Currently Loving: Dresses Over Pants

Hi friends! Before I go on about what I am currently loving at the moment, I want to share something I’ve been thinking about lately. I’ve realized that not everyone can relate to all this Fashion/Style stuff that I blog about. I know occasionally I do a Book Review, but I think I want to write about some more relatable stuff as well. I’ve been thinking a lot about expanding the type of content that I want to share on my blog, and I think that I want to do travel aspirations, restaurants/places I’ve visited in Toronto, apartment dĂŠcor, etc. Maybe some days I’ll just blog about my thoughts or feelings? I want to be able to post more frequently, like almost on a daily basis. So yeah, I’m not going to constrict all my content around Fashion and Style. I mean, I still LOVE Fashion and Style to death but I know a lot of you probably don’t feel the same. I wanna connect with ALL of you! SO yeah, that’s what I’m going to do for the next little bit. We’ll see how it goes!

Now on to today’s post. Currently Loving: Dresses Over Pants. If you don’t already know, I live in Canada. Winters are terrible, and apparently don’t seem to want to end! Seriously though, we had days where it was sunny and like 14 degrees Fahrenheit and now it’s back to -7 degrees. Global warming sucks. Anyway, what I’m trying to get at is that I’ve been itching to wear my dresses but it’s been too danggg cold. The weather has been all over the place and therefore the only solution has been to wear dresses over pants. The bonus to all of this is that it’s actually trending right now! Look at all these pictures below!

I actually really like the look of skinny jeans with a dress on top. I’m definitely going to use this trend to my advantage until Spring actually arrives. What do you guys think of the look? Hot or not? I would love to hear your opinions in the comment section below :))

Happy Monday! Cheers to a new week/new beginning! Hope you’re starting your week off right Xx

OOTD: Layering Game

Hey everyone! I’m very, very, very happy that I finally have some of my own photos to share this time!! I have an outfit of the day, can you believe it?! I can’t even remember the last time I was able to get some decent outfit pictures. Actually.. it was probably the last time my friend Keni (Instagram: @kenifromtheblock) took pictures of me ha-ha. This outfit was based on layering, and mixing casual pieces with a piece that would be considered more formal. This printed drape-y vest was something I got on sale at Topshop last year and I always considered it as kind of a more dressier piece. To layer and make this vest look more casual, I added jeans, a distressed t-shirt, sneakers, and a leather jacket! I like how it turned out, and I’m glad I opted for green as a pop of colour. Normally, I would have been safe and gone with a neutral-coloured t-shirt BUT NOT THIS TIME ;D I know it’s not anything crazy. This is only a bit of an example of how I have been evolving in terms of style and taste. I can’t wait to show you guys more!

All Clothes – Topshop | Converse Sneakers – Softmoc | Earrings – American Eagle (Old)

I hope you guys enjoyed this post. You guys have no idea how much I like to share my outfits and I’m gonna try my best to do it more. I’m currently thinking about doing an “Outfits of The Week” post. What do you guys think of that idea? Let me know in the comment section below!!

Until next time!

February ’17 Inspiration

March is fast-approaching! To me, that means it’s time for a new “Inspiration” post! If you’re a new reader, every month I try to share pictures I’ve stumbled upon on the internet that have inspired my style throughout the month. For the month of February I’ve definitely been loving a mixture of things you guys already know I love. I’ve just been more adventurous lately. I know my style is a bit different than most people, but I think I’ve been comfortable taking more risks. This month I’ve been embracing colours and fun pieces. I love things that are out of the ordinary. Combining pieces that don’t necessarily match but still manage to work well together, that’s what I’ve been loving. It’s definitely not easy because I’m also worried about having pieces that I won’t be able to wear in years to come. You’ve got be wise/savvy. That’s the marvelous thing about Fashion! Self-expression, being creative, and the ability to still do it on a budget!

Specific pieces that I wore a lot this month were patterned blouses, Converse sneakers, basic t-shirts, striped anything, and straight jeans. I mixed patterns, I played with colours, and I wore some statement accessories (especially earrings) as well. I definitely want to continue to grow and become more comfortable expressing myself. I have to admit that I do still think of the kind of looks I’ll get on the bus or what people will think of me while at work. I want to overcome that! I just want to do me.

Also, I really just want to share all my looks. Just to have a place to document and see my growth in terms of my taste and style with what I wear. I need a steady photographer. If you guys know of anyone in the Toronto area who would like to take pictures once or twice a week (for free/for practice), send them my way!

