Denim 4ever

Hello everybody! I’m back with another outfit post! Shocked? Here is another set of photos shot by Joanna Dass (joannadass.com). I love the denim dress worn in these photos. I’m still kinda playing around with it. I’m not sure how I like to style it yet but here’s one way. A basic t-shirt and my clogs. I think it gives the outfit a relaxed look. Very casual. I find this dress easy to throw on and even though it’s not a very flattering shape, it somehow works. (*eureka moment* THIS WOULD LOOK GREAT WITH A TURTLENECK!!) This denim dress is from Topshop (where else?). I had my eyes on it for a while but then someone bought it in my size. Then it was returned, so I took that as fate. It obviously meant that we belong together, right?

Take a look at these photos, and if haven’t checked out Joanna’s website.. WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

July Inspiration 2015

Hello everybody! July is coming to a close and that means I have to share my inspiration for the month! Now I’m going to keep this short because there’s a lot of pictures to share this month, but I promise you there’s an outfit post on it’s way! To sum up the inspiration for this month, I’m just going to say that I’ve been loving a lot. I think that with Fall rapidly approaching, as well as the time to go back to school, I’ve been more and more interested in what’s to be expected next season. As much as it hurts me to say that summer is almost ending, even though to me it feels like it’s finally beginning (I’m getting a week off real soon!!), Fall is my favourite season for fashion. I can interpret a slow transition into Fall trends in all of these pictures. I’M VERY EXCITED. I’m actually planning on doing a post on the trends to expect this Fall 2015, so keep your eyes peeled for that ;D

Anywho! Enjoy these pictures, I hope they inspire you as much as they inspire me!

Side note: How awesome is it that Gigi Hadid is the new face for Topshop for Autumn/Winter 2015?! I didn’t think I could love working for Topshop as much as I do now.

Happy Wednesday!!

Dungaree Daze

I have an OUTFIT POST! Man, who would have thought I’d get around to making one of these anytime soon eh? Well I’m proud to say that I found time to get some pictures taken. I knew that if I was going to make another outfit post, my next one had to be of me in my dungarees. I could live in dungarees for the rest of my life. They’re just so comfortable and in my opinion, stylish. I feel super cool when I wear them – and again, that’s just my personal opinion! I understand if some people think they’re ridiculous or dumb, or maybe a little juvenile. I can’t lie and say that I don’t love them though. Going to the bathroom is rather annoying.. I’m always afraid a strap is going to dip into the toilet… but it’s all worth it! The dungarees/overalls that I’m wearing in these pictures are from Topshop. Like, where else would I get them haha? I adore the classic denim wash. A true blue! I feel like I’ll be able to wear these for a long time. I mean, not only is the wash timeless but it’s not like I’m going to grow anytime soon (unfortunately).. right?

June Inspiration 2015/ I miss my blog.

HOLY SMOKES. Where has the time gone? It’s July everybody, and I didn’t even get a chance to share my inspiration for June! You have no idea how upset I get when I think about the time I am wasting when I could be focusing more on blogging. Honestly though, who needs work? Who needs an internship? Who needs a bachelor’s degree when you’ve got a blog to commit to?! I really and truly miss blogging. I miss taking pictures and I miss sharing my thoughts with you guys. I know it’s been less than a month, but I feel like I haven’t posted in three. Before I get all emotional, here is what I was inspired by (picture-wise) during the month of June. There isn’t exactly a theme or group of things that I gravitated the most towards. It’s just a mash-up of pictures I love.

Enjoy.

Summer Suede

Hi friends! I’m baaack with another outfit post! This outfit consists of two things I’ve been currently loving, camel suede and that darn button up skirt! Are you sick of seeing it yet? I promise that I’m keeping it at two ha-ha! This one in particular is white, and also from Topshop. I picked white because I don’t have any bottoms in my closet that are white. I was considering getting pants but this skirt just seemed like the perfect choice. My top is from Zara and it’s real suede leather. It’s got that weird leather smell but I love the look and the texture that it brings to my outfit. What do you think? Take a look!!

