What I Wore Last Week

Another one of these! Are you rolling your eyes yet? Or do you actually kinda, sorta enjoy them now? I’m slowly getting up to date! I’m currently sitting on a train while I write this and I actually find this really productive. Maybe I should take more train rides to get more blog posts done? I don’t think my bank account would appreciate that lol.

Outfit #1: This look was created around these “special” jeans. @alyssainthecity is one of my favourites on Instagram and she wore these jeans with really wide legs. Here’s the photo here:

Her legs looked long af. Anyways, I noticed we carry a similar silhouette at TOPSHOP and made sure to get an extra long length to recreate the look! These jeans are the “Crop” jeans. I got a 24/32. I added a leopard belt, my favourite blouse that Emma Roberts owns as well (I’ve talked about this before), and this corduroy button-up that I used as an extra layer/jacket! I wore the pearl bag from Forever21, gold hoop earrings, and my white booties to complete the look.

Outfit #2: OKKKKK. There’s this brand of bags that I have been obsessed with since Fashion Week in Copenhagen. Nunoo bags are so freaking cute. I follow them on Instagram. They have lovely colour ways. The brand was created by these two sisters that have the sickest of styles. This outfit was inspired by them. Here’s the inspo photo(s) right here:

Normally I would think denim shorts and tights to be a little juvenile. Like, I look 16 years-old already, we don’t need to make this worse, amirite? These women nail it though and I was like, “Damn, I wanna nail this too!” So ya, this is it. I added my poofy sleeve blouse, my leopard booties, layered some necklaces, and also added my F21 bag. Would have LOVED to add a Nunoo bag in this mix but you know, some things are better dreamt?

Outfit #3: GINGHAM BB. I don’t know what it is, but your girl has to be vvv careful she doesn’t switch up her wardrobe for like, everything GINGHAM. I’m obsessed. The print is so cute, no?! I loved the way these pants looked with my cowboy boots. I have to try to not wear this combo too much lol. The top is old TOPSHOP. It’s still in pretty good condition for being a white top! Normally, or maybe it’s just me, white tops start to look a little yellow-y after a while, but not this one! For some colour I added my yellow printed headband and for a bag I wore my straw/raffia bag that I find so so cute. This is such a summer look and I can’t wait for it to start actually feeling like summer!

Outfit #4: These pants are 4 years old. Now that I think of it, I think I’ve been recycling a lot of old pieces lately and I’m proud of that. There are just some pieces that can last you forever and I think these pants are no exception. The print is perfect for this season. I love the combination of neutral colours. It looks *great* (as seen in my photo) with a white t-shirt. To complete this look I added my corduroy cropped jacket for some texture, black sandals, and my pearl bag from F21!

Outfit #5: You’ll start to notice that during spring and summer, I like to wear a lot of denim pieces. I’m talking denim in all forms. Denim jackets especially. This dress is actually one of my favourites. It’s from the Petite section at TOPSHOP and I purchased it last year! I love how it fits. It just hugs my body in all the right areas (this is rare for me). I wore a graphic t-shirt underneath it because it’s just not that warm yet to wear it by itself. I added my snakeskin booties and last but not least, my silver woven shoulder bag.

There you have it! Another “What I Wore Last Week” for the books! I hope you enjoyed it! I think I have about two more to write lol.

Until next time!

CHERRY BLOSSOM SZN.

Hi!! I’m back with the second outfit taken by Jemilla (@jemillajems)! Most “Torontonians” know that in late April to early May there are cherry blossoms in High Park that last about a week to a week and a half. A LOT (and I mean A LOTTTTTT) of people enjoy visiting them during this time because they’re so pretty, and a great photo opportunity! I was one of the crazies that decided to go for a photo op. Gotta do it for the blog/’gram, y’know what I’m sayin’?? It wasn’t the greatest decision. I’ll be honest. We went on a statutory holiday which meant that the park was PACKED. It was really hard to get people out of the background of these photos so we had to get creative. I love how they turned out though! For future reference, however, do notttt go on a holiday if you’re looking to get nice photos. Kids be running everywhere.

