Me in Monochrome

Yet again, black and white. At least the rain stopped for long enough to pop out and take some pictures! And the sun peeked out just long enough to wear these amazing sunglasses. So French no?

I’m so excited for fall. I’m getting out the booties and incorporating them whenever I can. This is a new Dolce Vita pair with nice silver accents on the toe and heel. At a first glance this is a cool pair of animal print coated jeans. Guess what? Flip them inside out and they’re coated black jeans. Great for travelling! Bluelab does a whole line of reversible jeans. Check them out! BTW… I can’t wait to get my bangs trimmed!

All In the Details

All In the Details

I found this amazing top in my new favourite place to shop… the Nordstrom Savvy Department of course! I got so many complements on it last night! The detail of the design on the front is the first eye-catching piece, and then you get to see the back which has adorable pleats to add even more interest. I paired it with black jeans figuring a coloured pair would detract from the design, chunky heeled sandals, and some cool but not overpowering jewellery.

We went to dinner at a cool hip restaurant not far from us and while checking in on Facebook I realized that my friends’ band was playing right down the road. The timing was perfect so we went to check it out. They’re a surf band from New Jersey and they’re so much fun. It’s feel good music that makes you think you’re sitting on a beach even if it’s the middle of February. You should check them out! You can find them here… http://thebrigantines.com/#b11/wordpress

A Glimmer of Light

A Glimmer of Light

Such a beautiful sunny day. The gold in my outfit representing the golden glimmer of the sun. We managed to hit the light perfectly and I was having a good hair day! My salon, Sparks Hair Design is amazing. I always come out with the perfect cut and my GK Keratin Treatment makes my hair so easy to deal with! They’re the best!

I played up the gold accents on my animal print jeans with a shimmery black and gold top, and black and gold accessories like my earrings, bracelets, sunglasses and shoes. Lubi also looks exceptionally dashing today doesn’t he?

Falling For It

What a nice break! The temperature today only reached about 70 degrees. Such a welcome change from the heat wave we’ve been experiencing. I had to wear something just a little bit “fall-ish”.

This top can definitely be put into the “Wear it Now, Wear it Later” category. I could easily incorporate it into my true fall wardrobe. OK, I put on coated jeans again. So sue me! These are slightly too thick for a hot summer day but feel just fine when it’s nice and cool and breezy. I’m so obsessed with Oliver Peoples sunglasses. These are very oversized, but the soft “pecan” colour gives them a soft pretty look. Fringed suede booties are definitely another cross over item. I think the light colour allows me to wear them in the spring and summer, especially with cropped pants, shorts or a skirt without looking silly. Love my boots!

Aztec Empire

Aztec Empire

It’s another scorcher! This Aztec print blouse is open in the back so it doesn’t cling or touch you. Such a key factor when it’s so blooming hot! The skirt is also made of a nice light silky material that doesn’t cling. I’m not sure how many cute outfits I can come up with before this heatwave finally subsides. It’s difficult, literally, to keep your cool! Lightweight clothing and staying indoors is just the only option right now! How do you do it people?

Too Hot!

Too Hot!

I’m not referring to me. I’m referring to the weather. It’s over 90 degrees and the air conditioning can’t keep up! I had to wear something cool that didn’t touch me. People in my office are always freezing and I’m always dying of the heat! I’m so not a fan of the heat! This dress is light and airy so I didn’t feel like my clothes were sticking to me. It has a graphic pattern and some sequins that are very subtle.

A friend of mine told me that she never thought about accessorizing until she read my blog. You know who you are! Yeah! I influenced someone! Enjoy the outfit and accessories!

Needlepoint

Needlepoint

I fell in love with this vest. It’s so “not me” but it caught my eye and I get a lot of complements on it. It has a lot of cool zippers that offset the flowery needlepoint pattern. The bows on these jeans are also just so fun! We were having dinner with the family to celebrate my sister-in-law’s birthday. A nice restaurant, but one where jeans are still acceptable. I like my blue jeans on the weekends since I can’t wear them to work!
