OOTD - Old Navy White Jeans

Wednesday, 4 May 2016

Spring weather to me automatically means white denim.  I have seriously been loving my white jeans this season, as you can see by practically every outfit post featuring them! One of the questions that I often have asked is where my favourite white jeans are from, and my answer is simple: Old Navy. Thick enough to not be see-through, just the right amount of stretch and petite sizes - yep, I love me some Old Navy jeans! Paired with a light blue off-the-shoulder top and some platform sandals and all of a sudden my beloved jeans have a seventies vibe to them.

I feel like I'm hoarding blush bags lately, but this sweet little faux-suede fringe cross body had to come home with me. The fringe is so subtle and a great way to add interest to any outfit.  Plus since it has two zippered openings, the bag can hold a lot. I'm so glad that I scooped up this baby for the upcoming summer season music festivals.

Now for a bit of exciting news - Old Navy just went through a massive renovation at Yorkdale Shopping Centre and the results are absolutely beautiful! Check it out for yourself on Saturday, May 7 from 12noon - 4pm, and shop their spring collection - including this outfit, and receive a gift with purchase!

What do you guys think?  Did you have a hard time finding the perfect pair of white jeans as well?  What are your thoughts on the off-the-shoulder trend?  Let me know!

OOTD - Floral Maxi Skirt With Ever New

Monday, 2 May 2016

For those of you who have been following me for some time, you know that I've had a long journey in discovering my personal style.  Sometimes I feel as though I'm still figuring my style out, but throughout the whole journey one thing has stayed consistent: I have a soft spot for florals.  Anything with a floral patter makes my heart sing, and if it's done in a light and airy fabric then I'm sold.  When I first saw this floral patterned maxi skirt at Ever New, I knew instantly that it had to be mine.  Coupled with the retro-inspired lace crop top, block-heeled sandals and a sweet little mini bag, and I'm ready for Spring and Summer.
