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.

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.

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!
