STRIPED JOGGERS

Athleisure at its finest.

The jogger has become a must-have item for street style fanatics and I’m finally board. With its skinny, elasticized ankle and casual-cool versatility, the jogger has become the trendy little brother of the O.G, sweatpants.

I was never a big sweatpants fan. I wear them in the house for comfort and only wear them out of the house on super cold days during the winter when I literally have nothing else to wear. In other words, sweatpants are my last resort. But, I will admit that the jogger has really grown on me and I finally found a few pairs that I’m happy to wear outside at any point. I think it’s the stripe on the side that takes it to the next level. That’s what drew me to this pair at Addition Elle. A little splash of red and I was all in. I loved that it also matched my striped bomber I bought from Boohoo. I was immediately drawn to the snaps on the sides and I’ve been trying to find something to pair it with. Enter the jogger.

My jogger-bomber combo is the epitome of streetwear and I had to finish off the outfit with a pop of white. I was eyeing this striped cropped sweatshirt at Forever 21 and decided to buy it. It was a nice contrast to the black and red and so comfortable. I’ll be living in this outfit for the rest of the year, for sure.

MUSTARD YELLOW DRESS

I’ve been waiting for this yellow mellow moment all year.

If I’m being honest, I’ve always loved the colour yellow. I have a little collection of yellow sweaters in my wardrobe and happily wear them as early as September when it’s socially appropriate to wear knit clothing again. I also have a few posts on my blog about wearing yellow (maybe once or twice) and as recently as this summer (when I declared yellow as the new pink). But, if you’ve been in any shopping mall lately you’ll have surely noticed that yellow is the colour of the season.

From deep mustard to a warm, golden yellow, there is a range of shades to choose from. I don’t really have a favourite but there is something to be said about mustard yellow in the fall. I got this lovely shift dress from Addition Elle and I absolutely love it on me. It makes my skin look extra glowy and is so easy to match with other colours. I mixed navy blue and a little pink into my outfit to show how versatile this shade is.

MELLOW YELLOW + MINI DONUTS

Despite the fact that I complained about the warm weather more than I enjoyed it, I kind of miss it a little bit. The temperatures in Toronto plummeted and now apparently we’re in fall. I’m more shocked than anything else because I had a couple more summer-friendly outfits planned. I’m also avoiding my seasonal trip down to the basement where I have at least half a dozen bins full of clothing. I’m excited to pull out a few of my beloved cardigans but I also just bought a new pair of sandals last week and now I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do. Actually, scratch that. I’ll still wear the sandals because they’re adorable.

My hesitation to embrace fall is largely due to the fact that I waited until now to share my photos from the CNE. It’s a family tradition to trek down to Exhibition Place at the end of the summer and spend the day consuming way too much food and being spun, propelled and launched into the air via all the insane rides the exhibition has to offer. It’s the best way to finish the summer break before all the students head back to school. I went with my sister a couple of times, mostly for mini donuts, but also for a mini photoshoot.
