Chillin Out Max & Relaxin All Cool

It’s almost the long weekend and I’m so excited!  Time to relax and be a bum.  When I’m not caring too much about my outfit, I usually wear something like this.  Boyfriend jeans, black v-neck t-shirt, and straw fedora all from Joe Fresh; paired with white canvas shoes from Wal-Mart ($8) and a basic grey cardigan from some random store for $12.  I plan on hitting the beach, reading, and catching up with friends and familia.  What are you up to?  JD

Tight White Jeans

I won’t name any names, but when I was in high school there was a guy who wore tight white jeans on every out-of-uniform day. He was bold. But not exactly stylish. That’s mean, I know.
For years every time I saw white jeans I thought of him and couldn’t bring myself to buy a pair, until now. I bought this pair from Joe Fresh for $19 and I love them! My polka dot top is from H&M; grey blazer is from Zara; and belt is from a clothing swap. These peep toe wedge shoes are by Steve Madden from Capezio on Bloor St. They were hiding in my closet so it was a treat to wear them again. I think I’m cured from not liking white jeans. Hurray! JD

Little Blush Dress

This is my (CM’s) most lovely sister Karin – you can call her KM if you would like.  Her dinner dress was this perfect little blush number from H&M for $60 paired with these ridiculously sexy, black strappy sandal from Costa Blanca for only $28.  Her earrings are borrowed from moi and tan is complimentary from the Florida sun.  CM

Mellow Yellow

For dinner the other night, I was in the mood to wear my yellow check shirt by HUGO (BOSS Red Label). I bought it at a sample sale for $45 and often call it my ugly-pretty shirt. It’s kind of boxy and ugly, but at the same time I like it. I think tucked in is the way to go with this one, otherwise it would just look like a square box.
My jeans are by Rich & Skinny (gift), and braided belt is from H&M ($19). I bought it a size too big so I could tie it like that. Necklace is a newbie from Forever 21 ($11). I love my ugly-pretty top. JD
