No. 54



I'm always on the hunt for a good pair of shoes. And I mean always. Flat ones, especially, are my eye-catchers. I have a couple pairs of heels, but I rarely wear them as comfort is one of my cornerstones for dressing. The options in low-heeled shoes are endless, though, and they always add a certain cool, laidback factor. If I am lucky enough to collect these styles soon, I'm sure I'll be able to wear them into the fall as well. And this is just a teaser--when those full A/W collections drop, these Wishful Thinkings will be through the roof.

I'm a big fan of balance. In life, in work, in play... when it comes to my personal style, I employ the same ideal. When I first purchased this blush-pink top, it was one of the first colourful pieces I had purchased in a while, and so a little out of character for me. However, its out-of-the-boxness was also what allowed me to envision it fitting into my wardrobe, especially for the summer. Paired with the pleated skirt (a little more up my usual alley), I had what I considered to be a pretty, feminine outfit. However, I craved adding another element, something athletic or masculine-inspired, just to tip the scales a bit. Hence, the sneakers. 

I'm hugely partial to sneakers (as you may know), and the not-quite-gold-not-quite-silver sheen of this pair was perfect to add. Just like that, a piece that I wouldn't usually wear and a piece that I would was brought together with a usual suspect. Balance.

You know what I love about the t-shirt/denim combo? You can't go wrong with it. I'm sure we all know of its "effortlessness" and "ease," but I love its versatility--in that there are so many different ways in which to style the combination. Classic slim-fit T with dark skinnies: great. Oversized T with frayed denim culottes? Even better, in my opinion.

I'm a denim girl. I may even be a denim collector. I'm an avid shopper, but at the top of my list of items I cannot resist grabbing up is reworked denim: frayed, cropped, wide-leg, overall, you name it, I'm there. In fact, I'm currently without a good pair of skinny medium- and dark-blue jeans, which is, perhaps, an oversight, but if there's a season to experiment with the many different silhouettes of denim out there, it would be right in the thick of summer. It's so refreshing, I think, to revamp the t-shirt/denim look with pieces that step outside of the classic box, but still totally fit the label. This is the fun part of dressing: redefining.
