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- 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- 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- 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
