It’s summer time here in Toronto- but I still walk with a jacket. I have found that when it’s hot out the air condition is turned down and it’s colder inside – inside malls restaurants etc. I love a denim jacket. It’s sturdier and just goes well with everything. Also love this cropped style. It’s better for pear shapes.
White I find very easy to wear. Although it might show stains easier – it’s easier to clean. Tip- pack a stain remover.
Shoes: comfy walking shoes are a must. Especially when you’re visiting a city. The worst thing is to be bugged down and dreading to walk about because your feet hurt. While most comfortable shoes in the past weren’t very stylish- now there’s a slew of pretty stylish comfortable shoes. I love these Nike shoes, the material is a light color with a bit of a sparky goldish- silvery threat running through it. Which I find make a bit more stylish and dressy- and they best past is that they are super comfortable. It’s a lightweight mesh material – flyknit is what it’s called.
Thank you ..

The longer the flight, the more comfortable your pants should be! Pull up pants are soo great. I love that they are comfy but can still look cool and classy.
These are my very versatile green pull up pants from #express you’ve seen me post these pants so much in the past month. Love them!
This jacket I was so happy to find at #bloomingdales #bcbggeneration it’s cropped and unlined. Perfect for summer travel and for island life.
Shoes were a splurge. They are Hogan’s from #Tods. They are well made, great support. The color goes well with my wardrobe palette.
Thanks so much.
Scarves can be so much fun! A great way to spruce up a plain old something .. add a little pizazzzzz
Different sized scarves would work best for different applications, so for expample
A small square will be best to use around your neck, on a hand bag or on the loop of a pant.
Longer rectangular scarves are good for wearing as a belt, as a head tie or losely around your neck-
Here are a few ways I have styled them:
*As a belt
Had a little tea outing yesterday at a horse farm/garden center, absolutely beautiful. It’s a plant shop, there are stables and they also give riding lessons to kids.
It was my first time there, such a wonderful surprise. The setting was perfect, with lush greenery, lots of flowering plants and fruit trees, the horses were accessible, only reason I didn’t get real up and personal with them was because of the rain that left the ground muddy.. and well i didnt have the right shoe 🙂
It has been over the years, well-kept by owners who absolutely love what they do, and it shows.
I have had this little orange lace dress for a while now, never managed to have the opportunity to wear it. For tea i feel light and airy, lace and florals are appropriate. With my shorter dresses I prefer wearing flat shoes. The only thing I had handy, were these yellow strappy sandals. Seeing that it was becoming colorful I decided to use my green handbag.
Shoe: Old Navy
Clustered Pearl Earring: Dillard’s
I was soo happy when I found this jumpsuit. It’s exactly what I had in mind, for my personal style and my body type.
It’s long so good for my height.
It has no set waist band- so there’s no worry about it not sitting right.
It’s sleeveless, so I can have fun with it.
The v-neck is very flattering.
The fabric and style allow me to take it from casual to dressed up.I can wear it with flat slippers or with dressy strappy shoes. A definite for my next travel capsule wardrobe.
For me it was hard to find.. a flattering, well-fitting and versatile black jumpsuit. I am 5’9″ pear-shaped, and I often find jumpsuits to be odd fitting on my body type. The waist wouldn’t fit where it should, the length would be too short etc. I always do admire how it looks on others.
It’s a great travel piece because some styles can be very versatile you can take it from daytime to evening with a quick switch of shoes and accessories.With black you have a lot of fun with color.
Here are 3 styles:
1- Fun Jumpsuit
2- Stylish &/Or Fun
I don’t know about you.. but striped tops have become one of my wardrobe staples… Its fun and looks very crisp and cool. Especially for summer times. It goes well with different colors, and I personally would wear them with only high wasted bottoms.
This is just one example- but I also love a nice fitting long sleeved stripe as well, that get be tucked in, and or under a blazer.
With this particular cropped style- because the neckline is high, it makes accessorizing so much easier- as it really doesn’t need a necklace. So this makes for a great travel piece as well.
Here I have paired it with : Black,Green & Teal.
Cocktail party’s are very interesting 1- because you never know who you’re going to meet and 2- because you can have so much fun with your outfit.
The general guidelines are:
Keep it classy: avoid distressed looks, like torn jeans etc.
Do: Tailored clothing- like trousers, pencil skirts, cocktail length dresses- usually knee length and jumpers.
Here are some looks: Most of these are versatile pieces that you can have fun with and create many looks from:
