A few observations. First, I feel so 80’s today with my new vest. Second, I might be obsessed with denim… hahaha
Today’s proutfit is brought to you by my new Old Navy light wash denim vest, perfect to hide chubs and rolls! he he We can’t all be sleek but we sure can try and hide our flaws!
This cut is perfect for me as it hits high, right at my waistline and really helps accentuate it. For a more pear shaped body type, or if you are blessed with a booty, I would recommend a longer version, the Plus Denim Vest.
These vests are perfect for the summer. They keep you cool, but covered. Give you a more tailored finish without being too restricting and best of all, as I mentioned above… it helps to hide imperfections. I will be wearing it with skirts and dresses./.. so watch out!
Yes, I have imperfections. It doesn’t mean that I hate myself. I am just on a mission to find flattering clothes and help you do the same!
Do you have a go-to favourite outfit that you know will work? For me this year it’s totally the denim blouse (also called chambray) with a full skirt. Something casual on top paired with something feminine on the bottom. I totally love that look. You will see me repeat-offending this one for sure. Guilty.
I am standing outside of the Mayfair Theater in Old Ottawa South on Bank Street. It also started snowing that day! I was frozen, but kept my composure… at least I tried to! My proudest moment was getting so many looks and a few honks. It’s kind of corny, but it made me feel important and sexy! haha
If you look at my closet, you’ll see that I don’t have a lot of colour. I am quite picky when it comes to colours, to be honest. But I had a soft spot for the bright orange pops of colour on this blue Banana Republic Dress. I had to have it! You can’t see it in this picture, but the back of the dress is open. The dress is split at the waist, so you can get a glimpse of the low back with a soft breeze. Very sexy.
I paired the dress with a classic denim jacket (Old Navy), cobalt blue pumps (Nine West) and a vintage snake skin clutch (AMH Style), and my idea of a pop of colour for makeup is my favourite lipstick “Morange” (from MAC).
I love the juxtaposition of the bright colours of the dress and graffiti along side the drab trees and tones in this alley (Old Ottawa South at Bank Street and Sunnyside Ave).
A big thank you to John Finnigan-lin for these gorgeous shots! xox
