Trenchcoat obsession| OOTD

Hey guys,

If you’ ve been reading this blog for a while now, you know that I’ve always wanted a cute trench coat/cardigan. Althoiugh, I wasn’t able to find one that looked exactly how I wanted it. Until I found one in Urban Planet, and it was onbly around $30. So naturally, I created an everyday outfit with the trench coat being the main piece. Hope you guys like the outfit! Outfit details will be posted below!

How to style comfy sweaters! Part 1

I don’t know about you, but I certainly have many many days where I wake up in the morning and all I feel is cold. It makes me not want to get out of bed or do anything! Then the thought of putting on a tight or revealing (basically uncomfortable) top to look fashionable makes me feel sick. All i want to do is not wear a bra, be warm and comfortable but still look presentable. On these days my huge comfy and fuzzy sweaters come in handy! I’ve had an obsession with sweaters lately and now they won’t fit in my closet anymore, whoops! Anyways here are a few different ways to style comfy sweaters without looking like you completely gave up on life ( even though you may feel that way inside) ;).

This post is going to made up of several different ootd looks put together but I will also give tips on ideas how to make theses outfits not so boring. You’ll see that they are all very simple, warm, and most importantly comfortable! If you want to see pictures of all my comfy sweaters, keep a look out for my Sweater Collection post coming up very soon!

aeo-sweater

Sweater: AEO | Leggings: Hyba | Shoes: Ugg

This is one of the simplest outfits but I love it so much! I love pairing leggings with sweaters because they are tight and form fitting which is completely opposite from sweaters. The ugg boots especially tied the whole look together because they are stylish but not very visible at the same time and they do not drag the eye to them, instead the sweater is the statement piece with nothing distracting the eye from it.

cozy-sweater

Sweater: H&M | Jeans: Urban Behavior | Shoes: Timberland

Here I went for a monochrome look. I paired my biggest black and white sweater with ripped jeans to add some more interest to the outfit. I really feel like the rips at the knee and some edge to the otherwise simple outfit. I finished the look off with matching white and grey socks peaking above my Timberlands. I chose the Timberlands instead one of my black pairs of shoes because I wanted to break up the monochrome a little bit and I find that they also add to the edginess of the outfit.

sorels

Sweater: Shrinking Violet | Leggings: Hyba | Shoes: Sorels

This outfit is one that I wear when I truly cannot get out of bed. I like this sweater because it is plain and can be paired with anything but it isn’t just a plain canvas, instead it has these cut-out patterns which automatically give the sweater some interest. I paired it with leggings again and wore my Sorels because they match the color scheme of the outfit perfectly, I especially love how the white fur ties in with the white sweater! Also, I’m not sure if you can tell in the picture but the leggings are more of a heather grey so there are specks of white that once again match the sweater.

styling-a-sweater

Sweater: Shrinking Violet| Jeans: Costa Blanca | Socks: Roots | Scarf: Forever 21 | Shoes: Sorels

Once again, I am wearing the white sweater as above but this time I paired it with jeans. I also accessorized with a burgundy scarf and roots socks peaking from the sorels to add some color to the outfit. I also love wearing my Talula burgundy mits for an even cozier and cute look!

As you guys can see, I love making simple outfits with little touches that add some extra interest or a pop of color to them! Tag me in your pictures if you want me to see some of your cozy sweater outfits!

I didn’t plan on making this a two-part series but it would be too long for only one post so look out for part two with more looks coming up next week!

WIW: Skiing

Hey guys! I just got back from Quebec where I had a great skiing  vacation (post on that coming up)! I realize that the skiing season is over but I wanted to share what I wore while skiing! Also, sorry for the horrible quality, I was always rushed and had to take the pictures with my phone :/

Unfortunately I’m writing this post too late so I’m not going to go in detail about what you need to stay warm while skiing. But to sum it up, you need:

  • dry fit leggings
  • dry fit tops ( I prefer long sleeves)
  • a fleece sweater
  • ski socks

The four things above are the bare minimum you need, for skiing you need many other items (snow pants, mits, balaclavas) but I will cover that in the beginning of next winter!

