White Out!

White Out!

White is definitely my #1 choice for spring/summer. It’s refreshing and crisp and screams clean. In the warmer months I’m often found wearing white jeans or shorts with white tanks. I find it makes my usually pale skin look a … Continue reading

W2W: to a Small Theatre Production

W2W: to a Small Theatre Production

Tonight I’m meeting up with a close friend for dinner and drinks and then going to see Race (starring the dreamy Jason Priestley). I always struggle with what to wear to a theatre production as I usually feel extremely overdressed. … Continue reading

W2W: To the Market

Every Friday, I go to the market with my boyfriend for breakfast. I usually work on Saturdays teaching at a heritage Saturday school and never get a chance to attend the farmer’s market, as it is only run on Saturdays. This Saturday, I don’t have to teach because of the March Break, and am looking forward to a morning at the market.  The St. Lawrence Market in Toronto is one of my favourite places to visit. I can remember being there as a child during the holidays, munching away at the free samples. They’ve got great meat, fruits and vegetable vendors and great places to eat (Buster’s Sea Cove, being my favourite). I find that it’s always best to be comfortable when at the market and to bring eco-friendly shopping bags. My go-to market outfit is almost always boyfriend jeans, loafers, sneakers or moccasins, and a comfy t-shirt, tank, long-sleeve or sweatshirt (depending on the weather). Here’s at look at what I’d wear:To Market

It’s in Your Jeans

Growing up, I wore leggings and sweatpants often…that still hasn’t changed. I’m still not a huge fan of jeans. I find most are very stiff and I prefer those that have a worn-in feeling. Over the years, I’ve found my favourite brands and know what style works for me. I have a very athletic build thanks to years of playing field hockey, swimming, softball and kickboxing. I don’t really have curves at all. My thighs and calves are muscular and my bum is fairly flat. Just picture a rectangular shaped body with perky boobs. I’m not very confident in my skin, so I hope in the next two months that will change (hoping I stick to my healthy eating and fitness plan).

My go-to jean brands are: J Brand, Hudson and Habitual. I like to wear mid-rise jeans as they are more flattering than low-rise for my body type.

Here is my jean wish-list for spring/summer.

J Brand Aidan in Lakespur

I love the boyfriend jean and how amazing they look when rolled up and paired with crisp white shoes or with loafers.

I love a bold black, mid-rise jean. They can be dressed up with black booties, pointed-toed pumps or dressed down with flats or flip-flops.

Habitual Grace High Rise Skinny Stretch Jeans

I adore this colour. It’s a must have for spring. It’s feminine and dispenses a refreshing vibe.

Can’t go wrong with these deep black jeans. I even love the shoes they’re paired with.

Hudson Bennett Jeans

Hudson Tilda Mid-Rise Straight

I love mid-rise jeans and especially these straight-leg ones.

White pants are timeless. White jeans, from one of my favourite brands, a must-have.

If you check out the Bay on Queen Street or at Yorkdale, they’ve got a clearance on a variety of designer brand jeans. I just bought my first pair of 7 for all mankind jeans for $50! (They were additional 50% off of the lowest ticketed price!)

What are your go-to jean brands? Any recommendations?
