Shop this look: RW&Co blouse (oos; find similar here) | Guess belt (oos; find similar here) | Kensie jeans (oos; find similar here) | Michael Kors tote bag in colour luggage | pearl earrings

This is probably one of my favourite outfit combinations! It is simple, yet the cold-shoulder cut and ruffles of the blouse in addition to the leopard print belt make it bold. Also, I am absolutely in LOVE with this blouse! Definitely a best-loved in my wardrobe! It can be worn in numerous styles, such as romantic, edgy, and even business. It is not shown in the pictures, but I wore brown leather lace up booties to complete the look, as seen below.

Shop this look: Aldo booties (on sale now!!!)

I wore these booties almost everyday in Fall 2016 and Fall 2017 and they are still holding strong. They are SUPER comfortable, and the heel is not too high, so they are still practical for walking around campus.

Have a nice rest of your week:)

Inspiration Tuesday- Blue Butterfly Sleeve Blazer

Hello all! For those of you who do not know, I absolutely LOVE online shopping, especially online browsing. Recently, I came upon this butterfly sleep Ponte blazer and was immediately smitten. The deep blue embellished with the pleated sleeves truly delighted me! Below, I am sharing an outfit idea with this blazer as the focal point. Enjoy!

OOTD: Pink Sleeveless Blouse

Shop this look: Laura blouse (oos; find similar here) | Tommy Hilfiger cardigan (oos; find similar here) | Kensie jeans (oos; find similar here)

Even though this is a Spring/Summer sleeveless blouse, I still enjoy wearing it year round. During the colder days, I simply pair it with a cardigan, as seen above. Alternatively, this can be worn with a blazer and tucked into a pencil skirt or dress pants for a more business formal look. This cannot be seen in the pictures, however, the upper portion of the back of this blouse is actually a criss-cross pattern of strips of the same material. This is what initially drew me to this garment, and it adds a subtle yet fun detail to it.

When it starts to get warmer outside, I would wear this blouse with white denim or denim shorts, paired with sandals and a cute leather shoulder bag. The one I have in mind is a white leather bag embossed with roses by Karl Lagerfeld (see below).

My Go-To Outfit Formula for School

Trying to get dressed in the morning can be challenging. We are not all blessed as Cher in Clueless, with her outfit generator, therefore trying to put an outfit together in a limited time frame usually results in 1) a not-so-flaterring outfit combination, 2) sweatpants and a messy bun, 3) being late, or 4) losing sleep (I know how precious of a commodity this is in university :/). Over the years, my natural style has resulted in me repeating the same style of outfit with different pieces ever day; I like to call this my outfit formula. It is very simple to use and can result in numerous different outfits; blouse + jeans + coordinating bag and shoes. Simple. Done. Nothing special or complicated, and always results in a flattering outfit. Below are some examples of my last looks following this concept:

Alternatively, during warmer days, I will wear shorts instead of jeans. Still makes for great outfits!

Although there are numerous different outfits, there are not that many individual pieces; they are just reused a lot in different outfit combinations. So many more combinations can be made with these items of clothing; the possibilities are endless!

This outfit is great for the office; it is conservative yet still has a flare for fashion! Alternatively, this can worn more casually if you switch out the skirt for jeans. Also, I have recently purchased these Sam Edelman heels (in a different colour however), and they are by far the comfiest and most flattering shoes I have ever worn! Highly recommended!

Shop this look: Karl Lagerfeld tweed blazer  (out of season; find similar here + its on sale!!) | Kensie jeans (oos; find similar here) | Le Château cami (oos; find similar here) | pearl studs earrings

 

Here was one of my looks last week. I am absolutely in LOVE with this Karl Lagerfeld tweed blazer! The quality is amazing and it fits like a glove. I remember when I first tried it on at the store, my mom told me I would be crazy not to get it. And so I did, and I have never been discontent with my purchase; plus it was on sale! It was such a good investment piece, and it is a classic in any wardrobe.

This is the perfect time of year to wear this type of blazer. It is still a little chilly outside, but sometimes too warm to be wearing a coat. This look can be easily paired with a silk scarf if you still want protection from the cold wind.

Hope you all have a great rest of your week:)
