green monster.

h&m divided stripe tee, vintage button down shirt courtesy of the haute pursuit, h&m divided maxi dress.

olive, the best shade of green (in my opinion), is quickly taking over my closet.
works just as good now for late summer as it will all autumn long.

a little leather.

american eagle leather jacket via eBay

fate (or luck) brought me together with this jacket that i loved but did not purchase when it was available last september. and i've been wanting a brown leather beauty like this for so long now (see here, here and here).
gotta love eBay!

getaway.

counterclockwise from top right - victoria's secret bikini; proenza schouler bag; ray-ban aviators; elizabeth & james shirt; aldo sandals; asos bracelets and wristband.

i've been going going going nonstop for the past few months, and my schedule + the constant heat has me physically exhausted. all i can think of right now is some sort of relaxing vacation where i can veg out on the beach for days on end with good books, cold drinks, and a cool breeze.
this is what i'd wear on said trip if money weren't an option.

p.s. check out my latest features in style sample magazine (page 12) and on denimology :)

double denim.

this is double denim x2. double denim, day and night.
i first tried this trend out back in february, and i've been loving it ever since.



h&m l.o.g.g. denim shirt; forever 21 skinny jeans, aviators, and watch; fashionology.nl cross necklace, beaded bracelets, hammered knuckle ring, claw ring, and cross ring; lowluv x erin wasson scarab ring and bone bracelet; asos bag and boots.

this outfit was not weather appropriate, but i wore it to work, so the air conditioning kept me cool.






same pieces from above, + vintage levi's cutoffs and jeffrey campbell wedges.

it's my go-to look, but i officially need to be more creative and stop wearing a button down and cutoffs! since this was what i wore last week, i've of course put together some new things since then, but you'll have to wait a bit to see those outfits :)

oh and i never want to take this necklace off.

waffle knit.







h&m sweater; vintage levi's shorts; asos bag; fashionology.nl bird skull necklace, cross ring, claw ring, and hammered knuckle ring; forever 21 watch; lowluv x erin wasson bone bracelet and scarab ring via tobi.com; jeffrey campbell mariel wedges.

still. so. hot. outside.
it leaves me uninspired. there's not much to wear when it feels like an inferno.
i've already got my mind on fall, so i'll suffer through a little bit of sweat, just to be able to wear lightweight sweaters like this.
and here's my favorite new bag. it makes me very happy, since i will never be able to afford a real PS1.

shout out to rachel from girl with kaleidoscope eyes, who recognized me while i was hard at work today. nice to meet you!

hope you all have an amazing weekend.

giveaway! - chictopia x ifyouseekstyle (CLOSED).


guess what guys, i have a giveaway for you - 5,000 chic points on chictopia.com!

if you aren't familiar with chictopia, it's an online fashion community where users can upload personal photos of their outfits; browse looks uploaded by thousands of other users based on style, occassion, even body type; enter tons of cool contests with sponsors like forever 21, teen vogue, and modcloth.com; and shop for stylish items using chic rewards earned through participation in the site...that's just the beginning!

after finding chictopia through another fashion blogger, it was the first place i went to when i wanted to start uploading my own outfit photos, and it was only the incredible response from my fans on chictopia that allowed me to be confident enough to start my blog. it’s so amazing to know that you have an automatic, built-in set of friends the second you join the site! and the inspiration gained is endless - you can find styling ideas from users who share a similar aesthetic, and many others can inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new.
i just love the entire concept behind this site. chictopia is truly a community of stylish individuals who come together to share the same passion.


to enter this giveaway for 5,000 chicpoints, all you have to do to is leave a comment on this post with your chictopia username and the link to your favorite chic reward.
this means you must be a chictopia member to enter. you can find the chic rewards here, and you can choose any reward, redeemed or unredeemed - it just has to be your favorite :)
i will randomly choose a qualified winner one week from today, on july 10th.

the chic points you may win can be used to redeem highly coveted chic rewards - the other day i saw both a lowluv x erin wasson ring and a t by alexander wang tank top up for grabs.
score!

good luck everyone, and don't forget to follow chictopia twitter and "like" them on facebook.

this giveaway is closed as of 7.11.10.

last saturday.


h&m divided black romper; forever 21 aviators and necklace; vintage tribal cuff; lowluv x erin wasson bone bracelet; fashionology.nl and lowluv x erin wasson rings.

here's what i wore to my five year high school reunion last saturday. it was held outdoors back at a friend's lake (although these pics were taken at my house), and with a heat index of 103 and insane humidity levels, this breezy romper was the only thing i could even think of throwing on. i finished my look with simple flat sandals, but the necklace came off almost immediately after it started sticking to my sunscreen-and-bug-repellent-covered skin.

due to the heat, i haven't been wearing anything too worthy of an outfit post lately (hence the lack of posting), and i dont just want to post any old look (quality over quantity), but i do have a few lined up to show you (like what i wore yesterday), and i'll be having a giveaway this weekend!

happy thursday, happy july, and happy canada day to my canadian readers :)
