zara leather jacket | aritzia mesh top | topshop pants | shellys london heels

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¬†<_<

Some (all) people would call me a shoe-aholic. But I’m trying to live that minimalist life right now so I haven’t purchased shoes in a couple(lol) months. When Capezio shoes contacted me to tell me that I won their MTV Fora giveaway, I was literally astounded. Girls/guys, that’s 6 pairs of new shoes. Not to mention, I ordered 2 pairs of sandals the previous night so 8. pairs. of. new. shoes. These Shellys London sneaker heels were one of the prizes and they are seriously glowing right now. So amaze. Wow. I have to thank the shoe gods, Capezio Shoes and MTV Fora for making my shoe dreams come true!

And yes, hair is shorter. I love the asymmetrical one-length cut that my hair stylist from the Aveda hair school did. I’m still figuring out how I should style it but I’m probably the laziest person with my hair so airdrying4ever.¬†

 

 

uniform no. 7 : neoprene desires

banana republic jacket | topshop top | forever 21 necklace | h&m velvet trousers | zara heels 

Last week, a few friends and I went to Snakes and Lagers¬†to relax and get our game on.¬†If you have heard of Snakes and Lattes, it’s a similar concept except it’s a bar where you can play board games and grab a drink, the perfect pairing.

I felt like wearing my new Topshop top made of a neoprene-esque material that day. I’ve been lusting after a structured white top and this fulfilled all my *structured* and *minimalist*¬†desires. I really like the classic t-shirt and pants look for a casual evening out. And the heels totally speak for themselves.¬†

cheap thrills

You know that feeling when you are just browsing a¬†random store, and there’s an amazing deal that you just can’t pass up? Yeah, that happened to me at every store I went to. When I went back home a couple of weeks ago, my friend and I decided to go thrifting. After 20 minutes of rummaging through the wracks, I stumbled upon this 100% leather “made in Britain” cross body purse. It was everything I wanted and for a measly $4, I snatched it right up.¬†

One of my favourite new items is the crisp white crop top from Garage. I love the unique crossover cut of the top which can be paired with every high waisted bottom ever. It’s still on sale for $6 on the website so ch-ch-check it out.

And Forever 21 had a buy one get one on their sale items, so who can resist that?

uniform no. 6 : don’t mesh with me

I have an obsession with tops that have a lot of holes in them. I currently own 4 mesh tops‚Ķand I have no regrets. They spice up any old outfit and adds some interest to the look.¬†I especially love this black mesh top because of the simple t-shirt cut and the beautiful crochet detailing at the front. It can be dressed up with a skirt or dressed down with jeans or leggings or *jeggings*¬†as I have done. I can’t seem to find a similar black mesh top to mine online but Nasty Gal carries a white version that is just as cool.

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‚Ķfrom 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.

Until next time,
