Admittedly, I had originally planned to pair this look with tights. More than anything, their main purpose was to shield my legs from the numbing cold. However, my memory got the best of me (again) and the tights were left neatly placed on my bed for me when I got home that night. But while I was standing outside with bare my legs, I realized that maybe I was never suppose to wear tights all along. Maybe this was a subconscious way of rebelling against Winter and telling Mother Nature to shove it.

There are times when even the best of things must come to an end. This is the final look I put together with this black shirt, hopefully exposing the versatility of what basic pieces in your wardrobe can achieve. Pairing it this time with my well loved pair of boyfriend jeans and my new favourite pointed toe suede boots we have an outfit that is cool and effortless.

For the second part to this series, we’re dressing down and keeping things casual. I paired the black top with my favourite pair of blue skinnies for a look that says ‘lunch with the girls’ or perhaps, ‘I only have 3 minutes to get dressed for work but still need to look put together’ or maybe even ‘I know I wore this yesterday but I liked it so much I’m wearing it again today.’ I guess what I’m trying to say that it’s a simple versatile look that can be worn for a variety of outings. But whatever you decide to get dressed for, I wish you the best of luck.

With a new season approaching – I know you’re out there somewhere Spring!! – it can sometimes be hard not to indulge in new pieces from spring collections. After splurging on a few items myself shortly after Christmas (oops), I told myself enough is enough. So, for the next little bit I’ve decided to stop spending money on clothes and instead, try to rework my closet.
I put together three different looks all using the same sheer black shirt. I thought this shirt would be a good “base” item since a lot of people have shirts similar to this. But if it’s not your cup of tea, you can always substitute with something else like a crisp white button down or a cozy knit.
Huge shocker, I’m starting out with an all black outfit. These boots have been sitting in my room, unworn for about a month now which is super impracticable and I felt the need to style them with one of these looks because I was starting to feel a little guilty for even buying them. The boots are on the edgier side and create the perfect contrast when paired with the more feminine silhouette of this shirt and skirt combo. For my makeup, I chose to go with a blown out bronze smokey eye and an ombre red lip.
