Shop this look: RW&Co paperboy pants (out of season; similar here) | Dynamite lace bodysuit (oos; similar here) | Nine West heels (on sale!) | Ava & Aiden rings (similar here) | Aldo bag (oos; similar here)

A dressy yet casual way of styling a neutral-coloured pair of paperboy pants. I think this outfit is perfect during Summer for a dinner or a night out with friends. Alternatively, these pants can be styled with more conservative clothing for a business casual office look. I decided to keep the outfit relatively simple with not much accessorizing or variation in colours and to put the emphasis and focus on the shiny and jewelled snake bracelet. I like how it serves the same purpose as a typical gold bracelet, yet is so much more bold and definitely adds personality to the overall look.

Life update: I am keeping busy at work teaching leadership courses and guarding full-time down at the beach. I am very happy to be spending most of my time outdoors and to be getting lots of sun! If you have seen my IG stories lately, you know that the tan line game is real haha. #lifeguardproblems

Other than that, I am looking forward to my last year of my undergraduate degree. As much as I believe that school is important, I cannot wait to graduate this coming Spring! I am also looking at purchasing a new phone and my first car within the year, so be prepared for even more budgeting tips as my budget just got tighter….In all honesty, it is difficult being on a tight budget and paying for school out of pocket as I go through it. It may not seem like it right now, but the benefits for sure outweigh the cons. I will be graduating debt-free, which is such a big accomplishment in itself, but I have also learned so much about  managing my money appropriately and I have gained a new found appreciation for the value of money.

Have a lovely weekend, xox

Shop this look: Dynamite blouse (out of season; similar here) | Dynamite shorts (oos; similar here) | Aldo shoes (oos; similar here) | Aldo bag (oos; similar here) | Ava & Aiden rings (similar here) | Leopard print bracelet

A bright and colourful look to take on the Summer heat! Spice up your wardrobe with a hot pink blouse, or any colour of your choice, and be up to date with 2019’s neon fashion trend. Instead of purchasing something that will be out of style later and that you will not be able to reuse, try finding something that suits your body type, personal style and personality and that you will be able to mix with many items in your current wardrobe.

As much as I like more of a classic wardrobe with neutral tones, I find myself drawn to very saturated colours for the Summer. It makes me think of the Amalfi coast, with its vivid azure ocean and magenta-coloured flowers found throughout the towns.

A light and airy look perfect for the brighter and warmer days of Spring! By using neutral-coloured basics as the core of the look, it is easy to vary the outfit by using different jackets/blazers and accessories. This season, I am totally loving wearing my white lace bodysuit paired with my white denim jeans; they are definitely on repeat and will be seen quite often. All I have to do is interchange certain pieces, my shoes, and my handbag to get a whole new outfit.

Being a university student with a VERY limited budget, I cannot afford to continually buy new things or to make a new purchase when something else is on trend. By purchasing neutral and basic pieces, I can make many more different outfits with a smaller amount of clothes. Definitely looking at quality and structure of the garment helps to keep clothing longer and helps to elevate your personal style and elegance. As much as fast fashion is very tempting, it ends up costing you more long-term.

Such a feminine outfit for Spring! This tweed jacket is new and I am so excited to wear it! Styled with soft and delicate tones and dainty jewelry, this look is very elegant. Alternatively, this ensemble can be dressed up or down with different shoes, bags, and accessories. For a more casual look, one could wear white sneakers with a tote bag or small leather backpack.

I ordered this blouse sometime this year after seeing Sophie Shohet wearing it in one of her youtube videos. It is such an elegant blouse and I love the gold and pearl detailing on the collar. It is a classic cut yet is unique in its details. This piece can be dressed up or dressed down, whether it is for a dressy, casual, or business look.

That being said, I am definitely feeling the blush and white vibes this Spring, as seen with all the other blush and white outfits that are to come, and I hope you are too! Until next time, xox.

I have used this tweed blazer for a couple different OOTD posts, and I keep finding new ways to style it. I definitely LOVE this blazer and it fits me like a glove! I was recently gifted a new Karl Lagerfeld Paris blazer and am excited to share it with you all! Outfit for that will be coming soon!

This outfit focuses on the play of cream and black, with white as a neutral base. These colours are of such French influence, as seen with Chanel. By using mainly neutral colours, so many different outfits can be made and each garment can be styled in various manners. As much as I love my pops of colour, I for sure appreciate a more classic and neutral-toned wardrobe. I feel like during the Summer I bring out very bright and saturated colours, which all remind me of the Amalfi coast and of numerous Italian designers (ex: Dolce & Gabbana). However, during the rest of the year, my main colours are neutral, such as black and white, which is more of the French style.

