Smothered in Plum: StyleByToyoC x Leota NewYork

Hello,

Happy New Month! I know it is the 11th month of the year and some of you are still anxious that you haven’t gotten to where you are based on your new year resolutions/dreams. I just want to remind you, don’t give up on your dreams because it is not going in the direction you want. There are different routes to the same direction. I hope this encourages someone reading this today.

Orange you glad to see me?

Hi,

How are you all doing? Before this shoot, I was wearing these over the knee boots, heard a pop and fell to the ground. Thank God I can walk is what the doctor said so that means it might not be that serious. I am still waiting for my scan results, really praying everything is ok.

In other news, it is Halloween weekend, I don’t celebrate halloween but I love everything that has to do with pumpkins. I got inspired by the orange colour and found this dress. It is getting cold in Calgary now and its going to snow this week, not looking forward to that. On my Instagram page, I have been showing my love for different things apart from fashion and doing this makes me pay more attention to my location venues for my shoots. I finally did a video shoot also and I cannot wait for the video. I saw this dress and love the knot detail and the fabric just made me fall in love.

I am taking over LifeInCalgary’s Instagram page and I have to say I am completely nervous but excited at the same time. This would be my first takeover and will give you access to a life as a fashion blogger. The takeover starts on Monday Oct 30th – Nov 5th 2017. Please support and check it out. I was telling my friend that it is funny how you go after certain things, you get it and you feel so nervous and start asking questions. Are you good enough? She encouraged me and said  you can do anything. So I want to encourage someone today, your dreams should scare you and motivate you to be better. Always give your 110% because you don’t know who is watching.

Check below for outfit details.

#YYCBloggerFallChallenge – Falling For Camel

Hi,

Happy Monday!

Couple of weeks ago, I came up with an initiative and included Calgary bloggers. The $100 YYC Blogger Fall Challenge is an initiative where we show our followers and people how to look good this fall within a budget of $100. The rule of the challenge is to come up with as many looks as possible within a budget of $100 (excluding shoes and accessories).
I wanted to include fall colours for the challenge so I picked two colours, camel and burgundy. You all know how I feel about black, I’m sold on it so I decided to get a camel open knit cardigan to complete the look. I wanted to keep it simple and fresh. What do you think of this look? It is so easy to replicate. Outfits details below. You can shop my looks/similar styles on my sidebar.

Olive You…

Hi,

I’ve been feeling under the weather lately but work continues. The weather in Calgary changes, one minute it’s sunny, the next it’s cloudy and snowing. That was the story on my shoot day. I am not a nature girl but I love to appreciate scenic views. The view of the city line is everything. Typically, people hike to get to the top to appreciate the view but I have a confession I don’t like hiking but I’m willing to try it but not anytime soon. If you are looking for a great place to take pics, work-out or just a night walk, this is the place McHugh Bluff Park. There was no place to shoot this olive sweater dress and I just wanted this view as my backdrop.

Something About Black….

Hi,

First, I want to say thank you for the love on my last post. People who reached out on my social media platforms and here, thank you!

I have been revamping my page on Instagram and I am totally loving showing all the things that inspire me and love (most of the items are on wish lists, lol). Over the next couple of days, you will prolly see me rocking black a whole lot. There is something about black I love, I can’t just explain it…black outfits just make you look great and timeless. But for me, its not just outfits, even interior decor, a mixture of black and white or black and gold is heavenly.
