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!

Winter Warm

23 Jan

Hi Glamourites,

Well here in Toronto the temperatures have dropped in the extreme negatives making it very unpleasant whenever you must go outside. This makes it hard when putting an outfit together as I have discovered it can be tricky to look fashionable but still staying warm! Here are some pictures I have put together of outfits that look stylish but won’t let you freeze in the cold weather. Of course most of these you will still need a heavy jacket…but you get the idea.  xx Glamour Planner

I love this because sweater dresses are extremely comfortable {and reasonable} while being good source of heat but by spicing it up with a statement belt you turn this into chic. Warm|black

Who says you can’t wear white in the winter? It can definitely be pulled off, the oversized long sweater works here because the colour dresses it up while still being comfy and warm. Warm|white

 

Possibly my only favourite thing of cold weather…SCARVES. There are a million and one options with different patterns, shapes and colours for everyone’s personal style. Warm|scarf

 

This is an adorable look for a date perhaps, skirt is keeping it girly while the baggy sweater is staying casual and high socks {again} for not freezing. Warm|skirt

 

Fancy lunch date, no problem. Short sweater dress with some high heel boots and statement necklace, done. Warm|dress

Good Evening Glamourites!

Here are some of my favourite pins from this week and also some awesome style inspirations that I want to dive into this summer! I find that in the summer months it’s a time where you can explore new fashion trends and add that extra pop and it doesn’t seem out of the ordinary. The next time you’re out shopping go a little out of your comfort zone and you might like it and surprise yourself. Thanks for taking a look xx

~HOT

What could be more summer appropriate makeup than some hot pink lips! These can work both day and night as well as with casual or formal attire. You can find this colour at your local Sephora store: http://www.sephora.com/rouge-cream-lipstick-P249814?skuId=1198944 On sale right now too for only $5!

~DENIM

I would consider  jean shorts the “little black dress” of summer…you can not have enough! These  ones in particular have a vintage feel with the high waisted fit as well as washed colouring. There are similar shorts you can find at Levi’s here: http://us.levi.com/product/index.jsp?productId=19660826&&cp=3146849.3146909.4011526.19564916 ONLY $48

~WHITE

Speaking of dresses…this white dress is the perfect mix of short and long, sparkle but conservative with the long sleeves and daring scooped back. I would wear this to a fun BBQ with the girls or an outdoor luncheon with the family. There are some great options at Topshop for your own style, possibly this one: http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=1&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=33057&storeId=12556&productId=10402652&langId=-1&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=208523&parent_categoryId=203984&pageSize=2000&refinements=Colour{1}~[white]&noOfRefinements=1

In a rush? Want to look fashionable? Don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard? Here’s your solution – the simple T-shirt but with a unique spin: cut out sides, uneven neck line, ripped sleeves or asymmetrical lengths.
