Twisted Olive

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you have had a great week and are almost done getting ready for the holidays!  I am sorry it has been so long since my last post but I needed to take a little mental health break.  There has been a lot of change going on in my life the past few months (I hope to be able to share more in the New Year) and it had taken its toll on me.

But I arrived in my home town of Sault Ste. Marie wednesday afternoon and I am feeling nostalgic and starting to get my mojo back.  I couldn’t believe it has been 2 years since I have been here and for a small town how much things change but also how they still stay the same.

This post is all about this super cute dress that I recently got from eShakti.  You may have noticed that I haven’t featured eShakti on the blog for a while, I took a little break because I was buying a lot but I was going through withdrawal and so I had to get some new pieces lol.

They have a really great selection of knit pieces which I find are perfect for comfort and a great fit but still looking put together.  The trapeze shape is a current hot trend and I love the movement that this shape provides.  As with all my eShakti pieces, I had it custom made to my measurements and I was thrilled with the fit.  The only thing I customized on this dress was the length – it was knee length and I chose to make it mid calf.

The funny thing about this outfit is that it came together in a matter of minutes.  I was shooting with my friend Stef and thought I was done and she then offered to shoot another look for me because we had time.  I was like, I have nothing planned and she was like I am sure you can figure something out!

So I grabbed the dress because I know you guys would like to see some more casual options from me and then I remembered the scarf which had been a blogger gift from Lane Bryant.  I love combining colours and patterns and adding the teal was totally unexpected till I realized there was olive in the scarf too.

I then decided to add some additional teal accents in these mid calf suede boots from Full Beauty and one of my tried and true Phoebe style Coach bags.  Now I shot this look before we got the cold weather and snow but to make it appropriate for the cold weather I would just add a pair of tights and a sweater or jacket and I would be good to go.

Because the neckline has the interesting strap detail I decided to just add a gold fringe earring that I picked up from H&M and then this fun fur pouf that I could at Nordstrom Rack that had a pop of purple that was also in the scarf.

So there you have it, a polished fun casual look that I pulled together in 5 minutes!  Being stylish doesn’t have to be complicated ladies.  If you have good basics and some fun accessories you can put together something  very quickly.  And don’t be afraid to try new things.  I never thought I would do this colour combo and I love it.
