Hi Fall!

Fall is my favourite. Brisk temperatures (hopefully), colourful leaves, and best of all amazing fashion on the way. There’s nothing better than a chunky sweater on a cool fall day layered over anything. We’re not there yet, but as soon as fall hits my colour palette changes back to black and jewel tones. Yeah! Statement jeans are a must these days and these called to me from a sale rack at Anthropologie. The blouse isn’t new (the horror) but it’s one of my favourites from the colours to the sleeves and it goes so perfectly with the Gucci drivers. Can’t wait for the thermometer to tell me to wear a pair of boots! Enjoy!

Slip dresses are a thing right now and I love it. They’re so silky and comfy. Like wearing your nightgown out on the town. The shimmery gold was just irresistible as was the strappy back. I’m still such a Free People fanatic! They technically call this a slip but I put a slip underneath so it wasn’t see through and voila — it’s a dress. I know the “naked dress” is all over right now but, um…. TMI. Add some cool shoes and accessories and there ya have it. Fun(ky) dinner outfit. And for someone I know who says cars are fashion, here you go. Enjoy!

Pyjama dressing has become a thing of late and I’m kinda loving it. What could be better than being able to wear pjs out of the house? Styling something silky or fancy with ripped jeans has always appealed and it’s much more interesting than going all one way or the other. It was hot so I used the pyjama shirt as my jacket for the evening in case it got chilly. In the restaurant, however, it was cami all the way! Camisoles are so versatile. Wear them with a shrunken tee under if you want to be less revealing, on their own for a night out, or with a cardigan, blazer or shirt over for warmth or style. You can dress them up or down for day or night. Everyone should own one! Oh… I can’t stop wearing these shoes! I swear I own more than one pair!

Cheap Trick

Sometimes it’s just too hot to wear clothes. Let the hibernation begin. See ya in October! OK. So I have to leave the house at some point but what to wear? Little dresses that don’t touch me. Being that I’m not a fan of summer heat, in case you couldn’t tell, I’m not into spending tons of money on my hot weather wardrobe. This dress is from Forever 21 and though I don’t shop there often, sometimes for an easy summer number it works. The trick to shopping at inexpensive places like that? No brights or pastels. Black and white and some other dark colours will always look more expensive. Pairing your budget friendly outfit with a nice pair of shoes, some cool jewellery and an awesome pair of sunglasses will elevate the look and make you feel like a million bucks. Give it a shot!

Puffy Shirt

Remember the Puffy Shirt episode? Of course you do! With statement sleeves and ruffles being all the rage it pops into my head all too often. Hope I pulled it off better than Seinfeld!

I found this blouse on super sale at Anthropologie last week. It’s so airy that even inside for dinner I wasn’t crazy hot. Phew. I usually am. I briefly toyed with the idea of not wearing a tank top underneath. Think I could pull it off? I’m a wimp sometimes when it comes to showing too much skin. Not sure why. Pairing something so feminine and flirty with ripped up jeans is so much fun. There’s something about that combo that has always appealed to me. I’m not into fussy prim and proper. I like a little edginess to my outfits. BTW… you’ll be seeing these shoes a lot. They’re trendy and pretty and so comfortable! Oh… we just planted our garden. Nice huh?

She’s Back!

To blog or not to blog? The answer is…. to blog. I realized during my absence/struggle that it truly is something I enjoy. Not to any particular end, but just to share and hopefully inspire. My obsession for all things fashion and style needs an outlet. I myself love to troll other people’s blogs and read all the fashion sites looking for inspiration and fresh finds. I had it in my head for so long that I had to be “blog worthy” every day. Way too much pressure. Even the most fashionable people out there wear things twice and find themselves in the comfort of sweats. Why can’t I? I can and will. I may even share some of those moments! While my daily life doesn’t allow for a post a day, I’m hoping to post once or twice a week. Sorry for being gone so long! Enjoy!

So this is one of my (hopefully) blog worthy outfits. Figured I should at least come back with one. I was going for an NYC appropriate look for our anniversary dinner. Yes. A dress over pants is a thing. Let me know how I did!

Casual Transition

Is it true? Is fall really around the corner? Am I the only one looking forward to rich hues and cozy wraps? I certainly hope not. While I wish it was actually a cool enough evening to need this wrap it so wasn’t. I still have a hard time posting “normal” casual outfits. Real people wear tanks and jeans though so why not? My latest saga? Fibromyalgia. I’m in pain and there’s no way I can even think about a heel or a wedge or anything of the sort right now. If you have to wear flats they may as well be Gucci right? The drivers are so comfortable and soft. Highly recommend!
