Geared Up : Denim Jacket + Camouflage Pants

geared-up1

Since my cooking class at the Dirty Apron last week, I’ve been inclined to learn more cooking on my own at home. In the past week I tried out a few easy recipes that I found on YouTube: Spaghetti Carbonara, Fettuccine Alfredo, and Butter Chicken – to list a few. There’s still plenty of room for me to improve, but fortunately there’s been no disaster yet! Everything I’ve cooked has tasted decent and hasn’t caused any food poisoning…haha. If you have any more recommendations for easy recipes, I’d really appreciate if you could leave me the link!

Vancouver had some pretty intense rain for the past few days, so I spent most of my weekend running errands and doing work around the house. I did manage to have brunch at Cork & Fin with my designer friend Tenille though – she’s participating in a fashion show next month and it was so cool to hear about her plans and accomplishments!

Thank God it’s Friday, and to all who celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival yesterday, I hope you had a good time! No moon cake for me this year, but that’s ok – I’ll save my calories for Thanksgiving back home next month.

4 Fall 2013 Pantone Colors + Ways to Wear Them

Every season I refer to the Pantone Color Report to find out what colors are trending. This seasonal report gives me some insight in regards to what colors to focus on, what old pieces I should pull out again, and also what I can expect to see in stores. I personally wouldn’t force myself to like or buy Pantone colored pieces just because, but knowing current trends can make dressing up and blogging a more thoughtful and creatively challenging task.

For this Fall, we have a unisex colour palette as men and women share almost the exact same colours. As usual for this season, the Fall 2013 colour palette features mainly earthy and neutral tones with a few bolder colors. Here are 4 looks with Fall 2013 Pantone colours that I’ll be sporting this season:
