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.

I originally saw these jeans on Pinterest and fell in love. Anything fringy, fuzzy, furry etc and I am in. I started to do some digging and I was only finding designer versions for atleast $100 plus. For me I’m never willing to splurge on a fast trend that I may not wear often enough, so as I own a million pairs of jeans (some that I don’t wear anymore) I decided to DIY a pair and try it out. Surprisingly they came out of the wash looking pretty dope that I don’t even need to invest in a pair, WIN! Here are some of the jeans I was eyeing before I made them myself: Zara, 3X1, and Loeil.

I am now “death warmed up” sick, and avoiding the camera lens at all costs since I am currently ricking the Rudolph glow. This outfit I wore this week leading up to knowing this day was coming. When I know I’m getting sick but have to look presentable I run to my comfort clothes. Though many don’t associate a Canadian tux ‘comfort clothing’, I do. Jeans are my comfort zone and I always have a good old soft worn-in pair like so. These babies I’ve had since early high school (gives you a sense of how much I’ve grown). I wore them to bits then threw them into the back of the fashion vault as I replaced them with newer, trendier jeans. Though some people follow the rule of “one in, one out” when you make a similar purchase, I get separation anxiety. So, I opened the vault and revamped them a little by chopping off the bottom and roughing them up. I like how vintage and light they look and they feel like you’re wearing nothing. That $15 went a long way in grade 10. Thank you Forever 21.

One of my favourite locations to shoot is the Canadian Opera Company building. Endless hidden nooks and spots to take great photos.
