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.

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 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.

 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.

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.

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

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.

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!
