Summer Inspo

30 Jun

Hello Glamourites!

Yes I know it has been awhile; it seems June got away on me! Things were crazy with it being my sister’s high school graduation which meant lots of parties and family from out of town. Now that things have died down and summer is well upon us, I hope to get back to making regular posts 🙂 For today, here are some pictures and ideas for summer/fashion/food and others that caught my eye. Hope you are all having an amazing start to your week! xx Glamour Planner

Make an area where you can relax and take time for yourself or catch a little cat nap!

Make sure you spent as much time as possible outside when the sun is shinning, it’s not summer forever!

Lastly, buy yourself a neon suit! You only live once, so you might as well shine brightly 🙂

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

Patio Relaxing

23 Jun

Good afternoon Glamourites!

Sometimes all you need after a long week or stressful day is a relaxing afternoon on the back deck. Pour yourself a drink, take a seat with a friend or the family, turn some tunes on and kick back for a few hours. I find with all the hussle and bussle of the day sometimes the perfect cure is to enjoy some down time just sitting. I was looking at some patio decor and layouts (plus some of these houses are amazing!) and this might give you some inspiration to spruce up your deck or spend more time outside!

The simplicity of this patio is very cleansing. You might find yourself feeling like you are somewhere in Europe with the clean white railing and the perfectly placed flower pots.

To get nice and cozy for perfect lounging,  the solution is LOTS of pillows! This bench just makes me want to lay right down with a good book. Also the fun pop of pink colour adds a nice element of excitement and warmth.Don’t forget an easy string of lights for after sunset!

If you are able to have a fireplace outside, do it! There is nothing better than spending summer evenings outside enjoying the sound of crackling fire or roasting marshmallows for s’mores!  The extra warmth for those cooler evenings is also a bonus. This setup also has the neutral colour pallet which is nice because it can be easily redecorated for other occasions or events. Don’t forget to add some flowers.

This last little picture of inspiration isn’t exact a patio or deck but I loved the idea of buying inexpensive candles and lining them up the length of the dock. This is especially effective for an evening party or casual dock drinks for two.
