November Inspiration ’16

Hey friends! We’re fast approaching the end of the month, so I’m back with nothing other than another Inspiration post. I’m sorry I haven’t mixed things up in a while. I’ve wanted to focus on my blog and create some new content but with working in retail and it being the holiday season, I’ve been exhausted. This past Black Friday weekend really wore me down – and it wasn’t even that busy! I did work all three days of Black Friday weekend, and in between I took a road trip to my hometown, so I really just needed some rest. If you work in retail and understand how busy and tiring it is, comment below! How did your Black Friday go?

Anyways, I’ll stay on track here. So today’s post is my inspiration for the month of November. You guys know how these work. If you haven’t visited my blog before (welcome!!), I post a series of pictures that have inspired/influenced my style for every month. For November, I’ve been loving sweaters, teddy bear coats, mom jeans, more fishnets, lots of colour, slip dresses layered over t-shirts, and “nibbled” tees (I’ll explain in a bit). Oh, and of course the Olsen twins. I’m definitely still loving them. Just to update you all, I still haven’t found the perfect croc textured bag for me. If you’ve seen one that you think I might like, bless your soul. Please share it in the comment section below!!! xx

To get into more detail, I’ve just been loving being cozy and looking stylish while I’m at it. I bought this teddy bear-esque coat from THE GAP and I’m absolutely in love with it (check it out on Instagram!). I could fall asleep on the bus wearing it. It’s THAT cozy. I’ve also been loving bright colours, or just anything that’s not black or grey. Winter is a “blah” time for most people. I think black is definitely a go to colour for this season, but I like colour! Colour makes me happy. For example, on days that need brightening, I’ve been gravitating towards my hot pink trousers. “Nibbled” tees are these lightly distressed t-shirts that we sell at Topshop. I’ve bought one in almost every colour. They go with everything and I love the fit & shape of them! At one point I thought they were called “moth-bitten” tees. You can probably Google them with either name! I might actually do a blog post on them and how I’ve been styling them.

As always, to better understand what I’ve been rambling about. Take a look at the inspiration photos below!

There you have it! November’s Inspiration. I can’t believe it’s almost December! Where has the year gone? AHH. Christmas is in like 3 weeks and I’ve bought one Christmas present. I hope you’re all ahead of the game and not like me!

Until next time,

Style Stalking: The Olsen Twins

Hi guys! I don’t know what happened, but I saw this photo of one of the Olsen twins on Tumblr.. and it just triggered this huge obsession. I have always thought the Olsen twins were fashion icons, but this photo (it wasn’t even THAT great of an outfit) just inspired me. I can’t explain it. I was just really digging the look, so then I googled and looked at more Olsen looks. I think I spent a good hour just stalking their style and trying to find an affordable croc textured tote bag lol. I can’t believe I never gave them more of my attention. I can’t believe I forgot about them!! I love their style. I love how sophisticated their looks are. They’re SO CHIC. Mary-Kate and Ashley are two very classy ladies, and I adore them. Their outfits look so effortless. I also can’t believe how easy their looks are to recreate. A few key things when it comes to the Olsen twins’ style: black, croc textured bags, loafers, anything oversized, and more black. They like scarves and clothing pieces that drape/have no shape. I know I said that I was trying to steer away from black, but they’ve really sold me on simple black pieces (like skinny jeans, cigarette trousers, long overcoats, and sweaters). They have the best monochromatic/neutral/tonal looks. I think most of their wardrobe is either white, black, or grey. These twins also know how to play with texture – they’re fashion pros! While stalking, I also browsed their website “Elizabeth and James”, and I would kill to have a piece of their collection. Preferably one of their croc leather bags because they certainly have a strong purse/bag game – and this is coming from the ultimate bag lady herself. Below are photos that I saved while I went crazy googling the Olsen twins.

Do you get what I’m saying about the croc leather bags?!! I hope I don’t sound like a lunatic while I rant about the Olsen twins lol. Hopefully, there’s a few of you who agree with me? If not, at least this gave you a good laugh.

Have a happy Friday, everyone!

Neutral Something.

I want to begin by saying: I had no idea what to call this post. I get boho and Indiana Jones vibes from this look, but seriously, what kind of title can come of that lol? If you know me well, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of neutrals. I tend to gravitate towards black. A: It looks good with everything. B: It’s my favourite colour.. because it looks good with everything. I honestly need to gravitate towards more color. I don’t really own anything bold. Perhaps that’s something I can try to work on. The focal point for this outfit was the brim hat. It’s neutral, so ideally any color would go with it.. but for some reason, I chose more neutral colors haha. It works, but I would have liked to pair it with a color that isn’t black, gray, white or cream, etc. (Basically a color I don’t own.) What do you think is a safe color (that’s NOT neutral) to try for those who are afraid of going bold? Blue? Maybe green? Help me.

January Inspiration

This month’s been all about white sneakers, furry jackets, and tailored/men’s pants for me. I’ve also just recently purchased a pair of ripped mom jeans, so I’ve been trying to find some inspiration on how to wear them. Like always, I do not take credit for any of these photos. I simply reblogged them from Tumblr and reposted them here! Hope you all enjoy!

December Inspiration

I was inspired this month by the oversized look (as per usual), and embellishments/glitzy things for the holidays. I still have a huge obsession with all things chunky and knitted. I’ve also been all about that dark lip, interesting footwear, and I really REALLY want a full ribbed/knit/sweater outfit, top and pants, the whole she-bang (like the picture below). I think I saw Selena Gomez wearing one from Zara???? Anywaaays. Like always, these are pictures I took from Tumblr. I take no credit for any of them, they’re just pictures that I’ve been loving/going to for inspiration!

Enjoy!
