet knit trend this season?

Spanish Influenced Stripes and Ruffles

Spanish Influenced Stripes and Ruffles Outfit

Ruffles and stripes are two of my favourite design elements in clothing.

If I could I would wear ruffled everything everyday (I'm still craving a pair of Isa Arfen ruffled pants!) But this double ruffled outfit satisfies my craving, for now. This top not only has ruffled sleeves but also wide bold stripes which gives it a certain Spanish look that I love. When paired with a beige ruffled skirt and matching tie sandals, it creates a fun statement. I think the updo also adds to the Spanish vibe. What do you think of this outfit? Would you wear double ruffles? Do you like the Spanish influenced designs that were on the runways for Spring?

Puff Sleeves and Denim Joggers

A puff sleeved top and denim joggers make the perfect errand running outfit.

When the jogger trend was in full force I never jumped on board. I loved the way they looked on others but couldn’t find a pair that looked decent on me. Now that they are “out” I found this pair of lightweight denim joggers that I love. They are so comfortable and soft, and when paired with a belted puff sleeve top make a fun errand running outfit. What do you think of this look? Did you like joggers when they were in? Would you wear them now?

Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue

Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue Outfit

Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue are perfectly paired in this semi-dressy outfit.

When Pantone released these two colours as picks for Spring this year I was more than excited. My favourite colour is pink, in any shade, and when this light pale pink is paired with this beautiful shade of blue I love it even more. Today I’m wearing an outfit that I put together for a function I’ll be attending this coming weekend. The feather bag gives this outfit an extra something even though it may be a little over the top. What do you think of this look? Is it something you would wear? Do you like these Pantone colours paired together?
