How to Incorporate Colour Into your Wardrobe

I don’t like wearing bright colours. Surprise! Haha, black is my favourite colour (Yes, I know black is a shade but I’d rather call it a colour, sue me). Recently though, I find that wearing bright  colours is sorta nice? It spices things up. It makes you stand out.  And I sorta kinda don’t completely hate the idea anymore. People change OK? Keep reading to find out how I incorporate colour into my wardrobe.….

It’s summer and I like to feel girly and airy. Summer is the time to definitely put your black and grey clothes in a suitcase  far away. I mean, I want to reflect feelings of joy and happiness so this summer especially, I wore a lot of yellows and reds. People definitely took notice. Here’s how you can do the same.

Wear a Bright Coloured Blazer – This blazer is about 2 years old. At first I didn’t want to purchase it but I was tired of wearing black all the time. The first time I wore it I got so many compliments. This can be worn as a dress or with trousers.

Get a different coloured purse from your Outfit – Girls, you don’t always have to match everything. Your dress doesn’t have to match your shoes and purse. Style is all about taking risks. So if you’re wearing a blue dress you can wear a yellow purse.

Try wearing bright Shades – I didn’t start getting into this trend until I saw Rihanna doing it in her wild thoughts music video. I was like “Yeah that looks so high fashion, let me go buy some pink shades”. I looked so bomb.

Throw on bright sandals – This perks up your everyday work wear. Aldo has a great collection of colours  for those days when you want to spice things up.

Yes, so those are some of the ways in which I incorporate colour into my wardrobe. Sometimes I feel weird because as I mentioned above I like wearing black but I figured that nothing great ever happened to anyone who stayed stuck in the comfort zone.

The Trend Report : Linen Styles

Linen is one of the biggest trends this season. In the past, I only thought of  linen as the clothing my Grandma wears on Sundays to Church. Remember those linen skirt suits that always got rumpled after sitting down? Remember those days? Haha, I feel so old. Continue reading….

IMG_7112

Linen this season is very elevated and fresh. It’s not just about those skirt suits that your grandma used to wear. Now, there are linen vests, dresses and cute linen pants.

IMG_7121

Linen is great for the summer. I love that linen is light and airy, it almost feels like you’re not wearing anything, which is something I live for. I just like to feel comfortable Ok?

AfterlightImage

I saw this dress in Winners a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t go into the store to buy clothes, I just wanted a beach towel, but then I saw this dress. I fell in love with it. When I looked at the rack, I only saw size small, so in my head I kept muttering, “God, please let my size be there” over and over. Look, I really wanted the dress OK? It was just so beautiful. There was only one on the rack, but I kept searching. I then said to myself, “Look on the other side”. Then I saw more sizes and I was so happy. I went to the changing room and I prayed that it would fit my upper chest, because I have huge boobs and it’s really hard to find cute stuff. that fit that part of my body. When I went into the changing room and  tried it on and saw that it fit I was so happy.

AfterlightImage

I like that this dress is a great example of how to wear modern linen. This dress can be worn with some nice heels and simple makeup. It didn’t crush that much. I really love this dress.

Linen isn’t just in neutral colours in 2018. There are bright coloured linen clothes and also dark colours as well like grey and black. I think linen is here to stay. What do you think?

What new trends are you trying this year? Have you ever worn linen before?

OOTD : Summer Essentials

Today’s Outfit, is one of my favourites ever, and I don’t really have favourites when it comes to outfits. I’m the type of person who likes to change things up frequently, so you’ll never really see me looking the same. This look brought me to think about my Summer Essentials, the items of clothing I can’t live without during the summer time. Keep reading……

 

AfterlightImage

These are my Essentials for the Summer …….

Platform Sandals – I bought these at the beginning of the summer and I must say that I really love them. I saw them in the Forever 21 and I immediately thought, “I have to get these”. They were just very different from the usual sandals and and liked that they had platforms. They are super comfortable as well. I wear these every time I go out. You can shop similar ones Here as it is sold out.

