Walking Around in Circles: Pastel Blue, Stripes & A Reflection

A few months ago I felt like I had been walking around in circles with certain aspects of my life, and this blog had been one of them. Up until a couple months ago, I was really considering shutting down the blog after 5 years on this space. However, I just could not do it.

Stripe obsession

Happy Monday everyone! Although, I do love bright colours and patterns, my go to hues will always be black and white. Today, I'm sporting a black and white look with stripes and a pop of red. I then decided to layer together a long sliver necklace with a choker necklace to add some interest to the look without overwhelming the outfit.

One of the benefits of attending World Master Card Fashion Week was going home with a goodie bag. One of the items that I received was the new Dove dry spray anti-perspirant in two scents, beauty finish and original. 

Currently Crushing on...Aldo Polka Dot Pumps

Aldo choewia Polka Dot Pumps, Heels

When I think of polka dots I immediately have the image of a 1950/60s pin up girl with her perfect hourglass dress and red pout. During the years this trend never completely left the fashion scene and Aldo is currently continuing it with these pumps. We especially love them for it's large polka dot print as oppose to a smaller one.

Colourful Stripes

Challenges will come when things get hard but that does not always mean that you're doing something wrong. Often it's a sign that you are doing something right. Turn obstacles and challenges into your own successes.

Finding and purchasing a great pair of eyeglasses at an affordable price is a process that both Jackline and I know very well. Both of us need and wear prescription eyeglasses, and finding the perfect pair in the style, brand, shape and color we want can get very costly especially if you don’t have insurance to cover the cost.

I have not been able to do a "fashion 9-5" post in awhile. However, today I'm giving my business causal wearing ladies some fun inspiration with colour and polka dots.
Did you ever imagine that combining a polka dot skirt and a bright yellow trench coat, would actually look this chic and be appropriate for the workplace?  I didn't until now.

The black culottes are back! But this time I styled them a little differently than the first time, which you can see here
All the items used in this outfit are basic pieces that were already in my closet and are put together in a simple way.

Currently Crushing on... Joe Fresh Jogging Pant

This week’s item for"currently crushing on"..is a casual girl's best friend. I was at work on Monday and I proceeded to sit on my chair like I do every work day. The next thing I heard was a loud “rippp” sound from the seams of my pant pulling apart. Within seconds my bottom was more or less exposed *hides face in shame*. The bright side was that my coworker and I were the only ones present at the time. After a few minutes of uncontrollable laugher I made my way to the closest store which happened to be a Joe Fresh. My bottom was covered with a sweater to hide the huge rip so I could get some replacement pants.

The Fringe Jacket

I love finding unique finds to add to my closet and one of the best places to find them is at vintage, consignment or thrift stores. Fringe is huge this season and can be found on everything from jackets, accessories, skirts and dresses. Therefore, I was quite fortunate to find this vintage fringe jacket at one of my favourite vintage stores in downtown Toronto.
I paired the jacket with a white blouse and jeans to give the look a crisp and spring feel. I then finished the look off with a similar color heel to the jacket to complete the look.

This is the second time I'm writing and posting because my first post was deleted, and I'm still unsure why. So, I thought I would rewrite and repost it with my fingers crossed that it does not happen again.

Ladies if you have Instagram then you likely have seen the various pages promoting and selling GORGEOUS African print maxi skirts. Am I the only person that openly drools over them in the comfort (and privacy) of my own home?
