Tinu Street Style (May 23, 2015) 30 I’ve been reaching for outfits that I can throw on without much thought but still look good. Anything that’s going to involve me wearing spanx usually gets left behind. This outfit is truly a representation of how I’m feeling these days. Content, happy and laid back.  This is the reason I refuse to define my personal style. I really just go with the flow.

FLUID

I’m in love with these trousers. Even though  my last post raved about clean lines and structure. The fluidity of these pants spoke to my soul. They move beautifully and can be paired with pretty much anything.

I felt very Parisienne in this outfit. Jacket draped, with my ever trusted Zara heels. On route to Place du Carrousel after a cafe aux lait with my girls. Oui, tres chic!

Yes I know, I’ve been a horrible blogger.  The last few months have been marred with heart ache, depression and indecisiveness. It all started when I got offered my dream job. I was all packed and ready to start my high power career and of course, because it’s me, everything fell apart. I’m not one to sit and feel sorry for myself but this stung. Thank God for amazing friends and ultra supportive family.  I did take one lesson from all of this, as a control freak who makes lists, you can not control every single thing around you.

So in the last few months, I did what any self respecting person would have done in my situation. I shopped online and ate tons ice cream. A LOT OF ICE CREAM. Organic peanut butter and Vanilla Häagen-Dazs  anyone? Needless to say, I’ve got lots of outfit posts to come!

My t-shirt is from Melissa Araujo’s BASIC line, which you can find here. Its made from Bamboo cotton and the moment I put it on, I had to send her a love message. It’s so soft, comfy and flattering and  has become my favorite piece in my closet.

Before I sign off can we take a minute to recognize how awesome this lipstick from Makeup Forever is!

So Fringe

How fun is this outfit. Anything fringe reminds me of the 1920’s, which to be honest is my least favorite era when it comes to fashion. It looked like a fun time though. Which I seem to be getting none of these days. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see snippets of an impromptu trip I took to LA. I literally booked it the day before. Tired from a super stressful week, I decided I needed some sun and a little revitalization. Let’s face it those West Coasters know a thing or two about fun. I wasn’t disappointed. My favorite part of the trip was discovering Uber.  My life is forever changed.

Military Vibes

 Can we just take a minute and take in the fact how amazing this jacket is. So on the money with the military trend and very Autumn/Winter 2013. Can you believe I also only paid $10 for it. Yes 10 bucks. When it comes to vintage shopping, I super suck. I have no patience. The smell, the time consuming nature. It exhausts me really. Then my friend Vanessa convinced me to tag along on one of her shopping expeditions and BAM! This jacket. Its a jacket that actually belonged to a Canadian Soldier and has some inscription on the inside.  Its so warm in the winter and  on days I want to throw something on without thinking, I reach for this. $10 bucks! I can’t get over that.

Its Thanksgiving here in Canada. Of course I have to tell you guys what I’m thankful for. I’m thankful to all of you that come to my blog, everyone who ever left a comment, sent an email. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Kanye Says…

You’ve got to admit, Kanye West was on to something when he, hmm, invented leather joggers. Or shall I say he brought leather joggers to the fore front of fashion, because LAWD help me these are so comfy. Comfortable in every sense of the word. I think I near fell asleep in them. So if Kanye, husband of Kim Kardashian says they are fashion, then who am I to say otherwise. *Kanye Shrug*

Orange + Cropped

I once wished this cropped-top style trend would die! But then I thought wait a minute, who exactly says I can’t wear a cropped top. So this top, which is actually a bikini top and this skirt, which I’ve worn to the death has become my favorite combo.

Its September!! Not only is September my birthday month, its also the beginning of Fall. My favorite season. The layers, the boots will all be making a comeback! I can’t wait.

Draped Thangs

There’s something incredibly grown up and Fashion ”Weeky” (if there was ever such a word) about a jacket draped across one’s shoulders. So convenient and perfect for those slightly chilly summer evenings.  I’m sure I’ll be wearing my jackets draped, well into Fall….which of course is my favorite season of all time. Partly because, early fall is my birthday!

Fatkini

There’s something completely liberating when you decide to accept your body. I first heard about fatkini from Gabi from Gabifresh’s blog and I must admit I wasn’t sold the first time. Partially due to the self loathing I had for my own body. In my head I have the body of a super model in reality not so much. Then I was diagnosed with Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and now I have learned,  there are certain things beyond my control. Thus came the self acceptance.

Confession: this is the first time I’ve actually owned a bikini OR a fatkini if you like. And I want to thank TopShop for not making this high waisted number dowdy and old lady like. This post is dedicated to everyone curvy, skinny, tall, short, pear shaped, apple shaped. What ever you are, love thyself.
