pre fall 

As soon as retailers begin getting in their fall merchandise and blowing out the warm weather clothes, I realize my favourite season is already halfway done. This year it even seems like summer is over before it started, but that does mean a killer set of pre-fall outfits to enjoy. The silk slip dress will […]

leather pants 

Leather pants are one of those surprise staples you never know you need until you try. I wear them 10x more than I wear regular leggings, because they are just as easy but make me feel hot instead of lazy. They are best with cozy sweaters, but can be dressed up for work with a […]

the cold shoulder 

         I have quite the collection of oversized or thick sweaters which I love to wear, but can’t fit comfortably under jackets. That’s a must for this time of year, when even a warm knit is not good enough on its own to stand up to the temperatures we’ve been having. Lucky for […]

greyscale 

            Some of my favourite looks are totally devoid of colour like this one. Grey and black are just so easy to pull together and if you do it right with unexpected textures or details you can sill stand out without any bold hues. These grey boots are probably the best example […]

playing with textures

      Three of my favourite textures to work with this fall are suede, denim and leather. The combination of soft suede, tough leather and rugged denim gives a nice variety to this look and is a tie in for a few major things we’ve been seeing for fall. Suede has been everywhere the past […]

canadiana 

                  Some days it’s good to just be cozy and warm. Those are days for flannel shirts, silky jersey tops and jeans with a lot of stretch in them. Put on some sunglasses to cover those tired eyes and go!  I love a good plaid and this one has been kicking around […]

well-loved autumn classics 

      As much as I love shopping for a new season (who doesn’t!) it’s even more rewarding to have collected some favourite pieces I’ve been wearing for years. Knowing I have some oldies but goodies I can’t wait to dig out of the closet once the weather turns reminds me that there is more […]
