This is my “art student well-versed in post modern art history” look. I wore this look to see the Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibition at AGO and I felt so fresh and so clean clean. Very into baggy pants right now. It all began with the purchase of mom jeans but now I’ve moved on to these perfectly tailored peg leg trousers by Topshop. If you are also tired of skinny jeans/jeggings and boyfriend jeans are too casual/hobo for you, loose trousers can be your best friend.
I will probably move on to culottes next…if you have any recommendations, please comment below!
P.S. If I’m not blogging I’m on instagram or tumblr so feel free to creep me on there <_<
Scored this coat at 50% off the sale price at forever21.com last week. It’s not a very practical coat, which is probably why it’s not sold out yet, but it’s definitely a show-stopper. It was one of those “I didn’t know I wanted it but now that I see it I need it” kind of purchases. The AW x HM boots finally make an appearance on here. These boots were everything I wished for, all black, 100% leather, rubber sole, and zip detail. I wore this to see Birdman yesterday after watching the Golden Globes and hearing all the Oscar hype surrounding the film. The film is described as a dark comedy about an actor — famous for portraying a superhero — struggling with his now stagnant career. I really enjoyed it, there was a mix of drama, comedy, and action, and the characters were very relatable. I highly recommend seeing it while it’s still in theatres. I’ll leave you with this trailer.
Going along with the Uniforms theme, today’s repeat piece is the wilfred top I wore in my previous post. I think owning a black faux leather skirt is a staple in a 20-something girl’s wardrobe. Whether it’s midi or mini, it’s definitely one of my go-to night out looks. I plan on wearing this evening look later tonight when I grab drinks with a couple of friends at Cold Tea to wind down before the 8-hour studying days begin. Speaking of studying , I should really get back to that.
I decided to create a new segment called Uniforms to see how versatile my wardrobe can be. Each uniform outfit post will have an item that I wore in the previous post. I don’t think it’s a crime to wear the same item two days in a row… so that’s what we’re gunna do.
One thing I love about Canadian weather is the constantly changing temperature…from 4 degrees in the morning to 18 degrees by the afternoon. This kind of weather calls for light layering. I decided to pair two of my most prized possessions, my talula sweater and wilfred leggings, to contrast the texture and tones of the different pieces. To be honest, the faux leather leggings aren’t the most comfortable but I highly recommend checking out this asymmetrical knit sweater at the next Aritzia sale.
