Don’t let the Winter Blues dull your outfit! Even if the days are shorter and the weather is freezing, I grew up in Montreal (honestly the most fashionable Canadian city in my opinion) where -20C does not stop us gals from going out bare-legged in sky high heels. Of course, a warm coat is necessary but nothing too puffy please. It’s still gotta have style and shape. I may cuddle up in some comfy sweats at home, but there’s no excuse in not trying to dress well when going out. You want to look like you’ve tried (ie. not rolled out of bed and you put on an old sweatshirt), but not so much that everything’s over the top, just a “pulled together” look.
*Tip: Always wear a belt if you want to complete any look, even if you’re wearing jeans and a T-shirt. Sometimes we’re on the run and have no time to plan our outfit, but trust me a nice belt will definitely up your game. I learned this from the men!!
In today’s outfit, I’m adding some summery elements and bright colours to an all black outfit, as well as borrowing from my work-out clothing that I often wear to the gym. You have the see-through top to emphasize the “lightness” amongst the darkness lol, and of course the hot pink bra underneath is a subdued statement piece on its own. And to keep things simple, I’m not wearing much makeup, just a bright coloured lipstick to match the bra and shoes.

You may have noticed that my CL heels modelled above are different than those in my reveal pictures here. The reason is because I first ordered a pair in one size, which is larger, but then my usual size became available. So then I returned the first pair for which the pix were taken already, but now I’m modelling with the 2nd true fitting pair. However, I actually prefer the pattern on the first pair… My shopping life can be very complicated lol.
Anyhow, I’m ready to head out and tread through any extreme weather – just need to grab my Mackage coat! Have a safe and warm weekend for everyone in the east coast!
