Tying The Knot

One thing I’ve recently found can really change a top is tying it. This is especially useful in the spring and summer when high-wasted bottoms are popular. Tying tops that are too long or big can make them into cute crop tops and make them wearable again. This is also useful to use on concert t-shirts because it gives them some shape compared to their normal boxy shape. Buttoned tops are also great to tie in the middle this can make them less formal and give them some more shape. So next time you’re thinking about discarding a top check to see if you can tie the top to reinvent it.

Last Minute Valentine’s Day Oufit

vdoutfit

If you feel like being festive tomorrow here is a super casual but cute (I think it’s cute at least) outfit for Valentine’s day. If you own anything with hearts on it tomorrow is the day to wear it! I painted hearts on this black pair of leggings from H&M with fabric pain and made a heart stencil out of cardboard. The painted leggings aren’t necessary though, I would simply recommend wearing white and red and neutralize it with black bottoms and boots. If this is all too much work for you just eat lots of chocolate to get into the spirit.

Happy Valentine’s Day <3

Rainy/Snowy Day Outfit

I’m awful and dressing appropriately for the weather. This outfit however works for me. Maybe it’s not a super warm jacket (those always tend to be extremely puffy) but it works for rainy days and days with snow. The Hunter rain boots are definitely key (obviously you don’t need Hunter Rain boots any will do) I wear them with a fleece lining so they keep my feet really warm and they’re water proof.  The jacket from Garage isn’t the warmest but you can wear a sweater underneath for extra warmth. I also prefer to wear dark pants because if your pants get a bit wet from the rain or snow  you don’t notice it as much.

This winter I also started wearing hats (I’m not only against puff coats but hats because they always fit weird) but they’re super handy to keep your hair in place and of course warmth this one is from American Eagle. I threw in some beauty products for fun. Waterproof mascara is always a good idea in general but especially on rainy days, and lip stain because well honestly I just like that lip stain and its a bright colour which will spice up the outfit, and blue glittery nail polish because it matches the colours in the outfit. I also enjoy using my Otter Box phone case  on days like today because its protective which is good on days you don’t want it to get wet and  because I regret being persuaded into buying a $30 phone case that isn’t even that cute so I needed to find a use for it.

Fall Shoe Combinations

I love being able to wear boots and a variation of shoes in the fall. When deciding on what shoes to wear it’s “important” (if you find fashion important) to consider the rest of your outfit mainly your bottoms. Here are some of my personal favourites.
