Is it totally annoying if I say I felt like a million bucks in this outfit?  I usually don’t feel my “prettiest” in casual outfits or jeans, but there is something about this outfit that made me feel like I was invincible.  And that “something” was my coat.  I often get very passionate about my clothing purchases, and my thought is that if I don’t absolutely love something, then why would I buy it?  Well, this coat goes beyond “love” for me.  This might just be one of my all-time favourite pieces in my wardrobe. . . ever!  It’s actually too pretty for me to tuck away in my closet, and I’ve been hanging it on the outside of my closet door for the last month so I can stare at it every time I walk in there.

 

I purchased this floral stunner in January and was waiting for just the right moment to wear it.    Well, what better moment than Toronto’s World Mastercard Fashion Week!  And, what a good decision that was.  The day I wore this also marked the first time that anyone has ever asked to take a photo of my outfit.  Fun, right?!  My look was actually featured on the website of my favourite city magazine, Toronto Life!  So exciting!  Ummm, but please ignore the painfully awkward look on my face. . . you can tell I was completely uncomfortable yet overly thrilled during this moment.  Thank you, Toronto Life!

 

I wore this outfit to Day 4 of World Mastercard Fashion Week.  My favourite collection of that night was the Vawk Fall 2013 show.  Vawk is the luxurious ready-to-wear line by Sonny Fong, who was the winner of  Project Runway Canada Season 2.  The collection, titled “Nordic Fauna,” was inspired by Scandinavian minimalist design as well as classic winter hunting gear.  The coat below, with the sheer pleated side, was simply stunning. . . definitely a piece I would love to own.  Click here to see the entire Vawk Fall 2013 collection.

I’m taking a short break from my Fashion Week posts to share this outfit and guest post I’m doing today for the super sweet Tash at her blog, Style-Isle, while she is on vacation.  I must confess that styling this burgundy skirt with this bright pink coat was not my idea.  I copied this combination from a J.Crew ad. . . the very same ad where I first laid my eyes on this beautiful fuschia coat.  I already owned the skirt, but I knew that once I bought this coat I would definitely pair them together.

 

Speaking of a vacay, I’m pretty excited to be heading to Chicago this long weekend with my family for a few days of fun, great shopping and delicious food.  Heading to the Windy City for Easter has become a tradition for our family, minus my brother.  A weekend of shopping is not exactly what he considers to be “fun”.  Oh, boys. . . what do they know!?  I’m also looking forward to indulging in what I think is the best cheesecake out there, after my Mom’s of course.  I think I’ve tried nearly every flavour of cheesecake on The Cheesecake Factory’s menu, my favourite’s being the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake and the Lemon Raspberry Cream. . . yummmm!

 

Today, I’m also linking up with the fabulous Lauren at her blog Style Elixir, for her Style Sessions series.  Thank you to both Tash and Lauren for allowing me to share my looks on your blogs!

Longer Days

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Did you do anything exciting?  Mine was pretty low key, but my favourite part of this past weekend was the beginning of Daylight Savings Time.  Yay!!  The start of DST means that Spring and Summer are on their way, bringing with them sunshine and warm temps.  It will be especially nice to get home from work tonight and actually have the sun still shining (although it’s raining right now, so fingers crossed that the sun will be out).  I am so ready for Winter to be over!
