I love having fun mixing prints, especially leopard and stripes. Even though both are quite bold, I love the way they work together. I tend to keep everything else quite simple with dainty necklaces, rings, and bracelets. I absolutely love this initial heart necklace by TAudrey - I think its the perfect finishing touch to this outfit. 

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

A chambray shirt is one of my favourite wardrobe staples. It's such a versatile piece with endless styling options. Dress it up with a cocktail skirt or dress it down with a pair of jeans - the possibilities are endless. If you've been following my blog, you know that I am a huge fan of neutrals. I've paired this look with a camel coat (a must-have of mine) for a classic look. Do you like chambray as much as I do? Would love to hear where you purchased your chambray shirt and how you like to style it!

Crave vs. Save

CRAVE

1. Sweater / 2. Sunnies / 3. Earrings 4. Coat / 5. Skinny Ripped Jeans / 6. Bag / 7. Shoes


SAVE

1. Sweater / 2. Sunnies / 3. Earrings 4. Coat / 5. Skinny Ripped Jeans / 6. Bag / 7. Shoes

As much as I adore and appreciate the quality and design that goes into making luxury goods, my wallet thinks differently. I'm always inspired by what I see down the runway and love finding affordable ways to achieve a similar look. I must admit that I do splurge on items from time to time, but I always make sure they are pieces that are versatile and most importantly, practical. With Spring just around the corner (fingers crossed!) I decided to create two very similar transitional looks - the only major difference being the price tag associated with each item.

 I was on the search for black ripped jeans for what seemed like an eternity. All the pairs that I tried on were either  ripped in strange unflattering places, cut me off at the waist, or were downright uncomfortable. Regardless, I continued to search for the perfect pair until I stumbled upon these jeans at Topshop. I'd never tried their jeans on before, but was so pleasantly surprised by the way that they fit, felt, and looked. Needless to say,  I'm hooked.

What's your favourite brand of jeans? I'd love to hear!

Anyone who lives in Canada right now is more than familiar with the toe-numbing cold we have been experiencing as of late. With the weather in its -40's it was the perfect time for a little weekend escape. Everytime I go to Florida in February, its always cold and rainy. Thankfully, luck was on my side this time. Nothing but blue skies and sunshine - it was just what I needed. 

Are you planning a little getaway any time soon? I'd love to hear about it!
