Outfit Post: How To Wear White Jeans

Heart Jewellery Laser Cut

Happy Love Day!! I got sent some lovely white jeans to test out from Simply Be so I thought I’d spend my Valentine’s Day wearing a fun love themed outfit! I wanted to try some of Simply Be’s Sculpt jeans from their range so I went for these white ones as I haven’t owned a pair of white trousers for about ten years and I thought it would be a fun challenge to mix up my wardrobe. So how to wear white jeans?

I absolutely love the contrast of bright white with this lovely hot bright pink so I really wanted to team the two together. My hair is always a natural way to add pink into my outfit and I usually match it with this glossy pink statement heart necklace from my Etsy shop, perfect for today’s Valentine’s theme. I chose a different shade of pink for my jumper to create more of a gradient of colour instead of being overly matchy-matchy and I just had to wear my new glittery pink shoes! I hope this helps you with how to wear white jeans!

Best Fitting Jeans Sculpting Jeans

The Sculpt jeans are exactly what they say on the tin – with this darted shape in the back to make your bum look perky and the hidden control area in the front that is like wearing hold-me-in pants, they’re definitely a lovely fit and shape. I’ve had size 14 jeans from Simply Be before and they’ve been quite on the large side, but these Sculpt jeans fit like a glove so I’d recommend them as true to size. I would definitely suggest them as smart, going-out jeans rather than for every day wear as they’re quite tight and restrictive, but they do make you feel quite bad ass for special nights out!

What are your plans for today? I’m spending the day with Stu and my Mum, making nachos for tea and watching films. I hope you’ve got something nice planned whether it’s with someone you love or just some special alone time full of self love!

SkyPod vs General Admission at CN Tower, Toronto

CN Tower, Toronto

A question we were asking ourselves during our trip to Toronto was whether it was worth it to pay the additional $12 to get access to the SkyPod at the CN Tower. We tried to look for opinion online, but we couldn’t get a definitive answer so the only way to find out was to give it a shot! So… SkyPod vs General Admission at CN Tower – which is better?

Despite our trip being at the end of September/Early October the day we set aside to go up the CN Tower was glorious sunshine and clear blue skies – unbelievable luck! We did visit out of season though so there were barely any queues, but I have heard it can take a couple of hours during the Summer.

Is the SkyPod worth it, CN Tower

CN Tower, Tallest Building For 30 Years

The extra $12 might not seem like a lot, but general admission to the CN Tower is already $36 per adult (approximately £21) so it’s on the pricey side, especially if there’s a group of you. However, the view from the CN Tower is hands down the best view of a city I’ve seen so far – due to it’s insane height (it held the record for the tallest free standing building for over 30 years until the Burj Khalifa was built in 2007!) it towers above the vast array of other tall buildings in Toronto, leaving the view completely clear for miles and miles.

Outdoor Sky Terrace at CN Tower

General admission tickets gain you access to two observation levels – 1122ft and 1136ft above the ground. The higher, LookOut Level boasts two walls of floor to ceiling windows which are pretty incredible. The entire floor is inside, for those of you that feel a bit wobbly about heights.

The lower level has two attractions – the Glass Floor with clear views all the way to the ground below and the Outdoor Sky Terrace where you can really feel the breeze! It might make you feel a little more unsafe on this level, but the outdoor terrace is completely covered with mesh panelling and the glass floor is strong enough to hold the weight of 35 moose!

The Glass Floor is disappointing at CN Tower, Toronto

Even out of season the Glass Floor was absolutely packed with people standing, laying and playing around on it so don’t get your hopes up for getting a great photo. The area is quite small (just 256 sq ft) and there is no queuing system so it’s a bit of a free for all and the lighting is so dim so that taking a decent photo is really hard with the contrast of the bright daylight outside. Not a fan. The Outdoor Sky Terrace was OK and it was fun to really feel the height due to the feeling of the wind on your face and the street noise from below, but the mesh covering spoils 95% of the views.

SkyPod vs General Admission at CN Tower, Toronto

Access to the SkyPod is from the LookOut floor and you can purchase tickets before or at the LookOut level, allowing you to shoot up another 33 storeys to a smaller observation deck. The SkyPod felt a lot more exclusive than the general admission areas and it’s angled windows allow you to see straight down underneath you as well, giving a brilliant view of the Edge Walkers on the roof of the 360 restaurant below. We spent most of our time here and I definitely recommend it if you’re not a fan of crowds and like to take lots of pictures. There’s also two hidden ‘porthole’ type windows at either side of the elevator that offer a really unique view of the city below as well as another circular window straight opposite the elevator when you exit onto the SkyPod floor.

So what’s the verdict on SkyPod vs General Admission at CN Tower? You can’t see much further from the SkyPod than you can from the LookOut level, but the angles of the window allow you to see a different side to the panoramic views that you don’t get below. If you’re obsessed with city views like I am, I definitely recommend paying the addition $12 for the SkyPod, but if you’re just looking for a quick visit to say you’ve been then it might not be for you.

The CN Tower is next to the Rogers Centre in downtown Toronto and costs $36 for general admission, with some extra options available.
