1 Item, 3 Ways: MUJI Turtleneck

Monday, November 20, 2017
It's almost the end of November and it's crazy how this year is just flying by. With that being said, it's going to be my last fall post of the year! It's starting to get pretty cold in Toronto so it's time to start on the fall to winter transition stuff. I haven't posted a 1 Item, 3 Ways in months so of course I needed to end my autumn 2017 with that kind of post. Today, I'll be styling a wool fitted turtleneck from MUJI. MUJI is an incredible brand and I was fortunate to attend their fall/winter preview last year which is where I learned more about the quality of their brand. There was actually a 20 year old sweater they brought and it honestly looked brand new. I couldn't believe it. I've been wanting to style this turtleneck on my blog for a while so I thought it'd be perfect considering orange sweaters are becoming increasingly popular! I'm telling you, orange is IN and I'm loving it.

OUTFIT 1

The first outfit is half casual and half dressed up, but a great fall outfit. I decided to pair the turtleneck with a sleeveless blazer (a go-to of mine) and then some straight cut jeans. To add some accessories. I chose a layered necklace and a wool hat which are classic staples in anyone's closet.

Sweater - MUJI
Jeans - Levis
Blazer - River Island
Necklace - Forever21
Hat - Forever21
Shoes - Zara

The second outfit is definitely more on the casual side. I don't know why but I feel like overall dresses seem more appropriate for fall than the typical denim overall shorts you wear during the summer. You 100% can wear them almost any season but I feel like autumn is perfect! Layering overalls with striped sweaters is the perfect outfit for fall and it'll never get old.

Sweater - MUJI
Overalls - Topshop
Shoes - Zara

As for the last outfit, it's more of a dressier way to wear a turtleneck. I paired it with one of my favourite skirts from Joe Fresh but the blazer is what makes the entire outfit. I love this military styled blazer from SheIn! The embroidery is absolutely stunning. Considering its a turtleneck, I thought a thin blazer would add as a great layering piece without getting too hot.

And that is it for Autumn 2017! Let me know what type of winter posts you'd like to see. Also, keep an eye out on my YouTube channel - a new video will be released on Saturday!

The Must Have Accessories Every Fashion Girl Is Wearing

Monday, November 13, 2017
I've said it a countless amount of times on my blog, but the easiest way to make it look like your closet is endless is by having a bunch of different accessories. No matter what the season, accessories can easily transform your look. So what are all the accessories that fashion girls wearing this season? Check out the list below:


1) BRACELET BAG

 
I've never been one to care about having an endless amount of handbags to choose from but I will admit, it's slowing becoming something I want to invest more in. I tend to gravitate towards simple and elegant bags that are versatile since I don't own too many. This is why the bracelet bag is right up my alley. I love how elegant it looks with the metal handle versus leather. Chloé did such a great job with their collection that the bracelet bag is seen EVERYWHERE now in fast-fashion as well.

Outfit Details
Sweater - Zara (old)
Skirt - Simons
Bag - Madison West (via Winners)
Shoes - Le Chateau

2) BERET

 
Although Parisians don't actually wear berets all the time, we all know the stereotypical Parisian look is a striped shirt and beret. I absolutely love the look of berets and my best friend Carolina has been wearing them for so long so now seeing them everywhere, there's a bunch of new ones that are so cute!

3) STATEMENT EARRINGS


I've slowly been trying to wear bigger earrings. I used to love wearing earrings as a kid but then it stopped randomly and I didn't wear them for YEARS. I started to get back into wearing them but I started out with studs. The look of big earrings weren't my cup of tea; I feel like the look of how heavy they would be made it such a turn off. I've seen so many bloggers and influencers wear tassel earrings and it definitely has made me want a pair! Influencer marketing is probably the most effective thing ever for me.

4) CABBY HAT

 
How could this post be complete without mentioning my favourite accessory? The cabby hat, also known as a newsboy or baker boy hat has been skyrocketing in terms of popularity among fashion girls.

5) HOOP EARRINGS

 
Not only are statement earrings trending but specifically, everyone has been seen sporting hoop earrings again. Who knew those would be in style again? Personally, it's not my FAVOURITE and I wouldn't wear massive ones but there are some really cute double hoop earrings that I'd totally would wear. Honestly, it's just a fear of having too big of hoops that it'll get caught somewhere...that's why I'm not into the look.

Autumn Outfit Diaries 2017

Thursday, November 9, 2017

I'm sure a lot of people would agree that autumn is their favourite season. Personally, I love the chillier weather, the ability to layer clothes and most of all, the leaves changing colours. The very beginning of the season, Toronto had an extremely warm fall but by the end of it, it was cold enough for heavier coats. For today's post, I thought I'd share 4 outfits that I wore throughout the last few weeks that also give a good sense of how different my style can vary from day to day.
OUTFIT 1

A few weeks ago, I had a couple photoshoot with Carolina and her boyfriend. Of course, we have to coordinate our outfits so since I knew Carolina was going for ivy league vibes in her photoshoot, I wore a plain dress shirt and my go-to skirt. To make it a bit more of her vibes, I added a bow and topped it off with a corduroy jacket.

