#Inspiration-April 2017

80. #InspirationApr

I didn’t get to do an #InspirationMonth in March, like I’ve said before life’s been pretty busy, but I did one for this month and I get to share a few pics of my new room.

  1. Closet Organizer

So I actually have a proper closet organizer with drawers and shelves and everything I own basically fits in this closet right now, no extra book shelf or dresser. The minimalist in me is quite happy.

Spring Outfit Ideas, Black Jeans 3 Ways

79. Spring Outfits

I know its spring, and it should be approaching summer where I am, but alas Canadian weather remains unpredictable. However that is not going to stop me from pulling out my spring clothing and playing around with some outfit ideas.

I have some go-to looks that I love, but I’ve paired down my wardrobe enough that I can mix and match almost everything. My favourite and probably most versatile piece in my wardrobe are my black high-waist jeans from Dynamite, far from sustainable yes, but they fit and with me that’s all that counts sometimes.

Outfit #1

15 Question Style Tag

78. Style Tag.jpg

More Fashion and Style posts, so here’s a 15 question Style tag.

  1. I love to shop for my clothes at (give three stores)?
  • Dynamite
  • Everlane
  • RW and Co
  1. Store you like to visit, but don’t usually buy from?

Urban Outfitters, my sister loves to shop here, and while I like the store I rarely find anything I truly like.

  1. Last accessory you bought?

It was a necklace from Ardene, but I hardly wear it. It is blue and gold and is a statement necklace with metal feathers, but I think I need jewelry that’s not so bulky.

  1. Do you own something you’ve never worn? What?

No, not since I switched to a minimal wardrobe.

  1. I put a lot of thought into what I wear, throw my clothes on quickly, or just like to be comfortable?

A Minimal Wardrobe: 3 Reasons Why I Love it

77. Minimal Wardrobe Reasons.jpg

For the next few weeks I’m going to focus on Fashion and Style and this week I’m starting with my minimal wardrobe, specifically reasons I love my minimal wardrobe.

So here goes…

Reason #1

Actually having a defined style. I spent so many years never having anything to wear, or so it seemed. I was really just buying clothing that appealed to me, but wasn’t really my style. So I’d pick up a top and love the colour or the pattern, make sure it was my size, maybe try it on and then I’d wear it a few times only because I never really thought about what would match it. I’d buy clothing pieces, instead of thinking in terms of outfits. Now however, I have keep a neutral colour palette with a few added colours that I like and know look good on me, and I go for comfort and styles that I know work instead of just what appeals to me when I go shopping.

Daredevil S1: Review

Time for a TV Show Review! There may be a few spoilers, just forewarning you.

Synopsis: Matt Murdock, with his other senses superhumanly enhanced, fights crime as a blind lawyer by day, and vigilante by night. Synopsis was found here: imdb.com

Now that I’m finished my course, and have had some spare time I started watching Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix and let me tell you it is pretty awesome.

I’ve watched the first season, and there are a few reasons why I fell in love with this show.

Firstly, Daredevil while being your typical hero, fight for the greater good, and save as many people as you can kind of thing, Matt Murdock is also blind. His other four senses have amplified allowing him to see most things as well as anyone else, but from an equality point of view it’s a big step in the Movie world to include individuals with disabilities, (e.g. The Hunger Games Trilogy and there movie adaption’s, Katniss was supposed to be partially deaf in the second movie and Peeta had his foot amputated, and neither happened), so props to creating a character, and representing that character, and their disability accurately on screen.
