While we’ve all heard to amazing news of a collaboration between H&M and Alexander Wang… some preview pictures have leaked!!

The collection which is expected to be released on November 6th of this year, features items as a yoga mat, boxing glove keychains and a gym bag – we can assume that Wang is continuing to add to his line of sportswear chic fashion.

OOTD: Hello Spring!

Warm weather is finally here and I couldn’t be happier. The dreadfully long winter here in Toronto has come to an end and it’s beginning to feel a lot like spring.

Last weekend I switched between seasonal wardrobes (never enough closet space for everything all year long) and dug up my spring/summer clothes. Needless to say, I NEED to go shopping for a few key essential pieces to add to my closet for this season but I’m so glad to finally be wearing bright colours, like I did yesterday. Check it out…

IMG_9171If you haven’t put two and two together, I love colour-blocking and gold accents! The whole green and pink combo might just be one of my favourites, I feel like they always look so classy together.

And maybe I haven’t gotten the memo about whether gold chain necklaces are in or out, but as long as I can find a chic outfit that works with it, I will continue wearing them; I love how quickly a thick gold chained necklace heightens a look overall.

OOTD: Chic and Proper

Sometimes it’s nice to forget the current “trends” and just wear something that speaks to you. While the craze for sportswear is continuously growing in the fashion world, I’ve decided to give it a rest for a bit and get back to some basics.

The important thing to remember with an outfit like this, is to focus on the details. I added some great silver rings and earrings to complete the look.

Nothing welcomes Spring better than a great blazer and a nude hand-bag. Keeping in tuned with the current popular colour we’ve been seeing on the runways of Toronto Fashion Week, I finished the look off with great pink flats.

OOTD: Big Hoops and Designer Track Pants…The 90s Baby!

My look was totally picked out with my 90s blood in mind. I’ve been attached to my big silver hoops and will make an effort to solely bring them back!!

I decided to wear this shiny green sweater with these awesome Vero Moda leather tie-up pants!

I finished the look off with my black booties and leather coat… and of course my huge silver hoops (very J.lo/Lana Del Rey)

The perfect combination for this simple fashionista! What do you think?

OOTD: Houndstooth and Mustard Yellow

Nothing beats the feeling of taking off the tags on a new purchase and wearing it for the first time. I got the chance to do that twice with today’s outfit.

I’ve always loved the preppy look  of houndstooth print and how beautifully chic the mustard yellow cardigan makes the entire outfit look. And even though Pantone named radiant orchid as colour of the year for 2014, I’d still pick this cardigan from Banana Republic to compliment this look.

Thanks to the gold-buttons on the cardigan and gold buckets on my boots, this look didn’t need much accessories.. so I kept it simple and just threw on my big chain necklace from Aldo.

A little faux never hurt no body… and this fur vest from Forever 21 is def a winter season must-have. I decided to keep the colour tone calm to match the beige fur with this sheer Tiffany blue blouse and dark wash jeans. Paired it off with two-tone beige heels and of course…
