Summer Came Back For A Day

As the last bits of summer are fading, I’m trying to prolong the sweaters and fall colors as much as possible. It was 27 degrees (Celcius) so I was still able to wear my regular summer attire. I have a feeling this may be one of the last days this year that I will able to dress this summery. Am I sad? That is to be decided.

I just got this new tank top from Langford Market. It’s so pretty and although I’m able to wear it now without any sort of jacket overtop, I’m super excited to bring it into the fall time too and layer cardigans and blazers over it. I paired it with the most summery pair of pants I own. For shoes, I wore my nude sandals with a chunky silver heel. I totally forgot I owned these shoes and I’m a bit embarrassed to say, I’ve only worn these a couple times this whole summer. Oops.

Accessories are once again very simple. I really haven’t been changing them at all. My Kate Spade purse and my Marc Jacobs watch are all I need! I also wore my new wooden cross necklace from 9th and Elm that has my favorite verse engraved on it. I also finally changed my nail polish on my toes. I had a bright pink gel polish on them all summer but I figured that I needed something a tad bit darker so I painted this bright cobalt blue on them (and my fingernails too!).

Some Life Lessons

1-IMG_4359-001  1-IMG_4384-001          1-IMG_44401-IMG_4421-001 1-IMG_44641-IMG_4425-001 1-IMG_4479 1-IMG_4514 1-IMG_4385-001

This outfit will forever be known as the outfit I was wearing when I learnt that my best friend is a bitch. Notice the present tense, she really isn’t a nice person and I have absolutely no problem saying that. Throughout my life, I was always scared to lose friends. I didn’t let fights bother me. I moved on, forgetting our fight, thinking our friendship was more important. But, sometimes friendships are toxic. When they are harming you and causing you more pain, then it’s time to move on. It’s not easy but some friends just don’t have your best interest at heart and that’s okay. You don’t need them in your life. I have some of the most wonderful friends in my life so why would I need one really horrible friend? I don’t.

Sometimes, there are miscommunications in life. At the end of the day, life is too short to hold grudges or be upset over things that aren’t going to affect you long term.

Anyways, on to the outfit. My sweater is from Zara and I absolutely love it. It’s lightweight and comfy and I feel like it turns this plaid skirt into a little less school-girl and a lot more chic. I paired it with black tights, my newest black booties which I’m so glad to have finally found the perfect pair! They’re as simple as they come, with no decorations, no heel, no nothing. Just black boots. Accessories are simple as well. My Kate Spade purse and regular jewelry was all I needed for this look.

So kids, instead of taking my style advice, take my life advice. If a friend doesn’t feel right in your life anymore, then it’s time to move on. It will be hard but if it’s the right thing to do, then the future will be a happier place for you. I promise. However, sometimes friendships are more important. When a friend hurts you, it can be hard to see the happier times you’ve had with them. But if you’ve been friends with them for five years, it’s not worth it to end a friendship over something less significant. Friends over boys. That’s all I have to say.

School Has Commenced

School has commenced and I am not happy about it. So I wore all black to tell the world just how depressed I am about having to wake up at 6am. It’s not a fun time, I promise.

You might be wondering why I’m wearing a dress to university. My mom sure was. I received a very long lecture on how I should be putting more effort into learning and studying than my outfits. Here is my rebuttle. It takes the same amount of time to put on a dress or put on jeans. And I’m just a very girly person so I will keep wearing dresses and skirts and curling my hair thank you very much.

I really love this dress. I picked it up from Zara and it’s the perfect little black dress. It has a high neckline that balances out the short skirt, with cute sleeves. I paired it with the Liam vest from Noul. It’s been a struggle not to wear this vest with every single outfit. It’s the awkward transition between summer and fall so I wore some very sheer tights and some dark green suede booties to add in a tiny bit of color.

My jewelry was very basic today. I wore my favorite necklace from H&M and my regular watch and bracelet. I haven’t been switching up my bracelets lately. I’m boring, I know. BUT, I am wearing a new purse today! To celebrate surviving my second week of my second year of university, I allowed myself to buy this gorgeous Kate Spade purse. I needed a new grey small purse and this one was on sale and it’s so darn cute. I love it!