AfterlightImage

Off the Shoulder Tops – I was one of those people who were skeptical about off the shoulder tops when they first came out, because I have bigger boobs, but after I tried one, I was hooked. Now, I have different variations and colours. I don’t think I can go one summer day without an off the shoulder top. This top is also from Forever 21, you can find different variations Here

AfterlightImage

Light Washed Denim – I just really like light washed denim for the summer. First of all, it’s soft, and it’s just beautiful for those hot summer days. I don’t wear jeans pants in the summertime, because it’s so hot and I mean who wants jeans or leggings sticking on to their skin? Certainly not me, so I find alternatives like dresses and light washed denim overall shorts. I like when my legs get fresh air, you know what I’m saying? I love this one from Forever 21. I felt as if I could wear this to a carnival or a barbecue. You can shop it Here

AfterlightImage

Other outfit essentials that aren’t pictured – Sunglasses, Small cute colourful handbags.

This outfit wasn’t inspired by anyone really, but it’s not original, I’m sure someone has done this look before.I just wanted to wear something different because I’ve noticed myself  only wearing dresses. This outfit felt more hippie than my usual ones. but I loved the change. I received a lot of compliments in this look.

AfterlightImage

Hope you all have a great week! XOXO

I Decided To Dress Like Kim Kardashian For A Day

I love Kim Kardashian. Yeah, judge me, I don’t care. Whenever I watch the show, Kim always makes me laugh with her antics and I just love how she’s always there for her family. She kinda reminds me of myself in a way, and I love how driven she is. She’s actually my favourite out of all the Kardashians, aside from Kris Jenner and Kendall.

I’ve been watching Kim’s style throughout the years and yes, like everyone else, I really love some outfits, and then I really dislike others. This week I decided to dress like Kim Kardashian for a day. I’ve noticed Kim wearing , Biker Shorts and T- Shirts with sneakers a lot lately so I said, “Let me try this”. Mind you, I can’t afford Yeezy clothing or shoes, but I decided to work with what I had in my closet already.

This is how Kim usually looks in Biker shorts and T shirts

IMG_6786

fullsizeoutput_16c9.jpeg
Here she is dressing up her Biker shorts with heels and a Denim Jacket

And this is how I copied her look.

AfterlightImage

I wore this look to the mall and people looked at me strange. Their face said, “What the hell is she wearing?”, but did I care? Nah. I mean I dress for myself, not for people.

AfterlightImage

Kim sometimes dresses up this look with heels or a denim jacket but I wanted to go the more comfortable route with the sneakers.

AfterlightImage

My friend saw me in this outfit and she said that I looked like a homeless person. Yeah I know that’s what people say when they see Kim in this outfit going out too but honestly I didn’t let that stop me.

AfterlightImageAfterlightImage.jpg

In conclusion, I’ll be wearing more Biker Shorts and T shirts till summer ends, whether I’m going to the mall or out with my friends. I don’t care if I look like a homeless person, or, a hobo. The best thing about this outfit? It’s really really comfortable. You know what I’m saying? And I LOVE things that feel comfortable.It felt really simple, like I was just wearing jeans and T shirt. The material of the biker shorts felt really soft and the T shirt was large and just really comfortable. This is athleisure that I can actually see myself wearing everyday. Throw out sweatpants and give me these! I can see why Kim Kardashian loves wearing them so much, they’re the best!

Btw, Kim, can we be best friends  now? Can I be apart of your squad?Haha, if only.

What to Wear When You’re A Lazy Dresser Like Me

If you’re like me, putting too much effort into matching your skirt with your top, or into looking stylish for that matter,  can be exhausting! Don’t get me wrong, I love fashion and I think that effort should be made, in regards to how you look, but why does it have to be so complicated? It could be so easy. Instead of spending 1 hour trying to piece a look together why not just spend 20 mins?

fullsizeoutput_1539

Listen, I don’t want or need to spend an hr on my outfit, when I could be using that time for something else, like putting on my makeup. Where am I going to that I need to spend hours coming up with an outfit? Am I going to be meeting with the Queen of England?

