3 ways to wear a denim top

Hi there! I want to start off by thanking you for visiting my site. You could be anywhere doing anything but you’re here with me and I really appreciate it. This post is different from what I usually do since I’ll be focusing on fashion, specifically a fashion item that can be worn stylishly in three different ways. The denim shirt.

Disclaimer: If you want to shop any of these looks, by all means, please follow me on liketoknow.it or click the link. Every purchase made on that site will provide me with a coin or two tossed my way. That of course is one of the ways you can support me and help me turn my hobby into a full-time paying gig.

Denim often gets a bad reputation for being the most casual fabric. In a way, it’s true. Denim has a way of just being able to channel the right amount of cool and swagger without appearing snobby. Denim is the friend that gets along with everybody

For starters, I want to set the record straight. In the spirit of honesty, I borrowed this denim shirt from my husband’s closet. He doesn’t know yet, and the plan is to keep it that way.

I fell in love with wearing my husband’s shirt when I was pregnant with my firstborn daughter. I gained quite a bit of weight and I was unprepared, so his closet offered me all the room I needed to grow but with the improper fit. Today, with the help of so many online stylist I know that I can cinch the shirt at the waist by tying a knot in the middle, it gives a false illusion of the hour glass figure. Also it looks like I’m dressing with a baggy shirt on top on purpose in a stylish way that looks cute.

I paired this shirt, with a strapless, sweetheart, knee length mint dress. The colour combinations screams youth and spring and rejuvenation and refreshing etc. In other words, it’s super cute and comfy and I look young.

Denim on demin:

This is my favourite look. I don’t have to worry about matching or whether or not it makes sense. Denim is universally cool. In order to avoid it looking too monochromatic, I made sure that the pant were a different of indigo. Otherwise, in my humble opinion it would be too boring.

Denim and the long skirt

It’s fall and for me it means that I’m not shaving my legs. In all honesty, I haven’t shaved my legs since I gave birth to my second daughter so I really don’t care. However, just because I don’t shave doesn’t mean I want others to see the state of my hairy legs. I mean I still care…not really.

I love long skirts. It’s like a blanket for my legs except there’s an opening at the bottom. I chose this grey lightweight ankle length skirt because in my opinion it makes my legs appear longer and taller…and because it’s like having a blanket around my legs.

Fall Outfits that you can find on my liketoknow.it

Hi there! I just want to start off by saying thank you so very much for check out my blog post. You could be doing anything right now, but here you are with me and I appreciate it so much. In case you didn’t know, I have participated in #NaBloPoMo challenge. This is where I write a blog post every day for a whole month. I’m not going to lie to you, it takes preparation and some sacrifice but the fact that you’re here makes it all worth it.

Disclaimer: This blog post does have affiliate links. If you so choose to click on these links and make a purchase I get a coin or two tossed into my wallet. Believe me, you will never pay more and in some cases you may even save some money. You see, it’s a win for the both of us.

I never saw myself as a fashionista, though I’ve always had an affinity for style and fashion, my lanky features and disproportionate hip to waist ratio made it really hard for me to ever find anything that I liked. Also factor in the fact that I absolutely trying clothing at a store, well the rest is history.

It’s crazy because my mother is a licensed fashion designer and my grandmother is one of the most gifted seamstresses I’ve ever known. So it makes sense that the affinity would be there but it wouldn’t be until recently reconcile my taste for fashion. Even though I use to watch shows like What Not To Wear and Fashion Television I was never really able to showcase my style. Also, I really love being comfortable.

Loungewear is my thing. I love loungewear. A good loungewear set needs to functional, cute, good fit and can be worn different ways. If I can’t see myself wearing sneakers and heels with it, then it’s not the set for me.

For example,

This tan Boohoo set can be worn differently when broken up.

I’ve worn this set in different ways since.

When I’m wearing errands I like to wear the pant with a neutral tank and a jacket to stay warm.
Pair the sweater with these faux leather pants and we’ve gone from stay at home to slay at home. Tuck in the sweater if you want to showcase that hourglass figure.
I love this belted ankle tapered pants. I also like that it gives my tummy a tucked feel and all I need is heels and I’m ready to close the deal of my imaginary multi-billion industry.

One should never feel trapped by an outfit but freed by the endless possibilities. You worked for that money and if you choose to spend it on clothing, it should spark joy whichever way you see fit to wear. Also, looking fabulous is an instant by-product of feeling your best.

For awhile we were told that joggers could only be worn a certain, well we’re not doing that anymore. Dress it up if you’re feeling fancy and dress it down if you’ve things to do. You get to choose the way joggers are to be perceived.

Last but not least is my favourite loungewear set, EVER!

Shop the look!

