Hey guys, Happy Saturday! I never thought I would be an overalls kind of girl but turns out I kinda am. I had never tried any on before this shoot. They always came off so country farm girl to me which isn’t my style, so I never thought to try and make them work for me. But when Wild Blue Denim offered to send me some pieces to share on my Instagram, I saw these overalls on the list of options and thought it was the perfect opportunity to try and make them work.

The Burgandy Saddle

Hi everyone! I’m back on the blog sharing another outfit with you all. I really love the vibe of this outfit. You guys know how much I love to mix dressier elements with more casual laid back ones, which of course is what I’m doing here again. I’m really enjoying pairing my Adidas with these leather joggers, I think this combo screams comfort and is quite cool, if I do say so myself! Another combo I also seem to be enjoying, is wearing a coat over Continue reading

Festival Fashion

FullSizeRender-7

A couple of weeks ago my lovely blogger friend Katie of Yow City Style contacted me for a festival fashion collab. She challenged me to style my best festival outfit with pieces I could find at the Bayshore Shopping Centre for her take over of the Bluesfest fashion instagram account. For those who don’t know, Bluesfest is a 10 day music festival here in Ottawa that features a range of different awesome artists every summer. This year will actually be my first time attending (for my Ottawa people I know I’m crazy! I’ve lived here Continue reading

Black Out

FullSizeRender-4

Hey guys!! This look has be hanging out on my laptop for sooo long now (you can tell by the fresh snow I was walking in). I think it’s finally time to share since spring is almost here and you’ll judge my procrastination even more if I wait any longer. I’ve been wearing a lot of all black looks lately because 1. I love wearing black 2. It’s easy to wear and style when I’m rushing to school and 3. It was my way of making sure I could be found in all the snow we were getting buried in. Continue reading

My Fashion & Beauty New Year’s Resolutions

IMG_2670

Hey guys! Happy New Year!! We’re 7 days in already. How are you doing? Have you managed to keep your resolutions so far? I don’t usually make resolutions. I definitely think about things that I want to do and achieve in the coming year, but don’t really set them in stone or make a list. This year I’ve surcome to the resolution hype. I’ve made a few beauty and fashion resolutions that I thought I’d share. Let’s see how long I can keep them up. Continue reading

The White Coat

llllll

Have you ever worn a coat any other colour than your typical black or grey and felt like you stood out like a sore thumb? That’s how I felt the day I wore this coat; like a white dot in a sea of darker dots swimming through the mall. It had me feeling like all eyes were on me (that was probably in my own head, you know that whole spotlight effect we all experience). But you know when you catch someone staring at you, and you have no idea why or if it was a good or bad stare? I used to never know how to feel about it. I’d be like, “Do I look crazy? Did I do something weird? Do I have something on my face? In my teeth? Continue reading

A Walking Ad

FullSizeRender-5

Remember in the last post how I said that now of all times I’m loving wearing skirts and dresses? Yaaaa, I wasn’t joking. Here I am in a sleeveless dress like it’s May and not mid December (YAY for the above zero temperatures we’ve been having!!). I still need to remind myself that its cold and winter dressing time. I could’ve been a little warmer in this look but I was pretty comfortable thanks to some secret layering tricks. Want to know what they are? (I ask like I’m not just about to tell you anyway).

How To Sport Luxe

IMG_2338

In my last post I mentioned that I had gotten together with a few local bloggers a while back to work on a project, so today I’m sharing the details of that with you. The project we worked on was a fall/winter lookbook where we each styled key pieces and trends for fall and winter. I was assigned the sports luxe trend and was only too happy to know that I would get to style my Nikes outside the gym (but to be real I have not yet worn them to the gym). They’re my “fashion sneakers” I got for the sole purpose of styling looks like this one. I’ll let you know when I decide to actually be active and sweat in them, but don’t hold your breath.  Continue reading

All White & A Little Grey

IMG_8197

I’ve been staring at my laptop screen for way longer than I’d like to admit, trying to figure out what the hell to write about today. It’s been a real struggle, but the blogging gods have answered my prayers because frankly they’re probably sick of my whining and now I have so much to say my hands can’t type fast enough to get it all out. I’m gonna pipe down, have some food and I’ll get back to this a little less hangry (It’s a real thing, google it). Continue reading

“You look Amish” – Mom

IMG_8439

“You look Amish.” That’s the lovely comment I got from my mother when she first saw me in this hat 😂. My answer: “Bishh swerve!!” No I’m kidding! She would’ve killed me. It went more like this: “Well I’m the cutest Amish I’ve ever seen, so bye Felicia!” My mom literally comes up with the funniest ways to describe some of the pieces in my closet, especially the ones she’s not so fond of. Another one of my favourite examples is her calling Harem pants “diarrhea pants”. Yup that’s what I deal with lol. Anyone else have a family member that just doesn’t understand your style?
