I don’t know about you, but I am so not ready to let go of Summer.  I will be wearing my sleeveless tops, short skirts and white shoes for as long as the weather will possibly allow.  Since this pretty peplum top is bulky, I’m not sure yet if I can layer it in the Winter, so I’m trying to get as much use out of it before the cold weather hits.

 

I’m really excited to be guest posting for the fabulous new mamma Kira, over at her blog Northern Style Exposure while she takes a little blogging break to enjoy the new little man in her life.  In that post, I’m also wearing a summer dress, however I will definitely be layering that piece in the winter with cardigans, blazers and tights.  Please head over to Northern Style Exposure to check it out!

 

How about you?  Are you hanging on to the last bits of Summer, or are you welcoming Fall/Winter with open arms?

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

 

Last week I shared my love for one of Fall’s hottest trends, the grid print.  Today I’m wearing a pair of Gap grid printed pants, which are one of my favorite pairs of printed pants I’ve ever purchased.  I was fearful that the large pattern would make my lower half look even larger, but I think the dark navy color helps balance out the over-sized windowpane print.

 

Cheers to a great start to everyone’s week!

 

 

 

What’s the Skinny?

It’s funny how our personal style changes over the years.  Several years ago, I wouldn’t have been caught dead in skinny jeans.  I’m a curvy girl, and after trying on a couple of pairs of skinnies, I quickly decided that the shape and cut did not flatter my figure.  I was “anti-skinny”.  Fast forward a few years to 2010, and it was nearly impossible to find anything but skinny jeans in stores.  Flares and boot cuts were hard to find, and somehow felt dated.  I had no choice but to conquer my “skinny” fear and squeeze my lady curves into another pair of skinnies.

 

I soon realized that depending on the brand, cut of the top half of the jeans and the weight of the denim, that skinnies could actually flatter my curvy shape.  Fast forward a few more years to 2013, and now I feel that skinnies are the style that flatter my figure the most!  Go figure.

 

I’m especially loving my Old Navy skinnies, and find that their cuts and shapes look really great on women with curves.  Plus, the price is awesome!  All of Old Navy’s skinny jeans are currently on sale until October 2, with prices starting at only $19!  Crazy!  They have so many fabulous prints, colours and textures.  I was immediately drawn to this fabulous floral pair I’m wearing, and I just love the subtle blue-on-blue print.
