OOTD: Monochrome Chic

5

Hey everyone!

Heres the first of my OOTD series! This means I get to post far more frequently and give you guys more detailed insight on where I shop and how I put together my outfits… AND the inspiration behind each one.

Today I was feeling kind of cold and down so naturally I overlooked any colour and went monochrome. The sad news was that a button from my black skinnies fell  off so I needed to get it fixed. So my only other semi neautral option was jeans. They actually accent the outfit quite well so it turned out way better than I expected.

Daydream: New York Designer OOTD’s

Hey guys!

So I was just looking through photos I took at the Metropolitan Museum in New York last year and I found one I took of a beautiful porcelain inspired dress in the “China: Through the Looking Glass”  Exhibit.

I got super inspired again, and I was just sitting there daydreaming about what I would wear from that collection. Of course it was limited edition so even if I scraped up the money to buy one of the designer dresses, I wouldn’t be able to. Then I found the website Farfetch.com. They had some incredible designers and brands all in one place.I started scouring for dream outfits I would wear that represented my take on the exhibit.

I realize that this years exhibit was “Manus X Machina” and it would have made sense more for me to do a trend report on that, but I just wasn’t feeling as inspired as I was for the Porcelain Designs. 

Below is just some outfits I thought would look amazing together. If only I could have ’em all! I thought through every detail including how to prevent an overflowing luggage: repeating key pieces! READ MORE! (more…)

2016 Trending Prints for Home and Fashion

We’re two months into 2016, which means the fashion industry has already launched their spring and summer lines. Though many runway-ready looks aren’t something you’d typically wear to work or out for drinks, you can still easily incorporate trending prints and colors into both your wardrobe and your home decor. check below for a cool website to help you achieve your pattern dreams!

Bright and Bold

The best part about spring fashion is the selection of bold colors you can use to spruce up any outfit. Shake off the winter blues and debut your spring lineup with wide stripe prints that steal the show.

We love incorporating stripes into an outfit by pairing a multicolored shirt with a skirt in a complementary color or a dark pair of skinny jeans. Go for wide stripes and choose bright, contrasting colors to turn heads in the best possible way.

#OOTD: Leather and Tutus?!!

IMG_0290

Missing summer already. The warmth of the burning sun, the fruity chilly drinks, and most of all, the easy flowy summer clothes. If you have any events or special days coming up, I have a great idea for you! You know that bridesmaid or flower girl tutus you have from a fancy wedding ages ago? Its back in style, and bigger than ever. With a look over at Milan Fashion Week, girly versus edgy is back in town. We need to catch this trend before it dies out, because it is GOOD. Real good.

I paired a leather jacket with a black crop top, pink tutu, converse, and a nice pair of sunglasses. Its easy and customizable. You can choose either silver, gold, or rose gold (Side note: Why is the Iphone 6s colour so beautiful. Why.) I went with the Gold. Without further ado, I bring you, my favourite OOTD for the summer/fall transition.

The Perfect Spring Outfit ft. a Sweatshirt

There’s no place I’d rather be, than living in a sunshine filled world, where rompers and flowy kimonos are a galore. But alas, I live in a crazy world of wind and rain. But I found the perfect compromise. Using the weather as my colour pallet, I made neutrals look like warm weather style, but cold weather friendly. Partnering with my trusty new sweatshirt (Psstt ON SALE!) which you can get HERE

This sweatshirt is absolutely amazing and it goes with everything. From your favourite pair of skinny jeans, your after work pajama , or as a stylish cover up for a summer dress.

So without further ado…. The photo shoot. Enjoy…

I was feeling good that day so a dress it was. But the weather was crazy. First it rained. Then it was dark and cloudy. Then the sun came out just as I was starting my movie marathon. So… I decided to put on my favourite dress and go dancing in the middle of the road and on a railroad track.

Fall/Winter Trends & Tips for Guys

Uh-oh. A girl writing for guy fashion, red flag right? Don’t worry, I did research. Sort of.

Some guys were just born to be strutting a catwalk and some have less experience to this element. Don’t worry you will all be prepared and aware for your next shopping trip by the end of this post!

Tip #1: Your Attitude

Set your attitude right when shopping. Often times I hear boys groaning about getting dragged with their moms/girlfriends/cousins to shop for hours and hours and hours… But if you think about it, while they shop you can just sit and text or eat food for hours. Make a deal with them, such as going to 10 stores would gain you a Starbucks and a burger. Then if the time is still killing you, go check out the stores with them! Maybe you can find a gift for your special someone. The better you sow, the better you reap. Setting off with a good attitude will actually give you a better experience and a abundance more  style.  (more…)
