OOTD - Black, White and Leopard Dressed Up Neutrals


I love neutrals.  If I'm going out and I want to feel my most comfortable, I will always dress in very basic neutrals with only accessories to dress up the look.  What can I say - I'm a very simple Noob! I just purchased these Steve Madden Nonstp Toesless booties, and I can officially say that I'm in love - they're extremely versatile and add just enough heel to not overwhelm my conservative self.  In this case, the booties dress up my favourite pair of white cropped jeans and black knit shirt - add a leopard clutch and you've got yourself an outfit!  Read on for all outfit details, and additional photos.




Booties - Steve Madden Nonstp, Shirt - Club Monaco, Jeans - Old Navy
Clutch - Clare Vivier, Sunglasses - Karen Walker

Be still my heart!  I'll be honest, I was having a rough day - I felt like nothing was in my favour.  As I was grouchily passing through The Hudson's Bay departments store on my way home, I was hit with a frenzy of frantic women - it was flash sale on all shoes!  I threw myself into the madness, determined to find a great summer boot.  After elbowing my way from one end of the shoe department to another, I found them - my summer bootie!  Faster than you can say "retail therapy", the boots where purchased, packed up and in my hot little hands as I skipped and whistled the rest of the way home.  The power of shoes, it's a marvellous thing! 




What do you think of a neutral outfit - within your comfort level or too ordinary to stand out?  Let me know!

    1. Great tip, although admittedly I purposefully try to stay away from Vaughan Mills - every time I leave the mall, my credit card is in flames! I might have to make the exception for hr2!

    1. Thank you Grace! I typically curl my hair with a straightener because it's the only way that the curl will hold.

      Yes, love meeting fellow Canadian bloggers, it's so fun! What part of Canada are you from?

  6. I just discovered your blog via Lauren Conrad's Chic of the Week and I absolutely love it! I love the aesthetics of it overall, as well as your consistent style. I'm pretty new at blogging and just figuring myself (and my style) out, so consistency is something I'm definitely striving to achieve. Anyway, I'm your new Bloglovin' follower.

    1. Hi Ada, thanks for the comment! I feel you for the style consistency - I struggle with finding and defining a consistent personal style, without wearing the exact same thing over and over again!
