sweatshirt: Wildfox / blouse: Filippa K / velvet jeans: AG Jeans / booties: Tory Burch / toque: Miss Sixty / bag: Rebecca Minkoff (from Revolve)

Another Monday is here to say hello and I’m kicking away the Monday Blues with this epic sweater from Wildfox.  “I need a drink” sums up Monday in a quote pretty well haha.  A coffee drink for me to be precise.  When you’re spending most of your day studying it’s nice to get out, go grab a coffee and get some fresh air as a break.  Outfit of choice for the mini outing: a sweatshirt with a crisp white blouse underneath.  Love the look of this combo.  Added some texture with these AG Jeans navy blue velvet pants and my grey velvet Rebecca Minkoff bag.  For a touch of cozy I topped it off with a slouchy Miss Sixty toque I’ve had for years.  Finished off the look with black flat booties, perfect for days when you don’t feel like wearing heels but want to wear something less casual than sneakers.  Poof!  Cute and cozy in a snap.  Time to get back to the books, babeskillets, Tita xx

Hello first post of 2018!  A couple weeks late but hey, I’ve been hitting the books hard.  Wanted to get a chunk of studying under my belt before I started posting more regularly this year (eek!).  On the docket for tonight: some cozy outfit inspiration.  A soft knit turtleneck like this is the perfect chilly day piece.  You can style it super casual like I did here, or easily dress it up with nice black jeans and heels.  Versatile and it feels like you’re wearing a blanket: jackpot.  I’ve been wearing it a ton this winter, too much probably haha.  Paired with my current fave Citizens of Humanity jeans and some white Steve Madden boots, this crisp color palette ideal for winter.  To finish off with some extra coziness, I added a pompom toque.  As you know, I’m a huge toque girl and I tried out the pompom life for the first time and haven’t looked back.  It’s just so cute haha.  The ideal coffee run or study session look that appears put together but is really just the equivalent of sweatpants and a hoodie comfort-wise.  Zing!  Also, if you’re on the hunt for a good place to grab a cup of coffee in Vancouver, Revolver in Gastown is a sweet little joint to check out!  Excellent lattes.  Time to power-down the laptop and go to sleep babeskillets, Tita xx

jumpsuit: Lulus (here) / fur coat: vintage (courtesy of g-mama) / heels: Christian Louboutin / bag: Gucci / bracelet: David Yurman

Before you dive into 2018, here’s the last look of the evening for you!  Find look #1 here and look #2 here.  I counted down to the New Year with three looks each featuring a piece from Lulus.  I saved my favorite for last and I hope you enjoyed this little pre-midnight (at least in my time zone haha) countdown.

Look #3: FIERCE

The final installment of the Life of Tita New Years Eve chronicles in upon us and I present you my favorite look.  This sleek jumpsuit is SO dope.  I love the wide leg, the flattering bum, the open back, and how it looks with the queens of all shoes: Loubs.  I had to whip out the vintage fur for this one, I felt like a heiress going to the opera.  This jumpsuit is so versatile, you could wear it to the office with a blazer then transition into higher heels for a date night.  I love it, the simple black color makes it a closet staple.  One-piece outfits are the best way to look put together while really not having to put much thought into it, perfect for a busy girl haha.  And how can you not feel glam in vintage fur?

That’s it that’s all folks!  It’s time to get the champagne out and toast to the end of another awesome year and the beginning of an even better one.  The last couple weeks were a whirlwind for me and the blog got neglected once again.  New Year’s resolution: get back on a regular posting schedule.  Get ready for lots of travel, fashion, and ski content coming your way.  In the meantime, keep up with my adventures and outfits on my Instagram (@titaszlachetka).  Thanks for following along my life via this blog, each and every one of you!  Chat next year babeskillets, Tita xx

New Years Eve Countdown: Look #2

dress: Lulus (here) / velvet blazer: Free People (here) / heels: Valentino / bag: Gucci / bracelet: Céline

Hello again, it’s time for another countdown look and this time it’s sparkles!  Check out look #1 here.  I’m sharing three party looks with you guys tonight, for all your fabulous soiree needs.  Each look features a piece from Lulus, and I still can’t decide which one is favorite haha.

