Three Holiday looks

Ah Christmas, Everyones favourite time of the year ! There is just a certain magic in the air that comes from everyone wanting to spend time with their family and friends. I love going to the mall and seeing people pick things out for their loved ones. There is also amazing food and christmas carols! with the holidays fast approaching I thought I would share Three christmas looks for the holidays that would be perfect for any event you might have this year! For the first look I am wearing this Maroon Midi skirt from Mendocino which has been a favourite of mine this season, I love the rich colour and dramatic draping. For my Top I am wearing this half sweater / half blouse top from Topshop..... that sounds confusing... let me explain.... The core part of the top is made out of a thin sweater but the sleeves are chiffon. I think the polka dot and oversized sleeves add such amazing detail to the outfit that you don't achieve from just a plain black top. For my hair I just tied a skinny scarf to my half up- half down do for a more 60's vibe. 

The second look might be one of my favourites I am wearing this green and black plaid dress from uniqlo (Its actually from the kids section.. but hey if it fits it fits!) I find it really hard to find stuff like this in the adult section so I always browse through the kids department. I layered the dress over a white chiffon blouse From Forever 21 just to add a bit of lightness to the outfit. But I think what really ties the whole look together is the matching jacket!  I got this jacket from Lord and Taylor a couple of years back !  yes surprisingly its not a matching set but the colours and print looks perfect when paired together. I am so happy I own both pieces and absolutely adore wearing them together. For a more youthful tough I added a black leather beret from Zara. 

For the last look I have something a bit more casual, I recently got these red plaid pants from H&M and they are EVERYTHING ! The print is perfect for this time of year and adds interest to any outfit. Since the pants are so loud I just wore a simple white knit sweater that is also from H&M , I've actually had this sweater for a couple of years now and its probably one of the most worn pieces in my closet. To bring the colour back in I topped the look off with a red beret that I got at winners. I hope you guys liked the looks, let me know which one was your favourite in the comments below as well as if you would like to see these looks in motion make sure you check out this post on my youtube channel (Link here)

Peacock Feather Blouse

It's the time of year where we are layered under jackets and scarves, and we tend to fall into the trap of wearing plain coloured tops and sweaters and letting our coats do the talking, seeing as its the thing most people see. But I have been more interested in Statement blouses, I'm definitely a blouse girl i love layered them under sweaters or just wearing them on their own under coats. This particular blouse is from Romwe and it is the Fringe patch mesh top (Link here). I love the peacock feather like print all over the blouse along with the extended frayed edges, I think it creates a really interesting look. I paired the top with this pair of red high waisted flared jeans from Zara, These pants are so much fun to wear and are incredibly figure flattering. They also make me look way taller than I actually am. I also added a red cabby hat from Shein that can also be seen here. To tie the black colour back in I used a black leather belt that belonged to my mom and some simple black kitten heels.  I hope you guys like this look, if you want to see some more statement blouse check out my wishlist from Romwe below !

Yellow Plaid

Plaid is always my favourite things to wear during the fall and winter months, its a fun print that comes in a variety of different colours and styles. There is always the typical plaid colours; red, blue, black, white and green so when I saw this yellow pair of plaid pants on the Romwe website I knew I had to have them! They are the Tartan boot cut pants (Link here). They are high waisted which I love and the print and colour combination reminded me of something that would be worn in the 60's- early 70's. I paired the pants with a plaid black ribbed mock neck shirt from Ardene, its a really simple basic top that I have in a few different colours ! And to tie in the yellow I wore a matching yellow beret that I ordered off amazon ! With the holidays coming up its the perfect time to wear plaid  so below you'll find a plaid wishlist from romwe ! my top favourite plaid pants and skirts!

