One of the best things about fall approaching is the ability and ease of modifying an outfit. Dressing a look up or down becomes much easier! This look I’m wearing above, for example, started as a more business-casual look! Running in and out of meetings in the morning I wore a pair of heels and leather jacket. But as the day continued, going to the mall and out for dinner in that outfit wasn’t an option.
I decided to ditch the heels and opted out for my super low-cut Converses and traded the blazer for this baggy knit cardigan. Both were really simple and easy day looks. Minimal jewellery in both – never forget any metal watch makes a little statement on its own.
How do you dress your looks up and down?
Cardigan: Urban Plant, Grey Tank-Top: Ardene, Black Shirt: BCBG, Shoes, Converses
With the summer nights getting chiller and chiller, we’re stretching to wear everything in our wardrobe before packing them away and bringing out chunky sweaters and combat boots. But, there are three signature pieces you could add to your closet now to help make that transition into fall easier!
Baggy knit cardigan
We’ve been seeing them everywhere…these amazingly comfortable, oversized cardigans. The knit design is not only breathable but makes these the perfect sweaters to throw over any outfit. So maybe you’re wearing it over a pair of white shorts now, but in a few months you can swap those shorts for a pair of jeans or cotton dress, either way, you now have a versatile piece for both seasons.
Jeans are always a good idea, but a great pair of boyfriend jeans is essential for the seasonal switch into fall. The greatest thing about a pair of boyfriend jeans is being able to roll them up during the day and then bring them back to full length as the weather gets colder (it’s amazing how those few inches of exposed skin can make a difference in body temperature).

Been a while since I’ve written one of these, feeling a little rusty but all for good reason! Regardless if the posts stop the fashion doesn’t – check out my outfit from last night!
While sometimes my look is more edgy, most times it’s classic chic. Last night I wore these great pair of flared jeans with a white quitted t-shirt. I wasn’t in the mood for any chunky statement necklaces so I kept it light with this blue stone necklace. Finally finished the look with some pumps and my new favourite orange tote!
Let me just take the time to also say that I’m a huge believer in jeans being just about the best invention in the world! Their versatility and comfort level make them my go-to bottoms when creating any look!!
Get this look – Jeans: Abercrombie & Fitch, T-shirt: Reitmans, Heels: Le Chateau, Necklace: Unknown (gift from Syria), Tote: Payless for only $12!
I’m all for changing with the trends and even being a trendsetter, but I’m also one of those people who continue wearing something “out of fashion” if I still find ways to make them look fashionable!
The craze over skulls has definitely diminished, but the skull detailed scarf I wore last night is still one of my favourites and I have NO problem wearing it!
Here’s my look for yesterday,
I kept the look casual for the occasion but used yellow for a pop of colour! Rolled up my old jeans and throw on my converses for an extremely comfortable but fashion forward look! What do you guys think??
Grey Cardigan: Costa Blanca, Yellow tank-top: H&M, Jeans: Urban Behaviour, Scarf: Zara
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…
If 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.
With love always,

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.
Get this look… Blazer: Zara, Blouse: Vero Moda, Jeans: True Religion, Flats: Old Navy, Purse: Birkin, Glasses: Gucci, Single Pink Rose: For a very special friend!

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?
