How is your week going so far?

Fun question of the week: My brother thinks you should wait until December 1st before you drink any eggnog or listen to Christmas music. Do you agree?

(I’m on the opposing side since I’ve already been listening to Christmas music a bit and had eggnog :p)

Stormy Sunday Outfit Of the Day โ˜”๏ธ

Hello loves!

I was greeted with blustery weather today and did not want to leave bed! ๐Ÿ’ค

However, one heroic mug of coffee later and here I am!

Excuse my chippy polish, I’m very overdue for a manicure!

On days like this I giggle because I feel like I roll out of bed, and then find an outfit that is as cozy as possible to feel like I’ve never left! Does anyone feel that way?

To start, I’ve been living in my chunky knit sweater from Forever 21. It’s slightly cropped but still long enough to cover the stomach and feel cozy.

Next I am loving my fingerless gloves! As always if you’re a photographer, or anything that requires nimble fingers these gloves are the way to go.

Lastly are a few items that are my makeup favourites.

The e.l.f lipstick in the shade ‘Praline’. The perfect cool tone nude.

E.l.f eyeshadow trio in ‘Brown Bonanza’.

Last but not least my Matt and Nat wallet, and some cute 90’s-ish palm tree beaded earrings.

Have a fabulous Sunday everyone and I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Seasonal Outfits

Autumn Greetings everyone!

I know its been a while since I posted last and I’m here to break the dry spell! After Thanksgiving It got very busy for me, but also trying to having much needed down time.

Anyhoo, I’ve come today to discuss one of my favorite topics: Fashion.

As the days and weeks chug along, we get closer and closer to the holiday season. And following our holidays, or just any night outs, comes the perplexing question: Do I dress formal? Am I supposed to dress casual?

My most favorite quote, spoken from the lips of anyone who’s ever gotten ready with their friends is: “Wait, were we supposed to dress up?”

I can tell you now my friends, I am here to calm your worries and hopefully cast a lifesaver into the ocean of ideas.

I firmly believe that people should dress for their comfort levels. If you feel most comfortable dressed up, or more so in casual attire than do so. These are merely my go-to outfits for nights out and special occasions. ๐Ÿ™‚

#1: Casual Cozy Dress

For this look I have paired a casual dress with a thin long sleeve sweater. To top off this simple look I accessorized with a gold heart buckle belt, and my favorite snake skin heels. My favorite feature of this outfit (that I firmly believe carries the whole look) is the cute 50’s style neckline and pleats of the dress. The gorgeous aqua color of the dress also pairs well with the ย black accessories.

You can switch up any colors and patterns for this outfit. The base being: Long sleeves + Collar layered over top + cute shoes of your choice!

#2: Comfy Combo:

A lot of the time people associate dressing up with…well, dresses. But dresses can bring many woes and, how you say, ‘breezy situations”. ย So for a dressy yet sturdy look I paired black and aqua together once again (definitely not on purpose I swear). My bottoms are a lovely pair of canvas beach pants. Typically worn in summer I love these pants and cannot bare to bid farewell in the long winter months. My shirt is a simple black pleated shirt.ย 

An easy combo made from: Flowing, eccentric pattern top + solid color slacks or dress pants + your fave pair of comfy heels or other shoe choice.

Last but not least:

#3: Sweater, Collar, Cool jeans love.

Okay, I may have ran out of cool names for this outfit, but It does not take away from how much I adore it! (And ignore the smudge on the picture…I need to clean my mirror apparently)

If it wasn’t already obvious I have a love for collar and sweater combos! this layer is sort of the opposite of the first outfit with the collar placed underneath. My jeans and boots add the pop of color this outfit needed. I often pair this with my riding boots as an alternative to the chunky heels if I’m bustling around town.

A match made in heaven made up of:

One part multi use long sleeve + a hint of a cute lacy collar shirt + Floral funky jeans + A dash of chunky heels or riding boots = Perfection!

Now, I refrained from naming brands since I wanted to focus mainly on the template of these looks, so anyone can put them together with their own wardrobe.

I hope you enjoyed this post! I certainly had fun putting it all together! And if you did have any curiosity of the brands just leave me a comment and I’d be happy to share! Let me know if you’d like to see more like this.

Do you guys have any favorite outfits for the holidays? Let me know! ๐Ÿ™‚

Fall: The Real Wardrobe Renewal

ย  ย As fall rolls in a sense of renewal seems to sweep over our lives. ย The leaves begin to change color and shape, and so does our wardrobe. Spring is often seen as the season of cleaning and ‘out with the old’ motto, but Iย find fall is the real season of new beginnings and life inspiration.

Fall undoubtedly is my favorite season specifically for turning over your summer and spring clothes, and bringing out the cozy flannels and onesies. I always uncover old hidden jems in my wardrobe.ย Last year they seemed a bit tired and old, but after a long summer they seem rejuvenated . As well as discovering a new love for some of your ‘greatest hits’ it is always a time you really realize just how many scarves you own, or the abundance of winter coats you have far outweigh the winter months in the year. Fall is a good time to donate to your shelters, or to the local thrift stores around town. As it gets colder people in need seek more shelter and help than ever. Donating to your local thrift store helps put warm clothes that are comfortable and confidence boosting out there for people who need it. Thrift stores are no longer places of worn out dirty sneakers and eighties colored ski jackets that, lets face it, nobody really wants to adopt. They have become a wonderful save haven for those who are strapped for cash, or a treasure trove for those who just love a good thrift hunt. Recycle your clothes! Its a necessary and kind thing to do!

I know its not my usual genre of writing, but I just felt a need to write a bit about this as I thought it needed some light shed on it and perhaps a new light brought to donating to your local Salvation Army, thrift store, second hand store ect.

Thanks for reading!
