OOTD - Burgundy Platform Sandals


That dreaded F-word again: Fall.  Not that the weather in Toronto would give any indication that a change of season is on it's way, but I've been in an autumn state of mind.  A change of seasons is always the trickiest time in terms of dress, so what I like to do is to take familiar summer outfits and just switch out a few pieces for darker coloured items.  For example, a black t-shirt and choker can completely transform the look of white culottes; and can we talk about these shoes?  The platform on these burgundy beauties not only gives a retro-feeling, but also makes them incredibly comfortable to walk in.  If this is what we can expect from Le Chateau footwear for fall then I'm excited!

Culottes - Aritzia, Top - Dynamite (old)
Shoes - c/o Le Chateau, Bag - Chanel via Love That Bag




You spotted it: the cutest little Chanel mini.  Remember my post on how to purchase pre-loved Chanel? Since that blog post I couldn't get the iconic handbags out of my mind. Well the ladies at Love That Bag really came through (again) and I picked up this black patent Chanel rectangular mini with silver hardware - nearly impossible to find in-store and at a fraction of the retail price!  You guys, my days of purchasing designer handbags in-store may be over.  I'm hooked!



What do you guys think?  Are you into mixing summer staples with cooler-weather classics? Are you excited for fall, or still basking in the heat of summer?  Let me know!
