Grainin’ on that wood. Gra-grainin’ on that wood.
More like SNOWboard.
How about that snow huh?

Anyway. Who says you can’t wear short skirts in the winter (or at work)? Black opaque tights my friends. OPAQUE is the word of the day. Opaque can keep you from lookin’ like one big ratchet hoe. Opaque keeps things sexy + classy at the same time. Opaque, makes shorts and skirts acceptable in the work place. Opaque, is your winter friend.
This number is my favourite to wear to work, and really brightens up those dull winter snow days. A little bit of layering (with black OPAQUE tights) goes a long way.

Stay warm cool cats!

down to earth.

What? Wait. What do you mean it’s November?

Is anybody still out there? I went bananas on another hiatus full of weddings, events, birthdays and life in general, so I apologize for my absence and I THANK YOU for still reading this! <3
Fall is my 2nd favourite season (next to summer) full of layers, chunky sweaters, scarves and toights. Yeah, I said toights.  Options start to get a little nutty and I take just a little longer getting ready because of that.
Also. Who doesn’t love an earth tone palette? Fall colours are so rich and beautiful, you can really extend your wardrobe, and play mix and match with warm shades vs. cool tones.

I love, love love, these Jeffery Campbell oxford cut out flats. They are the cutest in the summer and sophisticated in the fall. I just can’t handle how amazing they are. One of my most favourite pairs of shoes ever.

What are your favourite fall items?

WHAT? I looked the other way for just a few minutes. I turn back and summer is done. DONE.
Oh wait. It’s coming back for a few days. What the hell, weather. Stop toying with dem.

I’ve been very inspired by NYFW this week, and very sad at the fact I’ll probably never get to go. Not to fret! I’m bringing this inspiration to these quiet suburban streets and….the office. Hooray.
Mixing prints and textures and un-like things together (a.k.a clashing!) is my favourite way to pair outfits, and you would be surprised at how you would re-discover your closet if you weren’t so hung up on being so matchy-matchy!
I was aiming for something avant-garde with this look – but it came across as more a grungy ballerina, which I will totally accept. I had a lot of fun with this look, the plaid shirt toughens it up. Just the right amount of balance between edgy and pretty.

Statement necklaces, you are the bomb dig on any friggen outfit. I love you.

Having just one piece of neon really makes any outfit snap, crackle, POP!
I am all about that relaxed look life. Thank the Lord for boyfriend jeans, a.k.a buffet jeans. Isn’t it funny how sexy these loose-ass jeans look with a pair of heels? Or is it just me? Love it.
Who needs a boyfriend when you got a great pair of boyfriend jeans that you can dress up for a night out, or dress down to run some sweaty, dirty errands in? Certainly not I ;). They’ve become an essential staple in my closet, and they go with anything, I swear! If you don’t believe, me I’ll try and post more looks with my bf jeans, which I snagged from Zara. I just love them so much.
Wore this to a drink date with my lovely songbird Laa, who was also the beautiful face behind the lens for my photos.

I was at the Taste of the Danforth this weekend and it always blows my mind when I see ladies rocking high heels at mega maximum walking events. Do you ever wonder that? How do ya’ll do it? Even at theme parks or carnivals I see it. I can’t even survive a wedding reception without bringing a pair of flats with me. You ladies got some cray feet…or..I got some cray feet.

Also, this post is dedicated to my one and only, De La Renta. Yes. I’m talking to you, Shortstack. <3
