Style Sunday: Favourite Outfits I Wore In Panama…

Hey Y’all,

I recently visited Panama, Central America with my “framily” ( Friends+family= framily). Beautiful country! Absolutely gorgeous weather! The perfect combination to help inspire bright and cheerful wardrobe choices. Here are some of my favourite pieces that I wore during my stay:

Black strappy sandals: Spring Shoes
Fanny Pack: my lil sisters closet 🙂
This outfit was a big stretch for me! I’m not one to show much midriff unless I’m in a bathing suit. 🙂  But this set I was able to modify so it was modest and a little risky at the same time.:) Two thunbs up for high waisted pencil skirts!

Yellow Dress: Forever 21
Brown Strappy sandals: Urban Behaviour I believe
Fanny Pack: ( see above)

 

That’s all folks! I’m preparing for another quick trip to somewhere sunny in a few days! Stay tuned to find out where I’m going and what I’ll be wearing 🙂

Style Sunday: 6 Fall Fashion Must Haves…

Style Sunday:  6 Fall Fashion Must Haves…

Hey guys!

Fall has arrived here in Canada and has brought its brisk and chilly temperatures with it!  This means that I needed to do a much needed inventory of my closets. Lately, I’ve been trying to minimize my closet which got me to thinking about what I considered to be my most essential Fall fashion must haves! I thought I’d share what I’d be reaching for the most this season!

  1. Black Leggings: These are my most reached for item! So comfortable and are easily styled so many different ways.  I have been reaching for pairs from Garage Clothing and  ones from Aritzia

2. Oversized Denim Jacket : I found one in New York a last month and have been obsessed ever since! When it’s not freezing enough for a puffy coat or jacket, I just reach for this jacket. Here’s a link to a similar one

3. Blanket Scarves: These are the perfect things to add to any outfit. Practical and fashionable. Most of mine, I actually thrifted from my moms closet! The others I have found from places like Forever 21, Ardene and Garage Clothing, to name a few. Here’s a link to one you may like.

4.  Chunky Heeled Booties: Comfort is key for me this season, which is why I constantly reach for a more thick heeled shoe. I have been loving this pair from Old Navy. I loved them so much I picked them up in black and olive green! Old Navy comes in clutch with the 40% off and super cash! I managed to pick these up for $23.00 each!

5. Cold Shoulder Tops/ Sweaters: There is something really appealing to me about an open shoulder! A tasteful way to show some skin especially in the workplace (lol) Here is a link to a style I have been loving.

6. Loafers: I have been loving loafers lately. Call me a granny ,but these are some comfortable and practical shoes and they are coming out with some styles that are pretty fashionable these days. Last year I picked up two pairs of velvet loafers from forever 21 on the sale rack for… wait for it… $6.00 a piece!! Hooray for clearance shopping! Those are no longer in stock so here is a link to similar ones.

Style Sunday: I May Be Obsessed With Mustard Yellow…

Style Sunday: I May Be Obsessed With Mustard Yellow…

Hey y’all!

Sorry I’ve been MIA but the end of summer just creeped up on me and I had to enjoy the last few weeks! I promise I am back to regularly scheduled blog posts!

Ok, now that that is aside, I just wanted to share with you a few of my weekend outfits! I had a couple of events to attend this weekend and it just so happened that mustard yellow seemed to be a trend for me this weekend.

Outfit One: Ripped Jeans and a Mustard Yellow Kimono.

I wore this outfit to a birthday brunch for my friend at Toronto’s  The Drake Hotel (Check out my blog post on the restaurant here) Sidenote: hands down the best chicken and waffles ever.

I found these jeans at  Old Navy on the sale rack. I think I picked them up for something ridiculous like 9 dollars! They are extremely distressed which I LOVE ! ( My dad asked me if my jeans were supposed to look like that LOL) They are also a high waisted fit which is very comfortable for me. These jeans also have a lot of stretch in them which makes them easy to wear for long periods of time ( think about eating a really good meal, who wants uncomfortable jeans on after that??! Not I!!! )

I paired them with a plain white camisole from Forever 21. My mustard and maroon kimono is also from Forever 21 ( last year) I love the velvet detailing of the maroon patches. It adds some diversity to the otherwise plain kimono and the tassel detailing just  brings this kimono all together. This kimono allows me to embrace my inner hippie and still keep it grunge!:)

On my feet, I just had on my rose gold slippers from Aldo Shoes. I have worn the heck out of these shoes this summer! I actually think I am going to go back and pick up another pair for next summer!

For jewellery I only added some big hoops and of course my necklace that I never take off!

For my makeup, I literally wore eyeliner ( Maybelline Unstoppable in Onyx) and Lipgloss ( MAC Lipglass in the colour Bittersweet Me) Guys, NO FOUNDATION! ( Come through skin!!! lol)

Outfit 2: White pencil dress and a Mustard Yellow Blazer…

This was a church outfit. Today my goddaughter was getting christened at church, so I wanted to wear something bright and cheery .

I purchased this white pencil dress from a store called Sirens. This was literally a purchase on whim a few weeks back for an all white event I had to go to. So comfortable!  It literally hugs every curve though, so if that’s not a look you are interested in, perhaps this dress is not the one for you.  I paired it with a mustard yellow blazer. What drew me to this particular blazer were the interesting peplum sleeves. I also really liked the oversized style of this jacket. I like the fact that you can wear this piece as a blazer or even as a light jacket if you prefer.

I just threw on some low heeled nude pumps today ( I just couldn’t manage real heels today lol)  gold hoops and that’s it!

I wore light makeup: just some concealer ( late nights caught up with me lol) eyeliner and a fuchsia pink pout to compliment the yellow!
