Step into Spring in Style

Honestly spring is a weird time of year in Ontario. One day it is snowing and the next day it is warm and sunny. The weather is changing from winter to summer but doesn’t know which season it wants to be in. Thankfully this year I don’t have to deal with Wheatley Spring (thanks Barbados), but to most of my readers you have to put up with it. So to help you, I have put together a collection of outfits that are perfect for Springtime in Canada.

The good thing about this outfit, is that the skirt is paired with a long sleeve shirt! You could also pair it with a cardigan or sweater in case it gets chilly! But your legs have been hiding all winter long and it is time to break out some dresses and skirts. Also LOVE these wedges, I am definitely investing in a pair when I get home (hopefully I’ll find some at Winners!).

A tank top and jeans is a perfect casual look for the spring weather. Bring along a sweater in your bag and you are prepared just in case! Also how cute is her bag? Wicker basket bags and mesh hole bags are in style this year and your spring outfit is the perfect way to debut them.

Don’t be afraid to pair shorts with a sweater or cardigan! This outfit is the perfect example of how to style shorts when it isn’t yet summer. You can also wear some sneakers or flats if you aren’t ready to break out the sandals just yet!

I said this last year and I’ll say it again, overalls are IN! They are also the perfect transition piece, as you can wear a long sleeve or sweater underneath without having to bring a jacket along!

I am obsessed with this outfit! (I actually got my grams to look for the sweater in store for me but they didn’t have it). White jeans are an easy item to dress up or down depending on the occasion and are also perfect for spring. Pair them with a bright top to get rid of your winter blues!

I hope that this post inspires you to break out some fresh styles for the warmer weather! I would love to see your outfits so you can tag my on my Instagram @mslibbeyjean ❤

A Fresh Start to 2019

For those of you that know me, you know I love shopping. I’ll admit, I have a slight shopping addiction. I love finding good deals and I have been known time and time again to buy things just because they are on sale, or are under $5.

Since 2017, I have been following a women on Instagram called Meg or @meghall on Instagram. This year she is doing #NoShop19 meaning that she will not be purchasing any clothing, shoes or house related items for herself all of 2019 unless it needs (needs) to be replaced. She has been talking about doing this for a few weeks and it got me to thinking about my slight shopping problem. When I was trying to stuff the new clothes I got for Christmas into my already full drawers I realized that I needed to make a change.

Yesterday I decided to start the New Year off right by cleaning out all of the clothes that I do not wear anymore/ clothes that do not fit me. This lead me to having a massive bag that I was going to donate to goodwill. My mom also suggest that I put some clothes online to sell (stuff that hasn’t been worn, or in good condition) and I did just that.

This year I am going to try to buy less than I do every other year. That means, not going shopping every weekend because I feel like I deserve a treat and instead embracing my (if I say so myself) fabulous wardrobe that I have spent way too much on already. Of course I will probably go shopping while in Europe next week, but I will still have my mindset of buying less and buying only unique pieces, instead of average pieces just because they were a good deal.

I hope that this gives me a new perspective going into 2019 and I hope this year is filled with experiences and memories instead of items.

Love,

P.s. If you are looking for some super cheap and cute clothing to start your New Year off right you can follow me @libbeyjeanscloset on Instagram to see the pieces I am selling!

Transition Into Fall Flawlessly

Fall is probably one of my favorite seasons. It isn’t too cold, the colors outside are beautiful and most importantly fall fashion is gorgeous! Because I am living in the year round summer sun, I thought I would share some of my fall favorites that will allow you to transition from your end of summer vibes into full pumpkin spice.

Fall 1

Fall is all about neutral colors and plaids, so why not mix the two together? This is a perfect example of doing just that and also layering. It often is cooler in the morning and in the evening so be sure to wear layers, so you aren’t too hot during the middle of the day!

Jean skirts are the perfect way to show off the last of you summer tan before it gets cold outside! Pair a jean skirt with a knit sweater for the ultimate fall look.

Fall 3

Who says you can’t wear white after labour day? My rule is that as long as there isn’t snow on the ground, white is a go! Pairing jeans with a cute sandal or wedge is a great way to transition into the fall weather.

I love all things knit and this knit dress is giving me the feels! Pair long sleeved dresses with a short bootie for a classy and cute fall look.

Here are some more of my fall favs:

Back to School

As soon as August hits, I know the end of summer is near and back to school shopping begins. Though this year my school uniform will be an assorted array of bikinis, I thought that I would do a “Back to College/University” fashion guide, in honor of no one in my family being in high school anymore. With Ivy going into her second year at the Wilfred Laurier University and Elle attending the University of Waterloo, their style game has got to be perfect. I’ve already given them the inside scoop and today I’m going to share that with all of you.

An oversized knit sweater: This is a fashion must have! When sitting in lectures in a freezing cold auditorium you’ll be happy to have a cute and cozy layer! In September and October, be sure to wear a light shirt underneath so when the afternoon sun comes out you can transition your outfit like a pro.

Stripes and Black Jeans: I love everything striped and checked because it is so easy to dress up and down! This outfit is chic and casual at the same time (you don’t want to look like you are trying too hard!). If you don’t own a pair of black jeans be sure to put them on your shopping list, not only do they match everything but they can be worn from school, to work, to dates!

Who says you can’t wear white after labour day?: In personal experience, in some classes you have to dress nicer than others, whether it’s to stand out, impress the teacher or even fit in with everyone else! This outfit is a perfect example of how to “dress up” when going to class! My key rule is you can wear white jeans until it starts snowing (otherwise you will blend in)!

No more bad hair days!: College/ University comes with many new found freedoms and in my cases no dress code. You can now take use of your entire wardrobe, even when you’re in class! Throw on a hat when you’re running late and no one will even know you were having a bad hair day. Work the accessories girl!

T-shirt dress: I love a good t-shirt dress and they are perfect for back to school and fall. Add a jean jacket or army coat when you need a layer and you’ll have the perfect outfit!

Overall, just be yourself! Wear what makes you comfortable because that is what’s going to make you happy! Have fun back to school shopping and a huge good luck to anyone going into their first year of college/uni (especially my little sister Elle Belly).

Love always,
