Looks Inspired by Pema

After talking with Pema I felt really inspired, so here are two looks I put together based on my conversation with Pema and her outfit!

Look 1:
Pema’s style is cute and simple, so I wanted to channel that with this look. This outfit is perfect for the weather on a warm spring day, and the cute embroidered top reminds me that summer is just around the corner! That being said, this outfit is fit for the spring weather with the added jean jacket for those chilly winds.

Outfit 1

Products: Top- Miss Selfridge, Denim Jacket- Topshop, Leggings- Forever 21, Ballet Flats- Hot Topic, Bangles-ASOS

Look 2:
For this look, I added some color to the black and white palette of Pema's original look with some fun accessories. Also, with summer just around the corner and the weather heating up in Canada, I decided to swap out the tunic for a nice embroidered dress!

Outfit 2

Products: Sandals- Forever 21, Dress- National Jean Company, Earrings- Forever 21, Bracelets- Forever 21