I’m fashionable, but I’m a really lazy, so here are some ideas of What to Wear When You’re a Lazy Dresser like Me

Wear Dresses – Wearing a dress is my go to. I just pop on a dress and I’m ready to go in no time. No stress, no hassle. It can be a T- Shirt dress, shirt dress etc.

IMG_6465

Bike Shorts and A T- Shirt – I love wearing this combination these days. Whenever I need to run an errand I just throw on a bike shorts and a T shirt and I’m out of the house. So easy and simple.

IMG_6462

Jumpsuits – Jumpsuits are the laziest outfits ever! There’s no fuss, throw on a jumpsuit with a pair of heels and you’re good to get going.

IMG_6463

Jeans and a T- Shirt – Who doesn’t love a good jeans and T- Shirt outfit? This is just for when you really can’t be bothered

IMG_6464

A Faux Fur Vest and a Dress – As seen above this is the laziest outfit ever. It doesn’t take much effort but don’t I look fabulous?

The point of this post isn’t to bash anyone. I’m just showing that fashion and style doesn’t have to take you hours. It can be simple and really easy.

For someone who is as lazy as I am, the options above work really well.

Why make it complicated when it could all be so easy? You know what I’m saying?

Dress – My dress was 20$ from H&M but I bought it like 2 years ago. You can find similar ones Here

Faux Fur Vest – The exact one that I have is sold out as I bought it 2 years ago but you can find similar ones Here

Do you take hours to put an outfit together or are you a lazy dresser like me? Comment below. I wanna hear your thoughts

Have a fabulous week my darlings! XOXO

Plaid Comeback Fashion

One of 2018’s  biggest trends is Plaid. The trend isn’t just about school girls wearing those short skirts anymore, or, that red and black tartan shirt that you own. The plaid trend has catapulted into something more. Now, there’s bright coloured plaid styles and even plaid sets. One thing that is clear? Plaid is here to stay.

fullsizeoutput_1257

I bought this Plaid blazer and skirt, about a year ago. I bought the skirt first, because it was so mesmerizing and I couldn’t leave the store without it. I don’t usually wear skirts, but I liked this one because it had buttons and I liked the plaid pattern. The color was really nice as well, it was really subdued which is what I’m into

fullsizeoutput_125f

I had to attend an end of the year office party, so I thought, “Hmm, what should I wear?”, so I went to the mall to see what I could find. I found the plaid blazer and I just had to get it. I thought “This would look amazing with a black pair of skinny jeans”, and so I purchased it. I didn’t even realize that the blazer matched the skirt until I brought it home. Haha. I had never worn a skirt suit before but I decided to try something new.

IMG_5894

So, how does one wear plaid? Well, I think it depends on what event you’re going to, or what look you’re trying to pull off.

The day I wore this outfit, I was trying to come up with a sophisticated look. This look can be worn to the office or a women’s conference. Throw on a nice pair of heels and you’re good to go.

fullsizeoutput_125e

If you’re going for a more casual look with plaids, consider pairing a plaid shirt with some skinny jeans. This type of outfit can be worn on an outing with friends or to the mall. This look will feel effortless.fullsizeoutput_12a5

If you’re someone who is more feminine, I would suggest pairing a plaid top with a leather skirt or high waisted trousers. You can put on some nice stilettos and a bright coloured purse to stand out.

fullsizeoutput_125a

This outfit really made me feel confident. I felt like I was the Prime Minister of Canada.

Whether you choose a larger check plaid print or you choose to mix and match, plaid is here to stay.

So get with the trends girl!

Crochet Fashion

One thing that is clear about me, is that, I love to express myself through my fashion. One day, I might be feeling really dark and I’ll decide to wear all black and the next day I’ll be feeling like a hippie and you’ll see me wearing a long crochet dress. The best thing about fashion, is that you can be anyone, you want to be. It’s the best feeling ever!

Today, I’ll be talking about Crochet Styles. Yes, crochet isn’t just about that hat that your great Aunt made for you, when you were 5 years old or that cover up that you wear to the beach. You can throw on a crochet top with jeans or a crochet skirt with a T- Shirt. It’s all about taking risks this summer.

