Winging it

Dress worn as skirt - Old Navy (still available here), Long Sleeve T - H&M, Necklace - Olive + Piper (still available here), Sunglasses - Ray-Ban Aviators, Leather Clutch - Gap, Pumps - Zara

Sometimes, I find winging an outfit gives forces you to find a creative solution. This Old Navy dress is way too low cut for me, and since my mom has taken my sewing machine hostage, I decided to wear it anyway, with a long sleeve shirt over top. It was super comfortable, yet still polished. Now, if only I can master not stepping on my hem, we're all set!

Hope your week is off to a good start!

My Favorite Jeans

Shirt - J Crew, Jeans - Paige Denim, Suede Boots - Enzo Angiolini, Necklace - H&M (recent, Conscious Collection), Bangle - Joe Fresh, Belt - American Eagle, Clutch - Gap, Sunglasses - Fossil

Excuse the crazy hair, it was really windy that day! 

I think it's safe to say that this whole fashion blog thing is really happening. Hopefully, at the rate I'm going, I'll be posting 3 times a week... hopefully! I'm starting to understand the challenges of all you fashion bloggers out there: weather, wind, mushy spring ground, sun. But I'm learning as I go and having a blast with it. 

I have worn these jeans to death. I originally bought them on Ebay, being the cheapo that I am, and have to say they were really worth the hassle! I love Ebay by the way - a lot of my favorite pieces are from there. 

Hope you're all having a great day!

Spotted - T

Blazer - BB Dakota, Spotted-T - Joe Fresh, Black Skinnes - Old Navy, Sunnies - Joe Fresh, Bag - J Crew Edie, Flats - Banana Republic (still available here), Bracelet - Banana Republic

I scored this BB Dakota Blazer with leather lapels on Shopbop over Christmas break and I haven't regretted this purchase one second. I've worn this blazer so much - with dresses, jeans, skirts - it goes with anything. I'm also really happy with these new Joe Fresh sunnies - sturdy but classy!

Hope your week is off to a good start!

Casual Saturday

Jean Jacket - Old Navy, Dress - Jack by BB Dakota, Handbag - Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac, Wedges- Franco Sarto, Watch - BCBG Max Azria, Pearls - Local Jeweler

BARE LEGS?! What?! I'll fully admit, it was too cold that day for bare legs (and they are also too white!). But I thought this dress would look way cuter with a jean jacket and casual wedges. What can I say, I'm really anticipating summer!

Lady in Grey

Cardigan - Gap, Black skinnies - Old Navy, Bag - J Crew Edie (still available here), Wool hat - H&M, Shoes - Vince Camuto, Pearl earrings - Local Jeweler, Single twist ring - Etsy (here), Opal/ruby ring - gift from my mother

When I found this hat at H&M I practically ran with it to the cash register. I love the soft grey shade of it and, best of all, it actually fits my massive head! I had been looking for a feminine hat for a while and I'm so happy I found one. I won't be able to wear if for too long though, the weather is getting quite nice!

Neon Love

Trench, Scarf-print blouse - H&M, Sunglasses - Ray Ban, Watch - BCBG Max Azria, Rings - Local Jewelers and Magnolia, Bracelet - Winners, Neon Skinnies - Gap, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff MAC Mini, Shoes - Zara

I'm not the type of girl who picks color over black clothing, but these bright pink Gap skinnies totally spoke to me when I spotted them on their website. I love the skinny cut and how blindingly bright they are. This was my first outing with my new Zara shoes and I have to say they are mighty comfortable!

Big thanks to my sistah for taking these pictures for me! She's shaping up to be quite the photographer! :)

Shift & Trench

Hello and welcome to Bold Subtlety!

My name is Annick, a twenty something year old, who thought it might be fun to start a fashion blog!

You may know my from my beauty blog, thesmalllittlethingsinlife, but if you don't I'm sure we'll get to know each other a little better. 

Trench - H&M, Shift Dress - ASOS (still available here), Bag - Rebecca Minkoff MAC Mini
Tights - Winners, Shoes - Thrifted

Thought I'd start the blog off with something I wore out to a friends' birthday party. There's something so easy about a shift dress. I paired it with a trench, but I must say, it was way too cold to wear one that day! Oh Canada and its temperature fluctuations!

Have a great weekend and I hope to see you around again!
