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

So, I’ve come to the conclusion that I am destined to be a cowboy. And what better way to prove that than wear my cowboy hat everywhere I go?

I finally found a pair of overalls yesterday that I don’t totally hate. These ones are from American Eagle and are made out of a softer denim, more of a chambray material so they’re not stiff and blocky. They even have a drawstring waist so you can cinch them in. I feel like they are a much more flattering version of traditional overalls. For my top, I tucked in this shirt from Club Monaco. I’ve been drawn to stripes lately and I love the classic navy and white color nautical-theme of this shirt. 

For shoes, I chose these ones from Call It Spring. I definitely don’t need any more booties, but these were on sale for only $12… so how could I pass them up? I feel like these are the perfect summer booties with the cutouts and buckles on the side. They’re awesome for pairing with shorts and dresses. 

And you might be very surprised to discover that I am wearing a new watch today. You might have gotten used to my Marc Jacobs watch but I recently added a new watch to my collection. This one is from Fossil and I was immediately drawn to the grey leather strap. I love the look of gold and grey together. Isn’t it so pretty? For the rest of my jewelry, I wore a navy rope bracelet and some layered necklaces.

Oh, and my cowboy hat is from Lammle’s. I picked it up from the Stampede when I was in Calgary. How cute is it? The cowboy life is the life for me. Can cowboy hats become trendy here in Edmonton so I can wear mine without getting weird looks? Perf.

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.

It’s been a while since I added a new watch to my collection. But this is the perfect watch to round them out. I have been wanting a watch like this for as long as I can remember. However, my search for one was always unsuccessful. I know they sold a similar one at Urban Outfitters a while back, but it is long gone by now. So, when I came across this one at Banggood, I was ecstatic. I was even more excited when I saw the price. Umm hello. How could I say no? Obviously, this watch is not the best quality. It’s simply costume jewelry. I have a couple of nice watches (like my baby) so I wasn’t really concerned about the quality. I wasn’t looking for the best watch, I was looking for the cutest design which this watch hit the mark on. 

It is a black leather band with a gold face. I love the contrast with the black and gold. I usually reach for silver but this one is a nice change. My favorite part about this watch is, of course, the face. I think the world map gives it such a unique look, I love it!

So, I finally did it. Yep, I bought a Marc Jacobs watch. For those of you who have been following me for quite some time now know how obsessed I am with Marc Jacobs. He is my brother from another mother basically.

But yes, I may have splurged a bit on this watch, but I have wanted it for so long and it’s such a classic style. I hope I will be wearing this for years to come. It is the Marc by Marc Jacobs Amy 36MM in Silver. It has a white face with silver hands. I was kind of against a white face to begin with. But I figured it would be the best choice for me, as I find black faces tend to look too manly and a silver face wouldn’t be enough contrast. It has numbers at 12, 3, 6, and 9 and then pave stones at the other time intervals. It also has a Sapphire Crystal face which is so necessary as it’s scratch resistant.  It is a fairly simple watch; no added bling or functions. It just has ‘Marc by Marc Jacobs’ etched around the face. I wanted a watch that I could wear on an everyday basis but one that could also function as a more dressy watch if I needed. 

I think this watch is absolutely perfect for me and I hope you think so too!

Style: Amy 36MM

Price: $215

Winter’s coming. I can’t say I’m excited about it, but I’m definitely excited to wear this jacket. This jacket is from a cute boutique called Amies La Vie and it practically screams Christmas. I don’t own many red items but I love how this one pops against the cold white snow. This jacket is a more edgy style with gunmetal studs lining the lapels but the cropped, fitted style makes it a bit more glam and girly! From the distance, this jacket has almost a leather look to it, but it is actually a soft rayon/polyester blend. 

I tried to incorporate both the grunge and glam into my outfit with my favorite Beatles tee, grey denim, and black booties that also have studs on the heel. For accessories, I wanted to keep them quite simple and let the jacket do all the talking. I added my new Marc Jacobs watch and a cute tassel bracelet from Kitsch. 

Amies La Vie has been getting in more and more cute pieces for the winter so go check them out!
