At one point in style time, Canadian tuxedos were a serious faux pas, however, the times have changed and it is not stylishly acceptable to mix and match denim in one outfit. This Tencel Indigo Pullover Top is not as restricting as denim, but more lax and comfy. It is something that can be worn on a cozy day with sweats, or with your favorite pair of denim blues. I chose to style it with my favorite pair of legging jeans and broke the outfit up with a classic brown belt. I guess you can say, I’m going for a Western look–I don’t hate it! When wearing denim on denim, it’s important to style your blues appropriately. What I mean by that is, don’t try and match your denim top and bottom exactly. Go for a light and dark look. This way, you’re able to accessorize more and you won’t look overly monochromatic.

EASTER BEST

DSC_0502EDITEDDSC_0495EDITEDDSC_0506 2EDITEDDSC_0464EDITEDDSC_0466EDITEDDSC_0472 2DSC_0477EDITEDDetails: LOFT Shimmer Floral Flounce Dress, here | Dansko’s Demetra sandal, here |

This was one of the first Easter’s in a while that I was able to wear a dress without tights or a coat. It was almost too hot this weekend; a whopping 86-degrees. My Easter Sunday began with a beautiful sunrise mass with my mom and dad. It was so peaceful. This time of year is always hard because we lost a lot of loved ones in the months of March and April. Fortunately, there were signs all around us at mass, making both my mom and I laugh and cry. After mass, we prepared for Easter brunch and the egg hunt. All the little babies were in search of those bright candy filled eggs. So fun to watch! Like I said, this was one of the first Easters in a long time that I didn’t have to wear pants or a coat. I finally got to take this Floral Flounce Dress out on the town. It’s comfortable and elegant all at once. I also love how I was successfully able to hide my Easter brunch belly. Usually, when I’m at home I wear no shoes, socks or slippers, but because I recently got a pair of Dansko’s Demetra sandal and found them to be unbelievably comfortable, I was able to wear a cute stylish shoe all day long. Not even kidding. I’m surprised at how comfortable they are, given the generous height. I’m a neutral girl, so I obviously gravitated to the taupe color, but they are also available in black and brown. I haven’t stopped wearing them. I think I may have found my go-to summer sandal. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Let the flowy dress and sandal wearing weather continue :).

I probably have as many shirt dresses as I have socks. I can never have enough and I like them because not only are they classic, but they can be dressed up or down. This dress from J.Jill is not only on one of my favorite colors, but it’s super style-able. I layered a sweater vest over it and I like it because it breaks up the sometimes overwhelming stripes. Fortunately, there is no more snow in the forecast, so I will be able to style this the way it’s intended to be styled…with sandal wedges–of course! I can’t wait for 70-degree weather next week, I’m currently dusting off my shirtdresses and sleeveless tops.
