Shop this look: Karl Lagerfeld Paris blouse (out of season; similar here) | Kensie denim (similar here) | Karl Lagerfeld Paris bag (oos; similar here) | Coach loafers (oos; similar here+ on sale!) | Melanie Lyne bracelet | Guess twisted metal cuff (David Yurman dupe!) | Ava & Aiden rings (similar here) | Gold bracelet & earring set from Spain

A classically-styled outfit perfect for Summer! Elegantly fashioned in all white and accessorized with black tones. This look is very Parisian-inspired and is a dressed-down version of what could be worn to the office; the blouse could be worn tucked into a black pencil skirt or the loafers could be worn as an alternative to heels.

I just wanted to say a few words in the memory of Karl Lagerfeld. He has been one of my favourite designers and I have always loved his pieces. He was such a fabulous source of inspiration and has brought so much to the world of fashion. May he rest in peace.

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!

I love the mix of high-end and athletic this outfit presents. When I first got this jacket, I never thought to style it in such a casual manner. After I got thinking, I wanted to experiment and see, and I really love the resulting look. It is super stylish but relaxed enough to actually get things done in the day. This could also be a great look for travel. Moreover, I love wearing baseball caps and I really appreciate how I can incorporate them into a chic outfit such as this.

Have a lovely weekend!

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.

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.

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.

OOTD: Brown Leather Details

Shop this look: Dynamite blouse (out of season; similar here) | Kensie jeans (oos) | Michael Kors bag (oos; other colours) | Guess belt | Aldo booties (oos; other colours) | Walmart sunglasses

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.

A sweet look to warm up your winter days. It has been cold lately, and I cannot wait for Spring and the warmer weather it brings. This look is really easy to recreate and can be worn with any style and colour of knit sweater combined with black leggings. It is hard to see in the pictures, however these leggings actually have diagonal seams running along the legs. It gives it a moto style, making the outfit edgier and balances out the sweetness of all the pink tones.

Also, I just want to apologize for my lack of content last week. It was my school reading week (basically my spring break) and decided to take time off of blogging to focus on work.

My Favourite Shopping App!

Hello dears! Before we get started with today’s post, I just wanted to apologize for the lack of content recently. I have been SUPER busy with midterms, work, and just life in general. More to come about that later.

For the past couple of months, I have been using the Shoptagr program on my browser. It is a browser application with which you save items (basically a massive wishlist!). It organizes your products, and notifies you when they goes on sale, are about to sell out, or are back in stock. Moreover, they provide you with coupon codes that are not widely known to the public! I used to bookmark items in a wishlist folder, and would have to manually check every couple of days for sales. Using Shoptagr saves me so much time in my busy life, and is so much more convenient and efficient.

Here’s a sneak peak to a few of my wishlist items.

OOTD: Denim & Leather

Shop this look: Calvin Klein Jeans denim jacket (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 bracelet | Sam Edelman heels

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.

OOTD: Pink

Shop this look: Le Château sweater (on sale!) | Dynamite leather pants (out of season; similar here + on sale!) | Lady Hathaway coat (oos; similar here) | Danier bag (oos; similar here) | H&M booties (oos; similar here) | Guess bracelet

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.

Fashion

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 ❤

OOTD: Black & White Business

Shop this look: Lily Silk blouse | Dynamite pants (oos; similar here + on sale!) | Chanel Fall 2017 limited edition bag | Sam Edelman heels | Costco diamond heart necklace | Costco akoya pearl studs | Guess bracelet | Melanie Lyne hinge bangle bracelet (oos; similar here)

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.

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.

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: Cable Knit + Button Down

Shop this look: Tommy Hilfiger shirt (sold exclusively at Costco; similar here) | Zara button down | Kensie jeans (oos; similar here) | Guess belt (different colour here) | Aldo bag (oos; similar here) | Chanel brooch | pearl earrings

I am loving this look for Fall! It is so preppy and put together, yet can be so casually styled, as seen above with a basic pair of skinny jeans. Conversely, this look could be worn with dress pants or a pencil skirt for a business-style outfit appropriate for the office. I paired this ensemble with pearl accents, as seen by the Chanel brooch, ring, and earrings. Lastly, I decided to wear my burgundy tote, as to give a pop of autumnal colour. In addition, this look is very easy to recreate. Essentially, you could wear any colour cable knit sweater over any colour button down, paired with any bag. The combinations are endless! Let your inner fashionista shine through!

OOTD: Neutral Knit

Shop this look: H&M sweater (oos; very similar here) | Calvin Klein Jeans jeggings (oos; similar here) | Calvin Klein Cindy Tote | Guess belt (different colour here) | Melanie Lyne nail bracelet | XOXO 5th Avenue boots (use code NYCREP for 10% off + free shipping!)

I love this look for Fall, and how I can play with black and beige tones! This oversized knit sweater is perfect for the cooler weather, and is super comfortable! I like to wear it over the shoulder, with rolled-up sleeves and a front tuck just to give it a bit more structure. I explained in an earlier post HERE how to wear oversized clothing so that it looks intentional and not that you are wearing the wrong size of clothing.

Moreover, this was my first time wearing my new booties! They look super cute, especially with the faux fur lining. In all honesty though, they are not the best quality. They are just an inexpensive pair of booties that are fun and look good for now. They are definitely not an investment piece, something I would really spend money on to get quality that will last me a long time.

Happy Monday:)

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 love wearing blazers for Fall! They are the perfect layering item and are so versatile! They are also great for transitioning an office-type outfit for an evening or after-hours look. I decided to wear white denim to make the pink and navy colours stand out more, two colours that compliment each other very well. Even though I wore this outfit for school, it can easily be worn for a business-casual environment as well, such as an office (if such workplace permits business-casual attire).

I purchased this sweater this summer, and was very excited to wear it for the first time last week at school! I decided to pair it with my black jeggings, which I absolutely love! Unlike black denim, that tends to wash out really quick, these do not fade. Moreover, they feel like leggings, but look like jeans, with belts loops and back pockets!

If you have seen most of my other OOTD posts, you will notice I almost always wear gold hardware. However, I decided to opt for silver metallics, as I thought it completed the cool undertones of the sweater. Also, the face of my watch matched the pink colour, so I figured, why not haha! I finished this look with my favourite brown booties (I swear I wear these everyday  throughout Fall and Spring), and my brown leather tote. The bag is still available for purchase, but the colour “luggage” is not longer available 😦 There are multiple other options though, ranging from maroon, to blush, to black, as seen in the link above.

Have a nice week, xox

Shop this look: RW&Co blouse (oos; find similar here) | Guess belt (oos; find similar here) | Kensie jeans (oos; find similar here) | Michael Kors tote bag in colour luggage | pearl earrings

This is probably one of my favourite outfit combinations! It is simple, yet the cold-shoulder cut and ruffles of the blouse in addition to the leopard print belt make it bold. Also, I am absolutely in LOVE with this blouse! Definitely a best-loved in my wardrobe! It can be worn in numerous styles, such as romantic, edgy, and even business. It is not shown in the pictures, but I wore brown leather lace up booties to complete the look, as seen below.

Shop this look: Aldo booties (on sale now!!!)

I wore these booties almost everyday in Fall 2016 and Fall 2017 and they are still holding strong. They are SUPER comfortable, and the heel is not too high, so they are still practical for walking around campus.

Have a nice rest of your week:)

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:

Alternatively, during warmer days, I will wear shorts instead of jeans. Still makes for great outfits!

Although there are numerous different outfits, there are not that many individual pieces; they are just reused a lot in different outfit combinations. So many more combinations can be made with these items of clothing; the possibilities are endless!
