outfits 19+20 | 15 pieces.. 20 ways

We made it to the end! So many outfits, so little pieces of clothing. It’s amazing how far you can stretch your wardrobe and create so many different outfits. I hope you have enjoyed these outfits and found new ways to wear your clothes!

THE 15 PIECES ARE: jacket, cardigan, tank, lace-up shirt, flannel, turtleneck, tee, skirt, joggers, leather leggings, black jeans, baggy/ripped jeans, adidas, boots, purse. The necklace, sunnies and scarf are accessories you can add to any outfit.

Outfit 19 felt chic but relaxed, put together but comfy. I had to wear my new wool hat again, so lets pretend that the grey beanie is being swapped out for this. Wearing joggers usually only gives off one type of vibe: casual. I figured by adding a silver, statement necklace and my wool hat, it would give off a different vibe. I think it worked because I love the way it all came together.

 Outfit 20 (THE LAST OUTFIT… reference to Ice Age[the last melon]) was super comfy and you can definitely add your favourite accessories to it. I decided to tuck in the tee or else every piece of clothing would have been baggy and I would have looked like a towel. Not joking. Adding the beanie really pulled the look together to be be really comfy and casual.

Outfits 15+16 | 15 pieces.. 20 ways

Distressed denim is a great piece to style a number of ways, I’d say you can even wear them out for a nice dinner with the girls. Add some heels and a statement necklace, good to go! These outfits are more casual; sneakers and a flannel.

Outfit 15 includes tucking in the flannel to give some shape to the outfit, since the jeans are pretty baggy. Still a casual outfit, where you can add any accessories to style it your own way.

Outfit 16 is the same basic concept of tucking in the flannel to give shape to the outfit; since the jeans and now cardigan, are quite oversized. I went full on prep and buttoned up my flannel all way and added a statement necklace; it adds a bit more detail to the outfit and dresses it up a bit more. Although, this outfit can’t be too dressy because of the Adidas.

Outfits 13+14 | 15 pieces.. 20 ways

As I’m creating different ways to wear these 15 pieces, I find that I gravitate to mixing the same tops together.  I’m trying to explore new options and find new ways to wear each piece. Back to basics in black jeans and ankle boots; two important pieces to style a number of ways.

Outfit 13 includes some colour!! This burnt orange looks great with all black (duh, black matches everything). Still a casual look, with black jeans, boots and a leather jacket.

Outfit 14 had to include the scarf again because it kept my hands and body warm while shooting. Blanket scarfs are a MUST HAVE for the fall/winter season. Wearing black jeans, tee and leather jacket for this look. I decided to show a little bit of my socks through my boots, it was seriously a coincidence that they matched my scarf.

More outfits!! I’m finally styling the leather leggings, two different ways today. Leather leggings can be dressed up or down so they’re a great piece to pack.

THE 15 PIECES ARE: jacket, cardigan, tank, lace-up shirt, flannel, turtleneck, tee, skirt, joggers, leather leggings, black jeans, baggy/ripped jeans, adidas, boots, purse. The necklace, sunnies and scarf are accessories you can add to any outfit.

Outfit 11 was a mix of dressing up/down, the silver necklace and chiffon tank dressed it up, while the oversized cardigan dressed it down. Adding another jacket over top is a way to wear this outfit for the colder months. This outfit includes the bag, cardigan, tank, leggings, boots and sunglasses.

Outfit 12 included a new hat that I bought so of course, it’s optional. I added the oversized tee, leather jacket and threw on my scarf and hat. Wearing two different tones of grey looked cool with the all black outfit. Definitely going to be wearing this scarf more often because it’s getting colder and colder.

outfits 5+6..15 pieces..20 ways

 I hope you know the drill now, but if not, here are another 2 ways to mix and match from the 15 pieces below. Styling the leather skirt was really fun because I don’t wear skirts too often. Skirts are a must because you can wear them on a night out with some booties or during the day with a pair of tights and a comfy cardigan. The weather has been unexpectedly nice for the past few days and I may as well take full advantage and shoot the skirt outfits.

