Light as air

August 11, 2011

Pink is my favorite color, there’s no doubt. It always looks good! From either extremely hot pink to pale soft pink, it’s always gorgeous. Pink floral prints, pink polka dots, there’s not comparison.  Needless to say, there is a lot of pink in my wardrobe.

I love how these nail strips turned out. They are fun, but easy to pair with outfits. It’s just the right hint of color.

Wearing Forever21 Shirt, H&M Scarf and Jeans

My outfit was comfortable, but cute in its own way. I love this scarf, but sadly don’t wear it that often. The pink flowers are what draws me to it, and paired with a loose top they work perfectly with sleepy mornings. Oh, how I am ready for the weekend!!

And just for fun, here’s an out-take when my cat became interested….

Beat the heat

August 3, 2011

In high summer, there’s nothing like a long, flowing maxi skirt to keep you cool. I love this patterned skirt not only for its lovely shades of green, but because it has two hidden pockets. Perfect for hiding treasures while you explore, or a pair of sunglasses while wandering in and out of shops.

Head to toe H&M excluding Delux fedora, Fossil watch, Spring ring, and Toms

This little ring is one of my favorites lately. It pairs perfectly with blue or green tones, as well as floral prints. And I just realized now that my nails kind of match the skirt, both are a broken shattered pattern!

I hope you’re having a great week, and going on your own adventures in the sun!

Over the weekend

August 1, 2011

Just a brief post to get back into the swing of blogging again. I have had a very busy summer so far, volunteering at a summer camp, training for a new job, and going on adventures wherever I can. I recently bought a new camera, and I can’t wait to experiment with it and hopefully update this blog more!

Here are a few pictures of my weekend. I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely summer weather, as I sure am!

Summer seems to have only just arrived, so I hope to capture all the summer outfits I have been dieing to wear and will post them here soon. See you soon!

I’d wear that

February 28, 2011

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.

We got a big dump of snow that kept me inside, but I did get to watch the Oscars! My favorite dress of the night was on Mila Kunis. She wore a stunning Elie Saab lilac dress with gorgeous details, and she looked amazing! If I could have any one of the fabulous dresses worn last night in my wardrobe, it would be this one!!

Purple is one of my favorite colors lately. Not only did I paint my room a deep purple (with white accents), but I also wore lilac purple to my high school grad.

Well back to reality, and work for another week. See you soon!

So if you didn’t notice, I couldn’t quite get the posts up this week that I wanted. Work has been crazy, and the weather not so nice so I didn’t get a chance to photograph the outfits I had planned. However, I did snap some quick pictures of the outfits anyways in a make-shift studio (aka my room).

 

This first outfit is a casual but cute outfit you could wear to work, or out on a date. Paired with flats or heels, it’s fun and showcases my love of Polaroids.

T-shirt and Skirt- H&M

The next outfit is casual but cute. I could see myself wearing it on my day off to run errands, or to meet up with some girl friends. I would pair this outfit with flats or little jazz shoes. You can still have fun on Valentines day with some of your closest friends!!!!

Tank top, Boyfriend Blazer and Jeans – H&M, Vintage Coach purse

If you are looking for something a bit more dressed up, or to impress a certain someone, I would wear a sexy little dress like this one. Paired with simple accessories, it will be sure to catch their attention.

Dress and Heart Purse – H&M, Steve Madden Heels

What are your plans for this lovely Valentines weekend? I am going to celebrate with the city of Vancouver as it is the one year anniversary of the 2010 Winter Olympics. There will be lots of free events happening down town, including street hockey and free skating! Hope your weekend is fun as well, and have a Happy Valentines!

What’s not to love?

February 7, 2011

I know Valentines day is one of those weird holiday’s that people either love or loathe. I personally think it’s kind of fun. I mean if you take it as a fun day where you can appreciate all the love in your life, enjoy some candy and the many lovely shades of red and pink, then it’s not so bad right?

I love all the cute little things that come out around Valentines day. Anyone see these red Heartbeat headphones by Lady Gaga?

Or these awesome Chuck Taylor’s?

Other item’s I wouldn’t mind scooping up before V-Day include these sunglasses…..

a set of Marc Jacob’s pencils (found exclusively at BookMarc)….

This gorgeous Dolce & Gabanna compact…..

or a pair of sparkly pink Tom’s for the girly girl in me!

I have a few Valentines inspired outfits I would like to share with you this week, which aren’t hard to create with my wardrobe. So if you’re looking for a cute dinner date outfit, something casual for the weekend or something a little different, check back and see what I come up with!

Simplicity

February 5, 2011

Lately I have really been enjoying a good, comfy hoodie. I haven’t had the urge to buy one since high school, but when I pulled all my old ones out they are all thin and worn in. Which is fine, but in the winter you want something thing thick and cozy to keep you warm.

I found this nice gray one at Aritzia on sale after christmas so I thought, why not? It has now become one of my favorite go-to sweaters in the morning. It keeps me warm, and I can even wear it over dresses at work. The pockets sure do come in handy! I kind of love how a simple hoodie can still look good layered over a super girly dress….

Outfit details: Hoodie-Talula, Dress & Belt-H&M, Ring-Betsey Johnson

dreaming of better weather

February 2, 2011

I kind of hate the transition between seasons. Don’t get me wrong, I like all the cute layers that come with chilly late summer evenings and the first glimpse of sun on late winter days. But misty rain and the transition from hot to cold sure sucks! I wish it would just instantly be sunny and clear or cold and snowy, non of this  in between crap.

Since it was so rainy last week, I decided to buy a new sweater to live in until spring. I love these TNA raglan sweater tops. They are made of a comfy fine knit material that stretch and keep you just warm enough inside without being too hot. I have them in 4 colors at the moment. I picked this striped one up because I don’t really have many striped items in my wardrobe. Plus it looks super cute with this little hat.

Outfit details: Striped sweater top-TNA, long tank top;black jeggings;faux leather jacket;cloche-H&M, purse-Kensie, Boots-Dirty Laundry

As the weather gets better each week, I’m already starting to look in my spring/summer clothing that has been hidden away and trying to incorporate it into my current wardrobe. Thank goodness for leggings and cardigans!!
