My Calvins

I’ve never been so happy to see the end of a year come. 2016 was rough, emotionally for me, and the last few weeks I’ve spent focused on my health and wellness, which will continue through into 2017 and hopefully make it my most successful year. Thank you for all of the love and support this past year!

It’s getting to be that confusing transitional time of the year, when not only am I dying to wear my new (and old) fall pieces, but also am exhausted by the summer options. The days are still so hot, and it’s impossible to be layering knits and textures yet. So, I’m left with getting creative, and finding new ways to wear my fall favourites, early.

I’ve folded down a vintage dress shirt, that is a little big on me, and tucked in the collar. Then I tied the hanging sleeve with the bottom of the shirt, giving it that belted look, creating a very on-trend and updated asymmetrical top. Paired with simple culottes and my trusty mules, I’ve styled a classic look with an updated twist.

I realized recently, that I don’t really do basic well. I mean I can put together a very casual or simple outfit and rock it with confidence, I just feel my personal best wearing bright colours and bold prints. For this reason, I’ve fallen in love with Toronto native designer Tanya Taylor. Based out of New York, her playful patterns excite my eyes and have jumped right into my heart.

If rocking a head-to-toe printed ensemble is too daring for you, try one bold piece at a time. A striking colour or breath-taking print, can add so much to an outfit.
