Pattern Play

wide leg striped pants, chanel inspired coat, Spring style

Toronto Fashion Week came and went at lightening speed. I mean I basically don't even remember it now that I am in full sugar coma mode from this weekend aka this -which I devoured!  This outfit was probably my most fun/eccentric outfit of the week. Dressing playful while still in my comfort zone, I paired a comfy pair of wide leg pants with a tweed, Chanel inspired, mini jacket. I love how the colours matched and how the pieces unexpectedly worked so well together! The patters are complementary and the soft fabric of the pants juxtaposes with the structured, sturdy fabric in the jacket. The jacket also has pearl embellishments and is lined which kept me toasty in and out of the tents and on our walk along King Street to scour out cocktails and to fulfill post-show hankerings (girls gotta eat!).

I seriously feel in love with both pieces separately and then paired them together and felt like the most sophisticated, girl boss around. Both pieces are from my fave shop, Lemonberry, and if you're looking for one of a kind pieces, go now! To take this outfit a step further, and really make it Fashion Week apropos, I sported these embellished Sam Edelmen pumps. They are grey and sparkly, which accented the outfit perfectly. The purpose of Fashion Week is to dress however you want, right? Do it up, take it down, just do whatever makes you feel your best.

What I'm Wearing:
Gentle Fawn pants (available at Lemonberry, similar)
Darling London coat (available at Lemonberry)
Sam Edelman pumps (similar, similar)
Rebecca Minkoff bag (similar)

What do you think? Do you pattern play for fun events, or keep it minimal and chic? 

Also, check out Toronto Life's article "Street Style: The best spring looks we spotted at Fashion Week". So excited to be included! I posted their shot from outside the tents below.