December Stars

With Decembers quick arrival I've been pulling out all of the red coloured clothes in my closet! This knit sweater has been in my collection for a few years now and its still one of my favourites because of the rich burgundy shade and because its so cozy! I paired the sweater over a simple white collared blouse just to give the outfit a bit of brightness. For my skirt I wore this amazing denim skirt with stars going along the front as well as on the pockets on the back, I found this skirt while I was shopping at Simons on the thanksgiving weekend and I instantly fell in love. To keep the star Theme going I wore these sheer star print tights that add so much interest to any outfit ! Let me know your thoughts on this outfit in the comments below ! 
December 01, 2017


Starting off the lookbook is probably the "pink-iest" of the looks as well one of my personal favourites! The main part of the outfit is this amazing light pink tweed coat, that my best friend Adrienne found for me while thrifting (Shoutout go follow her on instagram link here.) As you guys know a tweed moment is always a good idea, I decided to pull some of the lighter pink from the coat for the sweater so i am wearing this - also thrifted- cashmere sweater (Similar Link) . I paired the sweater with these amazing plaid pants from Uniglo. Again trying to pull colours from the coat I grabbed this pale rose pink beret that I got from Stradivarius while I was in Spain (Exact link here,) but my favourite part of the outfit might just be the small handbag. I have always been obsessed with mini bags I think thats the style of bag I mainly buy, i occasionally buy a crossbody bags I mainly gravitate towards mini hand held bags. This particular bag I found at winners for $25 can you believe it !  It was a such a steal for such an incredible bag!

The second look has a bit more rocker but still girly look, It definitely has a "Kate Spade feel but its not as cutesy as the first outfit. Since I wanted the hot pink to be the main focus of the outfit I kept the rest of the outfit neutral and one colour. To give it interest I played with different textures and Subtle patterns. For the blouse I am wearing a simple black blouse from Armani exchange that has a round crew neck collar, which is perfect for layering under collar (faux) fur pieces like this one that I found at Winners. The Patent leather skirt I'm wearing is from Express, I love the way it pops even in an all black outfit. To add a bit more interest I wore these AH-mazing dark grey polka dot tights  that add so much playfullness to the outfit ! Adding fun coloured or printed tights is such an underrated technic that was highly used in the 60's, which is probably why I love that era so much. 

The third look is a bit more street style with the oversized denim jacket and plain skinny jeans. I've been looking for a denim jacket with a pink fur collar for so long and I'm so happy I found it at winners (There are so many amazing finds at winners I'm telling you!) I paired the jacket with a plain cream coloured ribbed top from H&M, super basic I got it last year and I wear it underneath everything ! As for the jeans I am wearing these simple retro high waisted black skinny jeans from Garage (Exact link here) and some black skinny heel booties. To tie the pink in somehwere else in the outfit I wore a pink bow on my ponytail,  I've had this hair bow since I was a little girl so I'm not exactly sure where its from but its really special to me because I've had it for so long and I am still able to wear it. 

The fourth and final look is bringing it back to the light pink shade. I am wearing this amazing fuzzy pink sweater that I got from Forever 21 a few years ago and it has been a favourite of mine ever since, Its incredibly soft and flattering (And I mean look at the colour its perfect) I paired it with these grey plaid overall pants from Romwe (Exact link here) I think these pants are so figure flattering because they cinch in the waist and then have such a dramatic flare that makes you look way taller than you actually are (at a sad 5'5 I'm all about that extra illusion of height) I also love that you have the option to criss cross the overalls at the back for a more comfortable fit. For the shoes I just wore some simple patent leather black kitten heels, which seems like I'm always wearing them.  To top the look off i had to accessorize starting with this light pink beret which just so happens to match the sweater perfectly. The beret is from Simons and its the newest additions to my ever growing beret collection (Exact link here) For my earrings... they actually belong to my Mom (Or should I say belonged... because I don't think I'm giving them back) Hoop earrings have been everywhere lately and while I'm not a huge fan of the traditional hoop earrings this style of dangly circle earrings give of such a different vibe and I am obsessed with .
