A Casual Walk in the Ravine

Thursday, July 1, 2010

Hello!

So, I know I haven't been so consistent in a while - and I need to get back on track. So I'm going back to the basics, of what I did my blog for before. Lately, it is mostly posts of me going out & such - and I want to definitely do more fashion related posting. So, today I had a day off (Happy Canada DAY!) - and of course, why not do a shoot? I decided to choose some fun, pretty summer dresses - perfect for a walk in the garden or having afternoon tea. And who better than my partner in crime, Claire, to shoot with?



However, of course if you're going for a more casual look, I had to include something fun & hipster for all you jean-lovers out there! Fedoras definitely complete the look. On myself, I'm wearing a straw fedora whilst Claire is wearing more of a caramel coloured one. Skinny jeans are always a super comfy & fashion forward way for a casual going-out look. With a cute pair of sandals, its a great ensemble!




As for accessories goes, double rings (my fave!) necklaces, sunglasses, the usual - all complete this look.




The next few are dresses I wanted to show that I am beyond excited about!





Summer dresses are just so fun, even for everyday! With a pair of flat sandals, they're great for shopping, picnics, anything you desire! Blue & Green shades definitely work for this, pairing the outfits with minimal accessories. Sun dresses are also great for shopping because it's easy to change in and out of them! The green dress is one of my own, from Forever 21. Claire's dress is her own and from H&M.



The next look deals with lots and lots of accessories! As seen above, pretty jewels add extra sparkle to the dresses. Ornate rings, bangles piled on top of another, all perfect to create this look. The dresses (featured below) are mine and my sister's, and the anthropologie polka dotted one can be seen on the sis in previous blog posts. The simple baby doll of the metallic bronze coloured one is absolutely sooo pretty, especially with the princess sleeves and a pair of simplistic sandals. With the polka dotted dress, sequined ballerina flats are a must!



Enjoy! xo Rach
