Christmas Gift Guide

I wore this: the one with all the Canadian clothing


Second Yoga Jeans, my new favourite.  And they're a Canadian company, made in Canada

It's a new semester, which brings a new fashion goal for me.  During semester one I wore all my shoes once.  That was fun and also, as a side note...I haven't bought a pair of shoes since.  Maybe I'm on to something.  Being in front of teenagers makes me really think out my outfits each day and I don't like repeating what I wear, maybe that's also because I like being creative. goal for semester 2 is to be inspired more in my outfits and to post them more often.  I am following a couple different groups to gain some said inspiration.

Create 28 Prompts by my lovely little friend, Carrie:

1- Winter Floral.  The top is from Anthropologie from August.  Flowers in the winter make me happy.

Here are some of my fave Anthro winter floral prints right now.

2- My go-to Winter look: oversized sweater (from Simons, my favourite Canadian retailer, no longer available) and leggings (Aritzia-also Canadian. Ha.  I sense a theme.  Leggings here)

1- Monochromatic with a leather jacket. This was my first venture into monochromatic.  My favourite part was wearing bright pink lipstick as my pop of colour.  This entire outfit is old.  Moto Jacket from Joe Fresh 3 years ago, heart scarf from the BFF, I think she got it an H&M 2 years ago, Audrey Hepburn grey T from Forever 21 5 years ago, grey denim- Wit and Wisdom from Nordstrom last year and black booties from Candace.

2-  Black with red.  This was almost too much red for me, but it was beautiful out and I wanted to wear my red trench and the fun tuque that Carmen made for me...that's a big heart on the side of it.


3- Black and White with a pop of colour.  Key here is picking a colour that works for you.  I love bright.

4 - Sweater over plaid. This may be my favourite sweater, also from a Canadian company (here) .  Andrea, from Living on Cloud Nine had a similar outfit posted and I loved it, so I combined it with one of Lisa's prompts and it made it my own.

That's it for the week.  What I've come to realize about my wardrobe is that I need to pick outfits and pieces that are me.  Do you know what defines your style?