Look #2: FLIRTY

If this doesn’t scream NYE party I don’t know what does!  Glitter isn’t only for New Years though, and you can rock this loose fitting mini for any glam occasion.  Perfect for a birthday celebration, too.  Love the gold-fishnet like pattern, low-key nautical…I shall have to wear this on a cruise one of these days haha.  Topped the dress off with a loose fitting velvet blazer to add a boyish touch and my fave strappy Valentino heels.  A classic black leather Gucci bag tops off the outfit as beautifully as Gucci always does.  Wearing glitter is just more fun.

Time to grab some champagne and toast to the new year soon, but first: one more look coming your way before 2018.  See you very very soon babeskillets, Tita xx

 

New Years Eve Countdown: Look #1

dress: Lulus (here) / boots: Jeffrey Campbell / coat: Allen Schwartz / bag: Rebecca Minkoff / bracelet: David Yurman

The new year is just around the corner and after a whirlwind Christmas season I’m counting down to New Years with you guys with three festive looks.  I’ll be dropping the remaining two looks in the coming hours, so that you can start 2018 off with some inspo for your next fab event.  Each look features a piece from Lulus, too (one of my fave online sites to shop on: great quality, awesome prices, and so much variety).

Look #1:  FESTIVE.

Look number one is festively velvet.  I wore this exact outfit to a Christmas dinner party this past week actually.  Love the rich velvet fabric and the navy blue is muy muy cold winter night vibes.  The high neck detail as well as the shoulder cut-outs give a unique touch to this body-con beauty.  Paired it with my never-fail black thigh high boots and a statement cheetah print coat for a punch of color.  Finally, a little velvet on velvet never hurt anyone, so this silvery Rebecca Minkoff bag finished off the look.

Hope everyone is enjoying the last day of the year, and look out for the next countdown look tonight!  Happy New Year’s Eve babeskillets, Tita xx

Holiday Shopping

Drinks at Nordstrom with mamabear ❤

Over the holidays me and my mom always try to go downtown together to casually Christmas shop and browse.  The shops are always so festive this time of year and it’s such a warm feeling doing this with my mom.  It’s something we’ve been doing since I was 15.  We stopped by the bar inside Nordstrom for some drinks a bite.  So cozy to do that and it’s nice to talk and spend time together when we’re both relaxed.  Hope everyone gets to enjoy some family time this holiday season, it’s more important than the gifts in my opinion.  I’ll be up late tonight burning the midnight oil and getting everything finished research-wise for tomorrow.  Currently drinking tea and not a martini.  How classy do martinis look, though?  This one was a little stronger than I wanted but between the two of us we sipped it slowly haha.  For those of you also going to be on the late night grind, have a productive night babeskillets, Tita xx

Velvet Nights

bodysuit: Lulus here / pants: Lulus here / shoes: Public Desire here / lace bralette: Wilfred from Aritzia / bag: Gucci / bracelet: David Yurman

It’s snowing in the city today!  I’m cozied up working from home and it feels so good to be surrounded by a mini winter wonderland.  Today is the final crush on my research project before the holiday break, and tomorrow I have a last meeting to review it all.  In addition, I’m putting the research on pause in the new year for a little while (which is great as it will allow more time for data to be collected which will enable me to finish the second half of the project).  Going to be hitting the medical books hard though…after the holidays.  Shall be a nerdy ol’ time.  The snow is really making it feel like Christmas (and so are the three Christmas trees in our house), so here’s a holiday inspired look with some pieces I got from Lulus.  I wore this to the rehearsal dinner of my friend’s wedding in New Orleans the other weekend and it was so fun to wear wide legged pants haha.  Swish swish!  Walked into this perfectly regal room and I immediately felt the urge to own many leather-bound books.  The venue was Antoine’s, a New Orleans restaurant dating back to 1840 and it sure felt that way inside.  So. cool.  Everything was extra beautiful with the holiday decor, too.  Anyway, on the outfit.  Hello velvet!  These velvet pants are so comfortable, I love the higher waist and the slits up the side.  Paired it with a sheer bodysuit and a lace bralette.  I’m a sucker for sheer fabrics with lace underneath and the added touch of velvet pants created a festive vibe to the look.  Sock-fit ankle boots with heels elevated both my height and outfit to a new level.  It was cool to not wear a dress yet still be fancy and girly.  I felt mucho sophisticado.  Moral of the story: if you want to feel regal, wear some flowy velvet pants.  Have a snowed in afternoon babeskillets, Tita xx
