After a busy week of being sick with a sinus infection and feeling awful, this will be the best I can give you on the blog! Perhaps it was the fact that my only day off was rainy and filled with long hours spent at the library, but I just can’t stay away from the colour black (can I even call black a colour? shade?). Black, black, black. I know it’s supposed to be summer and we should bring out the colours, but it’s just so easy to wear…. and it reflects the weather, and….it looks so good. I know many people have the same problem of having little colour in their wardrobe, but if the shoe fits…. why not wear it!? Right? So here we go… This week’s Currently Craving:
Wilfred Dress/ Zara Sandals / Karen Walker Sunglasses / Marc by Marc Jacobs Phone Case / Rebecca Minkoff Pouch / Aritzia Jacket / Rebecca Minkoff Shorts
I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but my favourite designers right now are Rebecca Minkoff and Marc by Marc Jacobs (it’s not that obvious right?). I know it’s pretty mainstream of me, but I’m not against going with the grain (haha, get it?). Anyway, I have a current obsession with black leather…similar to my obsession in the winter, but the pieces I’m currently craving are seasonally acceptable (summer-ized!).
The strappy Zara closed-toe sandals are perfect when matched with a black leather pouch (like the Rebecca Minkoff pouch shown) and complement a pair of light-wash jeans divinely.
As always, Marc Jacobs has come up with the cutest Zebra Iphone cover and I’m all for the phone case critters (hello cats).
If you know me at all, then you have seen my leather shorts and you know that I think this is a wardrobe essential! They’re like a cooler version of plain black shorts. Try this pair by Rebecca Minkoff and I promise you’ll never go back to boring old cotton (or worse, Polyester) shorts again!
Throw in a good pair of retro Karen Walker
sunnies and you make any outfit cute, be it a plain white tee and how about a twirly PARTYSKIRT
My last two cravings are from the infamous Aritzia (how original, right?). I’m in love with the Talula Jean Jacket with leather sleeves, because if you havn’t noticed yet… I. just. can’t. get. enough. of. leather (it’s an addiction). If you don’t mind a lot of black in your outfit, pair this cute jacket with the Wilfred Colour-block Tank Dress. I’m all about comfort, so this T shirt style dress is perfect and… it’s not completely black! Hello grey!!!
Well, that’s it for now. I’ve got two more posts in the works so stay tuned!
