Outfits Inspired by Essie Nail Polish

I think this is officially the most random post I've ever done! I was choosing what colour to paint my nails the other day and I noticed I had a lot of pastel shades, all from the brand Essie. And I thought it would be cool to put together some spring outfits inspired by them, since it's finally spring (well, almost, we are getting there!). Pastel shades never go out of style for spring in my fashion books!

The Polishes

Left to right: Turquoise & Caicos, Mint Candy Apple, Muchi Muchi, and Lilacism

Outfit #1: The Blues

Top: Forever 21; Cardigan: Hudson's Bay; Pants: Smart Set; Necklace: Accessorize

At the end of winter last year, I remember all I wanted was a pair of bright blue pants. It was a big jump for me, since I usually just stick to jeans. But I went for it and I'm so glad I did! These pants are great for spring and summer because they are very lightweight and breathable. Pairing different hues of the same colour is a very chic look, and a simple upgrade to the basic jeans and tee outfit!

Outfit #2: Purple & Mint

Camisole: Garage; Cardigan: Bluenotes; Shorts: Aeropostale; Necklace: Forever 21

I love pairing spring colours together- especially deep purple with mint. And you didn't think I'd do a blog post without something floral, did you? You could definitely substitute the shorts for jeans, especially here in Canada- it won't be warm enough to wear shorts for another two months at least!

Outfit #3: Pink & Lace

Dress: Forever 21; Cardigan: Jacob; Necklace: Forever 21; Belt: Garage

Of course, I save my favourite for last. I bought this dress towards the end of the summer and I can't wait to start wearing it again! As you know, aside from floral, lace is also one of my must-haves. Paired with the cardigan, this look is the most classic of the three. 

And just in case you were wondering, I ended up painting my nails lilac :)

Concert Tee Outfits

I've been meaning to do this post for a while now and since my class was cancelled today I had a little extra time to put together three outfits that I would wear with my concert t-shirt. I went to Bluesfest and saw Fun. last summer, so that's where the t-shirt is from.   

 Cardigan: Old Navy
Jeans: Aeropostale
Bracelets: gift
This first outfit is the typical way I wear my concert t-shirt. My style is definitely girly, so I love the bright pink cardigan for a pop of colour.

Plaid shirt: Urban Planet
Jeans: Aeropostale
Bangles: Forever 21
This is probably what I would wear if I had bought the shirt before going to the concert. You can definitely substitute the jeans for denim shorts and sneakers of your choice for a laid back, festival vibe. 

Jacket: Vero Moda (at Hudson's Bay)
Jeans: Aeropostale
Necklace: This & That Axesoir
This third outfit is a little bit more edgy. What would also work well would be a bunch of gold stacked bracelets or a chain necklace. I bought this jacket in October and was so excited to wear it the next day, but the temperature dropped (of course) and has stayed that way, so believe it or not, I have not even taken off the tags yet! 
Let me know how you style your concert tee! :)

Presentation Outfit

Hey everyone, so last week I had a presentation / debate for my psychology class, and here's what I wore :)
Other than that I think my fashion has been stalling, on account of the never-ending cold weather...

Top: Simons
Blazer: Eclipse
Pants: Dynamite
Bracelet: gift

Also, does anyone know how to upload videos to Blogger? It gives me an error message every time I try. And yes, I'm in the process of creating something new for this blog; if only it would work!
