Day 1 was Mother's Day whereupon I received a hand painted (with blue nail polish) washer necklace on neon pink plastic string, which turned out to be the inspiration for my ensemble for the day. I paired my "neon" pinkish top - $5.60 from VV Boutique - with my blue skirt and headed off on a road trip involving puppies, ice cream and 5 guys. I took one photo with me in it...
Of course you have the sprinkle cones on Mother's Day.
I'd be panting too if I was nursing 9 babies.
I wore the top again on Monday to work, intending to write a rant about accessorizing.
Light gray belt $2.10, sandles $7.70 from VV Boutique!
You see, I worked at the Mercer Collective On the Spot Pop Up craft sale last Saturday for my sister, the talented designer behind She Does Create so I had all day to style watch. While the women of Edmonton were dressed nicely for this artsy market, they were generally under-accessorized, IMHO. Next time, I'm going all Stacy London "surprise" you at the store and style you according to my rules... Boom or bust sales approach, I will let you know. But I will say this: put on a necklace. Or a bracelet. Or earrings. Just put something on. It doesn't need to "match." My theory is that if women buy things that attract their eye then throw them together, they will "go" because it ends up reflecting your personal aesthetic. And who can argue that it doesn't work?! That's style, baby! Anyhoo, no photos besides the one I instagrammed in the bathroom at work. As usual.
Day 3 was today, my Tuesday day off. I paired the top with a simple denim skirt (Levis $5 from VV Boutique), Hispanitas and of course, I wore a necklace.
Just me and my life of glamour.
This time I got wild and crazy and put two necklaces together to make a more contemporary length...
She Does Create early works.
I could have cropped out my laundry in the photo above but I am
