Twist it up

12 Sep

Hello Glamourites,

It’s the end of summer and everyone is slowly getting back to reality with normal school/work routines. I know for me this can sometimes mean I’m feeling a bit rushed or even a tad lazy as I try to get used to the fall routine again. This is why braids are the best hairstyle. There are countless different looks and styles that you can create that won’t take too much time out of your morning. I have only experimented with a few, but there are so many pictures out there that I still want to try. Here are a few that I find straightforward to do, but it will still give you a fun and put together look!

French Braid Hybrid    ~ Start by french braiding your hair, then switch to a normal braid for two turns, then French braid again. Alternate between the two braids until you reach the end of your hair. Thanks Byrdie for the pic!

Connect The Braids   ~ This is good for when you wake up and don’t have that extra time to shower and get your hair clean and silky.  Braid a piece from each side of your head, stop where they meet in the back, and tie them together.

SideBraid

Side Braid    ~ Start to french braid from the bang section down, keeping it as close to your face as possible. Continue to add small sections to your braid until you reach your neck, then add the rest of your hair into the three sections evenly. Most important is the last step which is to loosen the braid! Thanks Treasures & Travel!

BraidCrown

Braid Crown    ~ My FAVOURITE. You can choose how much hair you want left hanging or put it all up. You can do any size of braid and it is such a statement look.

Put it up

6 Mar

Hello Glamourites,

It’s friday! That means you have no reason to not be happy today, okay unless you work weekends, but I still hope you all have some fun things planned. During the winter season I find I get really bored with my hair and it’s gets hard to style because as soon as I get outside it’s wrecked from the snow or my toque. I’ve tried new ways of putting my hair up in a ponytail or braid and adding my own twist on the look. Here are some inspiration pictures I’ve used and some new ones I will be attempting to try. Let me know what your “go to” hair do is!

Add some drama to the ordinary pony by teasing the hair like crazy!throwitup

This is a half fishtail braid which is quick to do and leaves some hair hanging if you don’t want it all up.

The classic ponytail with a statement accessory; I still need to find something like this!

Start with a side braid bringing it to the back and into a loose bun for a casual errand day.

Don’t think you have to pull out the straightener and blow dryer to prep for your early meeting; put your hair in a low bun that still looks professional.

Hello Glamourites!

I hope you all had a fabulous week and enjoying every minute of adventures and experiences you’re having. I have learned from every summer before this that the months fly by and it still shocks me every time. Summer can pass in a second if you blink. Here are a few inspirational ideas and quotes that spoke to me today. Enjoy and remember, attitude is everything, if you have a positive outlook people around you will too!  xx Glamour Planner

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.

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

New Year, New Glam

20 Jan

Hello Glamourites!

Happy New Year to everyone and I hope you all had a safe and relaxing holiday! Now that I am back in the big city and school I have time to get in the routine of updating posts on a regular basis {or let’s hope that will be the case}. I have put together pictures and inspiration of styles and tips I would like to focus on more this year. Let me know what your resolutions are for 2014!      xx Glamour Planner

No matter what you do be confident in yourself! Glitter sparkles brightly for everyone to see, show people your sparkle.newyearsparkle

This year I want to wear those “little black” dresses I have always said I will find an occasion for. newyearblackdress

Appreciate nature more, take walks on the trails or picnic on a hillside. newyearnature

Make time to right letters. Receiving a handwritten letter could be one of the most beautiful and thoughtful pieces of art and it now seems to be fading from this generation. newyearletters

Do something that scares me! {just a little}newyearadventure

Take time to enjoy your afternoon tea or coffee and add some silence in your day. newyeartea