This set is the epitome of comfort at the highest level. This grey sweatpants and matching hoodie is the reason why women will leave their man’s hoodie alone…maybe. It is so comfortable and warm which is great for the fall winter season. It’s awesome if you want to binge or get work or travel. It makes for the perfect gift.

top 3 benefits of online shopping

Hi there! I want to start off by saying thank you for checking out my blog. You could be reading anything and yet here you are hanging out with me. Maybe you need ammunition to justify a recent splurge or maybe you just want to read up on online shopping. I don’t know but either way I’m grateful you are here.

FYI: There are some links in this blog that if you so happen to click on it and/or use their services not only will you get to save money but you also help me out financially. There’s no pressure but if you want to put some butterflies in my belly…putting a little coin in my purse never did hurt anyone.

Ok, let’s get started.

I personally am that person that absolutely hates, and I mean HATE shopping. I do not believe in retail therapy. The very idea of walking into a store and having to sort through the aisle looking for a product that I have in mind that may or may not exist fills me with angst and anxiety. I absolutely hate going through the racks of the clothes just to pick out something that looks somewhat decent at an adequate price point, then to go to the fitting rooms that barely fit me and my oversized winter jackets. Followed by the act of shamelessly trying on the outfit just to be met with utter disappointment of the mediocrity that is on my body, just makes me feel like…ugh! Yes, I am that girl. I don’t do shopping sprees. But from the comfort of my home, in a judge free zone, without any pushy sales person trying to be my friend so she can make a sale…well all bets are off.

It can be done at home

Nowadays, you can shop for anything from the comfort of your home. You can check out a website or download an app on your phone, link your financial information and get what you need with the knowledge that you will receive your item in a few moments. Depending on where you order from or what you order you can receive your beloved quite quickly. It’s like getting a gift in the mail every time. You don’t have to turn it into an event unless you want to.

You could be lying in bed in three day old pajamas and no one will care. Did you shower? Does it matter? No and no. Are your kids screaming at the top of their lungs because they are pretending to be pirates on the hunt for a hidden treasure? Does it even matter? No! You’re not bothering anyone. You are home. You are safe.

You could be lying in bed in three day old pajamas and no one will care. Did you shower? Does it matter? No and no. Are your kids screaming at the top of their lungs because they are pretending to be pirates on the hunt for a hidden treasure? Does it even matter? No! You’re not bothering anyone. You are home. You are safe.

Also think about how much you are doing by staying home. There’s a pandemic going on and you’re doing your part by maintaining more than six foot distance. Personally, it’s my favourite form of social distancing. But then again I’m an introvert and a mother with a pretty good imagination. That’s a recipe for my anxiety to reach abnormally high levels for absolutely no reason.

Also, not only are you saving your gas but you are also reducing pollutants. You are doing your part in the environment for the environment. We’ll also not include the way the packages get to your house for the sake of “we’re doing our part by saving the environment!” argument, ok? Thanks.

Store hours, what store hours?

Unless you are ordering groceries, there is no such thing as a closing time. All the online shops remain open for those moments you feel inspired. Let me give you an example.

You may see this outfit on your feed and feel inspired to get your very own #aeriereal grey loungewear that make you feel like the heavens opened up and God, Himself, hugged you in His sweet fluffy and comforting goodness. I’m just saying…

Lucky for you can get this look by clicking on my liketoknow.it link and get your very own grey sweat pants and matching hoodie for yourself and/or your loved one. I mean at this point, if your man really wanted you to stop wearing his hoodie he would just get you this set and all would be well. I’m just saying.

You can shop any look, any time and not worry about anything anybody has to say. Feel like having a shopping spree at three in the morning? Go for it!

Easier to save money

When it comes to shopping I always feel better knowing that I can save money without digging for a cut up coupon stuck deep in my wallet under the pile of receipts I’ve collected. I love using promo codes and discount codes. Even cash back app are a great way to save money. A lot of the times your favourite influencer, including myself, get really great discount codes in hopes to drive traffic to retailers and do you know what we do with them? We share them.

With the holidays we’re all looking to score a sweet deal. I know that Sephora will soon be having their winter sale and what better time it is not just to save money but to put some money back into your pocket. I use Ampli which is a cash back app. This means that when you make a purchase you actually get some money back. The great thing is you can use at so many stores that you don’t have to wait until you are splurging to get cash back. And you don’t have to wait until you reach a super high amount to cash out. It’s available in Canada and the US, so if you so chose to sign up click here and use the promo coded AMPLI5 to get $5 once you finish signing up.

If you want to get your personalized vitamin order, I’ve got a code for that. Persona does that and all you have to do is take a 5 minute assessment quiz. Not only do you get your vitamins delivered to you every month, but it has your name on it so you know it’s yours. All you have to do is click here and use the promo code SANDY50 to save %50 on your first order.

So you see? It’s quite easy to save when shopping online. You save money. You save time and you save yourself the fatigue of having to pack two tiny humans in a car while forcing them to behave in a place that you just don’t want to be in…or maybe that’s just me.

Let me hear you. Why do you love online shopping?
