Fall in Summer

BRRRR. It’s freezing cold here. (Freezing is equivalent to below 20 degrees.) It’s still SUMMER but between the massive rainstorms and cold breezes, days have been pretty chilly here. Chilly enough to wear a bomber jacket/canvas parka, my fave!

When I used to be fashion-less (gasp!), I always thought green would not look well with my yellow skin, but surprise Surprise, canvas green is actually one of the most complementary colours! That’s a bummer for my wallet, because that means one more item in the closet! Thank goodness for the Aritzia End of Season Sale, I invested in a green bomber jacket to keep me all nice and warm during these breezy days. Lucky for me, I found this jewel for $55 (originally $110, I know!)

Now let’s see how I styled this jacket for some warmth, but also breathable…

Bomber Jacket: $55 Aritzia
Green Sheer top: gifted from my lovely friends who bought it at Dynamite
Brown Belt: Dynamite
Leather Pants with mesh paneling: Topshop $40

Tip: A belt is a must to carve out that hip and hourglass figure!

I like braided skinny belts because I can adjust the length easily with each braid instead of the next hole.

It’s actually pretty breathable with the sheer top catching all the wind.

What can I say. I’m a penguin..

Tip: Don’t slouch or else you will unconsciously slouch more and more. Lesson learned.

Here’s the side profile, the jacket is actually pretty soft. Too bad it says “DRY CLEAN ONLY”. Sorry Aritzia, but I don’t have the money to dry clean all my clothes -.-

A trademark for all bomber jackets, the ribbed collar line.

These combat boots have seen better days. I also reviewed them here: https://stylestickynotes.wordpress.com/2013/05/20/haul-shoedazzle-aldo/

These leather pants are so thin, the line down the centre makes the legs seem thinner and the mesh panels give some wind to the legs. What’s there not to love?

My hip sunnies from Aldo 2 for $20.

 

Really you can add anything you want with this jacket, it’s super versatile. I would see a floral dress, tiered skirt, hoodie, white shorts, lookin’ good with the jacket.

When I shot the photos for this OOTD, I curled my hair after missing my beachy curly from a year ago, quelle surprise! (why are their so many surprises…) Anyways, since I missed my curls so much, I decided to camwhore T.T This was the result….

Bright lips are a necessity for the summer.

Photo Reel: Canada Day Fireworks

DSC_1241

This is a long awaited post, but I couldn’t just throw away all these pictures and wait for next year’s fireworks, so here is the Canada Day Fireworks from July 1st. This year, I was able to be in Waterloo, Ontario and watch the free fireworks hosted by this small city. I innocently did not know what to expect, but as we walked closer and closer to the field, we saw how big of an event this actually was.

DSC_1229 DSC_1231 DSC_1232 DSC_1242

It was much more crowded than I expected it to be, so we decided to sit on the risky, 50+ degree sloped hill and enjoy the fireworks from there. After taking a seat, I couldn’t move for a good 30 minutes in fear that I would slide down the hill. I hope you will enjoy these fireworks as much as I did! Let’s relive some fireworks:

I know I’m craving some fireworks right now, or maybe it’s more appropriate after my finals… Until next time!

Summer Metallics

DSC_1197

These days, it’s hot and humid. Weather I just don’t want to walk in if I don’t want to sweat buckets and bathtubs. Ok, maybe I’m exaggerating just a wee bit, but it is 30 + degrees everyday in Canada, so I can’t imaging how hot it would be in Florida or LA O.O

I have been having a crazy week of group projects and expect to have a “hell” week at school next week, so before I lose motivation, I will post this quick OOTD post for you . (Also because I am bored since my parents are taking a call while they are Skype-ing me T.T)

DSC_1198

Blue Round Sunglasses: Aldo 2 for $20 deal
Mint Blouse: F21 Hong Kong ~$5CDN, $35HKD
White Printed Skirt with front slit: H&M $15 (on sale now!)

DSC_1188

Turquoise Clutch with Gold chain: Aldo $40 (similar to: http://www.aldoshoes.com/ca-eng/handbags/clutches/product/94735488-spotted/59)

Some old gladiators from last year. Gross!

Random bangles from random Aldo and H&M bracelet sets collected over the seasons

Alone, this outfit could pass as a “Business Casual” outfit that you can wear to family dinner outfit, a date outfit (just change to higher heels and better shoes), a business conference outfit. By adding different jackets, accessories and shoes, we can achieve a more casual or more formal outfit. Whatever floats your boat. For more formal wear, opt for a collared shirt/blouse instead or add a black blazer and switch to some closed-toe shoes.

For a more casual outfit, we can add a sweater of your liking or the PLAID shirt (a piece making its comeback as an accessory, tied around your waist or draped over your shoulders). Here’s some examples.

DSC_1201 DSC_1202 DSC_1214 DSC_1216

In case you haven’t noticed, my skirt has some metallic sheen to it, the gladiators are a chrome metallic colour and as usual I have my arm candy in tow. If you would like a close up of the skirt, send me a message and I’ll show you the close up of the metallic sheen and the intricate pattern.

Hopefully, I’ll have some time soon to go through my firework pictures from Canada Day and make a picture reel of fireworks!

Until later.
