Current Obsession 3

I’m back again, with another round of current obsessions. As you know, winter can get very, very cold here in Canada; which means SWEATERS ON SWEATERS ON SWEATERS. Currently, I am obsessing over turtleneck and cowl-neck sweaters. The bigger the better; in other words, oversized. These sweaters are so versatile, you can wear them with leggings for a casual look. Or, you can add some fancy earrings and a necklace to dress it up.

The one great thing about these sweaters is that they double as a scarf, so you can keep extra warm this winter. Let me know in the comments what your favourite sweater style is for the winter!

Oh! And Happy Black Friday Shopping!!!!!! 3788c51d8dfc9826a336c63cda7c6b36

Layered Love

I said a couple posts ago that I wanted to start taking pics of my everyday outfits to post on my blog and here I am! An everyday outfit post on my blog. The weather was a lot warmer today (woop!) so I got to wear a lighter jacket and some sneakers. Sadly, the cold weather will be back with vengeance.

Yesterday at the mall, I was inspired by a few outfits I saw and wanted to create the styles I saw, but in my own way. Layers, layers are so popular for the colder seasons and it’s amazing what textures and colours can look good mixed and matched.

One more thing; one of my many fashion mottos: “You can never wear too much (faux) leather”.

Hello again! You better be happy to see me again, if not, well, that’s too bad. I am a day behind on my outfit posts, so this outfit is from yesterday. I had a class presentation which means I had to dress relatively business casual. Usually, a button-down shirt and some jewelry works. Once again, I tucked in my shirt because, as you know, I LOVE doing that. For this outfit, tucking my shirt in definitely made my look more polished and put together.

Let me know what your go-to piece is for business casual days in the comments!

Jacket: Express

Button Down: Suzy Shier

Necklace: Express

Denim: Express

Belt: Express

Boots: Call it Spring

Sunglasses: Aldo

Gloves: Express

Knits and Leggings

So, I have decided that I want to start taking pictures of my everyday outfits. No longer do I want to just style a really cool outfit just for a blog post. I want to be able to show you guys what I am wearing everyday; whether it be to school, work, downtown or out at night. Of course, I don’t have a professional photographer (yet) who follows me around just to snap the best pics of my outfit so the pictures will not be the best quality.

Here is a few pics of my outfit from yesterday for class, it was super cold and very snowy outside so I did have to resort to wearing the Uggs. I am wearing them with confidence and that is what it’s all about! If you know me, I love tucking in my shirts. I always finds it adds a little edge to your look and it is my signature style. I tucked in my sweater on the side to show the zipper detailing on my leggings. Hope you enjoy!

Make sure to stay tuned to my blog every week for a gift guide under $30 for every person in your life!

CURRENT FAVOURITES

I have been thinking of showing you guys what I am obsessed with lately and was trying to think of the best way to do it. A video came to mind. Usually, the whole process of filming and editing really bores me, as I would just rather take photos and write about it. But, I apparently caught the ‘filming flu’. Which is a sickness I just made up now to compensate for my desire to film a video.

Anyway, this video is all my current favourites. Mostly beauty and accessories, which are still very important to every fashion lover. Hopefully you guys enjoy! Let me know what you think in the comments and any other video ideas you think I should do.

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel, so be sure to give it a thumbs up!! THANKS!
