This fall I’ve been super inspired by 70s fashion, so walking into Forever 21 kindled my enthusiasm for retro garb like MAD. It’s some sort of heaven where we can buy specific decade-inspired pieces for an affordable price point.
I had the opportunity to explore Glasgow with Air Transat and Flare Magazine for the web series, ‘Style Jaunt‘. It’s all about unifying fashion and travel, experiencing a new city through the eyes of Canadian fashion bloggers. I was lucky enough to get invited, along with Gracie Carroll, to head down to Glasgow for a week and check out what the city has to offer.
From vintage boutiques to modern shops, sandwich cafes to whiskey bars, Gracie and I took full advantage of our week with little to no downtime (except for a night of dancing on the Saturday). I’ve accumulated a little photo diary, documenting the interesting places we visited and the delicious meals we consumed. These pictures don’t do the trip justice, you’ll have to watch the series when it comes out, which will be sometime between Feb-March…but don’t worry, I’ll remind you again before it does!
They did a past season in Lisbon, check it here.
In the midst of Fashion Month, it isn’t hard to notice the slew of street style images popping up on all of our screens. We watch as fashionistas explore trends and take them to the extreme, but fashion isn’t about unthinkingly following the hottest trends. These fashionistas have flair, sheer magnetism and a distinct understanding of what their personal style is. It’s this familiarity—and resulting confidence— that is so enchanting.
I don’t know about you guys, but Vancouver was just hit with a MAJOR windstorm that made a bunch of trees fall, power was out everywhere, and the city went a bit mad. Obviously, my girls and I dealt with the situation like it was a cakewalk and considered ourselves blessed that we had a “girl’s night in” planned.
With the sun dwindling down and electricity suddenly non-existent, we cozied up in the backyard and had bonding time without any distractions. We also had the best survival gear possible—sweets, beats, Palm Bay treats, and an instax mini to document the night.
Denim skirts are back in action! And not like the awkward short denim skirts of the early 2000′s, but the flattering high-waisted, pencil cut, distressed kind. I’ve paired this skirt with a white sheer top w/butterfly sleeves (great transitional piece into Fall), white sneakers, and gold accessories.
Keeping it simple, casual, but never plain as vanilla.
August–when we reflect on Summer’s annual demise. The silver lining? Transitional dressing.
The transition from Summer to Autumn is one of the most beautiful times of the year, and a favourite of mine when it comes to dressing. We start wearing deeper/richer hues, layering, and considering materials.
This look? I’m playing around with deeper purples and trench-coating (the waterproof and transparent kind). Also, little crossbody bags are still here in full force, and this circular pink JUJU bag is just the cutest.
Boho, chic, feminine, comfortable, current…all those things!
Motel Rocks and Nylon Mag collaborated on a two-piece set, and they did a fantastic job sticking to the energy of both brands. Get it here! Also, I made my Regal Rose head-piece into an armlet! Quite happy with how it turned out.
I’m hosting an awesome giveaway on my Instagram account!
