#SESTYLE: Fall into Sunday Funday

After the past long and extremely hot summer we’ve had it’s nice to have a few cooler days lined up. Fall is a season filled with changes and colours for both the weather and our wardrobe. One thing I love about fall is how quickly and easily we can swap our sandals for booties and florals for plaid.

When planning your weekend wardrobe be sure to think comfy and cozy, especially if your planning on simply lounging around. When selecting your comfy weekend pieces remember not to limit yourself to sweats and hoodies, try picking out clothes that you can look good in while feeling comfy, even if your planning on spending your weekend outdoors.

When dressing for fall it’s important to always remamber that the weather is constantly changing, whether your planning on staying indoors or out, it won’t hurt to bring along a sweater (or a plaid shirt). From finger nail to distressed jeans, it’s all in the details this fall and adding a few extra to any look will be the perfect way to tie your weekend trends together.

An ESSIE nail can change a lot in a show, the finish, the design and the colour really do make a difference between shows.

Mikael Kale-33

World MasterCard Fashion Week kicked off day one with a unique runway show by Mikhael Kale that brought a mix of colourful and shimmery looks. From textiles to embroidery and layering to patterns, the collection brought a stunning and unique look to day one, having fashion and beauty lovers turning heads and not only were the pieces unique and different, the runway was too.

The runway set up was sure to have people turning heads and capturing great shots as the models made their way off the runway and through the rows, creating a more interacting and fun way for Mikhael Kale to show off the intricate detailing in each and every one of his pieces.

Being a very detail oriented person there were so many that I absolutely fell in love with in the collection. The removable white collar was a great detail that can be added onto any blouse or t-shirt, I found it to be a great detail that was paired with a number of pieces in the collection. The colours in the show were absolutely jaw dropping getting us ready for warmer weather and more colourful fashion options. It is still important to add a little colour to a fall/winter collection, especially with our Canadian winters being so long sometimes a little colour goes a long way.
