If you don’t own a long skirt, you’re really missing out. It’s beyond comfortable and you don’t have to worry about any sudden gusts of wind revealing too much (been in that situation way too many times). It felt really nice today to get dressed. I feel like I’ve been sitting around in lounge clothes all day, which is not ideal. I figured once I was done exams I would gravitate away from yoga pants everyday. Not so much. Once school ended so did my job (I was working as a Teaching Assistant), and it’s really hard to get a job when I’ll be moving to Toronto in July (at latest), but today I decided I was getting dressed in something other than sweats. I did end up going out, but I think I was getting so desperate to get dressed that I would have worn that outfit just to sit around my house and do nothing. How pathetic. Take pity on me and continue visiting WIB!
I must say, it’s much more enjoyable to take outfit pictures in warm weather! Plus, the flowers and all the green just look so much better. The sun makes me happy
I love this purse. I pretty much always wear my purses as satchel (across the body) because I just find it comfortable that way, but this purse can be worn pretty much any way. Plus the chevron print is awesome!
This doesn’t look completely posed at all. That’s one of my favourite spots in my whole house, though.
Yeah, that watch definitely does not work, but it’s cute. I probably wouldn’t be able to see it even if it did work.
Thanks for checking out my blog!
You can’t be into fashion and not be interested in what celeberties wore to the Met Gala. I wasn’t totally into the theme this year: Punk. But maybe that’s because my style pretty much has no punk influence in it. Regardless, there were some really interesting outfit choices this year. Some I loved, some I hated, some I appreciated, and some I just wasn’t sure of. Typical. One thing I know for sure is that I disagreed with a lot of the picks that Perez Hilton made for his dislikes and favorites (yes, I’m an avid Perez Hilton reader, I admit it). Anyway, I sometimes allow other people’s opinions to sway my own. I’ll like an outfit and then if a majority says they don’t, I tend to change my tune. It’s a terrible habit, especially for someone who hopes to get into the fashion industry. I need to be more confident in my picks, so here are just a couple of the ones that caught my eye. Agree, disagree, but be true to how you actually feel about the fashion!
By the way, if you’re into fashion, I really suggest checking out what others wore. I included 6 here, but there are so many others that are worth looking at!
I LOVED this. I might say it was my favourite, and I already know it made some worst dressed lists, but I don’t care. I’ve read other people bash on the print, but the print is my favourite part. It’s different and has an amazing 70s vintage feel to it. I love the ruffled train as well. So pretty and feminine! Paired with the dark lipstick and the lack of accessories, I think Kim Kardashian totally nailed this one!
Blake Lively got it right in embracing the theme, but not going too over the top. Plus, the dress just fits her perfectly. I think she definitely could have been a bit more daring. Perhaps done some wild hairstyle? I feel like I’ve seen this style a lot on her, but I couldn’t ignore how awesome the shape of this dress is. Plus, I love the black feathers.
I am in love with Kate Beckinsale’s shoes. Absolutely in love. No wonder she picked a short dress to show those babies off. I think the red and black combination fits the punk theme, plus those earrings are perfect for the Met Gala this year.
I think I tended to dislike the ones that were too out there, but maybe that’s because I’m not totally “out there” myself. I felt like these fashion risks didn’t really pay off. Having said that, I can definitely embrace daring fashions. You’ll notice I didn’t put Katy Perry or Sarah Jessica Parker on this list. Their outfits were too odd for me, but I totally appreciated what they did! But on to my dislikes.
She may be the Queen, but I just could not get on board on with this gown from Beyonce. I love the Baroque print, but the the top looks tacky to me. Seriously, is it pleather? And the weird boot? It honestly looks like a Halloween costume. I know it’s the Met Gala and the outfits are supposed to be “costume-like”, but I’m thinking cheap and tacky isn’t really the goal. This just didn’t work for me, at all. Her hair and makeup is beautiful, though.
