Hello lovelies! Today I have another edition of Fashion Friday, featuring a bit of a throwback. I had so much fun with my previous try-on post, so I thought it would be really fun to do a similar post, but this time trying on my old prom dresses!
I actually went to prom three times — my own, with one of my best friends, & then to my high school boyfriends. & each time, I wore a completely different dress in a completely different style! I was never a huge fan of the traditional princess-y prom dress, so I’ve never worn one. It’s just not my style.
As you can see from the background of my nail art pictures today, it’s Winterland here in Halifax! But on my nails, it’s totally Spring. Today is prompt #3 for GlamNailsChallengeFeb, & it is Roses! & as you know, if you’ve been around the blog a while, roses are one of my favourite things to paint on my nails!
This time I decided to go with a vintage inspired rose look. Usually I tend to go for a more realistic looking floral, but I wanted to try something different!
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle
Top Coat: Essie Good to Go
Matte Top Coat : Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat
How pretty did these roses turn out with the black accents. It gives them almost a sketched effect, which I really like. It reminds me a bit of a manicure I did a few years back, obviously with a different colour scheme (& a bit more nail art practice!)
This is my first time wearing this Essence shade in a manicure, I think. I really like the blue background against the brightness of the pink roses. I really think this is a super cute design, both for Valentine’s Day, & Spring in general.
Yep, already dreaming of Spring. Winter can be over now!
What do you think of this rose design for #GlamNailsChallengeFeb? Are these giving you Valentine’s Day feels? Would you wear this look for a Valentine’s Day date?

Hello lovelies & happy Friday. It’s been a while since I posted a OOTD post, so I thought it would be fun to share a new outfit post!
Recently, I’ve been going through my closet rediscovering old clothing all over again. I have the worst habit of wearing the same favourites over & over again, so I’ve been making an effort to grab shirts I haven’t worn in a long time. & today’s look is featuring a very old shirt I’ve had since my university days, & was actually my Mom’s in the 80s!
Jeans: Ardene High Waisted Flare Cut ( Similar ones from the Gap here)
Not even lying, slipping into this shirt was a serious trip back to my University years (click here to see baby Shannon rocking this shirt circa 2009). This shirt used to be one of my go to shirts during those years, & I feel like I haven’t worn it nearly enough in the last 10ish years. The shirt was actually found deep in my Mom’s old clothing stash, & I think technically it was a PJ shirt. But I think it makes the most boho blouse ever, & it’s so much fun to wear!
& I think pairing it was my favourite flare jeans & gladiator sandals really completes the look. Also I’m glad flare jeans are making a comeback, because man I love them so much. They’re definitely my favourite jean style!
What do you think about this look? What item of clothing from your closet have you not grabbed in a while? Let me know in the comments! I
definitely encourage you to grab that shirt/dress/whatever from the recesses of your closet & give it a spin! It’s fun talking a trip down outfits past for sure!
