Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend?

Toronto is covered in snow and I had to stay home since I was sick for a few days. The temperatures are extremely low which makes it very difficult for us to take the photos. I am Spring dreaming and can't wait for a little bit of sunshine.

As for the outfit, I am wearing a super cute combination of a jewelled beanie and wide leg pants. I love how the orange shoes and fuschia tights are peeking under my pants just enough to elevate and bring this outfit to a whole new level.

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

 Shoes: Sam Edelman (also love these and these)

I have come to realize that I have a growing obsession for fur and this great vest which I borrowed from my mom is absolutely beautiful. 
I love the shade of it and it makes me feel so glamorous when I'm wearing it.

For an edgy-chic ensemble, I have paired it with aubergine skinny pants and sky-high-heeled peep-toe booties.

How do you like it?

PJ STYLE PANTS

While the Pajama trend seemed to be hotting up, I stayed away from it. The just-got-out-of-bed look simply didn't work for me at the time.

But because I think that it is never too late to try a trend if it is something that suits your style and you love, I bought these beautiful printed pj-style pants and decided to style them my way. I liked them mostly because they are tapered around the ankle and because of the tighter fit which makes the look less obvious.

I also think the key to pulling off this trend and not appearing like you’re out sleepwalking whilst at a dinner is to wear the PJs with heels.

Toronto is freezing cold at the moment even with the beautiful sunshine. It was -20C today!! I’m so over this weather already!
I reached out for my old and super cute aviator jacket which is going to keep me warm throughout the rest of the winter. 
Floral print skirt brings the high contrast to the masculine feel of the jacket and I love how these Zara leather boots boost my feminine appeal even more. 

Thank you so much for the reading and happy Wednesday!!

RED SONIA

I am usually not a big fan of monochrome outfits but that doesn't apply when it comes to dressing in red. I generally love all things colorful and red is certainly my favorite color.

This outfit would be just another simple one if it wasn't for this gorgeous fur stood and silver heels.
It's no secret that a good pair of shoes can really help dress up an outfit so I opted for these metallic pumps and transformed the look from so-so to so stellar.
And if you ask me silver is totally a neutral, and just about any outfit can use a bit more shimmer.

On my last trip to J.Crew I spotted this jacket and the moment it rested on me, I knew I was in love!
The masculine style and the color block did it for me more than anything else. Paired with olive green pants, I think it looks really great.

How do you like it?

INDIANA

You guys know how much I love animal print, so this stunner jacket is another great addition to my growing collection.
It beams enough elements of lux and style and it is by itself a statement. So I tried to keep the rest of the outfit laid back in order to draw the attention to my animal print.


But... When I added this fedora, the outfit immediately screamed "Indy!" :-)
Happy Monday everyone!

DREAMY

I have always been impressed with beautiful, dreamy photos shot with the back-lighting technique. Alex and I have never really tried shooting my outfits using this technique so we decided to give it a try.
Taking into consideration the fact that Alex is not a professional photographer and that he has somewhat developed a habit of shooting the way he thinks works the best, he was a bit resistant at first. And I was anxious.
I must say that I was not all that happy with the final results as most of the photos turned out blurry. I assume that like for any other skill or technique to be mastered one must take time and practice.
What do you think about these photos? Have you tried the back-light technique before? I am always trying to find a way to improve the quality of my photos so I would be very happy if you could share your tips and experiences with me.

Till next time.... Happy Friday everyone!

WARM & COOL

Dressed for the chilly weather I love how this suede camel-coloured coat with faux shearling provides some texture to this look and is as fashionable as it is cozy during the cold Winter months.
Teamed with white ripped jeans and leather ankle boots this coat looks effortlessly cool – love it!

MR. PEACOAT

Coat: J.Crew (similar options below) l Skirt: Zara (another great one here) l Bag: Calvin Klein (similar) l Shoes: H&M (also love these and these) l Jewelry: Banana Republic

I love versatile coats that look pulled together and flattering like this classic peacoat in a tailored fit. Its classic silhouette, which is also pretty unisex, is incorporated into modern fashion and stays in style for a long, long time. 
It can be dressed down with jeans and dressed up with a skirt and trousers for work. It won’t date, and wearing it unbuttoned provides ample “oversized trendiness” if you’re worried about looking too classic.
For this look I chose to wear it fully buttoned to showcase its shape pairing it with this amazing peplum skirt.

Do you like peacoats? How do you style them?
