Halloween in Your Closet: Amy Pond

Halloween Amy Pond Doctor Who

Happy Friday everyone! There's less than a week before Halloween and I haven't bothered to buy a costume. So.... what's a girl to do? Better yet, what's a girl who blogs about the clothes in her closet to do?

Ranger Hat and Thigh Highs

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday!

Thigh high socks are a great autumn staple, as I previously mentioned. Pairing them with a pair of black boots or pumps are my makeshift thigh high boots, as I haven't found the perfect pair. I have this internal fight between quality over quantity or price, and  I'm torn between shelling out the big bucks for a nice leather pair, or grabbing something more affordable. I know that if I'm going to wear them often, a quality pair is definitely my go-to despite the price, but how often would I really wear thigh high boots? What do you guys think - do you prefer to buy quality or would you rather go for the cheaper price tag in hope of buying other items?

Five Ways to Transition to Fall

Fall to Summer, Trench Coat, Layering

Hey everyone!
 As someone who tends to wear only skirts and dresses, it can be a bit difficult to make the transition from summer to fall, let alone winter. However, over the years, I've gotten it down to an art (for me at least), and without totally overhauling my wardrobe. That, and I've probably just grown immune to the Calgary cold - I''m crazy enough to be in bare legs until the end of October at least. When there is snow on the ground and it doesn't melt by afternoon, I'll officially relent to the gods of cold weather.

Boyfriend Jeans for Fall

Boyfriend Jeans, Fall Fashion, Michael Kors, H&M, Zara, gap, asos

Okay, pseudo boyfriend jeans. I have this issue, where I can't find the perfect pair, as none of them seem to fit right! I always end up with something that is far too large, or too tight. And by too large, I don't mean the whole boyfriend wears these too large, I mean one size will fit like regular jeans, and the next size up will be falling off me. I can't seem to win, so compromise it is!

Idle Days in Lace and Leather

As the weather gets cooler, I've begun to transition from my summer wardrobe to my fall version. There's frost on the ground in the morning, but by noon, it's still warm enough to get away with skirts and bare legs. What's a girl to do?  Layer up of course.
 To be perfectly honest, I make very few changes as the chill rolls in - I just add a few different staple items to my summer wardrobe. Read on for a few of my tips (I'll have a whole post with my favourite transitional items next week).

Cropped in Autumn

Who's crazy enough to wear a crop top in the crisp fall weather? Me. I definitely got a few weird looks wearing this to the park today. With the leaves changing . colour, crop tops aren't the most practical thing to be wearing, and needless to say, I got a few stares and cheers.

I bought this top about a week ago on sale at Urban Outfitters. I couldn't resist the snake print (I'm obsessed) on it, and immediately thought of how well it would pair with this bright blue skirt. I think the key to wearing crop tops is to pair it with something high-waisted.

To make this outfit a bit more modest, I added a navy blazer. It looks surprisingly professional, and if I ever work in a creative (rather than corporate) industry, this would definitely be a go-to outfit for me.

Sorry for the not so great quality of the photos. Krystal and I were playing around with a telephoto lens in semi-low light and screwed up the ISO.

Autumn Leaves

Fall Fashion

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons. Beautiful colours, crisp weather perfect for layers, and all the baking and tea I can handle (because baking in the middle of summer makes the house very hot)!

Last Days of Summer

RIP summer. The warm days are over, as sad as that is. These photos were from a week ago, when Calgary was still having a bit of an Indian summer.

Rick Owens Spring/Summer 2014

I recently stumbled upon a few photos of the Rick Owens Spring/Summer 2014 show via the Sartorialist as I don't normally follow Owens during Paris Fashion Week. The photos I looked at didn't look like a regular fashion show, but illustrated a lot of movement, contemporary models, and some fierce (and I don't mean Tyra Bank fierce) expressions.
