Culottes For Fall – How to Transition from Spring/Summer [STYLE]

Toronto had some cold weather a few weeks ago. We were all certain Fall was here. Heck, the leaves had even started changing colour. And now here we are sitting in 20°C+ weather. In the Spring/Summer I loved wearing culottes. I’m not ready to part with them yet, so here’s how I plan to transition into Fall with them. Culottes For Fall Lookbook I wore my culotte pants with a short high neck sweater for a roof top brunch. It was the most perfect pairing for that day. Especially because it was a little chilly. I’m rocking my suede heels and when it gets colder, putting a blazer or a bomber jacket on top can work as well. I prefer longer blazers to go with these pants and fitted bomber jackets.

5 ways to wear a womens necktie

You may have seen the womens necktie at Zara (Which was first $20, then $10 and now on sale for $3.99), magazines and dare I say, the Kardashians. Aside from those places, I’m sure if you asked your mom, aunt and any working woman from the 70’s/80’s, she’ll tell you that the womens necktie is a spin off of the pussy bow blouse. So these ties we’re rocking in 2015/16, are really a tribute to the boss ladies of the 80’s. Nice. Check out the documentary – Makers: Women Who Make America, a three-hour documentary on the history of modern feminism that aired on PBS. Meg Whitman, CEO of Hewlett-Packard said:  “We used to dress in suits with a skirt and a jacket with button-down shirts and a little bow tie, because that was sort of our interpretation of the man’s tie…It was our attempt to be feminine but fit into what was then…

Different shades of Camel

Camel, so many different tones and ways to style this classy chic colour. I think I first fell in love with this colour when I bought my first camel colour coat from H&M for $20! It was $100 regular price, so you can imagine how excited I was! I’ve had this coat for a few years now and I love wearing it. As you can see in the below images. 🙂 Pairing camel with anything leopard always looks really good! I usually wear a leopard print scarf with this coat. Here I was going for that Kendall Jenner AMA’s look. Not 100%, but definitely 100% messy. I blame the windy day.  I was going for the @KendallJenner#AMAs look😊#beautyblogger#KendallJennerpic.twitter.com/tBy0VeE0US — Humara Kausar (@HumaraKausar) November 26, 2015 Don’t be shy, try combining different shades of camel. Get a little risky and even pair camel tone clothing with sneakers! Preferably all white…

How to style a chunky cardigan

I should really change the title to “How I styled my chunky cardigan”  but a how to sounds so much better. I got your attention didn’t I? I love chunky sweaters and cardigans. Like wearing a cozy blanket. Chunky sweaters can be really heavy and overpowering when trying to pair with accessories or other clothes. Chunky cardigans are easier. Not as heavy, still cozy and you get to show what you’re wearing under your cardigan. I love dressing comfortably. Whoever said you can’t be comfortable and fashionable at the same time was wrong.  Easy as.. 1. You need a chunky sweater/cardigan 2. Skinny jeans/leggings 3. A statement accessory << For more inspiration check out this outfit >> High waist jeans: F21 // Shoes: Kate Spade Keds // Crop turtleneck: F21 // Chunky Cardigan: No Name from Korea // Satchel purse: French Connection

Hoods up, Sunnies on

Just one of those “hoods up, sunnies on” type of days. I got this sweater a while back online from The Bay. It’s from the Style & Co brand. When I first looked at their items I was a bit turned off from the styles and options they had but if you keep going through their items you’ll find something that speaks to you and your style. I opted for this sweater because at the time I was pregnant and loved the flowy idea for more belly space but I also knew it would be something I’d wear after as well. I guess most of my casual wear is loose fitting and flowy. My sisters call it “dressing cute”. With all that black going on with this outfit I needed this sparkly clutch to add some pizzazz.

Goodbye Maternity Jeans

My little one is almost a year old! Eight months to be exact and tell me why I’m still wearing some of my maternity wear?! And don’t say it’s because I haven’t lost the weight. Because I have. Not all of it. But still. To be honest, it’s because my maternity wear is just so darn comfortable! I’m sure other mama’s can relate. These maternity jeans are from ASOS and the material is really stretchy so I was able to wear these throughout my entire pregnancy and even after. The stretchy band at the top however has gotten more and more loose on me over the months since I had my little one. And now the time has come to say goodbye and put them away. But seriously, if you’re looking for trendy cool maternity wear then ASOS is your best bet! P.S Get their maternity leggings! Most tops you can purchase…

What I Wore: Baroque + Overalls

I feel as if I may have written this somewhere before, but I love Korean fashion! (And that’s before our trip to South Korea). Toronto has many options when it comes to shopping for looks directly from Korea. Especially on Queen St! If you look carefully you can find some nice stuff from Spoof!, a boutique on the corner of Queen and Spadina and there are a few more whose store names I can’t remember. Kathy?! Something like that. There have been times where I found some unique outfits made in Korea but they didn’t have my size. Most girls there are petite in terms of their frame, not as much for height. But if you really love it don’t worry, do as I do and turn a dress into a pant shirt combo or wear it with leggings! Short sleeves? I layer a longer sleeve shirt underneath or just…

What I Wore: Faux Fur & Cashmere

Hello OCTOBER! I love Fall! It’s so weird to say Fall is here when you don’t see any tree’s with leaves changing colours. It truly feels like Fall when I see either almost bare branches or colourful trees. Sorry not sorry for those who live in climates where Fall doesn’t look like that.  WHAT I WORE: FAUX FUR & CASHMERE Just a regular day, strolling the neighborhood I picked out some new and old clothes to create this look. This COS Cashmere toque from the lovely people at Globe Style was styled with some awesome customized pins. Definitely a different style I’ve never tried before. What do you think? The pin is in. @finalfashionartist’s latest illustration (it’s @dior of course) for the back page of #GlobeStyleAdvisor A photo posted by Globe Style (@globestyle) on Oct 2, 2015 at 7:38pm PDT One of my favourite things we did when we…
