Hello everyone! I am very soon going to go visit family in Québec and I am so excited! Since it will be approximately a six hour drive, I like to dress comfortably yet still stylish. Even though I do sleep most of the way and let my brother drive (LOL), I still like to look put together for when we stop and for when we are greeted when we arrive. Below I am sharing a couple of cute and comfy outfits perfect for a road trip!
1. Fila hoodie
2. Polo Ralph Lauren baseball cap
3. Gucci bag
4. Adidas sneakers
5. Mondetta leggings
When I travel, I like to wear lose fitting clothing that are not restricting and pinching. Leggings would be my top choice for bottoms as they are stretchy and also do not require a belt (which is quite uncomfortable for long car rides). This overall look is focused around the Fila hoodie, tying in the white, red, and navy hues with the other items. I love being able to wear athletic wear outside of the gym, and can easily be combined with higher end items to create an athleisure style, such as with the Gucci bag and Polo Ralph Lauren baseball cap.
Instagram Recap: February 2018
This look is a little more polished and leans towards a more business casual style. I have actually worn this exact outfit for a 4 hour train ride + 3 hour car ride and it is quite comfortable. Having a loose tee with an oversize blazer gave me the ease of movement I wanted and warmth against the AC. As for the bag, I find traveling with just a shoulder bag challenging, since I cannot fit all of my necessities. Using a satchel or tote bag lets me carry around a book or my Mac so that I may still be productive. If I am not the one driving, I will usually complete homework or study my textbooks.
1. Saski Collection sports bra
2. Saski Collction leggings
3. Topshop denim jacket
4. Ray-Ban aviators
5. Adidas sneakers
This look is very athletic and super comfortable. I wanted to stray from the typical black leggings, and loved the idea of an (almost) all white look. The oversized denim jacket ties everything together by making the outfit a little more conservative, and also because it is practical for staying warm. This is something I would definitely wear! Moreover, my absolute favourite accessory is a pair of aviator sunglasses! I never leave the house without a pair since my eyes are sensitive to the sunlight and I feel like it completes the look.
Have a fabulous day, xoxo!

golThis outfit is very simple; using the dress as the main point of interest, and keeping everything else neutral. A nude shoe helps elongate the leg, especially in this case, in which the dress hits below the knee.

This outfit combines chic with sport. The sweater is super comfortable (great for those lazy days), and looks even better paired with white denim, which makes the navy pop. I styled this look with a brown leather bag and shoes, which gives it a nautical vibe.
I have actually worn this outfit numerous times for midterms and final exams, as it is really easy to assemble, but still looks put together! I wore my favourite booties, as seen below. Alternatively, this outfit would look great with white sneakers too!

Totally feeling the early 2000s vibes with this outfit! I recently purchased this denim jacket and instantly fell in love with it! To get an oversized, boyfriend effect, I went up a few sizes. The rolled-up sleeves are for practicality but also add to the laid-back look. For the remainder of the outfit, I decided to opt for a black and white palette, including black skinny jeans, a white tee, white sneakers, and a black leather tote. In the future, I am definitely looking forward to styling my denim jacket with a light-wash or white denim.
This outfit style is comfortable and casual, and can be worn for many everyday activities. Particularly, I wore this outfit to one of my final exams. It is fast and easy to put together as to not take away any studying time. One trick I have developed over the years to get dressed efficiently in the morning is to either plan your outfit the night before or put it together in your mind while doing hair and makeup. Getting dressed is usually the last step in my morning routine, as to not get any makeup or hair products on the clothing.
Hope your day is filled with sunshine and love, xox!

Pairing this off-the-shoulder mint blouse with white jeans brings out the colouration of the top. Furthermore, coordinating the gold accents on the jewelry and bag brings cohesiveness to the outfit.