I knew that we were going to High Park ahead of time so when I was planning my outfit, I definitely made sure to keep the cherry blossoms in mind. I thought a neutral outfit would let the cherry blossoms stand out so I chose an all-white look. I chose a plain white t-shirt, white “Mom” jeans, and okay, some red/non-white sandals for a pop of colour! Everything I’m wearing in these photos is from TOPSHOP. The white jeans and the straw/raffia purse are recent purchases that I am very happy with. I think I’ll get so much wear out of both of them this season!

That’s it, that’s all! I hope you guys enjoyed these photos and this outfit because it was a little tougher than usual to capture lol.

Until next time!

What I Wore Last-Last Week

Yes, “last-last week”. I’m still a little behind on these weekly outfit photos but I’m determined to catch up! To be honest, this could be from last, last, LAST week – but who’s counting?!! I like lotsa outfit inspo, don’t you lol?

Outfit #1: These picnic blanket wide leg pants have been exactly what I wanted and more. I find myself wearing them WAY MORE than I had ever expected. Like, I thought I would have donated them by now but they’re still here! Really just wanted the pants to shine and to add some fun accessories so I just wore a cropped t-shirt on top. It’s in a very cute custard yellow colour and I love it. I wore these “mama-sized” (it’s what they call them, I swear!) pearl hoop earrings that I am now obsessed with. I think they’re super cool and add spunk to literally everything. I also wore that transparent tortoiseshell purse that I’ve talked about so much in my “April Favourites 2019” post (give that a read if you haven’t already ;))! My shoes are from last year and I got them in black as well. They’re super comfy and easy to slip on with *almost* every look!

Outfit #2: I don’t think there’s been a week where I didn’t wear my cowboy boots on at least one of the days lol. I think my cowboy boots look great with denim and great with white. For this outfit, I wore a denim skirt that I have had for SO LONG but it still fits me and does everything I want from a denim mini skirt. I paired it with my neon sleeveless sweater/top and added an old favourite, my check blazer with my initials embroidered in the sleeve! For accessories I wore a pearl hair clip, my “A” pendant necklace from Amazon, gold hoop earrings, and my Gucci baby.

Outfit #3: I don’t know if I’ve been vocal about this (LOL jk), but I am completely head-over-heels in love with everything Ariana Grande. She’s a goddess and I love her. Periodt. We’ve had two shirts come through but for TOPMAN and not TOPSHOP. Don’t ask me why! But that clearly didn’t stop me from purchasing one of them. The other shirt was black and I felt like that was boring compared to this cool nude-y pink colour. It is oversized so I feel like I have a few constraints when trying to create an outfit. I have to think about not looking like a pile of fabric and making sure whatever I wear on my bottom is more fitted. This time I chose to wore my black Jamie jeans with the western buckles down the sides of the legs. I think it brings more to the look instead of wearing just plain skinny jeans. For shoes I wore the same grey heeled sandals from “Outfit #1”. And finally, I added a shell choker necklace and two black snappy hair clips (is that what they’re called lol?) to complete this somewhat 90s look.

Outfit #4: These pants/wide leg jeans were $24 on clearance. I couldn’t say no to them because a) they’re my size in Petite and b) they’re super comfortable (like wearing pjs)!!! The draw string is a cute touch. It makes them pretty casual so I paired it with a “fancier”/more girly blouse. I wore this top a lot last summer and I’m looking forward to wearing it some more. I love the shoulder detailing and I also love that I can wear it without a bra (tmi?). To spice this outfit up a little, I accessorized with my large heart shaped pearl earrings, my headband that’s covered in birds, and of course, Gucci baby. I also wore the black version of those heeled sandals for shoes.

