Overalls, Brandy Melville / Hat, Tank, Necklace, & Sunnies, Free People
The title “Green Thumb” seemed like the most appropriate way to summarize this series of photos. While it ties together the perfect olive color of my overalls and the complete farmer’s vibe going on, it is also the last phrase anybody should associate with me. Simply put, my thumbs are anything but green. But a girl can dream and dress up, right?
In all seriousness, this is a big day for me because I never thought I’d be able to wear overalls. Being blunt, I just don’t have the <<<twig-like>>> body shape you need most of the time to make them work. But alas I’ve finally found the perfect pair to reverse all of these beliefs. It took a while, but I’ve found my soulmate overalls and I’m never letting them go.
Trench, H&M / Hat, Forever 21 / Bag, Zara / Sneakers, Vans
I made it through the Ice Age! The heat finally broke through a couple of days ago and I can’t even remember the last time so many people were out and about in Montreal. I managed to shoot these pictures on my phone in the midst of spring errands (errands meaning any excuse to get outside). And of course on the first day of Spring I had to go all out, so I broke out the new love of my life – my grey faux suede fedora.
Happy Spring! (Or should I be saying summer? I go home for summer vacation in less than a week!)
Blazer, Topshop (similar) / Jacket, Earl’s Jeans (similar) / Turtleneck, Brandy Melville / Skirt, Forever 21 / Vans Sneakers
I’ve been eying these sneakers for a while now and when they went on sale I just couldn’t pass them up. To me, Vans scream California – they’re iconic to the area – and I know I’ll be get a ton of wear out of them this summer! This blazer is also a new favorite purchase of mine. It’s light and loose, and adds the perfect amount of polish to practically any outfit. It’s one of those things wear you just throw it over whatever you’re wearing without even thinking about it – I love those kinds of pieces!
I’m so lucky that I got to get out of the cold for a bit. It really allowed me to start gathering inspiration for spring and summer, and this outfit shows just that!
Coat, Cindy & Johnny* / Dress, Brandy Melville / Bag, Zara
I’m so excited to introduce Cindy & Johnny, a brand that has recently been brought to my attention and who generously gifted me this gorgeous spring coat! Although not my typical style, this coat called out to me as I browsed the Cindy & Johnny site with its structure and unique color blocking. The lightness of the coat will make it perfect for the spring and summer months – it’s so hard to find a nice coat for special occasions with its 80+ degrees out, but I’m confident I’ll be getting an unbelievable amount of use out of this one! I wanted the coat to stand out so I paired it with a simple little black dress and booties, along with a new Zara bag that I’m totally obsessed with!
