When in doubt, wear black!  Well, that’s usually my motto, but this season I’m saying yes to hues of grey!  Although we Vancovuerites will be seeing plenty of grey skys in our forecast, I’m embracing this shade to keep things cool and break up my common colour palette of black-on-black-on-black.  Sometimes black can feel a little intense – even unaproachable.  So to lighten things up, I’m showing you a few of my favorite staple pieces that you might want to incoporate in your wardrobe this season.

Wardrobe Details:

There’s something about a leather jackets that make me feel strong and uber cool, and this beautiful piece is no exception!  I scooped this up at Winners this summer $250. The brand is called Selected Femme ; a Danish based company.  Their design esthetic is very clean, modern and chic.  I will admit that when I saw durable, pebbled leather shell, I almost hesitated to buy it!  We were having such gorgeous weather at the time and shopping for Fall outerwear was the last thing on my mind.  I’m glad I came to my senses and purchased it because this is probably one of the best investments I’ve made.  It’s a timeless staple piece that will carry it’s weight for years to come.  My long sleeve top is from one of my favorite stores on the planet, Club Monaco.  This staple can be coordinated with both a casual and workwear enables, and is an ideal piece for layering.  Last but not least,  my slim fit jeans by JBrand.  I find that JBrand is a great fit for my curvy body.  The “Maria” cut features a skinny leg with a high-rise waist (Thank you!) and a slimming silhouette, through hips and legs, that holds its shape.

Don’t forget your mani!

I’m a regular at  the new Joyride Nail Salon, on W. 4th and Burrard, in Vancouver.  If you haven’t had a chance to experience it, you must!  It’s steps away from our Nadia Albano Style Inc headquarters, and Sadhbh (pronounced Sive) is my go-to gal for a great mani/pedi!  She’s been doing my nails since day one, and the entire team is lovely and extremely professional.  For this week’s post, I chose a two-tone grey combination; mostly because I liked both shades of grey and couldn’t decide on just one.
