Zara Black and White Coat




Skirt: Danier. Blouse: J.Crew. Coat: Zara. Shoes: Boutique 9 – on sale!. Handbag: Chanel. Sunglasses: ZeroUV.


Yesterday was the Toronto Blue Jays home opener game.  For you non-sports fans, the Blue Jays are Toronto’s Major League Baseball team.  Even though I’m not really a baseball fan, Justin is a huge Jays fanatic, so we end up watching a lot of baseball in our house.  Well . . .  Justin watches a lot of baseball while I usually take that time to read fashion magazines.


Justin was heading to the home opener last night, and decided to create a baseball themed dinner for us and his friend.  On the menu were “franks and beans” along with a yummy macaroni salad, but where the fun part comes in is that we also decided to have a blind hot dog taste challenge.  The two opponents were the Schneider’s Juicy Jumbos versus the Chicago 58 Lanky Frankys.  We tested them both plain and fully dressed with condiments in a bun.  To make it fair, we also filled out our own secret ballots so not to influence one another.  I know you’re all on the edge of your seats waiting to find out which wiener won. . .well, it was a clean sweep. .  .the Juicy Jumbos swept both categories, and were hands down our favourites.  We’ve now decided to make the hot dog challenge an annual tradition, and next year the Juicy Jumbo’s will go head to head with another challenger.  (I know. . . my life is pretty exciting. *Sigh*)


Now that I’ve bored you all with my hot dog story, we can chat a little bit about fashion.  I had my eye on this Danier leather skirt for a while, and finally picked it up when it went on sale.  I just love the black and white contrast, the faux-wrap, and the buttery soft leather.


In other exciting news, I am so honored to be featured on Style Elixir as Lauren’s Head Stylist for her Style Sessions fashion link up this week.  Please check it out, and also feel free to join the link up yourself!

    I never watch baseball, but I do like going to minor league games. They’re so relaxed, and if the weather’s nice, it’s a good excuse to drink outside 🙂
    Anyway, love the asymmetrical hemline of this skirt!

    You look amaaaaazing!! The coat and skirt together look like a really expensive suit, but the skirt also really looks great on its own. I also love your J.Crew blouse. I just ordered one in bright pink, and I can’t wait for it to get here. Congrats on being the Style Elixir stylist!

    I love those shoes. Your skirt could be quite serious but those shoes and the top make the whole outfit fun. I will also say this is quite “fashion-y” I could picture this outfit in Vogue.
