Festival Style inspired #ootd

As we inch closer to warm weather and eventually summer, we approach outdoor festival season. With all festival events, especially music ones, comes festival style which has traditionally featured elements of boho, punk, or floral fashions. Essentially, anything goes and it's a great time to experiment, get creative and be comfortable. 

The Patterned Pastel Dress with Dixie Outlet Mall

If you have been following the Sincerely Miss J blog for a while, you know that I love unique fashion finds at reasonable price points. For this post, I collaborated with Dixie Outlet mall, a shopping outlet mall located in Southern Ontario. I've been shopping there since I was a child, so it is pretty awesome to be able to share with you my #dixiedeal

Prints at the Office

My new rule for purchasing or adding things to my closet is that I want to be able to pair the item with 4 or 5 other items in my wardrobe. If it's an item that is not very practical and matches nothing then I will usually pass on it.  I do this to ensure that I don't own items that I have never worn and that ultimately saves money and reduces clutter in my closet.

Monochrome Again! Black and White Ankara Print

During the last few years blogging, I've had the opportunity to meet and work with some amazing people.  When the wonderful people at Vlisco, one of the world's largest suppliers for wax prints contacted me with a challenge of styling their monochrome fabric, I was thrilled and jumped at the opportunity. The challenge was welcomed because of my love for wearing black and white. As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm still a color and print person but the classic and polished look of pairing black and white together makes me reach for it often. When most people think African wax fabric or Ankara fabric they often think of vibrant, and bold patterns so this fabric is a bit of a deviation from the norm. Here is how I styled a black and white monochrome patterned fabric and made it work for me.

It's been awhile since I've been able to blog because I had to take a break to focus on some personal life goals. I never knew how much time I spent on  this little space until I stepped away from it for a little bit of time. However, I am back with this causal outfit sporting a white tee, flared jeans, a vest and a classic trench coat in preparation for the warmer weather and hopefully the end of winter. 

The Suede Culottes

The Suede Culottes, Toronto Blogger, Spring #ootd, Sincerely Miss JI love culottes and I think I dig them because I prefer things that are not form fitting and love anything that stops at midi length. Although I am 5'2, I still find them flattering on me and on most body types.
When I become obsessed with something I am one of those people who will buy it in every color or pattern, so adding a suede pair to my wardrobe only seemed fitting.
