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.

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!

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!

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.

Focus In

2 Sep

Hello Glamourites!

Well the time has officially come….school starts again tomorrow! Which is why I have been very bad with any new posts the last little while, as I have been getting organized and packed. I’m still very unsure whether to be excited or dreading going back, I am excited for new school supplies, is that sad? Anyways back on topic, as my current theme is to be focused in on school and my studies I thought these design inspiration pics were well done as they focused in on a specific object or place of the room. Very helpful if you are waiting to showcase a art piece or part of architecture.

Hope the start to your September hasn’t been too difficult xx Glamour Planner

This wall feature is completely eye-catching and it adds texture to the space with minimal other materials. ddc91315a13e407954e5325bea09f60b

Wanting to highlight the bed but without a headboard or fancy bed frame this indented wall art does the trick. e2d9238154619a241fd5ffb0f0f5e370Using the grand chandelier creates that focus to the centre of the room drawing it away from the wall detailing.
