Fabric Soldier

Another outfit post is here to share! This is the outfit that I wore and these photos were taken before we left to eat pho, get bubble tea, and see the Canada Day fireworks. The fireworks that were CANCELLED that is. It was SO ANNOYING to have them cancelled due to high winds, but I get it (clearly not over it though lol).

I knew it would get cooler at night so I used it as an excuse to wear this camo shacket, that I just added to my collection, for the first time. To be honest with you, I know this piece is called a “shacket” but I’m not 100% familiar with where it gets its name. I just know that it looks like a utility jacket, and is part of that army/utility dressing trend right now.. but that’s about it. Is it shaggy and jacket combined? Who knows.

I wanted to feature this green camo shacket so I paired it with an entire grey ensemble underneath and broke it up with my favourite white Nike AF1s. This is definitely a more relaxed, “comfort over style” kind of look but I think the jacket really saves my butt style-wise. I’m actually really surprised I didn’t already own a utility jacket. When I was trying it on in Topshop (surprise!), a friend was like, “it looks like you should already own it”. And that was that lol.

Now take a good look at these outfit photos! (Thank you, Jay!)

February ’16 Inspiration

Hello! It’s that time again! Time for me to share the photos that inspired me this month. It’s definitely felt a lot more like Winter this month (unfortunately). However, this cold month had me embracing the art of layering and combining pieces I never thought I’d wear together. Who would have thought layering jackets would be so chic? (i.e. lady with a denim jacket underneath her overcoat) I wore my leather jacket underneath my coat most of the time! Being warm has definitely been key. I gravitated most towards anything chunky or fuzzy/furry (not real fur, of course). Scarves were also a big thing for me. Whether it was a scarf, a neckerchief or a turtleneck, I made sure my neck was warm.

Here’s a shocker: I’ve been mixing prints! I’ve even been wearing more colour! I know these photos aren’t the best examples. Hopefully soon I can show you an example myself… but I’ve honestly been loving it. I feel adventurous. I feel more stylish than I ever have before. Let me be one to say that a little print in your outfit isn’t going to hurt anybody! Embrace it, my friends!

I feel like I just preached to you guys about prints and colour lol. If you guys want to stick to black and your jeans and tees, fine by me. However, if you wanna branch out from being a little basic (and I encourage you to do so), try some print or wear pink! Or red! Or BOTH! You don’t even have to spend any money! Raid someone else’s closet. Maybe your mom’s? You can go to the thrift store and pay like $5 on a sick printed or coloured piece that no one else will have! If you’re like me, you’ll be surprised at how much you love it. *ends rant*

As always, I appreciate all of you who take the time to read my blog. It really means a lot to me. I hope this post was enjoyable and until next time, take care and be safe!

Back to Black

Hey friends! I’d like to begin by saying that these are probably some of my favourite shots taken by Joanna Dass (joannadass.com). You can never go wrong with an all black attire. I always go back to black. I love this dress, not because its light and versatile, but because it has pockets!! I love pockets. The boots that I’m wearing are a new obsession. Months ago I probably wouldn’t have even given these boots a second look because I can’t do heels. However, as I’m getting to an age where heels are becoming more appealing, I decided that these boots would be a great “step”. They’re called “sock boots” and very in season. I would love a brown pair, maybe a suede pair, I don’t know ha-ha. Maybe one pair is enough..  I’ve finally worked them in so I’ve been wearing them quite a lot! With denim, with skirts, and of course, with dresses. Everything I’m wearing is from Topshop (go figure). Now take a look at these pictures!!!!!!!AB_6 AB_7  AB_9 ABS_-37     ABS_-42  ABS_-44    ABS_-48

April Favourites 2015

As you all know, it is May. Where the heck did April go?! I’m not to sure what the feedback was for my last post like this, but I enjoyed my “March Favourites” so much that I decided to do a similar post for April! Hope you guys don’t mind ha-ha.

A lot of my favourites for this month won’t come as a surprise to you. I’m pretty sure I’ve talked your guys’ ears off about most of them. For one, my Mackage bag. Still loving her, still treasuring her, still can’t believe she’s mine. I still tuck her into her dust bag at night. I’m also still loving my oversized denim jacket, and of course I’m still loving my sunglasses. I’m going to be honest you guys, I really think I am clinically obsessed with sunglasses. The amount of pairs that I have accumulated in the last month is embarrassing. Every time I go shopping, I gravitate towards the sunglasses and try a few on. I’m getting better at telling myself no though. Two favourites that I have not mentioned are Wentworth and Girl on the Train. Wentworth is a TV show that I found on Netflix. IT IS AWESOME. My honest opinion is that it is BETTER than Orange is the New Black. It’s definitely a little more intense. It’s Australian (cool accents are a bonus). There really isn’t much else that I can say besides that you should really watch it! If you’re into shows like Orange is the New Black but want something a little more “bloody” (for the lack of a better word), watch this show. Girl on the Train is the last but not the least of my favourites. It is one of the best books I’ve read in the last while. It was really hard to put down once I got into it. I don’t have a real picture of it because I borrowed the book from one of my managers at Topshop. I am SO GLAD that I did. I was tempted to keep it, but that would have been bad. It is such a good read in the sense that it kept me on my toes. It was a little bit of a mystery and kind of a thriller. It was just awesome. Please read it. I beg you all.

(Lol.) So that concludes April’s favourites! I really hope you guys enjoyed finding out what I loved during the past month. I’ll more than likely share my favourites for the month of May (unless you guys beg me to stop).

Hope you’re all having a good day! XX

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).

(Faux) Fur Baby

There aren’t even words to describe how excited and happy I was to find this faux fur jacket. I’ve looked and looked for years for a faux fur jacket that was a reasonable price, and up until now I had zero luck. I was Christmas shopping downtown with a friend one day and stopped at Urban Outfitters. Of course, when your goal is shop for presents for OTHER people, you end up finding the perfect things for yourself. This jacket was regularly $200 and was marked down to $69. Sale items were also on sale for 50% off the lowest ticket price, so at this point I’m like freaking out that it’s only $35. I tried it on, fell in love, got to the cash, and by some miracle it came to $25!! Seriously, it was meant to be. I love it, but then again, I say that about a lot of other things in my closet. I REALLY REALLY LOVE IT. Here’s myself wearing my new (faux) fur baby.

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!!
