Happy Monday Everyone!  I have four thoughts to share about this outfit:

 

1.  At first I wasn’t sure if the different shades of creamy whites worked together, but as time passed throughout the day and I caught more and more glimpses of myself in the mirror, I decided that I really liked this combination.  It feels just perfect for summer.

 

2.  For those of you not familiar with Purple Paparazzi, it’s a gorgeous collection of handmade jewellery by one of the sweetest women I’ve met through blogging so far, Amber.  She was generous enough to let me select a few pieces from her collection, and my eye went straight for her Golden Bronze necklace made from vintage gold beads. I can’t wait to share the beautiful bracelets she sent me too.

 

3. My top button on my shirt was undone for all of these photos, and of course, my “photographer” didn’t tell me. When I asked him later when I saw the photos, he said “Oh, I thought you knew.”  Sigh.

 

4. Today is the last day to enter my KORET new york handbag giveaway. Here I’m wearing the Astor Top Handle in beige, but you get to select any bag from the Spring/Summer collection that you want!  How awesome is that?! Click here to enter.

Over the years I have learned what particular styles, colours and fabrications look good on my body type, and which ones rarely flatter my shape.  This H&M mint eyelet skirt and peplum top break 2 of my “avoid at all costs” rules: 1. Stay away from satin, especially across my thighs, and 2. No skirt lengths below the bottom of my knee. I was so obsessed with the other trends in these pieces (mint, peplum and eyelet) that I had to try them on, even though I knew it was going to end in utter disappointment.  Shockingly, they didn’t look half bad.  What are some of your “do not buy” rules?
