The Ecstasy of Gold*

 



Hoodie, TNA (Aritzia). Tee (old). Skirt, Guess. Scarf, H&M. Purse, Marc Jacobs. Boots, Winners. Sunnies, Dolce & Gabbana. 
Ring, Rachel Roy.

I have never been a fan of gold, but with it being everywhere the past few seasons I couldn't help but succumb to it. I have actually come to enjoy playing with little bits of gold details. As such, this look was inspired by the gold clasp in the belt and eventually improvised with other pieces as I went along.

Enjoy your day!

*Aptly named while listening to Metallica's S&M album.

Gothic Script

 

  

Shirt & Sweatshirt, Forever 21. Jeans, Zara. Jacket, Winners. Boots, Dollhouse (Lulus). Sunnies, Ray Ban.

Was really rushed for brunch and it was very cold outside so I opted for some quick layering, all down to my socks and legwarmers. This graphic sweatshirt from Forever 21 has a fleece lining that makes it super warm and cozy, new favourite for those chilly days.

Vintage Houndstooth & Faux Fur


 
 
Coat & Sweater, H&M. Skirt, Vintage. Boots, Winners.

I saw a faux fur and houndstooth mix somewhere and thought I'd attempt my own version. Used all recycled pieces to bring different prints and textures together. I enjoyed the contrast of the faux fur against the wool houndstooth skirt (which happens to be a vintage hand me down from my mom) and used tan vegan boots to tie it all back to the neutrals of the fur coat.

Happy weekend! xo

Teal



Jacket, Danier. Sweater, H&M. Jeans, Zara. Belt, bebe. Boots, Dollhouse (Lulus).

Last weekend's getup for catching brunch. I've started cinching sweaters with a statement belt as a way to revive older knits. It's also a quick way to add a little bit of flair to an otherwise somewhat boring outfit. 

Happy Monday!
