coloured denim.

i’m one of those people who loves to wear black.  to me, you can never be wearing too much of it.  black shirt, black pants, black shoes, black scarf?…i’m in!

despite my love for a simple all black outfit, now that’s it’s warming up, i feel obligated to switch up my look here and there and add some colour.  in an effort to diversify my wardrobe, i’ve recently become obsessed with coloured denim.

since my work attire often revolves around blue skinny jeans, adding a pair of coloured denim jeans into the mix is a nice and easy way to add a pop of colour to my outfit without putting in too much effort.

not only am i loving this look for myself, but i’ve also noticed it all over the runway (and on celebrities) this year, paired with all kinds of shoes and tops.  this look is perfect because it’s such a versatile style that can be both dressed and down depending on the occasion.

the coloured denim trend is an effortless and comfortable way to keep your style on point without having to be a serious fashionista to pull it off.  so, this spring, don’t be afraid to jump in and add a splash of colour to your wardrobe.

spring shoes.

since the middle of winter, i’ve been daydreaming about the day when i no longer have to trudge around the city in heavy boots.  although that day hasn’t quite come yet, when the warm weather does finally appear, i can look forward to slipping my toes into these peep-toe, chunky-heeled shoe.

this type of shoe, which you can find in many variations (think perforated, sandal-style, metallic), is one of spring 2014’s biggest trends.  i love this look because not only is it super stylish, but the heel isn’t too high or skinny that your feet kill by the end of the day, and not too low that it looks like an ugly, grandma kitten heel (can you tell i hate kitten heels?).

even though my mother may disagree, a girl truly can never have too many pairs of shoes;  with this look carrying over into summer and fall, my collection of chunky heeled shoes has just begun.

this necklace.

i was introduced to stella & dot a couple years ago and it was like love at first sight.

for those of you who aren’t familiar with this amazing jewelry company, their products can only be bought online or through privately held trunk shows.  since i have yet to ever attend a trunk show (hello friends, someone hold one please!), i find myself on the stella & dot site more than i’d like to admit, ogling the beautiful necklaces, bracelets, and rings through my computer screen.

knowing my love for this jewelry, my amazing sister bought me this ‘on the mark’ necklace for christmas last year.  i wear this gold arrow necklace every day and have never heard so many compliments from friends and strangers, alike.  it’s the perfect necklace to dress up for a night out or dress down with jeans and a baggy sweater.  you can wear this piece layered with other necklaces, or for a more simplistic look, let the necklace stand out on its own.  when it comes to stella & dot, the price is low, but the quality is high; you will never regret buying any of their pieces.

i have been debating holding a trunk show for quite some time now, but until i take the plunge and have my own showing, i will continue to lust over countless pieces that i can’t wait to add to my stella & dot collection some day.
