Accessories Rule

One of the key rules to great style or unique style is adding one more accessory to your outfit. Today I doubled up on bracelets and rings.

I wear a Fitbit (almost) everyday because it reminds to move more during the day. I have several Fitbit bracelets in different colours so I can change it up to match my OOTD. Today I chose lime green to go with my dress. I also added 3 Cloisonée bracelets from a set of 7 that I purchased at Art Institute gift shop in Chicago. Museums and art galleries are always great places to find unique jewellery. The ring (not clearly shown) is multi coloured crystals.

On my other hand I kept is simple – all Swarovski tones of blue.

Keep this tip in mind before heading out and add one more accessory to your outfit.


Flat Lay Spring – Part 3

The Whole Look

For this final installment of flat lay spring I laid out some outfit choices. These are my favourite apparel colours because all of them work well together. Orange with navy, turquoise or grey is unexpected and I find it softer than red. It also is amazing with my skin tone.

From Left

This navy blazer in heavy pique cotton was a steal at $8 from Ann Taylor Factory Store. IT was on the clearance rack with additional mark downs. I love the polka dot lining! The skirt is also Ann Taylor and I bought it New York. The pattern is very graphic and surprisingly it goes with a lot because of the neutral beige background of the print. These turquoise jeans are my favourite for spring. They are Not Your Daughter’s Jeans and fit me perfectly. I have had them for a couple of years and they have slightly faded but also become super soft. The t-shirt is Joe Fresh and the print caught my eye because I just recently started pairing orange and grey.

Putting it all together

Here’s how the 3 installments look together. I’m wearing the taupe comfort sandals from Part 2 with this outfit.





The first Black Friday item I chose to wear was this great jacket from Anthropologie. The cuffs are what drew me in and then I loved the distressed look to the fabric and the trims. The plaid fabric used in the back really sets this piece apart from other jackets.

I wearing it today with a grey tee from Ann Taylor Loft and a faux pearl necklace from Target. Not shown are the dark wash NYDJ skinnies and navy wedge booties from Cole Hahn.

Tomorrow the cat will be out of the bag!