IMG_5697

Yes, crochet is in style. This trend is very simple and easy to wear. Most people think that you can only wear crochet to the beach but that’s simply not the case. You can wear crochet styles to a bbq, festival or on a cute date.

IMG_5690

This weekend, my friends and I decided to go the TD Irie Fest in Mississauga, Canada. The festival showcases the Caribbean Culture. They had Caribbean food trucks, Jamaican clothing and reggae  music playing. It was so much fun!

IMG_5687

Before the festival, I wondered what I should wear. I wanted to look Caribbean, so I started perusing the internet looking for things. After looking at Forever 21 and other websites, I went to Zara and saw that they had a sale. I was so happy! I then saw this crochet  top and skirt on sale  and I decided to get it. I felt like the skirt and top really captured what I was going for.

IMG_5694

I liked the fact that the skirt and top were black but it had the Rastafarian colours of red, green and yellow. It reminded me of Jamaica (where I’m from), so much. I felt very cool and artsy. I felt like i was representing Jamaica.

IMG_5696

It was a very chilly day, so I decided to wear a denim jacket over the skirt and top. I wore sneakers that night because it rained during the day.

IMG_5699

The thing that I like the most about this outfit, is the simplicity. I don’t feel like I’m trying too hard and it was fit for the occasion. I felt like I took a risk with this and it paid off because I don’t normally wear things like this.

IMG_5688

I’m just trying to have fun this summer and try new things. I really had a tough time last year with my mom being sick, so now, I’m just trying to take everything in, explore, meet new people and just enjoy every moment.

T- Shirt Dresses

I’m not the type of girl who loves to wear tight clothes. Yeah, I’m weird. I think we can all agree to this. I used to though. I was the girl in the tightest high waisted skirts at church or the tightest dresses, where sometimes I couldn’t even  breathe properly. Now, I’ve changed.

fullsizeoutput_1039

I still wear some tight clothes occasionally but they’re never my first choice. Tight dresses just make me feel uncomfortable. I feel like I just want to  tear my clothes off and run around naked. You know what I’m saying?

fullsizeoutput_103c

I also don’t want guys to be staring at my boobs. I know lots of girls love that, but I don’t. I want to be liked for my personality, not my physical appearance.

fullsizeoutput_1038

So my solution to my problem is to dress like a tom boy sometimes. I got into wearing T shirt dresses after seeing Rihanna wearing it. I thought, “That looks so badass!”. So I decided to purchase one about 2 years ago and I’ve never looked back since. Haha.

fullsizeoutput_103a

T shirt dresses are very easy to wear. Throw one on and you’re good to leave the house. Ya’ll know how much of a lazy dresser I am, so this works perfectly. I don’t want to be zipping up anything or putting on jeans. Yikes!

fullsizeoutput_103d

I also like the fact that T shirt dresses are so chill and laid back. When I wear this I don’t feel like I’m trying too hard. I feel very relaxed. You can dress it up with heels or dress it down with sneakers.

fullsizeoutput_103e.jpeg

I chose my caged Justfab heels to wear with the dress because they made me feel badass. I also wanted to show my edgy side. I felt like I was Rihanna for a day! Fam, do you know how great that feels?

I’m all about dressing comfortably. If I can’t be comfortable, then what’s the point?

I’m not bashing people who like to wear tight clothes. Do you! But this is me.

Be your authentic self, always.

This dress is from Zara. It’s really affordable and I love the slogan on the front of it. You can shop it Here

Why I love Wearing Dresses

Dresses are my best friends! Yeah, I said it!. If you viewed my closet, you would see that 90 % of my clothes,  are dresses. There are red ones, black ones, blue ones, floral ones, every colour that you could imagine. I probably own 2 skirts. Haha, I’m a weirdo.ACS_0005

So, why do I love wearing dresses so much? Well, here’s why…..

1)It’s so easy – All you have to do is throw on a dress and go. YES, it’s that easy, no fuss, no stress. I’m lazy OK?.I like things that are easy, don’t you?

ACS_0004

2) Dresses make me look good – Have you ever passed  by a mirror and looked at yourself and said “Damn son, I LOOK GOOD’. Yeah, dresses make me feel like that. You should try it sometime.