Shop this look: H&M sweater (out of season; similar here + on sale!) | RW&Co denim (oos; similar here) | Dynamite lace bodysuit | Nine West heels (on sale!) | Ava & Aiden rings (similar here)

Such a stylish and comfortable Spring outfit! I have mentioned this before, but an easy way to transition from Winter to Spring is to reuse your knitwear and to pair it with white denim. This helps to freshen, brighten and lighten your look for the warm-weather days. This outfit is comprised of basic and, individually, plain pieces. Playing around with them and styling them in alternate ways aids to bring your outfit to life, bringing it from drab to fab. Since this sweater is oversized, I like to do a front tuck and roll the sleeves; just by doing that it balances out the loose fit and adds character to the look. By wearing it off one shoulder, I can show off the lace detail of my bodysuit underneath, which adds a sexy and feminine tone to a rather boxy-looking ensemble. I finished the look with some dainty jewelry; these rings are a recent purchase and I am SO HAPPY to have bought them! I have always had very short and fat fingers, and so rings were always too tight. I found these in my size (ring size 9, eek) and I find they just tie my outfits together and really bring that element that was previously missing.

Its rather cold this Spring and so I am back to wearing knitwear. This sweater was actually borrowed from my grandmother; she is very fashionable and is always looking at the latest trends. I guess I can say that fashionistas run in the family haha. I also just bought these white heels on major sale at Saks Fifth Avenue! I have always wanted white pointed-toe heels and have had my eyes on THESE for some time now. When I saw these equally good ones on sale, I could not resist.

In terms of the outfit itself, I wanted to combine feminine aspects with an edgier vibe. The soft lilac colour and dainty jewelry add a very delicate and pretty ambiance to the outfit. However, the boxy cut of the sweater gives it a looser fit and does not define the waist and curves as much. The skinny leather pants help to balance out the looseness by hugging the legs and adding a moto or rocker look.

This outfit is perfect for April weather, using both Winter and Spring pieces. Wearing colourful knitwear is an easy and affordable way to use your winter attire in Spring  and Summer outfits. I actually purchased this sweater in last summer on major sale, following my shopping technique of buying outside of the season. You can read all about that HERE.

On another note, I have decided to change my posting schedule from Monday-Friday to Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday. Basically I am just cutting out Wednesdays.

This was my school look today; very easy to style and follows my outfit formula. Click HERE to read all about it! It is finally starting to feel like Spring and I can finally wear something other than winter boots, so I have brought out my most-worn, and SUPER comfortable, ankle booties. If you have been following me for a while, or have read some of my other OOTD posts, you know very well that I like to match my metallics and leathers. Since my booties are brown leather, I paired them with my brown leather tote and brown leather belt. All the metallics are gold-toned, as seen by my bag, belt buckle, sunglasses, and by the buttons on my blouse. Speaking of which, I have been wearing this blouse for over seven years now, and it is still going strong! It is a classic piece and with how frequently I wear it, has definitely paid off.

On a side note, I am in the homestretch of my third year at university, with finals coming up in the next few weeks. I apologize in advance if the amount of content I publish will diminish, but rest assured, it is only temporary until school is less of a rush. I have 13 assignments due in a 14-day period. Wish me luck.

A stylish yet casual look perfect for school or running errands. This outfit focuses on being able to take basic pieces that can be found in almost all wardrobes, and styling them with luxurious accessories. You can usually find your typical black pants+tee+denim jacket outfit almost everywhere, but here I have glamourized it for a more high-street fashion look. Using real jewelry and designer accessories such as a Chanel brooch, luxurious leather bag, and black heels can really take your outfit to the next level.

Loving this all pink & black look! It is feminine, edgy, and perfect for cold weather, all at once! This sweater is actually retailed as an over-the-shoulder sweater (as seen HERE), however I like to also wear it as a cowl-neck sweater. It is a great money-saving trick I use; I basically get two sweaters for the cost of one. Alternatively, this outfit can be recreated in a similar way with other colour combinations, once again using black as a neutral backdrop with coordinated accents of colour in the top and accessories.

