Heading West...


tank top - c/o West 49, beach pants - c/o West 49, purse - Rebecca Minkoff, rings + black and gold bracelet - H & M, gold cuff - Banana Republic, necklace - ?, wedged sandals - Winners


When West 49 contacted me to pick out and style an outfit from their store, I was flattered they asked but I also thought, "Aren't I too old to shop there??" West 49 is a retailer of fashion and apparel, footwear, accessories and equipment that caters to the youth sports lifestyle. Well, I'm in my thirties and the only sport I play is Tetris so I was a bit weary of what they'd have in store for me. To my surprise I found this gorgeous Element Shannon crocheted lace tank top and these extremely comfortable printed Billabong beach pants that are totally age-appropriate for me. I have a feeling this outfit will be worn many times throughout the spring and summer this year, especially because these pants are so comfy I feel like I'm not wearing any! (But thankfully I am. Wouldn't want to flash anyone.)

West 49 stores are located across Canada. You can also check out their website. And you don't have to be in your teens to shop there ; ).

I feel too old for West 49 too, although I used to shop there a lot in high school, ha. Gotta say though, I am loving those pants!

"Well, I'm in my thirties and the only sport I play is Tetris" I loved this! ;) It's pretty much the same for me! But I think you came up with a really nice outfit! I'm loving the association of lace with this graphic print from your pants. Plus, your bag is lovely. Good job!

This is so gorgeous! Love how it's comfortable, but the print of the pants keep it stylish!
