Playing Dress Up

This past weekend I went to my sister’s graduation, naturally that meant a dress and heels. I usually don’t have places to wear heels and I don’t gravitate towards them on a daily basis because lets be honest, heels hurt. If you say they don’t you are lying to yourself. For this event I went with my black trapeze dress and wedges. Would you believe me if I told you I’ve had these heels since grade 9 (aka age 15)??? But hey, my feet haven’t grown so who cares! Lol. I wanted to find a more Spring-like dress but didn’t find one so I went with classic black. I thought these shoes screamed Spring so they completed the outfit. I also love the way this necklace falls with the neckline of the dress. I wore my black trench over top because it was a little chilly. I hope you like and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram for daily inspiration @hungry4style_ !!!

Switch out your black skinnies for a pair of lighter wash denim. Try a boyfriend fit, high rise or distressed pair to change it up. Sheinside $21.33

For a grand total of $147.81 you can get all these items (or ones similar) to give your wardrobe a fresh new look for Spring. These items can easily be paired with colours and styles from your existing wardrobe which means you don’t have to spend a lot to change it up. Also buying a new lip colour or blush is a great addition to your Spring look. Try out a coral/peachy blush and a pink lip.

Winter Basics

Lately, all I’ve been wanting to wear is basic tees, leather leggings, skinny jeans, long cardigan and layered outfits. It may have something to do with the fact that it is freezing outside and I have to admit, it’s hard to put outfits together in the winter. If it’s icy outside, you have to wear shoes that won’t slip or get ruined by the salt and you have to cover every inch of your skin so you don’t get frostbite. Needless to say, winter sucks sometimes!

 When getting dressed in the morning, I realized that I don’t really have the basics that I need. I’ve been looking online for what I want and I thought I would share with you guys some winter basics to have if you live in a cold climate, like me. Of course, make these basics your own style and choose colours you love, shapes that suit your body and layer how you like.
