A Change of Heart?

Chunky knits over winter jackets? Yup i'll take it! Although it's not sayonara to winter jackets as it's still winter here, Ill take the warmer days.



Scored this knitted sweater from H&M on sale, a couple months ago, and I have nothing like it in my closet. I was automatically drawn to the colour. I visualized this outfit with grey jeans and my 2 year old white pumps (which by the way I've never worn until last week)



I've been super hesitant on wearing them. Let's just say I'm not a fan of white shoes. I've never liked the way they've looked. Like a flower girl walking down the isle, or those little blue smurfs with the white booties its a constant reminder why white shoes did not own a place in my closet.


 Fast forward to last week, I wore two pairs of white shoes for the first time in life! (Yup your girl was hella confident)  Now I'm not going to say that I'm officially obsessed with white shoes, but I think they might be growing on me. With that said, I'm not sure if I will be adding any more to my closet.



What are your thoughts on white shoes? Do you love them or can you do without? Let me know how you feel in the comments down below

New Year Resolution or New You?

WOW... What a year!  I can't believe that 2017 has come to an end. I remembered like it was yesterday counting down the minutes till 2017 and now here we are doing the same for 2018. I am elated and blessed that I am able to see another year and spend it with my loved ones, however I must confess that I'm afraid of what 2018 holds. The suspense of the unknown is what scares me the most! 

I was almost sure that 2017 was going to be my year. As I scrolled through my IG feed, a plethora of resolution posts had me feeling shitty for not having a new year resolution.  Who am I kidding? I've written this list a million times before only to stop at my top two. On top of that, I had friends proclaiming that 2017 was going to be their year and it would be mines too. HA! (I'm still looking for it ) Although 2017 wasn't all Losses, I still wouldn't count it as my best year either.

I felt like I was putting in so much more energy than I was receiving. 2017 started off with a few wins but went down hill as fast as 2018 came around. Financially I was not where I wanted to be, emotionally I was a wreck, career wise I felt like I should've been self employed , or at least doing something that I loved, friends who you thought would ride out till the end in wheel chairs together with you, just ended up being a bunch of fakes. Despite it all I still had family, my health and most of all God. 

I promised my self to not look back into 2017, however it has taught me a lot about myself and gave me some time to reflect on all the things that I need to change about my self going into the new year. Ive also learnt to speak things into existence, mean it and then live it. "SPEAK it, MEAN it, LIVE it" my mantra for 2018. I will walk with god going into the new year, seek him more and walk into the new year with faith and not by sight! 

Now that I have a 2nd chance, let's try this again, 2018 is going to be my year and yours!!!! I know it and proclaim it. Now let's get it!!! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR

xoxo TY

Yellow Situation

I had so much fun shooting this look. I was organizing my closet one day and came across my yellow motto jacket, or should I say my neglected motto jacket, and instantly a light bulb went off in my head. I have these random moments when an outfit comes to mind and I immediately write it down in my notes on my iPhone so that I won't forget. 



How did this look not come to mind sooner? Its so bold, yet effortless. The stripes against the yellow is eye catching and so on trend. 
I finished this look with my OTK Aldo boots. You know the one that I wear in almost every post!. lol 



The backdrop for this post works amazingly well with this entire look. Fall being my favourite season, can't you see why? Look at all this beauty around me, Its hard to focus on my outfit. 

Wearing: Zara~ Jeans, Jacket, Striped top, ALDO~ purse and boots, Oliver Peoples~ sunnies


Hope everyone is enjoying the last days of the year. Scary how fast it's approaching. 2018 is waiting for no one! Bittersweet if you ask me. As much as I hate saying bye to a new year (cause reality kicks in that we are getting older) I'm happy to start a new chapter as 2017 was not my best year. Life was made to live, so live it up, loosen your collar and have fun.

MY GO TO SKIRT!!

For those that have been following me for a while, will definitely remember this skirt.  Four years later and I am still kicking myself for not buying it in black. It's such a great fit, and to top it off it has pockets. On another note Im pretty sure you are getting tired of seeing these boots. This is another example of a great buy. Ive worn these boots with almost everything in my wardrobe. They are my fave go to boots, and I plan on wearing them until the heel falls off... lol literally




In the past year I've learnt to do MORE quality shopping and LESS quantity shopping. My mentality then vs now? I always thought well $100 bucks can get me at least 5 pieces of clothing. which in the long run doesn't alway last (poor quality). I get one and two wears.. if that, call it a day, and move on to the next item. 



However, when you shop quality pieces, they will last as long as you'd like them to. This is actually a great way to add staple and classic pieces to your wardrobe. Although you might pay more than you wanted to spend, it's worth it in the end. 



SPLURGING: Is in a league of its own, and no one seems to need any help doing that! lol However when splurging, always make sure its something worth splurging on because once you've spent that money and worn the item theres no turning back. 





Hope everyone is shopping these amazing BlackFriday deals. Remember to shop smart.

Rustic Vibes

Not sure how to convert your summer pieces to fall?  Its pretty easy. Actually a lot easier than you think. 
Layering is key. I also love texture mixing. Take for example this pleated pants, one of my favourite summer pieces. I didn't do much layering with this look as I didn't think it was needed. However I did layer with a cropped motto jacket and threw on a hat. That's called layering to a minimum. 




The hat and Jacket instantly gave these summer pants a fall vibe. To take this look up a notch I could have worn booties and perhaps an oversized scarf, but that was not the look I was going for. 


While I am still trying to master the art of layering, some pieces are lot easier to layer than others. This was an easy look, however layering more than 5-6 pieces all at once can be a challenge for me. Layering and making this process look flawless requires a well trained eye. I will be trying this out in the next couple weeks and will update you guys with a few posts on how I did. 







Whats your thoughts on layering? 
Lets talk about it.. drop a few lines below in the comments.

Rojo (Red)

Taking a much needed break from heels and opting for comfort instead. If you're into fashion then you know by now the plaid trend has taken the fashion industry by storm. Its everywhere. I went for a more chill and laid back look, however what I love about this set is I can wear it with heels, sneakers and even as separates. Which is a BONUS in my book. 


Can't believe how FAST the year is coming to an end, It feels like just yesterday we were welcoming 2017, and in a blink of an eye the year is pretty much OVER.  With just one more month to go, New Years resolutions are already in gear.. I personally don't care for a new year resolution, as I do not like to put a limit or label on things, however I will continue to set goals for my self and work hard until Im where I wanna be. 



Looking for a Red Coat to ado your collection this winter? J.crew has some amazing deals. Personally I wait for black Friday deals to snag up anything with a pricey tag.  
Here's the link to a similar one like I'm wearing in the above pic. J.Crew Red Coat

IN THESE STREETS...

A very simple outfit in the making. I loved the simplicity of the skirt, therefore I paired it with a white Tee and a leather jacket to add a bit of edge and threw on my tall boots. 

Can't wait to wear this skirt again, paired with chunky knits and long sleeve bodysuits. I'm here for it all.....




Outfit: Zara-T-shirt, skirt  Mackage-Leather Jacket, Aldo- boots, mini purse
