Mirror in the Bathroom: Fall Fashion Parade
It was a busy weekend, capped off with a trip to Kitchener to see the relatives. I am writing this post in Southwestern Ontario thanks to the glory that is my new iPad mini. There is but one issue with this arrangement: I downloaded all the photos of my fantastic thrift shop finds to my desktop computer and therefore my planned bragging post will have to wait until Tuesday,
For some reason I have a bunch of blurry selfies that I will share instead. I hope you get some amusement from them.
Pictured above is an ensemble that I’m particularly fond of. iT’s an embroidered chambray blouse from Marks Work Wearhouse (it has an Isabel Marant vibe), drapery Old Navy pants, Adidas slides and an embroidered bag from Thailand. This photo is from October 3rd, hence the no socks.
A few weeks later and we’re already well into sweater weather. Here’s me wearing a pompon topped toque from the Dollarama, a blush pink punloved fron Joe Fresh from last year, a reversible green knit sweater from Joe Fresh and some rose gold plated jewels from my trip to New York.
I clearly have not mastered selfie face. I do like this combination of striped tunic top from Old Navy and grey merino wool Glenmuir v-neck that I got from Omega back in July.
I jumped the Blue Jays bandwagon this season for sure.
And while I still find it near impossible to watch a game live without getting cranky and bored, I do like getting dressed up to show my support for the sport. I already had my vintage Lorus Blue Jays watch, and I bought some Jays branded mechanical pencils which have quickly become my go to writing implement. But the pièce de résistance is this look. An oversized men’s Blue Jays tank top, an undersized textured cocoon cardi and a pair of properly fitted herringbone trousers.
I had written a much more thoughtful post about the effect Pinterest has had on my recent fashion choices but I lost that draft somehow and I’m too tired to attempt to rewrite. Just let it be known that I’ve been looking for a varsity jacket for a long time. I found one that fit my budget, but it didn’t fit right. I took it back to the Sally Ann to exchange and found exactly what I’d been looking for all along. And it was cheaper. So I bought this red Ohio State jersey to make up the difference.
The hat is the Dollarama beanie again. I stocked up and bought three because I love this style but I lose toques at an alarming rate.
