Holiday Outfit #2: Silver + Blue

19.12.14


Another holiday party outfit today! This slightly dressier look is centered around the statement bright cobalt blue dress. Add some silver accessories, and you've got a super cute outfit. Keep reading for some more photos and outfit details!

Dress - Anthroplogie (old, similar), Shoes - Aldo (very old, similar), Tights - Anthropologie (similar), Necklace - Popbasic (similar), Earrings - Anthropologie, Bag - Mackage


One of my favourite parts about this outfit are the tights! I love a good pair of polka dot tights, so cute and playful. I also removed the long strap from my Mackage Rubie bag to use it more as a clutch bag for an evening out.


If you're wondering what makeup I'm wearing, check out this post. I kept with the metallic theme, but switched it up with a stunning gold eye instead of silver.


Tugger wanted to know what was going on while we were snapping these photos, so he was dragged in for a shot.

Hope you liked this outfit, and be sure to check out how I rocked a jumpsuit to our office party in this post.

DIY Holiday Garland

17.12.14


I love everything about the holidays, but for some reason I wasn't very inclined to decorate my own space for my first Christmas there last December. I guess cause it's small, I'm away for the first bit of December, and it's just me anyway. But this year I decided to fill it with a bit more festive cheer. I've got a mini tree (seriously, it's drowning in presents it's so small), a wreath that my bestie made for me last year, and I whipped up this DIY garland last week. It's super easy to make, so keep reading for the instructions!


Supplies:
- Bows (of any size)
- Jingle bells
- Embroidery floss the same color as your bows
- Scissors & embroidery needle
- [optional] metallic tie-wraps


There is really just one step to this project: Use your embroidery floss to sew the jingle bells into little loops between your bows! You can use any color bows and also any size. Little clusters of smaller jingle bells would be cute too! My mum was going to toss these red bows that we used to put on our tree so I decided to put them to good use.


Once you decide where you're to secure it, you can decide how. My bows already have gold tie-wraps on them, so I simply cut them off all the middle ones and left one on each end to secure it. You could also make loops of embroidery floss at either end to hang on hooks.

p.s. This project is best completed while enjoying a homemade eggnog latte ;)


Hope you liked this project. A super easy way to inject some festive cheer into your small space!

Holiday Outfit #1: Sugar Plum

15.12.14


Holiday party season is upon us! One of my favourite things about this time of year is the opportunity to bust out my fancy gear and get all dolled up. I've got a total of 3 outfits to share with you over the next week or so, and the first is this plum-colorer jumpsuit. Keep reading for more photos!

Jumpsuit - Aritzia, Shoes - RED Valentino (from hr2, no longer available), Clutch - Popbasic, Earrings - BaubleBar (similar), Rings - Etsy

I think this look is perfect for the office party: it's cute, comfy, and you don't have to worry about inappropriate skirt lengths. The simplicity of the jumpsuit allows you to have fun with your accessories too. In my case, I went with these statement earrings from BaubleBar.

The best part about this clutch? It's so spacious that I was able to throw a pair of my Tieks Flats in in case I need a break from the heels. And there's still enough room for my powder compact and lipstick for touch-ups. Want to know what makeup I'm wearing? Check out this post!



What do you think about the sophisticated jumpsuit look?

The Weekend Edit Vol. 23

14.12.14



Ah Sunday: the day of rest, which is exactly what I'm doing! I've been feeling poorly all week, and back to work after coming home from Brussels didn't help much. Then the slew of holiday luncheons started on Friday, and the first of 3 Christmas parties was last night. Today I have no plans other than cleaning up my loft and trying to finally kick this cold out the door.

I did find some cool bits on the internet this week, so check 'em out!

The Beauty Department broke down "the lob" for all those thinking of making the big chop. Do it!

WhoWhatWear had some great tips for packing winter clothes for all those going away to a not so south destination this winter.

Need entertaining at your office party? Pay attention to what people are wearing says about them...

And finally, if Wes Anderson were to direct the upcoming Star Wars. I want to see his version too!

Brussels Photo Diary

12.12.14



Bonjour! I'm back from Belgium (unfortunately with a cold) and I've got a bit of a photo diary for you today. Brussels was beautiful and what I liked most of all was how walkable it was. Everything was within walking distance and it was easy to explore most of the city in a day. Keep reading for more photos!
