Chic-Rebel

 

I can’t believe the year is almost over, no matter how much I love the holiday season, I very much despise the cold. This year it feels as if we skipped the fall season entirely and went straight to winter. To bring back the last bit of fall before it leaves, I wanted to share a simple sunday stroll OOTD with only a glimpse of skin so that I don’t freeze to death. If I had the time (every girl’s excuse), I would definitely add a dark berry lip to this ensemble just to add an extra punch of rebel to this look. Even though the top is very grunge and biker, I tried to add a bit of city chic with a flowy, sheer blouse & some preppy pinstripe skorts & (the winter staple) knee-high black leather boots.

I think the little bit of skin shows a smidgen of sexiness that I know every girl has and also helps to lengthen them legs! Even though I don’t have slim legs at all, this skort + skin + knee-high boots combo makes your legs look like they could go on for days. (Trust me, I’m pretty short at 5’2″ but this combo definitely helps me one step closer in achieving Kpop idol looking legs). Just make sure to tuck in that blouse into the skort to make your hip appear higher and so that blouse isn’t hanging loose and looking frumpy.

A Walk in the Park

A-walk-in-the-park

Long time no post! I have realized that it’s been a long time since I posted something. I have been meaning to these past two months, but every time I plan to write a post school work seems to finds its way into my stressful life. I am so sorry that it seems that I have neglected my wonderful readers. This time I genuinely promise that I will have at least weekly (maybe even biweekly) posts in the new year.

As some of you may know, once every year I spend 4 months of my time building my resume through co-op. This year it seems that I will not be staying home, but going to my dream city, New York! This is a milestone in my life that I want to share with all my readers, so a weekly posts will come your way for sure. IN ADDITION, a special project will be launched starting the new year! Please support this special project when it launches on New Years Eve Dec 31, 2013 at midnight!

Now for the reason why you are here, my OOTD! My kindred spirited friend wanted to take pictures of me after her photo shoot with her special someone (cue the CUTENESS). It was her first time using a DSLR so hope you like her photography skills as much as I did!

DSC_0142When these photos were taken, it was slightly chilly, thus the presence of the scarf. Nothing like the cold weather we have been getting here in Canada. This scarf is so warm and soft like a bunny, it will definitely be making an appearance in other posts in the future.

I wish I could wear these shorts everyday, they are simply stunning. I couldn’t pass them up in the change room even though $60 is super pricey for a pair of shorts. UNLESS they were made of real gold, then that’s a STEAL!

OHHH the sun is coming up and I stand in awe of the BRIGHTNESS

Bye bye for now. I hope you enjoyed this impromptu OOTD post. I’ll post back in two weeks after these finals are over.

This past weekend, I went back home to Toronto and went hunting for summer dresses. Knowing me, the dresses needed to be eye-catching, unique and edgy. Tick, tick and tick for this White Lacey Dress from Forever 21 for $39.95 CAD.

I guess it’s my shopaholic needs, but once I buy something, I ought to wear it ASAP! Thus, I chose to wear it today to school and stick out like a sore thumb in this humid 28 degree weather. What a bad idea it was, but at least it was breezy and I got lots of compliments, mostly “I love your dress” and “OMG, what’s the special occasion!” Ladies (and Gents), let me tell you, you can wear whatever you want, if you stick out like a sore thumb, so be it, wear whatever makes you confident in your own skin.

Last comment before we jump to the pics, I couldn’t resist strapping on my trusty military boots from my previous ALDO haul post for this outfit, it just added that bit of me into this girly ensemble.
