Last Minute NYE Outfit Ideas

Hello!! Hope you all had an amazing Xmas!:) I can't believe how fast the holidays are going by, and that tonight is already NYE!:D Ahh I am SO excited to celebrate with my friends tonight, and look back on how incredible 2014 was! I hope it was a fantastic year for you too!

Alright, let's talk fashion now! I finally completed my outfit as of a few days ago, and will be sharing it on my Instagram tonight, so stay tuned! Do you know what you will be wearing tonight?! NYE can be stressful, but planning your outfit shouldn't be! If it really is, just pretend it's a regular Friday night out and dress how you would then:) You don't have to be wearing a sequin dress to be festive! You can wear your favourite LBD and just bling it up with some accessories! If dresses aren't your thing, have some fun with pleather pants or even a jumpsuit, to stand out from the crowd! For colour, you really can't go wrong with black, whites/ nudes and deep reds! You can always add texture like a metallic belt or clutch to spice up your look as well! Hopefully these last minute ideas will spark some inspiration! Hope you all have a safe and fabulous night, and I'll talk to you next year!;)

Merry Christmas!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!! I hope you all had a wonderful day with your family and loved ones!:) Today I went for a walk along the beach with my family who came over from Van, feasted on ham (my absolute fav!!), played charades, walked around the block to see the Xmas lights and now going to watch Xmas movies for the rest of the evening! What is your tradition every Christmas?:) PS: I didn't bother doing a photo shoot for my outfit, as I just wore black leggings and a big sweater so I could eat all the food ;)

The candle lit here (and that has been lit every night for the past couple weeks at my home), is called "Leaves" by Bath&Body Works...oh my goodness it smells absolutely amazing!! I definitely recommend it! Maybe pick one up tomorrow for Boxing Day?:D Happy shopping, and talk to you in my next post!!xo

How to: Choose the Right Necklace for Different Necklines

A little while ago, I had a request from one of my readers to do a post on how to accessorize! It inspired me to put together this post, which is my take on how to pair the best necklace for different necklines! Whether it be a top or dress, there are so many different styles of necklines out there, but today I will share with you my top 6, and which style of necklace I think looks best with each! You can dress up a simple top, or make a fabulous outfit pop even more with the perfect necklace! So let's get started!!:D

6 Common Necklines: 

1. Crew Neck

For a crew neck, I think a shorter necklace that sits at the rim of the neckline is very flattering! Go for a necklace that has detailing throughout it (like below) instead of a pendant style necklace.

OOTN: Bars & Long Sweater Dresses

Hello everyone! So last Saturday I wore this outfit to the bar, and I thought I would do a quick outfit of the night (ootn) post! Since it was a more casual night, I left my 5 inch heels at home and went for an ankle boot. Plus it's been a little cold here in Victoria lately (brr I'm a baby), my toes would not have been very happy in heels! For my outfit, I adore the look of a long sweater dress that comes down past the knees. It is very form fitting and comfortable, I think these types of dresses are perfect for still looking chic and stylish during the winter season! What do you think?! To finish, I paired it with a leather jacket to give it an edgier look. I feel they are appropriate to still wear inside, and if it gets warm, take it off:) I plan on wearing this look to work soon, but instead of this jacket, I am going to wear it with a cropped black blazer, as I think it'll be more fitting for day time! PS: I wore a peacoat over top to keep me warm! ;)

Next time you come across a long sweater dress, give it a try! Maybe you can put together your version of an outfit with it to hit up a pub (or pubs) in, where you will be looking super fab!!
