Little to No Effort Outfits for Autumn

Monday, October 9, 2017
Now that it's finally getting cooler in Toronto, I can finally finally finally start sharing my favourite autumn looks. You know that it's autumn in my mind, when I start saying autumn versus fall. Summer to Autumn transition sounds odd to me and I'm sure it's like that for other people as well. Back in the spring, I posted a "Little to No Effort Outfits for Spring" that surprisingly did better than I anticipated. I realized why it would though; a lot of people don't have time to constantly come up with new outfits. That's why I thought I'd make an autumn edition of this!

LOOK 1: Sweater Dress + Cabby Hat + Infinity Scarf + Statement Belt + Over The Knee Boots

Nothing makes an outfit more easy than throwing on a dress! Obviously for the colder seasons, you'll be throwing on a sweater dress instead. Accessorizing it with a belt and infinity scarf makes it the typical fall outfit. Also, over the knee boots are a classic so you can never go wrong with them; they also make any outfit look fancier. If you're into trends, then I'd say add a cabby hat because cabby hats are the greatest accessories ever and still my favourite.

Outfit Details
Sweater Dress - American Eagle
Shoes - Le Chateau
Scarf - Etsy
Belt - ASOS (similar)
Hat - H&M (similar)

LOOK 2: Long Sleeved Striped Top + Sleeveless Blazer/Coat + Neck Scarf + Jeans


One of the items I consider a wardrobe staple is a sleeveless blazer/coat. Whoever has been reading my blog from the very beginning would know that my first outfit post even had a sleeveless blazer! It's an item I think can easily transition into any season (hence why it'd be part of my wardrobe capsule). Throw it on top of a simple striped top and ripped jeans (which you probably already own) and you're set. To make the outfit like you tried a bit more than you actually did, tie on a neck scarf.


Outfit Details
Top - H&M (old)
Sleeveless Coat - ASOS (old)
Jeans - Urban Planet
Scarf - Uniqlo
Shoes - Converse

LOOK 3: Graphic Tee + Leather Jacket + Pleated Skirt + Statement Necklace

Sometimes you don't want the cozy knit typical fall look so for this one, I opted for something that a lot of people would own: faux leather jacket and graphic tee. By accessorizing it with a statement necklace and pleated skirt, you easily make this outfit look more put together instead of wearing classic jeans and sneakers.


Outfit Details
Top - Bershka
Jacket - Zara
Skirt - H&M
Necklace - Bauble Bar
Shoes - Zara

Co-ordinate Your Wardrobe 4.0: Fall Transition

Monday, October 2, 2017
With the biopolar weather in Toronto (and pretty much everywhere else in the world), it's no wonder no one knows how to properly dress. It's that transitional time when you're cold in the morning and then burning in the afternoon or vice versa. When I came back from vacation at the end of August, Toronto had fall weather. I was ecstatic about pulling out my trench coats and starting to layer. I didn't think we'd be stuck in the transitional period for as long as we have been. It's crazy, the leaves are changing yet it feels like the hottest day of summer.

For today's post, it's sooner than I thought I would post it but it's another guide to styling matching sets. This one in particular I find perfect for this awkward transitional time because of the colours. It's a very loud floral print but because of the colours in it, it doesn't scream fall but it doesn't scream summer either - you can wear it for both seasons which is perfect.

OUTFIT 1: ELEGANT

The print makes it perfect for dressing up and dressing down. For this more elegant look, I decided to pair it with one of my favourite blouses from Zara and accessorizing it with gorgeous earrings I got from Pandora as a graduation present. The minute you put these earrings on, it easily makes the look more elegant and classy.

Outfit Details
Top - Zara
Skirt - H&M
Earrings - Pandora
Shoes - Zara


OUTFIT 2: CITY VIBES

I feel like it's an obvious reason why I chose to wear a basic grey cami underneath the jacket; the print is so loud so I wanted to tone it down by having a plain top rather than pattern mixing or something. I matched the top with the shoes to tie it all together as well!

Outfit Details
Top - Hollister
Jacket - H&M
Skirt - H&M
Shoes - Zara


OUTFIT 3: CASUALLY CHIC

Lastly, I wanted to make this look very casual so it can be a very different vibe from the other two looks. To bring out the pale blue in the jacket, I decided to pair it with a short sleeve cashmere colour that matches perfectly with it! I paired it with tasseled jeans to add more interest to the outfit.

