If there was one place that I had to live for the rest of my life, I would choose New York. However, if New York wasn’t an option, I would definitely choose Canmore. For all you non-Canadians, Canmore is the cutest town you will ever see. It’s buried in the mountains, about 20 minutes outside of Banff. It’s so peaceful here and recently, we took Oakley (my dog) to the town and he loved it just as much as me.

How can you focus on my outfit when there are mountains right behind me? The mountains are distracting me with their beauty. For those who have never seen mountains in person, you need to get your butt over here.

Anyways, my shirt is from a cute boutique called Simple Addiction. It’s a lace high low shirt with three quarter length sleeves and a low, open back. I’m usually not the biggest fan of open back shirts but I thought this one was very tasteful and pretty. I paired it with these orange shorts from Gentle Fawn and added strappy, snakeskin sandals. For jewelry, I wore my Fossil watch (duh!), a new bracelet from Simple Addiction with pretty blue stones, and my favorite grey and gold bangle from J.Crew.

So folks, I hope to see you all in Canmore when I’m there next. It really is the best place on earth.

The Search for The Denim Dress

 

I have been on the search for the perfect chambray dress for as long as I can remember. Six year old me was probably looking for one. Let’s be honest, I was one stylish toddler. Originally I wanted a denim shirt dress with a collar and buttons and everything (which I’m still on the hunt for), but I came across this one at H&M and it was love at first sight. It’s part of the Eco Conscious collection so it’s made out of a really cool material called lyocell; it’s like denim but better. It’s a pretty simple silhouette with cute added details like pockets and an exposed gold zipper on the back. Best part? I got this dress on sale for a decent 20 bucks, far from it’s regular price of $50. Good on ya H&M!

I paired this dress with a lace cardigan. I wear this so much in the summer because it’s so lightweight and instantly dresses up any outfit. For shoes, I chose these snakeskin sandals that I’ve been dying to pull out after this long horrible winter. I always pair this Celine-lookalike purse with the sandals because I think they compliment each other perfectly. For jewelry, I wore all gold pieces, which I dot usually do. I just like silver jewelry better. However the gold fits in much better with the warmer shades. I love the look of a gold chain choker with a higher neckline. For bracelets, I’m wearing a cool fish cuff with my J.Crew bracelets that even though I love, I never seem to wear.

On a finishing note, let’s applaud my mama’s flowers. Her lilacs are in bloom and I wish you all could smell them through the screen. Their scent is filling up my room right now. I just love summer.

Winter Break

I’m officially on winter break and I’ve never been happier! I am not going to think about school for three weeks, how great does that sound?! Not that finals are over, and Christmas is nearing, I have been putting more of a festive touch on my outfits. I like to dress casual but add cute pieces to make it a bit more fancier. Because to me, fancy = festive.

The main part of my outfit is this gorgeous necklace from Knotty Gal. It truly is the perfect statement necklace. It consists of a cute black rope intertwined in a gold chain. The name, Knotty Gal, describes this company perfectly. All of their jewelry is made from knotted cord and metal to create a stunning masterpiece. I love all of their jewelry so much! Also, Knotty Gal donates a portion of all proceeds to the Bhandari Girls School. So not only are you getting a gorgeous piece of jewelry, but you are also giving girls the chance to learn and follow their dreams! What more could you want?!

Because I wanted this necklace to stand out, I kept the rest of the outfit pretty basic. I threw on this maroon/purple tee from American Eagle. This is one of my favorite shirts right now because from the front, it looks like a regular t shirt but then when you turn around… BAM… gorgeous pleated chiffon dresses it up. For bottoms, I’m wearing my new pair of Miss Sixty denim that are absolutely perfect. They fit so well and may be the comfiest pair I have ever owned. To complete the outfit, I finished with black accessories, like my Bloch flats and this oversized handbag.