Outfit #5: This printed skirt has been harder to style than I thought. I just have no clue what to wear as a top! I know I could probably use any coloured graphic t-shirt or blouse but I’m not loving anything in my wardrobe currently. So I stuck with a black crop top and a denim jacket, and just wore fun accessories to make it a little more fun. I got this cute bag made out of fake pearls from Forever 21. It really reminds me of a Shrimps purse but I got it for a much, much lower price. I got it for $20. It was also during a 30% off promotion on all their bags, so I took that as a sign. I’ve been wearing it a lot since I’ve bought it and have a feeling it’s going to be a “May favourite”. For the rest of this outfit, I wore silver heart shaped hoop earrings and my snake print booties!

As always, everything I wear is from TOPSHOP from over a span of almost 5 years. That’s how long I’ve been working for the brand, so I’ve accumulated a lot! If it’s not from TOPSHOP, I’ll mention where it’s from. Don’t you worry :))

Until next time!

I like โ€˜em chunky.

Didn’t think I’d have more outfit posts this soon, did ya? Well you have three more to look forward to (if you look forward to them at all)! Jemilla (@jemillajems) worked her magic again and took some great shots of me last week. I honestly CAN’T WAAAITTT to share them all with you. I feel like the more we do this, the more comfortable we get and it shows in our end product! I love it! All these pictures and all the outfits were taken at High Park. It’s kind of like Toronto’s version of Central Park? Emphasis on the “kind of”. It’s really big and there were a lot of great photo ops while we were there! Mind you, there were so many people there the day we went. I had a lot of people watching me and a lot of people kept getting in the background of the shots. It took a lot of patience! So if you don’t have patience, go a day during the week where less people are likely to be there. The outfit I’m sharing with you today was taken near a food truck and somewhere amongst large rocks and trees lol. Here’s the look!

I wore this outfit because I loved this metallic slip dress that we just got at TOPSHOP. I bought it because I think it’ll be easy and breezy once summer finally gets here. It’s probably best worn for a birthday or some other kind of fancy/dramatic event, but I want to wear it casually and I’m always up for a challenge! I added chunky combat boots and a denim jacket. I had originally pictured it with a t-shirt underneath, no jacket. The t-shirt I picked was too bulky, so I had to scratch that idea. I still think it turned out well! If I were to wear this outfit again, I think I would add more colour somehow. You guys know me ;))

Anyways, hope you’re ready for the next two outfits! I’ll be sharing them within the next couple of weeks! Thanks for reading!

Until next time!

Spring, where are ya?

Helllooooo! I’m here with the third outfit of my last session with Jemilla. This day was super cold and the sun didn’t really want to come out, so I decided to get some early Spring/Summer photos. Makes sense, right? DON’T let these photos deceive you. Jems is a wizard. I am shocked that I did not catch the flu when we were out taking these photos. I’ll be honest, I had my puffer jacket (my warmest jacket) with me and had it on in between photos. We would reach a location, pose, get some shots, throw on my jacket and warm up, pose, get some shots, etc. lol. And you know what upsets me more? These photos were taken about a month ago and it’s STILL chilly outside. My hands were feeling a bit numb while I was outside yesterday and I’m quite upset about it. Like hello?! It’s almost June! Spring, where are ya?!!

As always, and I swear it’s not super intentional. I mean, I do work at TOPSHOP so can you really blame me if 80% of my wardrobe is from there? I would try to branch out but like, I wouldn’t really wear it anywhere. I can’t wear it to work. Well, I could but it would be annoying to send business elsewhere ha-ha. Okay, so maybe it is intentional. I really do love our brand though. I can achieve any look I want with TOPSHOP. For this outfit I wore this cute sleeveless neon sweater/top with my favourite jeans right now: Editors. The Editor jeans are like Straight jeans but they’re looser and give me that boyfriend-look without having a dropped crotch LOL. You get what I’m sayin’? They’re great jeans and we have like 3 washes so maybe these guys will stick around for more than just one season! My fingers are crossed. For shoes, I wore these pink-y nude booties with the “hardwood” heel. You guys have seen these before! For accessories, I wore my favourite initial pendant necklace that I love so much I bought a back-up. I also wore a pearl hair clip from my favourite Korean boutique on Queen West, Durumi (@thedurumi). They honestly have the cutest things in there. Part of me is scared to spread the word because I don’t want all the cute things to be gone before I get there aha-ha! Finally, I wore my little snakeskin crossbody bag but I tucked the chain inside and just used the top handle. I love this bag!! I got it around Christmas time and she still makes me sooo happy!