Outfit Details
Top - Jones New York (thrifted)
Jeans - Topshop
Jacket - H&M
Shoes - Zara

How To Wear Your Summer Lace Dress For The Fall

Thursday, September 28, 2017

Happy Thursday! So glad it's almost the end of the week. I can always look forward to my weekend because I'll always have plans the Friday and Sunday. I'm not one for routines but having a couple of days set aside for your friends and boyfriend is always a nice way to end a work week. Considering I'm at work all day, it's hard to make time for blogging so I'm glad I've been able to manage everything so far. I'm particularly excited about this weekend because of that light festival that I mentioned in a previous blog post! I'm just so so so excited to show you everything afterwards. Be sure to follow on Instagram to get a sneak peek!

I honestly didn't expect to have more than 1-2 transitional posts but with the weather, I've been coming up with different ways to deal with the weather. One of the items I realized I wear all the time (but only in the summer) is a lace dress. I tend to buy lace dresses in a lighter colour so it's perfect for the spring/summer season.


The dress I'm wearing today is my new favourite one in my (very small) dress collection! I saw it when it originally came out in stores at H&M but the $80 price tag was not in my budget whatsoever. When I saw that it went on sale for $30, I immediately bought it.


There are so many details to love about this dress and my favourite parts are the ruffled lace detailing on the bottom and the back. There's also eyelet detailing along the ruffles both on the top and bottom of the dress. It's perfect for any hot summer day. I decided to belt it with a simple white belt to add more detailing to the overall outfit and wore my favourite bracelet from Cherry Pick.


In one of my previous transitional posts, I mentioned how I transitioned a dress using a corduroy jacket. I didn't want to do something similar like that so I decided to throw over a cropped turtleneck sweater that's also from H&M. I've wanted to have this type of outfit for a while and considered using a white lace dress I own but it didn't have the same effect it has with this dress!


Unlike wearing the dress on it's own, the ruffles on the bottom are more prominent when you have a sweater on top. There is so much detailing on the dress, I feel like the back is what stands out for most people. I definitely got more comments about the back of the dress on my Instagram story versus about the ruffles!


Of course I had to wear my cabby hat (that is also from H&M)! Cabby hats are definitely trending more so now this fall season compared to last year! It's literally my favourite fall/winter accessory to wear and it's perfect for making any outfit 1000x more chic. I'm on the hunt for an affordable camel one so if anyone knows where to get one, let me know! Lastly, I paired it with grey booties to add more colour to the outfit instead of going with black booties to match the hat. I usually would match my accessories and shoes but I honestly like this look much better.


How would you wear your favourite summer dress in the fall? Let me know in the comments below!

Dealing with Bipolar Weather: Summer to Fall Transition

Monday, September 25, 2017

Good morning! How was everyone's weekend? Personally, I'm exhausted from it because I went out everyday shooting and it felt like 40 degrees with humidity in Toronto. Why isn't it fall yet? Either way, I'm glad I was able to shoot about 4 outfits for you guys. I ended up having way more summer to fall transitional posts than I expected but hey, the more outfits the better right?

For the crazy bipolar weather, I've been coming up with different ways to dress for the day. I leave for work early in the morning so it's much colder than it is during the day/when I leave work. The following two outfits are ways you can dress for this type of weather!

OUTFIT 1:

I love how this outfit is a perfect mix of summer and fall. The mustard yellow trench coat* from SheIn works perfectly for either season. It's a longline coat that is a thin material so it's great for that fall breeze. Underneath, I wanted to keep it simple by wearing a very thin ribbed sweater from H&M that you've seen countless times on my Instagram and layered it with a corduroy dress from Forever21. I accessorized it with typical fall booties that I borrowed from my sister and topped it off with my *new* cabby hat. Get ready to see this on my blog a lot this autumn season!
Outfit Details
Top - H&M
Dress - Forever21 (similar)
Jacket - SheIn*
Hat - David & Young (via Winners)

OUTFIT 2:

One of my favourite tops I got this summer was this backless floral one from Billabong. Since it was one of the pieces I constantly wore, I knew I had to figure out a way to transition it into fall. Instead of matching it with a dark green jacket (which I have when I went to VELD), I decided to pair it with an old waterfall trench coat from ASOS.

Top - Billabong (via NEON)
Skirt - Zara
Jacket - ASOS
