I’m back . . . after a long hiatus. My last post was in June, yikes! Can you believe we are at the end of August already? It’s almost Fall, one of my favourite seasons. What I love about this time of year is transitioning in to my Fall wardrobe and picking up new pieces for the cooler weather. This year I’ve been focussing a lot on workwear and versatile pieces that can wear well in to the Winter.
I am currently loving all the Fall workwear at Dynamite this year. I picked up all the pieces in this outfit from their Fall collection. One trend I’m noticing this year is plaid. Once again we are mad for plaid and these skinny high waisted pants are no exception. I like how stretchy and versatile these pants are. They are a quite snug to begin with but have some stretch to them so resist your instinct to size up and stay true to your size with this item.
I paired the pants with a fitted camel turtleneck. I like how soft and comfortable this top is when you wear it. Camel, caramel and soft browns are another popular trend this Fall and this turtleneck is a perfect way to incorporate the trend in to your transition wardrobe.
To finish off the look I added a black blazer for contrast. It also picks up on the black stripes in the plaid pants. For a more neutral look you can add a camel blazer and stick with the soft brown tones on top.
I accessorized this look with a pair of timeless leopard print pumps for a little sass. For a more conservative look you can always wear a pair of black pumps. If you want to go the more edgy route this pair of leopard print mules is a great alternative as well.
Are you looking forward to Fall? If so what are your favourite Fall fashion trends?
Nothing says Spring like pastels and florals right? How cute is this bodysuit and jogger pant combo? I found the sweetest floral bodysuit at Dynamite! I love the muted colour of this bodysuit. It’s so soft and feminine. The wrap front gives it a dressier look and I would even wear this bodysuit to work. I also found a pair of super comfy jogger pants. I’m liking the comfortable chic trend that’s emerging this Spring and this jogger pant (also from Dynamite) fits the bill perfectly. What I liked about this pant is that it’s a pull on, there’s no drawstrings or zippers to worry about. The pant has some stretch to it so it fit well over the bodysuit. I paired this combo with a pair of super cute sling back kitten heels. These shoes are so comfortable, and stylish. This reminded me of a perfect Spring outfit that could go from workweek to weekend 🙂
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas truly is my favourite time of year. I love all the family gatherings, the lights, the cooking and of course the holiday fashion! This year I’m noticing the velvet trend with many retailers showcasing it in their holiday collections. Dynamite launched a few of their holiday items a couple of weeks ago and I picked up this cute and comfy black velvet romper.
The velvet adds a touch of elegance and class to go along with the chic deep black colour. The romper is strapless but comes with attachable straps if you need a little more support or just want to change up the the look. I paired it with this off-white long blazer that I got at Dynamite a few years ago, however you can still find a similar white blazer in store. For the legs I decided to go with a patterned tights as it’s getting a bit colder here in Ottawa. If you’re lucky enough to live in a warmer climate you could opt for a bare leg with this piece. Opaque black or coloured tights would also work or you could go for the bare leg illusion and pair it with some flesh coloured tights. The best thing about this romper is that it’s not strictly a seasonal piece, it can be worn year round in lieu of a little black dress perhaps? 😉
