Co-ordinate Your Wardrobe 3.0: Summer Edition

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

Hey everyone! I'm going to just jump right into today's post which is all about matching sets. I've stated my obsession with matching sets before and I have 2 posts already in this little series where I style a matching set 3 different ways. I'm so excited for this one because of the summer vibes that is written all over it. Leaf prints are incredibly popular this time of year and this one I have is from SheIn.
OUTFIT 1

For the first outfit, I wanted to be a bit different and instead of opting for denim shorts or white, I thought I'd pair the top with black dress pants I got from Zara. They're my go-to pants for work so it's surprising that I'm wearing it with a very summery top!

Top - SheIn
Pants - Zara
Shoes - Zara

OUTFIT 2

The second way is styling it is wearing the complete set and pairing it with classic gladiator sandals. Don't be surprised if you see me where one of these pieces on my trip to St. Lucia later this month! The leaf print is such a classic piece to wear on vacation so there will be at least one outfit that will have these pieces!


Outfit Details
Top - SheIn
Shorts - SheIn
Shoes - Aldo
Sunglasses - EyeBuyDirect

OUTFIT 3

The last outfit I strayed away from the typical pairing with an off the shoulder top and wore a portofino blouse from Express. I'm obsessed with their portofinos because they're perfect for any occasion. I tend to wear them in a workplace environment but decided that the contrast trim would add a bit of uniqueness when paired with the leaf print shorts!

Top - Express
Shorts - SheIn
Shoes - Zara

Also, I wanted to share with you the newest collection from Warby Parker! Warby Parker is an eyewear brand that has an amazing and trendy selection. I for one, understand the struggle of finding the perfect pair of eyeglasses and/or sunglasses so I thought I'd share my favourite picks from their latest collection!


Hope you enjoyed today's post! If you want to look at the other two posts in this little series, then be sure to click the photos below. Also, let me know in the comments how you would wear a leaf print item :)

VELD 2017 Outfit Diaries

Monday, August 7, 2017
Good afternoon/evening! I had a very busy weekend which is why today's post is a bit delayed. I got the opportunity to go to Veld Musical Festival in Toronto (which is EDM) with NEON Stores. As you know, I worked with NEON back in October and they always have new items coming in so for the festival, I wore items that you can get there now. If you've met me or can tell the type of person I am by my videos and blog posts, you'd think that I wasn't a music festival person (which you'd be 100% correct). I do listen to EDM though, especially when I edit videos and I decided to go since Zedd was performing. His set was definitely my favourite and that's where Mikayla and I had the most fun. Since you're not allowed to bring DSLRs, the photo quality isn't as amazing but I wanted to show you guys the outfits I wore!

DAY 1

You really shouldn't be surprised that I wore the LEVI's denim skirt from my last post. It's actually an obsession and if you look closely on my Instagram feed, I wear it in almost every photo. Considering it was a music festival, I decided that statement pieces would be a good call so I wore this one I got at H&M (that has a matching skirt!) that I got during their summer sale. I've been wanting to get it since they first got it but it was really expensive so when Carolina got both pieces for $35, I immediately had to get it. As for shoes, I was all about comfort since there was a lot of walking around so I opted for my favourite Converse Pro Leather!


Outfit Details
Jacket - H&M
Top - Boohoo (old)
Skirt - Levis (via NEON)
Shoes - Converse
Bag - Anello (via NEON)

DAY 2

Day 2's outfit is a bit more scandalous for me because of the low back details. I love halter tops and back details but I've never worn something that basically has no back. This top was one of my picks from NEON and it's my favourite summer piece! I went simple and paired it with denim shorts from H&M. I love this pair because of the star details on the pocket and the one on the back. The "Day dreamer" stitching is my favourite part of them! Again, Converse Pro Leather shoes are always a good choice.

Top - Billabong (via NEON)
Shorts - H&M
Shoes - Converse
Bag - Anello (via NEON)

Did you do anything this (long) weekend? Let me know in the comments or let me know what you'd wear to a music festival! Also, thank you again to NEON Toronto for sending me to Veld! I had such a blast and if you're in the GTA area, you can get 20% off at NEON Toronto by showing them the code "BTW-NEON-20" until August 14!

