OOTD: Floral Everything and Musings on Mom Jeans

SO MY FLORAL OBSESSION HAS REACHED A WHOLE NEW LEVEL TODAY! I'm definitely starting to feel the effects of how colourful my outfit is. I'm also a little hopped up on caffeine, sunshine, and happiness because it's my day off! I recently purchased a floral skort (yes, a skort) and matching flowy top from DailyLook and I am IN LOVE with the ensemble. It's matchy-matchy and simply amazing. My mom had a similar outfit in the early 90s (see photo below.) She was feeling under the weather in this picture, but I'm sharing it anyways because she still looks super pretty. July 4 - Mom Oh, how I love that the 90s look is coming back! Oh, how I wish my mom had kept ALL of her clothing. My fellow girls--do you remember watching the Oprah show about "mom jeans" with your mom in the early 2000s? Mom jeans were the ultimate embarrassment to teenage girls everywhere. Daughters united and lobbied to abolish high-waist, flat-bum mom jeans in favour of low-rise flares and skinnies. Now mom jeans are making a comeback and I am so sorry for the forced intervention and the clothing giveaway trips that ensued. Now I have to buy the same faded jeans for three times the price. Fashion is funny that way. July 4 - Colourful July 4 - Flower July 4 - Outside July 4 - With dog

OOTD: That Hi-Lo Skirt Again

As I was uploading the photos for this blog post, I remembered and subsequently disregarded an important fact: I wore pretty much the same outfit in my last blog post. Oops. There's definitely something to be said about the versatility of this Forever 21 skirt; it can be worn with a crop top to the beach OR with a blouse to the office! Today I hurriedly paired it with a simple white button-up, a flashy belt, and nude heels. Same skirt, entirely different feel. A lot of my work outfits comprise of repeat old favourites with new pieces thrown in. Creativity is key when you're trying to be frugal! I've had this skirt and this blouse for a couple of seasons; however, the shoes and the belt are brand new. Note to self: Wear something less polka-dotty next time. Happy Wednesday everyone! July 2 - Belt July 2 - SideJuly 2 - Polka
