{Featured} in Cosmo India!

white staple shirt multiple ways

{Styled by} Prabh
{Photographed by} Tript

First off we are extremely sorry for the lack of posts on here recently. Being down with the cold, papers, assignments, exams, and prom dressing shopping is just some of the excuses we have for being MIA on the blog. 

But we are sooooo excited to share with our readers this amazing feature we've been working on and dying to share with you all! We were recently approached by COSMOPOLITAN - India magazine to do a feature.  The idea behind the feature was to choose a staple piece and style it in multiple ways.  Prabh chose to style a white collared shirt, which is a must have basic in anyone's closet. You can see in the spread the different ways she styled it, from casual to a night out, a white collared shirt can be so versatile. 
We were so honoured to be featured in such a popular magazine and had so much fun doing this project! For our Indian readers, don't forget to pick up this March Issue of Cosmo India!

{Remix} I wore this scarf in last week's blog post: Statement Scarf


So it's the return of the statement scarf that I shared with you all last week here. I just love this scarf so much and so it makes another appearance on this blog! This time I chose to pair it with my favourite purchase this winter, this Joe Fresh maroon sweater. I've been down with the cold this week and have been catching up with some TV shows finally!

 Here are some shows that I've been watching:

3 ways to do leopard print



leopard mix

LOOK 1: SMART HIPSTER
Smart hipster

In the blog post: The Leopard Touch I talked about how leopard screamed Fran Drescher from the Nanny to me and I wanted to work with the print to make it comfortable for me to wear. Thats where this look, the smart hipster, came in to being. I think it helps sub-due the leopard print and the pop-of-colour adds to it and in the end, I think its a smart looking outfit!

LOOK 2: SCHOOL DAY CASUAL

School day casual

Well, I know that I would wear anyone of these 3 outfits to school on any given day but I also know that not everyone has the energy nor motivation to wear looks 1 and 2 especially when everything feels like its due and crumbling around you. So this look in the blog post: Style inspiration: Deepika Padukone's Cocktail, is what I think would be perfect on any given day or time of a semester of school. Its both causal and easy to wear and above all its as effortless as it looks!

LOOK 3: PREPPY DAY OUT

jewellery details 
 I remember when the leopard trend first arose couple of years ago I was hesitant to pick it up and not only that I made it clear that wearing gold and leopard made me think of a time in the 80s that I would have liked to forget. But, then I learned that its all about how you put things together. In this blog post: Of all the golden animals I tried to create an outfit that worked prints on prints and gold on leopard and I feel I came up with a preppy look that encompassed the leopard print (which, before this post, I thought was near impossible!)

Although the rest of Canada is experiencing snow storms, we are experiencing a nice warm winter, temperature being on average 4-6 degrees Celsius  It never really gets as cold as the rest of Canada here on the west coast, but this is definitely one of the warmer winters as of late. I do miss wearing my chunky knit scarfs over my chunky knit sweaters. I purchased this bright coloured warm wool scarf from our road trip to portland over the summer. It's super warm and cozy and a fun way to brighten up a outfit in the winter!

speaking of winter and winter accessories, don't forget to head over to our Count To Four Etsy Shop for some cute knitted accessories to add to your winter wardrobe! >>>> www.counttofour.etsy.com

I've also put together a collection of bright and fun scarves that will liven up your winter outfit:
