Baby it's cold outside!

Hello everybody!

This is my third post for the winter season. I hope you're having a great time! I wanted to introduce some outwear accessories that will be in trend for the season. Coats, scarves and boots mostly! Without further due, let's start!

Black Long Sleeves Removable Fur Collar Zip Whool Coat. Catarzi Exclusive to Asos Floppy Hat. Asos Oversized 70's Sunglasses. Mecardo Boots. I really like this glamour outwear outfit. I was inspired by some stars wanting to hide behind a big floppy hat and round shaped sunglasses. Despite what people might think, it's very useful to have a pair of sunglasses, especially if you're driving, the shiny reflection of the snow and the sun can be annoying. Leather gloves are super fancy, it's a timeless piece as well as these riding boots. The gold studs in these gloves makes a call back to the little chain on the heel boot. The hat makes the whole outfit even more glamorous and so as the fur collar.

Asos Longline Double Breasted Coat. Asos Whoole Beret. Just Trekkin' In Boot. Maison Scotch Suede Mittens.  Johnstons Lambswool Tartan Scarf. I know I'm always introducing tartan in every fashion posts, but seriously, how can't I? It's such a lovely combination of colours and it's one of my favourite patterns! So, here's my 'On The Playground' outfit. As you can see, there's two different shades of red. Primary red and burgundy. Maybe it's risky to mix two different types of red but what can I say, I'm brave enough and I think the whole outfit is pretty that way!

Let me know what you think of these super cute winter accessories! I have to say, the fur collar coat is a must have for myself! ;)

Winter Outfits with ModCloth!


ModCloth is one of my favourite online store of all time, every time I go there online, I fill my virtual basket! I always thing of a specific piece of clothe and either Asos has it or ModCloth. My heart is sold to these two! My number one source when I'm doing a Get The Look Of... is Asos but ModCloth is a personal taste I share with many celebs such as Zooey Deschanel, Taylor Swift, AnnaSophia Robb, Emma Watson... Well, you see ModCloth is such an heaven! Anyway, I did a ModCloth Fever post, I also want to open my series of winter posts with a ModCloth wink ;) 

The first look is more for occasion such as a Christmas Party with your family or colleagues, or for New-Years Eve. I see that gold on black is very in trend for the winter/christmas time. This Radiant Roses Dress is perfect for a special glamour event. Because this dress is such a master piece you need to go low profile with the rest. I chose these shiny Yes I Candescent Heel in gold, it's a perfect match with the dress. Not too eye catching but still very beautiful. To make them even more shiny, I'd wear a pair of black tights. The dress has a very high scoop neckline so I think a necklace would be too much in this area, I picked some very lovely earrings, settle but I just thought, when I saw them, it suits the pattern of the dress marvellously! These are the Stylista in the Bloom earrings. To finish this outfit you'll surely need a bag, a clutch is just perfect in a chic soirée and I did found something that suits the rest, still on the gold lancé, it's the Luxe Great to Me clutch
If you're more on the traditional side of a grand family reunion, rocking the red, green and white colour of a candy cane well, this look might be the one for you! This charming, - can a sweater be charming? - piece of clothe is shouting 'Christmas!'. Cliché but always a crush on this time of year. When it's around Christmas you can never go wrong with the jacquard pattern; it's the Sled the Word sweater! To make this unique sweater even, I'd chose a red skirt, this one is so pretty and festive with this big bow, get this Musee des Arts Decoratifs skirt! When in doubt, rock the black tights. Well, I believe black thighs match almost anything. In that case, I'd stick to them. So, maybe it's Christmas Eve and you're shopping last minute presents, it's such a cute and lively outfit to show off. If you're brave enough, rock these elf-like boots. My motto is if you're going to do this, oh you have to go all the way! So here embrace this typical Christmas outfit with these very cool red boots! Aren't they just so cool? Everything Bold Is New Boot is now in my basket! If you're too shy you can still hide in your green coat that will subtly remind us of Christmas with these red boots. Get this Once Upon A Thyme coat! Last but not least, these little Nuts for Style earrings, just, they're so cute, I can't even...!

