The soft edge to foliage
With the cold weather coming back in a fury, I trekked out to the Tropical Greenhouse here in Ottawa. It is only minutes away ( by car) from my place and it is crazy humid and hot in here. So where better to do a spring -ish casual look.
I staple that I like to collect are band tees, or artist tees. Today felt like an Elvis kind of day. Elvis and some trusty highwaisted Levi's. Jeans are just such a versatile piece as they can be worn down, or worn even to work. Pairing it with pieces to elevate it, it can be worn as a stylish piece to work, like how I paired a casual band tee with a blazer and some jeans. To elevate it more, you can wear it with heels, wedges, or some flats.
I love Elvis a lot, and was so excited when I found this at Urban Outfitters. When I was younger, on tv they were playing all of Elvis's films. So I took to my trusty old vhs player and taped them all. However, they were taped over since then ( not by me). But I just remember being home while the vhs player was taping it, and watching each film. One that stands out the most was Kissing Cousins, just the title at that age I was at through me off. I love watching classic films all the time.
Instead of elevating my outfit more than just with the blazer, I went for some platform sneakers that I got from ASOS. I find that platform sneakers are actually a little more elevated than regular sneakers but still has that casual vibe, which for today I wanted. They were on sale when I bought them, and sadly are no longer on their sight. However they do have a pair that are similar that are silver.
Here's a link to that: http://www.asos.com/london-rebel/london-rebel-flatform-trainers/prd/6686872?iid=6686872&clr=Silver&SearchQuery=london%20rebel%20flatform%20sneakers&pgesize=2&pge=0&totalstyles=2&gridsize=3&gridrow=1&gridcolumn=1 .
I currently own 2 platform sneakers, and I would love more. But first I'll need to donate the shoes I have currently that I don't wear.
Oh and keep an eye out on ASOS, they have some really great sale deals sometimes. I got my two sneakers on a 70% off deal.
Thank you guys so much!
Hope everyone's day today went amazing!
