This orange tone is super on-trend at the moment and makes for such a rich and saturated colour for the Summer! Accessorized with gold-toned pieces, this look is high quality with designer items, such as the Chanel bag and Christian Louboutin heels. Moreover, it is made fun with statement fashion jewelry that is cute and affordable!

Zara Spring Favourites

Spring will be upon us soon and so will the warmer and sunnier days. It is time to put the coats and boots away and to bring out bright and light clothing! Even though I will not be going out and buying these items, it is still nice to browse and to see which trends are more prominent for this new season. Below, I am sharing my favourite Spring pieces from Zara.

Image 1 of TUXEDO JACKET from Zara

Tuxedo Jacket

I would style this with denim shorts, heels, and a lace cami bodysuit or a band tee for a more casual look.

Dark Khaki Duster Coat

Style with white denim and white heels, or light-coloured trousers and wedges for an airy yet sophisticated look.

Image 1 of LINGERIE-STYLE TOP from Zara

Lingerie-Style Top in white

Definitely an essential piece to any wardrobe. Very versatile for numerous outfit combinations and occasions!

Shirt With Pockets in pink

Pink- and coral-coloured blouses are probably my favourite items to wear during the Spring. Brighter and more saturated colours bring out one’s skin tone in a lively manner. My favourite way to style a top such as this is with white denim, to really bring out the colour.

Image 6 of BUTTONED BLAZER from Zara

Buttoned Blazer in pink

Definitely love pink blazers, considering I own a pink blazer and it is one of my most worn pieces for Spring. Can be worn casually with a white tee and denim shorts, or as a set for the office.

Halter Top Dress

I love wearing bold-coloured maxi dresses, especially for late-night dinners during the Summer or for tropical vacations.

Image 2 of STRIPED PRINTED SHIRT from Zara

Striped Printed Shirt

Major nautical vibe with this shirt! Style with white skinny jeans and heels, white loose trousers and wedges, or even white cotton shorts and sandals. The white bottoms help make the blue of the shirt more saturated and more appealing to the eyes.

Nothing gets you ready for Summer like a cute bathing suit!

Welcome back! I have decided to introduce a new mini-series to my blog: the Timeless Capsule Wardrobe. It has been a long-time coming, so I am excited to finally be sharing it with you all.

As you know, I am currently in university and am living the life of a broke student 😦 My reality involves working 30+ hour weeks to be able to pay for school out-of-pocket as I go. My goal is to avoid student loans in order to graduate debt-free. It is doable, however it is challenging and takes great discipline in order to maintain a tight budget.

Unfortunately, as much as I love fashion and beauty, I do not have the funds to afford all the luxuries that I desire. Therefore, when shopping, my philosophy is putting more money towards one item with high quality that I know will last me a long time. I am not a fan of fast-fashion; buying multiple cheap clothing items of low quality that do not last long. You might get a couple of wears out of them before having to purchase a whole new item once again. This shopping mentality not only exhausts your money, but also your time. Time that could be spent at your job working and making more money (increasing your cash inflow), instead of spending more money (increasing your cash outflow).

With that in mind, I have chosen a few items that I find every wardrobe needs, but that create a variety of timeless outfits. The whole point of a capsule wardrobe is to exploit as many different outfit combinations with a select number of clothing items. The trick is to buy neutral pieces that can alternate well with each other.

Every week, I will be posting a continuation of this series, focusing on a certain type of clothing item. First one to come will be about coats, jackets, and blazers. Stay tuned!

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching, and between turkey diners and numerous family gatherings, it can be challenging trying to find that perfect outfit. Below I have shared with you three easy outfit ideas that are great for this autumn holiday.

IMG_3439

One can never go wrong with a little black dress. I especially love the bell sleeves on this one, which is a major fashion trend this fall. I paired this dress with a pearl necklace, however it can effortlessly be dressed up or down with your preferred accessories.

Shop this look: here (it is on sale right now!)

I absolutely adore this dress for autumn! The colour is a rich burgundy that brings out the gold in my hair and reminds me of red leaves falling from the trees, littering the sidewalks.

Shop this look: dress (50% off now!)

IMG_3166

I really love this dress for the holidays, whether it be Thanksgiving or Christmas (which is less than three months away!!!). This rich purple tone brings warmth and liveliness to this dress. Again, the bell sleeves make an appearance and truly add detail to this look.

Shop this look: dress

I hope these outfit ideas were helpful and I wish you all a safe Thanksgiving holiday filled with love and joy!
