How to Wear Layers for Fall

Fall is upon us and it’s really cold outside. I don’t know where you live, but in Canada it feels like winter already. With the dropped temperatures it’s time for scarves, sweaters and boots. It’s time to layer up!  The only thing with layers is that, sometimes you get too hot, but I’d rather be hot than cold. You know what I’m saying?Today, I want to show you some really fashionable ways to wear layers.

For this look, I wore a nude coat over my outfit as a cape. It really made the outfit pop.  and incorporated colour into my all black ensemble. It made my outfit look really high fashion. A black coat would have made the outfit boring.

Under the coat, I wore a black blazer, this really provided a lot of warmth as I was only wearing a tank top underneath. The blazer was double breasted and it looked really smart on me.

I also wore a really thick grey scarf to keep out the cold from my neck. This I bought from H&M a year ago.

There are so many ways that you can layer up for fall. You can wear cardigans under your jacket, scarves, sweatshirts with an added shirt underneath, so many ways!

Are you layering up? Or are you someone who likes the cold and doesn’t care about being warm? Comment below.

How Blogging Has Helped Me With my Wardrobe

Blogging is one of my favourite  creative outlets. I’ve been thinking about starting a blog but I didn’t know where to start but I did my research and here I am today. It’s been a fun ride of strategizing and figuring things out and I’m still learning everyday but I’m happy that I started.

Today, I’ll be sharing the ways blogging has helped me with my wardrobe in the last 6 months.

These are the ways that blogging has helped me with my wardrobe in the last 6 months

1 I’ve learned to utilize the clothes in my closet – Look, if I was rich I’d buy clothes all the time, but I’m not rich OK? Blogging has helped me really search and make use of the clothes in my closet. Now I feel like I’m a stylist or something because I’m so good at putting together outfits now. I just use the clothes in my closet and make them fashionable! And I save that way.

2 I think I became more stylish – I was always into fashion, but now I feel like my outfits are more elevated. Now, I feel like they are more put together and thought out. It makes me feel like I’m just coming off the runway.AfterlightImage

3 I’m more organized now – I’m the least organized person, but blogging has gotten me colour coordinating my closet and all that. I have to stay organized so that I can find my outfits. All my jeans are in one place now, where I can find them. My life is easy now.

4 It’s helped me figure out what fits and what has to go – On a weekly basis I take maybe 50 photos to post throughout the week. Blogging has helped me figure out what clothes look good on me and what has to go. I mean, the pictures show everything and I mean Everything. So now my closet isn’t piled up with clothes that don’t look good or don’t fit me anymore. Thanks blogging.

Yes, so these are all the ways that blogging has helped me improve my wardrobe. Going into this I didn’t think that I would learn so much in 6 months,  but I’m happy for the lessons. Blogging is hard work, but I enjoy it.

One Blouse, 3 Ways

IMG_8308

“I have nothing to wear”. Have you ever uttered those words before? I know, I have. Sometimes it’s just hard to find clothes ok? I wish I was one of those rich,  celebrities who have an infinite number of clothes you know? Life would be so much easier! But, I’m not rich, so I have to make do with what I have. You can always make a brand new outfit out of the clothes, that you do own. Make it work girl. Today I’ll be showing you how I styled One Blouse in 3 ways.

 

So I bought this top about a year ago and this is how I styled it in 3 ways.

Blouse with Jeans

I styled the top with jeans from forever 21. These are some of my favourite jeans because it’s embroidered with pizza on it. It’s just different and I like different. This style can be worn on a night out with friends or a party. I purchased these jeans about 3 years ago, so they are sold out, but you can purchase similar ones Here. The blouse is from Zara but it’s a year old but you can find similar ones Here

Blouse with A Skirt

This look can be worn to church. The plaid skirt is from H&M. I really like this look because it’s very sophisticated. The green blouse  makes the outfit pop. The skirt is old but you can find similar styles Here

Blouse with Trousers

This look can be worn to the office. The pants are pinstriped and are from this local store called Suzy shier in my community. You change shoes and put on stilettos or flats.

Yes, so this is how I styled this blouse in 3 different ways. You don’t have to be rich or have plenty of clothes to look fashionable. You can work with what you have. Instead of spending money all the time to buy new clothes, just style the ones you have differently. It’s easy!

My Favourite Stores to Shop At And Why

” You only shop at 3 stores in the mall, what?”, my brother asks in disbelief. Yes, I only shop at like 3 stores. I don’t know, I’m just hard to please. You know what I’m saying? It’s taken me a long time to figure out what I like, but I think I’ve finally found what I really like…. Keep Reading…

fullsizeoutput_1c0e

Everyone probably likes these stores but here they are….

1 Zara – Look Zara just gets me, or I get Zara? I don’t know but it’s my favourite store. I like that the pieces are so elegant and fashionable. Every time I wear something from Zara, I feel like I’m on the runway. I can find pieces for church, or a casual day out. I know some people have said that Zara is very expensive and yes some items are but you can find affordable items for 20$ and even less. You just gave to search.

2 Forever 21 – I like Forever 21 because they always have lots of different styles of jeans. Yes, jeans! I love jeans ok? I have like 20 pairs of jeans and most of them are from Forever21. They also have really cute summer clothes

3 H&M – This store is a good place to find work outfits. They sell a lot of blazers and dress pants for affordable prices

Justfab – I love buying all my shoes from Justfab. They have so many styles!

I love these stores the most. They just have the types of clothes that I love to wear. Do I shop at other stores sometimes? Yes, but I always come back to these ones. They’re my favourite ok? Will I ever find new favourite stores, yes I just have to keep looking.

My blazer is from Forever 21, it’s really long so I wore it as a dress. I bought it about a year ago so they don’t have that olive colour anymore but they have it in cream. You can shop it Here

How to Transition from Summer to Autumn Fashion

Autumn is quickly approaching can you believe it? I know, I can’t believe it either! It makes me sad that summer is leaving us.  I know that some of you are excited for sweater weather but I’m not.Summer is my favourite season ok? With autumn coming it’s time to change things up!

AfterlightImage

Here are some tips on How to Transition from Summer to Autumn Fashion.

Layer, Layer, Layer– The best way to transition from summer to autumn is by layering. So if you have a sleeveless dress like I do in this picture it’s best to layer with a light coat or leather jacket to keep out the chill. Don’t go overboard though.I’ve had this coat for about 2 years now and whenever it’s chilly I just throw it over my outfits.

AfterlightImage

Wear Stilettos  And Boots Instead of Sandals – This is a no brainer, but when it starts to get cold I stop wearing my heeled sandals. I mean, do you like it when your toes are cold? Because I don’t.

AfterlightImage

Wear Neutral Colours– Autumn is about neutrals and dark colours. As the picture above I like to wear tans, browns, burgundy etc. I don’t really wear bright colours like yellow and green in Autumn. I mean, you can if you want to, it’s always good to break the rules. But I guess the dark colours go with the gloomy weather? Haha

AfterlightImage

Add tights to Dresses – Tights keep you warm in Autumn so stock up on them. Whenever I go to my local dollar store I always get 5 packs, so they can last a long time.

AfterlightImage

Wear Scarves – In Canada, it always gets really cold by October. A good way to combat this cold is by wearing a scarf. Last year, I purchased a really nice thick one from H&M, and I have no regrets.

Yeah, so that’s how I transition from Summer to Autumn. I like Autumn Fashion but I prefer Summer. I just love the sun and I love letting my legs breathe.

I bought this dress years ago from H&M but you can find similar ones Here

I also bought this coat a couple years ago but here’s a similar one in the link Here

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

Note : All these words are my own thoughts.

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

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.
