I celebrated my birthday on November 3rd (which thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday) it was a great day. For the last few years birthday's have had a bitter sweet feeling, I love the feeling on birthdays where you get lots of love from everywhere (and gifts of course) but also with becoming older it's a really scary feeling. I don't even want to believe how old I really am (I am going to pretend I am 26 forever) but the true is is that I just turned 29 (OUCH). It hurts to say it out loud and I think it has to do with this overwhelming pressure and desire to be SOMEBODY and to be successful. With 30 being right around the corner, I feel like I have not accomplished enough, that I am not successful enough. But what does that really mean anyways????

Where I am going with this is that maybe I need to take the pressure off myself a bit. Things are not the same as they use to be where life was all about getting married and having babies young and calling that success. Success can be whatever you want it to be and in fact I think I have had a lot of success recently.

As I talked about in this very personal and proud post here, I recently changed my eating habits and have tried to exercise more and I could not be happier and more proud of myself and how far I have come. I might be the oldest I have been been but I also think I feel and look the best I ever have...and that is something to be proud of. That is success right there, I never thought I would get here and I did and if I can do this, what else can I do!?!?!

So instead of worrying about 30 and how far I haven't come, I'm going to try and stay positive, enjoy and soak in this amazing feeling I have lately and how good I feel about myself right now and how far I have come. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that feeling and I want everyone to feel that way about themselves. We can't change yesterday, we don't know what tomorrow will bring but we can live in the moment and be happy and make others happy. Let's love each other and most importantly ourselves!!!

Forever 21 coat, top and jeans / Acne Studios boots / Louis Vuitton bag / Daniel Wellington watch and bracelet

Since loosing quite a bit of weight, a lot of my jeans and pants have not fit me so I only have a few I have been rotating between. So I needed to do some jean shopping the other day but I also didn't want to spend too much if my body is still changing so I headed to Forever 21 and tried on a few pairs.

When I saw these jeans on the hanger I thought they looked cool and I have always wanted to be one of those super chic girls wearing flares and looking hot so I decided to try them and holy sh*t, I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I loved them.

I'm about 5'4 but these jeans make me look so much taller and thinner too and I mean who doesn't want that!!! I have been wearing these non stop like for my birthday celebration. Also another bonus is that my Acne Studios cony boots work perfectly with these jeans and pretty much my whole wardrobe.

Now I am one of those cool stylish girls wearing awesome flares who looks skinny and tall!!!

Forever 21 coat / American Apparel sweater / Zara jeans / Rag & Bone boots / Louis Vuitton bag

I don't know about you guys but I love an outfit that is very monochrome. Wearing the same colour or different shades of the same colour is a cool look I think. So clearly you can tell that is what I was going for here. Thought I will admit brown does seem like an odd colour to do that with, but I actually have quite a bit of brown shades in my wardrobe and I love it. I find it to be a cozy winter shade and most of my brown pieces are more geared towards colder weather.

And speaking of cozy, this coat is probably one of the coziest item I own. I bought this coat last year in the sale at Forever 21 and I am SO happy I did. I love this coat, I only wish I had it in more colours. When I am feeling extra cold and want to be really warm outside, this is the coat I always want to reach for. Which means I should probably try to find a coat like this in black, then I would definitely get more use out of it. But lucky for me this coat goes amazingly well with my Louis bag and I love the pair together.

Aritzia trench coat / Comme des Garçons play stripe long sleeve / Zara mom jeans / Converse sneakers / Louis Vuitton bag

After a full week of work, running around, dressing up it's nice to have those chilled weekends where you get to wear your favourite casual clothes. Something that you can lounge around at home in and then easily grab and coat and walk out the door.

This look is definitely one of those looks. You can most likely find me wearing this top on any weekend. It has that perfect easy going feel and because of the icon nature of this top, it gives your outfit that extra little pop of amazingness without even trying. I seriously can not rave about this top enough....maybe I should get another?!?!

Also you can't have a casual comfy weekend look without a great fitting pair of jeans and sneakers. Literally I only wear different variations of this sort of look on the weekends, like right now as I write this I am wearing my super duper comfy hoodie and a stretching pair of black skinny jeans. I mean you can't go wrong on the weekend with items like this.

American Apparel shirt / Aritzia trench coat and pants / Acne Studios boots / Elizabeth & James bag / Oak & Fort earrings

It's exactly around this time of year when all the festive parties start to happen. This weekend was all the Halloween events, clearly that's not what I dressed up for (though I will dress up for work on Tuesday). But there are usually tons of events, get togethers going on now so it's now that you are buying for party looks. But party looks are different for everybody, some people still keep things quite casual, or super sexy or really fancy. For me, it really depends on my mood and what I am doing on  how I will dress. Normally though I like to keep it a mix of things, still wearing something in my comfort zone but with a hint of dressed up sexy.

This outfit is along those lines. I also like to feel season appropriate, which is why I love the colours of this look. I took a high rise wide leg pant and paired it with a sheer shirt that I unbuttoned and wore of the shoulder both in very autumnal colours which created a perfect fall festive look.

When I wear wide leg pants I like to pair boots with them, I think it's the right match for each other as well as keeping everything else minimal. No added fuss because you already are wearing stand out pieces.

So this is one party look from me, but I will be sharing more soon, especially with my birthday coming up next week!!!
