the only outerwear you need

10.20.2014

These are basically the only jackets/coats you will need to get you through the cooler seasons...or life in general. Every year the same styles keep coming out in trend reports, on the fashion scene, in your favorite shops, etc. These are styles that will never fall out of trend and even if you do spend a pretty penny on getting the perfect one for you, it'll be worth it as they will remain in your closet forever. Instant classics!
To complete my collection, I am now missing the trench coat, and maybe a few others in a basic black color.
What is missing in your closet?

a trendy way to stay warm this fall

10.16.2014

I purchased this cape at Forever 21 a few years back, at least over 5 years ago. And believe it or not, I’ve never worn it. I wish I had an answer for you as to why not but I haven’t got the faintest idea. Since the weather has been too cold for just a sweater but too hot for a jacket, I decided that this would be the time to dust it off and put it on. So glad I’m somewhat of a hoarder.

 Also many different ways to wear and utilize this in your everyday life:
  1. Wrap a belt around it at your waist.
  2. Wear it as an oversize scarf.
  3. Don’t just use it as outerwear over your top but wrap it over your jacket too.
  4. Tie it around your waist to create a makeshift kilt.
  5. Use it as a blanket.
  6. Wrap it over your head to protect you from rain.
  7. Use it as a tablecloth.
  8. Wrap your wet hair in it after your shower.
  9. Use it as a baby swaddle.
  10. Use it to be a stylish superhero.

Honestly people, the list just goes on! ;)
How would you guys wear a cape?
 
P.S. Outtake of this photo shoot at end of post or is it just another way to use this cape? Use it as a shield!

off the grid

10.15.2014

Sorry for being MIA but if you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that I was away on Holidays with my family. Pictures of that trip to come soon. But first...
 
It's been a while that I've been seeing the "grid" trend popping up on blogs and fashion websites everywhere and I'm so glad I'm able to finally take part. I'm so happy that I waited because I came upon this perfect cozy sweater that will keep me stylish and warm throughout the cold months up ahead. In the meantime, our Indian summer hit therefore why not girly it up a little with platform sandals and the ideal neutral colored pencil skirt.

Which is your favourite design?
