Happy Fall! I’ve found that the weather has been really odd this year – it has been unusually warm for this time of year. Anyone else feel the same way? When I got back to school in September, it was FREEZING for the first week and then all of the sudden it was like summer decided to come up for one last hurrah and to this day I still can’t believe the amazing weather we had in Montreal.

Anyways, I want to talk about pants…because I hate them. I get so tired of always wearing the same black jeans and I would rather wear a dress or a skirt. It’s just hard to be creative when winter starts rolling around and I’m not trying to look cute in freezing weather so…in those cases skinny black jeans are my best friend. BUT while the weather is still kind to us, I decided to venture out of my comfort zone.

These checked pants are actually very old. I found them when I went home for Thanksgiving and shopped my mom’s closet. I’m almost 100% sure she got these pants in the early 2000s but it amazes me that it’s so in style now. I see these pants everywhere and I can easily find almost the exact same pants in stores like Zara. Isn’t it funny that fashion trends come and go?

I fell in love with the pattern and style of the pants and they’re honestly perfect for fall! The material is heavy enough to keep your legs warm but it’s not too hot either. I paired these pants with a body suit from forever21 because if there’s one thing I hate, it’s tucking a shirt into pants or a skirt and having that little bulge of fabric around the stomach. Body suits are just EASY and they guarantee a bulge-free outfit.


I feel like mules would have looked amazing with this outfit but I couldn’t find my white Geox mules that I literally wore every single day this summer so I opted for these leather shoes from esso which I’ve had for such a long time but it was one of those shoes you have forever but never wear. I don’t even know why I don’t wear them because they’re so comfortable and stylish! I have picky feet and I’ve never gotten blisters wearing these! It’s almost like not wearing shoes.

This outfit is so simple to put together and the pants are the star show so you could really throw on any top! A white top could work, even grey or brown would be super cute! When you have one statement piece in the outfit, the rest kind of comes naturally!
