Just a quick post on this busy Friday night. I’m currently running around like a crazy person, gearing up for what I call the ‘Thanksgiving Runaround’. Which is basically 48 hours of non-stop driving, to marathon visit with our loved ones…who are scattered everywhere, spanning from the Niagara region to the Halton Hills. Its wonderful, but its a ‘Runaround’…what’s the price point on helicopter rentals these days? Uber-Heli anyone?
On another note: I’m completely in love with this silvery vintage sweater dress I picked up recently. It’s actually sleeveless with a slight turtle neck collar. I love how the silver picks up the light; it has a very slinky affect. Sweater dresses are one of my favorite pieces to wear throughout the fall-winter season, they are so versatile and easy to dress up or down, or to layer with a great jacket or statement coat – like I’ve styled it here with my fav trench.
Wishing everyone a very happy Canadian Thanksgiving, wish us luck on our ‘Runaround’ – Thanksgiving outfit posts to follow.
Happy Tuesday folks, hope everyone is surviving the Mercury Retrograde situation…I was wondering why my life was falling down around my ankles like a worn out stocking. On the brighter side, here’s a look I plan on putting on repeat this fall; cant go wrong with a light sweater, boyfriend denim and a leather jacket thrown over the shoulders. Layering season has arrived!
I picked up this vintage leather jacket a little while ago at my local Kind Exchange. It was kind of an impulse purchase and when I got it home I wasn’t entirely convinced I’d be keeping it. But as it turns out, due to the fantastic construction and the way the old leather is worn in, I love the look of it thrown over the shoulders (also the gorgeous wine colour lining!). I’m working on embracing a variety of outerwear thrown over the shoulders rather than worn. Certainly not a new look in streetwear or style blogging, but in terms of integrating the idea into real life (from subway cars, to errands to cocktail hour) its a very fun sartorial challenge – more to come, I’ll let you know how it goes.