Winter Hacks (to make life %100 easier)

Today I have a bit of a different post than usual, its going to be a winter hacks post! I know I’ve done hacks before but these are house and daily chores type of hacks instead of my usual makeup and beauty hacks! The winter makes all our lives a lot harder, the cold weather simply makes our bodies want to shut-down and not move. It’s a natural thing, we want to stay still and preserve our heat, thats why getting up from our couches is a lot harder in the winter time than in the summer! With that being said, I’ve gathered a few hacks that I found on the internet that will make your life much more simple, hope you enjoy!

Shoveling Snow: When I shovel, I always feel as if my shovel is only picking up half as much snow as the shovel can hold because there is always snow stuck to the shovel! To make all the snow fall off your shovel to make room for more snow to get picked up, spray on cooking spray! When I came across this tip, I couldn’t believe it! The cooking spray will make the snow slip off the shovel and therefore make you strain your back a lot less!

 

 

Keeping your hardwood dry: I hate when people come into my house with wet boots and get it all over my hardwood floor! Even if there is a house mat, they usually won’t soak up all the water and the water will end up running off the house mat onto the floor. There si a simple DIY to solve this problem! Find a crate or nice woiuld box and then place your house mat inside it and then add rocks. (refer to picture below). This will keep the water inside the “house mat” and looks super chic for any house too!

Car Problems: Whenever I go somewhere with a car in the wintertime, I’m always late! This is because I always forget to account for the ice on the car windshields! It is such a pain in the a#s to spend 20 minutes trying to scrape off frozen ice. Instead of spending time with your ice-scraper, first spray on a solution 2/3 parts vinegar and 1/3 parts water. The ice should melt right off!

Also you can cover your windshield wipers with socks (preferably long) so snow won’t stick to them.

Lock Trouble: I have news for you! There is finally a handy thing you can use the hand sanitizer in your bag that you never use but always have for something! Rub the hand sanitizer onto your keys before you put it into the lock, the alcohol in it will dry out some of the snow.

Let me know what you think bout these types of posts and if they will help you out!

OOTD-Winter 2016

Hey guys! I hope you are having a great day! For me, this has been the best winter by far. It’s been pretty warm which makes me extremely happy because I cannot stand the cold! Today I have an ootd that I love to wear during the Fall and on the warm Winter days. I love wearing cargo pants during the winter because they are loose fitting so you can layer underneath and be warm even if it just looks like a loose and breezy pair of pants. I paired them with a cropped grey sweater and my leather jacket. The outfit details are below!

Winter ways to burn fat !

The following is a list of easy things you can do with your family or friends. So that you don’t feel guilty after indulging some hot cocoa with marshmallows and other fattening desserts (apple pie is one of my favorites:)!

Shoveling Snow: The chore we all hate, one of the worst things about snow but it will give you a hell of a good workout! Feel free to skip your workout if you shovel for longer than 15 min. As it is a great cardio workout but even more so, it will work every single muscle in your upper body!

Snowball fights: Running around in the snow, ducking, jumping and throwing snowballs gives you crazy calorie burn. Approximately 350 calories per hour!

Snowman building: Believe it or not this actually a great exercise! All that bending, rolling snowballs, and lifting can help you burn an extra 300 calories per hour!

Sledding: When going down a hill on your sled, you use many muscle groups such as your core to keep your balance so that you don’t fall (right away at least). Now the part that makes sledding a bit less fun; going back up the hill! Yes, that is the part we all dread when sledding, we spend 10 sec getting down the hill but five minutes getting up the hill. Unfair. But at least we can look on the bright side, going up a hill while holding and sled in the cold = lots of calorie burning! Precisely, around 240 per 30 min!

Skating: Get your skates and get your cardio on! Don’t have skates? Many ice rinks rent out skates for cheap so that everyone can skate when they like! Skating is great cardio but is also great for building glute muscles because you are constantly in a bit of a squat. It even works your core because it has to keep you balanced, so if you are especially clumsy (like me) you will burn even more calories! Always think about the bright side of things!

I hope you enjoy these ideas and remember, always think about the bright side! Even if its dark outside 😉 Also, did anyone else notice that all these activities start with the letter S?
