It’s highly likely that every woman has some version of a shirtdress in their closets right now. It’s an easy-to-wear dress for work and leisure, it’s flattering, and it’s available in a range of colours, fabrics, and patterns. The shirtdress is now a classic dress design that came to us in the 1950s from Christian Dior where the full skirt was paired with crinoline for a little extra pouf. The style – noted by collars and the shirt-style – was inspired by menswear at the time. Now, we see many clothing brands creating their own variations.

Last Friday, I went out of my fashion comfort zone, and I pulled out an all-over gingham outfit. I already had these pieces in my wardrobe, but it was only recently that I considered putting them together.

I was definitely inspired by Blair Eadie at Atlantic-Pacific and all the co-ordinating outfits that are popping into stores.

Did you know that Elon Musk’s (as in Tesla, Space X) mom is a model? I’m impressed. Maye Musk is beautiful.

Have you heard of the brand Scotch & Soda? I know that there’s at least one location in Toronto’s Eaton Centre, but beyond that, I don’t know where other stores are located. The few times I’ve been in, I’ve liked a lot of the merchandise, but it’s not a regular go-to shop for me. The other day, though, I was having a little online browse, and I came back to Scotch & Soda’s site. There are plenty of cute items currently in stock, but here are five white pieces that caught my attention.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
Lace-up detailing is nothing new in the fashion world. Whether you’re packing up for a warm vacation or cozying up for some quality hygge time, consider a little bit of a lace-up detail.
Is anyone else’s inbox flooded with news of activewear sales? I guess it’s the thing to talk about in January, so I’m jumping on that bandwagon and sharing some good-looking white activewear items (many of them are on sale, naturally).

For the past couple of years, I’ve been documenting some of my outfits on Instagram using #WhiteCabanaStyle. People seem to enjoy them, and it’s been amusing for me to look back at my outfits to see what I like or don’t like about them. What is easily noticeable as you scroll through the hundreds of outfits is that, regardless of season, black and white are my go-to colour options. Are you really surprised?
What do you think of fashion/style/outfit posts? Would you like to see more/less of #WhiteCabanaStyle on the blog (and Instagram)? Be honest. If it’s just-too-much-Jordana for your day, let me know!
For the last couple of weeks, pink has taken over White Cabana mostly through the world of interior design. Today, pink’s coming through brightly through fashion. Get ready to be inspired by some lovely outfits.
