I’ve never experienced a winter where you can wear dresses and open toe heels. It’s absurd yet totally cool all at the same time. I’m not complaining, well maybe sometimes if its really cold but that’s not the point. The point today is to share my goods that I purchased at *surprise surprise* Zara. Back story: I’ve been watching GG lately, and really have been focusing on the fashion, so I tried to stick to what would GG wear manta for this spree. Without further ado, here are my goods.
- As I start to ascend in my adult years, I am trying to wear more dresses/I really enjoy dresses heaps more now. This v-neck babydoll dress is PERFECT for layering with those chunky knit sweaters. Or if it’s a tad warmer, that crop cotton T you have will pair just as perfectly. Also, this dress reminded me of Blair and Serena put together. What do you think?
Fun fact: This dress has pockets. Sold.
- My eye was caught to the ruching of this beautiful beautiful jumpsuit. Have you ever seen a jumpsuit with chord locks?? On an even more exciting note, it fits me in vertical length as well, which never ever happens. So thank you Zara for making appropriate fitting jumpsuits for vertically challenged people. (Serena inspired)
- I’m not sure what’s been up with me, but ya girl has been really intrigued with velvet blush pink. Yah, I know, right? I made an acceptation because I told myself colour is needed in my wardrobe, thus, the shoes had to be bought. They are so fun, with them being velvet and platform as well. You can definitely rock the socks in these heels or go all nude. Winning all around. (Vanessa inspired)
I also still try to buy pieces that I can wear together instead one time. Platform shoes go really well with jumpsuits to add height if the leg is a little too long. Also, baby doll dresses look very chic with platform shoes. They create a more appropriate aged looking outfit, rather than looking 12 again.
Again cannot be more thrilled to be wearing these kind of pieces in winter. Really looking forward to rocking these velvet babes in the sunshine!!
Lately, I have really been all about that cozy look. It’s been quite comfy per my new lifestyle. It’s very chilled a laid back here in NZ. With that, the over obnoxious looks, can be really too obnoxious. So I’ve really been enjoying this minimalistic versatile wardrobe. If you follow me on my insta, which you can right here (; my go-to pieces at the moment, have been my RapidaRun Adidas. My bloody awesome denim jacket, blue velvet booties, my White sheer straight dress and the worlds comfiest yoga pants; that I scored at TjMaxx. However, I sadly cannot find them online right now, but you can find similar ones here.
I highly recommend these being in your wardrobe because of the versatiltiy they can provide, and will always be a handy essential for any time of day if you forget that one shoe, or top because who doesn’t run late?!
Fabrics are what usually get me, since I am a touchy-feely kind of person. On a deeper level, leathers and suedes make me weak in the knees. Seriously.
My dear friend and fabulous photographer who shot this photoshoot, decided why not go to a green house since the outfit seemed to tie perfectly with the colours… uh, ok. Never would have thought to collaborate with a green house, but wine not. I mean, why not. sorry it’s wine Tuesday. && spring is around the corner, perfect timing.
Leathers and suedes can be tricky but also can be a tolerable look. Being sophisticated yet completely trendy at the same time. Specifically, these leather Olive leather shorts give me life. The bow-tie belt so cute! And the fact they’re not skin tight, they add some-what laid back tom-boy look as well.
My go-to faux suede jacket is obviously a win since it is a piece that can be paired with pretty much anything. Thus; a given.
But let’s talk about my sweatshirt. Me being almost Martha Stewart crafty, I decided to make the sweatshirt because WTHN? Why The heck Not? Easy enough, bought a solid colour sweatshirt, ironed on some letters and bam. A one-of-a-kind piece baby. Except for the ones I made for a few of my friends… haha so join the club!
As TopShop always comes through, they most definitely came through with these shoes. Acca-mazing. Yeah, I just went there. Super cute, super trendy and super fabulous, I mean come on. What’s not to like about these? (I hope you caught my sarcasm) but in all honesty, these booties are perfect to compliment my mix-match fabric blend look. PS. they’re very versatile too, so when in doubt… bootie it out!!
As I continue my obsession with sweaters, my NYTT sweater is my most favourite piece. The continuous softness feel it has after every clean, it’s impeccable. Big words are being thrown ya’ll, that’s how amazing this jumper is.
Sunday’s are my low-key days. If I am not at church, or working, I am in bed sleeping. Sabbath day ya dig? I will take my 7th day to R&R people. Since I was working on this fine Farmer’s day Sunday morning, I decided to feel as if I were still in bed, but not. You can never say no to BF jeans either. The effortlessly chic style these pants do are GOLDEN. With the sweater for my top, it was game over for being uncomfortable. Clothes can honestly do wonder to your mood… it’s a proven fact. I may have looked alive today but deep down, I wasn’t.
Here’s to late nights.
Low-key means low-key for me. Minimal fashion cramps, and by cramps I mean still have feeling in my feet after a days work. I was thinking smart today and paired my outfit with some snazzy faux snake skin slip-ons. BAM. This outfit went from ehh, to Hello Gorgeous. Shoes can also do a number on an outfit as well. Today I was looking for the least painful way to look beautiful, so flats will be your best friend for that decision.
I posted a blog a few days ago on beanies and how you can look babe-alicious in them. Well, same goes for floppy hats. OR if you’re like me, having bed head, these babies will too be your best friend.
Side note: I am sensing a pattern here. Clothes will always be there for you and no matter what you will look fabulous. They will always have your back(in this case body) && they can be transformed into whatever style you need. 3 Cheers for Clothes!
PS. a little fun fact, when it comes to chokers, I decided instead of purchasing a 50$ choker, why not make one? It’s so easy. All you need is ribbon; which can be found at your local fabric or Target. Know how to to tie a knot and VUALA. You have yourself an original one-of-a-kind choker necklace that did not break the bank. I wore this the other night was given heaps of compliments… only if they knew the real secret.
