Twirl

Photo 18-9-14 2 43 46 pmI love grey and black together. It’s not quite monochromatic, but has the same sort of “cool” effect. So I know it’s autumn and pretty close to winter and this is more of a summer outfit, but it’s still good for vacation! Or wear it with sheer black tights, ankle boots and throw a parka on over it and you’re good to go! I love this skater skirt (though I have to be careful of wind) and it hits right at the perfect place to be paired with crop tops. I really like the way this top cuts in at the shoulders and it’s a great length too. Something about this outfit vaguely brings 1960’s mod fashion to mind for me, but I’m no expert so I could be totally mistaken on that.

Photo 18-9-14 2 40 48 pm (1)I did matte red lips (Revlon) which matched my bright red Essie toenails, though my favourite nail colour at the moment is a perfect-for-fall deep oxblood colour. I wore cagey black strappy sandals to tie the outfit together and wore little black and gold Van Cleef & Arpels stud earrings which are obviously very much covered by my hair. Don’t forget to moisturize! The one that works best for me is by Garnier Body with canadian maple leaf extract, but for scented ones I usually go for Victoria’s Secret body lotion topped off with their body mists:)

The best accessory? A smile, (and a laugh too):) I know I was laughing twirling around in the park:)

Marooned

Maroon is pretty much the colour of the season for me at the moment. On top of that, I’m a sucker for flowy tanks, which makes this top kind of perfect. Criss-cross back, crochet detailing, and the perfect colour; I love this top from Subdued. Paired with light-wash jeans and chunky woven platforms, this is perfect for a lunch/brunch date. The shoes from Island Shop are deceptively comfortable (and look awesome), so don’t be fooled by their height. I picked light wash jeans since they always put me in a sunny mood (better take advantage of the last weeks of summer) but really any wash works. I left my hair down, but bun it up high or do a messy side fishtail braid to leave the criss-cross back exposed.

This top can also be effortlessly carried over to night with tight black pants and black sparkly pumps. Or wear it with shorts to the lake with friends. It’s kind of a miracle top that matches with anything for any occasion.

Have a great day:)
