Lately, I’ve been really into suede everything. From suede booties to moto jackets and even little suede skirts. I just feel like suede is such a cold weather item and adds so much texture and warmth to a look! This little purple suede skirt has been everything since I received it a few weeks ago!

When searching for a new skirt I mainly focus on a few things. First, I want a skirt that is going to fit and flatter me perfectly. Second, I look for detailing to add some character. And lastly, I look at price and wearability (I want to get maximum wear out of it!). So when I was browsing Missguided’s sale page and saw this number I just knew it was meant to be!

And can we talk about the detail in this skirt? I can’t get over the gold zipper and the front slit! These details really add so much character and make this skirt a unique piece to own. I also love how flattering this skirt is. It’s naturally built with a little shape which gives me the hips I don’t have! I paired it with my most fave bodysuit (literally wear this with everything) and my new Coconut by Matisse booties that I snagged from Nordstrom rack.

Off topic from the post but these booties are also such a steal! They are so comfortable and are the perfect tan bootie. I think these booties just made it on my everyday shoe rotation!

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll see how much I’ve been loving the mild weather here in Toronto! Like, reeeeally loving the weather. So much so I’ve left my home without a Winter jacket multiple times! Now I’m not crazy and still wear a sweater or a light jacket outside. And I’ve been really into this fuzzy sweater trend that’s been all the rage this Winter. It’s chic, stylish and obviously warm!

Honestly, when I first pulled this out of my closet I was a little worried to wear it. It’s a short and wide cut, which can be an unflattering fit for me. I have a short upper body and no hips so boxy can equal major fashion disaster. But, I decided to give this fuzzy sweater one more go before writing it off completely!

I paired this fuzzy sweater with a flowy boho blouse to add texture and a touch of sheerness to the look. It helps distract the eye from the boxy shoulders and create more detail in the outfit. Adding a pair of high heel booties help create length and elongate my whole body. Overall, I think this fuzzy sweater is a keeper and will be making it’s weekly rotation in my closet!

Whats your favourite way to style your fuzzy sweater?

It’s Monday! And to start the week off right I decided to share a MAJOR style steal! Like, really major. So if you live in a cold climate and are looking to score a new jacket that is warm and stylish, then I gotchu’ with this under $60 winter coat.

So first off, I have been on the longest search looking for a longline coat or a trench coat. Ideally I wanted a camel jacket or a light grey one. And obviously I didn’t want to spend too much (I was really looking for under $100). Realistically, jackets are one of those items that you should probably splurge on. They are an investment that needs to fit correctly and to be warm, obvious right? I tried on so many jackets from Forever 21 that were between $50 to $60 dollars but they honestly had the worst fit.

Now don’t get me wrong. I love this jacket from Forever 21 here. But let’s be real, Forever 21 can be a hit or miss when it comes to fit! So, after much online searching and many abandoned carts I finally found the one!

And can we just talk about the price on this jacket?It’s only $54.00 (reduced from $108.00). How amazing is that! And after actually receiving this coat and wearing it I can totally vouch for the quality and warmth. The best part is it literally goes with every single thing in my closet. It fits true to size but size up if you want to layer underneath.

Happy #friyay! Today I’m sharing a really quick and easy date night outfit for under $100 in honor of Friday night date night.

My hubby and I go on date night every week, it’s really rare that we ever miss a date. We have been together for 9 years (married for 2 of those 9) and I still love to dress up for him. Corny, but true. I really like to mix casual pieces into my date night look to make it more practical and comfortable. And since our date nights usually revolve around eating (huge foodie here!), wearing something comfortable always helps when I “accidentally” over-indulge! 🙂

If you saw my last post you would know how I am for mixing Summer pieces into my Winter wardrobe (you can read my tips about that here). This look was no exception and this Charlotte Russe skirt was a piece that I bought last Summer. I love pairing last season items with current season trends. It’s such an easy way to create a different outfit over and over again.

