Lately it's been difficult to take outfit photos due to the unpredictable weather and poor lighting situations. Today was a cloudy and rainy day, so I had to use artificial lighting which is why the photos seem a little yellow. Oh well, what are ya going to do, right?
Today I wore one of my favourite pairs of Black Milk Leggings - Van Gogh's Le Café. When I discovered Black Milk, most of the art pieces were already in the museum. Luckily, I was able to snatch these off a sharkie from Black Milk's trade and swap facebook group. I love this painting! I actually have a print of it hanging on my wall in my flat.
I also want to talk about this cocoon cardigan. Holy uber bat wings. Although it's sort of confusing to actually find the arm holes and put on, I like this sweater because it's like wearing a drape-y blanket. Super comfy outfit, I gotta say!

Fall is here and winter is approaching fast. It's time to layer up and get cozy! Fall is one of my favourite seasons - the leaves start changing, you can wear cozy sweaters and scarves, and Christmas is just around the corner! Nothing better than to curl up on the couch with a cup of coffee or tea, light a candle, and watch movies , shows or read a book. I'm absolutely loving some of the trends I'm seeing this year, here are some of my favourites:
Mint, pale pink, lilac, periwinkle. Seeing a lot of pastels this winter is refreshing. It gives a bit more interest to an outfit rather than just black on black on black. There's something about wearing pastels while there's snow on the ground that's so beautiful to me. I think they look great blended with white neutrals or contrasted with blacks and greys.
This coat is a dream. It goes perfectly with any outfit and just looks so sophisticated every time. This is just a staple piece that anyone with any style can pull off.
It's no surprise I'm in love with these sweaters. They're exactly something you'd find in my wardrobe! Fun, bazaar, and just out-there prints! They're so realistic and printed in such detail, you'd definitely turn some heads while wearing it. These sweaters make a statement so effortlessly, that it makes getting dressed in the morning very easy.

Yesterday I spent a lot of time improving my blog, mostly the side bar. I decluttered it, hopefully making it easier to navigate and follow. I'm quite pleased on how it turned out.
I strayed away from my usual colourful look today and went for something more monochrome. I love the idea of florals in the winter and this skirt was perfect! Even though this whole outfit is black and white, there's still some interest with the floral details and the cutout back blouse. As you can probably tell, I actually have a flat iron now! I prefer the way my hair looks curly, but it gets so tangled, I never can run my fingers through it. First world problems?

I absolutely adore this skirt, but I bought it a size too big! Whenever I wear it I have to pin the sides for it to stay up - boo.I have styled it with this adorable sweater with a kitten wearing a cape and a unicorn horn. It's a perfect match. Metallics are amazing in the fall/winter, especially coloured metallics. Shine on lovelies!
What are your favourite trends for fall/winter? I'm thinking pastels, tartan, shiny metallics?

I've been treating myself to a little retail therapy over the last couple of months - online shopping can be a dangerous thing, but some things are hard to pass up. Lately I've been obsessing over velvet, tartan, holography, pastels, and of course.. cats. After this haul, I think it's possible to say I own too many cat-related items of clothing. Here are some of the things I've bought over the last month or so.
Mike Wazowski Sweater from Romwe.
It's obvious that I absolutely love the print on this sweater, it's the reason I bought it. I'm a huge fan of Monsters Inc and Monsters University and am obsessed with anything related to those movies. The quality of the sweater is surprisingly good. I find it can be hit or miss with Romwe, but when it's a hit, it's probably one of my favourite items in my closet. I ordered a size small (which can be risky on romwe, I usually order a medium to be safe) and it fits great! The sleeves are plenty long enough, but the only weird thing is that the waist band is a little tight causing the fabric to bunch a little (you can tell in the photo), but it doesnt cause any discomfort while wearing.
Lame Sweater from Romwe.
My wardrobe was lacking warmth.. I needed more staple long sleeve shirts to wear when it gets cold out and I thought this shirt was great. It fits well, it's warm, and its print is pretty and fun.
Unicorn Kitty Sweater from Forever21
I had to have this. A combination of two of my favourite things: cats and unicorns. It's a cat dressed like a unicorn! I love everything about it: the colours, the print, and the warmth (it's lined with fleece!).
Crazy Cat Lady Skater Dress from Black Milk Clothing
I was so happy when Black Milk released something with cats. Not only is the print absolutely amazing, but the skater dresses... Oh my! This is my first skater dress from BM and it will not be my last! These dresses fit like perfection. They're extremely flattering and comfortable.
Blue Velvet Cutout Dress from Romwe
This dress is very flattering on my body. The front is very plain and elegant while the back has most of the details with the bow and low-back cutouts. The only thing I need to pull this off perfectly is a backless bra - a bando or bra just does not work with this dress. I think this might be my Christmas dress.
Tartan Scarf from Front Row Shop
After a lot of searching, I found the perfect tartan scarf. The colours are exactly what I was looking for and it's the perfect size. Thick, warm, and cozy!
Purple Haze Leggings from Black Milk Clothing
If you follow my instagram, you've seen these described as lilac holographic goodness. Not only are they my favourite colour, but they shine rainbows! These are seriously magical on my legs.
Five Cats Skirt from Romwe
Another print I couldn't say no too. How cute are these kitties? The skirt look better in real life than on the website, the colours are deeper and the print is crisp.
Dainty Floral Skirt from Forever 21
I thought this was a great floral piece for fall/winter. This monochrome skirt would look great with all black or all colour - very versatile for a floral.
And that's all folks! Thanks for reading.
