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 17+18 | 15 pieces.. 20 ways

It’s all about the leather and black in outfits 17+18…what else is new? Layers are making another comeback in these outfits because lets get real, if you can wear multiple items at once and still look sweet, then why not, amiright?

 Outfit 17 had a lot of layers, again, a necessity for the fall weather. I used my scarf kind of as my jacket, wrapped around my shoulders. I added the flannel around the waste for a sporty look.
DSC01899

Outfit 18 kind of had the same vibe, but I actually wore my flannel and added a leather jacket. I think it looks cool how the shirt is really long, the flannel is a bit shorter and then the jacket is a lot shorter. Wearing two items with leather is okay here because it’s broken up by the shirts.

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.

More outfits!! I’m finally styling the leather leggings, two different ways today. Leather leggings can be dressed up or down so they’re a great piece to pack.

Outfit 11 was a mix of dressing up/down, the silver necklace and chiffon tank dressed it up, while the oversized cardigan dressed it down. Adding another jacket over top is a way to wear this outfit for the colder months. This outfit includes the bag, cardigan, tank, leggings, boots and sunglasses.

Outfit 12 included a new hat that I bought so of course, it’s optional. I added the oversized tee, leather jacket and threw on my scarf and hat. Wearing two different tones of grey looked cool with the all black outfit. Definitely going to be wearing this scarf more often because it’s getting colder and colder.

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 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.

Travel Essentials

As you know, I’ve been travelling around Europe and the UK, during these travels I’ve learned what items I NEED to bring with me. Whether it’s on the plane, in my purse or in my checked luggage. I’m legit obsessed with reading blogs and watching videos on travel essentials or flight essentials, so I figured I would create my own version and share with you guys! There’s a mix of everything in here; fashion, beauty, toiletries and more. Hope you enjoy and find some new items to bring on your next adventure!

  1. Sunglasses have many purposes, the main purpose, of course, is to protect your eyes from UV rays. However, the more important purpose is to make you look good, duh. Everyone is obsessed with Quay sunglasses and for good reason, every single pair they have looks amazing. I picked up a pair from Topshop in London and took them everywhere with me. Another purpose is hide those jet lagged eyes/ dark circles, I gotchu girl.
  2. My camera also went everywhere with me, so now it’s well travelled with a lot of pics on it. We all have phone cameras but sometimes it’s worth it to bring along a good quality digital camera so you can take great pictures and videos.
  3. I usually put all of my makeup in my checked luggage and kept a few items in my carry on with me. Concealer was something I could use to touch up makeup throughout the day or to just add a little something to your face after your flight.
  4. Another essential makeup item is some brow gel, or in my case, brow mousse. I feel that even if you don’t have any makeup on, filling in your brows, even just a little, can make a world of difference. I’ve been using the Clinique brow mousse and it adds subtle colour and keeps your hair where you want it. The brush is also really small so the mousse only goes where your brows should be.
  5. Headphones are a 1000000% must-have on any trip. They can block out the snores of your family while at the hotel or you can have your own little jam session on the train. I personally use Beats and my iPhone headphones.
  6. I’ve been in love with the Smashbox primer water, it gives your face a boost of freshness before applying makeup. I think it’d even be great to use to freshen your face up after a long flight.
  7. Another staple, a leather jacket can be worn with every single piece of clothing you packed and it also keeps you warm. For most of my travels, I just wore a leather jacket around London (the coldest place) and even while in Paris and Germany, I hardly ever left without it.
  8. My new fav sneakers, the Adidas Originals. Not even kidding, I wore these every day and they are still in great shape. An added bonus, they are so comfortable and I didn’t have a problem matching them to my outfits.
  9. I discovered Carmex in Germany while in Urban Outfitters and thought I would try it out. My sister said she used it all the time, back in the day. Any chapstick you have will do the trick but this one leaves your lips feeling tingly and smooth.
  10. For this item, a memory foam or beaded neck pillow is the best option. I made the mistake of buying a blow-up neck pillow and I wish I didn’t buy it. It was annoying to have to blow up, although it saved me space in my hand luggage, I will definitely be buying a foam one for the trip back home in December.
  11. Rollerball perfumes are the best thing to bring on any short or long vacation, they add just the perfect amount of scent and you don’t have to worry about it breaking in your luggage. My favourite perfume at the moment is the Nirvana by Elizabeth and James. However, since I am staying in Scotland for a few months, I brought the full size as well.
  12. One very important snack to bring on a plane is gum. I sometimes try and pretend my ears don’t feel like they’re going to explode while descending but man, I need that gum. Besides being your ears best friends, you can also freshen up your breath and have a clean feeling mouth.

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!!
