Timeless tan. How to style the Camel coat: Part 2 

Today’s Timeless tan piece is a coat I’ve owned for close to 5 years! I bought this cutey at Forever 21 back in 2012 and it still looks as good as new! This is why I absolutely love the tan trend, it never goes out of style. 

The cut of this coat is more of a formal blazer cut. It’s literally the best of both worlds; perfect for winter days when you need the warmth of a coat but still want to look formal. 

Coat No. 2

For this look I’ve teamed the coat up with a pair of formal pants. This look is perfect for the corporate world!

Without changing much I just replaced the formal pants with a pair of jeans. This look is perfect if you have an after work event planned but not enough time to go home and change outfits. Just throw on some blue jeans and you’re ready to go. It’s smart casual yet still very chíc. 





Jeans: Topshop

Timeless Tan : How to style the Camel Coat. Part 1 

My definition of the ideal closet is one that is made up of timeless pieces. An encapsulation of classic items that are not affected by the passage of time or changes in fashion. 

When I think of the tan coat that is exactly the image I get; a timeless classic every woman should own. The tan coat is a staple in every wardrobe and is constantly getting re-invented. 

Most of my closet is made up of such pieces. I buy only neutral colours to give my closet longevity and elegance without having to keep purchasing the latest trends. All of the tan coats I’ll be showing in the next few posts have been in my closet for more than two years. Yet I am still able to wear them today and still be just as fashionable. 

I’ve done a Four part lookbook in which I’ll be showing you how I style Four of my favorite tan coats. With each coat I’ll show you two or three ways of dressing the coat up. 

This week we are focusing on the ankle length tan coat. I purchased this from Boohoo back in 2015. I absolutely love this coat, it’s like the gift that keeps on giving!

In this look I’ve teamed the coat up with a knitted jumper and a chunky snood for an extra cold winter morning. As usual I have very minimal accessories, the heels are what really pull this look together.

This is my street style take on the tan coat. This look is perfect for autumn where the weather still allows you to go out without too many layers on.

Summer style trends ✨

Summer is definitely my favorite time of the year. I get to soak up some much needed Vitamin D and enjoy the suns’ warm rays on my skin. 

It’s winter now on my end of the world and everyday I reminisce about summer and I countdown till it’s warm out again. If you’re anything like me then you also can’t stand the cold! 

This past summer I was crushing very hard on the Off shoulder top trend. I stocked up on several last summer (shhh…don’t tell my fiance) and they were always a go to outfit for me whenever I had somewhere “nice” to go.

I love how you can dress them up or down just by simply throwing on a pair of heels and some accessories to complete the look. They give an ‘effortless chíc’ look which works for a lot of occasions.

I’ve attached a few pics throughout the post, of how I styled some of my fave off shoulders. You’ll notice that in all of them I hardly added much to the look.

70% of my wardrobe is made up of neutral colors. You’ll mostly find white, black, nude or grey if you go through my closet. So when the time came to go shopping for an outfit for our Engagement party you can imagine that naturally I gravitated towards my “safe” colors. 

The owner of Fuschia Boutique in Newmarket wasn’t having any of that though, she urged me to “just try” a little bit of color because “what’s the worst thing that can happen?” Tag teaming with one of my closest friends I quickly realised it’s a battle I wouldn’t win. Soo I threw caution to the wind and I tried on a couple of – as I like to call them – ‘coloured dresses’. My my was I pleasantly surprised!! Most colours looked amaaazing!! 

So fast forward eight dresses later I tried on “the one”. Ladies you know that feeling when you try on “thee dress” and all your questions are answered and you don’t even want to bother trying on the rest because you and that garment just bonded?? Yes!! That feeling! That’s the one I had when I tried on this red number from the J’adore collection. 


I always dismissed red as being soo loud!! but red on this dress gave that “I have arrived” feeling. Which I guess is a good feeling to have when it’s your own party, right?! Lol 



I’ve recreated the look I had on my Engagement party as I was not able to get any good pics on the night of just the dress (family and photobombers). I used minimal accessories and plain nude heels as I feel the look doesn’t need too much added to it.