ACS_0006

3) Skirts are the worst – Yo, I can’t deal with skirts. Like I can’t. When you buy a skirt you have to find the right top to go with it. You have to find the right type of skirt for your taste and style. Like hmm do I want to wear an ‘A’ line skirt or a pencil skirt. Or, hmm ‘A’ line skirts make me look fat so I’m not going to wear it. Lol, too much work.

ACS_0007

4) It lifts my mood – One day when I was feeling down I tried on a red dress in my closet and I instantly felt better. Instantly, I just started smiling and laughing.

ACS_0010

5) I like showing off my legs – Ok, so I have nice legs, I get compliments on them all the time. Wearing pants doesn’t allow me to do that, hence why I love wearing dresses.

ACS_0008

6) Dresses make me feel free – I don’t know why, but when I wear a dress, I feel free. I can feel the wind on my legs. I can feel the sun on my skin. Dresses just makes me feel happy and free.

Look, I’m not telling anyone to love or wear dresses. I love them because of the reasons above.Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable, whether that’s jeans, or skirts or if you feel like wearing an outfit straight off the runway. Or, if you feel like wearing sweatpants.

Be your authentic self always.

My dress is from Zara. I bought it last December but unfortunately it’s not in stock anymore. However, you can find similar ones Here

Trend Spotting : Pantsuits

Perhaps, you thought that the era of pantsuits was over, well, you thought wrong.

It’s official, pants suits are back! Yes, matching your blazer with your pants is in style again. Yass honey! Grab that pantsuit that’s tucked away at the back of your closet hun.

Celebrities have been spotted all over wearing this trend, in varying styles and colours.You can see this trend frequently on celebrities like Bella Hadid, Tracee Ellis Ross and Beyonce.

Processed with VSCO with kk1 preset

 

So, where did this trend begin? Well, in 1850, Amelia Bloomer, a women’s rights activist popularized the “bloomer pant” aka the baggy pant created by Elizabeth Smith Miller. By the 20th century, women’s pants were only appropriate for “occasional dressing only”.

Processed with VSCO with kk1 preset

By the 1920’s and 30’s celebrities dared to wear full pantsuits to movie premieres. Pants, were deemed as men’s wear. Ordinary women were fined for wearing pants. Women in the United States were barred from wearing pants on the senate floor until 1993 when the “Pantsuit Rebellion” overturned that rule.

Processed with VSCO with kk1 preset

Today, the pantsuit is used to make a statement of power for women. It’s showing the world that  women matter and we have a voice. We can now be on equal footing with men in the workplace.

Processed with VSCO with kk1 preset

There are so many variations of pantsuits right now.There are  bright colours like read, pink and yellow. The blazers are structured differently now, instead of shoulder pads there are  peplum blazers, kimono blazers etc.

Processed with VSCO with kk1 preset

Some of the blazers now have patterns like gingham, florals and checkers.

Processed with VSCO with kk1 preset

I bought this pantsuit, a year ago from Zara. My best friend was graduating from University and I wanted to wear something sophisticated but cool. It was winter so I didn’t want to wear a dress so I chose a suit.  I mean, who wants to be outside trembling in the cold? Definitely not me.

Processed with VSCO with kk1 preset

The color of the suit is army green and it’s really light weight. You can wear it on a sunny day and not feel over heated. The pants are high waisted and the blazer has buttons on the front in case you want to button up.

Processed with VSCO with kk1 preset

The price was reasonable and I didn’t have to break the bank. I think I purchased this suit for about $120 in total. Cheap, I know right? And people say that Zara is expensive. Haha, that’s funny.

I know, pantsuits can be tricky, you have to find the right size and make sure the pants are tailored to your liking. You can either dress it up with heels or down with sneakers.This suit makes me feel like a girl boss. It makes me feel like I can do anything I set my mind to.

Are you going  to a wedding or work function this weekend? Why don’t you try something new? Try a pantsuit instead of a dress. As drake would say ,”You only live once”.

You can find similar suits  Here

What sort of clothing makes you feel empowered? What style have you wanted to try but didn’t have the courage to?
