outfits 1 + 2 | 15 pieces..20 ways

This marks the first post in my 10 post series. A little reminder, there will be 2 outfits per post (2 outfits x 10 posts =20 outfits) as well as the collage of 15 pieces.  I’ll be mix and matching with all the pieces below to make 20 different outfits! Hope you enjoy and get some new inspiration for your garments.

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.

Outfits 1 + 2 are all about simplicity, wearing the basics but adding a cool necklace or layering up. One of my all time fav basics are black skinnies, they can be worn so many ways it’s insane. Outfit numero uno consisted of the black jeans, tank, jacket, bag and booties. I added a necklace to pull the eye away from all the black in the outfit. This outfit would be great for grabbing a bite after class or work.


Outfit number two consisted of the black jeans, flannel, cardigan, bag and booties. The cardigan is really long and oversized so it actually keeps you warm (for now, that is). Here we go again with tucking my shirt in, I can’t help myself; I only tucked one part in so that not every top I was wearing was flowing in the same way. I think it adds some dimension to an outfit. This outfit is really comfy, so definitely going to be wearing this to class or while out and about doing errands. DSC01013

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!
