Devoted to Denim

Jacket: c/o Fidelity Denim, Tank: Joe Fresh, Pants: c/o Jacob, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Necklace: H&M, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelet: Stella & Dot, Sunglasses: c/o Sunglass Warehouse, Shoes: c/o Vince Camuto

You might remember that last summer I had a Fidelity Denim jacket that I loved to pieces. It was possibly the most loved and most worn item in my wardrobe. And then one night at a pub, someone swiped it off the back of a chair and it was gone forever. So it goes without saying that I was beyond excited when Fidelity contacted me recently about participating in their #DevotedToDenim campaign! I got a replacement for my beloved jacket, this time in a lighter wash with gold buttons. True love, reunited, denim style.

I thought it would be the perfect topper for these awesome printed pants I got recently from Jacob. I was nervous they were going to be a little too loud for my curvy lower half but I'm pretty darn pleased with them. I can definitely see them being a work staple this spring and they are made in Canada! Even better!

In unrelated news, looking back at that post I just linked above really makes me want to go back to being a mega blonde. That might have to happen soon.

Typically Me


Trench: Zara, Top: Smart Set, Jeans: c/o Old Navy, Necklace: c/o Olive + Piper, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelet: Stella & Dot, Booties: c/o Composure Vintage, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Sunglasses: c/o Sosie

This was one of those days that I almost didn't bother to take photos because there's not a whole lot to this outfit, but I felt it was pretty typically "me" and something you'd see me in any given day so I had Annick snap a few shots for me. Pairing stripes with a trench coat is one of my favorite classic, go-to combos! 

This striped peplum has become one of my favorites, and I'm excited to show it to you in it's full peplum glory another time, but for now it's still too chilly to bare arms outdoors, so layered under a blazer & a trench will have to do for now. 

Did you all have a nice Easter weekend? Mine was super low key - I didn't end up going to visit my family as we were away last weekend and I'll be seeing half of them this coming weekend and the rest in a few weeks time, so we thought we'd just kick around home for Easter. It was the perfect mix of lazy and productive - I'd do some laundry, take a nap, tidy the kitchen, eat some chocolate, etc. We BBQ'd almost every meal and it was awesome.

Rainy Day Style

Sources: 1 & 2, 3, 4

It's a cold, gray, rainy day here so I thought I'd do a little roundup of some of my favorite rainy day style inspiration! The one from Blair is a classic that I've swooned over for a couple years now, and it goes without saying how obsessed I am with those black & white striped umbrellas. Paired with classic trench coats, they are beyond perfect. 

I hope you're all staying warm & dry! Happy Wednesday!