Anyway, to finish off this look and to add a bit of comfort I paired this skirt with my Dynamite off-the-shoulder choker top. And my all time favorite thigh high boots! Both skirt and top are on sale right now! (I’ve linked them below and above)

As a self-proclaimed shopping addict, learning to control my spending habit is key. I could easily spend $500 shopping at my fave online retailer within 10 minutes, if paying my mortgage and buying groceries weren’t necessary. I’ve obviously had to learn self-control and learn to mix and my match my wardrobe endlessly to create different looks. I honestly have such a hard time trying to create a variety of looks. Because of that, I’ve really had to learn to play with colours, textures and even incorporating previous season pieces to achieve endless options. So inspired by my above look I’ve decided to share my go-to steps on how to incorporate your Summer pieces into your Winter wardrobe!:

1. PICK A WHITE OR NEUTRAL PIECE

As you probably know, each season has it’s own colour palette. Spring and Summer colours tend to be light, such as pastels, and will be a little off trend to incorporate into Winter. Plus, I don’t know many people who want to wear mint in the Winter! The easiest way to incorporate any Summer piece, whether it’s your fave dress, skirt or shirt, is to stick to white or neutrals.

2. ADD A LITTLE BIT OF CHUNK

The best way to pull together a cold season look is to add something chunky. I choose to wear a super chunky and long white sweater underneath my jean jacket. It instantly takes it from Summer chic to Winter warmth. Chunk is always key. And it doesn’t only have to be a sweater. You can pair a Summer dress under a thick wool coat or a long cozy cardigan!

3. ACCESSORIZE WITH WINTER ACCESSORIES

The easiest way to really take your Summer pieces into Winter glam is to add accessories. Now, I didn’t accessorize above because it was a whooping 4 degrees celsius (which is a really mild day for Toronto in January) and Winter accessories weren’t needed. But, if it was cooler I would have thrown on a big leopard print scarf or some faux fur. Think cozy and warm for your accessories. And if you were wondering if I was cold wearing this outfit in 4 degree celsius weather, the answer is no! It get’s waaaaay colder here, which makes 4 degrees celsius feel warm! (sad but true!)

4.  GIVE IT SOME BOOTIE

No Winter look is complete without a cute pair of boots. To really transition your Summer pieces into your Winter wardrobe, be sure to throw on a pair of boots or booties. Nothing completes a cold weather look better then a pair of suede or leather booties. Not only do they add warmth to the entire look, but are obviously a #winteressential!

Hope you enjoyed reading my process on how to incorporate your Summer pieces into your Winter wardrobe!! If you have any tips to add, let me know below!

Todays blog post is about building a versatile wardrobe on a small budget. Which, in my opinion, can be very hard to do. Especially when your a huge fan of fashion and want. it. all! Quite honestly, it took me a while to get a hang on building a wardrobe that was small but versatile. I’m sure I’m not alone when I wish I could have endless amounts of cash to buy designer items and luxe goods. But the reality is that a great wardrobe doesn’t come down to cost, but to style and knowing what pieces will go a loooong way!

 

My 3 Tips on How to Build a Versatile Wardrobe on a Budget:

 

1. Choose a colour palette and stick with it!

This tip is a great starting point if you don’t know where to start. First, think of your favourite colours or colours you tend to gravitate to in your wardrobe. Now narrow it down to 3 or 4 colours. For example, my colours are black, grey, tan and white. Now mine are pretty much all neutrals which obviously makes it really versatile to begin with, since all neutrals work together easily. But if you have some colours in your palette (such as red, pink or yellow) then be sure to have at least 1 or 2 of your colours neutral. For example, if your colours are pink and red try adding in white and black so you can mix and match your wardrobe.

The reason why choosing a colour palette for your wardrobe is essential for a small budget is so you can create endless outfits with the same pieces over and over again. When you have multiple colours and patterns and a small wardrobe it makes it difficult to curate different outfits on a daily basis.

2. Make basics your best friend, and learn to layer!

Your secret weapon for a budget friendly wardrobe is a few good basics. I’m not only talking t-shirts and long sleeve shirts, but basic dresses (think t-shirt dresses and solid colour dresses here!). Basics are great for so many reasons but mainly because you can wear them on repeat with everything. Most girls go-to for styling basics are layering t-shirts under a blazer or tucking them into a good pair of denim, which are all great choices for styling, but, make layering your best friend. Layer vests over long sleeve tops and skirts. Moto jackets over t-shirts and denim. And layer cardigans over dresses.

Once you combine your colour palette with your basics and layering techniques you will have already created so many more outfits then you thought possible!