1 Item, 3 Ways: Levi's Denim Skirt

Monday, July 31, 2017
Good morning everyone! Can you believe it's already the end of July? This summer is going by insanely fast and next thing you know, I'll be posting summer to fall transition outfits (which I'm very VERY excited for). Today's post is this month's "1 Item, 3 Ways". I can't believe it took me this long to post one but I'm really happy with the item I decided to style because denim skirts have been trending this year and I literally wear the one I own 2-3 times a week since I got it.

I actually was given this item by NEON Toronto because they're sending me the Veld Music Festival in Toronto that's happening this weekend! I had such a fun time choosing my outfit there; the staff is very friendly and helpful. I worked with them back in November so if you want to learn more about the store, you can click here for that blog post! But, if you live in the GTA and would like to stop by, show them this discount code "BTW-NEON-20" for 20% off. Sadly, it's only valid at the Toronto location!

OUTFIT 1

For the first outfit, I felt like going for the Canadian Tuxedo vibe. I normally don't wear denim on denim and the only exception I make is when there are different shades of it. I love that this outfit could easily be transformed into a city street style outfit by changing up the accessories as well.


Outfit Details
Top - Hollister (old)
Jacket - Boohoo (old)
Skirt - Levis (via NEON)
Shoes - Converse
Belt - ASOS

OUTFIT 2

I don't think I've mentioned on my blog before but I've had a recent thrifting obsession. I've been finding so many cute things and I'm 100% positive my mom is annoyed of it. I can't help the good deals though. This top was one of the first thrifted items I got within the past month. I love the summery vibes of it!


Outfit Details
Top - Talbots (thrited)
Skirt - Levis (via NEON)
Belt - Ardenes
Shoes - Converse

OUTFIT 3

The best thing about denim skirts is how versatile they can be. For the last outfit, I paired it with one of my ruffled blouses. This one has been shown on my blog before but I'm still obsessed with it. Ruffles and frills are one of my favourites when it comes to blouses so this one has been on repeat a lot!


Outfit Details
Top - H&M
Skirt - Levis (via NEON)
Shoes - Aldo

Which outfit was your favourite? Let me know in the comments below and I hope you have a great week!

Summer Lookbook 2017

Monday, July 24, 2017

Good morning everyone! I'm super excited to show you this summer lookbook because I've been shopping a lot recently and I have been experimenting more with my style. I experiment a lot anyways but I feel like a few of these pieces are things I don't normally wear.

OUTFIT 1

The first outfit is the simplest one but it's also one of the cutest ones. I've been obsessed with this short sleeve sweater from H&M because of the colours. I love the shades of pink and blue in it. I've worn this top a bunch of different ways so it's actually surprising that I didn't have a 1 Item, 3 Ways post for it! I paired it with a simple overall dress from Forever 21 and Converse Pro Leather. They are literally my go-to shoes if I know I'll be walking a lot!


Outfit Details
Sweater - H&M
Overall Dress - Forever 21
Shoes - Converse

OUTFIT 2

I didn't think I'd love this outfit as much as I did. It gives off a bit of a vintage vibe because of the top. This top actually was thrifted from Value Village. It was such a good deal ($9) and I think it's the perfect oversized top to walk around in the summer. I've been trying to find a denim skirt so I love this one I picked up from NEON recently. They let me come by to pick out an outfit for the Veld Music Festival so be on the look out for that in August!


Outfit Details
Top - Value Village (thrifted)
Skirt - Levis (via NEON)
Shoes - Converse

OUTFIT 3

This dress isn't something I normally would wear but if you compare it to my graduation dress (click here for that post), there's one huge similarity: the liner only being on one part of the dress. A lot of people don't like how liners stop randomly on the dress but I find that it gives off a different look that I love.


Outfit Details
Dress - SammyDress
Hat - Mendicino
Shoes - Aldo

OUTFIT 4

The last and final outfit is my absolute favourite. There are two details on this top that immediately drew my attention: the rings and the "sleeves". I put sleeves in quotations because in the photos, you can tell they can be worn two different ways. Depending on my mood, I'll either have it so it's just the straps but I do love how it looks when part of it is hanging. I paired it with the most amazing layered ruffled skirt that I got from SheIn recently. I really love the whole layered ruffled look in sweaters but I find it so intriguing on a skirt. I love the striped details because it adds more texture to the overall look compared to if it was a plain colour.


Outfit Details
Top - Zara
Skirt - SheIn
Shoes - Converse
