Afternoon fellow bloggers!

I’ve never been a hoodie kind of girl, but I recently fell in love with the comfy feeling of a simple black hoodie from Old Navy! Not only does it look nice, but it’s super comfy, which is essential for this fall weather!

I know this picture above may seem like a boring photo to be inspired by, but it still caught my eye. I’ve always loved how people wear hoodies and denim together. Having this photo reminded me to one day try it out myself!

I find it really funny now that you can buy jackets with the parts of a hoodie attached to it, but it’s not actually two separate pieces, but rather one whole piece. I like it, but it takes away the fun of putting the layers together yourself.

 

This simple black hoodie is from Old Navy for about $11.00. It’s actually very thin and light, so I can wear plenty of layers under it and it actually fits my figure nicely so it doesn’t make me look like I just rolled out of bed.

 

Pairing my new black hoodie with my denim-leather jacket from Forever 21 instantly became a combo that I am now thoroughly in love with!

  • Brown jacket- Urban Planet ($15.00)

Fall is all about layers! This is one of my new favourite fall outfits because of the colors and the layering! Have a look at each layer (one full outfit became wearable to look different by simply removing and adding a layer or two!):

 

The most basic outfit: a top and bottom. Working with some autumn colours, I decided to be bold and try a tone-on-tone outfit!

 

Sometime’s a scarf is really the best way to make an outfit stand out as an accent piece! Not only does it match, it’s extra warmth!

 

OR we can switch the scarf for a cropped lightweight jacket that literally feels like nothing! It adds a more neutral tone to the outfit.

And the final outfit because chill weather means we need to stay warm! Threw on my jacket and I’m out the door!

I always say, “never buy something if you can’t match it with AT LEAST 3-4 outfits.

Be smart with how you shop.

Sure its nice when you find that amazing top that you’ve already visualized the PERFECT outfit with because it has the right fit, the right colour, ect … however, you probably would only wear it with that ONE specific outfit.

I think this is a BIG NO-NO. sure that’s really awesome, but is it worth it?
Wouldn’t you rather have something with more versatility?

Okay, sure the splurge of that one super-duper AMAZING totally feel-good outfit isn’t bad to do rarely (I mean, don’t we all need those from time-to-time?), but NOT regularly. Not unless you’ve got the money to spend and not a damn to give. However, if you’ve got a budget, and can be a sensible person, realistically, this is the way to go. (I’ve met people who have the same outfits in different colours and bags and shoes to match each of them which just makes my jaw drop thinking of the amount they’ve spent on these name-brand clothes!)

I speak very highly about this because I’ve made the mistakes and I’ve definitely changed my ways of shopping. It still happens to me once in a while when I buy something on the spot, feel guilty later, and end up returning it to get my money back (always know your return policy!).

Who says you can’t stay trendy even while shopping sensibly on a budget?

What is it like for you financially when shopping? Any tips you wanna share?

Rings. Rings. Rings. This is my personal favored accessory. People who hang with me always know I will have rings bearing my very long fingers! Every girl should have some diamonds, and if they come in the form of really funky rings, then I’ll ALL for~

PS. No, I did NOT mean wedding rings!

I figured I would show you guys some of my rings, as an excuse to also use my soft box kit. Not all of them,  but my top set that I wear.

This is what I call my “evolution” set. I got the one on the right (Store-Aldo) from my little brother (he buys me LOTS of rings! And has great taste too.) I then got the bigger one on the left (Store- Ardene) from my trio a few months ago~

A few years ago my cousin was giving me a BUNCH of stuff she didn’t want (clothes, bags, accessories) and this was one of them! Not only is it colored a beautiful emerald green, but it also … SPINS! I”m not kidding, it really does! Pretty cool right? The spinning feature can distract me sometimes … or a lot …

This ring was also a gift from my trio that I really enjoy wearing, which is also from Ardene. I really took a liking to big rings because it can make such a statement without trying.

Both rings are from Aldo’s Accessories that I got a few years ago. I’ve worn these so many time’s that the colour is actually starting to fade. The shapes of these are what caught my eye. They both have an almost floral-like print on them, giving them a subtle touch of femininity~

This is this year’s ring from my little brother, HOORAY! He really knows how to pick them, especially when I like unique looking rings. This one blew me away, not just because it fit me really well, but because of how it looks like wings curling together~

This is just a close-up of one of the rings. I really like the style because it’s almost like a painting with it being long and rectangular.

This is what I feel is my “Victorian-styled” ring. It is very big, but really comfy. I bought it because I felt the black center piece could go with a lot of my outfits because it’s such a neutral colour. I really like the intricate designs too!

I don’t know why, but every time I look at this ring I think of a Ferris wheel for some odd reason … but yeah. This actually curves outwards at both ends, so it’s almost barely on my finger.

I’M OBSESSED WITH THIS RING! The Forever21 ring for only $1.50! Ch’yeah! Me and my friend Fazal call it “the samurai sword”! Slash! I love these long styled rings, it’s a lot of fun to wear, even though it sometime’s pokes me … in the face.

These are all 3 separate bands, but it’s really nice to wear them stacked up. My mom gave these to me, and these were my first “silver rings”, so I treasure them a LOT! I felt so cool wearing these when I was going out, it got me into occasionally buying rings afterwards~

Despite the fact that I suck at cleaning my jewelry, I love wearing them regardless. What’s your go-to must-have accessory? =)