Outfit Details
Jacket - Thrifted
Shirt - Tommy Hilfiger (old)
Skirt - Zara (old)
Shoes - Zara (old)

OUTFIT 2

For this outfit, I wore it on my last at my office job. I actually had to give a presentation that day (at the end of it as well) so I wanted to make sure I look presentable. I mean, if you ask anyone at that workplace, they'd know I always was put together regardless, but, I was presenting to executive committee so I made sure my hair was done as well. I also love how adding a detachable collar makes any outfit stand out. I got this one a couple of years ago but Zara actually has been releasing a few!

Outfit Details
Dress - (old)
Collar - ASOS (old)
Shoes - Le Chateau (old)

OUTFIT 3

This day was the start of cold days in Toronto. I probably (most likely) will complain about the cold in Toronto but I will say it's my time to bring out all the different jackets and coats I own so I was excited to bring out this new teddy bear coat I got from Tobi. Teddy bear coats look incredibly warm but they're not...they sure are cozy to put on though! I went for a very casual look by putting on Levi's jeans and a Vogue t-shirt. The jacket made the outfit stand out more which is always something I like to do.

Outfit Details
Coat - Tobi
Shirt - Vogue
Jeans - Levis
Belt - Ardenes
Boots - Zara

OUTFIT 4

This last outfit is one I wore yesterday actually. It was much colder but of course, I sucked it up and took photos without my jacket to show you the details. I love dresses that you're able to layer nicely for colder seasons which was my first thought when I saw this on the Tobi website. I originally was going to wear a dress shirt underneath for some street style kind of vibe but opted for this lettuce trim shirt from H&M because it added more detail to it. It felt very plain but the lettuce trim made it so much better in my eyes. To top it off, I wore a trench coat and of course, a cabby hat.

Outfit Details
Shirt - H&M
Dress - Tobi
Jacket - Zara
Hat - H&M
Shoes - Le Chateau (old)

How To Have 5 Different Outfits With The Same Two Pieces

Monday, October 30, 2017

I mentioned a LONG time ago about how I tend to stick to the same few outfits when it gets colder. I have been better coming up with more outfits during the fall/winter ever since I started blogging but whenever I'm not shooting, I tend to wear the same outfit over and over again. Total outfit repeater but who can blame me? Last year, I posted about how accessories can transform your look and one day, as I was putting outfits together, I noticed how many I was coming up with for one particular outfit. So whether you're in California and having a warm fall day or in single digits, here are 5 outfits that you can have by changing a few pieces up:
OUTFIT 1

This is definitely something to wear on warmer fall days but I accessorized using a maroon neck scarf from Uniqlo that's perfect for all-year round. Considering green and maroon are typical fall colours, everything about this outfit screams autumn. Of course, a cabby hat is a staple in my closet so I paired it with my classic black one from H&M.


Outfit Details
Top - H&M (old)
Skirt - Forever21
Scarf - Uniqlo
Hat - H&M (old)
Shoes - Zara (old)

OUTFIT 2

If you need something a bit warmer, I'd pair the same sweater and skirt combo with a faux fur vest instead. For faux fur, this particular one from Vero Moda is by far one of the warmest items I own. Faux fur is still all the rage so they're available pretty much everywhere!


Outfit Details
Top - H&M (old)
Skirt - Forever21
Vest - Vero Moda (old)
Shoes - Zara (old)

OUTFIT 3

You all know my obsession with embroidery...it's actually a problem. I always thought that mustard yellow is an underrated colour. I think it's something that could be used all year round as well and isn't associated with a particular holiday. I decided to pull out this embroidered longline coat from SheIn again. It's perfect for those autumn nights when it's a bit chilly but not enough you need a full out coat.

Outfit Details
Top - H&M (old)
Skirt - Forever21
Coat - SheIn
Shoes - Zara (old)

OUTFIT 4

This is definitely one of my favourite outfits and you'll notice that I used the same Uniqlo scarf. I decided to wear a trench coat for this outfit because it's a classic autumn piece that pretty much 95% of people own. Instead of a cabby hat, I wore another hat trend that is going on this year, which is the beret. I love how different this outfit looks the minute I change the hat up. It gives off completely different vibes!


Outfit Details
Top - H&M (old)
Skirt - Forever21
Coat - Zara
Scarf - Uniqlo
Shoes - Zara (old)
Beret - Le Chateau (old)
OUTFIT 5

Finally, the last outfit is very typical for me because of the coat. If you've been following my blog and/or Instagram for a while, you'd know that this is my go-to coat that I'll wear 9/10 times I go out. It's my favourite one that I think has the perfect balance between an everyday coat and formal coat. To accessorize, I decided to stick to a classic wool scarf from MUJI which is the warmest one I own. It's actually an arm stole as well so that's why you'll see a slit in it.


Outfit Details
Top - H&M (old)
Skirt - Forever21
Coat - Laura (old)
Scarf - MUJI
Shoes - Zara (old)
