It is evident that I have a great admiration for simplistic pieces. I love just throwing on a little black jacket over a soft basic tee for a day trip to the city. In between the window-shopping, Wendy and I pranced around in the streets of Yorkville and snapped these photos. My 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target bag and faux leather leggings are making a comeback now that we are transitioning into the Fall season. What I love about this upcoming season are the muted, earth tone colours because it looks beautiful against the fall foliage. I can't believe that there's just one more week of Summer left before we dive into the new season!

Bag: Prada saffiano tote bag
Shoes: Gap flip flops (similar)
Bracelet: Brandy Pham 14K "cylinder" bracelet
Necklace: Etsy curved bar necklace (similar)

Here's a little piece of Paris tucked away in the Thompson Hotel between Wellington & Bathurst. Every square-foot of this French-inspired café was a sweet surprise as we were taken from room to room - bakery, dining area, lounge, library, bar, patio - you name it! My favourite part was the wrap-around terrace adorned with elegantly draped fabric. I wouldn't mind living at the Thompson Hotel and spending my mornings at this café.

Fall Staples | Club Monaco Edition

September 7, 2014

Fall Staples - CM Edition
Delaine Cashmere Poncho // Brooklyn Suede Bootie // Magi Scarf // Leathia Crop Sweater

Fall is near and the only few things that I am excited for are: autumn leaves, chunky knit scarves & jumpers, stack heeled booties and cozy sweaters. I've selected the above pieces from Club Monaco because they will not only keep you snug in the fall, but will also help to polish up your entire look. I love how they brought back pieces from the previous year - because they're such classic pieces you know that you can't go wrong having these in your closet!

You know that something is absolutely stunning when LIKEtoKNOW.it regrams it and receives 1,500+ Likes! Designed by the beautiful Brandy Pham, this cylinder bracelet was inspired by the architectural door hinges from her trip to Paris.

I would have to say that my style has evolved quite a bit within the last few months - one being the sudden gravitation towards pieces that are menswear-inspired, such as these super cute J.Crew mirror metallic oxfords. They were sold out online, but managed to score them on eBay. See below for some great alternatives!

Top: Tobi black racerback crop top (similar)
Bottom: Zara navy blue joggers (similar)
Shoes: JustFab 'Emmey' heels
Clutch: Estoite bespoke clutch (similar)
Bracelet: Brandy Pham 14K "cylinder" bracelet
Lips: Sephora lip stain in "Always Red"

Even though I've never been much of an athlete myself (does Grade 5 track and field count?), I've always loved the feeling of utmost comfort in sportswear. This sporty-meets-sophistication combo is absolutely brilliant, featuring a relaxed silhouette and slouchy pants. While I do feel that track pants are a tad masculine, pairing feminine accents easily does the trick in solving this. This is why I opted to upgrade these sleek side-striped joggers with a sophisticated racerback crop top, lace-up heels and elegant gold-plated bracelet. Sports fashion is such a great way to transition us into the next season, but I really can't believe there are only a few weeks left until summer is officially over!
