What I Wore: Desk to Dinner

orange-pleated-skirt

When I was asked to style this Banana Republic skirt to take me from desk to dinner, I obviously said yes! Pleated and orange, this skirt is a super versatile combo of the two of my most favorite things!

And this outfit might just become my fave this fall – crewneck sweater cinched at the waist over a flowy skirt. Appropriate for work, cute enough for dinner and drinks, and super easy to throw together! It’s a winner in my books.

If you had to style this skirt, how would you wear it? Share in the comments!

What I Wore: Pale and Floral

mavi-red-jeans

Received these cute (and super comfy) Mavi Floral Red Jeans in the mail last week…I guess the news of my crazy pants addiction travel fast, huh? Well, if that means more crazy fun pants added to my wardrobe, than I don’t mind it one bit.

Don’t be fooled by this outfit…last weekend (when I wore it) wasn’t really warm enough for bare arms yet, but it sure was warm enough for some photos with my jacket off. This weekend however…oh, this weekend, I am baring my arms and legs…for realsies! Unless the weather people lied again, which they have been known to do…in which case, you’ll be spared from seeing my neon WHITE skin. Positive thinking, people! It’s a thing.

Speaking of my ghastly complexion…Should I try one of those spray tan booths before my wedding? I don’t want to end up like Anne Hathaway’s character in that horrid Bride Wars movie…but I also don’t want to look like this either…What to do, folks? If you have any tan-related advice…or crazy pants suggestions…please let me know!

What I Wore: Color Explosion

This is what I wore this Saturday to IKEA. Colorful pants, colorful top, and a red coat to top it off. Might be a bit too much for some, but I’ve never been one to shy away from of a little lot of color.

What I Wore: Let the Rain Fall Down

You know, funny thing happened as I got older (and presumably, wiser) – I learned that sometimes, it makes sense to dress sensibly. I no longer NEED to wear the highest of heels during the winter months (I’m not in Texas anymore). I have learned (from many mistakes) that leather boots get ruined after just one season of salty slush, while simultaneously failing to provide any kind of warmth – especially, once said salty slush has somehow eaten away at the leather, letting the freezing water sneak its way into my socks. Thanks, but no thanks.

So last winter, I stuck to my Cougar rain boots all winter long. That’s right rubber boots in the winter. It’s true – they aren’t the warmest. But throw in a pair of wool socks, and you’ve got a pair of waterproof winterized boots! This winter, I am planning to wear rain boots a lot, so I figured I should get a dressier pair…and then…

…I saw them. Mel rain boots. Cute as a can be, ankle-length, and comfy to boot! Perfect with dresses, skinny jeans…pretty much anything, really. I don’t ever want to take these off…well, except for when I sleep…maybe.

What I Wore: Grey, Red, and Sunny

How amazing was the weather this weekend? It’s middle of November, and I didn’t have to wear a coat! It just doesn’t get much better than this…in Toronto.

On top of enjoying the sunshine, I spent some time with my girlfriends bridesmaids, going over wedding details, watching Bridesmaids, and eating cheesecake. Best weekend ever? I think so!
