The Uniform

Or shall we call it my signature style? Dress in what feels right and makes you feel good. Embrace your style and work with it. Make it yours. I’m going to call my style edgy boho. Probably not really a thing but it combines my love for flowy and black everything. A syndrome created by living in the Northeast section of the country. Black, black and more black. Extra points if it’s leather, faux or real. I’m completely obsessed with these Free People trapeze slips. I have them in a variety of different colours – not only black. Dress ‘em up. Dress ‘em down. In the summer you can wear them alone and in the winter you can throw a sweater or thermal over them and voila… instant outfit!

Not Yet

So the calendar says spring. The thermometer says otherwise. Until the two reach an agreement I’m sticking with my boots and sweaters. I’m one of the few people who actually doesn’t look forward to spring and warm weather. Boots, sweaters, faux fur coats, scarves, layers — these are a few of my favourite things. Sorry everyone but I’m holding out as long as I can. I added the smallest touch of the new season with this amazing flower necklace my mum and dad brought back from France. Otherwise, in true Northeast spirit I’m in all black. All black doesn’t have to be boring if you mix up textures and prints as I did here with knits, lace and leather. The slightly edgier over-the-knee boots with my otherwise boho outfit added a little twist. Enjoy!

Easy Chic

Sometimes simplicity is the way to go. I have a hard time not adding that quintessential 3rd piece so a wrap or scarf just adds completion and finesse. These vegan leather leggings were on such sale that they almost paid me to take them out of the store. They’re Blank NYC and started out relatively expensive. There’s nothing like getting that amazing deal on an item of clothing you know you’ll wear over and over and over. Go me! I paired them with a simple long sleeved tee but I’m sure I’ll wear them with fancier tops as well. It’s all about versatility! Tip – when your pants and boots are the same colour it elongates your legs!

The Sitting Room

I tried something new last time and apparently you all missed my commentary. I guess I should be flattered that you actually read what I write! Here it goes…

Can I just mention that winter blogging is tough? How often am I dressed before the sun sets? Not very apparently! And I adore winter fashion and would love to show you so much more! Oh well… I give up. Pictures from my sitting room and living room, Scotch in hand, will have to do until the sun stays up a little longer.

This awesome sweater kimono with fun fringes at the bottom was all I needed to be cozy yet chic. I always have a cami or tank underneath everything because restaurants are so overheated in the winter. I need to be able to strip down as much as possible! I adore how dark greys and blacks make shiny jewellery pop so well. The necklace is a new acquisition that my parents brought back from Europe and I needed the right outfit to show it off. Side note… I love these Prada Chelsea boots!

Birthday Black and e.l.f

It’s been a while. How are you? Life’s been a little crazy to say the least, but here I am. Back with an outfit. It’s been driving me nuts that I haven’t had a chance to blog. Not to mention the early darkness that makes getting home in time for pictures not so easy! Anyway, enough blither. Enjoy my black outfit that I wore out for one of my birthday dinners. People think that all black can be boring but I think not. Mixing textures and hues adds interest and you can’t go wrong for a night out in the sultry shade.

Check out my makeup too. My eyes are courtesy of e.l.f Cosmetics as part of their #elfbeautysquad for their #playbeautifully campaign. I’ve seen e.l.f in the store before but had never indulged. I have to say I’m loving the Everyday Smoky Eyeshadow Palette and the Illuminating Palette is amazing!

Hipster and Hofstadter

Happy Halloween! So not my thing! That said, my husband and I attended a benefit this past weekend and had to come up with something! I was going for hipster but I’m honestly not sure if it came out as hipster, or grunge or something combined. My husband has been told that he could be any of the characters on The Big Bang Theory so he went for Leonard Hofstadter. I think he was spot on!
