Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Double Dose Of Denim

Ray Ban_Blue Lemon Paris_Loft_Calico_James Jeans_Anthropologie_coverAbout a week and a half ago, I made a very quick business trip to the Toronto office with Le Boss. This was my second time in the city. My first trip was a few years back with my bestie Alison and we had a grand ole’ time exploring. Sad for me, this trip was a one-nighter with minimal me time to roam the city. However, the night we were there, we dined at Biff’s Bistro and it was divine! The next morning, I made my boss come with me to a Tim Horton’s for coffee and a doughnut. When in Canada, right?

My quick trip to Toronto served as inspiration for this outfit post. How about a Canadian tuxedo, eh? I rediscovered this jacket that was purchased a few months back. Totally forgot I even had it in my wardrobe! Don’t you love when that happens?

Have a wonderful weekend people!

Outfit Ideas:

Mirrored Aviators: Ray-Ban from Piperlime (old), $93. Found on, $116.99.

Eiffel Tour Necklace: Blue Lemon Paris (early bday gift from my Parisienne friend).

Faded Chambray: Loft (old). Check out the selection of chambray shirts at Loft, most on sale at 40% off! 

Canvas Jacket: Jack by BB Dakota from Calico, $35! Nabbed this during one of their sales and saved 50%! But GREAT NEWS. Found online at BB Dakota for $21!!!

Jeans: James Jeans (twiggy/silkstone touch legging) from Habit on the sale rack at $50 (originally $158 and still at this price on the James Jeans website). If you are ever in Southie, definitely stop Habit! You now I am a fan of Gap 1969 denim. So, I recommend the 1969 super stretch legging jeans, $79.95.

Booties: J Shoes from Anthropologie, $19.99. I purchased these last year during an end of season sale. It was a bit snug, so I handed them off to my friend Alison. But then this year, she gave them back to me because they were a bit snug on her. So I used this magical leather stretch spray which totally loosened the booties right up. Sisterhood of the traveling booties!

    You can never go wrong by doubling down on some denim. Or sharing shoes;) Well played!

    Such a bummer you weren’t able to explore the city, but at least you got to sample some of Canada’s staples at Timmie’s!
