Balmy and Beautiful

28 Dec

Hello Glamourites,

I know for me I always want to be stylishly dressed whenever I leave the house but that can be difficult during the winter months when the temperature drops. I’ve compiled some outfit ideas that you can take inspiration from to keep warm and still look fashionable! It’s been a fairly warm Christmas where I have been but I have a feeling after New Years we’ll be in for some cold days ahead…I’m definitely not looking forward to that. Personally I wish it was summer all year, guess I gotta move to Hawaii if I ever hope to get that. Hope you all are having a fun and relaxing holiday xx Glamour Planner

A sweater such as this, made of wool or polyester is the best type of fabric to go with for winter as it keeps the moisture out and the warm air in. You may assume cotton is another smart choice to go with, think again, it is an extremely absorbent material and will soak up all the moisture around you. Pick a unique colour as it will stand out and add some personality to an otherwise typical grandma sweater. balmy_sweater

LAYERS. One of the most efficient ways to dress I find. With my temperature issues, too cold when outside and overheating once inside it is easy to shed a layer or two depending on how hot/cold it is. Plus you can mix and match all sorts of colours and patterns making for an exciting outfit!

Purchasing a signature winter coat can be all you need to spice up an outfit if you are out walking the streets running errands. A colour like this plum burgundy is a beautiful shade for the dull days of winter.

A fur vest of any type is an excellent addition to an outfit as it creates an instant elegance that is effortless and keeps your core body warm and cozy through the day!

My ABSOLUTE favourite winter accessory/secret is scarfs. I have a huge plaid scarf with about 5 different colours that goes with anything and everything I’m wearing and when I open it up it’s as large as a blanket. Having that around my neck it just about doesn’t matter what else I have on I will be sure to be toasty warm!

Skipping to Summer Style

29 May

Hi Glamourites,

I don’t know about you but I am more than ready for every day to be filled with hot sun, sand between my toes, and  a cold drink in my hand. Bring on summer! We have had a day or two of sunshine but I’m ready for Spring to pass along the torch to Summer! In saying that, I was hoping to do a wardrobe update and add some summer dresses. On a hot summer day or evening it’s so easy to slip on a dress and always looks very put together and cute! Here are some of my favourites – check them out xx Glamour Planner

The perfect beach dress to throw in your bag to use after a day at the beach!

During summer it’s fun to add bright colours to your closet – somehow it makes you feel energized.

Love the asymmetrical hemline used here along with the abstract pattern.

You can never go wrong with a little white dress anywhere and anytime in summer! The back scoop and lace adds a beautiful effect.

The flare on this dress makes any afternoon more exciting!

That Tutu Touch

11 Oct

Hello Glamourites,

I hope everyone had a great week and an even better upcoming weekend! As usual I go through my daily sites and look for anything that inspires or catches my eye, this week it happen to be tutu’s. Surprisingly, because I’ve never worn a tutu {well besides when I was 4 and did ballet..} but in these particular outfits I really like it. I may even have to go purchase one for my closet. Take a look and let me know your thoughts on tutu’s  xx Glamour Planner

This would be my tutu style skirt if I owned one ~ I like that it is long and a more edgy colour.tutuLong

I would also totally wear this {when summer rolls around again} a perfect neutral colour to pair with anything!

Here is an example that could totally be pulled off this fall/winter, a much more full skirt added with some gems and put together with a sweater and belt. tutuWinter

The shape of this skirt just says classy to me, the length, how the panels fold and the waist line ~ perfect for dress up. tutuclassy

If all these tutu’s are still feeling too girly for you, throw on some black leather and heavier pieces to dull it down. tutuLeather

Go to Basics

17 Sep

Hello Glamourites!

I hope you are having an enjoyable week so far! I know I am already looking forward to the weekend myself! In fashion we are constantly trying to find out what the latest trend is, the newest designer or the biggest name brand. This can be difficult and tiring, believe me. Sometimes I find it helpful to go to the back of my closet and pull out the basics. The ones that are so simple that when put together they make a statement. I love doing this because it’s a great opportunity to wear those clothes that you haven’t been able to be wear lately. You feel much more creative mixing and matching until you chose a winner outfit. These outfits I have selected are what I would think are most likely in many of our closets (or something similar) and are appropriate for many occasions. Take a look and maybe tomorrow you will find yourself digging in the back of your cupboards. xx Glamour Planner

For this outfit I really enjoying the solid shade colours, black, grey and white. It creates amazing dimension while looking simple and classic.

With these cool days creeping up on us there is nothing better that your old big knit scarf. Pair it with some leather and lips that pop.b4dc18c64c8fe70e44e2d2e0111812cd

Try that old-school braid look your Mom always used to do…or change it up with a fishbraid! 78593271d9fec0bfe0207fd55783b059

This tee is awesome because of the clean V neck but the leather sleeves gives it some edge to the basic look.70bdda0066b9869784f2324044dfef9e

Why not dress up those summer shorts with a baggy top or crop top and your fave heels. 51062e2a7e5ecfc0bf8e7f4ba305af6c

Nothing gets more back to basics with the white tank, jeans and black heels. Easy, vintage and fab.

Short ShortS

22 Jul

Hello Glamourites!

Hope you are all having a nice start to your week and the weather is as beautiful as it is for me! The sun is shinning and the birds are singing (well in my mind they are). I am also noticing a ton of stores having great sales on already for their summer collections, so a great time to get some deals and stock up on some summer clothing! Because of the heat lately I am loving my shorts, although I don’t have many, and have put these ones on my favourite list. Hopefully I will be able to expand my shorts wardrobe with these sales around. Hope you like my picks  xx Glamour Planner

I figured I should put my all-time favourite at the top… I NEED these. Yes need. The colouring is amazing and the added studs makes it a fantastic duo.
shortsgreenThese denim shorts I like because they look a little baggier which makes them comfy to run around in or for a casual event. Also being a little high waisted and circle studs makes them unique.
shortsstudWhite shorts are the classic summer fashion. Great for a beach afternoon, BBQ or shopping downtown.
shortswhiteFor a more formal attire you can go with a tweed material which feels more classy. Gold is always a solid choice for colour as you can always match it with whatever else you are in the mood for.
shortstweedLastly another denim, good old basic short. I thought the square stud detailing on the back was very cute and can be made casual or even higher fashion with some heels and a fun top.

W&B

9 Jul

Good Morning Glamourites,

I believe that what sometimes can be most stunning and dramatic in fashion is all BLACK and WHITE. It makes an incredible contrast and also allows for a greater focus on the little details or textures of an outfit. These inspiring  fashion pictures are all things I would wear and love to own in my closet!

This outfit combines both the leather material in the skirt with a beautiful detailed lace top and ruffled sleeves, making a classic combo.

W&BlaceWOW. What more to say? This bathing suit is to die for (not literally -just to be clear) but the vintage suit style adding to the totally glam gems is a show stopper for the beach! W&BbathingsuitOf course going all white can really set off your particular hairstyle of the day or if you have fab black heels to show off. W&BallwhiteCan this get anymore glamourous, I think not! This one-of-a-kind black dress with asymmetrical lengths is a beauty within itself as well as perfectly setting off a statement belt like this one. W&BdressLastly, I just love Robert Downey Jr. W&BRobertDowneyJrIf you are liking all the white and black theme check out the White House & Black Market clothing line for more ideas & shopping! ~ http://www.whitehouseblackmarket.com/store/home.jsp?
