Fashion- Well plaid in this Mini Paperbag Skirt

Happy Tuesday loves!!

I hope that everyone has recovered from the weekend and is killing it at work this week! Today’s post covers this beautiful plaid skirt that I LOVE this fall season! The features are so flirty and fun and the plaid pairs perfectly with this grey coat- see photos for the full look 🙂

As the skirt is so short and loose fitting (the waist tie allows for a more rouged look), I thought that a fitted top would pair well, and I chose this long sleeved turtleneck top (size S)- who else loves turtlenecks?? They’re so cozy and keeps you warm all day long!

Let me know what you think of this look! I welcome and encourage your feedback 🙂

Have a great rest of your week ladies! xoxo

Fashion- Knitted Midi Skirt- Black/White Houndstooth

Hi loves!! Hope your week is going well, we’re almost at the weekend- hang in there! 🙂

I’m sharing a quick post of today’s outfit which follows the theme of this week’s office looks. I’m absolutely loving this black/white houndstooth skirt for the fall season- it’s the perfect length midi-skirt and the colour is neutral for the office. The material allows for some stretch with an elastic fitted band at the top, instead of a zip so it’s super easy to put on with no button/zipper to fumble with!

I paired this skirt with my go to V-neck black long sleeve bodysuit and finished the look with my black Aldo booties and a black belted coat (forgot the name of where I bought it years ago!).

I’m linking the skirt below as it’s my recent purchase, and I’ve linked a similar coat for you all! 

Enjoy! xoxo

Fashion: FALL in love with this look! 🍁 🍂

Hi friends!

Today on the blog, I’m sharing with you another work outfit for this fall season! 

This beautiful Faux Suede Belted Midi Skirt from Forever 21 is available for purchase at less than CA$35! The classic suede material is perfect for autumn and the midi skirt is a very appropriate length for the office, as it fits just below the knee. My favorite feature is the buckle belt- it gives such a rustic country feel to the skirt!

I paired the skirt this white Mock Neck Blouse from Dynamite. The tan colour of the buttons tie in with the skirt so well that it looks like one complete outfit! My favorite element of this top is the design of the side neck buttons, I think it’s so unique!

I completed the look with my tan booties from Aldo, along with this beautiful waterfall coat from Le Chateau- the camel colour of the coat complements the overall outfit and the nude and tan tones are why this outfit is on my 2018 Fall Fashion list!

See links below on where to get the top and skirt!

Have a great day! xoxo

Fashion- Office look: Textured Pencil Skirt

Happy Monday babes!!

I hope you all had a wonderful week and are ready for another week- back to the grind!

As it’s back to work this week, I thought it fitting to share with you some of my favorite fall 2018 work outfits- I’ll be posting some of my newest finds and sharing on Instagram this week (be sure to follow @livinglissy). Today’s look features my absolute favorite combination of black/grey attire. This pencil skirt is my new fall find; it’s fitted and gives for a sophisticated office look (I’m wearing a size 2 for reference). This skirt is perfect for that interview which you’re trying to ace! It’s feminine yet classy, and that’s what I love most about this work outfit.

I paired this skirt with my go to black V-neck bodysuit from M for Mendocino and threw on this super chic grey/black coat from Xara, along with my staple Aldo black booties.

See below for more photos and let me know what you think! I’m always interested in reading your comments 🙂

Fashion- Pompon See-Through Crochet Tunic Beach Cover Up 🌴

Happy Friday ladies!

Today I’m sharing with you my most worn cover up during my Barbados trip which is this chic tunic with bright colorful pom poms at the back! When I saw it online, I just had to have it- paired with my brilliant white sun hat from Aldo accessories, and this is the ideal beach outfit combination!

The see through material is perfect for the beach, as it shows the swimsuit underneath, but in my opinion, the highlight of this cover up is the crochet design with multicoloured pom poms at the back 💗

See below for more photos of this beautiful crochet tunic- so many different elements and features to love about this cover up! And the best part- it’s 41% off at only USD $16.59/ CAD $22.58! Save big with this one for your next vacation getaway!

Fashion- Thanksgiving inspired outfit 🍁

Hi loves!


Today I’m sharing with you my Thanksgiving inspired maxi dress, which I wore in celebration of the Canadian holiday (while vacationing in Barbados!).

This floral dress (I’m wearing a size small) is beautiful and has a rustic color which I absolutely LOVE for the fall season! The frill sleeves add such a feminine element and complements the floral print so well!