OOTD: Edgy Blazer

Shop this look: Keneth Cole NY blazer (out of season; similar here) | Halifornia shirt (use code LILYBELF20 for 20% off!) | Chanel Fall 2017 limited edition bag | Dynamite leather pants (oos; similar here + on sale!) | Melanie Lyne screw and crystal bracelet (oos; similar here) | Guess crystal hinged rhinestone bracelet | Guess twisted magnetic bracelet | Converse sneakers (oos; similar here)

This outfit is really easy to style, using basic pieces found in most wardrobes: white sneakers, black skinny pants, white graphic tee, neutral blazer, and a black leather shoulder bag. Even though each item has its own individual style, putting them together creates a unique and fashionable look. The leather pants give off an edgy rocker character, the white sneakers are more hipster, the blazer creates a business look, and the black leather Chanel shoulder bag gives it classiness and elegance.

This is the type of outfit I wear to school most often; it is neither too fancy nor too basic. It is the perfect balance for that stylishly easy look. Moreover, it is the kind of outfit that can be worn almost year-round! As I am writing this post, it is currently -22 degrees Celsius, so I am gearing more towards a winter jacket, boots, a hat, and mittens.  Brrr! It is so cold, but at least we got some great snowfall! Ideal weather for hitting the slopes! That aside, it is the perfect outfit for Fall, during those cold-morning, hot afternoon days, and is great for transitioning from Winter to Spring.

Happy Monday loves ❤

Shop this look: Karl Lagerfeld tweed blazer | Dynamite lace bodysuit (on sale!) | Dynamite pants (oos; similar here + on sale!) | Sam Edelman heels | Chanel 2017 Limited Edition bag | Chanel sunglasses

This look is simple and classy, yet subtle. Using classic pieces, this outfit is easy to recreate with alternative styles of tweed jackets and classic leather handbags. The luxury lies in the details: the gold buttons, the shimmer thread occasionally woven through the tweed material, and the coordinated colour palette of black and cream.

This outfit is your typical street-style office wear look. A white blouse slightly tucked into skinny black pants and black stiletto heels, with a top knot to finish the look. A classic blouse paired with the leather pants is one of my favourite looks, and I have been sporting this so much recently, as it blends classic and feminine style with an edgier look. I especially like this silk blouse, as it is made from natural fibers (thus is not static and glides over my skin) and it is not see through. When purchasing this however, the sizing guide is very confusing and inaccurate, as with the size the models are wearing. I found that if you are bigger in the bust and shoulder areas, definitely size up. In my case, I usually purchase size medium for tops, however I ended up sizing up to a large.

For a more festive outfit, I would let my hair down in curls, and swap out the bag and jewelry for a glittery clutch and bold jewelry. Something along the lines of chunky black earrings and a huge fashionable gemstone ring.

This is something I would also wear for school, but would dress it down to make it more casual. I would wear white sneakers instead of heels and a black leather tote rather than the shoulder bag so that I am able to carry my MacBook and all my other school supplies.

Last week I shared an OOTD with the same sparkly gold sweater as a festive look to celebrate NYE! Another way to style it is with leather pants, which meld glam and edge to get a fancy look that is full of character! This outfit focuses on just black and gold, with no other variations in tone. Paired with bold accessories, such as black chandelier earrings, a black leather Versace-inspired bag, and black leather heels, this look is will make you want to get your party on!

OOTD: Shimmery Blue for Christmas

Shop this look: Peter Nygard Collection blouse (oos; similar here) | Dynamite pants (oos; similar here + on sale!) | Guess bracelet | Sam Edelman heels | Costco pearl necklace

This look is very elegant and glamorous for Christmas, without being in-your-face or tacky. I love the combination of the feminine blouse with the edgier leather pants; it creates a good balance between the two. Not overly sweet but not completely rocker either. Styled with a nice pair of black high heels and a pearl necklace, this outfit is perfect for Christmas parties with the family, midnight mass (worn with a black coat), or even work parties.

OOTD: Edgy Red

Shop this look: Hilary Radley blouse (oos; similar here + 50% off!) | Dynamite pants (oos; similar here) | H&M booties (oos; similar here) | Danier bag (oos; similar here) | Melanie Lyne bracelet (oos; similar here)

I am loving the combination of red and leather details in this outfit! Since we are nearing Christmas, it gives off a festive vibe, and can be worn for the office with black dress pants or tucked into a pencil skirt. Alternatively, it can be paired with a black party skirt for other holiday occasions. An easy trick for making your style more festive is to wear a bold coloured blouse (such as royal blue or red) combined with dressy pants or a dressy skirt, black heels, and some bling (ex: on a clutch or jewelry).

Instead of wearing traditional black pants, I opted for a pair with gold zippers and a leather waistband. This really makes them stand out from your typical black dress pants, and adds a moto-chic, edgy vibe to your overall outfit. These could also be worn with other colour blouses or knitwear during the Fall, or a plain white tee tucked in for the Spring.

