Fall-Fashion Lookbook: The Weekend Girl

You’re either already stressed from school and the assignments seem to just be piling up or you’re working that 9-5 and then some; regardless, this is a look fit for any girl trying to clear her head and have some fun on a weekend. Check it out below!

weekendBow Accented Blouse: Let’s face it, bows make everything instantly cuter. A blouse like this is the perfect look for an evening in the city. Sheer is great fabric to be wearing during the transition between seasons because of how light the material is, but if the nights are getting chilly then make sure to grab a sweater to throw over.

OOTD: Dress Me Up, Dress Me Down

DSC_0009One of the best things about fall approaching is the ability and ease of modifying an outfit. Dressing a look up or down becomes much easier! This look I’m wearing above, for example, started as a more business-casual look! Running in and out of meetings in the morning I wore a pair of heels and leather jacket. But as the day continued, going to the mall and out for dinner in that outfit wasn’t an option.

DSC_0025I decided to ditch the heels and opted out for my super low-cut Converses and traded the blazer for this baggy knit cardigan. Both were really simple and easy day looks. Minimal jewellery in both – never forget any metal watch makes a little statement on its own.

How do you dress your looks up and down?

OOTD: Something Blue

Been a while since I’ve written one of these, feeling a little rusty but all for good reason! Regardless if the posts stop the fashion doesn’t – check out my outfit from last night!

While sometimes my look is more edgy, most times it’s classic chic. Last night I wore these great pair of flared jeans with a white quitted t-shirt. I wasn’t in the mood for any chunky statement necklaces so I kept it light with this blue stone necklace. Finally finished the look with some pumps and my new favourite orange tote!

Let me just take the time to also say that I’m a huge believer in jeans being just about the best invention in the world! Their versatility and comfort level make them my go-to bottoms when creating any look!!

Get this look – Jeans: Abercrombie & Fitch, T-shirt: Reitmans, Heels: Le Chateau, Necklace: Unknown (gift from Syria), Tote: Payless for only $12!

 

New Years’ Shopping Guide

Have you left everything to the last minute again? NYE is just around the corner and maybe you haven’t even started shopping for your night out in the city. Stress no more, this shopping guide is your one stop check list for everything you’ll need!!

1) The Outfit 

Deciding what to wear for New Years can be tricky, but it shouldn’t be. Figure out what you’ll be doing and this will be easier. If you’re going to a club or party, keep in mind that you should take advantage of the occasion and dress up a little.

dresses

These two dresses are great examples of what you could wear. The one on the left has amazing gold lace detailing and won’t need much work to get you ready for your night out. The one on the right is an all black sequin dress.. and you can’t go wrong with sequins on New Year’s. The only thing I would change about the black look is the tights, I’d pick a sheer black rather than the jet black the model is wearing. Both these dresses are from Le Chateau and can be bought on their website or in stores.

2) The Clutch

Let’s face it, NYE can get sloppy sometimes and we tend to get a little forgetful as the night goes on. Having a perfect clutch that will hold all your precious belongings is essential. If you’re wearing a solid colour from head to toe, pick out a clutch with some glitter, it will definitely spice up your look. The most important thing to remember when shopping for a clutch for New Year’s is to pick one out that has a crossover chain, so you don’t leave it sitting on a table somewhere. The one below is from Aldo, which has some amazing clutches in stores now!

3) The Lipstick

This one is easy, pick a great lipstick to throw in your clutch. Go for that bold red you’re usually afraid of wearing or that dark purple you wouldn’t dare to wear to work. It’s NYE and no one will be able to judge your choice in colour!

4) The Shoes

Maybe the most important of them all… what to wear on your feet! NYE is a LONG night, but if you’re like me, heels are the only answer. I’ve never been a fan of carrying a pair of flats in my purse and changing into them half way through the night either. Pick a comfortable heel from the start. If you’re living in a city that is covered in snow right now, it might work to your advantage. Try finding a heeled bootie that usually has a thicker (more comfortable) heel! But if you have a pair of heels you’re dying to wear that you bought 3 months ago and haven’t had to chance to wear yet, then check out my older post, Easy Steps to Painless Heels.

A little faux never hurt no body… and this fur vest from Forever 21 is def a winter season must-have. I decided to keep the colour tone calm to match the beige fur with this sheer Tiffany blue blouse and dark wash jeans. Paired it off with two-tone beige heels and of course…

I am so in love with this sweater from Five 0 Seven. For those who haven’t heard of the store, it is a Canadian owned, multi-brand retailer which brings in some of the most unique and high quality clothing in my closet.

My closet is full of black…sweaters, t-shirts, cardigans, jeans, leather, but I always fall in love with black again when I find something slightly different than the usual.

This sweat is embroidered with silver beading along the neckline, and accented with a asymmetrical cut-out on the back. I paired it with some classic black jeans from Zara and black leather booties from Aldo.

Ready for another day of university and Fashion Week in Toronto.
