Default Setting – Black Vibes

Hi,

I haven’t posted in a couple of days because I honestly didn’t have any content (just being lazy lol) and I didn’t want to just post anything up on the blog. Moments when I feel like this, I hit the reset button and that’s where you see me wear my default mode colour -black. I love colours but there’s something about resetting, taking a quick break and getting more colour inspirations to share with you. Do you have a default colour you wear when you have no inspiration? I would love to know.

Berry Blast Wednesday

It’s a berry blast Wednesday, Happy Hump Day.

We are closer to the end of the week and I did this shoot a while back when I thought spring had arrived in Calgary. Just so you know, I was feeling all cute but I fell sick the next day after exposing my body to the sun deceiving cold weather lol. I was meant to shoot new looks for the blog yesterday but didn’t happen. We will try again on Saturday, in the meantime enjoy this berry blast jumpsuit that only costs $38. Do you believe?

Jumpsuits and I –> A match made in Heaven. Being petite, I have always been drawn to jumpsuits because it is very flattering on my body. The great thing about jumpsuits is the versatility. You can layer underneath with a sweater, or on top with a jacket (didn’t do that because I was feeling myself) and pair with a nice sandal. I have linked my favourite black bags and I’m really loving the brand Jacquemus. I need to treat myself; conflicting thoughts ; Staycation/Vacation/Jacquemus (shoe & bag). Help me guys!

Anyways, bag to the shoot,I have never done a parking lot shoot so I was excited when Henry said “Toyo, let’s try this location”. I am happy how it turned out and I have linked similar jumpsuits to pull off this look.

Pastel Heaven Series – Pink Panther

Hi,

I have been feeling lazy uploading on the blog, my mind and body needs a vacation soon. I promised I would do more pastel colours and fulfilling with this beautiful pink power suit. I remember going to Zara weeks ago seeing this pink on the mannequin and the pants were available but not the blazer. Fast forward to last week, I checked Zara and this two piece was just waiting for me. Okay, so does it happen to you that you are in love with an item and you check the store and the size available is yours? I consider that the “meant-to-be” moment and makes the buying decision easier.

I am so obsessed with two pieces that I am looking to add more to the closet this spring especially with the pastel series. I am thinking of doing a pastel combo soon and still working on it. I have linked similar power suits, earrings and shoes.

Yellow Daze

Happy Hump Day! Half-way through the week and I can’t wait for the weekend. I live in colour but yellow seems to strike a connection with me in every single way. I am absolutely in love with co-ord sets and this was not an exception because it was in one of my favourite colours. The neck detail drew my attention and I knew it was take home worthy. I got this green satin shoes recently and I knew I had to pair with my yellow set. At first, I wasn’t sure about buying satin green but the more I wore it around the store, I couldn’t let go so she had to join the shoe collection.

I have linked details of my outfit and similar outfits to achieve this look.

Perfect Transitional Piece For Spring – Tweed Jacket

The previous week was so busy that I didn’t have the time to upload this post earlier.

Spring weather in Calgary is unpredictable, one minute you are in sunshine and the next minute it’s cold and that’s why the perfect transitional piece for spring is a Tweed jacket. I personally believe a tweed jacket is a wardrobe staple and elevates an outfit to the level of elegance and sophistication. The great thing about tweed is that you can style it with a tee and a pair of skinny jeans. If you are adventurous, you can do a tweed ensemble (blazer + skirt). This season, tweed suit sets are in trend and seen with brands like Lafayette New York and Theory. I’ve had this jacket for couple of years and was excited to style with my mom jeans.