This dress has SO much potential. It’s definitely not bad enough that I should include it on my worst dressed list (when compared with some of the really terrible ones). I think this dress just makes me sad because I know I could have loved it. It could be so regal and elegant, but what is up with the shape?? The shape makes Ashley Greene looks like a box, or she’s storing a whole city under that skirt. Obviously I’m not making a comment about her weight, at all (I would never do that); I just don’t understand how wearing a dress like that is flattering. I’m scratching my head over this one. Love the fabric and the cut of the top. So much potential…
And my LEAST favourite: Miley Cyrus. I get it, the theme was punk! And yes, we all know you’re not a Disney star anymore, but really, what is going on here that could be considered flattering? I think the hair is the most disappointing thing for me. I’m not a fan of her short hair in general, but whatever, if she likes it that’s all that matters, but come on, she could have done a cool mohawk style or something. These hair spikes with the fishnet is just WAY too much!
There are some REALLY bad ones, but I decided to only include three (google Ashley Olsen or Elle Fanning and you’ll know what I mean by bad).
I’d be at this forever if I actually ordered my picks from best to worst, but these are the ones that caught my attention. I just needed to get my two cents in. Let me know if you agree or disagree!!
My chambray shirt is kind of my obsession. You can seriously wear it with anything It works perfectly for casual days (paired with white shorts would look great for a spring day), it can be dressed up with a fancy skirt (tried that already with a black, lace skirt), or just as a cover up at the beach. I think it’s actually the most versatile item I’ve ever owned. If you don’t have one, I highly recommend going out and picking one up.
So here I committed a fashion statement I said I never would. I pulled a full on Jay Leno with this jean on jean look. I don’t know what inspired me to pair chambray with jeans, but I don’t think it’s too bad. Adding the pink shirt, lipstick, and colourful necklace made it not so in your face “look at me, I’m wearing all jean.”
And in case you were wondering, these were taken probably a month ago, so no, it’s not still snowing in Canada.
Hi all! I’m back
I figured I should try to get at least one post up in April. I would love to say I had a nice month off from blogging, but if writing about a billion papers is what people consider “nice”, then yes, I had quite the nice time…
Anyway, I’m glad to be back to blogging on WIB and sharing some of my outfits with people. I feel like I’ve pretty much been wearing yoga pants everyday this month; it was getting pretty boring. This month hasn’t felt particularly fun, and I’m excited to start trying out some new looks and putting some fun outfits together (my favourite thing to do). In July I’ll actually be moving up to Toronto to go to school for Fashion Merchandising and Marketing at The Academy of Design. I’m SUPER excited to get to learn more about what I’m most passionate about and hopefully turn it into a career! Anyway, let me know what you think about this monochromaic blue look. I’ve never been huge on monochromatic, or blue for that matter, but there was something I really liked about the look.
Can’t go wrong with pink lipstick paired with blue!
I apologize for the lack of creativity in the postings of these photos. A couple weeks ago my laptop crashed, so I’m trying to get use to using a Mac, plus I lost photoshop
Can’t go wrong with some nice, purple legs. Figured I’d let these pants make an appearance before it’s officially spring and all my bright clothes start taking over my wardrobe (bright pink pants were just purchased and I’m just dying to wear them). But for today, purple and new booties. Love these guys. I ordered them online and they actually fit! This is always a big deal considering I have giant, man feet (seriously, the majority of the time my feet are squished into a pair of shoes). This was one of those outfits that just came together very simply which is always the best. What do you guys think?
Added the necklace at the last minute because I felt like something was missing. Glad I did. I think is balances out the horizontal black stripes, which had the potential to make me look really wide. I think the black vertical nature of the necklace prevents this from happening.
Have a great Tuesday night all!
I’ve noticed a pattern in my pictures that I am incapable of looking at the camera. Legit. Every single picture I took when I was looking at the camera, my eyes were closed! Apparently I like trying to be mysterious by looking down. Is it working? Probably not. I need to work on my ability to keep these damn eyes OPEN!
Note to self: never stand in direct sunlight, or you could be mistaken for a ghost. Seriously, where is spring?! My ghostly complexion is starting to freak me out. In these pictures it may look nice and sunny, but trust me, I was freezing (there were some serious goose-bump pictures in this round of pictures).
