Staff Picks for Summer 2012!
April 25, 2012
I realized that a lot of my own spring wardrobe is lacking colour. I’m always wearing greys and blacks, even in the warm weather! I chose these red Joe’s Jeans because they’re such a smart way to add colour into your wardrobe, without going over the top! They work well with all my neutral tops, and are so comfortable. This LA Made criss cross top is great too. It’s made out of a lightweight sweater material which feels amazing on, and the back adds a bit of playfulness to an otherwise basic top. To top it all off, I chose the Mackage Alba trench coat incase there’s cooler weather (or crazy winds!).
I am in love with this Mackage dress! It’s super slimming and has the most incredible panel details. It’s the perfect length for me too. It’s sexy without showing too much skin. It is the greatest LBD! I also paired it with a pair of Kenneth Cole heels. Since it is a black dress, it’s very easy to pair it with any type or colour of shoe. Don’t forget to play around with accessories too! Some cute bangles and a simple necklace would look great with this outfit!
For me, my everyday casual clothes need to be comfortable, functional and stylish! My “go-to” look usually involves a pair of great jeans and some sort of a blazer or leather jacket. I chose these coloured skinny jeans from Joe’s Jeans as they are super comfortable. They are also a great alternative to my everyday blue jeans. I especially love the colour (thyme) as they satisfy my cargo pant craving without adding the extra material of pockets on my thighs. I paired the jeans with one of my favourite Mackage light weight jackets (the Omala) for this spring. The blue jewel tone of the jacket goes nicely with the green jeans and the double zip front adds some interesting detail.
This Laundry by Shelli Segal dress is so fun! What’s not to love about this dress?? While the colours alone are not too “out there”, together the stripes are refreshingly bright. With an exposed zipper at the back and two horizontal zippers on the front pockets, this is the perfect dress to wear to a summer party. I also couldn’t help myself from falling in love with these Kenneth Cole wedges (in fawn). They are extremely comfortable as the cork wedge is incredibly light weight. Perfect for dancing the night away!
