Happy Sunday! I know it’s a bit later in the day, but better late than never! Welcome back to another “Outfits Of The Week” post! I think if I were to describe last week’s outfits in one word it’d be “cozy”. I think comfort was unexpectedly the key component to all of these outfits. Like chill vibes? It’s definitely not what I’m used to but maybe this is me evolving? Maybe this is what Free People is doing to me?! I’m not mad about it! There are definitely bits of each outfit that still stay true to me.
Here’s what I wore last week!
Outfit #1: Once a month, Free People hosts a yoga event on a Sunday. Sometimes (and this is what happened to me this month) you get scheduled an opening shift the day of and have the choice to participate. I had never done yoga before so I thought, “why not?!” I actually quite liked it. It was nice to just lay there and listen to my breathing. It was peaceful. I’m not used to calming my mind so it was refreshing to be able to do that. It also made me realize that I really do think way too much. I think my brain is constantly in overdrive. I think I’ll go to the one next month as well! After doing yoga, I figured I’d wanna be comfy and keep my “zen” lol. So I packed a comfy outfit to change into and this is what I wore! I chose to wear comfy (but still chic) sweatpants from Durumi (@thedurumi). I kept my sports bra because it’s from Free People (and I didn’t sweat!) and threw my Jojo pullover sweater on top (which is also from Free People). I wore Free People socks (who am I? You’d think I work there or something ha-ha) with the New Balance sneakers my boyfriend got me for Christmas. Then I added The Heathers scrunchie from Twentyseven (@twentyseventoronto) and my dumpling bag from SHEIN.
Outfit #2: Kept it cozy with baggy jeans and an oversized crew neck sweater. These jeans are TOPSHOP’s “Crop” jeans. I’m not sure if they carry them in-store anymore but they’re probably my favourite pair of jeans that I own right now. The crew neck sweater is one that I thrifted while visiting Montréal last summer. It’s B.U.M. EQUIPMENT. Do you guys remember this brand while growing up in the 90s? I was overwhelmed with nostalgia when I saw it so I had to buy it lol. For shoes, I wore the same New Balance sneakers and for a bag, I wore this new thrift find that I’m absolutely IN LOVE with. I recently went thrift shopping with some friends that I’ve met while working at Free People and it was so much fun! There is going to be a vlog of that trip so stay tuned! Make sure you’re subscribed to me on YouTube! Anyways, I bought this bag while I was at Value Village with them and I’m so happy that I did. I love the western vibe. I love the colour. I think the shape is trendy right now. It’s perfect.
Outfit #3: Even though I’m no longer working at TOPSHOP, I still browse their website here and there. I was there for 5 years! I obviously love the brand and their clothes. While I was perusing the website one day I noticed they were having some serious markdowns. Then I noticed that this dress that I had been keeping an eye on for a really, really long time finally went down to $20!! I figured it was fate so I bought it, and look how cute it is! I love how I can throw this piece on and have it speak for itself. I literally don’t have to do anything else to this outfit but add a bag and some shoes. I added the same thrifted bag and threw on my black thrifted cowboy boots and that’s it!
Outfit #4: I totally forgot about this pleather jacket until I saw it everywhere on Instagram the week prior. I was like, “I have something so similar, why am I not wearing it?!!” It’s so cool. I mean, I feel pretty cool in it. Underneath I wore these check trousers from TOPSHOP and a sheer black turtleneck with my Adidas sneakers to be “cozy”. I also wore the thrifted bag (again). What I love most about this outfit is how it let’s my new favourite necklace stand out. This is the “Tarot Sun Necklace” from Mejuri and I probably talked about it in my last post but I thought I’d mention it again. I am so in love with it and I feel like it’s a part of me now!
Outfit #5: My favourite outfit of the week! And it’s still my favourite even though my boyfriend said I looked like a stoner on top and a cowboy on the bottom. *rolls eyes* I really loved this look!!! I love when I discover a different look that I love. I got this new “Ruby jacket” from Free People for 50% off and had to wear it the very next day. It’s so lovely. It’s this olive colour, kinda moldy-looking lol. I love it. It has this texture that makes it look well-loved so I think it’s only going to look greater once it really is well-loved! The quality of this jacket is amazing and I can’t wait to wear it at night during the summer with a cute dress or some cut-off shorts. I’m honestly squealing with excitement!!! I can’t wait for summer. It can come any day now. Anyways, for the rest of this outfit, I wore my Iron Maiden graphic t-shirt with my knitted midi skirt and my black cowboy boots. For accessories, I wore the same thrifted bag (duh) and a beanie for once! This beanie I got from Durumi and I think they have such a great selection right now! Check out their Instagram or visit them downtown on Queen Street West!
That concludes the second “Outfits Of The Week” post of 2020! I hope you guys are enjoying these. If you’d like to see something different, please let me know!
Until next time!
