Your Inner Snowman

29 Jan

Good Afternoon Glamourites!

Today I’m in a wintery mood as the snowflakes are all I can see when I look out my window! Also I seem to be obsessed lately with everything white, according to my pinterest board. I find during these long winter months I want to create my own light and by wearing a pop of colour, or in this case white, your day immediately feels not so gloomy. I know some may say that wearing white anytime after Labour day is basically a crime but I say go for it! Life is too short to not wear what makes you feel your best. I hope everyone is keeping warm and that you will all embrace your inner snowman this week!

The use of mixing textures with this outfit is on point; adore the knit and jacket blazer combo! snowman

The perfect outfit to be comfy but still feel acceptable to go outside ~ try mixing shades of white for top and bottoms. snowman2

Here’s my beauty inspiration for white: line your eyes with a white liner or shadow to make them pop!

Add one item that’s not white to make the rest of your outfit really stand out ~black and white, forever a classic.

I’m obsessed with this nail colour, it looks like snowflakes on your hand!

Try mixing in white with a print or pattern for more geometric appeal.

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!

Dreaming in White

5 Apr

Hi Glamourites,

Recently as the weather has started to improve (here in Ontario that has meant going into the positives instead of negatives), all I have been able to think of is when I can start pulling out my spring wardrobe! Here are some pieces that I hope to purchase and take inspiration from. Hope everyone is enjoying some spring weather xx Glamour Planner

Has Spring Sprung Yet?

11 Mar

Hello Glamourites,

Clearly I have been MIA the past month…probably wallowing in my winter depression! In my opinion, it stayed WAY over its welcome; it’s March already mr. weather. On that note, I have obviously been looking  into spring trends and outfit inspirations to keep me calm. Check out the pictures below for the Spring 2014 trend insights taken from the Paris runway during Fashion Week. Hope everyone is having a great week xx Glamour Planner

The wide-leg pant is back! They are easy to wear and ultra-chic; billowy wide-leg trousers are making a come back on  the spring runways and streets.Springwideleg

All heights can wear these pants, not just the 6 foot models. If you are shorter look for slimmer on the flare and appropriate high waisted length. Springwideleg2

Contrast collar button downs are the new essential. Inspired by men’s dress shirt bringing in contrasting colours, textures or patterns, it’s a simple way to spice up your work outfit.  Springbuttondown

How adorable are the Tea-length skirts, somewhere between the length of maxi and midi (just below the knee). This length works perfect for any spring afternoon! 
SpringTeaSkirt

The ladylike hemline can be as modern as the midi depending what you pair it with, could be a cropped top which will accentuate your height!

SpringTeaSkirt2

The last inspiration for today is the introduction of the tuxedo trouser with a mix of the athletic pant making this sporty and comfy but still looking smart and sophisticated. Also try a streamlined silhouette in a unexpected white or reverse tuxedo.

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.

That Vintage LOOK

14 Aug

Good Evening Glamourites,

I find sometimes when you are searching for outfit inspiration or struggling with what to wear, it’s always smart to look back on history. As it sometimes can be with lots of situations, going vintage is never a bad decision; always classic, perfect for any occasion and it makes a statement. Here are some pictures I love the look of, making me want to go back into time and experience that era in person! Throw a little “old school” vibe into your next outfit xx Glamour Planner

HEART these shades. Have some fun with your sunglass choice this summer!

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.

This precious outfit is the perfect causal summer evening hangout for the city or cottage. Simple high waisted denim shorts with a mesh lace top and throw a few bangles on the arm.

The other awesome thing about summer is you can rock as much bright colour possible and it doesn’t matter because it’s SUMMER! Just like these popping tangerine nails make everything much more fun.

For the days on the beach or the sun-lite summer dinner parties a long maxi dress is always the perfect call. This one in particular has the element of surprise with the bear back and the playfulness of the stripes. Definitely want.

What is an outfit without some bling….these turquoise rings are beautifully simple and make a statement all being staked on one hand.
