When I saw these houndstooth coordinates in the sale section of Forever 21 I was a little unsure at first. I’ve really started my collection of coordinates but don’t have a lot of cropped tops. With such a long torso I sometimes find that without higher waisted bottoms it’s too short! So when I finally got this outfit and put it on it was a match made in heaven! A perfectly shaped crop top and flared skirt!
I finished the outfit off with Kenneth Cole suede heeled sandals that I got from Ross in Florida. They’re extremely comfortable and I just love the thicker band around the ankle!
The outfit really reminded me of Cher Horowitz from the hit show Clueless. For something I was unsure about at first turned out to be a favourite! 🙂
It’s been a while since my last post (I was away on vacation and then have been sick since being back!)
I really couldn’t miss out on posting about my birthday outfit.
I came across a quote from Khloe Kardashian and she really put it quite well:
“Leopard print – it’s timeless, chic, and always in style. When in doubt…leopard!”
I couldn’t agree more with her! Ever since I was a little girl I’ve absolutely loved leopard print. Till this day if you take a look at my closet you will see I have built up quite a collection of leopard print shirts, skirts, skirts, jackets, hats, scarfs, you name it, I LOVE it!
One of my other favourites has and will always be pink. I will wear any shade of pink that is thrown my way! So, of course when I came across this fun Kate Spade skirt from Winners that was the best of both worlds I just had to pick it up. This particular skirt was also featured in Seventeen Magazine sported by Lilly Collins from Kate Spade’s Fall 2013 Collection. It just goes to show you, you don’t have to spend a lot to dress like celebrities, you’ve just got to know where to look! It also helped that it was on sale for $40.00 instead of it’s regular retail price of around $200.00.
I also really liked the fit of it, how it was tight at the waist and had a full skirt (better known as fit and flare.) My favourite part about the whole skirt (HIDDEN POCKETS), any skirt or dress with pockets is a winner in my books! The fluorescent pink criss-cross tank I picked up from Winners as well for only $12.99. They had a variety of different patterns and colours but this one immediately caught my attention hanging on the rack (then again, how could I miss it??) To finish off the look I went for a suede open toe bootie made by Calvin Klein that I bought at Winners last summer on sale for $25.00 (have you figured out that I’m a huge Winners fan??) I love the simplicity of the boots from the front and the edginess and creative design of the heel from the back! I kept accessories very simple by borrowing a statement necklace from my mom and rocking some more Kate Spade on my wrist. I bought the black bangle from the Kate Spade outfit for half off it’s retail price at only $25.00!
It may not have been the warmest of “Spring” days today, but the sun was out and shining bright! I got the inspiration for my outfit (pictured below) from a picture I stumbled upon on Pinterest of Sincerely Jules, one of my favourite fashion bloggers.
I’m a huge fan of anything leopard, and my collection of leopard pieces is continuing to grow! When I came across this long leopard hooded sweater from Zara I just knew I had to have it (it was also MAJORLY on sale!) It’s a pretty thick sweater so I went ahead and wore it as more of a jacket than a sweater and had a long-sleeve underneath.
I paired this amazing Zara sweater with a snap-button acid-wash denim shirt from H & M, black skinny jeans that have a slight shine to them (Forever 21) and black leather biker boots. I kept accessories to a minimum– my classic Ray-Ban wayfarers, Michael Kors Hamilton satchel/ Michael Kors belt and a black knitted pom-pom hat (because it’s not quite Spring yet!)
Although the temperatures in Canada are starting to rise and Spring is just around the corner I’m not ready to give up this incredibly fuzzy and comfortable sweater just yet! I was skeptical about it at first since I ordered it online and wouldn’t have the chance to try it on. The second I took it out of the box and put it on I was instantly in love! I ordered it from Forever 21 online a little while ago (they might still have it.)
This sweater is the perfect transitional piece for your winter to spring wardrobe!
