As I’m sure anyone who visits here regularly would notice, I have a weakness for color.  My life motto might as well be the same as Kate Spade’s; Live Colorfully.  But I certainly love a great neutral combo just as much as the next girly-girl.  I picked up these beautiful neutral French Connection kitten heels at the opening of DSW in Canada last week, and couldn’t wait to wear them.  I want to send out a huge thank you to everyone who entered the DSW Canada $100 gift card giveaway last week, and a big congratulations goes out to the winner, Danielle F!

 

I also recently added this fabulous classic Daniel Wellington watch to my collection, thanks to the lovely people over at DW.  As a small treat, they are offering everyone 15% off at danielwellington.com with the code ‘crazystylelove’, until September 15.

Dress: Jacob (c/o). Jacket: J.Crew. Handbag: Coach. Shoes: Nine West (US link)(Canadian link). Sunglasses: Gucci. Watch: Michael Kors (also available here). Rings: ASOS, Coach. Belt: Forever 21.

 

I think it’s pretty obvious that I’m a “dress” girl.  They make me feel extra girly and flatter my figure more often than pants.  I’m always on the hunt for daytime dresses that pull double duty and are dressy enough for work but casual enough to wear shopping or sightseeing on weekends.  This striped dress I found at Jacob is a perfect example of a “casual-dressy” dress.  It looks just as cute worn with heels or flats.

J. Crew Panama Hat, Crop Top, Cobalt Midi Skirt, Coach Mint Penny Bag, White Nine West Pumps

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!
