Chambray & Houndstooth

May 20, 2016

The last few weeks in Ontario have been confusing to say the least. It may be May... sorry for that... but it's been freaking cold! Slowly but surely we're seeing little bits of summers beautiful head peaking through but until than I'm going to keep rocking tights and booties if I have to.My sense of style really isn't everyones cup of tea. I don't own a lot of clothing or accessories but I always try and create something that will make me feel good. At the end of the day, that's all that matters right? Nice sneaky shot Joe! ;)Couldn't open that latch for the life of me! This whole outfit was just thrown together with items I've had in my closet for years. Chambray Shirt: Forever 21 | Houndstooth Skirt: Mango (years ago) - similar | Crossbody Purse: Coach (years ago) - similar | Tights: Dollarstore (because why not) | Booties: Call It Spring (years ago) - similar | Earrings: Bittersweet - similar I dig it...

OOTD: Garden Party!

July 24, 2013

Last weekend my family went to my cousins after wedding garden party. He got married and had a nice wedding in Edmonton and than came back to Ontario a week later for another celebration.I hoped the whole time while traveling to it that it was okay to wear white, both my mom and I did. We weren't sure how casual or fancy it may be but we both played it pretty safe.Jacket -  Hautelook (2011) - No Tag?Dress -  American Eagle (2012)  Sandals - Target (2010)Bag -  D'lish?

Wantable: Jewellery Box May 2013!

May 29, 2013

The official launch of Wantable in Canada has begun. May was the first month in which Canadians could purchase the monthly subscription of a Beauty or Jewellery box. A few months back Wantable opened up a sign up page for a couple hundred Canadians to join and get their first box free of charge. The cost of the box as a subscription is $36 and individually $40. I was charged $56 due to shipping and taxes and was reimbursed $36. Though this box was not technically free, it was cheaper than the full subscription itself. I can not see myself subscribing again right away but I will keep the option open for sure. Like the previous month, I chose the Jewellery box again. I destroyed the packaging and wasn't able to take a nice photo but I show the un-boxing in the video shown below. The packaging of the items was a...

OOTD: Casual Meeting

April 29, 2013

Last week, Joe and I went to a meeting with some clients we've had for years. It was a little chilly and I'm not prepared to whip out my legs this early in the year so I wore some pantyhose. I've had many of these items for years but I will try and find pieces similar if the exact ones are no longer available. I used Joe's phone for these photos so the quality is not the same as usual, sorry!Jacket: Dynamite Blazer: Value Village (No tags)Shirt: H&M Skirt: Jacob Pantyhose: Multi-Pack WalMartShoes: JustFabWatch: Michael KorsNecklace: Wantable.coPurse: Forever21I think I need some new clothes so I'll have some links available!What do you think of this outfit? xoCarly Jean!...

OOTD: Joe's Birthday Celebration!

December 7, 2012

Yesterday was Joe's 25th birthday, what an old fart! Like most birthdays, it was spent with the family. We had some after dinner snacks and dessert with his family and it was a very lovely chill evening.This outfit, like many of mine, is quite casual. I have a lot of basics in my wardrobe so the majority of my outfits are quite simple. I'm hoping to explore a bit more this upcoming year with my style so look forward to those posts!It may sound incredibly vain to say, but I absolutely love this photo of me haha. Don't mind the random shadow on my face! What I'm wearing:Cardigan: Urban BehaviourI love the detailing on this! I got it for $10 and I wear it all the time!Tank: Forever21 in IvoryJeans: AeropostaleBag: Forever21Boots (not shown):  JustFabI love this cardigan, I wear it a lot near the Holidays because I feel it can look...

My New Favourite Purse!

November 27, 2012

On Saturday I ordered a few things from Forever21 for my "holiday" outfit! I didn't really get anything on sale but I got pieces I will definitely wear more than once. That blog post and video are coming up in December, keep your eyes peeled!One item I bought I am seriously in love with already! It looks more expensive than it is and I have been eyeing it since it came onto the Canadian site.It is the perfect size and colour and a pretty good price for the quality if you ask me!  I had no idea bags would be so hard to take photos of!Mini Boston Bag - $27.80 CADIt also comes in white!I am in love! It is so structured and the faux leather is thick and actually doesn't feel very fake. It is quite roomy as well. I stuffed it pretty good last night and it remained it...
