Currently Loving (&HAPPY NEW YEAR!)

Hey friends! I’m currently a victim of a terrible stomach bug, and have isolated myself in my room with nothing to do. I can’t sit around and do nothing, so I thought I’d be productive and share a blog post! I kind of lost track of my “December Inspiration” and therefore I’ve¬†decided¬†to¬†just¬†share inspiration photos/photos of things I’m “currently loving”. I’ll probably continue to do monthly inspiration posts for 2017 because I like to see how my taste¬†evolves throughout the year. I¬†am going to put a stop to “Wardrobe Additions” though. As much as I liked the idea, I feel like it has encouraged me to shop more. I’ll go shopping and think: “I love this! And I could add it to my Wardrobe Additions for the month, so that’s even better!”¬†So basically I was buying (or thinking of buying)¬†even more clothes just¬†for blog content.¬†Definitely not the kind of mentality I should have if I want to save my money,¬†pay off student loans, and travel. I have plenty of clothes that I can remix and re-style. I think that’s the great part about fashion and personal¬†style. It works for any budget, and it’s more about how you express yourself than if you have the latest trendy piece. So here are some photos that inspire my current¬†taste in fashion/style, and also some photos that I just loove right now:

There you have it! A quick post on what’s currently inspiring me style-wise. I know it’s not much, but it’s something!¬†A¬†new year’s resolution of mine if to be more consistent with blogging and to¬†really (like¬†actually) start my YouTube channel. I will keep you guys updated!

And until then,¬†I hope you all had happy holidays and I can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store!

Have a great weekend (hope your Friday is going better than mine!),

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!

Cuckoo for Culottes

Hello hello! I’m am so glad that¬†I can say that I have an outfit post for you guys this week! This is the fourth (and last *sadface*)¬†set of photos taken by the talented Joanna Dass. This outfit was created around these burnt orange culottes (perfect colour for Fall!)¬†that I actually love even more now that I’m looking at these photos again. They are a bit on the longer side but with heeled booties they don’t look¬†too shabby. I purchased these culottes from Aritzia. They’re not from Topshop! – That’s a shocker ha-ha. What I like about them most is that they are loose and air-y! They’re so comfy! We were a little worried about the lighting of these photos but I think the outfit actually¬†works well¬†with it! What do you think?¬†I’m getting real edgy vibes.. I look tough, right? (LOL)

Anywho! Here are the pictures, I hope you like them!

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

Summer Suede

Hi friends! I‚Äôm baaack with another outfit post! This outfit consists of two things I‚Äôve been currently loving, camel suede and that darn button up skirt! Are you sick of seeing it yet? I promise that I‚Äôm 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!!

Currently Craving “Spring Edition”

Currently Craving Spring Edition

Hey everyone! I’m back with a “Currently Craving” post! I can’t quite remember the last time I posted one of these, but perhaps that’s a good thing (teehee). Right now, all I’ve been thinking about is Spring and Summer and all the new looks to look forward to! I really want this leather vest that Cara Delevingne is wearing in one of the Topshop ads displayed at work. Currently, I’ve been also craving a pair of Quay Australia sunglasses. They’ve collaborated with Pretty Little Liars’ Shay Mitchell (which is how I first discovered them), and now everyone and their mom is wearing them! Honestly though, their designs are so nice and affordable! I just hope they become available in Canada so that I won’t have to pay the crazy $30 shipping fees. At first I didn’t like the idea of platform slip-on sandals, but they’re growing on me. I’ve seen some pictures with girls rocking them and I can’t believe I’m saying it, but they look great! They’ve completely swayed me in terms of this trend. When I first found out about the 70s making a comeback, my first thought was definitely whether or not flared jeans would make a comeback as well. Of course they are! Topshop has designed a Jamie Flare¬†and I’m eagerly waiting for them to show up at my location sometime soon! I’ve also been loving the 70s prints, I’m sure you’re sick of me talking about them by now. This shirt dress speaks for itself! Last but not least though, I’ve been DREAMING (AND I MEAN DREAMING) of the skirt in the bottom left of this photo. It is the skirt designed by Alexa Chung for AG Jeans. Ever since Alexa’s line came out, I’ve been drooling over this skirt¬†and how much of a perfect staple it would be in my wardrobe. Topshop (of course .. *embarrassed by how much I talk about Topshop*) made their own version and I WANT IT SO BAD. SO BAD. SO BAD. *end rant*
