Inspiration Tuesday: Blue Christmas

1 | 2 | 3 | 4

This look is perfect for a Christmas celebration with friends and family! It is really festive, with a touch of blue velvet and diamonds that sparkle like winter frosting. “Ladies of New York, frost yourselves!” – who knows where this line comes from? (It is a really funny movie. If you know it, let me know in the comments section below). If you live somewhere with a bit of a chill, throw a black fur coat over your shoulders for added warmth and style.

This outfit is very luxurious, using brands like Max Mara and Dior. It is elegant in the way that quality items are being used, and that it is uniform, mainly using black. The sweater, mini skirt, and over the knee boots combination is very on trend this fall and is perfect for the chillier Autumn days!

I am obsessed with this look! If I had an unlimited budget, I would be dressed in this manner EVERY DAY! Using neutral colours really creates an elegant and sleek outfit, and the high quality accessories make it look polished. Although this outfit is very expensive, investing in high quality items, fabrics, and brands ends up costing less in the long run. You will never have to repurchase the item, as they will last you a life time.

I am loving these colour tonalities for Fall! The burgundy poncho is the focal point of the outfit, keeping the other items in neutral shades of black and brown. Also, Fall is the time to bring out your leather riding boots! They are comfortable, warm, durable, and super fashionable! Especially this pair with both brown and black leather, they are very versatile and can be styled endlessly.

This look is perfect for Fall, with the double-breasted blazer and over-the-knee suede boots! It is a good mix of classy and edgy, especially with the moto-style leather leggings. The blush accents adds a hint of femininity to soften the overall look. Of course it can be interchanged with another colour, but as we all know, I am a pink kinda gal!

Plaid mini skirts are one of the most prominent fashion trends for Fall 2018! Paired with a beautiful oversized knit sweater that is super cozy for fall weather and brings out the camel undertones found in the skirt. Finishing the outfit with high-end designer items, such as the Gucci belt or the Chanel boy bag, really completes the look.

This is the perfect outfit to transition from summer to fall! The cami and cardigan layers are the perfect combination to overcome the warm September weather and the cool, air conditioned classrooms. The mom jeans and high end accessories help create a casual look that is still stylish and put together.

Inspiration Tuesday: Blush Duster

I love combining bodycon dresses with matching duster jackets. This is the perfect end-of-Summer outfit, great for transitioning into the cooler temperatures of Fall. Moreover, this light pink tone is one of the main colours in the Fall 2018 colour palette! To complete the look, I paired it with nude accessories to keep the focal point on the dress and duster combination. Wearing nude sandals helps to elongate the leg, since it gives the illusion that the shoes are just a continuation of the body. I finished the outfit with a delicate necklace to create a romantic and feminine vibe.

Inspiration Tuesday: Black, White & Pink Athletic

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

I love wearing athletic clothes to run errands and for those lazy days around the house. Of course being a pink kind of girl, I added those colourful accents to personalize this outfit.  I actually wear a similar outfit very frequently, as seen below. I did use the same hat for both pictures today. Be sure to use my promo code, LILYBELF20 for 20% off your next Halifornia purchase!

Inspiration Tuesday: Summer Nights in Blush

inspiration tuesday: summer nights in blush

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

I have recently found this bag in another blogger’s outfit posts and absolutely LOVE IT! I was really inspired to incorporate it into an outfit. Also, I have been wearing a lot of sweaters recently due to lots of freezing AC and cooler summer nights. Thus, I combined my ideas and generated the above outfit! I love v-neck sweaters as they can be alternatively worn over one shoulder just to give a little something extra to the outfit. I would style this one tucked into the front of the jeans with the messenger bag worn across the body.

I found this dress while doing some online shopping for new summer dresses and instantly fell in love! The colour is so vibrant and emanates a hot and breezy tropical summer night.

Inspiration tuesday: lace elegance

1 | 2 | 3 | 4

This outfit oozes femininity and elegance! I love the lace overlay on the pencil skirt and the bow and ruffle details on the blouse! This look can be worn to the office, to a cocktail party, or for an fancy night out. The nude colour for accessories helps bring out the navy and white contrast. Furthermore, the use of nude shoes helps to give the illusion on longer legs, thus is overall slimming.

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!

This outfit features three common neutral colours: navy blue, white, and nude. Even though this combination may seem simple, this look has a certain flare and embellishment, due to the pleated ruffles and bows found on the blouse. The waistband tie detailing also adds to the romantic tone of this ensemble.

Inspiration Tuesday- Rose

Screen Shot 2018-01-14 at 8.46.05 PM1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

This look is all about playing up wardrobe basics. We are using a basic white t-shirt, black skinny jeans, nude patent pumps, and a black structured bag, all of which are found in almost all closets. For this particular look, I would wear the t-shirt in a half-tuck. The focal item of this outfit is the blazer; giving a twist to an ordinary workwear item with a pop of colour and an amusing cut.
