OOTD: Pop of Colour

It seems I’ve been MIA recently… to be honest, I don’t have an excuse for myself. 

But never fear dear followers, for I am back and have a fresh new take on my OOTD posts! 

Lately, I’ve been really loving the black and white trend. It’s huge for spring and it honestly is a timeless look. I feel like the classic combination of these two shades is so simple and easy to work with, giving you a solid foundation for experimenting with other colours. Either worn alone, or with a pop of colour like I’ve done here, the black and white trend is considerably chic and edgy.

I love this outfit. It is simple, clean, and daring all at the same time. And I love how the red wedges give a punch at the end, almost like a finale to the ensemble .

For this look, I paired my new favourite black and white striped top with a pleather skirt and threw on some semi-opaque tights underneath. On my head, I thought I would have a little fun and wear my black bowler cap.

Yay for bowler caps! They are so versatile and unique, and still on trend. I am in love with mine and I really need to invest in some more, preferably in pastel colours.

For my other accessories, I kept it minimal, with just my gold geometric shapes necklace and my two favourite bracelets. Finally, on the bottom I have my new red wedges (I got the same ones in black, too).

OOTD: Work of Art

Image

Sometimes you need to step back and take in the landscape. Or, in this case, the art. My university is very art based, and these paintings done by the visual arts students set the perfect background for this laid-back, hipster-influenced outfit. I wanted to go for comfortable yet chic, but I still wanted to play with some edge. I put on my all-time favourite knit sweater, and tucked it into my pumpkin high-to-low skirt. I liked the way it was taking the colour of my favourite season, fall, and contrasting it with a crisp, spring white. To add that edge I mentioned earlier, I opted out on my JC Litas–which would have been my first choice for this look–and stuck with my vintage combat boots. The great thing about these babies is that they were locally made here, in Canada!

Finally, for my very basic accessories, I went for my favourite cross necklace. Normally, I flip it to the black side, but I felt my outfit needed a little… something. So I turned to the Leopard print instead.

Thanks to Sonia for working with the lighting on these ones! Oh, and putting up with all the people walking by. That was fun (not).

Items worn:
White knit sweater: F21
High-to-low skirt: Ebay
Combat boots: Thrifted
Necklace: F21 (of course)

Until next time,

A day of shopping at BC’s biggest mall called for a spot-on outfit, accessories and all. I decided to follow the ‘it’ trend this season–the classic duo of black and white–from head to toe. To add some dimension to the … Continue reading