So that’s the look! I hope you like it! If you want more looks from me, let me know! If you have any ideas for blog posts, I’m open to hearing those as well. Just leave me a comment in the section below :))

Until next time!

April Favourites 2019

Okay. I know we’re already a week (or two lol) into the month of May, but I haven’t had time to write my “April Favourites” because I got back from Cuba on the 4th. I apologize if this sounds like an excuse but better late than never, right?! Also: Happy Victoria Day!

To make up for it, I think I have a decent bunch of favourites to talk about and I’m excited to share ’em! Here are my favourite things/what I loved during the month of April:

1. Game of Thrones: I’m pretty sure this is the only show I watched during the month of April – and until yesterday I was still watching it because the last episode of Season 8/THE ENTIRE SERIES HAPPENED LAST NIGHT. What did you guys think of it?!! Disappointed? Satisfied? .. Loved it? Anyways, being the genius that I am, I thought around the end of March that I should re-watch EVERY SINGLE BLOODY EPISODE of GoT before the new season started on April 14th. I gave myself TWO weeks to watch 7 SEASONS OF GAME OF THRONES. It was literally like, 3-4 episodes a night. It was messed. up. I was a little behind on Season 8 Episode 1 but it all worked out! I avoided spoilers and overall I’m glad I did it! If you still have never watched an episode of this series, I highly recommend you get on it. Especially now that it’s officially over, you can binge the entire freaking thing! No time constraints! You’ll LOVE it, I swear.

2. “A” Necklace – Cรฉline-inspired? Chloe-inspired? I know they’ve both done really nice big initial pendant necklaces, but I forget where this particular necklace originated from because (*ahem*) I got this one on AMAZON. It was only $12!!! Can you believe it?!?! I get so many compliments on it and I love it so much that I’ve bought a back-up just in case anything bad happens to my first one.

3. Jade roller: I know a lot of people probably have mixed feelings about these jade roller things. I think there’s also a pink one made from rose quartz or whatever? I personally don’t know where I stand with these contraptions but I can tell you that I do feel a difference and I do like the feeling it gives me while using it. Honestly, it could all be in my head. It’s meant to do a ton of really great things for your face like: reduce puffiness and under eye circles, stimulate blood circulation, tighten pores, brighten your complexion, etc. I can’t say I really see any of this happening to my face but it feels good! And if this is happening to my face and I don’t even know it, that’s sick! I won’t complain! I know some of these things can be like $50 and I promise you that I did not pay that much for something I was unsure about. I bought my jade roller at Winners for $8. If you’re curious about a jade roller and would like to give it a shot, go to Winners! It’ll make you feel less guilty if you end up not seeing/feeling a difference at all! Is it real jade? Who knows lol.

4. AirPods: I think I bought these last month. I can’t quite remember because I can’t picture my life without them anymore lol. I never knew how much I would appreciate not having a cord attached to my earphones. I don’t have to worry about them getting caught or untangling them every time I go to use them. AirPods are amazing. I am pro-AirPods. I know some people think they’re stupid, a waste of money or just for looks but I love mine. A charge lasts about a week and I use them to commute for 40min to an hour to work and back! I work full-time so I think that’s really good! Get yourself some, you won’t regret it!

