Hey guys,

It’s the last day of September and there’s so much stuff I’m OBSESSED with right now, so what better than to share it with all of you….Check it out:

1. My fave actress on the cover of Vogue this month. This video literally had me smiling ear to ear in the office yesterday like a huge psychopath, but she’s just SO friggin cute.

2. Um, K…power fashion couple alert. He is the buying director for Mytheresa.com and she is the style editor for Harper’s Bazaar Germany. Like is this a cruel joke?

3.  One of my fave fashion movies playing at TIFF…who’s coming?

4. Woke up to this….pretty on point Karl Lagerfeld. So ’70s, so music festival-ish, so HeForShe…wooop.

5. #ClooneyWedding — need I say more? Ok, wait…His wife Amal Alamuddin has pretty killer style. NBD.

6. My favourite fashion blogger Nicole Warne ready for the Valentino show in Paris this morning. That dress…I can’t even.

7. Officially released today…I cannot wait to read this book. I love her.

8. Friggin’ sweet (pun intended) new Bakery alert. They have homemade pop tarts. Yep.

Have a great week!

Fall Trend: How to Wear Sneakers

Fall Trend Sneakers

Tailored Coat | Black Jeans | Hat | High Tops

Satchel | Sneakers | Cardigan | Jeans 

Trousers | Bag | Sneakers | Coat

1. Missoni x Converse High Tops

How to Wear Them: I absolutely adore the Missoni x Converse collab. These sneakers can really be paired in a number of different ways. For a more refined look you can go with a slim black skinny jean, extra long white button-up, and the cream-coloured leather coat shown above. Top the look off with a cute wide brim hat and a simple black clutch.

2. New Balances

How to Wear Them: New Balances are the perfect day-off sneaker. Simply pair them with a good boyfriend jean, a white tee, and a cozy cardigan. Pull the look together with a structured satchel and accessorize with your favourite silver jewellery.

3. Loeffler Randall Slip-ons 

How to Wear Them: This sneaker has a bit of an elevated edge so you can try wearing them to work if you’re in a creative setting. Sport these with a pair of silk trousers, a crisp white blouse and an extra long overcoat. Top the look off with slouchy bucket bag.

Getaway Faves

Getaway Faves

Hey guys.

 Since the next month for me includes a fair bit of travel, I put together a list of my favourite things to pack for getaways. For plane rides, go for a comfortable, yet chic look with these 1.61 drawstring pants and Osman crop top. I’m a big fan of totes when travelling and this white leather Smythson is the holy grail of handbags. It’s perfect for shoving the latest issue of Vogue, sunscreen, a water bottle, and whatever other necessities you find you just can’t part with. Don’t forget to protect your iPad with this beyond-cute Toucan print case from Kate Spade. For lunches and nights out opt for a fun clutch like this Marc by Marc Jacobs one featuring his signature bulldog. You can thank the fashion gods for the latest obsession with Birks because these guys are the perfect shoe for exploring your destination city. Don’t forget to document the trip: I especially love the Fuji film Instax camera that instantly prints out photos as you take them. In terms of beauty, low key is best. Simply spray in some Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray for the perfect beach waves and you’re out the door in seconds. I also love this Bobbi Brown multi-tasking cream that works on both your cheeks and lips. Lastly, opt for a bright nail colour on your trip. I am currently obsessed with this bright blue from Essie that goes perfectly with the seasons whites. Be sure to pack a pair of cute sunnies. I like this Tory Burch pair that are classic and neutral enough to pair with any outfit. Lastly, no matter if you’re going to the beach or the city, always pack a swimsuit. I love this classic nautical striped two-piece by Chloe.

Wishing you all safe travels and a good first week of May!

Weekend It-List

Hey Everyone!

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m definitely looking forward to unwinding this weekend. After a crazy month of April, I finally have a weekend off from work. Today I’ve planned a coffee date, mani/pedi and morning at the St. Lawrence Farmer’s Market (most likely, throw in an hour of shopping in there too). Later on, I’ve got a night out with my girlfriends to a celebrate a birthday. This is my ideal weekend, with Friday night spent relaxing after work—with a book, obvi— and Sunday spent working on my Thesis. I know, it might sound totally boring, but I cherish this down time. I also love NOT dressing up for work and getting to wear whatever my heart contends (think distressed boyfriend jeans, sneakers, and a baseball tee).

For a little weekend reading I decided to put together an It-List of all the best things in Fashion at the moment:

sophia-webster-for-jcrew

1. Sophia Webster for J.Crew. Check out these bad-boys. I die. Sadly, they are not sold in Canada, but get your fix online here. Or follow her on Instagram. She is beyond cute and the endless photos of insane shoes don’t hurt either.

 emma-stone-vogue

2. Emma Stone. Gracing this months cover of Vogue, she is hands down the It-Girl in Hollywood right now. I’ve loved her since her Easy-A days and I cannot get enough of her newly Ombre bangs. Ah-mah-zing. Also don’t forget to see Spiderman 2 this weekend.

 hannah

3. Hannah Bronfman. The DJ and Co-founder of the Beautified App is notorious for popping up at all the latest fashion events and even debued her first time on the catwalk at Donna Karan this past New York Fashion Week. Be sure to follow her for on Instagram and you’ll catch her dancing like a boss in Beyonce fitness classes. No seriously.

mean-girls

4. The Mean Girls of Fashion. A detailed map of the various cliques in the Fashion industry. So, so Awesome. I mean, like, so Fetch. I CANT EVEN. Brought to you by the Coveteur.

tibi-vans

5. Ok, my love of sneakers will never end. This collab between Tibi (like, what!?!) and Vans is beyond me. Get your pair here.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Hey Everyone!

With our clocks set ahead one hour this Sunday I thought I should start posting a few of my favourite Spring trends. I know today is exceptionally warm out, but trust me fellow Torontonians, it is just a tease. Sadly, tomorrow is supposed to snow a crap load and go back down to -17, so brace yourselves. Anyway, This outfit speaks to my personal style in volumes. It’s all about being trendy yet relaxed and comfortable. I’m all about the sneaker game and die for these woven Nike high tops. Similarly, I’m obsessed with the oversized sweater coat look; it goes with everything, especially in this warm camel colour, and will keep you warm with the weather transitioning. Boyfriend jeans are another staple this spring and in a light wash you can’t go wrong. Pair these with sneakers or dress ’em up with your favourite heels. Lastly, Ice cream colours are also a favourite trend and I’m loving cotton candy pinks and buttercup yellows. Spring is definitely a time to experiment with nail colours.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m looking forward to lighter layers and warmer weather! Stay tuned for more Spring Fashion reports!

Hey Everyone!

For all of you getting ready for a date this Valentine’s Day or just need a little outfit inspiration here’s a selection of my favourite pieces this February. I absolutely love the new Aritzia midi length dress, especially in this bold red color. Paired with a simple leather jacket, cutout wedges and a calf hair clutch and you’re good to go.  One of my fave beauty products is Deborah Lippmann nail polish; I think candy pink is perfect for February. I also cannot get enough of my Chloé Roses fragrance…who needs an actual bouquet of roses anyway? Don’t forget to indulge in some pretty lingerie…it wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without it. Same goes for cute accessories like this Oh La La coin purse from Kate Spade and the Lips iPhone Case by DVF.

Hope you all have a wonderful Febraury 14th!
