Sport Chic (Montréal)

I was pretty tomboy growing up. I’ve never had hair past my shoulders, and only wore sneakers and shorts pretty much until my senior high school years.  It’s not that I thought long wavy hair, lipsticks and pink teddy bears were weird – they just weren’t me. If we fast forward some time, though my style now is different, it’s not the opposite. It is generally feminine, but my tomboy years certainly left some trace as I’m a bit of a rocker girl, and am also into cute sporty looks. My top may look like a sweater but I’d consider it a shirt because it’s actually so thin! This was about $13 from H&M, what a steal! 🙂 I was instantly drawn by the sporty feel combined with the eye catching blue. You can already tell that it isn’t a crop top, but a tied up knot secured by my hair band. But as I mentioned in previous posts, I like to  wear pieces in different ways, depending on how I feel that day, and on this day, I thought making this a …

Dress Over Pants?

Have difficulty embracing the Dress Over Pants trend? You definitely aren’t alone. It just isn’t what dresses are for! I decided to give it a chance because you’ll never know some things until you try. I don’t have a lot of long loose tops, but I managed to pair my ripped white jeans with this casual collared dress from H&M. This was an easy match also because light blue + white color combination is admittedly pleasant to the eyes. I wasn’t feeling adventurous with the shoes so I went with a safe selection – my trusty nude sandals. I agree some black strap heels would have worked as well but I wanted the focus to be on the outfit rather than attention grabbing heels. Isn’t this a beautiful little purse? This is one of Kate Spade’s Lemon design series. I love it not only because of the unique design, but also the white/dark blue/tan color theme which I personally think work amazing together. In terms of the accessories, I consistently teamed with gold – necklace was gold, and there were hints of gold in my …

White Coat, Black Dress, Them Collars

Hello beautifuls! If you have seen my earlier post – My Spring Coat, I presented a look which I consider as street style. Here I am back with another way to wear my spring coat. This one is girly 🙂  I’m sure you could have worn any dress inside and it would work fine, but I felt specifically a collar dress works best because the coat’s collar area is extremely simple, and having collars inside would bring attention to that area without it looking too busy. This also gave it a preppy feel, so to bring consistency, I  paired it with some glasses! Another reason I chose this dress, was that its length is about the same as the coat! I can’t quite pinpoint the reason why this is a good thing, but it just looks odd to me if the inside is much longer or shorter than the coat. I wore a pretty necklace under the collar to dress it up, and wore a black watch to match the black & white theme.

My Spring Coat

Hello beautifuls! Spring has arrived! Temperature is rising, trees are blooming and birds are singing! But – it’s still not summer, so you still need a coat! To be honest, I had to really make up my mind getting this jacket – it is $80 from H&M. You may know already that I love H&M, their stuff matched correctly look amazing, but I was still hesitant with the price. HOWEVER – after I started wearing it – I grew to love it more and more! I can’t express why exactly I like it, because logically 1. It doesn’t accentuate my figure, 2. The color gets dirty easily and 3. It’s really not that warm x) But hey, a girl doesn’t always need a reason to buy something – as long as she FEELS fabulous.

Fall Chic

Hi lovelies! This was actually a very cold day! But I decided to sacrifice myself for the blog. They were taken nowhere fancy – near my neighborhood 🙂 Here I have a black romper with collar from from a boutique on Queen St, Toronto, matched with a royal blue blazer from H&M, and black ankle heels from Aldo. Cool thing about the romper is definitely the back! Super funky rectangle cutout. It’s a bold look showing back like this, but I considered it versatile because I can simply throw on a top with it, or blazer.   Here’s me trying to pose like a model.  The model shoot continues. I matched my with white leaf earrings for some contrast – they are my current absolute favorites, you will probably see more of them in my future posts. xx.
