Let me tell you… if you do decide to go out and shoot photos– don’t wear an off-the-shoulder top. Definitely not ideal as it’s quite difficult move around in with the elastic band around your shoulders being restricted. Cute yet not the most awesome idea for comfort and working efficiency.
On that note, I’m slowly being sucked into the “cold shoulder” trend. Considering snagging some dramatic ruffle tops/dresses. Maybe a piece in satin or silk if possible for a more elevated, chic, look. We will see…
On a “Chic Eats” note, I went to Smith (I totally dig their branding which Leo Burnett did and their site) on Church St. with my lovely blogger-pal, Vincent Ko. Ordered their crazy french toast, a massive and extremely dense stack of pancakes, accompanied by some scrumptious and bomb-ass donuts (which I highly recco getting if you ever find yourself at Smith restaurant.) Practically almost passed out after the big, carb, brunch consumption party…
Summer is the season of becoming…rather minimal. And bright for me. Fresh, alluring whites and playing with delicate textures. In attempts to stay cool by wearing lighter shades during the longer days, there’s also something very exciting about wearing all white. Could it be the triumph from staying mess and accident-free? The great achievement of looking luxurious without breaking the bank? Or just all above.
Don’t tell me you haven’t celebrated at least once where you went wearing white all day while remaining squeaky clean. Cleanliness aside, wearing all white has basically become my go-to when I have no idea what to wear. It’s adaptable and presents me in such a way where I always look ready for anything.
It’s that time a year! When the air around you starts to feel much colder and you start to see red and gold everywhere you go.
With all this holiday spirit and winter rolling in, it’s no wonder we start to think of the cutest, festive outfit to sport at potentially your work party, S.O’s family’s dinner or just a night out with the gals to celebrate the beautiful holiday. I know when December drops on me– the first thing I start to think of are timeless, budget-friendly pieces, paired with something that screams ‘IM GLAMOUROUS,’ and ‘MERRY CHRISTMAS’ without being too obnoxious about it. I’m definitely not one for dressing up in any combination remotely close to red and green. But if you can work it, by all means!
For my outfit– I went with a flounce dress I scored at my local consignment boutique on Queen West, called ‘Fashionably Yours’ for a mere $8! Dressed it up with glittery gold COOLA heels from Call it Spring. I’m a firm believer that even wearing sparkles on your feet can make your entire outfit shine. Even with the most basic dress, top or skirt! The simple dress I chose to be paired with the heels makes a quick and effortless outfit for Christmas or New Years. This season is probably the only time where wearing glitter is urgently called for and is super forgiving if anyone who’s not used to wearing such sparkly items. For a little more lady-like silhouette, I layered my Melanie Lyn tweed coat, added some gold accent rings and grabbed a minimal white clutch. (Technically it’s my passport holder but it works for me.) Pink sunnies to contrast the sophisticated look and give it some fun, extra feminine vibes.
