Polka dots

Statement Pieces2014-08-24-011


Let me introduce you to my very first peplum top! I have seen this style on other women and its pretty hit and miss, the style doesn’t suit everyone so I was a little hesitant to try it out. It was first and foremost the polka dots that had captured my attention. Because I’m a strong believer that you don’t know until you try, I conveniently had on the perfect pair of jeggings by Jones New York at the time which makes this top pop!

As much as I’d like to classify Cleo as an “older” brand, one that is typically not worn by my generation, this beautiful, not to mention super comfortable top completely proves me wrong! I also took some inspiration from my favourite follows on Instagram by finishing the outfit with a really bold blue statement necklace.

 

Wednesday Thrifting!

For me there is no better way to unwind and relax after work than sifting through racks at a thrift store. Fortunately for me the Value Village is on my route home! Tonight I stopped in and whisked lightly through my favourite sections: dresses, blouses, skirts and shoes. I managed to find some super cute prints in my rummaging at pretty decent prices – especially at 30% off with my full stamp card!

I had great success in finding a pair of brand new fleshtone/nude pumps from Aldo in my size. I typically wear flats all day at work, which by the end of the day offer no heel support what-so-ever. The first thing I thought when I slipped my foot in was: “My gosh, these are actually more comfortable than the flats I’m wearing!”
