It’s mid-September and I think it’s safe to say summer is over, at least in Toronto. The sky is grey, night is creeping in sooner, and of course the temperature has dropped. The summer months are my favorite time of year but with fall well underway, I think it’s time my wardrobe and I adjust to the new changes.
So what’s the best way to ease the transition? To embrace all the good fall fashion the season has to offer! I’ve compiled a six-look launchpad to get you thinking all things autumn. From layering jackets to cozy knitwear, I’ve got you covered.
I’ve been gone for several weeks. Truth is, so much happened in the last weeks of 2017 I had trouble even keeping up in my own life. But the new year is bringing a ton of new opportunities and I’m gonna start sharing them with you now.
Fashion is cyclical and swings in a pendulum. Diffetent trends come and go with various shapes and silhouettes coming in and out of style. The year is about halfway over and I think it’s fair to say 2017 is the year of the sleeve.
The last time I explored Asian fashion was maybe about 10 years ago. My love for anime and J-pop poured over into a fascination with fashion hubs like the Harajuku district in Tokyo. These days it’s places like Seoul, South Korea that have caught my attention for their youthful, modern styles.
An eternity ago, when I was in high school, I was a punk. More like a punk/goth/anime kid. And one of the staples of my wardrobe were band tees. A friend gave me a The Starting Line tee, I picked up a My Chemical Romance tee from Hot Topic, and a few of my comrades wore this popular tee to showcase their love for The Used. The guy I crushed on had long hair down his back and one of the four shirts he wore was a Led Zeppelin tee.
Somewhere along the line I retired my music merch but more and more in the past few years I’m starting to see it make a comeback in fashion and I’m more than happy to take part.
How do you define home? Where you live now? Where you grew up? Where your family is? Or something else? Oftentimes how I interpret where home is depends on how I feel, who’s asking, or any other possible variable. My definition of home feels like it’s always changing and lately I’ve been thinking about where exactly that even is for me.
Days are getting shorter. Nights are getting cooler. There’s no way to avoid the fact that it’s autumn and summer is over. Luckily, I had this cozy Fila crop top to help with the transition from my barely there outfits of summer to layered looks for fall.
IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! Let’s party!
New year, who dis?
I know I said here that I’m not into New Years Resolutions and I’m still not into the idea of them but I’m a sucker for goal-setting and self improvement and the start of a new year just feels like the right time to look at life, see where I’m at, and what I’d like to work on.
This time of year can be so crazy! Holiday parties at work and family festivities galore. This is the season for socializing and we all wanna look our best but the last thing anyone wants is to be stuck in the mall looking for a cute outfit among herds of other shoppers. Don’t worry, boo. I got you. I’ve put together a four part series to help you slay the holidays. The best part about it is you can get each look from just one store so you can get in, get out, and get back to what matters…
Do you have an outgoing, energetic personality? Have you ever danced on a tabletop? Does your hotline stay blinging? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions then this look is for you.
