Leopard and Layers

Even though it’s still considered fall, Toronto is officially freezing and has a thick layer of snow covering basically everything. This outfit was shot a few weeks ago (at 31 weeks pregnant), when the temperatures were a bit more mild and ideal for light layers, rather than down parkas.

I love this layered look as an easy office to holiday party transitional outfit. Adding this adorable oversized asymmetrical sweater (now on sale) over one of my favourite body-con dresses, helped dress down the leopard, making it more appropriate for the office. This chunky knit is the perfect for the chilly season ahead and can be easily paired with jeans, leggings and dressed it up.

With this growing giant bump, I kept the dress unzipped and folded one of the sleeves down, tucking it into my bra (hidden by the sweater) which allowed for the off-the-shoulder slouchy look to be achieved.

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!

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.
