Knitted with orange

SATURDAY BUZZ Let me begin by recounting to you all the origin of this outfit.  That morning I was putting together potential outfits and laying them on my bed deciding on which outfit I should wear that day.  I don't exactly remember as to how I came across this sweater, but the moment I laid eyes on it I knew that was going to base my entire outfit around it.  This gorgeous opaque orange cable knit sweater belongs to my mom, but she's let me borrow it whenever I want. SCORE!  The sweater is so thick and well made it's definitely a good buy.  So, I asked her where she got it from and she replied: "The Bay".  The Bay is a huge department store where I live and I was thrilled!  I don't know about other people, but I love department stores.  They are kind of like thrift stores, but obviously they are not hand-me-downs.  They sell designer brands as well as small brand names.  I believe it's safe to say that this sweater is now one of my mom's best buys, personally.

I will fore warn you all that I did manage to take quite a gallery load of pictures for this outfit and it was quite hard to narrow them down, so if you find yourself scrolling through this page like there was no end... Trust me. There is!

Also, I hope to be able to find more time in my day to shoot more outfits and be more active here.  I really do love putting together outfits, documenting them through pictures, and writing about my adventures on my blog.  I'll do my best to post every other day or more if if can!

I also want to mention that the night before I was feeling quite bored with my nail game and wanted to add a little spunk.  I managed to relocate where I put my acrylic nail glue, and well the rest is history.  Now I am current'y typing on my keyboard with extremely long (in my opinion), metallic blue acrylic nails.

Then, while taking pictures at a park this cute dog approached me just as my mom took the picture!  This really made my day.  I love dogs and animals overall.  They always manage to put a smile on my face even if I am feeling down.  So, obviously I had to include the dog in my post!

Lastly, I wanted to tell you all about a company called "West Egg".  West Egg is a company that sells brands at discounted rates of up to 80% off products!  They host over 113 brands including Ray-Ban, Lavin Paris, Gevenchi and Danielle Welington!  On top of all that, I also got you all a special hook up for an extra 10% off your purchase with the code 'wearwestegg'.  Feel free to check out their website  at  www.westegg.co/b/XQg6 if you are interested.

A WHILE BACK So basically, I was at home and wanted to take some really cool pictures.  I didn't exactly know what kind of pictures, but I just knew they had to be c-o-o-l.  This is what became of that!  I'm really impressed with how they turned out.  Obviously the quality is not the best because I don't have a really good camera and this was taken via Photo Booth.  But hey, what can you do?

As I started setting up for the "shoot" I wasn't exactly too sure where I was going with this but I had somewhat of an idea.  I also took inspiration from some amazing Instagram feeds that I've been following for a long time now.  But mainly, I just really wanted to take the opportunity to put my head chain to work and show it off! I'm obsessed with it and only wish I could wear it every single day!

There are a lot more photos from this shoot then I'm showing, however these are my favourite.  I wasn't sure if I wanted to post these pictures or when to post these because this isn't the typical post here on St Style.  Nevertheless, I do hope you all found this somewhat COOL!

Let me know what you think of it! <3

In some of the pictures, you can see my laptop in the reflection! So, look out for that! :)

OVER THE MONTH OF MARCH This is a different style of post on my blog, but I really enjoy the idea behind it and hope to create more of this style of content for you all.  For the past month, I've been collecting quite a few items that I really want to share.  I was originally planning on making a Youtube video for this, but decided otherwise because I thought a post would be more interesting.  Most of the items you will see where gifted to me for my birthday because it was this month so that's why there's probably going to be more in the goodies post than the rest. :)  I hope you enjoy this post and I'd love to here your feedback! Also, I you'd like, comment what was the favourite thing you got this month!

Forever21 and Urban Outfitters gift cards.  Both these stores are for sure on the top of my favourite practical stores to shop at.  Not so much UO, but when they have their extra 50% of sale items that's an incredible bargain.  I will definitely be sure to spend this money wisely and on items that I REALLY do see myself using in the future.  Perhaps you will see them in a future blogpost? ;)

Ardene nail polish and Hollywood Gelato gift card.  I am super stocked to try out this sparkly green nail polish! I've never tried Ardene's nail polish line so If I really like it, perhaps I'll report back to  you guys! I'm also excited to get some use out of discounted gelato!  I mean seriously, who does not want gelato?  This is the perfect excuse.

Necklaces from H&M and Spanner.  Slowly but surely I'm starting to grow and expand my necklace collection.  You will definitely being seeing these in many outfit posts!

Rings for H&M.  Likewise I am also expanding my ring collection and when H&M was having an incredible sale on their jewelry, I knew for sure that these gorgeous silver rings were coming home with me.  They give a very strong industrial vibe which I am really channeling at the moment!

