I am very late to the bandwagon but I’m living the dream in these black culottes. The important advantages of sporting these super wide-leg cropped pants:

1. Elastic waistband for all-you-can-eat buffets.

2. Crepe-like material that does not wrinkle for people that hate ironing.

3. Keeps you easy, breezy, beautiful. Perfect for summer.

Some other ones I have my eye on…

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 <_<

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtlenecks

It looks like a winter wonderland out there. Literally took off my down coat for 30 seconds to shoot this in -20°C weather. This Gap turtleneck sweater has been getting me through the hard times. Also it’s on sale so I probably need to buy them in all the colours. Jk kinda. Please give me all the baggy oversized xs but looks like xxl sweaters. Also fleece-lined tights from Ardene was one of my top discoveries of 2014 courtesy of my lovely roomie, Aru. I don’t know how I survived winter without them before. One of my top discoveries of 2015 so far is this website. I love cats.

Wishing everyone the best for 2015!  ♡ॢ₍⸍⸌̣ʷ̣̫⸍̣⸌₎

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.

Oh, the beloved docs. I coveted Dr. Martens boots for ages, ever since I saw them on my #1 favourite 90’s MTV show, Daria. When Christmas rolled around last year, Santa (aka my significant other) graced me with these beauties. I had a hard time narrowing down my choices since there is such a wide selection of styles. From the classic 1460’s to the grungy Jadon’s, I was at a loss of which pair to choose until I laid eyes on the Casey’s with the 2 inch heel — I was sold. Coolness factor = 10, height factor = 11. There’s also another heeled boot style called Clemency that’s also super kewlz.

I highly recommend Daria if you think cynical/sarcastic/pessimistic humour is funny and if you loved/hated high school. This pretty much sums up the series.

(Watch my other fav character from the show: ~Tiffany~)

uniform no. 2: evening leather

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.

Until next time,

Adrianne
