An office appropriate fall outfit. What I wore on October 1st and a sad goodbye

An office propriate fall outfit

A fall outfit: Poutine and Prada fall 2019 Aritzia Michael Kors Sam Edelman

Well, it’s October. Fall is officially upon us. I’m scraping the frost off my car in the morning and the air is starting to smell like snow. On the positive side – it’s time for office appropriate fall outfit planning!

I found this Michael Kors skirt at a consignment shop last week for a mere $25! I was so excited and immediately started planning all the great office appropriate fall outfits I would be able to create with it. On this day I paired it with a slim fitting black turtle neck and ankle boots. As I was throwing on my trusty leather jacket I spied this scarf hanging in the back of the closet and decided to wind it around my neck a few times to finish off the look and keep me warm. I liked the resulting look.

The Sweater Vest

The sweater vest: Poutine and Prada

The piece I wanted but didn’t buy

For about a year and a half I’ve been wanting to add a knit tank top (sweater vest? sleeveless sweater?) to my wardrobe. I’d taken note of a few I like, most of them from Aritzia. Something like this was what I had in mind. I never pulled the trigger for a few different reasons. I like Artizia’s clothes but I think they are ridiculously over priced, sometimes I have trouble with the sizing (big boob problems, le sigh), and most recently, they are not ethical.

Everlane Shirred Silk Shirt – A Review

Welcome to another Everlane review! In the past I’ve stayed away from delicate fabrics such as silk and cashmere. I was worried that I would not be able to properly wash them (we do not have access to reliable dry cleaning where I live) and end up ruining the garment. Recently, I’ve decided that life is short and if I want to wear silk and cashmere then I am going to wear silk and cashmere. Lack of dry cleaning facilities be darned, I’ll hand wash! I’d been eyeing up Everlane’s silk shirts for several months so I was delighted when the chance to try out their Shirred Silk Shirt came up. I ordered it in black because I did not want to tempt the fates with a lighter colour.

Moto Girl: my love affair with moto jackets

Coats and Jackets

Coats and jackets have long been a favourite wardrobe item of mine. My collection is rather large and includes winter coats, faux fur, a Yukon parka, jean jackets, trenches, suede, and my leather jacket, which is one of my most prized possessions. If you challenged me to pick a favourite style I think I would have to go with moto jackets for a few different reasons. They are versatile, a bit edgy, and suit my body type – I have long legs and a short torso. Moto jackets hit at just the right spot near my waist.
