For my entire life I have been a perpetual lover of summer… enjoying beach days, cut off denim, Starbucks Refreshers, maxi skirts/dresses, barely there bikinis and vibrant colours – I mean, what’s not to love, right? However, I feel that I am slowly warming up to the idea of fall. That is, if I actually get to experience the season properly. Being a Torontonian, I have become all too accustom to frigid cold fronts entering immediately after Labor Day weekend and instead of being able to enjoy the gradual change of seasons with crisper air allowing for the ever so desirable layering effect, eternity scarfs, fur vests etc, I am usually given very chilly weather conditions which have me dreading the inevitable occurrence of snow, yuk! Seeing as though we are expected to have somewhat of an Indian Summer this year, I am now looking forward to fall with vengeance and gearing up to unnecessarily expand my closet with what I feel are essential pieces. A few things on my autumn wish list; the perfect leather pant, chunky/oversized sweaters, collegiate blazer, bold statement accessories, jewel –toned denim, velvet loafers and fur, fur, fur! The hunt begins tonight as I attend Toronto’s “Fashion Night Out” extravaganza.
