I am loving how casual, yet chic this outfit is! Using a pair of jeans and white sneakers is definitely the way to go when dressing down a blouse or a more attention-grabbing top. I would totally wear this for travelling or even for a day at school. It is functional and comfortable yet is still super stylish!

Happy Monday!

Shop this look: Kirkland Signature white tee | Zara leggings (out of season; similar here) | Zara bag | Melanie Lyne bracelet | Aldo medallion (oos; similar here) | Swarovski studs | Ava & Aiden rings (similar here) | Converse sneakers (oos; similar here)

A very casual and comfortable athleisure look. Perfect for running errands, going to the gym, or just wanting to have a relaxed day at home. I like taking these active-looking outfits and sprucing them up with jewelry and a nice bag to make them a bit more glamorous and feminine.

The day I shot this outfit, I also talked about men’s tees on my IG stories. Just to recap that conversation, men’s shirts are a lot better quality, with a thicker material that is not see-through and does not stretch, for a way better price! The one I am wearing comes in a pack of four for $20 at Costco! That comes to $5 a piece, which is an AMAZING deal!

Quick life update: I apologize for not being so active on my blog or IG lately; I have been SUPER busy!!! I have officially left the nest and spread my wings. After a lot of back and forth and after finding time between shifts, I have FINALLY moved into my very first apartment! There is still much to do, boxes to unpack, and things to buy however it is progressing bit by bit. It is a pretty big adjustment, however I am excited to be completely settled in!

I have always loved leopard print and I finally have a blouse in this print! I was so excited to finally be able to wear it! Styling this blouse with white denim brightens the overall outfit and lightens the look for Spring. Alternatively, I would wear this blouse with white or blue denim shorts in the Summer, and a black skirt or pants for the Fall and Winter.

Happy Monday, xox

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.

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.

Happy Easter Monday, xox

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.

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.
