Ombre Stripes

Apparently I am atrocious at managing my outfit of the day posts because I can never seem to upload them on the day I actually wear them! Here’s an outfit from a few weeks back; whenever I’m feeling uninspired I always default back to black and white and the ombre stripes on this skirt adds just enough edge to an otherwise basic look!   DSCN1398-2 DSCN1434 DSCN1417

It’s safe to say that this blog post is long overdue! Been a little M.I.A in the last two months mostly due to course work and well, life in general but I am going to make a much more conscious effort to blog from now on! Anyway,  this outfit of the day is more like outfit of sometime last month; I just haven’t had a chance to get these photos up until now. I think the ladybug print on this shirt-dress (now on sale at The Gap) is just the perfect touch of casual and fun for a sunny day!

Spring is finally here and I am so glad to trade in the ankle boots for pumps and open-toed wedges! I was recently looking at a Olivia Palmero fashion blog and decided to re-create one of her outfits. She paired navy polka dot skinnys with royal blue pumps effortlessly, and kept it casual with a cropped leather jacket. I think it’s the perfect look for those days you just want to dress a bit down but still look put-together, wish just a dash of colour!

Springtide

Although spring technically isn’t until the 20th of this month, the sunshine we were blessed with over the weekend definitely felt like springtime is just around the corner! That is, until you stepped out of the sunshine. It certainly wasn’t warm enough for bare legs, which is why I opted for tights underneath my maxi dress and layered my spring pieces to create the perfect blend of warmth without feeling weighed down by the last fragments of winter!

Neon

All the craze this year seems to be over green. Precisely emerald green, or mint green (a la Katy Perry’s keyhole cut-out dress at the 2013 Grammys). But have we forgotten about neon green? I think this highlighter shade is the perfect pop of colour for an all black ensemble, and it’s sure to make you stand out (in a good way) amidst the February showers!

Fog

For the last few days, my neighbourhood has looked like a scene straight out of The Mist. The fog has been so dense and I guess the gray tones in the sky found it’s way into my outfit, paired with a soft floral!

Brisk

Winter is always the worst season for being stylish because it’s nearly impossible to be practical and fashionable at the same time. But luckily, the weather was a nice brisk temperature today and at the end of an otherwise gloomy day, the sun graced us with its presence for a few moments as it set – just enough time for a few quick photos! It just so happens that I was decked out in BR gear today – one of my most favourite brands.
