Winter Wardrobe Basics

For me, my wardrobe consists of A LOT of basics. I remember in the beginning of high school when I really started buying my own clothing etc how I would buy such strange/kooky clothes. At the time my parents would take me shopping to buy the basics and when I had spending money from babysitting or house sitting I would get to actually “shop”.  I would got to value village with friends and we would scour the racks for anything strange and interesting. Although I have some pretty unique pieces I still have from some of those trips, I am realizing that it’s time to invest in pieces of clothing that matter. In the winter months I wear a routine uniform of jeans, cute boots (when it’s not slush outside), and a turtleneck shirt. Where I like to spice things up is in the jacket department and accessories. Your jewellery can really amp up your outfits, and having multiple coats that you can switch up your look with is an easy winter investment; it will help you from feeling stale in the style department. Hope those tips help! Thanks for reading!


There’s no place like home

Joe Fresh denim shirt and jeans, Nine West shoe, Zara jacket

There’s no better outfit than the Canadian tuxedo for Fall. It’s chic and super warm since you’re rocking a thick denim. On top I threw on my trusty leather jacket for some edge, more texture and honestly more warmth. For this outfit I wanted the shoes to speak for themselves. They’re giving me serious life with the Dorothy vibes. The Wizard of Oz was my number one movie growing up as a kid. My mother tells me she put it on at least once a day. My boyfriend recently said I don’t know how people can watch the same movie over and over, and I’m one of those people; I blame my mom haha. I saw these shoes at Winners and passed on them until two weeks later I couldn’t stop thinking about them and finally bought them and I ain’t mad!

“That” Sweater

American Eagle Sweater, Vintage Denim, Sam Edelman Loafers

You know the sweater I’m talking about when I say “that” sweater. It’s your go-to comfy sweater. Fluffy, cozy, your security blanket essentially. For me I don’t love wearing pull over sweaters but when I want to be my coziest that’s the sweater I go for. I love this one because although it looks like it would boil you up but somehow it’s very breathable. It’s slightly cropped with tiny slits at the side that I love, along with a faux turtleneck. Tiny stylistic details are what always grab me and turn basics into edgy pieces. Soft pink, cream I think is very flattering as well. I paired it with the perfect light wash vintage denim and dark green loafers for a touch of colour. Really digging this weather for “Fall”. It’s quite warm in Toronto so we’ve been able to wear just a sweater and be almost too warm in it outside. Fashion gets to live on for a while before we cover our personal style under a parka.

All That Jazz

Thrifted Kimono, Public Butter Vintage Tee, Hidden Jeans via Winners, Zara booties

If you know me or you actually read my blog then you know how much I thrift and vintage shop. I definitely do it more than I buy fast fashion pieces and that’s because I feel like I have my basics down for the most part and now I’m buying pieces that add to my “collection” that I’m curating. Really cool, interesting, unique pieces I can reach for when I need a little something for an outfit. This shirt I could not pass up. It was $15 and tell me when you’ve ever come across a vintage dance tee, I have never in my 26 years, and atleast 12 of those years have been dedicated to thrifting. Fosse is a pretty big dang deal in the dance world so even though this shirt is very large, I had to have it. I like pairing bigger tees with something pretty and girly like this shiny kimono and tall boots. Just to give it a different edge. I would wear this out for drinks or dinner any night of the week.