3. Splurge on classics, save on trends (an oldie but a goodie!)

You’ve probably heard this 1000x before but this really is the best advice you’ll ever hear! Think of timeless pieces as in investment. A good wardrobe always has a few classic pieces that go season-to-season and year-to-year. That means splurge on a good pair of black pumps, a black blazer and that wool coat you’ve been eyeing. You can’t ever go wrong with these these pieces. For your trendier stuff hit up Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe, keep it cheap since it’s trendy and will probably go out of style soon.

Versatility is not always about quantity but having great pieces that transition from look to look effortlessly!

These 3 tips on how to build a versatile wardrobe on a budget are my go-to’s when transitioning my wardrobe for a new season! What are some of your tips and tricks?

As a self pro-claimed sunglass addict, I truly believe a girl can never have too many pairs of sunnies on rotation. I have a lot of people ask me where to buy cheap sunglasses. As someone who pretty much wears sunnies everyday not only for UV protection but for style I know that shades can really add up! Plus, whats more fun then having a dozen of sunnies in circulation that are cute and trendy?

As you can probably tell I love sunglasses that have cat eye lenses. But, I also love a good pair of aviators. Nothing is more classic then a sleek pair of aviators. And they go with any and every outfit in your closet! I’ve had my eyes on clear lenses for a long time now. I love the look of clear lenses and think they are oh so chic (if I do say so myself). I love how dainty and thin they are and they are so light weight! Nothing is worse then heavy glasses weighing down your face all day!

The best part? These sunnies are a whopping $10! Seriously, you cannot go wrong with $10 shades. If your looking for a trendy pair of sunnies or something classic like these aviators you need to check Shades Crush out! I’ve linked these glasses above!

One of my all time favourite outwear items, hands down, has to be a leather jacket. I just love the look and how versatile they are. I’ve been on the longest hunt trying to score a faux leather jacket that is shorter and more fitted. It’s been difficult to find one that hits the right spot and is the exact fit I’m looking for. But, after much searching I’ve not only found one that is the perfect fit, but the price is so right! No lie, this faux leather jacket is under $30!

Honestly, I was willing to spend way over $3o for the perfect moto jacket and definitely did not expect to get one at such a steal of a price. I literally walked into H&M and saw this jacket on the first rack right in front of the door under a signage reading $29.95! I was in so much shock that I didn’t even believe this was the price. Luckily, it was the price and this jacket is for REAL when it comes to fit! Truthfully it’s not going to be your go-to jacket for warmth but if your looking for style then it wins every single time. And for quality I was pleasantly surprised. Not bad for $29.95 that’s for sure.

Do I think you need to go out and buy this jacket! Yes! Do it. I’m wearing size small to have a true to fit size. But, if your looking to layer underneath I would definitely size up!

Happy New Year! I can’t believe Christmas has come and gone, and that we are already in 2017! I’m not really one for New Years resolutions and try to just set smaller goals on things I want to accomplish. I find it easier to achieve smaller goals then to set resolutions without any direction with how to achieve them! One of my goals is to be able to work smarter this year not harder, we’ll see how that goes. 🙂 What are some of your New Years goals or resolutions?

Anyways, this look is one I wore recently out with my hubby. I’ve come to really love turtlenecks. They are such a great Winter staple for layering and are such a classic piece to have in your closet. I get a lot of people asking me how to wear turtlenecks, especially an oversized one. Most people shy away from turtlenecks because it reminds them of when they were forced to wear them as a child (I totally was!). Or they just don’t know how to style them in a way they like.

My go-to way to style a turtleneck sweater is tucked in. Whether it’s tucked into a skirt or pants, this is my fool proof method for an easy outfit. If your wondering how to style turtlenecks to suit your style I would just swap it out with how you would style a basic long sleeve. Try styling your turtleneck sweater under a dress, fur vest, leather coat or just with a pair of leather leggings. As for finding a comfortable turtleneck sweater I would say that’s personal preference. I prefer my turtleneck sweaters to have more of a loose cowl neck then tight to my neck. But it really depends what look your going for. If your pairing it under a dress I would go for a sweater that is more fitted. But, if you want a more casual loose fit size up or go for an oversized turtleneck.

Basically, if your wondering how to style a turtlenecks I would say remember these two things. Layered or tucked!
