Playful Plaid

IMG_5071Last month I ran a special 7-day long Fall Double Feature collaboration series with Style Cassentials, where we explored and put our own twists on upcoming trends for Fall.

One of the big trends this season is being Mad for Plaid!  Today I’m taking a more playful approach to plaid 🙂

Proofs-05There has been a sudden spike in Toronto temperatures lately,  which means getting into full on Fall garb on 20+ degree days, just doesn’t make sense.  So for today’s outfit of the day I decided to wear a sheer plaid shirt, with leggings for an easy, casual look.

Proofs-06Typically early mornings and evenings tend to be cooler – quick.  So in an effort to combat the sudden dips in temps … this light jean jacket and wooly wonderful-ness of this infinity scarf are perfect solutions! 🙂

Proofs-09How I Got The Look:

Jean jacket from Old Navy; Thick wool infinity scarf from Aldo Accessories; Black n’ white sheer plaid shirt from Reitmans; Leather calf leggings from Forever21+; Large cream Coach bag; Beige + sea foam toed heels from The Hudson Bay Co.; jewelled studded flats from Payless; extra thick infinity scarf from Aldo; and vintage bracelets from Spring’s Toronto Vintage Clothing Show

Fall Double Feature: Loving Leather

Ok folks ….. This week we say farewell to summer and officially move into FALL!

Today, I’m excited to start a new Fall series. This “double feature” is a collaboration with fellow petite plus blogger, Cassie from Style Cassentials.

Cassie describes her style as modern classics with a little dark or edgy glamour.   I prefer classic, feminine, and sophisticated pieces.  Together, we will be exploring and putting our own twists on several fall trends…all week long!

Today, we are talking LEATHER!

Proofs-02

There is just something so sexy and simple about black leather.  For me I like mixing leather on leather it with lighter, sheer fabrics to give the look a more feminine and sophisticated vibe.

Proofs-03Stepping into the blue with my silver toed blue pumps, from Reitmans.  I’m really feeling the cobalt cool hues for Fall too.  I think incorporating pops of this hit of colour via accessories, purses and shoes are a good move over the next few months 🙂

LKP Fall2014How I Got The Look:

Sheer floral top from Macey’s; leather calf leggings from Forever21+; Leather & suede jacket from Sears; black studded clutch from Ardene; silver toed blue pumps from Reitmans
