Riri inspired look

In today's post I'm channelling my inner Riri because let's be real we've all got a little "badgal" in all of us! I've always been a big fan of the matching crop and high-waisted skirt combo and Rihanna is a perfect example of someone who effortlessly rocks the look and looks amazing in it every time. In my shopaholic days, I've come across quite a few styles from some of my favourite stores: Zara, Topshop and H&M but I never really found one that I really loved.. until last week that is..

 | Crop and Skirt: H&M | Booties: Topshop |

 | Leather Cap: shopgypsumstyle.com |

I instantly fell in love with the simple mid-length skirt when I saw it on one of the racks at H&M then knew i had to have it when I saw the matching crop for it! I absolutely love the subtle pin-stripe detail incorporated in the fabric: it's office wear meets glamour!

Styling wise, the outfit itself is enough on its own but a little glamouring up never hurt. I paired it with one of my favourite jewel necklaces also from H&M, my favourite leather cap, my staple black booties and finished off the look with some red lipstick(a must in my opinion)!

Styling the Midi skirt for Winter

This winter I'd have to say my most used piece of clothing has been my basic cotton midi skirt! Since I'm usually rocking the baggy & oversized looks, this mid-length minimalistic skirt adds the perfect amount of femininity to my often tomboyish outfits. Here's 3 outfits featuring my favourite basic! 

Have a lovely night!

The art of layering

| Wilfred Sweater and Wilfred free Plaid shirt: Aritzia | Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell |

Hello lovelies, I know it's been a while since i've last posted..I have been dreading going outside to take photos but I was able to find a new spot  right in the warmth of my own house so this is where I'll be taking my photos for the next little while at least until the temperatures start to go up.
Today's look is a simple casual chic outfit with some much needed layering for this extreme cold weather(They're calling it a polar vortex apparently hah). I'm loving this silk and cotton mix red plaid shirt that I recently bought from Aritzia, it's the perfect layering piece! I'm also wearing my favourite shoes at the moment which are surprisingly super comfortable and have lasted me through my 8 hour work days!
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
