Saturday #ootd

I love lazy Saturdays!!  After sleeping in until 10:30 and watching a couple episodes of Orange is the New Black, which by the way is amazing, I decided to go to the Eaton's Centre for some retail therapy.  Really, I just wanted to go to Sephora to purchase Boscia - Bright White Mask, after trying a sample, which turned into a mini shopping spree... OOPS!  Since I was just quickly running some errands I couldn't be bothered getting all dolled up.  So, I threw on some aqua patterned jean shorts, a ruffle detailed silk tank, black gladiator sandals, silver necklace and bracelets, a high bun and makeup-less face completed my look.

Friday #ootd

Happy Labour Day Weekend loves!  I always try to make the perfect balance between casual yet trendy but still work friendly on Fridays, and this outfit fits the bill.  Bold coral patterned dress shorts with a white tank blouse with black lace panels, layered gun metal necklaces, black gladiator sandals, the usual stacked silver bracelets, and silver boyfriend watch.  I finished my H2T look with a high, straight back pony, thin liner, pink cheeks, and rose lip.

Thursday #ootd

After an extremely long day at work I was heading out for AYCE Sushi and Thai Food at The Spoon and Fork in Etobicoke with my girlfriends.  Since not having much time to change inbetween work and dinner I needed to put something together that was office appropriate yet perfect for dinner and drink afterwards.  I decided on this white floral lace mini-dress with black gladiator sandals, gun metal spike and rhinestoned statement necklace, stacked silver bracelets, and my boyfriend watch.  For hair and makeup I went with a light curled do, pink blush, nude lip, and thinly lined eyeliner.

Wednesday #ootd

Happy Hump Day everyone.  I woke up this morning tired and not wanted to get out of bed thanks to the horrible rainy, dark weather in Toronto.  After struggling to get out of bed for over an hour, simple pieces, hair, and makeup were needed so I could leave at my regular time and be on time for work.  My favourite skinnies were paired with a white and black zebra print blouse.  I once again accessorised with turquoise accessories which included a pendent necklace and velvet peep-toe pumps, as well with my usual silver stacked bracelets.  A simple braid, touch of mascara, and pink blush were all I needed to finish off my look.

Tuesday #ootd

With summer almost over I am trying to get the most out of my favourite summer outfits and this dress is definitely one of them.  Although I purchased it last summer, I have since gotten a lot of use out of it both casual and dressy.  I love the bold floral pattern with the contrast of vibrant fuchsia and white.  Jazzing it up with, my favourite colour combo, turquoise accessories, camel strappy sandals, pulled back ponytail, winged eyeliner, pink cheeks, and a natural lip.
