Your style is who you are and your individuality. That's something that's unlike any other, so I wanted to showcase different vibes and show different people's style. Yves Saint Laurent said it best when he said "Fashion fades style is eternal" it's true! I mentioned that quote in another post I did on my favorite fashion quotes. (You can check that out here) Be yourself and know one else.

Comfy Sweater & Bold Prints

Shirt: Old Navy Jeans: Old Navy Sweater: H & M Boots: Aldo Bag: Ross Middle Finger Ring: Ross Gold Chain: Old


You won't believe the amount of compliments I received on this look. That's just crazy to me because it's honestly such a simple look. It's definitely going on the favorites list though! A lot of people thought that the collar was separate, but it's actually a shirt underneath! I love the print because it's unexpected and so bold. Y'all know I love a bold piece and stuff that's unexpected. Since I wanted the shirt (collar) to be the focal point of this look I kept everything else simple.
You don't want to do to much when you already have a stand out piece. Whether it be a bold printed shirt, like in this case or even your accessories. Every little detail counts folks.
I grabbed some regular blue jeans, and my my go to boots. I was so pleased with how everything turned out and would definitely sport this look again.

Giving me the cold shoulder

Sweater: Old Navy Scarf: Ross Red Pants: Levi's Bag: Ross Shoes: Aldo Watch: Aldo

The cold weather is finally among us, and I can honestly say I'm excited and ready for it all! I love the Fall and winter time because I get to have fun with my wardrobe. You will be seeing plenty of layering soon lol.

When it starts getting into the colder months and the weather begins to drop, people can sometimes get lazy with there outfits. You throw on some comfy sweats, and a sweatshirt and you're out the door. Now I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with that, because trust me I love me some comfy sweats and nice cozy clothing. I'm just saying that it shouldn't stop you from actually getting dressed ya know.

My sweaters and scarfs quickly become my best friends. ­čÖé Is there anything wrong with that? There's just always there for me lol nothing better than a reliable piece of clothing.

Tumblr Tuesday: Favorite Pics This Week! 6

There is something so chic' about wearing black. Anyone can pull it off, it's super easy to do, and plus it makes you look slimmer. Now who wouldn't want that combination.. come on. It's such a versatile color as well. It can be very high fashion and still turn around and make it streetwear. Plus on top of all that you can always find something to wear! That is a big deal (at least for me it is lol). Sometimes I can take hours to figure out what I'm going to wear and how I'm going to wear it with something else. With black you can do any, and everything with it!

What are you favorite ways to style black? Comment & let me know! I'd love some new tips and ideas. 

Jeans that last forever

8.20.2016
Shirt: Rue 21 Cardigan: Levi's Jeans: Levi's Shoes: Aldo Necklace: Hot Topic Satchel: Ross

There'a nothing like a great pair of jeans! I mean come on, I know I'm not the only one who's thinking this. When you can find a great pair of jeans, you feel like you've hit a gold mine. This is a hard task for a lot of people. You have to make sure they fit well, it's a good shade of denim (dark or light), distressed or not, and a big deal is of course the price. Levi's are always a great go to pair of jeans for me because I know I can always count on them. They definitely check everything off my list of qualifications.

This piece can either make or break an entire look, that's how serious it is lol. You want to look good don't you! If you have a great pair of fitting jeans then you won't have any problems, trust me.
I loved this look, from the mix of prints, to even the colors (even though there isn't much). I added in my green Aldo shoes for just that reason, you all know I'm a fella with a thing for color. Each look has a splash of something lol.

My Collab with Lana from Lifestyle Queen Bee!

8.08.2016

SO I HAVE SOME EXCITING NEWS!

I have teamed up with a fellow blogger to do my first collaboration! 

I have teamed up with Lana from "Lifestyle Queen Bee" We put together a list of interview questions and we each answered them. Lana picked her top 10. Below is the list of 10 questions she answered for me. (I answered the same for her on her blog so check that out)

All answers provided by Lana herself:

1. Can you tell the readers about yourself and your blog?
"My name is Lana and recently, I married my husband who I've been with for 11 years. We also have a 4 month old French Bulldog, Bruno. In March of this year, we moved from our hometown of Ottawa to Toronto. I have always been interested in fashion, beauty, Home Decor & anything DIY. I started my blog, Lifestyle Queen Bee, as on outlet to discuss the things I love and share them with like minded people."

2. What do you think is the best service a blogger can provide to his/her readers?
" Content that you are passionate about. Blog readers are very perceptive. They can easily pick up on your energy through your writing. For example, if you love fashion but write a post about cars because you think this will give you better traffic, this will come through your post. I only write about things I am passionate about or have found useful in my blogging/business journey. I think that's important for a blogger to do."

3. What would be your ideal work environment?
"Anywhere I want to be whether it's at home in my creative space I've made for myself or on a beach on vacation. Starting this blog is not about just writing for me, it's a goal to term this hobby into a full-time source of income."

4. How do you manage time to run your blog efficiently?
"I'm OCD so being organized and having time management skills come naturally to me. I use planners (electronic and hard copy) to keep myself organized with what I'm posting and when. I also create lists of blog topics for the future, write down tips and tricks in a notebook I've dedicated to my blog."


5. How do you want to improve yourself in the next year?
"I'm definitely looking to strengthen my blogging skills whether through online courses or attending related networking events. As mentioned earlier, my goal for the blog is make it my primary source of income so working towards that will definitely be a top priority next year."

6. Do you have any specific goals for you blog for the rest of the year?
"For the rest of the year, my goals are to boost my followers on my various social media channels as well as my blog and preparing myself to grow in 2017."

7. What do you do in your spare time?
"In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going shopping, to the movies, reading and doing anything creative."

8. Where would you like to be blogging five years from now?
" In 5 years, I would like to have a successful blog that has allowed me to work full-time through it. I'm also looking to expand it into a business from the blog so hopefully by that time I have launched something."

9. Can you name some of your favourite bloggers and explain why they are your favorites?
"One of my favourite bloggers is Oh Joy! She is basically my role model for blogging. She has taken an idea and made it into a blog which she then grew into an empire. That is exactly what I'm aiming for with Lifestyle Queen Bee."

10. How do you motivate yourself to keep the blog up and running?
"Thinking about the ability be my own boss and to work from home (or wherever I choose), make my own hours, have the time to spend with my family and friends and do what I what when I want motivates me to keep going. Keep writing/posting blog posts. To keep pushing the blog through social media. To keep doing anything & everything to help me reach those goals is motivation enough for me."

I want to give a huge thank you to Lana and participating in this with me!

Tumblr Tuesday: Favorite Pics This Week 5

8.02.2016


First of all before we get into this week's post can you believe we're already in the month of August! My my my how time flies. Now let's get into this weeks post!

This Tumblr Tuesday I had the perfect color theme in mind. A peachy/nude aesthetic was the exact look I was going for. I have always been a fan of this palette and color scheme. I just wanted to show it in different formats. From your home decor, to fashion, all the way to food!

I think it's such a calming color and oh so chic'. I don't have much of this color, if any in my wardrobe, but after doing this post, I definitely plan on changing that soon lol.

The color nude has actually been taking over at fashion week and it's been seen a lot on street style blogs. This is a color that has been kind of overlooked because it's "monotone" and "unimaginative" connotation that people have placed on it,which is interesting because in reality that minimalist look is great because it leaves room to explore. It's open to imagination, making it very versatile color.
