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. Wish me luck.

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!

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.
