Summer Layers, Selfies & Instagram Outfits

SCARF  |  H&M DRESS – OLD (SIMILAR, SIMILARLOVE THIS ONE)  |  TANK WORN AS A SKIRT  |  WEDGES  |  SUNGLASSES

I have had this dress for years and since there are various panels in different fabrics on it, it’s sheer in some areas so I used a longer tank to act as a skirt underneath and tied the straps together below the bust (that ‘bump’ was hidden by the scarf).

LOLA ROMPER – OLD (SIMILAR, LOVE THIS)  |  BRALETTE

I love rompers but they often aren’t long enough in the body for me since I’m tall.  This one is a few years old and purchased in Vegas (see full recap of that trip here) and it fits the bill.  I usually wear a black bandeau swimsuit top underneath but love the look of a strappy bralette.

H&M COAT (SIMILAR)

This coat didn’t end up coming home with me but I saw that it’s recently on sale!

BAG ON SALE  |  NECKLACE  |  HAIR TUTORIAL

I love wearing my hair like this, and although it takes a bit of practice, if you can French braid, you can get the hang of this.  Perfect for warmer weather when you want your hair out your face but still want to look pulled together.

JACKET  |  DYNAMITE SWEATER – OLD (SIMILAR)  |  GUESS DENIM – OLD (WANT THESE)  |  BAG

I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m loving flared jeans for this year and into the Fall.  My only requirement is that they touch the floor with my shoes on, so finding the perfect heel height can be a bit of a challenge.

TOP  |  SHORTS (LOVE THESE IN BLACK) |  STEVE MADDEN BUCKET BAG (SAVE, SPLURGE)

I’m loving the bucket bag trend for Summer and this one is in such a pretty blush colour–one of my favourite neutrals that I love to pair with grey and olive green.

TANK  |  VINTAGE LEATHER SKIRT (SIMILAR, LOVE THIS)

I found this skirt at a thrift store years ago and have easily gotten more than my money’s worth over the years.  I have a second one that doesn’t quite fit as nice so I’m planning to use the leather to make a clutch.

F21 JACKET – OLD (SIMILAR)  |  SCARF  |  FREE PEOPLE SWEATER (LOVE THIS ONE & HAVE IT IN GREY)  |  URBAN PLANET SKINNIES  |  ASH BOOTIES  |  BAG

This was a few months ago, obviously, when it was a bit cooler and we had just returned from Italy.  I love weather where you can wear a light jacket, open toes and feel comfortable.  Perfect layering weather, which is definitely a favourite.

TOP  |  SISLEY JOGGER PANTS (SIMILAR)  |  SLIDES

I didn’t think I’d get a ton of wear out of thee gold slides when I purchased them in Italy but I have been wearing them non-stop!  They pretty much go with everything, are easy to slip on and off, and are comfortable too.

BLAZER  |  DRESS (LOVE THIS ONE)  |  NECKLACE  |  SHOES  |  BAG

I haven’t been sharing my #acolookdowns on Instagram much anymore but thought I’d share them here once and a while, instead.

While I love neutrals, sometimes it’s nice to break out the colour, especially for the warmer months.  This bright coral dress is super roomy which is great for those days you’re not feeling yourself 😉

ROMPER (SIMILAR)

This romper looked cute in the pic but in real life it was a little short for me, unfortunately.  It had a really pretty lace detail on the shoulders and it would be so awesome for a bride for her shower or bachelorette.

CLUB MONACO TOP – OLD (SIMILAR)  |  ZARA PANTS (SIMILAR)  |  WEDGES  |  BAG

My uniform from Snapchap (I’m acoest1984): waxed pants, a looser fitting top & wedges–all in neutral colours, of course.

URBAN PLANET JACKET (SIMILAR)  |  TANK  |  SIRENS SKORT – OLD (SIMILAR)  |  SUNGLASSES

HAT  |  TANK (SIMILAR)  | SHORTS

Finally, a serious flexing photo for fun.  It’s not often I wear a hat to the gym, but sometimes it’s fun to switch up your look.
