Look 19 – Summer Additions

Style Bee - Look 19 - Shape of Things

Since I do almost all my shopping online I like to equate the feeling of wearing something ‘right out of the store’ to ‘right out of the box’. While I’ve become a pretty savvy e-shopper it’s still rare that I open up a delivery, try the item on and then wear it for the next 5 days straight. But that was indeed the case with these pants, these shoes and this hat. All of which are items I’ve slowly and carefully added to my summer wardrobe.

These pants are by one of my all-time favourite designers, Elizabeth Suzann, and I knew they’d be good, I just didn’t know they’d be SO good. They’re made of an incredible cotton canvas fabric that only gets more amazing with each wear and somehow feels warm on cool days and breathes beautifully on hot days. I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the fit, but I honestly love it. The high waist and wide band feels fabulously slimming, especially when juxtaposed with a relaxed leg. A slight taper and a little ankle grazing cuff make all the difference too. The side pockets are nothing short of genius and my massive iPhone 6+ finally has a safe place when I’m running around or walking Dobby. I stepped a bit outside my comfort zone with these and I’m really glad I did.

These Rachel Comey wedges got mentioned a week or so ago and I’m still totally smitten. Rarely does a major sale purchase pan out so well. I’ll be wearing them for many summers to come and love the super sleek, almost sculptural vibe they exude. I topped off (literally) my summer closet additions with this classic Janessa Leoné straw boater. I’ve been lusting after a hat by this designer for a few seasons and now I know what all the fuss is really about. Her hats are so beautifully constructed and detailed it’s amazing. The fact it also protects my face from the sun is just a major bonus.

So there you have it! Some recent closet additions that have been on major repeat. This is also the last outfit post before my Summer Capsule Closet starts next week and you guys, I’m stupidly excited to show you!

    I’ve been eyeing those pants too. They look great on you and with the crop top. But there’s no way (famous last words) that I’m going to own a short top…so what else works with the high elastic waist and volume in the pockets? Thanks!

    • Hey Emilee! Such a good question. I definitely don’t rock a crop top most days but I’ve been wearing a slightly fitted tank or tee tucked in and it looks great. This one from J.Crew is one of my favourites and it’s slim but not too tight. I also like to contrast the heavier canvas with a more sleek material like silk and this tank from Everlane is great. It’s loose fitting but it flows and drapes really nicely so there’s not too much volume. Hope that helps!! xo
