Hello everyone! Today, I’m excited to share a contest and event that I’m a part of with Vaughan Mills. I love getting a good deal, and Vaughan Mills is one of the best places to score a pair of Nikes on sale, find cute jewelry at J. Crew or scour through Winners and HR2 for the best designer deals. I jumped at the chance to style an outfit and be a part of the Vaughan Mills Fashion Truck which has been giving out ice cream and prizes all around the city this week!
I styled an outfit for the van and was inspired by the De Stijl Dutch art movement. As you may know, I lived in Utrecht, Netherlands a couple years ago and had a chance to visit a De Stijl style house. Living there changed my life and I have always been inspired by the minimalism and primary colours of this style. My outfit was inspired by Mondrian, and I paired a cobalt blue crop top with a sheer pleated white skirt, both from HR2. I love the way the top has a really cool grid lace overlay, a completely unique detail! Next, I paired a vegan leather yellow purse, which reminded me of a Celine Trio bag at a fraction of the cost! I love the pop of the yellow against the blue. Lastly, I added pearl bracelets from H&M and Nine West white sandals for a cool vibe. This outfit would work great at a resort or for dinner by the water.
