These shorts are probably one of my most worn items in my closet,  I bought them a couple years ago by now, but I am still constantly going back to them again and again!  I just love anything that glitters, I cannot resist.  If there is one drawback about my gold sequin pair it’s that they don’t have pockets – I hate not having pockets!  Sometimes when I get dressed I just go for all my favourite things- in this case simple silver jewelry from the Dominican Republic, classic aviators and a patent leather statement clutch pair with polka dots perfectly to complement my sparkling shorts! Metallic heels finish the look for polished city style that’s classic and cool.

I am in love with this blouse, the style is my absolute favourite- when shopping for tunic blouses I often go up a size so they will drape nicer and fall just a little longer.  My other requirements for finding the perfect blouse is 3/4 length sleeves and half button-down – the contrasting black and white  and the polka-dot print had me sold.  I love a chiffon blouse and shorts for summer, its chic and cool!

EMERALD CITY

EMERALD IS THE COLOR RULING THE FASHION WORLD AT THE MOMENT…

Which is great news for me because I love wearing jewel tones, particularly Emerald! (Fun Fact: its also my mom’s birthstone) Would you believe that I found this beautiful Steve Madden cape at Winners (around this time last year) on sale for only $24.99!? Obviously that was not a deal to be passed up!!!

I was so excited that I immediately texted my girlfriends that I had bought the most beautiful cape, their response was significantly less enthusiastic than I expected. Clearly they didn’t get it, I mean the color, the tailoring, the price – it was perfect! Truly, they thought I meant something a little more batman-esque. A cape is one of the absolute cutest ways (or most badass, in Batman’s case) to keep warm. Just keep the rest of the outfit simple to let it stand out. Thankfully, my hair is finally getting long enough to make a nice bun! I love being able to put it up in a sock bun in just minutes and look perfectly pulled together!

I really like that the VS one has a hood, like little red riding hood! Which is your favourite? Oh, and did anyone see Oz, the Great and Powerful? What did you think?!
