Summer Staples


I'm attending the Jennyfleur Loves fashion show tonight, so with a prospective busy day ahead I thought I'd sneak in a little outfit post while the morning is still young :)

I wore this a couple days ago for an afternoon stroll downtown & then out to supper with the girls. Unlike most days, I didn't have to think too much about this outfit. It was the first thing I put together & I felt it worked well. It features three of my newest items: Steve Madden pistol boots, H&M denim jacket,  & an oversized neon green tee from Gap. The boots are my favourite; I've been wearing them non-stop all week. Same goes for the denim jacket. Along with the maxi skirt, they are all great staple pieces for Summer! 





Going-away supper for Sabrina (in the coral) at my favourite vegan restaurant in Vancouver, The Naam!


Naam Salad starter with parsley tahini dressing - so so good!


Being crafty & lazy at the same time. I didn't have time to run out for a pair of spandex shorts & desperately needed something to layer under my sheer skirt. These white leggings worked, but I didn't like the length showing. Stubbornly refusing to take off my boots, I just cut them off. Hey, it worked. 


I'm off to catch up on my sleep (worked at 4AM this morning, eesh) & then a little shopping! I'll be sure to post photos from tonight's show as soon as possible :)

I was wearing:
Neon green tee - Gap (here)
Accordion-pleat maxi - American Apparel (here)
Denim jacket - H&M
Patent cross-body - Vintage
Pistol boots - Steve Madden
Chronograph Watch - Michael Kors (here)
Glasses - Ray Ban

  10. Good idea about the leggings, and the shorts for that matter! I have a similar sheet pleated maxi in black and am not sure how to wear it other than over a swimsuit, haha. I'm going to give the shorts/leggings a try!
