This past week has been a whirlwind since i’ve started this blog- from working overtime & sustaining a back injury it’s never a dull moment 😉 (Shout out to all physiotherapists out there- very thankful for you!)
However, I did manage to snag a picture of one of my outfits I wore while shopping with one of my dear friends! *I’m the one on the left.
The dress i’m wearing you can find here! It’s currently on sale, and comes in a variety of colours and patterns if polka dots aren’t your thing! I wear a size Large.
The dress itself while on alone is nothing too over the top- it isn’t form fitting and doesn’t particularly give you much shape, however it has a cute cross-back detail that is flattering to your shoulders and back. The straps of the dress criss cross over, and your back is only exposed to about where your bra strap would be- so for my fuller bust ladies you don’t have to fear of an exposed back and can wear a strapless bra with this (or a regular bra if you wear a cardigan or jacket with it!). I also find it has a flattering neck line! For someone with a fuller bust and wide shoulders, v-neck lines are my most flattering, and so i’m thankful for the v-neck. It comes with adjustable straps so you can make this dress as modest as you like.
As for the jean jacket, this has been the only jean jacket i’ve ever grown to love. As someone with a larger upper half of the body (or “apple shaped”), I always found jean jackets to enhance these features, and look just plain bulky. I tried on this jacket at Lucky Brand Outlet, and fell in love. The crop was just right, and hits right where my waist divots. My friend also loved it so much, she tried it on and bought it! I couldn’t find this exact jacket online as I believe it might be sold out, however I found a similar one here. It has the distressing and same overall feel that this jacket has that I love.
The shoes are from TOMS- A brand i’ve loved over the years, as they’re just the most comfortable shoes! I grew tired of the rounded shape of the shoe, as I find a pointed toe is most flattering and elongates the foot. I have wide feet, about size 8.5 and so any way to make my feet appear slimmer and a tad longer is the goal! They sold out of these shoes i’m wearing, but here is a similar pair from TOMS.
The necklace was an anniversary gift from my boyfriend, it is a dainty chain with a heart pendent. I believe it was from the vendor Vivah, found at Carlingwood Mall in Ottawa.
Thanks for reading, and I hope to be back soon with another outfit! This one has been a huge go-to since injuring my back as its easy to throw on (no shimmying in tight jeans 😉 )
Have a great rest of your week! Leave a comment below, what your go-to summer outfit has been! 🙂 xo
