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.

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 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.

Never turn down shopping

 I thought I would do a surprise post showing you guys my favourite items I have bought recently! Even though my bank account says no, I have to say yes and NEVER TURN DOWN SHOPPING. Sometimes when I am out and about I think to myself “What is life if I am not even buying the things I like or want” so clearly at that point I start spending. I have been on the lookout for a bathing suit that is different from all the rest; meaning no bandeaus or string bikinis. I like to have something that not a lot of people would wear. I went into Dynamite and saw that all their bathing suits were on sale (JACKPOT!) so I headed on over to the table and started browsing. The bathing suit below caught my eye because of the bright colours and how well they blended together. Obviously the back of the top and the sides of the bottom are the best part, although at first I thought “No I can’t buy this, I will get really weird tan lines” but that didn’t matter as soon as I tried it on. I was sold. We all know that feeling when you first try something you like on and it looks and feels amazing. That was how I felt. Sexy, cool, beachy.

This next new item that has entered my wardrobe is a pair of peep toe sling-backs. I cannot even begin to tell you how long I have searched and searched and searched for a pair of shoes like this. I have spend countless hours looking online at every shoe store possible, every apparel store possible and not one pair yelled to me saying “BUY ME, I BELONG ON YOUR FEET LILLY!” But then, I took a trip over to Winners to buy some hangers and an umbrella. Obviously, I can’t help but look through the entire store while on the hunt. So you know the saying where when you’re least expecting it, you find what you’re looking for (that may have been a slightly different interpretation of it). That is what happened at Winners; I had just browsed my way through the purse and luggage aisles and started to head into the shoes. Skipped right to the aisle of my size and started looking and then it was like my eyes went straight to these babies. My heart probably skipped a beat because I had found a pair that was finally THE PAIR. You know what the perfect part is, they only had one pair in the entire store and it was my size so I would basically call that a miracle. A few ways to wear these shoes would be with: a pair of boyfriend jeans and white Tee (add some statement jewelry or a bold lip), your favourite summer dress or LBD, high waist distressed shorts and an oversized button down.
