We took a stroll through Toronto’s lovely Cabbagetown neighbourhood over the weekend, and boy, it was chilly! This crisp autumn weather necessitates lots of layers – meaning a preppy pairing like chambray under a sweater makes perfect sense.

Do you have any favourite layered outfits?

I’ve never been a huge fan of camo for clothes – especially the big, chunky variety that looks way too much like actual military gear. But when I spotted this skirt on sale at H&M, I decided to give it a shot. I love how it gives a bit of an edge to an outfit!

Brown & black

I used to be so, so against brown & black together. “They clash, they’re too similar, it just doesn’t work,” I used to say. Then I was inspired by a Calvin Klein bag I spotted in Hudson’s Bay recently – I liked it so much that I immediately Instagrammed it – so I decided to explore brown & black a bit more. Safe to say, I’m a fan now… it’s a pairing that definitely works.

Black & blush

I absolutely love this colour combo for fall & winter party attire. The pairing of black and blush is classic looking, especially with a pair of timeless pumps and statement jewelry. I want every single one of those items above… and goodness knows, there would certainly be lots of places to wear them all with the holidays coming up! (There are already Christmas ads on TV – no joke.)

Cooler temperatures call for chunky knits and comfy cardigans. Here’s a few of my favourite new fall sweaters that look both cozy and stylish. Have you spotted any nice sweaters on store shelves lately?

I love fall clothing for its richness – there are always deep hues of indigo and crimson on the racks and, of course, lots of basic black. This season there’s also so much happening with patterns and embellishments on clothing too, which leads to lots of fun and fabulous choices for holiday parties… the office… you name it! I love all the pieces I picked above – but especially that dress from Mango (picture it with black tights and heeled boots) and those darling flats from Coach. Also need to get my hands on that Club Monaco necklace – it’s the perfect way to glam up a little black dress.

Style: Metallic silver heels & loafers

Metallic silver shoes

I’ve been a little bit in love with silver shoes since I first spotted that top pair of heels at J. Crew. They’re glam at first glance, but totally versatile – they’d look just as cute with faded denim jeans as they would with a cocktail dress. And heck, if you keep them in good condition, they’d be nice wedding shoes too (what can I say? I’m thrifty & plan ahead!)

With all that being said, the loafer variety looks mighty comfy and more practical for day-to-day. Not sure which ones I’ll end up getting… what do you think?
