Cozy in the Cold Weather

With the assignments piling up, midterms beginning soon and this cold, cold weather…it’s very important to stay cozy. Which is why I am sharing with you, my go-to comfy choice for those days you don’t feel like dressing up, going outside, or doing your hair.

Cozy Combo - Pearls and Polkadots

1 Baseball Cap| 2 Grey Knit Sweater| 3 Black Knit Infinity | 4 Grey Leggings | 5 Bean Boots | 6 Camp Socks

Cozy is pretty much my middle name, being that I love to be comfortable all day, every day and what is more comfortable than a pair of thick leggings, a great knit and warm scarf!? Nothing…Nothing is more cozy than that.One of my favourite pieces right now is the camp socks by Roots Canada – either men’s or women’s, both are PERFECT for wearing bean boots with!!

What is your go-to cozy item?


A Cozy Red Sweater

It has only been ONE WEEK since I moved back to school (I know, I said that yesterday…), but can you believe how slow the new year is moving? I don’t know if it is because I am totally on track with my resolutions (yay me!), or if it’s because it’s suddenly dropped in temperature. Either way, these last seven days have felt more like seven months!

Sweater: French Connection at Winners (similar here) / Necklace: J.Crew (similar here) / Pants: Winners (similar here) / Boots: American Eagle (similar here and here)

I picked this French Connection sweater up at Winners over the holidays. I’m sure glad I did now that we have this chilly weather (and by “chilly”, I mean freezing), I need something cozy! Red is always a nice colour for the Winter season because it livens things up (enough with the white and black!!). These dress pants are super comfortable (also from Winners…can you see a trend here?) which I picked up to wear to Christmas lunch with the family!! These boots are really old, but shearling trim never goes out of style!

Now that the holidays are over and school is back in full swing, I am making sure that I continue on a great routine. Being organized is a better way to live, if you ask me. I am on track with all of my resolutions, staying organized, eating moderately better than I was in 2015, and (so far) on top of my studies!

Can it get any better than that?

Cheers to the New Year!

42 Party Looks to Try this Season…

42December is the month to try the greatest of party looks out. There are Christmas parties, work parties, NYE parties…which means style needs to come out! I see this time of the year as a time to be daring, beautiful and rock whatever you want to! Tulle, sequins, glitter…the works are brought for this season and it is awesome! As Pinterest is my favourite procrastination tool when studying for finals, today I am bringing you a whopping 50 party looks YOU need to try this season! 


@jilliandillon THIS is what I want to wear to the periwinkle or navy with silver shoes. ;):

Tulle is such a great fashion risk for a party look! Not only can you dress it up, you can also dress it down and make it look less ballerina and more chic! Who says you can’t rock a tutu in public? If I can get my hands on one of these…then I would rock it hard!

Shorts and tights are a great way to keep it casual, while dressing it up. I love this trend because it gives you the best of both worlds! Plus, sometimes, you just don’t want to put your cute pair of shorts away for the Winter! Why not rock em’ out for the end of the year?

Barefoot Blonde - Sequin Skirt:

Amber / Barefoot Blonde

Sequins and glitter are great to liven up the party outfit! I also love to accent my outfit with sequin pieces…they certainly make a statement and for the holidays…it is the number one choice in my eyes! You aren’t going to wear a gold sequin mini skirt to work, right?



Jessica / Hapa Time




Alana / Alana Marie Style

Peplum top + Skinny leather pants + neutral pump... I love it!:


Jessica / Hapa Time

Leather on the bottom makes for a great look and I love how casual and dressy they can look! If you want to rock the full leather pants, then leather leggings are a great option – especially for a holiday party!



Grace / A Southern Drawl 


Helena / Brooklyn Blonde





asos black dress

Jean / Extra Petite

Everybody knows that the LBD is an absolute essential in a lady’s closet. When the holiday season comes around, it’s always good to have your trusty LBD hanging there ready to be wined and dined. You really can never go wrong with a look like this – why? It’s cute, simple and effortless all in one neat little package!

Holiday parties come in all shapes and sizes, and sometimes they call for a cozy blanket scarf over a five inch pair of glittery heels! These cozy looks are perfect if you are staying in with friends or going to an intimate gathering. Still dripping with style, but style in comfort!

Red is probably one of the best holiday colours out there. There is nothing shy about the colour red and how it is used in the looks above is exactly how you should rock it this holiday season! Whether you are sporting the LRD (Little Red Dress) or using it as a complimentary colour…all is well in the colour red!


Slip into this velvet dress for any holiday occasion and look absolutely stunning!:

Red Velvet Xmas <3 (by Imogen De Souza)


Velvet is such a great fabric – the texture is a real statement and you can do so much to compliment your look with it. Pair it with tights, put a tunic underneath for a more business casual look, or dress it up with some jewels and sparkle and you have a dazzling New Year’s Eve look!

Plaid is always a great option. Patterns are fun and fun to try and mix – especially for a fun night out with friends! I love tartan shirts, shorts, skirts and dresses…they are a great option and I love how they look in the holiday season.
