Welcome to 2017’s first edition of “Style Sunday”. Today is a super chill day so I just wanted to share with you a quick everyday casual outfit. It seems as of late I have been gravitating towards really simple pieces in my wardrobe. Solid colours like black, white, grey and olive green ( and mustard yellow) have been the colours in my wardrobe palette as well as stripes and polka dots. I’ve also really begun to enjoy wearing running shoes ( tennis shoes, sneakers or trainers for my US and UK readers :p) so through the magic of Christmas , I have built a nice little selection!
So let’s begin! First I started off with a nice and shiny pair of black leggings from Garage Clothing. These retail for $24.95 Canadian but I HAVE NEVER paid that much! I always seem to go into Garage when there is a 50% off sale. These are the perfect leggings that are casual but still give you the option to dress them up if you wanted to.
Next, I added a black and white v-neck long sleeved cotton shirt that I purchased at Old Navy on Boxing Day for 6 dollars! I am kicking myself that I didn’t buy the other colours as they are no longer in stores and not on the website!! Ah well you win some you lose some! Old Navy has a similar one now on sale that retails for 15 dollars.
On my feet I wore a simple pair of black knee high boots that I purchased from Aldo shoes during their 40% off sale. Super warm and great for everyday wear.
Last, I threw on a gold bar necklace that had some cute chain detailing, some red lips and eyeliner and I was ready to go! Last piece that I added was my cute backpack from Forever 21 (you know I couldn’t let a post go by without Forever 21 sneaking in there lol)
So that’s it folks! I look forward to sharing more fashion content with you this year!Have a stylishly wonderful week!
I’m back again with another edition of Style Sunday! Where I live, the beloved “patio season” ( translation: the time of year when the weather is phenomenal and you can sit outside and eat your dinner comfortably) is among us! There is nothing greater then sitting on a patio with your girlfriends ( or significant other) eating some great food and engaging in some awesome conversation.
This past weekend to be honest, I had no intention of going out. I was exhausted from work and had more work to come home and do… but… my co-workers convinced me to come out for dinner so I went. However, my dilemma was .. I finished work at 5:30, had to run to Sephora and get my Jaclyn Hill/Becca palette ( guys… this palette is BAE…) so by the time I got home It was 615, with dinner reservations for 8ish….. and I had no idea in mind. I tried on about 4 different dresses and I wasn’t feeling anything! I was about to pull out the classic little black dress and wham… it hit me! An outfit was born!
I had recently gone on a clothing haul and bought a bunch of classic basic pieces. One of the pieces I purchased was a pair of white shorts from Old Navy. I was lucky to grab these shorts on sale! Original priced at $26.94, I was able to pick these up for a measly $12.99! I of course got them in black and navvy as well. I like these shorts because they are of an appropriate length which is super hard to find in this day an age ( lord I’m showing my age… but forgive me if I don’t want my bottom exposed…)
I paired it with a three quarter length sleeve flowy floral top that I purchased at a store called Urban Behaviour no less than 6 years ago on the sale rack! This top cost me only $9.99! So comfortable and cool enough to wear on a warm summer evening! This shirt has a slim, cognac coloured belt that allows for you to cinch the top at the waist and help give you that hourglass figure.
On my feet I wore a pair of denim and wood peep toe platform shoes, that I purchased from a store called “Call it Spring” last season. I wasn’t able to find them on the website anymore or find something reasonably priced that were similar. I purchased mine for $39.99.
