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!

The days ahead (exciting news!)

I have some extremely exciting news to share with you all. As you know, I am studying fashion management in Toronto (Humber College), and I got the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Aberdeen, Scotland (RGU) for part of my third year!!!!! I am beyond excited. like it really does not feel real. I have never been to Europe, so of course I’m going to be doing some travelling before I go to school.

My first stop is London, then taking the train to Paris, flying over to Rome (I’ll be there for my 20th birthday!), then over to Germany and finally to the last stop, Scotland. I’ll be doing so many things and each day will bring something new. I can’t wait to share my days with all of you! I bought a new camera so my pics will be extra fleek and I’m going to try to vlog my trip and make a few videos as well.

Make sure you’re following me on Instagram @hungry4style_ to keep up with all the action. I seriously cannot wait to take outfit pics beside the Eiffel Tower or down a cobblestone path in London. Also, if you have any places to eat, shop or see in any of the places mentioned above, please, please share in the comments below or on my Instagram.

 I’m so excited to share this journey with all of you and I hope you like the posts!!

Rain, Rain Go Away

Welp, I wanted to take blog photos today for an outfit post but this rainy weather has stopped me. I’m having the blogging itch and the need to write and share with you guys! So, I want to share some rainy day necessities, whether you’re out and about or just chilling at home. Hope you enjoy and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @hungry4style_ 

Numero 1. Rainy days make me just want to snuggle up on the couch, eat, drink coffee, watch movies and scroll through Tumblr and Instagram. I want to share some of my key clothing pieces that are the comfiest to relax in. A fuzzy, mohair sweater is like, the definition of comfy clothes. Aerie also sells THE cutest bralettes and PJ shorts so I highly recommend grabbing some.

Numero 2. When I actually have to go out and do stuff on a rainy day I definitely can’t go out wearing my fav white sneakers and t-shirt. I 100% need a jacket, boots and an umbrella, ella ella, eh, eh, eh? Sorry, couldn’t pass up the chance to mix in a little Rihanna. An oversized, hooded coat is perfect to keep your outfit underneath dry and perfect. My hair goes super frizzy in the rain so a beanie is great way to contain the frizz so I don’t look like Monica (from Friends and I love you if you can picture it without googling) on vacation.

Summer Days Ahead

PHEW! It was hot this past long weekend, and I had Monday off work so I had to bust out the shorts and enjoy the sun. I am sooo looking forward to more sunny and hot days to wear my summer clothes. That reminds me, I also need to go shopping for some more.

 I hope you like this outfit! Stay tuned for more and more blog posts every week! I am getting back into it full force since I am off school for the Summer and should (should being the key word) have more time to take pics and (hopefully) inspire you all!

IMG_4370 My outfit is all from Express, minus the leather converse and sunglasses. I’ll link everything at the bottom incase you like anything and want to buy it yourself! This pajama style of shorts are so cute for Summer and um, hello, SO COMFY. They can be dressed casually or to go out for patio drinks at night.

 . My jean jacket is the newest purchase and I wasn’t sure about it but I got it anyway, lol don’t we all do that sometimes. Now that I have worn it, it’s going to be my new Summer staple for layering. The rips in it is what attracted me at first and it’s whats keeping me in love.

 Since it was a hot summer evening, I dressed casual and put on my leather converse and added my fringe bag. I went very minimal on the jewelry with just my ring and a couple beaded bracelets.

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_ !!!

Casual Friyay

Guys, it’s Friday, it’s payday, it’s 19 degrees outside (celsius) and it’s sunny. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS???? Life is great, that’s what it means. I am temporarily blocking the fact that I have five exams next week from my brain and enjoying today. I hope you are all doing the same, especially my fellow college student friends!

I wore a very casual outfit today; black skinnies, converse and a tee. I feel like I need to go shopping and buy a few more pairs of pants and some Spring layering shirts. Let me know if you have any suggestions. It feels so good to be able to get nice pictures taken outside in the GORGEOUS sunny weather. Hope you like and TGIF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ps. read down below for the delish recipe for the frap I got from Starbucks.

OMG, so during class I was lurking the ‘secret menu’ at Starbucks because I was really and I mean really craving a frappucino. So I got a java chip frap with 2 pumps toffee nut, maple syrup and mocha syrup drizzled on top. YUM. IMG_3879 IMG_3881 IMG_3883 IMG_3891 IMG_3907 IMG_3912Coat: Forever 21 | Tee: Express | Jeans: Express | Converse: Soft Moc | Backpack: Call it Spring | Sunglasses: Forever 21

Easter Dresses under $50

Happy Easter! This post is a little late but I hope it can still inspire your outfits for this Easter weekend. I found some dresses under $50 that are perfect to wear for Easter dinner or just because! The dresses are also perfect for the Spring/Summer season. Hope you enjoy and remember that eating pounds of chocolate today is totally acceptable.

Good/Casual Friday

And the long weekend begins…woohoo! I’m at home with my Family this weekend, so I went out today and did some errands. I went for a casual outfit that was also perfect for Spring. So, naturally, I went for my leather jacket, tee and girlfriend jeans. Now, if you’re asking what girlfriend jeans are, here is the answer; they are better then your boyfriends old, baggy jeans, they are the new fit that is shaped just for us women. No more saggy butt boyfriend jeans…lol. Holler! Hope you like this outfit! Stay tuned this weekend, I’m going to be sharing my fav dresses to wear for Easter!

Pattern Daze

 Mixing patterns can be tricky to pull off, but once you get it, your outfit looks amazing. I went for more subtle pattern mixing, with a plaid flannel and leopard print sneakers. Since both pieces are at opposite ends of the body, nothing clashed. I also haven’t worn my wool hat in a while and I felt like throwing it on, one of those last minute decisions. Have a great Friday!! IMG_3391

Get out of your Winter Outfit Slump

It’s the dead of winter and I think that’s also a metaphor for the death of my outfit creativity. I feel like I’m wearing the same outfits over and over and I can’t seem to get out of this slump. I’ve noticed other bloggers and social media people talking about being in a slump and I couldn’t really find any articles or posts on how to get out of one. I thought I would share some tips on how to finally get out of that damn slump! These have all worked for me and I hope they work for you too. Share in the comments what you do to get out of your outfit slump.

  • paint your nails (even if your clothes are the same, your nails can change every week)
  • re-organize your closet (you may find items you forget about and fall back in love with them)
  • take the afternoon to go through your clothes and style outfits you have never worn before and try them on (you’ll find some unusual combinations that you will love)
  • search tumblr and pinterest for #street-style pics that are sure to inspire
  • go to the mall! see whats in the windows, hot new colours, patters, fabrics and choose one peice to buy that will spice of your wardrobe for the rest of winter
  • try out new beauty looks, a statement lip can change the style of your entire outfit
  • go back to basics; white tee, jeans, boots, sweater, and add your own style to them (this gives you a solid foundation where you can add whatever you want to them)
