Teddy Bear

Turning into a teddy bear seems to be the trend this season and I’m sooo not mad about that. I’m all about a fuzzy piece of clothing and always have been so when this trend started to come about I was extremely excited. It’s also the best trend ever for those of us that don’t like to get out of bed because I’m always soooo cozy in my outfit. I got this sweater at H&M in the Divided section quite recently and I really loved it because it’s the same style as a Patagonia sweater but half the price. I’ve yet to get a good teddy coat but I think that’s my next purchase while this trend is happening.

Red is having a serious moment right now, and I am in, I love a good punch of a power colour. I found this photo flipping through pictures from NY Fashion Week on the Harpers Bazaar website and this one jumped out at me because it’s the perfect transition outfit and she’s wearing a kimono and if you know me you know I’m obsessed with kimonos. Any sort of “from bed to the street chic” I really dig; it’s all about comfort to me. I really like the mix of colours most for this particular outfit. Her caramel turtleneck and matching brown hued bag, with white pumps to match the white lining on her red wrap jacket paired with raw hemmed denim, effortless details!

 Most days you’ll find me in some variation of a jeans and t-shirt combo. I’m all about being comfortable. I remember I used to dress in ways that I thought was on trend, and it may have been, but I just never felt comfortable. I remember putting outfits together that I knew I wouldn’t wear but would photograph for my blog because it was spread across magazines and was the “trend at the time”. Meanwhile after shooting pictures I would change back into jeans and t-shirt. That has become such a go-to for me that it’s comical when I put a dress on I feel extremely over-done. 

Jeans and a t-shirt is how I feel my most comfortable and I like to spice it up with accessories. A statement jacket, interesting shoes, dramatic sunglasses, unique bag and the list does on.

#OOTD x Sept 16th

Besides iPhone/Apple and all their crazy updates and changes to the software etc I think one of my fave things they ever added was when and where the photo was taken in albums. In this case it just helps me with the date, but with other memories it’s nice to have that extra information.

Anywho, style notes. So Toronto’s Fall is one of the most menopausal seasons ever.Β Β It’s hot one minute in the sunshine then you hit shade or a cloud covers the sun and you are searching for your parka. So it’s all about smart layering. With this I threw on my leather jacket for added warmth closer to the evening and during the day added a silk scarf to the oversized cowl-like turtleneck in order to keep my neck a little warmer on this chilly day. Wearing open-toe shoes and ripped denim are key pieces in the Fall months while trying to monitor your temperature.

I personally think fall is fashion season. You get to play with all your jackets (we all know we have a leather, a bomber, a knee length etc etc), layer in interesting ways, colours become richer and dark long nails and dark lips are my favourite vampy accessory. I’ll be taking in all the street style inspiration this season. Show me whatchu got!
