friday find: pearls




Happy Friday!  I was in Florida this past week visiting Orlando, Palm Beach and Miami!  It was such a great trip, especially Palm Beach, a place I've never been to.  I am already booking our next trip!  I tried taking pictures of my outfits but I was dying in the heat (I don't know how bloggers do it and look so chic and not sweaty ha!) so unfortunately I won't have those to show you, but I will wear those outfits in the near future I'm sure and will post them soon.  Anyway, today's find is something I found while shopping in Disney Springs: these amazing Free People Pearl Crop Straight Leg Jeans.  They are full length on me, but fit great.  I love embellishments on denim.  They make wearing a pair of jeans that much more fun!  Plus, they look fancy but you don't feel fancy (i.e., uncomfortable).  I preferred the fit of these Free People straight-leg jeans, but Anthropologie also makes a similar pair of jeans embellished with pearls in a relaxed boyfriend fit.

Happy shopping!

friday find: ruffle sleeve
























Happy Friday!  Today's find is striped (again), but this time the focus is on the sleeves.  How pretty are these ruffle sleeves?  Not only are they ruffled, but they tie up too!  I've always loved Pixie Market for their unique pieces.  If you have never shopped at Pixie Market, this pretty striped top gives you a great idea on the types of items you'll find on their site.  The best part is that their prices are budget-friendly.  This top is under $100!  You can wear it from work to dinner and then brunch the next day!  (Okay, you might want to wash it first.  And not have brunch with the same people you had dinner with the night before.)  This ruffle sleeve top would look great with these Madewell 9" High-Rise Skinny Jeans in Pure White for summer and then come fall, pair it with these FRAME high-waisted flare jeans, or with your favourite skinny jeans and boots (obsessing over these ZARA Leather High Heel Ankle Boots With Bow).

Happy shopping!

retro / striped tee


{Free People Need You Printed Tee (comes in 3 colours);
Brixton Dalila Hat (sold out, love this one);

I'm always on the lookout for a tee that's not basic (I have enough black tees), but that I could wear without a bra.  This Free People Need You Printed Tee is certainly not basic.  I love the colourful stripes!  They're in the front and back of this 'easy, relaxed fit' tee.  Last Friday night we went for a stroll downtown Greenville so I paired this tee with my go-to One Teaspoon Junkyard Skirt and white vans (not shown).  I thought of pairing this outfit with my pink Rebecca Minkoff bag, but instead decided to keep my accessories neutral and let the colourful stripes stand out even more.  Also, I'm in fall fashion mode lately now that fall items are starting to appear online and in stores.  This outfit would transition perfectly into fall with a cardigan (I'm obsessing over this Free People Creme Brulee Cardi) and over-the-knee boots (can never go wrong with the Stuart Weitzman The Lowland Boot!  Also love these Vince Camuto Karinda Over The Knee Boots - they're under $250!).

Happy shopping!

friday find: a little flare




Happy Friday!  Today's Friday find has a little flare.  I keep seeing cropped flare jeans everywhere so it's safe to say they'll be a big trend for fall.  I love these Citizens of Humanity Drew High-Rise Cropped Flare Jeans.  I love how the back hem is higher which makes these flare jeans unique.  They're a great colour too, not too light and not too dark.  I was eyeing these Paige Rafaela Mid-Rise Skinny Cropped Ruffle Petite Jeans since I'm petite, but they've sold out rather quickly.  Only a few sizes left!  Shopbop carries them in regular sizes here.  For a more budget-friendlier pair, these Blank Denim Trumpet Flare Jeans are under $100!

Happy shopping!

kiss me off-the-shoulder


Prada Minimal Baroque Sunglasses (also here)}

On our shopping trip in Charlotte, NC, a couple of weekends ago, I picked up this pretty pink off-the-shoulder top at Free People.  I was looking for something casual that you can just throw on and go, but not a basic tee (I have enough of those and wore them out in the first few weeks after our move).  This 'Kiss Me Tube' checked off all of the boxes.  But unlike the pink off-the-shoulder top in my last post, this one tends to ride up.  But it's super comfy and flowy, almost like a poncho, perfect for the heat.  I love the raw edges.  We headed out for a casual dinner and walk around downtown Greenville so I paired the off-the-shoulder top with my go-to AGOLDE Parker Vintage Cutoff Shorts (again). (I wasn't joking when I said I have been living in them!)  Not a huge fan of pink?  The Kiss Me Tube also comes in black (which looks more like grey).

Happy shopping!