5. Skincare: Let me start off by saying, I have no clue what got into me last month. I am a soap and water kind of gal. I am not high maintenance when it comes to washing/taking care of my face and I never have been. Is that terrible? I usually just buy whatever is on sale at Shoppers Drug Mart and my boyfriend makes fun of me for it lol. He got me the Drunk Elephant “Lala Retro Whipped Cream” moisturizer and I don’t think I can use a Shoppers’ moisturizer ever again. This Drunk Elephant one is so good! Aside from a new face moisturizer and a jade roller, I’ve been using sheet face masks a lot lately. I’ve also decided to start using Bio Oil more religiously because I have some pimple scars that kind of bother me. They’re recent scars, too! I tried a sample of SK-II (I really wanted to play with skincare!!) and it broke me out pretty bad. All in all, it’s been a great month for my skin. I’ve realized that not everyone needs to use the fancy/expensive stuff. Some people’s skin only need the basics! Like water! I’ve been drinking a lot more water lately and it definitely shows despite that I still think I could be drinking more.

6. Sea/ocean-inspired jewellery: I’m sure a bunch of you that pay close attention to trends or follow a lot of fashion accounts on Instagram have noticed a trend in jewellery this Spring/Summer season. SHELLS ARE EVERYWHERE. Anything related to the sea or the ocean has been popping up in some form of jewellery, whether it be earrings, a bracelet, a necklace, etc. I got lobster earrings a few weeks ago from TOPSHOP and I adore them. I got a bunch of shell anklets from the Philippines that I have stashed away for when my legs can fully come out lol. I also bought a matching necklace on Amazon for $8. I have these hoops with sparkly shells dangling from them. I have these other dangly ones with REAL shells hanging from them. I’m a little obsessed, okay?! I’m sure this collection will grow as we get further and further into the season. TBH there’s a pair of starfish earrings that I’ve been losing sleep over from @thedurumi on Instagram. I’ve been meaning to stop by their shop and get them but I’ve been too busy :(( Anyways, what do you guys think of this trend???

7. Tortoise/clear bag from TOPSHOP: This was probably my most worn bag aside from my Gucci baby. I took it with me to Cuba because it’s so easy and so cute. I like that it’s transparent and I can find everything easily. I’ve also received a ton of compliments so I feel kinda cool when I wear it lol. Also: it fits WAY more than you think it would!

8. The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon: FULL DISCLOSURE: I only bought this book and was interested in reading it when I found out that Charles Melton was playing a lead role. Does this make me a terrible person? I’m sorry! I just find him so handsome! I can’t wait to see the movie when it comes out on May 17th. Are any of you excited? As far as the story goes, I think it’s pretty cute. Whether or not I believe it can really happen to a person is another story. It’s basically about a young couple that falls in love pretty quickly but life’s not exactly on their side. I know that’s really vague but trust me, it’s different from most love stories like this. It’s pretty unique and I think it’ll be a good movie! I would give you more details but you guys should know by now that if I say anything more I’ll probably ruin the entire story for you.

9. CUBA: Where do I begin?!! I think if I have to pick my favourite thing about Cuba, it would be the sun & the ocean. I loved Havana (especially old Havana because the old buildings were amazing) but we don’t have heat and an ocean like they do! I’m obsessed with both. I swear that I belong near the ocean and somewhere hot. Cuba has the best beaches that I have ever seen. The water is so blue! I know the sun isn’t great for your skin but I feel happier with a tan! I’m currently working on a little project that will show you how much fun I had in Cuba but I don’t want to share it just yet! Just know that my trip will be fully disclosed very, very soon!

And with that, I think I’ll end the blog post here! I’m pretty behind with posts but I have a line-up that I’ve been slowly chipping away at. Just know that lots of content will be up and more frequently if everything goes as planned!

Until next time!

