Happy 4th of July to those of you who are American ! 🇺🇸
Today’s outfit of the day features these brand new jeans I just purchased from Zara. I’m in love with these embroidered jeans but I had such a hard time getting the sizing right! I first bought these jeans in a size 6 after trying on a size 4 in store and finding it too small. I just bought a size 6 without trying them on again assuming it would fit ( Zara changeroom lines are massive). I have two other pairs of jeans from Zara- both in size 6- one pair fits comfortably and one pair is massive on my hips. When I got home and put the jeans on, I found them to be tiny! I was so dissapointed and I brought them in a couple days later to exchange the size 6 for an 8. The size 8 fits me but it’s a tad loose around the waist. Has anyone else had weird sizing issues with Zara brand jeans or is it just me? 😝 Anyways, the jeans are still really cute and there’s no way I’m returning them again!
The grey cropped tank top I’m wearing is from Urban Outfitters, and the shoes are the Ruffle mules from Irene’s Story that I’ve been getting a lot of wear out of this summer. I decided to accessorize the outfit with this black wrap around string choker from Urban Outfitters.
Today’s outfit of the day for some finally summer-like weather features this adorable “babes club” t shirt from Forever 21. I love the big pink lettering (it kind of reminds me of Barbie) and I find it fun and a little retro. I tucked it into my Levi’s Jean shorts for a casual summer day look.
Today was a second day of rain, hail, and cold, which is really out of the ordinary for June, even in Canada. This has lead me to wear a lot of long sleeves and pants over the past week, which makes me so sad because I have so many summer clothes!
Today’s outfit of the day was this casual black high kneck tank top from Urban Outfitters and these light blue distressed boyfriend jeans from Lucky Brand. I love Lucky Brand jeans; they are so comfortable and such good quality. Also- all Lucky Brand jeans have an insert under the zipper that reads “Lucky you” when unzipped which I find clever and amusing. 😂
I tied my jeans around the waist with a simple black leather belt from h&m which was on sale recently for under 15 dollars.
I finished off the look with a pair of pink mule shoes from a small boutique in California. They are made by a company called Qupid.
Today’s outfit of the day features this adorable strapless sunflower patterned romper from h&m. It is super comfy and cute and best of all, it was under 20 dollars! An amazing purchase and I plan on taking more pictures in this outfit later on in the summer! Sadly I only got to wear this outfit for a short while today as it rained on and off all afternoon where I live and became quite cold in the late afternoon. : (
American Eagle has been killing it recently ! I’ve been in twice in the last couple weeks and not only were the prices on everything marked down, but their summer clothing collection was adorable! I found two adorable summer tank tops for under $20 each, and this lovely white maxi dress was on clearance for less than $50! I’ve been impressed with the quality of the clothing I’ve purchased there recently as well! Well worth the money! This dress in particular is very well made, with a crochet top half, and a very full middle and bottom – with no awkward see through skirt as I find is common in many white maxi dresses of a similar style. I had to get the bottom hemmed as this was a size small as it was the last dress in stock and I usually wear a size extra small as I’m tiny (5’0). I was able to have it hemmed without ruining the look of the dress which was nice.
Today’s outfit of the day is this gorgeous romper that I purchased in Marina Del Rey, California last year. The pattern is very beachy and fun and the material is thin which is good for hot days.
These photos were taken in sunny Marina Del Rey, California a while back, as the weather where I am today was not permitting me to take any outdoor photographs.