Outfit number 5 consisted of the skirt, oversized tee, cardigan, boots and purse. I love all the draped layers and textures in this outfit. For colder days ahead, you can add a pair of tights, your warm, wool jacket and you’re good to go.

DSC01085 Outfit 6 is probably my favourite look so far, feminine but sporty and cool. I added the beanie to keep it extra casual and huge sunglasses were a must (even if it’s not sunny because #yolo). The piece that ties the outfit together is the flannel around the waist. Something else that could be done is to wear socks that show a few inches above your boot; this would make the outfit even more sport-looking (soccer inspired). The pieces included the tee, flannel, skirt, bag and boots. Sunglasses and beanie are optional.

Outfits 3 + 4 | 15 Pieces.. 20 ways

Outfits 3 and 4 are here! Definitely going for a casual, #tgif look here with sneakers and a leather jacket. As usual, here’s the collage of the 15 pieces and below are two ways to style the pieces.

THE 15 PIECES ARE: jacket, cardigan, tank, lace-up shirt, flannel, turtleneck, tee, skirt, joggers, leather leggings, black jeans, baggy/ripped jeans, adidas, boots, purse. The necklace, sunnies and scarf are accessories you can add to any outfit.

Outfit number three was a little bit risky for me because I don’t usually like wearing crop tops, mostly because you can tell that I have ate a lot of food that day, relatable though? But I love the colour of this top and the lace-up so I couldn’t resist. You could easily wear high-waisted pants and tuck it in. I wore my joggers for a comfy/sporty look to match with the sneakers. Overall, this outfit includes the lace-up top, leather jacket, bag, joggers and sneakers.

Outfit number four was all about being cozy and comfy, two words that one must associate with Fall. A cowl neck, knit sweater plus a huge, fuzzy scarf = the best Fall outfit ever. I tucked in the front of the sweater to separate the pieces and to keep the outfit from looking to baggy. In addition, wearing a top-knot is my favourite lazy day hairstyle that still looks like you put effort in. This outfit includes the cowl neck sweater, joggers and sneakers.   DSC01036

Series: 15 pieces..20 ways

Are ya’ll ready for this? I’m starting a series of 10 posts, about 15 key pieces to pack while traveling and 20 different outfits you can make from them. I bet you’ve seen the articles on Pinterest of ‘How to pack for 3 months in a carry on’ or ’10 pieces, 20 outfits’. They always intrigue me because I love packing and I love finding new ways to wear the clothes I have. This series will be my spin on these posts.

Let’s get the deets:

  • The most important detail is that this series is a part of my coursework for University in Scotland. I figured since I came here with only two suitcases, and had to pack minimally, it would be a great idea to share the different ways to wear what I packed.
  • The outfits will be for Fall weather (if you live in a colder climate), I’m living in Scotland right now which has similar weather to my home in Canada.
  • Each post will have 2 outfits featured in it (2 outfits x 10 posts=20 outfits… yay!) and the collage of the 15 pieces. I will be talking about why I paired these together and where you can wear them.
  • Accessories, bags and makeup are not included in the 15 key pieces because they are items that do not take up a lot of room in your suitcase and can be worn with every single outfit created

I hope you enjoy this series and are inspired to find new ways to wear your clothes, whether you’re travelling or at home. Thanks for reading and I’ll talk to you soon!

Sporty Layers

Coming right at you with another outfit post in Scotland. It’s getting a little colder here, so the layers are coming out; beanie, multiple shirts and a heavier jacket. I wanted to make this look sporty/casual and my bomber jacket was the inspiration. Not going to lie, I bought this jacket in Germany right before coming to Scotland because of the plaid lining (I wanted to feel a little bit Scottish before arriving). Instead of wearing workout leggings, I opted for a more stylish option to add some texture to the outfit, this being (faux) leather leggings. DSC00773 DSC00769 DSC00786 DSC00785 DSC00793 DSC00790 If you remember me talking about my favourite oversized tee from Brandy Melville then let me tell you, it’s also the best tee to layer under sweaters or other shirts.  DSC00782 DSC00780 If you hear people say that your shoes tie your outfit together, they are right. This outfit would not have been the same without some Adidas Originals
