Spring is on its way (at least I hope so!), and with that comes new styles and pretty colours! I had the pleasure of going to my local mall and picked up a few pieces for spring!
In BC our springs are kind of a whirl wind of sun, rain, blossoms and of course a storm or two! My spring picks reflect that in that they’re light weight, but also a little snuggly!
My first outfit is super casual and perfect for a school day, or running errands on the weekend! This sweater is thin but also super soft inside! I love the nude colour of it and I feel like it’s easy to wear with multiple outfits.
Another piece I found at the bay was this really cute sweater that has a wrap detail on the front! I think that this is so flattering, and would also be super easy to dress up, or even wear to work!
I paired it with high waisted jeans, and my Steve Madden slip ons for a casual day time look. This is something I would totally wear to work, or out on a date night with my husband.
My last pick was this super cute cardigan from Garage. I can’t say no to a grey sweater, and this one was too cute with the loose knit. I feel like this is a staple for spring because it is so simple but easy to pair with nearly everything.
I’ve styled everything pretty casual just because that’s how I like to dress, but each of these pieces could easily be dressed up a bit! Sevenoaks also has a ton of dresses and skirts if you’re the type to brave the rain and cooler temperatures in a BC spring!
If you have time definitley go check out the new arrivals at Sevenoaks and tag them on social media with #styleatsevenoaks!
I feel like lashes are very in right now, theres tons of new mascaras, and of course lash extensions, but theres also good ‘ol falsies! Now I do love extensions but unfortunately my eyes are a bit too sensitive, so falsies it is! Keeping this in mind I was so excited when Esqido sent me a couple pairs of their lashes along with their glue to test out.
Lashes shown are “XO“
For everyday I’m strictly a mascara kind of girl, but for a special night or occasion I like to amp it up. I usually have a difficult time with lashes, but for whatever reason these were easy! All I did was cut them to size and then used the ‘companion’ glue from Esqido on the band (let it get tacky) and placed them on my lash line with a pair of tweezers to apply and viola! They actually looked perfect.
The lashes themselves are so beautiful and fluffy, the band is black and a bit thicker, but blends in so nicely with eyeliner. I wore them for around 8 hours and they stayed on and didn’t bother me at all, in fact I could hardly feel them!Esqido does sell mink lashes, but the ones pictured (and the only ones I have) are synthetic which is awesome! The synthetic line is called Unisyn™ and they claim to be “the world’s first true premium synthetic false eyelashes, made with a blend of ultra-fine synthetic fibres for an ultra-natural look”.
Overall I would say that I’m converted to their lashes, and will definitely purchase more in the future!
Don’t forget to check them out on Instagram and on their site to see their beautiful lashes!
September always feels like the new year to me, I work in a school and I’m also a university student so it’s a big change from the summer. While I’m in school organization is key for me! I’m really not sure how I would function without my lists, calendars and sticky notes! I thought since my organization is so important to me I would share a few of my favourite things from STIL Classics!
A planner is always a must for me, and this year I decided to try something new so I purchased the 6 month planner from STIL Classics! What drew me to this planner was the day plan + task list. It’s also undated so it gives me the flexibility to start the planner literally whenever I want to!
I also got the planning stickers and washi tape to use in conjunction with my planner and honestly, they are so convenient! If your the type of person who loves planning but isn’t big on writing (or just loves stickers) you will love these! The washi tape is also so fun to create a little pizazz on a day where I have a fun event or occasion!
In addition to a planner, I absolutely need a notebook (or 5, lets just be honest). Whether I’m in classes or not I love to have a new notebook to jot down ideas, blog posts, or of course notes when I am in class! This one has become a fast favourite for me; I just love the simplicity of the cover and the quality of the paper!
Lastly, I found something new! This frosted plastic pouch has been a life saver! I got the larger size which is the perfect size to fit any regular sized document, and it even has some extra room so it’s easy to throw in my notebook + planner. The best part about it, and kind of why I bought it is because it keeps everything important safe + dry!
If you’re looking to get a new planner or any other stationary essentials I highly recommend STIL classics, theres just something so perfect about the simple design and quality that goes into each and every product!
