In Month of Style, Style

A Month’s worth of Style: February 2017

I use the StyleBook app and you can read my review of the app here and here are all of my Month of Style posts.

MONTH OF STYLE

You can shop all of my looks here.

As you can see, I didn’t go out as often because there are a lot of blank spots where I stayed at home instead of going out and spending money due to my new Semi-Emergency mode of spending.

I wore a lot of jeans.

Mostly this pair, the AG Farrah High-Rise’s which are ah-mazing jeans and well worth the $$$$. They feel like pyjamas.

5 FAVOURITE OUTFITS OF THE MONTH

By the way, the scarves I made (all shown below), can be purchased here: Wanderlust Scarves

YELLOW SUBMARINE

Shop this Look ]

I flirted with a lot of yellow this month (this was the other outfit, where I went all Goldilocks), having a bright sort of dandelion yellow cashmere I scored on a deeeeeep discount, and mixed it up with none other than my favourite print MAPS of course, and paired it with a fun watch.

I actually made this Toronto map silk scarf above. You like? 🙂 DIY FTW! I also have another Toronto Landscape one for sale here.

You can buy the exact Toronto Grid scarf here for $55 USD (free shipping worldwide).

It was all getting a little too girly, so I added a strong studded ring to balance it back out, and kept my thrifted navy leather bucket bag neutral in the whole look.

COBALT BLUE ON OVERDRIVE

Shop the Look ]

This look is one of my all-time favourites and bound to be repeated. It’s cobalt blue on overdrive (one of my favourite colours).

I kept it purposefully monochromatic, and the rest of the accessories were simple and neutral, from my taupe PS1 bag (you can buy the smaller version thrifted here) to my nude suede M. Gemi shoes.

FLOWER BOUQUET

[ Shop the Look ]

I’m wearing another one of the silk scarves I made. This is a photo I took when I was in London at the Kew Gardens, and it became my scarf, and the feature of my outfit, which is otherwise pretty plain.

You like!? 🙂 You can buy the exact scarf (a duplicate will be made) here for $55 USD (free shipping worldwide).

I secured it in place with my favourite vintage flower brooch (video here) and to play off the flower in the scarf, I wore my gingko ring, which made me think about tying in the brass of the ring with my studded black leather hobo bag (sort of similar here in taupe).

COSY AND CUDDLY

[ Shop the Look ]

Wearing my faaaaavourite coat with my coated black skinny jeans, a heathered black top, and a peacock feather beveled necklace, with my super comfortable suede booties (surprising as they’re heeled) and a nice, feminine watch.

I have no idea why this look works so well for me, but it does. It’s both cosy and comfortable but edgy at the same time.

“WINTER IS COMING”

[ Shop the Look ]

Seriously.

Inspired by Game of Thrones for this outfit, and wore my faux fur stole with my studded belt over it (I had to wrap it around a bit in the front), and added some matching accessories (black stone rings and gunmetal watch).

BOLD COLOURS MADE AN APPEARANCE

Finally. The coming Springs = Bold Colours making a comeback in my wardrobe. I’m making an effort to get out of my dull, dark, gray doldrums.

FLOWERS TOO!

More flowers! MORE! All spring-related and happy to show up.

MORE DIY STUFF APPEARING

Those scarves? RIIIIGHT? I have more that I made, I only just happened to wear those two in outfits this month.

I’m so pleased at how they turned out.

BOOTIES CREEPING BACK IN

Now that the snow is melting, booties are creeping back into my wardrobe and winter boots are being banished as long as the ground stays dry and snow-free.

COSY + CUDDLY SEEMS TO BE THE M.O.

Even though I am wearing more boots and less winter-y stuff, I still covet that cosy, cuddly feeling and get it in my sweaters and jackets. There’s nothing better than cuddling up in something so comfortable and yet still so chic.

P.S. I post all of my outfits on Instagram @saverspender, you can shop all of my looks here, and I use the StyleBook app and you can read my review of the app here with all of my Month of Style posts.
