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!!
Spring is in two days and who knows if the nice weather will come with it. But, just incase, I wanted to share my idea of the three must-have Spring coats. We can say goodbye with pleasure to those huge, wool-lined winter parkas and give a warm welcome to lighter, and more wearable spring coats. Ohhh, the excitement!!! Let me know in the comments what style is your favourite and don’t forget to follow me on Instagram: @hungry4style_
The Trench Coat
Everybody’s talking about the classic trench coat, and for good reason. It’s versatile, feminine, and looks great on every body shape.
The Pastel Leather (faux) Jacket
Play up the normal leather jacket with a fun colour, one that will go with almost anything in your closet.
For the warmer days, throw this coat over top of your outfit to instantly look all put together (even though you probably already do).
It’s been quite a long time since my last blog post, which I don’t like, but school always comes first in my life right now and I’ve just finished doing my midterms…FINALLY!!! For my fellow students, I feel you’re pain and hope you did well on your midterms! Along with finally being finished midterms, it seems as though the weather has warmed up, again, FINALLY!!! Needless to say, things are going well. I don’t want to jinx it though, because usually halfway through March another snow storm comes our way… the joys of living in Canada.
On another note, I’ve noticed that it has become pretty trendy to start buying flowers and post pics of them on Instagram, is this the new movement? Kind of like posting your meal before you eat? I don’t really care much for buying flowers or having them in my house, but I mean they are damn beautiful. All these pics are making me even more excited for Spring, because soon, lawns and parks will be full of colourful flowers. I’ll be posting my fav pics from Pinterest and WeHeartIt to get ya’ll in the mood for Spring! And maybe, if we all come together, our mind power will legitimately change the weather to warm, Spring weather, for good…lol. Also, just wanted to quote The Devil Wears Prada, “Florals? for Spring? Groundbreaking” because I keep gravitating toward floral patterns right now. Comment if you agree!
**As mentioned above, all pics taken from Pinterest and WeHeartIt**
Let me start off by saying that wearing these jeans on a day where the weather was like -100 degrees, was a horrible idea. I do it for the fashion and I’m sure many of you can relate..lol (especially my fellow Toronto/NYC bloggers).
Lately, I’ve been liking the idea of wearing oversized layers, and it helps when the weather is extremely cold. It’s fun to mix up patterns, fabrics and textures to create a look with depth. I’ve worn this tank and sweater combo before, with leather leggings, but this time I wanted a more grunge/loose/casual style. And what bottoms came to mind? BOYFRIEND JEANS.. DUH!! The bagginess of the jeans and the size of the rips played into the style I was going for. I had to throw on a hat or else I think my head was going to freeze off so I hope you like my ‘salt and pepper’ matching.. ha..ha…
I’m back with another round of current obsessions, I’m finding that whatever I’m obsessed with I usually don’t actually own the item…sadness. My obsessions can change daily, weekly or monthly but there is usually an item that I become obsessed with for a couple months. I want to share with you guys what I love because maybe you love them to or, once seeing this this post, you’ll become obsessed! Let me know in the comments!
SNEAKERS! I can’t stop looking at pics of sneakers on Tumblr, Insta and Pinterest… the twist it adds to your outfit is so enticing. I remember around three years ago I bought a pair of New Balance sneakers in this pink and black colour way, I thought they would make my outfit of jeans and a tee or leggings and a knit sweater look more sporty. Unfortunately, I hardly ever wore them but I think now, I need to go back home and look for them so I can wear them again. Good thing my foot size hasn’t grown at all..lol
I lurked very far into my personal Instagram account and found the photo of my New Balances. From three years ago and I captioned it “Being a loser and wearing running shoes to work”…. Don’t fret, I’m calling myself a hypocrite too but things change! I also worked in a Deli at a grocery store so I guess you could say I was ahead of the trend and stylish while serving sliced black forest ham (shoutout to my Deli family). I just realized, this is also a #TBT to my style when I was 16 years old.

I thought it would be funny to do a comical post about the sad truth of being a fashion blogger in the dead of Winter. If you live in a city or town where you actually endure the four seasons, then you can relate. Being January 31st, in Canada, it is near the middle of Winter and it is so cold outside that you need to wear like five layers and have no skin showing. It doesn’t matter if it’s sunny outside because the wind will make it 10x more cold. If it sounds like I’m complaining, I am.
If you’re a fashion blogger in a city or town that endures the four seasons then you definitely can relate. Trying to shoot pictures of your outfit is hard; you can try to bare the cold and take off your winter coat outside or go inside where the backgrounds, most likely, aren’t as cool. So here comes the sad truth, if I was going to do outfit posts they would look like this (for the most part) everyday… lol. #livingintorontofashionbloggerproblems
Getting a coffee is a must, everyday, or multiple times a day. Cinnamon dolce lattes are my fav.
Hat: H&M | Parka: Dynamite | Leggings: Express | Boots: Aldo | Backpack: Call it Spring | Gloves: Garage
Just a quick post today, I really loved my outfit yesterday so I had to share it with you guys. Layering is key for the colder seasons and it looks amazing. It adds depth to your outfit and you can mix/match with colours, patters, fabrics and shapes.
I wore a black jumpsuit from Express with a loose-knit cardigan from Suzy Shier, my fav chelsea boots from Call it Spring, (faux) Leather Jacket from Urban Planet and my new scarf from Express.
