the days are bright and so are the nights

jacket - joe fresh / dress - free people / belt - aritzia / boots - steve madden / nails - essie chinchilly

i wore this outfit to a show downtown last weekend and i'm so glad i finally had the time to post it. i absolutely love this dress because the sparkly material is so fun and the skirt is so perfect for twirling.  to make the dress a bit more appropriate for the day i "military-ised" it with a thick belt, my trusty combat boots and my favourite army green jacket.

the one whose hand i'm holding is the one who holds my heart

shirt - all saints / shorts - acne / necklace - the circle necklace

i understand that this post is completely out of season but i found so many outfit pictures from summer and i don't want them to go to waste. i figure that there is still warm weather somewhere in the world. i promise i have some fall outfits lined up that i'm so excited to share with you! hope you all enjoy your weekend xo

werkin out

gym bag - lulu lemon / tank - h&m / pants - PINK by victoria secret

tomorrow after school me and two of my friends are going to hit the gym for a little back to school get back in shape (which is much needed on my part) so in honour of that, i wanted to show you guys my sensible but beautiful gym bag and a typical work out outfit of mine.

i love all the different compartments in the bag; there's literally one for everything. i'm a big sucker for pre-labeled compartments (only me? okay...) there's also a separate shoes compartment at the bottom of the bag (which i'm clearly not utilizing) which is so handy if you want to separate your smelly shoes from your other things.

so long sweet summer

top - american apparel / shorts - material girl / shoes - converse / sunnies - ray bans

how FUN are these shorts? nothing attacks my extremely large fear of birds more like wearing them (but no really, i'm terrified of birds) paired with a crisp denim vest-top and my not so crisp converse, this outfit pushes the boundaries of my style but still stays true to me.

on a much darker note, school has started and so far grade 11 and i have not gotten off on the right foot.  hopefully the semester will only get better from here and i'll be sure to blog often to keep me sane under the piles of homework i'm sure i will have. i hope everyone's summer was as fantastic as mine and here's to another year of counting down to the next one!

and i will wait, i will wait for you

jacket - maison scotch

this jacket is a make or break/statement piece/conversation starter jacket. the fit, the embroidery, the details... it is perfect.  to say that i am in love with this jacket would be an understatement.

on this particular day i dressed it down with denim shorts and a plain tank top, but over a simple dress and with some heels; it could easily transform into the night.

little black t-shirt dress

sunnies - lacoste / dress - joe fresh / denim vest - j crew / flip flops - tkees / watch - marc jacobs 
bag & ring - unknown

this is a pretty sorry excuse of an outfit post but honestly my camera died right as i was about to take the pictures and i couldn't be bothered to keep the outfit on while it charged. needless to say, i was in sweatpants and a hoodie about 30 seconds after the last picture was taken.

i love the simplicity of this black t-shirt dress and the easy way it can be styled from day to night. i've been wearing my neon flip flops, my simple silver ring and my black leather bag non-stop and they've become my summer staple accessories. 

i promise to be back in action with proper (pro-per haha) pictures in my next post!

graphic tee heaven

all tops - talula (carried at aritzia)

long gone are the days of my preppy style and my navy stripes have been replaced by graphic tees; usually skulls to be seem especially badass.

food, water, shelter & shoes

top - zara / bottom - both jeffrey campbell

while i was waiting in the extremely long line at zara, i spotted those studded beauties and my heart immediately fell in love. i had to get them in a size up but that's what socks are for, right?

next i went to my favourite shoe store, little burgundy, with one goal in mind... i was going to cross off "buy a pair of jeffrey campbell heels" from my summer bucket list. i must have caught my mom on a good day because she bought me two! on the left are the beige lace tan lita and on the right are the black kidskin foxy wood.

we'll run wild, we'll be glow-in-the-dark

shirt - aritzia / shorts - zara / watch - marc jacobs / bag - cole haan

to me, this outfit is perfect. here we have all three of my greatest loves at the moment combined into the perfect summer ensemble. first, we start off with the necessary skull t-shirt. then to tie in the lace pattern from the skull, we add a pair lace shorts. finally, to add a bit of surprise to the cliché edgy yet girly outfit, we add a touch of neon yellow and voila! perfection.

drapey trench coat

shirt - forever 21 / shorts - TNA / sunnies - ray-ban

this look is an example of when i base my outfit on my mood. on this particular day, i was far from impressed by the lack of blue skies and i decided to go for a grey on black look.  

this jacket is just perfect for making a boring outfit into something half-decent.  the details on it and the cut of the jacket add a bit of edge to the usual trench coat style and it perfectly embodies my style.

p.s. excuse my lazy top knot and my attempt at being cute in the last picture.
