If its not Baroque...

Hurricane Sandy has been making quite a mess the last few days for our neighbours in the US. In Canada, high winds and rains have been beating down steadily, even causing power outages. Thankfully there hasn’t been too much damage here. And as the saying goes…if it’s not baroque…don’t fix it. Was that as lame as it sounds?

Falling in Love with Layers

This fall season, I’m all about layers. I’m not going to lie; at one point layering scared me. I was afraid that too many layers would make an outfit look too bulky and there are times where I felt like a marshmallow (round and shapeless). That is, until I figured out how to. My favourite combos are layering a thin sweater under a blazer, and pairing it with a patterned scarf and adding other embellishments like gloves and sparkly jewelry.



What I am Wearing:
Scarf: Gifted
Sweater: TNA (Aritzia)
Blazer: Urban Outfitters (OLD)

Pants: H&M
Boots: Rudsak
Purse: COACH (Gathered Leather Lindsay)
Sunnies: Michael Kors
Gloves: Banana Republic

Gingham Style

I'm sure most of the world has heard the pop song Gangnam Style by Psy. Its a catchy, crazy, fast beat song with crazy dance moves and even weirder antics in the music video. Yes I said antics.  Who says I cant be influenced by pop culture? I'm an impressionable young lady.

Though my post doesn't have any crazy horse saddling moves, This is Gingham Style by Nini. It's subtle, serene, and stays in the hues of browns, blacks and creams. Though not a music video, my photoshoots always include antics.
What I am Wearing: 
Dress: H&M
Booties: COACH
Jewellery: Earrings and Necklace (Aldo)
                  Boyfriend Watch COACH 
                  Bangle: Grandmother's
Gloves: COACH
