Fashion- "On Wendesdays, we wear pink!" Outfit inspo from the ‘Mean Girls’ movie

Hello friend!

I hope your week is going well! I’m definitely ready for a much needed long weekend- July 1 is a public holiday here as it’s Canada Day! I can’t wait for the holiday festivities! But first, I want to share with you today’s outfit which I call ‘Pretty in Pink’.

I was roaming the city and with today being Wednesday, I decided to adopt the ‘Mean Girls’ rule of wearing pink clothing! This ultra-chic pair of high waist pink and black shorts is perfect for city adventures, as its light and fits the waist perfectly. The shorts are true to size and don’t have much stretch so I suggest sizing up- I’m wearing a small in the pair of shorts. The complete outfit, both shorts and top is from Charlotte Russe, but as the style is no longer in stock, I’ve linked a few similar items below.

        SHEINPolka Dot Belted Paperbag Shorts – CA$9.00 (18% off!)

        SHEINHigh Waist Button Side Dot Shorts – CA$18.00

        LulusSpa-t Treatment Black Polka Dot Shorts – US$32.00 (waitlist)

The sandals which I’m wearing are my most comfortable and stylish pair of Treanna Black Flats (I also own a pair in White) which are only CA$49.99 and are currently on a special deal where you can buy one, get one 70% off!

Finally, I completed the look with my trendy Nude Lace Tote from Aldo Shoes, but sadly, it is no longer in stock, so I’ve linked a similar item here:

I’ve also paired the complete outfit with this light and versatile medium wash denim jacket from Dynamite clothing, which is a summer staple for many of us!

As this outfit is inspiration from Mean Girls movie, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite quotes from the hit movie ‘That’s SO FETCH!’- what’s yours? Comment below!

I hope you try this outfit look and let me know what you think! I love pink for spring and summer season as the color is so bright and fun! Wishing you a wonderful day and rest of week- xoxo

Pretty in Pink 💓

Hi loves!!!

These past few weeks have been super hectic! Life is so crazy right now with holiday party planning to shopping for Christmas gifts to offering my services at my company bake sale- I need a vacation! I think we all tend to have a period where we go non-stop and overcommit to events! Anyhoo, that’s my mini rant. How have you all been? How’s the holiday season treating you so far? I feel like I’ve been MIA and completely disconnected with my blogging world that I’m making the utmost efforts to re-connect with you all again!

Today’s post features one of my favorite sweaters for the season which is a beautiful blush pink V neck sweater with a bow tie at the back! The material is lightweight yet so soft, and the back design is perfect for a sexy date night outfit during this sweater weather season. You can even wear a tank underneath if you want more layers. I decided to pair the outfit with these black ripped jeans and my go to booties and completed the overall look with these beautiful fringe earrings (just make sure that it doesn’t get hooked to your scarf or hat!).

I’m linking similar outfit details below:)

Happy Hump Day everyone!!! Hope you have a fantastic day! xoxo

Fashion- Oh Yellow there! Sweater with Scalloped Detail- Dynamite Clothing

Hello beauties!

Firstly, let me start off my apologizing for being MIA- my parents are in town and I’m been spending every minute of my free time with them (hence my lack of content!), and work has been extremely hectic (I recently went on a trip to California, so I’ll be sharing my travel post soon!).

Secondly, HAPPY FRIDAY to you all!!! I’m sure you all must have been yearning for the weekend, as have I! Friday feels got me feeling so jovial! And what better way to spread happiness than with this fun sweater with scalloped detail! The fit is true to size (I’m wearing a small), and paired with a pair of navy blue pants, this color POPS! It’s such a great color combination, and the scalloped edge at the bottom of the top gives such a unique element to the overall piece! Also- the fabric is super soft, and is PERFECT for these cold days (let me just take this moment to admit that sadly, fall weather is officially over, as Canada has experienced it’s first real snowfall for the season!). See below how I accessorized with beautiful gold dangling earrings- this sweater pairs beautifully with gold accessories, it really brings out the gold and yellow tones!

I’m linking where I got this must have sweater below, so if you’re interested, click the link below!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and stay warm friends! 🙂

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 🙂

And be sure to follow me on Instagram @livinglissy so you never miss a post!

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- 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
