Monochromatic Swimwear

June 25, 2014

ebb + flow :: monochromatic swimsuits

This year might be the first year in a looooong time that I bought a swimsuit that wasn’t all black or black with a dash of white. This is major for me. But in some sort of psych out I keep finding adorable black and white suits while perusing the interwebs. Curse you, internet history! You’re killing me! Here are four of my favorites:

summer must-have

I can never pull the trigger on nice sandals. For some reason, every year I schlep to Target mid-summer and buy whatever they have on clearance. I don’t know what what’s holding me back from investing in proper summer footwear, but this season I’ve decided to break the cycle. First up, have my eyes on a pair of Avarcas Pons. So many colors to choose from! I’ll have to head to Parc Boutique soon to try out some favorites in person. I’ll report back soon!

Wedding Season is Upon Us

May 13, 2014

Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping and the Save the Date collection in our home is bursting at the seams. That can only mean one thing, people: wedding season is upon us. In an attempt to not break the bank this summer dressing for weddings, I’ve been on the hunt for a few low-cost basics that I can dress up and down for rehearsal dinners, showers, weddings and other celebrations in honor of the lovebirds. So far, my favorite is this dress from the GAP. Definitely affordable and flattering, I’ve put this dress together two ways. Now I’ve got outfits for two occasions and only about nine others to figure out. Wish me luck!

Obviously, it’s easiest for me to shop at retailers that can be found at my place of work so these four retailers are often found in my wardrobe. Insider secret: Forever 21 has some pretty killer statement jewelry for CHEAP.

With my simple dresses, I often like to tie a chambray or plaid shirt around them for a new look. Let’s just call this denim on denim look what it is… Canadian tuxedo. I fully embrace that. Throw on a colorful nail polish and you’re ready to dance the night away!
