Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are my childhood hero’s. I grew up watching them on T.V. every single day when I visited my Nana & Papa during the summer break. If you follow me on Pinterest, then you know I have been pinning the hell out of their photos! There style is so simple, yet different. I am obsessed with it! Rarely are there outfits something other then neutral coloured, but they somehow make everyone stand out, and set the newest trend!
Their street style is unbelievably chic, yet wearable. With 2 fashion houses they own, The Row and Elizabeth & James, they are the epitome of chic.
With the pressure of designing complete lines for both companies, along with other designing projects for different brands, they are true business women and have become the person I aspire to be as I grow older.
WHO IS YOUR INSPIRATION?
Spring is so close I can ALMOST feel it. Here in Northern Canada it’s still quite cold… but I am just so excited for spring I’ve been thinking about all the pieces I want to wear!
Sunglasses are such a good staple to have on you at all times. They are great to accessorize an outfit with, either covering you eyes, on top of you head or tucked into the collar of your shirt they always make a statement. So, I decided to round up my favourites available on the ASOS website and share them with you.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE STYLE?
It’s a new week, with some new inspirations! Anniken Jørgensen a.k.a Annijor
is it this week! (and secretly every other week as well… shhhhh). There is just something about her style that catches my eye every damn time! She knows how to wear baggy jeans, she knows how to style an oversized faux fur coat, she knows how to wear the perfect amount of jewelry, and on top of that after reading her blog, shes an amazing writer and is honestly goals. Plain and simple.
If you haven’t checked out Anniken’s blog or her insta… do it! You will not regret it I promise! At times, her blog is like her diary it feels.
She isn’t scared to write her feelings, and is so damn relatable all the time and is just real. She doesn’t pretend to have a perfect life, she shows you how life is and that’s so important! Peoples lives aren’t like how you see them through a photo on instagram, and she shows you that when she needs to. In the end, just please go read her blog! haha.
WHO INSPIRES YOU?
It’s Valentines Day, and once again I am alone. Not that I’m complaining, I like my me time. Although I feel like leading up to today there has been so many different pressures posted out there. “What are you getting ______”, “Are you spending Valentines Day with ____”, “We are alone so lets all spend the day doing something together”, ” I need to top all of there friends significant others gifts this year”. REALLY??? It’s a day dedicated to showing someone you love them… shouldn’t that be everyday you spend with them?
And know there is even pressure if you don’t have someone to spend it with. Galentines Day… Can’t I just be happy that I’m not with someone at the moment?
So, instead of falling into the pressures that society has tried springing on me, even though I’m single I still have to spend it with friends apparently, I am simply giving myself some extra lovin. haha.
The first thing I do to begin pampering myself is throw my hair up off my face and take off my 10 hour old make-up. Nothing feels better then washing the dirt and grim of the day off your face.
Who says you have to go out for a fancy ass meal? Order take-out and eat it on the couch in your oversized t-shirt! Put on your favourite movie or TV show and relax!
Ahh yes, my favourite part! Time for the ultimate pamper session. haha. I like to pour a bath with some essential oils or a bath bomb from LUSH! Light some candles, and grab a glass of wine (if legal) and just relax. Let all the tension leave your body. I also like putting a face mask on and follow it with a night-time face moisturizer.
Then I like to put some warm PJ’s on and cuddle into bed with a favourite movie or binge watch my favourite TV show!
WHAT’S YOUR VALENTINES DAY PLANS???
New York Fashion Week is upon us, meaning all the new trends are coming out! One trend I was particularly excited to see was trench coats. I know they aren’t new, but the variations coming out are stunning! From different fabrics and patterns, to bright colours and pastels, there is a trench coat for everyones taste. Not to mention they are the perfect transition coat to wear this winter/spring. I love how you can pair them with jeans and a t-shirt, or you can layer the trench coat over a dress for a night out. I found some amazing ones on ASOS.
