June Wishlist

June Wishlist

1.Anine Bing Army Jacket  | 2.Aritzia Wilfred Chardon Dress | 3.Chloe Faye Bag | 4.Anine Bing Bianca Boots

We experienced summer in April, and now we are experiencing fall in June! The weather has been extremely unpredictable lately, which makes getting dressed in the morning very hard. For example: Sunday started out with the sun shining, fairly warm and not a cloud in the sky, later on ( around lunch time ) the winds started to pick up and I needed to grab a jacket before leaving the house. By 2 o’clock the storm clouds had rolled in, by 2:30 the rain started to pour, which then turned into a baby thunderstorm, which then cleared up to sunny skies and then finished it all off with a hail storm. How is one supposed to dress for such sporadic weather?! This month’s wishlist is exactly how I would have dressed on a day like I experienced on Sunday: an Army Jacket to keep me warm and dry, a Summer Dress to stay in season, a pair of leather black boots so my feet don’t get soaked and a classic black bag to tie the whole look together!

Rainy Day Wanna Wear

mothers

Trench Coat / 2 T-Shirt / 3 Tote / 4 Sneakers

With the season of spring comes random and temperamental weather: one day it is hot and sunny, the next cold and rainy! On days where the weather is anything but ideal I tend to stick to the classics when it comes to getting dressed: a simple striped t-shirt ( you can never have too many! ), a black trench coat ( chic and sleek ), flatform sneakers ( keeps your toes nice and dry ) and a large tote ( to carry all of your unnecessary necessities )

May Wishlist

may wishlist

I must admit, for a girl that typically only dresses in shades of black and grey with the occasional pop of white, I myself am quite surprised that my May Wishlist features all blush pink pieces. Now this may not seem like a whole lot of color to you, but for me this is very daring and different. I honestly have no idea what has gotten into me this month, but I am obsessed with pink! I’m not the only one right?

1Fossil Jacqueline Date Blush Leather Watch // I have been so watch obsessed lately, and the fact that this is a blush pink watch makes it 100x better! Every detail of this watch is perfect, from the delicate and feminine size, to the soft pink and rose gold color, to the roman numerals on the face, this watch is perfect for the spring and summer months ahead.

2. Splendid Edna Espadrilles // Espadrilles are becoming my go-to shoe of the season: comfortable and versatile, espadrilles pair wonderfully with anything from ripped jeans to a beautiful summer dress. As I already have a pair of Black Espadrilles that I wear on an almost daily basis, I believe that the addition of a soft pink pair would complete my summer wardrobe.

3. Sophie Hulme ‘Nelson’ Bucket Crossbody Bag // Recently, while browsing through Instagram, I came across mega babe Jessica Alizzi of Jessica + Love and saw that she owns an absolutely amazing pink bucket bag! I instantly fell so in love with her bag that I have honestly become obsessed with finding one of my own! Although there is absolutely no way I could ever afford this Sophie Hulme version, I can always dream right?

April Wishlist

april wishlist

Good morning and Happy 1st of April Folks! The start of a new month means a new wishlist, and this month I am dreaming of the warmer weather that is to come. During the spring/summer my style becomes very simple and feminine, but of course I do not stray far from my monochromatic style. I mean, what is color?

1.Aritzia Wilfred Calvados Dress // Soft & feminine, beautiful & simple, these are the words I would use to describe this dress. I have had my eye on this dress for a very long time, and almost bought it last year but instead I opted for this very similar dress Here ( styled Here ). Just like the little black dress, you can never have too many little white dresses in your wardrobe. Extremely versatile and easy to style, LWD is definitely a staple in my wardrobe….and I may need a few more.

2. Dior ‘So Real’ Sunglasses // I don’t often wear sunglasses on my blog, mainly because I think all sunglasses look a little funny on my small face, but the minute I saw these Dior sunglasses I knew I needed them in my life. You may remember from my February WishlistHereI originally wanted the Dior ‘Reflected’ Sunglasses (and I still do), but I think these black & gold sunglasses fit my style a little bit more ( and like I could ever afford these….this is a wishlist after all! )

3. Chloe Faye // Surprise, surprise, another Chloe Bag has made an appearance in a wishlist. I don’t know if you can tell by now, but I am a little bit obsessed with Chloe! I believe that the bags they design are absolutely gorgeous, and don’t even get me started on the shoes! In my dream world I would be the proud owner of multiple Chloe designs (specifically handbags) but I a cannot afford even one! So for now, I will have to admire it from afar.

4.Pierre Hardy Espadrilles // Aren’t these beautiful? I love that they are not any ordinary espadrille, that they are a mix between an espadrille and a lace up ballet flat. With summer right around the corner I am dreaming of the days where I can just slip my foot into a pair of flats instead of bulky boots, but that won’t happen for a while… so who knows maybe by then I will own these beautiful shoes (probably not.)

