Being me

As much as I’m a firm believer that experimenting with your look is really important – and a lot of fun! – I also know there’s nothing like wearing pieces that make you feel utterly comfortable…and exactly like yourself!!

These striped jeans are fast becoming one of my most favourites pairs; I feel like a rock star when I have them on!!  (Am I allowed to say that?!)

And when I wore my plaid shirt in my “Do’s and don’ts” post just a couple of weeks ago, I thought it had a prematurely autumn-ish vibe…but now, together with the striped skinnies, the look is somehow perfectly appropriate for a late summer day, don’t you think??

The shoes, of course, had to be my reliable Aldo booties (as I’ve mentioned several times before, they seem to go with everything!); then I added my floppy felt hat and my chain-mail crossbody bag…and suddenly, my finished outfit was totally, completely and entirely me!!

P.S. Happy Labour Day to all my dear Canadian and American readers…I hope you’re enjoying the long weekend!!  πŸ™‚

      My two favourite patterns together in one outfit gave me lots to smile about, dearest Veronika!! And having a three-day weekend was just what the doctor ordered; but I'll admit that I'm a little sad, too, because it was the last one of the summer. Seriously…where did the time go?!
