I couldn’t be more thankful to have a full week of good consistent summer weather and I found the perfect pair of sailor shorts to celebrate the week!!!!!!! I totally fell in love with these High Waist Nautical Shorts when I spotted them online. I just had to have them, but there’s nothing better than a purchase on sale…………….. These shorts were a match made in heaven and everything I imagined them to be and more in person. The features of these shorts are absolutely mind-blowing: piqué woven with nautical print, gold-tone button accents, invisible side zipper with hook and eye closure and welt back pockets. It also comes in three different sizes that include inseam: Petite=4″, Regular=5″, Long/Tall=6″, but at an over 60% discount these shorts are totally flying (just a few sizes left in petite and tall).
Now to this amazing blouse from H&M that I found for less than $20 at regular price and I couldn’t be happier (that’s what I call a total score). It looks so expensive in person and the continuous compliments, were definitely an added bonus……. This wide-cut blouse in lightly crêped woven fabric with short dolman sleeves couldn’t be more perfect, especially with the side slits that create that extra touch. For my accessories I kept it real simple with these diamond stud earrings, cognac leather rivet bracelet, large gold choker (similar styles available at Aldo accessories) that I purchased last year and these Michael Kors pumps that were also purchased about two years ago. But, I did find these Michael Kors Bennett Leather Wedge that would elevate this outfit to another level, plus its selling at 50% off! These Bennett wedges feature criss-cross straps in luxe vachetta leather, a sky-high 4.5″ platform, a wrapped woven heel and rubber sole (no falling accidents). Ladies it’s time to show off your legs and enjoy what’s left of the summer!!!
An evening out for dinner and I decided to go for a look totally outside my norm……… Let’s start with my favorite piece that completely had me in a fashion awe moment! I totally love this wrap skirt from H&M that is available in both Canada and the United States. It comes in two colors, which are the red/patterned and black. H&M describes this skirt as a figure-fit knee-length skirt in woven fabric with a sewn-in wraparound section at the front, metal buckle at the side and concealed zip at the back. It has just the right amount of stretch for the ultimate sexy fit, without the extreme clingy look.
I love this chiffon bodysuit that I purchased at Go Jane, but unfortunately it sold out!!!!!!! I found this Mila Bodysuit from the Eva Mendes Collection that fits flawlessly…………. If you want to complete this look with a burgundy bodysuit, the Mila bodysuit just so happens to come in four amazing colors. I purchased it in the black, but I chose not to wear it with this outfit even though it provided a fabulous finish. I was especially impressed with the extra-long sleeves and I couldn’t believe these were long enough for my arms………….. Eva Mendes describes this bodysuit as effortless elegance: a luxurious chiffon-draped front, complemented by billowy sheer sleeves.
Now to the accessories………. My vintage earrings are an old purchase from The Bay, but similar styles can be purchased from Bebe or Aldo accessories. Oh and of course, one of my favorite bags that I own is this amazing Nine West haircalf chain shoulder bag, but unfortunately to my surprise Nine West stores have closed. I visited Express last week, where I spotted this Faux Suede Chain Strap Shoulder Bag, which looks very similar to mine……… It offers a structured look with polished metal details, gold convertible chain strap and fold-over top with a turn lock closure. On my feet are these deliciously stunning Poetic License pump! These pumps happen to be an old purchase, but the Ablaze of glory pump in black and the Baby cakes pump in black on the website really caught my attention. Dare to incorporate this all burgundy look into your closet, for a fun night in town!!!
Spicing it up for Spring and I couldn’t be more pleased with the final look……… I absolutely adore the way this outfit came together and how the color choices complement each other! Let’s start off by talking about this highly bold multi-color paisley print blouse called the printed Ashton blouse. I feel like a million bucks, every time I put this blouse on………… This silk-like material in combination with the bold colors, really provides this blouse with a high-end luxury look at such an affordable sale price. It has such a comfortable fit and most importantly it’s breathable! Ladies if you want to get this blouse for yourself, do it NOW because at the new sale price it’s selling out quickly.
I’ve been hearing wonderful raves about Gap’s resolution true skinny jeans and I didn’t believe it until now. Now, I’m a believer of Gap’s statement “Our smartest stretch yet. The new Resolution denim is soft, comfortable, and defines your shape—it’s confidence you can wear”. I’ve searched high and low for the perfect pair of light-blue destructed jeans and I finally found my match made in heaven……….. These 1969 destructed resolution true skinny jeans in the color light authentic, simply exceeds all of my expectations!!!!! This particular color is selling out rather quickly, but not to worry because Gap’s resolution true skinny jeans come in a variety of colors. It also comes in four different inseams, which are regular: 30.5″/77.5 cm, long: 33″/84 cm, tall: 35″/89 cm and petite: 28″/71 cm. I got myself a pair in tall, but the long would have worked just as great! They fit like a glove, it’s almost like magic (it’s like a fix and lift).
I’m highly impressed with the way these jeans cling to my body without being tight or uncomfortable. It literally hides all of your imperfections, giving you that perfect body! This premium stretch resolution denim fabric is undeniably phenomenal and are amazingly soft, with just the right amount of stretch for the perfect comfort fit. Ladies you can’t and you won’t go wrong with this pair, especially since Gap constantly has a sale running! I will definitely be picking up a few more pairs because I’m crazy about the fit of these jeans……… I might need denim therapy by the time I’m through with this line of Gap’s resolution jeans!
To elevate this look, I paired up this outfit with medium brown accessories. I love the way the brown leather bracelet, belt and clutch bag tied everything in. For my shoes I chose to highlight one color from the blouse, so I went with a nude wedge to soften the entire look in a sophisticated way!
