Fall Double Feature: Sweater Glamour

I hope you’ve been following my series in collaboration with Cassie from Style-Cassentials.   We’re discussing fall trends this week – if you missed any of my previous posts from this special Double Feature, you can check them out here.

Today we are talking about cozy, comfy, cuddly Sweater Glamour!

Last year, I ended up buying a few sweater dresses  during end-of-season sales, so I never really got a chance to maximize wearing them.  They are PERFECT for the Fall …

Proofs-16

What I love best about them is the fact that they are warm enough to allow you to leave home without a proper jacket.  I picked up this red caplet from Jack Lux vintage and costume pop-up shop on West Queen West.  (A few of my Toronto Vintage Society sisters have been styling their window mannequins over the last few months, click here to read all about that).  Adding this bright pop of colour really helps break up the taupes and browns of this outfit.

Proofs-17 How I Got The Look:  Snake print sweater dress from Old Navy; red caplet from Jack Lux vintage; brown leather purse from a vintage pop-up sale in The Juncton (small bowler bag from Guess); brown suède booties and double drop pearl earrings Reitmans and mother of pearl ring from my travels in Jaipur, India.

 

Proofs-18I’m really digging  this oversized poncho-esk sweater Cassie is rocking.  And that fringed purse…**swoon**.  Head over to Style-Cassentials for all the details on how Cassie has styled the trend.  Or check her out on Facebook here.

Weekend OOTD: Flirty Hi-Lo Dress

 

It finally happened — I got to enjoy a weekend in Toronto without wearing a jacket!!!

Yup! I’ve been working like a dog lately…..but this weekend I was determined to enjoy at least one of the amazingly sunny days  out & about the city!  This past Saturday I barred my arms, legs and toes!  HAZZA!  Even busted out my summer fedora!

As y’all know I’m not a big wearer of make up….especially daytime during the weekend.  I also hate doing my hair.  Sooooo wearing a cute little summer fedora (or any woven hat) is my solution to looking like I know what I’m doing…outfit-wise 😉

I’m not a big wearer of jeans …but I think a woven hat like this one, would also good pair of worn-in jeans and a simple white blouse – perfect weekend look.

But since I work from home, leaving the house is an EVENT to be celebrated…. so instead I decided to wear this light and airy dress:

I picked up this great flowy Aztec patterned dress from Forever21 during the fall…and never officially worn it out.  I had to get it altered (shortened) so that the hi-lo would really be notable and above my knees.  Pairing this dress with a simple sandal kept this look daytime casual… for last-minute plans of Saturday Flea Market shopping and lunching with a girlfriend.
