You really can’t ever dress properly to keep it cute and combat the weather you’ve got to endure in The6ix these days. A few weeks ago I was invited to a birthday party — a Joggers Soca Winter Boat Cruise upon the Empress of Canada.
The boat wasn’t as um, Empress-like as its name implied… but the event did have 2 floors of dancing DJ’d fun to be had… AND apparently everyone’s ticket came with food (which they ran out of before our birthday loving toop could get any)
Those ominous clouds above held off for the most part … buuuut there was a sudden 7-min storm that totally wrecked some parts of the city. Including the party guests on the top deck of the boat…like US!
Once that was behind us, it was lit on the top deck as we floated around the lake catching views and busting moves!
Below are the many looks that took place as the weather and dancing lead to removal of layers and drowned-wet-rat hair. 😀
There were surprisingly a ton of people on this boat that were “blasts from my past” … gotta love those unexpected catch-ups of faces you haven’t seen in more than 10-15 years!
The day was pretty great dancing, drinking and floating with the birthday girl and the team that love her.
Now that you know what I did, curious about what I wore to this Soca Joggers Winter Boat Cruise?
What I Wore
Y’all know I’m the biggest sports fan … and dressing “sporty” is a piece of cake for me. (**written dripping in sarcasm** ) #gosports
I really didn’t want to have to be worried about a jacket while on this boat. So layers was the name of the game for outfit strategy!
I found this cropped TFC sweatshirt from Winners a few days AFTER having attended my very first soccer game. So I was thrilled to have an excuse to wear this top somewhere where I’d stand out more than among crowded stands of similarly dressed fans.
I wore a simple ribbed black tank underneath a plain white tee to give me warmth layers.
My bottoms are my very first pair of jeaggings (jean leggings) … in black…rolled up cuz I’m short. With my wedge high-top black kicks and red mini-crossbody that’s just large enough for my cellphone, money, sunnies and lipgloss. Keeping me free to ‘jump up’ for all the soca fete ‘big chune’ goodness. **insert loud horn noise here**
How I Got The Look: TFC cropped hoodie, Winners; Round sunnies, Public Butter; Thin Cross-body purse, Necessities; Jeggings, Penningtons; High-top kicks, NineWest (layers of black tank and white tee both from Old Navy)
Would you take a Winter Boat Cruise around the Toronto Harbour?

We’re at it today!!! PPMeow!has teamed-up with StyleCassentialsto bring you another collaboration featuring some of the Winter Trends for 2016 Holiday Season!!!
Today’s we’re gonna show you how to rock the Fur trend in your Winter wardrobe for a party or two. 😉
You may remember this dress – THE Valentina Dress, by Kiyonna. Click here to see what I mean.
It is one of my favourites to wear, but I wear it so rarely due to its boobalicious-curve-hugging nature…
I mean: HAPPY HOLIDAYS, indeed! Right? 😉
Buuuuuuuuuut, it’s not a dress that I can just bring out to family functions and holiday parties among the many married couples
Sooo by adding a fur collar not only tames the amount of cleavage on display, but it adds a wintery touch to your outfit.
I found this gorgeous fox fur collar at a vintage shop in Montreal earlier this year. It has come in handy many times so far to amp up a look, keep the girls at bay or even just take a plain outfit to the next level. Visit my Instagram to see what I mean.
Cassie styled an all-black-everything look, with leather and pleats pulling everything together with this great fur jacket!
Head over to Style Cassentials for all the details on Cassie’s winter trend of fur in her outfit. Or her Instagram here. Or visit her Facebook page here.
Stay tuned every THURSDAY, all December long, to see how we’ve put our own unique twists on popular Winter Trends this year.
We hope they bring you some fashion inspiration to try yourself this month!

Hey, hey, hey….it’s Monday! And you know what that means – NEW BLOGPOST!
I’ve been battling my iPhone4s photo taking space… yes, it’s an old eff’ing phone…but it doesn’t have a cracked screen and I can’t bring myself to buy a new one just yet 😛
But I’m committed to recapping my outfits of the week (when I remember to take a snap) into a weekly blogpost for you in a fun series called: Last Week, Today.
I got to be a California Girl last week – check out all the fun things I did on Instagram!!!
And that’s when I got to go shopping at Unique Vintage in LA….who carry lovely reproduction pieces with sizes going all the way up to 4x!
Gatsby Glam is something I struggle with – so when I found this lovely on the sale rack, I had to try it on and hope for the best. It was a bit too small for me, but still lovely none the less. Pardon my lack of slip.
Whist in LA last week, I found this drappy black jumpsuit from a shop on Venice Beach. I really wasn’t sure it would work for me, but it was such a different shape than anything I’ve styled before, that I decided to bring it home with me 🙂
I made it “office appropriate” by pairing it with a hot pink blazer, wide belt and lace-up flats. You likee?
My last look from last week is this great Tatyana bicycle print dress with the greatest capped sleeves ever!
I wore it with the same wide belt I wore earlier that week with the drappy jumpsuit to tame the fun print for corporate life. 🙂
There you have it friends – what I wore last week – hope it provided some fashion inspiration for you to try yourself.
