Crazy for two tone

Two toned denim is a fashion craze that’s always in and out of style. Right now it’s so in for me, because I’m really feeling my new pair of two toned jeans. One of my favorite “go to’s” for a great pair of denim is Hidden Jeans. I was shopping around my favorite boutique 3NY when I randomly and found these two toned denim pants, I fell in love as soon as I saw them. I’m all about wearing things that I have a connection with, so I knew that I could rock these in a really cute way that fits my style. 

I styled my jeans with a white distressed crop top sweater, it was important for me to keep the top simple yet stylish, because I wanted to the emphasis to remain on the jeans, I also love the element this top brings to the two tone denim. I decided to go with metallic oxfords, seeing the pants have a retro feel and the metallic shoes matched that vibe. To complete my OOTD, I gave the look a modern twist by accessorizing it with a cross body bag, mirrored sunnies and a bold red lip. My jeans of course were by hidden jeans, but I also picked out a few two tone denim styles i'm currently crushing on for you guys below. Can't wait to see how you guys rock two tone denim!

It's Gingham Season

It's no secret gingham has taken over this season. Whether it's a blouse, skirt or dress i'm sure most of you have worn gingham this spring. I'm not going to lie, gingham at first was a bit intimidating for me, because i'm more of a jeans & tee kinda gal. I knew I wanted to incorporate it into my wardrobe, but I wasn't sure how. I was shopping on Asos one afternoon when I finally found the gingham piece I wanted to purchase, a beautiful maxi skirt that I would be able to wear with heels, flats or sneakers. For this outfit I added a T-shirt & my go to motocyle jacket to complete the look and make it more edgy. 

The T-shirt I chose was from H&M which says FEMME VIBE, it was important for me to get a fun graphic tee that wouldn't compete with the skirt. I added my favorite Moto jacket i've worn with previous looks by Lamarque, a leather company out of Montreal Canada. Random fact i'm Canadian, so i'm always happy to wear/support Canadian brands :-) I wore heels which is totally out of the norm for me, but I plan to wear this look again with some vans. Have you guys tried gingham? What item did you choose? I would love to hear all about it. Comment below!


Casual Chic

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite outfits. You guys know by now that I’m in love with boyfriend jeans and I wear them often. I usually style my boyfriend jeans with a cute pair of flats, or sneakers this creates a really clean cut and comfortable everyday look. Occasionally I like to play around with this style by spicing it up a bit. Whether I’m going to brunch, drinks with friends, or on a date I love keeping the concept of my comfortable “go to” outfit, but I add a chic flare to it, by throwing on some heels which gives me that extra element I’m looking for. 

Ok, so let me give you the scoop...Last summer I was so close to purchasing the Gianvito Rossi heels when Zara(who doesn't love Zara?) came out with the look for less. I'm such a fan of designer labels just like any other fashionista, but i'm not one to pass up on a good deal especially since I don't wear heels very often. The Gianvito Rossi heels were $795 vs Zara's version for $49 soooo I went with Zara. They are so comfy & I can wear them for hours without discomfort, so i'm glad I opted for the "look for less". Unfortunately, they aren't in stores anymore but I was able to find them on eBay for those of you who are interested.


It Finally feels like Spring

Ok so if you live on the east coast like me, then you know our weather has been one crazy roller coaster ride. Just when it started to feel like spring I purchased the Gucci Princetown Mules I talked about in my previous post. Before I had a chance to rock these babies we had a snowstorm, and temperatures dropped below the freezing mark. This week it started to feel like spring and I finally had a chance to wear them.
My outfit was all about taking a simplistic approach to styling spring's hottest looks. I'm wearing a pair of distressed suspender boyfriend jeans by Hidden Jean, these are a light wash which are perfect for the weather. Switching over from dark wash to light wash jeans, is something people tend to forget about in the spring. Now is the perfect time to break out your light wash jeans, or invest in a good pair. 


Why The Gucci Princetown Mules Are A Good Spring/Summer Wardrobe Choice

The Gucci Princetown Mules are a really popular shoe right now, & I can definitely see why. They are insanely comfortable, yet classy and chic at the same time. These shoes can easily be styled in a number of ways, and that's what makes them such a great spring and summer shoe.
On the Gucci website you can see that they come in four different colors. I chose the black ones for myself, but there's also brown, hibiscus red, and gold. They also have the well known ones with the fur in the back, or the ones with the floral print on top.
One of the ways I plan to style these mules, is with a pair of boyfriend jeans. If you follow me on the gram, then you know I live in Boyfriend jeans lol. Boyfriend jeans are very comfortable and stylish and so are the mules, paired together they provide a minimalistic quality that's casual and chic. Since, these shoes can double as an amazing summer shoe, I'd also wear them with shorts. 
 A T-shirt dress with the Gucci Princetown Mules, would create a great laid back fashionable style. I would definitely pair the two for day of shopping, a casual work meeting, or a brunch date. I love effortless looks that say a lot, without looking like you're trying too hard.
