Grey & Pink aren’t the immediate colour palette that come to mind when we think of fall colours. However, when an outfit comes together like this you wear it and you smile.

Grey jeans are a great denim option and they can be just as challenging to find as blue jeans. These DH3 from Mark’s have great stretch and are affordable (here).

What’s great about fashion is we have options and we can mix and match brands and prices without any guilt or thought. Great style doesn’t come with an infinite bank account but an infinite imagination.

I have always loved Marks and Spencer clothing but it’s not like I can go whenever I want since I live in Canada and the stores are in the United Kingdom. I recently decided to order a few pieces online for a few reasons – great selection, there was a sale, NO DUTY, prices include tax (that’s right no adding tax on top of the total) and reasonable shipping costs. Now sizing was going to be tricky – M&S product is British Sizing. Since I own a few pieces from Karen Millen and Reiss (two British brands) I used that as my measure. I wear a UK 10 (coats and blouses) or 12 (dresses & skirts).

Marks and Spencer is having a sale right now. Use the code YESPLEASE and enjoy 20% off your purchase. There are exclusions but this skirt is not one of them.

This fishtail skirt was a must for one reason – the shape. I don’t own anything like this and I love it. I decided to style it for more of a corporate look. I kept everything neutral but you could easily add a bright coloured blouse/sweater to mix things up.

I also like a sleek coat with the skirt. I don’t want to take away from the flounce of the skirt so style wisely.

When I saw these photos for some reason the lyrics from Beyonce’s song Formation came into my head “I twirl on them haters”. The dress has great movement and really looks great when you start to twirl in it.

The dress is by Croatian Designer, Alex Dojcinovic, who’s brand is called LeiLou. This dress is the Amelia.  Croatia has lots of creative and talented female designers and every year I visit I always purchase a few pieces from some of these amazing designers. If you ever get the chance to visit this amazing country hit up some of the local fashion. You won’t be disappointed.

Jeans are a wonder – you can wear them for the most casual of activities like running errands or taking a gaggle of children on a school trip and then they magically transform into the perfect sexy pants to wear out on a night with your best girlfriends or that special someone. They really are the superhero of pants. Jeans from Mark’s have all those powers at locations across Canada.

Mark’s offers you so much choice at great prices you can’t go wrong. My blog and my Instagram account (here) is proof of how much I love their jeans.

What I’m Wearing:

DH3 Long Sleeve Cold Shoulder Mock Neck Sweater

In The Video:

Levi’s Slimming Straight Jeans
DH3 Mia Skinny Jeans
Silver Suki Jeans
Silver Elyse Jeans
Denver Hayes Hanna Jeans
Denver Hayes Mia Barely Boot Jeans

I hate playing favourites but the DH3 Mia Skinny in grey is the PERFECT grey jean. Great stretch and that colour is what I’ve been searching for. Not a grey jean person, grab the distressed pair. The best part about the distressed person is that when you bend down don’t worry about them ripping more (I know its happened to lots of us like me) the stretch will ensure they keep their shape and the threads stretch with you!

Happy Denim Shopping!

I have been looking for a leather/faux leather midi skirt for a while and this one from Zara is perfect. This button front skirt is classic but in the faux leather it can be more. I always like more, I always want more.

If you follow me on Instagram (here) then you may have noticed I wore this sequins skirt to the opening night of Nordstrom at my local mall Sherway Gardens. Sequins is not forgiving. If the item is not cut properly or if it is too tight it shows off everything in the wrong way – exaggerating size and shape. This J.Crew sequins skirt is very flattering and makes for a great party skirt.

I decided to pair it with an understated crew neck sweater to make the skirt shine and become the main attraction. This created a sophisticated and understated look with sequins which is so hard to achieve and sounds silly even as I write it. I think I accomplished the look I was going for.

The colour is that perfect rose gold and doesn’t feel trendy.

Outfit Details: Skirt, J.Crew (here, tall here, here & here) I’ve included other retailer links because this skirt is selling out fast || Sweater, Zara (similar, here & here; short sleeve option here) || Shoes, Ferragamo (old but great options here, here, here & mid range here & here) || Clutch, Chanel

In case the skirt is sold out I have found great options in black, silver & green or silver.

I love this twist front dress from Zara. Shirt dresses are hard for me to wear, the proportions are always off for me. This Zara dress fit perfectly and the colour is much richer in real life then in the photos. I paired yellow shoes with the stripes to add colour and makes it more interesting. The shoes are old from Banana Republic.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
