Ottawa Street Style: Black & White with a dust of Pink for Fall

The weather has been cooling down these last few days, and finally I had an excuse to wear my new pink wool coat from Old Navy. I don’t see it online, so I apologize in advance 🙁 I guess it’s an in-store only item.

I felt pretty sharp and comfy going into work today, especially for a Monday morning! I only hope to be this inspired when I wake up tomorrow!

Outfit details

I wore a white shirt and black quilted joggers from H&M and my new Ecco kicks! My purse is from Danier (:( sad face because they are now closed) my shades are Bailey Nelson, and my necklace is from Canadian jewelry designer Biko, purchased at Vincent this weekend!

A big thank you to Alan Wainwright Photography for taking these pics!

Loafers and Polish Collab for #BacktoSchool with Plato’s Closet Barrhaven

A few weeks ago, Barrhaven Blog posted the “Back to School Fashion Tips” article that I was featured in. I won this photo shoot on Loafers and Polish, where Jenn, the editor, styled 3 outfits for me and my good friend Karine at Plato’s Closet in Barrhaven.
My Facebook feed today was loaded with First Day of School pics, so I thought it would be appropriate to share the rest of the awesome photos that Kristy, of Kristy Chapman Photography, took that day!

I used to love getting my first day of school outfit ready. One that I remember particularly well, was my grade 8 Clueless inspired short plaid kilt with lace up boots! I must dig up a photo… (to be continued…)

By the way, I haven’t had my makeup done in over 10 years, since I am also a makeup artist and usually do my own work for shoots. I had the pleasure this time of sitting back in the chair and letting Toni Rose take the lead!

Look 1- Sporty & Feminine

Look 2- Edgy Cool

Look 3- Effortlessly Chic
