Simplicity

I am totally digging this off shoulder trend, anything to accentuate my shoulders and d├ęcolletage. 




It just works. Fashion is a funny thing, it's risky, safe, bold, subtle, trendy, vintage . It's whatever you want it to be, and with the off shoulder looks trending right now I think its here to stay. Just like how skinny jeans became a classic wardrobe staple, or your classic white button up. These are classics for a reason. 


Outfit: H&M- top Zara- jeans and heels, ALDO- mini purse Spectacle sunnies- Oliver peoples 


I've labelled this a classic of mine because it works for literally anybody. I've seen the cutest little girls (toddlers) wearing this style and believe it or not I've spotted a few grandmas too! 


Did I mention the bell sleeves on this top. How cute are they? LOVE the extra added detail with the tie strings. 


This bag is a new favourite of mine and has been my side kick for the past few weeks. Reminds me of the Mini Dior purses,  which one day I hope to add to my collection. I purchased the inspired look by ALDO. They totally nailed it.  iIt also comes with a longer strap, if you plan on wearing it ass a cross body bag.

Modern Day Tux

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians and for those of you who have not yet celebrated well Happy thanks giving in advance. 

Reflecting back on my Thanksgiving, I have so much to be thankful for. A lot more than we even know or expect. While emptying my remains into the trash, a feeling of guilt came over me. Was I taking for granted what so many people wished they had? 

Growing up in my household, we were not allowed to leave the dinner table until we ate everything off our plates. Maybe that was our parents way of teaching us not to be wasteful and instead be thankful for what we did have. Too young to understand the motive behind their actions, I must say 
"I GET IT NOW"







It's like I had tunnell vision all these years. Simple things like running water, clothes and the luxury of being able to swipe a card to pay for things that we probably 90% of the time don't need. How can you think you're taking this for granted when its the norm right? Well sadly we do without even noticing. 

I am not here to be Mother Theresa but I do want to spread awareness and to give back where ever I can. It puts a smile on my face to know that I was able to contribute to my kids thanksgiving Food Drive, and help someone that is less fortunate than I am. The recognition is NEVER my goal. I think with good work and being true to yourself recognition will come after and present itself at the right time. 








Now that I got that off my chest.. 

This Black & White look reminded me of a Tuxedo, but with a feminine twist to it. You'll know I'm a sucker for anything off shoulder so I had too. 




Outfit: Zara-pants CL-heels  Winners- Top

Hermes Orange

The weather here in Toronto, has been unbelievably hot for September so I decided to take full advantage of it. A photo shoot followed by the most delicious food, at a near by cafe and a BONUS view on the waterfront. 



The vibrant Orange colour of this jumper, instantly reminded me of the Hermes box. (hence my post title) I snagged this jumper from my local F21 about a year ago and sadly just now got around to wearing it!  Honestly I'm surprised it still fits, as I must confess I haven't been keeping up with my daily exercise routines. I'm just not that type of girl.  Of course it's easy to yell "GOALS" at the perfect shaped, chiseled Ab, IG babe on your timeline, however you see the way my life is set up...I'm just not about that life. Ill go hard for a week, maybe even two!! but physically and Mentally I was done before I even started. You know what they say "ABS ARE MADE IN THE KITCHEN" so in that case it shouldn't be that hard finding things to eat right? 





Outfit: Forever21- Jumper, Zara - heels



These shoes were also purchased on sale for a whopping $15. (purchased 2 yrs ago) And yes I am just now wearing them for the first time. What would Carrie Bradshaw do? HA 

I wanted so badly to pair this look with my oversized denim jacket however it was way to hot for that. Maybe next time.

FLOWERS IN FALL

WELP!!!  As we know summer is over. Sad to see it go especially since I did not get to enjoy it at all.  Since I wasn't popping much tags this summer, I guess my outfits will have to wait until next summer to be worn. So many outfits so little time. 

Summer I hate you and love you all at the same time. HA! sounds like a relationship. 




Outfit: H&M- pants and top, Aldo-mini purse, Fashion Nova-sandals, Balmain-sunglasses 



This floral set is the comfiest 2 piece I've ever owned. Inspired by sleep wear, this trend is however quite old, but so wearable. I know lots of people who are not too fond of this trend, me being one of them, but as of recently I decided to try it out. I think the print was what really got me. I love a good print. 






To some, this might look like your plain old pyjama set, you know the ones your grandma would give to you on christmas all nicely wrapped with a fancy bow. The beauty of this set is that it can be worn separately paired with jeans, a tank, a bralette, a body suit you name it! 

How do you feel about the pyjama/sleepwear trend?

GIRL BOSS Pt.1


GET INTO THIS LOOK.... I have been stalking Zara's new collection since it dropped and I must say my tastebuds are fashionably satisfied. This blouse has has been in my shopping cart way too long. So YES I caved. Your girl hit that BUY NOW button, and I am like a kid on christmas day. Sadly a new piece of clothing will do that to me.

The vibrant colours on this wrap blouse was just way too cool to pass up. Even Instagram approves as I've been seeing this top on almost every girl on my timeline. 
What can I say? It's fall approved, It can be worn at least 4 different ways, and it looks damn good on. I paired it with these white pants for a classier "GIRL BOSS" look , however I've worn this top with almost everything. 

I will be sure to upload pics of the many ways I've worn this blouse in another post. (stay tuned for that! be sure to follow me on Instagram as I post most of my outfits on my account prior to my blog) 

How do you feel about Zara's new Fall collection? Have you checked it out? What are your thoughts on pricing? Let's Talk..


Outfit: Zara blouse, Zara pants, Fashion Nova heels 




Happy Long Weekend

FLORAL REMINDER

As I sit here typing out my thoughts, it brings back memories of how much I've missed blogging and interacting with you guys. So much has been going on, and I must admit it's been hard balancing everything on my plate. Although my intentions was to never abandon my blog, I must say that I needed some time to regroup a lot of my thoughts and things in my life.



Midlife Crisis? Naw not yet!!  On another note I've been noticing that blogs are slowly becoming extinct. Yes!! I'm talking Dinosaur extinct!! WTF? You can thank Instagram for that. I love me some IG but nothing beats the power of blogging. Definitely the same podium but with a different audience.  What do you guys think? Comment below and let's talk. Its seems to me that the younger generation is leaning more towards vlogging than blogging. Oh how times are changing. 



I've been struggling with my weight for the past year. A tug of war that doesn't seem like it wants to end. One minute I'm at my goal weight the next I'm squeezing into clothes twice my size. Sigh... 


In other news.I'm excited to say I've launched my new purse line called *drumroll please* 
Purses & Poms. Please be sure to check out the website. The colors are a bit summery (since the collection was supposed to debut in summer) however I will be launching darker colors as we head into the Fall season, so be sure to check it out! 

xoxo TY

Basics for all the Basics....

HAPPY NOVEMBER peeps...


So I decided to slay in this basic LBD. The word basic is such an understatement. My most "basic" looks are my favourites.  I guess I am a Basic Betty kinda gal. HA! 




The ribbing details was what caught my eyes at first, and of course the colours on the sleeve and neckline. Im into midi dresses more these days. I never thought I'd slowly be ditching the shorter hems for longer ones.. (eeeeek Is this a sign that I'm getting old?




Wearing; F21 Dress, Giuseppe boots, Cheap Monday Sunglasses, Celine Handbag, H&M bracelet, Marshall's pompom 


On another note I've been adding these little furry friends to all my purses and accessories. Such a fun and inexpensive look. 




Hope you guys are enjoying this amazing Fall weather.
