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.)

city girl

Recently, since school has just finished, I’ve had a lot of free time. When I have free time, I like to go downtown, see everything that I can see, and shop. I’ve done this twice in the past week and I can’t tell you how much I enjoy it! I hope I never get tired of living in Toronto. Here are pictures of an outfit that I wore during one of those days. It probably comes as no shock but the majority of my outfit is from Topshop, literally everything but my shoes, sunglasses and bag (smh).

I Dream of Spring

The snow is finally melting! I don’t want to jinx anything but Spring is almost here! Although I’m still terrified to go out in my white sneakers (too much mud!), the weather outside is definitely agreeing with my wardrobe. No more ridiculous layers, heavy jackets and winter boots. I. LOVE. IT. Earlier this month I was describing my perfect trench, days later I found this gem in the PETITE section of Topshop. This Spring she’ll be my second skin. We were made for each other! Here’s the first of many outfits featuring my new love:

Neckerchief me, please.

This season I’ve noticed a lot of women accessorizing by tying smaller sized scarves (kerchiefs) around their necks. By women, I mostly mean my favourite blogger: Danielle Bernstein (LOVE! HER!). If you’re familiar with bloggers you’ll know her as ‘weworewhat’. She inspires me. I just recently added her on snapchat haha. Anyway! I personally love the look of the neckerchief. I had been looking for one for a while but I could not justify the price. Even at H&M they were like $15 – yuck!  Although I really love the look, I can’t see myself wearing a neckerchief on a day-to-day basis or getting my $15 worth. That’s why I got super excited when I found one at a thrift store a week ago.  It was only $3 and I really enjoy the pattern. It was made in Italy, so that’s pretty funky! This is how I styled it for work. For a more casual/everyday outfit I think I would add the neckerchief to a plain tee and jeans. How do you feel about the “neckerchief”?

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.

MOM VIBES

As previously mentioned (in my last post), I recently purchased “mom jeans”. I have always liked the look on other people, in pictures and in person, but I was never 100% sure they were fit for me. I’m pretty petite/tiny (as we all know lol), so I was afraid they would swallow me! However, we received a bunch of mom jeans at work last week so I decided to amuse myself and try them on. It was worth a shot. They ended up fitting me but the way they fit is so different from what I’m used to! I was so torn! They were baggy and loose. I’m a girl who wears skinny jeans like a second skin!! As a fashion lover/addict, I am open to trying new styles and therefore in the end I went with my gut and bought them. I get a discount so I didn’t burn a huge hole in my pocket. It wasn’t easy though. I was asking my co-workers, half of them loved them and half of them didn’t. Mom jeans are definitely a love or hate kind of piece but I have nothing like them in my closet. I liked them and if I want to wear them, I’m going to make them work. So what is your take on “mom jeans”? Do you love them or do you hate them? Do you think they may be just a fad, or will we be seeing mom jeans as the new skinny jeans? *gasp*

Here’s how I styled them:

Oversized

I bought this oversized coat months ago and I have been wearing it everyday since! It never occurred to me that I should probably share it in a blog post because it immediately became a part of my everyday wardrobe. It is honestly the best coat I have ever owned and I love it very much! I especially love the lilac colour because not only can I wear in the winter, but I have a feeling it will be acceptable to wear in the early spring as well ;D

Hope you all like it! I also hope you’re all having a great holiday season, and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Style Stealing: Selena Gomez

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Why hello there! Does it feel as long to you as it does to me? So sorry for the huge gap between posts, but I’ve just recently got my life back. For the past week or so I’ve been studying and preparing for midterms. Blegh!!

On to better and more fashionable things ;D Today I am mixing it up with a look that I have stolen from my ultimate girl crush. Can you guess? It’s the beautiful Selena Gomez. I don’t know what it is guys… but I’m obsessed with her. I really can’t explain it. I love her style and all the other lovely things about her! This look of hers specifically caught my eye, so I decided to recreate it and give it a hint of myself. Hope you like it!

Working Girl

I have just recently been hired as a sales advisor at a nearby Topshop. Yesterday was actually my first real shift on the job (which went really well!). One of the other new hires just happens to be a blogger and a fellow student in my program, so naturally we had to take some pictures of each other and create blog posts!! That’s what you’re supposed to do, right? After work, we literally just went outside and snapped a few pictures of our outfits. ‘Our-first-day-working-at-Topshop’ outfits.

For my outfit, I wore black American Eagle “jeggings”, a top from F21, a Brandy Melville necklace, my favorite Zara booties, and my new oversized/i-look-like-a-wannabe-hobo cardigan from Urban Outfitters (I luuuvvv it!).
