Sorry I’ve been MIA but the end of summer just creeped up on me and I had to enjoy the last few weeks! I promise I am back to regularly scheduled blog posts!
Ok, now that that is aside, I just wanted to share with you a few of my weekend outfits! I had a couple of events to attend this weekend and it just so happened that mustard yellow seemed to be a trend for me this weekend.
Outfit One: Ripped Jeans and a Mustard Yellow Kimono.
I wore this outfit to a birthday brunch for my friend at Toronto’s The Drake Hotel (Check out my blog post on the restaurant here) Sidenote: hands down the best chicken and waffles ever.
I found these jeans at Old Navy on the sale rack. I think I picked them up for something ridiculous like 9 dollars! They are extremely distressed which I LOVE ! ( My dad asked me if my jeans were supposed to look like that LOL) They are also a high waisted fit which is very comfortable for me. These jeans also have a lot of stretch in them which makes them easy to wear for long periods of time ( think about eating a really good meal, who wants uncomfortable jeans on after that??! Not I!!! )
I paired them with a plain white camisole from Forever 21. My mustard and maroon kimono is also from Forever 21 ( last year) I love the velvet detailing of the maroon patches. It adds some diversity to the otherwise plain kimono and the tassel detailing just brings this kimono all together. This kimono allows me to embrace my inner hippie and still keep it grunge!:)
On my feet, I just had on my rose gold slippers from Aldo Shoes. I have worn the heck out of these shoes this summer! I actually think I am going to go back and pick up another pair for next summer!
For jewellery I only added some big hoops and of course my necklace that I never take off!
For my makeup, I literally wore eyeliner ( Maybelline Unstoppable in Onyx) and Lipgloss ( MAC Lipglass in the colour Bittersweet Me) Guys, NO FOUNDATION! ( Come through skin!!! lol)
Outfit 2: White pencil dress and a Mustard Yellow Blazer…
This was a church outfit. Today my goddaughter was getting christened at church, so I wanted to wear something bright and cheery .
I purchased this white pencil dress from a store called Sirens. This was literally a purchase on whim a few weeks back for an all white event I had to go to. So comfortable! It literally hugs every curve though, so if that’s not a look you are interested in, perhaps this dress is not the one for you. I paired it with a mustard yellow blazer. What drew me to this particular blazer were the interesting peplum sleeves. I also really liked the oversized style of this jacket. I like the fact that you can wear this piece as a blazer or even as a light jacket if you prefer.
I just threw on some low heeled nude pumps today ( I just couldn’t manage real heels today lol) gold hoops and that’s it!
I wore light makeup: just some concealer ( late nights caught up with me lol) eyeliner and a fuchsia pink pout to compliment the yellow!
Thanks for stopping in y’all!
