A chic look is what I always aim for, whether it’s looking for timeless pieces, or keep in tune with sophisticated colour hues. This look is one of my favourites and it’s so effortless to put together.
A good pair of comfy black jeans is perfect to transition from a daytime activity to an evening date. This high-waisted pair is from Old Navy, probably one of my favourite stores for pants because I’m petite and love a good stretch and these are just it! I also have a small waist and wide hips so their petite size complements my figure. I must admit, I still have to hem a good two to three inches of them to get them to fall at my ankles (for reference, I’m 5’1).
For this look, I typically go for a white button-down collared blouse but any white top will do the trick. I love the detailing on this cotton top I got from Forever 21. It just screams out spring! It’s more of a crop top so pairing it with these high-waisted jeans keeps the look classy. It also gives the illusion that my legs are longer than they are.
The trench coat is a #WinnersFabFind. I’m so happy I found it because it’s a great lightweight and in-between season coat. It also falls just under my butt so it’s still classy but casual. It’s also a nude colour so it can be dressed up or down.
The sunglasses are from Miniso, a little Japanese store that recently opened in Montreal. Now, although people have said that I have a great face for sunglasses, I would beg to differ. If you saw my post on my Bonlook glasses, I have already eluded to the fact that I have a narrow face and it’s difficult to find frames that don’t me look bug-eyed. I must have tried on every single pair in that store but ended up settling for these then, but don’t regret it now! I’m practically always wearing these ones and I can’t get over the fact that they were only $5!
The black accessories, pumps and handbag, are also from Winners. I’m so happy I found these pointed toe pumps because they are the epitome of class, but mainly because they are Marc Fisher shoes. All the footwear that I’ve purchased from the brand are so comfortable and I don’t need to break them in. It’s hard for me to find good shoes because I have wide feet, but these don’t slow me down!
I’ve been looking for a nice bucket bag for some time and when I saw this Ralph Lauren one in-store, I knew I had to get it. I hold it from the shorter handle, but like the fact that I can wear it as a crossbody if I need my hands free. It’s spacious enough to carry my essentials without being too bulky.