I paired it with a sky blue long sleeve crew neck sweater, I was so in love with the colour. This is a perfect sweater that I can wear into Spring for a while since it’s not too thick and it’s the perfect colour! It came in a couple of colours but I personally really liked this one. I went for a dark pair of jeans (Michael Kors skinny jeans) and my black hunter boots. I finished the look off by layering two different delicate necklaces (loving this trend right now.) I got a pack of 3 from Urban Behaviour. I love them because you can wear them all together at different lengths or just one!
I’d love to hear what you think of this sweater (I’ve had some mixed reviews, most love it just like me!)
I got this amazing long down-filled coat as a Christmas present. The brand is Landry By Shelli Segal. I love the belt, such a nice classy touch!
As for the adorable knit leopard mitts and tube scarf, I got these from Aritzia at their end of season sale. The scarf was only $14.00 and the mitts were $9.00 you can’t beat savings like that!!! I really only buy stuff from this store when it goes on sale, and I had my eyes on these two things for a while- WELL worth the wait!!!
In the true spirit of Valentine’s Day I couldn’t resist pairing my favourite red Bananna Republic pants with a heart-patterned blouse from Forever 21. Of course even my Pandora bracelet is full of heart charms!!! Enjoy your Valentine’s Day! xoxo
I use to love Old Navy’s classic bubble vests way back when. It’s been a while since I’ve had one but as soon as I saw this neon pink one I was instantly re-sold! Upon re-discovering a childhood favourite I decided to browse some more in the store and couldn’t believe what I had been missing. During this shopping trip I picked up the adorable grey with white polka dot sweater and tan hat with neon pink pom-pom in their sale section. I had seen the hat on line that also came in navy blue with a turquoise pom-pom but the pink was all sold out- so you could imagine my excitement when I actually found one!
Since I was throwing it back to my “younger” years with the bubble vest it also inspired me to add another aspect of my childhood into my picture (my figure skates.) Up until about 5 years ago I figure skated since I was about 2 years old! The outfit made me feel like a big kid but I absolutely loved it! For a final touch I put on my bright blue Rayban aviators in some of the pictures (as you might have noticed I’m trying to chase my winter blues away with a bright wardrobe!) Scroll down after the outfit details for a few more shots of my outfit put altogether!
I’d love to hear your guys feedback on this outfit and some of your Old Navy finds! 🙂

A closer look at the amazing neon-pink bubble vest (I think I’m in love)
When I said I was in love with the vest… I almost forgot about my love for this adorably cute & bright toque!
You can’t go wrong with a pair of Rayban aviators (EVER), these bright blue lens ones are no exception!
This is one of my favourite looks! I’m not a huge fan of winter, but there’s no reason why you still can’t maintain your style in frigid temperatures! Below are some photos of me wearing this outfit. Some of them are taking with the large-rim black hat and some with a black toque & aviators. Following after these pictures are the details of my outfit! I hope you enjoy this outfit as much as I do! 🙂
RELEASING MY INNER SNOW-LEOPARD…
Here’s a list of where I picked up all these awesome items!
This awesome furry leopard print coat I picked up from Winners for only $30.00 I just LOVE the red details on the inside of the coat and on the buttons!
This cute and simple white/black striped sweater pullover I got from Joe Fresh on sale last year for $10.00!
You can’t go wrong with a great pair of black leather tights (always in style!) I wear these all the time, dressing them up or down! This particular pair is pretty thick and has the leather at the front and stretchy material at the back. It also has a zipper which makes them look more like jeans than tights. I just love how these fit! I’ve had these for two years now that I got from H & M.
I went with two totally different hats for this look. For one look I dressed it down with a simple black toque and the other I dressed up with a trendy black wide-brim hat!
This wide-brim hat I picked up from Urban Planet for only $12.00 (I picked up a few colours!) I love the cute little bow detail on the side!
My second look was my simple black toque. I also picked this up from Urban Planet for only $5.00!
I paired this look with an awesome pair of shiny black heeled booties. These are from Zara that I got on sale for $19.00!
I finished up the look with a classic pair of green lens and gold framed Ray- Bans. This particular pair is from Winners ($99.00, such a steal!)
And there you have it! A cute & fashionable look to conquer the cold! I’d LOVE to hear what you think of this outfit! :).
