You may think you know your shoe size, but do you truly know how to get the right boot fit for your unique shoe and calf?  TONI+’s directions will help you to properly measure your feet and calves in 3 simple steps:

Step 1:  Length of your foot – Measure the length of your foot

Step 2 – Width of your foot – Measure the width of the widest part of foot (from the ball to just beneath your little toe)

Step 3 – Calfsize – Measure the circumference of the fullest part of your calf

Measure both feet and calves for all 3 steps. It is normal for one foot and calf to be bigger than the other. Always use the larger measurement to gauge your boot size.

TONI+s footwear collection features a stylish 100% Italian leather options ranging from ankle and riding boots.  And with this Personal Fit Code, they will ensure your boots fit perfectly. You can get professionally measured in-store or measure yourself at home using the above steps.

Denim Daze

For the past few years I’ve totally been a skirts and dresses kinda gal.  I very rarely ever wear jeans.

Don’t get me wrong – I love the look of denim!  It’s just not the first think I of wearing.  But for Fall they are pretty perfect for a causal vibe.  (Click here to see how I incorporated denim previously this week.)

I picked up this faux hoodie-denim jacket from The Hudson Bay Co. this spring from the Jessica Simpson Collection.

I wasn’t sure if mixing dark with light denim would work — but I like how it turned out.  Since I kept the colours pretty simple throughout the outfit, adding the pink plaid pop of colour in the footwear and scarf  really worked out nicely 🙂  (Click here to see the shoes and here for the hoodie-jacket in other looks)

This jacket doesn’t quite keep me warm enough for the cool Fall temperatures — so a hat not only helps keep the heat in, but also helps facilitate me not brushing or doing my hair!  #winningIMG_4741

How I Got The Look:  faux hoodie-denim jacket, Jessica Simpson Collection;  Black n’ white striped tee from HBC; Plaid loafers from Payless; Dark bootleg jeans from Old Navy; Scarf and knit hat from Ardene; Stripped paten leather purse, Kate Spade NY

Fall Double Feature: Blooms on Black

Happy Hump Day!!!  I hope you’ve been enjoying and  following my Fall Fashion series in collaboration with Cassie from Style Cassentials.

We’re discussing fall trends this week – if you missed any of my previous posts, you can check them out here, here and here.

Today we are talking about Blooms on Black!

Profs II-07

I haven’t always been a big fan of florals, but this Fall, I’m starting to re-think this….considering we’re only at Hump Day Wednesday with this special blog series, and I’ve already worn blooms-on-black twice!  (Click here to see how I incorporated florals with leather earlier this week.)

Profs II-06This Dorothy Perkins metallic floral top is adorable and feminine…perfect for evening or date night.

Profs II-08

I’m really feeling gold this Fall … in accessories like watches, bangles, necklaces, earrings.  Get yourself some GOLD friends!

Profs II-11

In an effort to really play up the gold elements of this top, I paired it with a simple black pencil skirt and my giant pearl necklace…

Profs II-12…keeping my purse and shoes simple matte black.

The back of this top is really the showstopper – don’t you think? 🙂  Dorothy Perkins – A UK company that sells some really beautiful, classic plus size pieces that are high quality and that you are sure to have in your wardrobe for years to come. Many of the items are wardrobe staples. Excellent quality and they sell Canadian sizes 14-18, as well as straight sizes.  Lucky for me The Hudson Bay Co. carry her line and I got to scoop up this fab top without online hassles!

Profs II-13

How I Got The Look:

Floral ivory & metallic toned top from Dorothy Perkins; black pencil skirt from Old Navy; open toed pumps from Diesel; Giant pearls from Your Big Sister’s Closet;  vintage bracelets from Toronto Vintage Clothing Show; black purse gifted

Profs II-10

How cute is Cassie in this terrific felt hat!?  The blue hues with yellow blooms on black in this dress is just lovely.  Plus those amazing gold earrings….Love. It!

Hello, Yellow!

It was a gloomy partly cloudy day in Toronto … and surprisingly chilly for a July day.

With an afternoon full of meetings in the downtown core (yuck), my mood needed some lifting.  So I decided that my outfit needed to be bright, loud and fresh.

Here’s what I came up with:

20140715-122435-44675240.jpg

I’ve been searching for “the perfect yellow” – very difficult to find.  Found this lovely light-weight sweater in the clearance rack ($14) at Reitmans in The Duffrin Mall the other day, figured I’d be saving it for the Fall, but today was just cool enough to unveil it.20140715-122433-44673157.jpg

My favourite parts of this outfit are the shoes and purse!!!   Picked up both pieces LAST summer…..when I was totally obsessing over this amazing turquoise colour.  Even my earrings match in this outfit.  Aren’t these shoes just fantastic!!!!  Gawd! I love them! 🙂

So….Waddya think?

Multiple patterns!  Loud colours! Too much for an afternoon in the office?  Maybe…..buuuut I don’t care.

I like it!  It totally lifted my mood – and I’m ready to face these meetings with a “passionately neutral” approach 🙂

How I Got The Look:

Yellow & white stripped summer sweater from Reitmans; Grey checkered pencil skirt (click here to see skirt in other posts), Dorothy Perkins from The Hudson Bay Co.; Fabulous patterned peep-toed pumps from Nine West; Turquoise purse from Aldo Accessories; Earrings gifted.
