3 Sleeps to Osheaga: My Favourite Festival Looks From the Past

Ok everyone I am getting incredibly excited for this weekend, as I will be heading off to Montreal in only a minuscule amount of time. I have my schedule picked out but now comes the most important part, the outfits and the necessities. Now having never been to a music festival before, I will be learning alongside all of you, but I’ve done my research. So, to kick off this week I am sharing with you my all-time (of recent history) favourite music festival looks from the unattainable celebrity world, and in my next post I will show you how I drew inspiration from them! Hope this helps all you who are struggling as much as I am…

Of course, the reigning queen of anything remotely boho-chic or Coachella inspired, Vanessa Hudgens. Her festival (and sometimes even bohemian street style) are the stuff that best-dressed lists are made of. Here she is looking comfy and cute in an airy two-piece set. GOALS.

Chiara Ferragni, because if you read blogs, you know her. Not only does she routinely kill Coachella fashion with her own trends but her fashion week looks are to die for. This girl is not afraid of anything and it pays off. Plus those double buns?

You can’t mention Coachella of recent years without a mention of the Jenners. So I decided to put Kendall on the list for this look a while back. Understated and minimalistic, but stunning.

If you know me you know I am a huge fan of Selena’s style/stylist. I think she always manages to look so comfortable and messy chic. This is exactly the same concept, only unattainable for anyone who is not a celebrity to be this free of grass stains by the end of the day. Must be nice…

Finally Gigi, specifically this outfit because I based one of my own looks off of it. I was inspired by the chain belt on simple black. Hopefully the combination of heavy metal on such a dark fabric doesn’t lead me to heatstroke, but again, thats why I’m testing these out for you! All in the name of fashion, am I right?

Thanks for reading! See you all soon,

The Tassel Was Worth the Hassle

Ok you know you love an outfit when you’ve already worn it twice in a week. OOPS.

This Forever 21 dress is one of the most versatile pieces I own, and I should’ve picked it up in other colours when I had the chance. The hunter green colour is versatile without being boring, the fabric is soft and very light, and the midi fit is professional, yet can be dressed up for going out. This silhouette appeals to me greatly as I feel it lengthens your body when worn with heels (ideally ones nuder and taller than these).

As you can see I am wearing these lace up heels as often as possible to break them in before I head off to school, and happened to have a similarly grey toned blazer ($5 Forever 21 steal!!) to pair them with.

The real headliner of this outfit as far as I am concerned is the unique tassel necklace, on which I have already gotten a few compliments. I picked it up during Express’ sale not too long ago and can vouch to say it looks way more expensive than it was.

Hope you all had a good weekend! 🙂

Another Dress I Wear Way Too Often

As I continue my work-filled summer I am slowly losing my motivation to actually have to put together more than one item of clothing. This means I have started to gravitate to the same easy, pull-on and go wardrobe pieces that I know will look good. 13626357_10209638326825526_6402832245224380039_n

I picked up this purple dress this spring (featured in one of my earlier posts) and have been wearing it nonstop since. The cut is super flattering and office appropriate and I find the colour upgrades it from a boring neutral. I did manage to up the style factor a bit with my All Saints birthday purse, which I am of course still obsessed with (and now have it stocked to the brim with unnecessary things). As well as these cute new trendy booties I picked up from Marshalls which were a steal at $40.

 Hope you all enjoy this week, it is supposed to be extra hot here!

Down By The Beach

Finally had beautiful weather for my day off yesterday and decided to go on an impromptu beach day with my mother. 13590273_10209616344595984_4437563842379320548_n

The cute scenery and hot sun led to some cute pictures (well worth the sunburn I returned with!) so I thought I’d share my super simple summer uniform as of late.

13620987_10209616344075971_6539308574276258163_n

I’ve always had a thing for the preppy look of button down shirts, but recently found myself loving the casual-grungy way they can be paired with almost anything. Surprisingly, I have quite a few button downs in my closet but no plain white ones (not since my high school uniform days anyways…) and picked up this Zara Basic Shirt in their sale recently, which is still available. Definitely less structured and more floaty, if thats what you’re looking for.

13600296_10209616344115972_6545147633665064471_n

Paired it with my Zara white-tipped shades, One Teaspoon Bandit Shorts, and a new belt from ASOS, as well as my go-to sandals that always attract compliments (a steal many years ago from Wal-Mart, if you believe it). It was the perfect simple base to pair with such a colourful bikini such as the royal blue Kiini one I was wearing.

Hope you all get to enjoy some good weather this weekend! Ill be working inside… 😦