Monthly Favourites: May 2015

Hey everyone! It’s that time again! June is officially here and that means that I can share what I loved during the month of May. Firstly, I wanna say that June is the best month of all months. Not only does it mark the official beginning of summer, BUT IT’S MY BIRTHDAY MONTH (WOOT WOOT)!! “I don’t know about you.. but I’m turning twenty-twooo..” Actually though. I’m turning TWENTY-TWO. Am I old now? I really don’t know how I feel about it, so I’m just going to leave it at that haha.

On to my favourites!! There weren’t very many fashion items that I loved during the month of May. I got many new pieces in preparation for summer, so there will definitely be tons of fashion favourites in the months to come. Some fashion items that I DID love during the month of May are my denim button-up skirt (which you all must know about by now haha.. I’ve talked about it enough :p), my children’s Adidas sneakers, and my new $4 canvas tote. The denim button-up skirt is self-explanatory. It’s amazing. I love it. Definitely going to wear the crap out of it. I don’t think I’ve quite introduced my Adidas babies though. They’re a children’s size 2. They have velcro. Need I say more baha? I thought it was a different take on the Adidas sneakers that are trending at the moment. They also fit me a heck of a lot better because they’re made for my baby feet. I know that velcro may seem ugly to some people, but I feel like we might see more velcro in the future? So far, it’s just me and Jared Leto. I love them. The last fashion favourite is the canvas tote that I purchased from Kensington market. It may be a little hipster, but I find it very handy when carrying lunches or an extra pair of shoes to work. There is no doubt in my mind that I used this bag for 20 out of the 31 days in May.

My other three favourites are a movie, a TV show, and a book. Avengers: Age of Ultron came out last month. I know it’s not typical for a girly girl like me to enjoy movies like Avengers, but without hesitation I can say that this movie is my favourite. I love Marvel movies. I also love all the Transformer movies. Those who know me well would say I’m sort of a geek. Speaking of geeks, a TV show that I discovered on Netflix during the month of May was Freaks and Geeks. Unfortunately there was only the one season, so I finished it pretty quick.. but I loved it nonetheless! I recognized so many faces!! They were all so young and talented. James Franco, Jason Segal, Seth Rogan, Shia LaBeouf, Lizzy Caplan (from Mean Girls), Leslie Mann (The Other Women and This is 40), and Linda Cardellini (she was in Avengers: Age of Ultron!!). These are only a FEW of the familiar faces!! Honestly, you just have to watch it. It’s so funny and original. It’s the best! You’ll enjoy it, I GUARANTEE IT. My final favourite for the month of May is a book. I read a lot of good books during the month of May. Three to be exact. I am so happy I got to read more than one. I’ve been dying to read for months and now I have some time to fully dedicate to reading. A book that stood out to me was Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. If you aren’t familiar with her, she is also the author of Gone Girl (the movie is on Netflix now!) which is another book I really enjoyed. It was a very thrilling novel. That’s all I can really say without giving it away! If you liked Gone Girl, you’ll love this one.

That concludes my May Favourites! I hope you enjoyed them! PLEASE consider watching Freaks and Geeks, Avengers: Age of Ultron, or even start reading Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn! They were all so so good!

Hope you’re having a happy Friday!

Until next time!

Culotte Life

Hey everyone! It’s me again! I’m back with another outfit post. This beautiful garment was found by accident. I found it on the “Last Chance” rack at work. The “Last Chance” rack is basically a rack full of garments that have sold quickly (and we only have 2 or 3 left) or garments that have been returned from another location that we don’t carry. We never carried this piece! Someone had bought this adorable (petite!) culotte jumpsuit from another location AND RETURNED IT! Can you believe that? Of course it was my size, so I tried it on and it was magical. The only thing missing were pockets *sadface* I definitely plan on wearing this a lot during the summer. It’s one of those easy pieces where you put it on, find a cute bag, find cute shoes, and ta-da! You’re golden. I can also see myself layering with it in the autumn. Perhaps a turtleneck underneath? Or a white button up shirt over top? And some cute booties?

This piece is definitely a favourite. Take a look at it!! (O! The cut-outs are bomb too.)
