Print mixing
I picked out this particular outfit from my instagram feed to share with you all, my blog readers, since some my outfits or posts there may or may not make it to the blog. This was taken on the terrace where i have been hanging out a lot lately. I think it is important to stop for just a second, look around you, take in every moment and breathe. The world is a beautiful place, don't you think?
It was a very beautiful day in Toronto so i whipped out this print mix to appreciate everything!

Sporty Look
As the strong influence of sports on fashion continues, my love for sporty outfits also continues. I have to say, i am even more intrigued by it lately than before. Especially seeing how the fashion world has taken it, and put all kinds of spin on it. By the way, i am totally into it, and did i tell you i love it? I am sporty (okay, maybe not so much anymore), but at least i can incorporate it into my everyday outfits. If there is anything that brings the world together and people out of the comfort of their homes, it is sports.....and fashion. Now when those two worlds collide, anything can happen. In my case, good things :).

There was a big soccer game here in Toronto on Friday at the BMO field. Coincidentally, while i was shooting this outfit there were tons of fans out and about on the streets in their blue BMO adidas jerseys watching me as i shoot. I am sure they probably thought, why is she not wearing blue??? Duh.

Hehehe.

Err, well, sorry, but you should be on my colorful team instead :). I had no clue there was a game that day.

Since i  love prints, patterns and colorful outfits, i decided to style my orange and yellow Adidas jersey with a yellow tank top to match and a patterned skirt. These colors were built around colors on the skirt as you can see. Black pumps and bag to help tone down the colors just a bit. It almost feels like i could wear this outfit just about anywhere - Office, lunch date, errands, meetings and more!!

ASYMMETRIC PEPLUM TOP
As the summer kind of weather continues, i decided to take a plunge. Actually my back did. I often shy away from low back tops or dresses because the first thing that crosses my mind is, do i wear it with or without a bra? Preferably with. This top was also a concern, but the overlapping low back, the asymmetrical hemline and that bow, yes, that bow won me over. Luckily, after loosening my bra straps all the way, it was able to go just as far as where the plunge ends so it didn't really show....much. Phew! And that is just another thing i found out about Calvin Klein T-Shirt bras. Anyway, it is not very often you see a peplum top with a low back and a bow on the back, but even cuter is the fact that animal print comes across as a strong or intense print, but that bow softens it and i really like that a lot.

Meanwhile, i stumbled into this cool looking all black truck in Liberty Village parked in between two buildings and i just figured this would probably show the top in a more different light -Soft and tough.

Leather on leather outfit
Just when you all thought my kitty cat pants were dead. It makes a grand entrance!

We had a remarkable weather here in Toronto today. It felt like summer in fall, but I was in the mood for an all black outfit. Temperatures were high and the sun shining so brightly it would have made even you smile, yes, you :), but i still always have my doubts, especially when it comes to the weather in fall. Just because you know.... it is fall and nothing is promised. In the snap of a finger that beautiful weather i was talking about a second ago, could change to titanic rain and chills. So i tried to be a little more prepared while i was out.

On a day like this, i had to play the "When in doubt" card -Wear black. Besides, it is easy to wear black all day without a fuss, but even more relaxing is knowing it is faux leather that isn't too warm and with just a wipe you can get off any kind of stain on it. So what did i do? I layered. I layered with all leather everything. Wore my little black leather dress over my little skinny kitty cat knee pants and a sleeveless leather vest. All that faux leather begs to keep my arms free at least.

RETRO STYLE INSPIRED OUTFIT: PRINT AND PATTERN MIX
There is something about retro outfits or vintage pieces that just bring out the lady in you...and it doesn't even have to always be a dress.

I know this outfit is borderline soccer mom look, but what is wrong in a soccer mom being chic :)? I have my days as a mom where i just don't want to dress up, but a lady in vintage- Oh yeah! A modest and simple look with a vintage flair.

The first time i  featured this pair of  retro style pants on the blog, i styled it with a green crop top, but this time the top is quite the opposite. Although, it also has some green on it, i just couldn't resist.

Now that it is officially fall, i hope you all indulge in some colorful fall inspired outfits. I am! Have a nice day everyone!

DIY PERFECTLY DISTRESSED KNEE CAP DENIM
 <Tweet>: Denim keeps proving it has more than nine lives. It so happens it also has that chic factor.

This is the thing about me, i get bored with my clothes after a pretty good while of wearing them. Mixing, matching, remixing again, and again, and i am done. Some i may have worn so many times on the blog i can hear you all saying, pleeeeaase not again. Others are just so tired they need to be burned. The cool thing about denim is, they are great potential DIY pieces that can be cut short, bleached, slashed, ripped or distressed, studded, laced and cuffed for some cool factor. One of the ways i try to get just another life out of my clothes, especially denims, is by wearing my DIY hat and just trying to find a way to add some chic factor to it. Hence a perfectly distressed DIY knee cap- Simple and chic.

What You Need:
1. An old pair of denim pants.
2. A blade or a pair of scissors.
3.Washable crayola.
4. A small flat board
WHAT YOU NEED FOR A DIY PERFECTLY DISTRESSED KNEE CAP DENIM

Step 1: While wearing the denim pants, i marked where i wanted slashed on the knee caps.
Step 2: Slide the flat board from the waist down into the legs of the pants. It serves as a surface between the denim while cutting.
Step 3: Cut about 1.5 inches across the marked line on the knee caps.
Step 4: Wash in the washer and then dry it in the dryer just once.

Tips:
1. Try practicing with an old pair either from a thrift store or one you are willing to get rid of first before doing it on your favorite denim pants.
2. The smaller the cut the better because it only gets wider with time.

So of course this is what the pair of denim pants looked like before....

And now after ripping it perfectly at the knees, this is the result...
