Work OOTD: Burgundy & Leopard

Good morning!:) Today I have another work outfit post, wearing my favourite combination right now...burgundy and leopard print! My obsession with burgundy coloured clothes and lips have carried over from fall to winter, and I have been rocking it non-stop! What has been your go-to colour this season?

My flats are a newer purchase from ALDO (on sale!) and they are super super comfy! I love how they match my scarf, and have that gold detailing. They also carry this shoe in black and white! For my pants, these are an old pair that I wore during my 2 Co-op terms when I worked in an office. I was going to throw them out, but then I found a way to casually wear them. All I did was roll them up and ditch my classic button up shirts. I love pairing these pants with a simple top tucked in and a heeled ankle boot for a chic look as well! I'm so happy I didn't let these pants go, as they are a key piece in my wardrobe now! Go through your closet and try on some of your items that haven't gotten any love lately...maybe there's something good, you just need to try styling it a different way :) Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!xo

A Closet Essential: The Ankle Boot

Good morning! Today's post is gonna be about some recent ankle boot purchases! I just love them so much I had to share them you! My obsession with ankle boots started early fall, and it has only grown.. Ankle boots are so chic, fashion forward and an essential to your wardrobe! I wear them to work, to dinners, errands, the bar..really they are super versatile! I love the look of a thicker heel, plus they are more comfortable to walk in that way!;) Obviously you can't go wrong with a black pair as they go with everything, but it's always nice to range out to other neutral colours. I'll be showing you close ups, reasons to why I love them so much, and the links to purchase them down below! Also, I will be doing some outfit posts in the near future where I'll show you how I style them, so stay tuned!:)


This first pair is from ALDO! They are leather with a rubber sole, and have a 3-1/4 inch heel. I absolutely love the gun metal zipper detailing on these. Since it's a gun metal colour, it gives me the option to style it with either gold or silver jewelry. When I zip them to the top however, it rubs against my ankle bone (ouch), so I wear them a little zipped down so they don't bother me!:) I prefer the look of them that way too! Also, I'll let you know the zipper makes a bit of noise when you're walking, but that wasn't a deal breaker for me as I got used to it real quick! They are the most comfortable out of the 3, and the easiest to pair with my outfits! I recommend going up half a size and putting in some insoles for a little extra cushion! PS: I got these for 50% off on Boxing Day (woohoo!) but they are back to regular priced now. I would wait a little, as they might go on sale again!;)

Work OOTD: The Tuxedo Blazer

Happy New Year to all my readers!! How has 2015 been treating you so far?! :) I've been working lots, catching up with friends and trying to get some outfit posts up for you! Unfortunately, the weather has been terrible lately and I am doing my FIRST ever indoor outfit post! I guess there's a first time for everything. I may have to start doing more of these as its dark at 430pm, and my days off it usually rains or my photographer (my sister) is at school!

Anyways, I love getting styled up for work, and I'm always thinking I NEED to do a blog post on some of these outfits! So here is my 1st Work OOTD! I am wearing a Tuxedo-style blazer, which I absolutely love, as it's not as structured as most blazers and much shorter in length. It's light weight, so I can wear it year round, and the "no-button open look" gives me that option to dress up or down an outfit! I think you could wear this blazer with a pencil skirt and blouse for the office, throw it over a dress for drinks and also wear it with dark wash jeans and ankle boots for a chic casual day time look! If you have a similar blazer, try mixing it in with your more casual pieces from your wardrobe for that "dressy-casual" look! I kept the outfit simple so had some fun accessorizing with gold for my jewelry and shoes! To finish, I'm wearing my favourite red lipstick, "Viva Glam 3" by Mac for a pop of colour! I definitely recommend it!!:)
