You don’t see a lot of over accessorizing here on Sweet as Fiction. Simplicity has always been my go-to for almost any occasion as it’s the most timeless way to make a statement without looking too overbearing. That being said, I’ve been working on including some more subtle, yet classic pieces to my wardrobe because when worn the right way, these can be a stylish additions to any look.
Take this hat, for example. I’ve seen it pretty much everywhere throughout the summer and never thought this particular style would work for me. Once I brought it home and incorporated it into some of my favourite looks, I fell head over heels! In fact, I’ve been tempted to add more of it in every colour imaginable (love this), but practicality first! I’ve always believed in investing in pieces that can be worn multiple ways and this is definitely one that can be incorporated for different occasions; travel, summer and everything in between! I just love that.

If you’ve been following my blog for awhile now you know that I am no stranger to mixing casual with the classic on a daily basis. Though in general, my looks can vary from laid-back to dressy, I normally pick my outfits based on my mood. There are days when you’ll see me adding sky high heels with the most casual of outfits to kind of mix it up a bit. Today’s look is no exception; very much a mix of casual and classic pieces all around.
This bag has been a favourite addition of mine since the beginning of the season and will continue to be a hot commodity moving into fall. What about you guys, what items do you have on rotation? Sharing more of my favourites below. xoxo
I can’t believe we are nearing the end of summer, where did the time go?! It’s been quite a ride the past couple of months and I can honestly say I am truly grateful for every person and opportunity that has come my way. For those of you that have a dream, don’t ever give up or be afraid to take the leap! When you work hard work and keep pushing forward, doors will open for you! For those of you that have been following my blog, thank you for always being so supportive. I appreciate each and every one of you and wanted to take this moment to say that.
Now onto today’s latest look. This summer has been all about statement tops, especially red stripes or gingham. I know stripes won’t be going anywhere anytime soon as I’ve been seeing more of it in collections to come for 2018. The top I am wearing in today’s post is very similar to Johanna Ortiz’s collection (found here), but is a fraction of the price! What I really love about it is that you can play with the styling of it, wearing the top back to front making it extremely versatile. When I saw it, I knew it was a great addition to my current wardrobe; definitely the epitome of summer ’17.
