Leather overalls

Leather Overalls: H&M | Wool Blazer: Thrifted

Necklace: H&M

Floral Socks: H&M | Boots: Topshop

Neon Beanie: American Apparel

One of my obsessions this fall: Overalls! I found this great faux leather pair at H&M and I absolutely love them. I never thought I would have the confidence to wear an all leather pair but I decided to give them a try and was so pleased with how well they fit and how soft they felt.

I paired the look with a great men's vintage wool blazer I found on one my thrift adventures a week ago and accessorized with a neon beanie for a pop of colour and some of my favourite  jewelled accessories.

The Plaid Suit

Blazer: Thrifted | Plaid Trousers: H&M

Accessories: Urban outfitters | Forever 21 | Brandy Melville(top to bottom)

Middy Rings: H&M 

You probably remember this plaid blazer from one of my previous posts. Well I finally found the perfect pants for them! I have been looking for a plaid pant and blazer combo for so long and was able to get these two pieces for just under $50. Although they're not the same fabric and identical plaids, the two worked great together and complemented each other amazingly. 

I love the sophistication and chicness that a suit can carry. Inspired by men's fashion, we see more and more women adopting the look and looking extra chic while wearing it. 

I wore this look for a fashion show last week and paired the look with my staple grey beanie and some gold accessories. Simple but chic. 

Have a lovely friday!

Treasures in the vintage aisles

Sweater: Thrifted | Vegan leather shorts: Durumi | Boots: Topshop

Necklace: Brandy Melville 

Once in a while, you come across that piece of clothing where you just know you scored on and will treasure it in your possession for a very long time. This sweater is that piece for me and is by far one of my best thrift finds found in the men's aisles of a second hand store. It's hard to believe that anyone would let the one go but the saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure" couldn't be more true. 

I just love the geometric shapes on the sweater and the amount of detail that was put into it just makes it even more perfect. I paired it with my leather scalloped shorts from a small boutique called Durumi located in Downtown, Toronto(definitely check them out if you're into unique delicate jewellery) and to play things up, wore my blue denim shirt underneath so I could get the collar detail and a pop of blue. Lastly to add to the geometric theme, I added my gold 3D triangle necklace from Brandy Melville. 

Have a fabulous evening,

As if!

Leather biker jacket and Fuzzy sweater: H&M/ Plaid skirt: Brandy Melville 

Whistle necklace: Nasty Gal

Silver rings: Brandy Melville/ Gold stackable rings: H&M 

My obsession with plaid continues and this skirt is one of my newest additions. I fell in love with this skirt as soon as I laid my eyes on it at Brandy but I was a tad worried about looking like a school girl considering i've seen so many highschool students wearing an almost exact replica as part of their school uniform. However, with a little bit of styling and accessorizing, the skirt was just the perfect accent to my outfit and the term "school girl" was quickly forgotten.

For this look, I'm wearing one the comfiest fuzzy sweater from h&m. I liked the baggy fit of the sweater but it still showed off the plaid skirt. I wore my leather jacket over top to add a rock chic feel to the look and completed the look with my staple black beanie and some gold & silver accessories.

It was an overall good day.

Overalls: Topshop/Sweater: Forever21

I loved my denim shorteralls so much that I couldn't resist getting the longer version so I could still rock the look for fall. The fact that they are a darker shade of blue makes them super versatile for coordinating different outfits for fall. 

For my first time wearing them, I decided to go for a more sporty look by wearing this great knit sweater from Forever21. To add a little glam, I wore my jewel necklace from H&M. 

Necklace: H&M

Booties: Topshop

P is for Plaid

Boyfriend Blazer: Thrifted (Value Village)

Cream knit top: Brandy Melville/ Whistle necklace: Nasty Gal

Alexander Wang Cut-out Booties: Choies.com 

Hey guys! Sorry about the lack of posts lately...school is starting to take over, but I definitely give koodos to the bloggers out there that are able to juggle school and work and are still able to post daily! As for me, i'm trying my best haha. This post, i'm super excited about because i'm oh so happy that I finally found a vintage plaid blazer! I have been looking for so long but could not find the right colour scheme, fit or the right size.. but as I was looking through the isles of the men's blazers and jackets at a thrift store this weekend, i spotted this beauty that I immediately grabbed without hesitation! I had to do some minor alterations like taking out the shoulder pads but it was a quick 10 min fix that was totally worth it! 

This fall, plaid seems to be among the favourites of the season. From runways to streetstyle, Plaid has been featured in a wide range of colours, patterns and fabrics and I am hooked! I couldn't have found this piece at a better time and love how it has the appearance of a boyfriend blazer on me since it is a men's blazer. I paired it with a cream knit tank that I recently bought from Brandy Melville, my black trousers from Zara and my leather cut-out booties from Choies' online store. As for my hair and makeup, I chose to do a messy bun and a dark mauve lipstick which complemented the colours on the blazer exquisitely!

 My next mission is to find a pair of plaid trousers that can match with the blazer so I can rock the matching pant and suit combo! 

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
