Summer in the City

I spent the day in Vancouver with the best friend (who is behind the lens for these photos), shopping, gallivanting, and doing what I do best: drooling over pieces that I can not afford in Holt Renfrew. It was one of those days where the weather was seemingly unpredictable, so I opted to layer pieces in my outfit. On top, I wore a thrifted sweater over my lightweight, white button-down from Japan. On the bottom, I opted for my simple indigo skinny jeans from H&M. I loved how the forest green and indigo played together, and the white brought a crisp feel to the ensemble. And, really, it was ridiculously comfortable. When walking for hours on end, one tends to aim for optimal comfort.

List of complete items worn here will be posted below! Hope you all are enjoying the weather, where ever you are!

Until next time,

Jasmine.

OOTD: Spring is on it’s Way

Image

The one thing I both love and hate about living on the west coast is the constant showers of rain. It can be peaceful and tranquil at one moment, and then transform into a hideous monster of a storm the next. Today was, unfortunately, one of those days, hence why the shots are taken in two separate places: one in-door and one out. 

Therefore, I wanted to channel the spirit of a west coast spring, while sticking to a trend that I absolutely love for S/W 2013: pastels. This is where my mint, almost sea foam green blazer came into play. It’s comfortable and chic, making it the perfect statement piece to throw on over a neutral outfit.  For extra comfort, I wore my trusty black maxi, and slipped on my Jeffrey Campbell Litas for additional height. My accessories are simple; I wanted to keep it minimal. Personally, I might even take off the necklace I had worn, to keep it even cleaner. 

Please forgive my hideous facial expressions in both shots. It was cold and wet and I am not a model. Probably never will be. I should smile more.

Thanks once again to the amazing Sonia for making me look fantastic and tall in these photos (seriously I look like an amazon compared to my in real life height). She’s such a trooper, standing out in the cold and wet just to get a few good shots! You’re the best.

OOTD: An Ode to Nature

A mix of burgundy hues, forest greens, and bright whites are just the right combination of winter and spring, perfect for this February day. I paired a simple chambray shirt under a knit white sweater and threw on a forest … Continue reading
