The last few days in Toronto have been pretty amazing. It’s crazy to see how much the change in weather has really impacted the city. The patios, the malls and the sports stadiums have been packed all weekend. Like everyone else, I took advantage of the warm weather and shot some looks for the blog. It’s official, I’ve definitely jumped on the coloured pants/denim craze and I’m not mad about it. I got these blue belted chinos along with this button down dress shirt from Forever 21.I think they pair really nicely together, and give off a clean preppy vibe. I’m thinking this could potentially be this seasons uniform. – It’s comfortable and classic yet the variety in colours gives it a modern twist. What I’m Wearing
I’m welcoming fall with open arms and a knitted sweater in today’s style post. Although I’m not a fan of the drop in temperature that comes along with the season change, I must admit I’m a lover of the cozy sweaters I get to add to my wardrobe. I kept it really simple with this look & played up the tone of the sweater by pairing it with all black counterparts and adding a hint of silver in the accessories department. – I hope you guys like it!
What I’m Wearing
There’s something about ‘cool guys’ hanging out in uniform that gets me every time. Varsity jackets, Chuck Taylor’s, crisp white tees & denim – a current rendition of a timeless style, you can’t go wrong!

Last summer I did a test shoot for Diesel Canada in this beautiful moto jacket & had been craving it ever since. It’s soft, supple & has become a mild obsession. Needless to say, it wound its way into my closet and has started to take over my Instagram account. The fitted cut, ribbed shoulder detailing & eye-catching, chromed zippers make this jacket a definite conversation starter. Dressed up or down, it’s always a win.

For all the downsides of winter in Toronto there are also some serious pleasures that come with all of the snow – curling up fireside in a great sweater with a cup of hot chocolate is not a bad way to wait out even the worst weather. I think that heavy knit sweaters will always be in style in Canada simply because our climate demands them – I tend to stock up as much as I can in November and then just live in them until Spring arrives, not the most creative I’ll admit but completely acceptable during the deep-freezes we’ve been going through. This cream coloured sweater from H&M is both stylish & reasonably priced, proof that these essentials can keep you warm without burning holes in your pockets. Definitely win-win.
