Now that the sunshine has officially begun (and spring feels like it might actually arrive), I need to get through the last of my winter photos. Here’s an interesting combination of particular note. I love this window-pane blazer, and especially with white jeans. Why not?
Bow Tied Paradise
What I love about this outfit is that it somehow remains subtle, despite my decision to pair a patterned bow-tie with a patterned shirt, and to wear coloured pants, and bright socks. But I think that’s sometimes what style is all about—integrating the loud with the soft, the subtle with the brave, making a statement while whispering. You know?
Today’s Photographer: Sam, who found some amazing angles with this photoset, right before we found some amazing lunch.
There’s very little that says “Canadian” more than lumberjack plaid, tartan, and a Hudson Bay-inspired sweater. And that’s what this look is all about—the maple leaf forever.
Even though I picked up these Fluevogs from a vintage store in Chicago.
Sometimes the middle of winter requires a pop of colour to make you feel alive. And by sometimes, I mean most of the time. This outfit was inspired by a winter look a saw with a bright orange sweater and white jeans. I took the inspiration and applied my own wardrobe.
Winter wear doesn’t have to be boring. I found this amazing coat on sale mid-way through the cold weather this winter, and it inspired me to blog again—you’ll see that in the next few photosets. And an outfit of blue always needs yellow shoes.

A Pop of Yellow
Though this looks like the weather we’re having now, this photoset was actually taken just before the snow starting to fall all winter long. I’m still very behind in getting these posts up.
But this is also a pretty decent spring look—winter-y sweater with a light jacket and bright shoes. Just a pop of yellow to let us know that spring is around the corner…

Over The Top
These shoes are certainly an “over the top” choice, but they’re also a choice that can be incorporated once in a while to mix things up. Throw in a camel-coloured topcoat, a matching canvas bag, and you’ve got something like an outfit. A risky one, sure, but something.
Today’s Photographer: Megan… I think.
Memories of Fall: Selfie Success
You have to admit that, despite the fact that they’re all selfies, the photos in this post turned out pretty good. The things you can accomplish with a decent camera and a miniature tripod are endless. Or I suppose they’re not endless, but they are pretty cool. I like the mixture of texture and pattern in this outfit. And more than ever, looking at this just makes me long for fall weather once again.
Today’s Photographer: Me.
Memories of Fall: Shades of Red
When you work in a building with all red doors, it’s pretty easy to make a comparison like this. Add a red bag, red laces, wine-coloured stripe on a cardigan and you’re set. Shades of red it is…
Today’s Photographer: Sam? I think…
Memories of Fall: Briefly Home
This post is my first in a while, but I’ve still got files full of fall photos to get up here, so I will continue with “Memories of Fall”… the series that makes us all wish for an end to winter.
This outfit marked the first foray for my Christmas sweater—which is really just the best. I’ve been making great use of it throughout the winter.
Today’s Photographer: My mom… yep, actually.