What I Wore Last-Last Week

Hey everyone! I meant to post this while I was in Cuba but honestly, I don’t know what I was thinking!!! I didn’t have any time to really sit and blog. I mean, who wants to sit and blog when you can be laying on the beach and soaking some sun? The trip was amazing. I plan to share more about the trip in a later post so stay tuned! Normally, I would just let this #OOTW post go and just write about more recent outfits that I’ve worn since I’ve been back, but I like these ones too much! I have to share them. So although they might not be that relevant to me right now (because I am like 4 shades darker lol), I hope they’re still something for you guys to enjoy!

Outfit #1: My cowboy boots came out to play, again! It was warmer this week so I was able to let my legs out! Woo-hoo! ;)) This is my favourite and only blue denim pinafore, and I’ve worn it a lot within the last couple of years! I am so glad that it’s slowly getting warmer and that I can finally start wearing it again. Underneath my pinafore I wore a ribbed polo t-shirt with a three-quarter zip. Iโ€™ve spoke about it before but I canโ€™t get over how great it fits! I also added this printed headband for some colour to this outfit, some silver hoops earrings and of course, my Gucci baby.

Outfit #2: I got a lot of compliments on this outfit and to be honest with you, I was inspired by the lobster earrings that I was wearing (which you cannot see in this photo lol). I wore my yellow cropped pants and a thrifted โ€œmaybe real or maybe fakeโ€ Gucci sweater? It was $20 at Value Village so I doubt it, but I love it and it looks sick paired with yellow! This day here was the beginning of an obsession with this transparent tortoiseshell purse. I love this purse!!! It fits more than you’d expect and I love that I can see everything that’s in it so it’s much easier to find my metro pass or my house keys. For shoes I wore my white booties and to mix it up a little (because there was finally some sun), I wore these pink cat-eye sunglasses from Aldo! Iโ€™ve always been a sucker for their sunglasses.

Outfit #3: A Canadian tuxedo day. My favourite Binx jeans from TOPSHOP and my favourite cropped denim jacket with a raw hem seems to be the best denim-on-denim look for me! The washes match pretty well and I love the way they fit together! To add some colour/personality, I wore my leopard boots and added a gold chain belt. For a top, I wore this ribbed sleeveless top that has a matching skirt. You might recognize it from a previous blog post but since then Iโ€™ve found that it goes and looks good with a lot in my wardrobe. Iโ€™m very happy I bought it :))

Outfit #4: This is an oldie but a goodie! The grey slip dress I’m wearing is from a couple years ago and I found it in a bag that I had previously packed full of clothes I wanted to give away! I forgot that I had left it in there! I clearly couldn’t let it go. However, it has these really thin straps and I felt that it was a little too much exposure for work, so I threw on one of my favourite printed blouses over it. It’s this blouse covered in tigers and I am shocked at how good the quality is of it. I mean, itโ€™s not 100% silk or anything like that. It just looks the same way it did when I bought it and I’ve washed it sooo many times! I wore my patent combat boots for shoes and added my transparent tortoiseshell purse. For jewellery, I wore a cute hair clip, my chunky lock necklace, and another pair of hoop earrings! I have so many versions of hoop earrings that I feel like I could do a whole blog post on them. Should I???

Outfit #5: This is my FAVOURITE suit! My power suit! That suit that just makes you feel so good? You know those ones? I forget about this suit because when it’s this bright of a colour, I feel like I can’t wear it too often or people will start to notice. Do I really care? Not really. But it is definitely a suit you canโ€™t forget! Itโ€™s from TOPSHOPโ€™s Petite department a couple of years ago and it fits so perfectly on me. Iโ€™ve tried other suits from the Petite department this year and they just donโ€™t fit the same!!! And I donโ€™t know why! It makes me sad but at least I have this one that I can try to keep forever. To make this suit less formal and business-y, I added my checkered slip-on VANS and one of my favourite graphic t-shirts. I think this is the best way to make a suit more casual.

That’s it for these outfits! Like I said, these were from the week before my trip but I had to share them any way! The next post will be more recent because it’s the week after my trip! I can guarantee that you’ll notice a difference in my skin colour lol.

Until next time!
