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?

Classic Stripes and a "Pop" of Red

Classic Stripes and a "Pop" of Red outfit

Classic stripes are a trend that will never go out of style.

I have been loving stripes lately, but instead of colourful stripes, today I’m wearing classic stripes. Here I've paired a classic navy and white striped sweater with a jean shirt, red pants and a fun novelty bag. I added these heels since the laces look just like the stripes. This makes a fun yet, classic outfit. My cure for my allergies this week is to stay indoors with the A/C on recirculate. This makes it much cooler inside hence my choice of layers for today’s outfit. Also, I'm not leaving the house, but I added this bag for an extra “Pop!” in these photos. What do you think of this outfit? Do you love classic stripes or do you prefer colourful stripes? Are you a fan of novelty bags?

What to Wear for Mother's Day Brunch

Mother's Day Outfit

Here are a few outfit ideas to wear for Mother’s Day brunch.

Mother’s Day is this Sunday and although my mom passed in 2005, my husband and I celebrate as many families do, by taking his mother out to brunch. When choosing what to wear I take into consideration three things. My relatives tastes, the weather, and the venue where brunch will be held. I normally choose to wear neutrals as my husband’s family is more on the conservative side. This year I’m wearing my ruffle skirt since the venue is semi dressy, and I’m pairing it with a white short sleeved top under a beige cardigan since there is still a bit of chill in the air. The photo above shows the outfit I will be wearing this year, and following are some more outfit ideas for Mother’s Day brunch. Are you taking your mother to brunch this year? If so have you already planned out what you are wearing?

Rainbow Stripes

Rainbow Stripes Outfit

A rainbow striped dress is the perfect piece to bring some cheer into the week.

Allergies have gotten the best of me this past week though I did manage to take a few outfit photos since I had some events to attend. This rainbow striped dress I found in a vintage shop a several years ago. I loved it, but at that time thought it was a bit on the bright side. Now that bright stripes are “in” I pulled it out from the depths of my hoarding trenches and paired it with a white cardigan and yellow flatforms. The white helps off set the brightness of the stripes at bit. What do you think of this outfit? Do you like wearing bright colours? Would you wear rainbow stripes?
