Summer Style Inspiration

Screen Shot 2015-05-31 at 11.12.08 AM

It’s time for some wardrobe inspiration. I often get myself in a re-wear and over-wear rut, but standing in the centre of Yonge and Dundas on a daily basis has given me the swift kick in the bum I need to bring my daily wardrobe to par. I’ve picked up a few great pieces in the last week or so, especially from H&M, but it’s time to delve into the online world to inspire the remainder of my summer look – The great thing is that my casual daily fashion is great for my workplace too, no need for two completely separate wardrobes.

Here are a few things I’ve found that I’d like to use as inspiration for the upcoming summer months:

1. Topshop Fringe Tunic

2. Topshop KARMA Metal Buckle Loafers $99.05

3. ALDO Kiawiel $80.00

4. H&M Harem Pants $19.95

5. H&M Maxi Dress $29.99

6. ASOS Selected Romana Wrap Front Dress $126.94

7. ALDO Kaoven Wedged Sandals $70.00

8. ASOS Maxi Kimono with Side Split $76.17

9. Topshop Cord and Metal Bar Multi-Row Necklace $26.67

10. ASOS Weekday Clean Edge High Neck Sleeveless Top $57.12

Hopefully after a few weeks of saving those dolla dolla bills I can venture forth and splurge on the summer wardrobe! For now I’ve got a great foundation and am so so so happy that I get to be creative and experiment with fashion everyday! No more uniform for me (hopefully forever!!)

What fashion trends are you loving this season?

OOTD #2 and WOMF – Christmas in January

Image

As I’ve mentioned before I work for a large Canadian food service company. Seeing as December is the busiest time of year for us, we celebrate Christmas and the New Year in January. This past Saturday was our ‘Far East’ themed staff celebration at a large convention centre in Hamilton. It was one of the most extravagant events that I’ve ever been to. It was amazing!!! The decorations, the food, the drinks, the outfits, etc. I had so much fun!! But of course the best part of a night like this is getting ready!! I haven’t had the chance to dress up in such a long time! It was wonderful!!!

Starting with the outfit:

– TFNC London Dress from Topshop

– Beige Froguil Shoes from Aldo
