I don’t care what my boyfriend says - I mean, I truly do honour his opinion and take what he says to heart but sometimes, he just doesn’t get my fashion sense - I love leather leggings. I always have loved leather leggings, especially Wilfred’s High Waisted Leather Leggings. They’re not something that can be pulled off with anything but I think they look best and the most casual with an oversized sweater. I don’t mean big, baggy and ugly. I mean oversized in an attractive and fashionable way. Leather leggings can be pretty edgy and a sweater brings down the edge a bit. T.Babaton’s colour blocked Kate Loose Knit Sweater pairs perfectly with the leather leggings. It’s loose fit keeps it comfy and it drapes perfectly over the higher waistline. I kept this look simple with a pair of over-the-knee brown riding boots and a structured J.Crew purse that has the same colour tone as the T.Babaton sweater.
I have to say, I hate when people walk around in baggy grey sweats and claim that they are only wearing them because they’re “super comfortable”. I never realized that comfortable and unfashionable were synonymous. Just because it’s Saturday, you have the day off, and you want to be comfortable doesn’t mean that you have to look like a hobo (hobo is not the new boho)!
I used to work at Aritzia and it’s been brutal since I quit - I mean, I’m totally in love with everything they have to offer, yet can’t seem to bite the bullet on that price tag. I have to admit though, they do have amazing pieces that are comfortable, yet fashionable (I know, gasp!). These Wilfred Lille Pants are made with a lightweight, drapey lyocell fabric in a robins egg blue colour, which is perfect for spring. These have a slightly higher waist, so it is easily paired with a body con tank. The Perfect-Fit tank from J.Crew is great for this - they come in so many colours and they’re cost effective, as well. Wilfred’s Flaubert Sweater is long and comfortable, yet still slightly fitted and definitely fashionable. You get the comfort of a sweater without looking like an absolute fashion disaster. Pair it with some tan brogues and you’re set for a casual and comfortable Saturday.
I’m looking out my window and it is currently snowing. Might I also add that it is April 23rd out and a month ago it was so hot I could have been working on my tan in my backyard. Anyways, the weather has me curled up under a blanket and channelling a little fall/winter inspiration. I always love wearing girly shorts, even in the winter - you just have to know how to rock it! I picked these high waisted silk shorts because they’re so light and flowy and remind me of spring textiles even when it’s not so hot out. I paired it with this Le Fou by Wilfred Masako Sweater - the multi-colour fabric and light wool is a perfect match for the black silk shorts. I layered a pair of slightly opaque black tights under the shorts for the chillier weather and kept the shoe simple with a pair of black suede booties. For a pop of colour, I matched a pink leather crossbody purse with a chain strap by MICHAEL Michael Kors - just the right size to hold the essential items!
