Ever since I've gone back to university the weather really hasn't allowed me to do any outfit posts. It's either freezing and the wind knocks over my tripod or some other excuse. I cannot wait for this terrible weather to go away. In other news I've really been focusing on my internship with College Fashionista. In case y'all forgot, I am a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista and I post men's street style on my page.

This internship has really brought out the worst in me, in good ways of course. My stalking skills have gotten spectacularly better. Nancy Drew would be so proud. I also find myself ditching my friends and doing 360's to catch someone's outfit before they hurry and run away from me forever. For instance, I've been stalking this guy since I first spotted him on Tuesday while I was walking to my public speaking class. I was rushing so I wouldn't be late but then out of nowhere BOOM! There he was! All in black with a Givenchy Rottweiler tote bag. I am obsessed with this guys edgy casual style.

There's something about black and white chevron that just really gets me. 

When I saw LeTote had this chevron blazer, I knew I had to have it. Black and white chevron, so simple. Today was a really great day. I went to my favourite salon, Paisley & Stripe, and saw my favourite stylist Alex. I haven't seen Alex since August, so it was fun to catch up and remake my look. I know my hair doesn't look all that different, trust me do I know, but it feels different to me. I wanted a sleeker, smoother, and ultimately healthier look. Of course Alex always knocks my hair out of the park. Going to the hair salon is always one of my favourite things to do, and with only a week left of vacation I'm filling it up with things I love. To make my day even better I got to get coffee with my favourite French teacher from high school and some very good friends. This blazer is so fun and much more versatile than I initially expected though it also looks just like my duvet cover in my dorm. I liked pairing it with a simple band t-shirt rather than a dressy blouse. Gives more of a punk rock feel to me which is always what I'm going for.

I am wearing: Lidia Zig Blazer c/o LeTote, The Hawks & The Found shirt, black jeans from Pac-Sun, shoes from Love Culture, wrap bracelet from Stella & Dot, Black Gold Gear Bracelet c/o LeTote.

2014 is here, and I am so excited to be back in action! Remember when I told y'all that I have a really bad obsession with Parks & Recreation? Well if you never knew, I am huge fan of Aziz Ansari which can be a terrible thing. I managed to watch 99 episodes within 3 weeks (all six seasons). Scary. My favorite character has to be Aziz's character Tom Haverford, and a close second his ex-business partner Jean Ralphio. Tom is always coming up with strange high end business ventures, but his best  has to be his store called Rent-A-Swag. Essentially, he sells his very high end clothes to middle schoolers, and teenagers who can rent the clothes for a short amount of time or for special occasions. Pretty much Rent the Runway for middle school boys. 

Turns out there is something similar in real life too! Go Tom! I found about LeTote recently, when a blogger I really admire, Sharena, from Fashion of a Novice posted a few outfits with items from their site. I decided to check them out and do some investigating. LeTote uses the tag, "Netflix for clothes", and that is essentially what it is. I got a boutique box c/o LeTote. Which is $49 a month, it comes with 3 garments, and 2 accsessories. ($200+ value!) To sweeten the deal up even  more you pick out of a giant selection of clothes you like, and stylists select out of your closet! What else? You can return the garments or keep them as quickly or long as you'd like!  You can also purchase any piece for a cheaper rate if you don't want to part with it! Oh, and return shipping is free! I love Letote, I never have to wear the same thing twice!

It was freezing outside today, but still I had way too much fun in the snow! I am wearing a sweater from Hollister, leather jacket from Aero, UK Tower Bridge Skirt c/o LeTote, wedges from Target, and Majestic Crystal Necklace c/o LeTote
