printemps

moderngirlblog01

spring is upon us! like last year, i am still obsess with the white trend. if anything, i think my love for white has actually intensified! one of the recent addition to my collection are these chanel espadrilles. i wasn’t so sure about them at first, but after trying on the shoes in person, i knew i had to take them home. if you are interested in buying these cuties, be warned that they run a little small. many girls i know end up buying one size up from their normal sizes. the other white item is this pair of alc pants i found at nordstrom rack for 80% off original price! yep, these pants and the rag & bone striped top are the items that came with the price tags i triumphantly flaunted on instagram and twitter. it’s definitely one of those moments where i’m just as excited about the price as i am with the clothes. i love it when that happens!

Yvonne, what an adorable outfit. Stylish!

Did you buy the Céline box bag in a Céline boutique?
I’m looking for the same bag (same size, same color), but I have the feeling Céline is increasing the price for their bags every half a year.
Quite an investment. Any idea where I can find the bag for less money?
Thanks!

i did buy mine from the celine boutique. for less money… maybe ebay? you’d just have to be careful not buying from an authorized dealer because there are a lot of fakes out there.

Love the espadrilles, but also the clean simplistic look. I don’t think I could get away with the white pants myself though – I am a stain magnet!

The flats look amaze!! I’m sad because my local Chanel boutique doesn’t have my one size up in the color I want! One day I’ll get them.

I love your effortless look. Beautiful lady!

Hi Yvonne, I’m in LOVE with your bag. I love the Chanel shoes too but I don’t think I can pull it off. Love it on you though. You look chic as always.

Yvonne, you are just too fabulous. Always. I LOVE the white pants, and 80% off? Even better… Those Chanel espadrilles are pretty amazing – I love how they’re casual and chic, maybe one day I’ll buy myself a pair 🙂 Oh but that bag… perfect!

Hi!

I came across your blog via Victoria’s blog, and I enjoy your style! I love how you pull off the red Tom Ford lipstick! I have a GA true red lipstick that I want to wear more, but I haven’t quite mastered the application/look yet. More practice.. 🙂

Great finds Yvonne. There’s a Nordstrom Rack here while I’m visiting my family so I hope I get lucky too. Your black and white outfit outfit is so comfy chic. I adore the Chanel espadrilles and your simple accessories .

Well, I was just about say how much I love this ‘clean and crisp’ look but it looks like someone already beat me to it!! 🙂

But anyways, I’m loving the minimalist, simplistic feel of this oufit. You can’t go wrong with clean stripes and white! Especially at the price!

I was in Seattle over Christmas (I’m from Victoria, BC) and after spending an hour or so in Nordstrom, I walked out and discovered Nordstrom Rack. I was in heaven!

Have a lovely day,
Carly

how often do you come to seattle? our nordstrom and rack is definitely the best ones i’ve seen. of course, it is the flagship store, so… it better be!

Love the clean and crisp look of white pants! I recently just added a pair of destroyed denim skinnies to my closet and I can’t wait to wear them when it warms up a bit!
