JEANS, TEE & DISTRESSED JEANS

COMME OUT AND PLAY

WEDlogo

Happy Wednesday everyone…May is just flying by, although the weather does not match the calendar. This wet weather has put a damper (literally) on my blog photo shoots, so this is an indoor shoot in my husband’s shop.

When I was out shopping with a client I spied this Comme des Garcon tee shirt I was smitten. I know it has a hefty price tag but I was willing to pay for it and I would never, ever, ever buy a knock off! My sister-in-law and I are always on the hunt for graphic tees they are so versatile and can instantly make any outfit hip and current.

Style Tip: Pair a graphic tee with a pleated midi skirt or floral trousers, make sure at least one colour is common in both pieces.

I love this casual outfit for running errands or I have worn it out shopping with a client.

I just got these new ‘Miss’ Stan Smith sneakers and they are like walking on a cloud…a streamlined version of the classic Stan Smith which I am also obsessed with (last worn here).

And this is me being an ass.

HOW TO MIX CASUAL & DRESSY PIECES

SPORTY, SPICE…AND EVERYTHING AT A GREAT PRICE

I bought this pleated midi skirt from Banana Republic (also love this one) last season and I wasn’t sure how to style it, yes even I get stumped sometimes. I was flipping through my InStyle magazine and got inspired by an article on mixing polo shirts with flowy bottoms…modern and genius!

I scored this fitted Lacoste polo from Winners, but I think the quality is worth paying full price. I paired my casual shirt with statement earrings from Banana Republic that pick up the green in my gator. Since cutting my hair short I have a bit of an obsession with statement earrings.

Style Tip: Try wearing your  fancy statement jewellery with casual pieces in your wardrobe…anyone can try this look to feel fresh and modern.

These black chunky Nine West sandals (similar here) help ground the outfit and I threw on a thick black belt with leopard accents…because why not?

What are you up to this weekend? Levi has a ballgame tomorrow and Ava has her first triathlon of the season Sunday, hoping the rain holds off…I am so over this wet Spring!!

HOW TO ROCK LACE WITH EDGE

LACE IT UP

I found this incredible classic lace Chloe top at Winners for an absolute steal (like I think they should have moved the decimal place over)…but who am I to question their pricing. I happily skipped to the checkout and made my purchase!

The weather here has been cooler and wetter than usual…kinda depressing really. But yesterday was simply sunny and glorious!

I paired this very feminine top with my fav distressed crops to give it some edge and I absolutely love this look.

And these are my magical Alexander Wang booties that are just the coolest, right?

Today is my son Levi’s 8th birthday. Look at that little angel, it brings a few tears to my eyes when I realize how quickly time does pass us by. I am surprising his class with McFlurries later…I am so excited to see his face! I am so proud to be his Mom and he has the biggest heart of anyone I know.

Here in Canada we have a long weekend, the unofficial start to summer…yeah right! But we will enjoy the extra day off probably wearing our toques.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

MONOCHROMATIC DRESSING

THE CANADIAN TUXEDO…EH?

WEDlogo

Well I am an 100% ‘Canadian Built’ girl, and I am very proud to live in this vast beautiful country. I am not sure how the whole ‘Canadian Tuxedo’ came to be, and why denim on denim has such a negative connotation is beyond me. It is monochromatic dressing at its simplest and most casual.

amydressed-blue-monochromatic.jpg

Tim and I were having this exact debate over the weekend. He recently purchased a cool light wash Levi’s denim jacket and didn’t want to wear it with dark wash jeans…his wife is a stylist and he had the nerve to question my professional opinion!!! Well he finally listened and received a compliment on his outfit, and that’s all I have to say about that!

amydressed-instlye-spring2017.jpg

This is my take on the Canadian tuxedo, gaucho’s from Gap, a denim jacket from J Crew and a graphic bodysuit from Pink. To add some interest and more hues of blue I added this scarf from Banana Republic and my cute Coach purse.

amydressed-gap-pink-jcrew.jpg

Style Tip: Monochromatic dressing is modern, slimming and elongating, what girl doesn’t want that? Give it a try with varying shades and textures of the same colour, ease into it with a neutral like gray or white.

I hope I have inspired you to give this look a try and send me a pic of your outfits.

LACE FLOWER POWER

SPRING FLING // CASUAL OUTFIT

WEDlogo.jpg

It is finally feeling like spring, polished toes are peeping out and jackets are only required for fashion and not function!

amydressed-french-connection-lace-blouse.jpg

This blouse from French Connection is a piece of art, the details are stunning and some of the flowers are three dimensional. It has a loose casual silhouette, so I paired it with my favourite Citizens of Humanity Rocket crops…they have been a transitional staple for years.

amydressed-weekend-chic-spring-2017.jpg

Style Tip: When wearing a loose top, to help balance your look pair it with a streamlined bottom suck as a skinny pant or fitted pencil skirt.

amydressed-spring-2017-casual.jpg

Statement blouses and sleeves especially are on trend this spring. This is a simple way to elevate any outfit and make it current.

These snake peep toe booties are from Banana Republic and are also a transitional staple, the print is subtle enough that they go with everything.

Wishing all you lovelies a beautiful evening.