Alright, I think I’ve rambled enough for today. I hope you guys are satisfied with how your Februarys turned out. If you did anything exciting within the last month, I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Until next time,

Wardrobe Additions: October

I am super excited to share with you guys a new type of blog post! I was trying to come up with more ideas for blog posts and when I thought of this one, I was shocked I had never thought of it before! Honestly though, am I dumb? I’m a fashion nut and shop-aholic, why would I NOT share the new pieces I add to my wardrobe? I mean, I add more than enough clothes to my wardrobe in a month that I might as well share them. So here are this month’s finds!

For the month of October I really focused on adding some new Fall pieces to my wardrobe. I think I may have purchased more than what I am about to show you, but I can’t quite remember. I don’t know if this means that I have a more serious problem than I thought, but I think this could be the majority of it all. I went shopping the other day and over the weekend, so I feel like I have enough to share anyway ha-ha. Mind you, all of it is thrifted!! *proud smile* I didn’t drop huge amounts of $$$ on this stuff. I’m a college graduate with debt up to her ears after all.

Just take a look at my new additions below! Also, if you wanna see some of them on me, check out my Instagram! (www.instagram.com/tinyintoronto)

Overall I think I bought 7 thrifted pieces. Six tops and one dress. I usually only buy tops because it’s such a difficult task trying to find me bottoms in a thrift store. Thank goodness the oversized look is in or I wouldn’t have found as much – seriously. I did get lucky and found some XS pieces and the dress I found FIT ME LIKE A GLOVE. It was a moment to remember.

Let me talk a bit about each piece. In the first photo, I have a camel long sleeve polo/button-up thing, a velour mock neck thing, and a lace-y/tie-up blouse thing. Wow, what great descriptions. The camel colored piece looks awesome underneath my denim pinafores/dresses and also paired with skirts! It’s an XS and I think it fits me quite nicely! The velour mock neck top is definitely what I was looking for/talking about in my velvet post. This is the piece that I’m going to use to experiment with textures and “velvet”. I can picture this brown velour top with black skinnies or my pleather skirt. It’s gonna be fun. Thirdly, there’s this tie-up/lace-y thing that gives me solid Free People vibes. I think it really emulates that boho-chic look. It’s also an XS and fits me quite nicely :)) I’ll probably get most of my wear out of it during the summer though.

The next four pieces are pretty interesting as well. There’s a Manny Pacquiao graphic tee that I love (*filipino pride*), a floral/Fall printed/velvet textured t-shirt, a vintage button-up with a sick print and sick sleeves to match (check Instagram!), and last but not least, the traditional oriental dress (THAT FITS ME LIKE A GLOVE). The Manny Pacquiao graphic tee I’ve already worn. I think it’s going to be that t-shirt that I gravitate towards the most on my days off. It’s just cool and chill, and I like it lol. The floral printed t-shirt covered in Fall colours is another one of those texture-testing pieces. Probably will look great paired with mom jeans or something. The vintage button-up with the sick print is one of my new favourite blouses. I think I can tuck it in into literally anything I want: trousers, skirts, jeans, dresses/pinafores – anything. The sleeves are an ultimate bonus! They’re kind of bell-shaped? Think “pirate”. Last but not least, THE DRESS. Check Instagram because I still can’t believe how well it fit me. I was walking towards the cashier and this dress caught my eye. It only took seconds after seeing it for me to snatch it up and run back to the change room. The lady working in the change room probably thought I was a freak (I was grinning and kind of bouncing with the dress in my hands lol). I LOVE IT. I had been subconsciously looking for a dress like this, and low and behold, I found one.

So there you have it! My first installment of my “Wardrobe Additions” series. I’m not going to lie, this is my second time writing this post and I am little unimpressed/annoyed. I blame my internet. Or maybe WordPress didn’t want to save it for me. IDK. However, I am still quite excited to share these posts within the upcoming months. I have no clue whether or not it’s going to remain a monthly thing though. What if I have such an amazing shopping trip that I don’t want to wait until the end of the month to share it? I might just go crazy and share it then and there! :O

I do have another project up my sleeve. Keep those peepers open for my first vlog in a very, very, verrrry long time. It’s SUPER amateur, but it was fun and I wanna share it! Stay tuned!

I hope you’re all having a good day!

Until next time,