Sunnies from Ardene's and Insurgent movie.  It seems that I as I am writing this, I'm really liking my jewelry and accessories this month.  Perhaps it's because it's spring, and spring brings out the accessories in me?  Anyways, I received the cheetah print sunnies for my birthday and am in love!  Where have they been my whole life? I don't even want to know.  I also picked up a pair of 3D glasses when I went to see Insurgent in theatres and decided to pop out the lenses.  I don't when I'm going to where these in public but I think eventually I'll find the courage to.  I definitely remember as a child 3D glasses were so hip, trendy and cool!

Lip crayons from Nars, Maybelline makeup remover, Covergirl eye shadow, and a lipstick to which I don't actually know what brand. I usually don't get this much makeup each month.  All of these were gifts! haha.  Anyways, I signed up for the Deplore Beauty Insider Rewards program and this year they were giving out Nars lip crayons which is so cool!  They make me feel so glamorous!  But, my favourite product from whole haul is this lipstick which I don't know the brand name! How ironic.  Usually we tend to think high end products are the best, but that's not always the case.  This lipstick is hydrating, pigmented, and a gorgeous neutral shade!  I don't think I should say more because you guys even be able to purchase.

WetNWild palette, revlon smokey eyeshadow duo stick, Annabelle lipliner.  I've recently discovered the amazness of the WetNWild eye shadows thanks to a friend!  They are super pigment, blend easily and don't reiterate my eye.  These colours are so incredible wearable and have surely made their way into my everyday makeup routine.  As for the Revlon saw stick, I have yet to try it.  However, I have been using the Annabelle lipliner quick frequently these past few weeks.  It's a gorgeous purple pink colour and I pair it under the Unknown lipstick!

Mini Eggs and Sugar Mountain Candy!  I had the option to not include these bad boys into this post, but lets be real.  Who doesn't love candy and chocolate?  Thanks to my friends and their lovely gifts, I will be slowly snacking on these and will become very sad once they are all gone. :)

Iphone 4s cases, Ardene's earnings and earbuds.  I was in dear need of a new iPhone case because if you saw my old one you would straight up agree.  I've popped the blue one on my phone at the moment and am very pleased.  It definitely keeps my phone safe because I don't even want to know the exact number of times I've dropped my phone.  I've also been needing new earbuds because I always misplace mine.  I also received these feather earrings as gifts an while one pair is currently missing because I recently wore it, I can safely say that I'm in love.  When I was younger I would always wear these extremely long and statement earrings and I believe these have researched that love for a strong eating game.

Under1Sky bag.  This month I was very fortunate to have been contacted by a lovely company called Under1Sky.  I'd never heard of their brand before so I was quite doubtful at first but they quickly proved me wrong.  This bag is so soft and of great quality!  It's also a 2-in1 bag so there's actually a shoulder bag that you can remove from it!  I will be posting more outfits with this bag so stay updated!

A bunch of graphic tees from Aeropostale.  These tees are a great "I'm running late for school but still want to look like i tried, ya feel me?" kind of essential.  Just throws these over with a pair of black jeans and you're good to go!

Florals tucked away

Hello my dear blogger friends!  I am super duper stoked to be showing you this outfit because personally, this is probably my favourite outfit so far this year!  I'm so tempted to wear this exact outfit all day everyday!  Wouldn't that just be so much less stressful? :)

The reasons why I love this ensemble so much is because of how well the colours correlate with one another and the different materials incorporated.  Going from the knitted sweater to my studded leggings, this outfit just screams ME.  I love playing around with different styles and patterns and being able to mix them all together.

*Looking at this outfit as I type this, I truly think one day I just woke up and threw on ALL my favourite things to wear in an outfit.  Didn't that work out grand!

So, moving on to the idea behind this outfit, I think it is absolutely adorable and street-style chic for spring transitions is because of how bright and florally it is yet it still keeps me warm during those not-so-amusing colder days.  The floral is there because, um hello, it's spring why would't there be any?  But, it isn't so in your face like: "I woke up like dis and threw on a bright neon floral top cuz i love spring" kind of look.  The fact that I was able the incorporate florals, yet make them minimal in a sense and include it solely as an undergarment, makes me feel pretty good about myself :)

To top that off, throwing on a pair of studding leggings is every girls dreams is it not?  I mean, Hey.  Let's be real, 85.0435% of the female population most likely wears leggings.  Why wouldn't you wanna jazz up your day and wear ones with studs? It's fool proof!

But hey, lets not forget the SHOES. I can you all that these will be my go to shoes for spring.  They really bring their own pizzazz to the table and add so much more personality and dimension to an outfit.  Y'all get me?  I think it's because lately i've really been all about those oxfords!

This outfit just all in all leaves me with a certain "Je ne said quoi".
