All Black

No shocker here, an all black outfit. I wanted to style my new shearling jacket for a blog post and I figured lets stick with an edgy, all black look. I wore my ripped jeans, converse and a black high neck shirt. I cannot wait to style this jacket many other ways but I had to break it in with a very typical outfit of mine. This jacket is just what I’ve been looking for; a more stylish option to my long parka and it actually keeps me warm. It’s usually very hard to dress nicely in Canadian winters because all you want to do is bundle up and not give a damn on how you look because keeping warm is all that matters!

Jacket: MissGuided | Top: New Look | Jeans: Express | Shoes: Converse

Styled: Flare Pants

Ahhhhh, flare pants bring some memories of the early 2000’s. I was only a young girl but I know my older sisters definitely rocked those boot cut and flare jeans. They’re back again because of the 70’s trend but now the flare is making it’s way to other types of pants. Being a curious fashion lover, I tried on a lot of flare pants but oh man, they did not suit me. Until now!! I found a great pair that fits me perfectly and doesn’t look like I’m wearing a maxi skirt/pj pants. Not going to lie, I kind of felt like Selena Gomez when she was wearing that silk PJ set around Paris.

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 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.

outfits 7+8 | 15 pieces.. 20 ways

More outfits have arrived! Since a lot of the pieces are black or grey, wearing light coloured jeans add a lot more colour to the outfit without being too wild. I mean light wash jeans aren’t really wild at all, but you know what I mean. I usually like to wear a belt with these jeans, since they are slightly high-waisted and of course, tuck in my shirt.

Outfit number 7 was simple, it included the jacket, lace-up top, jeans, boots and purse. The length of the top and the slightly high-waisted pants met right in the middle for the perfect balance. Adding a belt would be a great idea as well to add an interest point in the middle of the outfit.

Outfit 8 was really cozy, mostly because of the scarf. The long tee looked cool with the crop of the jacket. Another simple outfit; jacket, tee, jeans, boots and purse. This outfit gives off a slouchy yet put together vibe because of the baggy jeans contrasting with the tailored jacket.

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

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

OOTD | IN SCOTLAND!

I’ve been in Scotland for about two weeks and I friken love it here. It’s nothing like Toronto, or Canada for that matter. It’s so funny to see and experience all the differences between countries. To name one, no one piles onto the busses, no pushing or shoving (like on the TTC), they make a line and enter the bus in an orderly fashion…..crazy concept!

Onto the good stuff, I finally took some photos!! There are so many spots to take photos because every building looks like a cool castle. Everything is grey which makes for a great aesthetic, which is what it’s all about these days. Went to a park down the street from the residence I’m living in and got some shots. I have to say though, I regret everything I packed and so my outfits are literally just jeans, a tee or sweater and leather jacket. I do go to the shops like everyday, so hopefully I can mix it up once and a while.

OKAY. Legit though, I have been looking for an oversized black tee since birth and guess what? I FINALLY FOUND IT. I never usually look in Brandy Melville because I felt the ‘one size fits all’ wouldn’t fit me. While in Rome, as they say, I went into their store and tried this one on and I didn’t fall in love until I got back to the hotel and tried it on again. The tee is super soft and just flows every which way I wanted it too. It fits a bit tighter on the chest and arms and flows out.