So I’m not in love with this outfit (the bagginess of the shirt with these jeans gives me an odd shape), but I am a fan of the combination of pink and blue. I LOVE putting pink and blue together, especially royal blue and fuchsia (the colour of my lipstick). I love the mix of two such deep and vibrant colours. I also wore my new pink shoes, new pink earrings from Modern Mix Boutqiue (5$ off for WIB readers!), and just to be even more crazy, I added pink lipstick. Pink is apparently the colour of this spring, which I’m totally going to embrace (huge pink fan over here…the colour, not the singer). It’s so feminine and pretty, which is always the look I strive for when getting dressed. This was supposed to be a very laid back, girly kind of look. What do you think? Mission accomplished?
Sorry I’ve been kind of absent with my posts, but I’m back!
Today I’ve put together some cool bedroom decor inspiration. I’ve been going through a phase where I’m totally obsessed with room decor. I’m 99% sure I’ll be moving up to Toronto this summer, which means I’ll have an entirely different bedroom. I’m kind of attached to my current childhood bedroom. I mean, it’s been my room for 20 years now so it makes sense. In light of this, I’m pretty determined that I have to make my new room feel homey, especially if I’m going to be up there for 18 months (which is a possibility). Now I picked a ton of stuff from Anthropologie because I love the style there, but it’s soooo expensive. It’s really quite a shame. I love the vintagey and rustic feel of their store. I really wish I could take these exact items; it’d make for a pretty cute room. I especially love the mix of yellow and purple. I love that colour combination (I think this is only because my blog is yellow and purple so I’ve gotten use to seeing purple and yellow together). I also think purple and green looks really great. What are your favourite colour combinations?
OH! Another thing that I think looks really cool is when one wall in the room has some really crazy wallpaper pattern (chevron, anyone?) and all the other walls are white. I think that pop of wallpaper adds so much interest. Anyone agree?
Have a great Monday, all!

So today is just not my day. Everything just seems to being going wrong, but at least I’ve been able to find solutions to most problems (so maybe it really is my day!) It could always be much worst. Anyway, here’s what I wore today. In about 90% of the pictures I took my eyes were closed . No joke, it was actually ridiculous. Maybe I’m just sleepy (more like too overly rested!).
Today I wanted to combine my classy new blazer with something more casual, and what’s more casual than jeans and plaid? Pretty much nothing. Add a pair of boots and throw your hair on top of your head and you’re good to go! I also wore my new Farrah earrings from Modern Mix Boutique (remember readers get a 5$ discount till March 31st!). I absolutely love them. It was really difficult to get a good picture with my tripod, but these earrings will be making lots of appearances. They’re so pretty! Especially the turquoise stone, which I matched to my plaid shirt. I really love the combination of red, blue, and green. Lots of primary colours for me today. What do you guys think? Liking all the colour combinations or no?
Thanks all for reading. Obviously, you’re the best )
It’s that time of the week: weekly iPhone picture collage! …yeah, I’m trying to make it more interesting than it probably is. Sorry. BUT I will be back to getting some outfit pictures this upcoming week. I don’t think I got dressed this past week once in an appropriate, blog-worthy outfit even once (that’s what happens when you have the week off, lots of time time for sweatpants/yoga pants). I may not have been too cute this week but I sure was comfy! Anyway, tomorrow I will have some cool home decorating finds for a bedroom (I know this is a fashion blog, but home décor fascinates me too), but for now, this is what I was up to this week (apparently I was up taking pictures of myself…)
New shoes from Beyond the Rack. Like or dislike??
And remember this little deal for all you lovely WIB readers:
So if you’ve visited WIB before you might have realized I have a bit of an obsession with the pattern chevron. It’s definitely my favourite spring fashion trend right now. If I could buy every item above, I definitely would. It’s such a unique and interesting pattern, and something about it just screams spring fashion. My favourite item is probably the chevron yoga bag or the chevron pillows. Seriously this pattern is so versatile. What are your favourite items? Have you been rocking this spring fashion trend?
