Summer Suede

Hi friends! I’m baaack with another outfit post! This outfit consists of two things I’ve been currently loving, camel suede and that darn button up skirt! Are you sick of seeing it yet? I promise that I’m keeping it at two ha-ha! This one in particular is white, and also from Topshop. I picked white because I don’t have any bottoms in my closet that are white. I was considering getting pants but this skirt just seemed like the perfect choice. My top is from Zara and it’s real suede leather. It’s got that weird leather smell but I love the look and the texture that it brings to my outfit. What do you think? Take a look!!

Current Obsession: Platform Sandals

c600x600

Hello everybody! If you can’t already tell from the photo and title above, I have a current obsession with platform sandals. Being tiny (also known as: short or 4’11”), I need all the height I can get!! Not only for my sake, but for my boyfriend’s sake! He’s like a foot taller than me.

I am so glad platform sandals are “a thing” now because they’re easy to walk in, they’re comfortable and they give me the height I need. Here are some sandals that I was attracted to while browsing Polyvore. A lot of them cost an arm and a leg, but a girl can dream. I am particularly attracted to the lace-up sandals, although they could potentially become a pain in the butt to take on and off.. What do you guys think of the platform sandal? Too chunky for your liking? Sticking with the Birkenstocks this summer? Are you a flip-flop kind of gal?

Let me know in the comments below xo

Currently Craving “Spring Edition”

Currently Craving Spring Edition

Hey everyone! I’m back with a “Currently Craving” post! I can’t quite remember the last time I posted one of these, but perhaps that’s a good thing (teehee). Right now, all I’ve been thinking about is Spring and Summer and all the new looks to look forward to! I really want this leather vest that Cara Delevingne is wearing in one of the Topshop ads displayed at work. Currently, I’ve been also craving a pair of Quay Australia sunglasses. They’ve collaborated with Pretty Little Liars’ Shay Mitchell (which is how I first discovered them), and now everyone and their mom is wearing them! Honestly though, their designs are so nice and affordable! I just hope they become available in Canada so that I won’t have to pay the crazy $30 shipping fees. At first I didn’t like the idea of platform slip-on sandals, but they’re growing on me. I’ve seen some pictures with girls rocking them and I can’t believe I’m saying it, but they look great! They’ve completely swayed me in terms of this trend. When I first found out about the 70s making a comeback, my first thought was definitely whether or not flared jeans would make a comeback as well. Of course they are! Topshop has designed a Jamie Flare and I’m eagerly waiting for them to show up at my location sometime soon! I’ve also been loving the 70s prints, I’m sure you’re sick of me talking about them by now. This shirt dress speaks for itself! Last but not least though, I’ve been DREAMING (AND I MEAN DREAMING) of the skirt in the bottom left of this photo. It is the skirt designed by Alexa Chung for AG Jeans. Ever since Alexa’s line came out, I’ve been drooling over this skirt and how much of a perfect staple it would be in my wardrobe. Topshop (of course .. *embarrassed by how much I talk about Topshop*) made their own version and I WANT IT SO BAD. SO BAD. SO BAD. *end rant*