If you're on the dorky-childy side, I always thought that suspender shorts suits these type of people. It's such a childish piece of clothe, don't you think? ModCloth sells this Nice and Nimble shorts and for an unknown reason it reminds me of Christmas time! To stay in the winter palette, I chose this very cute green blouse. I can see this big bow between the straps of the shorts, it's just so lovely and child-like. This is the Green Tea Milk top! And what would be a winter outfit without some typic Christmas pattern? The tartan pattern is at its best this year, and since this outfit is so poor on the pattern side, these Extracurricular Edge tights adds up so much to this childish outfit. The check reminds me of these typical pattern from the sixties school uniform. Lovely! Since it's such a vintage kid outfit, this cute red satchel with the Clyde ghost from PacMan suits marvellously. - Yes, I googled its name - Find this babyish Pen Palling Around bag. Does these shoes remind you of this typical sixties kid uniform I said? The straps and the oxford shape, they're so ducky, I love them, they're the All Over Amherst flat! Don't forget that this year's trend is the school uniform and I'm adopting it very well. ;) 

I hope you enjoyed reading this article, I find it always very cool to create outfits! Especially when they come from one of my favourite store! I personally have a crush on these red boots and those tartan tights! How cool are they huh? Can't wait to get myself some present from me to me! ;)

Winter Essentials

Hello everybody!

So, I don't know about you but I live on the East Coast of Canada so, it's getting pretty cold already. The weather is dropping while Christmas trees are getting all glam up already! I'm not lying, I was a the mall today and BAM the big Christmas tree, Christmas balls, Christmas crowns... Do I need to go on? Seems like it was a month ago I was dress up as an hippie to celebrate Halloween. Anyway, just so you know holidays are coming and faster than you think. ;) 

The next few posts will be Winter/Christmas related. The first thing I want to talk about is some winter essentials, to start the cold weather on the right foot here's some stuff you might like. I'll talk about presents on the next post, maybe, so let's keep moving on!

It's not a secret that winter does no gift to our skin. The cold dries out our skin, so it's very important to take good care of it. Your lips are no exception, unfortunately, if you're like most people they might crack, even bleed. To make it easy for your lips, you have to carry a very good lip balm. Some will prevent to get all sore with a moisturizing effect, some will help repair the damages so it's important to get the right one for your condition. The best is to find one that does both! I hear great things about the EOS and Burt's Bee products, so don't forget to check these out next time you're in a Target!

There's not just your lips to take good care of, hands are also prone to get extremely dry. If you naturally have dry skin, you might want to carry a very moisturizing hand cream. I personally struggle with cracked knuckle, they get so dry, it's like having sand paper for skin. Also, you face will be 'facing' the cold wind, so it will also get pretty dry. You should have a great oily lotion to put on your face, I heard it's preferable to put aside all Shea butter products for the cold months. I use Nivea Q10 lotion for my face and I cary the Lancôme hand cream in my bag, they both work perfectly! Both of them sink in very fast!

You also need to take care of your inside health. Not catching a cold is quite a win during the cold days. For that you need some good & cute items! First of all, we all know that our body warmth goes out by the very top of our head. - maybe it's a myth, I'm not sure - . Anyway, you just don't want to catch a cold because you did not put a hat on your head. If you live somewhere where the temperature isn't that low, -hello California! - well, a simple stylish turban might do the job. For myself I only have spring and autumn to rock the turban, when the winter begins, I need to wear a full head hat. Also, you might want to cover your hands, cute mitts is so easy to find. Don't forget to protect your neck by adding a big scarf. Knit scarves will always be timeless but I can see fur scarves are coming in force for the winter, I always thought that fur is something class, glamour and jet-set, so you will see me rocking some faux fur scarf for the winter season! Everything shown is from ASOS.

You're slowly level up the thermostat, you can lo longer leave the patio door open! You'll ask need extra blankets if you're a sensitive chilly girl like me! For the Fall/Winter season I love to shop Pjs. I'm on the very grama style. I love a good flannel pjs you can find some in Target &Walmart. I also love candles, and honestly who doesn't? My go-to place has been since forever Bath & Body Works. They have super great deals every time I go there, 2 3flicks candles for 22$, nice jar candles and I'm not talking about the long lasting scent that fills the room in a snap! They're also very long lasting and safe! I say B&BW is heaven! So, just imagine yourself in a super dubber cute pjs, in your bedroom that smells like this Champagne Toast candle and a very good book you're hooked on, a Tv show even... This is some lonely quality time to me!

So, this is was just a quick intro to the stuff I'll be working on for my next few posts, always including beauty care and fashion! I was just celebrating this upcoming season, maybe I'm too early but who cares? Winter as its perks! ;)

What's your Winter Essentials?
