Look 1: the Floral Jeans
These jeans caught my attention as soon as I set my eyes on them! Not only is the print perfect, they fit like a dream, too. I decided to pair them with a simple tank and jean vest, while playing up the colours in the print with a fun pair of shoes and vibrant purse. These jeans are so versatile - all the colours in the print allow for endless combinations of things to wear with them!
Jean Vest: Garage
Tank: RW & Co
Floral Jeans: Quintessential
Look 2: the Basic Navy Dress
A basic solid dress is a staple in any girl's wardrobe, in my opinion, and this navy dress from Quintessential fits the bill perfectly! It's a great length for spring and summer, and would work great with tights in the fall and winter. You can't tell because of the scarf I'm wearing in these photos, but this dress has little brass buttons up the front of the bodice and a beautiful sweetheart neckline, which would work well with a necklace. I decided to pair this dress with fun colours, drawing from the palette in the scarf to tie it all together, but I can also see this dress paired with crisp white, and pops of red for a fun nautical look!
Look 3: the Printed Dress
I fell in love with this dress as soon as I came across it! My blog name may give it away, but I love birds, and any garment with a bird print draws my attention like a magpie to a shiny object. I wanted to let the print of the dress shine in this outfit, so I paired it with a simple cropped jean jacket and silver watch necklace. I played up some of the colours in the print with the purse and shoes (which are unbelievably soft and comfortable, by the way!)
You may have noticed that the shoes and purse are the same for all three outfits - Quintessential has an incredible selection of bags and shoes alike, but I wanted to specifically showcase how versatile a bright shoe and purse can be. I know so many people who would look at a pair of bright pink flats and think "What on earth would I wear with those??" or "It's not worth buying shoes I can only wear with one outfit." Well, I'd like to vanquish those thoughts and prove to you that bright shoes and bags are indeed versatile and completely wearable with many outfits!
Jacket: Urban Planet
