MY STYLE: SUMMER SKIRTS PT. 2

With the official arrival of fall less than a week away, it’s now or never for one of my last summer style post! Although the days have already started to cool down, and I may have already indulged in a Pumpkin Spice Latte (or two), I am still enjoying some of my summer pieces – one of them being this fabulous skirt from Lane Bryant.You may remember another fun skirt that I picked up from Lane Bryant in the first part of my Summer Skirts posts. I grabbed this colourful piece at the same time because if there’s one thing I love more than skirts, it’s skirts on clearance!

I was drawn to the bright pinks and oranges of this piece, and once I tried it on I discovered a bonus little treat: pockets! It was super comfy and the elastic waist allows me to wear it lower down closer to my hips, or higher up as an empire style, adding an extra layer of versatility. To complete the look I paired it with some fuchsia flats and an ombre necklace to compliment the shades in the skirt. This outfit turned out to be perfect for lounging poolside with my feet dipped in the water!

MY STYLE: PEPLUM TOPS

Happy Holidays, everyone! After a few fun-filled days of family, food, and gift giving, most of this chilly afternoon will be spent relaxing with the fella, binge watching House Hunters International (it’s a guilty pleasure), and bringing you one of my favourite fashion trends of the moment : Peplum Tops.

Peplums are a magical strips of fabric that are gathered and attached to the waist of a jacket, blouse, skirt, or dress. Why magical, you ask? No matter what your body type may be, peplums draw your eyes inward, giving the illusion of an hourglass shape. Bonus – they’re super comfy, so you get the shape without having to wear uncomfortable, constricting shapewear. Dressing up during the holidays is all about having fun and feeling fabulous, and peplums have you covered!

These sparkly numbers are a local find from Your Big Sister’s Closet in Toronto. The white one caught my eye immediately, reminding me of a fresh blanket of twinkling, white snow. I left with the white one,  the matching royal blue version, and a list of holiday parties I knew they would be perfect for. Which colour is your favourite?
