I wear white jeans year-round which is wrong in terms of traditional style rules (no white after labour day!), but I think that is why it looks so good!

Practical it is not (I’ve actually shed a tear over ruined white jeans that I wore on a rainy, muddy day), but if you have the right weather and the right style they look amazing.

I think in the winter they look so great because the sky is so dull – white looks so clean on a dreary day.

The other thing not condusive to a white outfit is having a toddler. Mine has an uncontrollable addiction to both mud and ketchup, which is the perfect storm for an outfit disaster.

This look is new except for my Louis Vuitton scarf and Louis Vuitton speedy bag.

I don’t discriminate when it comes to shopping for outfits – I’ll wear anything from affordable brands like Forever 21, Zara, and H&M, to more mid-range like Aritzia, Club Monaco, and sometimes I splurge beyond, but not often.

When it comes to accessories, that is when I splurge. I always have a short list of 2-3 items I’m saving for over the year to add to my accessories collection, and because these items are more high-end, I tend to stear towards the classics.

Although I often love limited edition collections from designers, their price point can be difficult for me to splurge on if I know it’s so trendy it’s only going to be fashionable for a few seasons.

This Louis Vuitton scarf could never go out of style. The classic monogram pattern is timeless, and the colour is neutral enough to layer into almost any outfit.

I really love it as a stand-alone piece as well. It’s so gorgeous it deserves the spotlight.

My Louis Vuitton Speedy Damier canvas bag also follows my style rules of being a classic piece that won’t fall out of style over the years.

Hope you are having a great week!
