OOTD - The Perfect Jeans For Fall With hr2


They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes it's what goes on behind the scenes that really tells a story. Take these photos for example; Brian and I (well more me, let's be honest) thought that it would be cool to snap a few pictures by the Toronto waterfront with the gorgeous skyline. Simple, right? After fighting through downtown traffic, getting trampled by hoards of club-goers (this spot is by Cabana, one of Toronto's most popular day-clubs) and nearly being blown away by the wind, we were over it. I think the expression on my face says it all. Thankfully I had my new Hudson jeans that I got from hr2 to keep me comfortable through the whole ordeal.

I was asked to come into hr2, an outlet for the high-end luxury department store Holt Renfrew, to pick out a pair of jeans. You guys know that I'm not typically a pants person - plus being petite means that jeans are a bit of a nightmare for me, so I was skeptical that I would find anything.  Little did I know that I would actually have a hard time choosing between pairs!  The selection of denim for Fall at hr2 is amazing, and the staff were so helpful which is nice to see for a high-end retailer. I finally settled on these black Hudson jeans with some cool knee-details. Regular over $350.00 CDN, these jeans were marked down to $95.00, which would allow me to keep my record of never paying over $100.00 for jeans. I may turn into a denim-head yet, and I'll definitely be looking to hr2 to help build my collection.

What do you guys think? Are you a jeans-girl, or do you prefer dresses? Have you ever had a photoshoot that has turned into a comedy of errors?  Let me know!

  1. Those jeans look fabulous! In the summer, I'm all about the skirts and dresses, but come fall, I wear jeans all the time. They're perfect with boots, cardigans and scarves :)

  2. I like the back detail on your top. And yeah, pant shopping is so damn hard for us petites. I have to look at either stores that carry short, petite, or cropped styles. And girl, messed up shoots all day! Last time, I just found out last minute that my shoot locations were CLOSED and the timing was whack so I had to rush.

  3. Oh I definitely know that struggle! It can be so awkward too, one time we were shooting and this girl walked by and made some really mean comments about fashion blogging altogether. After that, difficult locations and weather is much more tolerable! The final result is gorgeous though, I really adore that outfit. Your denim is perfect and I love the top you styled with it!

  4. Joelle, I love the way you styled these jeans with a feminine top - it really balances out the edge and makes it so you! As always, you look beautiful!
