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

I can’t even begin to tell you how viciously I was attacked by mosquitoes while trying to photograph this outfit. But I guess mosquitoes are the sign that summer is here to stay so that’s good I guess. If anyone knows of a good bug spray, shoot me a message. I’m not even kidding.

Today, I tried to mixed patterns in my outfit. Adventurous I know. My shirt is from my favorite store ever, Noul. They finally have an online store so you should all check it out. It’s fab. Back to the shirt. It’s cream with cool snakeskin sleeves. I then tucked it into a really comfy striped cotton skirt. For shoes, I went with my metallic T-strap sandals. I swear I overwear these sandals way too much but they go with absolutely everything.

Because there was so much cream and taupe in this outfit, I added a colorful statement necklace to balance everything out. I also carried this adorable clutch with leather accents. Clutches are so nice in the summer because they’re so tiny and lightweight. All I need is my wallet and lip balm y’know? And Afterbite too of course. Can’t forget that.

My mama commented that my outfit was rather fancy today. But I would have to disagree. I think the t-shirt dresses it down quite a bit and skirts are essential for summer okay? Skirts are not just reserved for dressier occasions. Got it?

Being a teenager living in the boring city of Edmonton, I rarely get the chance to dress up so sometimes it’s fun just to put on a fancy skirt and enjoy the sunny weather.

This skirt is from Bel and Beau, which is also a lovely blog run by the gorgeous Isobel. I chose the “Miss” Mini Skirt in the emerald color. It is made out of taffeta, resulting in a very gorgeous, voluminous silhouette. It is such a beautiful skirt and is available in both differing lengths and colors. On top, I wore one of my favorite blouses from Elizabeth and Clarke. It is a sleeveless style, making it comfortable for summer and also making it very easy to dress up or down. 

As for accessories, I kept it similar with a mint necklace that contrasted nicely with the emerald and black, a couple of bracelets, and of course my monogrammed clutch, I feel very southern with the preppy skirt and the monograms! For shoes, I wore my beloved Bloch flats. 

I feel like my sunglasses complete this dressed-up look perfectly! They are inspired by the iconic Prada sunglasses that are to die for! They have huge tortoiseshell round lenses with the focus being on the sides which have a gorgeous swirled design. 

I feel like a little kid playing dress-up. It’s a good day.

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.

Who says you can’t wear skirts on the coldest days of the year? This is the perfect winter skirt. It’s a red velvet skirt from Banggood and it’s been such a great addition to my closet. Most people would call me crazy for wearing a skirt in the middle of a Canadian winter but I just couldn’t resist wearing this skirt.

I feel like I was pretty sensible in the rest of my outfit. I paired it with thick fleece lined tights. Fun fact: I got these tights from Ardene and I know Ardene isn’t exactly known for good quality items but I couldn’t have been more impressed with these tights. They are so cozy and warm and the best part, they are five for 10 dollars. What?! Yes, you heard right. I also had a coupon for an extra 15% off so I got this pair for $1.70. How can you pass this up?

Anyways, back to the outfit. I wore a slouchy knit sweater on top from Billabong. I’m sure you’ve noticed but I wear this sweater with practically every outfit. It’s probably my most worn item.

As for shoes, I recently got these booties from Target. I’ve never really shopped at Target but I fell in love with these shoes and they were on clearance. Yes, I just can’t resist a good sale, it’s a problem.

As usual, I added a bunch of jewelry to spice up my outfit. Have I ever left the house without jewelry on? Nope, I don’t think so. I wore this gorgeous necklace from Presh by Nicole Apostoli. I will be doing a whole review on Presh later on, but for now, I just couldn’t resist including this necklace in this outfit. It is called the Fossel Pendant and I love how it ties together the whole outfit with it’s multi-metal duo chains. It’s stunning.

Last but not least, I added on a multitude of rings. What can I say? I like rings. My favorite is this talon-like claw ring from Loft 82- they changed their name to Noul… I don’t know how I feel about that. The chain ring is also from Noul and the cross is from Forever 21.

I like to think flannels are the best invention ever designed. I guess they’re not really inventions, but what I’m sure of is that they’re perfect in every way imaginable. And this flannel from Living Doll LA is no exception. I feel like this flannel was made for me. It combines the traditional comfort of a flannel but also adds a little extra girlyness to my style with the rhinestones on the tips of the collar and pockets. How adorable is that?! Plus the style is a bit more fitted so it can easily be dressed up a bit more than a regular oversized flannel. I also love the colours in this flannel. It is a plaid with red, blue and green so it’s a great festive piece for the holidays but is also easily transitioned into January, February, and March aka winter.

I opted to style this flannel in a more funky, quirky way. I tucked it into my leather skirt (which is surprisingly such a versatile piece by the way) and added a pair of grey tights for warmth because it’s clearly not the season for bare legs yet. To accessorize, I added a fun statement necklace that peaks out from my collar and thew on a few of my favourite rings. Then to also highlight a more edgy style, I added my new beanie from Zara (it’s actually from the kids section oops) and my spiky combat boots. I really like how this outfit turned out. It’s not my usual style but I like how comfy I was but also how fun this outfit is.

Be sure to check out Living Doll LA for more cute clothes (I know they have a cute more flannels in stock, just sayin’). I also did a post with a gorgeous red velvet dress so check that out as well! http://when-im-older.com/post/71646446049
