Casual Saturday



I am not now, nor have I ever been (nor I suspect will ever be) a Jeans kinda girl. Jeans are what I wear when I can't stand the dead of winter cold, or on lazy days when I want to haul on something in 2 seconds flat. To be outrightly honest the reason for my jean-dread is they make me horribly self-conscious about my legs (we all have that one thing we dislike about ourselves; that one is mine). But there comes a point when you have to say, the hell with it; this is me, I'll wear what I wear, & be happy about it. So while light-wash jeans & bold lace accentuation might be a strange choice for a self-conscious girl I couldn't help but loving this pair of Silvers. I've only worn them a couple times, but with a cheery mood (ABBA-fueled) & some errands to run, they were what I chose this morning to go with my favourite scuba-esque peplum top.


When I do wear jeans I always like to dress them up a little, particularly with a pair of simple heels. Lately I've been favouring the pointy-toe; ever since digging up several such pairs in my old closet here in NL. As for other accessories, I went with my Vanilla Hamilton Michael Kors bag, gold Chronograph watch by the same, & a fun pastel statement necklace I bought at Zara on my last day in Vancouver. Black Zara military-style jacket to top it off, though with the temperature hovering around 0°C & very little wind, I was actually not freezing without it (desperate Spring hopes of an Atlantic Canadian). 


Celebrating Easter with the fam tomorrow & I'm looking forward to Easter presents, baking some pastel-coloured vegan goodies, & of course the very Easter-esque outfit I have set out. 

How are you spending your Easter weekend? :)







I was wearing:
Lace rip jeans - Silver Jeans
Black peplum top - H&M
Pastel Necklace - Zara
Hamilton Bag - Michael Kors
Gold Chronograph Watch - Michael Kors
Black pointy-toe heels - Spring (old)

    And yeah, haha, I don't think I'll ever be a jeans girl either. However, when I do wear mine, I like to style them how you did! Statement jewelry and shoes! <3

  6. That top w/the necklace looks great on you! <3

    I completely know what you mean about jeans! I practically live in dresses b/c they are just so much more comfortable & I feel like are more flattering than pants on me. I'm only 5'1 and have curves, and I feel like jeans just don't work that well with my body type!

  28. Shawna, you look great in jeans! I love how you jazzed them up by adding the heels, peplum blouse w/statement necklace (my fave!), and oversized handbag. This outfit went from potentially casual to positively chic! Random, but your hair also compliments this outfit perfectly. I love the loose curls.
    Let's see, Easter was great yesterday. We spent it with friends of the family - there was lots of food and plenty of wine. No complaints here! I hope yours was also a great time with great people.

  36. You definitely don't look like someone who doesn't like jeans. You wear them well! I love the lace on these. Much better than your regular boring old jeans (like mine : ) I also LOVE your top! Can't wait to see your Easter outfit...

    Hope you are having a great week!
