It’s casual Friday here at Mode Xlusive! What are you wearing?
Don’t you just love that denim jackets are in right now! I love how they are a cross between a tailored blazer and a cozy sweater. They can make gorgeous dresses casual or amp up a lazy sweater and tank top. Denim is also great for temperature control (I’m always hot, so this is important for me). The cotton is breathable and warm at the same time. A short jacket that hits you at your waist can do wonders for your figure and help accentuate the most narrow part of your body. A good stretchy denim will be comfortable and offer a more structured look.
Black and blue shall never been seen, except in the washing machine!
Have you ever heard of this non-sense? I love mixing blue and black… and breaking fashion rules! I love the black accessories in this outfit too, especially this black patent leather Gucci purse with a tassel! You know I have a weakness for tassels. My black Michael Kors strappy sandals are oh-so gorgeous and oh-so comfortable! They are a mix of edgy and dressy, sort of like the denim jacket.
This was part of a series of photos that I did with Kristy Chapman Photography. Enjoy!
In these pictures, I am wearing:
It’s getting chilly out there, and although I hate to admit it… Summer is coming to an end faster than we can say “hell no!”
I love this comfy transition look, perfect for fall or even spring. The light weight cotton parachute pants (forever 21+), the striped blazer (Marshalls) and a pop of colour in my yellow pumps, reminds us that the sun is still around.
A nude tone leather bag (mine is a Marc Jacobs purchased on Valamode.com) is also a versatile and classic accessory every girl needs to compete her look.
Wear this look to work, or pull it off for a dinner date with the gals. You are sure to remain warm, comfortable, relaxed and on point for your next occasion.
A few weeks ago, Erica Wark shared a post on 7 Surprising Ways to Build a Better Outfit using a Wild Card clothing item. I was particularly fond of the floral print and striped shirt combination.
Here is me pulling this look off with a custom size Rachel Sin Dolce Rose Skirt. I discovered Rachel Sin at the 2015 Velo Vogue fashion show hosted by XO Velo and had to have this skirt! I paired it with a stripe H&M top and black suede BCBG pumps to complete my look.
Getting lots of compliments at work today. What do you think of pairing two bold patterns? I say… “DO IT!”
Do you remember this Ganni blouse I bought at Vincent a few month ago? Well, I am still in love with it and wear it all the time. Work, night out, casual… it doesn’t matter, this blouse is the bomb diggity.
I have never owned such a versatile piece of clothing. It has great texture and a range of soft colours that go well with everything from denim to pale pink skirts and white lace shorts.
I rarely know what to pair with this blouse, because it inspires so many ideas. So, I had to create this post and show you how you can style one blouse, 4 ways! Enjoy!
