Trendspotting: Denim Skirts

Well the weather has finally warmed up considerably, and it is FINALLY time to pack up your winter clothes and pull out your summer wardrobe.  While I rarely wear dresses and skirts during the colder months, they become a staple for me once the temperatures start to rise. One of my favourite types of skirts to rock during the summer months has always been the denim skirt, but over the past few years it has fallen by the wayside as I haven’t found one that I like.  That is about to change. I am so excited to see denim skirts come back to the forefront of summer fashion staples, and I especially love the high low trend that many brands are currently showing.  Paired with a oversized collar shirt, t-shirt or long sleeves a denim skirt looks fabulous with so many closet basics, which makes it a great piece to rock for many different occasions.  Here are some of my favourite looks featuring the denim skirt:

My Favourite Closet Staple

Hi Everyone!

according to the calendar it is finally spring, and while in reality the cold weather has decided to stick around a little longer (as I write this, it is currently pouring ice rain and snow is expected shortly) I am ready to start shedding a few layers of clothing.  Closet staples are a personal thing that depend on your lifestyle and fashion needs but there are a few key items that work in most people’s wardrobe – a white t-shirt and a well fitting pair of jeans are  perfect examples of this.  Then there is my favourite closet staple – a white dress shirt.  This key item has the ability to elevate any look that you may be rocking, be it classic, sexy, conservative or modern to name a few.  I prefer my dress shirts to be loose fitting so that I can easily half tuck it into jeans or dress pants.  Here are a few of my favourite looks featuring the white dress shirt:

‘Tis The Season To Sparkle and Shine

Aside from the fantastic food, one of my favourite things about the holiday season is the fabulous fashion.  Beautiful reds, glittering golds and shimmering sparkle suddenly become acceptable everyday attire during the festive season and I love it! While holiday dressing is not for the faint of heart, it is the perfect opportunity to have some fashionable fun and add something bold and fresh to your wardrobe.  Here is some festive fashion inspiration if you are still searching for the perfect holiday look:

Trendspotting – Fall Florals

Floral patterned clothing is normally reserved for spring.  They add a freshness and a softness to the wearer’s outfit marking the change of seasons after a cold hard winter.  My personal style tends to be a little bit more simple and edgy so florals rarely make an appearance in my wardrobe – the one exception is if I find a darker floral pattern that I can integrate into my wardrobe.  Thankfully this fall darker florals are trending in a big way.  From jackets and dresses to blouses and bombers, fall florals are everywhere this season.  The darker, more muted colours blend seamlessly with other fall trends such as red clothing and accessories , velvet and gorgeous suiting 

Fall florals can work for most people’s styles – the key is to pair it with things that you already own and love.  I love to toughen up the look by pairing it with darker denim, leather jackets or leggings and booties.  Here are some of my favourite fall floral looks this season.
