What to Wear Wednesday: Thanksgiving Dinner

What to Wear Wednesday - Thanksgiving Dinner

What to Wear Wednesday – Thanksgiving Dinner by freshcollective 

This weekend is Thanksgiving – a time to spend with the family, drink a little wine, eat a LOT of food and give thanks for all the good things in life (like fashion?).

Patterned Dress: This dress from Mandala is the perfect colour and print for an autumn get-together. (available online now)
Knee-high Boots: Great boots for fall that you can easily dress up or down. The button detailing adds a feminine touch to these black Miz Mooz
Statement Earrings:
 Add some sparkle with a bold piece of statement jewellery like this pair of stunning earrings by Sugar Rush!

I’m really looking forward to heading home and spending some time with my family this weekend, and I certainly have a lot to be thankful for right now! I’m thankful for my family and friends, my amazing job and the wonderful supportive people I get to work with, and for the fabulous opportunities I’ve had lately with my singing. Life is good!

What are you thankful for this year?

 

She’s Got Style: Fall TV : Parenthood’s Lauren Graham

She's Got Style: Lauren Graham

If I wasn’t already excited enough about fall fashion, here comes fall television season! Old favourites returning, new shows and characters to fall in love with… oh the excitement!

Everyone takes a fashion cue or two from celebrities, so I thought why not tie in fall television to fall fashion and do a bit of a fashion profile on some of the starlets of the season!

In my opinion, one of the BEST shows on television, NBC’s Parenthood (on Global in Canada) finally returned from hiatus last week. I got a chance to watch the premiere episode last night and as always, it left me in tears (I’m a big sap, what can I say?). Now the cast is full of incredible stars, but I have a huge soft spot for TV’s coolest mom, Lauren Graham who plays the quirky Sarah Braverman. Not far off from her beloved role of Loralei Gilmore in Gilmore Girls, Graham plays a single mother with an irresponsible past, trying to get her life together with the help of her huge family of loveable kooks.

I’ve always admired Grahams style. She tends to wear comfortable, basic pieces with a bit of a bohemian flair, while adding just the right amount of rock and roll edge. She’ll pair a pretty, feminine dress with some knee-high leather boots, or add a biker jacket over basic jeans and a jersey top. A touch of sparkle with some statement jewellery, a nude lip and a simple eye are the finishing touches to this easy-to-master look!

What to Wear Wednesday – Miss mustard

Today’s WTWW is based around one of my favourite pieces. MUSTARD SKINNY JEANS! Now to some these may seem alarming, but I promise they are a staple of the season.

We’ve got these great mustard-coloured Yoga Jeans in store right now at our Roncesvalles and Kensington Market locations and I wanted to put together a fun outfit with them!

You may think “what on earth do you wear with pants this colour?” but you’d be surprised at the number of combinations you can pull off! Obviously a basic black or white top will work, but pair it with an unexpected splash of colour (a royal blue or rust orange perhaps?) or a bold print to really stand out!

Below I paired them with a loose fitting bohemian white tank, a long necklace (Sugar Rush), stackable bangles (Odd Bird) and a great plaid blazer. Statement blazers in plaid or brocade are a big trend this fall and can take a casual outfit and turn it professional, while maintaining a high fashion edge and stand-out style. Finish your outfit with a pair of flats (in a colour that ties in the blazer) OR on a cooler day, try a pair of knee-high boots in a rich brown or black to complete the equestrian look!
