The Best Types of Boots to Wear for Fall

The weather in Canada is always fluctuating. Just one day last week, it was 15 degrees, then the next day, it was hailing. Can you believe it?  Fall is so confusing. To wear layers or not to wear layers? To wear a heavy jacket or to wear a light jacket? Boots or sneakers?

Today, I want to discuss the best types of Boots to wear for Fall. I don’t wear sneakers during fall because I find that my feet get really cold. Does that happen to you? Or is it just me? Yes, so I only wear boots, to church, to work, to hang out with my friends. So lets’s discuss..

1 Combat boots- These are are my favourite types of boots to wear for fall. They are very functional and good for a busy lifestyle. You know, when you have to drop your kid off at school, or do a grocery run. The best thing thing about them, is that, they are so comfortable. The ones that I’m wearing in the picture below are velvet with coloured laces which give a punk rock vibe. And I love looking like a punk rock girl. The boots are from Forever 21, you can shop them Here

2 Ankle Boots – I wear these everywhere. Sometimes I don’t even care if they go with my outfit. I just love them. These are leather patented boots and they are great for fall. They are not too high and can be worn in the office or out on the town. These boots add a layer of sophistication to your outfit. They look like balenciaga sock boots right? These are from Justfab.com. They are probably 2 years old.

3 Tall Heeled Boots –  I bought these boots 2 years ago. The heels are very skinny but I needed something that could keep the cold away from my legs so I thought these would be the perfect fit. And they are! I mostly wear these to church and they keep my upper legs so warm! These are from Shoedazzle.com

Boots are the best option for me for fall. I don’t know how I’d survive if I didn’t own them! The weather in Canada is brutal man! I wouldn’t encourage anyone to live here. Ha, I’m kidding. Canada is great!

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.

Fall Fashion Trends You Won’t See Me Wearing

I’m a trend whore!  Yes I am. As soon as a new trend comes out, I’m on it like hot chocolate and milk. Like bread and butter. Get it? But ,there are certainly some trends that you won’t see me wearing! Unfortunately, not everything looks good on me OK?

AfterlightImage

This Fall season is about taking being noticed and fierce animal attraction. All across the runway I see Neons, Animal prints, snakeskin styles…. so much to choose from! Here’s a list of the trends that you most likely will never see me in

1. Neon –  This one is just not for me. The only bright colours that I like are red and yellow. I just can’t see myself in Neon green and neon pink. I hate attention and this would be too much. Imagine me in neon orange. Yeah, I can’t imagine that either.

2.Animal print – Animal print is all over. I mean, every time I sign into instagram I see some influencer in animal print. It looks great on them but I can’t see myself in head to toe animal print. In fact, I don’t really like prints in general. Maybe I’d consider wearing an animal print bag or even a scarf. Little things you know?

3.Clueless Plaid – This trend looks really cool but too many bright colours for me. It’s just not my taste. I prefer normal plaids like red or green.

These are the trends that you will never see me in. I mean maybe one day I’ll change my mind but for now I don’t see myself in these things.

Never say Never they say.

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.

AfterlightImage

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.

AfterlightImage

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.

AfterlightImage

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.

My dress is from Zara, you can shop it Here

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…

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 I take my Outfit Photos

AfterlightImageHey guys! Welcome back to my blog! I was supposed to post on Sunday but I was just enjoying the last day of summer. I went to 2 BBQS in one day! I had so much fun!

Today, I want to touch on How I take my Blog photos.

As I look at the newest Vogue Magazine cover and look at people like Bella Hadid posing, I wonder, “How the hell do you look this good?”. And then I go cry in my room. I’m kidding, but in the last 6 months since starting this blog I finally feel like I know how to take my blog photos! Finally!

AfterlightImage

So how do I take my Outfit photos for my blog? How do I pose? Keep reading….

1 Find Someone who you’re comfortable with – Look I’m not saying that I can’t work with someone that I’m not comfortable with but at the beginning of starting this blog I started with someone who I wasn’t comfortable with and it showed in my photos. I’m not blaming the person but I needed direction and I wasn’t really getting that. I’m grateful that they wanted to help me. I wanted tips like “Turn your head this way, or that looks better”. I didn’t get that. And again I’m not blaming the person but I think I was just trying to figure it out. I mean, it doesn’t make sense to take 50 photos but only like one out of the bunch. Now, my mom takes my photos and I feel very comfortable and I also use my tripod as well and I can actually see how I’m posing.

AfterlightImage

2 Find somewhere to place your hands – This was hard for me at the beginning. My hands are really long OK? I never really know where to place them. One day, my best friend came over and gave me some tips. She said, “Just find somewhere to place your hands other than your side”. From then on I started placing  them in my hair, on my knees etc.

AfterlightImage

3 Know your Angles –  For me the left side of my face is my good side. When posing for the camera I mostly  turn my head to the left side. It just works visually better for me. Also holding the camera high, it makes you look skinnier. Whenever my mom takes my photos I always remind her to hold the camera up. Sometimes she gets annoyed HAHA but I love my mom.

AfterlightImage

4 Look at how other people pose – I got tired of the way how I posed, so I saw an Article on Who What Wear that literally said, “New Poses You Should Try’, and I was like God, is this you? I studied how the people posed, and I decided to try that bending down one that all the insta models do a couple of weeks ago  and I really liked the result. Yes, not every pose works for everyone but test out which ones work.

AfterlightImage

5 Practice facial expressions in the mirror – When I’m too serious my photos don’t look great so I find that smiling or smirking works best. Looking away from the camera also gives a good vibe as if you’re reflecting on something.

AfterlightImage

6 Lighting is Everything – Whether you’re taking your photos inside, or outside, lighting matters. In the summertime, I like to take my photos in the mornings at 9am on Sundays. Early mornings are when the sun is brightest. I wake up at 8, get dressed  apply my makeup and take my photos. When I’m indoors I turn my room light on and I also have another light that I put beside my tripod that helps my photos look bright.

Yes, so these are the things that I’ve learned in the 6 months that I’ve been blogging. Am I an expert? No, but this is my personal experience and I’m still learning everyday. I’m also finally getting more  comfortable in front of the camera. It’s taken me 6 months can you believe it? But everything takes time, even Bella Hadid said it the other day in an interview that she’s just now learning her angles, and she’s been modelling for awhile now.

The moral of this story? Things take time and that’s OK.

My dress is from Zara, I bought it 2 years ago so I don’t think they have it anymore but you can find similar ones Here
