Hot Pink and Floral…
I love wearing striking colours and enjoy the vibe it gives me when I wear them.
It was a beautiful sunny, but still cool, spring day when I opted for this white jeans and fuchsia combo.
Jeans are not usually a favourite of mine, but these ones are comfortable as they are high waisted, so don’t slide down, and they were actually cropped, but because I’m petite they were a perfect length – there are some advantages to being short!!
They have just enough elastin in them to be comfortable to wear all day without losing their shape.
Keeping It Sustainable…
I’ve talked before about walking the walk in regard to sustainability in fashion and with this in mind, I picked up this super cute floral blouse on my expedition into my local pre-loved designer clothing store.
I have purchased so many of my things from this store and I was really pleased to find this pretty floral top, perfect for spring and into summer.
I do love my details and it’s my thought that they make or break an outfit.
This little blouse has delightful turned up cuffs, a fitted bodice and sweet yellow, blue and white flowers embroidered on the front.
These sweet, embroidered flowers tie beautifully with the colours in the print of the blouse and give it a uniqueness which I found irresistible – I like things that not everyone is going to be walking around wearing!!
I was having a “more is more” rather than “less is more” kind of day so I added the fuchsia shoes, bag, waterfall cardi, tiny flower earrings, wood-frame sunnies, embroidered tan leather belt (thrifted) and a headscarf.

Thank you, Nancy!! I love the scarf around my head and have considered trying a turban, although haven’t quite gotten there yet!! I felt great in this bright and vibrant colour!!

I love the contrast in color! I have a floral shirt that I like to wear with my white jeans but I usually do not add such a pop of color: I think I should try it!

Oh thank you so much – yes try the bright colour!! It will definitely lift your spirits and those around you too!! I love the white jeans as a backdrop to colour and print! Have a great week!!

If we did’t know better, we might have thought those were jeans
