Chunky Knits

The cold is definitely here, so enter the oversize, chunky sweaters. A fall/winter staple for anyone who has to endure the ever-so-cold temperatures of 10 degrees and lower.

Chunky knits are definitely something I need (or want, however you look at it) that I need to stock up on this fall/winter. They’re a great investment, and look great paired with almost anything in your wardrobe. Skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, skirts, dresses, the list goes on and on. I also love that because of the wide array of textures and fabrics chunky sweaters come in, they can be dressed up or down depending on your mood or occasion.

Thoughts on chunky knits? Do you own a few, or are shopping for a few? Here are several styles that fit the perfect chunky sweater category.

Stay classy, Realists!

Graphic Tees

Looking for a new way to spice up your outfits this summer/fall? Something to replace a basic tee? Why not try out one of the hottest trends out there right now; graphic t-shirts. They’re literally popping up everywhere so don’t tell me you don’t know what I’m talking about ;)

We’ve got designers on end putting out their version of the perfect graphic tee. Comme Des Garcons, Maison Martin Margiela, and Burberry, to name a few, have all taken on this course of putting out some fine graphic prints. From shirts with writing, to animals, to just overall crazy prints, whatever you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it. If not, don’t worry, there are plenty of either online shops or pop-up stores that you can print on your own graphics. I for one am all down for this trend. As much as I love a plain tee, ones with pictures or writing always have a way of making your outfit that much more interesting. I love that you can take something so simple like an animal print tee, and make it look perfect and not childish (Aimee from songofstyle does it perfect here!). 

How do you feel about this trend? Have you already jumped on board, or are you still looking into it? I’m definitely planning on getting out there and looking for a few myself. Although, I should really just go through my own closet first because I know for a fact I’ve got a few awesome ones lying around. I’ll make sure to dig them up and do some posts on them! Until then, here are a few styles I’ve chosen that I think would fit perfectly in my closet.

Have a wonderful rest of your Friday, Realists, a beautiful weekend, and stay classy!

Denim Shorts

Hello Realists!! Excuse me for my 3-day weekend. Yesterday was a holiday for most here in Montreal, as it was St. Jean Baptiste, so I took advantage of the beautiful weather we had earlier in the day (luckily I made it home before the thunder-showers began) and enjoyed a nice picnic with my girls, sister and uncle.

It’s so nice to wake up in the morning and not have to leave with a sweater on. I can finally stash away all of our winter clothing and make more room for dresses and shorts ;) Speaking of shorts, as I’ve mentioned in a post here, they’re really my go to item for the hot weather. So, seeing as how denim shorts are being seen all over this summer, I’ve put together a little collage of a few shorts I wouldn’t mind adding to my collection.

The great thing about denim shorts is that they can easily be dressed up or down, depending on the event. A killer pair of heels and a dressy top, or some Converse and a muscle tee, they’re so versatile that everyone should own at least one pair! Another great thing about denim shorts? They don’t always have to be the typical blue. Branch out and go shopping for some fun, colorful denim!

How do you feel about denim shorts? Or shorts in general? You know me, I do love to hear your thoughts! Hope you all had a lovely weekend and Monday. Stay Classy!

Denim Shorts

Flatforms; Yes or No?

There’s a shoe trend going on right now as I’m writing this post that I’m not sure how I feel about. Flatforms. A one-height wedged shoe. Not sure if love it or hate it. Wedges, yes. Heels with a platform, definitely yes. Flatforms?? I’m still on the edge about them. Personally, I need a little arch on my shoes. Sexier looking? I would like to think so. More comfortable? I think my shoes with platforms are extremely comfortable, and I’m sure flatforms are as well. I just…I just don’t know.

As I was searching for some different styles, I did come across a few that I thought were cute. I put together a collage of flatforms trying to find the ones that I liked the most, but I’m not guaranteeing that they’re all to my flavour.

What are your takes on flatforms? Do you go running to them, or away from them? I am always eager to hear what you guys think, so don’t be shy and let me know! :) Stay classy, realists!
