Trend Struck by Halter Necklines

I am OBSESSED with the halter neckline and have been for some time now. I'm actually just really into the 90's being back. So much I would wear a choker everyday if I could. Obviously if you are one for liking your chest exposed this isn't a neckline you will lean toward but for me the coverage isn't an issue. I actually find the peek-a-boo of my collarbone and shoulders with these lines to be sexy. This Wilfred Rians tank from Aritzia that I'm wearing I'm in love with. In fact this whole look is probably one of my favourites, it's been on repeat quite a few times already for 2015. It's light weight, drapey fabric and not too cropped length makes it perfect for styling up or down. The halter neckline is dominating everywhere especially Aritzia this season in case you're wanting to try this trend out for yourself!!

Trend Struck by Slouchy Trench Coats

Easily one of my favourite pieces right now is this super amazing slouchy trench coat I scooped up from Urban Outfitters. It's relaxed fit, light fabric and go-with-anything style makes it an essential for Spring. On cooler days I've even been throwing my leather jacket on top and it looks absolutely rad, I'll style that for you in the future. Something else I'm excited to share with you is that I'm back as a brand ambassador for Brave Leather!!! I'm so excited to share with you some of my favourites from their latest collection this year. To start things off I rocking a side chain belt that just adds a tad bit more coolness to this very simple look. At first it immediately made me think of those guys that used to wear chains attached to their wallets but something about the matte black chain I totally dig so wanted to see how I could style it in my own way. What do you think about the side chain? Yes or is it hard to get past those high school visions? More Brave to come!! xxUrban outfitters slouchy trench, Silence + Noise Parka, Slouchy Trench

Trend Struck by Thigh-High Slits


Popularity of thigh-high slits aren't anything new but the trend has been changing. When this risqué slit emerged on the red carpet by Angelina Jolie in the form of a gown that's exactly how we adopted the style into our wardrobe and still do. However, now I find it's becoming even more wearable so we don't have to wait around for special events that require getting fancied up. With a slit so high like this I'm more aware of how I'm styling the remainder of my look. As much as I love the sexiness to the slit I'm not into taking the overall look to the extreme. This outfit is a great example of how I prefer to wear my high slitted skirt. I really love toning down looks that we may only think could be dressed up and it's done by simply mixing in those casual pieces like this casual knit. What are your thoughts on the trend? Is the thigh-high slit a little too high for comfort or are you all about it as I am?Oak and fort sweater, Grey Aritzia Skirt

Trend Struck by Bomber Jackets

There is a perfectly good explanation as to why I'm into bomber style jackets and that is because they fit into this whole sportswear style that is thankfully still going strong. It's actually pretty crazy that I haven't pulled the trigger on one until recently because I love the look of them so much. This one I'm wearing is actually more of a sweater but has all the details to pull off the bomber look. I went to NYC for my 30th back in March with three of my girlfriends so we all decided to take a little piece of the City home with us by grabbing an article of clothing that represented the Big Apple. Favourite bomber styles of mine usually include leather detailing {obviously} but I also really dig prints. What do you think about the bomber jacket trend?
