Outfit Of The Day: Leather Leggings

Green top & leather ootd 5

So, I don’t want to jinx myself here but lately the weather has been rather nice. And by nice, I mean no jacket required nice! Which isn’t the norm for us but hey I won’t complain because I know whats coming around the corner :PGreen top & leather ootd 3

Are you guys still loving the leather leggings trend? I know I am! In fact I’m on the hunt for a new pair. Initially when I bought these I wasn’t sure if I was really going to like them or get much use out of them. So Naturally, I opted for cheap pair…no buyers remorse here! Turns out, I love them! I find leather leggings ( faux or real ) are very versatile and surprisingly comfortable. You can pretty much wear them with anything and look great. Pair them with a chunky knit, sheer blouse, tank top, t-shirt & blazer or even under a dress. The possibilities are endless!

Current Obsession: Banana Republic’s New Look

Banana Republic collageOh my oh my!!! Banana Republic has gotten a major facelift thanks to Marissa Webb! Yes, I realize this is old news but I can’t stop obsessing over some of the new pieces from their latest look book.Banana Republic collage 2

Webb joined the company this past April as creative director and executive vice president of design. Not only does Marissa have her own contemporary label but she also served as J.Crew’s head designer for more than ten years. Thus making her a fab choice to add a little high fashion sass to the brand. Honestly I’ve never really been a big fan of their clothes, I found them to be a little too “office wear” and not in a good way. 😴 But that’s just my opinion! However, this latest collection is anything but that! Gone is that all too familiar and boring aesthetic, the new look is bold, daring and edgy.Banana Republic collage 3Banana Republic collage 4Source

This is the first collection since Webb joined the company, although she didn’t design this collection… Clearly you can see her influence on the brand. Sadly, we will have to wait until summer 2015 to see her first collection from concept to store but this is one blogger who is very excited to see what she has planned!

Hi guys! I’m out west in Alberta visiting some family and loving the warm weather they’re having. Just the other day, it was 30 degrees (celsius)!! Gotta love fall and the last bits of summer weather. Even though all the leaves over here have already started to fall :( but I did manage to find the most beautiful park in the city of Lethbridge called Henderson Lake Park. I could seriously live in this park. So beautiful!

When I’m travelling to visit family, I like to keep things simple, casual and chic. My wardrobe consists mainly of denim, leggings, tops and comfy sweaters. I use my accessories to dress up my look… And yes, I may or may not be wearing too many rings here! Lol!! I really love yellow, it’s one of my happy colours!! Mustard yellow is such a great choice for fall, it can easily be worn with warm and cool colours. And looks great against just about any skin tone :)

Fall 2014 Must Haves

Hi guys! Remember me? I must apologize for my long absence, I hadn’t intended to be gone for so long. For the past few weeks, I’ve been busy working on a marketing campaign and photo shoot for Heart & Stroke’s ‘ I <3 Shoe Auction 2015 ‘. And I can’t wait to share it with you guys but you’ll have to wait a few months for that…Now that that’s done, it’s back to blogging and catching up with your blogs :)

Ok my loves, its time to get frank with you. Lately our weather has been up and down and by that I mean mostly down. That’s right, Winnipeg I’m looking at you. From the rain to the cooler temperatures and the constant overcast sky… I’m ready to admit that fall is coming 😁. Also it is September after all and the leaves in my yard have already started to turn. Believe it or not, Fall is one of my favourite seasons! I always look forward to pulling out my chunky sweaters, all my boots, coats, etc but I also look forward to picking up a few new items. No big surprise there! Anyhow, I thought I would share some of my fall 2014 must haves with you.

The Chunky Knit

This is a no brainer if you live in a cold weather city like me! I plan on adding several pieces to my closet, everything from cardigans, thick turtle necks, slouchy crew necks, oversized sweaters and hopefully something cashmere too :)

My tip – Remember oversized sweaters shouldn’t look sloppy. To keep this from happening, look for sweaters that fit in the shoulders and I like to balance out the volume by wearing fitted trousers or skinny jeans, leggings or even a pencil skirt.

The Black Blazer:

A black tailored blazer is classic, chic and feminine. And it looks great on all body types! I truly believe your closet is not complete without one. Right?!

My tip – Look for blazers that fit smaller in the shoulders & arms and they should sit around your hip.

The Tall Boot A.K.A Riding Boot:

Boot collageI love a good riding boot because it’s classic but versatile. Dressed up or down, these beauties are your best friend. You can wear them with just about anything from skinnies to pants, skirts, dress, leggings etc… Need I say more.

Oversized Coat:

I believe it was the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 show that jumped started this chic trend. It’s the perfect piece to keep you warm as the summer days cools off and fall temperatures move in. Layering never looked so chic.

Slouchy Pants:

Whomever decided to combined the comfort of sweats with the polish of a trouser is a genius in my book. I love that these pants are relaxed in the hip but still have a tailored leg, making them still office approved. This is by far my favourite trend because they are easy to wear and ridiculously comfortable. I already own one too many pair.

What are you guys lusting after for fall?

xo, Jackie
