It’s All In The Details

I adore layering my clothes, but what I love even more then that is having clothes that have been layered for me!

So many clothing brands have hopped on the layering bandwagon, creating shirts that have the an undergarment sewed in. It really helps on not feeling too bundled up, because that is just the worst feeling.

Forever 21 has really great tops that are pre-layered, it’s like two shirts in one!

I especially love the back detailing on this top, and it’s fleece on the inside, so it keeps me super warm!

Holiday Wish List

Sooo, as the holidays are coming up it is time to put together my holiday wish list (hint: mom and dad!)  Obviously, the majority of the items on my list is clothing…

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are coming up, so I would highly suggest you wake up early this weekend to get the best deals. Honestly this will be the last big sale till after Christmas, and I personally think Thanksgiving sales kick butt.

  1. Peace Collective

I am OBSESSED with all of their stuff, and not only is it Toronto focused they also give back to charity. For every piece of clothing they sell a child in Canada will be given a weeks worth of school meals.

5. Bandi Bracelets 

I have the biggest problem with my hair elastics, they are always indenting my skin and it’s way to irritating. The Bandi Bracelet lets you put your hair elastic on a fashionable bracelet- and no more marks!

8. Plow and Hearth

I love collecting warm blankets and snuggies, because you just can never have enough. The winter in Toronto is always freezing, so the more layers the better!

Bear Hug Body Pillow, this is not a joke. You can wrap yourself in there and sleep, and no one will bother you! This is the most perfect invention ever and I honestly could not want it more.

9. RoaringSoftly

I stumbled upon this adorable Etsy website thanks to Buzzfeed, and I am always looking for cute things to hang up in my room. It’s also a really meaningful gift to give someone, showing you know them well enough to remember their favourite things!

My Perfect LBD

So, I found the most spectacular dress online from Forever 21 (honestly, the BEST online store) and its for those fancy occasions, where you need to dress modest but not frumpy.

I find it pretty hard to find a black dress that I’m able to dress up or down and this dress is perfect! If you want to wear it to school, or to a fancy dinner it covers both occasions. Of course, a lot is dependent on the accessories- but when is it not?

As you can see, its ‘business in the front, party in the back’ (thanks Billy Ray). With a modest bow neck tie, and an open back you’re really able to do a ton with this dress.

Paired with booties and tights, and an awesome Harley Davidson, I’m ready for anything! Honestly, every girl needs a classy black dress it really is a wardrobe staple!

On me: Forever 21 dress, Vintage Chanel purse, Aldo booties

Let me know if you have a staple black dress and where it’s from in the comments below.

App Obsessed!

OMFG, yesterday Glamour launched the most amazing app that is able to help every fashionista with all of her cold weather/ rainy needs.

Every day when I leave the house I have the same problem, do I need a coat? How cold is it outside? What if it’s warm and then gets cold…

Most girls have this problem planning for the day, especially when out of the blue it will start raining. Nothing is worse then ruining your hair due to pesky rain.

The App is FREE, and it’s called Coat? It uses your local forecast to send you notifications of what is going to happen during the day.

It’s honestly a life saver for those who have the most trouble deciding if they need to carry an umbrella with them or not!

Cold Weather Accessories

It is gradually getting colder and wetter outside and with this unfortunate turn of events means that it is time for some cute cold weather accessories!

When you’re so crazy bundled up in your winter coat and boots its hard to show your own fun unique style. That’s why fun hats and scarves are such an awesome add on to any warm winter outfit!

1. Fluffy black ear muffs
2. Chunky purl knit beanie
3. Camp patch beanie
4.Black fuzzy infinity scarf
5. Purl knit infinity scarf
6. Yellow emoji knit beanie
7. Animal ears beanie
8. Frayed tartan plaid scarf

Urban OutfittersForever 21, and Claire’s are my go-to for inexpensive but warm looks to update my winter wear.

It is so important to be warm, or you will get a tough cold, so I highly suggest stocking up on cute accessories before they are all gone!

Neutrals are huge this season, ditching the neon colour from last for a more light and appealing tones.

Let me know what your favourite winter accessory is in the comments below.

Kisses!

Jumpman

A lot of my outfits are based on what shoes I am planning on wearing that day. If you haven’t noticed already, I am obsessed with shoes. No matter what kind, I don’t discriminate. Runners, booties, flats, heels! I love them all.

Air Jordans are a really big part of my life, I think they are so comfortable but so easily able to be dressed up or down. The only issue is that getting them dirty is a cause of great anxiety.

It is soon going to start snowing in Toronto, so I need to make use of the time that I have with shoes I won’t be able to wear in the winter.

Canadian Tuxedo

The best trend that has arrived back in our lives is the Canadian Tuxedo…better known as jean on jean!

We all remember Britney and Justin rocking it, and many still taking pointers from that one very memorable ensemble (Katy Perry)

Now, the tuxedo is an extremely fashionable statement that is also fun to play around with!

Kendall Jenner has even explained that:

I love a denim-on-denim look for traveling in NYC, because it’s comfy and cool

So my take on the denim on denim was a bit different, and I dressed it up a bit more then down. This is an outfit I would wear to dinner, rather than everyday running around.

Television Inspiration

My fashion sense is not exactly labeled in one category, sometimes I can be preppy and at other time’s I can be more in the goth genre. It honestly depends on my mood, the weather and what is going on for me that day.

I also really appreciate when something looks and feels good. It is important to dress for you body type.

So much of my clothing inspiration comes from what I see and what is around me. A large part of that is television! The shows I watch are across the board, but if I like a specific outfit from a character i’ll put my own twist on it!

Screen Shot 2015-10-27 at 5.17.47 PM

Haley Dunphy is a character who I adore, and has a fashion sense that is crazy amazing. She is currently working for a fashion designer (on the show) so it makes sense. Her look is so boho, always pairing a cute tank with long necklaces and statement earrings. She is also a huge fan of the over sized sweater which is so perfect for the fall weather.

Zoe Johnson is my favourite part of Blackish (and if you don’t watch it you seriously need to start.) She is hilariously witty, and has a fashion sense that matches that. She has a preppy style with an edge, and she adores mixing patters. She really inspires me to take a chance and mix and match colours and patterns because it works so well for her.

Olivia Pope the ultimate kick ass heroine. Not only does she inspire me to be an *independent woman* she has also taught me how to play with my neutrals. There is nothing wrong with wearing grey on grey, as she has proven. As well as putting on a statement jacket to make an outfit, and if all else fails always have your basic blue jeans!

Countess Elizabeth played by the insanely talented Lady Gaga, gives me so much delight to watch. Her clothing is as outgoing as her character, long beautiful dresses, bright neon colours matched with glitzy jewels. This would be my ideal going out outfits, if I lived in a place where I could get away with it! But honestly, I am so inspired by the big jewels. I love wearing my large necklaces and the Countess reminded me how much fun it is!

Laurel Castillo on How to Get Away With Murder is the perfect example of school girl mixed with badass. Other then the fact that she got away with murder, her wardrobe is so awesome! Pairing sweaters over blouses, she always puts her own spin on things whether it is a bright coloured bottom (normally a skirt), or a funky necklace. Just because you’re dressing for work, doesn’t mean you need to be boring!

Halloween 2.0

Since Halloween landed on a Saturday this year, I required two costumes. For my second I was a Mummy!

It honestly ended up being a pretty difficult costume for me. I did not plan how I was going to wrap myself, and that was a complete mistake. It took a few tries to end up getting it to look somewhat mummy-ish!

Thank god that being a mummy I really just needed to have intense makeup/look dirty. So smudging brown eyeshadow was a piece of cake!
