Last week, I was lucky enough to have two special people visit me in Toronto . . . my Mom and Dad.  We spent a couple days shopping, eating and sightseeing.  My Mom and I took in the Christian Louboutin exhibit at the Design Exchange.  If you’re in the area and you haven’t been, I highly recommend visiting before the exhibit closes on September 15.  So many gorgeous shoes!

 

My Mom also spoiled me with an early birthday present . . . this gorgeous white perforated leather Coach handbag.  I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect white bag for months, and finally found it.  Thanks Mom!

Shirt: Old Navy (c/o). Jeans: Old Navy (c/o). Hat: J.CrewHandBag: Chanel. Shoes: Jimmy Choo. Rings: BCBG, Stella & Dot, unknown. Sunglasses: Gucci.

 

Denim on denim has been a big trend for a few seasons now, and it looks like it’s still going strong for Fall.  I’m really excited to be partnering with Old Navy to showcase this trend and how I wear my “Canadian Tuxedo” (I just love that phrase!).  

 

Old Navy offers a huge selection and variety of jeans.  I’m wearing The Sweetheart which is made especially for us curvy ladies, cut with a smaller waist and a little extra room in the thigh.  I love the subtle distressing on this pair, and really love the fact that they come in a petite length, in addition to regular and tall.  Old Navy has a ton of styles and colours of denim, and the best part is that they are having an awesome sale on jeans until August 29th, with prices starting at $19!  Yes, that’s right, I said $19 for a pair of jeans!  You really can’t beat that!

 

I must also point out that the denim shirt I’m wearing is probably the most perfect denim shirt I’ve ever found.  I usually stick to chambray because the material is a bit lighter, but I really liked the light wash on this shirt so I decided to try it on.  I was so pleased with the cut and fit, and the medium weight to the denim is actually great for the cooler summer nights we’ve been experiencing here in Toronto.  This shirt has very quickly become a staple in my closet.

 

Please note this post was sponsored by Old Navy, however all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.  I personally selected the merchandise I’m wearing and featuring.  I only partner with brands that I firmly believe in, that represent my personal style and that I would fully recommend.

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!
