Hat: J.Crew. Crop Top: American Apparel. Midi Skirt: Aritzia (similar). Shoes: Nine West. Handbag: Coach. Rings: Stella & Dot, The Bay, BCBG. Sunglasses: ZeroUV.

 

This outfit combines many of my current favorite trends: a classic-looks-good-on-everyone panama hat, a showing-just-a-sliver-of-skin crop top, a feels-like-a-girly-girl midi skirt and a not-your-typical-nurse’s-shoes pair of white pumps.  I’ve had my eye on a Panama hat for two summers now and finally decided to purchase this great option from J.Crew.

 

On the topic of midi skirts, in my last post I mentioned that I purchased a fabulous hot pink midi skirt from ASOS. Well, just hours after sharing that post, the skirt finally arrived in the mail.  To say I was disappointed is a major understatement.  The shape was beautiful, but I was not impressed with the material or workmanship.  Back in the mail it went immediately, so unfortunately you won’t be seeing me post that skirt.  Oh well, thank goodness for good return policies!

I love summer storms.  Well, I should say I love summer storms in my hometown.  My hometown gets the most incredible lightening and thunder storms.  The skies turn the most gorgeous shades of pinks, purples and greens, and the lightening is so bright that it literally lights up the entire sky.

 

Yet only 4 hours from my hometown, Toronto gets dark and nasty rain storms, nothing like those of where I grew up.  The storms here are gloomy and grey instead of pretty and colourful.  These outfit photos were taken last night after work, just as a terrible storm was brewing in our City.  I hope everyone made it through the disastrous flooding that hit Toronto last night, and here’s hoping for a safe and rain free rest of summer!

 

P.S. I’m linking up today with Lauren from Style Elixir for her weekly Style Sessions.

Toronto Fashion Week: Cobalt Copy and Pavoni

Creating outfits for Fashion Week was a little more difficult than I had anticipated.  I know, I know. . . such serious problems, right?!  I wanted to wear looks that I felt confident in but that also felt very “me”.  My outfits came together very last minute, mostly as I was running out the door each day.  On the last day of Fashion Week, I was feeling a little low on inspiration, and decided to “copy” myself and re-wear this head-to-toe cobalt number that I posted back in December.  Well, I guess I sensed that the colour of the night would be cobalt because the sweet Iva and wonderful Jane also both rocked this vibrant hue.

 

One of the most stunning shows during World Mastercard Fashion Week was by Pavoni.  The looks were luxurious and feminine, and the runway was full of lace, tulle, peplum, embroidery, sheer panels and sparkle. . . everything that I love.  Below are my favourite looks from the Pavoni Fall 2013 show.  I would kill to wear that black lace and peplum cocktail dress!  Visit FashionMagazine.com to see the full collection.
