OOTD - Military + Leopard


According to Google, this week is to be Toronto's last week of late summer weather and then we're into the moderate temperatures for Fall. Although I'm sad to see summer go, I'm pretty excited to change up my wardrobe for the season and that starts with breaking out my boots and jackets. Oh how I love boots, specifically pointy-toe heeled booties. I don't find myself reaching for heels in the summer too often, but as soon as you slap a heel on a boot then I'm all over it  - weird, right? Pairing my favourite fall booties with a military jacket and a leopard scarf makes me excited for Fall.  Summer, who?  If you need me, I'll be shopping for more boots.





Dress + Jacket - Aritzia, Booties - Forever 21
Backpack - Rebecca Minkoff, Scarf - Zara




In terms of practicality, I really don't think you could get any more practical or comfortable than a backpack. I'll admit, I didn't warm up to the trend right away but as soon as I received this Rebecca Minkoff leather Julian backpack my mind was officially changed. I especially love this bag for my walking commute to work, as well as while traveling. You can definitely expect to see this backpack making an appearance in my upcoming trip to New York.



Are you excited for Fall? What items do you look forward to the most for the cold weather?  Let me know!

  5. Love your style Joelle! I was wondering if you would be able to do a post on how to be office appropriate, but still fashionable. I have finally finished as a student and am entering the "real world." I don't want to appear bland in my new setting, but also don't want to get dinged for dressing appropriately. What are your style tips and/or suggestions?

    Much love xx

    1. Thanks you so much for your sweet words Kassandra. That is SUCH a great idea for a post! I know that when I started working in an office environment, I struggled with dressing appropriate for corporate without looking too dull. I'll get working on the post - thank you for your feedback! xx
