Converse White Chuck Taylor Sneakers

Jacket: Club Monaco. Peplum Top: Zara (similar). Jeans: H&M. Shoes: Converse (thanks to JD Sports!). Handbag: Balenciaga. Sunglasses: Chanel. Rings: BCBG, Stella & Dot.

 

This outfit incorporates several new summer favorites in my wardrobe.

 

1. Converse Chuck Taylor’s:  A staple in my childhood, teenage years, and twenties, I’ve owned the Converse Chuck Taylor’s in every colour in the rainbow.  Now in my 30’s, classic white is perfect for my current style.

 

2. Club Monaco Jacket:  I absolutely adore the shape of this jacket.  With black and white match-with-everything stripes, I know I will get a ton of wear out of this great piece.

 

3. Chanel Sunglasses:  A little retro, and a whole lotta fun, it was love at first sight with these Chanel shades. These will definitely be my summer sunglasses of choice.

The Summer of This Dress

Crazy Style Love White Dress

Jacket:  Gap (similar). Dress: French Connection. Booties: Aldo (on major sale!). Handbag: Balenciaga (similar). Rings: Stella & Dot. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I am embarrassed to admit that I’ve had this beautiful dress for many years, and this is the first time that I’ve worn it!  I finally donned this dress last week to an event I attended on the gorgeous rooftop of the Thompson Hotel in Toronto, with it’s stunning views of Downtown.  Too bad I forgot to bring my camera as usual.

 

I purchased this dress in Montreal 3 or 4 years ago, and I made the classic mistake that so many women make.  It was on sale and this was the last size, so I purchased it a 1/2 size too small with the intention of losing 5 lbs to fit into it.  Well, of course the opposite happened.  I gained some weight over the years and it became too tight.  I’m pleased to say that it finally fits again, and I’ve decided that this will be the summer of this dress.  I’m determined to wear it every opportunity I get to make up for the years of hanging in my closet unworm.  This dress just feels like summer to me, and I love that I feel extra girly when wearing it.  Please tell me I’m not the only one who has purchased a dress that was slightly too small just because it was on sale (and of course, it was fabulous)?

Top: J.Crew (on sale!). Skirt: Wilfred – last seen here. Shoes: Kate Spade (similar with bows!). Handbag: Balenciaga. Necklace: The Bay. Ring: Stella & Dot. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

Every time I wear this necklace, I get a ton of comments on it.  Some are positive, usually from women.  Others, not so much.  I get a lot of those “wow, look at that necklace”, or “that’s some necklace” comments that I’m pretty sure are not meant to be compliments.  I can’t tell you how many “Mr. T” and “I pity the fool” remarks I’ve received, mostly from men (including my Man, over and over and over again).

 

Well, I love this necklace, and it always makes me feel ultra glam.  I wore this outfit to work last week, then out to an event.  Tomorrow I’ll share the details of the event I attended, but until then, I hope you all have  a wonderful Tuesday!
