sassy stripes

Dress- H&M (Thrifted); Belt- Thrifted; Shoes-Suzy Shier; Pantyhose- Forever 21; Ring- H&M; Nail Polish- Butterfly by Revlon; Sunglasses- Coach (c/o Marshalls)
I'm feeling sassy in stripes, continuing with day two of the Super Stripes Challenge and another outfit worn on my mini-vacay this past weekend at Mont Tremblant.
I'm linking up with Silverstyle: Trending Through the Decades- Pastel Edition because there's some pale pink in this dress somewhere!
No it's not your eyes playing a trick on you, these pantyhose really do sparkle and shine!

I'm also feeling sassy because I received this great pair of Coach aviator sunglasses (my fave!) in the mail the other day, courtesy of Marshalls, in preparation for their Ottawa store opening. As a bargain hunter extraordinaire, I can't wait to shop 'til I drop (I already have my eyes on quite a few pieces!) and am even using some of my overtime hours from work to attend the sneak peak (now that's commitment to style!)


 Imagine waking up to a view like that everyday! I can't complain though- the weather was summer-like today in Ottawa (+29'C with the humidity which is unheard of in March- we usually still have snow storms....knock on wood!)


  1. Oooh, very sassy! I like! And the view in that last picture is absolutely stunning...OHEMGEE pretty much describes it. Maybe a little quaint, too.

  2. I knew Forever 21 carried sparkle tights! I searched and searched and searched for them before Christmas, and didn't find any. They are great! And so is the dress!

  3. The stripes are such a pretty color and I LOVE your shoes! The sparkle tights look pretty cool too :)

  4. How wonderfully stylish. The tights are terrific.

  5. Look at you sassy girl! This dress looks awesome on you! I have a similar one from Old Navy in slightly different colors. I really love the pastels in this one though!

  6. it looks gorgeous there. nice couple photo. fun sparkly tights & outfit. :)

  7. I love the dress, and your nail polish color!
    I would definitely be excited for Marshalls - I don't know where I would shop without the TJX stores.