AND PS. did you know that you get a student discount at Kate Spade?! 15% off! They told me they don’t advertise this discount, hence me never knowing this existed until now. So yeah, don’t say I didn’t tell you.

The leaves are falling and so are my dreams

1-IMG_4938 1-IMG_4945  1-IMG_4967  1-IMG_49871-IMG_4963 1-IMG_4995 1-IMG_50111-IMG_4975 1-IMG_5016 1-IMG_5026

Fall always hits so suddenly. One day the leaves are on the tree, I’m wearing shorts and skirts and then bam! The leaves fall and out comes the sweaters and the scarves.

I feel like this might just be the most autumn-y outfit I’ve ever worn and I couldn’t be happier. My favorite part about my outfit today is my scarf. I have been looking for this scarf for so long. I’ve seen it everywhere except it was always sold out at my Zara. However, as I was in the store today, I spotted it in the corner and cried. I’m so excited to have found it. I then went directly to H&M to buy this camel colored sweater to match the scarf. For a bit of warmth, I layered this navy vest. I’ve been really into vests lately. They are such great layering pieces and I love how they look with sweaters.

For my purse, I’m wearing this large black top-handle bag from Just Fab. I’m not sure if it’s just me but once the colder weather hits, I like to carry larger purses. I’m also loving the boots I’m wearing today. I saw these at Aeropostale and I thought they were the cutest things ever! However, it pains me that they have a heel. At university, we have this really slippery slanted floor leading down to the trains so I would die if I wore these shoes. But they’re so cute so I couldn’t pass them up. I’ll just have to find other places to wear them other than school.

So that’s my outfit. I’m basically a walking pumpkin… or a Pumpkin Spice Latte. I’m just the epitome of Fall. And I love it.

Plaid All Day, Everyday

For the majority of my life- actually no, I might be exaggerating. For just over a year now, I have been crazy about plaid. There’s something about plaid that just makes me so excited about autumn and the beginnings of winter. Last year I was on the search for the perfect flannel and this year, I was on the search for the perfect pair of plaid pants. I saw a particular pair of plaid pants onSheinside and the lovely Jalynn’s blog, but I was hesitant to order them online. I wasn’t sure how they would fit or how they would look. And if there’s anything I hate more than shopping online, it’s returns online. So, when I saw a similar pair at Urban Outfitters, I decided they could have a home inside my closet instead. Unfortunately, these ones are now sold out online, so I’ll link a similar pair down below.

These pants are the weirdest fitting pants I have ever tried on. They are super high waisted with a really baggy crotch and super tight fitting ankles. Surprisngly, I kinda like the fit. They look cool hey? Because they are so high waisted, I was able to pair them with my black crop top that I never seem to wear. For shoes, I wore my black booties that go with everything.

I added my leather jacket overtop. I think I look quite rebellious with the plaid and the leather. Am I right or am I right? For jewelry, I wore my two favorite necklaces. These were both passed down to me when my grandma passed away and I couldn’t love them more. They are very dear to my heart.

Also, can we take a moment to mourn the leaves on the ground? My trees are now bare. Winter is coming folks. I should start pulling out the parka and the Uggs.

Midterm season has hit and the past couple of weeks have been absolutely dreadful. Although I’m not one of those students who is just going to wear hoodies and sweats when they’re studying, I definitely don’t put as much effort into my outfits. School comes first and comfort is key. And this outfit is one of the comfiest ones I’ve ever worn.

My main studying staple is a scarf. Scarves are the ultimate layering piece. Too hot? Take the scarf off. Too cold? Wear the scarf like a blanket .Just right? Wear the scarf around your neck. How much better can it get? 

The scarf that I’m wearing today is a shawl style so I literally look like I’m wearing a blanket all day. And it feels like that too. I wore it over my favorite black turtleneck sweater. For pants, I’m wearing leggings because there’s nothing comfier than that. These leggings are from Onzie and I’ve been loving them. They have a mesh panel down the side and the material is similar to Lululemon leggings but even better! I find they’re more silky and don’t pill like my Lululemon ones tend to do. 

For boots, I’m wearing my trusty Hunter rain boots. It didn’t end up raining today, but at least I was prepared. I’m wearing a new purse today! I’ve been looking for a bag with a bit more color because I tend to carry only neutral bags. This one is from Zara and is a light blue color with black detailing. Super cute.
