OOTD: Luxe Details & Pajama Dressing

Hello friends,

The weather in Toronto has honestly been so unpredictable the past few weeks.  It would get super cold and rainy/snowy and then right after the temperature jumps back up to positive digits.  Anyway,  I finally decided to get a Mackage to keep me really warm this winter – so look out for that review soon!

This outfit is featuring items I got from the Zara Black Friday Sale.  I cannot believe this satin shirt I am wearing was only $13.95, and the material was substantial and not see-through at all! I’m so impressed.   I paired this with a pair of Blue velvet loafers also from the Black Friday Sale – although these babies are hardly as comfy.  Going to have to spend the next month breaking them in.

The Satin top and velvet loafers have a very soft and feminine vibe, kind of like wearing pajamas, so I broke it off in the middle by wearing my Banana Republic ripped jeans with zipper detailing to add a hard edge, if that makes any sense.

 

Hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you next time! 🙂  Leave me a comment and show me some love in the likes!

Summer Outfit Recap

Dear Friends,

I know Summer is OVER and I will never get over it…every year!  This past season was one of my favourites in terms of trying new trends and styles.  My personal style motto is definitely ‘Simple and interesting Silhouettes, always with Contrast and Minimal accessories’.  I put together a recap of my favourite outfits this past summer, I hope you enjoy this post!

This look is probably the girliest I will get! I loved that two wide hem items were layered here – the off the shoulder blouse and the flared mini skirt.  It worked well because the top was slightly cropped so the silhouette of the skirt was not lost and it still gave me the look of a waistline.  I wore these lace up pointy toe block heel sandals to further elongate my legs.  If anyone knows me in person they will know I almost exclusively buy pointy heels and have a tendency to get blocked heels as well (They are so much more walkable!)

dsc_2601My mom bought me this “top” from Korea that I wore as a dress – it totally freaked her out! So funny.  It is barely long enough to be a dress but whatever! I paired it with my Stan Smiths for a really simple, I don’t care kind of look. The key here is to add interesting accessories – like a watch and a statement handbag/ shoulder bag.

I am a bit late to the wide legged pants game but I finally gave culottes a try this spring and fell in love.  They are so flowy, easy to wear, and actually elongating to my legs, despite their wide width!  I love to pair culottes with a crop top or a wide hem blouse that is slightly cropped.

This is the last look, but certainly one of my favourites too because it is simple and modern.  I love how the white silk blouse matches with the white Stan Smiths and the skirt visually divides the look.  It feels very Oak + Fort, if you know what I mean.  Another thing I LOVE to wear are body con midi skirts with slits!  It is clean, flattering, and a bit sexy while still being sophisticated.  Finally, I added interest with a simple bracelet.

SNEAKER ENVY: MY FAVE KICKS FOR SUMMER AND FALL

SneakerEnvy2
I love wearing sneakers when the weather starts to cool in the late summer and into fall.  Blacks and Whites are generally what I love to wear, but I have recently been loving pops of colour in sneakers, that go amazing with a black & white outfit (because what other colours does one wear in fall? come on.)

These totally give a power ranger vibe.  The coral pink and purple combination is perfect too.

2. Jordan VI Retro Low GS

These shoes are super masculine and tough but I can imagine it looks great paired with shorts, black jeans or leggings with girly accessories.

3. Nike Women’s Roshe Run

I love the standard black Roshe’s, but these crocodile print / black give it a graphic yet monotone pop which I love.

4. Nike Air Max

I used to think these were super grandma and chunky, but now I love how people have been styling this pair.  I’ve wanted these for a long time, and they would look great with any simple outfit and true blue ripped jeans and gold accessories…..actually anything would work with these!

5. Nike Air Max Thea

Like the white air max, these are just so STAPLE! I would love either one but these look more athletic and slim, a great pair as well.

6. Nike Women’s Free 4.0 Flyknit

Last but not least, I wasn’t a fan of super colourful kicks, but these honestly look like they’re from the future.  I am in love with the mesh material and the weaving of pinks, purples and greens in this shoe.  The black and white makes this shoe versatile to any monochromatic outfit as well…. but what am I saying, I should be actually going to the gym in these.

I hope you enjoyed my picks of sneakers for summer and fall!

Let me know what you like and how you style sneakers!

OOTD: COOL GIRL DON’T CARE

Hey! Happy Monday to you!

To my dismay, the weather has been slightly cooler these days but still quite sunny and warm in the afternoon so what is a cold-fearing girl supposed to do??

Don’t you hate having to take a sweater with you to go out but not being able to wear it until it gets cooler at night so you’re basically carrying it around all day?

So I was fed up with that and wore a long sleeve + cut off shorts out…. the best of both worlds.  I think these classic blue Levi’s, once my mom’s jeans in the 80’s, look great as cut offs paired with a comfy white button up; this look is super casual yet the buttons on this shirt from Aritzia makes it look more classy.  My accessories are usually just a watch and my usual necklace that my boyfriend gave me + our ring but this is a canvas for anything.  This look honestly goes great with a makeup-free face too, in my opinion.
  For shoes, this look would go great with vans, birkenstocks, minimal leather sandals (like these Everlane ones i’ve been wanting FOREVER!), or a pair of sporty kicks.  I love simple outfits with interesting accessories. Hope you enjoyed this short OOTD post!

Here’s some blues to add to your monday blues…Just kidding.