I decided to complete the look with my new favorite pair of fringe earrings which are so incredibly cheap at just under $10! The outfit gives for a bohemian look doesn’t it?!

For my Canadian friends- How did you spend your thanksgiving?
And for my U.S neighbors- Keep this outfit in mind for your upcoming Thanksgiving holiday!

See below for photos and outfit details 🙂

Talk soon! xoxo

Fashion- Button Front Bodycon Dress

Happy Hump Day friends!!

Today’s post features this super trendy bodycon midi-dress from Dynamite clothing. As you know, I was on vacation in Barbados (follow me on IG @livinglissy for travel photos!) and this dress (size XS) was the perfect resort wear for dinner. I paired it with these comfortable yet stylish brown wedges and of course a glass of Pinot Grigio- doesn’t it match so well with the color of the dress? 😉

My favourite features of this dress are the buttons and the slit at the front which gives for a slightly revealing look.

The best news is that this dress was under $50 when I purchased it but it’s currently 40% off at a price of only $30!!

Enjoy loves! xoxo

Fashion- Nautical swimwear ⚓

Hi ladies!

Today’s post covers one of my favorite swimsuits, which is a nautical themed one piece! I especially love the deep V neck and floral embroidery at the front with the low scoop at the back of the swimsuit.

Nautical theme immediately makes me think of water, and what better way to associate it with swimwear, am I right?!

As I mentioned, I usually purchase my swimsuits at local Caribbean stores, which don’t include links for you to shop directly, however, I have included some similar and affordable items below 🙂

Let me know what you think!

Enjoy! xoxo

Fashion- Sweater Weather 🍃

Hey loves! Hope everyone’s week is going great!

Today, I’m sharing with you this beautiful and oh so cozy sweater from DressLily that I’ll be wearing all fall even into winter season! ❄️

This is sure to keep you warm on those cold days and freezing nights- I absolutely love the colour and the style at the back, which is my absolute favourite feature of this sweater!

I’m wearing a size Medium and I LOVE the fit! I think it does run a bit tight fitting so I would suggest to size up 🙂

Let me know if you try this one and what you think of it!

Bye for now friends!

Fashion- September in Style Closet Challenge list ✍👚

Hi ladies! 

Happy 1st of October! I’m starting this post off with a pat on the back for actually dedicating to post a fashion photo each day last month!! 😤

I finally completed the September in Style Closet Challenge and wanted to thank you all for your support and positivity during this 30 day project! It really means so much that many of you took the time to engage with me and with the project itself and helped me to build my IG profile with some swoon worthy fashion posts! 👚

One of the greatest lessons this project has taught me is the importance of discipline and the power of perseverance. By making such a public announcement on Instagram of my closet challenge project, I forced myself to stick to my commitment.

I began the challenge with a list which acted as my guide in my selection of outfits and daily theme.
Then, I determined with which outfit I would associate the chosen theme. This is a very inexpensive and affordable project, as I used many of the clothing items which I already had on hand and used various parings to portray a completely different look each time.

While inexpensive, I chose to purchase some pieces to assist in the seasonal transition from summer to fall with my Fall Haul items 🍁 (check out my IG Live channel for this video and my recent blog post ‘Fall Haul pt 1’!), however, you can do this without paying a single penny- up to you entirely! It’s a very versatile project!

Now, the bulk of the prep was the actual sorting through of clothes and pairing with accessories, shoes, bags, etc. During the weeks of outfit prepping, my bed was entirely covered with clothes and it actually looked like a tornado passed through the room (I have a spare bedroom that I neatly folded all my outfits in anticipation for the weeks ahead- not to worry, I can’t live in total chaos either!)  

On the weekends, I would take many of the photos for the upcoming week (a special thanks to my boo- Lex for all his unwavering support and patience as my personal photographer!📷). Due to inclement weather on some days, we would have to shoot the photos inside, but the combination of both indoor and outdoor photos added a unique element to the overall photo compilation 😊
Overall, this project was so enjoyable, as it gave me something to look forward to each and every day, while allowing me to connect and engage more on a personal level with my followers while also growing my following. I would definitely try this again or maybe even use the same list with a twist!

Here is the complete list if you decide to give it a try! If you’ve done a closet challenge in the past, you can share in the comments below- I’d love to see your fashion ideas and inspiration 💛

Enjoy and have a wonderful week friends! xoxo
