WMCFW Fall 2015

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

This week has been absolute madness for me. I just got back from NYC on Monday and headed straight into World MasterCard Fashion Week. I decided to go a little more mellow on the shows this year, having been to almost all the shows these past couple of seasons. Though Fashion Week is incredibly inspiring, fun and a great networking opportunity, it’s also incredibly tiring. So this season, I picked and chose the shows I most wanted to attend – Mackage, Hayley Elsaesser, Narces, etc. Catch my recap of some of my favorite moments of World MasterCard Fashion Week this weekend on the blog! Also coming this weekend!! Don’t miss my #5QuestionsWith Hayley Elsaesser!

Waterfront

Took a beautiful stroll on the waterfront in Toronto this evening after work. I love having time to walk around and explore my city without having a particular goal in mind. I love breathing in the cool and crisp fall air. The walk was very welcome after a busy day at work!

Them Boots

Knee high socks are perfect for the beginning of fall. I love combining a comfy oversized shirt with a cute dress. Had the pleasure of checking out the amazing new The Kooples store while I was in Los Angeles last month. The Kooples is a badass rock n’ roll brand from France that I had the pleasure of discovering in Paris two years ago thanks to Offner. I love absolutely every piece the brand puts out. It’s the perfect combination of rock and dainty. I just couldn’t resist the amazing boots that I saw on display!

Captain

Reminiscing today about the amazing time I had in Capri back in June! This captain hat was the perfect thing to bring back from our wonderful stay there. My favorite thing we did while we were in Capri was hands down renting a boat and exploring the island. So much fun!! If you’re planning on traveling to Capri in the near future, make sure you check out my Capri travel blog here.

Been on the road this past week for work in Quebec City. While I was there, I got to see some amazing shows including Tegan and Sara (hello dreamy sunset!), Serena Ryder, Mozart’s Sister and Phantogram (best show I’ve seen this year, hands down!! In case you haven’t checked it out yet, go read my 5 Questions With: Sarah Barthel of Phantogram here). Happy to be home for a few days before heading to NYC!

Scouting

Happy Canada Day!! Spent a fun day off scouting locations today for a brand new music video that I’ll be styling this weekend. I’m beyond excited to be styling my second official music video. Thus far, it’s been a really fun and challenging experience because the video entails a lot of different eras and characters. In addition, it’s always a challenge to work on a very small budget. I’m definitely putting my School of Style knowledge to use! I can’t wait to share with you all some pictures from the shoot and the finished product. Though I can’t unveil just yet who I’m working with, I can tell you that this artist is taking the Canadian hip hop world by storm!

Maxi Dress #DailyOutfit

I purchased this super comfy cotton maxi dress last year from H&M for ridiculously cheap. I haven’t worn it much other than at the beach but I decided to dress it up today with a beaded jean jacket, a belt and some colorful jewels. I thought it’d be the perfect way to spice up a simple long dress and also add more shape to it. They’re definitely worth looking into for the summer. You can find plenty of them at H&M for $10-$20.
