I recently met one of my friends downtown for a lunch date at the Holt Renfrew Café. If you've been following along, you know that I like to get dressed up when I head downtown! The weather was nice so I put on some tights and threw on an old dress from H&M! I then styled it up with my Céline bag and Louboutin boots! Love a good hi-low outfit and black and white with a pop of red never fails!
The other day, I was having a lazy day lounging in bed and binge watching Friends when my brother texted me, needing a ride to his truck. He told me he was waiting outside for me and needed me to get there as soon as possible. I had less than five minutes to get up, get dressed, brush my teeth, put my hair in a messy bun and get out the door. That morning, I had been lusting on a pair of jeans that 7fam posted on Instagram and I thought that I had some similar ones buried deep down in my closet so I pulled them out to wear. I quickly found that they were four sizes too big (HOW?!) but I rolled the top over and decided to style them as boyfriend jeans because after all, I was in a rush. I pulled on a white T-shirt, a leather jacket and some Christian Louboutin boots for good measure and then headed out. When I got home, I decided to take a photo and post it on Instagram and to my surprise, it was one of my most liked "outfits of the day". Here is the magical outfit that I clearly must repeat in the future!
I had to go visit my shoe cobbler last week and as he is downtown, I felt like dressing up! For some reason, every time I go downtown, I want to take my outfit up a notch! The weather was still pretty cold (-25) but I didn't care! I think this is my new favourite outfit!
We've been pretty lucky with the weather in Edmonton lately but not too long ago, we experienced a typical cold spell. To stay warm, cozy jackets, boots and scarves are essential!! It also doesn't hurt to have a Starbucks coffee in hand either!
What I wore: J.Crew Cashmere Sweater; 7 For All Mankind Jeans; Aldo Boots; Forever 21 Jacket; H&M Scarf; Lord & Taylor Cashmere Gloves; Céline Bag