OOTD: Luxurious Black

Shop this look: Zara blazer | Calvin Klein Jeans jeggings (oos; similar here) | Karl Lagerfeld Paris silk scarf | Fall 2017 Chanel bag | Lauren by Ralph Lauren belt | Dynamite lace bodysuit (on sale!) | Melanie Lyne bracelet (oos; similar here)

This outfit is focused on using basic pieces all in black to create a neutral backdrop for luxurious details. It is accessorized with high quality items, such as a Chanel bag, a Karl Lagerfeld silk scarf, and a Lauren by Ralph Lauren leather belt. This is the easiest method for getting a luxurious and elegant style; basic pieces + designer accessories. By creating the base of the outfit with basic pieces, your budget is optimized because they are typically inexpensive and you can purchased only a few items and restyle them in so many ways. Basic clothing items in neutral colours can be mixed and matched to make an infinite number of different outfits, that can be repeated numerous times by changing the accessories for different looks. By using high-end or designer bags, belts, scarves, jewelry, and shoes, your bring quality and luxury to any basic outfit.

Furthermore, just a quick life update. I am in the last week of my university session, and nearing final exams. I am super busy with assignments, evaluations, and studying, so I apologize if the amount of content has been lacking a bit or will temporarily be less frequent.

Shop this look: Dynamite top (oos; similar here) | RW&Co denim (on sale!) | Calvin Klein Cindy tote | Guess belt (oos; different colour here) | Melanie Lyne nail bracelet

This outfit is great for the transitional weather from Summer to Fall. It can also be worn with a cardigan for added warmth. I kept the overall look really simple, keeping the focal point on the leather appliqué of my top. I really like the subtle edginess and moto vibes it adds to the outfit.

Moreover, just a quick life update. I am in university, starting my third year of a Bachelors of Commerce, majoring in marketing. Most of my time is spent studying, especially with midterms coming up very soon. If not studying or at school, I am at work, clocking in approximately 25 hours per week. It is a lot to take on, but I pride myself in good time management. Also, I do not really have a social life, so there’s that haha. My goal is to graduate debt-free!!! It is hard work, but I think it is definitely worth it! I find prioritizing my time and energy and sticking to my schedule and study plan are necessary to be able to succeed.

I am LOVING my new off-the-shoulder top! I have always wanted a black and white gingham blouse, and I have finally found the one, and it fits me perfectly! I honestly could not be happier! I carried the monochrome colours throughout the whole outfit, using white denim to make the blouse the focal point. Accented with gold jewelry, this outfit oozes stylish sophistication and glamour. I finalized this look with a black leather shoulder and black leather pumps. These Sam Edelman heels are SUPER comfortable, probably the comfiest heels I have ever worn. They come in numerous colours and are a very worthwhile purchase.

Enjoy the sunny weather dears!

Happy Monday! I am starting off the week by sharing this outfit that I wore out to dinner a while back. I am absolutely loving the blush and rose gold tones of the look. Especially paired with the white denim, the colours really are more accentuated! I prefer wearing white denim more so than dark blue or black during the Spring/Summer since it makes the outfit light and airy and also makes a nice contrast to the brighter colours of my blouses and accessories. For this particular look, the focal point was definitely the blush accents, where as the rest of the outfit is monochromatic.

Moreover, I find accessories can really give a completed look to any outfit. It can be as simple as a silk scarf or stylish earrings. I especially love wearing a watch, as to create a sleek and smart look. They are so versatile and the different combinations of wristbands, dials, colours, and materials are endless! Recently, Riverdean reached out to me to partner with them, and I had not heard of them prior, but was excited to try out some of their products. I could not agree more with their philosophy: innovation fuelled with hard work and passion. It quickly fell in love with their watches, and now incorporate them in my daily outfits. With this partnership, I was given a discount code for my followers. Use promo code LILY20 for 20% off your next Riverdean purchase!

 

Until next time, xox!

Major 80s vibe with the denim on denim! I dressed up this look with a black blouse with leather appliqué. It is subtle yet brings it all together really nicely! This outfit can also be worn in a very casual manner, by simply swapping out the blouse for a tee or tank top. For shoes and accessories, I would pair it with a black leather cross body bag (ex: here & here) and black ankle booties (ex: here & here). For a more laid back look, I would wear white sneakers (definitely my go-to comfy shoes!).

Have an amazing day filled with sunshine!

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:
