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!

Fresh + Clean

26 Jan

Hello Glamourites!

I hope everyone is having an enjoyable weekend and taking some down time to relax and recharge. My weekend has been fairly quiet but also with a little fun of course. It has been freezing here which doesn’t make it very enjoyable to leave the apartment. With it being January we are always reminded about new beginnings and starting fresh…I have taken that same outlook and applied it to design and possible room interiors. If we have a clean environment, it will rub off on us and encourage us to be the same way. Hope you get some inspiration from these pictures xx Glamour Planner

The contrast between bold and simple in this living space is ideal, the straight lines from the chair frames, circle table and window rectangles. Then the juxtaposition using the black and white to make a dramatic but while still clean atmosphere.

This bedroom makes me feel I am taken back a few centuries. The detailing in the moulding and the bed posts are beautifully rich and gives this a pristine vintage look. Fresh&Clean3

For a smaller{ish} living room space this is made very grand, thanks mainly to the high ceiling which also allows too for the dramatic  chandelier. In this case, where the room is smaller and gets an abundant amount of natural light, having only black & white is perfect. Fresh&Clean2

On a smaller scale, an office desk can feel much more organized and clean if it has a neutral colour pallet. Also consistency for supplies and accessories helps with the visual aesthetic of the space.     Fresh&Clean4

The bathroom is a very important room as it is the first place you go after waking up. You want that room to make you feel fresh and therefore come across that way in the design. Here the simple lines and warm tones from the wood create a welcoming and awakening area.

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

Fall Fierce

29 Sep

Hi Glamourites,

I suppose that is now the end of September and soon to be October I must accept the fact that fall is here to stay, however much I may miss the glorious days of summer…. To get into fall wardrobe apparel we make a statement with it and pull out some fierce outfits. I am now of course just itching to go shopping to get excited about the chilly days ahead. Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and enjoy some of my fashion inspiration pics xx Glamour Planner

I am totally in love with this scarf, looks beyond soft and perfect for keeping warm when the cool breeze comes.

This earring and necklace set just scream fierce to me, awesome for dressing up jeans or setting off a dress neckline. FallFierceJews

Legging I find are perfect for being able to keep your outfit exciting and unique and still keeping warm. FallFierceLeggings

This combo: tee, gold belt, plum skirt + leather = fierce. FallFierce

I will be investing in many vests this fall, a great way to add personality and another dimension to your outfit. FallFierceDenim
