contrast denim.

Hi loves! Hope your October has started off on a great note so far!

Although sweater weather and October should seemingly go hand in hand, that does not seem to be the case this year in Canada! The mornings are chilly and often consist of me layering on 10 different sweaters and bitterly wiping frost off my car at 8am, but then the afternoons seem to warm right up to the point where a bare-it-alone tee is necessary! I will never understand the complex phenomenon that is Canadian weather (seriously!!). So, this particular fashion post comes on the brink of summer transitioning into fall and could totally be layered for cooler weather in the coming months with a cute duster or chunky bootie.

Now onto the look…..

The second I saw these pants hanging in Forever 21 I knew I had to have them! The contrast and side stripe trend has been everywhere the last few months but I just couldn’t seem to bring my girly self to rock a sporty snap-style track pant (maybe one day…). So when I saw these side-stripe denim jeans I knew this was the perfect way to try out the trend and still stay true to my uber feminine style. These jeans are the perfect mix of sporty chic and I can’t get enough of them! I glammed it up with a silk ruffle sleeveless top but for the fall I will totally be pairing them with chunkier knits and long layers.

These nude slides are also one of my new go-to’s! I tend to gravitate towards fancy prints and colours when it comes to shoes (uh hello embroidery) but I seem to constantly go back to these ones when my outfit is already enough. They match with everything, are super comfy and still professional enough to wear to my business-casual day job. Perfection!

That’s all for now. I hope all my Canadian loves are looking forward to the long weekend just around the corner! 🙂
