I am in the market for a new Winter jacket this season. I don’t mean a fierce snow parka, I have one of those, but more along the lines of a car coat with warmth; something stylish and cool that I won’t freeze my buns off in. My jacket I’ve been rocking for a few years is starting to retire. The buttons fall off every other day and it’s not exactly warm unless I layer loads underneath. I am super tiny so a coat with more structure suits my frame. I can’t exactly do over-sized chic unless I really am trying to look like MK and Ash Olsen circa 2005-2009. This year I am looking for a good basic black coat, a plaid one that is black and white or another mix of neutrals and then for layering, a perfect long down jacket (Roots) for an added layer that might otherwise be missing from a regular car coat. Also great for layering under a leather jacket for added warmth and cool stylistic touch.

My bf’s plaid, H&M shirt, Hidden Denim, Zara shoes, Coach bag

Wore this to the AGO last week and out and about celebrating my boy on his birthday. I knew we’d be out all day and the weather was gorgeous so you could really wear whatever you want with a light jacket. I knew we’d be by the water going up in a helicopter for his birthday surprise with Heli-tours. Which I highly suggest! So fun. And then we were mid-downtown and if gets way warmer. Having my ankles show was a good idea to cool off a bit when the sun came out that day. I wore a long sleeve because the AGO is pretty drafty , as you can see I stole my man’s plaid. We went for the Guillermo Del Toro exhibit of which I also highly suggest checking out. Very cool!

There’s no place like home

Joe Fresh denim shirt and jeans, Nine West shoe, Zara jacket

There’s no better outfit than the Canadian tuxedo for Fall. It’s chic and super warm since you’re rocking a thick denim. On top I threw on my trusty leather jacket for some edge, more texture and honestly more warmth. For this outfit I wanted the shoes to speak for themselves. They’re giving me serious life with the Dorothy vibes. The Wizard of Oz was my number one movie growing up as a kid. My mother tells me she put it on at least once a day. My boyfriend recently said I don’t know how people can watch the same movie over and over, and I’m one of those people; I blame my mom haha. I saw these shoes at Winners and passed on them until two weeks later I couldn’t stop thinking about them and finally bought them and I ain’t mad!

“That” Sweater

American Eagle Sweater, Vintage Denim, Sam Edelman Loafers

You know the sweater I’m talking about when I say “that” sweater. It’s your go-to comfy sweater. Fluffy, cozy, your security blanket essentially. For me I don’t love wearing pull over sweaters but when I want to be my coziest that’s the sweater I go for. I love this one because although it looks like it would boil you up but somehow it’s very breathable. It’s slightly cropped with tiny slits at the side that I love, along with a faux turtleneck. Tiny stylistic details are what always grab me and turn basics into edgy pieces. Soft pink, cream I think is very flattering as well. I paired it with the perfect light wash vintage denim and dark green loafers for a touch of colour. Really digging this weather for “Fall”. It’s quite warm in Toronto so we’ve been able to wear just a sweater and be almost too warm in it outside. Fashion gets to live on for a while before we cover our personal style under a parka.
