OOTD:Casual Days

All pictures for Simply Lacey

I enjoyed a wonderful BBQ dinner this past friday and wanted to share some pictures of what I wore for the day. I wanted to keep it as comfortable as possiable and ended up with the all american staples with a white t-shirt and a good pair of my favourite old blue jeans. I also was a good oppurtunity to break in my new shoes and even though they are tall they are now very comfortable and I feel as if I could run a marathon in them. Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!

 Shirt: H & M
Jeans: Bluenotes
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
Ring and Earrings: Forever 21
Sunglasses: Unknown
Just to let you know I will be going on a shopping trip to the USA till the 31st and there will be no posts during that time, I hope to have some purchases to share!

What a Night...

All pictures taken by me

So on Thursday night I attended a wonderful event called rack to rack. It was an amazing evening and the beautiful stylist Rachel Matthews Burton was so sweet and full of great tips and advice. I was fortunate enough to have won a ticket to this event from the beautiful Kelly from her blog It's D'or and I can't thank her enough for such an amazing oppurtunity. The evening was spent in a comfy and well designed room filled with great clothing, food and drinks. I'm going to fill you in on what I learned that night. So some fall trends to look for is colour, any darker more fall colour such as a plum purple, royal blues, reds, mustard and coral are great for any fall piece. Another thing to look for is luxurious textures such as snake skin,furs, lace, and leather which can bring a fun new element to your fall wardrobe. You can totally change an outfits apperance by how you style it, if you do it right you shouldn't have to buy expensive pieces for an outfit to look expensive. Also if your going to add a statement piece to your outfit, limit it to one because you don't want your outfit to look to busy and you want one main focal point. The 50's and 70's will make a bigger apperence this season with different prints and textures such as polka dots, flared jeans, pencil skirts, bow-tie blouses and oxford shoes. While having print on your clothing is great watch the scale as it needs to be equal to your body size. If you add bulk to your top you want you bottoms to be tight fitting and vise-versa.That is a quick summary of all the amazing tips and trick I learned and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I hope to attend the next funshop and hope to see any followers there.

Just a quick peek at what I wore to the funshop!

Shoes-Anne Klein
Necklace-Forever 21

Unfortunatley I left my camera at home so I don't have any pictures from the event!
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend

Birthday Brainstorming

So September 11 is my Big Sweet 16 and I can't wait! I'm starting to brainstorm some ideas for my party and I wanted some input from my amazing readers. I will be having my closest friends over at my house where we will enjoy an amazing specialized fondant cake (fingers crossed!) with lots of candy, fun and beautiful people. I'll have some friends sleepover and then the next day me and the girls will head out for a day of shopping all around Toronto and then I will head out for a nice dinner with my family. I'm super excited and always open to different party ideas.

Here are a few ideas for party dresses

I love the colour and cut for a party dress but it would still be the perfect dress for shopping as well!

I adore the sweet detailing on this dress!

One of my favourite dresses ever and would love good with any shoe

Different but I just adore the big bow
Any other girly party dresses you would recommend?

A pretty cake with a similar colour scheme

I want it to have a very whimsical yet sophisticated style
I think sweet bows and and pretty flowers complete the setting

Pink drinks with colourful straws will be attending my party

Simple and beautiful

I love the idea of pretty macaroons making a statement and a great snack
I want a big selection of candy going for the whole night including enough for the sleepover movie
Any other ideas for the party or I also was wondering if you had any gift ideas for a sweet 16?

P.S Tomorrow I will share more about the rack to rack event

If the Shoe Fits

All pictures by me
I wanted to share one of my newer purchases as of lately, so here is my new shoes! I have been looking for a new pair of shoes that were a sandal style but originally I was looking for a pair with a thicker heel. When I found these though I knew they had to be mine even if the heel was a little thinner and taller than I was used to. They were a great find and I love the colour and stud detailing.

Hope you all had a wonderful day!

Dying for Dior

Picture via. Christian Dior

One fashion show I look forward to every year is Christian Dior's fresh and innovative fall/winter collection! Considering that fall is my favourite season for multiple reasons from the leaves changing colour, deep new colours and a plus is my birthday is in September, the fall fashion shows are always exciting. Dior did not disappoint this year, although I was surprised to see soft pastel colours and frilly, girly styles for a fall collection but that is a combination of some of my favourite things! It was very feminine with big skirts and different prints mixed with architectural inspired cuts that seemed to work well for the haute couture brand. I hope you enjoy the beautiful creations and I hope you'll like the finale pieces as much as I did!


Do you have any favourite pieces?

Fall'in love

It's that time of year again where everyone starts to prepare for back to school. Although I always look forward to going back to school I am sad to see the summer go but I now know that I have fall fashion to look forward to. Dressing for the first day of school was always a stressful but fun task, unfortunately I currently wear a uniform to school so I no longer have to worry about that. I thought I would share some iteams I would love to have for back to school and hopefully you can find something you like to.

A Simple button down, especially blue ones, are my favourite thing to throw on for a simple and effortless look.

A brightly coloured blazer is perfect to layer on top of a simple t-shirt and my favourite way to add colour to an otherwise basic outfit.

Oxford shoes are a cute and quirky addition to an outfit. Not only are they cute but they are also very comfy and will keep your feet happy throughout the day!

A stripped shirt is the best for any cool fall day, as it goes with everything from jeans to a print skirt and will be cozy and yet still breezy 

A dress like this is a basic for a fall wardrobe as it still goes well with flats and sandals for summer but still works well with tights and a cardigan for colder weather.

Pleated skirts are a fun way to make your outfit unique and fun so you can stand out but still be classy, especially if you buy it in a bright colour plus it will go well with flats, heels, or sandals!

What are you planning on wearing on your first day back?