New In: Adidas Superstars

adidas sneakers.1

Adidas Superstars

Well. I finally caved and bought my first pair of Adidas Superstars, and I am in love! I have no idea why I waited so long to buy them ( maybe it had to do with the fact that I keep buying coats… ) but now that I own them I cannot stop styling them! Of course I haven’t worn them outside yet, the unpredictable spring weather has me being very paranoid about scuffing my new white shoes, but I did wear them long enough to shoot a new outfit that will be up on Friday. So remember to check back in to see the entire look! And don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Twitter to stay up to date on all things me ;)

March Wishlist

march wishlist

Wishlist

Blouse | Jeans | Handbag  | Flats

March is officially here, and although the temperature is still below freezing and snow is still on the ground, that does not stop me from dreaming about the upcoming warmer weather.

1.See by Chloe Pleated Blouse // As many of you may know by now, I have a little crush on all things Chloe, and this beautiful blouse is of no exception. I personally love all things girly and feminine, especially since we are starting to transition into the warmer months, and to me this blouse just screams spring! The beautiful soft pink colour, subtle bell sleeves and delicate ruffle detailing makes this blouse perfect for the upcoming season and is exactly why I fell in love with it the minute I laid eyes on it.

2.Citizens of Humanity Emerson Slim Fit Boyfriend Jeans // I own about 4 pairs of boyfriend jeans, but these ones are different. So logically I need them right?! I prefer not wearing boyfriend jeans in the fall/winter because I find that they don’t keep me all too warm, but in the spring/summer they are my go-to when I am not wearing shorts.

3.Chloe Drew Shoulder Bag // Surprise, surprise, another piece chosen from the Chloe collection. You did hear me say that I am kinda in love with all things Chloe right? In my dream world I would own every colour of Chloe bag available ( I especially love this one! ) but as stated before I am just a poor little fashion blogger who cannot afford such a beautiful piece of artwork ( yes. It is art. ) So for now I will just admire it from afar, and be content with the look-a-like I bought here.

4.Steve Madden Lecrew Lace-Up Flats // Two trends that I have noticed popping up all over Instagram are these beautiful, ballet-inspired, lace-up flats and the colour pink. I have never been much of a pink fan, preferring to stick to a blackwhite and grey colour palette, however I find myself drawn to this beautiful soft pink. Which is why I centered my wishlist around the colour, who knows! Maybe I will be wearing colour this upcoming spring/summer!

  1. Grey Chain Cross Buckle PU Shoulder Bag
  2. White Twist Lock Shoulder Bag
  3. Beige Zipper Metallic Embellished PU Shoulder Bag

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

February Wishlist

february wishlist

Good morning everyone! Can you believe that it is already the first of February?! I can’t believe that we are already into the second month of 2016Today’s post is of my February Wishlist, which is really just a collection of things I wish I could afford but instead I am a poor student who has to shop at discount stores and stalk online for the best sales. Recently I have really been into the whole monochrome trend and dressing all in one colour or tone on tone these trends are what inspired this months wishlist.

1. Aritzia Babton Bryan Wool Coat // I have been dreaming about this coat for such a long time! Some of you guys make think it’s a little silly to be including a wool coat into my wishlist when we are starting to venture into spring/summer, however living in Western Canada I know that I will be experiencing winter for another few months now. So why treat myself to another wool coat? This one from Aritzia has been on my wishlist since I first saw it online at the end of Summer, but I was never brave enough to spend the money on it. Now that it is sold out in my size I am kicking myself for not buying it sooner!

2.White Adidas Superstars // Next up on my February Wishlist is the all white Adidas Superstars. For awhile now the Adidas Stan Smiths have been a staple in almost everyone’s wardrobe, and I myself have admired them for some time. But while perusing the Adidas website earlier this year I stumbled upon a pair of all white Adidas Superstars, and I instantly fell in love! As you all know I wear my White Keds ALL the time so I think if I was to buy myself a little something, something this month it would most likely be these gorgeous sneakers!

3.Proenza Schouler ‘PS11’ Shoulder Bag // I am not gonna lie. Whenever I see one of these gorgeous bags ( it doesn’t matter what size or colour ) I can hear the voice of angels singing. Honestly I can. I have so much love for this bag and it has been on wishlist ever since I first laid eyes on it a few years ago. Usually I don’t stray far from my love for Black Bags, but for some reason I am drawn to the rich white colour of this ‘PS11’. Maybe one day I will be a proud owner of one of these beautiful bags, but for now it is sitting at the very top of my wish list!

4. Dior ‘Reflected’ Sunglasses // Even though it is the middle of winter I still find reasons to wear my sunglasses, and although I cannot afford these beautiful sunglasses from Dior I can still dream. Unfortunately the pair that I have been eyeing ( get it ) for some time now are, of course, sold out ( just my luck ) but these Dior ‘Technologic’ Sunglasses are very similar and come a close second to my original wish.
