When I'm older...


i'll wear whatever i want. ................................................. “I’ve apparently been the victim of growing up, which apparently happens to all of us at one point or another. It’s been going on for quite some time now, without me knowing it. I’ve found that growing up can mean a lot of things. For me, it doesn’t mean I should become somebody completely new and stop loving the things I used to love. It means I’ve just added more things to my list.” ................................................ Jeremiah 29:11

This summer, I’ve been shying away from color. But sometimes, I just want to go back to my roots and step out in an outfit that is reminiscent of a rainbow. Because who doesn’t want to be a rainbow?

This dress is from a cute boutique called the Happy Wardrobe and it is a summer staple. It is such a light material so it’s absolutely perfect for the hottest of summer days. It has cute three quarter length sleeves with a accompanying navy belt. I love the coral color and print of this dress. Coral is the mandatory summer color. 

For jewelry, I went along with the colorful theme. The cuff is also from The Happy Wardrobe. It goes great with the dress with the blue underlay and the gold metal. My necklace from the Hawthorne Collection also compliments the colors in the dress perfectly. As for shoes and purse, I think these two are pretty self-explanatory. I feel like I have been wearing this combination every single day this summer. But don’t change something that isn’t broken right? I think that rule applies to fashion.

I have been on the hunt for a leather vest for quite some time now. After seeing this one at Noul, I knew I needed one in my closet right away, but I was not prepared for the $130 price tag so it became my mission to find one for cheaper. I am sad to admit that my mission was not successful. Every leather vest I found was nowhere near as nice as this Noul one so my heart told me to just splurge and buy it. Yolo right? Uh huh. So now, here it sits in my closet. I’m so glad I decided to buy it. It’s such a staple piece and I believe I’ll be wearing it for many seasons to come. Today, I paired it with one of my favourite dresses: this dropped waist dress from Forever 21. I love the girly and edgy silhouettes paired together. I feel like that is where my style is evolving to. 

As always, I spiced my outfit up with my accessories. I am absolutely obsessed with this necklace. I picked it up from Topshop when I was in Calgary on my road trip. Who knew Chinook Centre had a Topshop? It was so beautiful. If you know me, you know I don’t like to buy jewelry anymore because of the abundance of it sitting in my room. But lately, I’ve been noticing my ratio of gold to silver necklace is way off, so I decided I needed this necklace in my life. It’s mainly silver with gold accents so it allows me to effortlessly mixed metals in my outfit. For bracelets today, I kept it simple with this Urban Outfitters bracelet that I seem to be wearing everyday. My brother even noticed as he took these pictures, telling me he’s already taken shots of this bracelet countless times; that sass. I wore my Marc Jacobs watch like always but watch out! (no pun intended) I’ve recently added a new watch to my collection so I’m sure you’ll be seeing that one lots instead now!

When I was putting together this outfit, I came to a roadblock when it was time to pick out shoes. Originally, I though the Steve Madden Nonstop Booties would have looked perfect with this look, but alas, I don’t own those shoes. I’ve heard they are super unpractical and uncomfortable anyways so I don’t know if they’ll ever have a place in my closet. But then I remembered these shoes. I picked these up from The Bay a month ago and I’ve only worn them once. I completely forgot I owned them. However, I really like how they look with this outfit! And can we just talk about my toes for a second? I went for my first pedicure yesterday and it was magical. I got gel polish so hopefully my toes will look this beautiful for the rest of the summer. Speaking of summer, I only have a month and a half of it left. UGH.

I have been on the search for the perfect chambray dress for as long as I can remember. Six year old me was probably looking for one. Let’s be honest, I was one stylish toddler. Originally I wanted a denim shirt dress with a collar and buttons and everything (which I’m still on the hunt for), but I came across this one at H&M and it was love at first sight. It’s part of the Eco Conscious collection so it’s made out of a really cool material called lyocell; it’s like denim but better. It’s a pretty simple silhouette with cute added details like pockets and an exposed gold zipper on the back. Best part? I got this dress on sale for a decent 20 bucks, far from it’s regular price of $50. Good on ya H&M!

I paired this dress with a lace cardigan. I wear this so much in the summer because it’s so lightweight and instantly dresses up any outfit. For shoes, I chose these snakeskin sandals that I’ve been dying to pull out after this long horrible winter. I always pair this Celine-lookalike purse with the sandals because I think they compliment each other perfectly. For jewelry, I wore all gold pieces, which I dot usually do. I just like silver jewelry better. However the gold fits in much better with the warmer shades. I love the look of a gold chain choker with a higher neckline. For bracelets, I’m wearing a cool fish cuff with my J.Crew bracelets that even though I love, I never seem to wear. 

