Quick post today! This weekend I had a weekend I had an opportunity to get together with some of my gal pals! We all met up in the downtown Toronto area, as it is the most central location for all of us. We were going to be taking transit because it’s so much easier to navigate the downtown core on the subway or a street car than it is to try and find ( and pay for) parking! So I needed an outfit that was super cute and super comfortable!
Here’s what I wore:
Black Tights: My absolute favourite tights from Garage Clothing. Very comfy and the shiny material makes them a little dressier than your average black tight.
Mustard Yellow Top: Purple is my favourite colour but yellow is my favourite colour to wear! I found a mustard yellow top with black pinstripes on sale at Old Navy for like 8 dollars I think! 3 quarter length sleeves and and a scoop neck make this a super casual yet trendy top.
Pins:The top I wore was very simple so to jazz it up a bit I added some pin patches. Pin patches were the in thing in the early 90’s when I was a little kid ( 5-6 or so) and I remember having a sweet denim jacket with tons of patches on it. So imagine my elation to see that this trend has made its way back around! Lots of stores have them and they are actually adult appropriate! I purchased the ones I was wearing from Aldo Accessories. Super cute and easy remedy to spice up a plain(ish) top.
Necklace:I had to throw on my favourite choker from Aldo Accessories. Black velvet with a tiny gold cross pendant.
Shoes: I threw on my trusted little tiger striped booties from an Aldo Outlet store many years ago. They are so comfortable which was perfect for the walking we did!
So that’s it folks! Have an amazingly stylish week and remember….
I’m back again with another edition of “Style Sunday”. This week centres around a faux fur jacket that I purchased from Forever 21 ( seriously this place needs to sponsor me 🙂 ) many years ago. I found this little gem on the sale rack, in just the right size 🙂 so of course I scooped it up!
I love this jacket! I really enjoy the camel and chocolate brown colour combination because it reminds me of leopard print which I absolutely ADORE!
I purchased this jacket before it was “on trend”. I’m glad I kept it and didn’t get rid of it because clearly everything that is old becomes new again! I really like that it is a bomber style jacket . It is satin lined so it is really soft and comfortable to wear. It’s definitely a jacket that you wear for fashion and not to actually keep you warm… well at least where I live (lol I live in Ontario, Canada where this wouldn’t keep you warm in our frigid winter months ) Like I said this jacket was purchased years ago so it’s unavailable to purchase anymore but since faux fur is on trend right now Forever 21 has quite a few current options for you to choose from if you’re interested.

I really wasn’t in the mood today to wear a skirt or a dress to church so I pulled out another oldie but goodie from my closet- an olive green jumpsuit coincidentally also from Forever 21. This jumpsuit is made of rayon material which makes it super lightweight and comfortable to wear. It has side pockets as well as two front pockets on the top. It also has a draw string waist. This isn’t available for purchase anymore but here is something very similar also from Forever 21.
I finished the look off with some nude sling black tie up pumps from Call It Spring. I wore no jewellery today with the exception of my everyday gold chain and studs and kept my makeup relatively basic ( eyeliner, concealer, setting powder, mascara, LAX liquid lipstick from Colourpop Cosmetics.)
So that’s it folks! That’s it for this week! Have a great week and remember…
Quick edition of Style Sunday today. Anybody who knows me well, knows that purple is my all time favourite colour. If there is anything purple on a sales rack or a make up counter or a furniture store ( lol) my eye is instantly drawn to it!
So, I was in the dollar store browsing the aisles, and I was drawn to a cluster of purple faux-flowers. I snatched them up and brought them home and made a flower crown out of them ( Check out my blog on DIY Flower Crowns here 🙂 But now what to wear with it? I dug deep into my closest and brought out some old favourites to create a modern look!
The purple dress is ancient… like at least 13 years old. Its a simple cotton dress with a empire waist. Such a comfortable dress! As you can see it has a super deep V-neck, but because I was heading to church, ( and because I like to keep my ladies contained :P) I placed a matching plum camisole underneath. I also added gold necklace from Aldo accessories.
The shoes are also ancient… I see a trend here.. I get rid of nothing… (lol) Theses shoes are a simple 3 1/2 inch stiletto heel. I actually have these shoes in grey and black as well.
As you know, I made my flower crown myself and to finish the look off I kept my face makeup simple… ish. Black eyeliner and mascara, some higjlighter and of course a purple lip!( Kat Von D “Ayesha” mixed with Mac Nightmoth lip liner.
