Nothing Short of Chic: November 2016


Personal Style: Candy Corn – Post #100

In honour of 100 posts' worth of NSOC, here's some more outfit inspiration for you! | Nothing Short Of Chic
Thank you so much for supporting me through all 100 posts (and everything else we've been through together).

Guten Tag, alles! This is (drum roll please) my 100th post on Nothing Short Of Chic! I figured that, since this is, after all, a personal style blog, I'd post an outfit for you to get inspired by in honour of 2 years, 7 months, a handful of videos, and 100 posts' worth of NSOC.

It's really, truly winter, and it's kind of acceptable to even kick off the holiday season now that American Thanksgiving is over. Which means thick boots, heavy coats, and warm gloves. Unless you're me, and you don't even bother going outside, in which case you can wear whatever you want. Case in point: this cute, candy corn-inspired outfit. If your weather is still autumnal, take a cue from yours truly and wear orange, black, and brown for a fun, seasonal look.


Some Thoughts On Importance And Mattering

Some thoughts, questions, and answers following an emotional, eye-opening week. | Nothing Short Of Chic

The last week has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for me, for a myriad of reasons. I've gotten frustrated at people I've never met on social media for posting pictures of their lunch or their shoes when there are much more important issues in the world, and I've wanted to indulge in entertainment and imagery as a way of escape – both of these simultaneously (I love that word). Mostly, though, I've been taking a break from social media because it does not feel worth it. It's not real. I post a photograph of my outfit on Instagram – but to what end? There are people literally starving in this world and I think that my ensemble du jour is worth something?
