So a couple weeks back I had one of the most fun days ever. I was given the opportunity to shop my little heart out over at Scarborough Town Centre with two other beauties. Sara Kooner, editor-in-chief, over at 29secrets.com has been someone I've admired from afar for all her achievements for some time now so I was thrilled to get to work with her more closely for this project. Our other partner in crime for the day who I hadn't met before was Elaisha Jade, youtube personality and all other sorts of thangs, over at ElaishaJade.com and my goodness this girl had me laughing the entire time. She most definitely is a personality you gotta love her. It was honestly such a fun filled day to hang with these two, shop the day away then see our different personalities come through in each of our looks. So the style challenge was to put together an outfit incorporating winter trends and well, we pretty much nailed the task. Watch for yourself to see just how much fun we actually had plus the results of our challenge!
MY LOOK: I'm all about the sugary pastels, they attract me instantly so I combined soft pinks with black to tie in my edgier side. Trends that are incorporated in my look aside from pastels are cropped knits, kind of really obsessed with them right now, sleeveless jackets or long vests for layering and masculine inspired shoes.
SARA'S LOOK: I was so impressed by how easily this look quickly came together. I caught myself getting excited with each piece she snagged because I could see it all coming together. Sara's actually got a lot of popular trends going on right now. Oversized pom on toques are HUGE (and ridiculously adorable), bomber jackets which I'm always had a thing for and don't see the love ever fading, backpacks and even metallics specifically like the one she chose, sneakers (best trend ever to happen) and nude for lips.
ELAISHA'S LOOK: Her look was actually a total surprise to me, I didn't know what this one was up to but it turned out soft and well put together. For Elaisha's look she layered up two statement necklaces creating a super awesome piece, lace-up shoes are on the rise and I've been eyeing the ones she scooped up and finally a monochromatic look that I don't think is really going anywhere.
So what do you think? Did we nail that challenge or what? I love that all three looks were different yet somehow ended up being so cohesive. What a dream team! Big thanks to Scarborough Town Centre for carrying everything we needed to successfully complete the task at hand with ease. And if you are inspired by any of these pieces scoop them up while all these Black Friday sales are happening!! Get on the trends ladies! xx
