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 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.

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

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

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

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.
