Going Green

Hi Prepsters,

Olives, leaves, chlorophyll, and envy....the one thing they have in common is that they're green, just like my outfit. 


My top is from H&M, and is an olive eyelet top.  It is perfect for the summer thanks to the eyelet cutouts throughout the top that ensure you feel every breeze that blows by. I also like that fact that this blouse is a little bit generous in sizing. Normally I would never be able to wear a button up shirt from H&M because it pulls in my bust when it fits properly everywhere else, but this one had a little bit of stretch which allowed me to wear it comfortably. I wore a strapless bra from Addition Elle underneath it. I find that bralettes don’t give me enough support, and this strapless is comfortable and stays up.


The pleated skirt is also from H&M. The material has a great fall, and has a little bit of sparkle throughout that catches in the light. It is also a very versatile piece as you can dress it up, or dress it down. The midi length is very flattering on, and when worn with a pointed heel, can elongate your legs. When I had gone to H&M the skirt had almost sold out, but luckily waistband was elastic, which allowed me to buy it three sizes smaller than what I normally would. (Something I would never recommend doing otherwise)

My accessories were mostly gold toned for this outfit to enhance the gold stars on my clutch, which I had purchased from Winners. I wore a few infinity rings and a pair of tassle earrings I had purchased from Reitman’s.


Throughout most of the day I had worn a sparkly gold pointed toe heel, however while running around Toronto, I managed to break it. I decided to then opt for a gold sparkly ballet flat that was both easy to wear, but still a little bit more fun.

For my makeup I wanted to do a matching terracotta lip and eye look.
