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!