I have always loved wearing an oversized blazer paired with a t-shirt and skinny jeans! It is such an easy outfit style to create, and a great use of wardrobe basics. I usually wear a lot of blazers during early fall and spring. It keeps me warm during the morning chill, and I can easily remove the blazer as it warms up during the day. With this oversized/boyfriend blazer look, I have found that rolling up the sleeves brings a touch of femininity to the overall look. This helps since the sleeves are usually a little longer, and also helps to avoid looking like you just don’t know your proper size in clothing, and we all know how wrong-sized clothing just does not look right, whether it is too small or too large.
I styled this look with black ankle booties and a black leather tote. However, it can easily be styled with white sneakers for a more laid back and comfortable look.
This blazer was actually purchased at Costco (bless Costco!) for a fraction of the original in-store cost, a couple years back. I try not to purchase anything at full-price since I am a student on a budget and school tuition is not cheap (a sad truth), so when I find good quality items at low prices, I jump at the opportunity.
Have an amazing day full of love and happiness<3

This is a simple, everyday look that can be recreated with almost any t-shirt + cardigan combination. It is comfortable yet does not look shabby. Even though this outfit is basic, I still look for quality. For t-shirts, I only buy 100% cotton and look to see if the seems stretch and distort after washing. For cardigans, I prefer wearing 100% cotton or wool/cashmere blend. Or course by going with wool or cashmere there is a significant increase in price, but the quality is there and it is a garment that will last a long time. I think of these purchases as investments pieces, since initially get higher quality and only have to purchase it once or twice in my life, rather than buying a cheaper product and having to buy it over and over again. This will not only end up being more expensive, but will waste other resources such as time and effort spent shopping for the sam item. For example, the cardigan I am wearing is something my mom gave me from her own wardrobe. You would not guess how old it is… approximately 15 years old! It has been worn numerous times, yet looks brand new! By buying a quality item and taking care of it (gentle cycle wash with cold water, and hung to dry), your clothes can last a long time and look great!
I paired this particular look with my white Converse sneakers, but it can also be worn with black ankle booties. For the bag, I like to match my shoes or the general tone of the outfit. Here, it is white and black, hence why I chose my black bag rather than other colours. I like using a tote because it doubles as my “school bag”. It is spacious enough to carry around my Mac and a textbook/notebook, with other school supplies. Again, I see this as an investment piece that will kill two birds with one stone, thus why I opt for a higher quality bag. I look for leather exterior, thicker handles/straps (to support the weight), and a well-lined interior with pockets and pouches. I have found that nylon or faux-leather bags are of lesser quality, and always end up tearing or having distorted seams.

This outfit is inspired by the pink blooms of spring. I love how the blush blouse coordinates so well with the nude accessories! Moreover, this bag is currently on my wishlist, it is just a matter of time now!

Wearing this outfit, I feel like Barbie! I LOVE the bright pink colour of the blouse and it makes me feel feminine and empowered. Paired with the white jeans really made the pink pop! I styled this outfit with a brown leather tote and brown ankle booties (I always coordinate my shoes and bag colour, kind of OCD in that way), but could of been worn with a black bag and black shoes instead. However, I wanted to stray from the black and white and bring out some warmer earth tones. Just like how I coordinate my shoes and bag, I always coordinate my metallics. I will either wear all gold, or all silver. For this look, I went with gold, as seen with the metallic gold accents on my bag, earrings, and bracelet. Overall though, I wear more gold than silver. It just so happens I have more gold accents in my wardrobe, and to be honest, I like how it brings out the metallic sheen in my hair.
Ideally, I would of worn this outfit as is, but it is still cold outside. Thus, the black cardigan, which later was paired with a black pea coat. Just when I thought it was getting warmer, the opposite happens. In fact, it was snowing all day today and yesterday 😦 I hope that wherever you are reading this from has a little bit more sunshine!
Have a nice weekend!

This outfit blends a pastel pink with a neutral white. Keeping everything else subdued, the pink cardigan is the attention-seeker. With the elongated cut and tied sleeves, it definitely creates a feminine and soft look.
