THE MOTO JACKET

For those of you that have been following along on Sweet as Fiction know that my style stays consistent no matter what time of the year. It’s a bit elevated, always sticking to classics that be incorporated throughout each season; all in all: just chic. No matter what, my looks are put together with a bit of imperfection, which is how I like it.

When it comes to styling a look, I try to work around a piece that speaks to me. These are usually the investments; a bag or a coat and then I add accessories to elevate the look and tie it all together. Take this motto jacket for instance. It’s been an all time favourite of mine and I love finding new ways to wear it. It’s one of those pieces that work for most occasions and is incredibly versatile. It pairs so well with a white tee and ripped denim and can easily work just as well over a dress for that juxtaposition. It’s those classic pieces that are added to our wardrobe every season that just gets better with age. You can find the one I am wearing in today’s look here.

ALL WHITE

H&M TEE | WHITE JEANS | ROCKSTUD HEELSORA COAT | CHLOE NILE BAG

What better way to celebrate the beautiful weather than dressing in white! For the most part, I love wearing white head-to-toe, but I also love mixing it up by adding touches of neutrals for that hint of sophistication. Below are some tips on how to style all white this season:

CHOOSE LIGHT FABRICS

There’s nothing that compliments a tan better than an ‘all white’ look. It’s chic and it won’t draw in any extra heat. In order to look effortless (without thinking twice) look for pieces that are light and airy.

NEUTRAL ACCESSORIES

Add an accessory like these rock stud heels to finish off your look or a pair of nude heels (love these). They go with everything – plus they add length to your legs.

GO FOR CLASSICS

Nothing beats a classic white tee with good pair of white jeans. Choose a pair that flatters your body type and makes you feel amazing.

UTILIZE DIFFERENT TEXTURES

Don’t be afraid to mix textures; it adds dimension to your look and can look so chic when done right. Embroidered, lace and linen are my favourites.

Mixing whites with neutrals has always been my favourite combo. It creates that strong, yet understated impact, making it so universally appealing. Just love that! Adding yet another favourite: the beautiful cross-body bag from Chloe was the perfect finishing touch.

SPRING READY WITH H&M

Brought to you by H&M.

LOOK 1: TRENCH | WHITE TOP | PANTS | CLUTCH

With spring officially here, we can finally embrace the warm weather and freshen up our wardrobes with some fun and flirty staples. Though I often gravitate towards a darker colour palette throughout the year, this season I am all about welcoming pretty neutrals and bold hues come spring and on. In some ways, this is why spring is my favourite season! Other than signifying the end to a cold and gloomy winter, spring is so synonymous to a fresh start. Everything feels new and exciting; what better time than now to revamp your wardrobe.
At this point it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’ve been on the hunt for new pieces this season. The latest discoveries from my recent shopping finds were all from H&M, specifically their new 2018 spring line. Everything that I am wearing in today’s post is from them, and with so many great options, creating these classic spring looks couldn’t be easier! These are sure to be on rotation all season long. Check out my top 5 must-haves to building your spring wardrobe below:
DENIM JEANS 
One spring staple that I always stock up on are denim jeans. Though I haven’t met a denim pant I didn’t love, I love them solely on the fact that they can be dressed up or down so easily. This pair (under $50) happens to be a current favourite thanks to the distressed look and easy fit. As you know I’m all about those special details and this was one of those love at first sight picks.
BOLD COLOURED TRENCH
One iconic piece that never goes out of style. So minimalistic and classic, this is one piece that is the definition of spring awakening! Choose one in a pop of colour, like mine, found here (under $100).
FLIRTY WHITE TOP
Never met a white top I didn’t like and if it has those special details like an off-the-shoulder or ruffles I am basically sold. In fact, I think this is the perfect spring must-have top; wear it with everything from jeans to skirts, they add a little femininity to any look.
WHITE PANTS 
One item that is never not on the top of my spring must-have list! Versatile and so easy to style, find yourself the right pair and you’ll be wearing them with everything. Love these (under $50).
GO-TO ACCESSORIES
Look for an accessory you can wear every day. To me, that’s a bag that can fit all of my necessities (phone, cardholder, lipgloss etc.) This clutch (under $50) was a favourite find. Not only for it’s casual appeal, but for versatility. Great paired with any look, it can be dressed up or down and will be my go-to this spring. Love that! Also can we talk about this hat? The suede detailing really caught my eye and worked so well with today’s look. You can find it here (under $15).
My shopping philosophy has always been focused on building a wardrobe filled with classics that will stand the test of time. Thanks to H&M, I was able to revamp my wardrobe adding these classic must-haves. Needless to say I love each and every one and have definitely been eyeing a few more from their spring line. You can shop H&M’s spring collection online here and in stores which is available on March 21, 2018.
