1PIECE/2WAYS: A Little Black Dress

How to Wear an LBD

... or really, here are two takes on how I would or could wear an LBD like this bodycon one pictured.

A little black dress is an essential for every girl's closet because it's a piece that can take you anywhere. Girls' night out? Check. Proper work attire? Check. Casual ordinary day wear? Check. Date outfit? Check. It's like a blank canvas that you can accessorize with anything.

The first outfit is definitely more of a night-time look. The sleeveless blazer keeps it chic, while the metallic heels bring glamour. The outfit could also easily be work-appropriate if I switched out for a more traditional sleeved blazer and nude pumps. Mint, while traditionally a daytime colour, gives the outfit a more relaxed summer vibe, and the coral lipstick finishes off and gives a bold touch to the otherwise neutral colour scheme, finishing the look.

TUESDAY TEN / Dream Designer Bags

TOP10 Designer Handbags
Created with Polyvore

I don't know about you, but I have a pretty long extensive of things I plan to buy in the future, when I get a real job/win the lottery/marry a billionaire (jk!), etc. Things that fall along the category of definite 'want' rather than 'need'. A designer bag is one of those things -- at the moment, only a fantasy, because who doesn't dream of the high life from time to time?

Here are some of the bags -- and brands -- that have caught my eye...

1PIECE/2WAYS: Oversized Denim Jacket

How to Style an Oversized Denim Jacket

I've mentioned before how big denim is this summer in my post on trends, and yet somehow it has slipped my mind to actually buy one for myself. How unfortunate, especially because my sister sniped my mom's vintage one before I even thought to do it. *makes mental note to hit up the closest thrift store before the summer is over*

In the meantime, here's how I would style an oversized denim jacket, if only I had one!

#1 Simple

Loose striped tee, leggings, and a satchel in a neutral tone -- a pretty standard outfit, but of course, it's all up to accessories to make an outfit interesting. The black Chelsea boots will elongate the legs when worn with the leggings. This entire look is comfortable, understated, and effortless -- made all the more so with the denim jacket. I'd add in some simply jewelry -- only the necessities -- and top it off with a bold lip, depending on how I'm feeling that day.

I've been waiting for what seems like ages for Tuesday to come around (since I, y'know, sort of missed last week) so I can finally start my Top10 Tuesdays -- collective mixture of mood boards, wishlists, and favourites! (I've got to give credit where credit is due, though, the idea of this post came from Billie-Rose, but I love the idea of 'numbered' posts, for example, Kate from ghostparties writes amazing "5 Things" posts.)  

It might be summer, but black and white still reigns supreme in my closet, so here are 10 outfits which I'm drooling over at the moment. They're also great transitional looks from summer to autumn, which is one of my favourite times of the year. Even the prospect of going back to school is not enough to dampen my excitement at being able to wear my leather jacket again!

Whatsup Killbear


So this past weekend was a long weekend for all of us Canadians -- it's this Civic Holiday, no one knows why it exists, but it's not in human nature to doubt why we have days off, y'know? My family took advantage and we took off to Killbear for the day to go hiking! We used to go hiking/camping a lot back when I was in high school, but the whole moving away to school thing kind of put a halt to that, so it was nice to be back together as a family in the outdoors. I really don't get out enough anyway... haha.