On a finishing note, let’s applaud my mama’s flowers. Her lilacs are in bloom and I wish you all could smell them through the screen. Their scent is filling up my room right now. I just love summer.

I went to the Farmer’s Market downtown today and it was so cute! I love doing more local things in Edmonton and the market was tons of fun. (And really yummy too oh my)

I am obsessed with this dress. I have been searching for a really simple t shirt dress and I love the look of dropped hems so when I saw this dress at my Forever 21, I was so excited! I hate shopping at Forever 21. It’s just so unorganized and overwhelming so I was really surprised that I actually found something! Believe it or not, my sheer kimono is also from Forever 21. I haven’t bought anything from Forever 21 in so long, so that fact that I’m wearing it head to toe is quite surprising.

My sneakers added the perfect casual vibe to this outfit. Sneakers are an absolute must for me in the summer, but you definitely won’t see me sporing athletic-looking ones. These ones are so cute with the leather shell! For jewelry, I’m wearing a chunky layered necklace from Urban Outfitters. On my wrist, I have my regular Marc Jacobs watch and Pandora bracelet plus a new addition! I got this simple string bracelet at the Fault in Our Stars preshow! How cute is it?! And how cute was that movie?! Oh my Augustus.

I can’t believe that just a couple of years ago, I was too scared to wear maxi skirts out of the house. They weren’t nearly as popular and little sixteen year old me was not daring enough to start the trend. Now, fast forward almost three years later and they have become my summer staple. This one, from Forever 21, is so light and breezy and matches everything in my closet. It’s such a basic. 

I paired it with this silky top from American Eagle. I love the crochet detailing on the sleeves. It gives it such a pretty boho look. My shoes doubled as a pop of color in this outfit with their fun turquoise hue. 

For jewelry, I wore a Jewelmint necklace that features a silver tassel pendant. I have been so obsessed with this necklace lately. It seems to call to me every time I’ve been deciding what necklace to wear. I apologize to my other necklaces for playing favorites. For my arm de la jour (that’s french for of the day btw), I wore my Marc Jacobs Amy watch, and a couple of cool bracelets from Urban Outfitters including this funky beaded one that I recently got on sale for only three dollars. Everyone knows I love a good deal.

Before you notice how white my legs are, let’s just appreciate that I can finally wear skirts now without freezing. But yes, I am working on getting my legs to a normal color. (Hello self-tanning). 

This outfit basically revolves all around Oakley. How cute does he look today? Very cute. I’m wearing a Roxy lace jacket (buy here) from Mad Monkey Clothing. Underneath, I wore a plain olive green crop top from American Eagle, paired with a black high low skirt from Forever 21. As for shoes, they are really comfy flats from Reneu. My outfit was pretty simple so I went a bit overboard on the jewelry. My necklaces are from my grandma. When she passed away when I was six, she left me a large part of her jewelry collection. I was thinking about it today and I think that’s what made me so obsessed with jewelry. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I rarely leave the house without jewelry and I think receiving her jewelry at such a young age has a lot to do with that. My rings are all from Noul and Oak and Fort. As for arm candy, my watch is the Marc by Marc Jacobs Amy watch and I’m obviously wearing my Pandora bracelet (when am I not?). My earrings are from Foxy which are sold at Shopper’s Drug Mart. All the Foxy Jewelry is 60% off at Shoppers right now, so you should probably stop by.

So yes, that’s my outfit for today. Let’s give the weather a round of applause for cooperating today.

I know this scenery doesn’t look exactly Spring-y, but after the longest Winter ever, this is as Spring as it’s going to get! The high was +7 degrees (Celsius obvs.) so I couldn’t wait to bring out my fun spring clothes! No more dark colors for me! 

These pants are the epitome of Spring. They are such a fun floral print and they make me so happy! I paired them with one of my favorite tops from Vero Moda with a lace neckline and a flowy chiffon fabric. It was still a bit chilly so I added a long blue cardigan and wore some grey flats. I am so excited to start wearing flats again! I’ve been a bit bored with booties.

I kept my accessories very Spring-like with this bangle from Accessory  Mercado. It brings out the colors in the pants with the fun green and turquoise design. For earrings, I wore these daisy studs from Majestical Jewelry. What is Spring without florals?
