Think Pink; the Pink Coat Trend

August 21, 2013

This past week while at Zara I tried on a pale pink coat. I wasn’t sure if I was into the whole pink coat thing but turns out I am. I think it goes back to the mint green coat I almost bought at H&M last year. It was a great coat but I thought a bit expensive considering I found it at H&M so I decided to…


Stripes on Stripes and a red cross body bag

August 14, 2013

Sometimes you have items in your closet for ages but one new piece can bring the whole thing together. I picked up this red cross body bag at Coco’s Closet on the weekend (Thank you NADIA!), and it just inspired this whole outfit. Since I can’t get enough of stripes this year pairing them just makes sense. One thing that you notice if you read alot of style…


Managing the Transition; Fall Outfit Completers

August 13, 2013

If you haven’t caught the Fall bug yet you will soon. I always seem to get that itch when back to school shopping frenzy starts. Even though I haven’t gone back to school in quite some time. Before you ever need a Winter coat, it is more about managing the transition. Cool evenings, colder mornings. Sometimes just admitting you need to wear socks again is a big deal.…


This should be in your closet; Denim Pencil Skirt

August 12, 2013

One thing that I think should be in every girl’s closet is a denim pencil skirt. The 90’s favourite denim mini is making a bit of a comeback of late (what from the 90’s isn’t?!) but I think a pencil skirt has more longevity. This Earnest Sewn denim pencil skirt I am wearing above has been in my closet for more than 5 years. It was one of…


Styling the Tibi Cami

August 9, 2013

When twitter calls I come running. The team at eluxe tweeted a style challenge to style the Tibi Cami that is part of their new pre-fall collection. At first I styled it 2 ways. For an everyday casual look and then a going out look.   Tibi Cami 2 Ways by toshopoholic featuring a slim fit leather jacket Then I said to myself “this is a super versatile…


Valentine’s Day in August

August 8, 2013

People often have Christmas in July parties but no other holiday really evokes the same feeling out of people that makes them want to celebrate twice a year. But when I put together this outfit I immediately thought it was Valentine’s day appropriate with the pink, white and red colour combination. You won’t catch me smiling in today’s post because I was actually quite annoyed when doing these…


Oxblood Do-over

August 7, 2013

Oxblood was THE colour for fall 2012. I mean did you not read about it everywhere? My post on the difference between Oxblood & Burgundy is still being found in Google a year later. The colour isn’t going anywhere for this fall although the name OXBLOOD might not be thrown around on every blog and magazine in the same way. I think it is one of the perfect…


The Stripe Coat

August 6, 2013

It is hard to believe that I am actually posting about a coat in the summer but it has been cool enough in the evenings and early mornings to put on a extra layer. I feel as though I am on repeat because I am pretty sure I said the same thing in the last post. Like I am justifying putting on a coat in August. Either way…


White & Grey with a strappy Heel

August 1, 2013

I had been thinking about this outfit combination but for most of July it was way too hot to wear pants, let alone pants and a blazer. But this past week and a half has been perfect and it is cool enough in the evenings and mornings to layer. Everytime I wear these shoes I feel like a badass. They are just that kind of shoe. Otherwise this…


JCREW PreFall Shopping Night

July 31, 2013

I was out at the JCREW up at Fairview Mall in Toronto over the weekend to get a chance to check out some of the fall items in person. My favourite necklace from the new season is this Crystal Fan Necklace. The tailored eyelet blouse is pretty fab too, taking a boho style and turning it on its head. I was a bit overdressed for what ended up…
